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

You can give feedback on the trek/trip you have undertaken at the end of Kathmandu. You can visit our office or you can do it in the farewell dinner we organize. 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.

If you cannot attend the farewell dinner at the end of the trip in Kathmandu or you don’t have time to visit our office, you can write your feedback on the trip advisor page which will be more reliable and public. 

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.
