Trip introduction

Everest Base Camp trek is the most popular trekking adventure experience in the Everest region of Nepal. During our Everest Base Camp(EBC) trek, we will get amazing views of the world’s highest peak Everest; along with Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. Along with views, this trek is an opportunity to explore the culture and traditions of local Sherpas; the unsung heroes of Everest. From visiting local Buddhist monasteries and Chortens to spotting Himalayan flora and fauna; we get the chance to follow the steps of the great Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in 1953. Click Here to watch video documentation of this trek.

Overview of Everest Base Camp Trek

After your arrival at Kathmandu Airport followed by sightseeing around the world heritage sites (optional) and necessary trek preparation, we fly to Lukla on a scenic mountain flight. Then we start trekking towards Phakding. Initially, we follow the Dudh Koshi River crossing over various suspension bridges, through dense forests and arrive at the Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar. Well, we design our Everest base camp trek itinerary professionally to minimize the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness. Hence, we acclimatize at Namche Bazaar which is a major hotspot for trekkers and adventure lovers.

Continuing, we trek towards Tengboche, Dingboche and Lobuche. At Tengboche, we visit an ancient monastery where we get to see their traditions and rituals. From Lobuche, we cross Gorakshep. And finally, we step into the base camp of the highest mountain in the world. Then while returning we will also have great panoramic views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse and other neighbouring peaks from the popular viewpoint of Kalapathar. Then after we will follow the same route down to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.

Special Note:

Trekking Terrain
Everest Base Camp Trek has varieties of terrain during the trek. The initial section of the trek passes past the lush hills and green valleys. However, at the higher altitudes, there are high passes and rocky terrains as you proceed to the Everest Base Camp and to the challenging spots such as the Kala Patthar or the Gokyo region. While the itinerary is designed with proper acclimatization for the trekkers, you still need to understand the challenge that trekking in such high altitudes pose, even if the trail doesn’t seem much challenging. Slight headaches and shortness of breath may still be there as you move. You may not have accurate distances for the places but the guides accompanying you are well aware of this and shall provide you with proper guidance. We shall interact with you if you need further information.

Weather (…and bad weather periods)
The rainy season or the monsoon season starts from mid-June and continues till September. However, there may still be rains in early October. Spring and Autumn seasons have clear weather and dry as well. The temperature in the higher attitudes is influenced by the local conditions such as the altitude itself. The weather may change on short notice in higher altitudes. October to November/December is the most popular season for Everest Base Camp Trek.
The flight to and from the hill town of Lukla is relatively uncertain due to its typical geographical location. Flights are often delayed due to bad weather conditions due to which most of the flights start early in the day. Trekkers are therefore advised to spare some days for such delays during the trek owing to the bad weather periods.

Expenses of the Trek
The details of the expenses included and excluded are mentioned in the respective sections. However, it is to be noted that trekkers should bear the expenses of their own food, accommodation, and other activities in case they arrive prior to the starting of the trekking expedition or extend their stay after the tour. Furthermore, in case the flight gets delayed and trekkers are stuck in either trekking areas such as Lukla or in a city such as Kathmandu due to such delay, they should bear the expenses of food, accommodation, etc on their own as these delays take the stay outside the decided itinerary.

Customization of Itinerary
We shall stick to the decided itinerary during the Everest Base Camp trek. However, the trekkers shall have the flexibility to customize the itinerary as per their requirements. If they are physically fit and have the ability to complete the trekking faster, we shall arrange the itinerary accordingly. The only major consideration is that the customization of the itinerary shouldn’t pose any difficulty and threat to the health of the trekkers. All in all, we provide flexibility and customization of the itinerary for the trekkers.

Supporting Staffs during the trek
During the trek, the supporting staff shall include both the experienced staff and leaders from our trekking company as well as the local support crews. Our leaders and trekking guides selected are well experienced in handling various issues, related to the harshness of the environment, traveling in remote and difficult terrains and possess the soft skills of communication, friendliness, good sense of humor and trained with first aid and acclimatization related issues with the capability to handle difficult situations. The local crews (guides, porters) may not have fluency in speaking the English language but they are friendly, hardworking, and approachable. We ensure proper coordination between the supporting staff for your smooth trek. The expenses of supporting staff, their insurance, and other necessities are taken care of.

