Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary

A representative from Peregrine Tour Nepal will be there to greet and welcome you as soon as you land in Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA). The day you check in, a pre-arranged meeting will be hosted in the hotel itself to brief you about the tour and the arrangements for the kits you require, will be made. We will be introducing you to our team members who will guide you throughout the trek. Drinks and Snacks will be arranged for and you will be introduced to the remaining trek members. A much needed time to communicate with each other and get to know your fellow companions. You’ll have to submit your documents and complete the remaining formalities on this very day so no further inconveniences occur.

Meals: Not Included

We will be moved to the airport for a 35-45 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. This small flight is majestic and thrilling itself with the beauties of mountain peaks and starting from Kathmandu rooftops. After our arrival upon Lukla (2860m), we will meet our other team members. The same day we start trekking for the Phakding village. The trek lasts for 3-4 hours, and we witness the sacred mountain Khumbila(5751m) from the town Cheplung, we come across Dudh Koshi river, and a gradual walk leads us to Phakding village. From Phakding village, we can have a sight of Kusum Kangraru Mountain. The town in the north valley of Lukla has several quality lodges, hotels and guest houses for tourist and trekkers. We will stay there for the night and the day after, continue our expedition.

Tenzing Hillary Airport, Lukla

Note

Government of Nepal has declared that most of the flights to Lukla will start from Ramechhap until next notice to avoid over traffic crowding in Kathmandu airport. The airport in Racechhap lies 130km far from Kathmandu (approximately 3-4 hours drive).

On the other hand, a helicopter can be charted for five persons on a sharing basis with the addition of USD 500 per person for a one-way flight. We will try to form up the group at the airport, but it can be guaranteed. However, flying to Lukla and drive to Ramechhap is always guaranteed unless any change in the program comes due to climate change.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

We will start heading towards Namche Bazaar just after our breakfast. This is the day we become evident of the promising exquisiteness of the mountains. We pass along lovely pine forests and revealed land. Cross a steel suspension bridge up above the glacial river, Dudh Koshi. Also trek along Bhote Koshi, a sister of the Koshi family. As we embark on our journey, mountains like Mt. Nupla (5885m), Kongde Ri (6093m) rise to give us a sight of themselves. Furthermore, we cross Kusum khola and witness Mt. Kusum Kangraru to the east, head of the valley. We come across some fields of donkeys and yaks loaded with trekking gear and trading goods.

If you haven’t seen the Mani stones, you’re about to be introduced to the holy mantra of Buddhist and Brahmins, “Om Mani Padme Hum” which translates to “Hail to the jewel in the lotus”. We also have a sight of Mt. Thamserku (6808m) at a turn of the trail. As we cross the Monjo pass, we enter the Sagarmatha National Park where we look forward to rich vegetation, wildlife like red pandas, yaks etc. Then we commence our ascent to the Sherpa Capital, Namche Bazaar. The most important section of trade for the Tibetans and Sherpas living around the valley. If the weather is fine and we are lucky enough, we might catch our first glimpse of the almighty Mt. Everest. This is an adventure trek, breath taking and rewarding as well. But this is just the forestage of what is to come. We will take rest, relax ourselves and stay overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

This day, we will spend to acclimatize for the thinning air. However, there are plenty of things we can do in Namche Bazaar. Our guides can escort you to the museum where you can catch an idea of traditional Sherpa life. We can trek up to Syangboche and the Everest View Hotel which is located at the highest altitude in the world. It provides with a glimpse of mountains like Everest and many others. Similarly, if we hike along Sagarmatha National Park, we can catch a sunrise view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and many more. We can also catch a panoramic view of the Namche village from up the hill from Syangboche. In the evening, we can roam around the colorful Namche Bazaar to catch a bargain. A tea or coffee in Namche Bazaar is considered the most important thing to do so we set the morning and evening cups with us.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

As we head towards Tengboche this day, this journey is full of unobstructed scenes consisting Himalayas like Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam and others. We descend along the famous Dudh Koshi River and ascend along the equally vibrant forests covered by Rhododendron Trees in Tengboche. We continue our trail along various Sherpa Villages and take a sneak peek at their culture and lifestyle. Tengboche village is also well known for the largest monastery in the region, Tengboche Monastery. It is a spiritual hub for the people from the Khumbu region. It is surrounded by beautiful forests and holds a great significance to the Sherpas. We will stay in Tengboche for the night.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

