What Vaccinations do I need for the Everest Base Camp trek
What vaccinations or injections do you need for an Everest base camp trek or anywhere in Nepal? In short, you don’t need any of the specialist vaccinations to actually enter the country from the UK but there are a couple of optional injections that you may choose to have.
This is of course completely up to you.
The general vaccinations such as tetanus, typhoid, polio, cholera basically the ones that you have every 10 years with boosters. They’re the ones that we do recommend that you keep up to date.
If you’re up to date with them, you shouldn’t have any issues in Nepal.
The optional vaccination is Rabies. This is prevalent in most of Asia, so not just Nepal and some people opt to have this but I’ve never had the rabies injection myself. Only a very small percentage ever get this but it is one of those peace of mind things. If you want additional advice or extra peace of mind, then do speak to your GP or local travel clinic where you can get a 3 course of Rabies injections from around £150/£200.
