On the initial day of your arrival in Kathmandu, you will be welcomed with a lovely cuisine dinner prepared with a Nepali hint and a comfy accommodation which will be followed by a pre-trek briefing which is scheduled on the trekking program alongside any last-minute arrangements which shall be discussed. While you are here on the very early stage of the trek, you can get familiar with short hikes down the streets. The day forms its conclusion with your first overnight rest in the valley of Nepali people, its authenticity and culture.

  • Meals: Welcome Dinner
  • Accommodation: Hotel
  • Place: Kathmandu
  • Altitude: 1300m

We come a little bit ahead of our initial phase of the trek and get involved with the gorgeous beauty of Kathmandu. The second day marks our day trip on which you will be exploring around on an organized sightseeing tour to world heritage sites with our professional touring guide. The day includes a visit to an ancient and beautiful Boudhanath Stupa known for its exceptional structure and as the biggest shrines in the world. For a more cheerful day, a visit to Pashupatinath, situated on the banks of the holy Bagmati River that is considered to be a home to the hundreds of thousands Hindu people identified will certainly grace us.

The cremation site here in Pashupatinath temple is open to all the citizens of Nepal no matter the class and background. On the same afternoon you will be free to relax to hotel garden or take a visit to the beautiful Thamel for some last minute shopping before leaving the city. Later, trek departure information will be provided.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast
  • Accommodation: Hotel
  • Place: Kathmandu
  • Altitude: 1300m

In the early morning of the third day, we take a fantastic flight to Lukla situated at 2827m. The average flight time is regarded to be about 40 minutes to the airstrip. This flight gives you box office views of some of the breathtaking mountains in the world, right from the windows of your plane. After the successful landing, we will use our precious time to explore the unique and lovely village while the Sherpa crews sort out the trekking equipments.

In the afternoon of the same day, we begin our walk through a descent downwards the Dudh Kosi River, where we join the main trail to Namche Bazaar, just above Chaurikharka at 2713m. The walking is easier in comparison and as we head through the tiny village of Ghat located at 2550m, it’s a very short walk to our first local village of Phakding where we’ll be resting for the night.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea.
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Phakding
  • Altitude: 2652m

Starting off from Phakding, we cross a beautiful river stream and head up towards the valley where we’ll spot porters from the south shipping supplies to Namche. The way gathers close to the river valley and is lined with beautiful blue pine and rhododendron which forms a beautiful forest that is really mesmerizing in the months of spring when the flowers are dazzling with colors.

We cross the Dudh Kosi at Benkar where we can gain the earliest glimpses of the snow peaks Kusum Kanguru (6369m) and Thamserku (6623m).Eventually; it is only a short walk to Monjo (2835m) where we will probably be reaching in time for lunch. Later, in the night, we spend our time in Monjo in the afternoon and separate some time for ourselves to explore the amazing villages there. The day has been well planned and prepared to keep it short to aid acclimatization.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Manjo
  • Altitude: 2835m

On day 5, the hiking is kind of roughshod and includes the steep walk to Namche Bazaar. From Monjo, it is a very small or shorter walk to the entrance of the mysterious National Park before we cross the Dudh Kosi to Jorsale at 2805m. The trek forwards to the upstream on a generally flat terrain leading to the confluence of the Bhote Kosi and Dudh Kosi rivers. From here, we begin the steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. After we cross a wide suspension bridge high above the river, we gradually ascend at a firm pace towards Namche. Amazing photographic opportunities can be found as the great mountains of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Taweche (6542m) come into view for the first time. Then after reaching at the capital Namche, we’ll have lunch. 

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Namche Bazar
  • Altitude: 3446m

We remain at Namche for a second night to allow for proper acclimatization to get our bones set for the higher elevations to come. Namche is a bustling prosperous village that’s now become more like a town, situated in a large protected hollow. It achieved its importance during the period when Tibetan salt was traded for the lowland grains of Nepal. This day, a limited amount of trade subsist at Namche and Tibetans are often seen in the village trading rugs and Chinese-made goods, clothing, salt and dried meat. It is suggested that you take the opportunity to see both the sunrise and sunset views from the National Park Headquarters above the village. The view is marvelous and offers a superb panorama of the Khumbu peaks with great views of Everest. After breakfast, there are a number of choices: perhaps a walk towards Thami (3810m) above the scenic Bhote Khola river valley, or a visit to the National Park Headquarters to see the intriguing displays of Sherpa lifestyle and culture. You can see a mountaineering display and details of the park’s flora and fauna. Your guides will be on hand to offer advice and escort you on your walks.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Namche Bazar
  • Altitude: 3446m

