Spending about two weeks admiring the Himalayan panorama, searching for fauna in the Sagarmatha National Park, and learning about the spiritual perspectives in the mountains you will surely learn a lot about the region.
The trek starts from Kathmandu as do all treks in Nepal. After a scenic flight to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region, we walk through dense green forests of pine, over numerous suspension bridges, next to Himalayan streams, and numerous villages where time itself seems to stop.
We walk via Lukla, Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Mong-la, Phortse, and Pangboche, all rich villages. We take a side journey from Pangboche to Amadablam base camp. We eventually arrive at Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar. After taking in 360-degree panoramic Himalayan vistas, we retrace our ways down to Pheriche, Tengboche, Namche, and Lukla, and take a flight back to Kathmandu with an amazing sense of adventure and success.
The primary trekking seasons for the Everest Base Camp are late September through early November and February through May, when Base Camp temperatures can reach as low as -6°C and weather conditions are generally stable.
During the spring season, you will be able to see flowers like the rhododendron in bloom in the luscious forests that we will pass through on the trek. The hills will be green and full of life welcoming you to the region. In the area as a whole, the springtime is perhaps the busiest season.
During the autumn season, the skies are generally known to be clearer and the views of the vistas and the valleys and mountains from the many viewpoints along the trek are absolutely stunning. This time of year is popular among hikers because it offers breathtaking panoramic vistas with less heat haze and cloud cover. An advantage of trekking at this time is having the choice to select one of the area's lesser-known routes, which nevertheless provide breathtaking vistas without the commotion of the more well-known routes.
Everest Base Camp Trek is classified as a MODERATE trek. It implies that anyone in excellent health and with adequate determination can complete the journey. However, rookie climbers would need to make proper preparations for the trip. Experienced trekkers, especially those with high altitude trekking experience, should not have any problems on the hike.

We provide the best professional services while treating every one of our clients like family.
After clearing customs and visas at Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be welcomed by a representative from our office, who will transport you to your pre-arranged accommodation. They will also help you check into a hotel and then leave you alone for the remainder of the day.
You may now go over your hiking packing list and get/hire any items that are missing, such as sleeping bags, trekking shoes, trekking poles, and so forth. Refresh at your hotel and prepare for tomorrow's domestic trip from Kathmandu to Lukla. Stay in a hotel in Kathmandu for the night.
We will be sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley, including the UNESCO world heritage sites of Patan Durbar Square, Swoyambhunath Stupa, Boudhanath Stupa, and Pashupatinath Temple. This journey will take you through centuries of culture, craftsmanship, and architecture.
Following that, an Accessible Adventure Adventure representative will pay you a visit to our hotel for an introduction and tour talk. We'll get to meet our hiking guide, get our gear examined, and have your questions addressed. If anything else is required, we will complete it by the evening. And we need to pack our belongings (we will provide you with a down jacket, sleeping bag, and a duffel bag to pack your things in).
Upon waking up in Kathmandu, depending on the time of your flight to Lukla, we prepare for the trip to the airport and Lukla by grabbing breakfast. Even the journey to Lukla is an adventure of a lifetime. Only a stunning 530 meters separate the ends of the runway due to the airfield's high altitude and geographic location. We meet the porters at Lukla who will assist us on the journey with our baggage.
Trek to Phakding to see a lush, green landscape and a spectacular view of Kusum Kangraru. includes meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as a guest. As we pass through the National Luminary Pasang Lhamu Memorial Gate, the journey officially starts. The Police will make a note of our presence at the entry to the route. After crossing suspension bridges, travelling beside the Dudh Koshi River, and taking a quick break to eat, drink, and rest, we eventually arrive at Phakding. We will choose our accommodations at the teahouse in Phakding with the help of our trekking guide. Depending on when we reach the village a bit of exploration of the village and monasteries can be in order.
Waking up early in Phakding, grabbing breakfast and providing our luggage to our porters, we walk on the trail to Namche bazaar entering the Sagarmatha National Park. The walk will mostly be downhill in the beginning and we will be walking through dry forest trails, rhododendron forests and stone steps and large mani stones. After lunch we begin ascending through woods of Himalayan pine and cedar. Crossing a prominent suspension bridge we might get our first glimpse of Mt. Everest depending on the weather and clarity. We follow the Dudh Koshi to the renowned settlement of Namche Bazaar. Namche is a historic commercial settlement where Tibetan and Nepalese merchants barter textiles, dried meat, and salt. Namche continues to be the principal trading hub in the Khumbu, drawing traders from the Himalayas and the lowlands in addition to being a wonderful place to purchase for traditional products. You will stay in Namche for two days to acclimatize, tour nearby markets, and spend time with your colleagues. We get our first looks of Everest and other peaks while hiking.
