The Everest Base Camp Trek is famous around the world as its offers a world-class trekking trail, heading straight up to the mother of earth - Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain at 8,850 m. When doing the everest base camp trek you will be flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, the airport in the everest region, landing amidst mountains. The closer you get to Everest Base camp, the higher the more altitude you take on, and the more mountainous the landscape gets.

The scenery on this trek is extremely rewarding and despite it may be tough and challenging at times, this is a one-in-a-lifetime-experience which you are likely to remember for the rest of your life.

Leaving the airport Lukla, the trek starts and we will spend the first night in Phakding. On the second day we will trek to Namche Bazar, the capital of the Everest region. Here, at an altitude of 3,400 meters, we will take one rest day to acclimatize properly. This also gives us a chance to explore Namche and make an excursion to a great view point, getting the first view of Mount Everest.

From Namche Bazaar, we trek through high altitudes and chilly weather. After four hours trekking, we reach Tyangboche Monastery which is located at an altitude of 3,867 m. This monastery resides on the top of a ridge. It provides the first divine view of Sagarmatha, which Mount Everest is called by the local inhabitants of the Everest region.

From here, we move towards our destination following the villages of Imja Khola, Pangboche and Pheriche, finally reaching the vast Khumbu glacier. Beyond this glacier we reach the village of Lobuche where we can rest for some time and admire the exquisite natural surroundings. Soon you will be atop the great viewpoint of KalaPatthar at an altitude of 5,600 meters. You will also stand face to face with mountaineers preparing to ascend Mt. Everest, at Everest Base Camp.

If you are able to trek 6 hours a day, you can do this trek. If in doubt, we highly recommend that you employ the services of a porter who can carry your backpack (1 porter can carry up to 30 kgs so can be shared between 2 people). You can add a porter upon check-out.

We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic trekking experience.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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 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.

  • Are there bag weight restrictions for the small aircraft flight from Kathmandu to Lukla?

    Yes. The baggage weight allowance on the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is 10 kg for checked baggage plus 5kg for hand baggage for a total of 15 kg. Bags overweight will be charged approximately USD 1 per kg over the limit.

     

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.
