Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek

Duration: 14 Days   |  16 Reviews

          Everest Base Camp Trek (5,364m/17,594ft) is the most popular trekking destination in Nepal for the adventurous lovers who see no bounds and push themselves to the highest point on earth. The journey to Everest (the highest mountain in the world) Base Camp takes you through the mind-boggling adventure of great Himalayas, streams, and forest all the way to your destination high above the clouds. In these fourteen days trek to Base Camp, you will experience intimate views of some ‘eight-thousanders’ (a group of 14 independent mountains over 8,000m) like Cho Oyu at 8102m (sixth highest), Mt.Makalu at 8481m (fifth highest), Mt. Lhotse at 8516m (fourth highest) and Mt. Everest at 8848m (first highest).

          Our journey to Mount Everest Base Camp begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2,860m/9,186 feet). It's a thrilling mountain ride and also a step closer to Everest Base Camp trip. Since altitude is a significant concern and trekking to Everest is not an easy task, we will make the first layover for acclimatization and the rest at Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,284 ft), a hustling and bustling Sherpa village which is also known as “the Gateway to Everest.”

           Khumbu region, one of our destinations in this Everest trek, is more than the glory of altitude. You will also get to enjoy views of Nangkhartshang Peak (5082m), Thamserku (6623m), AmaDablam (6856m), Nuptse (7861m), ImjaTse/Island Peak (6160m) Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,192 ft.), Pumori (7161m) and the Khumbu glacier on this trip to the Base Camp. In addition to the revered mountains, you will also get to see the culture and way of life of the Sherpas (the bravest climbers in the world and natives of the region).

         Everest Base Camp lies in the Sagarmatha National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) which has an impressive variety of flora and fauna and Buddhist monasteries, all of which you’d be passing through on this trek. This journey to EBC leads to the top of the world, filling you with thrills and a sense of adventure at first, and with satisfaction and accomplishment by the end. The friendly Sherpas and their villages, yak processions, views of some of the tallest mountains in the world, Dudhkoshi (River of milk) trail, magnolia and rhododendron forests, and the smell of Himalayan incense paired with morning prayers that echo the region will give you an experience as you’ve never had before.

A 360-degree panoramic spread of mountains like Nuptse (7,861m), AmaDablam (6,812 m), Lobuche (6,119m) and Everest(8,848m) will mesmerize you. The views of magnificent Himalaya from EBC make not only the best experience and memories but also great videos and photos!

 

How difficult is Everest Base Camp trek and what physical fitness is required?

Just because it is the Base Camp of the world’s highest mountain, people think trekking to Everest Base Camp is only for trained climbers. However, that is a misconception. Everest Base Camp Trekking is thrilling, adventurous and also achievable by most people with an average level of physical fitness. The trek is moderately difficult. The routes are well laid out: there are tea houses (lodging & dining) along the way and people are friendly. However, Everest Base Camp trek starts at an elevation of 2,860 m and goes as high as 5,555m. So, the only real challenge here is the altitude which can cause Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS). The difficulty level of the trek depends on your physical fitness level as well. No matter how fit you are, acclimatization is vital as it helps you avoid AMS

 

What are the best seasons to Trek Everest Base Camp?

In Autumn and Spring:  Mid-September to Mid-December is the best time of the year to trek to Everest Base Camp. The weather remains stable with crystal clear mountain views. However, the nights can be cold as the temperature drops to the freezing point. Carry extra sleeping bags and you are all ready for the exciting trip.

In Winter:  December to February. During these periods, the Mount Everest is covered by snow. It is the best time of year to trek to EBC for those who prefer traveling to the snow land!

    EBC Trek - Unforgettable Journey

    Rating:

    What an amazing experience! It would be impossible to put into words. The views, the people, the food, the villages we stayed, unforgettable. What a special place!
    I feel so grateful to have met and trekked with our guide Birendra, one of the best people on the planet. Not to mention he is one of the coolest and funniest guys with a huge heart. He is a lifetime friend for sure. I can't imagine the trip being anywhere near what it was without him there to lead us.

    I know that he's been in the industry for over 20 years and I don't think that anyone is more connected. For example, the airport runways were shut down and Birendra personally called the owner of a helicopter company and got our group off of the mountain without much delay at all. I know that other people were stranded there for days. He simply goes above and beyond the call of duty in every sense. I would trust my family and friends with him, he's one of the best guides I've ever had. I can't say enough good things about this trek or this company. I hope you get the chance to experience it all for yourself!!

    Incredible experience!

