The Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is renowned worldwide as one of the best and most challenging trekking routes. Centered around the world's highest peak, Mount Everest, this trek offers jaw-dropping mountain scenery of four out of the six world's highest peaks– Mt Everest (8,848m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt Makalu (8,470m), and Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m). 

During the Everest base camp hike, you'll traverse the traditional Sherpa villages, hidden monasteries, and picturesque mountain scenery. The Everest base camp trek itinerary includes two acclimatization days in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche. 

The EBC trek journey begins with an exhilarating mountain flight to Lukla, followed by a trek along the Dudh Koshi River and through Sagarmatha National Park. Along the EBC trek route, you’ll stay at some of the world's highest Sherpa villages and closely examine the remote Himalayas' Sherpa cultures, traditions, and lifestyles. 

Namche Bazaar is one of the main Sherpa towns you'll encounter while Everest trek to base camp. It is famous as an acclimatization destination. You'll hike to Hotel Everest View, offering the best viewpoint to see Mount Everest.

After a day of acclimatization at Namche, the EBC trek continues to Tengboche, where you'll visit the renowned Tengboche Monastery. Further, the EBC hike continues towards Dingboche, where you take a rest day to acclimate to the high altitude. You can have an acclimatization hike from Dingboche to Nangkartshang Peak, offering marvelous mountain vistas. 

The landscape transforms into a mesmerizing spectacle as you continue the EBC journey from Lobuche to Gorak Shep. Walking alongside the majestic Khumbu Glacier, you arrive at Mount Everest Base Camp.  

Standing at the base of the world's tallest peak feels like stepping into a live mountain museum, where every towering peak tells a story of success and challenge. The scene is completed by the magnificent Khumbu Icefall, the most dangerous part to traverse during a Mount Everest expedition. 

The next day, hike to Kala Patthar for the best sunrise over Mt. Everest and other towering peaks.  After enjoying the breathtaking sunrise and mountain scenery, return to Gorak Shep and descend to Pheriche village. Now retrace your steps to Tengboche and Namche Bazaar before reaching Lukla again. Once in Lukla, fly back to Kathmandu, concluding your Everest base camp trek in Nepal. 

Trekking to Mount Everest base camp requires exceptionally high physical fitness. Various factors add to the difficulty of the EBC trek, like the mountainous terrain, trek duration, daily distance covered, and the number of days spent at high altitudes. While not all treks in Nepal are equally demanding, the Everest base camp trekking package stands out as an actual test of endurance. 

There is something extraordinary about choosing the Everest base camp trek in Nepal. It's not about the adventure– though that's definitely a huge part of it. It's also about soaking in the rich culture and history of the Sherpa people as you trek through their villages. 

You'll be amazed by the beauty of the world's tallest peaks, standing tall all around you. And reaching Everest Base camp itself is an accomplishment like no other. It's a moment that will stay with you forever, reminding you of the strength and resilience it took to conquer this iconic trek. 

Thus, by choosing the EBC trek, you are not just going for an adventure- you are gaining an experience that will leave a lasting impression on your heart and soul.

Today, your journey begins with a trek to Gorak Shep, the final settlement before the Everest Base Camp. Many hikers spend the night before summiting Kala Patthar at sunrise. After reaching Gorak Shep, you’ll hike to the ultimate destination of Everest Base Camp. 

 

A trail from Lobuche to the Gorak Shep runs alongside the Khumbu Glacier. At such a high altitude, moving slowly and staying hydrated is essential, as the elevation above 5,000 meters can significantly affect most trekkers. 

After traversing Lobuche Pass at an elevation of 5,110 meters, you’ll arrive at Gorak Shep. Drop your backpack, grab lunch, and prepare for the final push to Everest Base Camp. 

As you leave Gorak Shep, the trail follows the Khumbu Glacier with the Mount Everest towering behind it. Take in the sights of this massive glacier filled with dirt and rock as you steadily gain elevation toward base camp. 

The trail consists of technical terrain with sand, rocks, and some slippery sections, so it’s vital to proceed cautiously and avoid rushing. As you ascend, you’ll catch sight of the Khumbu Icefall. 

Passing some Sherpa prayer flags on the rocky terrain, you’ll approach the final stretch of trail leading to Everest base camp. You’ll see tons of prayer flags and the iconic Everest base camp rock engraved with its name here.

