“We just finished the Everest Base Camp/Kalapathar trek and the experience from start to finish was fantastic. Unique Adventure organised everything, and everything went smoothly from pick up at the airport onwards.

The day before our trek we met our guide, Ram. If you are booking with Unique Adventure, I highly recommend you request Ram as your guide, as he was fantastic from start to finish and we couldn't have asked for a better companion. He was incredibly helpful and informative, and a lovely, happy person to be around. Ram was really reassuring and provided any assistance we needed, which was particularly great when one of our party had food poisoning. Ram made sure everyone was OK, but was also experienced enough to know it wasn't altitude sickness and to know our limits. On top of that, he bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed. We couldn't recommend him more and hope we can trek with him again in the near future.

The trek itself is spectacular, tricky at times, but well worth it.”

“The whole trip was very nicely organized. Upendra was of big help when we needed some advice for the preparations before the trip, and he made sure that all eventual problems were solved. Our guide Purna was also amazing, always in a good mood, joking but on the other hand caring for our well-being during the whole trip. We felt very safe going with him to higher altitudes, and enjoyed every moment of the whole experience!
Although the evenings and nights in January were sometimes unbearably cold, I would redo the trip during this season, because we could enjoy the amazing views without being bothered by millions of other trekkers as it is the case in the main season.”

He encouraged others on the trip who struggled at times and motivated us both to keep going with a smile everyday. Ganga organised the tour very well.

“Due to the different physical fitness, some of our friends did Chola Pass Trek and few us did Everest Base Camp Trek and we arranged a meeting in Everest Base Camp all together. The plan was prepared by the company and went great. We returned all together to Kathmandu after meeting in EBC, great trekking, almost died, crying, heavy breathing, tired.”

Everest Base Camp Trek - Overview

The trek to Everest Base Camp (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 8,848 m (29,029 ft), but you will be following in the footsteps of great mountaineers like Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.

The trek 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 trek include Lhotse (8501 m), Makalu (8463 m), Cho Oyu (8153 m), and Ama Dablam (6856 m).

Everest Base Camp Trek - Itinerary

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

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

Alternate Routes:

  • Option 1: Although the Everest Base Camp 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.
  • 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.
