Overview

The tallest mountain on Earth, Mt. Everest, is 8849 meters high and located in Sagarmatha National Park in eastern Nepal. While climbing the mountain in its entirety is a feat requiring years of training and preparation along with physical fitness par excellence, the base camp itself is quite a bit easier and can be done by those who are reasonably fit and willing to go through some physical exertion. The base camp itself lies at a height of 5364m, higher than many mountains in the world. The 14-day trip to Everest Base Camp (EBC) is one of the most popular among hikers and mountain enthusiasts due to the magnificent scenery and beauty of Mt. Everest. Crossing the Dhudhakoshi, a continual river created by the melting of the glacial ice of the Himalayas, and walking past the renowned sherpa village of Namche Bazaar on a sloping hill we will move to the villages of Tengboche, Dingboche, and Gorakshep. The route is accompanied by Buddhist monasteries, stupas, and chortens all the way to Gorakshep. You will be able to see boulders engraved with numerous Buddhist mantras written in the Tibetan script as well as colorful prayer flags.  The magnificent Buddhist monastery at the village of Tengboche adds to the spiritual vigor of the trip. When you arrive at base camp and see Everest in the early sun from the Khumbu Glacier, the longest of its type, that is when the journey reaches its climax. Climbing over 4000m you may experience breathing difficulties due to the low oxygen density in the region. Care must be taken however we will take the necessary acclimatization procedures to make the trip easier. 

Every night during the trip our guide will provide you with a detailed account of the itinerary for the following day and will be more than happy to help answer your queries.  

Best Time for Everest Base Camp Trekking

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 region as a whole, 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.

Is Everest Base Camp Trekking for me? 

 Everest Base Camp Trekking is classified as a MODERATE trek. Within the Nepal Trek Grading system, this trip can be classified as a Grade B trip with minimal elements of Grade C.   It implies that anyone in excellent health and with adequate determination can complete the journey. However, rookie trekkers would need to make proper preparations for the trip. Experienced trekkers, especially those with high-altitude trekking experience, shouldn't have any problems on the hike. 

Temperatures on the hike can reach as low as -10 degrees celsius in autumn-winter which is made colder by the high-speed winds that frequent the region. Hence proper attire and mental preparation are essential for the trip. The highest altitude reached on the hike is 5545m at the peak of Kalapatthar. Numerous other viewpoints greater than 5000m exist on the trip including the peak of Nagerjun hill. As such, altitude sickness is a real possibility in this region and therefore proper acclimatization needs to be accounted for.

Waking up early in Kathmandu, we grab breakfast and prepare for the trip to the airport and from there to Lukla. Even the trip to Lukla is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Because of the airfield's great altitude and geographical position, there is only a remarkable 530 meters between the ends of the runway. At Lukla, we meet the porters who will be helping us with our luggage during the trip. 

From Lukla, we begin our trek to Phakding for a breathtaking glimpse of Kusum Kangraru and a lush, verdant environment. I The trip officially begins as we trek through the National Luminary Pasang Lhamu Memorial Gate. The Police will record our presence on the route at the entrance. We finally reach Phakding after walking over suspension bridges, trekking beside the Dudh Koshi River, and stopping briefly to drink, eat and refresh ourselves. Our hiking guide will assist us in choosing our lodgings at the teahouse in Phakding.

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. We will need to get out a permit to enter the park at Manju. 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 at Jorshalle,  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 will cross numerous suspension bridges on our route to Namche including the fabled Hillary Bridge, one of the highest and largest bridges in the Khumbu region. 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 traditional products. You'll stay in Namche for two days to acclimatize, tour nearby markets, and spend time with your colleagues. We get our first looks at Everest and other peaks while hiking. Includes breakfast, lunch, and supper while staying at the guesthouse.

The entire day has been set out for acclimatization as we push 3000m above sea level in altitude. Minor symptoms of low oxygen may appear for some travelers but our body will eventually get accustomed to this.  After grabbing our breakfast, we move towards the Sagarmatha National Park Museum where you will be able to see antique climbing equipment, old photographs of the various previous climbers, flora found in the region as well as the memorandums of Tenzing Norgay and Hillary during their climb. Besides the hall of the Museum lies an Army Camp.  From the museum, we head to Everest View Hotel. Within the many ridges in the region, we see clear views of the Thamserku and other mountain peaks. Lophophorous, the national bird of Nepal, and numerous Yaks are found in the region.  Passing Syangboche Airport

From the Everest view hotel, we can grab refreshments and view the numerous mountains we saw along our trip much closer and with an amazing view. The mountains seen from the hotel include numerous peaks including  Kong De, Kusum Kangaru, Thamserku, and the most beautiful mountain of Ama Dablam. We also get a glimpse of the route we will be taking tomorrow. The mountain of Khungdi La also seen from the hotel is considered holy and thus forbidden to climb. Walking now to the Sherpa village of Khumjung where there is a school established by the Hillary Foundation. A monastery in Namche Bazaar houses the scalp of the elusive Yeti. Namche bazaar offers plenty of exploring options for local shopping, refreshments like coffee and cake, and much more.