While most of the trekking route is downhill, expect some uphill climbs too. Along the way, enjoy mountain and river scenes, pass through small villages, and encounter mani walls and chortens. 

As you approach Phakding, the landscape becomes greener with abundant flora and fauna with some mountains towering in the distance. Keep an eye out for yaks, donkeys, and horses carrying supplies.

Essential Info

Physical Fitness

Many people have questions as to what level of physical fitness is required for visiting Nepal, and that is extremely reliant on what activity the visitor is engaging in. With that said, for a standard trek of moderate grading (Everest Base Camp Trek is an example of moderate) the daily activity will be 7-8 hours, and elevation will generally not exceed 5,500 meters. The day’s trekking is sustained and will involve both long steep climbs, and descents with a variety of terrain underfoot from well-trodden paths, to rocks covered with ice or snow. A typical day would include a number of climbs or descents of 500 meters or more, starting after breakfast, resting at lunch, then continuous trekking until arriving at the teahouse.

In preparation for the trek, it is important to begin a training requirement at least 4 months before departing for Nepal. Three to four hours of aerobic exercise like running, walking, swimming, cycling & some gym work per week is the minimum and most will find it beneficial to add some basic strength training to their physical fitness routine. One of the best ways to prepare is to take practice hikes with a daypack roughly the same weight as what you will be taking on the trek. Do this only after a baseline of fitness has been reached. Moving fast is not the end goal, rather endurance is the focus, and will provide a more enjoyable and safe adventure.

Trekking Seasons in Nepal

There are two main seasons in which Nepal sees the most amount of visitors. Fall (September through November) being the most popular, and spring (March to May) coming in close behind. The summer months of June, July and August are the monsoon season and as such the trails are mostly washed out, and roads can sometimes be impassible due to landslide activates. Not to mention the view is non-existent. Still, there are a few places that lie in rain shadow areas and see significantly less rain if any at all, and summer can be a good time to visit these places.

Winter in Nepal is dry, with very cold nights where temperatures can drop to -20°C at the highest altitudes, but the days are pleasant and sunny. Additionally, the trails are much less crowded during this time of year. In Kathmandu, maximum daytime temperatures reach around 20°C.

Fall is the most popular because it’s after the monsoons, and the air is dry, the days are sunny, and everything is green in the lower valleys from the excessive rains. Spring is a popular choice because some rain returns, but the weather is generally warm and dry, and flowers are in bloom in the lower elevations.

Trekking Day

A typical trekking day begins with a cup of tea at around 6 in the morning. It is advised to pack your trekking gears in a duffle bag and essential supplies in your day pack in these early hours. After having breakfast, we begin the trek and head along the trail at around 8 am. The morning walk is designed to be longer as we begin with refreshed bodies and enthusiasm. Following a good morning’s walk, we make stop for lunch at around 11.30 am. The lunch involves group meals enjoying the vicinity around the stop. You can explore the surrounding or use the time according to your own consent. After resting for about an hour or two, we resume our trek to reach teahouse or camp by 3-4 pm. The afternoon walk is relatively shorter and can involve games and side trips as organized by the trekking guides. You also can enjoy breaks during the trek to relax, read or stroll around the area. You can converse with the local people and observe their lifestyle. Dinner is served around 7 in the evening to round off the day.

Meals and Accommodations

During the length of the trek, the accommodation style is commonly referred to as teahouse. These are family-run basic lodges that fill the role of the restaurant, meeting place, and boarding house for tourists. Electricity can be found in the rooms, which means one light bulb, and one or two outlets for charging electronics. The common areas are also lit by electricity. Teahouses may use solar, hydroelectric, or have electrical lines running into the village, so the commonality and availability of electricity may vary.

Most teahouses have private rooms, though if the trek is in a more remote or high altitude place dormitories are the norm. Each room has 1 or 2 single beds with basic bedding, and the bathroom is shared. Expect a mix of western and squat style toilets in the bathrooms.

Breakfast and dinner are taken at the teahouse and these lodges have large family style dining rooms centered on a stove to provide heat. The menu will have Nepali style western foods such as pasta, pizza, pancakes, burgers, and fries. Also on the menu is the traditional Dal Bhat meal. This is a lentil soup with rice and vegetable or meat curry. Most menus will also offer a smattering of local cuisine.