This morning, we begin our descent towards Dingboche from Tengboche. We’re still accompanied by the majestic Himalayas and scenes of forests and rhododendrons. It’s a steep trek down Imja Khola, a part of the Dudh Koshi River which takes us to Pangboche. The village is situated to the direct opposite to Mt. Ama Dablam so we’ll be rewarded with the immersive view of the summit. This trek also blesses us with the Buddhist pilgrims and monasteries and gompa in Pangboche and sacred Mani walls. As we arrive in Dingboche, we witness some alluring beauty of the crop fields. It is also known as “Summer Valley” of the region and has a kilometer of stone walls built to protect the crops from cold wind and grazing animals. We’ll stay in Dingboche for the night.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

The Dingboche village is a beautiful place to be for the trekkers and mountaineers for Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam and Imja Tse. It is a village of vegetation surrounded with stony walls that protect crops like buckwheat, barley and potatoes. We will be spending a whole day here for acclimatization.

However there are a lot of things to do during the day. We can trek up the Nagerjun Hill to get an amazing view of the mountains like Makalu, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and few more. We can also hike to an old Buddhist heritage site, Nangar Dzong. Futhermore, there’s a peak that can be easily climbed by foot, Dolma Ri.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

After resting a while we continue to embark on our expedition. Coming across the snow capped peaks of Cholatse and Tawache, the road and the places grow more remote than the lower region. Then we witness mountain peaks like Khumutse, Mahalangur Himal, Lingtren and the Pumori. Mt. Nuptse also waits for the blessed sunset view for us on the journey. The trek gets easy and comfortable towards the end as we get to the valley of Lobuche. We spend our night in Lobuche.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

As the sun rays shimmer down upon the ranges, we start our journey. This day is vigorous. The entire valley turns golden to give us a sight of the golden Himalayas.

This trek takes strength due to the thinning air and also can be misleading. But we can totally rely on the experienced Sherpas. As we trek along Khumbu Glacier, after about 3 hours we reach a settlement called “Gorak Shep” which is a simple resting place with a very few dotted lodges and breathtaking mountain scenes.

Our expedition does not stop here, trekking a bit more time along the Khumbu Glacier leads us to the Everest Base Camp. This cannot get any bigger. We experience pure magic in the form of mountains, the colorful camps contrasting the gray lands. Take photos, meet new people and make cherishing memories. Just roam around the place and admire it.

Then we trek down our way towards Gorak Shep again and spend our night there.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

We set up an early morning trek towards Kala Patthar which translates to “Black Rock”. This climb can be done by any level trekker but is considered tough due to the hard rocky way up. So it’s recommended to have you acclimatized before making this expedition. It provides an immensely beautiful sunrise view to mountains up above and we can experience the Khumbu Glacier down of us. Mountains like Everest, Lingtren, and Khumbutse reveal themselves to us. We take pictures, panoramic views and experience a surreal beauty.

Then, return back to Gorak Shep and descend down to the village of Periche for the night.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

We descend towards Pangboche and Tengboche this day. Accompanied by green forests and mountains, we can also catch a view of wild goats on our way. We can visit the oldest monastery in the old Pangboche. We move along rhododendron forests and mountain sights towards Tengboche.

Then we descend over the Dudh Koshi River to Phunki Tenga and slowly make our way to the colorful village of Namche. We get in Namche towards the afternoon and stay our night there.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

This day we trek for Lukla where this all started. This is a steep downwards trail accompanied by the scenic views of the mountains, the sacred Mani walls. And the milky white Dudh Koshi River adds ambiance to our journey as we continue on with it.  This will be our last day in the mountains. After we reach Lukla, we have a lot to celebrate. The team spirit and the invaluable experience is what you take home and we bid farewell to the mountains. We party and then relax the night in Lukla.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

We catch a thrilling and scenic flight again from Lukla to Ramechhap, accompanied by our memories of accomplishment and the mountains. Drive back to Kathmandu, relax, and cherish the Everest Base Camp trek.

Essential Information

Accessing this Everest Base Camp Trek

A flight to Lukla or a trek in from Salleri, we have multiple options to access this Everest Base Camp Trek. The accessibility of the scenic hub – headquarters of the Solukhumbu Region depends upon the quality of the roads. However, they can be accessed by flights too. Adding an extra four days to the trip, this would act as a prelude to the great climb ahead.

 

Best time to go to Everest Base Camp Tour

Although Everest Base Camp Tour is done all year round, March to May and September to November are considered the best seasons for the expedition due to the warm climate and favorable weather.

However, in the past, every expedition and every season has provided a unique experience. Winters can be promising as we see the areas covered by a thin layer of snow and there are much fewer expeditions sharing the trail.

 

Accommodation during the Everest Base Camp Trek

There are several well-accommodated lodges and tea houses while on the Everest Base Camp Trek. We would recommend you to have a mixture of luxury lodges and local tea houses to stay for nights while on the trek.

