Trip Indroduction

Everest Base Camp Trek is always a good idea for your vacation in Nepal because it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. Everest Base Camp is what the world knows as the real’ Shangri-la’. As the word describes itself, the Everest region is a heaven on earth with the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest looking over the vastness of the earth.  Everest Base Camp Trek takes you through the historical journey that Sir Edmund Hillary along with Tenzing Norgay Sherpa took to conquer the peak in 1953. The route is filled with thrilling experience through the rough mountain terrains, across forest and rivers and passing through many waterfalls which directly comes from the melted glacier ice of the Himalayas. The scenario of the white snow-capped mountains is magnificent in contrast to the blue sky.  You also get the opportunity to know the culture of the Sherpa people living for generations in the Himalayas. Mostly, the famous Sherpa people, the mighty mountain climbers reside in the high altitudes of the Himalayas. There are also magnificent monasteries up there, amidst the high mountains. You can observe the huge stones carved with chanting and prayers along the trail in the Himalayan villages.

Everest Base Camp Trekking is not only a simple trek; it takes you through an embarking journey of life. This is the route that many risks in order to capture a glimpse, or even overcome the highest summit in the world. Throughout the history of mankind in the Himalayas, the Everest has been the subject of study. Today the trek has been made easier with rigorous trial and errors. There are also the well-known Sherpas of the Himalayas who help us to guide through the trekking routes. In our itinerary of 14 days, there is enough time to visit all the places and become amazed by the diversity of nature and cultural harmony. While traveling we spend the night in the village lodges and know about the people, their traditions, as well as their food. For about 2 weeks you can wake up in the mountains to view the amazing Himalayan range glistening in the sunlight. Despite the steady schedule of this trek, trekkers are still required to be in good health with moderate physical fitness.

Our 14 Days Journey to Everest Base Camp begins from Lukla, a visitor’s hub in the Khumbu region. We trek through the Sagarmatha National Park, where we can find varieties of flora and fauna under conservation.  The park is also enlisted in the UNESCO world heritage site due to its diverse vegetation and animals at the brink of extinction.  The highest point that we reach in this trek is about 5545m high which is the peak of Kala Patthar, which literally means the “Black Rock”. The peak provides some of the spectacular views of the Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse. During acclimatization, we will make the best use of the day as we go hiking around the areas to explore wonderful places or visit the spiritual monasteries, instead of resting ideally.

Everest Base Camp Trek is safe and highly recommended trek in Nepal. Himalayan Monk Travels & Treks is glad to operate this Everest trek for you to make it your life experience. Remember us for Everest Trekking and other different packages for Trekking in Nepal like Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Helambu Trek, Langtang Gosainkunda Trek, Manaslu Circuit Trek and many more!

Accomodation

You will stay in a three-star hotel in Kathmandu and Pokhara as per B/B. The rooms are clean, spacious and simple with comfortable beds, along with attached bathrooms with hot water supply. The rooms are usually double bedrooms, but it can be supplemented with single rooms with additional fees. The hotels have in-house restaurant bars as well as spas. The restaurants provide popular courses over the world and also delicious local cuisines.

Accommodation during the Everest Trek includes lodging in guest houses or tea houses with basic furnished rooms and attached bathroom. Many lodges have the modern type sitting toilets attached with the room, but as we get further, the lodges get more basic with only bed and a side table in the room and squat-type toilets, mostly common toilets, located outside the rooms. Hot water supply also depends on the location of the lodge/guest house. Most of the bathrooms have solar powered running hot water. We would discourage the use of hot water boiled over the fire woods that could cause some environmental concerns.

Meals

Meals, while you are in Kathmandu, include only breakfast. It depends on you whether you want to eat in the hotel or outside the hotel, all on your cost, and you choose where to eat and what to eat. Food in the city is not much to worry about as you will find every type of cuisine, form authentic Nepali to international dishes (continental, Italian, Tibetan, Indian, etc) around every corner of the city. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be on the basis of B/B in the city while it is included in the package during the trek.

A traditional meal outside Kathmandu is the favorite Dal-bhat, cooked rice with lentil soup, along with freshly cooked vegetables and pickles.  You can have other dishes as per the menu of the hotel or lodge. Some lodges and guest houses have a lavish menu with new dishes to try including some western type food like pizza, chips, and pasta. Every tea house along the trek route serve you with refreshing Nepali milk tea, that you can alternate it with black tea, lemon tea or a more traditional type of tea made with ghee and salt along with snacks.

Travel season

Trek in the Everest region is best during spring and autumn season. The spring (March-May) is a warm period of the year with blossoming flowers, and more birds and animals available to spot during the trek. This is the season to view the glorious rhododendron forest in its full bloom. Autumn (September to mid-December) is also a good season as the weather is neither hot nor cold. There is a chill in the air with clear Himalayan mountain ranges, making the trek a pleasant and astounding walk through the mountains.

It is reasonable to not trek in the Himalayas during the winter as Himalayan Mountains experience heavy snowfalls during the winter seasons. It is also not advisable to trek during summer and monsoon season, but trekking during summer could be a boon to many botanists.