After eating breakfast, we'll get ready, take our trekking poles, and start moving in the direction of Tengboche. We will take pleasure in strolling around level terrain on hillsides with lovely views of Ama Dablam and glimpses of Everest. After that, we primarily descend through lovely rhododendron forests and cross a stunning suspension bridge to reach Phunki Thangka, where we will be having lunch.

We will also be able to see a stupa built by the Tenzing Norgay foundation as well as another stupa built under the name of Pasang Lhamu Sherpa the first female climber of Nepal. After walking some more, we reach Kyangjuma where the routes going to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Ri separate. 

In order to see Mount Everest, the consistent and simple path descends at Pungki Thanka deep into the Dudh Koshi Valley. From there, it climbs the right slope of the Dudh Koshi valley to Tengboche Monastery. Tengboche is considered by many to be one of the best viewpoints in the entirety of the Khumbu region. The Khumbu's spiritual hub is here at Tengboche. Although the climb is strenuous, the breathtaking views of Mount Amadablam and, on a clear day, of Mt. Everest and its neighbouring summits like Tobuche, Chola Che, more than make up for it. The Tengboche Monastery opens in the evening where they conduct a short ritual which will be an absolutely amazing spiritual experience.

We grab breakfast early in the morning. Walking along ridged trail routes.  There are several tea houses and lodges that offer boarding and accommodation. We can stop at one of these tea houses for a short break and rest and drink up to rehydrate and re-energize ourselves. After crossing a river we ascend slowly where we might see animals like the Thar, Musk Deer, Yaks, and horses. At the top of the incline, there is an elaborate gate with a large boulder in the corner with a large snake inscribed on it. 

 We continue our journey over steep, windy, and dusty terrain until we reach Lower Pangboche. After around an hour's walk from Lower Pangboche, we reach Samare where we grab our lunch for the day.  Descending through lovely forests, we cross the Imja Khola, and enjoy views of Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Lhotse, and other peaks. Here the routes going to Pheriche and Dingboche are separate. Moving towards the Dingboche route, large trees can be seen to be sparser around the area. Eventually, we reach areas where we will not be able to see any trees in the area. Climbing to a viewpoint we see Taboche and Chola Che. Today's trek may be the most efficient as we won't lose altitude as much as on other days. The route then continues through pastures to Dingboche, also known as the "summer valley." From Dingboche, we see the first view of the fabled Island peak.

Being able to wake up and see the Himalayas from your hotel room is a very fantastic feeling. Waking up to sour second acclimatization day, which would involve a 6-hour hike to an elevation of 5100m. There are two options for the acclimatization walk during the day, one is to climb Nagerjun hill and the other is to Chhukung. The more preferred route is the Nagerjun route as when you climb Nagerjun, a hill on the sides of the Chhukung valley just above Dingboche, after breakfast. The primary idea in acclimatization is to sleep low and ascend high.

Option 1: Climb to Nagerjun 

 The occasionally steep footpath makes for a physically demanding day. At this altitude, climbing the hill may take up to five hours. Never before seen views of Lobuche East (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m), and Ama Dablam are available from this height (6856m). On a clear day, you might even be able to see Makalu, the fifth-highest peak in the world, which offers stunning views over the Pheriche Valley. 

Option 2: Chhukung Valley

Following the Chhukung river, we reach the village of Chhukung where we can grab lunch and spend time in the village. If we want we can also travel to the start of the trail that leads to Island Peak. Trekkers wishing to climb the Kongma La usually stay in the village of Chhukung. Views of Lobuche, Taboche, and Thamserku are also seen from the valley. 

 

After a little break, you begin the ascent back to Dingboche, which takes around two hours. Take a well-earned nap after lunch since when the sun sets over the mountain summits, the temperature may drop quickly. A second night will be spent in Dingboche as well.

Today's journey begins with a direct ascent to Dingboche Hill as we explore the area around the Phirinche Valley, after which our trekking guide will lead you for one to two hours via progressively steeper slopes to Thukla Dhugla where we have our lunch. The trek to Dughla via a wide valley floor, passing the trekkers' aid station at Pheriche (4240 m). Western doctors serving as volunteers on this journey are assisted by the Himalayan Rescue Association, which also provides medical care and advice to hikers. We hike to the top of the hill seen from Dhugla. We feel as though we are in heaven once we reach the summit because the Himalayas are all around us. We also see many memorials with embedded memories of climbers who lost their lives on Mount Everest. This memorial shows the true reality of mountain climbing and which is quite risky even if properly trained.  Walking further takes us to great views of Lobuche peak and walking for a bit more we reach out teahouse at Lobuche.  After a short rest at Lobuche, we go for a short hike to a viewpoint from where we see the Khumbu glacier and our destination for the next day the Everest base camp. From this viewpoint, we see mountains like Pumori, Lobuche, Chinri, Lola Mountain, and others. After spending some time in the viewpoint we return back to our guesthouse for the night. The sunset view is amazing at Lobuche.

