Mount Everest Base Camp Trek perambulate the Khumbu zone to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar. 

The Mount Everest Base Camp Trek 14-Day is an adventurous high-altitude tour in Nepal that starts from busy Kathmandu and goes up to Mount Everest base camp. This quest allows us to immerse ourselves in the lovely mosaic of Sherpa culture, admiring beautiful panoramas from the Himalayas and touching Mount Everest. As adventurers, we mainly chose the Mount Everest Base Camp trek package to demonstrate our love for mountains and nature. It invites those who wish to be cuddled in the arms of nature, sprinkled with brilliant Himalayas. In this journey, we will be transported from the culturally rich valley to Sagarmatha National Park – a mesmerizing wonderland of adventure, tranquillity, culture, and tradition combined with nature.

Mount Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the world's most renowned trails, attracting thousands of adventurers annually. From the Khumbu region, at an altitude where Nepal's Mount Everest reaches about five thousand feet above sea level, this journey begins. It covers a distance of 130 kilometers and takes twelve to fourteen days. It is undoubtedly one of those popular places because it makes us victorious over our vision of life. For many travelers, the promise of a bite to invincibility is exemplified by the inaccessible summit of Mount Everest. Beginning this journey is akin to pilgrimaging to Sagarmatha, Goddess of the Sky. So the name of this terminology comes from 'Sagar,' meaning sky, and Matha, which is nearly equivalent to a word that translates as Head. 

Following the Southeast ridge pathways is easy both technically and popularity-wise. 953 marked a breakthrough when the groundbreaking duo Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay trooped along this path, which has become increasingly noticeable. For 14 days, we followed the same trek to the EBC trek route once traversed by the first Everest conquerors from Lukla. 

Mount Everest Trek is the most famous package in Adventure Altitude Treks. We always focus on providing our clients with the best cost and quality services for Everest Base Camp trips. We have also devised uncomplicated hiking packages for novice and habitual strollers with ample acclimatization days. If you are an authentic enthusiast and relish high-altitude Trips, we recommend this Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary and route.

What Everest Base Camp Trek Distance Will We Cover?

Is There A Everest Base Camp Trek Age Limit?

The Everest Base Camp Trek has no age limit because people of different ages are filled with a spirit for adventuring. There are veteran-age climbers, 72, who have succeeded in reaching the top of Mt Everest, and below are young heroes who reached the tenth of 5 to base camp. 

While there is no absolute age limit, health assessment should be done for alpine nomads of advanced ages, particularly those above 60. The question of the boundary by age is not only limited to numbers; it depends on who has physical health. Before setting out, an alpine wandering for seniors, there are some precautions they need to consider along with adequate preparations. Understanding these age gaps guarantees a safe and pleasant voyage corresponding to Adventure Altitude Treks’s concentrate on safeguarding clients from chances connected with Mount Everest Base Camp Trek while giving them joy.

Do Lukla Flight Cancellations and Delays Frequently Happen?

In all the ambiguities of such circumstances, please be informed that we have been able to transfer our clients by whatever means necessary and see them arrive at Lukla from where this trek begins. We stand firm in supporting your Trek to EBC and have implemented alternative plans to cope with any flight uncertainty. Be reassured that we never fail to preserve your progress despite the challenges with Lukla flights.

The Best Time Of Everest Base Camp Trek

For the people who are up to taking on the Hike to Everest Base Camp, they have to make preparations from all angles. This includes opting for the right time. Thus, when is the right time to undertake this walk? Here is a short summary:

Autumn Season:

In Nepal, the Autumn Season includes months from mid-September to November. Hence, it is regarded as the most favorable season for peak climbing and Everest Base Camp Trek because no threat hinders your activities.

During Autumn, there is very less chance of rainfall and snowfall. So, the trails will be in good condition. It will ensure that your expedition goes smoothly and easily.

Likewise, the weather and clear skies are moderate on Mount Everest Base Camp Trek route with stunning sightseeing opportunities around the Everest Region. Moreover, the festive season of Autumn will bring a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the Nepalese culture and tradition.

Spring Season:

In Nepal, the same happiness is brought in during the Spring Season with a clear and bright sky for 14 Day Everest Base Camp Trek. The rain and wind precipitation is lower than other seasons, so you do not need a break. And the climate is mild, not so cold, and not too warm, therefore walking to Everest Base Camp will be effortless.

Similarly, the colorful scenery during the spring will make your march  EBC Trek more special. The forest goes all green with full-bloomed flowers, which is breathtaking.

