- FAQ

Do you stay overnight at the Everest Base Camp? What is the average size of the groups trekking to Everest Base Camp? What is the accommodation like during the trek? What is the best time to trek to Everest Base Camp?
There are no nights at Everest Base Camp on this trek. Instead you will stay at Gorak Shep from where you walk to Base Camp. To sleep at Everest Base Camp requires special permits which are very expensive. So it is better to stay at Gorak Shep and walk into Base Camp for a day trip. Our groups are between 6 to 16 fellow travellers. The Everest Base Camp & Kala Pattar trek is a popular trip so most of our groups go fully booked. Our groups typically are a mix of individuals, couples or friends travelling together. The ages differ and trekkers can be in their 20’s to 60’s. The groups comprise of people from all nationalities. One of the big advantages of travelling with World Expeditions is that we don’t use tea houses. This means that the food you’re being served is freshly prepared, beds are comfortable, and we don’t burn wood to heat our dining rooms, but choose the more sustainable alternative of dried yak or buffalo dung. On selected nights of your trek you’ll arrive to an established private campsite, spacious tents erected with beds made, composting toilets, hand basins and a hearty meal enjoyed with your group in the comfort of windowed dining room with eco-friendly heating. I found the private campsites very comfortable and slept really well in the tents (very important on a trek!) with the thick comfortable mattresses and warm sleeping bags. You can see more on our private campsites here. The nights in our private campsites will be complemented by nights in our hand-picked eco lodges. The trekking season for Everest Base Camp runs from mid September to May. October is traditionally the most popular time for this trek, when the views are good and the temperatures are not too extreme. But we also get many travellers enjoying the colder winter season (Dec/Jan) when numbers on the trail are lower, and views can be crystal clear. If you go trekking in December or January you need to be prepared with the right clothing for some potentially very low temperatures, but we provide good quality down jackets, down sleeping bags and fleece sleeping bag liners to keep you cosy! Winter trekking can be very rewarding though. We always get a lot of interest in our treks over Christmas and New Years , as it is an exciting way to spend the holiday season and minimises the days you need to use from your holiday allowance. As you head towards March and April, the temperatures get warmer. In April it can be a little more hazy for the views, as the closer you get to the Monsoon period, the more cloud you get. In April, usually the peaks are clear in the morning, but you might get cloud build up in the afternoon. In April or May you are much more likely to see activity at Base Camp, as the big expeditions get ready to summit
