We will pick you up from your hotel in Kathmandu and drive you to the airport. Take the morning flight from Kathmandu to Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla. If the weather is good, you will enjoy great views of the Himalayas during the flight.

Meet your guide on arrival at the airport and start your trek. Descend to the Dudh Kosi River and take the main trail to Namche Bazaar. After passing through the small village of Ghat, it is a short walk to Phakding.
7 hours Guest house
Start your trek early in the morning. You might get your first glimpse of Everest while crossing the mighty Dudh Kosi. The trail gets steeper as you head towards Namche, the unofficial capital and the centre of economic activity in this region. Stay in Namche tonight.
Guest house
Allow your body to acclimatize today. Relax in your room and explore the surrounding areas. Most trekkers prefer to get up before sunrise to see the Himalayas from Namche.
4 hours Homestay
Leave Namche and head for Kyangjuma via Sanasa. From Sansa, take the trail to Everest Base Camp and continue to Phorche (also known as Phortse). This village is a typical Sherpa village where most people are involved in farming. In fact, this is the biggest farming village in the Everest region.

5 hours Guest house
This day offers you the chance to rest and acclimatize. However, we have also included hiking to Chukhung Ri for today. Although not as dramatic as Kala Patthar, Chukhung Ri is a great place to see mountains from. Return to your hotel in Dingboche and take rest after the hike is over.
6 hours Guest house
Continue your journey to Lobuche via Dugla. Lobuche is cold throughout the year, with temperatures dropping down below the freezing point even during the summer.
6 hours Guest house
Start your trek to Gorakshep from Lobuche, which take around three hours. Continue your journey to Everest Base Camp while enjoying astonishing views of mountains all around. The final point of your journey, however, is Kala Patthar, a great place from which to enjoy a spectacular sunset view. See Mount Everest as well as Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbetse, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku mountains along with many other small peaks. Descend to Gorakshep, where you will spend your night.
8 hours Guest house
Time to start your journey to Lukla. Take the downhill trail to Pheriche, a small village in the Himalayas.
5 hours Guest house
The distance you will cover from Pheriche to Namche Bazaar is around 14.3 km. Spend your night in Namche today.
6 hours Guest house
This is the last day of the trek. Cross the Dudh Kosi and continue your journey through Chumoa and Phakding to reach Lukla. Travel through thick rhododendron and oak forests along the way.

What are customers saying about Bookmundi
Good to know
Recommended trekking gear: During any trek in Nepal you will experience a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions. The equipment you bring must function well in a wide variety of conditions. Your clothing should be lightweight, warm, dry quickly and allow good freedom and movement. Please take the time to choose your clothing and equipment carefully, it may make the difference between a comfortable and successful trip and one which could have been more enjoyable. Clothing Lightweight hiking boots If you are using a new pair of boots you should work them in to avoid suffering from blisters. Spare laces are also good to bring. Pair of track shoes/sandals These are necessary at night to let your boots dry if they are wet, and also to allow your feet to breathe. Sandals are great for wearing in the camps and towns. Warm jacket A fiber fill or down jacket is easy to pack and keeps the body warm during cold days and nights at high elevation. Rain jacket/Poncho A guaranteed waterproof, hooded jacket is essential. Heavyweight and lightweight trousers Heavyweight trousers are useful in the morning and at night when you are high up in the mountains. Having an extra pair of light trousers can be handy. Also, rain trousers are practical. Loose fitting, long shorts/skirts A couple of pairs of these are easy to pack and comfortable to wear. •Lightweight, long sleeve and short sleeve shirts A long sleeve shirt is suitable for protection against the sun while trekking. Wool hat and gloves During the winter season these are a definite necessity for cold mornings and nights. Thin and thick woolen socks A couple of pairs of each will suit you for all conditions. Underwear: A normal quantity. Also swimming wear is useful. Thermal underwear: These are optional but ideal to sleep in during the night. In the winter season they are highly recommended. Accessories and equipment Backpack/duffle bag: You will need a bag with good back support and space to carry all of your trekking gear. A rain cover for your bag is very useful to have. Small backpack/bag You can use this to carry all of your personal equipment and daily needs. Sunglasses/snow glasses: These are great not only for protecting your eyes from the sun and snow, but also from wind and dusty trails. Plastic bags 24 large plastic bags are great for separating dirty or wet clothing. 810 small bags can be used to dispose garbage. Toiletries Toilet paper and Kleenex can be hard to find as you get high up into the mountains. You can also bring hankies. Small headlamp/torch Spare batteries and bulbs are necessary as well as lighters and candles. Other useful accessories: First Aid kit, trekking map, pocket knife, binoculars, reading materials, games (cards etc;), notebook, pen and pencils etc; FAQs: Q: I have never done trekking before. Is this trek suitable for me? A: As long as you are reasonably fit, mentally prepared and can walk for 6-7-hours a day then you should be able to successfully complete this trekking. Q: How long do we walk each day? A: The approximate duration of each day is specified in the program. On the rest days you have the option to hike around the village or hike to optional places, or you can take a full rest during that day. Q: Are there charging possibilities for mobile phones, camara's and other electronic equipment available? A: The teahouses have charging possibilities via their solar panels. Please note, if it has been cloudy for a period of time, back-up batteries might run out of power. The guesthouses usually charge between 300-500 rupees per hour. Q: Is there laundry service available? A: Yes. Your guesthouse will provide this service. Please not that laundry will be done by hand. You can also decide to do your own laundry in a bucket. Q: Is there bottled water on the Everest base camp trek? A: Yes, there's bottled water from Lukla all the way up to base camp. But, the price goes up the higher you go. One liter bottle of water cost start around 70 rupees and at base camp cost well over 300 (around $3). A budget solution to this is to use water treatment solution or use water purifier tablets. Some purification tabs and drops make the water taste weird. Please be aware of that too. Buying boiled water can be a solution to save money from expensive bottled water but make sure if water was fully boiled or not before you buy. Q: Is there age limit for Everest Base Camp Trek? A: There isn't any official age limit saying you can and cannot trek to Everest Base Camp. However, we recommend children to be at least 12 years old. Q: How difficult is the Everest Base Camp Trek? A: In terms of terrain there are no ropes needed and no ice picks needed. There is no vertical climbing involved. The ground is not paved. It is rough, rocky and gravel strewn. Most of the trek involves long paths that go up and down. People with weak ankles should take caution. Q: Is this trek accessible for children?? A: Yes, it is. It's advisable that the child is reasonable and able to understand and follow instructions immediately. Your child should be mature enough to recognize altitude sickness symptoms.
