Trekking to Everest Base Camp takes you to the closest possible place of the world’s highest point. Mt. Everest Base Camp (5,364 m) gives you the lifelong memory of the Great Himalayas looming on a row. Kalapatthar (5,550 m), the best vantage point of Everest region is the only place from where you see the Everest Summit!
One question that comes in everyone’s mind is: “Can I see the Everest Summit from its base camp?” To your utter surprise, you can’t see it from the base camp. You can see Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Cho Oyo, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Pumori, and many others instead. To see the panoramic view of the Everest Peak, you need to hike to Kalapatthar the following morning.
The Sherpa settlement areas, lush rhododendron, alpine forests and amazing landscapes are equally rewarding. Everest region used to be the residential region of Rai ethnic communities in the past. Nevertheless, nowadays, the Sherpa people are the residents of this region. Therefore, it is also called the Sherpa Capital as well. The ancient monasteries, mani walls and chortens decorated by the prayer flags and wheels are the cultural attractions of best Everest base camp trek.
How to Begin EBC Trekking?
To do the epic trek to Everest Base Camp, you need to fly from Kathmandu to Lukla. The 30-minutes’ flight gives you the best aerial view of the Everest region. The lush valleys, dense forests and snow capped peaks come into your sight. From Lukla, Tenzing Hillary Airport, you formally begin this trek through the Sherpa villages nearby Sagarmatha National Park.
Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorakshep are the stopovers. All these places have hotels and lodges that serve with basic facilities of food and accommodation.
Gorakshep is the last settlement area before Everest Base Camp trek, and it used to be the original base camp till 1953 Everest Expedition. You spend a night at this village because it is the transition between EBC and Kalapatthar. This is the highest place on Earth that one can go without any permit and cost.

Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty
While planning this trek, you might think about Everest Base Camp trek difficulty. For this, you should consider a few components related with trekking. Trekking hours, altitude, trail condition as well as food and accommodation are some of them.
You need to walk along the rugged trails located above 2,500 m for about 5/6 hours every day. Walking along such tracks might be difficult for the beginner trekkers.
Everest region is a popular trekking region in Nepal. There are many tea houses, hotels and lodges on the stopovers. It means you don’t have to worry about food and accommodation facilities in this trek. Annapurna Base Camp trek and EBC trek are popular for comparatively better food and accommodation facilities.
The trekking trail of the last section of Everest Base Camp trek is a little rough. As it lies above 5,000 m, the trail remains wet and slippery as well as snow-covered most of the time. Therefore, you must be a bit more cautious while walking from Gorakshep to EBC and Kalapatthar.
Altitude is the only factor that makes Everest Base Camp trek difficulty something to consider. Most of the time is spent above 2,500 m that means you may suffer from altitude sickness. However, you can prevent this by following some precautions like these:
- Keep yourself completely hydrated.
- Walk slowly by taking enough rest in the middle of the Everest trek.
- Have enough food and sleep.
- Keep first aid kit box in the backpack.
- Talk with the team leader as soon as you feel uncomfortable.
How difficult is Everest Base Camp trekking?
Except some rugged trails, Everest trip is a moderate type of trekking in Nepal. The trails are well-defined having enough tea houses, lodges and hotels for food and accommodation facilities. The higher you climb, the more basic facilities are found. You can’t get all the luxuries you want while going upwards from Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa Capital. High altitude is the only difficulty you find while doing this trek. However, you can avoid Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) as there is enough time for acclimatization during the journey. The walking duration per day doesn’t exceed from 7 hours, especially while descending from the base camp.
Can I customize Everest Base Camp trek Cost?
Undoubtedly, you can customize Everest tour Price. You can make this trip from 1 day 21 days. You can customize this trek to many other variants like Everest Gokyo Cho La Pass trek, Everest Gokyo Lakes trek, Jiri Everest Base Camp trek, Everest Luxury trek, etc.

If you choose this trek, you can have the awesome vistas of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Massifs including Mt. Fishtail (6,993 m).
On the other hand, if you want to walk along the less frequented trails in the complete wilderness, you can choose Manaslu Base Camp Trek.

EBC Trek Cost/Price
Everest Base Camp trek cost is relative to many other factors associated with this. The trekking duration, number of guide/porter, permits, mode of transportation and services are the major ones.
It is natural that “longer the itinerary, higher the cost!” and vice versa. As it is completely a tea house trekking, you don’t need more than a professional guide. Hence, you don’t have to pay unnecessarily extra budget.

