Trip Overview

Everest Base Camp Trek is on the buckle list of many hikers. Every year lots of trekkers around the world visit Nepal to trek EBC. The base camp is located at a higher elevation of 5545m. But, surprisingly it is not so difficult to conquer this trek. Narrated by many as the path to paradise, the trail of Everest Base Camp has no meagreness of charismata throughout the way.

Enchanting mountains, diverse fauna and flora, the world’s biggest glacier, unique Sherpa culture, hundreds of Buddhist monasteries, stupas, and the Tibetan arts make your journey highly heart-touching. Further, the artistic Buddhist's cravings appear way more compelling on this trek route.

The prayer wheels and vibrant prayer flags are sure to steal most EBC trekker's attention. Creating appealing scenery, even the Yaks and Horses on the EBC trek route gives trekkers another genuine reason to opt for this mind-boggling EBC trek.

Trekking to EBC without encountering suspension bridges, it's not going to happen in the trail of EBC. Experiencing the thrill, you have to cross several suspension bridges.

Continuing the trek towards the higher elevation ignoring everything relish the beauty of Buckwheat and Potato farming. As the Everest Base Camp Trek route lies inside the Sagarmatha National Park, you will also get to observe varieties of flora and fauna on this trek.

On top of that, the heartwarming hospitality of the locals of Khumbu makes your Everest Base Camp Trek more reminiscing and exciting. The climax of this trekking is to see the 360-degree view of various mountains, including the worlds’ highest Mt Everest (8848m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m), and Mt. Makalu (8462m) from Kala Patthar (5545m). The highest point that we can reach while joining this trek is Kalapatthar.

Conquering the summit of Everest is really a daunting task and requires a high level of fitness and trekking experience. Despite having the dream to reach the Everest summit, due to lack of climbing experience and oxygen in the higher altitude, lots of tourists cannot conquer the Everest summit.

However, those who have the dream to enjoy the beauty of Everest from close and have a normal fitness level, and are less experienced, can opt for the Everest Base Camp Trek. We have a 95% succession rate to reach Everest Base Camp, so you can join us to complete a safe and happy Trek.

In planning the itinerary, we have considered the pace of ascending and rest days to ensure that you can acclimatize to the high altitudes and enjoy your trekking most. If you like longer trekking, we can start from Jiri which is just an 8-hour driving away from Kathmandu. This route enables you to acclimatize the high altitudes slowly but you need a longer holiday.

If you want a greater challenge, we can offer you EBC trekking with the Gokyo Lake and Chola Pass. The easiest and shortest way to EBC is by an exciting return flight between Kathmandu and Lukla.

If you cannot trek such long trekking and hiking in EBC you can book our packages of Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with Landing.

Best time for trekking to the Everest Base Camp:

There are two main trekking seasons in Nepal Himalayas. We called them the Spring and Autumn season. Spring and Autumn are also sometimes referred to as pre and post-monsoon respectively.

Spring lasts from March to May in Nepal and is considered one of the best times to trek Everest Base Camp. The moderate temperature and stable weather during Spring offer you great visibility of mountains and the surrounding environment. Further walking along the trails full of rhododendron and other wildflowers leaves you with an awesome trekking experience.

Speaking of Autumn, it is the peak season for trekking in Nepal. It lies between September to December. In this season the weather remains stable and the sky remains clear so it is the most possible time to fly from and to Kathmandu, Lukla.

June July and August are the worst months for trekking in Everest Base Camp. Because at that time the unstable weather may cause the cancellation of several flights. Furthermore, clouds cover the snowy Himalayan ranges as a result of which many tourists cannot see the Himalayan ranges properly.

December to February is the cold season and snow season. A person who likes peace and quiet can choose this season but it's very cold.

Everest Base camp trek route:

There are no direct roadways to reach Everest Base Camp from Kathmandu. To reach Everest Base Camp you have to first take a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From Lukla, you can head towards Phakding to Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is the gateway to most of the trekking in the Everest Region of Nepal. After taking the acclimatization rest at Namche, you can join the normal Everest Base Camp trek route.

