You can collect it through the trekking/travel company you are using for your  Everest Base Camp Short Trek.

To obtain these permits, trekkers can either apply individually or through a registered trekking agency in Nepal. The permits can be obtained in Kathmandu or Lukla, the starting point of the trek.

Must Know Information 
High Altitude Sickness
High altitude sickness is a condition that can occur when our body is not adapting well to having less atmospheric pressure and oxygen at high altitudes. It typically affects individuals who are not acclimatized to high altitudes and can be potentially dangerous if progresses to more severe forms without treatment. 
Causes of Altitude Sickness
Low Atmospheric Pressure: The decrease in atmospheric pressure is primarily due to the thinner air at high altitudes. Low atmospheric pressure at high altitudes has several effects on the human body and develops altitude illness. 
Less Oxygen:  The primary factor in altitude sickness, oxygen pressure becomes thinner at higher altitudes. This leads to hypoxia, in this condition body tissues have inadequate oxygen.
Rapid Ascent: Ascending to high altitude rapidly does not give your body enough time to adjust to the changing altitude and the reduced oxygen levels.
Sometimes, it may occur due to: 
Impure Water from local taps/streams/river
Consumption of excessive alcohol 
Excessive smoking at higher altitude 
Food Contaminant
Existing health issues

Sometimes, you may not get the item you want in the mountain during the trekking trip/touring trip, at the time; you have to consider it very calmly. 

You will enjoy freshly cooked meals in the mountain during the trip days with local ingredient 

Trek Start 

The trek commences from Kathmandu with a drive to Manthali during Spring and then flies to Lukla and Autumn( Mar-May and Sep-Nov) and in other off seasons like Winter and Rainy ( Dec-Feb and Jun-Aug) Kathmandu to Lukla. We drive to Ramechhap, Manthali for 4 hours from Kathmandu and take a short 20-minute flight and if we take a direct flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, you will fly for 35 minutes with astonishing mountain views. 

We need to leave Kathmandu at 2  am for the Ramechhap drive and then fly to Lukla. Hope you will consider this thing in your mind beforehand the trip begins. 

As you land at Lukla airport either from Ramechhap/ Manthali or Kathmandu, you will meet your porters, introduce them briefly and begin the formal walk towards Phakding, the very first town you are going to stay overnight on your trip. It takes around 3 hours to get Phakding from Lukla. 

Electricity

You will get a good and undisturbed facility of electricity during the trip to Nepal. Even though you go to the mountain for trekking and other adventure activities, you can get the facility of electricity to charge your phones and backups. However, in some cases you may have to face the problem of load-shedding and the local lodges and guesthouses may charge you some amount to charge your batteries, backups and phones in remote areas trekking. There won’t be an electricity heating system in the mountain while doing trekking or other adventure activities.  

Drinking Water

Drinking water must be pure, safe and contamination-free. You can get bottled or purified drinking water during the trip even in the mountain which is very safe for you to drink. The majority of the people who make trekking or adventure trips in the mountains go with boiled water which is prepared by the local lodges/guesthouses on the trail which is the best way to keep you safe from contaminated water. However, some people carry water purifying ingredients and they apply it to the drinking water and they drink it. But, don’t try to drink the water from the Local River, stream and taps. The bottled water you can buy along the trek in the guesthouse.

Communication 

You can enjoy excellent facilities of communication in Kathmandu. However, in the case of the trekking trip in the mountains, you may not be able to have such kind of facility as in the cities. But, most of the local teahouses/lodges/ guesthouses/ hotels on the trail will offer you the facility of  Wi-fi. Sometimes, you get it for free and sometimes, you may have to pay for the installation of Wi-fi during the trip in the mountains. 

The best way to access good communication over your smartphone is to get a local Nepali SIM Card like NT and NCELL. You get these local Nepali SIM Cards easily in Kathmandu and even in International Airport, Tribhuvan International Airport. For this, you have to present a copy of your passport and a passport-sized- photograph. You can buy a data pack via this local SIM Card and you make a very good communication wherever you go, even from the corner of the mountain.  You can make a call, access the internet over it and even make a video call instantly from the Everest Base Camp (5364m).

Trek Ends 

The trek ends at Lukla officially with a flight to Kathmandu. Normally, at Lukla, you can celebrate the last day of the trek with your entire trekking crew by offering them tips and heavy dinner because they have worked hard for you and your safety all around the trip. The last day's walk is from Namche to Lukla and you wait for the next day’s flight to Kathmandu or Ramechhap and then 4 hours drive to Kathmandu. The flight to Ramechhap is for 20 minutes and the flight to Kathmandu from Lukla is for 40 minutes. Optionally, you fly back to Kathmandu directly by helicopter as well. For this, you have to make a prior request to us to arrange your helicopter flight. 

