14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

For those with an adventurous spirit and a need for a personal challenge to one of the world’s most spectacular places.

Our 14 day Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC Trek) is the most popular trek in the Everest Region and offers the most spectacular views from day one. Mount Everest is known as Sagarmatha in the Nepalese language, meaning "Mother Goddess of the World".

Everest Base Camp trekking is a stunningly beautiful location surrounded by massive mountains. The best time to visit is from March to May and from September to December.

The adventure begins with a 30-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla - which is the starting point of your trek. Lukla offers many teahouses and a variety of western food. The trail takes you through the lush green Dudhkosi Valley with its abundance of flora and fauna, Sherpa villages, Buddhist monasteries and Gompas (Tibetan fortifications). You trek first takes you to the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar where you spend two days acclimatizing – essential for your preparation in climbing at these extreme altitudes. After leaving Namche Bazaar you pass through several small villages, such as Tengboche, Pangboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche where yaks are a common sight as they graze the grassy mounds. Gorakshep is the last village we pass before heading to EBC, that will take about two hours. Gorakshep offers magnificent views of the Khumbu Ice Fall at the head of the Khumbu Glacier at 5486m (17,999ft). From Gorakshep, we trek to Kala Pathar (5643m) - meaning black rock, from where you will have some of the most awesome views of the Himalayan mountains.

Key Features of 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

  • Visit the Sherpa Culture Museum and Saturday market in Namche Bazaar
  • Visit the Sagamartha National Park Museum & take in the amazing views from the Everest View Hotel – 2-hour trek during an acclimatization day
  • Experience Sherpa culture and look of Yeti head in Khumjung Monastery.
  • Visit the Tengboche Monastery and watch religious ceremony.

Alert: There will be a slight change in the itinerary, especially the days when you take the domestic flights. In April & May and October & November of 2019, the government shifted the operation base for flights to and from Lukla (This is the actual starting point of the trek) from Kathmandu to Manthali, a town 4 to 5 hours drive away from Kathmandu. As a result, anyone who signed up for any Everest trek or climb had to go to Manthali to catch their flight. They moved the base because of renovation and high air traffic for Kathmandu's airport which is also the only international airport in Nepal. This change in the airport will continue in 2020 as well. Though right now there have been direct flights, we expect from March the airport will be shifted.

