Why trip price is different?
Note: The itinerary can be customized according to your duration of holiday. Similarly hotel can be upgraded or downgraded depend on your budget.
You will get best price after your inquiry We know about value of money and world economy, so fell free to share your tentative budget for this trip so we can mention and compromise with price, this is standard price for trip if you have low budget we can run even cheap and if you wise to pay more and need extra deluxe service we will do that.
We invest in insurance coverage for commercial liability and medical and disability insurance for our guides and Sherpas while participating on our programs. We cannot insure you for your personal needs, but we do expect you to be as fiscally responsible as we are. We strongly recommend that you insure yourself against potentially expensive difficulties that may arise. First, trip cancellation insurance may provide financial relief should you be forced to withdraw from the climb before it even happens. Next, make sure you have adequate traveler's medical and evacuation insurance for coverage should you have a problem during the trip. Medical care and evacuation from Everest can be expensive.
You may spend some additional money on the trek buying drinks and snacks (food is provided for you). If you go down to Pheriche for rest and relaxation, you will need some additional money for this (estimate $35 per day).
No problem, we will organize you a porter and you can hike back to Lukla. The porter will carry your duffel bags. We will provide you a stipend to cover your lodges and meals on the hike out. Our staff at Lukla will meet you, arrange tickets, and assist you to make the flight to Kathmandu.
We will hire porters to carry your duffels back to Lukla, where they will be flown to Kathmandu.
The Sherpas will carry a reasonable amount of your personal gear for you up to the camps. For example — your sleeping bag, down suit, extra high altitude gear, some food and snacks, etc. You should not have to carry a big load at any time on the trip — we want you to be able to move at a reasonable speed. You will need to carry with you the things you require during the day-clothes, snacks, water, camera, etc.
We have a limited number of "extra" shared bags available for upper camps, but most climbers will appreciate having a dedicated bag at Base Camp and then another bag that is used above the Icefall. We don't want to carry bags up and down the Icefall.
Additional oxygen is available delivered to the South Col at $1500 per cylinder (1800 liters). Most climbers do not require extra oxygen, we provide a generous supply (climb at 3 liters/minute above C3, sleep at 1 liter/min at Col).
We can call for rescue with the B3 helicopter from Fishtail Helicopter. The cost is $10,000. This is the only helicopter that is able to safely land at Base Camp.
We suggest that you leave these items with our staff in Kathmandu, so it is easy for them to change your tickets or extend your visa for you while you are climbing.
