1 Everest Base Camp Budget Trek - 12 Days The Mt. Everest Base Camp is a dream destination of most of the adventure trekkers/travelers around the world. Most of these adventure lovers (especially students and backpackers) prefer to travel on a small budget. Keeping these people s needs in mind, Amigo Treks and Expedition P. Ltd., offers low- budget Everest Base Camp Trek package to help interested trekkers fulfill their dream, on a limited budget. We want to help trekkers explore the attractions of the Khumbu region (Mountain views, Sagarmatha National Park, Sherpa Culture, important Monasteries and Sherpa settlements), all within their budget. Our 12 days Everest Base Camp Budget Trek package price covers the facilities of airport transfer for Lukla flight, flight tickets to and from Lukla, an English speaking guide, porters, TIMS permit, National Park entrance fee and a shuttle service from airport to the hotel in Kathmandu (after the trek). The package does not include food and accommodation; however, the guide provided by the company will definitely help trekkers in finding the best budget accommodation and eating spots. Moreover, the package can be customized to the trekker s needs and requirements, ensuring flat rate, 100% departure and special group discount. This special budget trek to Everest Base Camp starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, where trekkers will be introduced to the Sherpas and the porters. We trek for two days, before the first acclimatization against Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) at Namche, then for two more days before the second acclimatization at Dingboche. Before reaching Dingboche, we also enjoy the hilltop settlement of Tengboche and the Buddhist Monastery, guarded by the awesome views of the peaks, including Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku. From Dingboche, we set off to conquer the base camp of the Mount Everest (5,364m). Gorak Shep is the last village before the base camp. After base camp, we also hike up to Kala Patthar (5,550m), to enjoy the magnificent views of the Mt. Everest, which is not seen from the base camp, and other surrounding peaks like Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori and Cho Oyu. After achieving the goal, we retrace the trail used earlier to get back to Lukla and catch a flight to Kathmandu. Spring and autumn are the two best seasons to plan this trek. The standard package offered by Amigo Treks & Expedition ensures proper acclimatization with an average of 4-6 hour walk in a day. No prior experience or technical knowledge is required to complete this trek. Therefore, any physically fit person with strong mental determination can opt for this trek. Moreover, if you are looking for a worry-free deal, we suggest you to go for our 15 days Everest Base Camp Trek or 12 days Short Everest Base Camp Trek, or even 14 days Everest Base Camp Trekking package which keeps you off-the-hassle of finding a good place to eat and rest.

3 Accommodation in Kathmandu All meals during the trek Accommodation on a trek Trekking equipments Personal expenses like all kinds of drinks including mineral water, and alcoholic and soft beverages Your travel insurance that covers Helicopter evacuation This piece of information is for everyone planning Everest Base Camp Budget Trek, in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Kindly get the travel insurance that covers all the added expenses that might result due to various health issues, injuries or accidents (together with air ambulance, helicopter rescue and other treatment cost). Also, make sure that your insurance policy covers all the extra activities that you are planning to accomplish, throughout your stay in Nepal. In addition to this, the policy should also cover up for death, misplaced luggage, theft and liability, cancellations, medical treatment (counting hospital charges, cost of medicine, doctor s fees) as well as the repatriation cost. The insurance policy covering 5000m+ altitude is a must. In short, the client himself/herself has to take the responsibility of all the unforeseen expenses that might result during the trip. Health, fitness and experience requirements: The altitude attempted during this trek demand excellent stamina, mental determination, and sound health condition. Therefore, every trekker is suggested to consult their doctor, before planning this trek. Trekkers are also requested to take advice, medication and permission from their doctor, prior to planning this trek. Also, it is highly recommended to take expert guidance from the local General Practitioner regarding the guide walks. Travel clinics can offer the best assistance in the absence of GP. The Everest Base Camp Budget Trek requires an average of 4-6 hour of walking every day. Technical knowledge is not required; however, regular exercise and jogging is recommended to build up the required stamina, in order to successfully complete the trek. The trek is suitable for anyone who is physically fit. Moreover, no prior experience is required to plan this trek in Nepal; however, your former experience in climbing, camping and hiking will definitely be counted as a plus point. Note: Please submit your medical fitness certificate that includes your present health condition, medical situation, the preceding illness and the medication you are taking prior to booking this package. You are also requested to be honest, so that, we can prepare ourselves to take quick action in case of emergencies. Accommodation:

4 Since this is a budget trek, customers are free to choose their accommodation, meal and eating spot, during the trek. Nevertheless, our guides will definitely help the trekkers to find the best budget accommodation and eating spot, depending upon the amount that trekkers are willing to spend. Our attempt while you are on a trek: Most part of this trek takes you to the remote Himalayan region of Nepal, where communication facilities are very less. Therefore, Amigo Treks & Expedition P. Ltd., takes all the responsibility and makes attempts to deliver your message to our family, friends, relatives or the concerned person, if required. Our guides are also provided with a cell phone and are contacted on a regular basis. In any kind of emergency, you can use this phone to send your message to us, which will further be delivered to the respected person. Also, our guides will make every possible attempt to follow the planned itinerary; however, it is kindly requested to be flexible, in case of changes in the itinerary caused by some of the possible unavoidable circumstances: extreme weather condition, unforeseen natural disaster or a bad health condition of a group member. Moreover, we can also help you reschedule your international flight (extra charges applicable), if you need any additional days to complete your trek. We will make every possible attempt to make your trek a grand success. Why to Trek with us? Amigo Treks and Expedition P.

Despite all these facilities, our best packages are offered at a very competitive rate. When should I plan this trek?
