Incredible journey trip of a lifetime with Alpine Ramble Treks team
5 - Excellent
  • Nathaile
  • From USA
“My boyfriend and I did EverestBase amp trek in the month of March 2021 with Alpine Ramble Treks despite the covid-19 situation, we managed to travel and do this incredible trip with the best team of Nepal.On the first day of our arrival, we have warmly welcomed with big smiling faces by our guides Laxmna and Dil, managing Director of ART, and took us to the hotel and told us all the planned for the trip, we felt so easy and comfortable after hearing all the program in details by Dil and our excitement grow high and our nervous level is down. We started our trekking from the next day of our arrival in Kathmandu with an exciting flight out to Lukla, the flight was early in the morning we saw spectacular mountains during our short flight as well. Our trek started from Lukla and ended up here, the trek itself was amazing, a lifetime experience for both of us, During the trek we had such a lovely environment with our guide, Laxman our guide was always making sure we are in all good, he is very experienced guide probably we see the best guide for the first time since we started exploring the world, he is very knowledgable and experienced with a warm heart. He knows everything like culture, mountains, people and he is like a boss in the Everest region, everyone meets Laxman says namaste, and talks along the way, we felt very lucky to have Laxman as our tour guide for our EBC trek, he feeds us well and teaches us how to walk in the high altitudes area, he explained very well about the mountains and its history!Dil was very kind to our email responding, his response is swift and details, he gave a lot of information before we arrive in Nepal, even after our arrivals, he is a cheerful and helpful man, very easy personality but very professional man. great work.We would highly recommend Alpine Ramble Treks to anyone who likes to visit Nepal for any treks in Nepal, they are professional, very helpful, and knowledgeable team we have ever found.We miss you and Nepal so much see you next time!”
Incredible trip with Alpine Ramble
5 - Excellent
  • Gwen
  • From Nepal
“If you plan a trip the Everest Base Camp, you will notice 100s of trekking companies. I contacted a few and end up choosing Alpine Ramble because of their competitive prices and responsiveness.I was promptly picked up at the airport and taken to my hotel: Hotel Thamel and Parks which was great for the value. They have a good restaurant, friendly staff and wonderful spa. I was then met by Dil (the owner) who went over our schedule for the next 15 days, and also helped me shop for last minute gears.The following day I was dropped off at the airport to fly to Lukla where my guide was waiting for me. Dipak (my guide) was amazing! I overpacked and he helped me carry some of my stuff so I didnt have to hire a porter, which he didnt have to do. He was knowledgeable, very attentive and helpful. Although his Nepali accent was a bit strong and sometimes hard to understand, his kindness and thoughtfulness surpassed that little detail.Once back in Kathmandu, Dil and a driver picked me up at the airport and insured I had a great time. During the Kathmandu walking tour, Dil even provided a guide for me, instead of just a driver, so I would have a better experience. At the end, Dil took me to a nice traditional Nepali dinner with folkloric dancers and gave me a certificate which was very thoughtful.One last thing I would like to point out about this company that other may not have, Dil has a local connection with the airline industry. It it well known that many flights from Lukla to Kathmandu can be delayed or cancelled due to the weather. If it is your case, you will be put on a waiting list for days and may miss your international flight, but these guys have the ability to fit you into a flight because of their local connections which was very helpful in my case.Overall, I was very pleased with my trip.”

Everest Base Camp Trek - Overview

The Everest Base Camp trek (EBC) is possibly the most dramatic and picturesque in the Nepalese Himalaya. Not only will you stand face to face with Mount Everest, Sagarmatha in Nepali language, at 8,848m (29,029 ft), but you will be following in the footsteps of great mountaineers like Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay who all wanted to reach Everest's summit.

The trek to EBC is scenic and offers ever-changing Himalayan scenery through forests, hills and quaint villages. A great sense of anticipation builds as you trek up the Khumbu Valley, passing through intriguing Sherpa villages, Tibetan monasteries, all towered over by some of highest and most stunningly beautiful mountains of the world. In the evenings you will be rewarded with delicious Nepalese cuisine around the dining-room fire while sipping Sherpa tea and conversing with other like-minded travelers.

Besides the superlative Mount Everest, some other prominent peaks visible during the Everest Base Camp trek include Lhotse (8501m), Makalu (8463m), Cho Oyu (8153m), and Ama Dablam (6856m).

Everest Base Camp Trek - Itinerary

The standard trekking itinerary for the Everest Base Camp Trek is 12 days long. However, it may vary slightly depending on the trekking agency you choose to go with:

  • Day 1: Flight to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2,650m)
  • Day 2: Phakding - Namche Bazaar (3,440m)
  • Day 3: Acclimization day at Namche Bazaar
  • Day 4: Namche - Tengboche (3,860m)
  • Day 5: Tengboche - Dingboche (4,360m)
  • Day 6: Dingboche - Dughl (4,600m)
  • Day 7: Dughl - Lobuche (4,940m)
  • Day 8: Lobuche - Gorakshep (5,150m), then to Everest Base Camp (5,364m), and back to Gorakshep
  • Day 9: Gorakshep - Kala Patthar (5,643m) - Pheriche (4,280m)
  • Day 10: Pheriche - Namche (3,440m)
  • Day 11: Namche - Phakding - Lukla (2,860m)
  • Day 12: Flight from Lukla - Kathmandu

Alternate Routes:

  • Option 1: Although the EBC trek is the most well-known of all the treks in Nepal, there are other alternative treks that you can take. A popular choice is the shorter Everest Panorama Trek which can be completed in 8 days. You will get to see Mount Everest and the surrounding peaks but the Base Camp itself is not part of this trekking route. The maximum altitude on this trek is normally around 3,860 meters, as the itinerary's highest point is normally Tengboche. 
  • Option 2: Another option is the Gokyo Trek which takes 12 days to complete and offers views of Everest and nearby peaks, Gokyo Lake and the longest glacier in Nepal - Ngozumpa Glacier. You also have the option to combine the Everest Base Camp Trek with the Gokyo Trek for a 15-day trip.
  • Option 3: A third alternative is the combined Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Trek which takes 15 days. This trek is highly recommended, as you will both see the amazing and pristine Gokyo region as well as Everest Base Camp.
  • Option 4: Finally, if you have 16 days available or more, you can do the amazing Everest Base Camp 3 Passes Trek, crossing the 3 passes Kong Ma La Pass, Cho La Pass, and Renjo La Pass, each of them above 5,000 meters.

Everest Base Camp - Safety considerations

Please note the following safety considerations for the Everest Base Camp trek:

  • This is a high altitude trek and therefore careful acclimatization is needed. Acclimatization days are required during the trek to avoid altitude sickness. 
  • Temperatures regularly drop below freezing around EBC during early spring, late autumn and winter. Please ensure that you have the proper gear and clothing for the time of the year.
