The Everest Base Camp Luxury trek, one of the grandest trek in the worlds, is an unparalleled opportunity to trek in the Himalayas. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay set off on their epic journey in 1953.

Upon arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport Kathmandu, a Sherpa Exp Trekking family's representative will assist you then after you will be escorted towards arrival terminal where a traditional welcoming with garlands or Khada will highlight your visit. Then you will board our luxury coaches that will take you to your designated accommodation or for the sightseeing right through the city’s heart- the localized view seen outside from your window is sure to grab your attention, new place, and new faces.
                 
Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek although relatively easy compared to some of the other treks, takes you up high along trails to Tengboche Monastery (3850m). This is a short but very scenic trek that offers a superb view of the world’s highest peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and other many snowy peaks.
                 
We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airstrip in the Khumbu region and trek up to Namche Bazar, Tyangboche (famous for its monastery) and into the Khumjung village, a very nice settlement of Sherpas people. This trek is a great introduction of Sherpa country and its culture with great mountain views standing beautifully, it is a very popular destination for first-time trekkers in Nepal. This trek is suitable for trekkers who do not have enough time for longer treks into the high mountains.

Early in the morning, you will board a flight to Lukla Airport, also commonly known as Tenzing-Hillary Airport. It is a wonderful mountain flight and the flight itself can be no less than an adventure as the airport is enlisted as the most dangerous airport in the world, given the location, altitude, and topography. In less than 30 minutes, you will reach Lukla while enjoying the breathtaking views of the mountains during the flight. After landing at Lukla, we take light breakfast and embark on our trek.

On the third morning, we continue our trek and follow the trail along the Dudh Kosi River while ascending through Himalayan Pine and Deodar Cedar forests to the ultimate destination, that of the popular village of Namche Bazaar.

Overnight stay at a Yeti Home in Namche Bazar. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
  • 3 to 4 hours.
  • Everest view Resort.
This is the first acclimatization which you will get on the whole trek. Acclimatization is very important during high altitude trekking in Nepal as it helps to acquaint you with the high and the changing altitude and conditions. On this day, you can also side trek to the twin villages of Khumjung and Khude where you will have lunch for the day. There are lots of good bakery shops in Khumjung. After that, you will trek until the Everest View Hotel from where you can enjoy the views of the mountains including the Everest.

The group will be taken to observe a prayer ceremony either in the evening or in the morning depending on how the trekking goes this day. Overnight at Himalayan Culture Home. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
  • 4 to 5 hours.
  • Guest house.
This stage is short, but as mentioned many will be doing it in the afternoon. The last hill into Dingboche is where the altitude often bites. Beware of too much activity on this first night. those merely strolling up from Pangboche should be fine. Leaving upper the routes heads to the village of Somare (4010m) and then Orsho; both have lodges. Later the path divides; the left path goes up to Pheriche. the trailheads around to a bridge, before a steep climb to the village of Dingboche (4410m), which has quite a few very good lodges. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
  • 4 to 5 hrs.
  • Guest House.
It's advisable to have another acclimatization day off before going higher. The best option is to hike up the valley to Chukkung (4730m) and on towards Island Peak (Imja Tes). Above Dingboche is Nagkartshang Gompa (allow 2-3hrsfor an energetic but short trip). or head to Pheriche for the HRA afternoon lecture on altitude sickness. The trail for Chhukung leaves Dingboche for the cluster of Bibr (4570m) is surrounded by fabulous Peaks: Taboche, the wall of Nuptse and Lhotse and the tremendous fluted cirque liking the Amphu Laptsa pass and Ama Dablam. Chukkung has several lodges and is a popular spot for that climbing island peak. Well acclimatized trekkers can head up a grassy slope towards the peak of Chukkung Ri (5550m) to view Makalu. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
  • 5 to 6 hours.
  • Guest House.
After breakfast, we start with an easy walk towards Dugla. Next, we trek up the steep terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier, and then pass through the boulder-strewn slopes as we ascend Chupki Lhara where we find an array of stones with prayer flags used as memorials to Scott Fischer (American mountaineer) and 10-time Everest submitter Babu Chiri Sherpa (Nepalese mountain guide) who perished on a mission to climb Everest. The trail then continues to the Khumbu Glacier moraine and we find ourselves facing several great peaks - Khumbutse, Lingtren, Pumori and Mahalangur Himal. Overnight in Lobuche. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
  • 6 to 7 hours.
  • Guest House.
We take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come across the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. The path from here can be misleading; hence it is important that we follow our lead Sherpa diligently. The walk is strenuous due to thin air in the high altitude. We pass through rocky dunes, moraine, and streams before reaching the Everest Base Camp. Upon reaching the Everest Base Camp, we see tents of mountaineers that stand out in bright colors against the monotony of grey surroundings (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste, and Pumori are the mountains we can view from the base camp. We get back to Gorak Shep for a good night's rest. Overnight in Gorak Shep. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
  • 7 to 8 hours.
  • Guest House.
We prepare for an early morning departure, amid pre-dawn darkness and cold temperatures (-10 to -14 C). Plus, there is always the potential for chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to reveal itself. But, it is upon reaching Kala Patthar that we get to see360 degree up-close and formidable views of Mt. Everest. We take pictures, enjoy the magnificent mountain panorama, and then return back to Lobuche for a good night's rest. Overnight in Pangboche. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
  • 5 to 6 hours.
  • Guest House.
Following the same trail, leaving the mountains behind us, our descent takes us from Tengboche (3,860 m) to the town of Namche Bazaar. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
  • 35 minutes.
  • 3-star Hotel.

Good to Know

Sherpa Expedition & Trekking Pvt. Ltd information about Himalayas of Nepal Everest Region Trekking.

Doing treks in Himalayas of Nepal is the distinct culture and environment. Trekkers need to consider on following do’s and don’ts.

Do’s

  • Do smile and greet the local people by saying “Namaste” and “Tashidelek” to show respect.
  • Do walk in a group or keep a distance that you could see your front and behind fellow.
  • Do consult with your trekking guide before trying anything new during the trek.
  • Do ask a question to the guide for the next day trekking necessity, so that you could pack in your small backpack because rest baggage will carry by a porter and will get only in the evening.
  • Do give a donation to the monastery in the trekking area where they don’t collect tickets from the visitors but there is a donation box.
  • Do inform your trekking guide if you are not comfortable with your health while approaching higher altitude.

Don’t

  • Don’t underestimate the local culture and belief even if you find uncomfortable with it.
  • Don’t take a picture of the people without their permission during the trek because some individual doesn’t like that.
  • Don’t be strange if local people stare at you because they are surprised to see you, not with a bad intention.
  • Don’t expect too many facilities in the trekking areas, most places provide you only the basic facilities.
  • Don’t harm wild animals, birds, and plants during the trek and take a global responsibility to save the environment.
  • Don’t give money to the children and the beggars; it encourages them to beg from the visitors.
