HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trek to Everest Base Camp, the base camp of the world's highest mountain
  • Explore the culture and lifestyle of the famed Sherpa people
  • Visit ancients monasteries and gompas of the Khumbu Valley
  • Enjoy amazing panoramic views of the Himalayas
This 12-day typical EBC trek is the adventure of a lifetime! The trek takes you to the beautiful valley of the Khumbu and Sherpa villages of Lukla, Phakding, Namche, Pangbuche, Pheritse, and Gorakshep. Discover the culture and lifestyle of the legendary mountain people while experiencing close-up views of Everest and Lhotse, two of the world’s 10 tallest mountain peaks! In the famed Everest Region, you’ll be rewarded with diverse flora and fauna, Morain's glaciers, Alpine lakes, and outstanding mountain vistas.

The trek starts from Kathmandu via a short but dramatic mountain flight to Lukla, with great views of the Himalayas. The trek officially starts from this small mountain fly-in-only town and ascends to Phakding via several Sherpa settlements alongside the Dud Khosi River. Our journey to the Everest Base camp takes us through this beautiful land of the Sherpa people, crossing the villages of Monjo, Namche, Tengboche, Pangbuche, Pheritse, Labuche, Gorakshep, and finally base camp.

Best of the best of the best!
“Trekking to Everest Base Camp was undoubtedly the best experience of my life!I left Italy at 20 years old alone for come to Nepal and I want to tell everyone who is thinking about that to DO IT, I will not find again in the world a place like Nepal, and Himalayas regions. I'm in love with that country and her people. During the trekking i saw some fantastic landscapes, crossed crazy tibetan bridges, saw rare animals and slept in the typical villages of the Nepalese mountains, it is a trek that for trekking lovers like me cannot be missing in the list.”

Life-changing experience with Alpine Ramble
“I did the Everest Base Camp Trek from the 15.02. to the 27.02. with the organization Alpine Ramble. When I arrived in Kathmandu the boss of the organization (Dil) and my guide (Sujal) picked me up at the airport in Kathmandu. From this point on you dont have to care about anything. They bring you to the hotel and on the next day, you start your trek. In total, you have to walk for 11 days. 8 days up, 3 days down. During the trek, you sleep in very comfortable lodges. I always had a single room because of the lower frequentation on the trek in the winter months. In this lodges, you can choose from a wide range of dishes. My guide Sujal was a great guide. He was very well informed about the Himalaya which means he could tell me everything about each mountain on the trek. During the trek, he always took care of me. He had the right medicine for each problem you can have in the mountains. In the recovery times, in our accommodations, we played cards and had some good conversations. We had a lot of fun. After the trek I had dinner with Dil and Sujal in Kathmandu where they talk with you about your trek and if they could fulfill your expectations. Before I left Nepal I was for 2 days in Chitwan. Dil organized and paid the bus for me, which was not included in our contract. Both guys are very professional. The their first goal is to give you a great experience on your trek and in Nepal. To summarize - everything was great. I am looking forward to doing the next trek with this great team.”

Experienced and skilled local guide
“I had the chance to take part to a solo + guide trekking in december 2019 and I contacted Dil of Alpine Ramble. I admit that no better choice I could have done: he was fast, precise and after all the details to make me feel confident do reach BC1 and enjoy the trip, despite all the difficulties due to the cold season. The guide/Sherpa was fluent in English and not only helped me bearing my bag, but also making me feel at ease with long pleasing conversations. Lastly, once back to KTM, Dil personally came to my hotel and invited me to have dinner and a good beer together. The whole experience was great and I'm sure a good part was thanks to Alpine Ramble. Nepal deserves to be visited and discovered, local business need us. Give them a chance and you'll have a rich return in experience.”

Trip of a Lifetime!!!
“My brother, sister and I decided to embark on the adventure of a lifetime and travel to Nepal. We went through Alpine Ramble to reach Everest Base Camp, and we could not have been in better hands. Every detail of the trip was taken care of, and the team was thorough and thoughtful in planning out our adventure so that we would have the ultimate experience. Our food and accommodations (even snacks!) were thoughtfully planned, and we had the opportunity to go on an extra hike to see spectacular views of Everest at sunset. Wow!! We were treated to a special ethnic dinner upon our return to the city--the experience could not have been more unique and special. Incredible!!!”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • 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.

  • 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.
