Mt. Everest Base Camp Trekking is an adventurous trek which takes you to the base of the World’s highest Mountain “Mount Everest”. You will be amused by the stunning Himalayan peaks visible while walking in the routes of Base Camp. This two weeks trek will not only provide you an opportunity to have the panoramic views of Mountains but you will also get to know the local culture, customs and tradition of Sherpas, who are well known for mountain climbing and trekking.

Mt. Everest (8848 m), being in the top of the world fascinates its trekkers by its awe inspiring charm. Mt. Everest Base Camp Trekking takes us to the backyard of the world famous Sherpas, the culture of colorful prayer flags and Buddhism, the quaint Namche Bazaar, the Sagarmatha National Park, the mightiest view point-Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp itself. This trek allows you to see many stunning Himalayan peaks from a low elevation in a short time period. You can also have magnificent views of Mountains which lies above 8,000 meters; Mt. Everest (8848 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m), Mt. Makalu (8481 m), and Cho-Oyu (8201 m). You will have a lifetime adventure while trekking to Everest. Miles away from the busy lifestyle, cars, conveniences, and daily luxuries, you’ll saturate your spirit in natural beauty and stretch your personal endurance beyond what you thought was possible.

Mt. Everest Base Camp Trekking is especially designed for those trekkers who want to spend a day in a lap of the World’s Tallest Mountain. The whole trek is covered around 14 days for those trekkers having good physical health, normal hiking/trekking experience and who can walk up to 6-7 hours per day without any difficulties. Laying foundation for our trek, we fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827 m). The most scenic and the most dangerous flight you will ever have. After landing up in Lukla airport, you will be introduced with our porter (We will hire guide in Kathmandu only) and then commence trek to Phakding. The next day, you will ascend through the Dudh Koshi valley to the Sherpa Settlement of Namche Bazaar, an official capital of Sherpas. This is a small town in east part of Everest region where you can enjoy the local Yak cheese. In this town, we will stay for two nights to give a proper acclimatization to our body since many of the trekkers suffer from heath issues related to high altitude. Then our trail respectively ascend to Tyangboche walking through the lovely forest and then to Dingboche. Enroute, you will be rewarded with the views of Everest soaring behind Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama-Dablam, Kangtega and Tawache peaks. Our second rest day will be in Dingboche, where we can have a short hike up to Chukung and then descend down to Dingboche for overnight stay. Crossing over the suspension bridge, passing through Lobuche, several Buddhist monasteries and Sherpa villages, you will finally reach to the Base camp. You can spend a night over the camp in a tent or continue your trek towards Gorakshep. As you walk towards the higher altitude, you will feel that the air is getting thinner and thinner. The trail now descends from Kalapatthar, Pheriche & Phortse. From Phortse, you will retrace your footsteps back to Namche bazaar, Phakding and finally to Lukla. Spending an overnight into Lukla, you will fly to Kathmandu the next day.

Everest Base Camp

For foreign travelers, Everest Base Camp has become one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal, offering the chance to gaze on the magnificent north face of the world’s highest peak Mount Everest. Famous for its amazing mountain peaks and the loyalty and friendliness of its inhabitants Sherpa, the Everest Region is one of the most famous destinations for tourists in Nepal. While several routes through the mountains are difficult, there are plenty of places to rest and enjoy meal along the way. Trekking is possible the whole year round in this area. The best time to trek is from the beginning of March to May and from September to November. The winter is very cold and snow may make it difficult to travel higher than Tengboche, and lodges may be closed above this altitude. Summers, are wet and the spectacular peaks are often lost in the clouds. April and early May is a good time to view the hedgerows and trees stuffed into bloom, with Rhododendron, in particular, adding a spectacular spray of color to the landscape.

Everest Base Camp is a term that is used to describe two base camps which are on opposite sides of Mount Everest. South Base Camp is in Nepal side with an altitude of 5,364 m. and North Base Camp is in Tibet side at 5,150 m. These camps are basic campsites on Mount Everest that are used by mountain climbers during their ascent and descent.

Route to Everest Base Camp

Lukla – Phakding – Namche Bazaar – Tyangboche – Dingboche – Lobuche – Everest Base Camp – Gorakshep – Kalapather – Pheriche – Phortse -Namche – Phakding – Lukla

From Kathmandu we fly to Lukla, and the adventure begins as we land at its small runway. We can spend several days trekking through the homelands of the Sherpa people, among the most attractive mountains in Nepal. A day is spent at Namche Bazaar, the bustle market town in the heart of Sherpa country, and at Pheriche a bunch of houses set among the high summer grazing pasture of the region. The rest days allow time to explore further and to adjust, an important factor in your enjoyment of the trekking. Those who fully acclimatize may trek to the Everest Base Camp but without hesitation, the highlight for most will be the admiration inspiring views which unfold from the summit of Kala Pattar – the disordered ice sculptures of the Khumbu Glacier, Nuptse and south-west face of Everest itself. Not forgetting, the personal sense of achievement that many experience at the end of this trek, when it is all over and we fly back to Kathmandu.

