The Everest Base Camp Trek lets you experience the absolutely wonderful idiosyncratic diversity of people’s lives at the Himalayas, along with an utterly marvelous journey filled with ravishing sights of the cultures and customs of the people who reside there. Along the Everest Base Camp Trek, you would be coming across a World Heritage Site of Sagarmatha National Park, prominent for its sacred Himalaya landscape and its embodiment of gorges and ebullient rivers within its natural parameters. You would also be excursing through magnificent monasteries that dot the terrain and trudging through verdantly beautiful rhododendron trees and the tundra foliages of the region. Reaching the destination of the world’s highest peak is quite an accomplishment! Other settlements and dainty villages that you would be coming across the Everest Base Camp Trek includes Phakding, Pheriche and the Gateway to Everest- Namche Bazaar, which is rich with its array of people, their unique culture and customs and their rituals of daily life at the Himalayas. Namche Bazaar is a popular destination for trekkers in the Khumbu region, the settlement simply bustling with shops and hotels; and a hike to the Everest View Hotel presents you with gorgeous views of the mountains of the region.

Along the Everest Base Camp Trek, you would have the opportunity to visit the Tengboche monastery, its golden spires looming in all of its glory, contrasting majestically to the ivory of the landscape. The Sherpa people call Mount Everest “Chomolungma”, which means “Goddess Mother of the World” and its Nepali noun counterpart is “Sagarmatha”, which translated to “The Head of the Sky”. Climbing this brobdingnagian larger-than-life quiddity is simply exhilarating! After the first and daring ascend of the mountain in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hilary, the trek up to the base camp of the mountain has been accomplished by many.

The Everest Base Camp Trek starts from Kathmandu valley. Taking a wonderful scenic flight to Lukla, you would begin your trek passing along robust environmental quintessence of the Everest region. The serene and tranquil landscapes, encompassed with emerald and jade alpine forests and florescent presence of rhododendron trees in full bloom all along the trekking journey is quite ravishing! You will encounter pious monasteries, various temples, Gumbas and chortens all decorated opulently with colorful prayer flags swaying in the Himalayan wind.

The Everest Base Camp Trek also lets you traverse to the destination of “Kala Patthar”, which in Nepali translates to “Black Rock”. It is a notable landmark located on the southern ridge of the Pumori in the Himalayas and is famous for providing the most spectacular views of Mount Everest and many of its surrounding peaks like Mount Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Mahalangur, Khumbutse and Lingtren among many others. The Everest Base Camp Trek also subsumes the largest glacier of Nepal and the World’s highest glacier, The Khumbu Glacier, in its odyssey of trekking. Our staff and team members for the Everest Base Camp Trek will proceed to provide the very best services and we have your very best interest when we will undertake you through this journey.

We also provide alternatives to a 16-Day Everest Base Camp Trek, with the Everest Chola Pass Trek, which is relatively a more demanding and strenuous trekking option. The Everest Panorama Trek is a more relaxing trip and more comfortable. Everest Base Camp Short Trek is another one that we offer, especially for those who have a limited amount of vacation time here.

Nepal Hiking Team will spare no effort in providing the most exceptional services to help you undergo the Everest Base Camp Trek. With our utmost effort for your satisfaction on this trekking journey, we are bound to make this event unforgettable. So come join us in this amazing adventure!

Khumbila, a sacred peak which has not been climbed yet. We will then gradually walk down to Phakding passing across lush landscape and the striking views of Kusum Kangraru from distance will greet you. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 04: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m/11283ft) Duration: 6 hours

    After breakfast at Phakding, we will move ahead to Jorsale Village and Sagarmatha National Park. During the journey, we can view a stunning backdrop of natural beauty along with the old Mani stone walls carved with prayers. Passing the flexuous trail through the national park, we will cross several suspension bridges and pass through solemn alpine forests of pine and cedar. After the strenuous climb up the elevation, we will reach the capitol of the Everest region mostly inhabited by Sherpa people and which was once a trading rendezvous point for Nepali and Tibetan traders and merchants, Namche Bazaar. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 05: Namche Bazaar- Everest View Hotel- Namche

