Autumn (mid Sept to mid Dec) and spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the classic Everest Base Camp Trek. The weather is sunny and warm offering outstanding views but the nights are cold and can fall to freezing in higher elevations. Winter (Dec, Jan, and Feb) is also good for EBC trek, only issue is cold (obviously). Trekking in summer/monsoon (June, July) will be affected by rain but summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. The trekking routes are crowded during spring and autumn but during monsoon and winter the routes are not packed and you could enjoy rather best of nature.

Sherpas live in the upper regions of Solu Khumbu. They emigrated from Tibet about 600 years ago. The Khumbu region has provided a strong group of able bodied, hardy and fearless Sherpa porters and guides. Sherpas practice Tibetan Buddhism which is also known as Lama Buddhism.

The beautiful environment of the Himalayas is also an extremely fragile one. At Destination Nepal Tours & Travels, we are extremely conscious about the environment and aim to minimize the detrimental impact on the environment as much as possible.

Destination Nepal Tours & Travels works with the motto 'Development through Tourism'. Keeping in line with this motto, NT encourages its clients who besides trekking and climbing the Himalayas are also interested in contributing for the development of Nepal.

We ensure that all porters and all other staff climbing in high altitude conditions are provided with adequate clothing and equipment. We ensure that the porters we hire are insured. We run the trek according to the guidelines of the International Porter Protection group (IPPG- www.ippg.net).

On the second day of the itinerary, we host a Pre-Trip short Meeting at the hotel by your trek guide, the primary purpose of the meeting is to provide brief information on your trek and equipments hiring if needed.
Please bring the following thing on the meeting-

We strongly recommend that you check your government's travel advisory for up-to-date information and advice about your destination: safety and security, entry requirements, health, local laws and customs, including advice re: the legality of and local attitudes towards same-sex relationships.

Tipping is the accepted way of saying 'thank you' for good service. Tips do not form part of the wages of your guides, porters and trek crew but they are very much appreciated. It is important to remember that tipping is voluntary and should be dependent on good service. Normally the tips are given at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Most groups will give the tips with a bit of ceremony (or sometimes a party) on the last evening, to mark the end of the trip. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work.

Your booking will be confirmed by email once we receive your deposit of 20% of total trip cost and the signed copy of booking form and contract, 20% of total trip cost is no later than two months prior to departure & the balance 60% of total trip cost after arrival in Kathmandu. If you book a tour less than 2 months prior to departure, you must send the 40% of total trip cost within 7 days of confirmation by us.