From EBC you can observe refreshing spectacular view of numerous dangling mountains including Everest and typical Sherpa land with typical house and landscape. Therefore, Everest Base Camp Trek is taken as the best and most popular trekking routes in Nepal as well as in the world. From Kalapatthar we can view the most wonderful sunrise views on the Mt. Everest. Scenery and conversing of the Snow River, avalanche and white dazzling snowcapped peaks including Mt. Everest from the top of Kalapatthar will enchant you and take you to the world of frantically making your journey a memorable one in your whole life.

Mt. Everest (Top of the World)

Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world. Its height is 8,848 meters. Its alternate names are Sagarmatha, Qomolangma, and Chomolungma. Mt. Everest lies on the border of Nepal and China, with half of the mountain lying on each side of the borders. Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay first climbed Mt. Everest in 1953, with Hillary taking the photograph of Tenzing Norgay in the summit.

There are several bodies still lying on the upper portions of the mountain above the South Col on the Nepal side and the North East Ridge on the Tibetan side. There are 2 main routes, Southeast and Northeast, for climbing the Mt. Everest. Southeast is most frequently used route because it is generally considered safer and with easier access. Ascent via the southeast ridge begins with a trek to Base Camp at 5,380 meters on the south side of Everest in Nepal. Expedition members usually fly to Lukla (2,860 m.) from Kathmandu and pass through Namche Bazaar. Climbers then hike to Everest Base Camp, which usually takes 6 to 8 days, allowing for proper altitude adjustment in order to prevent altitude sickness. Climbing accessories and supplies are carried by yaks, dzopkyos (yak hybrids) and human porters to Everest Base Camp on Khumbu Glacier. In recent years, mountain climbers and explorers have been paying attention on Mt. Everest. It has become many brave people’s dreams to demonstrate their courage and skills by climbing onto the world’s highest peak. The weather is comparatively mild and steady with less rain or snow early March to late May, and again so from early September to late October. These are the two best seasons for tourists and mountain climbers.

Tengboche Monastery

Tengboche Monastery also known as Dawa Choling Gompa is in the Tengboche village in Khumjung in the Khumbu Region of Eastern Nepal. It is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery of the Sherpa community situated at 3,867 m. The monastery is the largest Gompa in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It was built in 1916 by Lama Guru with strong links to its mother monastery known as Rongbuk Monastery located in Tibet. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1934 and was consequently rebuilt. In 1989, it was destroyed again by a fire and then rebuilt with the help of volunteers and international support.

Tengboche is famous because of its spectacular and distinctive location. It lies on the main route to the Everest Base Camp of Mt. Everest and offers the first clear views of the highest mountain in the world. Tengboche became famous to the world after Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay Sherpa made the first ascent of Mt. Everest in 1953. A lot has been changed since those days when Tengboche was remote and inaccessible. Today more than 30,000 people come ever year to enjoy the beauty of Tengboche and splendor of the mountains.

From Tengboche there are spectacular views of some of the world’s highest mountains including Nuptse (7,855m), Ama Dablam (6,812m), Lhotse (8,516m), Kangtega (6,779m), Thamserku (6,623m) and as well as the many others that form one of the most inspiring ranges of snow mountains anywhere. The ice walls of these mountains control the landscape and avalanches can normally be heard rumbling high up the glaciers.

Cho La Pass

Cho La is a summit pass located 5,420 meter in the Solukhumbu District in northeastern Nepal. It lies 17,782 feet above sea level. It connects the village of Dzongla (4830 m) to the east and the village of Thagnag (4700 m) to the west. The pass is on Gokyo trail, one of the popular and challenging trekking trails in Khumbu Everest Region in Nepal. To the West the trail continues to the Gokyo Lake crossing Ngozumpa glacier on the way. To the East the trail joins Everest Base Camp trek. The pass can be physically demanding and may require crampons on the top of a slippery glacier. The boundary of the glacier is unstable. There is a glacier at the top of Cho La that has the crevasse widening a lot recently. People have to stick to one of the sides with huge boulder hopping. During December, the face is covered with snow, making it extremely slippery. Cho La pass trek has got several numbers of attractions, chief of which are the spectacular scenery, the unique culture of the Sherpa people of the Solukhumbu, the region where Mt. Everest and its attendant lesser peaks are located. The trail is perfect choice for those trekkers who have a little more time and want to add a couple of classic Himalayan high passes onto the Everest Base camp trek. Whether you’re a seasoned trekker or new to Nepal, the Cho La trek is sure to stay in your memory for a lifelong.