You get your Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit at Monjo as it is the entrance to the highest placed national park in the world.
Then, you go across the Hillary Suspension Bridge and Jorsalle Village walking along the Dudh Koshi and the Bhote Koshi River. Afterwards, walking through the steep trail going through Sagarmatha National Park, you reach Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is the largest trading center of the whole Khumbu region, so it is known as the Sherpa Capital as well. The town offers you all the modern amenities like banks, ATMs, hotels, bakeries, restaurants etc.
To be introduced with the climate of the high Himalayan altitude, you have a few things to do here at Namche Bazaar.

This is another acclimatization day during trekking to Everest Base Camp. In the morning, you can hike to Nagarjun Hill (Nangkartshang Peak: 5,073m) if the weather is favourable. Although the trail to the peak is quite challenging, the view is really rewarding. You can have the top- to- bottom- glimpse of Mt. Ama Dablam (6,812m) from the top. In the daytime, you can stroll around the village, which is famous for a long stonewalls made in the course of collecting them during cultivating the field.

Finally, you reach Lobuche Village situated at the foot of Lobuche Peak, which is a trekking peak of Nepal. To avoid altitude sickness, you need to make the travel with the slow pace. Next, you should take enough rest, drinking water and hygienic food.
This is the greatest day of the entire Everest Base Camp trek as you are reaching the most awaited place in your whole life. Comparing to the previous days, today is quite hard trekking as you have to go across the Khumbu Glacier. But the rewarding view of the snowcapped peaks all around, you can measure the trail up to Gorakshep. In fact, until the 1953 Everest Expedition, it used to be the original base camp. It is the last human settlement area of the Khumbu region closest to the base camp of Mt. Everest.
By leaving the backpack at the hotel in Gorakshep, you move towards the base camp. The trail goes past the Gorakshep Lake, once one of the largest glacial lakes in the region. Trekking for about a couple of hours, you reach the height of 5,364m, which is the closest place to from the Everest Summit. In the peak seasons, you come to meet many Everest expedition teams preparing for climbing Mt. Everest.

The appearance of the Khumbu Glacier and the Khumbu Icefall are spellbinding from this height. After enjoying the lively peaks gazing at one another, you climb down to Gorakshep for the night rest.
Although it is the hardest day, it is equally rewarding as well. Early in the morning, you need to set off towards Kala Patthar, the best vantage point of Everest region. You need to reach this destination before the sun rises to have the Great Himalayas in golden colour. All the mountains of the Khumbu Himalayan Range are found looming from left to right.
Watching the Everest Summit glittering in the early sunrays is beyond description perhaps! You can shoot as many photos or videos as you can by keeping the Great Himalayas on the background. The photos and videos will remain as the lifelong testimonials that you have at least once been to the highest place close to Mt. Everest!
Then, you descend down to Gorakshep and have your breakfast. Finally, you descend to Periche for the night station.

Someone with an average fitness level can do this trek. As this is a lengthy trek you want your physical and mental health to be at its best.

