Since the required information for this trekking journey is not so vast. Every trekker in the present era of the internet appears to be very informed about the services and amenities available along the Everest base camp trek route.

Right after the first successful expedition in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, many trekkers stepped up for the grand journey to experience the iconic view of the Mighty Everest. Every year more than 10,000 trekkers around the world visit Nepal to do the Everest Base Camp trek.

The base camp is located at a higher elevation of 5545m, which slightly makes it harder to ascent than other treks in the Himalayas. But, surprisingly it is not as difficult as it sounds.

Instead of trekking, if we talk about conquering the summit of Everest, we have to say that is a daunting task that requires a high level of fitness and trekking experience.

Undoubtedly, many adventurers have the dream of reaching the Everest summit, but due to a lack of climbing experience and oxygen at the higher altitude, lots of adventurers cannot conquer the Everest summit. Hence, there is nothing to worry about. Individuals who have a standard level of fitness, less experience, less money, and can see the great picture unfold before their eyes by joining this great Everest base camp trek journey.

With flexible-length trips available to suit all kinds of trekkers and climbers looking for an exciting challenge and rewarding experience, it’s no surprise that the popularity of the Everest base camp trek is continuing to grow even more.

The popularity of the Everest base camp trek

Now as we all know, the Everest base camp trek is unquestionably the most popular worldwide. But why, you might ask? Why is it so popular? Well, the tallest peak in the world is located there, and obviously, many people want to see it. But, we doubt this is the only thing this trek might be famous for. Apart from that, you get to explore the unique culture of the Sherpa people who have been living there for 500 years.

With the Background of Tibetan Buddhist culture, the Sherpa people have created a legacy through which trekkers will immediately connect with the region and obtain a lasting impression on their whole life.

Buddhist Monasteries, Stupas, Prayer wheels, Prayer flags, Tibetan art, and Monuments are the distinctive heritages that will greatly influence the trekkers traveling to this region. Besides this, there are also other numerous reasons why this region is popular among trekkers.

Therefore to give you clear details, we have uncovered the main highlights of the journey before going on to the following sections to heighten your anticipation for the Everest base camp trek-

Trip Highlights:

  • Amazing Mount Everest view from the Grand Base camp and sunrise view from Kala Patthar (The highest Point of the Trek).
  • Thrilling flight to Tenzing Hillary Airport.
  • Discover the variety of flora and fauna in Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO-declared World Heritage site.
  • Visit Thyangboche Monastery (1916 A.D), one of the oldest monasteries in the Everest region.
  • See the Khumbu Glacier, known as the highest glacier on the earth (4900m).
  • Views of Mt. Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, Kongde-Ri, Thamserku, and Taboche up close in addition to Mount Everest.
  • Experience the Sherpa people's wonderful culture and hospitality.
  • Acclimatization and Exploration at the Enticing Sherpa town - Namche Bazaar.
  • Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS) friendly itinerary.

So, where does the trek to Everest base camp begin?

As the name suggests, the ultimate destination of this trek is the Base of Everest. Mt.Everest, the tallest peak in the world is located in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal. When it comes to the location of the Himalayan region, Mount Everest and 20 other mountains are all located in the Mahalangur Himalayan Range.

There are two base camps on this mountain, one is situated on the southern side and another on the northern side. Markedly for trekking, the most famous base camp is the southern base camp, which is situated in Nepal.

The northern base camp is also available for trekking but it isn’t as famous as the southern camp. And yeah, your journey with us will also follow the route to the southern base camp along with many other trekkers on the way.

Further, if we have to introduce the starting point of the Everest base camp trek then it has to be the Lukla Village. After a thrilling flight from the Capital city, you will immediately arrive at Lukla Airport, which can be called the most unique and dangerous airport in the world. Eventually, our Everest base camp trek adventure will then begin from Lukla and pass through the beautiful villages of the Khumbu region.

When should you do this trek for the best experience?

Many individuals assume that the summer months are the ideal time to do the Everest base camp trek. Yet that is false. Both the height of Everest Base Camp and the route to get there are pretty high. So for that reason, it thus never really feels hot in this region. However, throughout the year, there is a considerable variation in the region’s temperatures, rainfall, and snowfall levels.

With years of experience trekking to Everest base camp and based upon the feedback and fulfillment of the trekkers, our team personally prefers to set out on the trek to the Everest region in March, April, October, and November. These months lie in the two main trekking seasons. These seasons are pre-monsoon season (March, April, May) and post-monsoon season (October, November).


