If we talk about bucket list activities, then the majority of travelers around the world have a trek to Everest Base Camp on it. And why not? The experience and the mountain panorama Everest Base Camp Trekking offers are out of this world. 

Our numerous years of organizing the Everest trek for individuals all around the globe have taught us it is not only the journey to the lap of the highest mountain in the world. It is not only about the phenomenal views and the adventure. The journey is more so about the accomplishment & challenge one sets for themselves to conquer. 

Everest Base Camp Trek is all about conquering your demons, unwinding, and aligning to your higher self while exploring the wonders of the Himalayas. And we help you complete this trek as smoothly as possible. Our team will arrange everything for you from permits to accommodation & meals. So that you can focus on walking and enjoying the moment. 

You can book Everest Base Camp Trek for 2002 autumn with us now or place early bookings for Everest Base Camp Trek 2023 spring/autumn. We also organize a tailor-made itinerary to Everest base camp.

You can trek in a group or privately. If you are a solo trekker, then join our group departure and get to trek with other travelers from around the world. 

Other alternative treks to EBC

We have many Everest Base Camp Trek packages to suit the requirements of travelers. If you have previous trekking experience and can push yourself on the off-beat route, then we highly recommend the Everest Three High Passes trek or EBC trek with Gokyo Valley

Likewise, if you are short on time and cannot go trekking even for a few days, then the Everest base camp helicopter tour with landing is the ideal package for you. You get to see the aerial views of the Himalayas and also enjoy multiple landings. 

Views during the Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal

Every bend of the trail and every village offers a distinct landscape during the Everest Base Camp Trekking. You’ll see the towering eight-thousanders like Everest (8,849 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,463 m), and Cho Oyu (8,188 m). Likewise, following the foothills of the verdant hills, you get to enjoy views of many other snow-capped mountains views like Island Peak (6,160 m), Ama Dablam (6,812 m), Pumori (7,161 m), Nuptse (7,861 m), Taboche (6,495 m), Thamserku (6,608 m), etc. 

The journey offers a remarkable blend of natural beauty and the rich culture of the locals. The small stupas, chortens, monasteries, and colorful prayer flags along the trekking route amplify the views and take it to the next level. There are then streams, rivers, waterfalls, pastures, and terraced fields.

At Everest Base Camp (5,364 m), you will find yourself surrounded by the blanket of snow and giant mountains dominating the sky. Kala Patthar (5,644 m) presents one of the best panoramas of Everest and a gorgeous sunrise. You will witness stunning glaciers, morines, and gorges at the upper part of the route .

Everest region trek at a glance

We have been running a trek to Everest Base Camp for many years. With time we have learned various things that make trekking in the Himalayas a little bit easier. 

But before going deep into the Everest Base Camp Trek general information, there are a few things we want to talk about related to trekking in the Everest region and the experiences you will get during the Everest Base Camp Trekking.

  • Rushing will only make the trip exhausting and take away the essence of the journey. Cutting the trip shorter even by a couple of days means taking away the chance of acclimatization from yourself, and that will risk you altitude sickness. If you are tight on days, then consider Everest Panorama Trek or Everest Base Camp Trek with Heli Tour. These two packages are equally rewarding and adventurous.
  • Because of all the headlines that thousands of people trekked in the Everest region, many people misunderstand and underestimate the challenges and difficulties actually the trail holds. Of course, anyone can do Everest Base Camp Trek under proper guidance, but it doesn’t mean the trek is easygoing. Even for experienced trekkers, many parts of the Everest Base Camp Trek route can get pretty tough due to the steep ascent and descent. To take it further, you continuously have to deal with the high elevation and remoteness of the region. So keep your mind open, and don’t be cocky. 
  • There is more to Everest Base Camp Trekking than stunning Himalayan mountains and breathtaking landscapes. The intimate encounters with the locals, ancient monasteries visits along the trekking route, and the thriving cultural heritage, followed by the villagers for decades, offer a close glimpse of the Himalayan lifestyle.
  • The extensive range of flora and fauna is another huge aspect of the Everest Base Camp Trekking. To be honest, this trek is a paradise for bird lovers, and in general, anyone who is into biodiversity. The Everest Base Camp Trek goes through the subalpine zone of Sagarmatha National Park all the way up to the alpine zone. That means the lower belt of the trail is packed with lush forests of fir, rhododendron, juniper, etc. 
  • Every village will welcome you with distinct views and experiences. Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche are the four main villages that you pass by during the trek. You will be going on short hikes, visiting museums and the biggest monastery in the Khumbu region in Tengboche village. 

