Overview

5,364m Everest base camp trek goes through a legendary route where the landscapes & welcoming Sherpa’s touch your soul. So, hike between giants & test your mental strength as you view high mountain lakes & milky rivers. Likewise, you will also see lovely green valley’s loaded with purple blossoms if your trip to Nepal is in spring. Life is about moments. Create them, don’t wait for them. There’s never a dull moment on the Everest base camp trek…

Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal is one of the hottest destinations for adventure anywhere on earth. In other words, it’s dreaming big when you book an Everest base camp trek. This is one of those trips that give meaning to your holiday dreams in the sunshine. For example, hiking on the legendary foothills just below the mighty mountains brings you closer to the world’s super peaks. That can only be the king of all peaks – Mt. Everest. The breathtaking views of the master peaks are only in the Everest Region.

Furthermore, this exciting trek is popular worldwide for its trailblazing routes & awesome landscapes. Nature hereabouts stirs your heart with a special joy. We put in much planning before you do this trip. Our plan includes enough acclimatizing because of the Everest base camp trek altitude. We encourage you to walk at a pace that is comfortable for your body’s needs.

Everest Base Camp Trek is all about self discovery…

We leave behind the comforts of our hotel in Kathmandu & take a fairytale flight to Lukla. At Lukla, we meet up with our friendly trekking team & hit the trails. We hike by the banks of the Dudh Kosi River through welcoming pretty Sherpa villages. After crossing several airy swing bridges, we walk into the bustling capital of Namche bazaar.

Our Everest base camp trek itinerary gives you enough time to acclimatize in this town. Namche sits within the Sagarmatha National Park, & is the capital of the Khumbu. Likewise, this is a natural spot to get familiar with the thin air at higher levels. Notwithstanding the great views in this area, we also visit the famous Tengboche monastery. This is the largest monastery in the region. There is so much we get to enjoy here. These mountains teach us a lot about life & ourselves.

Famous climbers use the trails we now walk by to summit Everest. Some made it, some did not. However, these same trails offer us so much of unforgettable beauty. The trek is difficult but many cozy teahouses on these trails offer good food. The warm beds shelter us from unkind weather.

We walk deep into the Khumbu, into forests of rhododendron, birch trees & pine. On the way, we come across colorful villages where we enjoy a sincere welcome by the local Sherpa people. We finally arrive at base camp, the main reason for our trip. The next day we climb up to Kalapatthar at 5,545m for a stunning early morning sunrise. The views from here are simply mind-blowing, leaving us breathless for a while!
This is where our trip ends as we head back to Kathmandu via Namche to Lukla for our flight.

Are you cut out for this trip?

Why shouldn’t you be so? You don’t need any technical experience for this great adventure.
What you do need is some good walking habits of about 3-4 hours a day.

Walking up the stairs to the 6th-7th floor of your building everyday would be ideal. You must be physically fit. This trek is fairly hard to difficult. But it can be done by anyone, from the young to the aged. This trek can even be done by greenhorns. You spend 11-12 days on the trail each day. Your max hiking time on the trails is 8 hours to a min of 3 hours uphill & downhill. While trekking you go higher by 400 to 800 meters each day. The highest point you must get to is 5,545m at Kala Patthar to view some of the best scenery on earth.

The route is overall gentle on your body with some steep areas & some downhill hikes. You must hike through pretty rough gravel paths. There’s no need to worry about any technical moves, just go easy & hike to your pace. You will love it when you stop for your meals & some rest at the local mountain lodges. This is an adventure in the wild. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.

Swayambhunath stupaToday is the day to explore the cultural, religious, and historical sites of Kathmandu valley. Out of the seven, you will visit four UNESCO world heritage sites. They are Pashupatinath temple, Swyambhunath (also known as the monkey temple), Boudhanath Stupa, and Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Kathmandu is the heart of Nepal for its ancient history and culture. It is a well-known destination for both international and domestic tourists. The city is a marvelous amalgamation of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Western cultural influences. It has a rich historical, cultural, and religious legacy. This entire legacy is reflected in many temples, monuments, and artifacts that it contains.

Have your hot breakfast at the hotel. You will be taken on a full-day guided sightseeing tour of Kathmandu valley. Your city tour guide will pick you up from the hotel at 9’o clock in the morning. He has core information about all the related heritage sites that you are going to visit.

You will begin your tour from Swyambhunath stupa and Kathmandu Durbar Square. Thereafter, discover the most famous and revered Hindu shrine ‘Pashupatinath temple. And the largest Buddhist stupa in south Asia- the Boudhanath stupa, contains both Buddhist and Hindu shrines. It stands as testimony to the religious harmony that exists in the country.

Kathmandu durbar square is located at the heart of the bustling city. It is one of three old Durbar Squares (royal palace) inside the valley. It is also known as the Basantapur or Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square. The Royal Palace is full of temples and ancient buildings that are dedicated to Hindu gods. Hence, it is a prime attraction for first-time visitors with its intricate wood carvings and rich history.

Pashupatinath Temple is one of the sacred Hindu temples of Nepal dedicated to an incarnation of the Hindu god Shiva. The holiest temple of Hindus is situated on both banks of the Bagmati river on the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu. It is also known as the “temple of living beings” that stands as a symbol of faith, religion, culture, and tradition. The shrine is famous for its awe-inspiring and notable pagoda architecture. The main temple of Pashupatinath is a building with a bunk roof and a gold spire. Every year, this holy place attracts thousands of elderly followers of Hinduism to pay respect and seek blessings from Lord Shiva. It is a temple with a special atmosphere of death. Death is present in almost every ritual and every corner of it.

Boudhanath Stupa is also known as “Boudhanath Khasti Chaitya” and “Khasa Chaitya ”. Located about 11km from the center and northeastern boundaries of Kathmandu, Nepal. The Stupa is a semicircle-shaped structure. It is built by a Tibetan King around 600 AD to reflect the cosmological beliefs of Buddhism. Towering over the surrounding town is a giant Mandala of peace and beauty.

Swayambhunath Stupa or Chaitya is also known as a “Monkey Temple”. The stupa has stood as a symbol of belief and harmony for decades, with the Hindu temple and goddess interwoven into Buddhist sites. It represents the Buddha’s mind. And it offers peace, freedom, and joy to the whole world and ultimately helps us to obtain enlightenment. Swayambhunath is located on the highest point of a twin-peaked hill rising in the Kathmandu Valley. Climbing up the hill’s eastern side’s long row of steps and ascending the final section of stairs. You can overlook the panoramic view of the Kathmandu valley from the hilltop.

After a full-day sightseeing tour, you will be transferred to the hotel. An orientation session for the trek, which commences the following day will be organized in the evening. If necessary, you can buy the remaining trekking equipment around Thamel.

Getting ready for Lukla flight

Getting ready for Lukla’s flight

Today is the most exciting day as you are going to begin your real adventure journey onwards.

Mostly, the weather in the mountain regions is pleasant in the morning. Thus, your trekking guide will pick you up from the hotel early in the morning as the mountain flights are operating for the morning to ensure that you will be able to land at Lukla.

A 35-minute thrilling scenic flight to Lukla and a landing on a steep mountain runway bring us to the start of our trek at the village of Lukla [2,846m]. If weather permits during the flight, you will have breathtaking views of the snow-capped Himalayas from the windows of your twin-otter (small plane).

After landing at the small Lukla airport, take a short tea break and meet our porters (if porters include in your package). Then, commence your trek with a gradual walk through the beautiful alpine forest along the Dudh Koshi River with the distant views of Mount Khumbila from Cheplung village. Along the way, you will also cross a suspension bridge that will add some thrill to your journey. This is your first day in the mountain region, stay overnight at a local tea house in Phakding at an altitude of 2,610m. Have enough rest as you have to walk a long day tomorrow.

To acclimatize, you visit Khunde Hospital set up by Sir Edmund Hillary, or take a one-hour walk up to the Everest View Hotel above Namche for the sunset view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Everest. We then go to Khumjung where we visit a school established by Hillary.

We begin our hike after enjoying lunch; bypassing the route of Khimde. There are also good views from the National Park Centre and Museum just above the town. After going through our acclimatization drills, we head down to our lodge for some beers & good sleep.

The path eventually reaches Sanasa which is the major trail junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp.

The track then follows through the pine forests and after we cross the prayer flags festooned bridge over Dudh Kosi River, we reach Phunki Tenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post amidst the alpine woods. After having a relaxed lunch at Phunki Tenga we then have a little tough climb steep up through the pine forests while before we reach Tengboche.

We descend downhill through a forest, cross the Imja Khola and climb steadily to the village of Pangboche. This place is one of the best points to capture the striking views of Mt. Ama Dablam 6,812 meters (22,349 ft).

The trail further leads along the glacial river until we arrive at today’s destination, Dingboche. En route, we will be passing through various small villages, prayer flags, mani walls, Chorterns, and prayer wheels.

Dingboche is situated at an altitude of 4,410 meters, where trekkers begin feeling the detrimental outcomes of excessive altitude. Drinking plenty of hot fluids will keep your body hydrated. Hence, we suggest you drink water, tea, coffee, and soups adequately. Additionally, walk easily, ascent slowly, and take a rest.

Besides the flights, we have a 98% success rate on this trek. Our 12 days hiking itinerary includes enough 2 days for acclimatization.

All of our guides have a wealth of knowledge. They are aware of any potential medical emergencies or crises that could occur while on the journey. Local guides are prepared to tackle any tragedy since they have had rigorous first aid training.

There are health posts run by local and international doctors for any minor ailments.

In case of an emergency, the guides are qualified to deliver the First-Aid service. If required, you will transfer to the nearby hospitals. Or, in case of an emergency, you will request an immediate airlift to Kathmandu.

When there are serious problems of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), our guides give Diamox. And immediately take the patient to a lower elevation.

In case of a severe illness or any casualties, we’ll do everything to move on to the closest hospital to save your life (that has happened to us a few times). And you’re utterly accountable for all the expenses incurred in evacuation/rescue. Therefore, please be certain these costs are covered by your insurance coverage before assigning to the trek. Or even be ready to pay your own after returning to Kathmandu. So make sure that you’ve fully insured which can cover helicopter rescue expenses before performing the excursion.

We highly recommend you book your trip a few months in advance. We will need to reserve your flights to Lukla earlier. Especially during the peak trekking season, when there is a large number of trekkers. However, if you arrive and want to organize your trip we can also arrange Last MINUTE BOOKINGS !!! The earliest is best for us.

It is not necessary to invest a great deal of money buying gear for your Everest Base Camp Trek in your country. As the majority of those gears can be purchased at reasonable prices in Kathmandu. Besides, we are happy to provide you with trekking poles, sleeping bags, and rain protection duffel bags for the trek. (No charge, to be returned).

