Everest Base Camp Trek
Embark an adventure that is the epitome of high-altitude trips as you make way to the Everest Base Camp. The journey offers a lavish spread of the Himalayas decorated with the rich Sherpa culture and rich biodiversity. The Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC Trek) is at the absolute pinnacle of all the Himalayan adventures in the world.
The Everest trekking explores the beautiful Khumbu Valley; the trails offer an enchanting display of the Himalayas. Mountains like Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), and Cho Oyu (8201m) welcome you to the glorious land of the Sherpas. Moreover, the cultural richness of the Sherpa community adds more charm to the EBC Trek. Also, the trek to Mount Everest Base Camp highlights many other attractions in the Everest region of Nepal. All in all, EBC Trek is a glorious celebration of natural and cultural riches on the Himalayas’ foothills.
Best Time for Everest Base Camp Trek
Since the hike to Everest explores high altitude parts of northern Nepal, trekkers must traverse those regions in specific seasons for the best trekking experience. Autumn from September to November is the best time to do EBC Trek. This season offers clear skies to relish the Himalayas and moderate temperatures in the high-altitude areas. Similarly, spring from March to May is also one of the best seasons for EBC Trek. This season is more popular for the vibrant vegetation and abundant wildlife across the Sagarmatha National Park. Although trekking during the winter and summer/ monsoon are also possible, the weather conditions are worse during these seasons. Additionally, the tea houses at higher altitudes are rarely operated due to the adverse climate.
Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty
As the trek heads to the high Himalayas, trekkers have to face a considerable number of challenges. Thus, the EBC Trek is a strenuous trip that crosses several high passes and rigid trails. Additionally, altitude sickness is also a major issue for trekkers. Most of the trail on this Everest trekking lies well-above 3,000 meters. So, trekkers must continue at a steady pace and rest well along the journey. Also, it is crucial to have plenty of time to acclimatize on the trek. The trek spans across the Sagarmatha National Park and covers nearly 62 kilometers on to the Everest Base Camp. Likewise, trekkers have a trek for around 5-6 hours a day that can extend as long as 8-9 hours in some days. All in all, EBC Trek is a difficult journey in the Everest region. Trekkers must be physically fit to do the EBC Trek. Moreover, having a strong mental fortitude is also helpful on the trek. Also, trekkers are advised to prepare with required exercises at least two weeks before the Everest Trekking starts. Ideally, these exercises should help you to strengthen your core, back, leg muscles, and shoulders. Similarly, previous trekking experience or training can be helpful while on the trip.
Everest Base Camp Trek Elevation and Altitude Profile
There is a vast difference in altitude during EBC Trek. The trip starts from the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, at 1,300 meters above the sea level. A short and scenic flight takes you to the gateway to Mount Everest at Lukla (2840m). Hereon, the trek gradually ascends to the Everest Base Camp (5364m). However, the highest altitude on the trek is at Kalapatthar’s viewpoint (5545m).
Everest Base Camp Trek Cost
Many factors affect the total cost of the EBC Trek. This also depends on the season you choose to do the trek, the luxury of food and accommodation, and other unforeseen events. While the trek to Everest Base Camp varies from one traveler to another, the figure is in the ballpark of USD 1250 to 1500. This figure includes the cost for guides and porters along with the entrance permits while trekking in the region. The trip cost also includes accommodation, meals, cross-country flights, ground transportation, and many other essentials. Guides on the EBC Trek charge around USD 25 to 30, whereas porters cost USD 20 to 25. Likewise, the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit costs around USD 20, and the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit costs around USD 35.
Everest Base Camp Trekking Route
The glorious adventure to the base camp Everest begins from Kathmandu with a flight to Lukla. The trail follows the beautiful Dudh Koshi River to Phakding. You embrace the warm welcome of Sherpa culture. Further, the trek heads to Monjo before reaching the entrance of the Sagarmatha National Park. Namche Bazzar, the trade hub of Khumbu Valley, is the next destination on the trek. Here, you spend an extra day to acclimatize and explore the riches in and around Namche. Then, you ascend deep into Khumbu Valley alongside the Imja River. Passing Sherpa villages like Tengboche and Pheriche in the company of Mt. Ama Dablam (6856m), you begin to trek north. The altitude keeps on increasing as you follow the lead of Khumbu Glacier past Lobuche to Gorakshep. Finally, the trip climaxes with a short hike to Everest Base Camp (5364m) and another one to Kalapatthar’s viewpoint. After enjoying the glorious parade of mountains, the return trek begins. The journey back to Lukla descends past sharp stone trails and glaciers to join frequent Sherpa settlements. Further, you continue to retrace your steps to Lukla and take a flight back to Kathmandu.