What about the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla for my Everest Base Camp Trek?

The flight between Kathmandu and Lukla is around 35 minutes long and mostly on time in the peak seasons- spring and autumn. The elevation increases from 1,300 meters to 2,860 meters in 35 minutes, so we stay overnight in Phakding village, which is at 2,610 meters. The flight cost is covered in the total cost of the package. We book the flight for you as per our itinerary. 

How safe is the Everest Base Camp Trek?

While trekking with us, you will be walking with a reliable team who have multiple years of experience in trekking in the Himalayas. We do not compromise with safety, and therefore, our Everest Base Camp Trek cost also stands up to it. 

You might be wondering if you can do Everest Base Camp Trek solo or not?

The answer to this question can be biased. It is both yes and no. If you have trekked previously in the Himalayas and are familiar with the Himalayas terrain, then you may embark on the trek alone. But if you are a new trekker, we always recommend getting a trekking guide and a porter. 

First of all, trekking with a travel company will make sure all the bookings for permits, flights, accommodation, and meals are done in advance. In the peak trekking season you may not get room to spend a night. It is harsh but reality.

The second thing is you will be trekking with a native of the region. Yes, our guides are natives of the Everest region, and no one is better than them to introduce you to the legends and myths revolving around the trail. They will provide you deep insight into the life of the locals and their culture. And surely become a trekking companion rather than a trekking guide.

In terms of criminal activities, the Everest region sees nothing like it. So you can trek freely. The thing you have to be careful of is trekking alone. Without a guide, you can see the mountains, pass by villages, and visit monasteries, but there will be no one to give you information about all these places and mountains. You may miss out on amazing information and have to rely on asking people around you all the time, and it can get tough for some trekkers. 

Everest Base Camp Trek cost

You can see a difference in the Everest Base Camp Trek costs from one trekking agency to another. It is because of their offered itinerary, the accommodation standard, and the services they provide. We have different packages in the Everest region that lead to EBC, and the price ranges from USD 950 to USD 1200 and above per person. If you customize the itinerary, then the price may differ. 

The Everest Base Camp Trek package cost includes your flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and vice versa. Likewise, three-star hotel accommodation in Kathmandu with breakfast and all accommodation/meals during the trek are included in the package cost. The package also covers permits, service & government taxes, airport pickup/drop, and welcome/farewell dinner in Kathmandu. 

Things like travel insurance, cross-country flight, personal expenses, additional stay in Nepal, etc, are not covered by the package cost. The Everest Base Camp Trek cost from India is almost similar. You can get in touch with us here anytime for more information regarding the Everest Base Camp Trek cost from India. 

How hard is it to walk to Everest Base Camp?

By experts, the Everest base camp trek is moderate. Some parts of the trekking routes are difficult because of steep ascents & descents. Despite all the hurdles, beginner trekkers can also join EBC trekking if they are well prepared. 

The terrain to the base camp has a combination of gentle paths and rugged tracks. You ascend through the foothills of the verdant hills and giant mountains. Before leaving the treeline Dingboche onwards, most of the trekking route passes through dense forests, crossing nerve-racking logs and suspension bridges.

A minimum of 6 hours of the walk is needed each day. Apart from terrain, you also have to deal with elevation rise, limited services, bare minimum modern comforts, and lingering risks of altitude sickness. As much as the Everest base camp trekking is rewarding, it also demands a lot of sacrifices. Sacrifices that get you out of your comfort zone and align with nature.

Altitude Sickness

Talking about altitude sickness, you don’t have to worry about it if you are trekking with us because our Everest base camp trek itinerary has enough acclimatization days and a well-maintained rise in elevation. You will get plenty of time to rest and relax as you ascend further to the alpine zone.

Altitude sickness is also called acute mountain sickness (AMS). High altitude journeys and AMS go hand in hand, but by taking a few precautions, one can avoid it easily. 

To solo trekkers, we recommend double-checking the itinerary and ensuring there are rest days in between the trek. Also, do not ascend more than 500 meters a day, or the risks of altitude sickness will increase. 

