For the Everest Base Camp Budget trek, several permits are necessary to ensure compliance with local regulations and to support the region's infrastructure and conservation efforts. Here are the main permits required for the trek:

Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit (SNP): This permit is mandatory for entering Sagarmatha National Park, where Mount Everest and the Everest Base Camp are located. It contributes to the conservation and preservation of the natural environment. The cost of the SNP permit varies for foreigners and is generally higher for non-SAARC nationals.

Khumbu Rural/Municipality Entry Permit: This permit is obtained from the local government authority in the Khumbu region and supports the local community. The fee for this permit also varies for foreigners and Nepalese citizens.

The disconut is only possible while you are travelling with your own group but incase compony have to arrange for you then the cost will be same.Lesser the amount you paid the less you get facilities that we provide. You can enjoy your Everest Base Camp Budget Trek in private.We will include your personal needs and requirements throughout the trek.

Yes, most of the hotels and tea houses have electricity facilities through solar pannel but one thing, we need to remember is during the cold month, there is no possilbe to recharge solar battery. In that time we'll find electricity in limited shop. 

 

The trekking duration depends on the type and place of trekking that you have chosen. However, in this trek trekkers need to hike for 7-8 hours a day and approximately need to complete 15 km. And you will normally climb about 600m of altitude per day. 

Additional Information

Meals

We will provide you welcome and farewell dinner in Kathmandu. However only breakfast and dinner will be provided during the trek

Physical condition & Requirements

his trek is specially designed for the travelers having low budget and willingness to trek to EBC. There are not special conditions required but they must be able to carry their bags themselves, if they cannot carry their bags then they will have to pay for the porters.  Travelers having past hiking experience would be assets to the trek. But no such experience is required. It will be very helpful if you start doing some exercise and start having some energy boosting diets a month prior to the trek.