In our given EBC trek package, we provide luxurious 3-star standard hotels in Kathmandu. Such as Hotel Thamel Park, Kathmandu Eco Hotel, etc.
However, we will reserve the above standard with an extra cost or budget hotels as per your desire. You just need to tell us your requirement.

You will spend your nights at the common local Teahouse or lodges during your EBC trek. It is the classic form of trekking accommodation on the trail. All are set and operated by local villagers. And provide you with basic yet optimal facilities like comfortable rooms, and westernized washrooms with WIFI service. While at dinner, you can also meet other interesting people from different nationalities with their exciting stories.

Besides the tea house’s accommodation, there are also a number of luxury hotels available on the Everest base camp trail. It can be managed at an extra cost.

While both vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods are available for meals that are hygienic as well as healthy. You can order your favorites as per the menu of the teahouse/lodge. On the lower elevations, you can taste a wider variety of dishes like Nepali, Indian, Continental, Chinese, etc. While Tea, coffee, eggs, bakery items, snacks, bars, etc can easily be found on your trek.

 

In the initial days, it was difficult for the trekkers to take shower and wash clothes. But these days there are certain laundry and showers facilities made possible for the trekkers. You will get gas geyser for a hot shower in the bathroom at most of the places. Hot shower facilities are available for trekkers till to Gorakshep village, close to Everest Base Camp. Some lodges also provide you with hot water in a bucket.

Trekkers are required to pay for a hot shower that ranges from USD $2 to 4 per use. The cost of a hot shower increases accordingly with the increase in height of the place. Trekkers mostly have their own quick-drying towels for use. In case you don’t have one, lodges provide you with towels upon request.

Tea houses and Lodges provide hot showers and laundry services on Everest Base Camp Trek. Laundry facilities are available till Namche Bazaar which costs USD $1 to 3 or Nepalese Currency Rs 100-300 per piece, according to the size of the cloth. Hot showers facilities are available in each and every lodge during EBC Trek in Nepal.

Generally, the flights connecting Kathmandu and Lukla are reliable.
However, it can be delayed for some hours or even be canceled for the whole day due to the inclement weather. If your flight is canceled, we will promptly reschedule for the next day’s flight. We may also be able to provide a choice for a privately chartered helicopter.

If you choose to take the helicopter service, this will cost an extra $500 or more. Prices are depending upon the group size and availability.
Additional Hotel nights and meals in Kathmandu are not covered in the package during flight delays. Although, we will make arrangements for our clients. Further, you are responsible for extra hotel accommodation and meals in case of flight cancelation.

Therefore, we strongly suggest our clients add at least 2 or 3 extra days to the end of your trip. This will give you some flexibility in the case of any interruptions so that you will not have to miss your international flight.

Basically, the weight limit on flights to Lukla from Kathmandu is 15 kg total- checked in and carry on.

This also holds true for every mountain airports like Phaplu, Simikot, Jomsom, etc

Some prior trekking experiences are beneficial. However, any novice or experienced trekker with moderate fitness should be able to complete the trek.

For those who are used to hiking long distances with a weighted backpack, they might find the trek easy.

Furthermore, those who don’t have any such experiences can try jogging, sprinting, swimming, and exercising a few weeks before trekking. It helps to boost your endurance level and also brings your body in proper shape condition. Hike around nearby places, and focus on building your strength. The trek is challenging but rewarding in every way. With a sort of training and determination, you can conquer the trek. Tick it off your bucket list.

Hiring a professional licensed guide will add more trekking experience. Some of the ways that having a guide will benefit you are:

1. Lead or suggest the best trails to take.
2. Manage all your permits and flights.
3. Recommend the best spots to rest, eat at, and stay overnight.
4. Monitor your health regularly.
5. Provide first aid treatment in case of emergencies.
6. Assist you to communicate with the locals.
7. Get the latest updates on the weather conditions of the trails.
8. Provide you information on the surroundings such as the names of the mountains/peaks, their height, plus Local names.
9. Give information on the culture, flora and fauna of the region, and some interesting stories.

Besides, having a guide is also having a friend and a guardian who is always there to look after you. You don’t have to focus on making lots of decisions while on the trek and make the most of your trip. Moreover, you are employing someone and also contributing to a local economy.

As a porter carries the bags for two clients, the maximum suggested load for a porter is 30kg, which means 15kg per client. It does not matter a bit less or extra weight.

However, this is more of a limit than a plan, as 30 kg is quite heavy for a single person to carry. Besides, he also requires to carry his own bag. So you should thoughtfully decide what you intend to bring on the trek with you. It is a helpful idea to make a single bag between 2 of you.

The hotels and Lodges will also offer the service of a luggage storeroom so you may leave any non-required items of clothing, footwear, and personal items in a spare bag with them.

The VISA process to Nepal is very quick and easy. All Visitors (except Indian nationals) are required a Valid Visa to access into Nepal. You can easily obtain a VISA upon arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport, or at any Nepal entrance borders of India or China. The citizens of China, member countries of SAARC, and the children under 10(except the US) will get a free Visa (Gratis Visa).

For Visa Application, you will require a passport (with at least 6 months until expiration) and one passport-size photo. The current visa cost for 15 and 30 days is USD 30 and 50 (To be paid only on Cash), although you can also pay the equivalent amount by other currencies (no Indian currency). You can also easily extend your Visa from Kathmandu or Pokhara.

Countries not entitled to get an arrival visa are Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Swaziland, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Iraq, Cameroon, and Palestine. If you are from the above countries please contact your nearby diplomatic missions (Embassies/consulates) of the Nepal Government. We recommend scheduling your trip at least 1-2 days extra in the case of delays. We will arrange additional activities if no delay occurs.

Please be advised to check the current regulation for a more detailed and recent update.

1 USD=~120 Nepali Rupees (NPR/Rs.)
You can exchange most of the foreign currency through local Banks or Money Exchanges in Kathmandu, and all-around Thamel …. READ MORE.

Yes, recharge facilities are available during your trek. Electricity is obtained via solar panels in the Everest Region. You can charge your electronic gadgets at any teahouses or lodges. Plus, this will cost you an extra NPR 200-300 per hour.

It is beneficial to bring a universal travel adapter. We recommend our clients to bring a solar charger and power banks on their trip.

It’s a great thing to be “connected” with your loved ones. The Internet is the most popular means of communication used by most of the trekkers. Use Viber, WhatsApp, Skype, or facetime where you can call. Though the internet speed experience during your trek may not be as fast as in the city areas cause the farther up the height you get, the slower, less reliable, and more expensive these service becomes. Your Hotels in the cities will provide free WIFI, but the lodges and tea-houses on the trek will charge an extra 1 to 2 Dollars per day.

Most of the routes have mobile coverage, though the service may still not be reliable.
This will also depend upon the type of network SIM you use and will cost you a fair bit of money to keep using it. Though some days at a higher altitude, the mobile network is not reachable. Upon your request, we will provide you with a local SIM card.

In case of emergencies, your emergency contacts and information will be with us before you leave for the trek.

We have spent years refining our services and packages and helped make dreams come true of hundreds of trekkers by guiding them to the roof of the world, creating memories that last lifelong.

In praise to our dedication to becoming the best trekking agency in Nepal, we’ve been honored with the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and also awarded the “2020 Travelers Choice Award”, a feat given to agencies for providing outstanding service and customer care.

With our devoted team working around the clock to render quality services 24 hrs/day, we’ve gained the support of numerous returning customers. You can also read the ratings and views written by travelers from around the world on our trip advisor page.

Our qualified guides are supported by a network of experts who will guarantee the best services during the trek. Every client is accompanied by our certified, highly professional, first aid trained, and experienced team of leaders, who are trained and experienced to handle every situation in all the years gone by.

And while we specifically design our trips to maximize the value of every dollar and time you spend, our prices are arguably some of the best in our country and are planned in ways to make prices affordable to our clients. But we’ll never compromise when it comes to quality and your travel experience with GHT.

Also, we offer a tailor-made trip to our customers to plan the itinerary as per their preference.

All in all, your safety and satisfaction is our foremost priority, and with cheerful dispositions and expert advice, our expert team will help you to make the most of your journey, every step of the way.

Let us show you rightly why we’re the best operator in Nepal!

Generally, Nepal is safe a country for solo women travelers. Also, Nepal is much safer than other South-Asian countries like India, and Bangladesh. The country holds 76th rank for the safest country out of 163 nations worldwide, and also is the 3rd safest in South Asia next to Bhutan and Srilanka.

There is a popular belief in the Nepali culture saying “The guests are gods”, and people are always welcoming you by hearts. However, women should still be cautious and traveling solo is not advisable in the trekking routes of Nepal, especially in the remote destinations, where you could face many problems during the trek.

Yes, you will require a valid passport, a tourist Visa, 2 photographs (passport-sized) for trekking permits, and necessary travel insurance for this trek.

We also operate several group-joining trips with fixed departure dates, so if you are a solo traveler and we welcome you to join in with our group. In case there are no other travelers or an insufficient number of people on the dates you have booked, we will still run your trip.

Absolutely! We organize group treks as well as private treks. We will plan and customize your trip according to your requirements and preferences. You can choose your activities, style of accommodations, and destinations. We can add or deduct the number of days on our itineraries. Also, for the private trips, we can arrange guaranteed departure dates all year round.

AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) Signs:

Headache, often with loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, dizziness, disturbed sleep.

What to do if you have AMS signs?

Stay at height for 1-3 days for acclimatization. If you still feel uncomfortable descend and use Diamox (250mg every 12 hours).

HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) Signs:

Severe headache, loss of balance/coordination, staggering, irrational behavior, confusion, drowsiness, coma, unconscious.

What to do if you have HACE signs?

  • DESCEND immediately, even at night at least 1000 meters with someone else, Gamow bag, oxygen, keep patient warm and use Diamox.

HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) Signs:

Breathless (Even at rest), dry cough/pink or rusty spit, blue lips/nails, very tired, low fever, gurgling breath, drowsy.

What to do if you have HAPE signs?

  • DESCEND immediately, even at night at least 1000 meters with someone else, Gamow bag, oxygen, keep patient warm and use Diamox.

Prevention:

Ascend slow, don’t exert yourself, eat high carbohydrate foods, drink lots of water (better hot water), garlic soup. Avoid alcohol, smoking, and caffeine.

Of course, you can book the Everest base camp with your kids. But it requires a travel permit including Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Permit and Sagarmatha National Park. EBC is not only a top destination for adult travelers. It is also an adventurous and fantastic place for families to fulfill their bucket lists to make an unforgettable memory.