Additional Information on Everest Base Camp Tour.
While planning the Everest Base Camp Tour, trekkers must be aware of including a few contingency days. Owing to the high altitude and unique geographical location of Lukla Airport, it is a victim of abrupt weather changes. Due to this, the flights to and from Lukla are often delayed or canceled in some cases. Unforeseen weather conditions, especially during winter and monsoon, can also worsen the trekking trails.
Similarly, accommodation is an integral part of any trek and even more so on the Everest tour. However, tea houses and other accommodations might be scarce in the higher regions. So, it is important to book them beforehand or take necessary precautions, if necessary. You might even have to share your room with other fellow travelers during the peak trekking season. Trekkers also have to arrange for their currency exchange and money withdrawal needs before heading to the Everest region. While there are few banks and ATMs at Namche, villages in higher altitudes do not offer similar services.
Trips around EBC Trek
Everest Base Camp Trek is arguably one of the greatest trips in the Himalayas of Nepal. However, it is not the only option to explore the majestic Khumbu Valley and other nearby trekking locations. Thus, the Everest region offers a variety of treks that cater to the needs of travelers. Everest View Trek, Tengboche Monastery Trek, and Everest Panorama Trek are some short and easy treks in the region. Similarly, there are plenty of arduous ventures as well, including Everest 3 Passes Trek, Jiri to EBC Trek, and Gokyo Chola Pass Trek.
Moreover, the treks that traverse the Makalu region to join the EBC trail are even more challenging. As such, Sherpani Col Pass Trek and Makalu to Everest via 3 Cols span both Everest and Makalu regions. All in all, Everest Trekking is the perfect script for your thirst for Himalayan adventure.

During the trip, we get good lodges and food, guide and porter, and Flight to Lukla especially Everythings is well done our Guide Ratna was with us always so that makes us more comfortable cause if we need any help he can manage everything as we need it. Ratna and Porter Birman were very helpful and experienced. They did a great job. And finally, we realize without them we could not manage our trip. They choose a good lodge and food during the trek and. With a happy smile.
After Tengboche, the view was stunning most of the time. We did both base camp and Kalapatthar during our trek. Trekking up to the Kalapatthar was hard but it was a fantastic viewpoint and we see Everest is closed with us and it is so worth. Exploring the base camp is an amazing adventure of a life time. We would like to give many thanks to My Everest Trip and our crew Ratna and Birman for their great effort.

Best Trekking Agencies in Nepal
I have done the Everest Base camp Trek, the classic route, last November and it has been simply amazing! This is the kind of journey that you have to prepare well before you are going and I have been assisted step by step, from the Kathmandu office, who helped me through the whole process replying promptly to all the questions that came to my mind as I was going further with the planning.
Everything from the picking up at the airport to the goodbye dinner has been very well organized, making this journey the experience of a lifetime. I had been to Nepal a few years before and at that time I did a tour of this beautiful country with.
My Everest Trip, I really enjoyed it so when I started checking the several agencies that run Everest Base Camp Trek I decided to choose them, During the trekking my guide Hari answered hundred of times patiently to my questions about every single peak we would see. he is a very friendly person as well as our porter. I also changed a bit the scheduled plan by adding, while we were on our way up, an additional day for trekking to the Ama Dablam Base Camp which is really so amazing then Everest base camp which by the way I strongly recommend), accommodation and many other things) so that it has been possible for me to have that extra experience also. This journey has been one of the best holidays of my life, I have so many beautiful memories!
I will highly recommend this agency if anyone looking trekking or tours in Nepal
EBC Trek of my life
I participated in this great Trek with my friends. It was really thrilling and fun. I trekked with My Everest Trip a few years back, so I had big expectations and of course I was not disappointed! As last time everything was planned at our arrival and the company even gave us the same guide as last time, so it was like trekking with and old friend.
The EBC trek is a very nice trek with good itinerary, great nature and loads of culinary places to see.
The days just passed by so quickly since we were having such a good time.
My friends and I are so happy about the way My Everest Trip organized this adventure and want to send a special greeting for the manager mr. Puru for doing such a great job. I give my highest recommendation for this reliable company and wish you all the best
En oplevelse for livet
Everest base camp trekket var en fantastisk oplevelse. Ruten, naturen, kulturen og alle historierne der er knyttet til det legendariske Mount Everest. Min søster og jeg var slet ikke forberedt på at vi ville blive så meget blæst bagover af denne fantastiske rejse.
Vi fandt My Everest Trip på internettet og bookede turen via hjemmesiden, det var utrolig enkelt og vi havde under hele processen en god dialog med ejeren af bureauet, så vi hele tiden var opdateret og kunne stille alle de spørgsmål der meldte sig.
