Itinerary

Day 01: Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and Trek to Phakding

We arrive at our first destination of the trip by taking an early flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827 m) The flight will take 40 minutes to complete and the view of huge mountains linking Nepal and Tibet (China) can be enjoyed. Reaching Lukla is guided by a walk towards the Dudh Koshi River from where we can get to Namche Bazaar on the main trail. It is located immediately above Chaunrikharka (2713 m). Continuing on we visit a small village of Ghat (2550 m) and eventually after a short walk we hit Phakding where we will stay the night.

Day 02: Trek to Namche Bazaar

From Phakding, we move through the river to the valley. The path is lined with gorgeous blue pine and rhododendron forest that provides a spectacular view when the spring season flower blooms. We cross Dudh Koshi River at benker, from where we get the captivating view of mountain peaks such as Kusum Kanguru (6396 m) and Thamserku (6623 m). From here we touch Monjo (2835 m) after a lovely walk. Upon crossing back to the right bank meeting Bhote Koshi and Dudh Koshi Rivers the trip goes upstream on flat terrain. After crossing a wide suspension bridge, with the steady pace, we do a walk. The most significant draw from this stage is the picturesque views of peaks like Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Tabuche. Crossing this excellent path, we reach Namche Bazaar where we can all spend the night.

Day 03: Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar

This takes time to adjust to some place we’re not used to in. Therefore, this day of acclimatization helps a lot to get used to altitude. Namche is a small village situated in the largest national park. This place offers both sunrise and sunset experiences with a spectacular panoramic view of the majestic Khumbu peaks and a similar glimpse of Mount Everest. This day, we’ll have the chance to choose a hike to Thami (3810 m) above Bhote Koshi River Valley and a walk to National Park Headquarters to witness the tropical flora and fauna displays and the regular yet special show of Sherpa culture and lifestyle.

Day 04: Trek to Thyangboche

From Namche Bazaar, we move to the headquarters of the park and climb high above the Dudh Kosi River. The Thyangboche road is clearly visible with a monastery situated just below the highest peak and surrounded by peaks of the Himalayas. Regional flora and fauna such as the stunning Danphe Pheasant, the silver fir forest between Shanasa and Trashinga, the Himalayan Thar are also available. Upon entering the nursery in Trashinga, the path goes downhill before we hit the Dudh Koshi River at Phunkitenga (3250 m). After lunch, we move up across steep fir, pine, rhododendron, and black juniper to Thyangboche. The lodge where we stay and the monastery are situated in a beautiful place surrounded by the mountains of the Himalayas in a serene atmosphere. Ama Dablam, Kantega and certainly Mt Everest are the most beautiful peaks seen from this region.

Day 05: Trek to Dingboche

From Thyangboche we slowly climb high above Imja Khola and travel to one of Orsho’s tea houses until crossing the river and old glacial moraines on our way to our Dingboche village hotel. The scenery here is spectacular but if covered from other peaks like Lhotse and Nuptse the vision of Mount Everest is amazing. These are also the massive hills that rise from the valley’s eastern end.

Day 06: Acclimatization day at Dingboche

In addition, Dingboche is a striking collection of small fields enclosed by stone walls that shield the barley crops and potatoes from the cold winds. It is inhabited in the valley meadow mostly through the monsoon months when large numbers of yaks are allowed to graze. At the back of the house, Tabuche’s huge rock seems like we’re heading towards the stars. Chukkung is another feasible option from this location. In this area, the sights are unbelievable; in the southern end of the valley, the towering south face of Lhotse to the north, Island Peak to the middle of the valley and the fluted ice walls of nameless peaks are lined up.

Day 07: Trek to chhukung

We cross stone-filled fields and Imja Khola Valley this day and reach the Himalayan surrounding environment. This continues towards the position of the Yak Herdsman, Bibre. In the trial we get a beautiful mountain views of Ama Dablam and Amphu Labsa. After 3 hours and 30 minutes walk from there we enter Chhukung. At Chhukung we’re staying overnight.

Day 08: Trek to Lobuche (Cross Khongma La Pass)

After having a light breakfast we continue our trek early in the morning to hit the most important part of our entire trek i.e. Khongma leaves. Our destination, Lobuche, has two ways to get to. We can either take the path over a hill across Nuptse glacier moraines to the northwest of Chhukung, or we can walk back to Bibre and continue on the road over Niyang Khola. Cairns and buddhist prayer flag surround the lane. The final slant from this route is the toughest part of our whole journey. The trail turns north by Khumbu Glacier after ascending the moraine which brings our trial to Lobuche. Lobuche stay overnight.