While the trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC) with kids can get to learn about different cultures, nature, and traditions. For your children’s safety, it’s crucial to follow a few guidelines while trekking to EBC. If your kid is under 6 years old then we are not advised to bring them on the trip. Because it is an extremely high-altitude trek and kids will be in distress instead of enjoying it. But, we will guide you on how to enjoy the breathtaking view and beauty of the world’s highest Mount Everest by taking your kids.

On our crafted itinerary, there is a total of 11 days hike from Lukla to Lukla. Therefore, the overall length of this trek is 130km. Every day you have to walk about 5-7 hours through the rocky and snowy terrain.

The trail of the trek is gradual ups, down, and sometimes plane land. Trekking to EBC is quite strenuous for beginners as you have to walk about 12-15 km each day for 11 days.

One of the most well-known journeys in the world is to Everest Base Camp. The peak seasons, which go from late September to November and March to early May, are filled with hikers every day. Planning your vacation beyond the busiest months can help you escape the overcrowding on the route. If you want to escape from the crowd, the best times to trek are at the beginning of September, December, late February, and the end of May.

Unfortunately, overnight stays at Everest Base Camp are not allowed for hikers. Government officials only allow Everest summiteers to spend the night at EBC. You must get an expensive Everest climbing permit in order to spend the night at the Base Camp. As a result, trekkers are only permitted to visit Everest base camp. However, you will visit Everest base camp and spend the night at Gorakshep (5,164m).

Yes, you can leave your extra luggage in Kathmandu that you would not need for the hike. You will receive the luggage tag from our hotel representative in Kathmandu before starting your journey. Your additional items will be carefully stored at our hotel. Our office representative will deliver all of your stored bags to your hotel after you return safely from the trek.

South side of Everest Base Camp: The territory around Everest can only be reached by road from Kathmandu up to Tham Danda. To get to Everest Base Camp, you have to hike for an additional 8 to 10 days. Consequently, it is not possible to take a drive from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp. The South side of the Everest Base Camp Trail is more well-liked by hikers than the China Side.

North side of Everest Base Camp: From Tibet’s side, there is a fine road that leads to Everest Base Camp. From Lhasa, Tibet, you may easily get to Everest Base Camp.

Everest Base Camp has two sides: a north side and a south side. So, it depends on which side you are visiting Everest Base Camp. From the southern side of Nepal, you cannot see Mount Everest’s top. Instead, you can view Nuptse and the Khumbu Ice falls in large part from base camp. Everest’s summit is really obscured from view. Therefore, for a better view of Mount Everest and other numerous peaks, trekkers hike to Kalapather (5,545m). And we have included the Kalapather visit in our itinerary.

But, if you travel to Everest’s northern side from Tibet, you can see the breathtaking views of Everest. It is possible to travel to the base camp on the Tibetan side as part of an overland tour or as part of the hike to the advanced base camp, which is at a height of 6400 meters.

If you wish to go hiking in the spring (March to May) or fall (September to November), you do not require crampons or any other climbing equipment. However, if you are trekking in January or February during the winter season, it is advisable to carry crampons or microspikes with you. It will be challenging to trek on a snowy route without crampons. There’s a chance that snow will cover the paths then. Please be aware that having a pair of good hiking boots may increase your enjoyment of the activity.

A minimum of 12 days is required for a safe Everest base camp trek starting and ending at Kathmandu. You will have two enough days to acclimatize at Namche and Dingboche throughout these 12 days. It takes 8 days to reach the base camp from Kathmandu including 2 acclimatization days. And within 4 days you will return to Kathmandu from Everest Base Camp. To make it happen, you may engage in regular exercise or cardio at least 4 to 8 weeks before this excursion.

On this trek, about 95% of the local teahouses offer hot shower facilities that are available at an additional cost. And all the cold water is heated by solar power for the hot shower.  Therefore, hot showers are unavailable during the rainy season or on gloomy days. We thus advise you to carry wet wipes in case hot showers are not possible. The cost of a hot shower varies depending on the amenities and elevation. On this EBC trek, you can get better hot shower facilities at Lukla, Phakding, and Namche. For each hot shower, teahouses typically charge between the $2 to $4. The price will then increase with elevation and range from $4 to $8.

Regarding the laundry service for the EBC trip, Namche Bazar and Lukla are the only places where you can find it. Due to the unavailability of high voltage electricity above Namche, laundry service is not possible in every place. And laundry is excessively expensive in Namche & Lukla. Bring adequate clothing for the 11-day journey, and it is best to clean your clothes in Kathmandu after the trek.

This is another concern topic for the trekkers while planning the EBC journey. Every year, thousands of trekkers traveled to the Everest base camp. And 90% of them succeed in completing their journey without any issues. About 10% of travelers are not able to complete the trek because of their health issues. Therefore, it is often risk-free and doable for all hikers. There is no risk of avalanches and landslides on this trek. Travelers have given the tagline of a dangerous airport in the world for Lukla airport because of its inaccessible location. However, Lukla flights are also safer as well. In recent days, the trail to the Everest base camp is well constructed. During the peak season, it is filled with international travelers.

The most difficult aspect of this hike is likely altitude sickness. Thus, you must make the proper preparations before the expedition. Do some internet research or consult with Himalayan experts for advice on the right equipment, a well-prepared itinerary, and training beforehand. Our 12-day schedule includes adequate time for two days of acclimatization in Namche and Dingboche. You just need to be in good physical and mental health. Eat wisely, drink plenty of fluids and take enough rest during the trek.

Who doesn’t want to visit the world’s most popular destinations? Don’t you want to spend your hard-earned money by visiting worthwhile places on earth? Everyone wants to travel to European Alps, the Eifel tower in Paris, Argentina’s Patagonia, Niagara falls in Canada, and so on. Likewise, if you are a hiking enthusiast, you must have dreamed about Everest Base Camp Trek.

Consequently, every trekking lover put this epic journey on their travel bucket list. Mount Everest – 8848.86 meters is the tallest peak on the planet. And reaching the top of Mount Everest is not possible for every dreamer. But, if you are physically and mentally fit you can at least reach the base camp of Everest without investing millions of dollars. Backpackers from around the world have their dream to visit the entire trekking destination in the world. But it is not possible to visit each of the world’s hiking places in their lifetime. So, they make their travel plan according to the popularity of the places. And definitely, everyone wants to visit Everest Base Camp at least once in their lifetime.

Initially, you have to make a 20% deposit as an advance payment to confirm this trip with us. And remaining 80% should pay after your arrival in Kathmandu (before the trek). Once we received your advance payment, we will send you an e-receipt via email for your confirmation.
You can pay advance payments through bank transfers or western union. And for the remaining payment, we accept visa/master cards as well as cash. However, we always prefer remaining payments in cash as we have to send the cash with our guide to pay your food and accommodation bills throughout the trek.

Yes, indeed you need some additional cash on the trek. As you are aware, even if you purchase full board service from us, usages of the internet, hot showers, battery charging, cold beverages, beers, etc. in the mountain region are not included. Therefore, you can pay yourself at the teahouses along the trail for these extra services. It is the optional amenities. So, if you don’t want to use it, you don’t have to pay for it.

Normally, an additional $15-25 for each day is enough for your extra expenses.  However, you’ll need more extra cash if you want to drink beer or shop for items in the mountain.

We advise you to carry cash in local currency from Kathmandu. Because teahouses prefer to accept cash in Nepalese rupees. You can get local currency from the money exchange shop in Thamel or withdraw from ATMs. You can also find ATMs machines in Namche but it is not sure whether it works or not.

Tipping is not compulsory or even customary in Nepal, but it is a nice way to say thanks to your guides and porters. The wages of workers in Nepal are significantly less than the average income of other developed countries. Tourist guides and porters are employed only when tourist make their visit to Nepal. And the rest of the time, they won’t have a job. They need to make money during the tourist season to support their family till the next season. Therefore, all tourist guides and porters accept thanks or tips from visitors after their treks or tours. It’s also a great way to motivate them for their generous involvement in tourism in the years to come.

Even more, your gratitude will encourage them to work harder and serve better on their next trips.
In general, tip them at least 10% of your trip cost or USD 10 -12 per day for the guide and USD 7-9 for the porters. However, if you are satisfied and feel the staff did an excellent job, you can tip them more than the mentioned.

Below are the mountains that you can see while on the Everest Base Camp Trek. You can see all these mountains from different parts and viewpoints of this trek.

  1. Mt Everest (8,848m)
  2. Lhotse (8,516m)
  3. Lhotse Shar (8,382m)
  4. Makalu (8,485m)
  5. Cho Oyu (8,188m)
  6. Ama Dablam (6,814m)
  7. Pumori (7,165m)
  8. Nuptse (7,861m)
  9. Thamserku (6,618m)
  10. Kangtega (6,783m)
  11. Khumbila (5,765m)
  12. Nangkar Tshang (5,616m)
  13. Gonggila (5,808m)
  14. Hinku Himal (6,769m)
  15. Number (6,75m)
  16. Kondge (6,186m)
  17. Kusum Kangkaru (6,370m)
  18. Tabuche peak (6,495m)
  19. Cholatse (6,335m)
  20. Lobuche (6,135m)
  21. Nirekha Peak (6,159m)
  22. Changri (6,027m)
  23. Khumbu (6,859m)
  24. Khumbutshe (6,639m)

The highest sleeping point of this trek is 5,164 meters at Gorakshep and the lowest sleeping point of this trek is 2,650 meters which is Phakding.

There isn’t any age restriction for this hike. However, it is a strenuous hike at a high altitude that passes over mountains, rocky terrain through rivers, and alpine woods. Therefore, we advise anyone between the ages of 15 – 55 to take part in this walk. But, if you are a seasoned hiker in your 60s or 70s and in good physical shape, you can also participate in this activity and successfully complete the walk.

Actually, Lukla’s flights depend on the weather. Lukla airport is situated at an elevation above 2,800 meters and is surrounded by high hills and mountains. Therefore, it is tough to take land on the ground if the weather is inclement. In the months of March, April, May, October, November, and December flights won’t get canceled as the weather in these months are pleasant and clear. Mostly, Lukla flights get canceled in the monsoon months which are June, July, and August.

Fluids and water play a vital role to acclimatize your body with the high altitudes while you are on Himalayan treks. Therefore, it is necessary to consume at least 3-5 liters of water every day. This figure includes tea/coffee, milk, soups and bottled /boiled water. We suggest you drink water as much as you can only between breakfast and dinner time. You won’t get enough sleep at night if you drink a lot of water after dinner since you will need to use the restroom frequently.

Reviews

Incredible Everest base camp trek in December
By Henry and Suzane, France
December 26, 2022

It was an awesome Everest base camp trek in the month of December with the Glorious Himalaya. It was a bit cold in the month of December but the views were crystal clear and the flow of tourists was low. We couldn’t imagine the sunrise view from the Kalapather that we had experienced on this trek. If you are going on this trip don’t miss it.

