    Trip Info


    Trek to Everest, the highest mountain in the world, through the fascinating land of the Himalayas is an amazing adventure experience of a lifetime for a reason: for multiple days of trekking, we obviously need a solid diet and hygienic foods to keep us strong and energized.

    As we trek in the mountains our body obviously needs a good level of dieting foods like protein and carbohydrates to maintain our fitness level for the trekking. However, the meal on this trek is very handy but it might be a slightly different size and taste than it is in city areas.

    During the trek, we have a pretty wide selection of food items on the tea houses' menus which are originated and prepared by the local community, the names of the most common meals of the region as given below.

    Common Breakfast options - Tibetan Breads (a fried bread in oil, it’s also named Gurung bread in the Annapurna area), Chapati with Cheese (dry bread- a local wheat bread), Oatmeal, French toast with jam, honey, and peanut butter, Corn Flakes, Hashed brown, fried, Scrambles and boiled eggs, pancakes, porridge with milk, Muesli, Vegetable items and any kind of hot drinks are available except espresso, Americano.

    Common Lunch options – different variety of Thukpa (noodle soup), Dahl and Bhat (Nepalese local meal), Momos ( dumplings), Tibetan / chapatti bread, Macaroni, Spaghetti, Sherpa Stew, a variety of soups, steaks, potato items, Sandwiches, Pizza, rice with curry, spring rolls, burgers and Pizza, yak steak and desserts items.

    Common Dinner options- Momos (dumplings), different verity of Thukpa (noodle soup), Dahl and Bhat (Nepalese local meal), Tibetan / chapatti bread, Macaroni, Spaghetti, Sherpa Stew, a variety of soups, steaks, potato items, Sandwiches, Pizza, rice with curry, spring rolls, Raman soups, burgers and Pizza, yak steak, desserts items, hot and cold drinks are available on the menus on tea house, the menu’s selected meals are fresh and healthy with hygienic specialists by the mountain for the mountain trekkers.

    At the tea houses, the menu has plenty of non-veg items mentioned but officially any of the meats are not on our list of recommendations because the meat in the mountain such as in high areas is not sanitary and healthy. However, we would like to persuade you to avoid taking meat, Alcoholic drinks, and smoking.

    Deseret and Snack options- Rice Pudding, Apple pie, fruit snicker/ mars bar, popcorn, cake, pastries, etc.

    Hot Drink options – Varieties of hot drinks like black/milk coffees, black/mint/ginger/Green/ lemon honey teas, hot chocolates, hot mango juice, hot orange juice, hot pineapple juice, etc.)


    Drinking water is very important while trekking in the mountain at an altitude. It's available everywhere along the way. However, buying a regular bottle of mineral water can cost anywhere between 1 and 3 USD. Another option, you can also get to refill the water from taps without any charges, in this case, the water might not be as clean as the new bottle of water but it can be fine to drink by using purification pills or other purification methods. Remember, water is very important even at altitude; keep drinking and stay hydrated.


    Accommodations on the mountain are very simple in tea hoses. The rooms typically have only 2- 3 single beds with nice and warm blankets, pillows, comfortable matrices, attached bathrooms (not everywhere), and nice views. However, a single private room will be provided during the trek without any extra cost for solo female travelers.

    During the trek, we will ensure and accommodate you to the best available tea houses with great views of the mountain and sceneries.

    NOTE: Kathmandu has a large range of luxury stars hotel offers to select for your stay. However, we will also be pleased to be part of this help to make the reservations for the four and 5-star hotel booking as well on request.


    Choose the best month for your remarkable trekking experience of a lifetime! Nepal has five seasons like many other countries; spring, Summer, Monsoon, Autumn, and Winter. Among all these seasons there are mainly two distinct trekking seasons for Everest Base Camp or any region treks in Nepal which are autumn and spring.

    Spring (Pre-monsoon) – Spring includes Feb, March, April, and May; the weather in this month is largely stable and dry with a moderate climate. This time of the year is fairly perfect for trekking in the Everest region offers a crystal clear view of the mountains and sceneries every day, the Temperature can reach up to 15- 20 degrees Celsius in the daytime and the temperature the nighttime can drop down to - 8/12 degrees Celsius. The spring welcomes thousands of flora and vegetation that make the trek more beautiful and enjoyable in Nepal.

    Autumn (Post monsoon)- Autumn is another great season for trekking on Everest Base Camp; Autumn includes the months of September, October, November, and December. During the autumn, the temperatures should be rated as between 14-20 degrees in the daytime, and nighttime can decrease to -5/10 degrees Celsius, it’s great for trekking.

Please note that your passport holdings should be validated at least six months from the date of your arrival. Meanwhile, travelers of Indian and Chinese nationalities are not required to pay this fee since the country declared a free visa for these two countries.


    For safety reasons, travel insurance is mandatory for trekkers participating in any trek and tour programs in the mountains. Getting travel insurance, especially while traveling in mountain areas, is like security, which you can rely on to enjoy your trip without any worries.

      I just got back from this amazing life-changing adventure with Alpine Ramble Trekking! Don’t think twice and just go experience it. It is challenging but worth every step. With the help of my wonderful guide Arpan and porter Suk I accomplished a trip that will live in my heart, soul and memories til I’m old and gray…

      “My brother, sister, and I decided to embark on the adventure of a lifetime and travel to Nepal. We went through Alpine Ramble to reach Everest Base Camp, and we could not have been in better hands. Every detail of the trip was taken care of, and the team was thorough and thoughtful in planning out our adventure so that we would have the ultimate experience. Our food and accommodations (even snacks!) were thoughtfully planned, and we had the opportunity to go on an extra hike to see spectacular views of Everest at sunset. Wow!! We were treated to a special ethnic dinner upon our return to the city--the experience could not have been more unique and special. Incredible!!!”

      Overall a great experience. Dil was incredibly helpful and responsive from the very beginning helping us plan all of the details of our trip and coordinated private transportation for us when we arrived in Nepal. Laxman, our guide for our 8 day EBC trek, was awesome. He was extremely knowledgeable about the park and truly took care of us throughout our entire trek. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide and experience!

      “I did the Everest Base Camp Trek from the 15.02. to the 27.02. with the organization Alpine Ramble. When I arrived in Kathmandu the boss of the organization (Dil) and my guide (Sujal) picked me up at the airport in Kathmandu. From this point on you, don't have to care about anything. They bring you to the hotel and on the next day, you start your trek. In total, you have to walk for 11 days. 8 days up, 3 days down. During the trek, you sleep in very comfortable lodges. I always had a single room because of the lower frequentation on the trek in the winter months. In these lodges, you can choose from a wide range of dishes. My guide Sujal was a great guide. He was very well informed about the Himalayas which means he could tell me everything about each mountain on the trek. During the trek, he always took care of me. He had the right medicine for each problem you can have in the mountains. In the recovery times, in our accommodations, we played cards and had some good conversations. We had a lot of fun. After the trek I had dinner with Dil and Sujal in Kathmandu where they talk with you about your trek and if they could fulfill your expectations. Before I left Nepal I was for 2 days in Chitwan. Dil organized and paid the bus for me, which was not included in our contract. Both guys are very professional. Their first goal is to give you a great experience on your trek and in Nepal. To summarize - everything was great. I am looking forward to doing the next trek with this great team.”
