Follow the footsteps of Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay to the world’s highest place – Everest Base Camp. It is probably the adventurous journey one could opt for. Everest Base Camp Trek is a journey to an ultimate destination chosen by many fellow travelers and adventure lovers. The charm of the world’s highest mountain – Mt. Everest, is above all the trekking destinations worldwide. Everest Base Camp Trek lets you soar above the heights of 5,000 meters, applauding the glory of bright blue sky, sky-dominating mountains, and mountainous terrain.
Everest Base Camp Trek is a lifetime memory that allows you to enter Sagarmatha National Park and immerse deep into the beauty of Khumbu Valley. The view of the world’s highest mountains – Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Cho Oyu is a surreal experience that can be gained through this trek. Besides, the close-up view of mountains like Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Tawache, etc., is a delightful moment.
The charming Sherpa village on the route is a reviving way to confront the unique culture and lifestyle of the Himalayan people. Namche Bazaar is a famous town where you can explore the traditional yet busy life of Sherpa people. Some people are engaged in the hotel business, some with trading goods up and down with the use of Dzopkos (a cross of yak and cow used as Himalayan transport), some with household chores, etc.
Generally, the people in the Himalayan region follow the Buddhist religion. The dominance of the religion can be reflected in the prayer flags, mani walls, stupas, and monasteries on the route. Tengboche monastery is a vast spiritual hub in the Khumbu region. Kalapatthar is another popular vantage point at a height of 5,500 meters that offers 360-degree views of mountains in the Everest region. It is best known for its sunrise and sunset views over Mt. Everest and other neighboring peaks.
EBC is not an extremely hard trek, but it’s not super easy, either. We can say that this trek is quite challenging; that is why it is one of the best treks for those who want to feel a lifetime adventure. The entire trek takes place over 12 days and reaches a maximum elevation of 5,545 meters. The hike is moderately difficult; to meet the challenge, you must be physically and mentally fit and ready. If you’re worried about being able to keep up on the trek, we recommend you practice various cardiovascular exercises like walking and running to boost your stamina.
During the trek, you’ll have to walk continuously for days together, so you should have strong legs for the trek, make sure you can at least run 5km before getting in a trek. Everest Base Camp Trekking is suitable for most trekkers and hikers of average fitness levels to prepare for the trek. It is a well-known fact that the air at higher elevations is thinner, and some may find it hard to catch their breath if they are not prepared for the change in altitude.
You should be able to walk and climb moderate hills to keep up with the guides. You’ll be monitored by an experienced and responsible guide, so there is no hiking experience needed for the trip. The main concern is for the safety of the group, and you’ll get the opportunity to stop and take a break along the way. It helps a lot to get plenty of rest and hydration for the hikes, as well as to be in good physical condition. You need to be able to manage your essence safely and never be afraid to let your guide and friends know how you feel.
Also, altitude sickness can kill, so respect the mountain and respect the decision of your guide. The sooner you acclimate to the environment, the faster you’ll adapt to it. The main goal is to sustain your energy over long periods to keep a steady pace. If you follow these tips, you’ll complete the Everest Base Camp Trek like a seasoned pro.
Life is short, so make it as memorable as possible, dream about your adventure, and go for it. We will help you to fulfill your dream of being in the arms of the Himalayas. If you want a new and exciting experience, the world alpine trek can take you to new heights. We will do our best to make your trip as awesome as you want. Trekkers are provided with all the basics, like accommodations, meals, and transportation. Everything is arranged ahead of time by our administration staff before the trek. Hundreds of people flock to Everest every year to take a trip up the mountain. It’s an experience that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. Our well-trained and experienced guides and courteous staff will make sure your trip is memorable and one that you will cherish forever. Let go of your worries and follow your adventurous spirit to Everest Base Camp.
You’ll be setting out on a 12-day adventure into the mountain villages of Nepal, a place that few people get the chance to see on the way to Everest Base Camp. It’s like stepping back in time to a simpler way of life surrounded by nature. Your itinerary is designed to show you all the best sights and a chance to visit remote areas that are only accessible on foot. Contact us today to book your adventure. We are ready and pleased to be part of your adventure.
Drinking or smoking during the trek can directly affect your performance. Make sure you take good care of your health. During the trek, you might be facing high altitude sickness. Even a small health issue can cause a big problem for your trip. Make sure to be physically and mentally healthy.
You need enough stamina and energy during the trial, so make sure to feed yourself with healthy and proper food. You could find many non-veg food varieties up there but stick to vegetarian food cause it will be fresh and healthy compared to non-veg.
You can buy your own sleeping bag, or you can also rent it in KATHMANDU; everything that you need for the trek is available here in THAMEL. If you get a SIM card, it will be very easy for you to get connected. And yes, travel insurance is a must our company will give you all the information regarding your documentation.
The last working ATM with hefty fees is in NAMCHE BAZAAR. You cannot use the card up there, so you must have enough cash before you leave NAMCHE BAZAR or before heading toward base camp. Up there, you could use only cash to purchase everything that you need. So be prepared for that.
The weather of the EBC trail is very changeable; on any given day, it could be hot, cold, rainy, snowy, or windy, so make sure you have the right gear easily as you are working on the trial. Ensure you have a proper lightweight day pack of at least 35lt that can pack daily-use items for you.
You need to focus on a deep breath in through the nose and out through the mouth. Your goal should be to keep your heart rate as slow as possible at all times while on the EBC track. Make sure you have two days between for acclimatization. One would be good in NAMCHE BAZAAR, about 3000 meters, and another in DINGBOCHE, about 4400 meters. This will give you a safer and more enjoyable experience going to achieve, and it prevents the chance of getting rescue sickness.
