Everest Base Camp Trek

The soaring Himalayas are the primary topic of interest for most travelers visiting Nepal. The highest of them all, Mount Everest, sits splendidly at 8,848 meters, 29,029 ft above sea level. By taking part in the Everest base camp trek, you will not just see the statuesque appeal of Everest, but experience it. During the 16 days of travel, which commences from Kathmandu, you will be able to explore Nepali culture, customs, cuisine and hospitality.

Away from the uniformed streets of the cosmopolitan capital, you will explore the highlands and the rich culture of the people residing there. Hiking through the Himalayan pine and cedar forests, you are invited to the charming frenzy of a village, Namche Bazaar. Surrounded by frosty pinnacles of the mountains, the dichotomy lies in the warmth of the village dwellers. Little shops, lodges and internet cafés are clustered together that form a tourist hub. Tengboche Monastery, the spiritual center of the Khumbu, awaits visitors wanting to experience the intricate artwork, figurines and scriptures. It captures the archaic enigma, created in 1916 that achieved the status of having “outstanding universal value”.

Descending through yak pastures, hiking through beautiful rhododendron forests, and gazing upon the spectacular splendor views of the mountains, you will make way to the Everest Base Camp scale its heights, until 1953, when Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay conquered the summit. Years later, from customary hikers to President Jimmy Carter, visitors marvel over these views. The Everest base camp trek is one of the most popular trekking routes and is visited by thousands of trekkers every year.

The Everest Base Camp Trek allows sufficient time for local sightseeing, where you can enjoy the courteous and amiable local villagers. The Nepali take pride in their hospitality, offered to anyone who visits. While you need to be physically fit to trek, you can hike at your own pace. You may take adequate time for altitude acclimatization, respectful not only of your need to hike comfortably and safely, but also to your desire to take the time to truly appreciate your extraordinary journey.

Our trained guides and porters ensure that your Everest Base Camp Trek is not just remarkable but, secure, as well. Medical care is available, if required. Your guides are well-trained and are able to deal with emergency situations. You will be provided with information about the local traditions, surroundings and guidance, on the trail ahead.

Join the Nepal Hiking Team on the Everest Base Camp Trek to live your valiant spirit and experience the supremacy of the mighty Himalayas, right before your eyes.

Day 06: Trek to Tengboche (3860m/12660ft)  Duration: 5 hours
The uniform and easy trail leads us towards the view of Mount Everest, descending deep into the Dudh Koshi Valley at Pungki Thanka and from this point, it ascends the right flank of the Dudh Koshi valley to Tengboche Monastery (3860m). It is the spiritual center of the Khumbu. The climb is lengthy, but is more than adequately compensated by gorgeous views of Mount Amadablam and on a clear day, views of Mt. Everest and its surrounding peaks. Overnight at guesthouse, inclusive of full board meals.

Day 07: Trek to Dingboche (4410m/14464ft) Duration: 5 hours
Descend through a beautiful forest, cross the Imja Khola and trek through the village of Pangboche (3900m); perhaps today is the most interesting trekking because you will not lose altitude like on other days and you will enjoy views of Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Lhotse & other peaks; the route continues through pastures to Dingboche, known as the 'summer valley'.
Overnight at guesthouse, inclusive of full board meals.

Day 08: Dingboche to Nagerjun (5100m/16728ft) and return Duration: 6 hours
This would be your second acclimatization day that requires about 6 hours of trekking to an altitude of 5100m. After breakfast, you ascend Nagerjun (5100m), a hill located on the flanks of the Chhukung valley directly above Dingboche. The main aim is to climb high and sleep low. The foot path becomes steep at times, resulting in a physically strenuous day.  Ascending the hill could take up to 5 hours at altitude. From this altitude there are good views of Lobuche East (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m) and Ama Dablam (6856m). On a clear day, you could even see Makalu, the world’s fifth highest mountain, including great views of the Pheriche Valley.  After a short rest, you start the descent back to Dingboche and the walk at altitude takes about 2 hours.  After lunch, take a well deserved rest, as afternoon temperatures could drop rapidly as the sun sets over the mountain tops. You will also spend a second night in Dingboche. Overnight at guesthouse, inclusive of full board meals.

Day 09: Trek to Lobuche (4910m/16105ft) Duration: 5 hours
Trek along a broad valley floor to Dughla, passing the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche (4240 m). This trek is staffed by western volunteer doctors and supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association, which offers treatment and consultation to trekkers. Continue up the valley, gaining altitude. We come out of the valley to descend to the yak pastures of Lobuche (4910m). Overnight at guesthouse, inclusive of full board meals.

