Everest Base Camp (EBC) Short Trek

Duration: 13 Days   |  11 Reviews

Everest Base Camp short Trek for 13 Days is arguably one of the most popular trekking routes in the world. You will walk on the vestige tracks of Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary’s journey to summit Everest(8,848m) for the first time in history in 1953. This trek to the Base Camp offers you everything from jaw-dropping Himalaya views, a walk through Sagarmatha National Park, (UNESCO world heritage site), Buddhist monasteries over 3,000m, to the experience of witnessing some of biggest glaciers and icefalls from the foothills of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest.

 Everest Base Camp(EBC) short trek takes you to Kala Patthar, the ultimate viewpoint in the Everest region; you can enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of Everest and the surrounding mountains including Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, Cho-Oyu, and Nuptse among others. For those seeking thrill and adventure on a new level, there’s nothing like climbing up to the EBC, inspecting the icefalls and coming back to Gorakshep the same day. However, the ultimate thrill comes the next day, when you make your ascent to Kalapathar. It’s the highest point in your 13 day-long Everest Base Camp short Trek.

 

How Difficult Is The Everest Base Camp Trek?

The Everest Base Camp Trek takes you to the Base Camp of the highest mountain in the world at 5,380m above sea level. So naturally, people think it is the most difficult trek in the world. However, that isn’t true. Everest Base Camp Trek isn’t even the most difficult trek in Nepal. There are many misconceptions about Trekking to Everest Region. No, you do not need special training or trekking experience to complete the trek to the Base Camp. The next thing to remember is that the EBc Trek is achievable for anyone with average physical fitness. 

Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate category trek. However, one real challenge during the trek is the altitude, not the terrain. Thousands of novice trekkers successfully scale the Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar every year. There is no reason you cannot be one of them. The Khumbu terrain is comprised of many ascents, descents, and flatlands, but it is well-routed and, thus, achievable. Altitude sickness or Acute Mountain sickness (AMS) is a real health issue people face -- usually above 3,000m.

Talk to your doctor about the use of Diamox, a medication sold to treat altitude sickness. Please remember that acclimatization is the key. Our Everest Base Camp Trek-13 Days includes a day of acclimatization at Namche Bazaar. The  Everest Base Camp Trek-16 Days includes two days of acclimatization, one in Namche and another in Dingboche. For any interested parties with special needs or circumstances, Contact Adventure Club Trek for a customized version of the trek.

    Incredible Everest Trekking Meditation Trip 2019

    Rating:

    I can't explain how lucky I was to travel with Adventure Club, I literally sprang to TripAdvisor immediately upon getting internet because Birendra Chudal, Sonam and the whole team are literally the best their is. I've been traveling to Nepal, and several other destinations for over 10 years and I have never found a harder working operation. These guys truly care about you. We had bad weather, and the airport had to close and because Birendra has over 15+ years of experience and connections we were SERIOUSLY the only people who were able to fly out! Can you imagine how incredible we felt, like VIPs because we picked the right company. People that probably paid way more than us (This is a Nepali owned company, no middlemen) were stuck in Lukla for days and we got out on Helicopter at no extra cost! Baller!!
    From the bottom of my heart I thank Birendra and Sonam for all the early mornings checking weather, the helping me haggle with store owners on everything, the helping with messed up breakfast orders and just being there 24/7 along this incredible, life changing 14 day journey. I also should say that they use the BEST porters to carry your bags. I can't wait to return and do ABC with you guys!

    My dad and I just got back from Everest Base Camp and had the absolute best guide and company.  Adventure Club  honestly made it so easy for us to customize the trip perfectly to our needs. Our guide kept us at the right pace so that we could acclimate and avoid getting sick. Dawa has summited Everest 5 times and was an expert hiker and became a best friend. Adventure Club  helped us until the very end of our trip and was very accommodating to all the changes we made throughout the hike. I have no hesitations about Sonam Adventures and would recommend it to all levels of hikers or anyone looking to be protected during the EBC hike.

    Everest Base Camp March 2016

    Rating:

    I met Birendra when I moved to Kathmandu, and he offered to arrange my trip to Everest Base Camp. It was a great experience all around - he is very willing to modify your itinerary to suit your needs, and runs a very professional and trustworthy company. He really cares that you have a great experience visiting his country, and I would highly recommend hiring him and his team! Our guide for the trek was Sonam, and he was excellent - very friendly and funny guy, and he made sure we were always comfortable. He was willing to change the pace to suit us as we wanted to either push a bit harder or take it easier.

