Everest Base Camp Trek takes us to the playground of sherpas, also known as Himalayan heroes, who have the capability to work and endure in some of the world’s roughest terrains and climates. Namche Bazar is the gateway to Sagarmatha and a settlement for the sherpas involved in the tourism industry. You can get access to ATMs, hotels, teahouses, and wifi. Furthermore, we can also visit the region’s largest monastery, Tengboche Monastery, the highest monastery in the Khumbu region of Nepal, and come close to four of the world’s six tallest peaks: Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Cho-Oyu. We begin our hike to the Everest base camp with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla.
To reach EBC, expedition members or trekkers usually fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2,806m) and pass through Namche Bazaar. Everest Base Camp is a place for mountaineers to acclimatize to the altitude and the last destination for trekkers. There are some camps along different Everest summit trails for the settlement of climbers. Mostly in spring, we can observe the preparation of the expedition team.
As per your flight schedule at TIA (Tribhuvan International Airport), our representative will receive you at the exit terminal. Our representative will help you load baggage onto our private vehicle and transfer you to the hotel. Today, there will be leisure time, and later in the evening, our office will organize an authentic Nepali dinner along with a live folk dance to welcome you. Overnight in Kathmandu.
In the early morning, we will have breakfast and head to the airport to catch a flight to Lukla. The flight offers a great panoramic view of the Eastern Himalayan ranges. Enjoy the view before landing at Lukla airport. The rest of the team will meet at the airport and start the trek to Phakding. The Himalayas will welcome you with prayer flags, a monastery, and stone carved with mani (Buddhist Mantra) along the trail. Our first night in the Himalayas will be in Phakding, a small valley mostly with tea houses.
We continue our trek along the trail to Monjo, a small town known as the gateway to Sagarmatha National Park. We will take our permit to enter the national park. From this point on, the entire trek will take place inside Sagarmatha National Park, home to a variety of rare and endangered plant and animal species as well as evergreen forests of blue pine, deodar, and rhododendron. We cross a suspension bridge at the junction of the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers. We hike uphill for about two hours before reaching Namche Bazaar, our stop for the night.
A day for acclimatization is needed as we ascend to the higher elevations. There is a lot to see and things to do in Namche. We will hike up to the hill of Syangboche, where we will have the first unobstructed view of Everest and other neighboring peaks: the mighty Thamserku, Kongde RI, and Ama Dalama. We have an alternative option to visit the green valley of Khumjung or directly head to Hotel Everest View. We head back to Namche and spend our evening there. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.
Today our destination lies where the two rivers converge at the center of the Khumbu: Tengboche. We will hike on a straight trail leaving Namche. We will see a person with a donation box who constructed the path from Namche to Kyangjuma by collecting donations from tourists. This trail is one of the most developed trails in the region. From Kyangjuma, we will descend to the bank of the river to cross a bridge, from where we will climb through the rhododendron forest before reaching Tengboche.
Enjoy your breakfast at Tengboche and begin the hike by descending towards the tiny village of Deboche by crossing a suspension bridge over the Imja Khola before arriving at Pangboche. From here, we can enjoy the tremendous views of Ama Dablam. After a few moments of rest with some snacks, we resume our trek, climbing along a trail decorated with prayer flags and stones carved by Mani. The path past the village of Orsho will arrive at the small Sherpa village known as Dingboche, the summer valley of the region. Overnight in the tea house at Dingboche.
Today we acclimatize as we have reached 4000m. As for today, we explore Dingboche by taking a short hike to Nagarjuna Hill, which is just south of Dingboche. From the top of the hill, we can get stunning views of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Lobuche, and Taboche. We return to Dingboche to explore its many guesthouses, restaurants, bakeries, and shops. Overnight at Dingboche
We continue our hike, taking you through pastures and lonely huts of yak herders. As we head towards the tiny settlement of Lobuche, the local terrain changes to be replaced with scattered shrubs and rocky, snow-dusted grasslands. Today’s trek ends at Lobuche, a small village situated in the shadow of the mountain which shares its name. Overnight in Lobuche.
Today is the day that this whole journey is about to reach Everest Base Camp. We head towards Gorak Shep, once the site of the original Everest Base Camp and our last stop. We will take a break before pressing on to Everest Base Camp through the Khumbu glacier moraine. As we get closer to the base camp, we’ll see the Khumbu Ice Fall. Spend time enjoying the atmosphere and taking photos for memories before returning to Gorak Shep.
Our destination in the morning for today is Kala Patthar. Kala Patthar is the nearest viewpoint to Everest and the highest elevation of our trek. We’ll depart Gorakshep in the early morning to ascend to this famous viewpoint in time for sunrise, climbing a series of challenging switchbacks. After spending some time enjoying the view and clicking pictures, we will return to Gorak Shep for lunch. We will go back by the same route to Lobuche and Pheriche. Pheriche is a small farming community and a popular stop for trekkers.
We begin our trek back to Namche Bazaar, taking the trail along Imja Khola and passing many familiar sights such as Pangboche and Tengboche. We will have lunch in the little town of Phungi Thanga or Kyangjuma before resuming the descent through dense woodlands. After lunch, it will take about two to three hours to reach Namche, where we will stay for the night.
Today is our last day of walking. We will head back to Lukla, crossing some suspension bridges laden with prayer flags and passing through the village of Cheung. Enjoy your evening with the guide and other team members, sharing the experience and giving your review of the trek.
Today we take our flight back to Kathmandu after having breakfast. Upon arrival, we head towards our hotel, where you will have leisure time to explore Kathmandu and its local market. Overnight in Kathmandu
In the morning, we will go to Boudhanath Stupa. We will visit some monasteries and temples around Boudhanath. We will have our lunch at a typical Tibetan restaurant. After lunch, we will be going to another Buddhist sanctuary, Swayambhunath. Swayambhu is famous for its monkey temple and stupa at the top of the hill. Lastly, we visit Basantpur Durbar Square. Basantapur was once a popular place for hippies. We will visit the museum and head back to the hotel. Spend the rest of your time around the hotel and enjoy your last day in Nepal.
Enjoy your last moments in Nepal. Our office representative will transfer you to the airport per the flight schedule.
We hope that you had a lifetime experience.
