Everest Base Camp Trek gives you an opportunity to visit unique high-altitude destinations that only a handful of the world’s population ever gets to experience. Following the footsteps of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, trek along the foothills of Himalayan mountains including the world’s highest mountain; Mount Everest including Mount Lothse, Mount Cho oyu, etc. En route, experience authentic Sherpa hospitality and culture, Buddhist spiritualism and amazing mountain scenery. Stand beneath the massive mountain shadows and feel humbled.

The trek begins from Lukla, a Sherpa settlement known as the ‘Gateway to Everest’. Following your experienced guide, trek through the valley of Dudh Koshi to Namche Bazar. Namche, a bustling trading hub filled with upscale mountain lodges, bakeries, shops and internet cafes, resembles an amphitheater carved on the sides of the mountains. Spend a day here acclimatizing before heading to Tengboche when you can visit the Tengboche Monastery. The trek then continues to Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorak Shep, and finally to Everest Base Camp.

A good hike to Kala Patthar and Nangkhartshang Peak will test your endurance level but reward you with close-up views of Mount Everest, Mount Pumori, Thamserku, Imja Tse/Island Peak and several other majestic mountains. The highlight of the trek is of course to visit Everest Base Camp, surrounded by tumbling glaciers and giant walls of snow and ice. EBC is the first campsite for climbers trying to scale Mount Everest.

Please see the itinerary for a detailed day-by-day overview.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • 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.

     

  • 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 Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • 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.
