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!

Great Experience
John T Creedon Jr From USA At
5 - Excellent
“Huge thanks to Rewanta, Babu, Subash, and the rest of the Unique Path team for a great experience. I almost didn't go last minute because I was worried about rain, flight concerns, and clouds ruining the trip. The weather turned out great, and this team did everything to make the experience go smoothly and splendidly. Rewanta was an amazing guide, and his experience clearly showed in his knowledge, personability, and attentiveness. We were able to do the trek reasonably quick but safely and it was immensely rewarding and informative. My biggest fears of getting out in and out of Lukla were quickly assuaged by the support of this team who clearly has the experience, flexibility, and the local connections necessary to help me navigate to and from all of my destinations with ease.”

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. After Kusum Drargka, a large stream, the trail crosses the Dudh Kosi river at Phakding. Overnight at guest house. 5:30 hours walking.
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.
