Luggage and Storage 
If you are hiring a porter for your trip in the mountains, you can pack no more than 10 kg. in the duffel bag or your backpack. We provide you with a very reliable duffel bag to put your stuff to be carried on the trip. It will be very safe to be carried by a porter. Because it is the Nepal labour rule that a porter can only maximum of 18 kgs in the mountain. Please, don’t pack unnecessary stuff in the duffel bag. Actually, two people can share one duffel bag and one porter by putting 9k stuff by each individual.
If you think you don’t need the stuff you have with you in the mountains, you can store it at the hotel in Kathmandu or even in Pokhara if you are passing through it. The best way to keep your unnecessary stuff is in the Kathmandu hotel. They will keep your unnecessary luggage/stuff very safe till your return back. Ask your trip leader or hotel receptionist to do it for you before you depart for the trip. Don’t forget to take the luggage tag while storing the unnecessary luggage. 
Meals
Meals will be provided according to the itinerary and cost includes and cost excludes. If you are given the itinerary or cost like including BB only, you will be provided breakfast only and if you have booked the trip package including a full-board meal, you will get all the meals including breakfast, dinner and lunch. Apart from main meals, if you have tea, coffee, cold drinks and other alcoholic drinks, you have to pay them personally. 
During the trip, you will be given enough time to have a meal. You can enjoy the meal you like from the menu. Vegan, Vegetarian?? If you are vegetarian, you will still find the choice in the menu and our guide will take good care of you through the trip. 
You will have your meal at the lodge/local guesthouse, hotel or resort during the trip. You are supposed to have the meal where you stay overnight in the mountain during the trekking trip. 
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 Starts 
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 6 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. 
Actually, we need to leave Kathmandu at midnight like 12-1 am for the midnight for Rahechhap 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 2-3 hours to get Phakding from Lukla. 
Electricity and Water
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 for free. 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 like Rs. 100-200 to charge your batteries, backups and phones in remote areas trekking like upper Mustang Trekking, Upper Dolpo Trekking, Annapurna Circuit Trekking and Manaslu Circuit Trekking. Otherwise, in Annapurna region trekking and Everest Region trekking, you don’t need to pay for battery, phone and backup charging on the trail. But, there won’t be an electricity heating system in the mountain while doing trekking or other adventure activities.  Unlike that, you can enjoy all kinds of electricity heating systems in the city tours like Kathmandu City Tour, Pokhara, Chitwan and Lumbini Tour, Nagarkot and Namobouddha Tour. 
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 costs between Rs.100-300 which is 1 liter in the mountain. 
Communication 
You can enjoy excellent facilities of communication in Kathmandu and other major cities like Chitwan, Pokhara, Nagarkot and Lumbini. However, in case of a 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 like Rs.100-200 per device for the installation of Wi-fi during the trip in the mountain.
In remote areas trekking like Manaslu Circuit Trek, Annapurna Circuit Trek, Kanchenjungha Circuit Trek and Upper Mustang Trek, charge a certain amount like Rs.200-400 per device for the installation of Wi-fi at the local lodges. Otherwise, in Annapurna Base Camp Trek and Everest Base Camp Trek, they don’t charge you money for the facility Wi-fi, they will offer you for free.
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, you access the internet over it and even make a video call instantly from the Everest Base Camp (5364m) and even from Larkya La Pass (5106m) in Manaslu Circuit Trek.
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 6 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 one is a 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. Actually, 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, at least some or a little. 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 like to have on 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.

Therefore, one requires preparing very well with a boosted stamina for walking at least 7 hours above 4000m. You also have to have very reliable trekking equipment and professional trekking crew for your EBC trek.

Until Namche Bazaar (3400m) and Tengboche( 3860m), the EBC Trek seems easy or moderate for the trekkers. As you ascend from Tengboche to Dingboche, you feel a bit harder and you will feel really tough while ascending from Lobuche to Gorekhshep, Everest Base Camp and Kalapattahr.  Actally, even some trekkers cannot do Everest Base Camp Trek or EBC Trek and they require rescue due to high altitude sickness.

So, the trekkers who don’t want to fly out from Kalapatthar while returning back from Everest Base Camp, they follow 10 days Everest Base Camp Trek with helicopter fly out and those who want to trek back along the same trail back to Namche and Lukla from Everest Base Camp without flying by helicopter, they follow 14 days Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary.

However, even the beginners can go up to Namche Bazar and Everest View Hotel and can see Mt. Everest. But. The beginners shouldn’t try to go Everest Base Camp (5364m) which is very challenging due to high altitude above 5000m above the sea level. The trek grows more difficult after move your footsteps from Tengboche and Dingbcohe till you get to Lobuche(4900m) and Everest Base Camp.  

But still the beginners wish to see Everest right? Yes, if you really excited to see Everest as a beginner, then, you can go with Everest Short Trek/ Everest View Trek or Everest Panorama Trek which will astonish you stunning views of all Himalayan panoramas including Mt. Everest, Nupse, Loatse, Amadablam and Thamaserkhu from Everest View Hotel and the Namche Viewpoint located next to Army camp just above Namche Bazaar. The Everest View Trek or Everest Short Trek will take only one week.

If you do this as a beginner, then, next time you can do Everest Base Camp Trek after you experience the Everest region slightly and its atmosphere and the people on the trail and altitude as well. 

And the final alternative to see Everest from Everest as a beginner is Everest Helicopter Tour which will take you to Everest Base Camp directly from Kathmandu and lets you witness Mt. Everest within 2 hours.
