What does the journey to Everest base camp look like?

A journey to Everest Base Camp is one of the most splendid experiences that one can take on. Starting with a 20 min seat-grabbing flight to Lukla airport at 2800 meters, also known as a world-dangerous airport, you begin your crucial yet extremely exciting walking journey to EBC. Going up and downhill from Lukla, you follow the trail to a beautiful town called Phakding, where you get to taste the amazing culture of the Sherpa people. Continuing the walk from Phakding, next on the journey is the bustling town of Namche, also primarily known as the gateway to Everest. Namche similarly is also famous for bewitching its visitors with its amazing vibe and surreal backdrop. We spend two days in Namche for acclimatization, and trekkers are welcome to explore the town and its iconic places on the second day. The trail climbs out of Namche and takes on to the magnificent Tengboche monastery. 


The journey then follows the trail to Dingboche, from where breathtaking sights of Lhotse and Nuptse are visible. This is the second spot for acclimatization on this trek. Trekkers may roam around the village, exploring its alleyways and inspecting the long chain of beguiling stone mani walls. From here onwards, you are getting close to your destination, and you will know it as the mountain seems closer than ever. Tailing the rugged path from Lobuche, you hike to Everest Base Camp and witness the incredible sights of the Everest range all at once. The view becomes even more enthralling as you hike to Kala Patthar and glimpse the spectacular Mt. Everest and its neighboring peaks. After admiring the majestic scenery, we descend to Pheriche, Namche Bazaar, and then to Lukla, from where we take our return flight to Kathmandu. 

The first day marks your arrival day in Kathmandu. Clear all the visa requirements and customs clearance, if any, at the arrival section of the airport. As you come out, you will find a representative from World Alpine Treks waiting for you holding a board with your name. You will then be transferred to your hotel in Kathmandu. The representative will shortly inform you about the plans ahead.

On the second day, you will be headed to the domestic terminal of Tribhuwan Airport for a flight to Lukla. The flight to Lukla in itself is an enriching experience where you will be able to enjoy some beautiful views of the mountains. As you land in Lukla, you will meet our other crew members at the airport. From Lukla, we walk down the trail along with hotels and lodges to Dudhkoshi River. We cross a long suspension bridge over the river and follow a path that takes us to Phakding. We stay at Phakding for the night. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner)

We wake up early and enjoy our breakfast. Then we follow our trail that goes through an undulating path up and down via traditional villages, fields, and rhododendron forests. We gradually ascend and enter Sagarmatha National Park with magnificent views of Mt. Thamserku on sight. We pass villages like Jorsale and Monjo on the way to Namche. Namche Bazaar is an old but lively Sherpa village. It is a gateway to all the trekking routes that go to the Everest region. There are many vibrant shops, cyber cafes, restaurants, hotels, and lodges at this time. Namche Bazaar never rests. It always gets a lot of visitors and is always crowded. We stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Namche for the night. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

As we ascend, our trail traverses through the forests of rhododendron with brilliant views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Amadablam, and Mt. Lhotse on sight. After a while, the trail descends to the Dudh Koshi River at Phungi Thanga. From here, the trail further ascends through the forests of pine and rhododendron to Tengboche. Tengboche is accessible from the Tengboche monastery and has astonishing views of Mt. Ama Dablam along with other peaks in the region. Tengboche monastery is considered as the largest monastery in the region. Today, we stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Tengboche for the night. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

We leave Tengboche and start climbing up the trail for around six hours to Dingboche. As we ascend, we can notice the change in vegetation. We can find ourselves moving above the tree line with pastures and meadows along the way. On the way, we can see small fields enclosed by stone walls to protect crops from cold winds. As we open up to the meadows of Dingboche, we will find ourselves in a spectacular location with beautiful views of Lhotse and Nuptse Ridge on sight. If the weather is favorable, one can relish the fantastic views of the sunset over the Ama Dalam Himal in the Everest region. Tonight, we stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Dingboche. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

We spend another day in Dingboche. This day in Dingboche is a part of acclimatization. As we have already gained enough height, acclimatization is a necessity. Therefore, we enjoy our day in Dingboche today. After breakfast in the guesthouse, we hike up to Nagerjun for close-up views of mountains in the Everest region. We will be blessed with amazing views of Mt. Makalu, Mt. Ama Dalam, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, and many more. After enjoying the spectacles of the mountains from Nagerjun, we walk back to the guesthouse in Dingboche for the night. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

Leaving Dingboche, the trail climbs up a ridge with some magnificent views of Taboche Peak and Cholatse. Further, the trail continues through yak pastures until we cross a wooden bridge over a stream to Duglha. From Duglha, we ascend for an hour along a steep route above the moraine of Khumbu glacier. From here, we climb the valley to Lobuche, enjoying the views of Khumbutse, Pumori, and Lingtren. Mt. Everest becomes invisible as it is hidden behind the towering peaks of Lhotse and Nuptse. On reaching Lhotse, we stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Lobuche. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

