  • Everest Base Camp Kalapathar trek with View Nepal Treks jJRujX2iD9frCKbrhypX

    I consider my finding of View Nepal Treks to be a real fortune. During the search phase I was recommended by a friend who have taken the service with them and he said services and tourist products offered by the company is competitive. During the negotiation phase I enjoyed efficiency with which my queries were handled. This made the decision-making on the Everest Base Camp Kalapathar trek stress-free and really easy. And my personal encounter with the company was even better. The company delivered to the promise. Logistical arrangements, including airport pickups, hotel in Kathmandu, accommodations and meals during the trek, were impeccable and my guide Dev and porter Dawa sherpa were professional and friendly.I would like to praise the company for the ability to attract very interesting and pleasant people to work for them. In summary, I feel honored to join the group and I am satisfied with their service and I am happy to recommend View Nepal Treks to my friends and all other people planning a trip to Nepal. As for me, now View Nepal company is my main entry point into the world of trekking and adventure trip in Nepal. Visited October 2016

Frequently Asked Questions

This is one of the exciting treks on world highest mountain base camp; walk is moderate but adventurous due to high altitude of above 3,000 meters. We have set enough rest days to get acclimatize well before heading to Everest base camp at 5,334 m / 15,500 ft high.
Depending upon the season of trekking, autumn and winter months can get cold above 2,000 meters especially morning and night time but the day is pleasant with sunny days most of the season. Other season beside monsoon / wet months is pleasant with occasional thunder showers during late afternoon.
As you will be trekking on mainstream trekking trails, the lodges are nice and cozy with attached bathrooms available till Namche, from then on lodge are simple and basic but clean with common bathrooms. Foods are as per the menu from Nepali set meals of Dal Bhat, Noodles (soup or fired) continental / Chinese to Mexican and Italian with Indian verities. It is better to stick with vegetarian food while on trek as it is not healthy due to hygiene. Higher above 4,000 m food menu are limited due to remoteness and high terrain climate conditions.