Everest Base Camp trek lies in Solukhumbu district of Eastern Nepal sharing its border with the Tibetan Autonomous Region. It is the base camp of the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest (8,848m). This trek rewards you with the snowcapped peaks of the Everest region, Sherpa culture and tradition including flora and fauna of Sagarmatha National Park.
The time you spend at the base camp of Mt. Everest depends upon the itinerary and weather during your trip. When you have to descend to Gorakshep for the night station, you spend nearly an hour or so there. And some trekkers spend the night at Everest Base Camp as well. Generally, the trekkers climb down to Gorakshep, the original base camp until the 1953 Everest Expedition so that they can go to Kala Patthar the following morning. Kala Patthar is the vantage point to have the alluring scenery of the Everest Summit.
Actually, Everest Base Camp trek is done throughout the year except the trails are disturbed due to heavy snowfalls. The heavy snowfall occurs only in winter season. And sometimes due to natural calamities like earthquake, blizzards and glacial flood, it is beyond the expectation to reach the base camp. The best time for Everest Base Camp trek is spring and autumn. The best months for this trip are February, March, April, May, September, October and November. In these months, the weather is fine with clear skies. You can have the best panoramic vistas of the entire Everest region.
Yes, you need but not mandatory. As there are not high Himalayan passes that need climbing gears to cross, it is not required. You have enough time for getting adjusted in the high altitude trekking. More importantly, when you hire a professional trekking guide, you can win over this classic trek easily.
Yes, of course, you can do some basic mountaineering while on Everest Base Camp Trek. There are several famous trekking peaks in Nepal that you can experience climbing them as per your comfort. Island Peak climbing, Lobuje East Peak climbing, Mera Peak climbing, etc. are some mountaineerig packages you can book with us.
On the other hand, doing mountaineering requires some skills to be learned, so it is time-consuming as well. Moreover, without the previous experience of trekking in the Himalayas and peak climbing, mountaineering may turn to be dangerous, too. Therefore, you must consult with the experts sand trainers before trying out for mountaineering.
Theoretically, monsoon season extends between Mid-June and September althogh there are some exceptions in it. If you plan to complete trekking in Nepal before the 10th of June, that will be the best idea.
As of today, a foreign traveler need to accommodate for a 7-day quarantine in a hotel although you must have a COVID PCR Negative Report with you before arriving in Nepal. On the Fifth day, you have to retake the COVID-19 PCR test to assure that you are fit for trekking in the Himalayas.
As the Government of Nepal has already provisioned to import COVID-19 vaccines until the end of February, 2021. On this note, the restrictions on tourism may change for spring season.
Nepal Trekking Routes provides you an experienced porter to carry your things during the trip. In some treks like Annapurna Circuit Trek, Upper Dolpo Trek, Everest Base Camp Trek, etc., you can hire a donkey to transport your things uphill and downhill.
A porter carries up to 25 kg of weight while a donkey can carry more than that. If you want, you can carry your backpack with the emergency stuffs and kits on your own.
Yes, you will. In most of the cases, you can keep your non-trek belongings at the hotel in Kathmandu. Or, you can keep your things in our office as well.
Yes, you need wind/waterproof coat, pants, gloves, and boots for doing Everest Base Camp Trek. In spring and summer seasons, the lowland regions experience high temperature in the day time while mild in the night time. However, the mornings and evenings are mild. On the contrary, temperature of autumn and winter is lower than in spring and summer.
The cost of things like water, wifi, showers, trinkets, tea, alcohol, etc. are higher in higher elevation suchas Everest Region than in the urban areas. Except in Namche Bazar, you cannot use credit cards, so you have to carry cash in hand in Nepalese Currency. You can exchange your currency at a money exchange center around Thamel Bazar. We recommend you to keep around USD 250 (in Nepalese Currency!) with you to manage your additional expenses.
You have two days in Namche Bazar and Dingboche during Everest Base Camp Trek. To minimize the itinerary, you can take only one day acclimatization in Namche Bazar. On this day, you can hike to Hotel Everest View (3,880m), visit the Sherpa Museum, local monastery, and Sagarmatha National Park Office, Monjo. If you want to hike a longer, you can visit the Khumjung Monastery to observe the Yeti Skull (the skull of the abominable creature).
Likewise, during Dingboche acclimatization day, you can hike to Nangkartshang peak (5083m). It takes nearly 4 hours to reach the hilltop from where you have the breathtaking vistas of the Imja Valley and the soaring peaks including Mt. Everest (8,848.86m).
All the guides of Nepal Trekking Routes are government-licensed, experienced, and highly-professional. They are well trained to take a proper care of the clients and provide the best services including hospitality to the latter. They also keep an indepth knowledge on the natural and cultural heritage sites of the trekking regions. They are very good at making rapport with the clients and other colleagues as well. I assure you all that my guides are not less skillful, hospitable, caring, and professional than me.
