Dreaming of visiting the third pole? The Mount Everest (8848 m) belongs to the list of most of the travelers around the world not because of being the top of the world only but due to its alluring charm like Kalapatthar; the mightiest viewpoint, Buddhism and prayers flag, the local life of daring Sherpas, magnificent surrounding mountains, the Sagarmatha National Park, pristine beauty, spiritual vibration, pleasure & pride, quaint Namche bazaar and the Everest Base Camp. The Everest Base Camp trek allows you to observe the more than 8,000 meter Himalayas viz. Mount Everest (8848 m), Mount Lhotse (8516 m), Mount Makalu (8481 m) and Mount Cho-Oyu (8201 m). The trek to EBC is a perfect way to relieve boredom gathered from the human crowd and leave the mind in tranquility. 
It’s a 14 days program to reach the top of the world from Kathmandu; the capital city of Nepal. One needs to be physically fit and have an experience of hiking/trekking for 06 to 07 hours with no difficulty. Upon arrival in Kathmandu, you’ll be explained briefly about the trek and introduced with your guide. Then drive from Kathmandu to Manthali Airport in Ramechhap with a guide for 04 to 05 hours. Then experience the thrilling flight to Lukla (2827 m) where you will be introduced with our porter. Tenzing-Hillary Airport is taken as one of the most dangerous flights in the world. Now trek to Phakding. The next day ascends through Dudh Koshi Valley to Namche Bazaar; the gateway to the Everest region. Namche is regarded as the capital of the Sherpa community. 
We’ll stay here for acclimatization and enjoy the local Yak Cheese during the meal.

What to Wear

  •   Women:  We recommend women wear long, loose, conservative clothing such as sleeved shirts or trousers. For longer stays, consider purchasing a traditional sari, a kurta (a long shirt), or salwar and kameez (baggy pants). Scarves and shawls are worn throughout the year and can be fashionable as well as functional. Dressing in Indian attire shows cultural appreciation and will help avoid drawing unwanted attention.
  •   Men: Most Indians wear loose cotton shirts, polos, or button-ups with pants or jeans. Shorts and sleeveless shirts are uncommon, even during the hotter months.
  •   Traveling north or to the Himalayas: Bring warmer clothing like sweaters, long-sleeved shirts, or light jackets. Temperatures can dip down to freezing at times.
  •   Shoes: Bring durable shoes or sandals that can get dirty. Sandals, flip-flops, or flats are especially handy because they are easy to slip off when entering temples or homes.
  •   Places of Worship: Women should cover their heads, legs, and shoulders when entering a temple. Men should refrain from wearing shorts or they may not be permitted inside.
  •   Safaris: Early morning safaris can be chilly. We recommend wearing several layers including a sweater or jacket that can be removed as the day warms up. A thin hat or gloves may also help.

Passport and Visa

  •   Passport: Your passport is your most important travel document and must be valid for at least six months before arriving in India. If your passport is falling apart, make sure to replace it before coming.
  •   Visa: A visa is required for any visit to India. Contact your embassy or the Indian consulate to learn how to obtain one. If you are visiting India and a neighboring country, you must apply for a double or multiple entry visas from the Indian Embassy.
  •   Photocopies: Make sure to print and bring copies of your passport and visa with you. Store them separately in a secure place. Email yourself a scanned copy for easy access and be sure to leave a photocopy with someone at home. If your hotel has a safe, leave your passport and carry a photocopy with you. Also, be sure to bring a second form of identification.
  •   Lost or Stolen Passport: If something happens to your passport, immediately report the loss to the local police and get a written statement. Contact the nearest consulate for a replacement.


  •   Malaria and Dengue: All year long in areas below 2000 meters of altitude, there is a chance of contracting mosquito-borne malaria and dengue. You can prevent potential mosquito bites by wearing long clothes and frequently applying mosquito repellent. Make sure to consult with your doctor before coming.
  •   Travel Insurance: If you fall ill, treatment or transportation home can be extremely expensive. Travel insurance is highly recommended.
  •   Vaccinations: No vaccinations are required. However, if you are staying longer than 30 days, we recommend you receive the following shots: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, polio, diphtheria, rabies, measles, mumps, rubella, Japanese encephalitis, typhoid, yellow fever, and meningococcal.
  •   High Altitude Sickness: When visiting high altitude areas, be sure to ascend slowly and take enough time to acclimatize. You should be physically fit before venturing on any strenuous climbs.


