10 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

This is an amazing opportunity and adventure to Everest Base Camp (EBC) in just 10 days! This is a high-altitude trekking adventure to a culturally rich and fascinating region of the Himalayan Mountains. 

Trekkers have been heading to Everest Base Camp since the early 90’s to the exact place where Edmund Hillary (New Zealand) and Tenzing Norgay (Nepal) planned their assault on Mt Everest (8848m). Surrounded by enormous peaks, this trek takes you to a region rich in Tibetan Buddhism and Nepali culture, fauna and flora and offers views of many massive peaks that soar over 8000 meters into the sky. You will also view wonderful alpine lakes and glaciers and pass through Sherpa villages rich in history and traditions, such as the famous Tengboche Monastery. Your trekking permit allows you to venture into the Sagarmatha National Park. A highlight of this trek is heading to the peak of Kala Patthar in the early morning to catch the best views of Mt.Everest anywhere in Nepal. Along the trail you will pass through the exceptionally colorful rhododendron forests and get to see wildlife such as musk deer and yak grazing in the mountains.

Your adventure to EBC begins with a 40-minute plane trip from Kathmandu to Lukla and then a trek to Phakding and on to the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar, referred to as the gateway to Everest. From Namche Bazaar the trail takes us to Tengboche, where there is a Buddhist fortification (Dawa Choling Gompa). The trail then leads to Dingboche with its stunning views of the surrounding mountains. As we ascend to higher altitudes the difficulty increases, requiring us to adjust and acclimatize on the way. We first come to Dingboche and then to Lobuche (4940m) before heading to Everest Base Camp (5,364m). At EBC we get to view the massive Khumbu Glacier that begins at 7,600m and ends at 4,900m. After leaving EBC we then return to Gorak Shep (5185m). Early the following morning we climb to the famous viewpoint at Kala Patthar (5555m) where we have the most magnificent views of Mt. Everest and the Khumbu Glacier. From Kala Patthar we then return to Gorak Shep and descend a steep trail to Namche Bazaar. The final part of our journey takes us back to Lukla and then by plane to Kathmandu.

The Everest Base Camp trek is relatively difficult, but with time spent acclimatizing at lower altitudes it minimizes any risk of altitude sickness and prepares you for higher altitude climbing. 

Sherpa Teams have an excellent reputation for providing an excellent service that includes organizing permits, meals and accommodation on the trek

After a short scenic flight we reach Lukla airport and then continue our trek to Everest Base Camp. We will pass through local villages, beautiful forests and along the banks of the Dudhkoshi River before arriving at Phakding.

This morning we follow the Dudhkoshi River and stop for lunch at Jorsale. We then continue on until we reach Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital of Nepal. You also have some stunning mountain views from here.

We start the day trekking through the Khumbu region before arriving at Phunki Thanga. We then head through the rhododendron forest until we come to Tengboche, the biggest Tibetan Buddhist community in the Khumbu region.

This morning we will wander around Tengboche and visit the Monastery. We will then hit the trail and cross the Dudh Koshi River and the Imja River before arriving at Pangboche. The trail then passes through some chortens and large Mani stone walls. The trail continues through forests of birch, rhododendron and other conifers. Along the trail you will also see Mount Tawache, Mount Ama Dablam and Mount Nuptse.

This morning we initially descend in order to reach the village of Pheriche. We then have a steep climb to reach a yak ranch and from where you can see Tawache Peak (6,542m) and Cholatse (6,440m). We then arrive at Lobuche for our overnight stay.

The trail today takes us through the rough moraine along an undulating path. After around 2 to 3 hours we reach Gorak Shep. We will also traverse the Khumbu Glacier. We then continue until we reach EBC from where we have amazing perspectives of the Khumbu icefall and glacier, Mt. Pumori, and Khumbutse. We will spend time wandering around EBC before heading back to Gorak Shep for the night.

We need to be up early in order to climb up to Kala Pathar (5545m) before sunrise and to capture one of the most excellent view points where you will have 360-degree views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lingtren, Mt. Khumbutse, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Lhotse, and other snow-capped peaks. We will then return to Gorak Shep for breakfast before continuing on to Pheriche.

Today is the last day of our trek and we have a fairly easy trail to follow along the Dudh Koshi River until we arrive back at Lukla where we can celebrate the completion of our trek to EBC.

In the morning, to avoid gusty winds, we head back on a 35-minute scenic flight to Kathmandu. Tonight we will celebrate at a local restaurant and say farewell to our guide and friends we have met on the trek.

Hot shower facilities are available till Gorakshep. The most common type is a bucket shower, usual buckets with tap filled with hot water and placed in a shower room. Hot shower costs from US$ 4 to 15 per use and the price increases along with the elevation. Attached bathrooms and toilets are not available unless you book for a luxury lodge during the EBC trek.

They are not essential though and the walk is manageable without them. It is mostly a personal preference. If you prefer to take the trekking poles with you on the trekking then you can either bring your own pole or buy it from numerous options available in Kathmandu itself.

Our itinerary has been specially tailored to prevent any kind of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) while moving up to higher altitudes. Normally, altitude sickness starts from 3,600 meters and above. You will be trekking at a relatively slow and gradual pace as part of the acclimatization process. Cut off caffeinated, alcoholic and smoking items. Drink at least 4 liters of water a day. Trek slow. Don't skip the acclimatization days. Better to continue with Diamox (if any symptoms show up). Drink Garlic Soup. In the higher elevation, there is less oxygen in the air and this is more so while crossing high passes. Our expert guides will advise you on how to avoid AMS and treat it when/ if required.
