The trek is a journey through the heart of the Himalayas leading right to the foot of the world’s tallest mountain. Adding to the natural landscapes of the Everest region are the snowy summits and the unique culture of the Sherpas.

The sunrise view from Kalapatthar is one of the best sunrise views you will bear witness to. The sheer magnitude of Mt. Everest (8848m) and journeying to its foot but not something you would want to miss out on. The Everest Base camp trek difficulty is moderate so, it means you won’t have any difficulties reaching the astounding base camp.

EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK OVERVIEW

The Trek begins as you land at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. We follow our arrival in this majestic nation with a tour of the UNESCO-enlisted world heritage sites around the Kathmandu Valley. With an early teaser of the Himalayas, we take a scenic flight to the Lukla airstrip. We kick off our trek heading towards Phakding.

Through the vibrant hamlets of Monjo and Jorsalle, the winding trail takes us into the heart of Sagarmatha National Park ending at Namche. Here, we take a day off to properly acclimatize to the growing altitude. Thereon, we continue our journey heading towards Tengboche and then onto Dingboche. The final stretch of our climb sees us take on the hamlet of Lobuche from where we make our way to the Everest Base Camp.

The next day begins early as we head toward Kalapatthar to enjoy the Himalayan sunrise. As the summits of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Nuptse (7,861m), Lhotse (8,414m), Ama Dablam (6,856m), and Lingtren (6,749m) light up the sky, there is no place on Earth you would rather be.

The way back home sees us travel through the descending Himalayan trail leading towards Pheriche and then onto Namche Bazaar. Trekking back to Lukla signals the end of our journey as we fly back to Kathmandu. You can also find the full Everest base camp trek itinerary in the itinerary section right next to the overview tab.

Located at the foothills of the majestic Himalayas, the town has been a trading and administrative hub for generations.
To let our bodies properly adapt with the increasing altitudes today, we take some time off at Namche. For our acclimatization hike, we can either journey to the town of Khumjung and Khunde or head over towards Everest View Hotel. The journey to Khumjung and Khunde is more culture-centric with vibrant hamlets and monasteries. The hike towards the Everest View Hotel focuses more on the Himalayan views including sightings of the Mt. Everest (8,848m).
Trekking through the gradually opening valley, we make our way towards Tengboche.

Later, we reach Pangboche with the stunning views of Ama Dablam (6,856m) and Thamserku (6,608m). Further up, the trail takes us to the banks of the Imja River beyond which is Dingboche.
The final of our acclimatization days today we rest to adapt to the growing altitude. The hamlet of Dingboche also labelled as the “summer valley” offers a variety of acclimatization hikes. The most popular of which is the journey towards Dingboche Ri. Located at an altitude of 5,075m the mountain top is the perfect place to enjoy a stunning Himalayan panorama accommodating the summits of Lobuche East (6119m), Kangtega (6685m), Taboche Peak (6367m), and Ama Dablam (6856m).
The Himalayan trail heading out of Dingboche sets off on an ascending run headed towards Dughla. Zig zagging through the majestic snowy landscapes we reach Pheriche. The final stretch of the trek takes us through the glacial moraines Khumbu Glacier. The views of Khumbutse (6,665m), Lingtren (6,749m), and Pumo Ri (7,165m) adorn the horizon.

Descending through the hamlets of Monjo and Jorsalle we exit the national park landing alongside the Dudh Koshi River. Up and over the suspension bridge, we cross several small hamlets including Bengkar, Phakding, and Chhuthawa on our way to Lukla.
The day begins early as we prepare to take off from Lukla heading towards Kathmandu. Recreating the thrill of taking off from the Lukla airstrip, we take to the skies looking back at the Himalayas. The 30-minute flight offers a contrasting set of landscapes from the snow white Himalayas to the lush green valleys. Touching down at Kathmandu we head directly to the hotel which concludes our days of travelling.
We have a free day in Kathmandu before catching our international flight. Lukla flight often gets weather issues and flight cancellations / delays and this day is used on potential problems.

    This was our second trek from Nepal Treks and Tour. We choose Nepal Treks and Tours because of their service from the last trek. Everest base camp was really beautiful so I recommend to contact Nepal treks and tour while doing any trekking activities in Nepal.