    Rating:

    I joined a group of Birendra's to trek Everest Base camp. The group had hikers with all experience levels. I was blown away by how well Birendra and Sonam were able to tend to the needs of everyone in the group, make sure we were all comfortable and say, and some how always answer our 10 thousand questions. I am so thankful to have been with such an amazing company for this huge accomplishment. They were so encouraging the whole way, and the last day I was sick and struggling and Sonam refused to let me quit. He even continuously asked to take my bag, until I finally gave in (which made a world of a difference for that last hour! Thank you Sonam!!!!) 
    If you are debating working with this company, just know that they will do anything to make sure you have the experience you're looking for, all while feeling safe! Thanks again for your hard work!! Looking forward to our next adventure!

    Amazing hiking trip at the Everest

    Rating:

    In November of 2018 we had an unforgettable 150 km long hike in the Everest region. It was my very first visit in the Himalayas. During the whole tour we stayed in the houses of the local peoples (sherpas). It was very impressive to see how these kind hearted people live their everydays. The complete trip was perfect organized. I am already planing my next Himalayas trip at the Annapurna and i'm gonna surely choose the Adventure Club Treks and Expedition Ltd.

    Arrive as a tourist and leave this magical world as a friend. That was my main impression when I visited Nepal first and second time. Whole country is extremely wonderful having thousands and thousands beautiful landscapes to explore but a prossefional guide is highly recommended. I feel myself very lucky and blessed I could lead by Birendra, the owner of this company. His respectful, open-minded, flexible, helpful personality and very professional way of working made my EBC trek unforgettable. I became addicted to mountains and Nepal too thus I plan my next journey to Kanchenhunga region in 2019. No question about my choice regarding trekking company. :)

    Trek to Everest Base camp

    Rating:

    The quiet confidence of Birendra and his team of guides and porters, as they guide and support you throughout your trek, leaves you feeling incredibly looked after, supported, educated & entertained. From the moment that you wake and have your bag packed they have quietly and efficiently whisked your unwanted kilos on to the next destination, while other members of the team bring breakfast and hot drinks. Then they guide you carefully and expertly over the many different terrains that you will encounter throughout each day. They look after the front middle and rear of the group equally. I will without question employ Birendra and his team for my next trip and have already recommended him to my friends and acquaintances.

    Amazing experience

    Rating:

    This trek to Everest Base Camp was my first trek of any kind - and I wasn't disappointed! The location is, of course, stunning. So exciting just to be at the roof of the world. But the whole experience was enhanced by Birendra and his assistants, Prakesh and Prem. I found them to be extremely professional in relation to the organisation of the trip and, on a personal level, unfailingly helpful and courteous. I felt myself to be in very good hands, safe and well looked after. No hesitation in recommending Adventure Club.

    Base camp trek

    Rating:

    A group of ten of us went to Everest Base Camp with Adventure Club in April and it was such a great experience. I mean, the base camp trek is always going to be great regardless of how you get there but for us it was Sonam, Bhim and Kali, our guides, who made it incredible. I felt so looked after and they were fun, friendly and really patient with all of us. By the time we got to where we were staying for the night our rooms were already booked and we just had to sit down and order food. No hassle at all. The porters were great too and they only carry two bags which, for me, is really important. We saw too many porters carrying way too much weight on this trek and it means a lot to me that Adventure Club treat their porters fairly. Our flight to Lukla was cancelled twice due to weather and Birendra made sure we were taken back to our hotel safely, got our flights rebooked and made sure we were picked up on time in the morning. He dealt with everything, we didn't have to lift a finger. Absolute professional. All in all it's a brilliant company who will look after you from start to finish. All you have to do is show up and walk.

    Solo trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar

    Rating:

    My solo trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar turned out to be the Adventure of a Lifetime, thanks to the excellent planning and assistance of Birendra Chudal, and the superb guide he assigned to me, Badurai, whom I called "Mr. Rai." From the very beginning, there was excellent communication with Birendra, so that he was able to take care of my domestic flight to Lukla, the entrance pass and the TIMS card, as well as numerous other details. He provided me with all the support and assistance I needed, which made life so much easier for me as I had never been to Nepal before. This included help with transportation and lodging -- I even got to meet his lovely family, which was an unexpected pleasure. As for my guide, Mr. Rai, he was totally committed to my safety and comfort, always staying with me on the trail, assisting with lodgings as we made our way from village to village, and providing help in ways too numerous to mention, always with a cheerful attitude and never a word of complaint. If I were to return to Nepal for further treks the first thing I would do is contact Birendra, whose knowledge and professional experience enabled me to enjoy a marvelous adventure without any significant problems (well, we did get a little bit of snow, but fortunately not enough to prevent us from reaching our dual goals of EBC and Kala Patthar!). NAMASTE to both Birendra and Mr. Rai -- I could not have done it without your help!

