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.

Trip Overview

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.

Everest Base Camp Trek Permit

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.

In October 2014, 2015 I completed another wonderful family trek in Nepal to Langtang and Gosainkund lakes thanks to Sappa and his company “Nepal Base Camp Treks”. I first met Sappa in 2008 on a family Gokyo Lakes Trek and EBC Trek. At that time, I was greatly impressed by the highly professional approach he took to mountain guiding. I’m very happy to report that in 2014 nothing has changed. Sappa continues to maintain an exceptionally high standard of service and this together with his warm, generous and engaging personality ensured everyone in our party had an amazing time during their visit to Nepal.

We were treated to fantastic traditional Nepalese food and cultural performances at welcoming and farewell dinners in Kathmandu; expertly and safely guided over 14 days of trekking through an incredibly beautiful landscape; and provided with detailed and knowledgeable commentary during our tours of all the main sites around Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan. I’m very happy to report that the organisation of our transport, sightseeing, accommodation and trekking arrangements was first rate and that over three weeks everything ran very smoothly indeed. Overall, Sappa‘s vast guiding experience and mountain knowledge ensured that our itinerary was structured in such a way that it provided us with a good deal of flexibility and ample time to absorb the magnificent mountain views while trekking, as well as not being rushed on our tours of Kathmandu and surrounds.

On this trip, a few in our party were first time trekkers. What a fantastic introduction to trekking in the Nepal Himalaya they received thanks to the great care and attention to every little detail provided by Sappa and his fabulous support crew Manoj, Shankar and Suraj. Thank you Sappa,for also keeping up the tradition of supplying us with bananas and chocolate bars. I must also mention that the pomegranate seeds the crew provided to us on our way to Langtang was an unexpected but greatly appreciated treat. Importantly, from a safety aspect, we were more than pleased to find that Nepal Base Camp Treks used modern four wheel drive vehicles to take us to the start of our trek in Syabrubesi and also for the return journey from Dhunche. We were also very impressed to observe that Sappa and his company take very good care of their support crews.

If you are planning to visit Nepal, I have no hesitation in recommending Sappa and his company “Nepal Base Camp Treks” for trouble free trekking and touring. You will not be disappointed. I can’t wait for my next trek with Sappa, which will be around Manaslu trek.

German Language: Wir haben mit Sappa und einem Träger im Mai 2011 eine elftägige Trekking Tour durch die Langtang und Helambu Region gemacht. Wir sind das Langtang Tal von Syrabrubesi bis Kanjin Gompa hoch gewandert und dann über die Gosainkunde Seen, den Laurebina Pass und die Helambu Region nach Kathmandu zurückgekehrt. Der Trek war einfach wundervoll! Er führt durch verschiedene Vegetationszonen mit reicher Flora und Fauna und überwältigenden Aussichten auf die Gipfel des Himalaya. Darüber hinaus bot der Trek einen tiefen Einblick die die Tamang Kultur und das Leben und die Tradition der nepalesischen und tibetanischen Bevölkerung.

Sappa ist ein sehr erfahrener Führer, der die Gegend sehr gut kennt. Er verstand es perfekt, die Länge der täglichen Etappen und die Trekkinggeschwindigkeit auf unsere Wünsche und Bedürfnisse anzupassen und war insbesondere ein guter Ratgeber bei Fragen zur Höhenkrankheit. Sappa hat sich um alle Angelegenheiten mit den Lodges, den örtlichen Behörden, den Taxi- und Busfahrern etc. gekümmert. Er hat alle unsere Fragen zu den verschiedenen Bergketten und -gipfeln zur Länge der Auf- und Abstiege und zu den anderen Details der Gegend bereitwillig und mit großer Begeisterung beantwortet. Es war eine große Freude, ihm bei den Anekdoten aus dem Leben der Nepalesen, der Religion, Politik und Natur zuzuhören. Mit seiner Begeisterung und seinem Humor hat Sappa den Trek zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis gemacht. Wir können Sappa als erfahrenen, verständnisvollen und sympathischen Führer uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Nach den elf Tagen in der Einsamkeit des Himalaya ist aus unserem Führer ein Freund geworden.”

Sappa é o cara. Visitei o Nepal em duas ocasiões. Na primeira ele foi meu guia no circuito Annapurna, onde caminhamos por 21 dias. Na segunda ele nos guiou nos treks Langtang, Gosainkunda e Helambu por 17 dias. Alem disso, ele foi nosso guia no trek Cheppang Hills. Como se não bastasse, fizemos também o clássico Base Camp Everest partindo de Jiri e passando por Renjo La e Cho La, em 24 dias com o seu irmão Lako. O Nepal é um pais maravilhoso e a companhia de um guia como Sappa fez toda a diferença, pois ele nos explicou muito sobre a cultura local, religião, situação política/conflitos no pais e como funciona a sociedade no Nepal em geral. Ele fala muito bem inglês, é muito bem humorado e as risadas estão garantidas. Pra resumir, você começa a trilha com um guia e termina com um amigo. Recomendo-o sem hesitar. Se tiver perguntas pode me escrever.
