“This was a trek of a lifetime. From getting picked up from the airport to flying out of Lukla, the entire trip ran smoothly under the friendly and well informed leadership of Lok. Through a challenge, our guide's local knowledge and helpfulness created an experience that we not only enjoyed but will treasure for as long as I'm alive. We enjoyed spectacular views while indulging in traditional Nepalese culture which culminated in a perfect view of the sunset over Everest on the 9th day. This experience has left me begging to go back, and I wouldn't want to do it with anyone other than Icicles.”

“This was truly the adventure of a lifetime. Traveling with Ace was a fantastic experience! Booked the 14 day Annapurna Base Camp trek and spent in good hands with guide Resham and porters, Dhan and Gunjan. Resham was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and attentive. He and our porters made sure we were well taken care of and comfortable at all times. The days were challenging, but balanced and rewarding. Each day had something unique and beautiful to offer without being overwhelming or exhausting. Trekking through the small villages, forests, and mountains with our small group was ideal. Highly recommended it to anyone interested in Nepal and the Himalayas.”

“The trek as a whole was easy to book and communication with the organisations head Mr Khum by email was very appreciated and timely throughout. Mr Khum was more than helpful when it came to orangising transport and catering for the changing schedule of our trail, flights and transport. We had 3 guides. 1 was really good, called Prabin Tamang, who took us to Annapurna. We wish we had Pabin for the entire 21 days and recommend for anyone looking to use this organisation that they ask for him, he will go above and beyond to make the experience everything you could hope for. As for the other guides we found them to be average in comparison to Prabin in the sense that they were cheap with our pre paid daily allowance, unclear on the conditions of that daily allowance and whilst they may have known about the history of the trails and region they couldn’t convey it in English. We didn’t use a porter and found the trek fine in terms of weight but recommend that you don’t try to condense the trail for self imposed time constraints and instead take the time to acclimatise and enjoy the beauty and culture of each region. We would happily use this organisation again and recommend using it to anyone who is looking at this adventure, especially with the support of Mr Khum and Prabin Tamang.”

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 8,848m (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 (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 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 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.

How our Travel Expert Service Works
  • 1 We connect you with a hand-picked and qualified travel expert who can match your trip requirements. The advantage of working directly through a travel expert is that you get the best and unfiltered advice from the very beginning.
  • 2 The travel expert will help you with creating and customising a trip for you. If you have any questions or concerns relating to the trip, the travel expert will also be able to help you with those.
  • 3 When you feel that your trip is exactly per your wish, you'll be able to book the entire trip here on Bookmundi.
The Advantages of Bookmundi
  • Selected Local Travel Experts All our local travel experts have been chosen based on rigorous selection criteria. In fact, we reject 98 out of 100 local travel agencies, and thereby giving you access to the top 1-2% local travel experts.
  • Secure Online Payment Each and every trip is required to go through Bookmundi's secure payment platform, powered by Stripe and supported by SSL, so all payments are carried out in 100% secure manners. We are furthermore member of the Danish Travel Fund, which guarantees the money you pay on Bookmundi.
  • Trip Replacement or 100% Reimbursement Bookmundi has hand-picked your local expert, and our role, as your trusted third party, is to make sure that your entire experience runs as seamless and securely as possible. We therefore guarantee to you that in the unlikely event where a local travel expert cancels your trip after your deposit has been paid, we commit to replacing these services with one of our other local agencies so that your trip can go ahead as planned, or failing to replace it, we will give you a 100% reimbursement.
