The Magnificence and Glory

Everest trek offers you some amazing views of mountains along with a peek into the life of the Sherpas. Along the way, you’ll enter the Sagarmatha National Park which is a UNESCO world heritage site, and visit several monasteries. This is the journey that Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary initiated in 1953.

Everest Base Camp entails the challenge of hiking for about 9 - 11 days in high altitudes depending upon your itinerary. Moreover, you traverse through narrow sloppy paths and steep inclines as you aim for the base camp of Everest.

We begin by taking a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. The flight itself is quite stunning as you can view some stunning views from the window. We’ll then land on Lukla which is at a height of 2840 meters. We begin our hike from Lukla. It will take us ten days to reach the final destination that is Kaala Patthar, which is at 5545 meters. The mountains that you can view up close are endless. These include Lhotse, Nuptse, Kwangde, Ama Dablam, Kangtega, and Everest, among others.

Additionally, the town of Namche Bazaar is an exceptional sight in itself. Filled with vibrant homes and teahouses, Namche Bazaar is also known as the gateway to the high Himalayas.

Best Season for Everest base camp trek

Now that you are convinced to trek the Everest Base Camp, you must be eager to know about the best trekking Months for Everest Base Camp Trek, so let us provide you with the complete breakdown of the season so you can choose the best for you:

Everest Base Camp Trek in Spring Season (Early March to Late May):

Spring is the peak season of the year, and it is the best season for trekking in the Everest region, with clear skies and less to no rainfall. Sunny days make the weather warm and dry during the day, making the views and scenery more stunning compared to other seasons. Being a peak season of the year, it is considered the best season for traveling and is comparatively easier than any other season; however, the short Everest Base Camp Trek Trail is crowded compared to other seasons. During this season, the days are warmer due to sunlight, but the occasional snowfall might make the night chilly.
Moreover, during the Spring season, the seasonal flowers such as rhododendron blossoms from 1,200 meters to 3,600 meters, and the whole forest inside the UNESCO-listed world heritage site of Sagarmatha National Park, lights up with rhododendrons as well as other different seasonal flowers. The spring season also offers a high possibility of witnessing high-altitude wildlife such as Snow Leopards, Himalayan Tahr, Musk Deer, Clouded leopards, Red Pandas, and Wild Yak.
Furthermore, the spring season offers unblocked panoramic views of high peaks like Mount Everest(8,848 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,463 m), Cho Oyu (8,188 m), Nuptse (7,861 m), Ama Dablam (6,812 m), Pumori (6,189 m), and Changtse (7,553 m) and many more.

Everest Base Camp Trek in Autumn Season (Late August to Early November):

Autumn season is also considered the best season for a Short Everest Base Camp Trek alongside Spring. As the perfect season, it has neither warm hot days nor freezing cold nights as winter; however, it is a bit more chilly than normal weather conditions. 
Moreover, due to favorable conditions and climate for the trek, it is as crowded as the spring season, if not even more crowded. The teashops, cafes, hotels, and lodges are filled with tourists and visitors, so you need to have the best company, with excellent guides who can manage your accommodations even during packed seasons filled with unforeseen situations for Everest Base Camp Trek in Autumn Season.
Furthermore, the perfect view of Mt. Everest, surrounding high summits, fresh mountain air, deep-blue sky, and friendly locals further enhances your experience this season. 

Everest Base Camp Trek in Winter Season( Mid-November to Feburary)

Winter Season(Nepal's coldest season) starts from Mid-November to feburary, which is the most challenging season for high-altitude trekking. Not only the Everest Trek all of the other trekking in the Himalayas are more challenging in winter than in any other season.
Moreover, while the days are mildly cold, the nights are extremely cold, with temperatures below -10 degrees Celsius. Additionally, the trails get filled with heavy snow, so equipment in good condition and experienced guides are a must to navigate the route. 
Trekkers that can bear coldness, with high physical fitness, well-equipped equipment, and an experienced guide, can trek in this season. Rewarding the avid trekkers, this season offers less crowded routes, and snow-capped peaks gleam brighter than ever, covered in a pristine white that mocks other seasons, asserting its dominance as a winter wonderland. Trekking this season gives true adventure experiences; however, it is mostly recommended for experienced hikers.

