Today we take a short flight from Kathmandu and then trek to Phakding (2610m), a small village in the Khumbu region of Nepal in the Dudh Kosi river valley.

Today we trek through the valley with the Dudh Kosi River at our side. On several occasions, you cross the Dudh Kosi River on suspension bridges before climbing higher before reaching the small village of Jorsale in the Khumbu region – just south of Namche Bazaar. After a two hour trek, you will finally reach Namche with some fascinating views along the way, including some spectacular views of captivating Mt. Everest (Sagamartha in Nepali). You enter the Sagarmatha National Park at Jorsale where authorities will check your license. Continuing on for another 5 or 6 hours of fairly hard going we arrive at Namche Bazaar.

Today we head off to Tengboche and along the trail have our first views of several enormous peaks: Ama Dablam (6812m), Lhotse Shar (8393m), Taboche (6495m), Khangtega (6782m), and Thamserku (6623m). As we continue we come to an Army barrack at Phunke Tenga (22335m) and arrive at Tengboche where we stop for lunch. After lunch we visit the famous Tibetan Tengboche Buddhist monastery and later continue on the trail and pass the Sagarmatha National park office at Debouche. Continuing we finally reach Pangboche and visit the Gompa (temple). Tonight we stay here.

Today we head off up stone steps until we reach Pheriche and later Thukla where we stay the night.

Today we follow the trail and stop for lunch at Gorakshep. After lunch we continue until we reach Everest Base Camp (5364) where you have a spectacular view of Nuptse. After stopping for lunch we trek toward EBC following a trail alongside the Khumbu ice sheet. The trek around the ice sheet takes around 1.5 hours before crossing the glacier and into the region of EBC (5360m). At base camp you will have an opportunity to meet other climbers and share stories. From EBC you will have views of the Khumbu ice sheet and glacier with its frightening and dangerous crevices. We will then descend to Gorakshep where we stay the night.

The early morning trek to Kalapathar (5550m) from Gorakshep will take around two hours. After a short climb to Kalapathar, you will have uninterrupted views of Everest and other towering peaks. The magnificent photos of Everest seen on the internet are taken from this vantage point. From here we head down to Gorakshep, a fairly easy downhill trek. At Gorakshep, we stop for tea and a snack before continuing on our descent to Pheriche. After accomplishing your goal of reaching EBC and experiencing high altitude climbing, you will sleep soundly at Pheriche. Today’s trek will take between 6 to 7 hours.

Leaving Pheriche we take a fairly easy trek for around 30 minutes before reaching Tengboche and then descend to Phunkithanga (3200m). Our final trek is to Namche where we can celebrate our success and reminisce sharing the highlights. This is also your last opportunity to appreciate the beauty of these towering peaks. At Namche you can reconnect via the internet with the outside world, visit the bread shop and maybe hang out at a bar!

It is a fairly long day with a 7-hour trek from Namche to Lukla, which is mostly downhill with several sections of level ground. We leave the Sagarmatha National Park and eventually reach Lukla where we stay overnight.

Our morning flight will have us reach Kathmandu in around 30 minutes. During the flight, you will have a birds-eye view of many of the world’s soaring peaks in the Himalaya Ranges. Your guide will escort you from the airport to your hotel.

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.


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!

While it is technically possible to complete the Everest Base Camp Trek in 9 days, it is not recommended for most trekkers. The standard duration for the Everest Base Camp Trek is around 12-14 days, allowing for proper acclimatization and a more comfortable pace. A shorter 9-day itinerary would require longer and more strenuous trekking days, increasing the risk of altitude sickness. 

The recommended duration for the Everest Base Camp Trek is around 12-14 days. This allows for gradual acclimatization, rest days, and a more enjoyable trekking experience. It also provides time to explore the surrounding areas, such as Kala Patthar and nearby viewpoints.

The maximum altitude reached during the Everest Base Camp Trek is at Everest Base Camp itself, which is approximately 5,364 meters (17,598 feet) above sea level. However, most trekkers also climb Kala Patthar, which offers stunning panoramic views of Everest and reaches an altitude of 5,545 meters (18,192 feet).

While prior trekking experience is not required, it is recommended to have a reasonable level of fitness and some hiking experience. The Everest Base Camp Trek involves long and challenging days of walking, steep ascents and descents, and high altitudes. Regular exercise and preparation can greatly enhance your trekking experience.

The best time to undertake the Everest Base Camp Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These months offer stable weather conditions, clear skies, and moderate temperatures, making it ideal for trekking and enjoying the views. However, it is possible to trek to Everest Base Camp in other months as well, with proper preparation and consideration of weather conditions.

To do the Everest Base Camp Trek, you will need two permits: the Sagarmatha National Park Permit and the TIMS (Trekkers' Information Management System) Card. These permits can be obtained through authorized trekking agencies or from the Department of Immigration in Kathmandu.

Altitude sickness is a potential concern during the Everest Base Camp Trek due to the high altitudes involved. It is important to acclimatize properly by taking rest days and ascending gradually. Drinking plenty of water, following your guide's advice, and being aware of altitude sickness symptoms are essential for a safe trek.

Some essential items to pack for the Everest Base Camp Trek include trekking boots, warm clothing layers, a good quality sleeping bag, a down jacket, a hat, gloves, sunglasses, a headlamp, sunscreen, a water bottle, and personal toiletries. It is best to pack light but ensure you have all the necessary gear for the trek.

Yes, hiring a guide and porter is optional but highly recommended for the Everest Base Camp Trek. A guide will provide valuable information, ensure your safety, and assist with navigation, while a porter can carry your heavy backpack, allowing you to trek with less weight and enjoy the journey more comfortably.

Accommodation during the Everest Base Camp Trek is typically in tea houses or lodges along the trekking route. These are basic but comfortable accommodations offering meals and a place to rest. Some tea houses may have shared bathrooms, while others may have attached bathrooms. It is advisable to carry a sleeping bag for added comfort and warmth.