Day 09: Trek to Gorekshep-EBC-Gorekshep

After having a light breakfast we travel from Lobuche towards Gorakshep. On the route, we are boarding towards the parallel Khumbu Glacier direction. Then walking steeply uphill with the steady pace, we reach the Changri Nup Glacier moraines. We travel along the trail filled with cairns showing the way to Gorak Shep’s (5160 m) glacial shore. We don’t stay there, but we push towards the 5380 m (17,600 ft) altitude Everest Base Camp. This offers the Himalayan panoramic view, and vibrant rifts. We are resting there to acclimatize to reduce the risk and extent of altitude sickness and other illness.

Day 10: Trek to Dzongla

Early in the morning we travel to Kala Patthar (5545 m) from where we see amazing views from this incredible point of view. The way up is pretty steep from the hotel, so start very relaxed and try to go up at a lower speed. The rough hill below the Pumori Mountain is Kala Patthar. Because of the height, it’s a hard-hitting climb, but the view from the top is breathtaking, that is beyond our expectations. Upon returning to the lodge we set off for Lobuche, where we stop for lunch. Then we add along Lobuche Khola and turn right towards Dzongla.

Day 11: Trek to Gokyo Lake

We’re moving from Dzongla toward Gokyo Valley. We have breakfast early in the morning this day, and we begin our march. We cross the narrow path that passes through chunks of rock. We can see the largest glacier also from there. The situation on trek becomes easier after passing the snow-filled track. Eventually we get to the top of the pass (5420 m), from where the views of Ama Dablam, Baruntse, and other lower peaks was fantastic. The move is vertical and every conceivable care should be taken. Seeing the fissures are harmful too. We reach down to the Nymagawa valley with the correct walk and with a few hours of further walking, we enter Thangnak and have lunch there. We pass rough bits after lunch, and enter Gokyo Lake. We spend the night in Gokyo village, which takes 45 minutes to reach the Lodge.

Day 12: Gokyo Lake Rest Day

Today is that trek’s final rest day. The trekkers who want to watch Gokyo Ri’s morning scenario wake up early in the morning and climb up the peak (5360 m). Others can have a late breakfast, explore the Gokyo Valley and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Gokyo Ri is the highest mountain in the Khumbu zone of the Himalayas of Nepal. It is situated on the west side of the Ngozumpa glacier. From this location, we can have a spectacular view of four 8000 m peaks like Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Cho Oyu. After experiencing the environmental and cultural beauty of the region, we are moving back to the settlement area of Gokyo where we stay overnight.

Day 13: Trek to Renjola Pass Lungden

We wake up earlier today, as we need to walk more this day. We’re walking from Gokyo this day, passing Renjo La pass and arriving in Lungden. Our path goes north of Gokyo Land, and ascends. As we ascend, if we look back and stop for a while, we’ll have exceptional views of Gokyo Valley with its lake, and background mountains. We continue towards Renjo La Pass (5420 m) and see boulder hop. We reach the top of the pass with the further trip, which is obvious from far away because of the flags of prayer. From the very point of view, we gaze at Nangpa Valley and we have the impression of Mt. Everest and Makalu on our own rear side. The road down is rough and rock slipping occurs quite often making it harder to navigate. We arrive at Glacial Lake after some time, from where valley opens up. We head across open pastures into the valley and enter tiny Arya community.

Day 14: Trek to Thame

We’re all getting tired because of past day’s intense move. So we’re launching our trial lately this day, then going all the way down. We navigate the river Bhote Koshi and walk down to the valley of Nangpa, going through small settlements to finally reach Marlung village where we will have food. We descend from Marlung moving through small settlements before entering Taranga town. Finally, we will reach Thame with some hours of walking.

Day 15: Trek to Phakding

At last, we move towards the conclusion of our journey. From Thame, we walk down on a constructed suspension bridge over Bhote Khola. On the road, we see drawings of Buddhist Stone, Rock faces Tahrs of the Himalayas. Our walk proceeds through the Thamo valley and back to Bazaar Namche. We’re stopping for lunch at Namche Bazaar. After lunch, we move steeply down to Dudh Koshi River’s large suspension bridge. We’re going back to Monjo moving jorsal. We move through Benkar with the best view of Kusum Kangaru through the blue pine, oak and rhododendron forest. Finally, we’ll move to our Phakding lodge where we’ll be spending the night.

