Hiking to Everest Base Camp is a challenging, 10 day Adventure at altitudes from 10,000-18,000 feet. Approximately 40,000 people/year make the trek from Lukla airport to Base Camp. We recommend that you be able to complete a 10 mile hike to participate in this Adventure. You’ll receive a dedicated iFIT training plan to prepare you for the challenge!
You will be able to cancel your reservation within 14 days of booking without penalty. All payments to secure your booking are non-refundable after 14 days. For this reason, we strongly recommend purchasing Travel Insurance. For more information about travel insurance, see the next FAQ.
To protect your investment and the health and safety of all travelers, we strongly recommend purchasing Travel Insurance. Specifically, we recommend the purchase of a ‘Cancel For Any Reason’ policy, or CFAR policy, to provide maximum flexibility and peace-of-mind. A CFAR policy can cover you for: Trip Cancellation & Interruptions, Emergency Medical Treatment and Rescue, Baggage & Personal effects, and more.
Standard trip insurance policies include trip cancellation/interruption coverage for specific reasons such as: illnesses diagnosed by a medical professional, business reasons and named storms, but do not allow flexibility to cancel a trip and secure reimbursement for “any reason”, including border closures, fear of travel, and personal conflicts. For that reason, we invite you to research CFAR policies which come at a premium (typically 50% more than standard policies) and typically cover up to 75% of the trip costs but offer maximum flexibility and protection.
Standard policies must be purchased within 14 days of initial deposit/payment for the most complete coverage, including that of pre-existing medical conditions.
