The Everest Basecamp Trek is amongst the most popular trekking routes in Nepal. Every year thousands flock to the foothills of the Himalayas to get a glance of the majesty of the worlds tallest peak, and the Satellite Mountains that surrounds it. Despite its popularity, it is not like other easier trekking routes in Nepal, as the altitude and the long difficult climbs, make the journey tough, while still being worthwhile for experienced trekkers. Trekking in Nepal remains as one of the great adventures on the planet; and the number of people visiting Nepal for treks is not going to dwindle anytime soon.

The Everest basecamp trek takes trekkers through a variety of different environments, with climbs and descents, along the Dudh Koshi (Milk Koshi) river, through wonderful gorges, hills and valleys, and forests of Rhododendron trees; all the while walking in the shadow of mountains that are the highest in the world -peaks above 8000m.

After a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the trek starts with an initial climb to Namche Bazar, which is the most important town in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Passing across scenic views everyday, trekkers can see various villages, monasteries, flora and fauna and stand in awe of the mountains on each day of the trek. While Kala Pathar (Black Rock), remains an important view point to see the majesty of Everest, the trek continues on and trekkers are expected to make it to the base camp on the ninth day of the adventure.

Throughout the trip, trekkers will be housed at teahouse lodges, where while the accommodations will be basic, they will provide the necessities, a place to sleep, warmth from the cold environment outside and warm food.

Everest Base Camp Trek is the best trekking packages for Everest base camp trekking optimized for all hiking lovers loaded with fun and safety operated in best trekking season with full of hiking information, affordable price and no doubt you can forget it's difficulty level while you are hiking.
Day 1 Fly Kathmandu to Lukla Trek to Phakding (2,652 m.) 2/3 hours Guest house

Early in the morning flight to Lukla from where all Everest treks start. 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.

Day 2 Trek to Namche (3,446 m.) 5/6 hours Guest house

We continue trekking along the banks of the Dudh Koshi, crossing this majestic river many times on exciting suspension bridges laden with prayer flags. After entering Sagamartha National Park, the trail climbs steeply with breathtaking views. Namche Bazaar known as the Gateway to Everest, is home to many quality restaurants, hotels, lodges, shops, money exchanges, internet cafes and a bakeries. Namche is one of the biggest villages along the whole Everest trail. Overnight at Guesthouse.

Day 3 Acclimatization Day Namche Guest house

This is essentially a day of rest at Namche in order to acclimatize our bodies with such elevation. You will have the opportunity to hike to Khumjung village (3,786m) and explore monasteries and local Sherpa villages. Namche itself is a famous town with some modern facilities. Enjoy your visit around, you’ll then stay overnight.

Day 4 Trek to Thyangboche (3867 m.) 5/6 hours Guest house

We start our trek with pleasant walk through the forest with magnificent view of mountains. We follow a spectacular path that traverses around the hillside high above the Dudh Kosi River. After walking one hour you will arrive in Phungithanga. The trail climbs past some water-powered prayer wheels and begins a sustained climb through a forest of tall, mature rhododendrons. Look out for musk deer and Himalayan Tahr among the trees. The start of the Tengboche (3867m), the village is scattered across a wide, grassy saddle below a crescent-shaped ridge covered by scrub pines and firs. From the view point at the top of the hill, there are awe-inspiring views of distinctive peaks like Amadablam (6856m), standing proud of the massif containing Everest (8848m), Nuptse (7861m), Lhotse (8501m) and inspiring views of Himalayan giants. We visit the Buddhist Monastery at Tengboche, the largest in Khumbu region.