Gears and Equipment
Trekkers should pack their clothes, trekking gears, and equipment for the trekking to Everest base camp and the surrounding Khumbu region. The details of clothing, gears, and other equipment shall be finalized after discussion with the trekkers. The weight limit for your luggage is 15 kg or 33 pounds and because your luggage shall be carried by porters, you may carry the valuables and anything important in a day pack to be carried on your own.
Scarfs, warm hats, sunglasses with UV protection, and headlamps give protection to your heads while you will need thermal tops, pullovers, down vest, Gore-Tex jackets among others for your upper body. Gloves, mittens protect your hands, and non-cotton underwear briefs, hiking shorts and trousers, fleece or woolen trousers, shell pants are essential for your lower body. Pack socks, hiking boots and running shoes, gaiters, and other gears for feet along with the rucksack and travel bags, and sleeping bags during the trek. Required medicines, toiletries, and other practical items are required as well.

Best Season for trekking
October-November/December is the best season for trekking in the Everest region. This season has fine weather, a clear sky, and thus the best view of the mountains and marvelous scenery along the route. February to April is the dry season in Nepal and the second-best time for trekking. June to September is the monsoon season in Nepal with frequent downpours which makes this the least popular season for trekking for general trekkers, while the botanist and other enthusiast look out for lush vegetation and rare vegetations en route Everest base camp. The skies are clear but the weather can get very cold from December to January/ February while the months of May and June are hot and it can get very warm during the trek.

Health and Related issues
Altitude Sickness is the biggest health-related concern during the trek to Everest Base Camp. Enough rest (acclimatization) and hydration are the keys to avoiding this medical issue besides the medicines such as Diamox, antibiotics for stomach-related problems, and other medicines help trekkers cope with the issue of altitude sickness. Without proper care, prevention, and following of the guidelines related to altitude sickness, the issue of altitude sickness can get worse and put a threat to the life of trekkers. Convey any difficulty that you experience to the trek leader so that immediate action may be taken.
Carry a personal first aid box which shall come in handy to you during the trek. Though the trekking guides and leaders shall carry the required first aid items, carrying on your own provides additional support for the guides.

Get concerned about the use of tap water as these are not suitable for drinking directly without treatment. Carry water purifier tablets and you may buy bottled water during the trek. Foods are available in teahouses that are healthy and safe for consumption. However, you may carry some snacks if you wish to. Consult with us regarding the expense bearing regarding the meals during the whole of trekking.

    Departure Day:

Day 1 : Arrive in Kathmandu (1,300m /4,264 ft)::

A warm welcome to the naturally blessed and culturally rich Himalayan country, Nepal. Upon your arrival at Kathmandu for joining Everest Base Camp Trek, you will be met by a representative from Nepal Mountain Trekkers at Tribhuwan International Airport arrival terminals and he will transfer you to your respective hotel (Hotel Horizon). After check-in at the hotel, you can enjoy the free time relaxing in the cozy room or stroll around the tourist hub Thamel area until the end of the day.

Day 2 : Kathmandu: Sightseeing and Trek Preparation::

You will be beginning your first morning in Nepal with an early meal at your hotel and a visit to the Nepal Mountain Trekkers office at Thamel. After being introduced to our team including tour guide, trekking leader, and director of operations, we head for necessary trekking preparations, getting needed equipment with the initiation of Kathmandu sightseeing around world heritage sites. Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Stupa, Pashupatinath temple, and Boudhanath stupa are UNESCO world heritage sites that we explore till sunset. Overnight stay at hotel in Kathmandu.

Day 3 : Kathmandu – Lukla – Phakding (2,652m/8,700ft): 40 minutes flight, 3- 4 hours trek (Trekking times only)::

After having your early meal, you will be transferred to the airport to catch a short domestic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the gateway to Everest. In just 45 minutes of flight, we get a wonderful chance to view snow-capped mountains and will be landing between the hills at Tenjing-Hillary airstrip in no time. After arriving at Lukla, we get introduced to our trekking crew and start our trekking activity towards Phakding. It will be quite an exciting first day of trekking in the Everest region. Overnight stay at Phakding.

