Best Time To Go

The ideal seasons for Everest trekking are Spring (March to May) and Autumn  (September to November). Trekking in Autumn (post-monsoon) promises clear skies and stunning mountain vistas. In Spring (pre-monsoon) wildflowers will be in bloom and it would be divine to walk on alpine meadows filled with flowers and colorful rhododendron blooms. The higher you go the colder it’s going to be. Above 4000 meters, you can expect snow and temperatures to plummet below zero degrees. Nighttime temperatures can drop as low as -10 degrees.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No, the summit of Mount Everest is not visible from Everest Base Camp.  Rising above 8000 metres, the mountain is just too gigantic to be viewed in its entirety from its base. The summit of Everest can be viewed from Kala Patthar and from places en route to EBC. If you want to view Mount Everest without having to trek to Everest region, you can do it by driving to Nagarkot, taking an Everest Mountain Flight and an Everest Base Camp HelicopterTour. The best view you get of Mount Everest is from Kala Patthar. 

 Your Everest Base Camp Trek cost depends largely on the type of services you seek. If you want to go solo(without using the services of an agency and without guide or porters) it may cost you a lot less but you may have a lot to deal with. Like getting the permits, finding a suitable place to stay and eat at each stop or figuring out whether you are on the right trail.

Booking with a trusted company like Third Rock Adventures may cost you a little more but this will make your travel less stressful. Booking with us will save you a lot of hassle and ensure a smooth trip. Do check the price include and exclude section to find out  the kind of services you can avail on our package and book your trip.  

These are the best months to do this trek, as the weather is mild and the temperatures range from 12 to 15 degrees. The skies generally remain clear and the days are pleasant and warm. You can expect an occassional spring shower and hazy weather during April. The mountain views are stunning in September, as there is more snow on the mountains. Nights can be freezing as the temperture dips after sun down. 

No, it is not possible to include a camp night at the EBC. The only campers at the Base Camp are the expedition teams, who are preparing to summit Mount Everest. Also there are no lodges at the Everest Base Camp, and the temperatures could drop to subzero during the night. It will be more comfortable for you to stay at the lodge in Gorak Shep. 

Yes, you can book a Solo trek if you wish. We offer both Private and Group joining options to our clients. Travelling solo with just your guide and porter will give you more space and flexibility while trekking. You can walk at your own pace and stop at places to photograph as you wish. However joining a group will help you  bring down the cost of your trip.   

 Airport authorities at Tribhuvan International Airport have notified that from October to November, 2019 the airport will remain closed from 10PM to 8AM for runway maintenance work. As flights to Lukla are scheduled in the early hours, private airline companies (including Tara Air) have decided to conduct their flights to Lukla from Manthali Airport in Ramechhap. The airport lies about four hours’ drive from Kathmandu. If you already booked your trip with us you need not worry, as we will drive you to the airport at no extra cost. If you have booked your tickets directly with the airline company you will have to contact them to find out about their transportation arrangement. 

You are absolutely right that the international airport will undergo renovation and maintenance between October to November 2019. All the flights to Lukla from Kathmandu, booked within this time frame will not be hampered.  A slight change has been implemented; instead of flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, all clients will be driven to Ramechhap airport from Kathmandu and then they will fly from here to Lukla and vice- versa. The drive from Kathmandu to Ramechhap is 4 to 5 hours.

This slight change will not affect your itinerary in anyway. Everything will move forward as planned.

Alternatively, one can also opt for the classic  Everest Base Camp Trek which normally commences from the small town of Jiri or Salleri. This infact is the oldest route to Everest Base Camp and has been used by many famous mountaineers before the airport in Lukla was built. IF you choose the classic route, you will also get an opportunity to view the lower hills of solu region, which has been ignored by many over the years ever since Lukla became the gateway to Everest.

 Spring and Autumn are the two main trekking seasons. Spring is also the season when many climbers try to summit their chosen mountains in the Himalayas. Trekking to Everest Base Camp during spring season will be much warmer then trekking in autumn. There will be wildflowers on the way and the rhododendron trees will be in full bloom. The trail to Tengboche and Deboche will be lined with red, pink and white rhododendron shrubs. 

When you hike to Everest Base Camp you will be greeted with a cheerful sight. Colourful tents of expedition groups will be propped up in the barren landscape. The place will be a hive of activity. Sherpas will be busy trying to fix ropes while many climbers will be on the Khumbu Icefall honing their skills. You can pop into one of the tents of the expedition groups and say hello, who knows you might come across a celebrity or a famous adventurer. 
Altitude Mountain Sickness usually occurs due to lack of oxygen on high altitude region, usually above 8000 ft/2500m. In order to avoid altitude sickness, we have plenty of acclimatization days so that you can acclimatize properly before heading to a higher altitude. In case of a severe attack of AMS, we will bring you down immediately to lower altitude.

From Wall Street to EBC

I was so invested in building my career that I had not taken a vacation for almost three years. Working for a real estate firm in Wall Street without a break left me burnt out and struggling with insomnia. That’s when my family and physician told me strongly that it’s high time I took a break. With no fixed destinations in mind I trawled the internet looking for inspiration. I randomly chose a few tours and treks and sent a few enquiries. The first reply that I received was from Third Rock Adventures. I had enquired about their Everest Base Camp Trek and they sent me a detailed response. They explained clearly about the physical and mental challenges that I would face on the mountains and how I should train my body before taking this trip. They also offered a couple of easy options (treks). But after reading the experiences and watching vlogs of those who had done this trek, I decided I wanted to do this particular trek. Though I had sent enquiries to some international travel companies too, I finally went with Third Rock because they sounded sincere and genuinely seemed to care about what I wanted.

Getting to Everest Base Camp, I tell you was not easy. But it was worth all the sweat and physical hardships. It was worth flying thousands of miles to do it. It sounds clichéd but the mountains are really beautiful. The trek brought me close to nature and reminded me about the beauty of small things; like how comforting it is to feel the breeze and sit under the shade of a tree on a hot day. I would say the highlight of my trip was not reaching EBC but the journey itself, the people I met on the way and the places we crossed. The contentment and happiness of the local people that I met on the trail has made me revaluate my life goals. Thanks to Third Rock Adventures for organizing this inspirational trip for me. A shout out to Deepack and Giri too, my guide and porter on the trial without whose support and encouragement I wouldn’t have made it to base camp. A five star to this company and its people!

Everest Base Camp trek was once in a lifetime experience. The trek wasn’t easy but the spectacular views made it a rewarding trip. The view of Everest from Kalapatthar was overwhelming. We were blessed to have a pretty much decent weather. It was nice to have someone handle all the logistics and I could just enjoy the trek and soak into the beauty of the region. Thank you to the team of Third Rock Adventures for making my trip memorable.

Trekking to Everest is awesome and if you are thinking of doing it then go for it. It's worth your time and money.
