Why the cost is very Expensive for the only 5-day Everest Short Trek? Is this fair?
Well, due to the Kathmandu/Ramechhap airfare being very high, the Everest Short Trek seems very expensive. The cost for even 2 days trek or a 26-day trek, the Lukla flight tickets cost is the same. It means you need to take a flight to get to Lukla in the shortest time. However, there are everyday jeep services available to drive from Kathmandu to Lukla
, this will help to minimize the trek cost. But you need to add two extra days to get to Kathmandu and be ready for an adventurous drive through the off-road.
Sometimes, you might meet some individual trekkers and conservation about cost and you might feel that this is a lot of money you have paid. It is true; the cost of a Lukla flight is almost USD 200 per person for a single way including Ramechhap transport. Then you need to fly back to Kathmandu and this is another USD 200. Then, where are Guide expenses, your trekking permits, meals, accommodation, tea, and coffee? Can you please calculate it yourself? And as we are a trekking agency we need also services charge and need to pay government tax and VAT?