Day 4 : Phakding – Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,280 ft): 5 – 6 hrs::

We have our early meal and start our journey with a few ascends and descends crossing the Dudhkoshi River through a suspension bridge. Gradually moving ahead entering Sagarmatha National Park located at Monjoo, proceed towards Jorasale, and continue the day’s walk until we arrive at the popular Sherpa village of Namche Bazar. Today, we have our quick stop at Chautara and the fabulous views of snow-capped peaks already start to appear. We stay overnight at Namche Bazar.

Day 5 : Namche Bazaar: Rest day::

Today we have our first acclimatization days. It is very important to have proper acclimatization to avoid possible risks of acute mountain sickness or altitude sickness. And during the acclimatization days, it is recommended to get involved in physical activities instead of just taking a rest. We will, therefore, go for a short hike around nearby Thame or simply take a look around Namche bazaar. Here, we also get an exclusive chance to meet like-minded travelers, Everest summiteers and have a close look at the lifestyle of local Sherpa inhabitants. We will stay overnight in Namche Bazar.

Day 6 : Namche Bazzar to Tengboche (3,870m/12,694ft): 5 – 6 hrs::

We start our day after having our breakfast and continue our journey to Tengboche with awesome views of Everest Himalayan ranges. We gradually make our way through beautiful Everest trekking trails, spot alpine flora, and fauna, have our lunch at Phuki Thega, and finally arrive at Tengboche at end of the day. The major attractions here would be a visit to the ancient Tengboche Buddhist monastery with rich cultural/traditional insights and capture close views of Everest, Amadablam, and other neighboring peaks. Overnight stay in Tengboche.

Day 7 : Tengboche to Dingboche (4,360 m/14,300ft):5 – 6 hrs ::

It will be another exciting day of our Everest Base Camp Trek while heading towards Dingboche crossing through beautiful forests, numerous suspension bridges via Imja River, visiting Chortens while exploring rare Himalayan flora and fauna. As we climb higher and gain altitudes, the views become more and more clear. We stay overnight at Dingboche.

Day 8 : Dingboche (4,360 m/14,300ft): Rest Day::

We will be setting up acclimatization day today as it is very important in EBC to let your body adapt according to changing altitude surroundings. Before trekking towards glacier moraines and tougher trails at high altitudes, we get ready for the challenges by going for hikes to nearby hills and monasteries that provide great insights into local cultures and traditions. So, even if it’s called a rest day, it will be a rather active day instead of hiking around nearby hills. And at the end of the day, we return Dingboche for an overnight stay.

Day 9 : Dingboche -Lobuche (4940 m/16,207 ft): 6 – 7 hrs ::

Today we start our day early in the morning after having our breakfast pushing ourselves forward through the small isolated small village of Dughla. After having our lunch at the trails, we slowly climb up towards Lobuche through barren lands surrounded by small shrubs without much vegetation. In this way, we finally arrive at Lobuche where we will be staying for an overnight stay.

Day 10 : Lobuche – Gorak Shep (5,170 m/16,961ft) – Everest Base Camp (5,364m/17,594ft) – Gorak Shep: 8 – 9 hrs::

Leaving behind Lobuche, we move ahead towards our last overnight station during our Everest base camp trek at Gorakshep. Situated at 5100 meters altitude above sea level, there might be a chance of high altitude sickness. However, with our proper acclimatization stops and professionally designed itinerary with experienced guides, the risks of getting affected by altitude sickness will be significantly lower. It will also be the most important day of our trip as we will be stepping at the base camp of Everest, the highest Himalaya on the planet. After capturing the best moments at base camp, we return towards Gorakshep for an overnight stay.

Day 11 : Gorak Shep – Kala Patthar (5545m/18,192ft)- Pheriche (4280 m/14,070 ft): 8 – 9 hrs::

Today before having our breakfast before sunrise, very early in the morning, we head in for the Kalapathher hike to witness the amazing sunrise views over the highest Himalayas, Everest, Amadablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, and other surrounding peaks. After immersing in the natural beauty of panoramic Himalayan views, we return to Gorakshep and descend towards Pheriche for an overnight stay.