    On this day we shall have rest and enjoy the day exploring the mélange of the picturesque scenery of Namche Bazaar. One can get accustomed to the elevated environmental conditions while here; and have a little sightseeing excursion, and then to some degree, avoid the feeling of vertigo by adjusting the body to the higher elevations and evade altitude sickness later on in the trip. While we are here, we will take a trip to Syangboche Airport, the airstrip located at the highest altitude on the world at 3700m.
    We shall then continue on to Everest View Hotel where the spectacular view of Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse among others, will be waiting for our eyes to feast upon their radiance. With the memories of stunning views engraved into our minds, we will then walk back to Namche Bazaar after visiting the Everest Photo Gallery and the Sherpa Culture Museum along our excursion. We shall then bring an end to our day by returning to our accommodation at Namche. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 06: Namche to Tengboche (3860m/12660ft) Duration: 5 hours

    On the 6th day, we shall then take an easy trail leading us to the Dudh Koshi Valley at Phungki Thanka, the jaunt hailing with a simply resplendent view of Mt. Everest. We will then proceed to make our way to the right coast of Dudh Koshi Valley to get to Tengboche Monastery located at the stature of 3860m. The monastery is a hamlet where our sense of serenity shall be regained surrounded by the aesthetics of Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest and numerous other beguiles. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 07: Tengboche to Dingboche (4410m/14464ft) Duration: 5 hours

    Wayfaring across the suspension bridge over the Imja Khola on the 7th day, we shall move down to Debouche from Tengboche and then ascend to a place called Pangboche, lying between copious Mani stones. Then, we will climb up to a heavenly little Sherpa settlement called Dingboche, a popular “Summer Valley” encompassing graceful views of the Lhotse, the Ama Dablam and the Island Peak. At the end of the day, we shall check into our guest house for lunch, dinner and breakfast.

  • Day 08: Dingboche - Nagerjun (5100m/16728ft) and return to Dingboche, 6 hours

    At Dingboche, we will have another acclimatization day. Rather than exploring lazily around Dingboche, we can hike to Nagerjun located at the height of 5100m. Nagerjun lying just above Dingboche is set on a hill on the edges of the Chhukung valley. While hiking, we will notice the trail turning steeper making the walk quite strenuous. Walking for approximately 5 hours, we will reach Nagerjun which bestows good panorama of Lobuche East (6119m), Lobuche West (6145m), Kangtega (6685m), Taboche Peak (6367m), Thamserku (6608m), and Ama Dablam (6856m).

    If you are lucky, you can also observe stunning sight of Makalu, the world’s fifth tallest peak on a clear day. The views of Pheriche Valley from here is also splendid. Capturing unforgettable sights, we will walk back to Dingboche. After finishing our lunch, we can just take sunbath and relax. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 09: Dingboche to Lobuche (4910m/16105ft) Duration: 5 hours

    We will make our way to Dhungla from Dingboche on the 9thday, where we shall come across the Trekkers Aid Post, situated at Pheriche (4210m), run by the Western Volunteer Doctors and assisted by The Himalayan Rescue Association, aiding for the treatment of trekkers.
    Coming across to Chupki Lhara after passing the rock-strewn oblique with the sight of magisterial mountains, the peak of which is brimming with colorful prayer flags and Mani stones, we shall walk down to the Khumbu Glacier moraine, keeping with us the patronage of portentous mountains of Khumbutse, Mahalangur Himal, Lingtren and the Pumori. Mt. Nuptse will loom up in our perspective once we cross the glacier pass. We shall then check into our guesthouse at Lobuche for the night. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 10: Lobuche - Everest Base Camp (5364m/17594ft) - Gorekshep (5181m/16994ft) Duration: 8 hours

    This is an anticipated day of the trekking trip and we will begin by starting the walk slow to avoid altitude sickness, the sight of the world’s highest glacier, The Khumbu Glacier accompanying us to our right.

