Can you trek Everest base camp without a guide?

Can you trek to Everest Base Camp on your own?

Yes, actually you can do it 3 different ways.  With a travel agency, tour guide or solo.

1.- You can buy a package from a travel-tour agency is always an easy and a great option especially if you are not confident you can be alone and unassisted on the treks, also all logistics trekking permits, transports will be taken care of, but of course it’s the most expensive option. We suggest booking your package with trekking for the safety reasons.

2.- In Kathmandu you can found porters and guides easily in pretty much any agency, they can assist you to organize and gather the staff you need depending on your needs. You can trek by hiring a guide only from Kathmandu. But there is a chance of fraud guides. If the guide does not belong to any agency then you may face problems to contact them if they left you or got a discussion during the trek.

3.- Doing it independently will be the cheaper option, although it needs more planning, and the purchasing of external transportation of Plane, Bus, or jeep from Kathmandu to Lukla.

Also, trekking permits need to be handled, if you’re confident enough to be alone on the treks this is a great way to save up some money, and the rest is quite easy to follow everyone stays in the same town although you can find many tea houses for accommodation and no booking is needed. But if you are traveling in the best season(autumn/spring) the chance of teahouse overbooked is very high. if you feel sick or any other problems in the Himalaya you may lose your life because of being alone. We don’t suggest you for solo traveling. Safety always comes in first for saving some money you may lose your life.

But if you are new on the Himalaya walking we suggest you to take acclimatization during trek.

Cost depends on where you are going to stay in Kathmandu and which class of hotel/tea house your trekking company is going to provide during trek. The cost also depends on what you are going to eat during your trek. Some trekking agencies excludes the cost for your meals so you can choose by yourself  what you want to eat.

Kathmandu Lukla Flight Rerouted

Kathmandu Lukla flight are rerouted to Manthali (headquarter of Ramechhap district)  Lukla from April 1st 2019, to 30th July 2019 for repairing the runway of Tribhuwan International airport.

Tribhuwan International airport is only one airport in Kathmandu with only one runway. The runway of Tribhuwan international is going repair from 1 April 2019 to 30th July 2019 from 10 PM in night to 8 am in morning. So all the flights to Everest region ie. Lukla is scheduled to fly from Manthali. Airport authority already made announcement saying the airport will  be closed from 10pm to 8am every day on this period.

Lukla airport is located in the Everest region and the climates changes frequently at the day time. All travelers traveling to Everest base camp trek and Everest region use Lukla airport. So all flight to Lukla are preferred at morning so all airlines performing Kathmandu Lukla flight schedule their flight from Manthali till 30th july 2019.

How to get Manthali Lukla Flight?

No, worry if you are travelling to Everest region on this period. Your travel agency will arrange all the process for Manthali Lukla flight. You should take 4.5 hours to 5 hours drive from Kathmandu to reach Manthali which is lacated on the bank of Tamakoshi river. Then you will take flight to lukla on same day. Or you can drive on previous day to Manthali and overnight there and take early flight.

What if your Flight delayed or cancelled at Manthali?

Lukla Airport
Lukla Airport

Although Manthali is headquarter city, it is small city with less travelers. So there are few hotels and lodges. With the large numbers of travelers who are traveling Everest region mainly in spring 2019 come here to take flight. Due to weather problems, if all flights for certain day are canceled, it has high probability that you are not going to get any hotels if you are independent traveler or you have directly booked your flight ticket from airlines online. But if you booked your package with travel agency they will arrange your accommodation. They will transfer you to the nearest Hotels where possible or can arrange camping overnight stay.

Is it better to drive previous day to take flight?

As already mentioned above, you can take drive before one day of a flight. But we also mentioned above there are not standard hotels around there, as well its hard to get the room on available hotels there. So what to do then? You can stay overnight at Dhulikhel next day you will drive 3 hours from there. Or you can overnight at Khurkot next day one hour drive from there.
