Everest Base Camp trek is quite simply the classic trek in Nepal. High in the priority list of trekkers, the Everest Base Camp is one of the most visited regions in the Himalaya. Starting from Lukla, trek up the Dudh Koshi valley leads to the famous Namche Bazaar. The route has an abundance of tea houses. Phakding and Monjo are the popular stopovers on the first day and just beyond Monjo is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park at Jorsale check point. Permits are checked here.
The trail that follows the Dudh Koshi River starts going uphill from the suspension bridge just a few minutes from Jorsale. It is good to halt here for a couple of days to acclimatize by walking in and around Namche as acclimatization cannot be done in a hurry. A visit to Syangboche or some Sherpa villages such as Thame, Khumjung and Khunde walk from Namche are good options for whiling away your time here. Leaving Namche Bazaar, the trail follows the valley of Imja Khola with spectacular views of Thamserku, Kangtega and Ama Dablam mountains, and dominating the skyline ahead are the giants, Lhotse and Everest. The most common night halt after Namche is at the top of a steep climb from the Imja Khola at Tengboche. The Tengboche Monastery is one of the most famous monasteries, probably because of its unrivaled backdrop, Mt. Ama Dablam. Following the Imja Khola from Tengboche, the trail ascends through Pangboche until you reach Pheriche or Dingboche, where that day’s trek ends. Another day of acclimatization follows with a fascinating side trip to Chhukung is about a 3 hours from Dingboche. From Dingboche walk leads to Lobuche which sits on the lateral moraine of the Khumbu glacier, what follows is a roughly 3 hour hike from Lobuche to the last settlement on the trail known as Gorak Shep. The few tea houses at this place provide shelter for the night before one undertakes the final leg of the trek over the glacier to Everest Base Camp.

Day 3
Day 03 : Fly to Lukla, 35 minutes, start trek to Phakding (2652m), 3 hours.

In the early morning we take the spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827m), flying parallel to giant Himalayan Mountains bordering Nepal and China (Tibet). The flight time is about 30 minutes and lands at an airstrip built by Sir Edmund Hillary and the Sherpas in the mid-1960s. After landing we have time to explore the village while our Sherpa crew sort and load our trekking equipment. In the afternoon we begin our trek by descending towards the Dudh Kosi River where we join the main trail to Namche Bazaar, located just above Chaunrikharka (2713m) at Thalsharoa (2680m). The walking is easy and after passing through the many small village to Phakding. Overnight at lodge.

Day 4
Day 04 : Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m), 6 hours. Overnight at Lodge.

From Phakding we cross the river and head up the valley, following porters from the south that is ferrying supplies to Namche Bazaar. The trail keeps close to the river valley and is lined with beautiful blue pine and rhododendron forest that is very spectacular in the spring months, when the flowers are in bloom. We cross the Dudh Kosi River at Benkar, where there are tantalizing glimpses of the snow-capped peaks of KusumKanguru (6369m) and Thamserku (6623m). From here it is only a short walk to Monjo (2835m), where we arrive in time for lunch. In the afternoon the walking is a little tougher and includes the steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. From Monjo it is a short walk to the entrance of the national park, before we cross the Dudh Kosi River to Jorsale(2805m). The trek continues upstream on generally flat terrain, crossing back to the right bank to the confluence of the Bhote Kosi and Dudh Kosi Rivers, where we start the steep climb to Namche Bazaar. After crossing a large and stable suspension bridge high above the river, we slowly ascend at a steady pace. There are some fantastic photographic opportunities from the top, as the peaks of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Taweche are viewed.

Day 5
Day 05 : Rest day at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization. Overnight at Lodge.

Namche is a prosperous village situated in a large protected hollow. It gained its importance during the period when Tibetan salt was traded for the lowland grains of Nepal. Today a limited amount of trade still exists at Namche and Tibetans are often seen in the village trading rugs and Chinese-made goods, clothing, salt and dried meat. It is recommended that you take the opportunity to see both the sunrise and sunset views from the national park headquarters above the village. The stunning vista includes a superb panorama of the Khumbu peaks and great views of Everest. After breakfast, a variety of options exists. Perhaps a walk towards Thami (3810m) above the beautiful BhoteKhola River Valley or a visit to the national park headquarters to see the interesting displays of Sherpa lifestyle and culture. There is also a mountaineering display and information on the park’s flora and fauna.

Day 6
Day 06 : Namche Bazaar to Tangboche (4038m), 5/30 hours. Overnight at Lodge.

Walk flat ascend through Kyangjuma. From there we descend till Phunki Tenga. we ascend steeply at first and then contour high above the valley, enjoying excellent views ofThamserku and AmaDablam (6856m) from the top. About an hour’s walk from PhaunkiTenga, We are now trekking beyond the tree line. We are now at higher altitudes and it is important to take notice of our trek leader’s advice and recommendations regarding rest and fluid intake.

Day 7
Day 07 : Tangbche to Dingboche (4410m), 5 hours. Overnight at Lodge.

At frist, 15 minutes descend to the deboche. Genteelly, ascend flat along the ImajaKhola river band. After cross the suspension bridge need to ascend to the pangboche.Our route follows the trail high above the ImjaKhola, passing the tea houses at Orsho, before again crossing the ImjaKhola and old glacial moraines to our lodge in the settlement of Dingboche. Here we find a beautiful patchwork of small fields enclosed by stone walls protecting the crops of barley and potatoes from the cold winds. The scenery is once again spectacular and although Everest has disappeared behind the Lhotse-Nuptse Ridge, the huge peaks that tower above the eastern end of the valley are ample compensation. We are now almost completely above the tree-line. In clear conditions, look out for spectacular sunsets here and on AmaDablam, the south face of Lhotse to the north, and also Island Peak in the centre of the valley.