Today is one of the most rewarding days of our journey. Our week-long hard work is going to pay off as we will be stepping into the Everest Base Camp – the dream of every single travel lover. From Lobuche, we follow a rocky path to the last village of the trail – Gorekshep. From Gorekshep, we continue towards the world’s highest base camp i.e. Everest Base Camp through the Khumbu glacier. It is considered one of the most dangerous sections of Everest Base Camp Trek. As we reach the base camp, we will be showered with some mesmerizing views of glaciers, lakes, caves, and icefalls. Though the views of Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Nuptse are quite clear, Mt. Everest hides back behind the shades of Lhotse and Nuptse. After spending some time in base camp, we return back to Gorekshep via the same route. Tonight, we stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Gorekshep. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

Today, we woke up a little early to catch the sunrise views from Kalapatthar. We hike up for around two to three hours from Gorekshep to Kalapatthar. As we ascend up, we get the first glimpse of the mighty Mt. Everest along with the other peaks like Mt. Pumori, Mt. Lingtren, Mt. Khumbutse, Mt. Changtse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Ama Dablam, etc. The golden rays of sunrise glittering over the snow-clad mountains in the region look amazing. After having this amazing view from Kalapatthar, we retrace our steps back to Pheriche. Tonight, we stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Pheriche. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) provide the most favorable weather conditions and picturesque vistas. During these peak seasons, Everest base camp welcomes many travelers seeking thrilling adventures.


Autumn Season (Sept - Nov)

Considered the best trekking season in Nepal, autumn brings clear skies, moderate days, and fantastic trekking conditions. The post-monsoon period clears the atmosphere of dust and pollution, offering crystal-clear views and stunning panoramas of the Himalayan mountains.

Spring Season (March-May)

Spring is a captivating time to EBC trek in Nepal, offering warmer temperatures, blossoming flora, and pleasant days. The early spring may be a bit chilly in the low-elevation regions (800-2,000m), but areas like lower Everest provide a delightful experience. As spring advances, regions above 4,000m have moderate temperatures, creating sunny, clear, and warm trekking conditions.

Excellent trip to ABC & EBC with a professional Guide

A very special thanks to my really good guide, Deepak. I don't think I can find a better one. I traveled solo and he was always there advising me on things to buy, also taking good care of me and answering all my queries during my trek. When I had blisters and walked with so much pain, he always made jokes to make me feel better. Would definitely choose Alpine Treks because of Deepak on all my future Nepal trips as my trip was a success! The Alpine Treks team is amazing and everyone showed more care than interest in money which I found truly amazing. They always prioritized my safety, and food and made sure I was always contented with everything. They definitely give very good service. Deepak personally sent and fetched me from the airport and they always had lovely greetings and farewells.

My trip went very well because I made the decision to go with World Alpine Treks. It's really important to find the right trekking company and I especially recommend them as they were more interested in my well-being and to enjoy my stay in Nepal more than anything else. There was full transparency from the start to the end & Deepak always answered every query I had even before my arrival in Nepal. World Alpine Treks is a trustable, honorable company and I would recommend it to all. Have been on a hiking trip to EBC, ABC & Annapurna Circuit with them.

Deepak is a Good Guide

I have been to EBC and had Deepak as my guide. He is very professional, warm, and cute. He took care of our group and help us immediately with whatever we needed. During the 13 days, he gave us a lot of good suggestions to make the trip safer. I trust him and enjoy my time in Nepal very much. If you are going to Nepal for trekking, EBC is a good choice and Deepak is a good guide to consider.

Everest Base Camp Trek Experience !!

The Everest Base Camp Trek with Deepak as a guide was probably the best experience of my life. It’s important to have someone taking care of you and looking up to your well-being, safety, and comfort while you are facing an experience as challenging. Deepak took care of booking the best and most comfortable accommodations all along the way, ordering our food, getting all the tickets (plane, national park, etc) since they were included in the price, and helped us manage the high properly (we had NO issues at all under his watch) and most importantly was super involved in making our experience perfect. We become friends with both Guide and Sherpa along the way.

I wouldn’t have imagined how amazing this experience would be. I am forever grateful to Deepak and his company, who also took care of helping us get last-minute clothes since our bags were delayed 12 days (this was completely out of their scope of work, and they did it only out of kindness and devotion to their job). I would definitely recommend anyone who makes this experience with World Alpine Treks, a great and very professional company, and most important, owned by great people.

 Unforgettable Experience of Everest Base Camp!!

The best Everest trekking guide! Deepak is genuinely exceptional. From the moment we embarked on our journey, his expertise, and passion for the mountains were evident. His extensive knowledge of the Everest region, coupled with his impeccable communication skills, made our trek an unforgettable experience. Deepak's patience and understanding were remarkable, as he catered to each group member's needs and pace, ensuring that everyone felt comfortable and safe throughout the entire trek. Not only did he provide valuable insights into the local culture and surroundings, but his infectious smile and positive energy lifted our spirits even during challenging moments.

If you're planning an Everest base camp trek, I can't emphasize enough how invaluable Deepak's guidance and companionship are. He goes above and beyond to ensure an incredible adventure, and I wholeheartedly recommend him as the ultimate Everest trekking guide.
