The hardest trek Reviewed Tour: Everest Base Camp Trek
Antony Williams From UK At
5 - Excellent
“The trek was truly a tough one, the walking was easy but walking and breathing was almost impossible. The weather was poor plenty of rain, mist and low clouds. With snow and freezing rain at Gorak Shep on the way down.
Would I do it again almost certainly not.
But we did catch a glimpse of Everest.
Did we expect these conditions, yes.
Did I book the trip even though it was a poor chance of seeing Everest, yes.
Am I even a little disappointed, no the trek was fantastic and I am so happy that I can say I walked to base camp and saw Everest with my own eyes.
This is one major item ticked off my bucket list. If it was easy it wouldn't hsve been on my list in the first place.
I teach so monsoon is the only time I could have gone.”

The scenery up there is breath-taking and the fresh air inhaled clear up the minds and gives the tired body a relief. My group and I enjoyed the trip very much. It is a good try to hike this mountain. I highly recommeded it and would like to go back again whenever I have the chance.”

Advice - bring with you a roll of paper towels. It is indispensable when you will have a cold or need to go to bathroom. You can't buy it there.”
Well-organized trek. Good company, some reservations about the guide Reviewed Tour: Everest Base Camp & Kala Patthar Trek
Anonymous From USA At
4 - Very Good
“Well-organized trek, with good logistical support from the company and the guide, and of course, spectacular scenery. Food and lodging met expectations (though definitely basic). We were happy we did not get sick from the food (we avoided meat). Nepal Eco deserves credit for selecting tea houses with high standards of food hygiene.

We had two reservations about the trip, mostly related to the guide (Ramesh Jirel):

1. We have been on treks before with guides that were knowledgeable about the history and culture of the region and had strong command of English. Unfortunate, our guide on this trip mostly pointed to mountains and gave their names. He provided very little commentary on the history or culture of the area, and when we asked him questions, we mostly received short replies. We often had trouble understanding his English, and had to ask him to repeat himself rather frequently.

2. At the end of our trek, we gave the guide and porter their tips separately to ensure that each person received the intended amount, but we noticed that our guide made a point of being present when we gave our tip to the porter, and left with the porter after we gave him his envelope. Then Ramesh returned to us after leaving the porter, and said that he thought we didn't give enough of a tip, because the porter "looked sad", and then suggested a tip that amounted to almost the entire cost of hiring the porter for 11 days. We felt of course very uncomfortable and bothered, because we had taken time and care to make sure that we were tipping well (and we did, even by US standards). We replied that we had researched tipping guidelines and gave on the high end of what was suggested. He then tried to ingratiate himself with us afterwards, probably in an effort to get a higher tip for himself; we think it's possible that the guide took part of the porter's tip in exchange for having chosen him to be the porter for our trek, which bothered us (why else would he walk out with the porter, and then come back?). This unfortunately left us with a sour taste in our mouths. We later read similar stories online about this happening to other trekkers in the Himalayas; apparently the trekking industry has become a very good source of income for guides (the average Nepali earns about $2,500 USD/year) and somewhat of a "dog eat dog" business, with guides sometimes demanding extraordinarily large tips, a practice that is very out of line with Nepalese culture. Strangely enough, we had no issues whatsoever when we gave our guide his tip at the end of our trek, and he seemed very grateful and happy. We think that this is not the norm for the agency through which we booked or for the Nepalese people, and that we just happen to have had a negative experience in this area.

We understand that tipping is an important part of a guide and porter's income. But the fact of the matter is that gratuities are voluntary and should be accepted with gratitude and appreciation, whatever the amount. Under no circumstances should a guide comment on the amount of the tip in such a way as to make the client feel uncomfortable or to pressure them into giving more. This kind of behaviour is unprofessional and significantly detracts from what would otherwise be an experience of a lifetime. We hope that Nepal Eco will take measures to educate all their guides on the standards of acceptable professional behaviour.”
The tour operator responded on :
“Hello David,
Thank you so much for your time and words on this platform. Your successful trekking to to EBC is our major achievement and we are happy for you. Your recommendations for our company is great and informative. Let me answer your reservations.

1. Nepal Eco Adventure has 50+ guides and among them all of the guides are knowledgeable, that is what we believe. Ramesh himself has be doing this trekking for more than 15 years and that is quite of experience. But sometimes clients expectation and guides delivery doesn't match. If this is not the case; we will try to enhance his and rest of the guides delivering skill in the future. We are soon having Nepal Eco Guide team enhancement close camp. Thank you for pointing out his english but you also need to accept that guides has knowledge about the region as they have been working in the same field for year, thing is you need to ask guides to know what you want to know. Different clients has different interest and generally clients ask about the matter and our guides share their knowledge. We will be serious about this stuff as we majorly concern about clients sanctification.

2. We are really sorry for the guides mistake asking more for porters tip. He should not been asking that is for sure. Guides earns more than general public. Someone would not relies on internet research for tipping a guide and porter for 11 days.Most of the advice online are outdated. To be honest with you amount you tipped is not as US standard.Tipping can be confusing and varies. But a general rule for waiters is to tip 10 to 20 percent of the pre-tax bill, and $2 to $5 per night for housekeeping service in the states. Tip is never asked more or less, but it is Ramesh's fault asking more. He will be cared for this mistake as per our company norm.

#. We team Nepal Eco Adventure is concern about your complain and we will take serious action. See you again for the excellent service which we have been providing for decades.

Kind Regards,
Team Nepal Eco Adventure.”

“Regardless of this time of the year being in the monsoon,upendra assured me that the trek is possible and i might have really really bad luck if i didnt see the mountains. True enough,the skies cleared up one fine day at gorakshep and we got to see all the big boys. Upendra was very prompt in replying his messages before,during and after the trek. Apart from his company being the best in terms of reviews,himalayan leisure was also one of the cheapest if not the cheapest ebc trek tour. Our guide lal gurung was a also a fantastic guide. Always cheerful and giving off lively vibes in those days of difficult rainfall. We asked him a lot of questions during the trek and he elaborated wonderfully. Would definitely love to be back in nepal for island peak and now i know the company to come back to.”

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

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.