Generally, March month sees fewer people on the trail. This month’s first few days often see cooler weather. As the days go by, the sights will get clearer and the air tends to be crisper than ever before. This is the reason behind starting the Everest Base camp trek this month, but the preparation should be done by packing the essential cold-weather gear.

Subsequently, as soon as April arrives, trekkers start to fill in the guesthouses and lodges on the route. This month is likely to experience more stable weather than March. As trekkers continue on their adventure, the tracks fill up with both humans and animals carrying the backpack.

You will therefore be trekking alongside other like-minded individuals who arrive at this time from different parts of the world. Also, on the base camp, you could see a couple of climbers preparing for their ascent to the Summit of Everest this month.

May is the last month of the spring season. This month initiates the summer season. However, the climate in the initial days of the month will remain to be pleasant and the sky will likely be clear, which offers trekkers an amazing experience. However, as soon as the month’s midway mark approaches, clarity of the scene will decrease after the clouds start to form in the sky. Flight delays may also be brought on by frequent wind gusts and poor visibility. As a result, while trekking in May, trekkers have to exercise some caution.

For further information, you can read our Everest base camp trek in the Spring season blog.


Another fantastic time of year for trekking in the Everest region is in autumn (September to November). Clear skies, a cool, dry climate, and stable weather are all present in this season. The starting month of September could be still affected by the monsoon season. So, it could affect the journey with random rainfall causing delays for you.

We recommend you trek in September if you are flexible enough to extend the Everest base camp trek for some days. However, during September the landscape in the lower section is lovely and vibrant, and the weather is often sunny during the daytime.

After September, comes October, which is typically the busiest month for the Everest base camp trek. We consider October as the best time of all of the 12 months. The reason for this month’s busyness is the pleasant weather and dry weather across the entire path, which makes walking much more convenient than ever before. Thus, it will be a good idea for you to reserve your seats on the journey far in advance.

As soon as time passes by, the season starts to transition from autumn to winter in November. The Crowd starts to decrease making the paths more quiet and open. The temperature starts to slightly decrease whereas the day remains warmer and clearer and nights get a little chillier.

November will continue to be dry, with low levels of humidity and rare occurrences of rainfall. Hence, this month will also give you a wonderful Everest base camp trek experience overall.

So, Lastly, you can choose to trek Everest base camp between these months without doubting or thinking of any risks in terms of weather.

Is the EBC trek as Dangerous as it Sounds?

There are indeed certain difficulties associated with indulging in this high-altitude trek. But surprisingly, we want to tell you that the trek to Everest Base Camp is safer than other treks. This trek has been completed by trekkers with ages ranging from 15 to 70.

We can say with certainty that anyone with a high level of ambition and resilience can complete the Everest base camp trek. Hence, you need a little bit of trekking expertise, if not, hiking experience, to go out on this trek. Having some prior trekking experience will prove extremely helpful to you.

Preparation for Everest base camp trek


Every trekker is expected to set a schedule for their arrival. Trekkers will need to be physically and psychologically prepared within those days before the journey to deal with the probable obstacles that come along with this two-week Everest base camp trek journey.

The right level of physical fitness is crucial for mountain trekking. If they want to have a nice time and a hassle-free trip, trekkers must exercise and be fit. As we talk about the type of exercise, it must include cardiovascular and strength exercises. For Cardiovascular endurance, you can do running, walking, step walking, and aerobic exercises.

Squats, jumping squats, lunges, side lunges, shoulder presses, pull-ups, push-ups, and step-ups are among the exercises you can do for strength. Further, your endurance and leg strength will be important while engaging in the Everest base camp trek as you also have to carry the backpack with gear and items. So for that, we recommend you put the weights on your back and perform some of these exercises.

In addition to these exercises, you also require some hiking experience. For this, you can perform short hikes near your location. We encourage you to do this hike slowly and steadily, with bold dedication. By doing short hikes, you may become used to walking large distances and understand what it’s like to go for hours through the hills.

After the Successful journey, you’ll be able to tell how strong your body is and whether you can start and finish the Everest base camp trek journey. After finally doing a couple of short hikes around your area without any hassle, it will make sure you can head out for this grand journey. For a training plan, you can check out this interesting EBC trek training plan organized by Alzheimer’s Society.

Mental Preparedness

Trekkers should know Mental stamina is equally important as much as physical stamina on the Everest base camp trek. There are days on this trek that are comparatively tough which will test your mental endurance. For that reason, you need to keep your mental state on the right track.

