Trekking Options to trek Everest Base Camp

Everest Base Camp can be be trekked as desired or as one’s bank account permits. The different ways in which you can trek to EBC are-

1.  Backpacking

If you are running on a low budget or you happen to be one of those people who enjoy the thrill of backpacking, then Everest Base Camp trek has all the facilities for backpackers.

2. Intermediate spending

You can take the general route mentioned above and spend a reasonable amount of money on tea houses and restaurants. On a average, your daily expense need not exceed 10$-15$ which includes food and accommodation.

3. Luxury Trek

Lastly you can luxuriously trek to EBC. The luxury trek to Everest Base Camp consist of two option. You can take a helicopter flight from Gorak Shep back to Kathmandu. Or you can take the general route and spend lavishly on fancy restaurants and hotels. A brief information about each is given below-

i) Helicopter flight from Gorak Shep

The route taken by you will be taking in this trek is slightly different from the general itinerary mentioned above. Instead of trekking back from Gorak Shep you will take a helicopter and fly straight back to Kathmandu.

The advantage of the trek is that you will have already walked through the villages that fall along the retreating route. Therefore, you will miss out nothing but instead save yourself a few extra days to travel to other places. Above all,  you will get a chance to experience what it feel slike to fly across the sky with white peaks peaking through the fluffy levitating clouds.

ii) Stay at Luxury Hotels

The other Everest Base Camp Luxury trek includes spending the night in luxury hotel and resorts instead of tea houses. The route that you will be taking will be similar to that of the general itinerary mentioned above. Only difference lies in the places you will be eating and halting for the night.

This can be a good way to travel to the Himalayas. Unlike the ordinary trek, you will not have to use squatting restrooms. Neither will you have to share a restroom with other guests. The hygiene of the food served in luxury restaurants is promising. You will also have a much comfortable room to sleep off the weariness to get refueled for the journey ahead.


Whether you take the luxurious road or the economical one, the destination is the same and so is the route. The kind of money you spend on the trek cannot determine the experience you will actually gain from the journey. It is entirely an emotionally subjective factor whose worth cannot be measured by monetary value. There is way too much to see and explore in the Everest region than to waste your time deciding the place to stay in or eat at.


Yacht Charter

Yacht CharterAfter gathering all the necessary information, the next biggest task at hand for us was to charter a luxurious yacht for a week. There are many resources through which you can book extraordinary yacht charter, but our idea was to get most freedom with essential privacy for all of us. In this part of the article I like to describe you the process through which you can charter a yacht and what things you have to keep in mind when you yacht charter. The basic phenomena that we have to understand is that what actually we require when renting a yacht. There are two types of yachts that you can rent. Bare boats and crewed yacht. The basic different between a bare boat yacht and a crewed yacht is very simple. you can analyze from literal meaning of the names. Crewed yacht is more like around 40 foot to 300 foot boat with a captain and few crew members are like a chef and cleaner. This kind of charter is helpful if you going with a family trip and especially kids are around with you.

On the other hand we have a bare boot charter, it a service of different kind. It allow basically a perfect suite if you are traveling with friends or bunch of adults. It give full privacy and with most freedom. And fortunately we were bunch of adult friends so we decided to charter a bare boat to have real vocation on our head.This is a very important factor that we have to keep in mind on which type of yacht to rent, because it can make or break your vocation. Keeping in mind it was the first trip for all of us. As living being we tend to form imagines and create perceptions about things from the first experience that we have.

If i give you a simple example , like if you first time go to a restaurant and you are have heard about its special offering regarding sea food , but the fact is that you actually never was a big fan of sea food or your taste buds are not very attuned to sea food, so you will natural tend to create a mindset that this restaurant is not good for you even though it make best Thia food which you like a lot, but you haven’t tried it ever there. My point here is that you actually have to know what is needed for you is sometimes very different from what you actually select. Same phenomena are used in selecting best yacht for us. If you choose a crewed yacht with no privacy and freedom we don’t find the trip as pleasurable as it could be. So it always about the your personal needs and then making a choice that suites you the best.

The next biggest decision that we had to make was to select a reliable charter service. There are many extra ordinary charter service available out there, but the best way to select is a simple process. You need to do two things before you decide to rent a yacht. First ask people around you who in past made yacht trip, ask them about their experiences, how they have found different yacht charter services, and if you don’t find anyone who have been to yacht trip go on the website of the different charter services and read what they are offering? what people have written about them?. it is also a good source of collecting information that you are looking for. The next thing that you have to keep in mind is the cost of the charter. Many people research a lot on this reason, to find the most cost-effective option and end having a trip to forget. One thing we must keep in mind when deciding on a cost factor, Is the returns worthy spending your money. Does it actually giving out the benefits that it promises. Because many companies offer many services so keep in mind what actually you want and then decide which is most cost effective.
