Cost of Everest Base Camp Trek by GROUP SIZE

According to Base Camp Hike’s plan, the cost of the 12-day Everest Base Camp Trek is USD 1050 per person ( based on a group of 2 ). The cost of trekking to Everest Base Camp depends on the mode of the trip, group size, and season. The mode of trekking refers to the Economy Package, Standard Trek, and Comfort Trek.

We can say that our price is the best price because it includes everything, such as a local guide, strong porter, food, accommodation, permits, transportation, and the KTM-LUKLA-KTM flight fare. We also offer discounts for groups. This is because the cost per person is lower when the cost of most items is shared among the participants. Therefore, the price for a solo trek to EBC is more expensive than the group trek.

Daily Cost 

The daily cost of trekking to the Base Camp of Everest varies depending on the package price offered by the agency, the group size, and the duration of the trek. For example, if you choose a 11-day trek with us, the daily expenditure will be approximately 89 USD per person per day, assuming double occupancy.

The following are the price schemes for the STANDARD CATEGORY. However, for those who want to go for the ECONOMY PACKAGE ( cheapest option ), we also offer partial package services that only include a GUIDE, PERMIT, and FLIGHT FARE. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a COMFORT PACKAGE that includes most of the things (all inclusive), we also offer the best price for Comfort Lodge Hiking.

EBC TREKKING REVIEWS

12 Days Everest Base Camp trek with my Son

This was one of the best trek I have ever undertaken. The trekking company, BASE CAMP HIKE was superb. The guide, Kamal was knowledgeable and patient with my son and me. With his help, we were able to achieve our goal of reaching the Everest Base Camp.

View from Kala Pattar was magical. A perfectly splendid trek in a rugged, unbelievable part of the world. We lucked out with beautiful weather throughout the trek. I recommended this agency to anyone looking for a physically challenging and completely rewarding experience under the care of a professional, responsible, and fun guide.

Christian Laub

12 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking

We did the 12 day Everest Base Camp trek with Kamal and Prem as guide and porters. It was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE. Base Camp Hike is a fabulous company. I can’t say enough good things about Base Camp Hike. From the time getting to Nepal to leaving to getting Covid tests, everything was taken care of.

Our guide, Kamal, really did his best to ensure we had the best experience and showed us the beauty of life in the mountains. We were very impressed with the services provided by the company which exceeded our expectations.

Trekking to ECB was both the most challenging and most rewarding thing we’ve ever done. The view during the entire Everest trek was awesome. Our Guide allowed us to hike at our own pace and were never in a rush. We always felt safe and immensely enjoyed our ECB trekking.

From the beginning to the end of the trip, the whole team’s commitment to customer service was remarkable.

Hence, highly recommend them to other adventure lovers.

Pro tip: bring a pack of cards to play during the evening with the Guide and porters!
