    My brother and I decided to embark on a lifelong adventure and visit Nepal. We went through the NTA to reach the Everest base camp trek in 7 days. Every detail of the trip was taken care of, and the team was thorough and thoughtful in planning our adventure so that we could have the ultimate experience. Our food and lodging (even breakfast!) were thoughtfully planned, and we had the opportunity to go on additional hikes to see the magnificent views of Mount Everest. Wow! After returning to the city we were treated to a special ethnic dinner - the experience could not be more unique and special.

    I didn't know what to expect when I started the EBC 7 days trek with a Heli ride back. But there was a good trekking company (NTA) that provided me with real-time information and stayed with me. When I faced challenges, my guide would give me the right kind of advice and practical tips to reassure me and overcome the challenges. Thank you so much to NTA and the team for your support from start to finish.

What type of accommodation is available during the trek?

You will stay in a standard room in a five-star hotel in Kathmandu. On the hiking trails, you will stay at the tea house, hotel or lodge. The tea house, hotel, or lodge will have all the basic amenities like a bed, pillow, and blanket. It is wise to carry a sleeping bag for extra warmth on a cold night at a high altitude.

Can I add more days to my trekking trip?

Yes, the number of trekking days is flexible and we can adjust the days according to your time and priority. For better relaxation, it is best to trek for several days more for acclimatization.

Are there any risks for women and solo hikers?

For every trek in Nepal, Nepal Trek Adventure suggests you take a guide and a porter for your safety. Many female hikers and solo hikers fear that there is more risk for them, and they will hide their dreams and go to Everest base camp. But there is really no risk for any hiking. You will be safe in the hands of the NTA team. Our company can guarantee that single female trekkers are safe to trek alone with our guide and porter. If necessary, we will provide experienced women guides for women's hiking.

Can you perform an EBC trek without a guide?

Yes, you can try hiking at Everest base camp without a guide. But you should not take a guide for good weather and easy conditions: a guide is to keep you strong and safe in foreign lands when the situation is bad.

Are there any hot shower services available on the trek?

Yes, hot showers are available with additional charges.

What is the highest point of this trek?

The highest point of this trek is 5545 meters (Kala Patthar- the highest viewpoint).

Will anyone come to greet me at the airport?

Yes, upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, a representative of our company will be there to greet and welcome you and transfer you to the respective five-star hotel.
