One of the most famous trails in the world, Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek brings you face to face with the world’s highest mountain – Mt. Everest (8848.86m). The mountain was first summited in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary. Since then, people have traveled from all over the world to get a glimpse of the legendary mountain. The trek lies within Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, and the world’s highest national park. The park includes numerous snow-capped mountains, glaciers, valleys, lakes, and trails, and is home to the Sherpa people. If we’re lucky we may run into one of the rare animal species that inhabit the Khumbu region. This trek is a physically demanding journey that requires good fitness and acclimatization but is incredibly rewarding. As we climb higher into the mountains, our spirits are filled with the energy that the mountains give us.

Everest Base Camp trek is physically demanding and hence, you need a good level of fitness before you head off. However, anyone craving adventure and thrill in life can complete this trek with just 2-3 months of physical training. On an average of 5 to 7 hours of trekking with 400- 800 meters’ typical elevation gain per day, you will have the best 14 days of your life during the trek.

Everest Base Camp Trek is the most popular trekking trail not only in Nepal but also in the whole world. Every year, more than 45,000 people head to the Everest region, and 90% of them stop at Everest Base Camp. Our 14-day Everest Base Camp Trek Package will present you with the captivating beauty of Himalayan ranges, Buddhist monasteries including the famous Tengboche Monastery, and picturesque villages and let you dive into the Sherpa culture while enjoying the dense rhododendron forests, mesmerizing rivers, and magical sunrise and sunset from Kalapatthar.

Breeze Adventure presents you with the adventurous and thrilling 14-day Everest Base Camp Trek Package with the assurance of everlasting memory for a lifetime. You can accomplish the trek with us even if you don’t have prior trekking experience. We have designed the trek based on our professional experience and adequate acclimation days to make it easier and safer. So, our Everest Base Camp Trek Package Itinerary is AMS-friendly. If you are looking for a budget, group joining, and time-friendly trekking package, the 14-day Everest Base Camp Trek Package is ideal for you!

Best time to do Everest Base Camp Trek

The best time for the Everest Base Camp Trek is autumn (September to November) and spring (February end to early May). The view these days is crystal clear and you can get a mesmerizing view of Skyscraping Mountains and natural landscapes.

Spring is great for climbers as well. Ice is solid rock and it is safe for climbing. You can enjoy the colorful spring flowers and tents on the way as well as meet the summiteers.

Winter starts in December and continues up to January's end. The trail is less crowded due to the cold weather so you can take it all for yourself. Celebrating New Year or Christmas at Everest Base Camp or in the Himalayas is an awesome idea after all!

To help acclimatize, we take a short day hike up to Sagarmatha National Park Museum and Khumjung Village.  The supposed Yeti scalp at the monastery and the Everest Viewpoint are memorable moments of the hike. Also, from the museum, we can see a perfect view of Mt.

Essential Information

Meals On EBC Trek

When it comes to the Everest Base Camp Trek, meals are an important aspect to consider. With Breeze Adventure, you can look forward to a variety of delicious and diverse food options in the Everest region. As a general rule, meals are included in the trip price, giving you the opportunity to try both local and international dishes during your trek. Bon appétit!

Our guides are available to help you choose the right meals and to recommend dishes to try. You can expect to have breakfast in the morning, lunch in the afternoon, and dinner in the evening. Breakfast options may include toast, omelets, chapatis, porridge, pancakes, and boiled eggs. For lunch and dinner, you may have the chance to try fried noodles, pizza, dal bhat (a Nepalese national dish), potato rostis, thukpa, macaroni, and boiled local vegetables, among other options. We are dedicated to ensuring that you have a satisfying and enjoyable dining experience during your Everest Base Camp Trek.

Accommodation on EBC Trek

Tea houses are a combination of guest houses, restaurants, and dining halls that are commonly found along the trekking routes in Nepal. Most tea houses offer private rooms, although in busy seasons and at high altitudes, these may not always be available. The rooms are typically basic, with two beds and minimal furnishings, and warm blankets are usually provided. Bathrooms are shared and may have either squat-type or western-style toilets. Most tea houses have running water, although it may be cold, and a few may have hot water (gas heaters) available for an additional fee.

