An epic journey from Kathmandu to the Mount Everest base camp

On Everest Base Camp Trek-16 days we experience astounding mountain views, get glimpses of the life of the world famous mountain climbers (the Sherpas), enter Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site and tour high altitude Buddhist monasteries. Among several others, Tengboche monastery has a religious significance to the Buddhists. A night or two in Namche Bazaar allows proper acclimatization for a comfortable hiking experience.

Trekking to the Everest Base Camp of Nepal also provides us an opportunity to embark on an epic journey that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set off to in 1953. Our Sherpa will guide us to the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain, Everest on an adventurous trek package that also includes climbing Kala Patthar to admire the panoramic views of Everest and other Himalayas.

Nothing beats the thrill and sense of accomplishment that grips hikers on seeing the power and grace of the mighty mountain up close.

overlay
  • Embark on a thrilling flight with scenic views from Kathmandu to Lukla
  • Visit the antique Tengboche Monastery at 3,870 meters
  • Walk to the foothills of the world’s highest mountain Everest at 5364 meters
  • Savor the panoramic views of the Himalayas including Everest from Kala Patthar

Is the Everest Base Camp trek appropriate for me?

The 16-day Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary is designed for beginner trekkers who are in good health with average physical fitness. The ample distance covered between daily itineraries, steady gain of altitude and separate rest days ensures that we are properly acclimatized to fully enjoy our trek to the Everest base camp. Walking at high altitude trails with proper acclimatization and steady pace will help avoid getting the altitude sickness

But, if you wish to take up a bigger challenge offered by our agency, Himalayan Glacier and walk along the rugged trails, then Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes – 18 Days would be ideal. Another option for experienced trekkers with limited time would be Everest Base Camp Short Trek – 14 Days.

Food on Everest Base Camp Trek

All meals will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners for guests. While on trek, we have breakfast and dinner in the lodges/teahouses we spend the night and lunch on our way to the next destination. Nepalese, Tibetan, the more common continental and Indian cuisines are common choices in the menu.

To get an idea about your meals on the go, breakfast comprises a hot beverage, toasts, pancakes, eggs, etc. while lunch will include rice items, noodles, potato varieties, pizza, pasta, burger, meat items, and so on. The starters in dinnertime are soup varieties while the main course includes more or less similar items as that of lunch menu, including a dessert item and a hot beverage. A detailed information about the food on the Everest trekking gives you a clearer picture of your dietary provisions.

Note: Trekkers who strictly follow vegetarian or vegan diet must inform us during the time of booking their trip with us. We recommend you to avoid any alcoholic beverages during the trip. Also, we advise you to avoid meat items because meat has to be carried all the way from Lukla or Namche for several days before it is consumed. So, there is more possibility of staleness, just enough to upset your tummy!

Accommodation During Everest Base Camp Trek

We will be accommodated in  Yatri Suites & Spa or Similar in Kathmandu; and lodges during the trek. All accommodations are on twin-shared basis. Single supplement will be served on request with an extra cost.

Himalayan Glacier will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, lodges in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and the trekking regions at lower elevation but it might be difficult to find them at higher elevations. The types and standards of accommodation during the Everest trekking varies at different locations.

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

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.
