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

Embark on an unforgettable adventure with the Everest Base Camp Trek, a 16-day Himalayan journey that offers breathtaking mountain views and insights into Sherpa culture. Our journey begins with a thrilling flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, a small town in the Khumbu region that serves as the gateway to the Everest region.

From Lukla, we’ll trek through stunning Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and arrive at Namche Bazaar, a bustling Sherpa village located at an altitude of 3,440 meters. We’ll spend a night or two in Namche Bazaar, exploring the local markets and monasteries while acclimating ourselves to the high altitude.

After Namche Bazaar, we’ll continue our trek to Tengboche monastery , one of the most important Buddhist monasteries in the region, with breathtaking views of Everest and other peaks. Along the way, we’ll immerse ourselves in Sherpa culture and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Himalayas.

From Tengboche, we’ll trek to the base camp of Mount Everest, following in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on their historic journey in 1953. We’ll also trek to the summit of Kala Patthar for breathtaking panoramic views of Everest and other Himalayan peaks.

This high altitude trekking experience is not for the faint of heart, but with proper preparation and an expert Sherpa guide, you’ll be able to complete this incredible journey. The Everest Base Camp Trek is an adventure of a lifetime, perfect for those seeking outdoor activities and adventure travel. Join us on this epic journey and experience the wonder of the Himalayas, from the Sherpa culture to the awe-inspiring beauty of Mount Everest.

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 base camp trek 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 base camp trek  varies at different locations.

 

Experience Required

Everest Base Camp Trek- 16 days is a moderate trek. Travelers who can walk up to 6-7 hours a day on an uphill and downhill trail will find this trek fulfilling. It is best that we prepare ourselves for the Everest trek by jogging and exercising regularly at least a month prior to the start of the trek. Trekking to the Everest Base Camp should be relatively easier for those who have experience walking/trekking in a high altitude environment. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is also important that we consult our doctor. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Himalayan Glacier before booking the trek.

Acclimatization

Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Experts agree that gaining elevation without proper consideration of AMS could be fatal. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. Therefore, our body needs time to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude thus resulting in a successful trip.

Team Composition

For this trek there will be one leader, assistant leader (4 trekkers: 1 assistant guide) and Sherpa porters for carrying luggage (2 trekkers: 1 porter). This arrangement ensures that should anybody in the group get sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned. We can run the trek for groups of any size but we after years of experience we have found a maximum of twelve people to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you'd like to book this trip for a larger group then that can be arranged too.

DATES & PRICES

All our published dates are guaranteed departures. If the dates don’t match with your travel plans, we are more than happy to create your desired date. Let us know what kind of trip you are looking for and our travel experts will help plan your tailor-made trips in your dream destination.

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.
