The Everest Base Camp Trek is the most famous and well-traveled tourist destination in Nepal. Out of 14 peaks in the world which are higher than eight thousand meters, eight of them are in Nepal. On this trek, four of the eight peaks can be seen which includes Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. Towering Himalayan peaks from Everest to Ama Dablam, picturesque Sherpa villages, and sacred Buddhist monasteries are the aspects that define the magical and inspiring landscape of the Khumbu region in eastern Nepal.

Khumbu is the home of Mount Everest (8,850m/29,050ft) – better known as Sagarmatha among Nepalis and Chomolungma among Tibetan-speaking communities. Located in the Sagarmatha National Park (a World Heritage site), many visitors come to this region to glimpse the world’s highest peak but come away with so much more: an appreciation of the local people who make their home in this high and difficult landscape, a spirit of adventure that brings them back to the Himalayas, and often other individual and personal experiences that encourage their return to Nepal.

The Everest Base Camp Trek includes a tour of Kathmandu the capital of Nepal, in addition to a classic lodge trek in the Khumbu region. It has been on bucket list from people around the world, but not everyone is lucky enough to view the Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. Beyul wants to make your dream come true for this adventure while getting you connected to the people and Mountains.

*Trek price and duration could be changed according to your request. Please drop your message below if you would be needing further amendments.

Please be informed that Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight could get delayed depending upon the weather condition. There are cases where flights are delayed for few hours, or even more one or more days. Hence, beyul likes to advise to get prepared for such long waits at either place. Beyul will definitely do best to avoid such unlikely situations to manage appropriate flights. Beyul could also organize Helicopter rescue in such adverse conditions, upon request. Helicopter charges around $3500 and could lift 4-5 person per flight. We would like to suggest for some extra “Weather” days (1-2 days) to accommodate such delays. Such days could be utilized otherwise under no bad weather days.

FAQs for the Everest Base Camp Trek

 

How long are we going to hike every day?

Most of the days, while climbing, it’s like 4 to 5 hours a day. But, the days after the Everest Base Camp, while descending down will be longer, 6 to 7 hours a day.

 

What kind of training we should get before coming?

As we will be at an altitude of about 5645 meters above sea level, we will keep it slow and enough time to acclimatize to the altitude. We highly recommend starting running at least 5km every day for at least a month before the trek. You should also train on climbing the staircases. We highly recommend you to break in your hiking boots so as to avoid having blisters from new boots.

 

What we’re going to see on the way?

You will get to visit famous Buddhist Monasteries like Tengboche Monastery. The view of mountains is amazing in the way. You will get to see one of the most mountain Ama Dablam (literally means mother holding a child on her lap, in Tibetan/Sherpa language). If you are lucky, you will get to see big herd of Blue Sheep/ Mountain Goat, Musk Deer, Lophophorus/Himalayan Monal (Danphe) & varieties of Birds, Mount Everest, Highest Sherpa settlements, Sherpa culture and community, local market, lots of Yaks, lots of flowers if you come during spring season, among others.

What day will we be at the base camp?

You will be there at Base Camp on the 9th day, when you settle at Tea House in Gorakshep, leave your belongings there and hike to Everest Base Camp.

Do we need porters for the trip?

Well, It all depends on you and budget, if you are fit enough to carry your backpack on your own you won’t need it. However, if you join an organized tour with porters, the porter will carry a large portion of your belonging, but in this case you will have to split the luggage between duffel bag that and your daypack that you will be carrying that includes the daily necessities like snacks, water bottle, camera, sun protection, sunglasses, extra layer, money . The rest of your belongings will be carried by your porter in a duffel bag. To enjoy the trek fullest, It is always wise to have a porter which won’t cost you much.

How much daily training we should do?

We highly recommend you to be in good shape and practice on the stair master for uphill walking. One should start brisk walking at least 2 hours a day with a backpack. We recommend you to go for a day hike with your trekking shoes that you are going to use (Just to break-in the shoes). We highly recommend to skip lift/elevators and use stairs if possible, if you happen to live/work in a high-rise building

 

What kind of crowd there are along the way?

During peak season you will pass lots of trekkers on the way. There will be lots of mule and yaks on the trail, so one must be careful while giving them the pass. When giving the pass one should always be on the hillside not on the fall side since they might push you.

Would we get clean rooms n bathrooms?

Mostly, yes. You will get a room with an attached bathroom. You will get rooms with attached bathrooms in Lukla, Namche, and Khumjung.

 

Early April will it rain? What kind of weather we should expect?

There are very fewer chances for rain during this time of the year. Weather will be sunny during the day and a bit chilly during morning/evening. During day time the temperature will be 25 degree Celsius, however, in the night time the temperature drops down to negative.

How best can we do this trek most enjoyable?

We recommend

  • You should be fit enough for the trek
  • Always start your day early and reach the destination by 2 pm, so that you can rest or go for a walk and explore the surrounding area
  • Try not to miss sunrise and sunset over majestic mountains
  • Starting your day early will increase the chances of wildlife sighting as you will be the first one on the trail before it gets disturbed by other trekkers
  • Try to observe local culture, tradition, lifestyle, and religion as much as possible. You mustn’t be missing any festivals if they happen to coincide with our itinerary
  • You should have a good appetite and healthy food, avoid alcohol and smoke
  • Keep your guide updated on your health status (Like a light headache, upset stomach). So that he can take necessary actions.
  • Hiking in the Himalayas shouldn’t be competition, rather follow your own individual pace
  • One should have proper hiking gears
