From the very beginning of the journey, you will be fascinated by the geographical and cultural diversity of Nepal. EBC trek is a full package of excitement, adventure, thrill, shocking moments, glory, and Himalayan sceneries of the almighty snow-capped mountains.
The allures of the mountains and the peaks raising high to dominate the sky make the Everest Base Camp Trek glorious and awful. The snowcapped mountains play hide and seek with the trekkers, sometimes they hide behind the hills, or suddenly clouds, and mists cover them fully. When they appear, the whole scene will be like paradise, a scene beyond our imagination. Every step brings you closer and inside the Himalayas, you start from the green sub-tropical forest of the Sagarmatha National Park but when you reach the EBC, you have the whole surroundings of snow-covered peaks, moraines, and glaciers. And that’s the beauty of Everest Trekking. Dozens of mountains and peaks offer astounding scenes and make the journey a remarkable one. Mt. Everest, Mt. Ama Dablam, Cho Oyo, Lhotse, Nuptse, Island Peak, Mt. Makalu, Thamserku, Pumori, and many other neighboring snow-capped peaks offer stunning panoramas. The Panoramic and 360 views of the peaks of the Everest region/ Khumbu Region from Kalapatther is another jaw-dropping and mesmerizing moment. Likewise, the chameleonic colors of the landscapes, are thrilling, ascends and descends, glacial rivers, streams and fresh springs, long riverbanks and the basin, suspension bridge connecting ridges and hills, sub-tropical and alpine forest, bushes and varieties of rhododendron and other wildflowers, and many other natural phenomenal make the journey to Everest Base camp so exciting, thrilling, and memorable.
Everest Base Camp Trek is a very well-known and highly recognize trekking in Nepal. Many Professional Trekkers, Mountaineers, and Himalayan explorers recommend this Trek also to learn and explore the Himalayan Culture. It passes through the typically settled beautiful villages of the Native Sherpa Peoples where we can learn the Sherpa History and Tradition, their faith and beliefs, norms and values, daily rites and practices, and many other cultural experiences. We also explore the Himalayan Monasteries in the Tibetan- Pagoda style and they are so beautiful and awesome to explore. The Tengboche Monastery and Dingboche Monastery are so awesome. Spending days for acclimatization there, we have plenty of awesome memories of acknowledging the bravery of the sherpa people. You will be stunned by the daily life of the Sherpa People, where many trekkers even find difficulties in breathing, the natives use to play and work for a whole day. This will help us to learn the ability of these Himalayan natives who are very familiar with and strong against those Himalayan Nightmares.
After breakfast, the City Tour Guide will visit y Hotel with Private Vehicle for Kathmandu City Tour. The Tour will be done with other crew members (No needs to join other for Private trips).

Early in the morning, we take a flight to Lukla. During the peak trekking season, the flights use to be highly occupied, and schedules are very tight. We must have to catch an early flight for a better start. And take breakfast at Lukla as well.
During the peak season, to avoid traffic issues, regular flights to Lukla are used to schedule from Manthali Airport, Ramechap. In such a situation, we even wake every morning to reach Manthali for an early flight. Manthali to Lukla flight goes for around 20 minutes. It takes around 4 hours of drive to reach the Manthali Airport from Kathmandu. The 25-30 min flight will be very awesome with insane aerial views of the diverse geography, terrains, hills, basin, river valleys, farmlands, cities, countryside, and mostly the mountains.
After landing in Lukla, we take our first mountain breakfast and prepare the backpacks and continue to trek. The Porters/ remaining crew members will join us here in Lukla before we kick out our Everest Base Camp Trek. We descend to the bank of River Dudh Koshi passing through the Chaurikharka. Phakding, the small settlement of the sherpa people, will come on the way and we take a break here overnight.
