Everest Base Camp -18 days

Kathmandu and Everest Region

Trip Overview

The Everest Base Camp Trek offers some of the most spectacular landscapes in the Himalayas. Following your exploration of Kathmandu, you fly to Lukla, where your trek to Everest begins. The trail follows the stream of the Dudh Kosi, the ‘River of Milk,’ gently ascending through rhododendrons and magnolia forests.

Rest days are provided in Namche Bazaar (the lovely Sherpa capital) and Dingboche town (located beneath the majestic peak of Ama Dablam) to assist with acclimatization.

The temperature will have fallen by the time you arrive in Lobuche, and you will be trekking among frozen rivers in an arctic landscape. From here, you make your way to Base Camp, which is located at the base of the world’s tallest peak. The final highlight is Kala Patar (5545 m), with breathtaking views of Everest and the Khumbu Glacier flowing below.

Detail Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal's capital.

Kathmandu is one of Nepal's busiest cities, with a diverse population and culture crammed into a small area. In addition, it is home to Nepal's only international airport, Tribhuvan International Airport. Our representative will meet you at the airport and transport you to the finest five-star hotel in Kathmandu, The Dwarika Hotel. The tour manager and guide will join you for dinner that night.

Day 2Kathmandu Sightseeing

Kathmandu Valley is unique in that it includes seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites within its 665 square kilometer size. Today, we will visit some of Nepal's most beautiful cultural and architectural sites. After breakfast, we will visit Basantapur Durbar Square, which was formerly the royal palace of the Malla Kings and then the Shahs. Following that, we will proceed to Patan Durbar Square. It is most renowned for having the most artistic architecture in the Kathmandu Valley. We will also have lunch there before continuing our sightseeing at the Golden Temple of Patan. Pasupatinath is Nepal's most prestigious temple, where you may watch the evening aarati.

Day 3Flight to Lukla (2,860 m) and then Monjo (2,835 m)

We will take the first flight from Kathmandu to Lukla on the first day of the journey. Some say it was the most exciting part of their journey because it had never gone smoothly before. So, on the first day of the journey, we'd be preparing to land on one of the world's shortest runways. We would eat breakfast in Lukla and then begin walking, passing through the little villages of Cheplung and Pakding. We'd be crossing the suspension bridges as well.

Day 4Monjo to Namche bazaar(3,440 m)

We'd start our journey from Monjo and make our way to Namche Bazaar, the Himalayan gateway town. Namche Bazaar, also known as Nemche Bazaar or Namche Baza, It is a small and popular village in the Khumbu region. It offers the greatest hotels as well as banking, shopping, and expedition equipment.

Day 5Acclimatization day at Namchebazaar(3,440m)

Even if you are feeling OK, never, ever underestimate the acclimatization day. Every Saturday, a temporary market known as Haatbazaar in Nepalese is built up to this height. If we arrive in Namche on Friday, you'll be able to see it. Furthermore, you can use your acclimatization day by hiking up to Chhorkung. It is located above Namche or by walking to the small runway at Syangboche.

Day 6Namche Bazaar(3,440 m) to Debouche(3,820 m)

On day 6, we would leave Namche, following the hilly trail with the most panoramic view of the Himalayas. We would arrive in Tengboche, where we would also have lunch, over rocky and difficult walking trails and neighboring gompas and forests. Tengboche or Thyangboche (3,860 m) is a small settlement with a stunning view of the Himalayan peaks, including Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku. It is also the site of Tengboche monastery, the largest monastery in the Khumbu region. Dawa Choling Gompa is another name for Tengboche monastery (Thyangboche monastery). We'd then keep heading toward Debouche.

Day 7Debouche(3,820 m) to Dingboche(4,410 m)

Today, we would begin our journey from Debouche (3,820 m) to Dingboche (4,410 m), which would take roughly 5–6 hours. It'll be a hard day of hiking, but it'll be worth it because the hike begins with one of the best and most fascinating vistas of Ama Dablam. We'd get to Pangboche and then Dingboche after crossing Milingo and a little footbridge. You may also notice that the air is dryer from here. Stay the night at Dingboche.

