Mt. Everest (8848.86m), the highest peak on the planet is the traveler’s choice for trekking and Expedition proposed as the center in the world; Everest Base Camp trekking is following the great mountaineer’s footstep of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to its foothill at 5364m. Away from modern amenities and casual rushing life, the Everest Base Camp trek leads you to the top of soaring peaks above the cloud, where God lives for mediation. The beautiful scenic heavenly atmosphere hides you often with its unique glimpses and appearances around.

Every single trekking enthusiast and backpacker aspires to get as far as the Everest Base Camp (5,364 m) and contemplate the snow-capped peaks in amazement. In the heartland of formidable Himalayas lies the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest aka Sagarmatha in Nepali, i.e., accompanied by other renowned summits of Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Pumori (7,161m), Mt. Nuptse (7,855m) and many more. The desire to achieve the fantasy that embraces the prepossessing 360o outlooks of these alluring snow-capped mountain peaks attracts thousands of visitors, trekkers, and mountaineers to the Khumbu region throughout the year.

The 15 Days Everest base camp trekking commences with a scenic and splendid 35 minutes flight to Lukla where we advance on the declining trip along the bank of Dudh Koshi River and trek through the village of Phakding to Namche Bazaar, i.e., also celebrated as “Gateway to Mt. Everest”. Actually, from this point onwards, there are many routes to reach the Everest Base Camp (5,364 m). These renowned routes are Everest Base Camp Trekking, Gokyo Ri Trekking, Kalapather viewpoint trekking, Jiri to Everest Base Camp, and Three Pass Trek. These routes are equally audacious and carry their own significant importance. In our case, we now trek to the village of Tengboche (3,870m) which showcases a spectacular monastery with the noteworthy outlook of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6,812m), and so forth.

Afterward, we trek to Dingboche where we’ll have a day for resting and acclimatization purposes. In addition, we can enjoy the beautiful mountain looks. Resume our trek to Lobuche, then advance to Gorak Shep (5,170m) the following day. From here, we trek towards the Everest Base Camp. The Everest Base Camp renders the alluring vistas that include the snowy peaks of Nuptse, Khumbuste, and Pumori. Eventually, early morning at dawn arrives at Kalapather (5555m), the world-famous viewpoint that bestows awe-inspiring panoramas adorned with snow-covered summits of Everest, Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbetse, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku parallel with many other mountaintops. Subsequently, trek to Pheriche then back to Namche Bazaar, and conclude our escapade at Lukla. Keeping the bewitching vistas aside, we also interact with native Sherpa communities and experience their lifestyle, culture, traditions, and hospitality throughout the expedition. Buddhism-influenced prayer flags, Chortens, Mani walls, and Gompas render an essence of spirituality deep inside as you spend more time in this mesmerizing land of Sherpa and Yeti. Please kindly contact us for the Everest Base Camp Trekking.

Everest Base Camp Trekking season:

The best time to join Everest Base Camp Trekking is from February to May and September to November. Eventually, the lodges are mostly sold-out and the trail is mostly busy with trekkers. If you like to skip the crowd maybe the months of December and February are the alternate time to visit the wonder. Winter and rainy seasons are not perfect for witnessing the Himalayan vista due to the poor visibility you face with cancellation flights and hits on the regular itinerary. Enjoy this Nepal tour.

That can be obtained (Local Government fees) in Lukla after landing and National Park fees in Manjo village.

Early in the morning, we’ll take a pre-scheduled flight to Lukla. This spectacular flight lasts about 30 minutes progressing above the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayan Range. Breathtaking aerial vistas can be observed from the atmosphere. As soon as the flight lands, we’ll commence our trekking journey on the trail, which advances beyond the scenic terrain to the Sherpa village of Chheplung (nearly 30 minutes below Lukla).

Today, we tighten our shoelaces up and proceed on the trail along the western bank of Dudh Koshi to Benkar (2,700m). This particular village features hot springs contained in a shed and a neat waterfall. Afterward, the trail traverses to the eastern bank of Dudh Koshi River and makes its way through the woodland of rhododendron and blue pine to Chumoa and Mondzo, situated on the edge of Sagarmatha National Park. Here, we are required to show our permit or obtain one if we don’t have any. We’ll now advance to Monjo village (2,800m) and pursue an abrupt trail that abruptly descends across Monjo Khola. Afterward, the trail drops to Jhorsalle (2,804m) after navigating past the Dudh Koshi River again. Eventually, we arrive at the conflux of Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi Rivers. From here, we’ll make a precipitous climb to a suspension bridge across the Dudh Koshi River. After a brief steady ascent through the forest, we reach Namche Bazaar (3,340m) which extends alluring mountain vistas.

Day 04: Acclimatization Day in Namche Bazaar (3,340m)

Well renowned as the Sherpa ‘capital’ and administrative center of the Khumbu region, Namche Bazaar is home to an army camp and the headquarters of Sagarmatha National Park. It is a market town that hosts a weekly market every Saturday morning where traders from other places put their goods for sale. Note that this market operates till mid-day. Furthermore, Namche flaunts internet cafes, an ATM, a bank, a German bakery, and Medical and Tibetan souvenir shops alongside dozen of shops. Namche is an excellent place to acclimatize as it boasts numerous trails to surrounding villages and vantage points to aid in accommodating higher elevations with low oxygen levels. On top of that, this very Sherpa village presents a delightful panorama of gigantic peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and Taweche on a clear day. You can also get familiar with ethnic Sherpa customs and traditions succeeding a tour of the Village.

