All International flights will arrive & depart from:

Kathmandu International Airport in Nepal

There will be a driver from our team at the airport to pick you up and take you to the Hotel.

Flights must be flexible.

Make sure flights are able to be changed if needed leaving Nepal.

After our hike, We fly domestically from another airport back to Kathmandu and if there are any weather delays and we get stuck, you may need to change your international flight back home.

We’ve allotted a window of time to try and accommodate any delays but in the Himalayas there are no guarantees.

Hiking & Trip Facts:

We will send you more detailed trip info once you sign up.

How many miles is EBC?

80 Miles Round Trip.

We will be hiking over rough, uneven terrain and very rocky terrain for an average of 6–8 hours per day

How Many Days will we be hiking?

11 total with days to acclimatize on the trail.

What is the altitude of this hike?

We will be hiking above 10,000 ft. 

Everest Base Camp is 17,598 ft.

Why are higher altitude hikes more challenging?

The challenge with hiking at higher altitudes is that the air is thinner & there is less oxygen, making it more difficult to breathe. We will be hiking at a very slow pace & taking many breaks along the way.

Our hiking route has been carefully planned to allow for proper acclimatization and our guides have been trained to recognize symptoms of AMS (acute mountain sickness).  Our guides will also carry a supply of Diamox that can be used to treat mild symptoms. Our team of support has decades of experience in handling these circumstances and will do everything possible to ensure your safety along the trek.

Training for EBC:

The EBC requires being in good physical shape but you don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to sign up. Most people that exercise a few days a week will be fit enough to do the hike.

If you don’t exercise yet, you will be required to have a training program leading up to the trip. We can help you with this. This is going to be both physically and mentally tough and you want to be in your best shape to feel good and have an enjoyable experience.

Will I be carrying all of my stuff on the trail?

No we will have porters who will carry our main bags but you will be carrying a 30-40 liter day pack. 

You will keep all of your layers, water, snacks, and camera in this bag.

What are the sleeping arrangements on the trail?

We will stay in tiny Sherpa villages & sleep in tea houses with shared rooms and bathrooms. Most tea houses do not have hot water.

Tea houses are family-run guesthouses and are an integral part of the trekking experience

Food on the Trail:

Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

All of your meals include tea & coffee. You will be able to order off the menu at each tea house. Choices will be a mix of local cuisines and international dishes.

Weather on EBC:

The temperature and weather will vary quite a bit as you make your way to higher elevations.

EBC is our highest elevation of the hike.

We will be hiking in October.

Average High at EBC: 39 degrees
Average Low at EBC: 21 degrees

Just got back from the most amazing trip to Machu Picchu in Peru with Travessesd!! It was truly an adventure trip of a lifetime! I can’t say enough good things about Kim and Erran and the whole Travessed experience- from start to finish it was perfectly planned and executed with a focus on excellent, beautiful, epic adventures where we were immersed in the local culture of Peru

Travsessed Peru was the most well-thought-out, adventurous, incredible trip! Kim and Erran do such an amazing job at creating a culturally immersive and unique journey! The group was an instant family that motivated and inspired each other the whole way! I couldn’t have planned a better trip to Peru, and I wouldn’t trade the memories, tears, laughter and love for anything!

We always leave room for some FREE TIME, but we’re together 95% of the time!!!

That being said our trips are pretty go go go & if you need to rest or recharge you are always free to opt out of an activity for some alone time!!

All you have to do is get yourself there….we take care of the rest!! 

I’m nervous to book because I have never traveled outside the country before, there are lots of things that I do not know how to do, and what if I make a mistake.

When we say we have you covered, we have you covered.  We provide a FB Group, WhatsApp Group Chat, direct access to us via email, so we can walk you through anything you might not know how to do.

We also send you a packing list, places and restaurants to check out during your downtime,  how to get local currency, tips, local facts to familiarize yourself with the local area, visa information, customs information, and will provide video details of airports, and will have a driver there that we are in constant contact with and have worked with before to pick you up from the airport and bring you to the hotel where we will be there to greet you and get you checked into your hotel room.

In other words, We got you!!! 

Yes, it is mandatory for all guests on Travsessed Adventures to have personal travel insurance for the duration of the trip. We recommend you book your travel insurance as soon as you make your trip deposit to protect your investment. (We will send more info about insurance upon booking)

All payments are non-refundable. If the trip must be postponed or cancelled due to events beyond our control, you will be offered the choice between a full refund and applying your payments to a future trip.

The reason payments are non-refundable is that we start incurring costs from the moment someone signs up — from credit card fees to our local vendors & organizers coordinating and booking everything on the ground for our group and beyond.

Thank you so much for your understanding and respect of our need to enforce this policy strictly. 
We are excited to share so many incredible adventures with you.