While trekking, the one main enemy that could deteriorate your mental health is altitude sickness. To avoid this enemy, you have to keep yourself hydrated and eat nutritious foods on time. If any kind of symptoms are seen, then you should instantly tell the guide and make a descent. If it doesn’t work, you can use medications to stop the further actions of the sickness.

Another main thing to prepare for this trek is the weather. As this is a high-altitude trek, surrounding conditions are not always possible to predict. You just have to accept and act according to the situation. So, it will be better for you to imagine the unlikeable conditions while preparing and you will have to immerse your mental state in such kind of situation for a while.

While trekking you might find it challenging to remain motivated and stick to the regular training schedules for a few months before you go trekking. To prepare for the Everest base camp trek, we highly suggest you take the assistance of the partners who are heading for the journey with you. The best thing you could do is to sync your workout plans with them.

Further, to strengthen your mental state you could go on your outdoor walking session imagining that you are on the path of the Everest Base Camp. By doing this, you will always be striving to push yourself physically to new limits as you head out for your training, and you’ll stay more motivated as you make more progress.

The same thing will happen in your Everest base camp trek journey. As you ascend more and more height with ease, you will be likely to enjoy more and more. So these things are very important to keep in mind when preparing for the trek.

Appropriate acclimatization plan

Trek to Everest Base Camp ramps up to a stunning height of 5,644 meters. As you approach this height, breathing gets harder and harder as the altitude rises. With us, you don’t have to worry about the plan. We implement an acclimatization-friendly itinerary that will let you continue your trek in a gradual manner.

Despite the proper acclimatization, we want to let you know that nobody is specifically targeted by altitude sickness; it can affect people of all ages. Even fit and young people are affected by it. Thus, the symptoms must be immediately identified and quickly dealt with. If left untreated, it will likely put a stop to your journey and may prove deadly.

So, if this is your first high-altitude trip, we highly urge you to acclimatize by trekking in other regions first by preparing for it. You can pick any ideal higher spot for trekking in your own country. Or, if you decide to travel to the Himalayas, you may wish to opt for the Annapurna base camp trek or the Langtang Valley trek.

Don’t make your bag pack heavy

Making your load heavy is not a wise decision for any trek, not just the Everest base camp trek. Just bring what you need so that you can avoid adding too much weight to your backpack. The weight of the backpack and your carrying capacity determine how comfortably you can travel.

Even if you hire a porter, it is pointless to bring random items on this trek. So, if you choose to carry your backpack without any help from a porter it should weigh no more than 5 to 7 kg while you’re trekking. To know which of the items to include in your backpack you can look at our EBC trek guide for tips.

By Preparing all these things we will make sure that you are ready to head out for this great adventure. After finally fixing the departure date we will be excited to welcome you for this amazing Everest base camp trek. So here, for now, we will briefly explain our Itinerary from day 1. We will ensure that this 14-day adventure will end quickly for you by keeping things enjoyable the whole time.

Note – We assume this trek journey is 14 days. But things may not go as planned and the standard 14-day itinerary could extend to more than that. Several factors such as unfavorable weather, flight delays, unanticipated natural conditions, political strikes, Government regulations, etc. Furthermore, if you are planning for the extra days of the tour inside the country along with this trekking journey, then we request you manage the dates of the flights while booking the trips.

Lukla Flight Information:

The Lukla Flight will take place in different locations in the peak seasons. For the months (March, April, May, October, and November) the flight will take place from Ramechaap instead of Kathmandu. Due to the traffic expansion, the flight has been shifted to Ramechaap airport, which is just a 4-hour drive away from Kathmandu. However, in the off seasons like – January, February, June, July, August, September, and December, the flights are operated from Kathmandu. Besides this information, if any of the flights are not operated then the airline companies are responsible for the decision.

Mainly the flights to Lukla are cancelled because of bad weather conditions, obstructions in the runway, or busy air traffic. If the flight gets delayed for any reason, the continuity of the flight will be then dependent on the conditions. So, we advise you to pre-manage your whole trip by adding some extra days. This will help you to make the international flight on time.

A perfect higher-elevation diet gives you added energy and lowers your risk of getting the infamous Acute Mountains Sickness. We thus highly prioritize fresh food and ensure you that the food we provide during the Everest base camp trek is healthy and balanced.

Contrary to what many people believe, teahouses on the Everest base camp trek provide a wide selection of hot meals, including both Western and Nepali, Indian, and Tibetan options. Trekkers will eat three nutritious meals every day. Lunch will be served in the teahouses and eateries along the trails, and breakfast and dinner will be prepared at the lodge where you will be staying.


