The Everest Base Camp Trek is the most popular trek in the entire 2400 km stretch of the Himalayas in Nepal, with the extraordinary culture of the Sherpa community as well as breathtaking views, providing a true Himalayan experience while trekking at the base of Mt.
Experience the majesty of Mount Everest [8,848m/29,029ft] up close with views of many other snow-capped mountains on our all-inclusive Everest Base Camp Trek. The Everest Base Camp trek gained popularity in 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa first climbed the mountain, and it has been a favorite of beginner climbers ever since.
The trail goes over [5,000m/16,400ft] for the last few days before reaching Everest Base Camp but the trek isn’t as strenuous as imagined and does not require prior trekking experience while promising a fulfilling journey. Adding to the fun-filled Everest base camp trekking tour, the panoramic views of the Himalayas, monasteries, culture and the mountain flight to Lukla are a few of the highlights of this trip.
This trip is not just about Everest base camp; We also get a chance to climb Kala Pattar (5545m) for a panoramic view of Everest. We are confident that this base camp in the magnificent Khumbu region of Nepal is the best trek.
Our Everest base camp trek itinerary has been devised carefully keeping more acclimatization, visiting less trodden routes and exploring hidden valleys. Instead of following the standard route from Namche to Dingboche, we detour from Namche Bazar for 3 days and explore the side villages such as Khumjung and Phortse. This side tour also minimises the rapid ascent from Namche Bazar [3450m/11319ft] to Dingboche [4412m/14475ft] and provides a better-acclimatized walk.
Your journey to Everest base camp gets into gear at the ancient valley of Kathmandu. After a night at Kathmandu, we embark on a fantastic mountain flight to Lukla airport built with the help of the famous mountaineer we all know as the late Sir Edmund Hillary, for whose namesake this famous trail of the Everest Base Camp was born. On touchdown at Lukla airport, we meet our senior guide and the other crew members, sort out our equipment and sooner than later, we hit these famous trails to the foothills of the king of all peaks – Mt. Everest.
We begin our hike slow & easy by the banks of the clean waters of the Dudh Kosi River, into the soul of Sherpa country on onto the thespian high alpine scenery beyond the horizons. We get off the primary trails sometimes and stroll into friendly villages, including the hustling bazaar of Namche. The village towns of the Khumbu, Namche Bazaar and Dingboche are ideal spots to get well acclimatized; before we make a beeline on routes used by famous mountaineers to reach Everest Base Camp. Apart from visiting Khumjung and Phortse, we will spend 2 nights at Namche Bazar [3,450m/11,319ft] and another 2 nights at Dingboche [4,412m/14,475ft] for proper acclimatization and allow our body to adapt to the high altitude.

WHEN IS THE BEST SEASON TO TREK THE EVEREST REGION?
Mid-September to November (autumn) and March to May (spring) are the best seasons for teahouse/lodge treks in Nepal.
June to August (monsoon) are the rainy months. Very difficult but the weather is perfect for keen botanists and the skies are sometimes clear.
During the trek, it offers a magnificent view of rhododendron flowers blooming in March, April and May.
We do not recommend the trek in winter (December February). But if you trek to your liking, the morning temperature is cool but not unbearable and it warms up during the day trek with clear skies on most days.
