Everest Base Camp Trek Overview

Everest base camp trek is most probably on the bucket list of most trekkers who seek adventure, thrill and a fun-filled yet notable accomplishment in life. This is one of the topmost hiking tours for which climbers from all around the globe visit Nepal. Since the days of early expeditions itself, Mount Everest (8,848m) has had a lure of its own, drawing climbers to scale it and trekkers to gaze at its icy faces.

The major highlight of the trek is undoubtedly the Everest Base Camp which not only gives you an up-close view of the world’s tallest mountain, Everest but also gives you a magnificent view of the other three highest peaks of the world that is Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,481m) and Cho Oyu(8,201m), giving you a chance to view in total 4 out of 10 highest peaks in the world.

Everest Base Camp Trekking to the Sherpa land is renowned for its exceptional view of the serene mountain range breathtaking landscapes, unique culture, historic monastery, and an awe-inspiring sensation throughout the journey.

This is a pleasant trek to the Mount Everest base camp that offers you an experience of the great challenge, achievement, and thrills of being so close to the world’s highest peak in the world. The journey to the base camp begins with a scenic flight to Lukla. For those looking for an adrenaline rush on this trip, you get to experience an amazing thrill on your first flight itself since Lukla is famous for it has one of the narrowest runways in the world.

This trek introduces you to world-famous viewpoints, breathtaking sunrise, and an adventure that goes beyond the horizons into a natural paradise that will undoubtedly stir your emotions.

Trek to Everest Base Camp commences in the vibrant city of Kathmandu which has an ancient nudge to itself, where you will discover hundreds of historical monuments and world heritage sites. Half an hour of thrilling flight over the mountains will take you to our next destination, Lukla.

Lukla is adorned with a tiny airstrip from where your adventure journey to the Base Camp really begins. The trail sets you off to the homelands of the Sherpa people who are rich in their hospitality, traditions, and culture. The monasteries in the area are enchanting and very appealing to the eyes since it is set amongst the most beautiful mountains in Nepal.

The route stumbles upon the popular Kalapattar (also known as black rock 5,545m), standing over which you get an outstanding view of the Himalayan giants which literally numbs your senses with breathless admiration that beholds the eye, and makes up for the lung-bursting climb that you just took up there. This also includes fantastic views of the southwest face of the massive, Mount Everest.

Everest Base Camp Trek is overall a smooth trip, however, the altitude might take its toll, hence we recommend the trekkers to be more careful while pacing and also acclimatize as much as possible for the trip to be safe and fun-filled.

Everest Base Camp Trek Guide

Everest Base Camp Trip Altitude Profile

The rise in altitude is one of the most challenging parts of EBC Trekking. Gaining steady elevation makes the trip difficult, even more so than trekking past the rocky terrain. In comparison to other trekking journeys of the same length, EBC Trek presents a higher reach in altitude.

That is why considering the occurrence of AMS is a serious condition during the trip and proper time should be given to acclimatizing.

The EBC Trek usually starts with a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, situated at an altitude of 3,000 meters. From there, the path follows along the rivers and includes settlements that steadily gain elevation, with the highest point of the trek being at the vantage point of Kalapatthar- located at an altitude of 5,500 meters.

The Everest Base Camp itself is located at an altitude of 5,400 meters. Kalapatthar presents breathtaking panoramic views of the entire Mount Everest massif. Acclimatization is usually done in Namche Bazaar, situated at an altitude of 3,440 meters.

The second acclimatization time is done in the village of Dingboche, situated at an altitude of 4,360 meters. The highest point for an overnight stay during the trip is Gorekshep, at an elevation of 5,170 meters.

One of the major points for acclimatization is to adjust the body to a high elevation. While in Namche, trekkers tend to usually visit sites like the Syangboche airstrip located above the town, and the Everest View Hotel located a few kilometers from Namche.

Other notable overnight stops along the EBC Route in synchrony include the villages of Lukla to Phakding (2,652 meters), Monjo (2,840 meters), Kyangjuma (3,570 meters), Tengboche (3,860 meters), Pheriche (4,280 meters), Dhugla (4,600 meters) and Lobuche (4,940 meters).

