Overview

Buckle up and get yourself ready for the adventure of a lifetime to the base of the tallest mountain in the world. Known as Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma in Tibetan, Mt.Everest boasts an impressive height of 8,848 meters from sea level. So, prepare to be swept off your feet and embark on a life-changing journey of the unparalleled Everest Base Camp Trek with our comprehensive Everest Base Camp Trek with Scenic Heli Tour Package.

Our journey begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Since weather conditions can be unpredictable later in the day, we opt for an early morning flight to ensure a smooth and safe arrival. The flight itself is an exhilarating experience, offering panoramic views of the majestic Himalayan range as we soar through the clouds toward Lukla. Upon landing at Lukla Airstrip, we are greeted by the picturesque surroundings of this unique mountain village. The Lukla Airstrip, officially known as Tenzing-Hillary Airport, holds a special place in the hearts of trekkers as it serves as the gateway to the Everest region. After completing the necessary formalities and obtaining our permits at Pasang Lhamu Gate, we set off on foot toward Phakding. We spend the night in Phakding, allowing us to rest and rejuvenate before continuing our trek the following morning. The next day we will hike to Namche Bazaar, a vibrant and bustling Sherpa town nestled in the heart of the Everest region. En route, we will start catching glimpses of Mount Everest. We hike alongside the Dudh Koshi River unveiling the captivating beauty of the region. We will pass through cascading waterfalls, charming suspension bridges, and verdant forests. Eventually, we arrive at Namche Bazaar, where we will spend two days acclimatizing to the high altitude. This strategic pause allows our bodies to adjust gradually, reducing the risk of altitude-related ailments. Namche Bazaar, often referred to as the "Gateway to Everest," is a vibrant and culturally rich Sherpa town. Here, we have the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the unique atmosphere, exploring the bustling markets and cafes. From Namche Bazaar, we will make our way towards Tengboche, a scenic destination in the Khumbu Region. One of the highlights of our journey is the renowned "Tengboche Monastery," the largest gumba in the area. After immersing ourselves in the monastery's serene atmosphere, we continue our trek to Dingboche, which is often referred to as the "summer valley." Here, we will spend two days acclimatizing, allowing our bodies to adjust to the altitude. With Dingboche behind us, our ultimate goal is to reach Everest Base Camp. Setting off early in the morning from Gorakshep, we'll have a hearty lunch before leaving our belongings at our accommodation. Then, we'll embark on the awe-inspiring hike to Everest Base Camp, where we'll have the opportunity to capture incredible photos and take in the majestic surroundings. Returning to Gorakshep, we'll spend the night, cherishing the memories we've made. The following morning, after a satisfying breakfast, we'll commence our hike to Kala Patthar, known for offering the most breathtaking view of Mount Everest. Taking our time to soak in the unforgettable scenery, we'll eagerly await the arrival of our helicopter, which will provide a bird's-eye view of the Himalayas and Everest. After an exhilarating flight, we'll touch down in Lukla. Upon reaching Lukla, we'll take a moment to celebrate the end of our remarkable journey and reflect on the mesmerizing experiences we've had. The next day, we'll board a flight back to Kathmandu, carrying with us the memories and sense of accomplishment from our extraordinary adventure.

Itinerary

Upon your arrival in Kathmandu, our airport representative will warmly receive and extend a warm welcome to you. Once you are in our care, we will ensure that all your travel requirements are attended to. We will assist you in smoothly checking into your designated hotel. Since there are no planned activities for the day, you have the option to explore the nearby area on foot or simply relax in your own rooms.

Starting our day early in Kathmandu, we indulge in a satisfying breakfast before embarking on an extraordinary journey to the airport, followed by a thrilling flight to Lukla. The flight itself is an unforgettable adventure, thanks to the airport's remarkable altitude and unique geographical location. Upon arrival in Lukla, we are introduced to the porters who will accompany us and assist with our luggage throughout the trip.