On the ninth day, which will be the most significant of our adventure, we will finally reach the Everest Base Camp. Waking up very early to grab breakfast we start by taking leisurely stroll along rocky paths to Gorakshep. All along the route, we see mountains on either side. Walking through glacial routes and ridges we reach Gorekshep where we grab lunch and drop most of our belongings taking only a small bag. 

Moving to the base camp, we walk through ridges where occasionally we might observe avalanches ongoing in the mountains nearby.  Although there isn't much height gain, the walk might be difficult due to the numerous ups and downs and the altitude.  After two hours of walking, we will reach the Everest Base Camp. There are many locations that are prohibited near the base camp. Glaciers and icefall locations are prohibited. This is where Everest expeditions start. During the spring season, Everest base camp becomes a small town. You will be able to meet the many climbers and trekkers making their way to Everest. You can take plenty of shots with your camera, take in the gorgeous scenery, and enjoy your time at EBC. Spending an hour or two at the base camp we return to Gorekshep. From Gorekshep, if the climate permits, we can see an amazing sunset nearby Everest.  After returning to Gorakshep along the same path, we'll have supper and spend the night at a nearby lodge.

The finest vantage point to see Mount Everest's full south face, as well as the other peaks, is Kalapattar, and today we do just that: climb up to Kalapattar (5545m), which offers the greatest views of Mount Everest in all its splendor and the breathtaking Himalayan range. 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. The route to Kalapatthar is quite strenuous as we ascend the peak. More than 20 peaks can be seen from Kalapatthar. There is a 360-degree view from the location where we Everest seems so close, that it’ll feel almost touchable as we extend our arms.  After returning from our morning hike from Kalapattar to Gorakshep, we grab our bags take lunch, and descend to Pheriche through the same route we took till we reach Thukla. From Thukla we take the Pheriche valley route which is one of the windiest locations in the Everest region. Pheriche contains the highest hospital in the Khumbu region as well which can be visited. We stay overnight at Pheriche.

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 to Samare (the trail that we did not use before to trek up). We enjoy the stroll through the villages of Orsho and Samare before arriving at Pangboche where we get to enjoy views of Ama Dablam. From Samare we see the vegetation begin again as we descend to lower altitudes.  We leave Pangboche, cross the Imja Khola, and join the old Everest base camp path, arriving in Tengboche in approximately 2 hours where we have our lunch for the day. The path to Namche is quite easy as it is mostly a descent with periodic ascents. One of the brief ascents in the trip is to Tengboche. We descend to Pungki Thanka take another steep ascent to Kyangjuma, easy walk along the Imja Khola, and eventually reach Namche Bazaar.  We can grab refreshments including alcohol in Namche Bazaar.

Visit cultural and religious sites of Swayambhunath, called the monkey Temple, Pashupatinath, one of the largest temples in Nepal, and Bouddhanath, the large stupa are on our itinerary today. 

Pashupatinath Temple:   One of the oldest Hindu temples, Pashupatinath Temple, is dedicated to Lord Shiva, also known as the "Lord of All Beings." Lord Shiva is the embodiment of the universe's destructive aspect. The Pashupatinath complex is traversed by the revered Bagmati river. For those who pass away on the banks of the river, cremation rites are performed by the majority of Hindus in the Kathmandu Valley.

Swayambhunath Stupa:  The Swayambhunath stupa is one of the most revered Buddhist stupas in Nepal. It is thought to have materialized when, in ancient times, the Bodhisattva Manjushri carved a canyon at Chhobhar using his flaming sword to drain the waters of the huge lake that was Kathmandu.

Bouddhanath Stupa: Lord Buddha's four pairs of eyes are positioned in the four cardinal directions atop the 2500-year-old Buddhist stupa in the Valley, which was erected in the fifth century. This stupa keeps a constant watch over people and their actions. Buddhist pilgrims from Tibet may be seen spinning prayer wheels as they round the stupa.

 You can also walk around Thamel and Asons around the vicinity of your hotel selling handicraft items and locally made trinkets and clothes. Ason, the oldest market in Kathmandu also lies a few hundred meters from your hotel. You can shop for spices, tea, brass statues, and decorative jars in this market.

This day is also kept as a contingency day in case flight delays are faced.

I had always wanted to hike up Mount Everest, so when the chance presented itself, I jumped at it with excitement! I believe it was a blessing for me to go with Accessible Adventure because they offered me no excuse to talk about anything at all.
Every service I had from the cuisine and guesthouses to the porter and guide services was excellent, and I was always given the finest options.
Shiva was my tour guide, and he was a master at what he did. He saw to it that I had all I needed and was at ease.
I'm very happy I traveled with Accessible Adventure since the experience was fantastic!

I was immediately persuaded that I was with the pros thanks to their quick reactions, thoughtful actions, and the greatest trip organization.
One of the most trustworthy tour operators in Nepal is Accessible Adventure, thus I highly suggest them!
