EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK

Cross this off your “bucket list” – a “dream come true experience”

Everest is the ultimate goal of many people and those who had already been there rating it as one of the best experiences of their lives.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is probably the most popular and iconic trekking destination in the Himalayas. Everest is located in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas and is the world's highest mountain at 8,848 meters above sea level located on the international border between China (Tibet Autonomous Region) and Nepal Mount Everest is also well known as Sagarmatha in Nepal and as Chomolungma in Tibet.

Everest Base Camp Trek will retrace the footsteps of  New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay who reached the summit on their epic ascent in 1953. Heading into the Sherpa heartland of Khumbu Valley allows you to gradually acclimatize on your way to Base Camp (BC). The scenery is awe-inspiring, with the Khumbu region boasting  4 of the world’s 6  tallest peaks, including  Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Cho Oyu. Trekking in the Himalayan ranges gives you a first-hand glimpse into the life of world-famous climbers -the Sherpas. Experience life in the highest Buddhist monasteries in the world and explore the WorldHeritage-listed Sagarmatha National Park and its unique variety of Himalayan flora and fauna.

The Sherpas have a traditional and well-deserved reputation of being the best mountain guides in the world. Their stamina and strength is unparalleled.  You will discover Buddhist monuments, Sherpa stone stupas and carved mani walls (Tibetan) and decades-old monasteries as well as some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable in the Khumbu  Valley.  Lodges here range from standard to luxury. The Sherpa people have a reputation for their hospitality, kindness, and sense of humor. This is understandable when you live on top of the world! 
On this trek, you will reach an altitude of 5,550 meters at Kala Patthar just 2 hours away from Gorakshep, which is one of the highlights of your trek to Everest Base Camp.  Gorakshep offers you the best view of Everest and a place where your camera goes into overload!. You will also have a panoramic view of Changtse, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Khumbu glacier.
Millions of people dream of travelling to this majestic land of iconic mountains.  If you want to make your dream of Everest come true, then share your dream with us and we will tailor your trek to meet your expectations.

Highlights of a 15-day trek to Everest Base Camp

  • Trek to the base of the world’s highest peak Mt. Everest at 5,364m.
  •  Exploring Sherpa's traditional villages enriched with Buddhist culture and customs.
  • Visit historical sights and interesting monasteries at the base of some of the world's most spectacular peaks, beautiful alpine rhododendrons, pine forests, and the barren Khumbu icefall glaciers.
  •   Experience panoramic views of enormous mountains while spending your nights in the warmth and comfort of clean scenic lodges - and of course, the well known Sherpa hospitality.

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 renovations and high air traffic at Kathmandu's only international airport. This change in the airport will continue into 2020.as well. This should take effect from March 2020.