After Breakfast, we begin to ascend through the lush rhododendron forest and reach Monjo. At the very beginning of the trekking, we cross the suspension bridge over the River Dudh Koshi. It takes around 2 hours of average ascends through lush rhododendron, oak, junipers, and pine forests before approaching Monjo. We will see the prayer flags tied on the rock and small stupas on the way.
Monjo is the Entrance of the Sagarmatha National Park, the UNESCO World Heritage Site listed for the importance of the endemic and rare Himalayan species of floras and faunas and the importance of the global ecosystem.
After the formalities/ checking by the forest and national park guards and Armies, we enter the Sagarmatha National Park. The Monjo offers a great glance of the staring Mt. Thamserku. After a while of trekking, we reach Jhorsale where we take our lunch. After about 45 mins of hiking from Jhorsale, we reach the one of longest suspension bridges named Hillary Bridge. The river point underneath the suspension is the junction of the Bhote Koshi and Dudh Koshi. Crossing the bridge, we again take a little vigorous ascend till approach the beautiful Sherpa village of Namche Bazar. The hard climb rewards the very beautiful sight of Mt. Everest and that will surely relieve your stress and tired.
It’s always good to add an acclimatization day when you are at an elevation above 3000m from sea level. It allows our body and health to adjust to the sudden change in elevation, weather, and oxygen level. We must climb almost 1000 meters to reach Namche Bazar and experts recommend acclimatizing to elevation in every 1000m of climb. Considering the elevation, we spend a day here in Namche Bazar and explore the surroundings as well as hike nearby Everest Viewpoint.
Everest Viewpoint or Hotel Everest View is one of the most popular and famous places in the Everest Region/Khumbu Region. The Viewpoint has an astounding glance at Mt. Everest and neighboring mountains such as =. Thamserku, Kongde, Kusum Kanguru, and Nuptse stood high one after another. It takes only an hour in max to reach there from Namche Bazar. The Hotel Everest View is the world Highest Placed Star hotel and a gunnies world record holder for that as well. Take a cup of tea or coffee and sit in front of the almighty Mt. Everest! This is what we call the glories of Everest Trekking.
We also explore the capital city of the Khumbu Region- the Namche Bazar. This is the largest market and settlement in the entire Khumbu region and the biggest shopping hub for Everest Travelers and trekkers. We visit the explore the marketplace, buy some items if we need and forgot to take them before. We interact and communicate with the local people who are so kind and frank with the visitors.
The segment of trekking from Namche to Tengboche is one of the best parts of Everest Trekking and the most scenic as well. The numerous mountain vistas, landscapes, and glimpses of the Himalayan range are so mesmerizing. Throughout the whole day, we have very great mountain views and landscapes spreading around the Khumbu Region.
After having breakfast at Namche Bazar, we continue our hiking. We cross the small Sherpa Villages, Stupas and Monasteries, Chortens, Mani walls, and Prayer Flags tied over the routes, and pass out the rhododendrons, pines, oaks, junipers, and many other alpine floras.
Remember it is one of the biggest National Parks in Nepal and we may have a chance to encounter some of the rare and endemic Himalayan wild animals. Walking through the glacial of the River Dudh Koshi, we have great views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and many Others. Especially, the Ama Dablam is so iconic and majestic to admire during this segment of Everest Trekking.
The Very beginning of the day trek is very easy for around 1 and a half hours before descending to level the Imja Khola where we take our lunch. After a while, we again ascend the uphill route to approach the Tengboche where we spend a night.
Tengboche is another popular village in the Everest region and equally the best to explore the sherpa culture and history. The Tengboche Monastery is the most popular and one of the biggest monasteries in the entire Khumbu region and the center of the sherpa people faint and beliefs as well. We visit the monastery and wish we can get the blessing of the Buddhist monk. Having a bit of luck, we may meet Lama Rinpoche who is the biggest monk in Buddhism.