Day 16: Trek to Lukla

This is the last day of our trip. To experience the final view of the Everest area, we take our breakfast and take a short walk to the surroundings. We drive around in Lukla this day and enjoy the beautiful views of the cultures and lifestyle of the Himalayas, the greenery and the native Sherpa. We will stay overnight in Lukla

Day 17: Fly to Kathmandu

This is the last day of our entire journey. Early morning this day we have a breakfast and head towards the air terminal to catch the flight to Kathmandu. Our team member will also transfer you to your respective hotel once you reach Kathmandu.

FAQ

The weather forecast says rain/clouds/snow in Lukla on our Flight Day. Are we in for a rough flight?

When you are up in the mountains in Nepal, we would suggest you be ready for anything. Weather forecasts for Lukla are never correct and different sources will give you different information. If it is a really bad day in terms of weather, the airlines will themselves cancel the flight and you might have to wait till the weather clears. Yes, flying in high altitude is never easy, even on a clear sunny day, the plane might face turbulence because of the wind blowing from the mountains. But overall the flight to Lukla is very exciting and it’s an experience that you will never forget

What temperatures can you expect at the EBC during spring and autumn?

These are the best months to do this trek, as the weather is mild and the temperatures range from 12 to 15 degrees. The skies generally remain clear and the days are pleasant and warm. You can expect an occasional spring shower and hazy weather during spring. The mountain views are stunning in September, as there is more snow in the mountains. Nights can be freezing as the temperature dips after sundown.

How much will I be spending on the trail per day?

If you have booked a package with us you won’t be spending much as accommodation and 3 meals are already included in your trip price. You may have to personally pay for items like beverages and drinks, extra snacks, hot showers, electronic device charging, wifi, etc. USD 25 to 35 per day will be adequate.

In case of bad weather if the flight is canceled what will be the alternatives?

If the flight gets canceled due to bad weather there is no alternative but to stay an extra day. You will have to bear the cost of accommodation. Sometimes even when the airlines cancel their flights, helicopter companies offer charters. If you would like, you can take a helicopter flight. This will incur an extra cost and you have to pay for it. 

How can I communicate if there’s an emergency?

There is a mobile network in the Everest Region. If you get a local SIM (Ncell or NTC) you can use your mobile phone to communicate easily. As this is a mountainous area the network may get erratic at times. In most places the network is good enough for internet use and video calls. Our climbing guides also carry a Satellite Phone for emergencies.

What happens if someone from our group gets sick while trekking in the mountains?

Please do note that if you are traveling in a group, a member falling sick won’t disrupt your trip. While the sick person will be taken care of, the rest of the group will be able to continue with the trip.

If someone becomes ill on the trail your trekking guide will take the sick person’s condition on the account and decide he or she shall continue with the trek or return to a lower elevation and wait for the rest of the group. If his or her condition is serious then the person will be flown by air ambulance to Kathmandu or Pokhara for expert medical attention. An assistant will take care of the sick person, while the rest of the group shall proceed onwards and complete the trip as per the itinerary. 

What do you recommend for water along the Everest trek? How many liters a day should we be consuming? How much should we expect to pay for mineral water or boiled water? With everyone looking to purchase water is there ample supply? Does Mountain Hike Nepal provide the water?

You can either buy bottled mineral water or fill up a reusable water bottle with boiled or sterilized water. During the trek, the teahouses or lodges serve you bottled and filtered water which is generally safe and has to be paid for. A liter of water would cost anything between 1 to 4 USD. As you go higher the cost of all commodities, including water, increases. But do note there is no dearth of the scarcity of drinking water at teahouses. We encourage our guests to use iodine and other purifying agents to treat the water before drinking.  You need to drink at least 3-4 liters of water each day to stay hydrated at higher altitudes.  Keeping your body hydrated helps you to keep away the symptoms of altitude sickness.

No, the company won’t provide drinking water or any extra drinks or beverages other than the ones that are specified in the trip cost.

What if I want to do something beyond the itinerary?

If you want to add extra activities and sites to your itinerary it can be done. Our Travel Consultant will help you customize your trip. Just let us know which places you want to visit and what you want to do and we will add these in your itinerary.

How many tips should I give to the guide, porter, and driver?

