Lumbini village was taxed reduced and entitled to the eight parts (only)".

                        Essential Info

                        If you have an Indian passport, the cost of trekking to Everest Base Camp is INR 100,000. When breaking down the cost, Indian citizens pay slightly less than citizens of other nations because India is a member of the SAARC (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri-Lanka), which lowers the cost of a permit. Additionally, Indian citizens pay less for airline tickets than citizens of other nations, which further lowers the cost of the trip. 

                        People travelling from SAARC countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri-Lanka). have low-cost permits, the cost of trekking to Everest Base Camp can be 20 to 50 dollars less for holders of these kinds of Trekkers and travelers coming to Nepal.

                        Himalayan climate can be unpredictable sometimes even in good best seasons, where April and May to first week of June will be the best time during spring times, when days are longer with enough sunlight hours.

                        Morning and night time as well in shade can be cold and much freezing temperatures around high hills.