Due to our limited time, we spent only 2 nights in Namche bazaar for acclimatization. After Namche, we continued the hike to Base camp without acclimatizing in Dingboche. Normally, trekkers stay two nights at Dingboche for better acclimatization but we skipped it due to our short holiday time.

Our guide Siva was superb and porter Anis was superhuman. Even at the high altitude, he carried our belongings easily. Hats up to your hard work man. Through this review, we would like to suggest all the trekkers who are hiring guides and porters, please make them happy by giving some tips at the end of the trek in Lukla as they work very hard in the high altitudes to make your trip successful.

In the end, we would like to thank Ganesh, who managed our EBC trek including our flights, accommodations, meals, guide and porter.

Good luck team and will visit Nepal again with your agency.

EBC – You must visit once in your lifetime
By Sean Paul, United States
December 18, 2022

Before we book this trip with Glorious Himalaya, we were in trouble choosing the best and most reliable local agency amongst the hundreds of tour companies in Nepal. And finally, we decided to go Everest base camp trek with this agency after we researched in many ways. Their instant response, reasonable price, a fair and ethical policy for looking after the porters and guides impressed us to book with them.

From the arrival to departure they managed all our hotel bookings, transfers and meals during our Nepal stay.

We had good times in the mountains during the trek. We did 12 days Everest base camp trek and 1 day sightseeing tour in Kathmandu. Our trekking guide Suman was exceptional and well-experienced. Though the weather was not clear at Kalapather however overall trip was great and well organized.  Thanks to our porters’ shiva, raju and dal. Without your support, it would not have been possible.

We are happy to recommend your agency to adventure seekers who are planning to visit Nepal for their holiday. Please go with this agency and we are sure you won’t be disappointed.

Best regards from,

Sean, Jordan, Michelle, Albert, Emma and Olivia

Great time in the Himalayas
By Sofie, Denmark
December 11, 2022

“It was my first time in Nepal having the Himalayan experience. My husband and I were planning to spend our holiday in Nepal for a long time, and also it was my longtime dream to trek to Himalaya and be in the mountains. We then finally decided to venture for both Gokyo and Everest Base Camp which later turned into a lifetime experience for us. Having completed this trek successfully with the help of the Glorious Himalaya Team, we had luck with the weather and everything went as per the plan. Despite the cold weather and physical challenges, we made it with the help of porters and our guide Roshan. We enjoyed every moment in the mountains and would like to thank the entire team of Glorious Himalaya for excellently organizing this trip for us. We will definitely be back to Nepal with our children shortly and recommend this trek to everyone!!!”

Base camp arrival was the best and first look of Everest! For future climbers a kind reminder that it is not easy and if it were easy everybody could do it. 🙂 As a sidenote, if you try to send post cards ask about buying post stamps upfront. Overall experience is fascinating.

Well done GHT!

I am a solo traveler from Germany and did the Everest Base Camp trek in December 2019 with GHT. From my arrival to the departure, everything was well planned and organized. Could not ask for more. Thanks to the entire team from GHT. Wouldn’t have been possible without them!

I found Glorious to be one of the most comprehensive companies when prepping you from the Everest base camp trek.

The package actually covers you from start to finish once you land in Kathmandu and fly out for there.

My guide Roshan made the effort to fulfil every single request that I have thrown to him, it’s not easy but he tries his best to ensure that I have the best experience possible and making this trip a dream come through, I’ll definitely look at glorious again If I am ever looking to do this again!

We wanted to do a shortened Everest Base Camp trek with our family (two kids of 13 and 9 years). We choose Glorious Himalaya Agency without knowing them before. We were not disappointed, on contrary, but impressed. Everything worked on time and as planned. The staff was friendly and extremely professional and helpful. Exceptional porters and guides, too. Next trekking? Only with them!

Lifetime experience that is etched in my memory forever and the hospitality and the services were equally great.

April 14, 2021

We recently did 12 days Everest base camp trek through the Glorious Himalaya team. The views and scenery were amazing throughout the trek.

In the first part, we were stuck in Kathmandu for 2 days due to the foggy and windy weather. On the 3rd day, we succeeded to fly to Lukla from where our trek begins. We trek via Phakding – Namche Bazar – Tengboche – Dingboche – Gorakshep and then to Everest Base camp, which is the main destination of our trip. The final hike from Gorakshep to Kalapather was a bit difficult and exhausting but the views were magnificent once we reached the top – 5555 meters above sea level. Even more, were stunned by the sunrise views.

Overall, our trip was amazing and worth every penny.
In the end, we would like to thanks all the trekking staff of Glorious Himalaya. Due to their assistance, we were able to complete this trek without any difficulties. Hence, we strongly recommend GHT team for any kind of Nepal tour. They are a highly experienced, reliable, and trustworthy company in Nepal.

GREAT EBC TREK !!!
By Leon Steiner, Austria
December 28, 2019

“I was on a trek on a group of 6 with Buddhi. He is a dynamic, energetic, and supportive guide. He always kept us motivated, continuously interacting with us on our health and conditions to make sure that we are coping well with the height. He was regularly asking if there are ways to make ourselves more comfortable. His abundance of experience as a trekking guide really made our trek easier. I highly recommend Buddhi and thank all the team members of Glorious for organizing the amazing experience we had on the EBC trek.”

BEST AGENCY IN NEPAL. PERIOD !
By Jenny, Canada
October 19, 2019
“Everest was phenomenal !!! Even if we did not had luck with the weather, we still enjoyed the trip. Bishal was the greatest guide in Nepal. He wouldn’t leave my side even though I was hours behind the main party. He even braved rafting the Trisuli River with us althoudh he did mention he would NEVER go rafting again. (doesn’t like getting tossed around and overboard on our raft)”

The guide Dakman and Porter Kumal were very helpful and knowledgeable about the mountains, granting me the best experience possible for EBC. I definitely recommend booking via this company!”
AMAZING COMPANY WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE AND FLEXIBILITY
By Amelie Chevrolet, France

“Glorious Himalaya gave us a competitive package and excellent service right from the first contact over email. Ganesh, who runs the company is very punctual, proficient, welcoming and has an excellent team. His expertise and guidance on the EBC trek supported us to finalize this grand trek in a remarkably short time.

The guide (Buddhi), porters and all the combinations throughout our trek were great. Buddhi was very humble and even played football with my young boys. He made sure we are happy and comfortable. The hotels and lodges arranged by Ganesh/Buddhi throughout the whole trek (Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Lukla) were really comfortable, well placed, neat and tidy with the delicacy of meals and service.

I would highly recommend Glorious Himalaya for trekking in Nepal.”AMAZING COMPANY WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE AND FLEXIBILITY

PERFECTLY ORGANIZED TRIP!!!
By Arnelle, United Kingdom
May 3, 2018

“Wonderfully Organized Ganesh and His Team!!!
Everything was very professional and perfectly planned.
It felt like more of a journey than a trip.

Our Local Guide Dakman knew much more than the rest of the guides and explained to us everything that we saw while on the trek. It was interesting that he knew every hotel and lodge owner. We couldn’t have completed this trip without his knowledge, experience, and guidance was perfect. He was continually asking about our health and comfort for the 12 days. With the fantastic guidance and care of Dakman, our amazing group of 9 reached EBC with only minimal effects from the altitude.

In General, I considered our Guide, Porters and Company was very professional and well experienced, responsible and caring all the way.

Thank you to Glorious, Dakman and all the Porters for a remarkable trip!”

Momentous Everest Base Camp Trek

June 11, 2014

I have on this Nepal trip with Glorious Himalaya Trekking team twice. This season (May 2014), I did Everest base camp trek with my family (Father / Husband / Son / Daughter) and it was a brilliant trip for us with the assist of GHT member. From our arrival in Kathmandu airport to the departure dates, company members take all the responsibility very well and we really like their way of traditionally welcome to the guest by “Namastee”.

Guide of this company is very experienced, skilled, knowledgeable and have ability to handle the critical situations. During this trip my father had some food poison problem but he get well with in two days because of our Guide “Chandra” guidance. He knows very well about the food poison treatment which is one of the most important part of the Himalayan guide. And our porters Ram and Guru was very helpful and smiley faces and friendly as well. We had lots of memorable moments during this trip with my family.

Well, me and my family members do not have hesitation to recommend this trekking company for your adventure holidays to my friends, relatives and the adventure travelers. And I can’t wait to organize my next trip with this company in near future.

Thanks !

“We successfully completed EBC Trek last October with the help of Ganesh and His Team.
The thrilling flight to Lukla was an adventure in itself.
The trek was challenging but rewarding in every way.
Standing on the lap of Everest was the most exciting and unique experience we’ve ever had.

Everything was well organized and the service could not have been better.
We can’t ask for more but only to thank them for our successful trip.
Thanks to our Guide, Porters, and the entire team for helping us complete this trek.
Our guide Ram was very professional, well informed and explained to us very well.
Accommodation and meals were very appreciated.

We carried wonderful memories flying back home and still miss the mountains!!!
See you on our more future trips to Nepal. I would definitely recommend this once in a lifetime trek to Everyone. Thank you! Ganesh and his team for organizing this trip”

Unforgettable EBC and Chola Pass Trek
By Karther Krams , Wildburgstr, Germany
April 15, 2011

Ktm-Lukla-Gokyo-Kalapathar-Base Camp-Lukla-Ktm. I did the typical tourists up hits at the famous Mt. Everest Trek in Solokhumbhu. The trek was scheduled for 17 days but we completed the trek in 15, because of good weather. It was really fun and exhausting at the same time. The highlight was not the Base Camp but the Chola Pass. (Bhes, my Guide was right saying that Base Camp is not worth visiting and Chola is the best) Bhes is a very experienced guide and a very friendly person. He actually made this trip a unique experience not only in terms of sportive action but also in cultural exchange. Thank you very much for this experience.

Overview

5,364m Everest base camp trek goes through a legendary route where the landscapes & welcoming Sherpa’s touch your soul. So, hike between giants & test your mental strength as you view high mountain lakes & milky rivers. Likewise, you will also see lovely green valley’s loaded with purple blossoms if your trip to Nepal is in spring. Life is about moments. Create them, don’t wait for them. There’s never a dull moment on the Everest base camp trek…

Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal is one of the hottest destinations for adventure anywhere on earth. In other words, it’s dreaming big when you book an Everest base camp trek. This is one of those trips that give meaning to your holiday dreams in the sunshine. For example, hiking on the legendary foothills just below the mighty mountains brings you closer to the world’s super peaks. That can only be the king of all peaks – Mt. Everest. The breathtaking views of the master peaks are only in the Everest Region.

Furthermore, this exciting trek is popular worldwide for its trailblazing routes & awesome landscapes. Nature hereabouts stirs your heart with a special joy. We put in much planning before you do this trip. Our plan includes enough acclimatizing because of the Everest base camp trek altitude. We encourage you to walk at a pace that is comfortable for your body’s needs.

