highlights
  • Everest Base Camp Trek is a famous challenging trek in Khumbu, Nepal
  • Get to the foot of the world's highest mountain
  • Visit Everest Base Camp and see the sunrise from Kalapatthar
This 12-days trek will take you to the base camp of the world's highest mountain, Mt. Everest and you'll be reaching a maximum height of 5,554 metres during the trek.

Famous for its spectacular mountain peaks and the loyal and friendly Sherpas, the Everest region, also known as the Khumbu region, is one of the most popular destinations for tourists in Nepal.

You will be trekking on great trekking trails near water falls, un-spoilt Buddhist monasteries and through the enchanting Sherpa villages on your way to Everest Base Camp. The EBC trek also gives you the opportunity to trek up to Kala Patthar, a 5554 meter peak on the way to Everest Base Camp, which is a superb vantage point for magnificent views of the southwest face of Mt Everest and other surrounding Himalayan Mountains such as Mt. Nuptse and Mt. Lhotse. After your hike up to KalaPatthar the trail takes you along the Khumbu Glacier to the foot of Everest where you'll finally reach the magnificent Everest Base Camp from where climbers are planning their summit attempts.

Reaching Everest Base Camp also marks the turnaround point of the trek so we'll slowly start our descend, eventually reaching Lukla and Kathmandu, where it all started.

We look forward to taking you on a trek of a lifetime. Please see the itinerary for further details.
Day 1 Kathmandu - Lukla - Phakding ( 2610 m) 45 minutes Guest house

Our representative will come at your door, in your hotel at nearly about 6 am to 10 am in Kathmandu, to receive you before we start the trip.
Early in the morning we will be heading to the airport for our flight to Lukla. This is an approximately 45 minutes flight with incredible mountain views north to the Himalayan Range.

Day 2 Phakding - Namche Bazaar ( 3440 m) 6 hours Guest house

This morning we continue north following the Dudh-Koshi river and on to Jorsale where we enter the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park. From here it is a short walk to the confluence of two rivers, the Imja-Drangpa (Imja-Khola) and the Nangpo-Tsangpo (Bhote-Kosi) where we cross once more on a suspension bridge. This is followed by a steep climb (for about 2hrs) up to Namche Bazaar, the main town in the Khumbu region.

Day 3 Namche - Tyangboche (3860 M) 6 hours Guest house

From Namche, the trail contours around the side of the valley, high above the river and, as we go, we will get to see great views of the great peaks of the Khumbu including Mt Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and AmaDablam.

After dropping down steeply to the river at PhunkiTenga and having lunch, we have a long steep climb up through beautiful forest to tonight's lodge.

Tyangboche is famous for its legendary monastery, the largest in the Khumbu and we will stay near this monastery with Everest, Lhotse and AmaDablam in full view.

Day 4 Tyangboche - Dingboche ( 4410m) 6 hours Guest house

After breakfast we head on up the trail to Dingboche. We first descend through stunning forest to Deboche and then cross the river and have a short climb to Pangboche which is a good lunch spot.

On this side of the river stunning Ama Dablam is prominent and a stunning distraction from the trail as we continue up to Dingboche for the night.

Day 5 Rest day full day hours Guest house

Today is for letting our bodies rest and acclimatize. If we are feeling good you could go for an acclimatization walk up the valley for a wider variety of photos of the valley and mountains of the Khumbu region.

Day 6 Dingboche - Lobuche ( 4930m) 6 hours Guest house

Today we head up a wide valley beneath the impressive peaks of Cholatse and Tawache on the left. we 'turn right' and climb more steeply towards the foot of the Khumbu Glacier, passing many stone cairns, built as memorials to the many Sherpas who have died helping people climb Mt Everest. The path then climbs gently along the glacier to reach the cluster of houses at Lobuche.

Day 7 Lobuche to Everest Base Camp via Gorakshep ( 5364m) 7 hours Guest house

Today we will walk 3 hours to Gorakshep along Khumbu Glacier and after the lunch we will continue to Everest Base Camp. The walk to base camp and back would require about 5-6 hours, following the Khumbu glacier, sometimes on moraine and sometimes on the glacier itself.

On reaching the base camp, please respect the space of the expeditions based there, but enjoy this crowning moment, before returning down the long trail back to GorakShep.

Day 8 GorakShep - Kalapattar - Pheriche ( 5545m) 8 hours Guest house

This morning we get up early to start the climb up to one of the finest viewpoints in the Everest region, Kala Patthar 5554m enjoying the sunrise over the mountains and the amazing views of Everest and the surrounding mountains. Then we trek back to GorakShep. After the breakfast we will walk downhill most of the way, as we retrace your steps to Duglha and then descend into Pheriche.

Day 9 Pheriche - Phortse (3810 ) 5 hours Guest house

Today we rejoin the ImjaKhola which you followed on the way up. Continuing along the river we return through Pangboche to gradual walk to Phortse.

Day 10 Phortse - Namche Bazaar 5 hours Guest house

From Phortse we descend to the bridge over the DudhKosi and from there we will steeply ascend to Mongla, after the descend and gradual walk back to Namche.

Day 11 Namche Bazaar - Lukla 7 hours Guest house

From Namche Bazaar you ought to be amazed at how easy that steep trail is to go down (as opposed to the hard slog you had as you came up) as we descend back down to the village of Jorsale. Passing the villages of Phakding and Choplung,we walk the trail that cuts up to the airstrip at Lukla.

Everest Base Camp Trek 12days
Ruizhen Zhang From Singapore At
4 - Very Good
“Great trip with Nepal Lion! Response rate was fast, the Director, Shiva is contactable at all times during the trip via WhatsApp or Facebook for any queries. They even provided me with a local SIM card and guide assisted me to get data on the phone to stay connected.
During the trip, guide was patient and safe. I fell sick on 2days and he was constantly checking if I was ok and was concerned when I didn't feel like eating. Very attentive and caring!
After the trip, I was even treated to a local cultural dinner and given a certificate of completion. Definitely different from other tour operators.”
Amazing!

“It was amazing, everything went according to plan and we were very lucky with the weather. The trip itself is 8 days up, 4 days down, and the scenery is breathtaking and ever changing. Look out for altitude sickness, but no worries, the guide is supremely knowledgeable and responsible, i felt very safe in their care and presence.
Thank you for everything!”
Great trip!

“I recently took a tour to the Mt Everest base camp using these guys and they were awesome. The employes met with me on the day off to make sure I had my documents ready before the flight up to Lukla, and my guide, Raj met me at my hotel and made sure everything was set for the adventure. We went during what is concidered the off season (mid-feb) which ended up being great. The weather was awesome and they guesthouses were not to crowded. We hit our goal and I crossed this off the bucket list. If you are from the States or Europe and looking at a hike in the Himalaya's as your next adventure give these guys a call.”

“Spent 14 days on the Everest Base Camp trek. It was a great trek, full of breathtaking views and challenging days, but we'll worth the money paid. If you have this on your bucket list like I did you will not be disappointed. Crew of Pasang and Suresh were fantastic and kept things loose. Very accommodating guides. Made our trip special.”
