With this Everest travel guide we are providing free information which will be useful to both independent trekkers and those going with a registered trekking agency. To those doing Everest base camp trek independently we strongly suggest that, if you don’t want to take a guide, you at least take a porter. A guide or porter will be someone who can be critical in times of trouble. Even a simple slip or error of judgment in the high passes can be life threatening or fatal.

Please ensure someone has details of your travel plans and knows when to expect you to get in touch with them during or after your trek. Please also ensure your insurance is up to date and covers trekking at high altitude. As we said above, we highly recommend trekkers take a guide or porter on any trek in the Himalayas. That said, we have put together this free information guide to the Everest Region to assist those who will go alone regardless as to what we recommend.

In this guide you will find information of where to go, how to get there, what to expect (weather, trails, food), where to stay, and what to pack. We have also included details of further adventures such as peak climbing (which you definitely cannot do alone), and less frequented treks. We hope you enjoy using this guide and find it useful.