Today will be an acclimatization day because appropriate acclimatization is required. Today, we will make the most of our rest day by ascending to a higher level and then descending to a lower elevation at Namche for the night. This is a fantastic method for avoiding altitude sickness and training our bodies to adjust to shifting conditions. There are several stores, restaurants, money exchanges, and mostly motels and lodges geared at hikers; nonetheless, it is preferable to purchase mementos in Namche when returning from the summit.
We will be walking to the Syangboche Airport which lies at an amazing altitude of 3700m, before continuing uphill to the Everest View Hotel for spectacular panoramic views of the amazing peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, Tawache, and other mountains. We stop at the Sherpa Culture Museum that show the amazing lifestyle and culture of the Sherpa people. We also visit the Everest Photo Gallery on the way home. Souvenir and other items can be bought all along the way back.
We could have taken the conventional route via Tengboche, but we picked the route via MongLa and Phortse since the route via Phortse is calmer and the views from the Mong La-Phortse path are spectacular. Phortse is an actual Sherpa settlement located off the major conventional Everest Base Camp paths, with a panoramic view of the massive snow-capped Himalayas.
We begin by walking a pretty level and easy road out of Namche Bazaar, the Everest region's trade centre. Then we climb a succession of steep staircases, with large drop-offs to the right at places. Mount Everest is once again in our sights. We also saw a number of other stunning mountains. In about four hours, we arrive in Mong La.
Mong La is one of the tiniest and most attractive places in the world, perched on a ridge with a breathtaking view of the summits Everest (8,848m), Ama Dablam (6,812m), Lhotse (8,516), Nuptse (7,861), Thamserku (6,623m), all Kongde Peak, and Kusum Kangaru all around us. We eat lunch at Monga La.
We return to Phortse Tenga and walk back up to Phortse Village via the lovely rhododendron forest. You may also take a side journey to a neighbouring ridge for a lovely view of Tengboche, Namche Bazaar, and, of course, the mountains from Phortse Village.
We have a great view of Nuptse, Lhotse, and Everest in the morning. Today's short day begins with a leisurely breakfast. We hike to a ridge where we can see Tengboche Monastery, Namche Valley, and other snow-capped mountains.
The path to Pangboche winds through various cliffs utilised by Khumbu Climbing Centre for mountaineering training for aspiring climbing guides. The route itself is small and steep, with drop-offs to the river well below. We can tell Pangboche is close by since we can see meadows and Chorten. Chortens are built at the entrance to every Sherpa community in the belief that they will keep evil spirits from entering the village until they reach Pangboche, the only large permanent town on the Everest Base Camp trek. Pangboche is home to the Everest region's oldest monastery.
We leave Pangboche and descend steeply to Imja Khola. We walk up for nearly two hours after crossing a suspension bridge above the river. Because hikers seldom reach Ama Dablam Base Camp, it has been an untouched side excursion until recently. Ama Dablam base camp is one of the Khumbu Valley's most underrated locations. We'll pass through views of numerous gorgeous peaks on our route here, Lhotse, Nuptse, Lobuche, Thamserku, Cholatse, and others. We arrive in broad yak pastures and stroll towards a little lake. Following the pathways and gradually ascending. Ama Dablam will become more visible as we progress up the route and have a better view of the entire mountain. We arrive at Ama Dablam Base Camp, which is a large grassland. We are filled with delight and excitement as we stand at the base of the gorgeous mountain. A creek may also be seen running through the meadow. We have our packed lunch and are enjoying the surroundings. You may also visit Mt. Ama Dablam's advanced base camp. The path from base camp (4600) to Advance Base Camp (5400) follows the smooth ridgeline directly above base camp and is a pleasant walk on relatively level ground that takes about 2 hours and provides spectacular views of the surrounding peaks, including Kangtega and Thamserku.
We trek back to Pangboche after enjoying the base camp environment, taking in the views of Pangboche and Tengboche on the way down.
We take our time leaving after breakfast because the journey is short today. Throughout our hike today, we get fantastic views of Everest, Lhotse, Kantega, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and Nuptse. As we climb higher, we encounter more tiny plants, rocky dust, and strong gusts. To avoid a forceful blast of air, always wear a windproof jacket and a complete head mask when walking at higher elevations. Khumbu cough is a prevalent condition here, and preventative measures should be done to avoid these illnesses by properly planning for this trip. When we get in Dingboche, we check into a teahouse and spend the night.
At Dingboche, we will have our second acclimatisation day, which will allow us to keep moving forward without being hampered by rising elevations. While we are thus far into our journey, we must understand that acclimatisation refers to the active days when we climb to a neighbouring higher elevation and return to a lower elevation for resting. As a result, there are two possibilities available to us at Dingboche. We may either walk up to Nangkartshang Peak or continue on to Chukkung Ri for superb up-close views of Mt. Ama Dablam, Island Peak, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Thamserku, Awi Peak, and many others. From the summit, we can also see Pheriche Valley. The stone houses with the snow-capped Himalayas in the background would enchant anybody. As a result, after being fantastically acclimatised, we return to our lodge in Dingboche for lunch.
