The Mt. Everest trip is one of the most well-known trekking routes in the world. The trip’s main attraction is climbing the world’s tallest mountain, Mt. Everest.
Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norge Sherpa of New Zealand and Nepal, respectively, made the first ascent of Mt. Everest in 1953. Trekking to Mt. Everest’s Base Camp has been a popular location since their climbing succession to Mt. Everest. The EBC hike includes not only the Himalayan beauties of Mt. Everest, but also Sherpa culture, Buddhist monasteries, flora, and fauna. For example, you can learn about numerous lovely Sherpa villages and their mountain lifestyles
The rhododendron, juniper, and other flora woods contribute to the allure of the walk.
The Everest region is spectacular, with its breathtaking mountain range scenery. As you travel farther into the Khumbu region, you will be astounded by the spectacular views of Mt. Everest giants and other Khumbu region largest peaks including as Lhotse, Cho yu, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Pumori. Only after a short picturesque flight from Kathmandu to the Everest Base Camp Airport does the trekking begin. This airport is often referred to as Hillary Airport or Lukla Airport. Another long route is also available, notably for those who have extended holidays and want to avoid taking a domestic aircraft, which begins in Jiri.
The majority of Everest trekkers begin their journey in Lukla. In the beginning, the journey takes you through the Sagarmatha National Park. The adventure continues by ascending the Mt. Everest Campground in the footsteps of the legendary mountaineers. From there, you can get incredible close-up views of the frightening Khumbu icefalls.
Another draw is the spectacular views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makalu from Kalapatthar. Hiking in Kala Patthar is a wild and thrilling story to tell your friends and family when you return home.
Before planning your trekking itinerary, we recommend that you read our EBC Trek review pages and join the reputable firm.
The EBC trekking itinerary is also neither longer nor shorter. As a result, it is ideal for any mountain enthusiast. However, if our trekkers demand it, we can shorten or even add the extra days.
When you arrive at Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be met by our agent and driven to your accommodation.
Your hotel is located in the heart of the city, in the bustling and colorful district known as Thamel. This is an interesting area to spend an afternoon with its restaurants, bars, and shops selling unique Nepali handcrafted things and trekking gear.
Flights to Lukla are increasingly likely to fly out of Manthali Airport in Ramechhap District due to changes in policy and upgrading at Kathmandu's domestic airport.
This requires a four-hour evening trip from Kathmandu. The flight from Manthali will take 20 minutes and will depart early in the morning.
When you arrive in Lukla, our knowledgeable local porters will greet you. We're on our way to Phakding.
The walk today takes us through woodlands, typical communities with cultivated fields, and yak pastures.
We proceed on to Namche Bazaar after lunch. This is the Khumbu Region's largest Sherpa settlement and the beginning point for excursions and trekking groups.
(Visit the Sherpa museum and Hike Everest View Hotel.
Today we will stop at Namche Bazar for acclimatization, where we will explore the diverse and most popular Namche Bazar. But it doesn't mean we don't take action! Being active is the best way to acclimate.
You will also get to visit the famous Sherpa museum and the lovely view of Everest Hotel.
There aren't many hard ascents and descents these days, so there's plenty of time to focus on photography! Stupas (Buddhist shrines), prayer flags, mani walls (walls with Buddhist prayers engraved into them), and mountains like Ama Dablam are all worth photographing.
The trail to Tengboche is a dusty switchback route, but the views from the monastery make it all worthwhile. If you are fortunate enough to be able to attend a service, a small donation would be greatly appreciated. You can certainly light some butter lamps.
The trail is, of course, quite picturesque, but it is also extremely hard today. We begin by following the Imja Khola before ascending to Dingboche's windswept fields (mostly potato).
This is the Khumbu Region's highest Sherpa village. From here, the views of Ama Dablam are exceptionally stunning and dramatic. We'll be in Dingboche in time for lunch. The rest of the afternoon is free to read a book or simply gaze out at the mountains.
(Visit Chukkung valley and back to Dingbuche.)
With the increasing altitude, it is critical to take an extra day to acclimate. Today, there are numerous possibilities for short hikes.
Visit the base of Nangkar Tshang Peak, which contains sacred places and offers views of Mt Makalu. This climb will take between 3.5 and 5 hours round trip, and the ascending altitude will help our bodies prepare for the high altitudes ahead.
The walk today begins with a gradual ascent toward the Pheriche Valley.the more we climb we experience, the more mountain beauty with yak pastures. Tawoch and Cholotse are on exhibit, with Ama Dablam in the background. Ama Dablam appears to be rising immediately from the valley floor from this vantage point.
The trail continues to Thokla Pass, where the elevation is difficult. A photographer's dream, with panoramic views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, and a few other 7,000+ meter peaks!
Same day visit Everest Base Camp (5365m.), Overnight at Gorakshep.
the trek takes around 3 hours to cross the gigantic rocky terrain of Gorakshep and leads to a small traditional village.
After lunch, depart for Kalapatthar, where the views of Everest are simply the greatest you can get. This is the greatest altitude we can trek in Nepal without obtaining climbing permits, at 5,545m.
Early in the morning Hike-up to Kalapather view point for sunrise view with panoramic view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Pumari, Mt. Lotse, Mt. Nupse and other mountain range.
And Trek back down to Pheriche/Pangboche.
If we didn't make it to Kalapatthar yesterday, we'll get there this morning before returning to Gorakshep for breakfast. Likewise, if we did not visit Everest Base Camp on day 9, we will do so this morning. and by taking 3 to 4 hours of walk we will back to Gorakshep.
having a warm breakfast we take 4-5 hours of drive to Pheriche. The Himalayan Rescue Association Clinic is located in this small town.
It is now a hospital, but it is still focused on altitude sickness and altitude-related illnesses of trekkers and climbers, as well as the health of the local population. This is an intriguing aspect of the area, staffed primarily by volunteer medical personnel.
Today's trail falls significantly, but there are also some uphills to contend with! The forests and flora reappear as we move closer to Namche Bazar.
This is a lengthy day of trekking, made more arduous by the previous day's difficult journey. But keep going because a tasty meal and a hot shower await! And now is the time to toast your successful trek to Everest Base Camp with a cold one!
In the early morning, take one final look at the majestic Himalayan mountains before bidding farewell to the Khumbu Valley and Mount Everest. Then, as we make our final lengthy ascent into Lukla, keep your head down.
(Farewell dinner together in the evening.)
This morning, we bid farewell to Mt. Everest and the Khumbu Region as we catch our flight back to Kathmandu or Manthali. We'll be back in Kathmandu for brunch or in the early afternoon, depending on which airport is open at the time and, of course, the weather. Then we'll go shopping before our farewell meal in the evening.
After breakfast, our staff will transport you to Tribhuvan International Airport in plenty of time for your onward trip.