ITINERARY

Expand All
Welcome to Kathmandu, a city full of vibrant markets, bustling streets, colorful temples, and grand pagodas. Our guide will meet you at the airport and take you to our hotel. The remainder of the day you will have an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the shopping areas closest to your hotel and catch up on shopping for equipment. In the evening, our tour guide will give you a brief introduction and provide valuable information about the trek. In the evening you will meet the rest of the group at a welcome dinner at a local Nepali restaurant.
At about 8.30 am, after a healthy breakfast, your sightseeing trip begins and takes you to several cultural sites and places of historic interest in the Kathmandu Valley. A private car and guide will lead the way!
After an early morning start, you will be picked up at the hotel by our guide who will take you to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla takes around 35 minutes, time enough to take in the spectacular views of the Himalayas. After landing at Tenzing-Hilary airport you will meet your porter who will carry your luggage. You then begin your journey with a relatively easy trek passing a Kani (ceremonial gatehouse) before the trail descends then leads above Kyangma village with its large gompa (monastery) and school. We then continue to Cheplung village where the trail passes through community forest within sight of the Dudh Koshi River. After crossing the suspension bridge you climb across the ridge to Ghat and then passes a school and complex of Mani walls, Chortens and prayer wheels. After a short walk from Ghat, we reach Phakding. Overnight at a mountain lodge. Breakfast, lunch & dinner Included
After breakfast, the trek crosses several suspension bridges over the Dudh Kosi River before passing through Tok-Tok, Bhenkar, and Monjo and then arriving at Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate where you will be required to buy a permit. After following the river bed for a few hours and after the last Hillary suspension bridge, there is a steep uphill trek to Namche Bazaar. Namche has a good selection of restaurants, a cyber café, pubs, post office, ATM and banks. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
This idyllic town is an ideal place for"acclimatization". Health specialists recommend we spend the day being active, rather than sitting idle. From Namche it is possible to take a short hike to Everest View Resort, Thame, visit Khunde or relax and explore Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is the main center of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, internet cafes, shops, restaurants, bakery, and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. A short trek of only a hundred metres will help us to properly acclimatize. Our guides will also take us to the Tourist Visitor Center near the headquarters of the Sagarmatha National Park where we can observe an assortment of relics related to the first mountaineers to climb Everest, Sherpa culture and discover the varied plant and animal life of the Everest region. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
The trek continues along the rapid flowing glacial waters of the Dudh Kosi with magnificent views of the mountains (Mt. Everest, Lhoste, Taboche peak, Amadablam. You eventually reach an altitude of 3,800 meters at Tengboche. At the Tengboche monastery are unbelievably ornate wall hangings, a 20-foot sculpture of various poses of the Buddha and musical instruments and robes of the Lamas. Our group will be taken to observe a prayer ceremony, either in the evening or in the morning, depending on how the trekking goes this day. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
The trek from Tengboche to Dingboche is only a short distance which we will most likely complete in the afternoon. The last hill into Dingboche, and at this high altitude, is challenging!. The trail then heads to the village of Somare (4020m) and then to Orsho, both of which have lodged. Later the trail divides, with the left trail heading up to Pheriche before crossing a suspension bridge and a steep climb to the village of Dingboche (4460m) with many good guesthouses. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
It is sensible to spend another day acclimatizing before heading to higher altitudes. One way of doing this is to hike up to Chukkung Valley (4730m) and on to Island Peak (Imja Tes). Above Dingboche is Nagkartshang Gompa (a strenuous trek takes around 2 to 3 hours), or alternatively head to Pheriche for an afternoon lecture on altitude sickness. The trail to Chhukung leaves Dingboche heading to Bibr (4570m) and is surrounded by fabulous mountain Peaks: Taboche, Nuptse, Lhotse, the enormous flute-shaped pass of Amphu Laptsa Pass, Ama Dablam. Chukkung has several lodges and is the most popular spot for those climbing Island Peak. If trekkers feel better acclimatized they can head up a grassy slope towards the peak of Chukkung Ri (5550m) for a magnificent view of Makalu. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
After breakfast, our trek starts with an easy walk towards Thukla before crossing the steep terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier and then passing through the boulder-strewn slopes as we ascend Chupki Lhara where we find clusters of stones with prayer flags placed by Sherpas as a memorial to Scott Fischer (American mountaineer), 10-time Everest summiteer Babu Chiri Sherpa (Nepalese Sherpa mountain guide) who perished on a mission to climb Mt. Everest. The path then continues to the Khumbu Glacier moraine and before us are many beautiful mountain peaks - Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Mahalangur Himal. We stay overnight in Lobuche. Breakfast,lunch & dinner included
We commence our trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp through the vast Gorak-Shep. Along the trail, we pass the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. At this point the path can be confusing, so following your guide is important. The thin air at this high altitude can be exhausting. We traverse rocky dunes, moraine, and streams before reaching the Mt. Everest Base Camp. From Everest Base Camp you will see some of the world’s highest peaks, in stark contrast to the gray surroundings - especially in the spring. Before we are Khumbuste, Nuptse, and Pumori. We will then head back to Gorak Shep. Breakfast Lunch & Dinner Included.
At around 4 a.m. in the pre-dawn darkness and cold temperatures (-10 to -14 C) we begin our trek. It is common for there to be cold winds at this altitude. Towering peaks, such as Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Changtse loom before us to the east as Everest comes into view. Not until we reach Kala Patthar (5550m) do we get a 360 degree up-close and bird’s eye view of Mount Everest. After taking in the panoramic views and madly clicking cameras we will return back to Lobuche and then to Pangboche for a good night's rest. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
From Pangboche we retrace our steps descending to the Imja Khola and then up through the rhododendron forest to Tengboche monasteries. For some, this will be an opportunity to see the nuns perform their religious ceremonies at the Tengboche Monastery. After lunch at Tengboche, we continue our trek across the hillside blanketed by colorful rhododendron and juniper trees. After crossing the bridge over the (milky river) Dudh Koshi River our trail continues through the Dudh Koshi gorge descending rapidly through the pine forests before reaching Sansa. Along the way we keep our eyes peeled for wildlife, such as (Himalaya Thar) mountain goats, snow leopards, and colorful pheasants while passing through the forest. After passing a Chorten we reach the army camp at Namche Bazaar where we stay overnight. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
This is our final day of trekking before returning to our starting point at Lukla. This is a time to reflect on the unforgettable memories of our trek as a group and our achieving our individual goals. A free afternoon allows you time to relax and enjoy a hot shower! In the evening we will celebrate with a few drinks and dance.. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
After our 13 day trek, we take an early morning flight from Lukla to Kathmandu. After arriving at Kathmandu, you can take a rest or do some shopping. This is also a time to catch up on visiting places you missed on arrival in Kathmandu. Our guides will continue to assist you with b souvenir shopping or sightseeing. This evening is our farewell dinner at a traditional Nepali restaurant along with a traditional cultural dance show.
Your adventure comes to an end today – but your memories will last a lifetime! Our company representative will take you to the airport approximately 3 hours before your scheduled flight. On your way home you'll have plenty of time to plan your nearest next adventure and explore the most magnificent mountains of Nepal.

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 comfort 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 is 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!

Don't skip the acclimatization days. Better to continue with Diamox (if any symptoms show up). Drink Garlic Soup. In the higher elevation, there is less oxygen in the air and this is more so while crossing high passes. Our expert guides will advise you on how to avoid AMS and treat it when/ if required.

Everest base camp trek was absolutely amazing. If you are thinking about doing it, then go for it. But, be warned it is also extremely tough. Some of the days are long and the altitude can really get to you. All that said though, reaching base camp is definitely worth the effort. Nepal is an amazing country and home to some absolutely stunning scenery. Kathmandu is a crazy, bustling city that's so full of life and culture. Definitely, worth the visit, you will not be disappointed! thank You, sherpa Team!

What an amazing trip! The wild beauty of the landscape, the Sherpas villages, the stunning mountains and glaciers, the Sherpas Buddhist culture, the Nepalese people... Although Everest Base Camp was the highlight of the trip, it was disappointing as they were no one, no tents, nothing and the view of Everest were very good. However, the view from Kala Pattar was stunning!
