Everest Base Camp Difficulty
Travel experts in Nepal have graded the difficulty of the Everest Base Camp trek as “moderate.” This means you will need outstanding fitness for walking 6 to 7 hours daily for about a week. However, there’s no need for mountain climbing skills and gear to complete this trek. Any person with good physical and mental fitness can complete this trek with a few months of preparation. You must engage in cardio exercises such as running, jogging, swimming, and cycling two to three months before the trek. It helps to boost your stamina before you head for the tour. It’s easier than the Everest Three Pass Trek.
The significant Everest base camp trek difficulty is distance and altitude. Everest Base Camp’s distance is about 150 km, and you will cover this distance for eight days. This means you will be walking 15 to 20 km each day. This makes 6 to 7 hours of daily walking, which demands good physical health. Along with distance, the altitude of the Everest base camp, 5300 M, and that of Kala Pathar are also significant challenges during the trek. Once you cross Namche Bazaar, you start to feel the pressure of low oxygen level, making your climb harder. Covering 500 to 1000m daily and including a rest day in Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary dramatically helps you. However, this doesn’t mean you need oxygen for the Everest Base Camp trek.
The weather and temperature of Everest can also be an enormous EBC difficulty are travelling in the off-season of summer and winter. However, with the proper preparation, MyEverestTrip will help you overcome the difficulty of Everest Best Camp. We are committed to making our trekkers comfortable and safe.

Unforeseen weather conditions can also worsen the trekking trails, especially during winter and monsoon.
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 essential to book them beforehand or take necessary precautions. You might even have to share your room with fellow travellers during the peak trekking season.

Everest Base Camp Trek
In mid-November 2021, I went on a tour of Everest Base Camp Trek with My Everest Trip. I was a little worried because I had never been trekking in my life … but I did a survey and found a Puru who is run a trekking company in Nepal, so after much thought, I decided to go with them. In the beginning, I contacted Puru, the company’s Manager I was very satisfied with his interaction and communication with me. I had so many questions and worries about the trip and he was able to guide me and answer all my questions The process on board was smooth and easy.
When I arrived in Nepal, I found that everything was ready from the person who picked me up from the airport to the hotel, some equipment for the trip, a complete introductory meeting about what to expect from the trip, All land transport, and even before I left Nepal for a walk. I’m really glad I made him my guide. a very unique person. he is more than a guide .. he is also a good friend, he made sure I enjoyed it. he still shares his expertise in the mountains, Sherpas, and Nepalese culture. . he always supported me, even on days that I had a hard time due to altitude sickness. he encouraged me and inspired me not to give up our life journey, he always emphasized health and safety first. Despite all the challenges of the trek to Everest Base Camp Trek but I’m so glad I did it and I did it with a very good group of people on My Everest Trip. I highly recommend My Everest Trip if anyone looking for a trek in Nepal.
EBC Trek With My Everest Trip
I have an astonishing encounter! I did the EBC trek with My Everest Trip, a lovely and kind aide. All the groups from My Everest trip were exceptionally mindful, adaptable, and strong during the Trekking as well as in the past and during my outdoor trip. It is tough to go during a pandemic, yet the group was exceptionally proficient and supportive. Many thanks, My Everest Trip ( Puru ). See you soon
Amazing Everest Trek
What an individual-changing trip it ended up being, our aide Hari was five-star, proficient, amicable, with extraordinary information, and he took care of us. I wouldn’t pick one more outing without him; he was only that great. From the first contact with this organization, I realized they were individuals to book with. Every one of my inquiries was responded to rapidly with the specific data I was looking for. As I had investigated, the journey itself was challenging but very satisfying. Again our aide Kewal took all the vital well-being safeguards, permitting us to adapt accurately, telling us every one of the day-by-day things we would insight. Quite often, he would get some information about our actual well-being; without this aide, we would perhaps not have finished the journey, as numerous others we saw were cleared due to wrong acclimatization and speed of which to go to elevation correctly. An enormous thank you to all the group at My Everest Trip. I would enthusiastically suggest them and constantly involve them in further journeys in Nepal.
Everest Base Camp Group Joining Trek
It was a 14-day Everest journey towards the Everest Base camp trek in the Everest region of Khumbu Trek. One of the finest companies or as I call companions, I was able to join a group from this company. There was a good plan for us and thanks to Mr. Puru and his team, who helped us. Our guide or team leader, Mr. Ratna was a friendly and helpful person as I expect and all are happy with his way of guiding.
