Overview And Highlights

Everest Base Camp Trekking is a once in a lifetime experience. With an elevation of 5,545m and approximately 65km long from Lukla to EBC (130km around), you can fully experience the sublimation of nature with the promise of breathtaking icefalls, panoramic mountain views and massive glaciers.

Mount Everest – perhaps the only mountain known by everyone, sporty or nerdy, adventurous or prudent. Being the highest mountain above sea level on Earth, many mountaineers mark conquering the 8,848m on their bucket list. The risk involved, however, is a setback for most people who wish to enjoy the picturesque Everest scenery. But now, there is a moderate alternative for common folks – The mt Everest Base Camp Trek.

Everest Base Camp trekking is a once in a lifetime experience. With an elevation of 5,545m and approximately 65km long from Lukla to EBC (130km around), you can fully experience the sublimation of nature with the promise of breathtaking icefalls, panoramic mountain views and massive glaciers. Besides the scenery, during the stay in villages and exploration in different monasteries, you will have the chance to have an in-depth understanding on the Sherpa’s unique way of living and deep linkage of their lives to the mountains. As you will trek from lower elevations to higher elevations you will experience various natural diversity during the mount Everest base camp trek.

Why Everest Base Camp Trek?

Trek to Everest base camp allows you to have the most sincere dialogue with both the nature and culture in Nepal. Besides featuring different world-wide famous mountains, including Mt. Khumbila, Nuptse, Khumbuste, Pumori and most importantly, the Everest, you can also have the chance to see the Khumbu Glacier and Icefall along the way. Even the most ordinary scenes – golden wheat fields swaying in the wind, blooming rhododendrons, lush forests with wild gentle animals – are worth to be framed and captured in camera. Throughout the trek, there are chances to stay in local Himalayan villages, visit monasteries or even observe religious rituals performed there.

15 days EBC trekking package also features the famous city – Kathmandu. Known as the “City of Temples”, Kathmandu can be said as the cradle of the civilization in Nepal. Used to be the capital of different kingdoms, this place contains lots of important cultural and historical sites. You will have the chance to unfold years of history of Nepal as we venture around the city.

Best time to trek in Everest region

Generally speaking, the ideal Everest trekking season would be Spring (March - June) and Autumn (September – December).

For Spring, with winter has just come to an end, the sky clear and the mountain tips covered by snow, it is a good choice for trekking in Everest . For hills above 3,500m, they would be all covered by snow as well. There may be short showers, yet most days are warm and sunny. Everest Base trekking in spring is suggested for you if you want to enjoy fully iced Everest in-front of your eye :).

For Autumn, after the monsoon and before the cold sets in, this period is perfect to trek if you are looking for the panoramic view of the mountains. The sky is cloudless with lush plants shimmering under the gentle sunshine. Although the snow is less than that of the Spring season, Everest Base camp trek in autumn is best time for the crystal clear view. The temperature is perfect as well – not scorching hot during the day and durably cool at night. Autumn is also know by festival season in Nepal so, you can enjoy your Everest trip as well with festivals like Dashin, Tihar. Dashain is great festival of Nepali people. Mount Everest base camp trekking in Autumn is suggested for you if you want to view clear crystal eye view of Everest including thousands of mountain peak in just a single trekking.

Everest Base Camp trek is suitable for time-abundant trekking beginners who wish to unveil the beauty of Everest in a chill way. We also offer others treks of the Everest Region: the 8-day Everest Panorama Trek for trekking newbies, the 22-day Everest Base Camp Jiri Trek for advanced trekkers and the 15-day Gokyo Valley Trek.

FAQs

Everest base camp trekking is moderate type of trekking, by terms of physical fitness it not hard. But in terms of altitude its hard as you need to trek to 5364m from sea level. So we call it moderate trekking.

As per the itenerary mentioned above, the approx trekking distance from Lukla airport to EBC and return again to Lukla is 130km or 80miles. The highest point you will reach is Kalapather 5545m from sea level on 11th day of the trekking and see the world's highest peak. But if you want to trek classic everest base camp trek from jiri then the distance varies upon the starting point and route.

Yes, a normal person with a basic level of fitness can easily trek to EBC with the help of a trekking guide. There will be an experienced guide with you, assessing your walking pace and physical fitness to ensure you can comfortably complete the trek. It's simple enough for anyone with a basic level of fitness to handle. Trekking with guide will reduce the chance of danger from altitude sickness too. Experienced guide will instruct the good practice to follow during ebc trek. He will also manage the activities(pace, rest time) at lower altitude and high altitude.

The best time to visit Everest Base Camp is during the pre-monsoon (spring) and post-monsoon (autumn) seasons. Peak season for trekking Khumbu valley or home of Sherpa people are:

  1. Pre-Monsoon (Spring): Late February to early June

    • The weather is generally stable and clear.
    • Temperatures are milder, and rhododendron flowers are in bloom, enhancing the landscape.
  2. Post-Monsoon (Autumn): Mid September to early December

    • Clear skies and stable weather conditions prevail.
    • The temperatures are still relatively mild, and visibility is excellent.

During these periods, the chances of clear views of Mount Everest and the surrounding peaks are higher. Trekkers should avoid bad weather during the monsoon season (June to early September) due to heavy rainfall, and the winter months (December to February) can be extremely cold with limited accessibility.

Trip Reviews (4)

Wow what an incredible experience. The 9 day trek into Everest base camp was truly out of this world. I highly recommend to hike to Kala Patthar view point if you have time. The last day I took the helicopter from Gorak Shep to Katmandu. The views from up above are a completely different experience. It was the perfect way to end the trek. Jeeban and his team from Adventure Vision Treks and Travel are on another level. So many moving parts to set up something like this and to also see it all the way through. He really treats you like family. I look forward to getting back soon.

Wow! I don’t even know where to begin, this was an incredible trip and experience. I can’t recommend Adventure Vision enough! They are the best! I will 100% use them again for any and all future Nepal travel.

Jiban was wonderful from the get-go; extremely responsive via WhatsApp, they have a wonderful online payment system, Jiban helped me plan my experience and customizing it to my needs. I was on a time crunch and he was able to meet all my requests - including upgrading my teahouses (I needed showers), modifying an 8 day trek into 6 days (pending fitness level and altitude adaptation), getting a helicopter for me when flights were grounded, and planning a city tour for me on my final day. There is nothing he can’t do! He has a great staff and my trek guide, Tony, was wonderful. Tony helped me achieve my goals with lots of laughs and good conversation during the 6 day trek. view details