Day 10: Trek to Everest Base Camp (5364m/17594ft) & back to Gorekshep (5181m/16994ft) Duration: 8 hours
After a short climb through meadows, look down at the Khumbu glacier. Straight ahead is Kalapattar - the best vantage point to view the entire south face of Mt. Everest and the surrounding peaks.
After a couple of hours we will get to Gorekshep, and continue our journey to the Everest base camp. There is not much elevation gain, but there are a lot of ups and downs and, combined with altitude, this can be an exhausting trek - but the journey is worth it. After approximately 3 hrs of hiking, you will arrive at the base camp and enjoy a magnificent view of the Khumbu glacier and icefall, where the Everest expeditions begin. Overnight at guesthouse, inclusive of full board meals.

Day 11: Hiking to Kalapattar (5545m/18188ft) - Gorekshep - Pheriche (4210m/13809ft) Duration : 7 hours

My wife and I and five friends recently did a trek to Annapurna Base camp and back with the Nepal Hiking Team. The trek was fantastic and the Team fabulous. I confidently recommend to any prospective hikers that they seriously consider using the Nepal Hiking Team. Their performance on our trek was really good; from the first email contact to the final departure from Kathmandu Airport the staff of the company looked after us very well.
Balaram was our main contact and he designed a great trek from our request to "see the Rhododendrons in bloom, and see Annapurna, but not too high an altitude". He told us just exactly when to do the trek (to see the blooms), and which route would be best. His recommendation was a perfect match with our wishes - we saw the beauty of the Rhododendron forests, as well as the spectacular splendor of the Annapurna Mountains.
He put together a support team of an expert guide (Lal Gurung) his assistant and four porters to do the heavy lifting. They all were cheerful, very competent, and helped us through any difficult spots (and there are a few, but nothing we could manage with a little expert help). Gurung gave a lot of information about local customs, fauna and flora, as well as detailed and accurate advice about the nature and condition of the track ahead. He made the trek interesting and enjoyable, and took us there and back safely. And the accommodation was great too, with a shower most days and good meals in clean and presentable tea houses.

There was some room for flexibility in our itineraries too, when we wanted to get to a particular place in a specific time, we were able to talk it through with Gurung and get his sensible advice on how best to achieve our aim - and he got us there too!

Do you get the impression I enjoyed the trek and was in awe of the Nepal Hiking Team's performance? That is exactly what I did feel, and I have no hesitation in recommending them as a company to deliver a memorable personalized trek for you and your family/friends.

Thank you Balaram, Gurung and the Nepal Hiking Team.

My husband and I just completed the 20 day Annapurna Circuit in April and we can't imagine the trip without Nepal Hiking Team. They were professional, fun, encouraging, and knowledgeable...their customer service is incredible and they took care of us during our entire stay in Nepal, even before and after our trek. The entire trek was worth every penny.

The owners - Ganga, Ram, and Hari - are all super professional, flexible, and responsive to any client's needs. They helped us with everything from airport pickup, finding places to stay before our trek, flexibility with changed dates and rides, and more. If we wanted to customize our trip in any way - all we had to do was ask.

Our guide, Prakash, was one of the nicest people we'd ever met. He made our trek more enjoyable with his sense of humour and easygoing, patient personality. He was always checking in on us yet giving us our own space to enjoy the trek, and always attentive to any question or need we had. The entire team, including our helper Raj, not only made the trek possible for us, but they made it that much better with their company. They paid attention to small details and from what I observed all along the way, their service went above and beyond what other tour guides or companies provided.

The food choices along the trail were better than I expected : more options that I thought would be available at that altitude! The lodging was always great, and we were always comfortable. Every night on our trek, they provide sliced apples and oranges. After long days of trekking and with limited fruit on the trail, this small detail became so special to us - not to mention the fact that our guide carried enough fruit in his pack to make this possible during the entire trek! You get to borrow good quality down sleeping bags, duffel bags, and down jackets from the company. A huge bonus for those not wanting to purchase or pack these, like us. The nights in Kathmandu before and after the trek, the night in Pokhara, and the day tour in Kathmandu are all wonderful and so worth it. These were huge additions to our experience as well.

Finally, these guys are just so respectable. They've worked their way from being helpers themselves, to assistant guides, to guides, to owning their own company. I have huge respect for them because
they have so much experience, and they take care of their employees. Everyone who worked for them seemed happy to be working for them, which says a lot about a way a trekking company is run.