Below we have mentioned some of the things you can do while trekking to doge altitude sickness during the EBC trek:

  • Your body hydration level determines how likely you are to get altitude sickness during the trek. Therefore, drink plenty of water (at least 2 liters a day).
  • You might have guessed it, no alcoholic drinks or smoking. Consuming these things will dehydrate your body, and you wouldn’t want to ruin the venture because of it.
  • Take prescribed altitude sickness medicine and other medicines to deal with headaches & body aches. 
  • Every few days of trekking, take a rest day. Hike to high elevation and sleep at low. 
  • Do not push your body recklessly, listen to it and take a break every now and then while trekking.
  • Inform your guide if you see symptoms like headache, insomnia, difficulty in breathing, appetite loss, etc. These are the early symptoms of altitude sickness. If you can control it on time, you can continue with the journey. 

Training for the Mount Everest Base Camp Trekking

You must have seen hundreds of people trekking to Everest base camp every year, which may inspire you to do this trek as well. But to have a great trekking experience and worth it venture, you have to be ready for the journey and all the challenges it throws at you. 

The Everest base camp trekking does not demand any serious training. You only have to make sure your body can walk long hours and not get anxious because of the scarcity of basic modern facilities. Work on your stamina. Do swimming, cycling, jogging, or hiking to build it. Likewise, you can also go to the gym and do a cardiovascular routine. 

What are the health benefits of the Everest Base Camp Trek?

If we talk about the health benefits, then you can unlock a new level of fitness for your body. Let’s talk facts first. Trekking and hiking, in general, reduces the risk of heart disease and improves blood pressure & blood sugar level. Likewise, long walking hours for eight days or ten days straight helps to reduce weight. We have heard numerous times from our guests at the end of the trek that they lost 4 to 5 kgs of weight. 

As per Gregory Miller, president of the American Hiking Society, ”a 5% to 10% incline equals a 30% to 40% increase in calorie burn.” And guess what, the Everest Base Camp Trek route has many slopes to burn all those calories. 

Besides that, you will learn to work in a team if you are trekking in a group. You will learn remote survival and increase your focus. Your brain will learn to survive in fewer facilities and increase your patience and resilience level.

Best trekking season for Everest Base Camp

The best trekking season for Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal is no doubt spring (March to April) and autumn (October to November). These are the peak months to hit the trail to EBC and enjoy the blooming flowers, pleasant climate & stunning mountain views. 

The flights to Lukla from Kathmandu rarely get delayed or canceled because the weather is stable most of the time. Trekkers from all around the world travel in these seasons in the Khumbu region, so the trail is butling and happy.

If you want to do Everest Base Camp Trek in winter (December to February), let us know. We will do all the arrangements for you. Trekking in winter in the Himalayas requires extra effort in preparation. You have to pack well and have some additional days in hand if the itinerary gets disturbed by unstable weather. 


Our Everest Base Camp Trek is a lodge trek. We spend the night in the doges runned by the local family along the trekking route. The lodges we book will not be fancy ones but comfortable and decent. You can upgrade to our Everest Luxury Trek, if you want to stay overnight in luxury lodges.

The rooms will be small in size but clean. The washroom can be private or common, depending upon the village. There is no heating system in the room nor heating pads provided. You’ll get a blanket and pillow.

Travel Insurance

We recommend travel insurance for Everest Base Camp Trek but let’s be honest, not all the trekker’s trek with travel insurance. If you think your body can handle the elevation change and all the hurdles without any medical issues, then you may consider trekking without travel insurance too.

However, do know that there is also the risk of altitude sickness on Everest Base Camp Trek. If you suffer from it and the symptoms do not subside giving first aid, then we have to air evacuate you to a nearby hospital immediately. And to do so, we need travel insurance.

Trekking with a kid to EBC

Charging, Internet & ATM

Charging facilities are provided in all the lodges along the Everest Base Camp Trekking route but in exchange for a few extra bucks. The same goes for wifi. In the lower altitude, some lodges have paid wifi facilities. The internet connection may not be stable all the time. 

We recommend that travelers carry spare batteries or a solar charger if they are planning to make a lot of pictures/video content. It will also save you some money. Likewise, to use the internet at a higher altitude, we advise you to get a Nepali sim card with data. 

The last ATM is located in Namche Bazaar. So, withdraw money if you are not carrying Nepali cash to use while trekking for additional services. 

Packing List

The better you pack for the trek, the better journey will unfold. You have to make sure you are not carrying brand new trekking shoes. It will give you blisters and make the walk tough. Break-in your shoes. Likewise, do not overpack and do carry a few warm pieces because it can get cold in the mornings & nights.

We will provide you with a packing checklist at the time of booking that you can use to buy or rent your gear. We recommend buying or renting your heavy gears in Thamel, Kathmandu. We have so many high-quality trekking gear providers in Thamel. So you do not have to carry everything from your home.