Day 12 : Pheriche to Khumjung (3,780m / 12,401 ft ) 6 – 7 hrs::

It will be a long day of trekking downhill through quite a few ascents and descents. Crossing through the wooden bridges, yaks, and jokpos carrying loads. Along the trail, we also witness the locals drying the potatoes in the sun, which is a local staple diet. In this way, we arrive at a large Khumjung village, where we get to explore the amazing cultures, traditions, and lifestyles of local Sherpa inhabitants. And at the end of the day, we stay overnight at the local tea house in Khumjung.

Day 13 : Khumjung to Phakding (2,652m/8,700ft): 4 – 5 hrs::

Today, it will be around four to five hours of trekking from Khumjung village to Phakding. Initially, we descend down towards Namche Bazar first and keep trekking down along the riverbank of Dudh Koshi River. Continually passing through the beautiful rhododendron forests, crossing the permits checking point at the entrance of Sagarmatha National Park, and finally arrive at Phakding. Overnight stay at the local guesthouse in Phakding.

Day 14 : Phakding to Lukla (2,860 m/9,383 ft): 3 – 4 hrs::

In the final few days, while trekking from Phakding to Lukla, we will be walking for around 3 to 4 hours. Upon arrival at Lukla, we celebrate our final night around the foothills of the Himalayas. And get ready for tomorrow’s domestic flight to Kathmandu.

Day 15 : Lukla – Kathmandu::

After getting up in the morning, we have our early meal and get ready for the scenic flight from Lukla to the capital city Kathmandu. Upon arrival at Kathmandu, stroll down across the streets of culturally affluent Kathmandu valley for shopping souvenirs, enjoy complimentary after trekking spa from Nepal Mountain Trekkers, and farewell dinner at a cultural restaurant at end of the day.

Day 16 : Departure Day::

Today will be the final day of our Everest Base Camp Trek, and we all the delightful adventures around Everest Himalayas, recalling the memories, we will drop you at Tribhuwan International Airport for International departures. Farewell, friend.

CLIENTS REVIEW

What our customers say about us

10/10 would recommend!

I spent a month in Nepal and everything I did during that time was organised by Ramesh from NMT. Honestly, I have no idea what I would have done without him! Not only did he organise my trek to Everest Base Camp flawlessly, he also organised a home stay for me in the village he grew up in and a volunteer project at the local school. Both the trek and the volunteer project were amazing, life-changing experiences and were accommodated by my guide Manish Simkhada. He made sure everything was running smoothly, always looked out for me (especially when I had too much local wine) and was just an overall kind soul. It’s not easy to put up with me every day for an entire month but somehow he did it without complaint!

Thank you Ramesh and Manish for an amazing month and I will see you next time!

Oh and btw, I highly recommend doing some volunteer teaching at the school. The kids are super lovely and it is a very rewarding and eye-opening experience. Village life was simple and incredibly calming – away from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu.

Life changing experience

Stayed in Nepal for 6 weeks trecking the EBC and the Langtang Valley. Everything was organised perfectly with great daily planning, I was never worried about anything. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking to trek in Nepal.

Great services! A company you can trust

I had a very good experience with Nepal mountain trekkers, the entire booking was done via email and Ramesh managed to design a trip that exactly fit my needs. always with a prompt reply to my emails The first couple of days went as plan until I started facing problems with one of the domestic flights that I had to catch during my trip, after spending hours at the airport the airline canceled my flight and since I had a very tight schedule, the cancellation of the flight caused a major disruption in my trip. My guide contacted Ramesh and he immediately started to work trying to fix the mess caused by the airline, he went above and beyond addressing all my new requests. So my experience with Nepal mountain trekkers couldn’t be better, it is for sure a company you can trust, when everything goes as plan is great, but when things get wrong is when you see who you can count with, and Ramesh was there supporting me all the time.