    Walking for about 2-3 hours from Lobuche, we will get to Gorekshep, a tranquil location dotted with some lodges and proceed to make our hike all the way to the top of the edge, finally arriving at the Everest Base Camp, where all the pious prayer flags and small pyramidal stacking of stones will greet us. Here, The Khumbu Icefall is an utterly anthemic sight, looking like all the world’s glittering white confetti in a considerably colossal vastness of space, with the materialization of Khumbutse and Lingtren mountains looking down on us like the Titans eternally petrified in a state of silent fixtures from the beginning of time.

    We shall soak in all this natural wonders, eternally privileged as we are- for being able to experience this halfway across the globe away our homes in an entirely foreign land; and cherish all the sights that we see, one that we would not be able to experience anywhere else. After our endeavors at the Everest Base Camp, we shall return to Gorakshep. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 11: Gorakshep - Kala Pathar (5545m/18188ft) - Gorakshep - Pheriche (4210m/13809ft) Duration: 7 hours

    This is a cardinal day as well for the trek where we will walk up to Kala Patthar, located at the elevation of 5545m. This is the amazing spot for viewing Mount Everest, as the world’s highest webcam, The Mount Everest Webcam is located here. The hike will be toilsome but the reward for all that will be the most wonderful and breath-taking (quite literally because of the elevation!) panoramic view of Mount Everest, Nuptse, Chagatse, Lhotse and the Pumori, all silently gazing down at the miniscule humans who dare climb the mysterious sonority of the natural Olympians all antiquated since the emergence of land on Earth.
    We will then proceed to return to Gorakshep and walk down to Pheriche. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 12: Pheriche to Namche (3440m/11283ft) Duration: 7 hours

    Easy trekking along the Imja River, we will make our way to Tengboche from where we will move down to Phungki Thanka. We shall also pass Kyangjuma on our hike back to Namche. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 13: Namche to Lukla (2800m/9184ft) Duration: 7 hours

    We will on this day walk on a trail moving steeply downward. On the way, we will walk across suspension bridges decorated with the prayer flags above the gushing Dudh Koshi. The views of open plains, pine and rhododendron forests as well as snow covered peaks will enchant you. As we reach Lukla, we can just relax. In the evening, we can celebrate the victory of accomplishing the trek. Overnight at guesthouse, breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

  • Day 14: Lukla to Kathmandu

    The mountains will bid you adieu for the last time as you fly back to Kathmandu from Lukla, which will take about 30 minutes. After landing in the Kathmandu airport, you will be transferred to the Hotel where you shall stay overnight. Breakfast included.

I was recommended the Everest Base Camp Trek from my friend and I decided to undergo this trekking because of high recommendations. Nepal Hiking Team was also pretty high on the recommendation list and definitely I decided to go along the trekking journey with them. Accompanied by my guide, Narayan, I started my trekking journey with NHT. I really liked the option of flexibility they provided to me on the trek as well. Since I had wanted to extend my stay in Kathmandu for a few more days to have a look around the city, NHT happily complied and arranged everything for me. The trekking journey was one of the most beautiful journeys I had ever taken. The views of the snowy mountains and the villages and the landscape were all extremely beautiful and something that I hadn’t ever experienced before! While visiting the temples and the monasteries as well, it fascinated me to no end. Nepal is a truly exotic land and the people’s warm hospitality and their friendliness is unprecedented. Because of their warm embrace and their willingness to help- my trekking journey was even more fun and highlighting. I met lots of other travelers and trekkers as well. The experience of the whole trekking journey will forever be engraved into my mind and I am definitely joining Nepal Hiking Team again for another trekking journey in Nepal. Because of their friendliness and their professionalism, I loved my vacation time there.