Reviewing the Breakfast choices, you will have toast, Pancakes, bread, porridge, and eggs with their different varieties. With these various breakfast options, we are confident that you will be prepared and have energy for the trek until the lunch period.


As soon as noon arrives, we will head to another teahouse on the route. Our lunch primarily consists of Carbohydrate-rich foods. On the menu, we have different options like rice meals, noodles, Momos, pizza, pasta, Spaghetti, sandwiches, Potatoes, and Meat items. These are the general items found on the route, as the altitude varies, the items will also vary.

Despite the presence of all these food items, Dal-Bhat-Tarkari seems to be everyone’s favorite of both locals and as well as foreign visitors. Trekkers coming to Nepal hardly ever skip out on the classic Nepalese dish Daal-Bhat-Tarkari-Achar (boiled rice-lentil soup-vegetables-pickle). You definitely should try it for lunch. Also, make sure you try some special sherpa meals for lunch in addition to these items as well.


The dinner will be served where we will be staying overnight. The delicious and heavy dinner will fuel trekkers for the following day’s trek. Basically, Dinner options will be the same as the lunch options. Before dinner, you can take soup items as a starter. After that, you could choose any options from the menu for dinner same as for lunch. After dinner, you also can have some dessert items.


Note: To keep yourself hydrated while on the trek, you must consume plenty of water and other liquids. We suggest that you consume at least 3–4 liters of liquids daily. This helps in solving any minor issues and altitude sickness.

On the Everest base camp trek, there are several options for hot, soft, and hard drinks. Hot drinks such as Black tea, Milk tea, ginger tea, masala tea, green tea, black coffee, milk coffee, hot lemon, and hot chocolate are available.

Soft drinks such as Coke, Fanta, sprite, canned beer, can juice, and hard drinks such as whisky, Rum, and wine are also available. Even though it is available, alcoholic beverages are a big no if you are doing this trek. These kinds of drinks are the main cause of altitude sickness as they quickly dehydrate the body. Therefore be careful to avoid drinking alcohol for a healthy and fit Everest base camp trek.

The spring and fall seasons are the ideal times to do the Everest Base Camp trek. Because of the great weather and trail conditions, these are regarded as the busiest seasons for trekking in the Everest region. Further details regarding the two seasons are provided below:

  1. The greatest season for trekking in the Everest region is in the spring, from March to May. With pleasant days and cool evenings, the weather is gentle and consistent.

  2. Another fantastic time of year for hiking in the Everest region is autumn (September to November). Clear skies, a cool, dry climate, and stable weather are all present. Autumnal foliage covers the trail, and the mountain views are equally magnificent.

Both of these seasons include pleasant temperatures and dry pathways, which make hiking more convenient. Nonetheless, the paths may be congested and the tea houses and lodges may be fully booked due to the popularity of these seasons. Thus, it’s a good idea to reserve your position on the journey far in advance.

There are other seasons when it is possible to do Everest Base Camp trek, but the weather is less favorable.

Although there have sadly been fatalities on the Everest Base Camp trek in the past, it is crucial to be informed of the potential risks and take the necessary safety procedures to reduce the likelihood of mishaps and injuries.

The most frequent reasons for fatalities on the hike include avalanches, falls, and altitude sickness. Low oxygen levels at higher elevations can produce sickness, which can have dangerous side effects such as high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) or high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE). It’s important to acclimatize appropriately and get medical help if any altitude sickness symptoms manifest.

On the hike, accidents and falls are also possible, especially given the rocky, steep terrain. Trekkers should take the necessary safety precautions, such as donning suitable clothing and using trekking poles and experienced guides as their guides.

Avalanches can also be dangerous, especially in the springtime when snowfall is more likely. Trekkers should be aware of weather and avalanche forecasts and, if at all feasible, stay away from high-risk regions.

Many trekkers complete the Everest Base Camp trek each year despite the possible risks by adhering to the necessary safety precautions and instructions.

A solid level of physical fitness is necessary for the physically demanding Everest Base Camp trek. Each day of the trek requires several hours of walking, frequently over rocky, steep terrain, and at high elevations where the air is thinner and the oxygen content is lower. Consequently, it’s crucial to get in shape before starting this walk.