Enjoy your breakfast with a great view of tipping Mt. Everest behind the Nuptse range, Lhotse, and iconic Mt. Ama Dablam. Then we start to trek we slightly descend to level the Imja River after Debuche surrounded by pines and rhododendrons and cross the suspension bridge over Imja Khola. We pass the moraines and some stoned memorials in memory of the climbers and trekkers deceased on different mountain expeditions and climbing.
Crossing the Imja Khola Suspension bridge, we reach one of the large settlements namely Pangboche. The uphill ascends from here take us to a small settlement of fancy cafes and bakeries. The trail becomes drier, rugged, deserted, and open. We come closer to the mountains, and they start to appear with their gigantic looks. We then reach Dingboche where we spend a night.
Another milestone! Another likely 800 meters of climbing and it’s time to acclimatize to the elevation and new atmosphere. Dingboche is one of the popular places in Everest trekking and memorable too as Tenzing Norge Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary step their first step for Everest Summit. Here in Dingboche we spend a day for acclimatization and exploring the surrounding and nearby peaks.
We hike the nearby peak called Nangkartshang, 5,083m. it takes around 3 hours to reach the viewpoint. The Nangkartsang viewpoint offers an excellent aerial of the several peaks in the Everest ranges and the gigantic Lhotse, Nuptse, and other snowcapped peaks. Especially, the iconic look of the Ama Dablam, the island peak, Imja valley, and Chukung valley make an incredibly picturesque scene. After the descent, we explore the Dingboche Village. Interact and connect with the locals. It will be very nice to learn and understand their history, bravery, and ability to survive in the highland. Don’t forget to get tips from them to skill yourself.
From here the trekking trail becomes more tough and challenging compared to the previous segment. A thinner oxygen level means more tiredness and more energy consumption. Passing the grazing lands, we join the uphill sloppy ascends and continue to walk through the ridge line, the shoulder of the Pheriche. The environment here is different from the previous days and the terrain suddenly becomes wider open and wilder. We get a great picture of the Tawache, Cholatse, Lobuche, and iconic Ama Dablam on the way. We take our lunch at the bank of t
slopy landscapes the Khumbu Glacier. Another 1hr of hiking brought us to the Sherpa memorial place namely Thukla pass, 4,800m. Several Stone-made memorials in the memories of the sherpa expeditors and climbers are built over here. From here the gradual and even track brings us to Lobuche, the side of the Khumbu Glacier. The route will be rocky, and slippery due to melting snow during summer and snow-covered during autumn. Reaching the Lobuche during the clear sky before sunset allows majestic shades of the evening. Taking dinner early, we get to bed early for perfect sleep for tomorrow’s early morning hike.
This is the most awaited and one of the long segments of the EB Trek. We kick the day very early in the morning for the glory of this trekking. We begin with a soft walk up to the Gorek Shep. Then after, we take the uphill routes and go along the Khumbu Glacier until the Everest Base Camp. This part will be rocky and craggy. It takes about 3 hours to reach Gorek Shep where we take our meal and continue with glacier/ moraine to reach our much-awaited destination. On the way, we have great views of the Khumbu Icefall and a glimpse of the tipping Everest. The clouds and fogs under the neath separate the snowcapped mountains from the lower alpine greeneries. We meet the number of climbers attempting Everest and Lhotse Summit. About 3 hours of trekking along the glaciers brings us to the Everest Base Camp. We can see the numerous tent and camps for mountain climbers. The close-up views of the gigantic and almighty mt Everest standing tall in front of us from the EBC is what weare giving our all effort in the EBC trek. Imagine the moment. Residing in the lap of the world’s tallest mountains and admiring its glory. It’s the memories no one can explain in the words.
From Pheriche, we further climb down to the place where we spent the day for acclimatization. We can visit the souvenir shop around the Namche for memories and gifts for your near/ dear ones.
Further climbing down to end the time at Everest Base camp. We enjoy the Last hurrah in the Everest Region.
Take a flight from Lukla Airport and return to Kathmandu.
