Alert: There will be a slight change in the itinerary, especially the days when you take the domestic flights. In April & May and October & November of 2019, the government shifted the operation base for flights to and from Lukla (This is the actual starting point of the trek) from Kathmandu to Manthali, a town 4 to 5 hours drive away from Kathmandu. As a result, anyone who signed up for any Everest trek or climb had to go to Manthali to catch their flight. They moved the base because of renovation and high air traffic for Kathmandu's airport which is also the only international airport in Nepal. This change in the airport will continue in 2020 as well. Though right now there have been direct flights, we expect from March the airport will be shifted.

Hot shower costs from US$ 4 to 15 per use and the price increases along with the elevation. Attached bathrooms and toilets are not available unless you book for a luxury lodge during the EBC trek.
