Everest Base Camp Trek is designed for the thrill seekers who wish to experience the ultimate adventure in the Himalaya of Nepal. Starting from Lukla, the trek passes through Sherpa villages, Sagarmatha National Park and Tengboche Monastery, the highest monastery in the world, and finally conceding at Kala Patthar (5,550 m/18,204 ft). You can enjoy the majestic view of Mount Everest and many other renowned peaks of Khumbu valley from the close proximity of Kala Patthar.

The trek is designed to offer a unique outlook on the Everest region and its greater inhabitants, Sherpas. This 12 days trek culminates into an adventure travel along with sightseeing and cultural immersion.
Day 1 Fly to Lukla & trek to Phakding 3 to 4 hours Mountain Lodge

Early morning we fly from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla has a tiny airstrip and the scenic flight duration is just above 40 minutes. Upon landing, while the guides and porters will divide the baggage and you can have a good look around and take picture. Depending upon when we land at Lukla, we might even have our lunch there. From Lukla, we walk to Phakding village. The walk is fairly easy and we will stay overnight in Phakding. We can spend our evening strolling around the village.

Day 2 Phakding to Namche Bazaar 5 to 6 hours Mountain Lodge

Our day's hike will start after we have our breakfast. We start by walking along the banks of Dudh Koshi River; we will have to cross this river twice today. We will then arrive at a small village called Monjo. Monjo is the gateway to Sagarmatha National Park. After entering the National Park, we descend down to Bhote Koshi River upon which we arrive at Jorsalle village. We walk further from there heading off to Namche Bazaar, a prosperous trade hub in the lap of the Himalayas which is also the capital of Khumbu region. We will stay overnight at a hotel in Namche Bazaar.

Day 3 Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar Mountain Lodge

After already having ascended an altitude of 3,440 m (11,253ft), we will use today for acclimatization. It is very important that our body is prepared for further ascending. You have the day at your disposal and can choose to do what you wish with it. You can walk up to the Everest View Point Hotel and enjoy the view it offers. You can also choose to just walk around Namche Bazaar and observe the local proceedings and lifestyle. If it is Saturday today, there will be local traditional Saturday Market and it will be a wonderful experience visiting the marketplace. There is a Sherpa Museum in Namche which would be the place to visit if you are into Sherpa culture and history of mountaineering

Day 4 Namche to Tyangboche 5 to 6 hours Mountain Lodge

Today after breakfast we start our trek with pleasant walk through the forest with magnificent view of mountains. The great view of the mighty peaks like Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kwangde peak is a constant throughout the day. Today's trail ascends through the forested on its way to Tyangboche. The first thing that could draw your attention after reaching Tyangboche could be its big monastery. Tyangboche has large campsite, tea houses and lodges overseeing Mt. Ama Dablam. We will spend the night at a hotel in Tyangboche.

Day 5 Tyangboche to Dingboche 5 to 6 hours Mountain Lodge

The day consists of a lot of descending until we arrive at Deboche. The trails ascend from there through rhododendron forest. We then cross a valley and through the plains to reach Dingboche. It is a relatively easy day in terms of walking

Day 6 Acclimatization day at Dingboche Mountain Lodge

It is acclimatization day again. We require acclimatizing to ascend further altitude. You can take complete rest all day. If you so wish and are physically in excellent condition, you can also take some couple of hours time to hike up to Chhukung (4,730m). Chhukung is a small hill station overlooking many mountains and glaciers. The main target of the day would be to prepare you physically for the rest of the trek.

Day 7 Dingboche to Lobuche 5 to 6 hours Mountain Lode

There is a lot of vertical gain today even though the trail length does not clock more than 4.5 miles in itself. We walk through the alpine meadows and yak pastures to cross the Khumbu Glacier. The end of the moraine of the glacier has a specifically steep and presents a challenge. We then continue along the rugged route to reach Lobuche where we will stay for the night. Lobuche is situated beneath the Lhotse Ridge.

Day 8 Trek to Gorak Shep & hike to Everest Base Camp 5 to 6 hours Mountain Lodge

For those of you who are doing the Everest Base Camp Trek for the first time, the day starts with a mixture and anxiety. Today you will be hiking up to the Everest Base Camp. The day will be the most challenging day of the trek and at the same time the most fulfilling as well. The base camp is situated at an altitude of above 5,000m (16,000ft).

