Yes, you need your passport and photo to buy a sim for yourself in Nepal. We recommend you buy NCell service. International Trekker need to show valid Nepal Visa for buying a sim card in Kathmandu.It will cost any amount between 300 to 500 NPR. You can then top up with call value and data packs.
How much budget should I keep for fooding alone on the Everest Base Camp trek
Keep a budget of 2500 to 3000 NPR per person per day to include all 3 meals, hot water, some snacks, etc on each day It falls down to the same average. Lower camps are cheaper, higher camps are expensive.
How much cash should I carry for this trek
You should carry cash to have meals in Kathmandu and on the trek. To answer to unplanned expenses like Lukla flight schedule, bad weather, extra nights on trek, emergency rescue etc. For food you should keep about 25000 to 28000 INR. For other unplanned expenses, you should keep about 5000 to 10000 INR. Emergency rescues are very expensive and costs as high as 3500 USD sometimes. However, for this, you can keep your passport as a security and release it after arrangement of the payment due to the helicopter rescue agencies. If you buy insurance, you will be shielded from these unplanned expenses. Do keep some extra money for tipping the guides and porters. They usually expect that you will tip them after the trek completion.
