    The first factor is the hiking route. The hiking routes from Lukla to the Everest Base Camp are moderate. You'll be walking on uphill and downhill terrains, which are tough, but one can embark on them without any problem.

    Secondly, the altitude. In the Everest Base Camp Trek, the highest elevation you'll reach is 5545m. We understand that the number looks intimidating; we've got you. Altitude sickness is a severe problem in the upper region; however, this can be avoided with proper acclimatization and the help of a guide.

Moreover, our guides from Nepal Hiking Team are experienced and skilled in their line of work. With years of experience, they've learned how to hike easily, information about altitude sickness, and many more. On the journey, they'll carry all the necessary medicines and guide you throughout the hike. Hence, we assure you that you are in good hands.

    Now, how can you prepare for the trek? Here is some advice that you can use to make yourself fit for the trek,

    • Include cardio exercises.
    • Go to the gym for strength training.
    • Include those exercises that target the thighs, calves, and arm muscles.
    • Drink water regularly

    If you prepare well and remember these things, you'll surely be ready for the trek.

    Which is the best time to trek to Everest Base Camp?

    The Everest Base Camp Trek is accessible all year round. Keeping this in mind, there are, however, some exceptions. We want your EBC trek to be the best one. Hence we recommend some of the best times for the trek.

    The first is the spring season beginning from March to May. Spring is the best time, as you can expect perfect weather conditions. Next is the autumn season, which starts from mid-September to November. During this season, the weather conditions are moderate, i.e., neither too hot nor too cold, perfect for hiking.

    Trekkers avoid the monsoon and the winter seasons due to heavy rainfall and snowfall. Trek during these seasons is possible, but most teahouses will be closed, and the weather conditions will not be favorable for hikes.

    In summary, we recommend those best times, but we also want to let you know it is entirely your choice.

    Route Overview

    Your trip to the Everest region begins upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Our staff at the airport will welcome you and transport you to your designated hotel. On the next day, a sightseeing tour will be organized where you'll get to explore the different UNESCO sites in Kathmandu. 

    We will start our journey for the EBC trek with an exciting flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Upon arriving at Lukla, you'll begin your hike to Phakding through the dense forests. On the way to Namche, you'll cross suspension bridges and pass several villages like Benkar and Monjo Jorsale.

    From Namche Bazaar, you'll hike upto Everest View Hotel to witness the panoramic views of Thamserku, Changtse, Khumbutse, Nuptse, and Lhotse. Then, we'll ascend towards Tengboche, where you can visit the Tengboche monastery. We can spend time with the monks and pray inside the spiritual center. 

    We then continue our hike to Dingboche and also climb to Nagerjun Hill. You can enjoy the spectacular views of the snow-capped mountains and also a close-up view of Mt Amadablam, a beautiful mountain from the hill.

    All along the route, you'll see small settlements, Himalayan snow-cocks, and also yaks.

    Continuing these paths, we'll reach Lobuche and ascend to the ultimate destination, Everest Base Camp. After exploring the EBC, we'll descend to Gorakshep overnight. In the morning, we'll hike up to Kala Patthar to catch the bright sunrise and the closest view of Mount Everest and Khumbu Glacier.

    Afterward, we descend back to Lukla via Pheriche, mainly taking the same path and reaching kathmandu via flight.

    Alternative Treks You Can Consider!

    So, we discussed the routes, best time, and difficulty level, and now let's talk about some alternative trekking packages that you can consider. These packages are of many kinds, based on time, age, and transportation facilities.

    The Everest Base Camp is undoubtedly amazing, but you still have the choice to choose other packages for the trek. We've listed some of your best options below; check them out!

    First on the list is the Everest Base Camp Short Trek. It follows the same route as the standard Everest Base Camp Trek. The only exception is that there is no sightseeing tour or leisure day in Kathmandu.

    Second of all, there is the Everest Base Camp Heli Shuttle trek. Like the EBC trek, you'll trace the same route until the Everest Base Camp. While returning back to Lukla, instead of hiking, you'll take a helicopter from Gorakshep to Lukla. If you have limited time, this package will suit you.

    Likewise, we also have the Everest Base Camp Heli Trek, where you'll be hiking to Everest Base Camp and then take a helicopter ride back to Kathmandu directly.

    Now, for those who are aged, but don't want your age to limit your adventure spirit to hike to the Everest region, then you can check out the

    Everest Base Camp for Seniors. Here the difference would be in short hiking days, two acclimatization days, and a leisure day in Kathmandu.

    Last but not least, we've something for those with limited time who want to get the most out of the trek.

    We've got the Everest Panorama Trek which can be completed in 10 days, where you'll start your hike from Lukla to Namche Bazaar and then back to Lukla.

    In a nutshell, there are various packages, and you can choose whichever you want based on your preferences. Nevertheless, we are here to guide you on every step. As a team, we will discuss, prepare and arrange a fantastic trek for you.