There is danger in many parts of the trek, like rockfalls, landslides, weather changes, etc. You need to make sure you are aware of your surroundings at all times. With each step, your personal safety should be your main concern when you are on trial.
At higher steel, low oxygen levels make you breathe even deeper and faster, so it makes you lose more water through respiration and makes you need to urinate more often. You need to make sure that you have at least drink 4-5 liters of water each day. It would be better if you bring your own water bottle and purifier tables. You can also buy bottled water up there, but it will be too expensive, and there is currently no way to recycle plastic bottles in the region, so save money and save the environment.
A little breathlessness here and there is normal. Which is why acclimatization is important. To prevent the chance of getting sick, you need to be able to manage your essence safely and never be afraid to let your guide and friends know how you feel. Altitude sickness can kill, so respect the mountain and respect the decision your guide makes.
You might wonder which season and time are best for the EBC trek. Here we have given you some information about the EBC trek so that you can decide at your convenience. All year round it just depends on what type of trip you are looking for and it depends on the experience level you have, so here we have written about the pros and cons of each season throughout the year.
October to November is an autumn season in Nepal. This is the season of festivals in Nepal. During October, We Nepalese people celebrate one of the biggest festivals called DASHAIN and TIHAR; if you decide to come to Nepal during this period, you will get a chance to explore so many new traditions and costumes because; during this season, you will get to experience so many new activities on the way to the EBC trek. This time of year is the best weather for the trek, at this time, there is no snow, so there will be the clearest views. It is warmer at lower elevations, and there is less ice up at base camp. During this trip, you will learn about the lifestyle of the Sherpa people who live in the arm of the Himalayas. One of the cons is that it is high season, so it is more expensive, there are more people, and there is less room in the tea houses. There are lots of stopping for queuing, and there is nobody at base camp camping. Most of the people there will be busy preparing to go to the summit, so you don’t get to meet people.
The pros of going from December to February are that there will be fewer people. It is off-season so that for the EBC trek it is much cheaper at this time. During this season, there will be a clear sky, and there will be good views if you are lucky. The cons are that it is going to be extremely cold at night, dipping down to -20. However, it is also going to be much more chilly in the day, so, therefore, you are going to need to pack more clothes, it will be a heavier backpack for you, and you are possibly going to need some boots with crampons as opposed to wearing hiking shoes or trail runner so that’s going to add more weight to your pack as well. So depending on your experience level, you might be an expert and love hiking there is hardly anybody there, and you are very used to hiking in those conditions.
From March to May, you will get good weather, clear skies, and, yes, great views. During the spring season, it's warm in the day, and elevations there is less ice at base camp people will be preparing to go to the Mt Everest summit at base camp, so you will get to move around there and ask people questions and see how they are getting set up for their trek. Cons of going in this season are that it’s going to be incredibly busy, especially because there are a lot of people heading up to Everest base camp; there are going to be a lot more trains of donkeys and bringing supplies to the base camp. There you can see many more people getting Heli packs out of there. It just going to be very busy as the autumn it’s going to be more expensive. There will be fewer rooms in tea houses, and again there will be lots of stopping for queuing.
June- September is a summer season, so during this season, it is a bit warmer, and all the ice has melted; then you will get much more flora and fauna up there. Pros of this season are that It is going to be less busy, so during summer, it’s going to be a lot cheaper, and also, there are going to be lots of wildflowers growing in the KHUMBU valley. Cons of going in the summer are that it’s going to be extremely wet, it’s going to be cloudy, and there is not going to be a very good view, so if you don’t like the wet and you are going for views, then this season is not for you.
If you have enough time and want to explore the region more, you can opt for Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Lake Trek. If you are looking for a more challenging trek, then opt for Everest High Passes Trek or Everest Base Camp Trek with Island peak climbing.
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.
The second day is a day tour just to warm up prior to your trekking journey. Kathmandu is a city enriched with artistic palaces, beautiful monuments, ancient temples, and other constructions of historical and cultural importance. No wonder the city has seven out of ten UNESCO-listed world heritage sites. Today, you will be guided to the UNESCO-listed heritage sites in Kathmandu. These heritages are perfect examples of the rich history, fine culture, and architectural treasures of Nepal. At first, you will be taken to Kathmandu Durbar Square. The art, crafts, and carvings in the palaces, temples, and other monuments of the durbar square are excellent. After that, you will be escorted to Swayambhunath stupa (Monkey Temple), Pashupatinath Temple, and Boudhanath stupa respectively. (Inclusive of breakfast)
On the third 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 wonderful 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 up 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 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).
The narrow street of Namche is always crowded. Do not get surprised if the yak bells and other horns wake you up. Today is a day set aside for acclimatization purposes. As we gain height, our body needs to be well adapted to the altitude change. Therefore, we have set aside an extra day in Namche. Today, we hike up to Everest View Hotel for close-up views of the mountains in the Everest region. From the hotel, we can enjoy some striking views of mountains like Kwangde, Thamserku, Kangtega, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, etc. We can visit a museum and a photo gallery on our way back to Namche from the Everest View Hotel. We stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Namche for the night. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).
As we ascend up, 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 down to the Dudh Koshi River at Phungi Thanga. From here, the trail further ascends up 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 up, 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 wonderful views of Lhotse and Nuptse Ridge on sight. If the weather is favorable, one can relish the amazing 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 up for an hour along a steep route above the moraine of Khumbu glacier. From here, we ascend up 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 the 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).
Today, we descend down to Namche Bazaar via the same path that we had taken earlier. We descend down the same path to Namche Bazaar. Tonight, we stay at a guesthouse/ lodge in Namche. (Inclusive of Breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

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.
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.
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 recommend anyone who makes this experience with World Alpine Treks, a great and very professional company, and most importantly, owned by great people.
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 helped 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.
