Everest Base Camp trek Reviews

A lifetime Experience !!! Reviewed Tour: Everest Base Camp Trek
Ruben From Holland At
5 - Excellent
“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”

We got luck to have good weather and of course very informative guides added up the journey to know the Sherpa culture and traditions. We were all good taken care. All trekking crew were on time when we needed. Thanks to Himalayan scenery treks for all the best provision.”

“On the 30th of May 2019 we have conquered Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar Peak thanks to Magical Nepal! Let me run you through the process in case you're also considering to make your dreams come true.

Booking:
The whole process of booking was smooth and speedy. From the moment of our first inquiry to having everything reserved took only 2 weeks and it could have been much shorter if we made our mind earlier - we spoke to a guy who booked everything one day before departure from US. Magical Nepal (Pradeep and Saugat) answered all of our questions within a few hours despite the time zone differences. We knew our schedule and got all the details for preparation well ahead so we could go to Nepal confident everything is ready.

Guide:
Dil - our guide - is doing this job for several years and knows the route inside out. Also, speaks as good English as me so there were no communication issues at any point - spoken or written.
Apart from being well prepared he was also very accommodating - even when we had special requirements (for example, I don't eat onion and the cuisine in this part of the world adds a lot of onion - nevertheless, Dil made sure I'm never served anything with onion in it). On the days when we didn't feel like trekking fast, he was ok with the speed and didn't make us feel like we're slow.
On top of this all, he is a good company to talk to and knew when to let us walk in silence.
The best part? Dil is a good photographer and took many photos for us! Most of the ones in this review were taken by him.

Everest Base Camp Trek:
We took 12 days of trekking to complete it and while it is enough time, we do recommend to take it a bit slower if you get a headache (mild altitude sickness) at any point. If possible, I recommend allowing 2 days more.
We stayed at decent tea houses with food much better than expected - in fact food should be one of the biggest highlights of the trip.

My feelings about the Everest Base Camp trek organized by Magical Nepal:
When we reached the top I was speechless - I never thought I would make it! It was an experience of a lifetime and I hope I'll venture to Nepal again to do another trek with Magical Nepal. It's probably the best company out there and I strongly recommend choosing them.”

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.
