Overview

The Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC) is one of the most enthralling ways to go trekking in Nepal. It has long been on the priority list of adventure seekers around the world and with its picturesque mountain peaks and the warm loyalty offered by the indigenous Sherpa locals, it is easy to see why.

Everest Base Camp Trek is a two week Everest trekking package here in Nepal, beginning with the Kathmandu to Lukla flight which has long been famed for the breath taking views it offers those on their way to begin their hike to Everest.

The exciting and extensive Everest base camp itinerary then has our trekkers starting at Phakding. From here you will climb to Dudh Khosi Valley, Namche Bazaar and Gorak Shep, before finally reaching Everest Base Camp at an astonishing height of 5,367 m. After reaching the base of the amazing Mount Everest, get ready to marvel at the massive and magnificent Himalayas – this jaw-dropping and picturesque landscape giving you the best view of your life.

After reaching Everest base camp, you will later trek to the view point at Kalapathar, a beautiful walk that will lead you through trails of dense rhododendrons, fragrant magnolias and lush fir forests. The deep valley will leave you in awe and the hospitality bestowed by the locals in Namche Bazaar will make you feel at home. The monasteries on the way will also give you an insight into the culture and architecture of the Buddhist community, making EBC trek a scenic as well as spiritual journey for travel fanatics.

Many people ask about the Everest Base Camp Trek difficulty, and although the routes along the trails are strenuous, we ensure that you are supported throughout your journey to its highest point (Everest base camp height: 5,367m). There are also many Everest viewpoints that make ideal spots to rest along the way and take in the breath taking views of snowcapped mountains such as Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8481m), and Cho Oyu (8201m).

As well as this trek to Everest, My Everest Trip operates various Everest trekking packages along with other options for trekking in Nepal. We have an outstanding team of knowledgeable trekking guides and aptly experienced sherpas to give you an enjoyable, comfortable and stress free trekking experience, when on an Everest base camp tour.

Everest – A dream come through

Doing this trek in the spring of 2019 was a dream come through. Dreaming about this for years, building high
expectations and Puru did not let me down. First of all the trek itself is nice, but the kind and well prepared staff made this an even bigger experience. Always helpful and making sure I was safe and comfortable.
Considering everything is included, except from a few personal things, this is also very reasonable price.
Nepal has won my heart and I definitely want to come back for another visit some day and do another adventure with the people from My Everest Trip.

EBC Trek With My Everest Trip

Thank you so much Puru and Krishna for this wonderful trek to Everest Base Camp.
You offer the best service with good personalities and professionalism. Doing the EBC trek with you was a pleasure and I would love to do it again some day on another trek.
For all my fellow adventure seekers around the world I recommend My Everest Trip.

Fantastisk service fra My Everest Trip

Jeg vil gerne takke Puru for en helt fantastisk service i forbindelse med min rejse til Nepal og mit trek til Everest Base Camp. Dagen efter jeg ankom til Kathmandu var jeg så uheldig er pådrage mig et maveonde der gjorde det svært for mig at gennemføre trekket. Puru sørgede for at jeg kom på hospitalet og assisterede mig med at kommunikere med lægen. Uden at kny skubbede han turen et par dage så jeg kunne nå at blive rask. Han tilbød mig også et andet trek hvis jeg hellere ville have et kortere, men da jeg havde en uge at give af efter trekket var det ikke et problem.

Efter et par dage havde jeg det bedre og kunne tage af sted. Jeg fik en super venlig guide, Yam, som under hele trekket sikrede sig at jeg havde det godt og ikke blev syg igen, han var meget påpasselig med hvad jeg spiste og sørgede for at jeg fik de pauser jeg havde brug for.

Jeg er rigtig glad for at jeg valgte at gennemføre trekket som planlagt, også selvom det betød at jeg havde færre dage i Kathmandu efterfølgende. Jeg har sjældent oplevet så storslået natur og så venlige mennesker overalt hvor vi kom frem. EBC trekket er virkelig anbefalelsesværdigt for alle der elsker at vandre i bjergene.

