Everest Base Camp Trek


*on going*

Was hoping to do this in December 2020, but well, things happened. 2021 is still a definite no, and now I figured play it safe and target 2023. 

I do not plan to use a guide and do it independently as we did back when doing Annapurna Circuit Trek.  

Budget: JPY150,000 (~USD1,3) from Tokyo
  • Transportation costs. 
    • JPY70,000. Flight, Tokyo to Kathmandu Airport. 
    • USD150. Flight. Kathmandu Airport to Lukla Airport. 
  • Food costs.
  • Permit costs. 
Hike Date / Difficulty (Elevation: 5,364m / 17,599ft)
  • Target: 2023
  • Difficulty: 5 out of 5, I bet. 
When to Go
  • Latter October until May, I think.
  • The peak season is October to November, mainly because it’s not as cold and the rainy season is supposedly over.
  • December to February are much colder given it’s winter, but they also get blessed with clear skies.
  • March to April is spring, so it’s not as bad as winter, but still pretty cold.
