BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
The best time to trek to the Everest Base Camp Trek is in spring (February to May) and autumn
(September to November). The temperature is moderate in these seasons and guarantees amazing
views through the trip. Although this trek can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might
not be suitable for everyone.
GUIDE & STAFF ARRANGEMENT
The most significant thing that makes this trek enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced and helpful Guide and crew member who have the ability of guiding our trek on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional Guide. All of Discovery Mountain Trekking Guide’s are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Discovery Mountain only employs local Staff, who have knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region.
We are firmly committed to porter rights. We make sure that all our porters are well treated, well paid
and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand.
Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as other team members and we
have previously used helicopters – at our expense – to rescue porters from dangerous situations. We
support the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), making our resources available to them to help improve the working conditions of the porters. International Porters Progress Group.
The Everest Region is stunningly beautiful, but equally fragile. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do. Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an
obligation to protect and preserve it. Discovery Mountain employs a ‘zero impact’ policy on the natural
environment and the traditional communities that live there. Discovery Mountain, therefore, enforces a
number of do’s and don’ts. Please talk to your trek leader to avoid environmental impacts.
It is a condition upon joining any of Discovery Mountain’s trips that all clients be insured for
comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air
ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.
This trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness).
Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The
higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there
is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment
with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us
acclimatize to the high altitude.
