Preparation for Everest Luxury Trek– Return by Helicopter

Before embarking on the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return, it's crucial to prioritize your physical and mental well-being. If you lack prior trekking experience, consider incorporating activities like cycling, jogging, and regular morning walks into your routine for several weeks or months before making a reservation. Previous hiking and climbing experience can be advantageous for this trek, especially considering the highest point, Kalapatthar, stands at an elevation of 5545 meters. The journey encompasses various terrains, including farmland, terraces, and sherpa communities, involving several ascents and descents, demanding a level of physical fitness to endure daily walks of 5 to 6 hours. Mental fortitude is equally essential as doubt and lack of confidence can lead to discomfort and anxiety. It's highly recommended to consult with your doctor before departure, particularly if you have respiratory issues, and provide us with a copy of the medical report upon booking.

                      Things to do at the Airport in Kathmandu

                      Get a Nepali Visa: Visa on Arrival for most countries.

                      Comprehensive Packing List for Trekking in Nepal

                      Both branded items and local take on branded items are available in Kathmandu. It is totally possible to get everything and anything you will need for a trek here. A word of cautions about local products though: Being labeled North Face or Mountain Hardwear, as most local products are, doesn’t bless them with durability. However, there are good fakes and bad fakes and most are okay for the price. If you spend some time checking and rechecking the stuff especially the zippers and stitching, it will provide service for at least one trek. Or you could just stick to one of the branded outlets in Thamel.

                      However, bringing some stuff from home will save you time in Kathmandu and will also give you peace of mind. Also if you don’t know, the dress code for the mountains is layers. And avoid cotton inners at all costs. 

                      Gear from your Home 

                      • Trekking Boots- Lightweight, waterproof, ankle support, some toe room and most importantly broken in.

                      • Daypack/Rucksack with pack cover- If you plan on hiring porters, a 30-liter bag should be enough. Otherwise look for a 70 liter one.

                      • Sunglasses with straps- Straps are important as sunglasses happen to be the one thing that people misplace most often while taking pictures or resting.

                      • Spare glasses/lenses- If you wear glasses or contact, having a spare is very important.

                      • Inner Thermals- Both top and bottom will make your trek that much more enjoyable.

                      • Flashlight- Look for LED head torches.

                      • Camera with extra battery- One extra battery should be good as charging can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. Also, you cannot charge, if you don’t have a charger. Do not forget that.

                      • Books- A trek is a perfect time to catch up on reading. However, it would be tough to finish more than 2 books in a single two-three week trek.

                      • Gaiters- Keeps your feet dry and warm if the weather takes a turn for the worse.

                      Gear you can easily get in Nepal

                      • Sunscreen- SPF 30-50 will be good enough. There is little point in going over that. However, make sure it is rated UVA in addition to UVB.

                      • Sun Hat/Baseball Hat- Great for protection from the sun when it is still warm enough.

                      • Neck gaiter- A buff can be used in place of this. But this one comes in handy

                        Thanks to All Nepal Hiking for such a unique experience! Big thanks to the Management Jasmine and our guide Chetan.

                        We did Everest Base Camp with this company, they are very responsive, friendly and supportive.
                        I'd highly recommend choosing this company for any Nepal adventure you're thinking of.

                        Amazing experience!

                        Easy-going operation manager Jasmine who facilitated and went through well with our team! She made sure that we didn't left out anything as we were very new to EBC trekking. Any problems or worries were addressed prior to the trip and everything went smoothly, so thank you for making this experience an easy and memorable one! ^^

                        One of the best tour guide Rajendra to take care our team! He is detailed in explaining the culture & history along the EBC route. Very friendly and took great care of us throughout the trip and made sure that we were all healthy to make it till the end of the everest base camp. 10/10 wholesome experience to have him as our tour guide!

                        Highly recommend All Nepal Hiking team and thanks for making this experience extra amazing for this special trip with my friends :)