 

Unique Ways to do Everest Base Camp Trek

During winters, the trails are relatively quieter than in the spring, so we get the pure serenity of nature. If you can afford more time, we can trek from Salleri, the Lower Everest Region. This way, we acclimatize our body more and also get in sync with the local culture and the mountains.

 

Shortening the Everest Base Camp Trek

Using Helicopter for Return (9-10 days)

If you run short on time, a helicopter can be arranged from Gorak Shep or Namche Bazaar that can cut short at least 4-5 days. However, incorporating the aircraft only up to Lukla, and taking a flight from there would be more budget-friendly.

 

Short Everest Base Camp Trek with View of Mt. Everest

If you have minimal time, a distant view of Mt. Everest can be done through a shorter trek. Instead of the Everest Base Camp expedition, we can trek up to Namche or Tengboche. It is not a bad option, either.

 

Extending your Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest Region is composed of four glacial valleys running down from the Himalayan ranges. The route is networked to the Everest Base Camp route, and we can also trail through that chain.

 

Gokyo Lakes &Everest Base Camp Trek (16 days)

Gokyo lakes take us to a small village of Gokyo. This route is a combined route to Everest Base Camp Trek through Gokyo. The trial adds a viewpoint of Gokyo Ri (5357m), which provides a beautiful view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu.

 

Three Passes Trek (19 days)

If you’d like to extend your Everest Base Camp Trek, consider trailing through three passes and three viewpoints of about 5000m. It would provide you with all the highlights of the region. The trek revolves counterclockwise through the Sagarmatha National Park extending the trek up to 19-20 days.

 

More Details about the Everest Base Camp Trek

Trekking Group

Generally, for the Everest Base Camp Trek 10 trekkers is considered the best number according to our findings. There is one leader, assistant guide (6 trekkers = 1 assistant guide), and Sherpa porters/carriers (2 trekkers = one porter) to make this trip successful even if some uncertainties occur. However, upon client requests, we can also arrange a trek for more than ten people or a private trek too.

 

Accommodation during Trip

During the whole duration of Everest Base Camp Trek, you will spend three nights in 3-star hotels. Eleven nights in local standard tea houses while on the trek. The three-star hotels are well accommodated for the facilities whereas, in the local tea houses, you’ll be provided mattresses and warm blankets. However, we suggest you carry your sleeping equipment.   All accommodations in the Everest Region are on twin sharing basis. However, arrangements can be made if you want a private room for yourselves in some places.

 

Food and Dietary Restriction

During Everest Base Camp Trek, we provide three times meals, (Breakfast, Lunch, and dinner) with tea and coffee. Many lodges at the expedition cook a variety of vegetarian cuisines like Italian, Continental, and Indian, etc. The foods contain a lot of garlic for acclimatization purposes. We would discourage you from drinking beer or whiskey or meat items as they increase the chances of getting sick while trailing the heights. The dinners and breakfast will be served in the lodge we stay for the night. The lunch will be made on the way to the destination. We will have a farewell dinner and breakfast in Kathmandu. Please let us know beforehand if you have any dietary plans.

 

Water

We suggest you buy water purifying tablets along the way and carry a bottle of a couple of liters. Purchase water bottles would only encourage pollution in the region. You can use water taste enhancers to cover up the unpleasant taste of the tablets.

 

Altitude Acclimatization

Trailing up then the height of 2500 m can increase the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Altitude Acclimatization is the key to avoid acute mountain sickness. Make a slow climb to help your body acclimatize. Drink plenty of liquid-like garlic soup that helps the body with the process. There are drugs like acetazolamide (also called Diamox) that help the body maintain the amount of oxygen. However, our trips itineraries are designed, keeping in mind the time for acclimatization for a human body.

 

Local Trekking Leaders and Trekking Crew

The most significant thing in our Everest Base Camp Trek is the professional, talented, well mannered and diligent trek leaders. The trek is led by a very gifted and experienced trek guide. Our trek supporters are the ones who know the area and are the local trekking guides and porters. Nepali guides have significant knowledge about the geography, climate, floras, and faunas of the region. We have our leaders selected based on their experiences in the wilderness, professionalism, leadership skills, and their friendly approach towards the trekkers. Additionally, the following categories are put in the table before we chose our employees.

  • Trekking Guide Training
  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid
  • Eco Trekking Workshop and Adventure Meet
  • English Language
  • Conservation and Biodiversity
  • Rock climbing, Ice Climbing, and Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

 

Trip Safety

Your safety is always our priority. Our trips are well planned to take every precaution in mind. The team will be well equipped with cell phones, emergency satellite phones, extensive medical kits, and other necessary apparatus. You will always be in connection with our Kathmandu office. Our team makes sure you are safe throughout the trip. Pre-trip administration such as compulsory medical questionnaires and travel insurance is all done keeping your safety in mind.

