Permits for Everest Base Camp Trek

The Government of Nepal imposes permit entrance fees to preserve the beauty surrounding Mt. Everest and other mountains in the Himalayan range.

All national parks in Nepal need a permit, and the Sagarmatha National Park is no different.  When you compare the cost of the permits to the overall cost of your trip to Nepal and the Everest Region, the amount is relatively small. It is an investment in the future of this beautiful area with its snow, forests, ice, pastures, and culture.

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay may have been the people to put the Khumbu on the map, but since then, countless mountaineers and trekkers have enjoyed the beauty of the likes of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Goyko Lakes, and much more.  Let’s ensure this area stays as it is for future trekkers and Nepali people.

For the Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek, you need entrance permits as explained below: –

  1. Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit (NPR 2000 Per Person)
  2. Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit (NPR 3000 Per Person)

Important Notes for EBC Trek

  • Flights to the Everest Region now depart from Ramchhap airport due to congestion at the Kathmandu airport.  Ramchhap is a several hours’ drive from Kathmandu, so we leave Kathmandu at 1 am to reach there for the early morning flights.  There are no day or evening flights due to the high winds in the mountains in the afternoons.
  • Flights can be delayed or canceled due to bad weather.  We recommend you build in a 2 or 3-night contingency plan.  That means does not book your international flight for Tuesday if your planned flight from Lukla is on Monday.  Best to book it on Thursday or Friday.
  • If you wish to take a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, there will be an additional charge of around $250 to $300.
  • There is no additional fee for the package rate for solo travelers.  However, if you are traveling alone and wish for a single room, please add on the single supplement during checkout.
  • Porters can only carry 20kg.  So please pack lightly.  We will provide you with a bag/duffle bag that is easy for porters to carry.
  • Airlines have a weight limit of 15kg per person.  Any excess can be paid at the airline counter at the airport.  Note that this is only possible if the flight is not overweight already.  Again, please pack lightly.
  • Please provide us with a copy of your passport at the booking stage, as we require this for domestic flight booking.
  • Meals on the trek are included in the price.  This does not include hot or cold drinks, alcohol, or extra snacks.  In Kathmandu, breakfast is included, but not lunch or dinner.
  • There are extra expenses for hot showers ($3 to $5) and charging your battery ($1 to $3).
  • You can buy a wife card in Lukla or Namche Bazaar for $25.  10 or 20 GB of data are provided for use over 30 days in the Everest Region.  We cannot guarantee the wife quality – it will depend on the weather and location.
  • Weather can change dramatically and quickly in the mountains, so please bear with us if there are delays.  Please follow the advice of your guide if he needs to change the itinerary in any way due to the weather.
  • Drones are not permitted unless you have a special permit to fly them in the Everest Region.  This is because there are many unscheduled helicopter flights in the sky.  It is tricky to obtain permission, so leave it at home unless you need a drone.
  • Remember your insurance!
  • Most of all – enjoy your amazing adventure!

48 Hours cancellation notice is mandatory.
