FAQs

  • Q1. Where is Everest Base Camp?

    Everest Base Camp is located at 5357 meter / 17575 feet. We will get Everest Base Camp in 7 walking days from Kathmandu. First we take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla for 35 minutes, and start our walking. Everest Base Camp is our main destination/goal of the package.

  • Coming to 29,029 feet (8,848 meters) above ocean level, Mount Everest is the most elevated mountain on Earth. Situated in the Mahalangur area of the Himalayas, the mountain’s summit straddles the fringe isolating China and Nepal

  • It relies on upon your aptitudes and experience yet I would quite often prescribe assistance for the logistics. Long treks are a labyrinth of subtle elements. Likewise, an awesome aide will make your general experience more significant.

  • There is never issue trekking with solo women or join in the gathering. All aides and doormen are fair, trust commendable, solid and deliberately decided for your treks, you won’t confront any issue trekking with your aide, and you will meet numerous likeminded explorers amid the trail.

  • Everest Base camp Trekking belongs to the Sagarmatha National Park; we need to pass through Sagarmatha National Park in the entire trek in Everest region. You must pay the entry fee, our company will help you for this.
    You must also obtain the usual TIMS trekking permit. Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) card is to ensure safety and security for the Trekkers. As the Trekker entering the protected areas in Nepal, you will be asked to provide dates and itinerary of your trek and phone number. During the time of accidents and natural calamities, with the help of data collected through TIMS card, it will be possible to know the position of trekker in case a rescue operation is needed.

  • Due to the widespread use of solar panels and hydroelectricity, there is electricity throughout the Khumbu region. However, in some smaller lodges the power runs directly to the lights and there are no sockets for recharging electronics devices. Even places with electric sockets will charge certain amount.

    EBC Trek Highly Recommended

    We booked this trip of a lifetime through Dream Heaven Adventures and it was amazing. First of all our guide Huparaj Tamang, we can't express how grateful we were to him for his expertise, knowledge and caring nature. He took care of us as if we were family.

    His patience and friendly nature made all the difference and our trip one to remember for many years. If we were rating the guide alone this would be a 5 star review however Dream Heaven as an organisation we feel has a little more to learn to ensure full customer satisfaction. There was little interaction with Suman.

    Duffel bags were provided but were dirty and we had to ask for them to be cleaned before we could use them and our promised T-shirts and certificates for completion of our trek were rushed to us as we were leaving for home, these could have been presented to us at our leaving meal or T-shirts maybe presented at the beginning of the trek so as to be worn as we reached EBC as we saw many other companies had done. Would have been great marketing for them.

    There was no real initial prep talk which would have been nice instead we were just asked if we had any questions. All this said the overall experience was amazing thanks to Huparaj who we would recommend you ask for if you are thinking of planning through Dream Heaven Adventures.

    EBC TREK 2nd March to 16th March, 2019

    I was with a group of trekking friends (KiliNovice & skmk2019) who did the EBC Trek with Dream Heaven Adventure Pvt Ltd. in March 2019. I found the level of service provided by Dream Heaven Adventure from the moment we landed at Kathmandu Airport - to the day of our departure, was overall, excellent.

    We didn't encounter any delays for our internal flights which we had dreaded. The guide we were allocated Mr Huparaj Tarang was a gentleman. He was so polite and courteous and very helpful. This made this once in a lifetime adventure that much more enjoyable. Suman and his team were also helpful - pulling all stops to do what they could to make this experience memorable.

    I would encourage Suman and his team to further improve the services they currently offer to the trekkers so that the Company achieves its goals to be the best trekking company in Kathmandu, if not Nepal. Thank you to all those who made our trek to EBC so wonderful.

    Perfect Experience

    We did a 16 day EBC trek in the end of October and it was just amazing. We booked via email, and replies were very prompt and included all the necessary info. From the moment we landed in Kathmandu, Suman and his team provided and arranged everything accordingly and on time.

    Our guide Suresh (I apologise if it is not written correctly :)) was a perfect match for us. He was very attentive, spoke very good English and had loads of knowledge of the mountain range. He also arranged private rooms in all the lodges on the entire trek, and was a very pleasant company throughout the trek. I can happily recommend Dream Heaven for your travel and leisure needs while you are in Nepal. Very reliable and professional!