    Everest Base camp

    Rating:

    My friend and I did Everest Base camp trek with Adventure Club Trek in November 2013. It was one of my dreams that came true last year. Adventure Club was recommended to me by few of my friends who had gone to EBC many times with Adventure Club. I found Birendra and his team very professional, friendly and very well organized. My guide. Pemba and the porter were very friendly and professional. I have many friends who have had trip to Nepal with different companies. Based on what I heard from them, Birendra organized the tour with a price less than other companies with the same level of services. During my trek Birendra was always accessible by phone at any time during the trek (day and night time), and managed any changes to the trek plane based on my request or other reason. Unfortunately I got mountain sickness before getting to Base Camp and I had to go back to Kathmandu. Birendra rearranged everything (new porter, rescheduling flight ticket and…) immediately. When I went back to Kathmandu I had extra time waiting for my friend to com back from EBC, so I asked him to arrange a trip to Chitwan Jungle National Park and beautiful city of Pokhara. I spent few unforgettable days resting and sightseeing in beautiful hotels in Chitwan and Pokara. Next year I will go again to Nepal for another trek and also visiting Tibet, and I definitely will do my trip with Birendra who is not only a company owner for me any more but also a good trusted and reliable friend. I recommend Nepal travelers to try their trip with Adventure Club Trek.

    Everest Base Camp in the snowstorm

    Rating:

    When I finally reached Everest Base Camp in the snowstorm, a dream has come true. I was sick and exhausted, close to be choppered down, but I made it. And I made it because I had great company and support. And I knew I was in the good hands of Birendra and his amazing team. Lovely people, friendly and always ready to help. Always ready to bring you another ginger tea, to carry your daypack or just talk and entertain. Everything was organised and taken care of. Our only job was to carry on trekking, taking one further step and one more... until we reached our destination.
    It was an experience and a trip for a lifetime and I will definitely go back. Probably the most memorable moment was when I first saw Mt Everest from above Namche bazar. It was from a fair distance but it was spectacular. 
    I got to know more about the Nepalese culture, about the lovely Nepalese people and I fell in love with those mountains. I am looking forward to go back and join Birendra's group again. And I can only recommend to everyone who loves adventure and enjoys great company to do the same :)

    Everest Base Camp trek

    Rating:

    Birendra and his team made this a superb two weeks. He and his guides created a wonderful family atmosphere. Everyone was friendly and happy to help and answer questions and queries. Birendra's knowledge of Nepalese history and culture was huge bonus. I felt safe at all times and confident in the team. Furthermore, Birendra looks after his team (guides and porters) well, so you can be sure they are well cared for on the trip - something which is of great importance to me. I throughly recommend Adventure Club Treks to anyone no matter what age or ability.

    Great service

    Rating:

    I have used this company twice so far and everything was good and worked out very well. They provide great service. First time when I went to the Everest b.c by myself I asked for a guide from them. Ram was good fun and helped in everything. Enjoyed his company. Plus I booked my rafting and chitwan N.Park trip through them. The price was really good, reasonable and all the service, hotels, accommodations, safari and rafting trip was an amazing adventure and worked out well.

    2nd time I went with a group of people to Everest b.c and used their service. The company provided the same expected ,perfect service. The guides, porters were very friendly and provided great service. We felt very safe between their hands. Birendra the owner of the company and our main guide just proved how to do a great job, taken care all the time and dealt with the rescuing things very well. 4 people got sick (altitude) during the trek and he did a professional job (looked after people, arranged the helicopters and helped during rescuing) Definitely can recommend them to everyone.

    Time of my life

    Rating:

    Thanks Adventure Club for this great trek to Everest Base Camp, everything went perfect and I had the time of my life! As a solo traveller, Adventure Club offered me to join a group to go to the Everest Base Camp so I could enjoy with more people and also reduce the cost of the trek. The services offered by our guides and porters was excellent, very professional people and also nice and fun to travel with. I felt safe and taken care all the time and any minor problem such as health issue (so normal up there) were dealt with great professionalism and care. I really enjoyed this trek and can absolutely recommend anyone to do a trek with Adventure Club.

    Everest base Camp trek

    Rating:

    Travelling solo I saw the value of having a guide for to do the Everest base Camp trek, and am very glad to have found Advernture Club. 
    I booked with the company before making the trip from Australia to Nepal and in the lead up the manager was happy to answer any questions I had. There are so so many treking/adventure companies when in Kathmandu, and after chatting to lots of other trekkers and their experiences, I can vouch that this is definately great value, a very safe (fully registered, insured, experienced staff) and reliable way to see the Himilayas.
    A very professional company, they provided me with one of the greatest experiences of my life, and now one of my most treasured memories!! 
    I will definitely use them next time!

    Pefect tour

    Rating:

    I travelled by myself to Nepal and I was lucky to find this company. They are totally reliable. The most important when you travel is to find people that work with tourism and you can fully trust on them. This is possible with this team. It is not necessary to say that I didn't have any problem, I went to Annapurna region 8 days, and then to the Everest Base Camp. Everything was perfect. And its owner is a special person. Take a time to sit and chat with him, he will, for sure, find the pefect tour and option for you.

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$2500. 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.
