The Everest Base Camp trek in the Khumbu region of Nepal offers a great adventure experience, taking you to the base camp (5,364m/17,598ft) of the highest peak, Mt. Everest, in the world. This trek will also provide sights of other majestic peaks such as Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Makalu and Mt. Ama Dablam.

We don’t stop here; we hike up to Kala Patthar (5,550m/18,204ft) for the best view of Mt. Everest. Other major highlights of this trek includes stunning landscape, beautiful Rhododendron forest, glacial moraines, foothills, rare species of birds and animals, sunrise from Kala Patthar, the legendary Sherpas; their beautiful settlement, culture, tradition, festivals, dances, monasteries and not to be missed, their warm hospitality.

The Everest Base Camp trek itinerary lasts 12 days allowing you to fully enjoy every aspect of this trek. September to December and March to May is considered the best time to plan the Everest Base Camp Trek.

This trek takes you to the altitude of 5,550m and some days require a 6-8 hour walking; therefore, any physically fit person having sound health can opt for this adventure. You will be guided by some of the industry's best experts; a qualified and experienced managerial team, guides and Sherpas.

The journey begins with a scenic flight to Lukla from Kathmandu and from Lukla the actual walk begins. The trail passes through culturally rich villages like Phakding, Khumgjung and Namche Bazaar, Sagarmatha National Park, suspension bridges, Buddhist monasteries (Tengboche at the highest altitude), Rhododendron forest, glacier (Ngozumpa glacier) and finally the base camp of Mt. Everest and Kala Patthar.

Due to obstructive weather conditions (even during the best trekking seasons), sometimes they may announce sudden changes regarding the previously provided domestic flight schedule to and from Lukla. The plane many be delayed for few hours or even few following days. This entirely depends upon the weather condition. Therefore, we kindly request all the trekkers to add a few extra days to your plan.

Furthermore, trekker's safety is always the top priority in any trek. Therefore, the team leader on duty is given every authority to make changes in the itinerary provided in case of unexpected weather change, the unsuitable health condition of a group member or an unforeseen natural disaster. If needed, team leader might also cancel any part of the itinerary. Hence, in such a situation we request you to co-operate with our team leader and remain flexible.

“I have found Tika, who manages Adventure Mountain Explore Pvt Ltd, to be a thorough professional and a champion in customer service. I chose AME treks as it was recommended by many on the internet. I had extensive email and social media communication with Tika, as i had many doubts about the trip, and he had been very responsive with quick and detailed answers to all my questions. One of the most important things to consider when we choose a trekking company to do the Everest Base Camp trek is the ability to handle unplanned events. For e.g. managing the delay in Lukla flights and emergency evacuation due to altitude sickness - we encountered both the situations and AME treks could arrange helicopters in both the cases for us - both covered by insurance. The company was also able to make apt changes in the tour programme to accommodate the delays and ensured we reached the destination and back on time. The guide, Shishir, was very knowledgeable and friendly and the porters, especially Indra, was really good and helpful. I would recommend AME treks to anybody who are planning a trekking trip in Nepal.”
Cancellation Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.
