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 catch the glimpse of 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 at 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 mountains. As you land in Lukla, you will meet our other crew members at the airport. From Lukla, we walk down through 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 into 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 lodge 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 for the Tengboche monastery and astonishing views of Mt. Ama Dablam along with other peaks in the region. Tengboche monastery is considered as the largest monastery of 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 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 rewarding days of our journey. Our week-long hard work is going to pay off as we will be stepping in 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 as 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 wake 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)

Today, we descend down to Namche Bazaar via the same path that we had taken earlier. We descend down through the same path to Namche Bazaar. Tonight, we stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Namche. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner)