Day 8Acclimatization day at Dingbouche(4,410m)

Here! Another day of acclimatization is planned, including a short climb in nearby Nangkartshang, where there are meditation retreats. A trained guide would undoubtedly take you much higher than Nangkartshang, where you may see the heavenly clean views of Cholatse (6,440 m), Taboche (6,542 m), Chhukung (5,550 m), and Makalu (8,481 m). Stay the night at Dingboche.

Day 9Dingboche(4,410 m) to Lobuche(4,940 m)

Good morning from Dingboche! Today, we will continue our walk to reach that one dream destination, EBC. We would be there standing at the base camp, the day after tomorrow. Already feeling excited? Well, once we start our walk, we would then stop at Dughla, a nice place to have an early lunch. From where we would hike over the looming pass. It is considered one of the tightest trails of the Everest base camp trek. Thus, we will take some time to pass it. We will recommence our trek from there to the freezing village, Lobuche after paying attention to the memorials of climbers and porters who sank on Everest at the tip. Overnight at Lobuche.

Day 10Lobuche(4,940 m) to Gorak Shep(5,164 m)

Because of the altitude, Lobuche, a little settlement under the shadow of Mount Everest, is considered a difficult location to visit. Observing the Khumbu Glacier and then hiking the Changri Shar Glacier would be a difficult feat in the dry air. We'd fight those anxieties and lack of space by dehydrating ourselves to keep going. It would appear that the journey from Lobuche to Gorak Shep would take 3–4 hours. So go ahead and take your time and enjoy the scenarios. Stay in Gorak Shep for the night.

Day 11Gorakshep(5,164 m) to Everest Base camp then again back to Gorak Shep(5,164 m)

A two-hour hike from Gorakshep would take you to the dream destination of Everest Base Camp. We will have breakfast at the Everest Base Camp, where the journey of the highlanders who chase their ambition of conquering Everest begins, which will undoubtedly be a memorable event. What else can we say about that gorgeous peak, Everest? And after all of this, we won't pass up the opportunity to view Everest. As a result, we will trek back to Gorak Shep before ascending to Kala Patthar. We'd be staying in Gorakshep so that we could get up early and get to Kala Patthar as soon as possible.

Day 12Hike from Gorak Shep up to Kala Pathar and then to Pheriche

Sleeping in the lap of the Himalayas is an incredible experience. Truly incredible! But this night isn't going to last as long as you'd like. We need to get up early in the morning to obtain the best views of those colossal beasts. We'll have to climb up to Kala Patthar for this. Kala Pathar is particularly popular with trekkers in the Mount Everest region because it offers the best close-up view of Mount Everest. It would take about two hours to get there. Following the ascent of Kala Pathar, we would continue our journey toward Pheriche, which is also a popular trekking village.

Day 13Pheriche to Namche Bazaar

After breakfast, we'd continue on our way to Namche, the center of the Everest region, which would take us around 8 hours to reach. Don't worry about the path; it still contains small ups and downs to simulate going back from the Everest region.

Day 14Namche Bazaar to Monjo

Today, we will walk up to Monjo from Namche. It will be a relaxing walk, so you can take your time to have a nice breakfast. You will be spending your night at Monjo.

Day 15Monjo to Lukla

After breakfast, we would travel to Lukla, a little hamlet in the Solukhumbu region. Despite the fact that Lukla means "place of many goats and sheep," only a few could be observed in the vicinity today.

Day 16Fly back to Kathmandu

It will be our final day of trekking and the highlight of the Everest Base Camp trek. We'll leave Lukla early in the morning in order to get the finest possible view of Everest from the plane. After we arrive in Kathmandu, the rest of the day is yours. Returning to the buzz and bustle of this anciently busy metropolis

Day 17Bhaktapur sightseeing

And today, we're going to explore Bhaktapur, the city best known for its cultural heritage. Stay in Bhaktapur for the night

Day 18Departure

The day of your departure is here, and it is time to say good-bye to Nepal. Following breakfast, our tour manager will check you out of the hotel and transport you to Tribhuvan International Airport.
