Few trekking routes are comparable in beauty and thrill with Everest Base Camp Trek. Sky high mountains, spectacular glaciers, gorges, mountain valleys, ancient Buddhist monasteries and the unique culture of Sherpa people are some of the salient features of Everest trek. The rich plant and animal life diversity of the high Himalayas are other attraction while trekking to the Base Camp of Mount Everest.

Crisscrossing the ancient Khumbu Trail, you will be able to watch peaks like Mt.Thamserku, Mt. Nuptse, Bancharo Peak, Pasang Lhamu Peak, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Cholatse, Mt. Kangtenga, Mt. Tabuche etc. from a close range. We will walk along the banks of the Dudh Koshi river for most part of the trek. The lower belt of the Everest region is covered by rhododendron forests. The northern stretch, which lies at higher altitude, is full of Alpine vegetation. The places at farthest north, Everest Base Camp and Kalapathhar, are barren and tundra like.

You will enjoy a thrilling walk along the Khumbu ice glacier before reaching Everest Base Camp. EBC provides spectacular view of the mountains that are within touching distance. Kalapatthar is at a higher altitude. Mount Everest is seen between two mountain peaks from Kalapatthar - therefore getting its name as the shy mountain.

The itinerary for this EBC trek is designed at 14 days. It is two days longer than the 12 day EBC trekking and a two days shorter than the 16 day trek to Everest Base Camp. This trek provides a perfect balance between time required, thrill and rest opportunities. You will be accompanied by trained and highly experienced guides and porters who have taken the trip to Everest Base Camp many times before. They are also adept at emergency treatment and first aid.

Route Summary: Kathmandu - Lukla - Namche Bazaar - Tengboche - Everest Base Camp - Kalapatthar - Namche - Lukla - Kathmandu.

Best Season: September to December and February to May

Important Notes and Safety Concerns

We will book a chartered helicopter in case of cancellation of your flight but you're responsible for the cost incurred. Cost can range from US$ 200-600 or more. It depends upon the number of people in the flight and the distance involved.

We suggest you to add two extra days at the end of your trip to allow as cushion for unforeseen events. Always add extra days at the end of your trip and not at the start.

Please come fully prepared because Everest Base Camp Trek is extremely adventurous and challenging. We suggest you to buy insurance with Helicopter Evacuation coverage because helicopters will be the only evacuation means in case of altitude sickness and emergency during the trek.