If you want to avoid the Lukla flight and prefer more trekking adventures, then you can take a drive from Kathmandu to Jiri. From Jiri, you can join the classic Everest region trekking trail to reach Lukla. After reaching Lukla you can follow the normal traditional EBC trekking route. However, you need some extra days to reach Lukla from Jiri.

If you are willing to reach Everest Base Camp by crossing the Cho La Pass, Renzo La Pass, or Kong-ma La Pass you have to follow the routes other than the normal EBC trekking route.

Required experience and physical condition for Everest Base Camp:

According to the categorization of trekking, Everest Base Camp trekking is considered one of the moderate popular trekking in the world. Although this trek is moderate, some of the trekkers succeed to complete the whole trekking. But due to the high altitude and pain, some of them cannot complete it. The trekkers who can afford a 6-7 hours walk every day up and downhill can complete this trek.

It is possible to complete the EBC trek without any training and experience. However, training makes EBC trek much easier. Mission Himalaya Treks suggest the trekkers join exercise and jog every day at least 30 days prior to start this trek.EBC trekking is easy for those trekkers who have previous trekking experience in high-altitude environments. Mission Himalaya treks suggest you bring knee support. Big technical issues not necessary for this trek. If you have a blood disease, lung problem, and heart problem, then please consult with your doctor and inform us before booking this trek.

Due to the low oxygen level above 5000m altitude, it becomes quite difficult for trekkers to breathe while trekking. Therefore, altitude is the main reason for making this trek more difficult.

EBC Trek Difficulty:

Trekking is an adventure sport. Some of the treks in Nepal are suitable only for highly experienced trekkers whereas some routes are suitable for novice trekkers as well. An average fit person with regular training can do most of the treks. No matter how difficult a trek is if you have the will and determination to complete the trek, nothing can come on your way. Speaking of the EBC trek difficulty, it is a common question among the trekkers whether the trek is doable or not.

Well, the trek difficulty of any region is based on several factors like duration, altitude, trekking season, and many others. Similar to the other trekking regions, the difficulty level of the EBC trek also depends on these factors. If you opt for long trekking routes, then it may take a month or longer to complete such treks. Trekking for a month in the trails of mountains is undoubtedly a strenuous task.

Talking about the trek to Everest Base Camp, it normally takes around 14 days to complete the trek. Therefore in terms of trekking duration, it is considered a moderately difficult trek. Regarding the altitude, though the trek to EBC is considered a high altitude trek, by taking proper acclimatization rest you can avoid altitude sickness. Considering the trekking season, if you trek this region during the Autumn or Spring season, you may find this trek a moderate trek. For experienced trekkers, this trek can be an easy trek. Please consult with us if you are concerned about your fitness level.

Meals on the EBC Trek:

During your Trekking period, we will provide all the meals but only breakfast will be given in Kathmandu. Depends your international flight time we will provide you with a farewell or welcome dinner in a typical Nepali local restaurant with a cultural dance show. During your trek breakfast and dinner will be taken in the lodges where you sleep overnight but lunch takes in the middle of the trekking period. Indian, Italian, Nepalese, and continental food is the choices in the trekking menu provided by the tea houses. Like noodles, soups, handmade bread, rice items, curries, spaghetti, pizza, egg items, potatoes are available in the mountains. These meals are prepared after your order.

In most of the places, meat is also available but we recommend you not to take them as they are not fresh. Sometimes unhealthy food affects your body and trekking. Do not expect western meals as you take in the city and in your home. MHTAE office gives you full freedom to select your preferred meals from the menu provided by the lodges. The food and raw materials are locally prepared and taste different from the city.

As you can add more without paying extra, it is best to order Nepali Thali Dal Bhator while trekking in Nepal. The Nepali Thali includes Rice, vegetables, curry, meat, lentil soup, and Pickle. In Nepal, one proverb "Dal Bhat power 24 hours" helps you to trek long without hunger. For the breakfast, tea house provides eggs in your style with different kinds of tea coffee or hot chocolate. Moreover, there are different choices of bread-like pancake toast Tibetan bread or chapatti, potatoes, cereals, and many more. So food is not a major concern in trekking.

The meals on the trek prepared by the lodges mean you do not need to carry food on this trekking. All lodges prepare the food. However, it's recommended to carry some energy bars and other quick bites as some camps might be longer than the usual waking hours.
