Everest Base Camp Trek - 15 Days

A direct approach to the foot of the world's highest mountain - Mount Everest.

A trek designed to get you real close-up to the 'mother of all peaks' Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world.

Mount Everest Base Camp has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in the 1953. To reach this part of the Himalaya within a limited time, we have designed this two weeks trek to Everest Base Camp which runs directly to and from Lukla (The Gateway to Everest).

The Everest Base Camp trek, a very well-known mountain trek, starts at the upper Phakding and follows the DudhKosi valley which climbs up to the Sherpa capital of Namche, a bustling bazaar that’s a junction for trekkers, the local Sherpa and expeditions en route to the mighty Mt. Everest. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it the kind of walk you will remember for a long, long time.

From Namche, we trek along a high traversing path where we have our first good views of Everest and then head towards Tengboche Monastery, which is a 2 hours climb. The monastery sits at 3867m in a clearing surrounded by dwarf firs and rhododendrons. The monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. The view from this spot, seen to best advantage in the morning, is absolutely mesmerizing and stunning and is rightly deemed to be one of the most magnificent in the world.

We then descend to the ImjaKhola (River) and continue to the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche before finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. We then follow the glacier, first to Lobuche, a vantage point for some spectacular views of the AmaDablam, Tawache and other peaks and then hike to Gorakshep for a breather.

We also have the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar (5555m) from where we can get some awesome views of the Himalayan giants which literally numb your senses with breathless admiration that beholds the eye; and makes up for the lung-bursting climb that took you up there. You soon realize it was absolutely worth it. This also includes fantastic views of the south west face of the colossal Mt. Everest. We then trek down to Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu ice fall before finally making our way back down to Lukla.

Everest Base Camp Luxury trek provides accommodation in 5 star hotels in Kathmandu and Yeti Mountain Home or similar between Lukla to Namche.
