The most amazing experience of my life ! Reviewed Tour: Everest Base Camp Trek

  • Kristiyan
  • From Bulgaria
“I don't know from where to start, this was really the best experience of my life and it's all thanks to Lok our amazing guide.I have visited many countries and different places but the views are no matchto the views you are going to see on the EBC trek.There were a few moments where I would post a picture during the trek or send it to friends and they would say it's photoshopped , and it would look photoshopped even to me haha When me and my friend started planning the trip there were so many companies to choose from and it was a bit overwhelming, so I started asking questions to a few of them but Upendra the owner had the most impact on me , he was so fast to respond to the million questions I had that I was left pleasantry surprised and decided to go with Himalayan Leisure Inc and it was the best decision I have made.Our guide Lok welcomed us at the airport , and took us to the hotel where we had a short meeting with Upendra to give us a summary of the trip , and he also gave us duffel bags, sleeping bags since we didn't have any.Next morning we got up early and went towards the domestic airport to get a flight to Lukla, Lok had arranged a breakfast with the hotel in advance and had it packed and ready for us because it was still too early. Even before we boarded the flight to Lukla he told us where to sit to get the best views and pictures.Once we arrived at Lukla the trek started and we were lucky to have very good weather through all of it.Every single day our guide Lok made sure he asks us what we want to have for breakfast and when we woke up , 5 minutes later we had it server with coffee/tea.He was also organizing our lunch and dinner and it was always fast which was really good after a long day.We were never in rush , he was walking behind us letting us set the pace and take as many breaks as we needed , and if anyone of us was ever tired he would offer to take our bag.Every night he would also take measurement of our oxygen and ask us how are we doing , do we have any issues and make sure we drink plenty of water when resting and have always water in our bags for the trek.One of the days I was not feeling very well probably because I got sunburned so he went immediatly and got a thermometer but luckily after getting some sleep I was a lot better and didn't have any other issues during the trip or AMS symptoms, so make sure you have sun protection for those long treks and a hat.During the trek there were a few people that we met and they didn't make it all the way to Base Camp and I feel if we were doing the trek on our own we might not have made it as well.If you are considering the EBC trek , just do it honestly, I was thinking about it for at least a whole year having the feeling that it might be too much for me but it wasn't, I just regret not doing it earlier.Also definetly make sure to ask for Lok to be your guide if possible , he is such a good human being and also really funny that you will feel way better just having him around you.”

“Having recently completed the Everest Base Camp Trek with the icicles adventure treks , I would just like to say, what an excellent team they were. From our first meeting at the airport in Kathmandu until we left 16 days later, nothing was to much trouble.Our Guide shiva, and the two porters for our group were excellent, always providing the best service without complaint and a smile, he was great company too and an excellent photographer. Some of the best photographs of our journey were taken by him and shared with the group.The accommodation and food provided from beginning to end far exceeded our expectations. This was an amazing adventure made even better by the icicles adventure treks, we were made comfortable, welcome and happy all along the way and nothing was too much trouble for Guide Raj.If you're considering a visit to Nepal, I would highly recommend this company and all it's wonderful staff.Whether it's one of the many treks available or just a guided tour of Kathmandu, you won't be disappointed.We also had a guided tour of some of the most important temples in Kathmandu and shiva was knowledgeable and again great company.Thank you for hosting our adventure of a lifetime and leaving us with the best memories”

“I have been working with Chris and his team on behalf of my clients for the past one year.

In a nutshell, I couldn't have picked a better partner.

His ability to manage situations (as things are extremely fluid during adventures), remain calm, problem solves and handle updates is beyond exemplary.

Thank you for everything that you do.”
The tour operator responded
“Hello and Namaste from NCA Team!

We thank you for your wonderful review. We appreciate it a lot and willing to serve you again in future.

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

On the Everest trail, not far from Namche Bazar, with a view towards the beautiful Mt Amadablam

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.