  •   Currency: The national currency is the Indian rupee. Check the latest exchange rates before you arrive so you have a better idea of how much you are spending.
  •   Credit Cards: Credit cards are widely accepted in India, but keep in mind they’ll be of no use in remote areas. It’s helpful to carry a mix of cash and traveler’s checks.
  •   Bills: Be sure to always have smaller denominations of rupees (1s, 5s, 10s, 100s, etc.) as stores and rickshaw drivers will not always have exact change.

Eating & Drinking

  •   Eating: Try to consume cooked foods during your stay. Avoid street food, raw vegetables, and unpeeled fruit. Food in India can be incredibly spicy. So, be cautious when ordering hot curries.
  •   Drinking-Water: Drink only sealed bottled or filtered water. Avoid putting ice in your drinks as the water may be from the faucet.
  •   Alcohol: The legal drinking age is 25. It is uncommon and sometimes prohibited to drink alcohol in India, especially in sacred places.


  •   Haggling: Bargaining is commonplace in this part of the world and should be taken with humor and an open mind. Remember, you have no obligation to purchase something you have been haggling on. If you are uncomfortable with the price, politely decline and walk away.
  •   Respect: Locals work long, hard hours for only a few coins. So,  please make sure you always pay a fair price. The work of an Indian craftsman is just as valuable as the work of any other person.
  •   Touts: Some locals and public drivers may try to lead you into shops to receive a commission for your purchases. Should you not wish to visit a particular shop, firmly and politely state your disinterest and walk away.
  •   Responsibility: Epiconic Travel will not be held liable for any shopping purchases or shipping costs.

  •   Guide/Escort: 400-500 INR per day
  •   Drivers: 250-300 INR per day
If traveling in a group, please confer with your tour leader before tipping.  


  •   Show Respect: Taking pictures of day-to-day life is possible in most places. However, we request that you respect the privacy of those who do not wish to be photographed. Please ask when possible to avoid any uncomfortable situations. Furthermore, please respect the rules of religious institutions and check before taking photos in temples, mosques, and other places of worship.
  •   Being Photographed: Strangers may request to have their picture taken with you even if you have never met before. While this may seem strange, remember that as a foreigner, you are just as exotic to them as they are to you. If you feel uncomfortable having your picture taken, politely decline and walk away.
  •   Meet the People: Take time to get to know a person before snapping their photos. Most likely, this will make them more willing to have their photo taken.
  •   Security: Note that photography is strictly prohibited in and around airports, military installations, and other sensitive areas. Please check for notices before taking photos.
  •   Photograph Scams: Some people may approach you and ask to have their picture taken. While this may seem like an excellent photo opportunity, don't oblige them unless you are willing to pay the fee they request afterward. Be especially wary of snake charmers and people in costume who earn a living this way. It's best to avoid these situations by politely declining and moving away.
  •   Photograph Journeys: Contact Epiconic Travel to learn more about our special photography journeys.


  •   Beggars: You will encounter a large number of beggars around temples and tourist areas. It may seem distressing, but in India, they form an integral part of the alms-giving process, which has roots in religious practices.
  •   Keep in Mind: Beggars who congregate around hotels and monuments do so because they can earn more than the average daily wage by targeting sympathetic foreign visitors.
  •   How to Give: Epiconic Travel recommends you do not give money to beggars, especially children. Giving money or small gifts encourages begging and future harassment of other travelers. If you wish to help alleviate their suffering, please let us know and we will put you in touch with a registered charity.