On this day, we will have our breakfast at Phakding and then gear up for the trek to Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar was once a small village but since grown in size to accommodate the influx of trekkers, and now is the unofficial capital of the Sherpas. It was once an important trading centre on the route from Tibet to Nepal but has now been largely given over to catering for the needs of trekkers.


Our trail takes us first over the Dudh Koshi River via a long suspension bridge, and then through a beautiful pine forest to Monjo, about two hours away. Soon thereafter, we will approach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park for a brief permit check and then descend to Dudh Koshi River (spotting Mani stones along the way!) en route to Jorsale. Lunch will be served here, and then it’s uphill to Namche. Our path along the riverbank is flanked by two crossings, one of which is the Hillary Suspension Bridge. It’s a tough climb up the hill to our resting place, but you’ll be rewarded in Namche Bazaar with your first glimpse of Everest in its majesty. For acclimatization, we suggest you to spend 2 nights in or around Namche.

On the following day, we will take a well-deserved rest to acclimatize, which gives the opportunity to explore some of the less developed and more traditional villages in the area.

You can also check out the Sherpa museum for an overview of the Sherpa culture and history of mountaineering. On Saturdays, the Local Market is open for trading and an intimate look at the locals’ marketplace. It is part of the larger Namche Bazaar, a shopping hub filled with all manner of trekking and mountaineering clothing and equipment. Easier options for passing the acclimatization day can be found by visiting the twin Sherpa villages of Khumjung and Khunde, which are about a 2 hour walk above Namche. While in Khunde, visit the hospital, which was established and funded by Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Trust. Khumjung monastery is interesting as being the store place of one of the alleged Yeti scalps that are to be found in the region.

The most common night stop after Namche is at the top of a steep climb from the Imja Khola, at Tengboche. Continuing our walk, a short drop takes us to the riverside, then it’s across the river upwards through the forest pass. Brace your legs for a continual uphill trek at this point, alternating between a gradual grade and some seriously steep ground. Tengboche is known as one of the most beautiful places in the Everest region. Its views, which include Ama Dablam, are legendary. We’ll stop in on the Tengboche monastery, which is one of the largest in Khumbu. Nourish your spirit with a guided tour of the monastery grounds, followed by chanting and prayer with the resident Buddhist monks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Despite the staggering elevation of the Everest Base Camp (5364 m), the trekking itself isn't that frightening. As the walk begins at an altitude of 2845 m at Lukla, the total elevation you gain as you reach the base camp is around 2500 m over a period of 8 days, which isn't extremely difficult. This is why the EBC trekking is considered a moderate to difficult trek. The trek difficulty also depends on the trekker's overall health and weather conditions. If you're in sound health and are determined to accept the challenges as you go with open arms, you're a right fit for Everest base camp.

Excellent Everest View Trekking

The Everest View hike was great! Our Sherpa Drubah ( the singing Sherpa) was fantastic. Very attentive, helpful and inspirational. I consider him a good friend after our adventure.

Thank you for everything you have done to us.

Hi ! Bishnu. We arrived Sydney safely on time. Thank you for organizing the dinner for last Kathmandu night. During trekking, we had a altitude sickness and had a hard time, but mountains were so beautiful, so it was worth of it having hard time! And we were lucky to have such a knowledgeable guide, Karma, he also worked very hard. Especially, when my husband was very sick, and to get to Kathmandu on time when it was bad weather. Please tell him our regards to him. Thank you for everything you have done to us. Takahashi Tsukiko Sydney, Australia Everest Base Camp

Everest Base Camp Trekking

My friends Dave and Parag and I did a trek to Everest Base Camp in early June. we started in Lukla on june 3 and completed the trek to base camp on june 11th. we received excellent support from Bishnu who planned and organized the trip for us , and our guide and the porters, who were committed to our safety and success and for our meaningful journey in every respect. all requests from us were honored and every opportunity was taken to make this a terrific memory for us all. Our guide Chabbi always explained the natural wonders along the way, looked out for us like a hawk on potentially dangerous sections of the trail, explained the history and culture and way of life in the Nepali highland areas, and helped us meet Nepali people along the way to brighten and intensify our positive experience. chabbi knew (before I even did) when I was going to stumble and he was always there to help me. he also at times carried my pack for potentially treacherous downhill sections. he also always knew the little shortcuts and also was a respected leader for the porters. ask your doctor, but I recommend taking Diamox because it is sustained high altitude !