Day 5 Trek to Dinboche (4,410 m.) 5/6 hours Guest house

In the morning views of mountain and monasteries are spectacular in Tengboche. From Tengboche we head north and soon cross the Dudh Kosi river by way of a small suspension bridge which spans a deep chasm in the river valley. Follow the trail as far as Orsho and take the lower path along the west bank of the Imja Khola, through the forest of birches conifers and rhododendrons. As we follow the river northward the trails pass through several chortens and mani walls and small villages. Today's walk offers views of the Mt.Tawache, Ama Dablam and to the north-Pokalde (5741m), Kongma-tse (5820m) and the great wall of Nuptse. Dingboche is also the gateway to Chukung and farther beyond for the most challenging traverses towards Makalu area. We enjoy the beautiful array of fields enclosed by stone walls to protect the barley, buckwheat and potatoes. Overnight stay in Dingboche.

Day 6 Acclimatization in Dingboche (4360m) 5/6 hours Guest house

This will be our second day of rest. Simply relish and relax in a place of such natural beauty for the day or take a short climb to the top of the ridge and admire three of the six highest peaks in the world including Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyo. Stay overnight.

Day 7 Trek to Lobuche (4,930 m.) 5/6 hours Guest house

We continue up the wide valley beneath the impressive peaks of Cholatse and Tawache on the left. We then turn right and take a steep climb towards the foot of the Khumbu Glacier. The tea house at Duglha is a good spot to have lunch. The trail zigzags up through the boulders of the glacier's terminal moraine. At the top of this climb there are many stone cairns, built as memorials to the many Sherpas who have died while climbing Mt Everest. The path then climbs gently along the glacier, to eventually reach the cluster of houses at Lobuche. We enjoy all our full board meals and get set for a good night’s sleep.

Day 8 Trek to Everest Base Camp and back to Gorakhshep 5/6 hours Guest house

The first section of the trail from Lobuche follows the narrow gap between the glacial moraine and the mountain walls, past turn off to the Italian pyramid. Take time to detour to the edge of moraine to look over the Khumbu glacier. Along windy and rocky path with the wonderful view of Mt. Pumori, Nuptse and other magnificent peaks, we reach Gorakshep. Gorakshep is the location of the original Everest Base Camp with the new camp being further up the valley.

Day 9 Hike up to Kala-Patthar (5,545 m.) Trek to Pheriche 7/8 hours Guest house

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.

Day 10 Trek to Tyangboche 6 hours Guest house

From Periche we take a slightly different route down to Orsho, then to Pangboche village. Here is the oldest monastery in the region which contains what is said to be the scalp and bones of a 'Yeti', or the abominable snowman. Leaving mountains behind us, our descent takes us through Tengboche Monastery at elevation of 3860 meters. Overnight at Guesthouse.

“We had a great trip. Rajendra was waiting for us in Kathmandu, and he took us to our hotel. He suggested places to visit in the city, and checked if we had the necessary gear.

After an amazing flight to Lukla, we began our trek. Our guide and porter were excellent, and we had some very nice hiking days. In Gokyo, I got sick (pneumonia and pulmonar oedema) and had to be evacuated. Rajendra was on top of things, and he managed to get a helicopter to take me to Kathmandu. Since our trekking was interrupted, after leaving the hospital Rajendra arranged other places to visit in Nepal. We went to Chitwan National Park, and it was amazing. The birds are spectacular, and there is a lot of wildlife (deer, rhinoceros, crocodiles, boar, and even tiger prints). We then went to Pokhara, where we enjoyed the views of the Annapurna, as well as some hiking to the World Peace Stupa.

Rajendra did everything in his power to help us and he was flexible with rearranging our plans. Even during a medical emergency, Rajendra was extremely helpful to take me to Kathmandú.”
Amazing people with amazing Everest Trek

“I booked a 14 day trip alone to EBC. I usually travel alone im the US, but i was quite hesitant to do so in a different country. However, everything was planned out from being greeted at the airport, hotel accommodations while in Kathmandu, flight to lukla, permits, a great guide and porter, and even being dropped off at the airport, all at a reasonable price.

Even now, after being back in the US for a few days, both Rajendra keep checking up on me making sure I am doing well.

They really do look after you and also do it with a shinning smile.”
