Highlights

One of the most well-known and popular treks in the Himalayas is the Everest Base Camp Trek, a 14-day journey to Mount Everest's base camp. This hike provides an unbelievable, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe the Sherpa villagers who live on the world's tallest mountain, Mount Everest, in addition to witnessing the majestic Everest peak itself. The Everest Base Camp Trekking adventure takes you far into nature, away from modern amenities, and offers you some of the most beautiful scenery and visits to some of the remotest and oldest monasteries.

The trek starts from Lukla, following the Dudh Koshi river valley, to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazar at 3440 meters (11290 ft), which serves as the Everest region's nerve center. Trekkers generally give themselves a day of rest to acclimatize at this point. After another two days of trekking, they arrive at Dingboche, located at 4260 meters (13980 feet), before taking another day off to continue acclimatizing. It takes more than two days to get from Kala Patthar, at a height of 5545 meters, through Lobuche or Gorakshap to Everest base camp (18192 ft). For the ideal setup, Adventure Glacier Treks & Expeditions consistently offers the greatest service during the Everest Base Camp Trek.

This Himalaya Base Camp Trek to Mount Everest is a thrilling experience that combines mountaineering, Nepal hiking, and the breathtaking beauty of the Everest mountain. It's a journey to the iconic Everest Base Camp, where trekkers and mountaineers from all over the world gather to begin their journey to conquer the majestic Mount Everest peak.

Trip Itinerary

When you arrive at the airport, you will be greeted by our representative and driver. They will accompany you to the hotel. One of us will be there for a coffee meeting to brief you about your treks and let you know about necessary items or treks. checking your equipment and clothing. If necessary, do some last-minute shopping to make sure you have all the gear and accessories. You will meet with other team members for a welcome dinner in the late evening.

Your thrilling journey to Everest Base Camp begins with a short flight to Lukla. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla takes about 35 minutes and offers spectacular views of the mountains. As a result, once we arrive, we will begin our trekking adventure along the Dudh Koshi River, passing through stone villages and snow-capped mountains on our way to Cheplung (2,700 m) and Ghat (2,530 m). Take advantage of your first overnight stay in Phakding.

From Phakding, take a suspension bridge across the DudhKoshi River and continue through the pine forest to Monjo. From here, the trail crosses numerous suspension bridges and ascends through the Sagarmatha National Park, where your trekking permits will be registered. Finally, we will begin a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, where you will spend the night and catch your first glimpse of Mt. Everest in the distance.

It is your first acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar. During a high-altitude journey, acclimatizing your body is crucial to preventing altitude sickness. We will be spending the day exploring the Namche Bazar, interacting with locals, and visiting museums.

As you ascend through the village of PhunkiTenga, you will arrive at Tengboche, the largest and most legendary Buddhist monastery in the Khumbu region. As a result, you will be amazed by the breathtaking views of the Himalayas in the background. Tengboche is where you'll spend the night.

The trek continues to Dingboche village while providing an excellent view of Island Peak and Ama Dablam.

You will have a free day to rest and relax after days of intensive walking. Alternatively, a 2-3 hour hike to Nangkhartshang Peak (5083m) would be an excellent way to acclimate. This peak also provides breathtaking views of AmaDablam (6812m), Makalu (8485m), Lhotse (8516m), Kantega (6782m), and Cho Oyu (6160m)

You will walk past the Khumbu Glacier's lateral moraine. During the peak climbing season, you will meet many mountaineers attempting to scale Mt. Everest and other surrounding mountains. The trail will be rocky and full of loose boulders, so proceed with caution. After exploring EBC, you will return to GorakShep to spend the night.

Another long day of trekking but fruitful,We will hike to Kala Patthar, one of the most spectacular view point, before leaving Gorak Shep. From here, you can see Mt. Everest and other snow-capped mountains, as well as a beautiful sunrise closely. You'll then descend to Pheriche (4,240 m/13,908 ft) via remote settlements and breathtaking scenery.

There are several ups and downs on the route from Pheriche to Namche. via lunch in Tengboche. Before arriving at Namche Bazaar, we will walk over hills covered with juniper and rhododendron trees, which are home to a variety of animals and birds. Though we are retreking the same trail, we see different angle of views as we face a downhill valley.

Today's journey descends to Lukla along the Dudh Koshi River, passing through the valley via a number of suspension bridges. Before arriving in Phakding, you will pass through little mountain communities like Jorsale and Monjo. The Dudh Koshi River runs alongside the path as it ascends to Lukla.

Trekking and Tour

I went on several trips with Adventure Glacier Treks & Expedition and loved all of them! From the ABC to EBC to a tour to Chitwan to see the elephants - they did all of them perfectly. I travel with my daughter and they were very helpful in organizing everything family friendly. I did not have to worry about anything and all questions were answered quickly. The guides are amazing and made all of our trips a once in a lifetime experience. 100% recommend!

Wonderfull experience in the Himalaya

I have booked the 14-day Everest Tour. My experience with the company has been extremely positive.From the first moment of contact to the last step of the tour, everything went very harmoniously and perfectly. The price-performance ratio is extremely fair and the guide was extraordinarily professional, even in precarious situations, which certainly occur in the monsoon season, he always had advice and always had the opportunity to go a different way. And yes, we were very lucky to see the mountains of the Himalayas and Mount Everest almost without clouds during the monsoon season. Terrific!
