Get in
Guides and porters can be hired for a fee through trekking agencies in Kathmandu or you can inquire at lodges in Lukla or Namche. At Lukla airport, there are always hopeful porters milling around the exit, but it is better to use a lodge owner as an intermediary. They can help you negotiate a good deal and translate your specific needs. '''Eco Paradise''', Lukla or '''Namche Hotel''', Namche are convenient and good places to do this.
== Get in from Nepal==
Fly to Lukla Airport from Kathmandu. There are several Airlines operating dozens of flights everyday. Among them Tara Air and Agni Air are generally considered the most reliable company plying the route. Sita Air also operates two flights every morning from Kathmandu Domestic Airport to Lukla at 7AM and 8:20AM. The flight takes around 25 minutes. During the summer rainy season, there may be substantial delays of flights, even a wait of one week is not unheard of. For the return journey, the flights leave Lukla at 7:40AM and 9AM. Helicopter Charter service is also available on demand and mostly used for rescue operation.
Just after the village of Monju, there is check point for entering the [[Sagarmatha National Park]]. You will need to show your passport and pay a 3,000 Rs entry fee.
 
== Get in from Tibet ==
 
Tourists can reach Tibet Everest Base Camp by flying to Lhasa, then rent a private car from Lhasa to Tingri(502km) along Sino-Nepal Friendship Highway, then turn south to Himalaya Natural Reserve about 100km to Everest Base Camp.
 
Travelling from Lhasa to Tingri, the land travel itself is an amazing journey, with going through three famous tourist cities Gyantse, Shigatse, Sakya and some stunning scenic spots like Yamdrotso Lake, Karola Glacier.
 
There are many flights from Mainland China to Lhasa, Tibet. Chengdu is the biggest air hub to Tibet, about 10 flights a day from the early morning to the evening.
