Submit Review

The soaring summit of Mount Everest attracts adventure seekers and adrenaline junkies from all over the world. Join us as we travel to the base camp of the highest mountain on earth during this 12-day, guided trip. Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airport and follow the trail that travels along the banks of the thundering Dudh Koshi River.

Reach Namche Bazaar on the second day of the trip. Travel past the Sherpa villages of Debuche, Dingboche and Lobuche to reach Gorakshep, a small settlement (5,164m) that sits on the edge of a frozen, sand-covered lakebed. Reach Everest Base Camp, located in the middle of the Khumbu Glacier, on the eighth day of the trip.

Head for Kala Patthar next. Enjoy stunning views of the mountains, including Mt Ama Dablam, Mt Kangtega, Mt Nuptse, Mt Thamserku, Mt Kusum Kanguru, Mt Pumori, Mt Lhotse, Lobuche Peak, Island Peak, Mt Makalu and, of course, the breathtaking Mt Everest itself, towering above the rest.

Start your journey downhill to Lukla after that.


Fly to Lukla (2,800m) and trek to Phakding (2,650m) 3-4 hrs trek
Our guide picks you up from the hotel for 30-35 minutes of an early morning flight to Lukla. The flight to Lukla itself is a great adventure with an aerial view of the vast landscape with lush valleys and hills, view of the Himalayan range, wavy rivers and valleys. We meet the rest of the team ( porters) and begin on the short trek to Phakding. Watching the local settlements and spinning prayer wheels, we descend to Chheplung village past mani walls. Crossing several suspension bridges, we today walk through dense forest that is home to diverse flora and fauna. Overnight at local guest house. Please note: Lukla flights are operates from Ramechhap during the peak trekking months that are April, May and Octobe, November.
Trek to Namche Bazar (3,440m) - 6 hrs trek
The trail today goes through the upstream along the riverbank to the junction of Bhote Koshi River and Dudh Koshi River. We will have to cross a Hilary bridge. Then we will ascend for Namche Bazaar. On the way, it gives a chance us incredible photographic opportunities as the peaks of Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8511m), Nuptse (7879m), Arna Dablam (6856m) and Taweche (6542m) come into view for the first time of the trip. Overnight at local Guesthouse.
Acclimatization day
We rest this day at Namche Bazaar to acclimatize to the new altitude, which is an ideal place to spend a rest day before heading off towards higher elevation. Instead of resting in your lodge, it is recommended that you stay active and mobile during the acclimatization day. A few hundred feet vertical treks during the day will help you properly acclimatize. Or rather you can spend the day exploring Namche Bazaar. The place is center of the Everest region and has plenty of lodges, tea shops, souvenir shops, ATMs, money exchangers, Internet cafes, government offices, restaurants, bakeries, etc. You can visit Visitor Center near the headquarter of the Sagarmatha National Park where you can observe an assortment of things allied to the first Everest ascenders, Sherpa culture and learn about the various flora and fauna of the Sagarmatha National Park.
Trek to Tengboche (3,870m) - 6 hrs trek
After breakfast, we will leave for Tengboche. The trial goes ups and downs offering us the splendid view of snowy caps like Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, and Mt. Ama Dablam. The trekking today is moderate and not difficult. The views just will keep getting better as we move ahead. You can get to encounter animals, visit some monasteries and go through some beautiful village on the way to Tengboche. There is a possible view of wildlife including musk deer, a herd of Himalayan Thar and colorful pheasants. Going through forest and river, we will be at Tengboche. We then stay overnight at a guest house.
Trek to Dingboche (4,400m) - 6 hrs trek
Today is a more relaxed day with a relatively easy trek to Dingboche – except for the last part where we have to climb a steep hill which acts as a reminder that trekking at higher altitudes is more physically draining. We will initially pass through the villages of Somare (4010m) and Orsho. Further along the trail we meet a fork and take the left trail that heads to Pheriche Village, then cross a bridge before that steep climb to Dingboche Village (4410m) which has several suitable lodges.