We start off by hiking to Gorak Shep first. It is a small village sitting atop a small frozen lake buried under sand. We will have our lunch thee and hike further following the trails of the Khumbu Glacier. On the way you will catch the glimpse of an intimidating black rock the world knows by the name of Mt. Everest. The way will lead us to the Everest Base Camp. Have you ever heard or read that Mt. Everest cannot be seen from the Everest Base Camp? You will find the answer yourself. We will spend quality time exploring the base camp and surrounding areas and return to Gorak Shep to spend the night.

Day 9 Early hike to Kala Patthar & trek back to Pheriche 6 to 7 hours Mountain Lodge

Our first destination for the day will be Kala Patthar. We will start especially early and your guide will arrange everything for the early departure. The reason behind leaving early is to reach Kala Patthar before sunrise. Kala Patthar provides the most wonderful sight of sunrise over Mt. Everest and other Himalayan peaks such as Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Pumori. You would not want to miss that. It will take a couple of hours to reach Kala Patthar from Gorak Shep. We will take our time enjoying what Kala Patthar has to offer before heading down to Gorak Shep and then to Pheriche to stay overnight there.

Day 10 Pheriche to Kyanjuma 5 to 6 hours Mountain Lodge

From now onwards, it's all about descending. So our pace will be faster than earlier and the walks will be easier. Heading down now, the going is easier and the pace much faster than so far has been. The beauty of the Himalayan terrain will never leave us along the way. We will spend the night in Kyanjuma.

Day 11 Khumjung to Monju 6 to 7 hours Mountain Lodge

The highlight of the day would be our visit to the Hillary School, established by Sir Edmund Hillary. We will also visit a hospital run by charity. We will walk the downhill trails to reach Monju and stay overnight there.

Day 12 Monju to Lukla 4 to 5 hours Mountain Lodge

You can walk at your own pace today as we head back to Lukla from where we started our adventure. There will be mixed feeling today. You will feel delighted that you have successfully completed the trek and experience the thrills and beauty of it. At the same time you will also be disappointed that you have to leave the beauty and the adventure behind. But, there is always next time and there is always next adventure waiting for you. The evening and the night will be marked with celebrations that will include a lot of singing and dancing. We will spend the night at a hotel in Lukla.

I will be traveling back home soon and with all good memories from this beautiful country Nepal.”

“On the positive side the company had provided a good guide and a great porter. They were very helpful and responsive to our questions and flexible with our demands. They seem to have as a company a lot of experience and resources. They really seem to be one of the largest in Nepal. Nepal Vision is more an Umbrella Brand for several smaller Trekking Agencies. The negative side of our experience revolved mostly around the accommodations. It was advertised that we will be provided the "best accommodations available", our expectations were to have mid range to good places to stay, however the places were in many cases much worse than mid range places in the same towns. The way companies work is that they have long term relationships with a specific tea house and you can only stay and eat in that specific tea house (the guide is only allowed to take you there, for sleeping, breaks, etc). Basically you get the best available rooms but in the tea houses they have a relationship with. If the tea house is terrible, bad luck you are stuck there. This might make some sense in getting better service, but they really need to reevaluate more often the tea houses they use. In the case of Nepal Vision in many little towns the accommodations while once upon a time might have been good nowadays are really below standard, specially in Phakding, Pangboche and Namche (the Nest at Namche has a really bad problem with toxic Fungus in all rooms with showers). The other issue with had a problem with was the difference between what was advertised and what it was provided. For example, is advertised that water will be provided the small detail is that the water they will provide is not bottled water is just water from the local stream or well with iodine pills. Another example is that in the advertisement is mentioned that tea, coffee, etc are included but the detail is that only 1 cup per meal is allowed. This led to the awkward situation of the guide policing how many cups we have per day. So I would recommend to set expectations right, ask for a detail clarification of what is and what isn´t included before you book. I really doubt that other agencies provide bottled water to their customers (or if the bottled water is actually bottled water and not just river water with a fake seal) or if they will not count your cups, but at least you know from the beginning what to expect.”

“We had a terrific experience. Our guides were wonderful, we stayed at the same tea houses that the expensive US companies stayed at (same food same everything. ). Would recommend Nepal Vision Treks to anyone trekking to base camp”
