and its importance which our professional guide will explain. Not only

Trek to Everest is everyone's dream
so, Himalaya Club Tours and Travel provides an Everest trek service package for those who are highly interested in Everest. If you are interested in doing some different with the Everest trek with longer days, we have some other popular packages
Everest base camp via Jiri – 22 Days, and the Everest three-pass trek – 21 Days, which are more adventurous and challenging.
After arrival in Kathmandu, we transferred to our hotel, which is in the peaceful street on the edge of Thamel. We
provide you with a deluxe room with a private bathroom and balcony, a Tea/Coffee maker, and toiletries. Hotels are 3-star categories by the government of Nepal.
The above package price includes 3-star category hotels however we also provide
4-star and 5-star hotels in Kathmandu. But during the trek, there is only Tea
House/Lodge which doesn’t have any facility except the twin bed. All the rooms
are in “twin share”. Single supplementary will charge $250 extra. In Kathmandu, hotels have 24/7 receptions while the trekking recitation is closed after 9-10 pm. In some places during
trekking, we have private bathrooms but in some areas, there is only a shared
bathroom. The entire place has a 24/7 hot water facility but during tea house in
the trek, it is chargeable.
For meals, we provide a Buffet Breakfast in Kathmandu which is
included in the cost. We also serve lunch and dinner from our hotel restaurant where
you must pay for yourself. However, during trekking, we provide three meals
per day (i.e. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) from the selected menu as available
in the lodge and tea house. Food during the trek is not as well decorated as in Kathmandu.
However; most of the food is prepared by the local people in their field. The
food is organic, delicious, and quite healthy. We also offer a Welcome and
Farewell dinner with our agency team leader with a traditional cultural dance
program in Kathmandu.

Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Everest Base Camp. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan., and Feb.) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the Summer or Monsoon seasons (June to Aug.) will be affected by rain but the Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