Another acclimatization day
Again we take a day to better acclimatize and will stay active by trekking up the valley to Chhukung (4730m) and then to Island Peak (Imja Tse). Another option is to take a short trek of about two to three hours to Nangkartshang Gompa. The trail heading to Chhukung leads to Bibr (4570m) which is circled by mountains and offers spectacular views of Taboche, Lhotse (world’s 4th highest) and Nuptse. The final option today is to climb up to Chukhung Ri (5550m) from where you can see Mt. Makalu (8485m), the world’s 5th highest mountain.
Trek to Lobuche (4,900m) - 5 hrs trek
Today is one of the most beautiful days of our Everest Base Camp. We set off for Lobuche. We stumble upon larger snow-capped mountains wherein the tiny villages dwarfed in their shadow add grandeur to these lofty peaks. The trek goes along the beautiful mountain views of , Ama Dablam and to the north-Pokalde (5,741m), Kongma-Tse (5,820m) and the great wall of Nuptse. Passing the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche(4240 m) volunteered by western doctors, we reach Chukpo Lari after a short and steep climb which is beautiful, yet heart touching the place that has an array of memorials in tribute to the climbers who died during Everest expedition. The memorials make you realize the vastness of what Hillary and Tenzing achieved in 1953. After furthermore walk, we will reach Lobuche. After a rest, explore the surrounding and watch the sunset over Nuptse. Prepare for the much-awaited ascent to the Everest Base Camp tomorrow.
Trek to Gorakshep and visit Everest Base Camp (5463m) 8-9 hrs trek
Today is a long 8 hours walk to reach base camp. Our trek starts walking over the rocky path with a view of glacial ponds and icebergs. We climb through meadows and moraine stone steps then reach Gorakhshep and continue heading to Everest base camp 5364 meters. After spending some memorable time in the base camp, we will return to Gorakhshep (5164m). Overnight at Guesthouse.
Hike up to Kalapather and trek to Pheriche (4,320m) - 7-8 hrs trek
As scheduled, we start early in the morning and after about two hours of an ascent, we reach Kala Patthar. The strenuous ascent to the summit is rewarded with a view beyond our imagination. Kala Patthar is decorated by prayer flags and cairns and has a small stupa and weather station at its summit, where you are surrounded by glaciers and incredible panoramic views of the mountains that include Pumori, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam, Taweche, Everest and Kantega. We have breakfast back at Gorekshep and descend to Pheriche for a well-earned rest. Overnight at local guest house.
Trek to Namche Bazar (3,440m) - 6-7 hrs trek
Retrieving journey to Namche Bazaar is pleasantly through valleys and pasturelands. We descend to the lower altitude where breathing becomes easy and the temperature keeps rising as we move further to the lower altitude, passing through Tengboche and continue through enjoying the picturesque view of Monjo valley. You will now follow your footsteps back to Lukla with spectacular views of Amadablam. We continue through the hillside blanketed by rhododendrons and juniper trees and keep a lookout for wildlife such as colorful pheasants, mountain goats, snow leopards, etc. The distance of the mountains makes you feel watching for all the time. Stay overnight at Namche Bazaar.
Trek to Lukla (2,800m) - 6-7 hrs trek
As we are trekking back, our path goes steeply downhill. The more we trek downwards the more we feel easier to breathe as the air gets denser. You will be continuing the trail taking after the Sherpa village and following the Tenzing and Hillary suspension bridge. The trail is full of picturesque view of the landscape and some mountain scenarios. Following the banks of Dudh Koshi River and crossing back many suspension bridges, we pass through forests and small villages, we make our way to Lukla which will be our final stop in Solukhumbu region. You can explore Lukla Bazaar and shop local items there and celebrate your successful and safe trek with your crew. Overnight at Lukla.
Fly back to Kathmandu
Early morning, we leave Tenzing Hillary airport boarding a scenic 35-minute flight back to Kathmandu. Flying over the clouds and enjoying the mesmerizing view of the Khumbu region, we will be carrying an unforgettable and successful journey to the EBC.
