Start the trip by boarding a 30-minute flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Follow the route that has been used by countless trekkers in the last few decades and journey to the base camp via Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche and Lobuche. Spend a night in Gorakshep, one of the highest year-round human habitations in the world, before reaching the base camp.
Enjoy stunning views of the magnificent Himalayas from Kala Patthar before starting your journey downhill, along the same route. Catch a return flight to Kathmandu upon reaching Lukla. This short base camp trekking package has been designed for those who want to make the most of their limited stay in Nepal. With no rest and acclimatization in between, we do not recommend this to those who are planning to travel to places over 4,000m for the first time. However, this trek should not be a problem for those who are physically active.
I went on this trek solo but Sudip made sure I had someone to chat to on the walk, as well as my own time at the tea houses with other trekkers on the path. He introduced me to parts of his culture and made me feel comfortable the entire trek - despite the cold temperatures.
I have already recommended Sudip and Nepal Eco Adventure to colleagues of mine from work and I HIGHLY recommend that you book with them now. Not only is the trek reasonably priced against the competition - you can be sure that Sudip and Nepal Eco will go above and beyond what they promise to ensure you have an amazing, tailored trekking experience.”
A knowledgeable and experienced guide can make your journey safe, and also have passion for his job, your journey will become more enjoyable. My guide Sudip Tamang is a person like that, he always stand for the side of his client, and concern what we need. My husband and I are late 50s, 12 days trekking seen to be not easy for us. My dear guide Sudip always encouraged us, and said that he will try all best for made our dream come true. He took care us not only physically and also mentally need. Really we finished our trekking without any problems. My porter Arjun is a helpful man. Sometimes he chooses to give up his rest time to take care of us.”

What is the weather going to be like when I travel to Everest Base Camp?
The weather in Nepal varies by season. For example, November to January is the dry season with sunny days, clear skies and usually no rain. However, on Everest Base Camp, the temperatures at this altitude will be cold, particularly at night. February to May and September to October is the most popular time to travel to EBC, with usually fairly dry and stable weather, although there may be the occasional shower. June to August is monsoon season in Nepal, but once you pass 3,000 meters altitude there is less and less rain. Check out our guide on the best time to visit Nepal for more on specific monthly climate and seasons.
How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?
In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.