Everest Base Camp Trek is all about self discovery…

We leave behind the comforts of our hotel in Kathmandu & take a fairytale flight to Lukla. At Lukla, we meet up with our friendly trekking team & hit the trails. We hike by the banks of the Dudh Kosi River through welcoming pretty Sherpa villages. After crossing several airy swing bridges, we walk into the bustling capital of Namche bazaar.

Our Everest base camp trek itinerary gives you enough time to acclimatize in this town. Namche sits within the Sagarmatha National Park, & is the capital of the Khumbu. Likewise, this is a natural spot to get familiar with the thin air at higher levels. Notwithstanding the great views in this area, we also visit the famous Tengboche monastery. This is the largest monastery in the region. There is so much we get to enjoy here. These mountains teach us a lot about life & ourselves.

Famous climbers use the trails we now walk by to summit Everest. Some made it, some did not. However, these same trails offer us so much of unforgettable beauty. The trek is difficult but many cozy teahouses on these trails offer good food. The warm beds shelter us from unkind weather.

We walk deep into the Khumbu, into forests of rhododendron, birch trees & pine. On the way, we come across colorful villages where we enjoy a sincere welcome by the local Sherpa people. We finally arrive at base camp, the main reason for our trip. The next day we climb up to Kalapatthar at 5,545m for a stunning early morning sunrise. The views from here are simply mind-blowing, leaving us breathless for a while!
This is where our trip ends as we head back to Kathmandu via Namche to Lukla for our flight.

Are you cut out for this trip?

Why shouldn’t you be so? You don’t need any technical experience for this great adventure.
What you do need is some good walking habits of about 3-4 hours a day.

Walking up the stairs to the 6th-7th floor of your building everyday would be ideal. You must be physically fit. This trek is fairly hard to difficult. But it can be done by anyone, from the young to the aged. This trek can even be done by greenhorns. You spend 11-12 days on the trail each day. Your max hiking time on the trails is 8 hours to a min of 3 hours uphill & downhill. While trekking you go higher by 400 to 800 meters each day. The highest point you must get to is 5,545m at Kala Patthar to view some of the best scenery on earth.

The route is overall gentle on your body with some steep areas & some downhill hikes. You must hike through pretty rough gravel paths. There’s no need to worry about any technical moves, just go easy & hike to your pace. You will love it when you stop for your meals & some rest at the local mountain lodges. This is an adventure in the wild. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.

Swayambhunath stupaToday is the day to explore the cultural, religious, and historical sites of Kathmandu valley. Out of the seven, you will visit four UNESCO world heritage sites. They are Pashupatinath temple, Swyambhunath (also known as the monkey temple), Boudhanath Stupa, and Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Kathmandu is the heart of Nepal for its ancient history and culture. It is a well-known destination for both international and domestic tourists. The city is a marvelous amalgamation of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Western cultural influences. It has a rich historical, cultural, and religious legacy. This entire legacy is reflected in many temples, monuments, and artifacts that it contains.

Have your hot breakfast at the hotel. You will be taken on a full-day guided sightseeing tour of Kathmandu valley. Your city tour guide will pick you up from the hotel at 9’o clock in the morning. He has core information about all the related heritage sites that you are going to visit.

You will begin your tour from Swyambhunath stupa and Kathmandu Durbar Square. Thereafter, discover the most famous and revered Hindu shrine ‘Pashupatinath temple. And the largest Buddhist stupa in south Asia- the Boudhanath stupa, contains both Buddhist and Hindu shrines. It stands as testimony to the religious harmony that exists in the country.

Kathmandu durbar square is located at the heart of the bustling city. It is one of three old Durbar Squares (royal palace) inside the valley. It is also known as the Basantapur or Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square. The Royal Palace is full of temples and ancient buildings that are dedicated to Hindu gods. Hence, it is a prime attraction for first-time visitors with its intricate wood carvings and rich history.

Pashupatinath Temple is one of the sacred Hindu temples of Nepal dedicated to an incarnation of the Hindu god Shiva. The holiest temple of Hindus is situated on both banks of the Bagmati river on the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu. It is also known as the “temple of living beings” that stands as a symbol of faith, religion, culture, and tradition. The shrine is famous for its awe-inspiring and notable pagoda architecture. The main temple of Pashupatinath is a building with a bunk roof and a gold spire. Every year, this holy place attracts thousands of elderly followers of Hinduism to pay respect and seek blessings from Lord Shiva. It is a temple with a special atmosphere of death. Death is present in almost every ritual and every corner of it.

Boudhanath Stupa is also known as “Boudhanath Khasti Chaitya” and “Khasa Chaitya ”. Located about 11km from the center and northeastern boundaries of Kathmandu, Nepal. The Stupa is a semicircle-shaped structure. It is built by a Tibetan King around 600 AD to reflect the cosmological beliefs of Buddhism. Towering over the surrounding town is a giant Mandala of peace and beauty.

Swayambhunath Stupa or Chaitya is also known as a “Monkey Temple”. The stupa has stood as a symbol of belief and harmony for decades, with the Hindu temple and goddess interwoven into Buddhist sites. It represents the Buddha’s mind. And it offers peace, freedom, and joy to the whole world and ultimately helps us to obtain enlightenment. Swayambhunath is located on the highest point of a twin-peaked hill rising in the Kathmandu Valley. Climbing up the hill’s eastern side’s long row of steps and ascending the final section of stairs. You can overlook the panoramic view of the Kathmandu valley from the hilltop.

After a full-day sightseeing tour, you will be transferred to the hotel. An orientation session for the trek, which commences the following day will be organized in the evening. If necessary, you can buy the remaining trekking equipment around Thamel.

Getting ready for Lukla flight

Getting ready for Lukla’s flight

Today is the most exciting day as you are going to begin your real adventure journey onwards.

Mostly, the weather in the mountain regions is pleasant in the morning. Thus, your trekking guide will pick you up from the hotel early in the morning as the mountain flights are operating for the morning to ensure that you will be able to land at Lukla.

A 35-minute thrilling scenic flight to Lukla and a landing on a steep mountain runway bring us to the start of our trek at the village of Lukla [2,846m]. If weather permits during the flight, you will have breathtaking views of the snow-capped Himalayas from the windows of your twin-otter (small plane).

After landing at the small Lukla airport, take a short tea break and meet our porters (if porters include in your package). Then, commence your trek with a gradual walk through the beautiful alpine forest along the Dudh Koshi River with the distant views of Mount Khumbila from Cheplung village. Along the way, you will also cross a suspension bridge that will add some thrill to your journey. This is your first day in the mountain region, stay overnight at a local tea house in Phakding at an altitude of 2,610m. Have enough rest as you have to walk a long day tomorrow.

We then take a steep hike to Namche Bazar. If the weather is clear, we get the first glimpse of Mt Everest. Namche is the main trading village in the Khumbu and has a busy Saturday market – a meeting place for the Hindus and Buddhists traders from the lowlands and the Tibetan yak caravans that have crossed the glaciated Nangpa La. Namche is the gateway to the Khumbu. This is where we crash out for the night.

To acclimatize, you visit Khunde Hospital set up by Sir Edmund Hillary, or take a one-hour walk up to the Everest View Hotel above Namche for the sunset view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Everest. We then go to Khumjung where we visit a school established by Hillary.

We begin our hike after enjoying lunch; bypassing the route of Khimde. There are also good views from the National Park Centre and Museum just above the town. After going through our acclimatization drills, we head down to our lodge for some beers & good sleep.

Our trek follows on the gradual trail with few ups and downs overlooking a magnificent view of the great Himalaya. Along the way, we can spot wild lives like pheasant, musk deer, or a herd of Himalayan Thar. The trail goes gradually down up to Kyangjuma. The path eventually reaches Sanasa which is the major trail junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp.

The track then follows through the pine forests and after we cross the prayer flags festooned bridge over Dudh Kosi River, we reach Phunki Tenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post amidst the alpine woods. After having a relaxed lunch at Phunki Tenga we then have a little tough climb steep up through the pine forests while before we reach Tengboche.

Tengboche is a great place for close up views of Ama-Dablam, Nuptse, and Everest and it has the biggest Buddhist Monastery all over in the Khumbu region. Overnight stay at the lodge in Tengboche.

Before leaving Tengboche, don’t miss capturing the stunning sunrise view over Ama Dablam. This will be one of the points of interest you will cherish for a lifetime.

After a hot breakfast, we will be following the route to Dingboche. Dingboche is one of the high-altitude Sherpa’s settlements in the Everest region. We descend downhill through a forest, cross the Imja Khola and climb steadily to the village of Pangboche. This place is one of the best points to capture the striking views of Mt. Ama Dablam 6,812 meters (22,349 ft).

The trail further leads along the glacial river until we arrive at today’s destination, Dingboche. En route, we will be passing through various small villages, prayer flags, mani walls, Chorterns, and prayer wheels.

Dingboche is situated at an altitude of 4,410 meters, where trekkers begin feeling the detrimental outcomes of excessive altitude. Drinking plenty of hot fluids will keep your body hydrated. Hence, we suggest you drink water, tea, coffee, and soups adequately. Additionally, walk easily, ascent slowly, and take a rest. In addition, hold your mindset positive and follow your leader’s advice. We bunk out for the night at Dingboche.

Yes, our office representative will be waiting to greet you at the airport. He will be holding the Glorious Himalaya placard with your name beneath. He will then transfer you to the hotel and help you to check-in. 

Also after your EBC trek, at the departure time, our office representative will arrive at your hotel three hours prior to your scheduled flight. After helping check out, he will drop you at the airport for your flight back home.

Since our company’s establishment, we have operated EBC trek for more than 700 groups. And the flights play a vital role in the Everest base camp trek, which is beyond our control.

Besides the flights, we have a 98% success rate on this trek. Our 12 days hiking itinerary includes enough 2 days for acclimatization.

All of our guides have a wealth of knowledge. They are aware of any potential medical emergencies or crises that could occur while on the journey. Local guides are prepared to tackle any tragedy since they have had rigorous first aid training.

There are health posts run by local and international doctors for any minor ailments.

In case of an emergency, the guides are qualified to deliver the First-Aid service. If required, you will transfer to the nearby hospitals. Or, in case of an emergency, you will request an immediate airlift to Kathmandu.

When there are serious problems of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), our guides give Diamox. And immediately take the patient to a lower elevation.

Since the initial costs of the rescue operation will need to be reimbursed by your insurance company or by using cash or credit. Which we have paid for them.