      • The best tour company in the world

        I would first like to say Nepal Hiking Team is absolutely amazing. Ganga is the best. He answered every tedious question I had and accommodated any request I made regardless of how big or small it was. He was prompt on his responses and was very knowledgeable. I got sick one of the days on our trek and he went above and beyond to facilitate a request I made that had never been done before. Not only did he organize our base camp trek, but he organized our Kathmandu tour with an amazing guide name Kumar who was so knowledgeable and so informative.

        We could feel his passion for all of the knowledge he taught us. Ganga also arranged a 5 star tour to Chitwan that was better than anything we could have ever imagined. Ganga went above and beyond and met our expectations and surpassed everything we could have expected. In addition to our amazing adventure in Nepal, I would highly recommend our guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Surya our guide while hiking to Everest Base Camp was AMAZING. He was so patient, kind, and helpful throughout the trek. I would not have made it to the top without his assistance and encouragement.

        I am a slow hiker and he was so patient with me and helped me in everyway. If you are going to be climbing please request Surya you will not be disappointed. I cannot express how much Surya made our trek and when I go back to Nepal, I will be requesting him again. Our porter we used was named Kadar and he was also incredible. You cannot go wrong with using Nepal Hiking Team.

        I 100% would recommend them for anyone wanting to go to Nepal. They can accommodate any budget and will go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your experience. I have traveled all over the world and used various tour agencies and this is by far the best agency I have ever used.

      • EBC-Trecking 16 days - unforgettable with Paban und Eka

        I usually write reviews very rarely. But this time, I do. If I could give stars, I would give 10 stars. We, were two, have done with Nepal Hiking Team the EBC trekking 16 days, and I must say it was great. From the first contact with Ganga everything was perfect. It was the trip of a lifetime. We had Paban as a guide and Eka as a porter.

        They were both great and motivated us when we were a bit down. Paban is knowledgeable, understanding and caring. And he will gladly do whatever he can to make your trip better, and he loves to play card games too! When Paban realized I had a very good camera, he took it and was still our travel photographer. He took the best photos you could imagine.

        The nature, the people, it was great. This trip exceeded all expectations and was incredible from beginning to end. I would highly recommend the company and the trek to anyone. When you look at all the inclusions, the quality of the staff and the guest houses, I don't think any other hiking/travel company can match Nepal Hiking Team. Big thanks again to Paban and Eka, you guys are the best. I will be back and wish to have you as my company.

        There was even a cake for my birthday at EBC.

      • Amazing Trekking in the Himalayas

        Five stars from start to finish. We did the Everest Base Camp trek with Nepal Hiking Team. Ganga, the owner is super responsive and patient—he answered our many questions quickly and professionally. Paban, our guide was excellent—very experienced, knowledgeable, and fun. He kept us informed and safe throughout the trek—ask for him if you’re planning a trekking trip with Nepal Hiking Team. You will not be disappointed. Our porter, Deepak is a rock star. He carried our heavy bags day in and day out and always had a smile on his face. Was always available to help and answer any questions if needed. He’s studying to be an assistant guide—something he would do very well. We hope he transitions to the role soon and then to an full fledged guide.

        Planning a trek in a unfamiliar place can be intimidating, but if you decide to go with Nepal Hiking Team, they will take all the potential stress out of the experience and make it the experience of a life time. Read this review on tripadvisor.

      • Trip of lifetime 

        My father and I booked the Annapurna base camp trek with Nepal Hiking Team and we cannot commend them enough for everything they did for us. From landing in Kathmandu to leaving Nepal, NHT accommodated our every need going above and beyond to ensure we had the most amazing time.

        Every element of the trip was excellently organised, many thanks to Ganga, who was also incredibly responsive to any queries we had throughout. As our two team members on the trek, Gokul our guide and Sudeep our porter did an outstanding job and we cannot thank them enough for the effort they put into our tour, without them our trip most certainly would not have been the same.

        Not only was Gokul rich in knowledge about Nepal, he was also a brilliant leader and we enjoyed his company enormously. Sudeep did an outstanding job carrying our bags and was so much fun to be around. However, we would recommend for any future trekkers that you take the absolute minimum with you. Above all we cannot fault our trek or NHT and would highly recommend them for anyone looking to go walking in the Himalayas!!

      • EBC trip of a lifetime

        This trip was amazing, from the planning stage to the trip itself! Ganga was very responsive to my questions leading up to the trip and helped me prepare properly. Bihm was our guide and from the moment I landed had everything well in hand. He and our porter Baji took great care every step of the way and made this a trip of a lifetime!

        The weather in early September is still a bit iffy but the trade-off is quiet trails all to yourself. Nepal Hiking Team made this a great experience, I can’t wait to return for a different trek with them."