Everest Base Camp Trek in Monsoon Season (June to Mid-September):

The Monsoon season in Nepal starts in June and lasts up to Mid- September; it is also called the hot and wet season of the year.
This is the least preferred traveling season as this season invites heavy rainfall causing muddy trails, blurred views  and more risky adventures that novice trekkers can rarely tackle.
Moreover, constant rain and cloudy skies with hot summer days may make the trip challenging; however, the trails are pristine and isolated with very few trekkers, and this season offers a more unique experience than any other season with greenery, and you can witness Himalayan monals above the timberline in the open.
Furthermore, if you wish to trek in the summer season, make more room for your vacation days, as flights to Lukla are only available in safe and clear weather conditions, so it may take more days than the planned itinerary. Comparatively, the Mt Everest trek to base camp attracts few trekkers during this season than in other seasons.

 

Everest Base Camp Temperature and Weather.

The temperature of the Everest base camp varies vastly during the day and night. The average temperature reaches about 8-12 degrees Celsius during the day time whereas it plunges to -3 to -20 degrees Celsius at night time.

The weather on the base camp is always unpredictable. No one knows the best month or season appropriate for ascending the base camp situated at an altitude of 5364m. However, we could listen to the weather forecast on a daily basis and opt for our ascension. If the weather changes mid-way then, we can return back and try the next day. So, extra 1 or 2 days are very necessary during this expedition.

Everest Base Camp Trek Via Gokyo Lake.

Many trekkers may prefer to ascend base camp via Gokyo. They can witness the Grandeur of Gokyo lakes, the world’s highest freshwater lakes. From there, we can soar up to Gokyo Ri at an altitude of 5375 meters. Gokyo Ri is famed for the unblemished and breathtaking view of the peak of Everest. After that, we can opt to usurp the Cho la pass at an altitude of 5420 meters. Finally, the Everest base camp can be conquered after passing through these spectacular places. In this way, Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lake is put to completion.

Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek.

Have you ever considered reaching Everest's base camp, witnessing the majestic mountains, enjoying the sunrise views from Kalapatthar, and just coming directly to Kathmandu without walking a single step?Maybe then you will be able to decide and trek the Luxury Everest base camp, as fewer walking days in your itinerary sound fantastic and easygoing.
Yes, you read that right! Enjoy all the breathtaking and awe-inspiring moments and highlights of the Everest base camp trek, enjoy the sunrise at the world's highest point, and be back in Kathmandu the same day. The Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek saves your days without missing any of the major locations during the trek, as the descending trail will mostly follow the same path we took during the climb.
This Luxury Base Camp Trek is also known as the Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter return, and this trek option also offers accommodation at Everest View Hotel, it is a five-star hotel from where you can see the majestic Mt.Everest from your hotel and accommodation on other best hotels with respect to your itinerary.
The luxury trek ends after the views of the golden sunrise on Mt.Everest, worth remembering for many years from the viewpoint of Kalapatthar and returning to Gorekshep. We have breakfast at Gorakshep and take our helicopter flight back to Kathmandu, eliminating the remaining days from your short Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary.

Acclimatization in Namche Bazaar and trek to Everest View Hotel:

Today, we acclimatize in Namche Bazaar to prevent altitude sickness. After breakfast, we start visiting Namche Bazaar, which offers all kinds of services you wouldn't expect in the mountain area.

Namche Bazaar is the popular acclimatizing spot for trekkers in the Khumbu region, and it offers several lodgings and stores catering to all kinds of needs of travelers. You can enjoy various services, from internet cafes, German bakeries, little cafes, and restaurants to an Irish pub. Namche even has had electricity access from the nearby Thame-Namche hydropower plant (600 KW) since October 1995.

Even on the acclimation day, we will still hike to the Syangboche Airport and Everest Hotel. Syangboche Airport is the highest airport in the world. On the other hand, Everest Hotel offers some splendid views of mountains like Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, etc. We will also visit the Sherpa Culture Museum and click some photos in Photo Gallery. Overnight stay at Everest View Hotel. 