And the environment is so clear and clean that it allows explorers to have magnificent views of the surroundings, including the Himalayan peaks like Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and Lhotse.

How difficult is the trek?

Trek to Everest Base Camp is a moderate hike to attempt. The EBC route includes rough paths and slippery landscapes. Therefore, physical preparation is crucial for this climb. It is advisable to have gear that includes hiking poles, high-quality walking boots, backpacks, and first aid kits.

The difficulty level will also vary depending on what type of journeyer you are. If you are a beginner, this might be challenging initially, but with years of hiking experience and proper preparation, the Mount Everest Trek can be accomplished.

Without a doubt, adventure is a difficult journey. If you are an adventurer not afraid of challenges from the Himalayas, this expedition is for you. The explorers on this journey must be fit, courageous individuals with high energy levels, stamina, strength, and endurance. The base camp is 5,316 meters above sea level, and getting there is not easy.

Likewise, the terrain of this Everest Base Camp Trek area cannot be navigated without a high level of physical abilities and hiking experience. It means that you have to have prior hiking experience.

The weather in the Everest Region is dynamic and hazardous. Low temperatures, sudden climate changes, and strong winds could strongly influence the expedition. Areas at high altitudes, like the Mount Everest Trek and Kala Patthar, feature thin air and increasing air pressure, making breathing difficult. A person may also develop altitude sickness and other life-threatening illnesses such as HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) and HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema).

In addition, you need to walk 6–7 hours daily to arrive at your destination, which can drain your physical energy. And the rugged terrain will sap much strength on the edge of hiking and scaling.

Required Permits for Everest Base Camp Trek

Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit

Mt Everest base camp trek is located within the premises of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sagarmatha National Park. It is one of Nepal's most precious natural deposits, covering 1,148 square kilometers (443 square miles). This national park is home to red deer, snow leopard, Red Panda (Habre), and many more. 

Since your Rove mainly passes through the Sagarmatha National Park, getting entry authorization is compulsory. Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit is mainly required for tracking purposes, and its motive is not to harm the wild ecosystem during the trek.

Trekkers can get a Sagarmatha National Park Entry pass from the Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu or the Monjo Checkpost. It costs NPR. 3000 per person for the international trekkers. Similarly, trekkers from SAARC Countries and Nepal must pay NPR. 1000 and NPR. 100 per person, respectively.

Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit:

Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Authorization also acts as an authorization for trekkers setting out on their trek to Base Camp Mt Everest. This Authorization is crucial for every trekker to enjoy an easy and successful trek.

The Trekkers' Information Management Systems (TIMS) Card was replaced with this pass System, which began functioning on October 1, 2018. This permission does have to be paid for, and because it is not in possession by travelers, they are no longer allowed to admire the beautiful Khumbu area. 

It costs NPR. 2000 per person for the Conservation Area Entry Permit

Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit

Acquiring a Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit is also necessary for those who wish to travel the great journey to the EBC Trek. This Mandate is needed for those trekkers who want to follow the route through Jiri. 

If one travels from Jiri to Everest Base Camp, the Mandates must be acquired either from Shivalaya or the Tourism Board in Kathmandu. It costs NPR. 3000 per person to acquire the Gaurishankar Conservation Area Entry Authorization.

Required Documents For Permits

  • Permit fees
  • Copies of valid passport & visa.
  • Passport-size photographs.
  • Travel Insurance.
  • Health reports and clearances.

Guides and Porters for Everest Base Camp Trek

The trek everest base camp should be guided. Earlier, people were allowed to trek solo/independently, but the Nepal Tourism Board has banned it due to the recent rise in missing and injury cases.

Effective April 1, 2023, this law came into force and positively and negatively impacted Nepal's tourism industry. So, having a guide is mandatory. During the Rove, guides can help with navigation instruction, communication skills, and cultural integration, in which porters carry your luggage and equipment to make you comfortable. 

The fee range for hiring guides is between $25 and $35 daily, while porters charge around $20 to $30 daily. Nevertheless, the price in the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek may change according to the type of service that you receive and how much skill your guides and porters gain. 

It is highly recommended that we discuss the price to be consistent with the planned budget for Mount Everest Trek. This covers guides' and porters' services supplied by most trekking agencies. If not, you can employ somebody with a lot about the area and individuals with high-level and long-term experience.

Accommodation and Food on Everest Base Camp Trek

14 Day Everest Base Camp Trek is a tea house trek. While you land at Lukla Airport and then on a short hike to Phakding, you will stay at a tea house. And during your time at Namche Bazaar, you will be staying at a hotel.