Important Note

The Lukla weather keeps changing in 15 minutes so it cannot be 100% sure that the flight to Ramechhap or Kathmandu from Lukla can take place at a given time. It may get delayed postponed or even cancelled for a few days. In this case, don’t panic, don’t get agitated and don’t trouble your trekking leader for the delay, cancellation or postponement of flight. Be calm and talk to your trekking lead to find out the way to escape this situation.

You have two options in this case: the helicopter flight to Kathmandu and walk down to Surke and Paiya for 5 hours and get a jeep ride to Salleri and then to Kathmandu. You’d better approach the helicopter first and then go with a walk down to Surke and Paiya. The walk down to Surke and Paiya is very challenging to follow the trail used by mules; the trail is muddy and slippery. Be careful to follow this trail to Paiya via Surke from Lukla.

If you are doing your Everest Base Camp Trek, you have to have at least one/two spare days. This will help you make your Everest Trek less stressful and less panicked

Trek Extra Personal Expenses 

How prodigal you are? Your trek extra personal expenses depend on it. If you love doing extra expenses on the trip, you will go to topics like alcoholic drinks, extra tea or coffee apart from the meal, tipping, some minor donations, extra snacks on the trail, some urgent personal stuff like clothing or any other equipment you immediately require on the trip in case it gets damaged or stop functioning. And, at the end of the trek, you have to give some tips to your trekking crew. For this, you have to allocate some dollars or Nepali currency. 

Typical Day

The typical trip day begins with a good breakfast. You will have breakfast at around 7-8 am and begin the day after it. Then, you will have to work/walk for 3-4 hours after breakfast and you will stop for lunch. The lunchtime will be around an hour. You will order your lunch item and the restaurant/hotel/teahouse will cook for you. Sometimes, you may have to wait for some time if the restaurant or hotel is crowded. You can find the item you want in the menu prepared by the local lodge/restaurant/hotel. If you are vegetarian, no worries, you can still find the ways. 

After lunch, you will resume your work/trek/trip again and end it in the after like around 3-4 pm. After that, you will check in the hotel/guesthouse/teahouse and get refreshed.

Out of hundred people, 5 or sometimes 10 people can not or don’t make it to base camp. There are few reasons like high altitude sickness and other health issues. Altitude sickness is the major reason that can affect one on the trail while ascending at the highest elevation and sometimes, the trekkers have to surrender to it and give up the walk to Everest Base Camp and consequently they happen to waste their time and money.

    There are two Everest Base Camps: One is on the Nepal side and the other on the Tibetan Side/Chinese Side. However, the Everest Base Camp Nepal Side is more popular than the Everest Base Camp on the Tibetan side because it’s easier to climb and most of the expeditions are done through Nepali Side Everest Base Camp and Everest Base Camp Treks too.


     From the point of altitude sickness and walking pace, Nepal’s Everest Base Camp is far better than Tibetan side Everest Base Camp. Actually, Everest Base Camp on the Tibetan side is not as popular as the Everest Base Camp Tibetan Side for trekking and expeditions and climbing.

So, going up to 5000m is not easy trek and easy task in one’s life and the mountains are always unpredictable and  wild. In the beginning, up to Namche Bazaar and Tengboche, the Everest Base Camp Trek tends to be moderate and then turns to be challenging due to high altitude. Therefore, it requires a good level of fitness, comprehensive preparations, at least 6-7 hours walking stamina at higher altitude like above 4000m above the sea level. 

    It is because people may be willing to do Everest Base Camp Trek but may not get all sufficient 14-16 days to spend in the mountain all the way to Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla and Kathmandu. So, targeting these people’s interests, budget and time framing, we have designed Everest Base Camp Short trek which can be completed in 12 days from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. At the same time, you may wonder how it can be possible. Yes, it’s possible with 12 days to do Everest Base Camp Trek with two days acclimatization: One at Namche and the other at Dignbcohe. Everest Base Camp Short Trek doesn’t mean that you will be taken quickly to Everest Base Camp and taken back in the same rapid. No worries, you will have all facilities and the proper pacing with all required acclimatization with this Everest Base Camp Short Trek itinerary-12 days.

    The shortest trek to Everest Base Camp trek is Short Everest  Base Camp Trek-12 days from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. This short Everest Base Camp Trek is all walking trip without taking any helicopter flight from Kalapatthar or Everest Base Camp. But, if you are willing to fly out from Kalapattahr/Everest Base Camp after you step at Everest Base Camp (5463m), the shortest trek to Everest Base Camp is Everest Base Camp Trek with helicopter fly out 10 days.
