COVID Vaccine Now Required for Everest Base Camp Trekkers

August 31, 2021

Last week, local authorities from the Khumbu Pasanglhamu Rural Municipality of Solukhumbu district—which is the region that surrounds Everest—announced that only travelers who have been fully vaccinated will be allowed in the Khumbu for the autumn trekking and climbing season. That means anyone planning on heading to Everest base camp this fall will have to be inoculated before they will be allowed to proceed, at least in theory. Adventure Journal