 

Preparing for the Challenge

Terrain

The terrain in the Everest Region varies as we move along the route. During Everest Base Camp trek, we pass through valleys, forests, mountains, and steep paths. Trekkers must be healthy to be on this trek. This trek takes us to 5545m of altitude and some; people might have symptoms of altitude sickness despite precautions. The accurate distance cannot be measured due to the lack of accurate maps. However, we would be delighted to talk to you through the trip if you have any worries about your fitness at any age.

Weather

Nepal has cold winters, hot and wet summers, pleasant autumns, and moist winters. The best time for the Everest Base Camp trek would be sprung. However, every season has a unique specialty and delighters.

 

Fitness Level

Everest Base Camp Trek requires a reasonable level of fitness maintained. One must be used for some exercise. However, your gears and sleeping bags will be carried by porters and animals. So your daily pack will be light and just, the altitude trail can seem a significant issue. We walk daily, and with, days, you must feel fit and healthy and push your limits. We expect our fellow participants to get used to exercise and train hard before the Everest Base Camp trek. However, we design our treks equal to every gender or age. We believe that trekking is not a race and a collective trail. So there is equal participation of all the trekkers.

 

Vaccinations

We recommend vaccinations for diseases like Malaria, Small Pox, Typhoid, Titanus, Meningitis, Rabies, Hepatitis and, Polio to be on the safer side. That may be the best precaution to be taken before the Everest Base Camp Trek. Please consult your doctors and carry your health certificates if they are required in any case.

 

Travel Insurance

Before commencing any of the Peregrine Treks, we make sure our participants have enough insurance covering any misfortunes that may occur while the trip. You are welcome to source your insurance and provide of this proof 15 days before the trip.

Passport and Visa

All nationalities except Indians require a visa. A visa can be easily acquired through different embassies or Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) upon arrival. To obtain the visa at the airport, you’ll have to wait in a queue, but this is the easiest way to get one. You’ll be required to submit a passport size photo along with fees in US dollars or equivalent convertible currency. Please note that the costs and regulations for visa change frequently so please be updated with the contemporary rules with your nearest Nepalese embassy or consulate.

 

Environmental Care and Sustainable Tourism

Tourism Industry depends upon the conservation of fragile nature. And we want our future generations to enjoy the beautiful Himalayas just as we do with our clients. With increasing trekkers, increases our responsibility towards the environment. We make sure our customers enjoy every bit of the trip with no harm to nature. We evade the damage by carefully designing our itineraries, educating guides, and having an active environmental policy that is persistently reviewed. Our team is ensured to follow the environmental policy and also encourage the trekkers to help preserve the precious Himalayan eco-system.

 

Transport

We in Peregrine Treks and Tours chose low emission vehicles that are fuel-efficient and environment-friendly. We use local cars whenever possible, to decrease per person emission and also support the local economy.

 

 

Purchasing and Local Producers

We try to use local products as much as possible to avoid transportation from around the world. This way, we conserve our eco-system and also support the local economy at the same time.

Note:

It is recommended that you buy yourself some extra days. Arrive in Kathmandu a day before the departure date. You can use the extra day for purchasing equipment, gears and also have some rest before the grand trail that you’re up to. Buying you some spare time after the trek will cover-up in case the flight from Lukla to Kathmandu gets delayed or canceled due to unfavorable weather. So the extra days will help you not to miss your International flight.
During our trip, there may be various political, climatic, and multiple other factors are beyond our control and have a chance of altering our itineraries although the alteration may not happen significantly, if any adjustment necessary, the leader will decide the best alternative taking into consideration the group’s interests. If any change is made, we make sure that it has the least effects in our itineraries and plans. However, we cannot be responsible for the result of delays in such cases.

 

Flight Delays in Kathmandu and Lukla

Lukla Airport is situated in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. Therefore, a flight taking off and landings are considered difficult sometimes. Plus, the weather is very unpredictable and can be changing every few hours resulting in flight delays and cancellations.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the main transportations from the airstrip at Lukla. Their service is very much reliable. However, if any delays or cancellations occur due to the weather conditions, we will help you incorporate a helicopter which can carry 4-6 persons at a time. This can cost an extra of US $500 to $3000 per person depending upon the number of passengers. The participant must pay the cost at the time of service. Later, it can be submitted for reimbursement through a travel insurance company. US dollars cash or credit cards (Master Cards, Visa Cards, and American Express) are accepted for the helicopter service. All payments require 4% bank fee, which goes directly to the bank.