In the dining room lounge, you'll find a metal stove used for heating and often for cooking as well. Above Tengboche, rooms may not have electric lighting unless the village has hydroelectric power, but the dining room usually has solar lighting. Some tea houses now also have electricity for charging small electronic devices like phones and cameras, although there may be a charge for this service.

During a tea house trek, you'll typically have breakfast and dinner at the tea house and lunch at one of the trailside restaurants. Every tea house serves the traditional Nepali dish of dal bhat (rice and lentils) as well as a variety of other foods like rice, vegetables, noodles, potatoes, and soup. Some may offer Western-style dishes like pizza, pasta, and fries with a Nepali twist. Soft drinks, snacks, and beer are available at most tea houses and trailside restaurants, and you'll find Nepali milk tea served everywhere.

All tea houses have boiled water available for trekkers, and we encourage you to avoid purchasing bottled water on the trail to reduce environmental waste. Plastic bottles can be difficult to dispose of and have become a significant problem in the region.

Acclimatization Days on EBC Trek

As the elevation increases quickly, it’s dangerous to continue without acclimatizing as oxygen level decreases at higher altitudes. So, acclimatization days are crucial during the EBC trek. We will have two acclimatization days on our Everest Base Camp Trek, one at Namche Bazaar (3440m) and the other in Dingboche (4,450m). We will visit viewpoints to get amazing views of Mt. Amadablam, Makalu, Baruntse, Lhotse, and many more while acclimatizing.

Pacing each day on the Trail

A good pace on Everest Base Camp is key to a successful EBC Trek. Your pace makes a huge difference in the high altitude. All hikers should keep a slow and steady pace while walking on the trail above 3,000m. Our guide leads at a very gentle pace so you have a successful trek.

Laundry on Everest Trekking

Some of the hotels we use offer laundry services for an additional charge. However, there may be times when you need or want to do your laundry, so we recommend bringing a non-polluting, biodegradable soap. This will help protect the environment and ensure that you can sustainably clean your clothes.

Visas and Entry Requirements

You will need a valid passport with at least six months of validity remaining. It's important to check the visa requirements for your destination(s) before you travel, as they can vary depending on your country of origin and your destination. You can contact your local embassy or consulate or consult with a travel agent for the most current information. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documentation, and we recommend verifying this information on your own as well. We do our best to keep the following visa information up to date, but rules and regulations can change suddenly. We provide this information in a good faith, but please understand that you are ultimately responsible for obtaining and maintaining the necessary visas for your trip.

Budget for Your Trip

Everyone has different spending habits, so the amount of money you'll need for drinks, shopping, and tipping can vary widely. When planning your trip, please keep in mind your spending habits and budget accordingly. You may also want to consider the following specific recommendations when it comes to money management:

Travel Insurance

All travelers on our trips are required to have travel insurance. This is a mandatory requirement to join the group. Our CEO will check to see that you have appropriate coverage before you can join the trip. Your insurance policy must include medical coverage with a minimum of $200,000 for emergency rescue and repatriation. It is also strongly recommended that the policy covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment, loss of luggage, and personal effects. If you have credit card insurance, we will need a receipt or credit card statement showing that you have purchased the trip with a credit card in your name. Please contact your bank to find out which insurer they partner with, the level of coverage offered, and the emergency contact number.

The EBC Trek Package | Group Trek | Private Trek

Are you planning a trek with a group of friends or family? At Breeze Adventure, we offer both group and private trek options. If you're organizing a group, you may be eligible for discounts based on the size of your team. Simply click on the 'We offer group discounts' link on the right to view our price list and see the discounts available.

Please note that if Breeze Adventure assembles the group, discounts will not be offered. No matter the size of your group, we can accommodate you and provide a group leader, porter (one porter for every two trekkers), and an assistant guide (for groups of more than 11 trekkers) to ensure a successful and enjoyable trek.

A typical day on the Everest Trek

Each day of the trek will offer a unique experience that includes enjoying the scenery, taking photos, and exploring local villages. Qualified expert Sherpas will provide information and historical context about the places you visit as you trek. Most of your luggage will be carried by porters, but you may need to bring a small bag for your valuables.

