Trek to the Mount Everest base camp and enjoy the grandest walk in the land of the Himalayas

Everest Base Camp Short Trek takes us to the backyard of the world famous Sherpas, their faith in Buddhism, Namche Bazaar, the Sagarmatha National Park, the mightiest viewpoint of Kala Patthar and the Everest Base Camp itself. Mount Everest base camp trekking takes us to Tengboche Monastery which is the highest monastery in the Khumbu region of Nepal and come close to four of the world’s six tallest peaks: Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Cho-Oyu. We begin our hike to the Everest base camp with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla equipped with all necessary permits and trekking gears.

Our 14-day trek to Everest base camp is a great option for travelers who are pressed for time and are looking forward to almost similar amenities under the cost inclusion section as the 16-day trek. Hikers who are physically fit, in good health, and have a little experience with high altitude walks can sign up for this trip. But, if you are a novice trekker who is in good health and average physical fitness, and if you wish to enjoy easy trek then Everest View Trek – 12 Days might be right for you. For more experienced hikers who wish to take up more challenge and “”stay off the beaten path”, then Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes – 18 Days would be an ideal choice.

everest base camp packing list - duffel bag

What to pack on the Everest base camp trek?

Everest base camp trek is a lodge-to-lodge trek. It is also known as a teahouse trek. It means that you will not be required to sleep in camping tents and most of the facilities like laundry, food, etc. are easily available throughout the trek. However, you need to carry some of the most essential items that you will personally require during the trek. As Everest base camp trek is considered quite challenging, we recommend packing only the necessary gears and required equipment. Make sure that you don’t over-pack, and at the same time don’t under-pack.

In order to enjoy the trip rather than worry about the weight of your load, you need to pack light only with the essentials. Read the complete Everest base camp trek packing list and pack smart and light for a more comfortable and a fulfilling trip to the base camp.

FAQs

The short Everest Base Camp trek is a moderate/demanding trek that does not require any technical expertise of mountaineering. It is basically a long hike up to the altitude of 5,364 meters / 17,599 feet. The trek is only grueling because of its duration of 12 days hike up and down the hill across diverse terrains (14 days including arrival and departure).

The best time to trek Everest Base Camp is the months of spring (March-May) and fall (October- November) when the weather is favorable and perfect for high altitude climbing. These seasons offer a crystal-clear mountain view with a clear sky. It is also possible to do this trek in February and early September but the trek is best preferred during the above months.

Absolutely yes! Under normal circumstances, our booked trips are guaranteed to run. You will still be doing your trek even if other trekkers cancel their trip. This is the reason why Himalayan Glacier is different from other agencies, who usually cancel their whole trip a month or even a week before the trip date. We are a tailor-made company and the number of participants does not stop our operation. If your trip has been canceled by your operator and you are in a last-minute stress, remember to find us to sort out your trip decisions. Please feel free to book your stress-free holidays with us. Unless there is a situation which is out of control such as a political riot, natural disaster, pandemic, epidemic or weather catastrophes, our trips are 100% guaranteed to run.

Himalayan Glacier offers a lifetime deposit policy which allows you the flexibility to transfer your deposit to anyone or any other trip. If you wish to cancel your booked trips, certain cancelation charges apply. Please visit our booking terms and conditions for detailed information.

You will be guided by our experienced trek leaders who have been to the base camp and back multiple times for years. All our guides are locals who communicate very well in English and acquire deep knowledge of the mountain, people, culture, health, hygiene, and most importantly your safety.

Everest Base Camp trek is a lodge-to-lodge trek. Unlike the Kilimanjaro climb, you will not be sleeping in tents but at teahouses or lodges. Although it may not be as cold an experience as in Kilimanjaro but again, you need to be prepared with the right clothes. Please visit our comprehensive Clothing packing lists for Everest Base Camp trek.