From Lukla, our trek officially commences as we make our way toward Phakding, where we are treated to awe-inspiring views of Kusum Kangraru. Along the way, we pass through the National Luminary Pasang Lhamu Memorial Gate, where our presence on the trail is registered by the authorities. Crossing suspension bridges, trekking alongside the Dudh Koshi River, and taking short breaks for refreshments, we eventually reach Phakding. 

We kickstart our day in Phakding with an early wake-up call. After savoring a delicious breakfast, we dutifully hand over our luggage to our dedicated porters. Eagerly, we embark on the trail to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Sagarmatha National Park. Along the way, we will make a stop at Manju to obtain the necessary permit to enter the park. 

The initial leg of our journey consists mostly of a gentle downhill descent. The path leads us through a mesmerizing landscape adorned with blooming rhododendrons. After reaching Jorshalle, we pause for a well-deserved lunch before commencing our ascent through the lush woods of Himalayan pine and cedar.

An exciting moment awaits as we cross a prominent suspension bridge, where weather and clarity permitting, we may catch our first breathtaking glimpse of the majestic Mt. Everest. As we continue onward to Namche, we will encounter numerous suspension bridges, including the renowned Hillary Bridge, an impressive engineering marvel, and one of the highest and largest bridges in the entire Khumbu region. Our path follows the gentle flow of the Dudh Koshi river guiding us to the renowned settlement of Namche Bazaar.

During our two-day stay in Namche, we have the opportunity to acclimatize to the altitude, explore the bustling local markets, and bond with our fellow colleagues. As we venture out for short hikes, we are treated to tantalizing glimpses of Everest and other awe-inspiring peaks, a testament to the indescribable beauty of this region.

Throughout our stay at the guesthouse in Namche, we are provided with hearty breakfasts, satisfying lunches, and nourishing suppers, ensuring that we have the sustenance we need to fuel our adventure and make the most of our time in this enchanting place.

After enjoying a satisfying breakfast, we will prepare ourselves for the day's adventure. Our journey will be filled with delightful moments as we meander through the gentle slopes, relishing the breathtaking vistas of Ama Dablam and catching occasional glimpses of the majestic Everest. As we make our way forward, we will gradually descend traversing through picturesque rhododendron forests. Along the way, we will encounter a stunning suspension bridge, its graceful structure serving as a gateway to Phunki Thangka, where we will pause for a well-deserved lunch. During this part of our trek, we will also encounter remarkable stupas that hold great significance. The Tenzing Norgay Foundation has built a stupa, honoring the legendary Tenzing Norgay, while another stupa pays homage to Pasang Lhamu Sherpa, Nepal's pioneering female climber. Continuing our journey, we will reach Kyangjuma, a pivotal point where the paths to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Ri diverge. We will follow a consistent and straightforward path that descends deeply into the Dudh Koshi Valley at Pungki Thanka. From there, we ascend the right slope of the Dudh Koshi Valley, gradually making our way towards Tengboche Monastery. As evening falls, the Tengboche Monastery opens its doors, inviting us to witness a captivating ritual. Afterwards, we will head towards our lodge for dinner and have a well-needed shut-eye.  

We have an early morning breakfast at Tengboche. We walk along challenging and uneven trail paths that lead us through a variety of landscapes. We traverse across steep, windy, and dusty terrain until we arrive at Lower Pangboche. After approximately an hour's walk from Lower Pangboche, we reach Samare, where we have our lunch for the day. Descending through beautiful forests, we cross the Imja Khola and enjoy breathtaking views of mountains like Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Lhotse, and others. At this point, the paths leading to Pheriche and Dingboche diverge. As we head towards the Dingboche route, the presence of large trees becomes less frequent in the surrounding area. Eventually, we enter regions where trees are scarce. As we climb to a viewpoint, we are greeted by the sight of the Taboche and Chola Che mountains. Today's trek is relatively more efficient, as we won't lose as much altitude compared to other days. The journey continues through meadows until we reach Dingboche, which is also known as the "summer valley." From Dingboche, we catch our first glimpse of the legendary Island Peak. We will have dinner and stay overnight in a teahouse at Dingboche.