Best Time to Trek to Everest Base Camp

Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal is probably one of the most sought-after treks in Nepal. What many trekkers wonder is, what is the best season for the Everest Base Camp hike then? As Alpine Eco Trek organizes this amazing trek in Nepal for many years, we have listed out the best times to trek to Everest Base Camp.

Autumn means late September to the end of December and during the spring season, late March to mid-May would be the best season to head out for the Everest Base Camp hike.

Trek to Everest Base Camp during the autumn season

During the autumn season, the weather will be a bit colder, but the views are incredible and besides the spring season this will be the best time to visit Everest Base Camp. While you’re out trekking the skies will be clear and the surrounding white-topped Himalayas make for a perfectly picturesque scene. With warm days and cold nights, the stay in the tea-house becomes more comfortable, and the higher we go the better views become.

Do you want more info about the Everest Base Camp Trip? Do not hesitate and contact our Alpine Eco Trek team, we will be happy to provide you with as much information as possible to make your trip planning an easy and worry-free task.

Hiking to the Base Camp of Everest during the spring season 

Although warmer than the autumn season, trekking to Everest Base Camp during the spring season is absolutely perfect if you’re looking for a great trekking experience in Nepal. With more accessible paths and warm trekking days, spring is the peak season for Mt. Everest summiteers.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp can also be done during other seasons, but we are not so happy to recommend it, as due to unpredictable weather most flights to and from Lukla airport will be delayed and sometimes even canceled, resulting in a bad experience during your trek in Nepal.

Fitness Guidelines for Everest Base Camp Trek Packages

As stated, the Everest Base Camp hiking tour is a moderate trekking trip. For this, you will need to prepare your body before the journey. Doing cardio exercises boost the body’s stamina and helps in the overall performance of trekking endurance.

Despite being achievable, the EBC Trek still presents certain challenges, like long hours of trekking and the rise in elevation above 3,000 meters. The Khumbu, which is where the EBC Trek takes place, presents trekkers with alpine, mainly uphill hikes on rocky terrains.

Moreover, you also need to be able to hike through back-to-back days. That is why building up endurance is necessary.

For physical preparation before trekking, you can practice cardio exercises, starting at 30-minute duration at the beginning and then gradually increasing your workout time. This will help in building the muscles and also increase your stamina and boost your endurance capacity.

Likewise, the EBC Trek also presents the arduous task of trekking up elevations that present low oxygen amounts in the atmosphere. High altitude makes breathing slightly harder than normal and can result in getting worn out faster.

Thus, it is also important to keep that in mind while preparing for the trip. Getting used to exercising at low oxygen-level conditions can also adjust your body for the trekking trip. Doing so can alter your body to take in more oxygen than normal per breath, which is useful while trekking in the mountains.

This is one of the physical characteristics of the ethnic Sherpa people who live in the mountains. Their high-altitude environment has made their bodies alter and adjust to the environmental conditions.

Accommodation during Everest Base Camp Trekking Days

In Kathmandu:

As you start off this incredible trek, you’ll spend the first days in Kathmandu. As the capital of Nepal and known as a cultural hub this amazing city is filled with sightseeing places, old temples, and palaces.

Alpine Eco Trek wants you to experience only the best of Nepal and we provide you a guided sightseeing tour around Kathmandu Valley on request. For your overnight stay, you can choose the standard hotel, located in Thamel, also known as Backpackers Alley. On request, we can help you to find the best accommodation in Thamel.

Thamel is filled with trekking shops, restaurants, and interesting handicraft shops. All the accommodations in Thamel are based on Bed and Breakfast so you can enjoy a delicious breakfast in the peaceful garden of a standard hotel, and for dinner, you get to explore around and have something from the local restaurants. We do recommend the Nepalese momo or dumplings, a favorite in all of Nepal.

During the Trek:

Leaving Kathmandu behind and heading into the Everest region of Nepal, means leaving all luxury behind. During the actual trek, we will be staying in the various tea or guesthouses available and of course, this doesn’t mean luxury resorts.