Thank you Narayan, Balaram and Ganga for your wonderful support.. Highly appreciated.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is one the most recommended trekking package out there, and as I had several choices to undergo trekking for the very first time in Nepal, I also chose the EBC Trek with NHT. While I arrived in Kathmandu, I was greeted very warmly by my guide, Bal Kumar. With good and friendly embraces, he offered me a garland of flowers and then I was transferred to my Hotel in Thamel. Thamel also is quite fascinating I must concur. The very next day, I was given a wonderful tour of the Kathmandu Valley and many of its sites. I visited the temples and the stupas. It was all very enchanting. The capital is quite crowded on some places, but on others, it’s lovely. Preparing for my trek to Everest started after that. Bal Kumar made sure that I had all of the equipment. (I was given sleeping bags and Down Jackets for complimentary use by NHT, which was pretty good of them to do). Starting off the trek, I was at Lukla and then I started my hour’s long hike. The landscape is beautiful and trekking on the beautiful trails while the atmosphere is just lovely and serene and quite vibrant truly is like heaven. The rivers and the trees and the long suspension bridges all seems to be alive. The villages and the settlements on the deep locations of the mountains and the forests were even more so. I met a lot of trekkers and other travelers as well. It was such a joyful affair. This is the kind of experience everybody should have. Just trekking to the world’s tallest mountain with nature and good people, I could not be more happier! I was extremely satisfied with the services of my travel agency as well, Nepal Hiking Team! They delivered their services and I did not have to worry about anything at all throughout my trekking journey. For the price that I had paid, the services of food and meal and accommodations and transportations and the rest were all covered adequately in my opinion. The sights of the mountains were absolutely grand as well. The emergence of the snowy mountain peaks in the distance while I was on the trail literally lifted my spirits! This is the best trekking package for beginners like me! I tremendously enjoyed my time with NHT trekking!!

I took the Everest Base Camp Trek package for my vacation this month last year. I am mostly interested in travelling to exotic Asian countries and as my vacation rolled around, I decided with trekking to Everest. I chose Nepal Hiking Team because they were recommended to me from a friend. I looked them up on various travel sites and they had a lot of positive reviews. So, I decided to book my trip with them. I certainly was not disappointed! Nepal Hiking Team delivered their services, from accommodations to transportation, in the most proficient and excellent of ways. The whole journey of trekking to the base camp of Everest was filled with memorable events. The guide who accompanied me as well, Bhim, was very helpful and accompanied me very nicely and excellently. The accommodations were a big part of my memories of the Everest Base Camp Trek because I met lots of other travelers and trekkers there. Since I had booked my trip in the peak season of trekking, the accommodations were packed with people. It made for a good sleepover with fellow trekkers. Meeting others in the trekking trails in Nepal is especially grand because I was a solo traveler. The best part of the journey was Everest. The trekking trails were beautiful and the villages and the settlements that I stayed at were gorgeous to look at. The traditional people in their traditional Nepali outfits, going about their day and little children running up to foreign people were fun to observe and undergo. Nepal is a very beautiful country and the remote villages and isolated settlements in the secluded locations of the Himalayas are fascinating to observe. The landscape is utterly gorgeous and as I was walking through the Sagarmatha National Park, the landscape was decorated with prayer flags. Looking at the vast grasslands on the park was quite appealing. Overall, I loved my vacation time there, it was the most fun I have ever had. The people, the landscape, the mountains, everything combined gorgeously to make my vacation worthwhile. I would definitely recommend Nepal Hiking Team as I think their services and their guides and their whole management team did an excellent job in helping me in my vacation. It was all done in a cheaper price as well. They offered me the option of changing my itinerary as well, which I think is pretty neat. Good Work NHT!

The Everest Base Cam Trek that I and my friends went through was one of the most fun experiences. We were planning on visiting Nepal for quite some time now and when we had finally arranged everything, we decided with Nepal Hiking Team and they arranged everything and made sure everything was done in the most professional way. Paban, our guide for the trip, picked us up at the airport with great friendliness and a warm welcome with flower garlands and then after that, the accommodations, the transportations and everything else was all managed by the agency. We had no problems at all regarding anything and we did not face any issues either. Because of our guide’s fast thinking and his friendly demeanor, the trip was enjoyable for all of us. The isolated mountain villages and the monasteries that we came across on the trekking trails were amazing to experience. The sight of the mountains itself was absolutely amazing to look at! The day we made it to the base camp of Everest was one of the most memorable days for all of us. Nepal Hiking Team arranged everything at a very reasonable price as well, and for what it was worth, the services they provided amply made up for everything. With professional guides and staff members and everybody that were involved, Nepal Hiking Team is truly one of the best travel agency that we have come across.