As a part of the acclimatization day, you are able to hike to the top of the Nangkartshang peak, which has an elevation of 5,083 m. The walk to reach the top of Nangkartshang peak takes approximately 2-3 hrs, and from the top, you will be able to see the beautiful views of Mt. Tawache, Ama Dablam, Island Peak, Lhotse, Everest, and Pumori. There is also the option of visiting Chhukung Ri (5546m) altitude which is a very popular trekking peak in the Khumbu Valley. After the short hike we will rest in our lodge or engage in various activities like playing cards and so on. 

Today's adventure begins with a direct ascent to Dingboche Hill as we explore the surroundings of the Phirinche Valley. Our trekking guide will then lead us for one to two hours along increasingly steep slopes until we reach Thukla Dhugla, where we will have our lunch. To get to Dughla, we'll trek through a wide valley floor, passing by the trekkers' aid station in Pheriche (4240 m). As we hike to the top of the hill visible from Dhugla, we feel a sense of awe and bliss because the majestic Himalayas surround us. Additionally, we encounter numerous memorials that pay tribute to climbers who tragically lost their lives on Mount Everest. Continuing our walk, we are treated to breathtaking views of the magnificent Lobuche peak. After a short while, we will arrive at a teahouse in Lobuche, where we will take a brief rest. Then, we embark on a short hike to a viewpoint that offers a panoramic vista of the Khumbu glacier and our next destination, Everest Base Camp. 

On the ninth day of our adventure, which holds great significance, we will finally reach the Everest Base Camp. We will wake up early and have breakfast before traversing rocky paths toward Gorakshep. Throughout the journey, we will be surrounded by mountains on both sides. As we traverse glacial routes and ridges, we will eventually arrive at Gorakshep, where we will have lunch and leave behind most of our belongings, carrying only a small bag.

Continuing towards the base camp, we will walk along ridges, occasionally witnessing avalanches in the nearby mountains. Although there won't be much elevation gain, the trek might be challenging due to the frequent ups and downs and the altitude. After approximately two hours of walking, we will reach the Everest Base Camp. This is the starting point for expeditions to Mount Everest. You will have ample opportunities to capture photographs, appreciate the breathtaking scenery, and enjoy your time at EBC. After spending an hour or two at the base camp, we will return to Gorakshep. If the weather permits, we may witness a stunning sunset near Everest from Gorakshep. After retracing our steps along the same path, we will have dinner and spend the night at a nearby lodge.

Today, our objective is to ascend to Kala Pattar (5545m), which provides the most remarkable vistas of Mount Everest and the breathtaking Himalayan range. We will wake up before sunrise to ensure we don't miss the awe-inspiring phenomenon from Kalapattar, where we will witness a truly stunning sunrise in the Himalayas. It is important to be cautious of altitude sickness due to the high elevation at Kala Pattar. The journey to Kala Pattar involves a demanding ascent, but the rewards are well worth it. From this vantage point, we can behold over 20 peaks, and the location offers a 360-degree view. Mount Everest appears very close, as if within our reach when we stretch our arms. Our helicopter will receive us in the afternoon. As we soar through the sky, the view of the Everest Region and its majestic peaks will leave you in awe. The sight is truly a feast for the eyes, etching itself into your memory forever. The mighty Everest, the highest peak in the world, stands proudly among its neighboring giants. Its distinctive triangular shape dominates the skyline, commanding reverence and admiration. Its summit seems to pierce the heavens as if reaching out to touch the infinite. As our helicopter maneuvers through the valleys and between the peaks, you'll witness the raw and untamed beauty of the region. The deep valleys are carved by powerful rivers and adorned with lush greenery, providing a striking contrast to the towering white giants above.

