Overview of 17 days Everest Base Camp Trek
17 days Everest Base Camp Trek is the King of all trekking in Nepal. Mount Everest Base Camp is the highlight of the Everest Base Camp 17-days trek. The base camp of Everest is at an altitude of 5,365 m.
The itinerary of the trek is longer compared to an Everest Base Camp trek and an even shorter 12-day trek to the base camp of Mount Everest. This Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary is designed to allow a day of sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley at the start of the trek and enough acclimatization opportunities.
The Everest Base Camp 16 Days Trek takes you to the Khumbu Valley. The Khumbu valley–where most of the trek takes place–is home to the wonderful Sherpa people. Sherpas from these communities are all Buddhists. There are many monasteries in the Everest region like Pangboche, Tengboche, and Dingboche. Most of Everest Base Camp Trekking takes place along the banks of the Dudh Koshi river.
You will spot many species of endangered plants and animals during the trek. Impeyan Pheasant (Danfe), Snow Pigeon, Mountain Goats, Yak, and Snow Leopard are among the animals and birds encountered on the way. Rhododendron, Magnolia, and Giant Firs form a majority of vegetation.
The forests are dense green with temperate vegetation in the lower belt of the Everest Region. The middle belt possesses alpine vegetation and the final stages of the Everest Base Camp Trek are characterized by Tundra vegetation.
The Everest Base Camp Trek starts with a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. We first walk to Namche Bazaar from Lukla. Namche Bazaar is also known as the gateway to Everest. We will part ways with trekkers on the Everest High Pass Trek and Gokyo Lake Trek from Namche.
The settlement is sparse as we head north from Namche. Ancient monasteries like Tengboche and Dingboche lie on our road to Everest Base Camp. The most thrilling part of the Everest Base Camp trek is the walk along the Khumbu glacier just before reaching the base camp of Everest.
Khumbu is one of the largest glaciers on the planet. Kala Patthar, meaning black rock, is at a higher altitude (5,545 m) than Everest and provides a stunning view of the nearby mountain peaks.

Tips or gratitude for guide and porters
The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, where the journey begins, is normally trustworthy, but if the weather is poor, all flights for the day will be delayed or canceled. We will try to get you on a hired helicopter (depends on your interest )if the flight is cancelled, but you will be liable for the additional fees, which can range from $300 to $600 or more depending on the number of passengers on the Helicopter.
Some itineraries include an extra day in the trek as a buffer in case of delays, while others do not. However, because flights can sometimes be delayed for many days, we recommend that you add a couple of extra days to the end of your trip in case of any delays. Extra days should always be added at the conclusion of the journey rather than the beginning.
