Everest Base Camp Trek



The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most scenic and spectacular trekking in Nepal. The environment is varied and breathtaking, the hotels and trails are of extremely good quality, and the connection with the local culture is simply unforgettable.


  • Enjoy breathtaking views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and other high mountains in Everest Base Camp Trek

  • Exploration of the Sacred Valley (Beyul)  of the auspicious Khumbu region en route to Everest base camp trek

  • Emersion in the spirit and raw beauty of Holy Mt. Kaushiki (For Mt. Everest in Hinduism faith) and Quomolonga (in the local Sherpa language)

  • Witness firsthand the authentic Sherpa culture and centuries-old monasteries

  • Visit UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Kathmandu Valley

Everest Base Camp Trek offers the untamed beauty of Mount Everest. The highest mountain in the world and is surrounded by several other magnificent mountain peaks, Nuptse Shar and Lhotse its near neighbors, and then Ama Dablam ( Mother’s Necklace ), Thamserku Cholatse, and Tawoche border the Khumbu Valley. The Khumbu Valley which we explore in Everest Base Camp Trek is not only the land of soaring peaks but also a holy place for Buddhists and Hindus. Buddhists revere Khumbu Valley as the Beyul, the sacred land of hidden treasures whereas Hindu people worship it as the holy land of Kaushiki.

You will notice on the way to Everest Base Camp Trek that the local Sherpa people call this gigantic mountain “Quomolonga” Mother Goddess of the Universe, while the Nepalese people worship this towering mountain as “Kaushiki”, the Goddess of Mother Earth. Our experienced Himalayan storyteller guides, who will be leading this Everest Base Camp Trek will share their stories of the vibrant Buddhist and Hindu traditions and will make your  Trek a fascinating and educationally exciting experience that you will never forget.

We have several other treks that also visit the Everest Base Camp region – see Everest Three High Passes Trek, Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Valley Trek, and Sherpa Culture Trek

Trekking in Nepal Trips:

Trekking in Nepal designs its itineraries to cater to all the needs and requirements of its clients with safety being the main consideration.

Our Price Policy:

Our quoted price is competitive and reasonable and based on a minimum of two participants and twin sharing basis. Thus, an additional single supplementary charge may apply for the solo trekker. Likewise, we do have the provision of a special discount for any group having more than 6 participants.

Joining Arrangements and Transfers:

Trekking in Nepal covers all airport transfers including airport pickup on arrival day and transfer on departing day. Trekking in Nepal’s representative will meet you at the airport and assist in your transfer to your hotel.

Group Size and Trip Status:

All trips are guaranteed to run once the minimum number of participants is signed up. There is a minimum number of participant requirements of two for restricted areas where a Special Restricted Area Permit is required but for all other areas, one is the minimum number required for a trek to run.


In Kathmandu, Pokhara and Nepalgunj Trekking in Nepal provide 3 Star hotel accommodations.  Whilst on the trip, accommodation will either be provided in local lodges or in comfortable spacious tents. In the cities rooms are generally provided on a twin sharing basis unless you have requested single room occupancy in which case there will be an additional cost supplement. If you are traveling by yourself you will be paired up with someone of the same sex and age. On the trip, you may be asked to use multi-bedded rooms.

Meal Plan:

The city hotel arrangements will be based on B & B only e, g. in Kathmandu and Pokhara, but once on the trip, all meals (Breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be included.

Food & Water:

On the Lodge-based treks, the group will take meals in the lodge, in the case of a camping trek food will be served in the designated dining place by the Trekking in Nepal kitchen crew. A wide variety of Nepalese, Chinese, Continental, and Indian cuisines are provided during the trip.

It is not advised to drink untreated water since water-borne diseases can cause stomach upset and diarrhea in the worst case. Bottled and boiled water is available at the lodge to purchase at an additional cost.  If anyone has special dietary requirements, please let Trekking in Nepal know in advance. With a focus on environmentally friendly trekking ‘Trekking in Nepal’ would request that a reusable drinking bottle system is used by clients to prevent the build-up of a plastic waste mountain in the rural areas

Trip Team Leader & Support Staff:

The trip will be led by a highly experienced, qualified, and professional Nepalese team leader and supported by helpful, friendly, and experienced support staff.