In case of a severe illness or any casualties, we’ll do everything to move on to the closest hospital to save your life (that has happened to us a few times). And you’re utterly accountable for all the expenses incurred in evacuation/rescue. Therefore, please be certain these costs are covered by your insurance coverage before assigning to the trek. Or even be ready to pay your own after returning to Kathmandu. So make sure that you’ve fully insured which can cover helicopter rescue expenses before performing the excursion.

We highly recommend you book your trip a few months in advance. We will need to reserve your flights to Lukla earlier. Especially during the peak trekking season, when there is a large number of trekkers. However, if you arrive and want to organize your trip we can also arrange Last MINUTE BOOKINGS !!! The earliest is best for us.

It is not necessary to invest a great deal of money buying gear for your Everest Base Camp Trek in your country. As the majority of those gears can be purchased at reasonable prices in Kathmandu. Besides, we are happy to provide you with trekking poles, sleeping bags, and rain protection duffel bags for the trek. (No charge, to be returned).

In our given EBC trek package, we provide luxurious 3-star standard hotels in Kathmandu. Such as Hotel Thamel Park, Kathmandu Eco Hotel, etc.
However, we will reserve the above standard with an extra cost or budget hotels as per your desire. You just need to tell us your requirement.

You will spend your nights at the common local Teahouse or lodges during your EBC trek. It is the classic form of trekking accommodation on the trail. All are set and operated by local villagers. And provide you with basic yet optimal facilities like comfortable rooms, and westernized washrooms with WIFI service. While at dinner, you can also meet other interesting people from different nationalities with their exciting stories.

Besides the tea house’s accommodation, there are also a number of luxury hotels available on the Everest base camp trail. It can be managed at an extra cost.

While both vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods are available for meals that are hygienic as well as healthy. You can order your favorites as per the menu of the teahouse/lodge. On the lower elevations, you can taste a wider variety of dishes like Nepali, Indian, Continental, Chinese, etc. While Tea, coffee, eggs, bakery items, snacks, bars, etc can easily be found on your trek.

 

In the initial days, it was difficult for the trekkers to take shower and wash clothes. But these days there are certain laundry and showers facilities made possible for the trekkers. You will get gas geyser for a hot shower in the bathroom at most of the places. Hot shower facilities are available for trekkers till to Gorakshep village, close to Everest Base Camp. Some lodges also provide you with hot water in a bucket.

Trekkers are required to pay for a hot shower that ranges from USD $2 to 4 per use. The cost of a hot shower increases accordingly with the increase in height of the place. Trekkers mostly have their own quick-drying towels for use. In case you don’t have one, lodges provide you with towels upon request.

Tea houses and Lodges provide hot showers and laundry services on Everest Base Camp Trek. Laundry facilities are available till Namche Bazaar which costs USD $1 to 3 or Nepalese Currency Rs 100-300 per piece, according to the size of the cloth. Hot showers facilities are available in each and every lodge during EBC Trek in Nepal.

Generally, the flights connecting Kathmandu and Lukla are reliable.
However, it can be delayed for some hours or even be canceled for the whole day due to the inclement weather. If your flight is canceled, we will promptly reschedule for the next day’s flight. We may also be able to provide a choice for a privately chartered helicopter.

If you choose to take the helicopter service, this will cost an extra $500 or more. Prices are depending upon the group size and availability.
Additional Hotel nights and meals in Kathmandu are not covered in the package during flight delays. Although, we will make arrangements for our clients. Further, you are responsible for extra hotel accommodation and meals in case of flight cancelation.

Therefore, we strongly suggest our clients add at least 2 or 3 extra days to the end of your trip. This will give you some flexibility in the case of any interruptions so that you will not have to miss your international flight.

Basically, the weight limit on flights to Lukla from Kathmandu is 15 kg total- checked in and carry on.

This also holds true for every mountain airports like Phaplu, Simikot, Jomsom, etc

Some prior trekking experiences are beneficial. However, any novice or experienced trekker with moderate fitness should be able to complete the trek.

For those who are used to hiking long distances with a weighted backpack, they might find the trek easy.

Furthermore, those who don’t have any such experiences can try jogging, sprinting, swimming, and exercising a few weeks before trekking. It helps to boost your endurance level and also brings your body in proper shape condition. Hike around nearby places, and focus on building your strength. The trek is challenging but rewarding in every way. With a sort of training and determination, you can conquer the trek. Tick it off your bucket list.

Hiring a professional licensed guide will add more trekking experience. Some of the ways that having a guide will benefit you are:

1. Lead or suggest the best trails to take.
2. Manage all your permits and flights.
3. Recommend the best spots to rest, eat at, and stay overnight.
4. Monitor your health regularly.
5. Provide first aid treatment in case of emergencies.
6. Assist you to communicate with the locals.
7. Get the latest updates on the weather conditions of the trails.
8. Provide you information on the surroundings such as the names of the mountains/peaks, their height, plus Local names.
9. Give information on the culture, flora and fauna of the region, and some interesting stories.

Besides, having a guide is also having a friend and a guardian who is always there to look after you. You don’t have to focus on making lots of decisions while on the trek and make the most of your trip. Moreover, you are employing someone and also contributing to a local economy.

As a porter carries the bags for two clients, the maximum suggested load for a porter is 30kg, which means 15kg per client. It does not matter a bit less or extra weight.

However, this is more of a limit than a plan, as 30 kg is quite heavy for a single person to carry. Besides, he also requires to carry his own bag. So you should thoughtfully decide what you intend to bring on the trek with you. It is a helpful idea to make a single bag between 2 of you.

The hotels and Lodges will also offer the service of a luggage storeroom so you may leave any non-required items of clothing, footwear, and personal items in a spare bag with them.

The VISA process to Nepal is very quick and easy. All Visitors (except Indian nationals) are required a Valid Visa to access into Nepal. You can easily obtain a VISA upon arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport, or at any Nepal entrance borders of India or China. The citizens of China, member countries of SAARC, and the children under 10(except the US) will get a free Visa (Gratis Visa).

For Visa Application, you will require a passport (with at least 6 months until expiration) and one passport-size photo. The current visa cost for 15 and 30 days is USD 30 and 50 (To be paid only on Cash), although you can also pay the equivalent amount by other currencies (no Indian currency). You can also easily extend your Visa from Kathmandu or Pokhara.

Countries not entitled to get an arrival visa are Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Swaziland, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Iraq, Cameroon, and Palestine. If you are from the above countries please contact your nearby diplomatic missions (Embassies/consulates) of the Nepal Government. We recommend scheduling your trip at least 1-2 days extra in the case of delays. We will arrange additional activities if no delay occurs.

Please be advised to check the current regulation for a more detailed and recent update.

1 USD=~120 Nepali Rupees (NPR/Rs.)
You can exchange most of the foreign currency through local Banks or Money Exchanges in Kathmandu, and all-around Thamel …. READ MORE.

Yes, recharge facilities are available during your trek. Electricity is obtained via solar panels in the Everest Region. You can charge your electronic gadgets at any teahouses or lodges. Plus, this will cost you an extra NPR 200-300 per hour.

It is beneficial to bring a universal travel adapter. We recommend our clients to bring a solar charger and power banks on their trip.

It’s a great thing to be “connected” with your loved ones. The Internet is the most popular means of communication used by most of the trekkers. Use Viber, WhatsApp, Skype, or facetime where you can call. Though the internet speed experience during your trek may not be as fast as in the city areas cause the farther up the height you get, the slower, less reliable, and more expensive these service becomes. Your Hotels in the cities will provide free WIFI, but the lodges and tea-houses on the trek will charge an extra 1 to 2 Dollars per day.

Most of the routes have mobile coverage, though the service may still not be reliable.
This will also depend upon the type of network SIM you use and will cost you a fair bit of money to keep using it. Though some days at a higher altitude, the mobile network is not reachable. Upon your request, we will provide you with a local SIM card.

In case of emergencies, your emergency contacts and information will be with us before you leave for the trek.

  4. Avoid Alcohol, Tobacco & Cigarettes.
  5. Do not spend too much time at high altitudes pass.
  6. Use proper Medications for AMS.

All in all, your safety and satisfaction is our foremost priority, and with cheerful dispositions and expert advice, our expert team will help you to make the most of your journey, every step of the way.

Let us show you rightly why we’re the best operator in Nepal!

Generally, Nepal is safe a country for solo women travelers. Also, Nepal is much safer than other South-Asian countries like India, and Bangladesh. The country holds 76th rank for the safest country out of 163 nations worldwide, and also is the 3rd safest in South Asia next to Bhutan and Srilanka.

There is a popular belief in the Nepali culture saying “The guests are gods”, and people are always welcoming you by hearts. However, women should still be cautious and traveling solo is not advisable in the trekking routes of Nepal, especially in the remote destinations, where you could face many problems during the trek.

Yes, you will require a valid passport, a tourist Visa, 2 photographs (passport-sized) for trekking permits, and necessary travel insurance for this trek.

We also operate several group-joining trips with fixed departure dates, so if you are a solo traveler and we welcome you to join in with our group. In case there are no other travelers or an insufficient number of people on the dates you have booked, we will still run your trip.

Absolutely! We organize group treks as well as private treks. We will plan and customize your trip according to your requirements and preferences. You can choose your activities, style of accommodations, and destinations. We can add or deduct the number of days on our itineraries. Also, for the private trips, we can arrange guaranteed departure dates all year round.

AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) Signs:

Headache, often with loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, dizziness, disturbed sleep.

What to do if you have AMS signs?

Stay at height for 1-3 days for acclimatization. If you still feel uncomfortable descend and use Diamox (250mg every 12 hours).

HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) Signs:

Severe headache, loss of balance/coordination, staggering, irrational behavior, confusion, drowsiness, coma, unconscious.

What to do if you have HACE signs?

  • DESCEND immediately, even at night at least 1000 meters with someone else, Gamow bag, oxygen, keep patient warm and use Diamox.

HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) Signs:

Breathless (Even at rest), dry cough/pink or rusty spit, blue lips/nails, very tired, low fever, gurgling breath, drowsy.

What to do if you have HAPE signs?

  • DESCEND immediately, even at night at least 1000 meters with someone else, Gamow bag, oxygen, keep patient warm and use Diamox.

Prevention:

Ascend slow, don’t exert yourself, eat high carbohydrate foods, drink lots of water (better hot water), garlic soup. Avoid alcohol, smoking, and caffeine.

Of course, you can book the Everest base camp with your kids. But it requires a travel permit including Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Permit and Sagarmatha National Park. EBC is not only a top destination for adult travelers. It is also an adventurous and fantastic place for families to fulfill their bucket lists to make an unforgettable memory.

While the trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC) with kids can get to learn about different cultures, nature, and traditions. For your children’s safety, it’s crucial to follow a few guidelines while trekking to EBC. If your kid is under 6 years old then we are not advised to bring them on the trip. Because it is an extremely high-altitude trek and kids will be in distress instead of enjoying it. But, we will guide you on how to enjoy the breathtaking view and beauty of the world’s highest Mount Everest by taking your kids.

