NOTE! There is a large robbery risk when hiking up to Everest Base Camp and Mount Everest. Local population watches tourists who are then robbed and stolen on money, ATM cards and passports.
We urge all Swedes to pay close attention to thieves moving in the area around Everest Base Camp as well as Mount Everest. The area is sparse and if you are robbed there is very little help to get there.
Swedes should be very careful about which local guide they use in their hike.
We urge Swedes not to travel to the area around Mount Everest and the associated Base Camp.