  •   Spiritual Offerings: Sometimes locals who look like holy men will try to put a Bindi (red dot) on your forehead or tie yarn around your wrist before requesting payment. If you don't wish to pay for this service, politely decline any attempt to do so and remove yourself from the situation.
  •   Handshakes: A simple handshake can quickly turn into a palm reading or an offer to paint your hand with henna. Instead, give the traditional "Namaste" prayer greeting when encountering strangers. This also conveys respect.
  •   No Such Thing as Free: You may be told some service or a small gift is free only to be asked for payment or a "donation" later. Be smart and use good judgment.

Respecting the Culture

  • Keep in mind that India may not have the same standards of living or traditions as your home country. Please be respectful of these differences and embrace everything that India has to offer.
  • Please show respect by refraining from public displays of affection, coarse language, and other inappropriate behavior.


  • In general, follow the same basic ecological rules you have in your country while traveling.
  •   Water: Pure water in India is a luxury, so please use it sparingly. In remote areas, stick to neutral soap to avoid any negative environmental impact.
  •   Batteries: Return home with any dead batteries as India lacks a dedicated battery recycling system.
  •   Camping: Campgrounds should remain clean after your departure to minimize human impact.
  •   Keep Your Volume Down: While visiting nature reserves, please make sure to keep quiet and respect the wildlife.
  •   Trash: Please properly dispose of any garbage by placing it in a wastebasket.
  •   Animals: For health and safety reasons, keep your distance and avoid contact with any animals you encounter.

Traveling by Train

  •   Delays: More often than not, your train will be delayed; sometimes by more than an hour. Relax and rest assured you will make it to your destination. Always assume your train will arrive on time and show up at least 30 minutes beforehand.
  •   Food: Resist the temptation to purchase meals on the train or at the railway station as it may upset your stomach. Make sure any food you buy is packaged and only drink bottled water. Also, it is best to take the skin off the fruit before eating it.
  •   Toilet Types: Indian trains offer squat and seated bathroom facilities. It is smart to bring your toilet paper and hand sanitizer in the off chance the bathrooms run out. Train toilets empty directly down onto the track so be courteous and only use the bathroom while the train is in motion.
  •   Insects: It’s not uncommon to see insects around the bathroom areas and trash receptacles. A train worker can spray insect repellent if you encounter any bugs in your cabin.
  •   Open Doors: Most Indian trains allow passengers to open the entry doors while the train is in motion. Be cautious when passing them on your way to the bathroom area. Epiconic Travel recommends you avoid venturing near the open doors.
  •   Epiconic Provisions: To make your train experience even more enjoyable, Epiconic Travel provides clients with their own linen sheets, pillow covers, snacks, and basic toiletries.

Women Travelers

  •   Clothes: See the “What to Wear” section on page one.
  •   Swimsuits: Normal swimwear is fine at beach resorts. Otherwise, wear long shorts and a t-shirt when swimming in public.
  •   Jewelry: Avoid wearing expensive-looking jewelry and/or giving off the impression of wealth.
  •   Taxis: Though Epiconic Travel will provide a driver for your journey, be cautious when venturing out on your own. Avoid taking cabs home alone at night and never agree on having another male in the car with you besides the driver.
  •   Common Misconceptions: It is common for Indians to direct their conversations toward males, even if questioned by a woman. Men do this to show the woman respect since speaking to her can be perceived as flirtatious.
  •   Staring: As a foreigner, you will naturally stand out. Although people will take extra notice of you, it is usually a harmless curiosity. Still, it is always best to travel with a male or in a group and make safe travel decisions.
  •   Be Home Before Dark: Avoid walking around town at night, especially if you are alone or in an isolated area.


  • India is home to over 400 living languages that vary from region to region. English is a second language for most people and some do not speak it at all. Remember to be patient and avoid using slang in conversation. This will make communicating easier and less frustrating.


  • There are numerous Wi-Fi spots in major cities and many hotels have Internet. Be aware that not all Internet areas will have a broadband connection.

Making Phone Calls

  •   Cell Phones: There is cell phone coverage throughout India. Be sure to check with your service provider before calling, texting, or web browsing to avoid expensive roaming charges.
  •   Prepaid Phone Cards: These are available throughout India though you can also purchase one before you arrive. Phone cards are generally more cost-effective than using your mobile phone.
  •   Country Code: +91

What to Bring