Acclimatization in Dingboche and trek to Nangkartshang Peak (5083 m/16,677 ft):

Dingboche is the last Sherpa Village during the Short Everest Base Camp Trek and the best place to rest and acclimatize before attempting heights over 4,500 m.
Dingbohce is the ultimate sherpa village of the Everest region and one of the most popular trekking destinations, at an altitude of 4,410 m, as it offers mesmerizing views of Himalayan peaks without reaching any further heights. Saying it's an acclimatization day, we won't make you sit still and do nothing, as we also understand the value of your time and know that you want to make the most of it. The trek from Dingboche to Nangkartshang Peak (5083 m/16,677 ft) and back to Dingboche will take nearly 6 hours.
The Nangkartshang Peak offers enchanting views of Mt. Tawache (6,495 m/ 21309ft), Ama Dablam, Island Peak, Lhoste, Everest, and Pumori. Furthermore, after days of trekking, you can rest your body at Dingboche, catch up with the latest news, share your experiences with your friends online, or talk with your family over the phone. Dingbohce is also the best place for acclimatization as it has a library for book lovers and an internet cafe that uses a satellite link.
It is not possible to reach Dingboche by road, and all goods are carried by Yak or porters. The climate of Dingboche is always cool, rainy in the summer, and dry and cold in the winter because of the high altitude.

Our trekking journey will start with a flight to Lukla.

Accommodation details

We will be spending 12 nights with the best available hotel and lodging services. 

It is also no issue to get single private rooms for solo travellers.

Meals

As you climb higher the choices of food will get short. But you will be having nutritious food as the trek demands. Basic meals for lunch and dinner that we get around the trekking regions are national foods such as Daal, Bhaat, Tarkari, pickles, and curry. For breakfast, you will get bread, fruits, local porridge, sandwiches, noodles, and soft drinks.

We do not recommend meat items because of quality concerns in higher regions. It is best you take fresh vegetables, fruits, hot liquids, green tea, lemon tea, and garlic soup that assists you in your trekking journey.

1: Is Everest Base Camp trek possible with children and older adults?
This trek is moderately challenging for adults but, tagging children on this expedition may escalate the difficulty. However, with additional care and attention from the guardians, this trek can be easily concluded. Also, the parents may opt to hire an extra guide to look after their children.

2: Are permits required for the EBC trek?
The permits required for the Everest Base Camp Trek are the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit and the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit.
The Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit costs 20$ per person. However, this permit isn’t available from Kathmandu so you need to get it at Lukla, at the start of your trek. Moreover, if you stay more than four weeks the permit cost increases to 25$ per person. 
The Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit: It is a permit for entering the Sagarmatha National Park, and you can obtain this permit in Kathmandu. As we will be passing through the Sagarmatha National Park during our trek we need the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit, which costs 30$ per person.

3: What happens if we get sick on the way?
The foremost thing to do before inaugurating the trek is to do a regular medical check-up. However, if you get altitude sickness or any other sickness along the way then, we will consult the local doctors first and review if you can continue the journey. If you are fit enough to continue then, we will resume the journey and if no improvements are seen in your health, then we will be forced to send you back. In those cases, we will refund after calculating all the expenditures up to sick days on mutual consent.

4: How long does the EBC trek typically take?
The short Everest Base Camp Trek takes 10 days, which includes proper acclimatization during the high altitudes. However, if you are a beginner, we suggest you acclimatize at Namche Bazaar and Dingboche, and the "rest days" are not wasted as you get to make some side trips to Everest Hotel and Nangkartshang Peak. 
Moreover, you can also trek at your own pace, and even if you decide to make a side trip, we are totally flexible and cater to your every request, but additional days in your itinerary are required. So, to complete the 80-mile (130km) roundtrip that starts from Lukla, a short trek of 10 days, 12 days of treks for beginners, and a fair number of days according to your needs and side trip locations for personalized treks is the required duration.

