In an ideal world, most of us would love to stand on the top of the world, 8,848m high on Mt Everest.
Realistically, most of us will not be able to achieve this! But if you have good fitness and strong determination, you can make it to Everest Base Camp!
And between you and me, the views of Everest from Kalapatthar are the most spectacular you can get without having to spend weeks trudging up to the summit!
Hopefully, you have gone through our sections about the Everest Base Camp Trek and have gathered all the information you need to help you decide when you would like to do this trek, what to bring with you on the EBC trek, and some of the highlights of the trek itself. We believe this is one of the best trekking routes in the world!
The Government of Nepal imposes permit entrance fees to preserve the beauty surrounding Mt. Everest and other mountains in the Himalayan range.
All national parks in Nepal need a permit, and the Sagarmatha National Park is no different. When you compare the cost of the permits to the overall cost of your trip to Nepal and the Everest Region, the amount is relatively small. It is an investment in the future of this beautiful area with its snow, forests, ice, pastures, and culture.
Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay may have been the people to put the Khumbu on the map, but since then, countless mountaineers and trekkers have enjoyed the beauty of the likes of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Goyko Lakes, and much more. Let’s ensure this area stays as it is for future trekkers and Nepali people.
For the Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek, you need entrance permits as explained below:-
Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit (NPR 2000 Per Person)
Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit (NPR 3000 Per Person)
