Are you searching for a pristine trekking route in the famous Everest region? If yes, then we have the perfect trip for you. Join us on this eleven-day, private, guided trek to the base camp of Mount Ama Dablam and enjoy traveling through the route less taken.

This trip starts in Kathmandu where we will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the airport for a short flight to Lukla (2,827 meters). Your journey from Lukla initially follows the route to Everest Base Camp as it travels to Namche Bazaar via Phakding.

Spend a day in Namche, acclimatising and preparing for the journey. Then head for Pangboche via Phortse. Travel through lush forests, past mani walls and via quaint Sherpa villages where time seems to have come to a halt. Take the trail that goes from Pangboche to Ama Dablam Base Camp. See Mount Ama Dablam as well as Lhotse, Nuptse and Pumori mountains in close proximity as well as Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world, that is positioned between Mount Lhotse and Mount Nuptse.

Start your journey downhill along the same trail and catch your flight to Kathmandu from Lukla. Your trip comes to an end on arrival in the capital city.

Bianca's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
“Trekking to Everest Base Camp has been one of the most amazing, emotional and satisfying experiences in my life. Physical and mental efforts are rewarded by the breathtaking sceneries along the way. The landscape, the culture and the people make this experience unforgettable and the feeling when I arrived to EBC is something I will never forget.”

Lauren's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
“This trek was amazing! It is listed as easy, and it is in terms of a relatively untrained person can definitely complete the trek, however for that person it is pretty difficult. Definitely worth it, and a huge feeling of accomplishment at the end! It was a great starting out trek rather than going all the way to base camp, but still with magnificent views of Everest and surrounding mountains. The tea lodges and accomodation along the way were comfortable, nice people and good food. I travelled in winter and although mronibgs and evenings were cold, walking during the day was warm and the lodges were cozy. Winter also made for completely clear skies and beautiful weather.”

“After doing this (Everest View Trek) fantastic short (but strenuous-may be because I did not train sufficiently) trek I can only say that it was an amazing experience.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.


  • 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.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
