Base Camp Everest Trek Overview

Base Camp Everest Trek is the best trekking adventure in Nepal that offers beautiful Himalayan views and the complimenting trans-Himalayan topography along with rich Sherpa culture. The Base Camp Everest Trek is persistently exceptional with every single one of its attributes.

The winsome journey to the Base Camp Everest Trek starts with a guided Kathmandu city tour that includes visits to the city's UNESCO world heritage sites. Then with a stunning short flight to Lukla, the trek begins. The trail of the trekking journey passes through many accentuating Sherpa villages, along with other major highlights of the Khumbu region. With winding tracks along the Sagarmatha National Park—one of the two natural UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Nepal--trekkers are presented with thick canopies of deciduous forests and blooming rhododendrons. At every turn of the meandering trail, the sight and views of the Mahalangur Himalayas present an unforgettable ambience.  Furthermore, the Khumbu's cultural side cannot be felt more closely than during the Base Camp Everest Trek. With Sherpa villages and the popular tourist hub, Namche Bazaar, along with the largest Tengboche Monastery, the journey is filled with colourful prayer flags and Mani walls opulently carved with Buddhist prayers. In addition, the vantage point of Kala Patthar adds extraordinary splendour to the journey. Presenting a panoramic view of the entire Mount Everest (8848m) massif along with many of its neighbouring peaks, both the vantage points of Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp are quite exceptional. The best time to do the Base Camp Everest Trek is during the months of March to May and September to December.

Base Camp Everest Trek Itinerary

Upon your arrival in Kathmandu, you will be picked up by one of our office representatives and he/she will escort you to the hotel. Have some rest, and in the evening, you will meet the guide who will brief you about the trek. Overnight at a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu.

Today you will visit the major UNESCO world heritage sites of Kathmandu city, facilitated by our experienced guide. You can see street vendors selling everything from spices to small utensils and clothing, tightly packed shops and lots of restaurants and landmarks that define the city’s character. The tour will take you to Kathmandu Durbar Square, the Pashupatinath Temple, the Boudhanath Stupa, and the Swayambhunath Temple. Each of these sites holds historical and religious importance. They each reflect Nepal’s past as well as showcase unique Nepali art and architecture. After the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel. Stay overnight at the hotel.

Early in the morning, you will be transported to the airport for your Lukla flight. The short 30-minute flight shows the changing terrains of the city transform into secluded lands and hills, along with the views of the mountain peaks. Upon your landing in Lukla, you will then trek to Phakding through the side of Dudh Koshi River with the beauty of Kusum Khangkaru (6367m). Stay overnight in the hotel.

From Phakding, the trek continues alongside Dudh Koshi River towards the popular mountain town of Namche Bazaar. The trekking trail passes through many smaller villages on the way to Monjo, which is the entry point of Sagarmatha National Park. The trail continues through thick pine forests until reaching Namche Bazaar. Stay overnight in Namche.

Along with being the most popular hub of Khumbu, Namche Bazaar is also a great stop for acclimatization. The entire town’s architecture is that of a natural amphitheatre, with houses and shops built on step-like levels. You can visit the Syangboche Airstrip as well, a lonesome land situated just above the town from where the views of the Himalayan peaks look absolutely ravishing. You can also visit the Everest View Hotel–the highest-located hotel in the world— where you can enjoy the view of the spectacular peaks right in front of you. On your way back from the hotel, you can also visit the Sherpa Culture Museum and the Everest Photo Gallery as well. Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Namche Bazaar.

From Namche Bazaar, the trekking trail further moves along the side of Dudh Koshi River. As you continue along the track, you will reach Phunke Tenga and ascend through Army Barracks towards Tengboche. On reaching Tengboche, you will visit the famous and largest Tengboche Monastery. The entrance to the monastery is also quite intricately decorated with arts and murals of Buddhist legends and stories. Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Tengboche.

From Tengboche, you will cross the suspension bridge over the Imja River, pass along the village of Pangboche, and make your way to Dingboche. One of the key features of the village of Dingboche is its kilometre-long wall built to protect the village’s crops from the cold winds that sweep down the valley. You can witness majestic views of Island Peak (6189m) and Ama Dablam (6856m) from the village of Dingboche. Stay overnight at a guesthouse.

Today is another acclimatization day, and you can spend it hiking to Nangkartshang Peak (5616m). The peak is situated right above Dingboche, and from here, you can see magnificent views of Ama Dablam (6856m), Mount Makalu (8463m), Lhotse (8414m), Cho Oyu (8188m), and Mount Everest (8848m), among many others. The peak of Nangkar Tshang embodies the figure of a mother holding a child, and you can see Ama Dablam (6856m) in all its glory and entirety from the summit of the peak and all the way to its base. After spending some time at Nangkar Tshang, you will return to Dingboche. Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Dingboche.

Today you will ascend on a steep trail towards Dusa village and reach Thokla Pass (4830m). Here, you will find many stone memorials of mountaineers who lost their lives during the Everest summit. Then from here, you will walk along the lateral moraine of Khumbu Glacier to reach Lobuche, enjoying the great view of the mountains in the background. Overnight in the hotel.

Today is the day that you reach the Everest Base Camp. With a slow and careful trek, you will make your way alongside the Khumbu Glacier towards Gorakshep—a small, sparsely occupied settlement. From here, the trail finally reaches the base camp of Mount Everest (8848m). Upon your arrival at the base camp, you can witness great sights of the Khumbu Icefall along with the close view of Mt. Everest (8848m) and other peaks. After spending some time at the base camp, enjoying the sights and the environment, you will return to Gorakshep. Overnight stay at the guesthouse in Gorakshep.

On this day, you will enjoy another major highlight of the Everest Base Camp Trek, a hike to Kala Patthar. One of the best vantage points of the Khumbu region, Kala Patthar offers panoramic views of the entire Everest massif. You will make your way to Kala Patthar early in the morning, and witness the dream-like phenomenon of the rising sun amidst the glorious mountains. The rays of the sun sweep over the snow-capped peaks and turn the off-white Himalayas into a cascade of molten gold and burning embers. After spending some quality time at Kala Patthar, you will make your way back to Pheriche via Lobuche. Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Pheriche.

You will follow the same trail along the Imja River all the way to Tengboche, from where the track moves down towards Namche. It is a relaxing hike back to Namche. The captivating landscape and the beguiling Himalayas make the journey back even more pleasant. The villages also tend to be living with people, and you can witness them working on their terrace farms of barley and potatoes. Stay overnight in Namche.

The hike from Namche back to Lukla moves steeply downwards. Crossing suspension bridges, you will be accompanied by occasional Chortens, prayer flags, Mani walls, and small Gompas lining the trail. Once you reach Lukla, you can roam around the village and have a warm local dinner. Stay overnight in the hotel.

You will say goodbye to the mountains and take the morning flight back to Kathmandu. Upon your arrival in Kathmandu, you can spend your time as you please, shopping or exploring the city on your own. In the evening, you will be entertained with a special dinner, a last piquancy to the whole adventure. Overnight stay at the hotel in Kathmandu.

Today you will be driven to Tribhuvan International Airport for your scheduled flight back home.
