EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK 7 DAYS

For those with an adventurous spirit and a need for a personal challenge to one of the world’s most spectacular places. The Everest Base Camp Trek gives you a great opportunity to explore a unique high-altitude place that only a handful of the world’s peoples ever gets to experience. Following the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, hike along the foothills of Himalayan mountains including the world’s highest peak; Mount Everest, Mt. Lothse, Mt. Cho Oyu, and other sounding Himalayan peaks. En route, experience authentic Sherpa hospitality and Sherpa culture, Buddhist spiritualism, and stunning mountain scenery. Stand beneath the massive High mountains shadows and feel humbled.

The EBC trek begins from Lukla, a Sherpa town known as the ‘Gateway to Mt. Everest’. Following our experienced trekking guide, hike through the valley of Dudh Koshi to Namche Bazar. Namche Bazzar is a bustling trading hub filled with upscale mountain lodges, banks, bakeries, shops, and internet cafes, resembles an amphitheater carved on the sides of the Himalayas. We spend a day there acclimatizing before heading to high elevation. when we can visit the Tengboche Monastery on our trail to Everest Base Camp. We trek continues to Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorak Shep, and finally to reach Everest Base Camp. Good hiking to Kala Patthar and Nangkhartshang Peak will test your endurance level but reward you with close-up views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Pumori, Thamserku, Imja Tse/Island Peak, and several other majestic Himalayas peaks. The feature of the trek is of course to explore Mt. Everest Base Camp, surrounded by tumbling glaciers and giant walls of snow and ice.

Everest Base Camp is the first campsite for climbers trying to scale Mt. Everest. Hiking to Everest Base Camp can be a challenge. But this doesn’t mean that you can not do it. If you like hiking and make sure you start to get fit well ahead of the start of your trek, you can definitely make it. Sherpa Expedition & Trekking will have up-to-date information on conditions that will affect your planned trek. Your safety and comfort will always be our priority.

ITINERARY

Expand All

After an early morning start, you will be picked up at the hotel by our guide who will take you to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla takes around 35 minutes, time enough to take in the spectacular views of the Himalayas. After landing at Tenzing-Hilary airport you will meet your porter who will carry your luggage. You then begin your journey with a relatively easy trek passing a Kani (ceremonial gatehouse) before the trail descends then leads above Kyangma village with its large gompa (monastery) and school. We then continue to Cheplung village where the trail passes through community forest within sight of the Dudh Koshi River. After crossing the suspension bridge you climb across the ridge to Ghat and then passes a school and complex of Mani walls, Chortens and prayer wheels.. After a short walk from Ghat, we reach Phakding. 

After breakfast the trek crosses several suspension bridges over the Dudh Kosi River before passing through Tok-Tok, Bhenkar, and Monjo and then arriving at Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate where you will be required to buy a permit. After following the river bed for a few hours and after the last Hillary suspension bridge, there is a steep uphill trek to Namche Bazaar. Namche has a good selection of restaurants, a cyber café, pubs, post office, ATM and banks. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.

The trek continues along the rapid flowing glacial waters of the Dudh Kosi River with magnificent views of the mountains (Mt. Everest, Lhoste, Taboche Peak, Ama Dablam. You eventually reach an altitude of 3,800 meters at Tengboche. At the Tengboche monastery are unbelievably ornate wall hangings, a 20-foot sculpture of various poses of the Buddha, musical instruments and robes of the Lamas. Our 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. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.

The trek from Tengboche to Dingboche is only a short distance which we will most likely complete in the afternoon. The last hill into Dingboche, and at this high altitude, is challenging!. The trail then heads to the village of Somare (4020m) and then to Orsho, both of which have lodged. Later the trail divides, with the left trail heading up to Pheriche before crossing a suspension bridge and a steep climb to the village of Dingboche (4460m) with many good guesthouses. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.

Today’s trek passes many Chortens (Tibetan shrines & tombs) taking around 1.5 hours before reaching the village of Thugla Ridge (4600m) where we have lunch at its tea house. After lunch, we head towards some towering peaks, such as Mt Pumori (7161m) and Mt. Nuptse (7861m) before reaching Lobuche Village (4940m). We then pass through an open valley before arriving at Thukla after leaving the Pheriche Aid Post at Pheriche (4371m). The aid post is manned during the peak trekking seasons We then descend to the yak pastures of the small settlement of Lobuche. Today’s trek will take around 5 hours. Tonight we stay at Lobuche.

We commence our trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp through the vast Gorak-Shep. Along the trail, we pass the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. At this point the path can be confusing, so following your guide is important. The thin air at this high altitude can be exhausting. We traverse rocky dunes, moraine, and streams before reaching the Mt. Everest Base Camp. From Everest Base Camp you will see some of the world’s highest peaks, in stark contrast to the gray surroundings - especially in the spring. Before we are Khumbutse, Nuptse, and Pumori. We will then head back to Gorak Shep for a well earned night’s rest in Gorak Shep. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.

An early start to the day will be rewarded with unforgettable sunrise views from Kala Pathar – a photographer’s paradise! Mount Everest and other gigantic peaks will be in-your-face! After spending some time here to capture the views we will head back down to Gorakshep for a well-deserved breakfast. After breakfast, we will prepare for the scenic helicopter flight back to Lukla and after we reach Lukla we will take a normal flight in some glorious views of the surrounding Himalayan Mountains.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom - until Namche which is a thriving town seeing many more tourists and a greater range of accommodation. It should be noted that at higher elevations the quality of accommodation may not be as good, with more basic rooms with the bare necessities.

Meals during the trek

 In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Khumbu region is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpas’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu to Lukla and return.

Physical fitness

EBC is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes and sizes who have completed the trek.The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 
Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

Our journey through the Everest Region was truly a trip of a lifetime, thanks to the great itinerary provided. The walks we embarked on allowed us to explore the region's natural wonders and witness its majestic beauty. However, it's important to be prepared for the unpredictable weather changes that come with the high altitude. Despite this, the top-quality teahouses we encountered along the way were a pleasant surprise. The accommodations were comfortable, the food was delicious, and the staff went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction. We cannot recommend this trip enough for its great value for money and the unforgettable memories it creates.
