Trip Overview

Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest Base Camp Trek, which departs from Sherpa-land in Solukhumbu, Nepal, is one of the most challenging and beautiful hikes in the Himalaya. The approximately 100-mile Himalayan trail, which is well-liked by novices, backpackers, and experienced hikers, climbs, crosses mountains, and descends the Khumbu Himalayas while traversing Namche bazaar, alongside glacial rivers, and among Buddhist meadows.

For every trekker, the Everest Base Camp Trek is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The trip to Mount Everest is a Grade 3-level tough connection from Kathmandu by a short, straightforward flight to Lukla’s Tenzing Hillary airport. The flight itself is an exhilarating trip that everyone should have before they pass away.

The route to Mt. Everest Base Camp passes via the Dudhkoshi river valley’s bank and frequently passes through Namche village, Tengboche monastery (3,867 m), and Pangboche village, among other traditional Sherpa settlements. Before ascending the glacial trail to the elevated base camp of the majestic Everest and vantage point for Everest views, Kalapattar, our well planned trip to the Mt. Everest Base Camp allows for sufficient acclimatization at various locations. The highest place to view Mount Everest’s glory is Kalapattar, which is located at an elevation of 5545 meters. Everest Base Camp is located at an elevation of 5357 meters. The Everest Base Camp tour then descends to Lukla before taking a flight to Kathmandu.

Nowadays, the Everest Trek is conducted in tea houses, which adds a sense of cultural etiquette to this energizing excursion. Our tour guides for this challenging trekking trip in Nepal are locals from the Khumbu valley. They have a wealth of knowledge, are polite, and have a knack for hospitality across cultures. Along with these favorable qualities of our guides, Nepal Footprints Holiday enjoys solid partnerships with the regional inns and guest homes in the Khumbu region (4,900m).

Main Features of Everest Base Camp Trek are:

  • EBC (5,364m), the highest mountain base camp in the world
  • You have the opportunity to learn more about Sherpa people, their traditional culture, and their way of life
  • Only Namche Bazaar, a village in Nepal’s Khumbu region, serves as the entrance to Everest Base Camp
  • Trekking to Kala Patthar (5,644m) for a panoramic view of the sunrise over the mountains of the Everest region
  • Amazing views of the mountains, Lake GOKYO, glaciers, and the Everest area from the sky
  • Explore Sagarmatha National Park
  • The breathtaking vistas of 8,848.68m/29,029 ft., the highest mountain in the world
  • A wide variety of plants and animals
  • Visit to Tengboche’s ancient monastery (12,687 feet/3,867 meters)
  • Khumbu Glacier, the highest glacier on Earth (4,900 m)

Everest Base Camp Route

A return trip from Lukla marks the completion of the typical 14–16-day journey from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp. The paths and your walking endurance will determine how far you can travel to reach the Himalayas. We can provide an another route to Lukla for those who wish to trek for longer and take more time. From Kathmandu, you can take a ride to Jiri-Bhandara or trek to Lukla from Phaplu-Kharikhola. Adding five extra days to your journey for trekking through Jiri will give you memories you’ll cherish forever. Your personalized tour to EBC will be tailored by NFH to meet your needs.

Everest Base Camp Difficulty

The most challenging aspect of the Everest Base Camp trekking is its altitude. It starts with an altitude of 2,860m (Lukla) and continues all the way to the altitude of 5,364 m. on the south side of Mt. Everest. At 5,644m Kalapatthar, you will rejoice the most spectacular panoramic view of the Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Amadablam.

Hiking to EBC is extra mile challenge and ultimate experience of thin air, glacier and high altitude. You need to prepare well. We recommend you walk at least 6-7 hours a day for a couple of weeks before embarking the journey. Our experienced guide will assist you to maintain a steady pace and your safekeeping throughout this exhilarating journey. We like to assure you that you will enjoy this trip, and join us on other adventures that we offer.

Best time to Trek Everest Base Camp

September-May is the perfect time for trekking on Mount Everest base camp in Nepal. December-February is the winter season, the trekking routes are snowy and cold, and the tourist season slows the flow to Kala Patthar. You can explore Sagarmatha National Park at Everest Base Camp. However, people participate all year round based on their personal interests.

Cost of Everest Base Camp

There are many factors that affect the cost of Everest Base Camp trekking. Here are some important factors:

  • Trekking time
  • Everest Base Camp Hotel
  • Lukla flight
  • Trekking Type: Whether to hire a guide, porter, or an all-inclusive trekking package

However, the standard 16-day cost from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp is  US $1350 per person.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter (Optional Tour)

EBC tour by helicopter from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp or one-way tour to MT. Everest Base camp followed by a Helicopter ride to Kathmandu is another alternative trip to Mt. Everest. If you like to explore your option we will be more than happy to plan.

Everest Base Camp Trek

Me and some mates just completed a trek to EBC and back with Nepal Footprint.
The organization and professionalism of Nepal Footprint Holidays was amazing throughout the entire process. I cant commend them enough on how the entire process was handled.
We had Kumar as our guide and I couldn’t recommend him enough if you are after a knowledgeable and committed guide who wants the best for his trekkers, their health and experience.
Also, if you are thinking about trekking Nepal, don’t go with a large international company. Nepal Footprint will put together a package to suit your needs without the 20 person group that i could imagine would be frustrating. All at a reduced cost.
Thank you so much again to Bashu, Kumar and the team at Nepal Footprint.
