Nepal Visa Requirements to Visit Everest Base Camp

by David | June 20th, 2010

Have you ever dreamed of climbing Mount Everest?  For most people, standing on top of the highest mountain in the world is an impossible dream. The altitude and terrain mean that to make the climb, you have to be extremely athletic. (And just because a 13-year-old recently summited, that doesn’t make it an easy climb. Jordan Romero is one tough kid.)

For most of us, Everest Base Camp is a much more doable goal. Every year, thousands of people visit the South Base Camp in Nepal, making it one of the most popular hiking trails in the country.  Although the trip to Base Camp is not nearly as strenuous as actually climbing the mountain, you will still get a fairly intense workout. You’ll also get a chance to meet local people and experience the local culture along the way. Kraig Becker, a writer for, recently made the trip.  Here’s how he described the experience of finally reaching Base Camp:

Finally reaching BC gives you a sense of relief, satisfaction, and exhilaration all at the same time. For many of us who made the trek, visiting Everest was a dream come true, and while we were “only” at 17,600 feet, it is probably as close to the summit as we’ll ever come. The actual “camp” can be a bit anti-climactic if you see the location as just a destination to add to your list, but when you take in the whole experience, you’ll understand that an Everest Base Camp trek is more than the sum of its parts.

To visit Everest Base Camp, you will need a Nepal visa.  You get a visa on arrival at major points of entry, but if you like being prepared, you can also apply for a Nepal visa ahead of time, before you leave the US. Either way, see Nepal Visa Requirements For Tourists for details. Remember, you will also need a trekking permit to hike.