Everest base camp solo trek

EBC was an absolutely wonderful adventure. The views of the highest mountains are simply wonderful. Ramesh (owner of Nepal Mountain Trekkers) arranged a guide for me who was very careful, helpful and nice person. During the trek, Ramesh also called me several times and asked about the trek and any difficulties if I faced or not. I must say that Ramesh is a very careful, responsible and trustworthy person. This was my first visit in Nepal and I met Ramesh hardly for 2 days. He is now a very good friend of mine. I look forward to the next Nepal trek with the Nepal Mountain Trekkers!

Your Nepalese adventure – Your way!

Our first hike in Nepal and it was incredible!

Ramesh organised our itinerary for my husband and I based on the amount of time that we had. This included a personal airport pickup, our return flights to and from Lukla, a guide and porter for us, and also our accomodation in Kathmandu before and after our trek.

We set out planning to get to Tengboche, as our time was limited, but we were able to take it day by day depending on how we were fairing. As we hiked, we thought, this isn’t as hard as we thought it would be – let’s go further! Our amazing guide named Tika was obliging and set a new route for us mid-hike and we made it all the way to Ama Dablam base camp. Tika was always only a few steps ahead and was happy to tell us the names of all the mountains we could see along the way, the names of trees and plants, and the names of the villages across distant valleys. When we reached our destination each night he was always busy organising our meals, cups of tea, making sure our drink bottles were filled and that we were happy and healthy. He’s a very polite, caring and experienced guide (with great english skills) who we’d definitely request for our next Himalayan experience and would certainly recommend to anyone else too.

We cannot express how satisfied and impressed we were with this company; a well run, honest business that really care for the customer’s experience and safety. Nepal Mountain Trekkers allowed us to choose our own start and end date and plan the trek each day with no fixed or locked in agenda. This type of flexibility is something that you do not get in large group tours. It was our own private tour without the private tour price.

I had the joy of getting sick the day before we left Nepal and Ramesh organised for my care at a local hospital – complete with sorting our insurance and transfers to and from the hospital. He went above and beyond his duty as hotel manager and trekking company operator – he made a difficult time easier. Both Ramesh and our guide Tika came to the hospital to visit and make sure my health was on the mend.

There are many companies in Kathmandu that can take you on a breathtaking hike; but this one truely has the heart and passion for this exceptional place on Earth.

We are already planning our next trip to Gokyo Ri with Nepal Mountain Trekkers – We couldn’t recommend higher! Nepal Mountain Trekkers 100%

Amazing 21 days in Nepal

Namaste,
My wife and I went recently to Nepal for 22 days. We completed the EBC, visited the Chitwan Park, Pokhara and of course the capital Kathmandu. When one is planning a long, grueling, high altitude trekking trip such as EBC, they have many questions like: all gears, lodges, guide, porter or both, permits, altitude sickness and more… But when we just arrived to Horizon Hotel and we have had the pleasure to meet Mr Ramesh owner of the Nepal Mountain Trekkers agency, all the questions and doubts get its response. Indeed, Mr. Ramesh shows extreme flexibility and speed arrangement for your EBC trekking from getting permits for hiking and porter/guide at the same arrival day to Kathmandu. Moreover, on the same night of my return to Kathmandu from the EBC, Mr. Ramesh arrange for us the next tour trip to Chitwan Park and Pokhara with paragliding and also the bungee jump near the Tibetan border. All this in just within an hour of his making calls, he managed to arrange A-Z tour with all the arrangements needed.
I would like really to thank Mr. Ramesh Dhakal from Nepal Mountain Trekkers organized the tour for us. I would highly recommend Mr. Ramesh for his very efficient and professional service. Owner Ramesh is a warmhearted person that listens to your wishes and provides alternatives you probably would not have come up with.
In addition, the porter/guide for EBC Mr. Lapa was really professional, respectful and friendly providing even cultural overview of Himalayan Habitant.
I was able to capture the spirit of Nepal, creating the most memorable experience that I will never forget.