The helicopter can fly if the visibility is 1500 or greater. Twin Otter and Dornier fly if the visibility is 5000 or greater as per Nepal Civil Aviation rules. If the weather is extreme and visibility is under 1500, the helicopters are not operated. In such cases, we will schedule the flights to the nearest date available. If the weather gets worst day by day, we will be providing you with alternative trek options.

by Jordan T. Murray on Peregrine Treks

Trekking up to Everest Base Camp was a challenging trek, but it was way much satisfying and beyond my expectations. I had first class communication with Pradip, who organized this EBC trek, and Itinerary. I had an excellent trekking guide named Chetup, who looked after my ups and downs throughout the trek. He kept me informed about the Trekking distance to be covered, height to be ascended and altitude to be reached daily, keeping me safe.
I will, for sure return to Nepal and have another adventure with Peregrine Trek. Namaste.

by Natalie Goold-Adams on Peregrine Treks

Apart from arranging the entire EBC trek, Peregrine Trek made my emergency helicopter evacuation successful despite busy trekking season. Before that, the trek was fantastic. The trekking guides handled us very carefully, and nothing was too much trouble for them. They even offered to carry our hike bag pack when the going got too harsh. Porters were awesomely fantastic. Every food we had on our food stop were just so delicious and energetic; I had no space left for the snacks that I stocked up for hikes. Back at the office, Mr. Pradip was way too concerned and right on time with us for our hotel transfers or airport pickup and so on.
I highly recommend PEREGRINE TREKS as a trekking company. Client safety and satisfaction is their main priority. All the best, and we will return.

by Laura Leidig on Peregrine Treks

Our best decision yet so far for choosing 16 days Everest base camp Trek and we are glad we did it. Words can't explain how thrilled we were. We had EBC trek in our bucket list from long ago. We hesitated before we started our trek as this was our first trip to Nepal. Booking progresses, and we realized that Peregrine Treks is one of the best trekking agencies in Nepal.
Great thanks to Pradip and his entire squad for their spontaneous efforts, none would have been possible without their help. A big hug and much love to our guide cum friend Mingma Chhiri Sherpa for all his care and efficiency, and the porter who has a high helping hand for us. Everest Base Camp is truly a marvel, inducing fantasy with reality, a place truly connecting you with Earth as one.
Our first time to Nepal has embarked its warmth within us. We will be back because Nepal once is not enough.

If you haven’t seen the Mani stones, you’re about to be introduced to the holy mantra of Buddhist and Brahmins, “Om Mani Padme Hum” which translates to “Hail to the jewel in the lotus”. We also have a sight of Mt. Thamserku (6808m) at a turn of the trail. As we cross the Monjo pass, we enter the Sagarmatha National Park where we look forward to rich vegetation, wildlife like red pandas, yaks etc. Then we commence our ascent to the Sherpa Capital, Namche Bazaar. The most important section of trade for the Tibetans and Sherpas living around the valley. If the weather is fine and we are lucky enough, we might catch our first glimpse of the almighty Mt. Everest. This is an adventure trek, breath taking and rewarding as well. But this is just the forestage of what is to come. We will take rest, relax ourselves and stay overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

This day, we will spend to acclimatize for the thinning air. However, there are plenty of things we can do in Namche Bazaar. Our guides can escort you to the museum where you can catch an idea of traditional Sherpa life. We can trek up to Syangboche and the Everest View Hotel which is located at the highest altitude in the world. It provides with a glimpse of mountains like Everest and many others. Similarly, if we hike along Sagarmatha National Park, we can catch a sunrise view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and many more. We can also catch a panoramic view of the Namche village from up the hill from Syangboche. In the evening, we can roam around the colorful Namche Bazaar to catch a bargain. A tea or coffee in Namche Bazaar is considered the most important thing to do so we set the morning and evening cups with us.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

As we head towards Tengboche this day, this journey is full of unobstructed scenes consisting Himalayas like Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam and others. We descend along the famous Dudh Koshi River and ascend along the equally vibrant forests covered by Rhododendron Trees in Tengboche. We continue our trail along various Sherpa Villages and take a sneak peek at their culture and lifestyle. Tengboche village is also well known for the largest monastery in the region, Tengboche Monastery. It is a spiritual hub for the people from the Khumbu region. It is surrounded by beautiful forests and holds a great significance to the Sherpas. We will stay in Tengboche for the night.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

