Popularly referred to as the “stairway to heaven” for good reason, Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most popular mountain trails in the world, and a must-do for every mountain lover. Located in Nepal’s 2,400km Himalayan stretch, it offers spectacular scenery, immersive Himalayan experiences, and an intriguing cultural heritage – all along the foothills of Mt. Everest. Beautifully contrasting, you will find yourself awestruck – from rolling green fields and dense forests to rushing blue streams and barren flatlands with glacial pools as you ascend. If you’re looking for an unforgettable trekking experience, Everest Base Camp is the place to go!
At Nepal Base Camp Treks, our full-service Everest Base Camp Trek will allow you to experience the splendor of Mount Everest and other snow-capped mountains. Everest Base Camp remains the top choice for novice explorers since Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa first climbed it in 1953. You climb over [5,000m/16,400ft] in the last few days of the trek, which isn’t as challenging as you might expect. A prior experience with trekking is not required for this trek, and it promises to be an enjoyable journey.
Our Everest base camp trek itinerary is designed for travelers who want to explore off-the-beaten paths and hidden valleys, while still allowing time to acclimatize. From Namche Bazar, we take a detour for three days to explore side villages such as Khumjung and Phortse instead of following the more popular route to Dingboche. This also reduces the rapid ascent from Namche Bazar to Dingboche [4412m/14475ft] by minimizing the number of rapid ascents.
Kathmandu is the starting point for your journey to Everest base camp. You’ll spend one night in Kathmandu before embarking on a mountain flight to Lukla airport. This airport was built with the help of the late Sir Edmund Hillary, and the trail to Everest base camp is named after him. Upon arrival at Lukla airport, you’ll meet your senior guide and other crew members. Once you’ve sorted out your equipment, you’ll begin hiking the famous trails to the foothills of Mt. Everest.
This hike takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery in Sherpa country, starting by the banks of the Dudh Kosi River. You’ll get to explore friendly villages like Namche Bazaar, and acclimatize in Khumbu, Namche Bazaar, and Dingboche before heading to Everest Base Camp. This trip includes visits to Khumjung and Phortse, as well as two nights at Namche Bazar and two nights at Dingboche for acclimatization.
The best time for Everest Base Camp Trek is during the spring season. This is because the weather is more stable during this time and there is less chance of bad weather conditions. Additionally, the days are longer during the spring, so you will have more time to enjoy the trek.
A trekking permit is required to enter the Sagarmatha national park during your mountain land trekking experience. The local tribe does not allow entry into the valley without a trekking permit. All trekkers must secure three trekking permits at the same cost. The form for a trekking permit requires two passport-sized photos and a photocopy of your passport.
To trek in the Khumbu region, you will need to acquire a few permits, which include the TIMS card, a local permit, and a permit for Sagarmatha National Park. The TIMS Card for Trekking can be obtained in Kathmandu, and the Local Rural Municipality Card and Sagarmatha National Card can be obtained directly from the park entrance points at Lukla and Monjo Jorsale. Please note that this region is not accessible without a trekking permit. If you are a Nepalese citizen, you do not need to wait in Kathmandu for the permit. If you don’t need a trekking permit from Kathmandu valley, you can obtain one in Lukla.
