  • Follow the epic trail through the alpine region
  • Pass through Sherpa valleys and learn about Buddhist culture
  • See the alpine flora and fauna
  • Enjoy the magnificent views of the Himalayas
Experience a trek to Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world at 8848 m above sea level. This trek follows in the footsteps of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary, and you will pass numerous Sherpa valleys before you reach Everest Base Camp. The trail winds its way through Sagarmatha National Park, home to several 8000 meter peaks.

The tiny airstrip of Lukla is the gateway of the trek to Everest base camp. Pass outstanding Sherpa valleys and the bustling towns of Sherpa people, Namche Bazaar and Khumjung. The trail is dominated by the rhododendron forest and some of the Himalayan fauna can be seen. The monasteries, chhortens and mani walls are common scenery along the trail of Everest base camp. The glacial moraine trail at the upper part makes the journey an adventurous one. Enjoy the views of the magnificent Himalayas.

Trekking enthusiasts find the alpine setting blissful and spiritually solacing. Acclimatization comes as a part of the Everest base camp trek to avoid altitude sickness.

The best seasons for the Everest base camp trek are March to May and September to November.

Incredible trek to Everest Base Camp
Ollie At
5 - Excellent
“The Everest Base Camp trek is an incredible way to spend 9-14 days experiencing the delights of the Himalaya mountain region, with the ultimate reward of reaching the base camp of the world's most notorious mountain climb. I couldn't recommend Mount Adventure Holidays & Pasang who runs the company any more highly. He took such great care of me as a solo traveller, answering all my questions very promptly before the trip, and organising every last detail from the moment I touched down in Kathmandu, to when I left. Nepal can be a slightly chaotic place to travel around, and for me I had flights to and from Lukla cancelled (due to a "broken plane"), however with Pasang around, he made all the necessary arrangements such that I still made it to do the trek in the time I had! He ensured I had all the necessary trekking gear, lending me a few bits I didn't have. At the end of the trek he gave me a quick tour of Kathmandu and even invited me into his home. As a side point, Pasang uses guides based in Lukla or the surrounding region, so unlike other companies the price of flying a guide from Kathmandu to Lukla isn't included in the price. He is absolutely priceless, so if you are thinking of doing any trekking in Nepal, use him!”

“I am very much satisfied and happy to be part of one of the great trek in the world under the foot hill of world tallest mountain "Mount Everest". I had great experience and time here in Everest and i would have regret if i have missed this trip and i want to show my gratitude and thanks to Mount Adventure Holidays and team because without them it would not have been this successful and they were kind and cheerful all the time.

So thank you very much and see you guys next year for next trek in Nepal.”

“Fantastic experience. My tour was well organized, knowledgeable guide, full service with airport pick up and drop off. The food and accommodation during the trek were as good as possible. My guide Pasang was an enthusiastic and happy person with a great sense of humor and paid attention to details during the trip. He also always made sure I was doing well and knew exactly how to schedule our days in order to maximize my experience.”

We take an early morning flight to Lukla which is where all Everest treks begin. We meet the rest of our team in Lukla and start trekking from there. We walk on a trail that gradually descends to Cheplung village from where we get a glimpse of Mt. Khumbila, a sacred mountain which has never been climbed. From here, we gradually descend until Phakding.

Overnight in Phakding.

Our trail passes through a pine forest and we continue our walk on the trail that goes north up the Benkar valley. We cross Dudh Koshi River and pass Chumoa and Monjo villages before reaching the entrance of the Everest National Park.

Then after crossing a suspension bridge, we pass Jorsale village and walk alongside of the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers. We ascend on a steep trail and reach Namche Bazaar which is probably the biggest town in the Everest region.

The trek to Phunki is an easy walk. From here we ascend towards Tengboche village which houses the very famous Tengboche monastery which is the biggest monastery of the Everest region. It is located within the Sagarmatha National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The monastery is blessed with panoramic views of the Himalayas, including Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku. The Tengboche Monastery opens at 3:00 pm, so if we reach there by 3 o’clock we can observe a Buddhist religious ceremony.

Our trail descends and passes through lush forests of birch, conifer and rhododendron trees. While trekking, we can admire good views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam. We walk downhill to Debuche and cross the Imja River to reach Pangboche. We choose the upper Pangboche trail and admire the Himalayan vista and the Pangboche Monastery.

We continue our walk to the Imja Valley and Lobuche River before ascending to Dingboche. It is a picturesque village with beautiful barley, potato and buckwheat fields complete with grazing animals dotted along those fields.

We ascend to the steep terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. The trail passes through boulder-strewn slopes as we ascend Chupki Lhara which is a ridge that provides spectacular mountain views. The top of the ridge is filled with prayer flags and stones which are memorial shrines for climbers who lost their lives on Mt. Everest.

As the trail drops to the Khumbu Glacier moraine, we find ourselves facing several great peaks including Khumbutse, Lingtren, Pumori and Mahalangur Himal. As we are crossing Khumbu Glacier we can also see Mt. Nuptse.

Overnight in Lobuche.

The trek to Everest Base Camp is not very difficult. However, we ascend and descend mostly on a glacier path. There is also a lot of meandering on rough terrains. As we reach the base camp, we enjoy the incredible melt patterns and admire the gently rounded ice towers on the upper part of the Khumbu glacier.

The Everest Base Camp is stunningly beautiful. We can enjoy amazing views of Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori mountains from the base camp. After soaking in the beauty, we walk back towards Gorak Shep where we spend the night.

Overnight in Gorak Shep.

We wake up early for the walk up to Kala Patthar. It is dark outside with cold temperature and most likely chilly winds. We walk on a fairly steep trail at a comfortable pace. As we are climbing up the hill we can see Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse mountains. The view from the summit is outstanding. We can see the world’s tallest mountain Everest along other mighty Himalayan peaks. After spending some time at the summit of Kala Patthar, we walk back to Gorak Shep which is relatively easier than hiking up to Kala Pathhar.

Trekkers who visit the Everest Base Camp today will have an early breakfast as the hike up to the Everest base camp takes longer than the hike to Kala Patthar. After returning to Gorak Shep, the group will have lunch together. After lunch we descend to Pheriche to spend the night. Overnight in Pheriche.

We lose approximately 2,000 feet in elevation today and walk on a trail with a lot of ups and downs. We descend through a hillside filled with rhododendron and juniper trees and cross a bridge over the Dudh Koshi River. We descend rapidly through pine forest where we can easily spot mountains goats, pheasants and other wild animals and birds common to the area.

The path eventually reaches Sansa from where we can enjoy views of Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Nuptse mountains. We walk on winding trails followed by another walk through a forest before reaching Namche Bazaar.