We leave our tea house in Dingboche and begin a tough rise in the first hand to go over a hill on the trail's southern side. From the summit, you can observe lovely prayer flags, a little Chorten, and beautiful views. Then it will be a steady, rather simple climb to Thukla, where we'll have lunch. There are a handful of rest stops and bakeries nearby. We return to Chukpo Lari after eating lunch there. It will be emotional for anybody who visits places where tributes to Everest climbers are created in their honour.
As we go, we have a great view of Lobuche mountain and even a couple campers there in the spring. After a while, we enter our Lobuche teahouse and end our trip for the day.
Getting up early is advised in order to begin our lengthy walking day even earlier in the morning. Our strenuous trekking day begins with a climb to Lobuche Pass. We arrive at Gorakshep after an hour or two of slowly trudging down a very insecure rocky road. We check in at our Gorakshep teahouse.
A little headache is usual at this altitude, above 5000m. If you are experiencing the same symptoms, you should consume garlic soup and plenty of warm water. Drinking water is scarce in Gorakshep, and the price per bottle is higher at this height. In the event of a water scarcity, fill your water bottle with boiling water or even black tea. Sips must be taken when walking up to and returning from Everest's base camp.
It would be an unforgettable experience to set foot at the highest Himalayan base camp. We are overjoyed at having made it to Everest base camp. We return to Gorekshep with a sense of accomplishment and a priceless once-in-a-lifetime memory. The Khumbu glacier with views of Pumori, Nuptse, and Khumbutse can be seen from Everest Base Camp. Because Everest is hidden behind Nuptse, the greatest views of the mountain will be viewed from Kalapatthar tomorrow morning.
Today, we will wake up very early before sunrise so that we get to experience the phenomena from Kalapatthar where we see the most amazing sunrise in the Himalaya. The altitude at Kalapattar is very high so altitude sickness is something to watch out for as the peak of Kalapatthar lies at an altitude of 5545m above sea level. We begin to get wonderful views of Nuptse in front of us as we trek up the black rocky peak known, and gradually Everest comes in front of us, revealing its breathtaking majesty.
After returning from our morning hike to Kalapattar to Gorakshep, we grab our bags and descend to Pheriche. Includes breakfast, lunch, and supper while staying at the guesthouse.
We get up early in the morning and begin our trekking activities soon after eating our breakfast. As we rapidly drop to lower heights, we notice that breathing becomes considerably easier.
We take a fresh track down from Pheriche (the trail that we did not use before to trek up). We enjoy the stroll through the villages of Orsho and Shomare before arriving at Pangboche for lunch in front of Ama Dablam. We leave Pangboche, cross the Imja Khola, and join the old Everest base camp path, arriving in Tengboche in approximately 2 hours. The path to Namche is easy as it is mostly a descent with periodic ascents. One of the brief ascents is to Tengboche. We descend to Pungki Thanka take another steep ascent to Kyangjuma, and easily walk along the Imja Khola and eventually reach Namche Bazaar.
After walking through the famed Namche Bazaar, we cross the same Hillary bridge, but this time from the opposite side of the hill, connecting us to Jorsale. In this manner, we leave the Sagaramatha National Park entrance, stroll through local village settlements and woodlands, and leave Phakding behind. After crossing the suspension bridge many times over the Dudh Koshi river, we arrive at Lukla. We celebrate our successful completion of the Everest base camp express trek in just 14 days after arriving in Lukla. It is an accomplishment in and of itself. We spend the night at one of the local lodges near Lukla's airport.
As the sun rises this morning, it reflects happiness and a sense of fulfilment among us. We collect our belongings and prepare to travel from Lukla to Kathmandu early in the morning. Flights frequently take departure in the morning due to inclement weather in the afternoon. Enjoy free time till the end of the day after arriving in Kathmandu and settling into your accommodation. It is suggested that you attend a spa, take a short-day excursion to explore UNESCO historical sites, or simply relax at your hotel. Make the most of your Nepal trip. Later, spend the night at a hotel in Kathmandu.
It is time to say farewell to Nepal after completing the Amadablam Base Camp and Everest Base Camp trek adventures. You will 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 Himalayas. We hope you will remember and suggest us to your friends and family for their Nepal trekking vacation.

We began our wonderful tour in Kathmandu before flying to Lukla in the Himalayan foothills. We then shared the tracks and trails for 19 days as we walked from Paphlu to the heights of Amadablam base camp with ebc trek, sleeping nightly in tea houses full of good cheer. We returned to Kathmandu through the breathtaking Lukla pass.
The staff's attention to detail, compassion, and knowledge, and genuine joy and care were all exceptional.
The people of Nepal, as well as the personnel of Accessible Adventure, were always honest, industrious, and inviting.