We typically begin the day's walk between 7 and 8 AM, depending on the length and nature of the trek. After walking for three to four hours, we will stop for lunch and a rest before continuing in the afternoon. The afternoon walk is typically shorter, lasting two to three hours. When we reach our overnight lodging (lodge, tea house, or tent), you can enjoy snacks and then have free time to explore nearby areas.

Dinner is served around 6 or 7 PM. After dinner, you will have time for casual conversations. The expedition leader/guide will also provide a briefing about the plan for the following day. You can spend the rest of the evening playing board games, watching mountaineering documentaries, learning Nepali words, or reading books before going to sleep.

Electricity, battery recharge, and water on EBC Trekking

Wi-fi is generally available at all lodges and hotels where you will be staying.

In addition to packed mineral water, you can also carry boiled water or use water purification pills during the trek. Electricity for charging cameras and mobile devices is available at an additional cost at all lodges.

Everest Base Camp Trek Safety

At Breeze Adventure, the safety, security, and satisfaction of our clients are our top priority. We take every precaution to ensure your well-being during the trip, including carrying necessary gear, equipment, and first aid kits. Our leaders and guides have received extensive first-aid training. If any trekker becomes ill due to altitude sickness, we will assess the situation and take appropriate action to ensure the safety of all team members. In case of an emergency, a rescue helicopter is always on standby to bring you back from higher elevations. Our team will stay together for safety and there is no risk of getting lost in the challenging terrain.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness is a critical situation. If recognized in the early stage, it is not so dangerous; however, it can leave severe long-term damage to your body if prolonged. Treatment is possible, but if you hydrate yourself, maintain a healthy pace, and acclimate, you can prevent it.

People start to feel altitude sickness after 3000 meters. If you get it, you must descend at least 300-1,000m as soon as possible. But don’t worry, our team will take good care of you!

a) Acute Mountain Sickness:

Acute Mountain Sickness is the most common altitude sickness. It can happen to anyone who has never experienced a high elevation in their life. Minor symptoms can happen at an altitude of 1500m-3000m. This makes people feel nauseous and dizzy, have headaches, and have muscle aches. Drinking enough water and taking an extra day for acclimatization will help to recover if you feel early symptoms.

b) High Altitude Pulmonary Edema:

This is also caused by a deficiency of oxygen in our bodies. When there is less oxygen, our lungs are under pressure and start to fill with fluid. The symptoms are similar to pneumonia. It feels like a slow and painful poison on our bodies so we need to descend as soon as possible. It becomes dangerous to walk and breathe so you need to be carried by a guide, or horse or take a helicopter evacuation. Our well-experienced Sherpa guide will take care of you and help you avoid HAPE on our Everest Base Camp Trek.

c) High Altitude Cerebral Edema:

Again caused by a lack of oxygen in our body, cerebral edema happens when there is fluid in our brain. It makes us lose coordination, have trouble walking, and get a severe deep headache that cannot be cured by taking medicine. So, we must descend to the lower elevation as soon as possible. Our Sherpa guides are trained to recognize the early phases and they will take care of you in any kind of mountain sickness.

Better safety for your Everest Base Camp Trek

The trail is safe from avalanches but still, you need to be careful while hiking. Don’t tease the Yaks, choose the inside lane while donkeys pass on the trail and let heavy-load carrying porters pass first. Some trails are a bit narrow, so don’t walk on the Cliffside as rocks might be loose. Avoid using side trails as only yaks and experienced local porters use them. Lastly, visit your doctor before heading for the trek to be safe.