The path outlines around Khumbilya's lower slopes, moving through lovely birch forest and on to treeless, grassy slopes to a stupa-3992m on top of a rocky ridge at Mongla. Eventually, the eyeshot of the mountains is magnificent. Across the valley, Phortse can be seen and a chocolate box village set in a patchwork of stone-walled fields. You descend on a series of switchback trails to the Dudh Kosi River, 300 meters below, at Phortse Bridge from the stupa & cross the Dudh Kosi and for overnight under a moonlit night you ascend to the village of Phortse.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, and 1 dinner with coffee/tea
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Phortse
  • Altitude: 3850m

In distinction to Phortse, we go up through the high ridge of Imja khola. On the way keep an eye open for Blood and Danphe Pheasant, Musk Deer and, high on the steep slopes of the valley, the Himalayan Thar. Gradually moving upwards and downwards to the village of Pangboche where the peak of Ama Dablam dominates the skyline. Lunch will be taken here and perhaps sight the beautiful monastery that once housed the legendary Yeti scalp. In the noon, our route ascends gradually, high above the Imja Khola, passing the tea houses at Orsho before crossing the Imja Khola and old glacial moraines to our lodge in the settlement of Dingboche.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, and 1 dinner with coffee/tea
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Dingboche
  • Altitude: 4084m

On day 9, starting from Dingboche we head up through the village, following the Imja Khola valley. The climb is gradual, crossing small streams, through open alpine pastures with fine views of Island Peak at the head of the valley. We will make it to the Chukhung lodge in time for lunch, with the afternoon free to rest and acclimatize. If you feel boosted enough, you can head up the valley towards the old moraines that flow down from Lhotse. The sight of the massive Lhotse Wall and Ama Dablam are particularly impressive hereabouts.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Chhukung
  • Altitude: 4780m
After a sunny breakfast in the morning, we ascend the small ridge behind the village above the Pheriche valley. From the Chorten at the top, the Taweche and Cholatse (6440m) peaks make for a striking scene as they seem to lean forwards from across the valley in the west. To the north, Lobuje Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of the Cho La dominate the skyline. The walking is now fairly flat on wide-open fields, but do take your time and ensure you are well hydrated. We cross the Khumbu Khola at Dughla (4620m) in the morning, and have a light lunch at the foot of the huge moraines of the Khumbu Glacier flowing off Everest. In the noon, there is a solid and quite steep climb on a rocky trail to the top of the moraines. On the peak of the ridge, we pass a line of memorial cairns which were built in memory of the Sherpas and climbers who have died on various Everest expeditions over the last 50 years.

From here there are magnificent sights of Pumori 7145m, Lingtren 6697m, Khumbutse 6623m, and, across the border in Tibet, Changtse 7550m, can be seen at the head of the valley. Everest is still concealed behind the towering walls of Nuptse and Lhotse. We comply the valley stream to our lodge at Lobuje. Today is a taxing day but the fantastic scenery makes it all very worthwhile. In the early afternoon we arrive, if you still have some energy and conditions are clear, a walk up onto the large ridge at the rear of the inn can reward you with even more fabulous views.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea.
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Lobuche
  • Altitude: 4930m

After Lobuche, we comply the broad valley running parallel to the Khumbu glacier. A gradual climb enables you to build the slow, steady rhythm required when walking at high altitude. Once we reach the moraines of the Changri Nup Glacier we make a series of small ascents and descents over a rocky trail lined with cairns that leads eventually to the startling glacial sands of Gorak Shep where we will stay overnight. We’ll arrive in time for lunch and a quick rest before setting off for Everest Base Camp. The path can sometimes lead in difficulty to follow so keep an eye on your guides and fellow trekkers on this section.

The trek to base camp can be achieved in around three hours. In the popular climbing period of March to May if you are trekking, we’ll almost certainly encounter yaks and porters supplying food and equipment to Everest expeditions. From base camp we do not get views of Everest but we will be able to see the notorious Everest Ice Fall that flows from the Western Cwm. This is considered as the technically hardest and most dangerous section of the mountain.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, and 1 dinner with coffee/tea
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Gorekshep
  • Altitude: 5160m

In the early morning, we will make a steep ascent to Kala Patar. You will need to begin very slowly and try to ascend at a steady rhythmic pace. Our aim, Kala Patar, is the rocky hilltop below Pumori. It is a difficult walk due to the altitude but the view from the top is a spectacle to remember for a lifetime. It might take a good hour and a half to reach the summit from Gorak Shep, although lower viewpoints will provide views almost as good. We are surrounded by Pumori, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam, Taweche, Kantega and Everest. The area of Everest Base Camp can be seen in a bowl at the bottom of the Khumbu Ice Fall about 3kms away in distance and some 200m below. For most of the trekkers, reaching Kala Patar is a very emotional experience and it is worthwhile spending as long as you can to relish this special moment. The climb back down to Gorak Shep is easy.

