When to go (Best Season to Travel)

Autumn (Mid September-Mid December) and Spring (March-May) are the best season for the Everest View trek. The weather during the season is sunny and warm during the day that offers you to enjoy the magnificent view of the Himalayan range whereas the nights are chilling and cold and can fall to freezing in the higher elevations. Winter (Dec, Jan and Feb) is also ideal for EBC trek but cold is something that bothers you. Trekking during summer will be affected by rain but summer trek could be a boon of a keen botanist. The trekking routes are always busy with trekkers during spring and autumn but during monsoon and winter the routes are not packed and crowded and you can have a great journey enjoying the scenic views.

A typical day on the trail (What’s a day like in a trail?)
Your day starts with a warm cup of tea in the morning. After freshening we have our breakfast and put the gear on to kick off the trekking expedition. After few hours of walk we have our lunch and set off to reach our determined destination. Throughout the day we take frequent breaks and take time to enjoy the fascinating mountain views. We also halt frequently for taking photograph of panoramic mountains, rivers, beautiful Himalayas, temples, shrines, monasteries etc. After arriving at our tea house, we freshen up and take some light meal/snacks and have a nice discussion with the trekking crew. Following a warm dinner in a cozy dining hall our trek leader would brief you on the next day’s Itinerary. Next morning after breakfast we pack our things and put on the gear to start yet another exciting day in the trail. You can spend the extra time in reading or writing as per your convenience.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is highly recommended for trekkers who plan their trekking in the Himalayas. Travel insurance is mandatory while going for trekking, hiking etc in Nepal. Please make sure that your insurance policy covers personal injury, medical expenses, repatriation expenses, helicopter rescue, loss of luggage, etc. We strongly recommend that your policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Please check with your insurance company that adventure activities and trekking above 3000m are covered by your policy. You must carry proof of insurance (i.e. your insurance certificate) with you during your expedition. Through trekking in the Everest region is a safe journey, it is always better to stay in a safe side.

Meals and Accommodation

We will arrange three or four star hotel for your accommodation (Upgradable upon request) in Kathmandu. During the Everest Short trek we provide the best available guest house which is called Tea house/Lodge. Tea Houses are like hotels that serve with hot showers, western foods and private rooms (twin sharing). Some guest houses are ordinary guest house with shared washing and toilet facilities and comparatively cheap in price. If you are travelling in a group, you will share a room with one of the group member with same sex. If you wish to stay single in a room then you have to let us know in advance and some surcharges are applicable in such case. Please be noted that there are several guest houses that do not allow a single accommodation during the peak season so sharing the room with somebody becomes a compulsion. We will arrange your dinner and early breakfast in the guest house itself but the lunches will be arranged in some restaurants en route. Your stay at a local guest house helps you to be more familiar with local culture and traditions.

Breakfree Adventures is highly concerned about the standard of food and make sure that sufficient food is provided to our guest. A special menu will be offered so that you could choose the kind of food you like to eat. A cup of tea or coffee would be included in your meal menu.

The menu comes with comparatively high price due to the availability of food items and spices and extreme locations. Most of the tea houses serve you with delicious local cuisines along with international foods. You can get food items like biscuits, chocolates, cold drinks, soft drinks and seasonal fruits and veggies. Bottled water is always available in the tea house and restaurants or shops en route. You may ask your guide to fill the bottle with boiled water from the lodges and purify them with purification pills.

Breakfree Adventures’s eleven days Everest View Trek is planned with high degree of awareness about Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Trekking in the higher altitude too fast might cause a medical condition serious enough to cause death. The level of oxygen fluctuates as the height increases. For example, at an altitude above 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Our body requires many days to adapt the less-oxygen environment the itinerary should be planned accordingly. Our itinerary is planned in such a way that it provides sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible trek plan is therefore very crucial to minimize the risk of AMS. Breakfree Adventures highly advises specially the guests with known heart, blood or respiratory diseases to consult their medical professional before travelling. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorder are symptoms of AMS. Our leaders are well trained to administer the AMS. Breakfree Adventures’s itineraries are designed to avert the risk of AMS as much as possible.
