The Everest Base Camp trek is world-class trekking journey into the high Himalayas that takes you to the base camp of the highest peak on Earth, Mount Everest, the nearest place where a trekker can reach without any technical climb.

Everest Base Camp gives unparalleled Himalayan views of some of the highest mountains on earth, a sight that people cannot find anywhere else in the world. Everest Base Camp itself is used for Everest climbers who are on their way up to attempt to summit Mt Everest. Since Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay made the first successful summit of Everest in 1953 A.D.

We begin our Everest Base Camp trek with an exciting short morning flight to the starting point of our trek, Lukla, a small village in the Everest region. From here, our trekking commences, trekking up to Phakding and Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Khumbu Region. We take a day's rest in Namche to be able to acclimatize better to the altitude, when we trek higher up in the following days.

Our EBC trek also has a stopover at the magnificent Tengboche monastery, with unforgettable views of the peaks surrounding it. Then, we continue further to the north through one of the original Sherpa settlements in this region, Dingboche. After resting another extra day in Dingboche for further acclimatization, we continue our trek. The landscapes become more remote and desolate as we make our way closer and closer to the highest summit on earth. Finally, we are rewarded for our efforts as we achieve the ultimate goal to reach Everest Base Camp. We enjoy this extraordinary atmosphere and also do a hike up the small trekking peak of Kala Patthar at approx. 5600 meters. Finally, we start to trek back towards Lukla, from where we again board a flight back to Kathmandu.

Please see the itinerary for further details. We look forward to taking you on an amazing trek of a lifetime.

Amazing trip!
Hannah Brown From Britain At

“What an amazing trek this was and one I will never, ever forget.
The Outfitter team were brilliant and organised everything incredibly well. All lodges were booked prior to arriving at each village which was perfect after a long day trekking. The views were exceptional and the weather, very fortunately, was fabulous. Obviously Outfitter cannot control this but I do recommend going late March/early April. We also went just before the UK Easter holidays which meant the trail was much, much quieter - as we were descending on the 5th April, it was clearly much busier due to the influx of people from the UK/Europe.
Our guide, Sudip, was brilliant. He played cards with us every evening, educated us during our trek and always ensured we were okay throughout the trip. He was simply superb and very funny too! We would also like to credit Subas for being a fabulous porter - I definitely recommend paying out for a porter as when reaching higher altitude, your bag can seem a heck of a lot heavier than when in Lukla!!
Although Outfitter plan out an itinerary, they allow a lot of freedom and flexibility so that it suits you. We were quite quick walkers and were happy to push on to a village an hour or so further (when descending); Sudip and the Outfitter team allowed for this which made us feel in control of our trip. I know the same would be possible should you be struggling with altitude, injuries etc. and you wish to slow down a little. Of course, when ascending it is really important to try and stick to what Outfitter suggest as to minimise altitude sickness!

Overall, we had the most amazing trip and are very grateful for the Outfitter team. I would definitely recommend the company though it would have been even better if a hot drink was included with lunch and dinner”
Excellent Everest Base Camp Trek - Nov 2016
Alessandra Basile From Spain At
5 - Excellent
“I´ve just returned from Everest Base Camp and this has been the trek of a lifetime and a huge achievement. It was such an adventure!! Having had the support and professionalism from Outfitter Nepal´s team was the key to the success of this trek. From the very beginning, through the exchange of several emails with Raj (Executive Director) to book this trek, to the very end when we had dinner together to celebrate, the quality of the services provided by this company exceeded my expectations. Trekking at high altitude entails several risks, but the trek guide and porter were constantly checking how I was feeling as we climbed higher up in the mountains. The team booked rooms at comfortable teahouses for me and we could choose breakfast, lunch and dinner options from a menu at the places we stopped to eat during the trek and at the teahouses. Food was surprisingly good during this trek. The professionalism of the team guaranteed my journey to be pleasant and safe. Having had the support of a knowledgeable trekking team was a key factor for the success of this trek. I highly recommend Outfitter Nepal and I´m looking forward to going back to Nepal and doing other treks in the Himalayas with them!!

Ha sido una experiencia alucinante y un gran reto para mí!! Haber tenido el apoyo y profesionalismo del equipo de Outfitter Nepal ha sido clave para el éxito de esta expedición. Comenzando por todos los emails que he recibido de Raj (Director Ejecutivo) para aclarar mis dudas, hasta el momento final cuando cenamos para celebrar el reto cumplido. La calidad de los servicios que Outfitter Nepal me ha proporcionado superó mis expectativas. El senderismo de alta montaña tiene muchos riesgos, pero el guía de montaña y el sherpa estaban atentos verificando mi condición conforme íbamos ascendiendo. El equipo reservó habitaciones para mí en alojamientos sencillos pero buenos y pudimos escoger las opciones de desayuno, comida, y cena durante el camino y también en los alojamientos. La comida estuvo sorprendentemente rica en todo momento. El profesionalismo del equipo de Outfitter Nepal me ha garantizado hacer una ruta de forma confortable y segura. Haber tenido el apoyo de un equipo de expertos fue clave para el éxito de la expedición. De seguro recomiendo Outfitter Nepal al 100% y estoy ya ilusionada por regresar a Nepal pronto y hacer otras expediciones en el Himalaya con esta empresa!!”