    An incredible adventure trek to EBC and a flawless experience

    Rating:

    If you're considering trekking in Nepal, then you won't find better than Birendra and his team. Throughout the whole experience we felt very 'held' by him and his assistants' skill, knowledge and expertise. Birendra has encyclopaedic knowledge of the Everest region, having been a guide there for seventeen years. And this level of experience also means that whilst everything is brilliantly organised, it was also very relaxed. Trekking in the Everest region is obviously an incredible experience in itself, but doing so with Birendra and his team took the experience to an amazing new level. Highly, highly recommended.

    Amazing EBC trek

    Rating:

    We booked a guide and porter with Adventure Club after a friend recommended them to us after a trip last year and we were not disappointed. Everything was taken care of, from the flights, to the meals, to the transportation to and from locations. Prakash was a phenomenal guide! Made us feel like we were in control of the pace, taught us about the local culture, and took care of any issues before they arose. We loved our experience and would recommend to anyone!

    Incredible journey to EBC

    Rating:

    An incredible journey EBC Trek which was facilitated with immense care and support by Birendra and his team of guides, Prakesh and Prem They were very attentive to our wellbeing and observant of our needs, reminding us to travel at our own pace whilst encouraging our progress. Their care and attention during the entire trip, particularly for team members who experienced illness or stress, was exceptional; necessary changes to plans due to weather and health issues were organised rapidly and smoothly. If you're looking for a trek with a personal feel and a warm and professional team to support your journey, I would highly recommend Birendra and his team.

    wow , what a great experience we had . I went to Nepal with my Daughter and her boyfriend not knowing what to expect, our goal was to do EBC or ABC Treks . We decided on EBC & Birendra organised everything from go to woe. Our guide Chubby was fantastic & our porters as well. If you want a great experience in trekking then don't go past Adventure Club. We did a 12 day trek but next time it will be a 16 day trek at least as it was so fantastic !!
    If you are after a tailored trek just for you and friends or family this is the company for you as you don't need to join a group ,the trek will be tailored for you !!
    thanks again Birendra & the team, Ill be Back.

    Birendra and his team lead us on an epic journey of a lifetime, from meeting and greeting us in Kathmandu, thru every step to Everest Base Camp and safely back. Birendra and his team of guides and porters were helpful, enthusiastic and amazing throughtout, from sorting out anything we asked for at Tea Houses, a multitude of questions about Nepal, the Himalayas and generally keeping up all our spirits. We also felt safe and assured that when a group member unfortunately had altitude sickness Birendra took care of them in great detail. All in all, five stars! Adventure Club - We shall be back! :)

    Adventures of a lifetime

    Rating:

    Fabulous trip and great operator... Birendra does a really professional job of leading this trek and organizing every last detail, including extra blankets for those cold high tea houses!!  I did the trek in April and I have to call it one of the high points of my adventure filled life. The Sherpa guides and porters were fantastic and for the price charged it was excellent value. My advice if you want to to any trekking in Nepal (this is my second trek with Adventure Club) is don't book overseas operators who merely add a layer of expense and overhead to your trip, let Birendra custom plan your trek and give you the best value for money as well as the adventures of a lifetime. Honest, reliable, communicative and caring... great outfit!!

Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla

The unpredictability of the weather in mountain areas directly affects the flights to and from Lukla. The Twin Otter planes that are used for transport from and to Lukla are reasonably reliable in good weather conditions. But, the flights may be delayed or canceled due to technical problems and extreme weather conditions. To ensure you stay on your schedule in case the Twin Otter flight cancels or delays too far, we can charter you a helicopter. While the helicopter can fly at the visibility of 15,000m, the Twin Otters require 5,000m visibility, according to Nepal Civil Aviation rules.

You can pay for the helicopter in US cash, credit cards or traveler’ cheques directly to our Kathmandu office. We provide a receipt for the payment which you can present to claim the amount back from your travel insurance company. Helicopter charges range from a minimum of US$500 to a maximum of US$3500. Also, we recommend you land in Kathmandu a day before we start the trek. You have enough time to buy trekking gears and beat off the jet lag. Having a few days extra left after your trek is also an excellent way to ensure you don’t miss your international flight in case of difficulties during the trek which might lengthen your trip. It also gives you a way to beat the flight cancellation to or from Lukla in case of severe weather.

Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are traveling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. In case, the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of the trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip: such a trek in the AnnapurnaLangtang, or any other regions.

Pre-Trip Meeting

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