On our crafted itinerary, there is a total of 11 days hike from Lukla to Lukla. Therefore, the overall length of this trek is 130km. Every day you have to walk about 5-7 hours through the rocky and snowy terrain.

The trail of the trek is gradual ups, down, and sometimes plane land. Trekking to EBC is quite strenuous for beginners as you have to walk about 12-15 km each day for 11 days.

One of the most well-known journeys in the world is to Everest Base Camp. The peak seasons, which go from late September to November and March to early May, are filled with hikers every day. Planning your vacation beyond the busiest months can help you escape the overcrowding on the route. If you want to escape from the crowd, the best times to trek are at the beginning of September, December, late February, and the end of May.

Unfortunately, overnight stays at Everest Base Camp are not allowed for hikers. Government officials only allow Everest summiteers to spend the night at EBC. You must get an expensive Everest climbing permit in order to spend the night at the Base Camp. As a result, trekkers are only permitted to visit Everest base camp. However, you will visit Everest base camp and spend the night at Gorakshep (5,164m).

Yes, you can leave your extra luggage in Kathmandu that you would not need for the hike. You will receive the luggage tag from our hotel representative in Kathmandu before starting your journey. Your additional items will be carefully stored at our hotel. Our office representative will deliver all of your stored bags to your hotel after you return safely from the trek.

South side of Everest Base Camp: The territory around Everest can only be reached by road from Kathmandu up to Tham Danda. To get to Everest Base Camp, you have to hike for an additional 8 to 10 days. Consequently, it is not possible to take a drive from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp. The South side of the Everest Base Camp Trail is more well-liked by hikers than the China Side.

North side of Everest Base Camp: From Tibet’s side, there is a fine road that leads to Everest Base Camp. From Lhasa, Tibet, you may easily get to Everest Base Camp.

Everest Base Camp has two sides: a north side and a south side. So, it depends on which side you are visiting Everest Base Camp. From the southern side of Nepal, you cannot see Mount Everest’s top. Instead, you can view Nuptse and the Khumbu Ice falls in large part from base camp. Everest’s summit is really obscured from view. Therefore, for a better view of Mount Everest and other numerous peaks, trekkers hike to Kalapather (5,545m). And we have included the Kalapather visit in our itinerary.

But, if you travel to Everest’s northern side from Tibet, you can see the breathtaking views of Everest. It is possible to travel to the base camp on the Tibetan side as part of an overland tour or as part of the hike to the advanced base camp, which is at a height of 6400 meters.

If you wish to go hiking in the spring (March to May) or fall (September to November), you do not require crampons or any other climbing equipment. However, if you are trekking in January or February during the winter season, it is advisable to carry crampons or microspikes with you. It will be challenging to trek on a snowy route without crampons. There’s a chance that snow will cover the paths then. Please be aware that having a pair of good hiking boots may increase your enjoyment of the activity.

A minimum of 12 days is required for a safe Everest base camp trek starting and ending at Kathmandu. You will have two enough days to acclimatize at Namche and Dingboche throughout these 12 days. It takes 8 days to reach the base camp from Kathmandu including 2 acclimatization days. And within 4 days you will return to Kathmandu from Everest Base Camp. To make it happen, you may engage in regular exercise or cardio at least 4 to 8 weeks before this excursion.

On this trek, about 95% of the local teahouses offer hot shower facilities that are available at an additional cost. And all the cold water is heated by solar power for the hot shower.  Therefore, hot showers are unavailable during the rainy season or on gloomy days. We thus advise you to carry wet wipes in case hot showers are not possible. The cost of a hot shower varies depending on the amenities and elevation. On this EBC trek, you can get better hot shower facilities at Lukla, Phakding, and Namche. For each hot shower, teahouses typically charge between the $2 to $4. The price will then increase with elevation and range from $4 to $8.

Regarding the laundry service for the EBC trip, Namche Bazar and Lukla are the only places where you can find it. Due to the unavailability of high voltage electricity above Namche, laundry service is not possible in every place. And laundry is excessively expensive in Namche & Lukla. Bring adequate clothing for the 11-day journey, and it is best to clean your clothes in Kathmandu after the trek.

This is another concern topic for the trekkers while planning the EBC journey. Every year, thousands of trekkers traveled to the Everest base camp. And 90% of them succeed in completing their journey without any issues. About 10% of travelers are not able to complete the trek because of their health issues. Therefore, it is often risk-free and doable for all hikers. There is no risk of avalanches and landslides on this trek. Travelers have given the tagline of a dangerous airport in the world for Lukla airport because of its inaccessible location. However, Lukla flights are also safer as well. In recent days, the trail to the Everest base camp is well constructed. During the peak season, it is filled with international travelers.

The most difficult aspect of this hike is likely altitude sickness. Thus, you must make the proper preparations before the expedition. Do some internet research or consult with Himalayan experts for advice on the right equipment, a well-prepared itinerary, and training beforehand. Our 12-day schedule includes adequate time for two days of acclimatization in Namche and Dingboche. You just need to be in good physical and mental health. Eat wisely, drink plenty of fluids and take enough rest during the trek.

Who doesn’t want to visit the world’s most popular destinations? Don’t you want to spend your hard-earned money by visiting worthwhile places on earth? Everyone wants to travel to European Alps, the Eifel tower in Paris, Argentina’s Patagonia, Niagara falls in Canada, and so on. Likewise, if you are a hiking enthusiast, you must have dreamed about Everest Base Camp Trek.

Consequently, every trekking lover put this epic journey on their travel bucket list. Mount Everest – 8848.86 meters is the tallest peak on the planet. And reaching the top of Mount Everest is not possible for every dreamer. But, if you are physically and mentally fit you can at least reach the base camp of Everest without investing millions of dollars. Backpackers from around the world have their dream to visit the entire trekking destination in the world. But it is not possible to visit each of the world’s hiking places in their lifetime. So, they make their travel plan according to the popularity of the places. And definitely, everyone wants to visit Everest Base Camp at least once in their lifetime.

Initially, you have to make a 20% deposit as an advance payment to confirm this trip with us. And remaining 80% should pay after your arrival in Kathmandu (before the trek). Once we received your advance payment, we will send you an e-receipt via email for your confirmation.
You can pay advance payments through bank transfers or western union. And for the remaining payment, we accept visa/master cards as well as cash. However, we always prefer remaining payments in cash as we have to send the cash with our guide to pay your food and accommodation bills throughout the trek.

Yes, indeed you need some additional cash on the trek. As you are aware, even if you purchase full board service from us, usages of the internet, hot showers, battery charging, cold beverages, beers, etc. in the mountain region are not included. Therefore, you can pay yourself at the teahouses along the trail for these extra services. It is the optional amenities. So, if you don’t want to use it, you don’t have to pay for it.

Normally, an additional $15-25 for each day is enough for your extra expenses.  However, you’ll need more extra cash if you want to drink beer or shop for items in the mountain.

We advise you to carry cash in local currency from Kathmandu. Because teahouses prefer to accept cash in Nepalese rupees. You can get local currency from the money exchange shop in Thamel or withdraw from ATMs. You can also find ATMs machines in Namche but it is not sure whether it works or not.

Tipping is not compulsory or even customary in Nepal, but it is a nice way to say thanks to your guides and porters. The wages of workers in Nepal are significantly less than the average income of other developed countries. Tourist guides and porters are employed only when tourist make their visit to Nepal. And the rest of the time, they won’t have a job. They need to make money during the tourist season to support their family till the next season. Therefore, all tourist guides and porters accept thanks or tips from visitors after their treks or tours. It’s also a great way to motivate them for their generous involvement in tourism in the years to come.

Even more, your gratitude will encourage them to work harder and serve better on their next trips.
In general, tip them at least 10% of your trip cost or USD 10 -12 per day for the guide and USD 7-9 for the porters. However, if you are satisfied and feel the staff did an excellent job, you can tip them more than the mentioned.

Below are the mountains that you can see while on the Everest Base Camp Trek. You can see all these mountains from different parts and viewpoints of this trek.

  1. Mt Everest (8,848m)
  2. Lhotse (8,516m)
  3. Lhotse Shar (8,382m)
  4. Makalu (8,485m)
  5. Cho Oyu (8,188m)
  6. Ama Dablam (6,814m)
  7. Pumori (7,165m)
  8. Nuptse (7,861m)
  9. Thamserku (6,618m)
  10. Kangtega (6,783m)
  11. Khumbila (5,765m)
  12. Nangkar Tshang (5,616m)
  13. Gonggila (5,808m)
  14. Hinku Himal (6,769m)
  15. Number (6,75m)
  16. Kondge (6,186m)
  17. Kusum Kangkaru (6,370m)
  18. Tabuche peak (6,495m)
  19. Cholatse (6,335m)
  20. Lobuche (6,135m)
  21. Nirekha Peak (6,159m)
  22. Changri (6,027m)
  23. Khumbu (6,859m)
  24. Khumbutshe (6,639m)

The highest sleeping point of this trek is 5,164 meters at Gorakshep and the lowest sleeping point of this trek is 2,650 meters which is Phakding.

There isn’t any age restriction for this hike. However, it is a strenuous hike at a high altitude that passes over mountains, rocky terrain through rivers, and alpine woods. Therefore, we advise anyone between the ages of 15 – 55 to take part in this walk. But, if you are a seasoned hiker in your 60s or 70s and in good physical shape, you can also participate in this activity and successfully complete the walk.

Actually, Lukla’s flights depend on the weather. Lukla airport is situated at an elevation above 2,800 meters and is surrounded by high hills and mountains. Therefore, it is tough to take land on the ground if the weather is inclement. In the months of March, April, May, October, November, and December flights won’t get canceled as the weather in these months are pleasant and clear. Mostly, Lukla flights get canceled in the monsoon months which are June, July, and August.

Fluids and water play a vital role to acclimatize your body with the high altitudes while you are on Himalayan treks. Therefore, it is necessary to consume at least 3-5 liters of water every day. This figure includes tea/coffee, milk, soups and bottled /boiled water. We suggest you drink water as much as you can only between breakfast and dinner time. You won’t get enough sleep at night if you drink a lot of water after dinner since you will need to use the restroom frequently.

Incredible Everest base camp trek in December
By Henry and Suzane, France
December 26, 2022

It was an awesome Everest base camp trek in the month of December with the Glorious Himalaya. It was a bit cold in the month of December but the views were crystal clear and the flow of tourists was low. We couldn’t imagine the sunrise view from the Kalapather that we had experienced on this trek. If you are going on this trip don’t miss it.