I did the Everest Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team last year and it was the most amazing and Exceptional trip of my life! Chuda Mani picked us up at the airport with garlands of marigold and silk scarves, which was a very touching hospitable Nepali welcome. Then, as we were driven to the hotel, he explained our program to us about the Everest Base Camp. The sightseeing tour around Kathmandu Valley was very insightful as well. We had the tour of the valley before we started out trek to the base camp of Everest. The heritage sights in Kathmandu and the durbar squares were nice and very wonderful to look at. The valley of Kathmandu, or the city more like, was crowded with people and the area around Thamel, which is where we had our hotel’s location as well, was filled with so many shops at every corner of the street and small temples, it was bizarre! The trek ten started with the flight to Lukla, and the trekking journey all the way to the base camp of Everest was wonderful! The many tiny villages and the settlements along the trail were different from the crowded Kathmandu and provided a drastic change in scenery from the city. The villages had the feeling of being so far away from the busyness of the city and the people seemed much calmer and peaceful there.

The lifestyle of the people in those village areas was genuinely inspiring and I enjoyed my time there a lot. The guesthouses and the tiny lodges that we were accommodated in were comfortable and the people were hospitable, in fact the higher we trekked, the more hospitable they were! Chuda Mani then proceeded to guide us throughout the trekking journey and the sceneries of the mountains and the villages were everything I had imagined it would be. The settlement at Namche was beautiful, and we had a look around the Art Gallery as well the Sherpa Culture Museum as well. The sights of the mountains were extraordinary! Nepal Hiking Team managed everything, and all of the transactions and the arrangements were done skillfully. The guide, Mr. Chuda Mani Thapa, was also extremely helpful. The staffs at the head office were also available all the time to me, which was super convenient.

I loved my vacation in Nepal, climbing to the Everest Base Camp. Nepal Hiking Team did a wonderful and satisfactory job in accompanying me in my journey. The trek was also doe in a very reasonable price for me, and I would definitely recommend Nepal Hiking Team to people.

The team and staff at Nepal Hiking Team are amazing and very professional! I took this package for the Everest Base Camp Trek and I simply loved all of the time I spent there. The experience of mingling and communication with the people there and the locals was fun, and staying at the little hotels and guest houses was divine! The most spectacular thing about the whole trip was the views of the mountains that I got. The mountains ranges along the distance were lovely, and short trekking along the wide rivers was fun too. Slow hiking along the trail to the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain was everything I expected it would be. The people from Nepal Hiking Team were available to me at all times, and I did not have any serious problems along my trekking journey, everything on the trip was well-arranged and everybody followed the itinerary and completed the journey in the nick of time. I loved the vast expanses of foliages along the way, and the rivers that we trekked along with. The snows and the cold atmosphere on the higher places and the villages on the higher elevations provided an absolutely tranquil environment for me to do my lovely trekking journey in. Nepal Hiking Team is efficient and I trust them with my trips!

I had the chance to visit the Kathmandu valley two days in a row, because the people at the establishment made sure to make me a customized itinerary, and so, those two days in Kathmandu valley was such a blast! I had an absolutely swell time, and I bought lots of tiny little trinkets and totems from Thamel, it was amazing! After my tours of the Kathmandu Valley was done, a flight to Lukla was taken, and I loved the whole excitement everyone had while for the trek, and the excitement definitely rubbed off a lot on me too, and added to the brims of excitements that I was already feeling! At Lukla, I was so surprised to see that it was vastly different from Kathmandu. My first expectation of Lukla, without prior knowledge was that it would be similar to Kathmandu, but I was so wrong! Lukla, according to me, was nothing at all like Kathmandu, and there was a lot more trees and surroundings of green than in Kathmandu. And then, the trekking journey began and all along the trails leading to the base camp, I came across many villages, lovely beautiful trails, and I had a little detour (again, because of my ideal customized itinerary), to the lakes as well, on the region. And the monasteries and the gumbas of the Buddhist culture people was a nice respite from the trek. I had lovely time looking at the wonderful out-of-this-world views of the natural environments and the fact that I was one of the many people who could say that they actually had been to the top of the world was just stunning and I definitely did brag a lot about it when I got back home!

