This guide provides comprehensive information on everything you need to know about the Everest Base Camp Trek, from the cost and duration to the best time to visit and the preparation required.

An Overview

The Everest Base Camp Trek is a 130-kilometre journey that takes you through diverse landscapes, from lush forests and quaint villages to snow-capped peaks and alpine meadows. The trek culminates in the awe-inspiring moment of reaching the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain, Mt. Everest. The trek is challenging, requiring good physical fitness and proper acclimatization, but the rewards are well worth the effort.

Physical Fitness and Acclimatization

The trek involves several hours of walking daily, ascending and descending steep trails, and climbing to high altitudes. Listening to your body and taking the necessary rest days is essential to prevent altitude sickness.

Before reaching Everest Base Camp, the trek takes you through several Sherpa villages, including Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep. The return journey follows the same route, allowing ample time to soak in the region’s stunning landscapes and rich culture.

We really had a great time visiting Nepal. There we had Kathmandu and Pokhara city tours, trekkings and helicopter flight to Everest which was an awesome experience. Everything was planned, organized and booked by Trek Nepal Himalayas, including domestic flights and hotels. The hotels were incredibly welcoming, including the tea house we stayed at Damphus. Badri did a wonderful job attending all our requests and answering all our questions patiently and very, very quickly. It was a pleasure meet him in person. With no doubts, it was one of the best trips I have ever had in my life. Nepal is a very beautiful country to visit with many interesting sightseeing places and a wonderful people who knows how to make you feel welcomed and happy. Thanks also to Govinda, our guide in Pokhara and Ranjan, our guide in Kathmandu. Both of them did an amazing job. I strongly recommend this company if you wish to visit Nepal. For sure I will be back! 😊
