Everest Base Camp Trek – Trip Overview

The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most famous and iconic treks in the world. The trip boasts not only the natural beauty of the Khumbu region but also a chance to immerse oneself in the culture of its inhabitants, the Sherpa. Buddhist mantras, prayer wheels, prayer flags, and various Buddhist monasteries along the path make the trip feel like a pilgrimage.

The trek starts with a flight to Lukla. Known as ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Airport’, it has a short runway and is perched on a cliff. The weather is also unpredictable at these altitudes, which makes the flight an adventure on its own. Finding your way through Dingboche, Lobuche, and most notably Namche, dubbed as the ‘Gateway to Everest’, the trail will take you deep into Sagarmatha National Park, home to some of the rarest flora and fauna. Within 14 days, the entire trek will be over. The Sherpa Culture Museum located here contains all sorts of past physical memories of the Sherpa community. There is also a beautiful monastery called Namche Monastery.

This trek features Tengboche, where the largest monastery in this region is located. Built-in 1916 it features a large statue of Shakyamuni Buddha. Likewise, the Mani Rimdu Festival, an important festival of Sherpa, is celebrated here.  This trek also takes you to Gorakshep, the world’s highest human settlement, where you will spend a night. Above Gorakshep lies, Kala Patthar where you get the most unobstructed views of Mt of Everest (8,848.86 m/ 29,032 ft), along with Lhotse (8516 m/2595 ft), Nuptse (7861 m/2396 ft), and other Himalayan peaks. From the Everest Base Camp, you will get the most beautiful views of Khumbu icefall and other high Himalayan peaks.

The best season for the EBC trek is during spring (March-May) and autumn (September to November). Other seasons possess many difficulties such as the winter season bringing in heavy snowfall and fog and the monsoon season bringing in heavy rain and even delaying or canceling flights to Lukla. The Everest Base Camp Trek requires Khumbu local government permit and Sagarmatha National Park permit. Khumbu local government permit costs USD 17 per person for the first four weeks and then around USD 21 per person beyond four weeks. While the Sagarmatha National Park permits cost around USD 30. It is, however, free for children below 10 years.

Likewise, if traveling through Jiri is planned then an additional Gaurishankar Conservation Area permit costing around USD 30 per person is required. Trekkers Information Management System (TIMS) permit required for trekking in Nepal is no longer applicable for trekking in the Everest Region. The trek is a difficult grade but provided you are physically fit, a prior experience in trekking is not a requirement.

Himalayan Adventure Nepal has been organizing various treks. Our local guides and experienced staffs has crafted the itinerary in a way that accommodates both solo and group travel. We take care of all hassles, leaving you time to simply rejoice in the trip making everlasting memories.

It’s easy to find individual rooms in Kathmandu and low trekking trails, but can be difficult to find at higher altitudes.

Meals

On our trek, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese cuisine and the most common international cuisine (Tibet, continent, Italy, India, etc.). Breakfast and dinner will be served at the tea house or the house menu, where we will spend the night and lunch will be served on the way to the next destination. All meals will be served during the trek and at Kathmandu, only breakfast will be served. The hotel will also offer welcome and farewell dinner for the guest.

Is it possible for me?

Everest Base Camp Trek is a difficult trek but it is highly demanding and suitable for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least 5-6 hours a day with a light rucksack.at least the trekker need to be prepared physically and mentally as you might even need to walk 8 to 9 hours each day. Walking in higher altitude is more physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, if we have good health with average physical fitness, positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination, we can accomplish the trek successfully. It will be better to have exercised and jogging regularly before embark on the trek to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience is preferred but no technical skill is required. It is important that we consult with our doctor before booking this trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform Himalayan Adventure Nepal before booking the trek.