Jeg har aldrig tidligere oplevet så høj grad af service og omsorg som jeg oplevede med Puru og hans personale hos My Everest Trip og jeg tager virkelig hatten af for at der stadig findes den slags helt specielle mennesker.

Tusind tak for en helt fantastisk oplevelse, jeg kan slet ikke anbefale jer nok!

Your Trekking Partner in Nepal

I did previous the Annapurna Base Camp with My Everest Trip and was impressed by the way they manage their trek, so I had no doubt when I wanted to do the Everest Base Camp; I wanted to go with this agency again. Puru is very easy going and he always hires the best people and actually I was lucky to go with Ratna again. I’m sure the guides and the porters did this trek so many times, but it doesn’t become routine to them when it comes to how to treat their clients. It’s a nice safety precaution they know the trails so well, but they have the greatest respect for the clients who experience everything for the first time. I don’t think Ratna ever gets tired of telling his stories and it is obvious he holds great love for his country and the mountains.

You can always be sure Puru does everything in his power to give you the best trek possible. I think actually the only thing he can’t provide for is nice weather! Before my trek he assisted me in buying some equipment and made sure I get a good bargain.

I would never go to another company,  My Everest Trip is my only trekking partner in Nepal.

EBC Trek With My Everest Trip

I was fortunate to find My Everest Trip when searching the internet for EBC trek. I looked for company with 3 criteria in mind. Price, safety and service. Reading the itinerary for EBC from My Everest Trip I could see they put the acclimatization days necessary, the hours of daily walking are reasonable and there are no hidden costs.

Puru took the time to guide this trek himself and he is a very pleasant person to be around. Due to his many years of experience he has great knowledge about his Mountains and his clients, he is patient and always polite and he knows exactly when to step in with help and good advice and when to leave you in peace.

I understand why the EBC is a popular trekking destination and arriving your starting point by plain just adds so much value to the experience. Walking with a good guide who shares his knowledge and takes his time to answer questions is a blessing.

I have only good things to say about how My Everest Trip planned this trek. Transport, accommodation, food, guiding … everything spot on and trouble free. The best service I could wish for and I could not feel more safe.

I give my best recommendation for Puru and My Everest Trip and if I return Nepal I will choose this company again.

My best wishes for all good things in years to come.

Everest Base Camp Trek 14 days

It is my first time trekking in Nepal. And my dream was Everest base camp trek. I am looking so many trekking agency asking some question about this Tip but puru always give me best answer and he know each and every question answer , so i chose  his company  and he send guide Ratna were very helpful and developed a good itinerary for us.

We enjoyed the daily hikes, mountain views and accommodation very much and Ratna was incredibly helpful and jovial throughout the trip. Puru was there for us when we had to cut our trip short and even met us at the hospital to ensure that our friend was OK and even helped us with the change in plans, which was truly very thoughtful and helpful.

I will highly recommended this company.

EBC …. Dream Of my life

Some years ago I make a plan “what to do before I die”  Mt. Everest was on that list.   A friend of mine had been in Nepal a few years earlier and he recommended My Everest Trip. The next morning I contacted the company and started corresponding with Puru. We wanted to go in the October 2018 and Puru gave me many good advice how to prepare for the trek.

We planned for 3 weeks because we wanted to see all the sights in Kathmandu also without rushing through it. Puru planned everything and booked hotel close to the office. This way it was very easy for us to go there when we wanted a guide for sightseeing or ask for advice if we wanted to go on our own. He also assisted us buying for some equipment.

The day we fly to Lukla started out a bit cloudy, but after 10 minutes the sky cleared and we could enjoy the most amazing view of the Himalayas…wow.. I can’t describe that feeling … just wooooww.