Although tipping isn’t necessary, it’s a sweet way to show gratitude to the people who helped you enhance your travel experiences. It all relies on how happy and satisfied you are about their services. There’s no fixed amount, but many of our customers offer as tips from a minimum of USD 50 to a maximum of USD 100.

Is it hard to climb Everest Base Camp?

You need to be in good shape and have the ability to walk 6 – 7 hours uphill and downhill per day. This trek is suitable for passionate trekkers. Positive attitude, excellent health, and strong determination are required for a successful finish. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Besides, it is advisable to trek with a highly reputed trek operator like us, with experienced guides who can help you with significant mental preparation with a personal touch.

Regarding the difficulty, the only challenging factor is the altitude. Our Everest Base Camp trek itinerary provides ample time for acclimatization. Neither ropes nor ice picks are needed for this trip and no vertical climbs are involved. Novice travelers in good physical shape, who exercise regularly, has positive attitude, and has healthy heart and lungs can easily complete this adventurous trip.

How long do we stay at Everest Base Camp? Can we spend the night at the Base Camp?

As Everest Base Camp is situated at a high altitude of 5,364 meters, you spend only 1 to 2 hours at the base camp. Since the base camp lies at the foot of the world’s tallest mountain Mount Everest, the hike to EBC is probably the highlight of your trek. Though one cannot view the summit of Mount Everest from the base camp (as the mountain is too huge) you can get close up views of the massive walls of Everest, Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Nuptse. The Khumbu Icefall appears spectacular. Though the icefall lies close to the Base Camp, it is not possible to explore it as you need proper climbing gear to walk on it. But you get to explore the actual base camp of the Everest expedition groups. During the climbing season, it is like a mini-city of tents and you get to meet mountaineers (sometimes celebrities too!) from different countries attempting to summit Mount Everest. After taking pictures and soaking in the magnificent views you descend down to Gorak Shep again. Please do note the visibility of the mountains depends on the weather. If it’s foggy you may not get good views of the mountains.

No, we do not spend the night at Everest Base Camp as there are no teahouses or lodges there. Moreover, it is advisable and more comfortable to spend the night at a lower elevation. After enjoying the views we trek down to Gorak Shep and stay overnight at a local teahouse.

On average how long will we be walking each day?

Each day you can expect 5 to 7 hours of walking, covering around 10 to 14 km. However when you reach 3500m, you will be walking around 5 to 7 hours but the distance covered will be less as you will be walking slowly at higher altitudes. We want you to know that all our itineraries are flexible and can be altered by the weather, geographical, and physical condition of the individual participants.

What sort of toilet facilities will be available on the Everest Trek?

In all our Everest Treks the teahouses that we use have western toilets. In luxury lodges and teahouses in the lower elevations the rooms come with attached bathrooms and hot showers. At higher elevations the facilities may be a bit basic and you may have to share the bathroom with other travelers. Please do note that in case of extreme cold, the water in the toilet basin may freeze and you may have to use an Asian (also known as ‘squat’) style of toilet that is located outside. Please do carry toilet paper rolls with you at all times. It is important that you carry enough rolls of toilet paper and hand sanitizer while trekking.

Do you provide trekking gear and equipment for this trek?

We provide a sleeping bag and down jacket on rent but you need to bring your own personal gear. We can recommend some good stores where you can hire or buy new ones.

What about drinking water during the trek? Is it safe to drink?

Teahouses offer boiled and filtered drinking water to trekkers for a price. Though you can purchase bottled water, we discourage the use of plastic bottled water on the trail because of the adverse effect on the environment. You can bring along with you a reusable bottle and fill it up with drinking water. 

Your guide will check the condition of the water of the filtered water before you purchase it. Please be assured that our guide will thoroughly check whether the water has been boiled and treated properly before you drink it.

What can one expect on a ‘Teahouse Trek’?

Teahouse trekking is one of the most popular ways of trekking in Nepal. Teahouse trekking has almost replaced old-style camping treks in Nepal along the popular trekking routes of Annapurna and Everest regions. Teahouse Trek involves resting or stopping at teahouses or lodges scattered along the trail for the night. The teahouses are locally owned and they provide accommodation and food. While the standard of teahouses varies, most of these establishments usually offer basic services – small rooms (usually on a twin sharing basis with comfortable beds), shared washroom, a heated communal dining area, and a menu with a range of dishes. Some may offer wi-fi and hot shower. As these teahouses are located in remote locations, one should not expect the service of a city hotel while staying in one. But in popular trails like Everest Base Camp trail and Annapurna Base Camp trail one can expect luxury standard accommodations too. 