Staying in the local villages during the trek is charming in its own way. Being away from busy roads and urban city life, the peacefulness of our accommodation during the trek is soothing and something to look forward to.

Alpine Eco Trek believes strongly in sustainable tourism and makes use of as many local options as possible to further help develop this stunning region in Nepal.

As we go on the Everest Base Camp trip, breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. Breakfast and dinner will be served in the local guesthouses and lunch is usually packed for an on-the-way picnic.

The guest houses are charming in their own way with incredible Himalayan views. The rooms are clean but we do recommend bringing your own sleeping bag as hygiene is important.

Meals during Everest Base Camp Trekking

As stated before during the trek itself we serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With a Nepali staple dish of delicious rice, lentil soup, and vegetables on the main menu, it’s also possible to order something a la carte in the local guesthouses. We do recommend staying away from any meat dishes as we are in the Himalayas and meat preservation facilities are less than in bigger cities.

Wonder if you can get gluten-free meals? Well, during the trek there are no such options but you can always prepare some items and pack them with you during your trek towards Everest Base Camp.

You can also inform our Alpine Eco Trek team of any diet to take into account during your trek, this way we can make the necessary preparations.

Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary Duration

In general, the Everest Base Camp hiking tour takes about 13 days. Most of the trekking journeys are also incorporated with a pre and post-night stay in Kathmandu. The duration of the EBC Trek is incorporated with ample acclimatization time. The trek is done at a slow and comfortable pace as this allows your body to adjust to the gradually rising elevation. It is advised to not rush the trip as it can lead to Acute Mountain Sickness.

AMS occurs when your body does not adjust to the gain in elevation and can cause symptoms like dizziness, nausea, vomiting, headaches, loss of appetite and others. If left untreated, AMS can also sometimes be fatal. To avoid AMS, one can take medications like Diamox. Most trekkers opt to take the medication from the very beginning of the trip itself, from Kathmandu.

Other factors to consider are getting properly acclimatized, maintaining a comfortable pace, being hydrated and resting if the symptoms occur. Because of this, having travel insurance is mandatory while trekking in Nepal.

It is also important to have a travel insurance policy that covers helicopter rescue and emergency evacuation in the mountains while trekking.

During the trip, you can also hire porters to carry your bag-packs. This makes trekking a lot easier. Taking this into consideration, it is also advised to pack light and to only pack the necessary things you will need during the trip.

The maximum amount a porter is capable of carrying is about 15 to 20 kg of weight max (1 porter = 2 trekkers). Similarly, the daily duration of trekking from one destination to the next is about 5 to 6 hours of trekking. The gain in elevation is much harder than the descent. That is why the initial trek to the base camp requires more stamina and longer duration than the descent back down the valley.

If you are looking for a shorter trip to Everest Base Camp, we suggest you choose our Everest Base Camp trek with helicopter return package.

What is the average cost for Everest Base Camp Adventure?

The overall cost of an all-around EBC Trek includes the cost of permits, TIMS, guide, porter, accommodation, meals, and other miscellaneous things. The cost ranges from USD 1000 to USD 1500 per foreigner for an average trek of 10 to 16 days. Of course, this is an extrapolation of the trip, and the cost varies from one travel agency to the next, as well as solo travel.

When traveling with us, the cost generally excludes travel insurance, airfares, visa fees, trekking equipment, and other personal expenses. Besides this, we include the cost of our package deals. As for meals and accommodation, the EBC Trek presents the option of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals.

Drinks during EBC Trekking

For drinking water, you have two options- either buy bottled drinking water in the mountain or use your own water purifying method, like tablets. Using one’s purification method is a lot cheaper and cost-effective than constantly buying bottled drinking water in the mountains.

The mineral water costs from USD 1 to USD 4 per bottle along the journey. The higher the elevation, the costlier things become.

Warm Tea and coffee usually cost USD 2 to USD 4. A beer bottle costs USD 5 to USD 10. In the same manner, tipping the guide and the porter isn’t mandatory, but it is appreciated. There are no specific amounts for tipping, but it depends upon your satisfaction with their work.

What should you pack for Mount Everest Base Camp?