ITINERARY

Expand All
On arrival at Kathmandu airport you will be met by a representative from Sherpa Expedition & Trekking who will take you to your 3 star hotel. You can rest at you hotel or stroll around Thamel and do some last minute shopping and take in the sights.
Today we take a short flight from Kathmandu and then trek to Phakding (2610m), a small village in the Khumbu region of Nepal in the Dudh Kosi river valley.
Today we trek through the valley with the Dudh Kosi River at our side. On several occasions you cross the Dudh Kosi River on suspension bridges before climbing higher before reaching the small village of Jorsale in the Khumbu region – just south of Namche Bazaar.. After a two hour trek you will finally reach Namche with some fascinating views along the way, including some spectacular views of captivating Mt. Everest (Sagamartha in Nepali). You enter the Sagarmatha National Park at Jorsale where authorities will check your license. Continuing on for another 5 or 6 hours of fairly hard going we arrive at Namche Bazaar.
Acclimatization is important for your safety before heading to higher elevations. It is recommended that you stay active during the day, so we will go for a day’s trek through the towns of Khunde and Khumjung, taking in the stunning views of Everest, before returning to Namche. At Namche, you may decide to view what is supposed to be a Yeti skull! Namche also boasts of having a bakery! Besides Everest, you can, weather permitting, also see Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and numerous other spectacular peaks. After breakfast, we will trek to the Syangboche airstrip (3790m), from where we ascend towards Khunde, along the way passing various Chorten (Buddhist stone structures). Leaving Khunde we take the trail heading east to Khumjung (3790m), the largest town in the Khumbu district, at the foot of the Mt. Khumbila (translated “God of Khumbu”). After lunch at Khumbu, we head to Everest View Hotel, well known for its magnificent views of Everest before heading back down to Namche (3540m) - 4 to 5-hour trek.
The fairly even trek, taking around 5 hours, to Tengboche zigzags, taking us past many valleys before arriving at Kenjoma, where it connects with the path from Khumjung just before passing many Mani stones (stones inscribed with sacred Buddhist prayers). The views of Everest and Mt. Ama Dablam are nothing short of breath-taking along this section of the trek. We pass the small village of Sanasa from where the path descends to Phunki Thanga (3250m) before a steep ascent through pine forests while passing more Mani stones as the trail hugs the slope before reaching Tengboche (3870m). Tengboche is famous for its sublime views of many of the world’s tallest peaks, such as Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Amadablam, Kantega, and Thamserku. Tonight we stay at Tengboche.
Today we head downhill on a 4 to 5-hour trek passing through forests before crossing the Imja Khola passing through the village of Pangboche, memorable for its fields encompassed by rock walls. Tonight we stay at Dingboche.
Our trek today begins at around 8.30 a.m taking us on a relatively easy route up to Chhukung. From here you get a superb view of Mt. Ama Dablam. The views from Chhukung and later in the valley of Island Peak is spectacular. Today’s trek is relatively short, mostly downhill, before reaching Dingboche where we stay overnight. This trek is often accompanied with strong winds.
Today’s trek passes many Chortens (Tibetan shrines & tombs) taking around 1.5 hours before reaching the village of Thugla (4600m) where we have lunch at its tea house. After lunch we head towards some towering peaks, such as Mt Pumori (7161m) and Mt. Nuptse (7861m) before reaching Lobuche Village (4940m). We then pass through an open valley before arriving at Thukla after leaving the Pheriche Aid Post at Pheriche (4371m). The aid post is manned during the peak trekking seasons We then descend to the yak pastures of the small settlement of Lobuche. Tosay’s trek will take around 5 hours. Tonight we stay at Lobuche.
This morning we will begin with a two-hour trek to Gorakshep. The trail is initially quite easy but progressively becomes more difficult. Along the trail, we have some fantastic views of several towering peaks, such as Everest, Nuptse, and other enormous peaks. The trail continues for about 150 meters before traversing a moraine and then gets easier before arriving at Gorakshep, one on the world’s most isolated and highest settlements. After stopping for lunch we trek toward EBC following a trail alongside the Khumbu ice sheet. The trek around the ice sheet takes around 1.5 hours before crossing the glacier and into the region of EBC (5360m). At base camp, you will have an opportunity to meet other climbers and share stories. From EBC you will have views of the Khumbu ice sheet and glacier with its frightening and dangerous crevices. We will then descend to Gorakshep, a journey of 6 to 7 hours.
The early morning trek to Kalapathar (5550m) from Gorakshep will take around two hours. After a short climb to Kalapathar, you will have uninterrupted views of Everest and other towering peaks. The magnificent photos of Everest seen on the internet are taken from this vantage point. From here we head down to Gorakshep, a fairly easy downhill trek. At Gorkashep we stop for tea and a snack before continuing on our descent to Pheriche. After accomplishing your goal of reaching EBC and experiencing high altitude climbing, you will sleep soundly at Pheriche. Today’s trek will take between 6 to 7 hours.
Leaving Debuche, we take a fairly easy trek for around 30 minutes before reaching Tengboche and then descend to Phunkithanga (3200m). Our final trek is to Namche where we can celebrate our success and reminisce sharing the highlights. This is also your last opportunity to appreciate the beauty of these towering peaks. At Namche you can reconnect via the internet with the outside world, visit the bread shop and maybe hang out at a bar!.
It is a fairly long day with a 7 hour trek from Namche to Lukla, which is mostly downhill with several sections of level ground. We leave the Sagarmatha National Park and eventually reach Lukla where we stay overnight.
Our morning flight will have us reach Kathmandu in around 30 minutes. During the flight, you will have a birds-eye view of many of the world’s soaring peaks in the Himalaya Ranges. Your guide will escort you from the airport to your hotel.
Our representative will take you to the airport around 3 hours before departure. This is only ‘farewell’ until we see you again for your next expedition into the Himalaya region.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfortable and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom - until Namche which is a thriving town seeing many more tourists and a greater range of accommodation. It should be noted that at higher elevations the quality of accommodation may not be as good, with more basic rooms with the bare necessities.

Meals during the trek

 In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Khumbu region are potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpas started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu to Lukla and return.

Physical fitness

EBC is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

I went with the opinion that it would be a nice pleasant walk, I discovered it was tougher than I anticipated which was what I had hoped for, the views and life experience overwhelmed me and I found the people to be fantastic.
