Permits Required

Everest Panorama Trek, located in the majestic Himalayas of Nepal, is a dream adventure for many outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. However, before embarking on this awe-inspiring journey, it is essential to obtain the necessary permits to ensure a smooth and legal trekking experience. Three permits are required for the Everest Panorama Trek, the TIMS (Trekkers' Information Management System) card, the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit, and the Khumbu Area Entry Permit.

The TIMS card is an important document that tracks trekkers' information for their safety and security. It is issued by the Nepal Tourism Board and is mandatory for all trekkers. The TIMS card helps to keep a record of trekkers' itineraries and ensures that necessary rescue and medical services can be provided in case of emergencies. It also helps to monitor the flow of tourists and collect data on trekking activities in the region. TIMS Card Costs $20 per person. You can collect it through the trekking/travel company you are using for your Everest Base Camp Trekking.

The Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit is required to enter the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that encompasses the Everest region. The permit aims to conserve the natural and cultural heritage of the area and funds various conservation and development projects. It is issued by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation and allows trekkers to explore the stunning landscapes, diverse flora and fauna, and the unique Sherpa culture of the region. It costs $30 per person.

The Khumbu Area Entry Permit is another crucial permit required for the Everest Base Camp trek. It is issued by the local government of the Khumbu region and serves to manage and regulate trekking activities in the area. The permit fees contribute to local development projects, infrastructure improvements, and environmental conservation efforts. It has been in the implementation for the last 5 years. It costs $20 per person. 

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. It is important to carry these permits throughout the trek and present them at various checkpoints along the route.

In conclusion, Everest Panorama Trek requires three permits: the TIMS card, the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit, and the Khumbu Area Entry Permit. These permits not only ensure a legal and organized trekking experience but also contribute to the preservation and sustainable development of the Everest region. Obtaining these permits allows trekkers to immerse themselves in the breathtaking beauty of the Himalayas and experience the rich culture and hospitality of the Sherpa people. Please, do not board on the trek until you collect these three different permits.

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 technical problems.

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 and other major cities like Chitwan, Pokhara, Nagarkot and Lumbini. 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

Your feedback about the trip will always be taken positively. We need it to grow and to sharpen our services and facilities in the days to come.

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. 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.