Domestic Flights:

Trekking in Nepal uses only reliable and safe domestic carriers. STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) flights are weather dependent. In the extremely unlikely event of bad weather, fixed-wing flights might be canceled, but chartered helicopters can still fly. Trekking in Nepal, in consultation with clients, will consider the use of chartered helicopters, at the time but additional costs may be incurred.

Baggage Allowance:

Trekking in Nepal recommends that clients take only one duffel bag and a one-day bag. The duffel bag will be carried by a porter or pack animals and should not weigh more than 10 kg, the day bag maxi 5 kg. The maximum baggage allowance for all domestic flights in the mountain sector is only 15 kg. This weight allowance is strictly enforced and excess baggage will be charged.


Some of the Trekking in Nepal involves walking and spending nights above 5,000meters. The human body is quite capable of adapting to a very wide range of altitudes, but it is important to allow enough time to get acclimatized. Trekking in Nepal’s holidays is well crafted taking altitude acclimatization factors into greater consideration. However, you are advised to consult your personal doctor before signing the holiday agreement form that involves walking at high altitudes is suitable for your physiology.

Money Matters:

Approximately USD 500 or equivalent in Euro, GBP, etc. should be sufficient for miscellaneous expenses including lunch and dinners in the cities (Kathmandu and Pokhara), trip crew tips, small souvenirs, soft drinks, and snacks, etc. Using debit or credit cards during the trip will not be accepted, thus it is recommended to carry cash in Nepalese Rupees. However, debit or credit cards are accepted in major restaurants in Kathmandu and Pokhara. It is also possible to withdraw money from ATMs in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Equipment Check List:

Proper equipment is required to make your trip all the more enjoyable and memorable. Thus, Trekking in Nepal recommends you to click on the Equipment Check List link and view it as a guideline. While purchasing holiday equipment, please consider buying lightweight, warm, and quick-drying items in order to keep the weight as minimal as possible.  However, you may store your extra luggage in your Kathmandu hotel free of cost.

Passport and Visas:

All foreigners need a valid passport and valid visa to travel to Nepal. The validity of the passport should be at least six months from the entry date in Nepal. For further information, please follow this link: –

Trekking in Nepal requests you to send our office your passport details once you confirm the trip. Your passport details are needed to book hotels, reserve flights, and prepare necessary trekking permits. Trekking in Nepal’s representative will collect your passport for the trips in the Restricted Area where Special Restricted Area Permit is required once you arrive in Nepal. Your passport will be returned to you either on the same evening or the following morning.

Health & Inoculations:

A healthy body, physical fitness, and a positive frame of mind are key to a successful and enjoyable trip. Thus, Trekking in Nepal recommends you consult your personal doctor for the appropriate check-ups regarding health and inoculations.

Power Supply and Plug:

A regular power supply is available in the major cities and popular trekking destinations of Nepal. When power is available in the villages or lodges on the trek it will be solar. In some areas power is not available so it is recommended that you carry a backup power bank with the right kind of adaptor for your electrical devices and maybe spare camera batteries.  Please open this link for further information if you need an adaptor for your electrical devices.

Preparing for your Trip:

It is always recommended to come on the trip with a healthy body and an adequate level of physical fitness to ensure a more enjoyable experience. Before confirming the trip, get a check-up with your personal doctor and follow his advice. Spending more hours running in the hilly country, swimming, cycling, and practicing breathing exercises are good for developing cardiovascular fitness and stamina. Develop a habit of increasing fluid intake as this practice helps to get acclimatized easily. Reading books about the history, geography, and culture of Nepal helps you to have a better understanding of Nepal, its customs, and festivals.

Best Holiday Seasons:

Generally, there are four seasons in Nepal: – Spring (March to May), Summer/Monsoon (June-August), Autumn (September-November), and Winter (December-February). Spring and autumn seasons are popular trekking seasons in Nepal because the weather remains clear and the mountains are stunningly visible. During the summer monsoon period, there are frequent rain showers and it will get cold during the winter season, but it is less crowded than peak trekking season (Autumn).

Guidance in Tipping:

Tipping is the best way of saying thanks to your trip team leader and support staff. Your trip team leader will advise the group on an appropriate level of tipping. It is always nice for a member of the client group to hand out tips personally. To save any embarrassment it is a good idea to place the tip money in an envelope, so collect sufficient envelopes before your trek starts. Remember some of the staff might not complete the whole trek with you.