Trek to Everest Base Camp and around the Annapurna mountains

Our spectacular 7 weeks of trekking was planned, managed and led by Shiva Lal Bhatta who is an exceptional leader and guide. Shiva has boundless energy and a wealth of local knowledge that will ensure that you miss nothing on a trek, stay safe and have a truly wonderful and enjoyable experience. Shiva arranged all food and accommodation for our trek and we wanted for nothing. He made us very aware of altitude sickness and made sure we avoided that. We walked over glaciers, across avalanche areas, across rivers, through historic sites and numerous beautiful villages and temples. It was truly the trip of a lifetime and I can highly recommend Shiva as your guide in Nepal and I cannot believe that he could be bettered. The people we met through Shiva and the spectacular scenery experiences he afforded us will never be forgotten. I must also thank Ramesh for his part in helping us enjoy such an exceptional experience.

A spectacular and unforgettable adventure to Everest Base Camp”

On returning home from my trip to Everest base camp, people ask me “how was it?”. I always pause and think: “where do I start? The beautiful forests, the wonderful sounds of yak bells, and the things I learnt from my guide Min Nepali. There was so much awesomeness; it’s very difficult to convey what happened in the two and bit weeks I had with Nepal Mountain Trekkers.
A good start is Nepal Mountain Trekkers organization and friendliness. From the very first contact I made with Ramesh Dhakal there was a good tailoring of the trek to our needs. All matters were well explained and no stone left unturned in Nepal Mountain Trekkers organisation. The adjustment of the holiday to our needs was constant throughout, with our guide Min Nepali was able to change our programmer throughout the trek to adapt to all our wishes. Min acted in a caring and friendly manner throughout the trip.
The accommodation was excellent the whole way up the mountain, the food and drinks options were good (and very filling – I now have a new found love for Dal Baht and yak meat!) and there was plenty of opportunity to meet others travelers and have interesting convivial conversation. Our guide, Min became both a friend as well as our guide 🙂 He was extremely knowledgeable about the environment, enlightening us on our trek on mountain eights, Tibetan culture, and plants. Truly a Renaissance man of the Manaslu Himalayas areas
I heartily recommend anyone considering a trip the Himalayas find these Nepal Mountain Trekkers team to get the most memorable experiences out of your time!

The best two trips of my life, thanks to Nepal Mountain Trekkers

My first trip to Nepal was in 2010, I contacted with Mr Ramesh Dhakal in Thamel and had a great impression; I asked about the activities I wanted to do (Everest Base Camp trek, Annapurna trek, cultural visits to the cities in Kathmandu Valley, sports…). Ramesh explained to me very kindly about all these activities, very deeply, with all the recomendations about the gear, the food, the guide, and made feel very safe, so I felt convinced about doing the activities with the company and no soloing. He told me a very important thing to me: “Here in Nepal we are happy if you are happy, because if you are happy you´ll come back. We are not interested in cheating people in any means”. We discussed the prices and never felt cheated. After that I met my guide Min Nepali, who was with me almost the entire tiem I spent in Nepal, and we became best friends. Ramesh and Min are really wonderful people, taught me a lot and more about Nepal, the nature, the people, the cities, and moreover with their attitude I learned the beatiful people that are Nepali peoples. Also Mr Devaraj Dhakal, the manager of the hotel the company runs, and all the staff made my journey an experience to remember. From temples to jungle to mountain passes (Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Region, Chitwan, Helambu route, Kathmandu, Bakthapur, Patan, bungee jumping, elefant riding…).

And after that…

From that trip I fell in love with Nepal, so in March 2015 I came back to Nepal with my wife, and of course we contacted Ramesh again. We did the Everest Base Camp route with Min Nepali again, this time more than a guide, he was a brother to us. Never felt treated so well. This time my wife also fell in love with Nepal.

From my experience, if you go to Nepal don´t doubt to contact Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Ramesh Dhakal and his staff will make the very best to make your trip a wonderful experience.

Everest basecamp trekking

We met Mr. Ramesh Dhakal during our Everest basecamp Trek. He was very helpful and very kind. He gave us a lot of helpful advices. We stayed his hotel which name is hotel horizon. Although the hotel is in the centre of Thamel, it is very quiet and very nice and clean. We highly recommend Nepal Mountain Trekkers and hotel Horizon. Our guide Ngima Tamang was very helpful and very kind. We highly recommend him.
