The awe-inspiring views of the beautiful mountains swaddled in the glittering white snow, Everest Base Camp Trek takes you to a place beyond your imagination.

So, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and grab your hiking boots for the accomplishment- a lifetime trophy!

After a sightseeing tour around the Kathmandu city and necessary preparations for the trek, you take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the starting point of Everest Base Camp Trek. After an enrapturing flight above the beautiful landscapes- parallel to the mystic mountains, you will find yourself in Lukla. You walk along the glittering Dudhkoshi river and move along a well paved path to Phakding. You ascend through the pine and cedar forests to the buzzling, colorful Namche Bazaar. You hike to Everest view hotel for the magnificent views of Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Tawache, Thamserku and other towering mountains in the Everest region of Nepal.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is an opportunity to get some insights about Sherpa life and their culture.

As you go up from Tengboche to Dingboche to Lobuche, the mountains views are clearer and nearer. Finally after few days of strenuous ups and downs, you make your way to the top- Everest Base Camp, your ultimate dream. The soaring mountain ranges right in front of you is a reward to your efforts for the trek. The jaw dropping 360 views of the peaks of Everest, Changtse and Nuptse II from the peak of Kala Patthar (5,545m), a black stone ridge, is simply astonishing.

Please check the itinerary for a day-by-day trekking itinerary.
Day 01: Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2652m/8699ft) Duration: 3 hours
Early morning transfer to the airport for Lukla flight. The flight to Lukla is a lifetime experience in itself. The airfield is at high evaluation and the difference between the two ends of the runway is about an exceptional 60 meters only. Trek to Phakding with an arresting, green landscape with the view of Kusum Kangraru. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 02: Trek to Namche Bazaar (3440m/11283ft) Duration: 6 hours
We follow the Dudh Koshi, ascending through Himalayan pine and cedar forests, to the celebrated village of Namche Bazaar. The village of Namche is a historic trading post where Nepalese and Tibetan traders exchange salt, dried meat and textiles. Besides being a splendid destination to shop for traditional crafts, Namche remains the central trading post in the Khumbu that attracts Himalayan and lowland merchants. You will spend two days at Namche for acclimatization, visit local markets and spend time with your team. On the hike we capture our first glimpses of Everest and neighboring peaks.
Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 03: Namche Bazar and Everest View Hotel
This day is especially sectioned for acclimatization. We will hike to Syangboche Airport (3700m), supposed to be the highest airport in the world, then continue climbing to Everest View Hotel for great panoramic views of the Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, Tawache etc. On the way back, we visit Sherpa Culture Museum and Everest Photo Gallery. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 04: Trek to Tengboche (3860m/12660ft) Duration: 5 hours
The uniform and easy trail leads us towards the view of Mount Everest, descending deep into the Dudh Koshi Valley at Pungki Thanka and from this point, it ascends the right flank of the Dudh Koshi valley to Tengboche Monastery (3860m). It is the spiritual center of the Khumbu. The climb is lengthy, but is more than adequately compensated by gorgeous views of Mount Amadablam and on a clear day, views of Mt. Everest and its surrounding peaks. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 05: Trek to Dingboche (4410m/14464ft) Duration: 5 hours
Descend through a beautiful forest, cross the Imja Khola and trek through the village of Pangboche (3900m); perhaps today is the most interesting trekking because you will not lose altitude like on other days and you will enjoy views of Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Lhotse & other peaks; the route continues through pastures to Dingboche, known as the 'summer valley'. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 06: Hike to Nagerjun (5100m/16728ft) and return Dingboche, 6 hours
This would be your second acclimatization day that requires about 6 hours of trekking to an altitude of 5100m. After breakfast, you ascend Nagerjun (5100m), a hill located on the flanks of the Chhukung valley directly above Dingboche. The main aim is to climb high and sleep low. The foot path becomes steep at times, resulting in a physically strenuous day. Ascending the hill could take up to 5 hours at altitude. From this altitude there are good views of Lobuche East (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m) and Ama Dablam (6856m). On a clear day, you could even see Makalu, the world’s fifth highest mountain, including great views of the Pheriche Valley. After a short rest, you start the descent back to Dingboche and the walk at altitude takes about 2 hours. After lunch, take a well-deserved rest, as afternoon temperatures could drop rapidly as the sun sets over the mountain tops. You will also spend a second night in Dingboche. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 07: Trek to Lobuche (4910m/16105ft) Duration: 5 hours
Trek along a broad valley floor to Dughla, passing the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche (4240 m). This trek is staffed by western volunteer doctors and supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association, which offers treatment and consultation to trekkers. Continue up the valley, gaining altitude. We come out of the valley to descend to the yak pastures of Lobuche. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 08: Trek to Everest Base Camp (5364m/17594ft) & back to Gorekshep (5181m/16994ft) Duration: 8 hours
After a short climb through meadows, look down at the Khumbu glacier. Straight ahead is Kalapattar - the best vantage point to view the entire south face of Mt. Everest and the surrounding peaks. After a couple of hours we will get to Gorekshep, and continue our journey to the Everest base camp. There is not much elevation gain, but there are a lot of ups and downs and, combined with altitude, this can be an exhausting trek - but the journey is worth it. After approximately 3 hrs of hiking, you will arrive at the base camp and enjoy a magnificent view of the Khumbu glacier and icefall, where the Everest expeditions begin. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 09: Hiking to Kalapattar (5545m/18188ft) - Gorekshep - Pheriche (4210m/13809ft) Duration : 7 hours
The day starts with a hike up to Kalapattar (5545m), the best viewpoint to witness Mount Everest, in all its glory and the spectacular Himalayan range. We then trek back to Gorekshep, for breakfast and then descend to Pheriche (4210m). Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 10: Trek to Namche (3440m/11283ft) Duration: 7 hours
Easy walk along the Imja Khola, short climb to Tengboche, descend Pungki Thanka and complete steep to Kyangjuma, and easier trail to Namche. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 11: Trek to Lukla (2800m/9184ft) Duration: 7 hours
The trek continues along the Dudh Kosi River to the small mountain airstrip at Lukla, where you will catch your return flight to Kathmandu. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 12: Fly back to Kathmandu
30-minutes amazing scenic fly back to Kathmandu. Breakfast included.