Day 05: Treks to Tengboche (3,870m)

This very day, we’ll trek on the trail, which initially advances through the Khumjung region and then progress to the prime route to Everest Base Camp at Shanasa. Afterward, the trail makes headway to Trashinga then Phunkitenga (3,250m), traversing the Dudh Koshi River. Phunkitenga harbors an army checkpoint that examines the trekker’s permits. Further, a broad and vertical climb uphill across the woodland composed of Juniper, Fir, Pine, and Rhododendron leads to Tengboche (3,870m). The village flaunts the vistas encompassing peaks like Everest, Ama Dablam, Kantega, etc. Moreover, it harbors Tengboche Monastery aka Dawa Choling Gompa, the largest of its kind in the Khumbu region. Tengboche also functions as a lookout point displaying sublime sunset vista over Mt. Everest and Mt. Ama Dablam.

Day 06: Tengboche to Dingboche (4,360m)

This morning, we will make our way down across the woodland at Debouche, chiefly occupied by rhododendron, birch, fir and juniper. Continuing the journey, we steadily head uphill on the trail that passes over the rushing Imja Khola and progresses to Pangboche (3,985m). You can explore the beautiful Pangboche Monastery, located within this very village. In addition, you can observe the elegant Mt. Ama Dablam here. Subsequently, the trail traverses Imja Khola again after ascending past the alpine hillside then come to Dingboche (4,360m).

Day 07: Dingboche Rest Day

Day seven of our adventure is allocated for the second acclimatization. As the elevation keeps increasing, we must adapt to the surroundings to avoid difficulties like Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If sitting ideal does not match your preference, you can hike in the magnificent Chhukung Valley. Also, you can trek to Nangkartshang Hill (5,090m), which showcases admirable vistas of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Island peak, Makalu, and an incredible view of the valley. This trek utilizes about 4-5 hours. But we strongly urge you to provide acclimatizing time to your body to prepare itself for the upcoming arduous journey.

Day 08: Dingboche to Lobuche (4,960m)

We also get to observe the astonishing sight encompassing Lingtren (6,697), Pumori (7,145 m), Lingtren (6,697), and Mahalangur Himal. You are deprived of the Everest view here as the world’s highest mountain is concealed behind the lofty wall of Lhotse and Nuptse. After a short hike, we’ll reach Lobuche (4,960m).

Day 09: Lobuche to Gorakshep (5,170m)

From Lobuche, we’ll begin our trek on a rock-strewn trail through the Khumbu Glacier to set foot in Gorak Shep (5,170m). We’ll then make our climb to Everest Base Camp (EBC). The Base camp is a wonderful place you can reach via trekking only (without mountaineering equipment). Here, you can see colorful camps set up by mountaineers during their Everest expedition. Don’t expect a warm welcome from the climbers there. Respect their privacy and concentrate on fulfilling your Everest dream, i.e., sightseeing and snapping pictures. You may be disappointed as you don’t observe the full picture of the colossal Mt. Everest from bottom to top as expected because you are too near to the mountain itself. But, you can contemplate striking Khumbu Icefall. On top of that, you can also get awe-inspiring glimpses of snowy mountaintops including Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern, Khumbutse, Nuptse, and many more. In the end, we’ll return back to Gorak Shep (5,170m).

Day 10: Gorakshep to Kala Patther (5,545m)

Today, early in the morning, we will make our way to Kalapatthar. At an elevation of 5,545m, Kalapatthar is the highest point of our trek and a widely celebrated viewpoint in the Khumbu region, located further and at a higher elevation than Everest Base Camp. Therefore, this view tends to turn your Everest dream into reality by showcasing the full view of the world’s highest peak in close proximity. This spot also flaunts the sight of the mesmerizing sunrise above Mt. Everest aka Chomolungma or Mother Goddess of the Universe in Tibetan and Sagarmatha in Nepali respectively. Furthermore, it is the ultimate location to enjoy the panoramic outlook encompassing snow-capped mountaintops of Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse, and many more. Else, just above the Lho La pass, we can discover the colossal face of Changtse (7,750m). Since no accommodation facilities are available here, we’ll trek back to Pheriche (4,288m).

Day 11: Pheriche to Namche Bazaar (3,340m)

At the break of dawn, we pursue the trail, which progresses back to Pangboche through the green woodlands. Subsequently, the trail advances across Tengboche. En route, we’ll probably confront exquisite Himalayan wildlife, Himalayan Tahr, Pheasants, Musk deer, and much more. The trail now descends along the Dudh Koshi River to Phunki Tenga then ascends to the Khumjung region past Sanasa Village. Eventually, the trail leads to Namche Bazaar (3,340m).

Day 12: Namche Bazaar to Lukla (2,840m)

The trail makes a downhill descent beyond the suspension bridges to the village of Monjo. Following the progress across the villages of Chumoa and Mondzo, the trail passes to the other side of rhododendron and fir woodland. Complemented by lush greenery and snowy mountaintops, the trail now traverses suspension bridges and numerous Sherpa settlements. Without any obstacles to break off, the trail finally reaches the village of Phakding (2,610m). From this point onwards, the trail ultimately ends at Lukla (2,840m).