The following are some of the physical prerequisites for the Everest Base Camp trek:

  1. Cardiovascular Fitness: As the trek entails several hours of daily walking, it’s critical to be in good cardiovascular shape. Your endurance can be enhanced by engaging in regular cardio exercises like jogging, hiking, cycling, or swimming.
  2. Strength Training: You will be trekking on rocky, steep terrain while carrying a rucksack during the expedition. To take on the challenges of the Everest base camp trek, you must have strong legs, a stable core, and an upper body. Exercises that increase strength include squats, lunges, planks, and push-ups.
  3. Mental toughness: The Everest Base Camp trek can be extremely taxing, therefore it’s critical to possess this quality in order to persevere in the face of exhaustion and agony. By engaging in regular exercise, meditation, and visualization, one can acquire mental toughness.
  4. Acclimatization to Altitude: As altitude sickness poses a serious risk during the Everest base camp trek, it’s critical to do it well. Therefore, the best approach to acclimate is to trek gradually, stop frequently, and drink plenty of water.

Hence, before starting the Everest base camp trek, it is advised that you speak with a doctor, especially if you have any current medical ailments or worries. In order to gradually increase your fitness level and make sure you are appropriately prepared for the demands of the journey, it is also crucial to begin training well in advance.

Here are several choices for doing an Everest Base Camp trek with a group:

  1. Join a Guided Tour: During the Everest Base Camp trek, a number of trekking companies provide guided excursions. These excursions often include a guide, porter, lodging, meals, and extras like transportation, permits, and equipment rental. If you’re new to trekking, want a more planned and hassle-free trip, or prefer the safety and direction of a trained guide, joining a guided Everest base camp trek will be one of the perfect choices. Guided Everest base camp price might vary based on the operator, the time of year, and the route, but it is typically more expensive than trekking alone.
  2. Locate a Hiking Partner: You might try looking for a trekking buddy online or through social media if you prefer to walk alone but want to split the costs and the experience with someone. Online networks, Facebook groups, and forums let travelers and hikers with similar interests connect. If you want a more intimate and real experience, more flexibility and freedom, or are on a tight budget, finding a trekking partner for Everest base camp can be an excellent choice.
  3. Join a Group Tour: You can join a group tour that is organized by a trekking business or a travel agency if you don’t want to go on a guided trip but still want to trek with a group. These excursions typically come with lodging, meals, transportation, and a local guide, but they provide you more freedom and flexibility than a guided tour. If you want to meet other travelers, split the costs, and have some support and backup. Therefore, joining a group Everest base camp trek journey can be an excellent alternative.

No matter the choice you select, it’s crucial to conduct thorough research, evaluate the costs and services, and pick a recognized and trustworthy company. To guarantee a secure and successful Everest base camp trek, it’s also crucial to plan ahead, acclimate appropriately, and adhere to all safety regulations and requirements.

The marvelous natural beauty of Himalayan range, the sunrise at Lobuche and the friendly little kids at Namche Bazaar…unforgettable. On the seventh day of trekking, about 4000m, I got acute mountain sickness, Birendra was taking good care of me and trekking slowly and slowly. He tried to make me relax and adjusted to the attitude, however, I had to ride on a helicopter back to Kathmandu before the sickness gets worst. I only took two days rest and resume my journey. Birendra arranged a substitute trip to Chitwan for me, he is such a caring friend. I would strongly recommend my friends to trek with Birendra and Mission Himalaya Treks team.


    completing the trek is quite an achievement

    Thinking about going for a trek to Mt Everest Base Camp is a task and completing the trek is quite an achievement. Thanks to Birendra and Nima(Our guide) for helping us complete this trek. They made it look easy and comfortable. The memories of base camp and Mount Everest will stay for long. I had a blast.

    Good knowledge about the mountains.

    Thank you so much, Birendra for answering to all my questions before the trek, in Kathmandu just before starting the trek and discussing after the trek. You were a great help. Our guide Nima was excellent. He is very well mannered, well experienced and he has very good knowledge of the mountains. He was really helping, encouraging and big support. I am thankful to him for his sweetness while we used to have our meal. He used to order food, bring water for us, and then winding up. So, overall I had a great experience because of their service, prompt replies, and actions. Thank you Birendra and Nima and the whole team, including our Sherpa Neer Kumar, a sweet young guy.

    Nothing was a problem during the trip

    Amazing adventure made the extra special trek by funny trekking guide Kulung Rajj. Raj was kind, knowledgable, caring and welfare and very strong in terms of help to carry luggage even we have another porter. Trek was well organized by mission Himalaya and nothing was a problem during the trip except we tired a lot. we all would recommend this trek especially if you are interest to go Nepal best trekking. Do not choose other company mission Himalaya was the best of best. Tks Birendra for your arrangements and thanks raj to guide us., Everest is the best trekking in Nepal. The budget is also reasonable.