Tea houses are found in all places and spots throughout the route. These are the most affordable and common forms of accommodation during this Itineration. The average cost of tea houses ranges between $5 to $7 per night.

Tea houses feature several facilities like shared bedrooms and bathrooms. However, there might be limited electricity and internet. So, carrying an alternative gear is highly recommended.

Hotels at Namche Bazaar on the route offer a wide range of services. They come with a single bedroom with an attached bathroom. Also, electricity and internet services are provided; however, the cost of staying will be quite higher than in tea houses.

Transportation

Transportation is the major factor that plays a vital role in saving your Rove time. On Base Camp Everest Trek most trekkers go for a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, whereas some trekkers opt to travel via road until they reach Lukla.

To reach Lukla, the flight is the quickest route, which only takes around 45 minutes from Tribhuvan International Airport. But if you are traveling via road to Lukla from Kathmandu, be ready to enjoy trip around a week. The road transportation takes you to Ramechhap, including Salleri and Buspa villages, where you can initiate your hike to Lukla.

After you reach Lukla, you will be hiking on the EBC route for the next two weeks until you return to the same place for a return flight to Kathmandu.

How To Reach Everest Base Camp?

14 Day Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary starts with a flight from Tribhuvan International Airport. We must first proceed toward Lukla (Tenzing Norgay Airport). From there, we will begin a short trek towards Phakding, passing through the villages of Chheplung and Nurning. It only takes around four hours to reach Phakding.

From Phakding, the next destination will be Namche Bazaar, the Gate To Everest. It is home to several Sherpa settlements, hotels, and Buddhist culture, where you can immerse fully into the traditional lifestyle. After that, we will continue our trek to Tengboche, where the ancient Tibetan monastery, Tengboche Monastery, lies.

Leaving Tengboche village on the next day, we will head towards Dingboche. We will continue our hike through the Imja Valley and then leave towards Dughla. Passing the Thokla Pass at 4830 meters, we will reach Lobuche.

Again, a high-altitude pass called Lobuche Pass comes before reaching Gorakshep, the last Sherpa settlement in the Everest Region. From Gorakshep, we will push ourselves to Everest Base Camp the next morning, be involved in sightseeing activities, and visit Kala Patthar for a sunrise view.

After completing our activities, we will retrace the same route to reach Lukla.

Physical and Mental Preparations

To start on the Trek to Everest Base Camp, trekkers must first be physically and mentally prepared. As we have already mentioned, this trek is challenging, so trekkers must be physically fit and fine. Their endurance, strength, and stamina should be high to complete this trek successfully.

The reason is simple: trekkers must walk around 6 to 7 hours daily. Most of the trails parts are remote and rugged, requiring much physical strength. Similarly, the trek takes you to over 5,000 meters above sea level, where altitude sickness poses a high risk. To adapt yourself to such high altitudes, trekkers must be able to acclimatize depending on the situation. 

As this adventure poses several health hazards and dangers, trekkers should also be mentally prepared. Many trekkers cancel their trek due to high risks and challenges, but with proper motivation and support from the peer group, trekkers can avoid such dangers and conquer the base camp trek.

Altitude Sickness Concerns

Altitude sickness is a common risk during high-altitude Trek to EBC.  We have often witnessed our clients who haven't acclimatized properly and low-fitness travelers suffering from its effects. The final altitude of the hike is at Kalapathar, 5,545m, and it averages around 4,500. Although the period of acclimatization is sufficient, altitude remains a significant factor. We highlight the necessity of good shape and advise clients to have previous hiking/trekking experience above 3,500m before trekking. Our support in altitude sickness includes close observation, gradual acclimatization, and prompt medical aid if required while at such high altitudes in the Himalayas to enjoy trekking.

Wifi and Communication Services

Ensure you facilitate communication during the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek as much as possible. While you can access wifi at lodges, restaurants, and hotels for an additional fee, phone communication is the primary option at higher altitudes. You should buy a local SIM card in Kathmandu because it will help you while communicating, but remember that mobile signal power decreases with increasing altitudes.

Hot Showers and Electricity

Hot showers can be provided but at a fee. Here's why: This trip may be so costly because gas canisters must be brought to nearby cities' tea houses. Therefore, you will be required to spend about 3 to 5 dollars per shower, depending on the elevation of your teahouses. To conserve energy and cash on your Hike to Everest Base Camp it is not good to take showers often, particularly during colder weather where you may have difficulty removing and putting on garments. Solar power has become a major source of electricity for most tea houses. However, this comes with an upfront investment. Therefore, they may charge you a fee ranging from 3 to five 5 per gadget. Instead, bring a power bank or a portable solar charger to cut down those expenses.