As a non-technical trek, advanced gear or equipment is absolutely not required to trek to Everest Base Camp. Alpine Eco does recommend good condition standard trekking equipment such as; comfortable trekking boots, a down jacket, a water bottle, some warmer clothes for higher elevations, a sleeping bag, and trekking sticks are not necessary but can make your trek more comfortable.

Most of the gear can be rented or bought in Thamel, the starting point in Kathmandu for the Everest Base Camp tour. Do you need more info about what type of equipment you should bring? Don’t hesitate to visit our packing list page.

Lukla Airport Weather and Flight Delays

Due to weather related problems, it is common for your flights to be delayed. No one wants to start or end a trip to the Himalayas on a low note, right? Despite all your enthusiasm, flight delays can occur due to many issues, including the most unpredictable weather conditions. In one instance, there may be intense sunshine and within seconds, fierce winds may blow and rain may begin… read more

After a good night’s sleep and enjoying a hot breakfast, we proceed for our tour of Basantapur Durbar Square. Recorded by UNESCO as a cultural World Heritage site, Kathmandu Durbar Square is a bunch of medieval temples, palaces, courtyards and streets that date back to the 12th and 18th centuries. within this square we will find Hanumandhoka Palace Museum, Taleju Temple, Kumari Ghar (House of the Living Goddess), Kasthamandap and other temples and buildings as old as the city itself; from here we head for a tour of the famous Boudhanath Stupa {said to be the largest in the world) and a major centre of Tibetan culture in Kathmandu. The stupa is designed to be like a giant mandala (a representation of the Buddhist cosmos). We next drive down to Swayambhunath {popularly known as Monkey Temple} Swayambhu means self-created and refers to the myth that the hill sprung up suddenly from a great lake that once covered Kathmandu Valley. Our next destination is the Pashupatinath Temple. This temple is dedicated to the Hindu deity Lord Shiva and is said to be the holiest Hindu shrine in Nepal. We then wrap up our Heritage tour with a trip to Patan which is one of the three medieval cities in Kathmandu and a destination for connoisseurs of great arts. We return back to our hotel, refresh, and maybe do some shopping, have an early supper and retire to bed, most probably.

After resting well with a good night’s sleep, we wake up for an early breakfast and get into our vehicle for a drive to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport for an early morning flight to Hillary’s Lukla (2,880m/9,186ft), a gateway from where our trip begins. After a scenic 40 minute flight above the stunning green and white mountains, we reach the Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. Perhaps, this is one of the most beautiful sky zones in the world which culminates in a remarkable landing on a hillock surrounded by towering mountains peaks. On touchdown, we meet the other crew members and after some sorting and packing arrangements, we start our trek through the somewhat wealthy village of Lukla until we reach Phakding. To assist in acclimatization, we only have a short hike today. However, if you are interested in additional activities we can take a side trip to a nearby monastery. This is our first Overnight in Phakding.

Along the way, we can spot wild fauna like pheasant, musk deer, or a herd of Himalayan Thar. The trail goes gradually down up to Kayangjuma. The path eventually reaches Sanasa which is the major trail junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp. The track then follows through the pine forests and after we cross the prayer flags festooned bridge over Dudh Koshi River, we reach Phunki Thenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post amidst the alpine woods. After having a relaxed lunch at Phunki Thenga we then have a little tough climb steep up through the pine forests while before we reach Tengboche. Tengboche is a great place for close-up views of Ama-Dablam, Nuptse, and Everest and the biggest Buddhist Monastery in the Khumbu region is found here. Overnight stay at Guesthouse.

This is a day to haul up and rest without being idle. We can stroll around the village and get pally with the local folks with some interesting conversations. This will give us deep insights into the lifestyles and cultures of the local folks in this region. At the same time, we can also relish the landscapes that surround us and we can also catch up on some reading. Our acclimatization gets a further boost with our hike to Chhukung village. we then do a steep climb up to Chhukung Ri at 5550m [if we feel like it] and as we top it with gasping breath we soon realize the gritty climb was worth the go; the rewards are as lovely as it comes with the natural beauty that greets us for our efforts, the jaw-dropping vistas of Cho Oyu at 8201m, Pumori at 7161m, the gigantic Lhotse wall at 8400m, Amadablam at 6812m, Makalu at 8481m & Baruntse at 7129m all put together set our hearts on top gear as it skips a beat while watching these massive peaks.