This morning, we begin our descent towards Dingboche from Tengboche. We’re still accompanied by the majestic Himalayas and scenes of forests and rhododendrons. It’s a steep trek down Imja Khola, a part of the Dudh Koshi River which takes us to Pangboche. The village is situated to the direct opposite to Mt. Ama Dablam so we’ll be rewarded with the immersive view of the summit. This trek also blesses us with the Buddhist pilgrims and monasteries and gompa in Pangboche and sacred Mani walls. As we arrive in Dingboche, we witness some alluring beauty of the crop fields. It is also known as “Summer Valley” of the region and has a kilometer of stone walls built to protect the crops from cold wind and grazing animals. We’ll stay in Dingboche for the night.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

The Dingboche village is a beautiful place to be for the trekkers and mountaineers for Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam and Imja Tse. It is a village of vegetation surrounded with stony walls that protect crops like buckwheat, barley and potatoes. We will be spending a whole day here for acclimatization.

However there are a lot of things to do during the day. We can trek up the Nagerjun Hill to get an amazing view of the mountains like Makalu, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and few more. We can also hike to an old Buddhist heritage site, Nangar Dzong. Futhermore, there’s a peak that can be easily climbed by foot, Dolma Ri.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

After resting a while we continue to embark on our expedition. Coming across the snow capped peaks of Cholatse and Tawache, the road and the places grow more remote than the lower region. Then we witness mountain peaks like Khumutse, Mahalangur Himal, Lingtren and the Pumori. Mt. Nuptse also waits for the blessed sunset view for us on the journey. The trek gets easy and comfortable towards the end as we get to the valley of Lobuche. We spend our night in Lobuche.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

As the sun rays shimmer down upon the ranges, we start our journey. This day is vigorous. The entire valley turns golden to give us a sight of the golden Himalayas.

This trek takes strength due to the thinning air and also can be misleading. But we can totally rely on the experienced Sherpas. As we trek along Khumbu Glacier, after about 3 hours we reach a settlement called “Gorak Shep” which is a simple resting place with a very few dotted lodges and breathtaking mountain scenes.

Our expedition does not stop here, trekking a bit more time along the Khumbu Glacier leads us to the Everest Base Camp. This cannot get any bigger. We experience pure magic in the form of mountains, the colorful camps contrasting the gray lands. Take photos, meet new people and make cherishing memories. Just roam around the place and admire it.

Then we trek down our way towards Gorak Shep again and spend our night there.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

We set up an early morning trek towards Kala Patthar which translates to “Black Rock”. This climb can be done by any level trekker but is considered tough due to the hard rocky way up. So it’s recommended to have you acclimatized before making this expedition. It provides an immensely beautiful sunrise view to mountains up above and we can experience the Khumbu Glacier down of us. Mountains like Everest, Lingtren, and Khumbutse reveal themselves to us. We take pictures, panoramic views and experience a surreal beauty.

Then, return back to Gorak Shep and descend down to the village of Periche for the night.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

We descend towards Pangboche and Tengboche this day. Accompanied by green forests and mountains, we can also catch a view of wild goats on our way. We can visit the oldest monastery in the old Pangboche. We move along rhododendron forests and mountain sights towards Tengboche.

Then we descend over the Dudh Koshi River to Phunki Tenga and slowly make our way to the colorful village of Namche. We get in Namche towards the afternoon and stay our night there.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

This day we trek for Lukla where this all started. This is a steep downwards trail accompanied by the scenic views of the mountains, the sacred Mani walls. And the milky white Dudh Koshi River adds ambiance to our journey as we continue on with it.  This will be our last day in the mountains. After we reach Lukla, we have a lot to celebrate. The team spirit and the invaluable experience is what you take home and we bid farewell to the mountains. We party and then relax the night in Lukla.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

We catch a thrilling and scenic flight again from Lukla to Ramechhap, accompanied by our memories of accomplishment and the mountains. Drive back to Kathmandu, relax, and cherish the Everest Base Camp trek.

Accessing this Everest Base Camp Trek

A flight to Lukla or a trek in from Salleri, we have multiple options to access this Everest Base Camp Trek. The accessibility of the scenic hub – headquarters of the Solukhumbu Region depends upon the quality of the roads. However, they can be accessed by flights too. Adding an extra four days to the trip, this would act as a prelude to the great climb ahead.

 

Best time to go to Everest Base Camp Tour

Although Everest Base Camp Tour is done all year round, March to May and September to November are considered the best seasons for the expedition due to the warm climate and favorable weather.

However, in the past, every expedition and every season has provided a unique experience. Winters can be promising as we see the areas covered by a thin layer of snow and there are much fewer expeditions sharing the trail.