Big Adventure

The trekking journey is definitely unlike anything you will experience, and the blend of the Nepali culture, their hospitality and the religious aspects added so much to the trek. Along with the wonderful views of Everest, and all of the other wonderful mountains, the little tea houses that we had been accommodated at was also very pretty. It was a spring time during our visit, on the month of April, and the pretty flowers of the rhododendron looked so pretty!

Nepal Hiking Team definitely made the trip flawless and conducted everything brilliantly, it was amazing!

Paban picked us up from the airport when we landed, and the whole trek was done with him as our guide. One thing I must tell is the perfect way everything was handled and done by the agency. I did not go through any hassle or any bothersome happenings at all during my trip. It was an amazing experience. Baban, as our guide, really impressed us with his [professionalism, and his help was very punctual. He arranged everything, and the trek was done flawlessly. The Everest base Camp trek was also enjoyed very much by us, it was very fun. We loved the various monasteries and the temples that we visited, and the stone walls and the carvings were all very intricate and so different. I liked learning about the cultures and interacting with people along the trek as well. During the entire journey, we met with lots of people who we made acquaintances with, and became friends with as well. At the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, we could hardly contain our excitement! The little villages, and the Gumbas and the temples along the trekking journey were amazing to look at. The little tea houses and the little guest houses that they had running just added more to the whole trekking experience. Hiking up higher and higher elevation, it became apparent that the trek and the final emergence of Mount Everest were coming closer and closer. The trekking trails also changed drastically while we were moving, and the air turned colder and the weather began to drop down, and we simply loved the whole experience. Climbing to the base camp of Everest at last, it was the most satisfying feeling, and I think I might have cried a little when that happened! Nepal Hiking Team provided the best services, and our guide for the trip was so immensely helpful. The whole team and everyone involved made the trekking journey a memorable one for me, and I will most probably remember it for the rest of my life, my climb to Everest!

Trekking to Everest base Camp seemed like a formidable task at first for me. But, since I decided that I really needed to put some flavor into my life, I decided to do the trekking journey pretty much on a whip! I decided upon Nepal Hiking Team from various recommendations, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed! I decided upon Everest because I thought it would be a good first time to start off on the trek, and then decide upon other additional treks later on, based on how I was liking it. I loved! Nepal Hiking Team decided upon the customization of the itinerary, and re-scheduled the days for me, and made everything for me easier. The trek was just so good, it was done on such a professional level, and it’s just great! I think my absolute favorite part of the trek was hiking to the base camp itself, and then the vantage point on Kalapatthar, I took lots of amazing photography and I had within my viewfinder the most amazing vies of the mountains! Everest, when you come up to it for the first time, is just astonishing. I live in a pretty flat surfaced area where I live, there isn’t much rigger on the terrain, and the sheer amount of ups and downs during the trek was a surprise and a nice little additional fun for me on the trip. The park was amazing; the atmosphere of the national park was very nice and peaceful. The trekking trails were easy, and the villages and the people on the trail were all very helpful. I enjoyed my stay at quaint little tea houses and trudging through the villages was also very refreshing from all the city life. The country side there is so different, it just opens up like turning a page, one second I was travelling through the busy city of Kathmandu, and the next, it was like I was off to some remote isolated in-the-middle-of-nowhere place (which, come to think of it, is somewhat is exactly that), and the whole experience was very good. I really enjoyed my short time there, trekking on those lovely mountains, and I sure will miss the temples and the little children running around the places in the high elevation, and the very air of the peaks.
