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.

Mount kilimanjaro I just completed the Mount kilimanjaro climb organized by Himalayan Glacier. I was supported by a fantastic guide Fromance. He ensured my safety and took me on several additional walks at the various huts where we stayed. We had fun and very interesting adventures. The rest of the team included a fantastic chef, Yona, who created spectacular dishes including a celebratory cake for us after finishing the climb. I would highly recommend anyone considering this climb to go with Himalayan Glacier

The trip of a lifetime! This was such an incredible experience! It is so difficult to describe just how majestic and breathtaking the Himalayas really are. Every single day of the trek I found myself humbled by the scale and beauty of the mountains. Himalayan Glacier absolutely outdid themselves in terms of providing us with a trek that was organised, safe, fun, and most importantly, successful in making it up to Everest Base Camp! Our guide Homnath was friendly and knowledgeable, and our porter Bhakta was such a gentle and kind man. They both helped make our trip so easy and special. I'm so so pleased that I booked this trek through this company. I think it's really important to support the local community by using a guide and Himalayan Glacier provides a comprehensive end-to-end package that gave me total peace of mind through the entire trip (from landing in Kathmandu to leaving to go back to London).

3 Passes Trek with EBC Had an amazing time trekking with Himalayan Glacier and especially my guide Ashish. The service was excellent and far exceeded expectations. Really, it was more than I could have ever imagined from start to finish. Everyone I met with and talked to at Himalayan Glacier were so kind and friendly and answered all my questions and provided great feedback about other parts of Nepal also. If you're thinking about trekking in Nepal I would highly recommend using Himalayan Glacier

Khopra Ridge - fabulous trek! Trekking to Khopra Ridge was an amazing experience! It is a little off the beaten path, which we appreciated. Not crowded at all. We felt like we had the mountains to ourselves. The trek was hard, make no mistake. But we expected that, and were delighted to challenge ourselves...and make it! We had the very best guide in all of Nepal: Pradip. He was young (30) but very experienced. He started over a decade ago with Himalayan Glacier as a porter, and is an accomplished, professional guide. He spoke excellent English and his knowledge of the terrain, culture, mountains, flowers, trees...was exhaustive. We also had the very best porter in all Nepal: Arjun. Retired from the Nepal Army, he had travelled many of places as a UN peacekeeper. He had an infectious smile and was such a great encouragement. Slow, slow, you can do it! We chose Himalayan Glacier very deliberately. We wanted a Nepalese owned company. Everyone at HG was super. They arranged every detail and everything went smoothly, from airport pick up to departure. We would both recommend Himalayan Glacier. If you want a great Nepal experience, with a Nepalese company, they are the company for you! Thank you Pradip. Thank you Arjun. Thank you HG. Hope to return and see you all again. Grace and Abbey

An awesome experience The beautiful scenery, people and culture of Nepal and the Himalayas made this trip one of the best that I have done, and I have travelled abroad a number of times. Spending time exploring the mountain villages and being amongst the locals going about their normal business was a delightful experience and the memories are now etched in my mind. The tour company, Himalayan Glacier, made the trip so easy and trouble free. From airport pick to drop off at the end of the trip I did not have to worry about a thing. The flight to Lukla, all accommodation and meals during the treck were arranged for me so I could could simply enjoy the treck in a hassle free environment. I had a large menu to chose from at all places and the food was delicious, especially the Sherpa vegetable soup. I'm planning to go back and do the Everest Base Camp treck next year with Himalayan Glacier. I strongly recommend planning to stay in Kathmandu for a few extra days after the treck in case of inclement weather delaying the flight out of Lukla. I was lucky and caught my scheduled flight but quite a few people were delayed for 1 day and 2 days as safety is paramount.

Wonderful Nepal Adventure We had a group of 5 and wanted to spend 3 weeks exploring Nepal. They designed a route that fit what we wanted to do! Than after reaching EBC, which was our big goal, Suresh our guide was able to change our plans at our request! We had wanted to do Gokyo Valley but decided to slow down and get away from the popular areas. We visited some less traveled trails with amazing views! They took super good care of us all the time.

Excellent Guide and Safe This was my first time being above 5000 metres and multiple day hike for more than 3 days. I am not that fit :p. Our guide, Ganga (Man) Bahadur Tamang ensure that we are all safe. He was joyful and full of encouragement, and really keen to make his client successful in the climbing. We all made it to the base camp and no one get sick. Man ensures all of our food and drinks are clean by entering the kitchen himself. We have the best porter too, Jiban. He assisted carrying my day bag too to help in the Chola Pass and Everest Section when he saw I am struggling. Both Man and Jiban go far and beyond to make us comfortable, enjoy the trip, and safe. Putting our guide Man phone number here, and photo. +977 984 2868506

"Mera Peak and Amphu Lumbcha Pass We did Mera Peak and Amphu Lumbcha pass October 2019 with help of Himalayan Glacier trekking company. From the beginning of planning to the very end of this adventure I couldn't be happier. People from this company are truly doing everything to make sure you are getting what you want and you leave with best possible experience. They are really professional at what they doing. My trip was tailor made according to my time frame and a budget. Communication and planning was like a talking to long time friend. Cant say enough thank you to Rayuna and Ashmii for planning and taking care of logistics in the office. At the trekking itself we had two best possible guides, Sherpa Ongchhu and Sherpa Saila, who were making sure we are safe and have the best possible experience in the mountains. This company is always doing extra step, like surprising me with a birthday cake, which sometimes means a lot, especially when you'e far away from home. Thank You Ashmii for that. And of course big Thank you to the owner of this company Mr. Sagar. He was realy doing for me much more then he should. He makes me feel like I'm part of his family, like a brother. Thank You again. Bottom line this company learn it's reputation and it is highly recommended. I've been working with them several times and I will work with them again on my next adventure.

Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trek Our group of five had an amazing time hiking to EBC! The Luxury Lodge option is definitely worth it as we slept in comfortable beds (sometimes with heating pads) and took hot showers almost daily. The meals provided were tasty, had a wide variety and large quantities. Both accommodations and food exceeded our expectations. We are so thankful to our guide and assistant guide - Shankar and Bhakta as well as 3 porters. They were professional, patient, had great communication and our guides were literally there for us every step of the way. Shankar even brought extra goodies for us like cookies and fresh fruit... and surprised us with cakes for my birthday and a wedding anniversary! We couldn’t have asked for a better crew. I would highly recommend booking with Himalayan Glacier for treks and tours in Nepal. Nepal will forever hold a special place in our hearts as my boyfriend proposed to me at EBC! Thank you HGTA for a memorable experience!

Nepal and Bhutan Tour Thank you to Himalayan Glacier wonderful staff and guides for an amazing experience !!! Everyone was very welcoming and helpful . The tours in Kathmandu were so insightful and I experienced a new culture and people . I learned so much along the journey , but the best is always getting to know our faraway neighbors !! The food was great, all the hotels were very nice . As a shopper who loves collecting regional crafts , Kathmandu was simply an amazing place to gather things to bring home and enjoy. Arriving in Bhutan we were warmly greeted by Norbu and Tenzing who gave us an amazing tour of Bhutan! Before our journey began we got to have dinner with departing guests and we all laughed , ate and enjoyed great conversation!! Paul and Debra. PS get a Nepal Visa beforehand if possible!!

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).

Everest Base Camp trek is best done in pre-monsoon season i.e. from March to May and post-monsoon season i.e. from late September to December. 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.

Hello HG.  Now that I have returned from Nepal and life is back to (boring) normal I wanted to give HG and all of its people a fantastic shout out!  My brother and I had an amazing Trek to EBC.  HG's planning throughout every stage of this trip was better than could be expected.  From the airport pickup, hotel choice, the guide, the Teahouse stays, and all the way through to dropping us back off at the airport at the very end.  Hg did a fantastic job and gave us very close attention.  Our guide, Shanker, was fantastic.  He attended to us every day and never was not there to help us in any way possible and we both made the journey without any problems thanks to him.  We are 100 percent pleased with our decision to use HG for this trip.  In a sea of Trekking companies to choose from, they were the perfect boat.  We would tell anyone else who is shopping for a trekking company to use HG, and we would never return to Nepal without having them as our tour/trek operators.  great job to everyone at HG.  Cheers, Craig McDowell

To review the trip of a lifetime.

Where does one begin? From the very first decision to venture to the other side of the world, the Universe tested our focus & determination to stay on the path. My girlfriend & I went through such crazy experiences as; delayed local flights, missed international flights, internationally-delayed baggage, a broken (soleless) hiking boot, severe knee injuries.. and all of this happened before we even stepped foot in Nepal.Ever-trusting, and absolutely delighted by the divine-comedy of it all, Amber & I arrived in Kathmandu 30 hours later than planned, missing our original expidition, as well as half of our gear & clothing. Luckily for us, Himalayan Glaciar had a backup plan. Narayan & the team sent our new guide, Dol, to pick us up from the airport. Thanks to some quick coordinations, we were able to grab a new pair of hiking boots, and pick up the delayed bag with a late-night trip to the airport. That night, we re-planned our EBC trek, skipping a rest day in order to finish in time for our international return flights.The very next morning, we were faced with the decision to continue waiting for our weather-delayed flight to Lukla, with the looming possibility of losing another day to finish the EBC trek... Or purchase helicopter tickets (more quick thinking by Dol) to get us started on our trek that same day. We obviously made the jump and hopped on the first Heli to the Himalayas!So Amber & I set out on the trek of a lifetime with our awesome guide Dol & newly met porter, Fullman. Embarking on an incredible journey that humbled us to the core and taught us how to trust the path, stay present, and to be grateful. There were many, many times that Dol's problem solving and HGT's connections saved our skins; medication for sickness, last-minute lodging (our whole trip had to be re-booked on the go), and much-needed advice in super cold conditions... We started as a team but truly became a family on the trip.On the day celebrated as Buddhas birthday & enlightenment (Nepalese full moon in May), Amber & I made it to Everest Base Camp, where we proposed & became engaged to each other. I honestly don't think we could have safely achieved this in the speedy time that we did without Dol, Fullman, and the team at Himalayan Glacier Trekking. You'd better believe that we flew down the mountain feeling as accomplished & elated as a Tibetan monk reaching his goal of nirva.My humble advice: Forget the destination, trust the path you are on, and the people around you. You're all there for a reason.Namaste