During the trek, he helped and informed us about all the information we need in facts and history regarding the Everest region. My Everest Trip just added a different flavor to this great Everest experience. They made this trek comfortable and easy for us.
Everest Base camp (EBC ) Trek
I Got good recommendations from my friend about this company ( My Everest Trip ) and especially Mr. Puru who will organize my friend’s trip to Everest base camp ( EBC). The experience was incredible and thanks again to my friend Christy. The entire expedition was well organized by professional guides. Especially my guide hari, he knows all the unique spots, best lodges and all the essential information you need for your trip. I’m so grateful for his help during my travels as I was able to enjoy my time more with the assurance of a guide by my side and once again thanks to the organizer and his company.
Highly Recommended Everest Base Camp Trek
We did our trek to Everest base camp with My Everest Trip. During the trip, we get good lodges and food, a guide and porter, and Flight to Lukla especially everything 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. 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 we see Everest is closed to us and it is so worth it. Exploring the base camp is an amazing adventure of a lifetime. We would like to give many thanks to My Everest Trip and our crew Ratna and Birman for their great effort. We will highly be recommended this trip to our friend and this company who arrange everything without any problems.
Perfect Everest Base Camp Trip
We joined the Everest Base Camp Trek with My Everest Trek in Nepal. When we arrived at Kathmandu airport Our Guide Hari was waiting to receive us After we meet. Him we took the car from the airport to the hotel and he gives for us all the information about our trip and what equipment we need it luckily we buy a few things in Kathmandu which is we forget to take with us. So in the evening owner, Mr. Puru comes and he took us to a good restaurant for well come dinner so we are very impressed when he talks about his courier and became boos and he gives us a few tips about our trek so we have more confidence than to do this trek and he is such a kind person he gives us his WhatsApp number if incase any things happen to call or text me. So We feel comfortable booking our trip with My Everest Trip.

Best Trekking Agencies in Nepal
I did the Everest Base camp Trek, the classic route, last November, and it has been amazing! This is the kind of journey that you have to prepare for well before you go, and I have been assisted step by step by the Kathmandu office, who helped me through the whole process by replying promptly to all the questions that came to my mind 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 I did a tour of this beautiful country at that time.
My Everest Trip I enjoyed it so when I started checking the several agencies that run Everest Base Camp Trek, I decided to choose them; during the trek, my guide Hari answered hundred of times patiently my questions about every single peak we would see. he is an amiable 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 so unique to 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 highly recommend this agency if anyone is looking for trekking or tours in Nepal.
EBC Trek of my life
I participated in this great Trek with my friends. It was thrilling and fun. I trekked on My Everest Trip a few years back, so I had big expectations, and of course, I was not disappointed! Like last time, everything was planned for our arrival, the company even gave us the same guide as last time, so it was like trekking with an old friend.
The EBC trek is lovely,y with a suitable itinerary, great nature, and many culinary places to see.
The days passed so quickly since we had such a good time.
My friends and I are so happy about how My Everest Trip organized this adventure and want to send a special greeting to the manager Mr Puru for doing such a great job. I give my highest recommendation to 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 using 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 many of our questions before we got to Nepal including organizing a customized itinerary. He then personally picked us up from the airport and settled us into a lovely 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 had all these things before we arrived, so it was much easier for us. Krishna was extremely knowledgeable throughout the entire trek.
He knew so much about history, geology, geography, and everything. He was also very switched on in assessing my friends when we started to get slight altitude sickness and changed the itinerary slightly to allow for extra acclimatization. Krishna has done the hike over 50 times. Hence, he knew the trek back to the front and the owners of the tea houses. He always ensured our food was cooked perfectly and our tea boiled sufficiently. When my friends and I suffered altitude sicknesses 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 My Everest Trip and truly feel well looked after!
Do yourself a favour and book with My Everest Trip !! I will be recommending it 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 for a few personal things, this is also a very reasonable price.
Nepal has won my heart and I definitely want to come back for another visit someday 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 an EBC trek. I looked for a company with three criteria: 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 is a charming person to be around. Due to his many years of experience, he has excellent 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 at your starting point by plane 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 is spot on and trouble-free. The best service I could wish for, and I could not feel safer.
I give my best recommendation for Puru and My Everest Trip, and if I return to Nepal, I will choose this company again.
My best wishes for all good things in the years to come.