Today is the most important part of our trip. We start early at dawn to catch the dramatic views from Kalapatthar witnessing the first light of day shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to get prepared for an early morning, dark and cold temperature (-10 to -14 C) departure beforehand. Plus there is always the potential for chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to expose itself emerging between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse. During the ascent to Kalapatthar, we can pause to catch our breath at several outstanding viewpoints to click pictures. After several hours of ascent, we reach Kalapatthar. From here, we scuttle to climb the rocky outcrop near to the summit marked by cairns and prayer flags. As we reach the top, we sit on the Kalapathar rocks and our eyes take in the unbelievable Himalayan views, wandering from one mighty massif to another. We take as many pictures as we possibly can with our camera so they can last a lifetime. After this we make our way back to Pheriche with a slow descent; for a good night’s rest which we truly deserve. Overnight at a local lodge after a great day.

The walk to Namche is truly scenic on a long winding path. En route, we will visit the traditional villages of Khumjung and Khunde. From Khumjung village, another 30-minute walk brings us to the village of Khunde. We stay overnight at our lodge in the happening Namche Bazaar.

Today, we begin to get warmed up by the light cool breeze. Although we are traveling the same route down, we enjoy completely different views. We snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendron and pine forests, and in the distance snow-covered peaks. We take time and walk at our own pace today as this is the last day of our trek. We experience the Sherpa villages' impressive faith in Buddhism and the culture of prayer stones and prayer flags while we walk through the villages. Upon arrival in Lukla, we have plenty of time to relax, stretch those aching legs, and recall the experiences of the last couple of days. We experience the culmination of a fantastic trek on a happy note with everyone back safe and sound with truly happy faces. Upon arrival in Lukla, we stroll around while our leader will re-confirm our flight ticket. In the evening, we enjoy the last dinner with our crew and make it a celebration night which calls for a great party. This is our last night on these lovely mountains that were home to us all of these weeks. After enjoying some local mountain beer [chhang – fermented millet] & enjoying a special meal, we retire for the night at our Lodge.

Today, after a hale and hearty b/fast, we fly back to Kathmandu after our long mountain journey. The early morning flight drops us in Kathmandu. We can rest and relax throughout the day at our hotel. If interested, we could buy some gifts to take home from Nepal for loved ones and friends and relatives; we can visit some nearby shops or venture out in Thamel for typical Nepalese goods. This short excursion either can be assisted by Alpine Eco Trek guides or we can do it ourselves too. If we want to explore any other areas in Kathmandu, we have to manage time for this today as well! At eventide, we will attend an exciting celebration dinner together for successfully completing our original EVEREST Base Camp trek hosted by Alpine Eco Trek. Overnight in Kathmandu, the valley of the gods.

Everest base camp trekking

We had a really great time on our Everest base camp trip and thought that our guide Ram was very responsible, organized and took great care to keep us in good health. He made sure that we paced ourselves well and took us to places that served good food, and clean accommodation. I would definitely recommend him and Alpine Eco Trek to anyone that was thinking of trekking in Nepal.

14 days enjoying the nature around from the Mount Everest

During the climb to reach the area of the EBC and Kala Patthar, every day I enjoyed the beautiful Nepalese countryside.From the beginning climbing through the area ranging from tropical trees to the cold and windy summit of Kala Patthar.

Not only the final top is something that remains in my memory, but every hour of the trek will also bring the climber in a beautiful and totally different atmosphere. Together with the guide of the Alpine Eco Trek, we enjoyed the trip from the early days till reaching the summit.

But on the way back to Lukla, I could enjoy every step. Although I had seen, the entire landscape on the journey can sometimes be better during the descent of the trip. By going back from Mount Everest to Lukla in just a few days you get a nice picture of the different levels. You can see how the different landscapes overlap. In short, these two weeks you can pull completely enjoy all the beauty that can be seen around Mount Everest.
