What is the occupancy per room in Kathmandu and along the trekking trail?

Accommodation options in Kathmandu include both shared and single supplement rooms. However, during peak season, teahouse lodges along the trekking trail have limited capacity to accommodate all trekkers. So, these teahouses provide rooms on a shared basis with communal bathrooms to accommodate the high number of trekkers.

If someone gets sick or is struggling (altitude issues), during Everest Base Camp Trek how is that handled?

Our trekking crew regularly monitors the Lake Louise and Oxygen level of the client. In addition, a comprehensive first aid kit and Portable Altitude Chamber are carried in every trek. All our guides, porters, and staff are facilitated with cellphones during the trips covering most parts of the region. In the case of a very remote area, they are provided with a satellite phone for communication during an emergency. In addition, the itinerary is designed to allow gradual acclimatization.  In case of altitude sickness, we descend the client with one of our assistant guides.  In the event of urgent evacuation, rescue is done by helicopter and sent back to the hospital in Kathmandu. Note: Helicopter evacuation costs must be borne by the client on their own.
