Everest Base Camp Trek Details

Everest Base Camp Trek  is one of the most coveted pursuit in the Nepalese Himalayas. The eastern Nepalese Himalayan belt comprises a series of towering peaks. Some of these peaks rise beyond staggering 8000 meters. Mt.Everest(8848.86m), Mt.Lhotse(8516m), Mt.Cho Oyu(8188m), Mt.Makalu(8481m) and Mt.Kanchenjunga(8586m) are amongst the soaring peaks that reach the high sky of east Nepal. Everest region that resides in the northernmost reach of Solukhumbu district is home to Mt.Everest(8848m), Mt.Lhotse(8516m), Mt.Cho Oyu(8188m) and other 300 similar mountains. In other words, you can call the district of Solukhumbu as “arcadia for mountaineers''.

Mount Everest Base Camp Trek embodies a traverse through these numerous peaks that stand to welcome you to their sanctuary. Your typical trek to Everest Base Camp is filled with the diverse offerings that the Himalayan district of Solukhumbu has to offer. The initial stretch of the trek itself outlines mesmerizing views of Everest vista which never leaves your sight. Trekking in the Everest region as quoted by many is an “adventure of a lifetime”. And the most intriguing part of the trek is you will follow the classic footstep taken by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay back in 1953 to ever reach the summit of Everest. While the surrounding environment has now changed to a whole new scale, you will encounter several Sherpa villages where you will be staying during the traverse.

Unlike several decades before when there were no hotels available, today a series of hotels and teahouses has been established in the Everest region. Sherpas, who are native to the Everest region and are famous for their exceptional climbing abilities live all across the Everest Base Camp trek route. These groups of people have established teahouses or homestays that are dotted all across the Everest base camp trail. Sherpas are a group of Indo-Tibetan race of people who are believed to have migrated from the neighboring Tibet region long before. Historians believe these groups of people have been living in the high mountainous area of present day Nepal before the inception of time. While the geography and landscape of the Solukhumbu region makes it really cumbersome to sustain livelihood, Sherpas have been happily living in the outskirts of the Himalayas for ages. Their primary occupation includes farming, tourism, animal husbandry and trade. The northern reach of Solukhumbu district borders the Autonomous region of Tibet. While there is no official border, people do trade commercial goods in between themselves.

Preparation for the Everest Base Camp Trek

Proper Preparation is the key to a successful Everest Base Camp Trek. Before commencing the Everest Base Camp, we suggested the following guidelines for the trek preparation.

Before the Trek:

  • Eat a balanced diet of healthy food.
  • Avoid alcohol, smoking, and salty, and junk food.
  • Maintain good physical and mental fitness.
  • For physical fitness, participate in physical training exercises. (Running, swimming, stairs climbing, etc.)

  • For mental fitness, practice yoga and meditation, and do stress management.
  • Consult a doctor and do necessary check-ups if required.
  • Get travel insurance covering medical emergencies and elevation above 5,500 m.
  • Book with a trusted travel agency and plan and take essential guidelines in detail for the trek.
  • Use a licensed guide and porter services for a comfortable trekking experience.
  • Choose the best season and make sure to pack appropriate clothes and belongings.

  • Make sure to follow the guidelines strictly.
  • Make sure to obtain the necessary trek permits.
  • Carry all necessary documents (Travel Insurance, photo, copy of passport, etc.)
  • Stay hydrated (keep drinking and frequent urination to prevent altitude sickness)
  • Acclimatization rest is essential and follow the itinerary schedule.
  • Keep updated with the weather conditions and start the trek.
  • Start trek early and keep track of your eating and drinking habits.

  • Respect local culture and communities.
  • Trek Responsibly (Proper waste management, using reusable bags, etc.)

Everest Base Camp Trek Route

Back in 1953, the first successful ascent of Mt.Everest was made by the British Expedition team. This team, including Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, took the eastern route via Jiri to reach the base camp. Back then, there were no airways infrastructure which made them carry tonnes of goods by carrying it on a mule or by porters. Lukla is a village that lies at the midpoint between Jiri and EBC. This small Sherpa village was gifted with an airport which now serves as the gateway towards Everest. The route to Everest Base Camp begins from this village after a nerve chilling flight through the narrow hilly areas of Nepalese highlands.

From Lukla there is only one pathway that heads northbound towards Everest region. As you embark through this trail, you will reach Phakding first, a small village which usually is the first stopover for Mount Everest trekking. Phakding village sits at the bank of Dudh Koshi river which will guide you all the way up to the base of Everest. From Phakding you will encounter 2 small settlements, Monjo and Jorsalle. Jorsalle is the entry point for Sagarmatha National Park and you will ascend further north from hereon. The next stop on the trek is Namche Bazaar, a dense Sherpa village which is the commercial hub of Everest region. There are lots of pathways that branch off right after or from Namche Bazaar. The trek to Gokyo Lakes and Everest 3 Passes Trek ( Anti-Clockwise) diverge from here.

Our trail to EBC heads a bit eastward from Namche. As you leave Namche, you will encounter a semi-arid and barren landscape headed towards Tengboche. Tengboche is named after the largest monastery in Solukhumbu district. Further up ahead, you will traverse through a flat valley cut by Dudhkoshi river that is bordered by towering peaks on all sides. You will followingly trekking through villages like: Dingboche, Pheriche, Dughla, Gorak Shep to finally reach Everest Base Camp. The return journey from EBC will retrace the same pathway as your ascents. The best part about the return journey is the popular hike to Kalapathar peak. Kalapthar is the highest point of Everest Base Camp Trek and is the best vantage point to gaze at the Everest Panorama.

