The rest of the equipment can be bought or rented in Kathmandu. It is much cheaper and convenient than buying it from home and hanging around with it.

Is it difficult to climb up to Everest Base Camp? The only thing that will make it a bit strenuous is the lack of oxygen as you go up. The last quarter of the trip, which is approximately 2 days before reaching Base Camp, becomes a little more complicated. Nothing that cannot be done with great care but keep in mind that it is definitely not a walk in the park.

How much does Everest Base Camp trek cost? An all-inclusive package departing from Kathmandu with a duration of 14 days that will cost between 1,200 and 1,500 USD per person.

  7. I love this post. Going to save it for the future. We'd love to do a Nepal trip when our son is a little older and I've wondered about different treks people do. I always tell my husband, I have no interest in climbing Everest, but I'd like to hike around it. These pictures are amazing, I can't even imagine what it looks like in person!

  8. I have never done a trakking trip in my life but I have friends who have done trekking in Nepal. I heard it is one of the best experience. Thanks for sharing all the tips here.

  9. my best friend is from Nepal and she's always told me how beautiful it is ❤️

  10. Nepal is a country that has always fascinated me. I knew of the Everest Base camp trek, of course, but it is interesting to learn of other trekking routes.

  11. Nepal is such an amazing place to visit. I lobe how beautiful each trek. Truly a bucket list material.

  12. Sounds ideal! I haven't been trekking for far too long and doing in Nepal is ideal. It is one of tiny travel dreams. I would so do it NOW!

  13. I have never been to this part of the world, but it seems there is so much to see and explore in Nepal. Thanks.

  14. Oh your pictures are just stunning!! There are so many beautiful places to visit, I need to get saving.

  15. Nepal has always amazed me. Of course for Mt. Everest, but also because of the Sherpas! What an awesome experience!

  16. What an incredible adventure! I know hiking Mt. Everest is on a lot of people's bucket list, but I'd be thrilled just to visit Nepal, or even base camp! Looks amazing!

  17. I never really thought about going into trekking before, it looks exciting
    though. May need to add it to my want to do list.

  18. Thats a great selection of treks and we'd love to visit Durbar Square one day, the whole area is steeped in history!

  19. Wow these are all such beautiful places! I'm completely enamored!

  20. Looks like an incredible journey and adventure.I personally could not do it.

  21. Nepal is such a Fascinating country, there is so much to visit! the paradise for trekking lovers!