 

Accommodation during the Everest Base Camp Trek

There are several well-accommodated lodges and tea houses while on the Everest Base Camp Trek. We would recommend you to have a mixture of luxury lodges and local tea houses to stay for nights while on the trek.

 

Unique Ways to do Everest Base Camp Trek

During winters, the trails are relatively quieter than in the spring, so we get the pure serenity of nature. If you can afford more time, we can trek from Salleri, the Lower Everest Region. This way, we acclimatize our body more and also get in sync with the local culture and the mountains.

 

Shortening the Everest Base Camp Trek

Using Helicopter for Return (9-10 days)

If you run short on time, a helicopter can be arranged from Gorak Shep or Namche Bazaar that can cut short at least 4-5 days. However, incorporating the aircraft only up to Lukla, and taking a flight from there would be more budget-friendly.

 

Short Everest Base Camp Trek with View of Mt. Everest

If you have minimal time, a distant view of Mt. Everest can be done through a shorter trek. Instead of the Everest Base Camp expedition, we can trek up to Namche or Tengboche. It is not a bad option, either.

 

Extending your Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest Region is composed of four glacial valleys running down from the Himalayan ranges. The route is networked to the Everest Base Camp route, and we can also trail through that chain.

 

Gokyo Lakes &Everest Base Camp Trek (16 days)

Gokyo lakes take us to a small village of Gokyo. This route is a combined route to Everest Base Camp Trek through Gokyo. The trial adds a viewpoint of Gokyo Ri (5357m), which provides a beautiful view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu.

 

Three Passes Trek (19 days)

If you’d like to extend your Everest Base Camp Trek, consider trailing through three passes and three viewpoints of about 5000m. It would provide you with all the highlights of the region. The trek revolves counterclockwise through the Sagarmatha National Park extending the trek up to 19-20 days.

 

More Details about the Everest Base Camp Trek

Trekking Group

Generally, for the Everest Base Camp Trek 10 trekkers is considered the best number according to our findings. There is one leader, assistant guide (6 trekkers = 1 assistant guide), and Sherpa porters/carriers (2 trekkers = one porter) to make this trip successful even if some uncertainties occur. However, upon client requests, we can also arrange a trek for more than ten people or a private trek too.

 

Accommodation during Trip

During the whole duration of Everest Base Camp Trek, you will spend three nights in 3-star hotels. Eleven nights in local standard tea houses while on the trek. The three-star hotels are well accommodated for the facilities whereas, in the local tea houses, you’ll be provided mattresses and warm blankets. However, we suggest you carry your sleeping equipment.   All accommodations in the Everest Region are on twin sharing basis. However, arrangements can be made if you want a private room for yourselves in some places.

 

Food and Dietary Restriction

During Everest Base Camp Trek, we provide three times meals, (Breakfast, Lunch, and dinner) with tea and coffee. Many lodges at the expedition cook a variety of vegetarian cuisines like Italian, Continental, and Indian, etc. The foods contain a lot of garlic for acclimatization purposes. We would discourage you from drinking beer or whiskey or meat items as they increase the chances of getting sick while trailing the heights. The dinners and breakfast will be served in the lodge we stay for the night. The lunch will be made on the way to the destination. We will have a farewell dinner and breakfast in Kathmandu. Please let us know beforehand if you have any dietary plans.

 

Water

We suggest you buy water purifying tablets along the way and carry a bottle of a couple of liters. Purchase water bottles would only encourage pollution in the region. You can use water taste enhancers to cover up the unpleasant taste of the tablets.

 

Altitude Acclimatization

Trailing up then the height of 2500 m can increase the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Altitude Acclimatization is the key to avoid acute mountain sickness. Make a slow climb to help your body acclimatize. Drink plenty of liquid-like garlic soup that helps the body with the process. There are drugs like acetazolamide (also called Diamox) that help the body maintain the amount of oxygen. However, our trips itineraries are designed, keeping in mind the time for acclimatization for a human body.

 

Local Trekking Leaders and Trekking Crew

The most significant thing in our Everest Base Camp Trek is the professional, talented, well mannered and diligent trek leaders. The trek is led by a very gifted and experienced trek guide. Our trek supporters are the ones who know the area and are the local trekking guides and porters. Nepali guides have significant knowledge about the geography, climate, floras, and faunas of the region. We have our leaders selected based on their experiences in the wilderness, professionalism, leadership skills, and their friendly approach towards the trekkers. Additionally, the following categories are put in the table before we chose our employees.