Important Considerations for EBC Trek

Are you excited to embark on a breathtaking adventure at the Everest Base Camp? Before you set out on your trek, it's important to make sure you're well-prepared and acknowledge the possible scenarios that lie ahead. To help you have the best possible experience on your EBC trek, here are a few important things to consider as you plan your trip:

  • Due to heavy air traffic at Kathmandu Airport, all flights to the Everest region are currently operating from Ramechap Manthali Airport. Manthali is located about a 5-hour drive from Kathmandu, so trekkers must leave Kathmandu at 1:00 am to make the morning flight. Alternatively, trekkers can stay in Manthali the night before to avoid the need for an early morning drive. It should be noted that there are no flights available from morning to evening due to high winds in the afternoon.
  • Flights to and from Lukla may be disrupted due to poor weather conditions at Manthali and Lukla airports. It is highly recommended to include 1-2 extra days in your itinerary to account for potential delays or cancellations. To minimize the risk of missing your international flight, it is advisable not to book a flight on Monday if you are scheduled to fly from Lukla on Sunday. Instead, consider booking for Tuesday or Thursday as an alternative.
  • To avoid the early morning drive from Kathmandu to Manthali, you may choose to fly by helicopter from Kathmandu to Lukla at an additional cost of approximately $300-$500. The price of the helicopter flight is subject to change depending on weather conditions and demand.
  • There is no additional fee for the package rate for solo travelers. However, if you are traveling alone and wish for a single room, please add on the single supplement during checkout.
  • Please pack lightly and efficiently, as our porters are only permitted to carry a maximum of 20 kg. We will provide you with a packing list and a duffle bag that is easy for porters to carry.
  • All flights to Lukla have a weight limit of 15 kg per person. If your luggage exceeds this weight limit, you will be charged an additional fee of 150 Rupees per kg at the airport. It is recommended to avoid exceeding the weight limit to avoid additional fees.
  • After you confirm the trip, please provide us with a copy of your passport as we need it to book flights between Manthali and Lukla.
  • The price of the trek includes three meals per day. This does not include any drinks or snacks. While breakfast is included in Kathmandu, lunch and dinner are not.
  • Hot showers in the mountains are available for an additional cost of $4-$6. Charging your battery costs an additional $2-$4.
  • If you want to stay connected to the outside world during your trip, you can purchase a Wi-Fi card in Lukla or Namche Bazaar (Everest Link) for $30. This card provides 10-20 GB of data for use over 30 days in the Everest region. Please note that the quality of the Wi-Fi may vary depending on the weather and location.
  • The weather in the mountains can change rapidly, so please be understanding if there are any delays. Please pay attention to and follow the instructions of your guide if the trip itinerary needs to be altered due to poor weather conditions.
  • Drones are strictly prohibited in the Everest region without a special permit. This is because there are many emergency helicopter flights in the area, and the region is home to the highest national park in the world, which was registered as a World Heritage Site in 1979. Obtaining a permit for drones is a lengthy and complicated process, so it is best to leave your drone at home.

Note:-

Please be assured that Breeze Adventure manages our treks to the highest standards. Your safety and satisfaction are our priority. We will support you to the best of our abilities with any issues that may arise. From time to time flights to and from Lukla may be delayed due to weather conditions. It is often worthwhile to include a day or two extra in your schedule to be used in the event of a delay, or if you require a little extra time during the trek. We will work with you to ensure you get the most from your trek and visit to Nepal.

Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days FAQs

  • If more than 40,000 trekkers are making the trip every year, why can’t you? The trek is not difficult at all. It is quite safe and rewarding, the only difficulty being the high altitude. So, people of all ages, sizes, and shapes can train beforehand and make a trip to the Everest Base Camp. Acclimatizing for a couple of days in a trip of 14 days (including pre and post-night at Kathmandu) would avoid probable altitude sickness. You can go for short or express EBC trek as well if you have previous hiking experience.

  • Everest Base Camp Trek is just a slow hike on a man-made trail, not a rigorous mountain climb. But you will hike 5-6 hours each day for two weeks, so don’t underestimate this trip. Also, you need not be a marathon runner or fitness freak to make this trip successful. With proper acclimatization, a slow pace, and solid preparation, everyone can complete this trek. If you don’t have experience walking uphill, you might need 7-10 weeks of training to build your stamina and cardio endurance. Don’t forget to consult your doctor before you train or start the trek to EBC!

  • The weight limit for luggage is 10 kg per trekker. One porter will be assigned to every two trekkers, and the combined luggage for both trekkers should not exceed 20 kg. We do not overload our porters.

