Enjoy the grandest journey in the land of the Himalayas with our 16-day, guided trek to Mount Everest Base Camp. Your adventure to the base camp begins with a rather scary flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla, at 2,800m elevation, and passes through the picturesque Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar to reach Gorakshep.

The high point of this journey is the ascent of Kala Patthar (5,500m) from where you can soak up stupendous views of Mount Everest and its surrounding peaks. You will spend most of the trek above the elevation of 3,000 meters in Khumbu and Imja valleys, whose skyline is dominated by the massive peaks of the Eastern Himalayas.

Along the way, you will get the chance to enjoy the culture of the Sherpa people, see ancient monasteries and learn how Lamaistic Buddhism influences the Sherpa life. Beautiful, multi-coloured prayer flags and prayer wheels along with intricately carved mani stones line every hilltop along the route.

Travellers who are physically fit and have a sound health can book this adventure. Some experience in high-altitude treks is preferred. For more experienced hikers who wish to take up the challenge, we suggest an Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes trek.

“Dear Makalu Adventure TeamThank you for a lifelong dream come true to trek in the Himalaya Mountains and reach Everest Base Camp. I knew that it would take a lot of commitment and a strong physical and mental effort from my part to achieve this dream. But without your excellent and professional team of Senior Guides, Shiva and Purna and Junior Guides Saugat and Roshan, together with the trustworthy team of Yak drivers and their well-looked after animals, this would not have been possible to achieve. Your team of professionals are really world-class people with excellent skills and knowledge. They looked after us and made sure everyone in our trekking group was coping and feeling ok. My deep Gratitude to them and best wishes for the future.”

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.