Alternatively, you can opt for Everest Base Camp trek with Helicopter Return. This trip includes walking all the way up to the base camp and taking the return journey back to Lukla on a chopper. The cost of Everest Heli Return Trek costs $500 per pax and the journey takes about 20 minutes before you land in Lukla.

Additionally, you can lengthen this trekking journey by adding Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek. This addition to your Everest Base Camp journey will lengthen the itinerary by 3 additional days. Cho La Pass is a popular high pass of Everest region that scales 5420 meters. Also, Gokyo Valley consists of 6 different pristine lakes that you shouldn't miss out on.

Everest Base Camp Trek Distance

The roundtrip distance of Everest Base Camp trek is 128 kilometers which starts and ends at Lukla. Aside from this, the aerial distance from Kathmandu to Lukla is about 135 kilometers. You will take a flight to get to Lukla and back to Kathmandu. The flight duration is 30 minutes one way. The standard Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary  is 12 days. Within this timeframe, you will walk for an average distance of about 5-6 hour each day.

Kathmandu - Lukla - Kathmandu flight

The flight to Lukla operates from Manthali, Ramechhap instead of Kathmandu during April, May, October and November. This is due to the extreme air traffic in Kathmandu causing regular delays of the flights. Manthali village is located at a distance 130 kilometers from Kathmandu taking about 3-4 hours to reach. During these period of time, you will have to take an early morning drive (3-4 am) to reach Manthali on time to catch your flight to Lukla. Alternatively, if you want to skip the morning hustle to reach Ramecchap to catch your flight, you can drive there a night before and stay there in a hotel. Next morning, if the weather permits, you will fly to Lukla from Manthali airport in Ramechhap.

Great time on my walk to Everest Base Camp Trek

I had a great time on my walk to Everest Base Camp Trek from Himalaya Trip Team.

I have many positive comments and the main ones are:

– You were very efficient and helpful before I arrived, answering all my questions promptly and effectively so I knew what to expect when I arrived.

– I was met at the airport as planned, had a good briefing from you at the hotel and the hotel was comfortable.

– Everything happened as planned and it was a good timetable enabling me to to walk at my own pace and to properly acclimatise to altitude on the way up.

– My guide, Om Gurung, was excellent and very attentive. He obtained single accommodation for me every night and always checked that I had everything I needed before he looked after himself. When I was unwell on the way down he carefully monitored me, gave me throat tablets and did everything he could to ensure I was comfortable.

– My porter, Bikas, also did a very good job and was always helpful and pleasant.

– The standard of the lodges was good. The only comment is that often the washing facilities were sometimes very limited and at some lodges only consisted of a tap low down beside the toilet! This is not a comment about your company as I think it applies whichever company one uses. It is just difficult to understand why the washing facilities are often so limited and in short supply when all other features of the lodges are very comfortable!

– The price of the trek was competitive compared to some companies but the standard of care was equally good.

Incredible Everest Base Camp Trek

I booked a private trek to Everest Base Camp so it was just myself and my guide / porter trekking together for 12 days. As a solo traveller I always invest a lot of time in to researching the company I book with, it was important to me to do this with a Nepalese tour company and the previous reviews were so encouraging and positive I decided to contact Himalaya Trip to see what they had to offer.

Harka responded almost immediately despite the time difference and sent me detailed information on the Everest Base Camp trek. He answered all my questions and always replied quickly which continued to give me confidence. They were also very competitively priced compared to other local companies and along with the great reviews I had a good feeling that Harka and his team would be the ones to get me to EBC.

Harka met me at the airport, took me to my hotel and helped get me any last minute bits I needed for the trek in Kathmandu. He made everything very easy and I felt safe and reassured the whole time which is important to me as a solo female traveller.

My guide / porter was called Dil and he was the man I was spending 12 days with trekking to EBC. Dil was fantastic, he looked out for me every step of the way, regularly checking in to ensure I was ok and did everything to make my experience on the trek as comfortable and as safe as possible. Dil was so knowledgable about the area and the mountains he would point out everything along the way. Despite him speaking broken English we could quite easily chat and communicate without any problems.

The trek was an incredible experience and one of the toughest yet most amazing things I’ve ever done and part of that was down to the efficiency and professionalism of Harka and his team. I didn’t have to worry or think about a thing, just getting to EBC.

Everest Base Camp Trek – 12 Days

Was referred to Harka by a friend who had done the Everest Base Camp Trek a few months before, and he was very easy to contact and quick to respond. We were a bit uneasy about booking with someone from the other side of the world, but Harka proved himself to be honest, professional, and reputable while organising our trip for us. Once we were in Kathmandu, he was easy to meet up with and was quick to help us out with anything we needed. Our guide, Mr. Dil, who met us in Lukla, was what really made our trip as amazing as it was. He was extremely knowledgable on the mountains and mountain passes, as well as getting us into tea houses and our flight home. He was very professional, friendly, and easy to work with, even though his English was a bit broken. Overall, it was an incredible trip, and I wouldn't hesitate to book with Harka again. If you do the EBC, ask for Dil, he's the man.
