I will never forget that you believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. For that, I will always be grateful.

The CTSS team went above and beyond every step of my journey, from when I booked my EBC trek to after I got home. Big Tendi Sherpa was a wealth of knowledge and thought if every little detail to ensure we made it to camp healthy. We stayed in the best tea houses along the way, and the amenities and service at EBC were next level, from the espresso bar to the massage tent.

CTSS was an amazing guide. They provide all the support required to be able to achieve this big challenge. CTSS provide a lot of information prior and during the trekking to first ensure safety and to facilitate the successful completion of the trek.

Excellent trip, guide Durga Parsed Anchoring was very thorough, and careful being my first time trekking through the Sagarmartha territories. From Lukla to Gorakshep which is the last stop before venturing up to the Everest Base Camp Durga made sure I hiked in the pace that was comfortable to me. I am almost 60 but had trained and hiked extensively in NZ so trail hiking was no stranger but the thin air did make it strenuous. We did two peaks whilst heading to EBC, Nagarjuna and Kala Patthar, the latter at an altitude of 5,555m. Super thrilled I completed the treks without any issue including altitude sickness or the dreaded Khumbu cough. I attributed these through the care given by Durga. He made sure I ate the right food, had enough rest in between and sufficiently hydrated each time ahead of the treks.

Frequently asked questions about Everest Base Camp tours

  • The trek to Everest Base Camp is challenging. It requires strong fitness levels and prior multi-day hiking experience.

    The trek is not technical and you won’t need special equipment or skills to navigate the trails.

    However, it is a high-altitude trek. The thin air makes even simple exertion difficult. There are also long days with uphill climbs and uneven terrain. Being in good physical condition is crucial.

    Altitude sickness is a real risk. The gradual ascent helps with acclimatization, but symptoms like headaches, fatigue, and nausea can occur. Listening to your body and taking rest days is essential.

    So, if you want to do a Himalaya base camp tour, you need to be an intermediate-or-above hiker with preparation, and an ability to handle the challenges of high altitude.

  • The Everest Base Camp Trek is meant for intermediate hikers with prior experience. In theory, it is doable by beginners with phenomenal fitness levels, but it is not recommended

    With good preparation, a moderate fitness level, and a manageable itinerary, beginners can conquer Everest Base Camp. However, it’s important to be realistic about the challenges and choose a tour that suits your experience level.

  • The typical Everest Base Camp trek takes anywhere from 12 to 25 days for a round-trip trek.

    You can do the hiking portion in 8-12 days depending on the chosen route and pace. However, several days are built into most itineraries specifically for acclimatization. This allows your body to adjust to the high altitude and reduces the risk of altitude sickness.
    The total duration of your trip will depend on the specific itinerary you choose, your fitness level, and external factors like weather conditions, which can be a huge issue on a Mount Everest trip.

  • Depends on the itinerary you choose.

    The most common range for the classic Everest Base Camp Trek falls between $1,500 and $2,500 USD. This typically includes comfortable teahouse accommodation, meals, permits, and professional guides.

    For $3,000 USD and upwards, luxury Everest Base Camp tours offer premium amenities like private lodges, helicopter flights for some legs of the journey, and high-end meals.

  • Officially trekking Everest Base Camp solo is no longer possible.

    In April 2023, the Nepal government implemented regulations requiring trekkers to be accompanied by a registered guide. This was done for safety reasons and to ensure responsible tourism practices.

    This was for the better, as trekking in the Himalayas comes with inherent risks like altitude sickness, getting lost, and potential accidents. Having a guide with experience and knowledge of the region can significantly mitigate these risks.