5: What is the best time for the Everest Base Camp trek?
The best time of year for Nepal Everest Trekking depends on the objective of your trek. For a normal trekking experience, the best weather is during Spring (March-May) or Fall / Autumn(October-November), but an isolated and challenging trek can only be experienced in Monsoon(June to Mid-August), while adventurous trekkers and expedition groups opt to choose Winter (November to January) to witness the crystal clear snow-capped peaks. Another easiest way to get to the Mt.Everest Base Camp is the EBC helicopter tour, and it can be taken during any season, excluding the monsoon rains, as helicopters rarely fly in this season. You can choose the weather that fits you with your detailed explanation above.

6: Are there any age restrictions or limitations for the EBC trek?
While there are no minimum or maximum age restrictions for the EBC trek, we suggest that the children need to be of a minimum of 10 years, and if trekking with older people maximum of 70 years of age. Moreover, while you trek with children or older adults, we suggest the itinerary for 12 days with 2 days for acclimatization.

7: Is it necessary to hire a guide or porter for the EBC trek?
While most of the region requires a mandatory guide during trekking in Nepal, the authorities in the Everest region didn't agree to this rule so that you can go solo trekking to the Everest Base Camp. While solo trekking is a preference, we don't recommend you trek this trail as a solo traveler, as it will be challenging to navigate the terrain during snowfall. Moreover, the hotels and lodges will be packed during peak seasons, so you need a guide's assistance to secure accommodation during the trek.
Altitude sickness is common in the Everest region if you don't follow proper acclimatization routines. While guides are knowledgeable about the routes and resting points, even if you fall sick during the trek, we can immediately evacuate you or take you to the nearest hospital as per your condition. Moreover, during paths such as Dingboche to Lobuche, you must follow a guide as it can be pretty challenging to trek this route alone.

8: Can I connect the EBC trek to any other treks in the Everest Region?
Yes, you can connect the Everest Base Camp trek to the Everest Three Passes Trek and the Gokyo Lake Trek.

9: How much money to take on Everest Base Camp Trek?
The amount of money to take on the Everest Base Camp Trek depends on your lifestyle, what you want to eat, where you want to stay, and so on. We will try to give you some ranges:
First of all, ATMs can be used until Namche and there are no more ATMs after Namche so you need to take your money from Namche so that you don’t get in trouble later. If you have already booked a package with a travel agency then most of the expenses are covered, the only expenses you will need are for hot bath, wifi, charging, souvenirs, hard drinks(Not recommended), and extra enjoyment. So you can take around 30,000 NPR and it will be enough if you use it wisely. Moreover, if you have a lavish spending habit then we recommend you take 50,000 NPR.
However, if you are not on packages with any company then we suggest you carry at least 1,00,000 NPR excluding the guide & porter fees and flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and Lukla to Kathmandu. So just for your food, accommodations, souvenirs, hot baths, chargings, wifi, and entertainment activities during the trek.

10: Is it safe to trek to Everest base camp?
While the season you trek in plays a major role in trekking challenges and difficulty, Everest Base Camp Trek is safe for trekking. As it is a popular trekking route, the trails are well-maintained and accommodations facilities are easily found during this trek.
Additionally, most trekkers are scared about altitude sickness, but with the perfect itinerary and acclimatization points the chance of altitude sickness can be reduced drastically.
Preparing even more safety for beginners, we have an itinerary for acclimatization in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche further reducing the chances of Altitude sickness.
Moreover, the Everest Base Camp itself is perfectly safe and you can even see some colorful tents everywhere during peak climbing seasons.

Short Everest Base Camp Trek Company Reviews

EBC: An amazing experience, Personnel touch and Managed Safely

Wow! Such a great trip to EBC with my daughter, Piper and Jeevan from North Nepal Trek. A bucket list trip for sure. Thanks to the all team for all our questions beforehand, briefing us before departure and a celebration on our return to Kathmandu.
Jeewan safely guided Piper and I from Lukla to EBC through all the mountains, landscapes, local villages, food, customs on the route. Jeewan was very informative with a couple of side trips to local monasteries. He was great to chat to about our experience and was genuinely interested in ensuring we met our goal and enjoyed ourselves.
Jeewan made the trip manageable by giving sound information about how to look after ourselves, how much water to drink, what types of food would help and what pace we should walk at.
The tea house culture was fantastic, meeting all the other trekkers and playing Dumblo (card game) with the guides. Great fun!
Thanks to everyone at North Nepal Trek !!