Today it is downhill most of the way, as we retrace our steps to Duglha and descend to Pheriche. A trekkers’ aid post here by The Himalayan Rescue Association has and it is quite interesting to visit. After finishing lunch, we cross the Khumbu Khola on a wooden suspension bridge and follow the valley to Pheriche. The climb downwards through Lobuche to Pheriche and on a clear day, there are still stunning views of silver grey mountain landscapes that gleam in the sunshine.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea.
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Pheruche
  • Altitude: 4252m

After Lobuche, we retrace our steps to Dughla. It seems much quicker and easier going down. To our ascent, we take a distinct path following the wide alpine valley covered in scrub juniper through to the temporary settlement of Phulung Karpo (4343m) and then to Pheriche for the evening. A Trekkers' Aid Post can be seen here, supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association which, although not manned year round, is well worth a visit if open.

We cross the Khumbu Khola after Pheriche, and ascend a short steep trail to the top of a small ridge for great views of the Imja valley, Ama Dablam and Kantega. We move downward to the small settlements at Orsho and Shomare, where we have lunch and later pass through Lower Pangboche to reach the suspension bridge over the Imja Khola River and backtrack our steps to Deboche and Thyangboche.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea.
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Tangboche
  • Altitude: 3875m
After the early breakfast, we move downward steeply through beautiful forests of juniper, rhododendron and fir to Phunkitenga. Following a welcome break and perhaps a cup of tea we cross the Dudh Kosi, and climb upward to Trashinga.

The route contours above the valley through Shanasa and its then a gradual walk to Namche Bazaar where we have lunch and descend to Manjo for an overnight stay.

  • Meals: 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner with coffee/tea
  • Accommodation: Lodge
  • Place: Manjo
  • Altitude: 3440m

This day marks the final day of the Everest Base camp trekking. The walk won’t last for long as it is very brief way towards the valley leading us to our final climb up to the airstrip at Lukla. We will be served with delicious lunch at the lodge, having enough time to wander around in the evening. We will be having a few celebratory drinks as a part of our farewell dinner. It has indeed been a beautiful and a happy trip on these rugged yet extraordinary mountains; we then enjoy a great meal and hit the sack in blissful sleep under a moonlit starry sky…what a wonderful world!

FAQs

The ultimate height is 5,500 meters which is the elevation of Everest Base Camp. Our target is to reach all the way to EBC, however in case of difficulty in trekking, we might lower our target.

It is comparatively challenging to other treks in Nepal but it is conquerable with will and effort. The elevations can come off as the greatest challenges along with the changing weather conditions but with our properly planned itinerary, all the challenges can be conquered.

Helicopters will be used for severe cases whereas for other cases of one needing rescue, the trekking team will use their experience to help you get to the safe area and get all the necessary treatments you need.

Rather be aware than worried; to be aware and concerned will be a good way to go rather than panicking or worrying about Altitude Sickness in Everest. There will be proper acclimatization days which will help you in getting used to the greater elevations and avoid extreme sickness. We will be doing exercises and certain trainings on how to deal with the sickness or mostly, how to avoid it, so it’s better to feel confident and prepared than be worried.

You will be compulsorily requiring two special permits for legal travel which are;

Trekker’s Information Management Systems (TIMS) card

Sagarmatha National Park Permit (SNPP)

However, permits to certain areas like national parks will be taken care by your guide.

You will have the power to delay or cancel your flight only within a certain period of time which shall be mentioned in the contract, otherwise fines shall be imposed. Likewise, there might occur the delaying and cancellation of flights in case of state emergencies, political instability, weather conditions and others. So, we will be asking you to maintain your patience and trust us in the times of emergency. We will always be striving to do what is best for your travel experience.

Depends upon the destination you are targeting for. However, Everest Base Camp Trekking is a Package trip which includes guides as well. Likely to that, having a guide makes you assured of your security and safety.