Everest Base Camp Trek 14 days
It is my first time trekking in Nepal. And my dream was the Everest base camp trek. I am looking for so many trekking agencies asking some questions about this trip but Puru always gives 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 made a plan “what to do before I die” Mt. Everest was on that list. A friend of mine had been to Nepal a few years earlier, and he recommended My Everest Trip. The following day I contacted the company and started corresponding with Puru. We wanted to go in October 2018, and Puru gave me good advice on preparing for the trek.
We planned to see all the sights in Kathmandu for three weeks without rushing through it. Puru planned everything and booked a hotel close to the office. This way, it was straightforward 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 in buying some equipment.
The day we flew to Lukla started a bit cloudy, but after 10 minutes, the sky cleared, and we could enjoy the incredible Himalayas…wow. I can’t describe that feeling … just woohoo.
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 takes care of us, making sure we walk good pace and takes time to enjoy the views and take pictures. This fantastic landscape, the snow-covered peaks, the prayer flags, the suspension bridges (even my girlfriend developed a love for them), and the day arrived when 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, 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 excellent job. They know the importance of safety and do not rush through, leaving out acclimatization days to make a 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 at a lovely restaurant to ”celebrate Happy Trek”, as he put it. He even suggested we do our honeymoon in Nepal … and guess what … that’s precisely what we plan to do!!!
Excellent guide! Once in a lifetime opportunity !
My Everest Trip and Ratna made my experience in Nepal incredible. The service, attention to detail, and knowledge Ratna brought made this an extraordinary trip.
I was hesitant and nervous about undertaking 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!
Best Experience in My Life
My brother and I came to Nepal to do the Everest Base Camp Trek and were fortunate to do it with these 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 recommend this guy if you think of trekking in Nepal; they will not disappoint you!!
Thanks, Puru, for the experience you gave 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 centred 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 the Jumla district. Subsequently, I stayed in Kathmandu, where I travelled extensively. My work, both in and outside Nepal, is centred around agriculture, forestry, and rural development, with a particular interest in nature conservation, non-timber-forest products, and 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, meeting Nepali friends, and a short Himalayan trek. While in Kathmandu, I looked for someone or an agency to facilitate the 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 in the extent of services it provides and the high level of efficiency with which it does so.
I believe many positive company characteristics are thanks to Puru Thapaliya himself. He started as a porter in his native rural area, then quickly became a certified guide, and following this, he 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 were carried out smoothly and at the 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 favour such trips because of their lower tourism density and high offering of authentic cultural aspects and rich natural history and scenery. During the personal communication I’ve had with Puru, he convinced me that he does not only possess the experience and flexibility to support custom-organized trips. He also has the required local contacts to help with such travel. I strongly recommend the services of “My Everest Trip” and Puru. I will surely avail of these services myself later in 2018, together with a small group of friends.
Being a great fan of Nepal
Being a great fan of Nepal, I travelled with Puru on the Mount Everest Base camp trek 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 of guidance. 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 to anybody going on a trek in Nepal. Book your flights to Kathmandu, and he will arrange the rest.

FAQs for Trekking in Nepal
If you’re planning to go trekking in Nepal, here are some frequently asked questions to help you prepare for your adventure.
When is the best time to go trekking in Nepal?
The best time to go trekking in Nepal is between September to November and March to May, when the weather is clear, and the sky is blue. The monsoon season from June to August is the least ideal time due to heavy rainfall and the possibility of landslides.
Is trekking in Nepal difficult?
The level of difficulty varies depending on which trek you choose, but trekking in Nepal can be physically demanding and mentally challenging. It’s essential to do proper training and select a route that matches your skill level. Trekking at higher altitudes may lead to altitude sickness, so it’s crucial to acclimatize properly and take precautions.
How safe is trekking in Nepal?
Trekking in Nepal is a safe adventure if you take proper precautions and follow safety guidelines. Some treks are safe to do without a guide, but it’s recommended to have experienced guides, especially for high-altitude treks above 4,000 meters. Health hazards like altitude and weather changes can make trekking dangerous, but following safety procedures can minimize the risks.
Can I trek in Nepal without a guide?
It’s possible to trek in Nepal without a guide, but it’s recommended to hire a guide or porter, especially if you are a first-time trekker. The guide can help you navigate the trails, communicate with locals, and assist you with any emergencies that may arise during your trek. They provide valuable insights into local culture, customs, and even help carry your belongings.
