    Route Outline

    As you arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport, a representative from our company will greet you and then transfer you to the hotel in Kathmandu. After a sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, the real journey to the Everest Base Camp begins with a thrilling flight to Lukla.

    Upon landing at Lukla airport, you'll walk for approx 3 hours to Phakding for an overnight stay. The route then follows the Dudh Koshi River to reach Namche Bazar. Taking a day to let your body acclimate to high altitude, you will hike to Tengboche, known for its historic monastery. Now, ascending further into the mountains, you'll pass through small villages like Dingboche and Lobuche before marching towards the Everest Base Camp. In Dingboche, you'll stay an extra night for acclimatization and a hike to Nagerjun Hill.

    The next stop is the base camp of Mount Everest. After reaching the Everest Base Camp, you'll later make your way back to Gorekshep to stay there for the night. Subsequently, you'll hike to Kala Pathar for a close-up view of Mt Everest. On your way back, you'll retrace your steps to Namche Bazar via Pheriche and then to Lukla. Taking the beauty once more, you'll fly back to Kathmandu with a heart full of memories and a camera full of pictures.

    Experience the ultimate adventure as you take on the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek.

    Best Time

    Did the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek catch your attention?  And are you wondering when the best time to embark on this journey is? The answer is simple: Spring (March-May) and Autumn (September-November).

    The two seasons mark the ideal time for trekking in the Everest region. The temperature is mild, and the sky is clear during these times, making it an ideal time to appreciate the panoramic views of the mountains fully. Although both are considered the best times, trekking during these two seasons offers two different experiences. The spring season brings back warmth and life to Nepal. The trails during this time are beautifully covered with the bloom of Rhododendrons. Likewise, the Autumn months make you witness a different color change in Nature.

    Trekking during the months of winter (December to February) and monsoon (June-August) is attainable as well. However, the temperature drops significantly, and the chances of snowfall are high during these months. This can make the trek more challenging and also impact the trail conditions. This can make it difficult to appreciate the beauty of the region and pose safety concerns.

    These two seasons are the least busy seasons for trekking. Henceforth if you want to avoid crowds, you may opt for these seasons.

    Difficulty Level

    After coming this far in the overview, are you now wondering how difficult the journey to Everest  Base Camp is?

    While reaching the foothill of the world’s highest mountain is an adventure of a lifetime, it is not without its challenges. With high altitude, rugged terrain, and sometimes unpredictable weather, this trek is not for the faint of heart. But with proper preparation and a healthy dose of determination, anyone can conquer the difficulties of this incredible trek and reach the base of the world's tallest peak.

    Physically, this trek requires a high level of fitness, with daily hikes that can last for up to 8 hours and cover as much as 12 miles per day. It involves long hours of walking, sometimes on steep and uneven trails, with altitudes ranging from 2,834 meters to 5,364 meters. The thin air at high altitudes can cause altitude sickness, which can be debilitating for some trekkers. Acclimatizing slowly and properly is crucial to reduce the risk of altitude sickness. Keeping your health as our top priority, we have prepared this package with enough acclimatization days.

    So if you're up for an adventure and want to push your limits, Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek is the perfect challenge for you!

    Alternative Treks

    Now, let’s look into the other trekking journeys similar to Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek.

    The first one that we have is the standard 16-Day Everest Base Camp Trek. It follows the same itinerary as the EBC luxury Trek but has different accommodation options. In this package, you’ll stay in a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu and normal tea houses along the way. This standard package is also relatively cheaper than the luxury one.

    The other journey strikingly similar to the EBC Luxury Trek is the 11-Day Luxury Everest Base Camp Heli Trek. With the shortened days, the trek follows a relatively similar itinerary. What differentiates this from the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek is that in this trek package, you will fly over the Himalayas from Kala Pathar directly to Kathmandu city in a helicopter. It will let you enjoy an aerial view of the entire Everest peaks.

    Nevertheless, all our trek packages promise an amazing experience in the Himalayas. And if you want to customize it, we will gladly do so. You have to tell us about your preferences, and we can make it happen for you.
