This Everest Base Camp Trek is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable and hike the most famous trekking route in the world.

Nepal is a fantastic trekking country and this trek proves that. Get insights into the lives and culture of the Sherpa people along with trekking their trails. See the sunrise from the view point of Kala Pattar at an altitude of 5,500 meters. Visit the infamous Everest Base Camp and watch climbers preparing their ascent of the world's highest mountain at 8,850 meters.

This trek is for trekkers who like altitude and who are looking to push themselves. It is a rather tough trek so you should be reasonably fit. If in doubt, we recommend adding a porter who can carry up to 30 kgs and can be shared between 2 people. Our ascent will be steady and well-paced to suit the acclimatisation needed, ensuring that we reach Everest Base Camp safely.

We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic trek!

“My guide, Ambar Bamjan, was not only a great guide on the hike, but accompanied me from my hotel in Kathmandu through the airport and flight to Lukla. You need to have an extra day or two in your schedule, as I missed a connection on the way to Nepal, and the flight to Lukla is very unpredictable due to weather. Incredible scenery unfolds immediately on the initial 2-3 hour hike the first day and continues for the entire trip. After the first few days a trekker on the way down told me the landscape got even better, and I didn’t see how it could, but it did! I took over 2000 photos, but I don’t think a single one captured the beauty that surrounds you 360 degrees. You have to see it in person! Some of the hikes are pretty difficult, with up to 2 hour stretches all uphill, although there is a lot of up and down overall. I frequently was thankful for the hours I spent on a stairmaster during the months before the trip. The tea houses were nice but primitive, especially toilets. The only heat was stoves burning yak chips in the eating areas around dinner time most days. I was very comfortable in my sleeping bag, however, and glad I brought a liner. You don’t need the pad and pillow suggested in the list of things to bring. My guide was very attentive to how I was feeling with the altitude, and we were actually able to skip the acclimatization day and finish the trek a day early. If you have an extra day or two, Kathmandu has interesting Buddhist and Hindu temples, especially the monkey temple, but the air is filled with smog and dust - get out to the surrounding areas as much as possible - Nagarkot and Bhaktapur are very nice. If your idea of a great vacation is sitting in the beach sipping mimosas don’t do this! If you want a challenge this is the most stunning scenery I’ve ever seen!”

“Had the best time trekking to EBC.
Choosing to go in winter was a big decision for two Queenslanders but I would recommend the off season to everyone! The tracks were empty, the teahouses had plenty of room and the snow makes the hot chocolates taste even better ;)
GET A PORTER. Not only does it help the Nepalese economy it also ensures you don't have that extra challenge when fighting the altitude and you actually enjoy the journey each day rather than trying to hurry to the destination. We are both very fit young girls so carrying the bags would have been fine but we really think we enjoyed the trip a lot more than those who choose to not hire a porter. Yes it's expensive but this is a once in a lifetime trip so ensure you do it all right!”

Fly to Lukla, 30 minutes. Begin the trek. The trail descends, gradually passing above the large village of Chaunrikharaka (2,680 m) and on through small villages, fields and forests following a wide well-constructed path.

5.5 hours Guest house
From Phakding the trail follows the western bank of Dudh Kosi passing through forests of Blue Pine until it reaches the village of Benkar (2,700 m). From here the trail crosses to the eastern bank of the Dudh Kosi, and climbs gently to the village of Chumoa. Between here and the next village of Monjo (2,800 m) the trail drops steeply to cross Monjo Khola. From Monjo the trail crosses a small rock saddle and then descends abruptly to re-cross the Dudh Kosi at Jorsale (2,804 m). Beyond Jorsale the trail undulates up until the confluence with Bhote Kosi is reached. From here the Khumbu region begins. Above the bridge the trail zigzags up 300 m of the steep spur between the two rivers through sparse forest. From the top of the spur, Mt. Everest can be seen rising above Nuptse-Lhotse wall. The next section of the trail climbs less steeply, traversing above the Bhote Kosi until Namche Bazaar is reached. Namcha Bazaar is a market town, where every Saturday morning traders from lower altitude sell goods to sherpas. Most of the trading is over by mid-day and the traders return to their villages. Overnight at guest house. 5.5 hours walking.