  • Trekking Guide Training
  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid
  • Eco Trekking Workshop and Adventure Meet
  • English Language
  • Conservation and Biodiversity
  • Rock climbing, Ice Climbing, and Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

Preparing for the Challenge

Terrain

The terrain in the Everest Region varies as we move along the route. During Everest Base Camp trek, we pass through valleys, forests, mountains, and steep paths. Trekkers must be healthy to be on this trek. This trek takes us to 5545m of altitude and some; people might have symptoms of altitude sickness despite precautions. The accurate distance cannot be measured due to the lack of accurate maps. However, we would be delighted to talk to you through the trip if you have any worries about your fitness at any age.

Weather

Nepal has cold winters, hot and wet summers, pleasant autumns, and moist winters. The best time for the Everest Base Camp trek would be sprung. However, every season has a unique specialty and delighters.

 

Fitness Level

Everest Base Camp Trek requires a reasonable level of fitness maintained. One must be used for some exercise. However, your gears and sleeping bags will be carried by porters and animals. So your daily pack will be light and just, the altitude trail can seem a significant issue. We walk daily, and with, days, you must feel fit and healthy and push your limits. We expect our fellow participants to get used to exercise and train hard before the Everest Base Camp trek. However, we design our treks equal to every gender or age. We believe that trekking is not a race and a collective trail. So there is equal participation of all the trekkers.

 

Vaccinations

We recommend vaccinations for diseases like Malaria, Small Pox, Typhoid, Titanus, Meningitis, Rabies, Hepatitis and, Polio to be on the safer side. That may be the best precaution to be taken before the Everest Base Camp Trek. Please consult your doctors and carry your health certificates if they are required in any case.

Passport and Visa

All nationalities except Indians require a visa. A visa can be easily acquired through different embassies or Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) upon arrival. To obtain the visa at the airport, you’ll have to wait in a queue, but this is the easiest way to get one. You’ll be required to submit a passport size photo along with fees in US dollars or equivalent convertible currency. Please note that the costs and regulations for visa change frequently so please be updated with the contemporary rules with your nearest Nepalese embassy or consulate.

 

Environmental Care and Sustainable Tourism

Tourism Industry depends upon the conservation of fragile nature. And we want our future generations to enjoy the beautiful Himalayas just as we do with our clients. With increasing trekkers, increases our responsibility towards the environment. We make sure our customers enjoy every bit of the trip with no harm to nature. We evade the damage by carefully designing our itineraries, educating guides, and having an active environmental policy that is persistently reviewed. Our team is ensured to follow the environmental policy and also encourage the trekkers to help preserve the precious Himalayan eco-system.

 

Transport

We in Peregrine Treks and Tours chose low emission vehicles that are fuel-efficient and environment-friendly. We use local cars whenever possible, to decrease per person emission and also support the local economy.

 

 

Purchasing and Local Producers

We try to use local products as much as possible to avoid transportation from around the world. This way, we conserve our eco-system and also support the local economy at the same time.

Note:

It is recommended that you buy yourself some extra days. Arrive in Kathmandu a day before the departure date. You can use the extra day for purchasing equipment, gears and also have some rest before the grand trail that you’re up to. Buying you some spare time after the trek will cover-up in case the flight from Lukla to Kathmandu gets delayed or canceled due to unfavorable weather. So the extra days will help you not to miss your International flight.
During our trip, there may be various political, climatic, and multiple other factors are beyond our control and have a chance of altering our itineraries although the alteration may not happen significantly, if any adjustment necessary, the leader will decide the best alternative taking into consideration the group’s interests. If any change is made, we make sure that it has the least effects in our itineraries and plans. However, we cannot be responsible for the result of delays in such cases.

 

Flight Delays in Kathmandu and Lukla

Lukla Airport is situated in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. Therefore, a flight taking off and landings are considered difficult sometimes. Plus, the weather is very unpredictable and can be changing every few hours resulting in flight delays and cancellations.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the main transportations from the airstrip at Lukla. Their service is very much reliable. However, if any delays or cancellations occur due to the weather conditions, we will help you incorporate a helicopter which can carry 4-6 persons at a time. This can cost an extra of US $500 to $3000 per person depending upon the number of passengers. The participant must pay the cost at the time of service. Later, it can be submitted for reimbursement through a travel insurance company. US dollars cash or credit cards (Master Cards, Visa Cards, and American Express) are accepted for the helicopter service. All payments require 4% bank fee, which goes directly to the bank.

The helicopter can fly if the visibility is 1500 or greater. Twin Otter and Dornier fly if the visibility is 5000 or greater as per Nepal Civil Aviation rules. If the weather is extreme and visibility is under 1500, the helicopters are not operated. In such cases, we will schedule the flights to the nearest date available. If the weather gets worst day by day, we will be providing you with alternative trek options.