Day 1: Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2600m; 3hrs)

We take a flight from Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu to Lukla airport in the Khumbu region. You can enjoy the thrilling flight over the high mountains as Lukla is located on a high slope in the Khumbu region. We meet our porters and guides in Lukla and start trek by descending to Phakding.  Stay the night in a lodge in Phakding.

Day 2: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m; 5 hrs)

Trekking through the Sagarmatha National Park we reach Namche Bazaar. Today we will have our first glimpse of the magnificent Mt. Everest as we ascend and descent throughout the trail. The trail also passes through many Sherpa villages and calming forest and river paths. Stay the night in a lodge in Namche Bazaar.

Day 3: Acclimatize in Namche Bazaar

We will stay one more day in Namche Bazaar in order to acclimatize. Acclimatization is very important in a high altitude journey such as to the Everest Base Camp. You can either rest up in the lodge or look around the village or hike to the nearby hill. We suggest you take a short hike, a few miles from the village and get the magnificent view of the Everest from there. Stay the night in the same lodge.

Day 4: Namche Bazaar to Phortse (3800m; 5 hrs)

We start our adventurous trek from Namche Bazaar. We descend to the valley of Dudh Koshi after leaving the Namche village. On the way, we find numerous chortens and monasteries decorating the path and villages. We visit Mohang and Rongbuk Monastery that are famous in the area and get an essence of the traditional monastery. As the path descends once more towards Dudh Koshi, we reach Phortse. Stay the night in a lodge in the Phortse village.

Day 5: Phortse to Machermo (4450m; 5-6 hrs)

We trek early from Phortse and ascend the hill to Machhermo. We need to pass through a beautiful Rhododendron forest and walk alongside the Dudh Koshi River to reach Machhermo.  The journey brings us closer to Mt Everest and we can get grand views of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam. Stay the night in a lodge.

Day 6: Machermo to Gokyo (4750m; 5 hrs)

We have an excellent view of the Kangtaiga valley and the great Mt. Cho Oyu (8153m) from the viewpoint.  We start the trek to pass through a wonderful valley, walk along the river banks and climb mountain ridges. We can also view the shimmering blue lakes of the Gokyo valley with the backdrop set by the mighty Cho Oyu. Stay the night in a lodge.

Day 7: Gokyo to Gokyo Peak (5360m), to Thangnak  (4700m; 6hrs)

On the seventh day, we start the day early in the Gokyo village to take a short hike to Gokyo Ri to get a great morning view of the sunrise over the Himalayan mountain range. The Gokyo Ri provides one of the spectacular views of Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, and Makalu. We can also hike to the Ngozumba glacier, which is the longest glacier present in the Himalayas. It is a chance not to be missed after arriving at this point. We descend from the mountain and trek to Thagnak and then rest there for the day. Stay the night in a lodge.

Day 8: Thangnak to Cho La pass (5300m) to Dzonghla (4830m; 6-7 hrs)

We trek to the Cho La pass which is a very steep slope with glacier traverse on its east side.  The top of the pass is magnificent with welcoming prayer flags.  To the south we can see the Ama Dablam soaring through the clouds, to the east is Lobuche and to the west is Cholatse. After passing through glaciers we reach Dzonghla with the great view of the said mountain peaks. Stay the night in a lodge.

Day 9: Dzonghla to Lobuche (4900m; 4hrs)

The route from Dzongla to Lobuche is a short trek of about 2 to 3 hours. We can enjoy the trek exploring the beauty of the Himalayan peaks all covered in glistening white snow.  The trail is easy and you can reach Lobuche with the light walk. We rest at Lobuche and prepare for the next long day.

Day 10: Lobuche to Kala Patthar (5545m), to Lobuche (7 hrs)

The trail from Lobuche to Everest Base Camp is via Gorak Shep. We hike the Kalapattar to get a great view of the Everest. As altitude gets higher, the air gets thinner and we may get altitude sickness. From the Basecamp, we can see many colorful tents of other travelers. We also get the brilliant view of Nuptse, Pumori, and Khumbuste from the base camp. We return through Gorak Shep and stay the night in Lobuche lodge for one more night.

Day 11: Lobuche to Dingboche (3710m; 5 hrs)

We trek to Dingboche, a beautiful village with crop fields protected by stone walls from wind and grazing animals. The village also has a great view of Mt. Makalu, Lhotse, Chalotse, Tawache and Ama Dablam. Stay the night in a lodge.

Day 12: Dingboche to Monjo (2900m; 6 hrs 30 min)

We start the trek from Dingboche and head to Monjo, which is the first village we encounter after we enter the Sagarmatha National Park. The village has a wonderful landscape and you can explore the area for various types of flora and fauna. Stay the night in a lodge.

Day 13: Monjo to Lukla (2800m; 4 hrs)

We head from Monjo back to Lukla village after passing through the trail with breathtaking views of the once up close mountain peaks a few days back.

Day 14: Fly from Lukla to Kathamandu.

We take a flight from the Lukla airport to head back to Kathmandu. The takeoff from the Lukla’s mountain cliff is equally thrilling as the landing during the arrival to the airport.