Due to our limited time, we spent only 2 nights in Namche bazaar for acclimatization. After Namche, we continued the hike to Base camp without acclimatizing in Dingboche. Normally, trekkers stay two nights at Dingboche for better acclimatization but we skipped it due to our short holiday time.

Our guide Siva was superb and porter Anis was superhuman. Even at the high altitude, he carried our belongings easily. Hats up to your hard work man. Through this review, we would like to suggest all the trekkers who are hiring guides and porters, please make them happy by giving some tips at the end of the trek in Lukla as they work very hard in the high altitudes to make your trip successful.

In the end, we would like to thank Ganesh, who managed our EBC trek including our flights, accommodations, meals, guide and porter.

Good luck team and will visit Nepal again with your agency.

EBC – You must visit once in your lifetime
By Sean Paul, United States
December 18, 2022

Before we book this trip with Glorious Himalaya, we were in trouble choosing the best and most reliable local agency amongst the hundreds of tour companies in Nepal. And finally, we decided to go Everest base camp trek with this agency after we researched in many ways. Their instant response, reasonable price, a fair and ethical policy for looking after the porters and guides impressed us to book with them.

From the arrival to departure they managed all our hotel bookings, transfers and meals during our Nepal stay.

We had good times in the mountains during the trek. We did 12 days Everest base camp trek and 1 day sightseeing tour in Kathmandu. Our trekking guide Suman was exceptional and well-experienced. Though the weather was not clear at Kalapather however overall trip was great and well organized.  Thanks to our porters’ shiva, raju and dal. Without your support, it would not have been possible.

We are happy to recommend your agency to adventure seekers who are planning to visit Nepal for their holiday. Please go with this agency and we are sure you won’t be disappointed.

Best regards from,

Sean, Jordan, Michelle, Albert, Emma and Olivia

Great time in the Himalayas
By Sofie, Denmark
December 11, 2022

“It was my first time in Nepal having the Himalayan experience. My husband and I were planning to spend our holiday in Nepal for a long time, and also it was my longtime dream to trek to Himalaya and be in the mountains. We then finally decided to venture for both Gokyo and Everest Base Camp which later turned into a lifetime experience for us. Having completed this trek successfully with the help of the Glorious Himalaya Team, we had luck with the weather and everything went as per the plan. Despite the cold weather and physical challenges, we made it with the help of porters and our guide Roshan. We enjoyed every moment in the mountains and would like to thank the entire team of Glorious Himalaya for excellently organizing this trip for us. We will definitely be back to Nepal with our children shortly and recommend this trek to everyone!!!”

Base camp arrival was the best and first look of Everest! For future climbers a kind reminder that it is not easy and if it were easy everybody could do it. 🙂 As a sidenote, if you try to send post cards ask about buying post stamps upfront. Overall experience is fascinating.

The trekking has shown us wonderful natural environment, interesting places, people and culture, as well as demanding physical challenge. The organization was excellent, and our guides Buddhi and Bishal have shown competence, friendliness and a lot of motivation. Some of us had to return eariler due to problems with altitude, and team did everything to organize return, welcome us in Kathmandu and show us many interesting places there. Thanks for everything!

Best Everest Base Camp Tour Possible
By SengAnn G, Singapore
April 25, 2022

I found Glorious to be one of the most comprehensive companies when prepping you from the Everest base camp trek.

The package actually covers you from start to finish once you land in Kathmandu and fly out for there.

My guide Roshan made the effort to fulfil every single request that I have thrown to him, it’s not easy but he tries his best to ensure that I have the best experience possible and making this trip a dream come through, I’ll definitely look at glorious again If I am ever looking to do this again!

A great trek to the EBC

We enjoyed a great trekking experience in the Khumbu valley last October. Our trek was well organized by the Glorious Himalaya Trekking agency: plane tickets to/from Lukla, friendly guide and porters, good choice of lodges. Great thanks to you all 🙏

We wanted to do a shortened Everest Base Camp trek with our family (two kids of 13 and 9 years). We choose Glorious Himalaya Agency without knowing them before. We were not disappointed, on contrary, but impressed. Everything worked on time and as planned. The staff was friendly and extremely professional and helpful. Exceptional porters and guides, too. Next trekking? Only with them!

Lifetime experience that is etched in my memory forever and the hospitality and the services were equally great.
By Karma D, Bhutan
April 14, 2021

We recently did 12 days Everest base camp trek through the Glorious Himalaya team. The views and scenery were amazing throughout the trek.

In the first part, we were stuck in Kathmandu for 2 days due to the foggy and windy weather. On the 3rd day, we succeeded to fly to Lukla from where our trek begins. We trek via Phakding – Namche Bazar – Tengboche – Dingboche – Gorakshep and then to Everest Base camp, which is the main destination of our trip. The final hike from Gorakshep to Kalapather was a bit difficult and exhausting but the views were magnificent once we reached the top – 5555 meters above sea level. Even more, were stunned by the sunrise views.

Overall, our trip was amazing and worth every penny.
In the end, we would like to thanks all the trekking staff of Glorious Himalaya. Due to their assistance, we were able to complete this trek without any difficulties. Hence, we strongly recommend GHT team for any kind of Nepal tour. They are a highly experienced, reliable, and trustworthy company in Nepal.

GREAT EBC TREK !!!
By Leon Steiner, Austria
December 28, 2019

“I was on a trek on a group of 6 with Buddhi. He is a dynamic, energetic, and supportive guide. He always kept us motivated, continuously interacting with us on our health and conditions to make sure that we are coping well with the height. He was regularly asking if there are ways to make ourselves more comfortable. His abundance of experience as a trekking guide really made our trek easier. I highly recommend Buddhi and thank all the team members of Glorious for organizing the amazing experience we had on the EBC trek.”

BEST AGENCY IN NEPAL. PERIOD !
By Jenny, Canada
October 19, 2019
“Everest was phenomenal !!! Even if we did not had luck with the weather, we still enjoyed the trip. Bishal was the greatest guide in Nepal. He wouldn’t leave my side even though I was hours behind the main party. He even braved rafting the Trisuli River with us althoudh he did mention he would NEVER go rafting again. (doesn’t like getting tossed around and overboard on our raft)”
EXCELLENT AND WELL ORGANIZED TRIP!

“The trek experience with this company was amazing! Ganesh made everything possible within 2 days of booking including a good briefing answering all the relevant questions!
The guide Dakman and Porter Kumal were very helpful and knowledgeable about the mountains, granting me the best experience possible for EBC. I definitely recommend booking via this company!”
AMAZING COMPANY WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE AND FLEXIBILITY
By Amelie Chevrolet, France
November 5, 2018

“Glorious Himalaya gave us a competitive package and excellent service right from the first contact over email. Ganesh, who runs the company is very punctual, proficient, welcoming and has an excellent team. His expertise and guidance on the EBC trek supported us to finalize this grand trek in a remarkably short time.

The guide (Buddhi), porters and all the combinations throughout our trek were great. Buddhi was very humble and even played football with my young boys. He made sure we are happy and comfortable. The hotels and lodges arranged by Ganesh/Buddhi throughout the whole trek (Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Lukla) were really comfortable, well placed, neat and tidy with the delicacy of meals and service.

I would highly recommend Glorious Himalaya for trekking in Nepal.”AMAZING COMPANY WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE AND FLEXIBILITY

PERFECTLY ORGANIZED TRIP!!!
By Arnelle, United Kingdom
May 3, 2018

“Wonderfully Organized Ganesh and His Team!!!
Everything was very professional and perfectly planned.
It felt like more of a journey than a trip.

Our Local Guide Dakman knew much more than the rest of the guides and explained to us everything that we saw while on the trek. It was interesting that he knew every hotel and lodge owner. We couldn’t have completed this trip without his knowledge, experience, and guidance was perfect. He was continually asking about our health and comfort for the 12 days. With the fantastic guidance and care of Dakman, our amazing group of 9 reached EBC with only minimal effects from the altitude.

In General, I considered our Guide, Porters and Company was very professional and well experienced, responsible and caring all the way.

Thank you to Glorious, Dakman and all the Porters for a remarkable trip!”

Momentous Everest Base Camp Trek
By Lucia's Family , Mexico City
June 11, 2014

I have on this Nepal trip with Glorious Himalaya Trekking team twice. This season (May 2014), I did Everest base camp trek with my family (Father / Husband / Son / Daughter) and it was a brilliant trip for us with the assist of GHT member. From our arrival in Kathmandu airport to the departure dates, company members take all the responsibility very well and we really like their way of traditionally welcome to the guest by “Namastee”.

Guide of this company is very experienced, skilled, knowledgeable and have ability to handle the critical situations. During this trip my father had some food poison problem but he get well with in two days because of our Guide “Chandra” guidance. He knows very well about the food poison treatment which is one of the most important part of the Himalayan guide. And our porters Ram and Guru was very helpful and smiley faces and friendly as well. We had lots of memorable moments during this trip with my family.

Well, me and my family members do not have hesitation to recommend this trekking company for your adventure holidays to my friends, relatives and the adventure travelers. And I can’t wait to organize my next trip with this company in near future.

Thanks !

Regards,

EXCELLENT TREK TO EVEREST BASE CAMP

“It was such a memorable moment in our life. Everest base camp trek offers not only the views of giant mountains, but it also gives a chance to explore the culture of the Sherpa community, valleys and the remoteness of Khumbu region.”
A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE !!!
By Ruben, Holland
November 13, 2013

“We successfully completed EBC Trek last October with the help of Ganesh and His Team.
The thrilling flight to Lukla was an adventure in itself.
The trek was challenging but rewarding in every way.
Standing on the lap of Everest was the most exciting and unique experience we’ve ever had.

Everything was well organized and the service could not have been better.
We can’t ask for more but only to thank them for our successful trip.
Thanks to our Guide, Porters, and the entire team for helping us complete this trek.
Our guide Ram was very professional, well informed and explained to us very well.
Accommodation and meals were very appreciated.

We carried wonderful memories flying back home and still miss the mountains!!!
See you on our more future trips to Nepal. I would definitely recommend this once in a lifetime trek to Everyone. Thank you! Ganesh and his team for organizing this trip”

Unforgettable EBC and Chola Pass Trek
By Karther Krams , Wildburgstr, Germany
April 15, 2011

Ktm-Lukla-Gokyo-Kalapathar-Base Camp-Lukla-Ktm. I did the typical tourists up hits at the famous Mt. Everest Trek in Solokhumbhu. The trek was scheduled for 17 days but we completed the trek in 15, because of good weather. It was really fun and exhausting at the same time. The highlight was not the Base Camp but the Chola Pass. (Bhes, my Guide was right saying that Base Camp is not worth visiting and Chola is the best) Bhes is a very experienced guide and a very friendly person. He actually made this trip a unique experience not only in terms of sportive action but also in cultural exchange. Thank you very much for this experience.