  • Although Mount Everest Base Camp Trek can be done at any seasons , the best time to trek Everest region are Spring ( March-May ) and Fall ( September-November) . With clear skies and no rainfall , one can get the best out of Everest region during these times. However , the trail is mostly crowded by other trekkers as it is the best time trek Everest Base Camp. With extra care , Everest Base Camp trek can be done during monsoon ( June-August) only if your are comfortable with a little rain and mud. The upper Himalayan region experience low rainfall so weather will be mostly clear . The benefit of trekking during off season is the trail is usually quiet with little to no crowd.

     

  • The trail may seems challenging but with enough preperations , it is absolutely safe to trek Everest Base Camp.

  • Trek to Everest Base Camp can be done without hiring guide/porter. However we recommend you to hire a guide/porter. A guide with lots of eperience can provide you a lot of information about the locality , culture, traditions, geography and climatic pattern of the place and also the language barrier wont be problem if you want to connect with locals. And a porter can carry your dufflebag and this will surely ease your trekking. The 6-7 hrs uphill with 15-20 kg on your back may make you feel uncomfortable and fatigues early . A porter can carry upto 25 kg total so that you can enjoy your trek without having to mind about your back.

  • why do people have to get Altitude sickness?

    Especially Nepal is a mountaineering country in the world. located in south Asia there are many of the highest mountains above 8 thousand meters Mount Everest, Makalu, Kanchan Ganga, and Annapurna surrounding Nepal. more trekkers have to plan to visit the highest mountain in Nepal but they have a big issue with mountain altitude sickness. who are interested to do the Nepal trekking need to must preparing the waking to snowy mountains. when they are arriving in Kathmandu starting to Diamox but why they can use the medicine what is the Diamox, is a solution to the problem that does not use Diamox at sea level. I have more than 15 years of trekking guide experience in the snow mountain in Nepal.

    we always support and give good confidence to our valuable able customers my suggestion for those who are going to the highest mountain for trekking and expedition all around the world first need to do light training and find the fitness level for yourself. mountain site, not the same temperature and climate every 1h to changing so you need to use a long slip t-shirt and jumper not open your body in the mountain site. so when you have a get cold and your body power or thinking power is gone less. you think negative wow my got I think I feel altitude sickness. that's the way first you need to think positive altitude sickness is not a direct problem to an altitude sickness first they give us symptoms like blogging your eyes, don't like to eat anything to food, vomiting, and back headache problem so you need to carefully mention the food and health your body is recovering don't care anything you got altitude sickness

    what is the solution of altitude sickness

    we have a great idea to solve altitude sickness in all Himalayan parts of the world. when you are starting to trekking you need to care about your health first thing is the food you can eat green vegetables and organic food so you got energy, and you need to eat garlic soup once a day 1 time don't be trying to meat item in highest mountain area if they have to fresh its ok but mountain site, not fresh meat item so you need to control for above the 4000 m high and energy bar chocolate when you are hungry you need to eat at least your body get power to move further step so not attack the altitude sickness. every trekker needs to take five liters of water per day so when the traveler uses the Diamox so when time your body is dry you need to recycle for body and trekking time swatting to use the good thermal. for example, mount Everest base camp trekking

    if travelers have altitude sickness what we do

    when trekkers have to get altitude sickness first step you need to come to lowes1000 elevation to where you are and the second step we need to eat soup & energy food, after that use 1 pers Diamox and take rested 2hours then they feel much better if their feet try to go again to further if they have to still problem need to camp back don't try to go more altitude. sometimes people try to go to high altitudes that's a way people go die in a mountain first need to care for yourself if any trekkers carefully follow that information differently they got a destination. the last thing is Diamox is not a medicine that just sorts time gives to control your body time if can don't drink water that time problem the side effect

    Reflecting on the Wonders of Everest Base Camp Trek

    The experience of starting the Everest Base Camp trek with Adventure Altitude Treks for fifteen days was thrilling. The magnificent views of snow-capped peaks exceeded all expectations. Rohit, the manager himself, showed unbelievable commitment by providing a perfect guide who was attentive and friendly along the journey. However, the trek partially distinguished itself because Rohit was personally involved with frequent follow-ups that reflected a sense of care and responsibility. In particular, the concern for my well-being changed our business relationship into a lifelong friendship. It took only two days for Ramesh to become a confidant. I am excited for my next adventure in Nepal, accompanied by the same team of efficient and loyal people -– a perfect combination.