Internal Flight Delays

Nepal is an incredible country of mountains and valleys, rivers and green rolling hills. With this incredible diversity of landscapes, road travel can be extremely time consuming and flights within Nepal to reach popular trekking destinations is a must. Along with this mountainous terrain also comes the possibility of in climate weather. Not to mention the incredibly high number of visitors during peak seasons makes internal flight delays a very real possibility. To manage this possibility, it may be helpful to have a few extras days on either end of your tour. If any cancellations or flight delays do occur (high chances of flight delays from around Kathmandu to Lukla, Everest region), we also provide services to arrange helicopter to help you to be on your schedule on the premises of Civil Aviation Rules in Nepal which state that helicopters can fly if the visibility is 1500m. The cost ranges from USD350 to USD650 according to the number of passengers. The payment can be made either to the helicopter company or to us directly and can be made either by cash or using a credit card. It will also be helpful to purchase and review your insurance as some of the alternative measures for travel may be covered. Flight insurance too may cover changing your international flight if necessary.

Travel Insurance

Many expeditions and tours require that travel insurance is purchased prior to arriving in Nepal, but other treks and tours may not. However, travel insurance is definitely an important consideration. There are a number of reasons to consider insurance. Firstly, it may be required, so check to see what is being asked for by the company. Second, Nepal is a landlocked country, and there are few direct flights. Travel in and out can encounter some disruptions and if purchasing insurance, make sure flight delays and cancellations are included. The next reason to choose insurance is that, though every safeguard is in place during your tour, there are always extenuating circumstances that may result in an accident. Read the fine print of insurance policies to ensure trekking or any other activity you are engaging in is covered, as some policies have stopped covering trekking in certain places. It is impossible to have a relaxing trip without the comfort of good insurance, so do the research and choose carefully.

Nepal Visa Entry Procedure

For entry into Nepal, there are visa requirements everyone (except Indian nationals) must complete before being allowed to pass through immigration. This is for air travel as well as overland transportation. Most visitors may obtain a visa to enter Nepal, however, there are exceptions. There are a number of entry points where you can obtain the visa upon arriving by land, but Tribhuvan International Airport is the only one for air transport.

Visa on Arrival Tourist Visa

Three options are available for entry

15-day single entry: US $30

30-day single entry: US $50

90-day multiple entries: US $125

Please have a passport valid for at least 6 months from the time of entry, and have cash ready, preferably in US dollars, though there are other currencies Nepal Immigration accepts. If you are entering via overland, you must have US cash and 3 passport photos. For arrival by air, the kiosks at the airport take your picture for you.

For the most up to date list of exceptions for visa on arrival or to obtain the most current visa information, visit the Nepal Department of Immigration website.

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)

Acute Mountain Sickness is usually seen in un-acclimatized people shortly after ascent to high altitudes. The condition occurs due to the thinning of air as the altitude increases. The condition, if not taken seriously and treated immediately, can be life-threatening and its symptoms can be seen generally above 3000 meters. Some of the symptoms of AMS are nausea, vomiting, tiredness, shortness of breath and cerebral pain. The treks are designed to properly acclimatize you to the change in high altitude climate and sufficient precautionary measures too are taken to take utmost caution. We also equip our staffs with cell phones and satellite phones in occurrence of any emergency cases. We are greatly driven to keep the safety and security of our clients as our foremost concern.

Drinking Water

Water is essential for life, and clean water is imperative while on holiday. When choosing to visit less developed countries it is a concern that all travelers should consider. A few options are available when trekking or traveling in Nepal that will mitigate any chances of drinking contaminated water which could cause disruption of an otherwise fun adventure. The first consideration to take into account is that tap water should not be ingested. That even means when brushing your teeth. Most will choose to buy bottled water and if doing so make sure the cap has not been opened previously. Plastic bottle refuse is a problem, and with that being said there are other options on the market to assist in making water drinkable. Your local outdoor store can help with choosing what option might be best to use in conjunction with a reusable bottle. Your guide can also steer you to water that has been filtered and purified so ask him or her what is available.

Arrival Instruction

Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, our company representatives are stationed to welcome you to the country. We request you to carefully look for your name being held by our representatives following the events upon landing. The representatives are responsible to escort you to your hotel in Kathmandu. You will see men offering you to carry luggage and take you to your destination as you exit the airport. We request you pay no attention to these people and follow the designated representatives and follow their instructions. You will also need to keep an eye on your luggage and belongings to avoid any complications.