Bureauet bruger kun certificerede guider og forsikrede portere, hvilket giver en stor tryghed. I det hele taget er nepaleserne utrolig venlige og servicemindede og vi kan ikke sætte en finger på den service der blev ydet os under hele vores ophold i Nepal, ikke kun på selve trekket, men også både før og efter.
Trekket var godt tilrettelagt, dagene planlagt så sikkerheden altid var i højsædet og vores guide var virkelig dygtig til sit arbejde.
At vandre i Himalaya er en oplevelse for livet. Dagene er fulde af indtryk fra de smukke omgivelser, men i høj grad også en indre rejse, hvor man virkelig kommer til at tænke over livet og hvad der har betydning, det var helt utroligt som vi rykkede os mentalt. Den nepalesiske tilgang til livet smitter af på én og som dagene gik, blev vi bedre og bedre til at være til stede i nuet og takle små forhindringer når de dukkede op.
En stor tak skal lyde til bureauet for at give os denne fantastiske oplevelse og vi giver dem vores varmeste anbefalinger
EBC- Helt fantastisk!
Jeg vil gjerne sige takk til My Everest Trip for denne fantastiske turen til Everest base camp.
Fra start til slutt oplevde vi bare hyggelige folk og top service. Både før og under turen fik vi al den informasjon vi trengte og alle vore spøgsmål blev besvart kjapt og præsist.
Himalaya er helt fantastisk, jeg er vant med fjeld hjemme i Norge, men plutselig blir Glittertind bare en liten hump på veien sammenlignt med dette. Trekket var superfint tilrettelagt med passe timer til dagens rute, tid til pause og dage til avklimatisering. Alle klarte sig gjennem uten sykdom nettop fordi vores guide var veldig påpasselig med hvordan vi spiste og drakk, at vi fik passe med pauser og søvn og gik i passe tempo.
Både vores guide og portere var kjempe koselige folk, porterene var ikke så flinke i engelsk, men vores guide lærte os et par nepalesiske ord så vi kunne sige takk og andre små ord og ellers oversatte han bare.
Alle gjorde en kjempe bra job og vi hadde så mye moro hver dag, selv på dagen hvor vi skulle fly tilbake til Kathmandu og ikke kunne komme tilbake på grunn av dårligt vejr fikset de alting på en blund.
Vi vil så gjerne tilbake til Nepal igjen om et par år og så kontakter vi helt sikkert My Everest Trip igjen og da må vi se hvilket eventyr vi drar på, vi vet vi kan stole på de
Tusinn tusinn takk
Me and my friends completed Everest Base Camp Trek with Krishna. I could not recommend this company enough!!!! Firstly, puru was so helpful and answered so many of our questions before we got to Nepal including organizing a customized itinerary for us. He then personally picked us up from the airport and settled us into a very very nice hotel! The next day we met our guide Krishna who took us to fly into Lukla. This was no problem at all My Everest Trip all of this things before we arrived so it is much easy for us . Krishna was extremely knowledgeable throughout the entire trek.
He knew so much about the history, geology, geography and everything in between. He was also very switched on in assessing myself and my friends when we started to get slight altitude sickness and changed the itinerary slightly to allow for some extra acclimatization. Krishna has done the hike over 50 times so knew the trek back to front and the owners of the tea houses. He always ensured our food was cooked to a perfect standard and our tea boiled sufficiently. When my friends and I suffered different bouts of altitude sickness he also carried our bag to alleviate the weight. We felt completely comfortable. so I have kept in regular contact throughout our time in Nepal ensuring that they are still of assistance if we need more recommendations or assistance. You will have a fantastic time in Nepal with Nepal With My Everest Trip and truly feel well looked after!
Do yourself a favor and book with My Everest Trip !! I will be recommending to all my friends and family.
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.
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 agencies asking some questions about this trip but Puru always give me the best answer and he knows each and every question answer, so I chose his company and he sent guide Ratna, he was 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 recommend this company and Ratna.
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!
Me and my brother came to Nepal to do the Everest Base Camp Trek and we were really lucky to have done it with this guys! They took care of all our needs and Yam (our tour guide) was always ready to help us with a big smile. He made our experience of trekking the nicest ever.
Thanks a lot, My Everest Trip for making our trip so neat! I totally recommend this guy if you are thinking of doing some trekking in Nepal, they will definitely not disappoint you!!
Thanks, Puru for the experience you made my brother and my 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 to 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. In 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 a 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 the 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 the international shipment of goods. The small size of the company office believes the extent 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.