As we reluctantly depart from this mesmerizing panorama, the memories of the Everest Region will forever be imprinted in your mind. The helicopter will land at Lukla and we will head to our lodge for the last day of our trip.

As the morning sun rises, it brings about a sense of happiness and satisfaction within us. We gather our belongings and get ready to embark on our journey from Lukla to Kathmandu in the early hours. It is common for flights in Lukla to be delayed or even canceled due to the weather conditions. Additionally, flights tend to depart in the morning to avoid adverse weather in the afternoon. Once we arrive in Kathmandu and settle into our accommodation, the rest of the day is yours to enjoy. You can choose to indulge in some spa treatments, embark on a short day trip to explore the UNESCO historical sites, or simply unwind at the hotel. Take full advantage of your time in Nepal and make the most of your trip. Finally, spend the night at a hotel in Kathmandu. 

It's time to say farewell to Nepal after completing the  Everest Base Camp trek. You'll be driven to the international airport three hours before your planned international flight to your next location. We hope that we have provided you with unforgettable adventures in the Everest Himalaya. If you so wish you can extend your stay in Nepal as well to tour the numerous interesting locations that Nepal has to offer.  We hope you keep the time we spent together cherished in your memory and suggest us to your friends and family for their Nepal trekking vacation. This is not “Goodbye” but as we say in Nepali ‘Feri Bhetumla’ means “Till we meet again

FAQ's

The ideal time to embark on the Everest Base Camp trek is during the spring season, which occurs before the monsoon, and the autumn season, which follows the monsoon in Nepal. These periods offer the most favorable weather conditions and ensure a fantastic overall trekking experience. Here are the specific months to consider: Spring Season (March to May): Widely regarded as the optimal time for the Everest Base Camp trek, the spring season provides stable weather characterized by clear skies, mild temperatures, and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. The trail is adorned with vibrant rhododendron flowers in full bloom, enhancing the already scenic landscape. Keep in mind that this is a popular time for trekkers, so some crowds are expected. Autumn Season (September to November): Another excellent period for the Everest Base Camp trek is the autumn season. During this time, expect clear skies, refreshing air, and excellent visibility, allowing you to enjoy panoramic vistas of the Himalayas. Compared to the spring season, the trail is relatively less crowded, offering a more serene and tranquil experience. It's important to note that temperatures can drop significantly at higher altitudes during this season, so proper gear is essential

The average temperatures during the Everest Base Camp trek vary based on the season and location along the route. Here is a temperature guide for the different seasons: Spring Season (March to May): Gradual temperature rise with lower altitudes around 10°C to 20°C (50°F to 68°F) during the day and higher elevations ranging from -10°C to 10°C (14°F to 50°F) during the day. Nighttime temperatures can fall below freezing, ranging from -15°C to -5°C (5°F to 23°F).

Temperature variations occur due to cloud cover and rainfall.

Yes, being in good shape is important for the Everest Base Camp trek. It is physically demanding, with long days of hiking, steep terrain, and high altitudes. Being in good physical condition improves endurance, and strength, and helps with acclimatization. Prior training and regular exercise are recommended to prepare for the trek. Hiring a guide and consulting with a medical professional can provide additional support.

During the Everest Base Camp trek, you will stay in tea houses or lodges. These basic accommodations provide small rooms with beds, shared bathrooms, dining areas, and simple meals. Electricity, hot showers, Wi-Fi, and mobile network coverage may be limited. It's advisable to bring essential items like a sleeping bag, toiletries, and a headlamp for added comfort.

Shower and laundry facilities along the Everest Base Camp trek can vary. Showers are available in teahouses, but hot showers may come at an extra cost and be limited. Laundry facilities are less common, and many trekkers prefer to handwash clothes due to limited drying options.

Although Mount Everest is not directly visible from Base Camp due to the presence of other towering mountains, you will catch glimpses of this majestic peak during your entire trek. For the most breathtaking view of Everest, Kala Patthar stands as the ultimate vantage point.