    You may need to bring a small knapsack or backpack for your valuables and important items. Only bring essential items. Excess baggage can be left at your hotel or Breeze Adventure Pvt Ltd store at no cost.

    If you are willing to take a heavy bag with you, we can provide a personal perter at an additional cost.

  • During the trek, you will have access to internet services at lodges for a small fee. Once you reach higher altitudes, communication will primarily be through the phone. Breeze Adventure will keep in touch with all clients at least once a day through our trek leader using various methods such as Signal, WhatsApp, phone, and Messenger to ensure your safety and well-being.

    Signal strength may be weak at higher elevations, but you can purchase a local SIM card in Kathmandu to improve connectivity.

  • Everest Base Camp stands at an elevation of 17,598 feet (5,364 meters) above sea level. The journey to reach it begins at an elevation of 5,364 meters in Kathmandu and culminates at a peak of 18,192 feet (5,555 meters) at Kala Patthar.

  • There is not any road access to Lukla yet. So we must fly from Kathmandu/ Ramechap to Lukla for the Everest Base Camp Trek. However, the road is building up to Lukla and it would be ready in a few years. If you want to avoid the flight to and from Lukla, you could add a few days to the itinerary and start your Everest Base Camp Trek trek from Phaplu. On this itinerary, you would drive to Phaplu, Nunthala and start the trek up to Lukla and continue up to Everest Base Camp on the same trail.

  • There is not any guesthouse at the Everest Base Camp. Everest Base Camp is located above the Khumbu glacier so it is not possible to build a guesthouse. There is a space for the tent camp for the expedition groups. However, if you are willing to sleep at EBC and come to Nepal during March, or April, we can manage a night stay at the expedition group’s tent at an additional cost.

  • It's important to pack as lightly as possible to keep you on the move, right? But don't worry about carrying all of your gear yourself, we provide one porter for every two travelers and we will give you a waterproof duffel bag to carry your trekking gear. This will make it easier for you to enjoy the trip without being weighed down by heavy luggage.

    Please note that the maximum weight limit for porter-carried luggage is 10 kg (22 lbs) per person, and the weight limit for luggage on the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is also 10 kg (22 lbs) with a hand luggage limit of 5 kg (11 lbs). Some of your luggage can be left in Kathmandu (although the hotel may charge a storage fee), but you'll need to bring all your trekking gear with you.

    Please carefully review the checklist in the trip notes for details on what to bring for the trek. You'll need to bring a comfortable, medium-sized day pack to carry the items you'll need during the day. Look for a pack with a waist strap or padded waist belt for added comfort. Remember that the weather can be changeable at high altitudes, so layered clothing is recommended year-round.

  • Yes, obviously this trek is for you! This trek leads you into the high valley of the Himalayas. All you need is hiking experience and strong determination. People who have never been up to 200m in their life also have made it all the way to EBC without any altitude sickness. While hiking, you must remember to go slow and steady. This trek does not have any age limit. 80+ years old people also reached Everest Base Camp, as well as 6-year-old children. This Trek is for all-age people around the world who have wanted to accomplish their bucket list dream. As long as you do some preparation and follow our guides, you should have no problem reaching base camp.

  • Singapore to Gokyo Lakes EBC Trek! Life-Time Experience!

    We are very happy trekking to Everest with Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes. We started our journey on March 13 and ended on 26th of March. We trek to Gokyo Lakes first and went to Everest Base Camp via Chola Pass. The view from Gokyo Ri was so amazing! The lake and Mountain views were superb.

    Thank you very much Kishwor for recommending to add Gokyo Lakes to our trip. The Everest Base Camp part was so beautiful. We hike to Kalapatthar in the evening and the sunset view from the top of Kalapatthar was just amazing! It was cold but worth the view of Mt. Everest with sunset lights!

    Hiking to Everest Base Camp was another excitement! Thank you to our guide for guiding us very safely to Gokyo, Kalapatthar, and EBC. We can not make it without our guide and porters' help. Thank you very much Kishwor Advikari for organizing the Amazing trek to Gokyo Ri, Chola Pass, and Everest Base Camp. We highly recommend this company for trekking in Nepal Himalayas.