As our agency operates private and organized trekking, we plan the trips as per the wish of our valuable clients. If you want to join others or you don’t mind others joining you, we shall do Everest Base Camp Trek in a group. Or else, you can do a private trekking in Nepal.
You know Nepali is the national tongue of Nepal. However, being it a multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, and multi-cultural nation, many speak their mother tongues as well. However, the local people of the trekking regions of Nepal also speak English including tourists. Talking about our trekking guides, all of them have good command over English. Some of them also speak other languages such as French, Spanish, Hindi, etc.
As of today, you can do teahouse trekking to all the trekking regions of Nepal. Even the basic teahouses have had latrines (toilets) although they may not have attched bathrooms. In most of the lodges, guesthouses, and teahouses, you can find bathrooms. Similarly, many teahouses also provide hot showers so that you won’t have any problem for bathing.
Due to the COVID-19 Impacts, our agency has revisited the policies of the company. On this note, we don’t have any hard and fast rules regarding postponement of trips. In a mutual understanding, you can do your trip anytime as per your comfort once you book it with us.
I highly recommend Nepal trekking routes to anyone for their excellent services and reasonable pricing.
was a little bit afraid: would we all be able to reach the Everest Base Camp? It was a physical challenge at this altitude, for which we couldn’t prepare ourselves, even if we hiked a lot in the Alps the months before our journey to Nepal.
We did it, also thanks to the great team! The tour was very well organized, allowing us to acclimatize to the increasing altitude and the thinner air. Our health was accurately monitored by our guide, on top of his organizational work, and I felt safe at any moment. We had also to learn the right rhythm for the hiking.
The landscapes were spectacular, the tour was amazing. The mountains, which were always visible in the morning, were incredibly high. Then, during day, the clouds arrived and only allowed us to see parts of the landscape when they moved. The hanging bridges were impressive but even I achieved to pass them.
It was great!! Thank you Narwin, Raj, Okil and Kumar! And also to Shailesh and his wife for the back office organization!!
I think it is hard to find good tour guide in Nepal. However, Shailesh and his team are very reliable and had so great tours. At the Kathmandu tour, the tour guide has PhD(his name is Kumar), so he has a lot of deep knowledge of Kathmandu and Nepali-an cultures and religions. At the Himalaya trekking tour, the tour guide(his name is NaWin) knows everything about Nepal. Even other guide in Himalaya asked our guide where the Mt. Everest and other mountains are…(This is the point I realized it is hard to find GOOD tour guide in Nepal) I heard that all members of Shailesh company has grade A+ of guide school. This is why they are reliable. Throughout the tour, they are very friendly and helpful. Even the trouble happened about porter, the guide took a responsibility. I was just impressed their attitudes to their job. I highly recommend Shailesh and his teams tour.
Together with our guide Navien we hiked to the Everest Base Camp.
I am giving 5 stars, because our travel agency was reliable, flexible and careful, our trip was safe and well organized, and because we had an amazing experience.
Travelling in off-season can be challenging sometimes, because villages might be empty and a lot of hotels are closed; Navien successfully managed our accommodations and restaurants.
Apart from the unforgettable views, the EBC-track is remarkable for its soustainable tourism, as no street for automobiles has been built for construction purposes. Every house you see on your path is built with local materials and sherpas carry only the most important things like wooden walls and food up the mountains. Thank you guys for showing it to us!!!
On our Trek to EBC I pushed towards limits, I partially didn’t even know existed, but felt safely guided all the way. I got good advise on how to cope with the height and thin air, so that we were able to succeed with our 11-day plan. The highlight of our trek was to see the light of the rising sun from the high Kala Pattar. Despite many hotels being closed in the off-season, our guide Nawin lead us to good places to spend the nights. Unfortunately no snowleopard appeared out of thin air, maybe they hid behind the many Yaks we encountered. All in all this trek is undoubtedly an experience, I’ll always remember.
I just recently returned from the Everest Base Camp trek organised by Shailesh Pokharel and Nepal Trekking Routes. A most amazing experience, from the very first contact made with this company till the very end! After making contact with Nepal Trekking Route Shailesh, the CEO, was in constant contact with me – offering advice and information. The welcome we received was outstanding as was the constant attention from him and his staff. Our Guide and porter continued in the provision of excellent service which is clearly ingrained in the ethos of this company – I cannot fault them on any account. Our trip was amazing and was made truly comfortable and rewarding due mostly to the guidance and care shown by our guide, Na Win – a truly remarkable person who was completely comfortable in this harsh terrain. This made us feel comfortable and safe. After the epic journey, Shailesh continued to provide excellent follow-up service until he personally dropped us off at the airport – nothing was too much trouble for him. I can highly recommend Nepal Trekking Routes and I would like to take the opportunity to thank the team for making our trip a memorable experience