      • Everest BC in 2022

        After coming across many excellent reviews about Nepal Hiking Team, I decided on a whip pretty much to just go ahead with this one. But, in all fairness, I was pretty surprised and warmly pleased with the assistance of Ganga, especially the people who were all very friendly and helped me a lot on my trek.

        I loved the scenery of the trek and the experience of going to Nepal, being among the local people, and seeing all the wonderful surroundings; it was very memorable. NHT is a great trekking agency, and I approve of it.

        I will surely be taking their help if I ever decide to have another go at trekking in the future! Big thanks to Bhim Guide and Ganga - Owner of this outfit.

      • Everest Base Camp - Amazing Guide Arun

        Nepal Hiking Team proved to be effective from the moment of my arrival at the airport. The guide for my trek, Arun, was very good and he was jovial to be around. So, I enjoyed myself a lot. The package that I selected for the Everest Base Camp Trek was very reasonably priced and I did not have any sort of unnecessary hassle along the trek as well, everything just went by super smoothly and quite fast too!! I love travelling, and have taken to many travel agencies, and I must say, Nepal Hiking Team comes under one of those who provide good services to the people who take its help. Definitely a five-star rating!

        Choose Nepal Hiking Team if any of you are planning for the trek in Nepal, I definitely recommend!

      • A Very Reliant Agency!

        I had always wanted to do the Everest Trek, and when I finally had the opportunity, I was delighted with enthusiasm! I think I am also fortunate to have been in the company of Nepal Hiking Team because they gave me no reason whatsoever to companion about anything at all.

        Every service I received was top-notch, and I was always provided the best available services, from the food and guesthouses to the porter and guiding services.

        My guide was Paban, and he was very proficient at his work. He made sure that I was comfortable and had everything I needed.

        The trip was terrific, and I am so glad I was with NHT! Their prompt responses, their kind gestures, and the best organization of the trip had me convinced that I was with the professionals from the very beginning.

        My recommendation goes to Nepal Hiking Team for being one of Nepal's most reliant tour agencies!

      • Amazing trek from start to finish!

        When searching for a trekking company I wanted to go with a local group. All the reviews for Nepal Hiking Team were excellent so I choose them. From start to finish they had their act together. Initial correspondence and any email questions were answered by Ganga, the man in charge, by the next day. They kept me up to date with everything I needed as far as entry into Nepal. Picked me up from the airport and got me to my hotel without an issue. I joined a couple from Canada for the trek. Our guide Prakash never left our side from breakfast to dinner.

        He expedited the flight to and from Lukla which would have been a hectic process without him. Since all of us were in our 50s he established early that we would be in no rush. Whether we got to our next location at 2pm or 4pm didn’t matter. I would rather be outside enjoying the trek than in early playing cards. I felt safe and looked after with him. This trek is tough. It’s much steeper than I anticipated and the altitude change from place to place does not reflect the ascents and descents which on some days doubles the heights you actually do.

        They ascents into Tengbouche and at Dugla pass are particularly tough but at a slow steady pace they are doable by any who are reasonably fit. Once at the guest house the service didn’t end there. Prakash took care of all our needs. Making sure we had enough to eat and enough water. He wouldn’t leave our side until we turned in for the night which was often quite early. His personality was very soothing.

        We could not have accomplished what we did without him or our 2 porters. While English was not their strength, they would carry our gear ahead of us to the next location and often double back to see if we needed help and were more than happy to help with our day packs. They also accompanied us on some of the acclimation hikes in case some or one of us wanted to climb higher, splitting us up. After the trek everything was taken care of.

        I needed a PCR COVID test for a tour in Abu Dahbi the day after I left Kathmandu and Ganga arranged for a nurse to administer it to me in the hotel. Seamless. It’s a long review but I really can’t say enough about these guys, especially for the price. For all the service we got it was amazingly reasonable. Would definitely use this company on any return trip to Nepal and highly recommend!

      • 16-day Everest Base Camp Trek with NHT

        Doing the Everest Base Camp Trek with my father was a great vacation opportunity for my family. My father and I decided to do it with Nepal Hiking Team, an agency recommended to us by a friend. It was spoken very highly of, and thus going in, we already had an idea about what we should be expecting. But NHT exceeded all of our anticipations!

        The people we met and accompanied by were pleasant and extremely friendly and helpful, the services that we got were also excellent and enjoyable!

        We were provided complimentary sleeping bags, duffle bags, and Down jackets as well, and the guesthouses that we stayed at were nice, clean, and comfortable.

        The meals were fulfilling, and we were provided generous portions, thanks to our guide Narayan. We did not have to worry about anything at all. We just laid back and enjoyed the mountains while the rest was taken care of in the most expert manner by the agency.

        We had the best time in Nepal with NHT, and should we ever go back for another adventure, and we know we will most definitely be choosing Nepal Hiking Team!