On day 2 of the trek we reached Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest and what a place! So vibrant. We were happy the next day was acclimatization day so we had time to explore the surroundings. The following days Tengboche and Dingboche. Ratna always taking care of us, make sure we walk good pace and take time to enjoy the views and take pictures. This amazing landscape, the snow-covered peaks, the prayer flags, the suspension bridges (even my girlfriend developed love for them) and then the day arrived where we reached the Everest Base Camp. I was blown away. The Queen of my life standing there with the king of the mountains behind her.  So I did something I had not prepared for. I picked a small rock from the ground and went down on my knee and asked her to marry me. Luckily Ratna was quick to capture this special moment on camera. And (lucky me) she said yes!

This trek was fantastic in all aspects. My Everest Trip did an amazing job. They know the importance of safety, do not rush through leaving out acclimatization days to make good profit or cut any corners short. All the staff is polite and kind and speak good English. When we returned to Kathmandu Puru took us for dinner to a very nice restaurant to ”celebrate Happy Trek” as he put it. He even suggested we do our honeymoon in Nepal … and guess what … that’s exactly what we are planning to do!!!

excellent guide! Once in a lifetime opportunity!

My Everest Trip and Ratna made my experience in Nepal incredible. The service and attention to detail as well as the knowledge brought by Ratna made this for a really special trip. I was hesitant and nervous to undertake such an arduous trek–to Everest Base Camp–but with the proper preparation and support and Ratna’s smile, we all had a blast.
Thank you Ratna!

Thanks Puru for the experience you made my brother and me experience, if we come back to Nepal we will contact you again.

A trek to remember

Excellent Facilitation of a short Himalayan Trek . I’m a regular visitor of Nepal, and have been so since the early eighties (of the past century). My visits to Nepal are predominantly centered around work or conducting professional studies. I continue such visits into the present. My early years in Nepal, I lived in the Western (Karnali-Beri) Region and was based in Jumla district. Subsequently I had my residence in Kathmandu, from where I undertook extensive travel across much of the country. My work, both in and outside Nepal, is centered around agriculture, forestry, rural development, with special interest in nature conservation, non-timber-forest-products and specifically medicinal plants. The Himalayan region is well known for the latter. My most recent visit to Nepal was in November 2017. This visit combined professional activities with meeting of Nepali friends and a short Himalayan trek. While in Kathmandu I looked for someone or an agency to facilitate required trekking permits, road transport and flight arrangements. I relied for these services on Mr. Puru Thapaliya of My Everest Trip, after meeting him in his Thamel – Chhetrapati office. Initially Puru assisted me with international shipment of goods. The small size of the company office belies the extend of services it provides and the high level of efficiency with which it does so. I believe, many of the positive company characteristics are thanks to Puru Thapaliya himself. He started off as a porter in his native rural area, then quickly became a certified guide and following this started his own business. This means, he knows the trekking business in Nepal from the inside out. I learned to know Puru as a dedicated travel agent / service provider, who regularly keeps track of you even when you undertake a short not too complicated trek (Jiri – Lukla). It needs no explanation that the preparatory services to arrange this trip where carried out smoothly and moreover at a most reasonable cost. I usually opt for individual or simple guided trips in case remote areas are concerned. In 2017 my available time for logistical preparation and trekking did not allow for more complex trips such as Dolpo, Upper Mustang or Arun Valley. In Nepal. I’m favoring such trips because of their lower tourism density and high offering of authentic cultural aspects as well as rich natural history and scenery. During the personal communication I’ve had with Puru, he convinced me that he does not only possess experience and flexibility to support custom organized trips. He also has the required local contacts to support such travel. I do strongly recommend the services of “My Everest Trip” and Puru. For sure I will avail of these services myself later in 2018, this together with a small group of friends.

Being a great fan of Nepal

Being a great fan of Nepal, I travelled with Puru on Mount Everest Base camp trek a while back in 2009. It was thoroughly well organized and Puru was exceptional in his service and always made sure that we were safe, comfortable and well motivated (which is sometimes needed!). What I very much appreciated was his style in guiding. I was travelling  with my partner and he respected that we needed our space but was always close by should we need anything. I can highly recommend Puru for anybody going on a trek in Nepal. Just book your flights to Kathmandu and he will make sure to arrange the rest.
