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.

Hot Shower:

Actually, a warm or hot shower makes you happy and offers you new energy during the trip and it is very necessary. If you are travelling in the city area in Nepal, you will easily get the facility of a hot shower. But, if you are making a trip to the mountains, it may be difficult to get a hot shower during the trip.  However, local lodges and guesthouses will provide a hot shower with a cooking gas geyser or offer you a bucket shower with warm water. Some guesthouses may charge an additional fee for hot showers. Please be prepared to pay a little extra for this.

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).

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. Take rest, change clothing and go for dinner at around 6-7 pm. Your leader will help you to order the meals you like. At the dinner, your leader will share the important information for the next day’s trip and you can raise the question regarding it. The leader will orient you on what to wear, how to walk, what to carry and where to eat. Follow the instructions from the guide/leader very well. 

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. 

Travel Insurance:

Travel Insurance is a must thing to fix before the departure for a particular trip. In case you face a sudden and unpleasant incident during the trip, you may need rescue evacuation and medical expenses. For that, you must have travel insurance. Actually, life is more important than your trip. As long as you have life, you have everything. So that, have authentic travel insurance that covers all rescue evacuation and medication expenses in case you have got some nasty accidents during the trip.

If you have got some idea about travel insurance and the companies who do travel insurance for you, you can go with them, otherwise, you can search on Google and will easily get the travel insurance companies who will help you doing insurance for your trip.

 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