Memorable Everest Base Camp to last a lifetime
JK NG From Singapore At
5 - Excellent
“Since I've been to Annapurna Base Camp trek, I tend to make a comparison. There is less vegetation, rivers, wooden bridges and ascending and decending stone steps. You can see more yaks and jobkes than donkeys. The porters (not the ones that carry your stuff) carry more huge and irregular-shaped stuff than those in ABC. You'll be amazed.

The terrain is more rugged. There are more snow mountains to see and the lodgings are much better than those in ABC.

I had minor difficulty in completing the last stage from MBC to EBC at 4,310m, but I had none when I was from Gorekshep to EBC which is above 5,140m. I wonder if it is because that it is a second trip for me. But surprisingly the trek from Gorekshep down to Pheriche the next day was a tiring one.

One last thing on the porters. If you Google Nepal trekking porters, you can see all kinds of stuff that the other porters carry along this trek, zinc roof, huge mattresses, doors and even sinks. We cannot do anything for these type of porters, including those who wait everyday at the exit of Lukla airport hoping for a job when each flight filled with trekkers arrived. Hence dear trekkers, I appeal to you to tip your porters generously.

Nevertheless, the memories from this trip will last a lifetime.”
Incredible Trek with Nepal Hiking Team!
Kristine Kruppa From United States of America USA At
5 - Excellent
“I just completed a trek to Everest Base Camp with Nepal Hiking Team, and I can't say enough good things about them! Being a solo female trekker, safety was my top priority, and I felt completely secure the entire time. In all my travels around the world, Nepal Hiking Team is the best tour operator I have used.

My guide, Kishor, was fantastic. He took excellent care of me at all times and was always checking in to make sure I was feeling well and enjoying myself.

I ended up getting altitude sickness at Gorak Shep and had to be helicopter evacuated to Kathmandu. Kishor helped me every step of the way and Ganga (the owner of Nepal Hiking Team) took care of all my travel insurance communication. I have never been more impressed with a tour company. Nepal Hiking Team went above and beyond in every way.

If you're considering a trip to Nepal, I'd highly recommend booking with Nepal Hiking Team. I'll certainly use them when I return to Nepal!”

Not for the faint of heart!
Sanchia Playfair From United States of America USA At
4 - Very Good
“This was one of the most exciting trips I have done. It has some of the most breathtaking views I have ever witnessed. No cars, no electric lines, just trails, yaks, donkeys and treks. -24 degree weather conditions made it extra tough! I ended up very sick after the base camp and I was trekking on my own with the guide and sherper as the rest of the group had returned early. I felt very well take care of and everyone did their best to make sure a, I made the base camp and b, got home safely!
Both of which I did. One dream come true!”