Can I make payment with my credit card or with my own currency while Everest trekking?

You need to have local currency to purchase items on the trail. While Lukla and Namche in the Everest Region may have lodges that would accept payment with cards, we strongly advise you to carry enough local cash with you to buy essential items en route. You can exchange your currency at any of the money exchange centers in Kathmandu or use your credit or debit card at the local ATMs to get local currency.

Where can I store my extra luggage while trekking?

You can store it at your hotel (most hotels in Kathmandu have free storage facilities) or you can leave it at our office.

Can I get single supplement services in cities and during trekking?

Yes, with additional cost single supplement will be available in the cities and at lower elevations while trekking. At higher elevations there are very few teahouses. During peak season when there is a high demand for rooms, it will be difficult to book single rooms. However, if you are traveling during the off-season a single room can be arranged at all places.

Can you provide more information about your trekking guides?

Most of the guides in our company come from mountainous areas. They are carefully selected on the basis of their experience, leadership skills, and personal aptitude. We provide guides that are experienced and fluent in English. With the objective of sustaining local communities, we employ guides from different ethnic backgrounds who have adequate knowledge about the culture, ecosystem, flora and fauna, geography, and history of Nepal.

Our guides have the required government license to guide tourists. They have all gone through intensive training programs like wilderness first aid, trekking guide training which are certified and approved by the government of Nepal.

Is there WIFI available on the Everest Base Camp trail?

Yes, wifi hotspots are available on the Everest Base Camp trail. But please do keep in mind, due to the mountainous terrain the network may be erratic. Often times the signal gets lost or the strength is poor.

Do I need to bring additional medicine for trekking?

We carry a first-aid box with us while trekking. But if you want you can carry along some essential medicines like ibuprofen, codeine, paracetamol, lozenges, anti-diarrhea tablets, and Diamox for AMS.

How do you avoid altitude sickness?

Please do note, all our trekking itineraries incorporate an adequate number of acclimatization days. You will get an extra day’s rest at a lower elevation to prepare your body for a walk-up in the higher reaches.

AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness usually occurs due to the lack of oxygen in the atmosphere in high altitudes. Our body is not used to walking in high altitude and it requires a lot of time to adapt to thin air in the mountains. Technically there is no way of stopping AMS but you can surely prevent it by following the given tips:

  • Keep your body hydrated. Drink at least 4 liters of water daily.
  • Give up smoking, alcohol, and caffeine, the major causes of dehydration and headache.
  • Go slow- it’s not a race. Take plenty of time to acclimatize to the increase in altitude.
  • Don’t skip the acclimatization day. Take Diamox, an over-the-counter pill used to prevent and reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness.

How long before I need to book Everest Base Camp Trip?

We strongly recommend that you book your trip for a month in advance. We need to book our flights to Lukla earlier, especially during the peak trekking season when a large number of trekkers are present. When you arrive and would like to plan your journey, however, we can also arrange the Last Minute Books!!

Do I require an earlier Trekking Experience?

Many previous observations on trekking are helpful.

Moreover, every beginner or seasoned trekker should be able to complete the trek with good health.

The trek might be simple for those who are used to hiking long distances with a weighted
backpack.

For a fact, those who don’t have these interactions should start jogging, sprinting, cycling, and walking a
couple of weeks before trekking, which helps boost your stamina level and also keeps your body for
good shape. Walk around places nearby, and focus on building the power. The walk is daunting in every way but it is satisfying. You will complete the journey with a little planning and dedication, and tick it off your bucket list.

What kind of insurance do I need for trekking in Nepal? Can I get insurance there?

We would recommend all our clients to purchase travel insurance before booking any of our treks. Trust us you will have a pleasant holiday knowing that you have a good insurance cover. In the event of any sickness or injury, while trekking in the mountains, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation will be considerable. Therefore, traveling with an insurance cover is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up for any of our trips. But be careful while choosing a policy as some policies make special exceptions for adventure travel.

Do read the fine print. Before buying insurance make sure your insurance company is aware of your travel itinerary and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken during the trip. Such as if you are planning to trek or climb (mountaineering expedition) in the Himalayas, your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tour in an urban area, insurance cover of air ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory. While booking a trip with us you need to send us a copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come for the trip.

No, you cannot get insurance in Nepal. Please also note that Mountain Hike Nepal does not arrange or sell insurance.