Day 8
Day 08 : Dingoche to Lobuche (4930m), 4/30 hours. Overnight at Lodge.

In the morning we ascend the small ridge behind the village above the Pheriche valley. From the top, Tabuche(6367m) and Cholatse (6335m) make for a striking scene, as they seem to lean forwards from across the valley in the west. To the north, Lobuche Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of the Cho La dominate the skyline. The walking is now generally fairly flat on wide-open fields but do take your time and ensure you are well hydrated. Late in the morning we cross the KhumbuKhola at Dughla (4620m) and take a light lunch at the foot of the huge terminal moraines of the Khumbu Glacier flowing off Everest. In the afternoon, there is a solid and quite steep climb on a rocky trail to the top of the moraines. On the crest of the ridge, you pass a line of memorial cairns, built in memory of the Sherpas and climbers who have died on various Everest expeditions over the last fifty or so years. From here the view is spectacular, Pumori (7145m), Lingtren (6697m), Khumbutse (6623m) are seen at the head of the valley, whilst Everest is hidden behind the towering walls of Nuptse and Lhotse. We follow the valley stream to our lodge at Lobuche, arriving early afternoon. Today is a tiring day but the fantastic scenery makes it all very worthwhile. In addition, our time spent at higher altitude in the Gokyo area will doubtless have helped our acclimatization process.

Day 9
Day 09 : Lobuche to GorakShep (5160m), 3 hours. Overnight at Lodge.

As the trek to Gorakshep is relatively short, we have the opportunity for a leisurely breakfast before beginning the day’s walk From Lobuche. We follow the broad valley that runs parallel to Khumbu Glacier. A gradual ascent enables us to build the slow, steady rhythm required when walking at high altitude. When we reach the moraines of ChangriShar Glacier, we make a series of small ascents and descents over a rocky trail lined with cairns that leads eventually to the surprising glacial sands of GorakShep (5140m) – reached after about three hours of walking. After a quick bite we gear up accordingly to head off towards the Everest Base Camp. The trek to the base camp can be achieved in around three hours and if trekking in the popular climbing period of March to May, we will almost certainly encounter yaks and porters supplying food and equipment to expeditions here. From Everest Base Camp we do not get views of Mount Everest, but we are able to see the notorious Everest Ice Fall that flows from the Western side, which is regarded as technically the hardest and most dangerous section of the mountain. The return journey from the Base Camp to GorakShep takes the same amount of time. We have an early dinner so that we are able to get up early the next day for awe-inspiring views of the Himalayan giants from Kala Patar.

Day 10
Day 10 : Gorakhshep to Everest Base Camp trek – Gorakhsep (5160m), 3 hours.

We wake up early the next day for the trek to Everest Base Camp(5,364 m/17,594 ft) to experience the base camp of world’s highest peak. The base camp of Everest lies in the bowl shape so the views of mountian is not possible to see clearly. Howerver the camping sites of Everest climbing, Khumbu glacier views and many other interesting things can be explore during the day. Although lower viewpoints can provide views that are almost as good.Pumori(7165m), Nuptse(7861m), Lhotse(8414m), Lhotse Shar(8393m), AmaDablam(6856m), and Mt. Everest(8848m) the highest mountain in the world, surround us. About three kilometres away and some 200 metres below, the area of the Everest Base Camp can be seen in a bowl at the bottom of the Khumbu Ice Fall. For many trekkers, reaching Kala Patar is a very emotional experience and it is worthwhile spending as long as you wish in order to savors this special moment. The descent back down to GorakShep is easy and once back at the lodge, we stop for the night.

Day 11
Day 11 : Gorakshep to Kala Patar – Pheriche (4270m), 6-7 hours. Overnight at Lodge.

We wake up early the next day for the trek to Kala Patar (5545m) to experience sensational sunrise views from this amazing vantage point. From the lodge the ascent is quite steep, so start very slowly and try to ascend at a steady rhythmic pace. Kala Patar is the rocky hilltop below Pumori. It is a tough walk because of the altitude, but the view from the top surpasses the wildest imagination. It will probably take an one hour and a half to reach the summit from GorakShep. Although lower viewpoints can provide views that are almost as good.Pumori(7165m), Nuptse(7861m), Lhotse(8414m), Lhotse Shar(8393m), AmaDablam(6856m), and Mt. Everest(8848m) the highest mountain in the world, surround us. About three kilometres away and some 200 metres below, the area of the Everest Base Camp can be seen in a bowl at the bottom of the Khumbu Ice Fall. For many trekkers, reaching Kala Patar is a very emotional experience and it is worthwhile spending as long as you wish in order to savors this special moment. The descent back down to GorakShep is easy and once back at the lodge we have a quick drink and head off to the rooms to pack our kit bags whilst breakfast is being prepared. After breakfast we set off to Lobuche and Thugla, where we stop for lunch. After lunch we cross the Khumbu Khola and head down the valley below lobuche to Pheriche, where we stop for the night.

Gently flat way descends till to Namche Bazzer. We enjoy a leisurely departure from Namche Bazaar with a final opportunity to visit the shops in the bazaar.
