    Your Journey to the Everest Base Camp

    Your trek to the Everest Base Camp in Nepal begins upon your flight landing at Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu(KTM), from where you’ll be received by the Nepal Hiking Team (NHT) and guided to one of the best 3-star hotels within walking distance of the capital hub.

    After spending two nights in the vibrant city, your flight to Lukla takes place from KTM during summer and winter and from Ramechhap (Manthali Airport is 132 km away from KTM through a private jeep) during spring and autumn. Note that your baggage weight can extend up to 15 kg for the Lukla flight. Your actual “hiking” journey to the world of the Himalayas begins here at Lukla.

    The Everest trekking route intertwines along the serene Dudh Koshi River while walking through the Sagarmatha National Park. After a night at Phakding, walk the next day to Namche Bazaar to find more fellow EBC trekkers. Here, you acclimatize a little by strolling around to view ancient stupas, museums, monasteries, Mani stones, and memorial milestones. Buy equipment gear or a data plan here to ensure an internet connection in the Everest Himalayas.

    Continue walking through the trails to visit a monastery at Tengboche Village. Furthermore, take time to adore the gorgeous views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Thamserku. Upon arriving at Dingboche, appreciate the goodness of the majestic Ama Dablam, and then head towards Nangkartshang Peak.

    Keep following the EBC trek route, and you’ll reach Gorak Shep after twists and turns along Khumbu Glacier, and to the epic Everest Base Camp finally. Cheers on your victory! Watch how the Khumbu Icefall mesmerizes you as it unfolds the matchless beauty of the region. With a content heart, descend to Gorak Shep for the overnight stay.

    On the following day, hike to Kala Patthar to watch the surreal view of the sun rising over the Everest Himalayas in the early morning. Upon descending to Pheriche, the aim is to conclude the EBC trek by arriving at Lukla, after crossing Tengboche and Namche.

    Contact the Nepal Hiking Team for an experienced Everest guide who will customize your EBC trek as per your style and preferences.

      Best Time to Trek Everest Base Camp

      Nepal Hiking Team highly recommends Autumn (Sep-Nov) and Spring (Mar-May) as the most favorable time to trek the Everest Base Camp. 

      Autumn is the best option for clear skies and festive vibes. Choose spring for the refreshing aura of blooming flowers and mild temperature. Monsoon and winter offer crowd-free and serene atmospheres for peaceful trekking, and the weather becomes quite challenging during the seasons, with risks of heavy rainfall and avalanches. Know more about the best time to trek in Nepal.

      Tips for Everest Base Camp Trek

      • Prepare yourself physically and mentally, as consulted by our trekking leaders, 2-3 months before venturing for the trek.
      • Carry protein bars and dried fruits for snacking up in the mountains. Hot lemon, green tea, lemon tea, or garlic soups are great options for hydration at higher elevations. 
      • Be responsible for your travel. Avoid bottled water and other plastics for ecological safety and to maintain the beauty of the place.
      • Not necessarily to mention, but remember to take pictures via camera with a beautiful background of the Everest region. 
      • Never let your body face dehydration and digestive discomfort; avoid junk foods, alcohol and dairy products at all costs.
      • Follow the expert guidance and take enough time for acclimatization. If you face symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness or AMS, contact your guide ASAP.
      • Take personal responsibility for your valuables; store them in your backpack or rucksack.
      • Explore the Nepali culture and traditions through our guides and local people.
      • For internet access, buy the Everest Link Card for USD 2 - 4, cheaper than Airlink. Make sure to buy a sim card too from Nepal Telecom or Ncell.
      • For charging your device, you have options of two and three-pin plug points at USD 1-4 per hour. The electrical standards of Nepal are 230Vvoltage and 50 Hz frequency.
      • Device charging facilities are in high demand during peak seasons. So, do carry power banks as an alternative, and to save money in charging. 
      • Carry cash of NPR 18000-20000 (Roughly USD 180-200) per person for extra expenses like shower, device charging, and Wi-Fi during the EBC trip. Visit one of the money exchange centers or use ATM stations available 24/7 in KTM. 
      • Feel free to appreciate your guides with tips, for their support – a common practice in Nepal.
      • Feel free to extend your travel plan with one of our tour packages leading to Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan, or Chitwan.
