“Everest is such a wonderful place to be in. Trekking in this region was a dream to me and I turned that dream into reality. Walking throught the villages and small sherpa settlements made me feel so blessed. With himalayan scenery, the trekk was much smother. The sherpa was so friendly and welcomed me by all their hearts. The guide also helped me alot to achieve the dream of being in the foot hill of the mighty everest. This trek has been a experience that will remain for my life.”

“The time for travelling and trekking here in Nepal has always been great experience, this year me and my wife had this Everest Base Camp Trek here in Nepal. I found this trek one of the best way to experience the great trail toward the highest peak in the world "Mount Everest" with scenic views of panorama of different himalays and Nature along each and every trail of this trek. Finding good trek is difficult but finding a great company to organize the trek is more difficult than that but we were very lucky to find the Mount Adventure Holidays as it made our trekking experience more reliable,smooth and fresh with great service and care along every trail. Our Guide Nuru was very experienced and never disappointed on our demands and expectations from him.”

“We successfully completed EBC Trek last October with the help of Ganesh and His Team.
The thrilling flight to Lukla was an adventure in itself.
The trek was challenging but rewarding in every way.
Standing on the lap of Everest was the most exciting and unique experience we've ever had.

Everything was well organized and the service could not have been better.
We can't ask for more but only to thank them for our successful trip.
Thanks to our Guide, Porters, and the entire team for helping us complete this trek.
Our guide Ram was very professional, well informed and explained to us very well.
Accommodation and meals were very appreciated.

We carried wonderful memories flying back home and still miss the mountains!!!
See you on our more future trips to Nepal. I would definitely recommend this once in a lifetime trek to Everyone. Thank you! Ganesh and his team for organizing this 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 Everest Base Camp 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.
