Everest Base Camp Trek Overview
Have you always dreamed of hiking to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain – Mount Everest (8,848m/29,029ft)? Well now you can, and we promise that your Mt Everest Base Camp trek with us will be all that you dreamed of!
Trekking beyond the base camp to the summit of Kala Patthar with the most spectacular views of Everest is every bit as wonderful and amazing as you might imagine. From start to finish, this trek is packed full of adventure. The stunning natural beauty will take your breath away, time after time. You’ll discover new levels of personal endurance and accomplish feats you never thought possible. You’ll experience the fun and laid back culture of the Sherpa. Come face to face with working yaks, and you’ll visit spiritual places that will deepen your self reflection. If you’re seeking pure wonder, this trek is for you!
The Mt Everest Base Camp trek is a challenging trek, with a strenuous climb up to Kala Patthar. So a good level of fitness is required.
Trekking to Gorakshep (5,164m/16,942ft)
Our adventure begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu into the small mountain airport in Lukla, named after Sherpa Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary – the first men to summit Everest. We start our trek at 2,860m/9,383ft, well away from the buzz of daily life. Entering Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) National Park, you’ll feel privileged and excited to see the wild beauty within.
Vibrant Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,286ft) lives up to its name. Here you can find everything imaginable and more! Hike to one of the many vantage points of this amazing settlement and see clear views of Mount Everest for the first time! Visit singing monks in the Buddhist monastery at Tengboche. Take a spectacular photo of the Ama Dablam Stupa with its namesake in the background. Then, as we continue our ascent to Gorakshep, enjoy the beautiful scenery that just keeps getting better.
Everest Base Camp (5,364m/17,598ft) and Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,192ft)
From Gorakshep we hike to Everest Base Camp. We can’t see Mount Everest from the camp, but you’ll have a great view of the Khumbu Icefall and Glacier. Depending on the time of year, you’ll see mountaineers and Sherpas preparing to summit the highest mountain in the world!
We rise early the next morning and wrap up warm. It’s time to make our own summit – Kala Patthar at a mind blowing 5,545m/18,192ft! We push ourselves to the limit as we hike up steeply for two hours, glancing to see the dramatic dawn view and wondering what it’s like by day. We’re about to find out! Watch the sunrise with a spectacular view of Mount Everest, Lhotse (8,516m/27,940ft) – the fourth highest mountain, Nuptse (7,861m/25,791ft), and Changtse (7,543m/24,747ft), among many others. Of all the magnificent panoramic views in the Nepal Himalaya, this is the one!
We return to Kathmandu the same way, taking a flight from Lukla and experiencing the adrenaline rush as the plane takes off downhill! After your Mt Everest Base Camp trek ‘adventure of a lifetime’, you’ll be glad to have time to relax and celebrate in the capital.
Kathmandu is home to seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so you’ll want to see some! Get more ideas about what to do in this Kathmandu Travel Guide.

We had a fantastic 14-days trekking trip to Everest basecamp and Gokyo lake through Chola pass with our guide Purna from Nepalorama. Purna was very helpful, professional and also very caring and friendly. During the trip we had an issue with our stomach and Purna helped to arrange a doctor for us in Gorakshep and fixed our problem! We have a great time and the best experience in Nepal. Highly recommended to anyone interested in going to the trekking in Nepal.
Just got back from an amazing trip to Nepal with Nepalorama. Communication with Anna prior to the trip was excellent and she was super helpful with all of my questions when creating a custom Nepal itinerary. Meeting Krishna at the airport on arrival made everything so easy, and the accomodation in Thamel was clean, comfortable and in a great location. The trekking was fantastic, with our knowledgable guide Bibek, and later Buddhi, being super helpful with all of our needs. Despite some disruptions due to sickness, Krishna was always in touch with me and I felt like I was in very safe and capable hands the whole time. I also had the privilege of visiting and staying at Krishna’s home town which was an awesome way to cap off a truly memorable trip. Thanks so much team – I highly, highly recommend Nepalorama
Kim & I went to EBC with one of the greatest leaders one could have asked for Mr Bibek.
We could not have achieved getting to EBC without his ability to accomodate changes to our schedule when we got sick.
Nepalorama Trekking was able to accomodate all our needs and expectations from the onset with communication with Anna (administration) who was able to put together our itinerary through to being picked up at the airport by Bibek and on through our trek they never missed a beat.
We can highly recommend this company for their professionalism thoughtfulness and all on all nice people.
If your looking for a small group experience go with Nepalorama Trekking because if we hadn’t I am sure we would not have made it
And remember in Nepal it’s always “little bit up & little bit down”

My father and I trekked to EBC with our guide, Bibek. We have dreamed of this father daughter adventure and Nepalorama delivered beyond our expectations! We were looking for a private guide excursion that was a locally led company and discovered Nepalorama. From the start, they were highly communicative asking about our hopes and creating a custom itinerary.
As soon as we arrived in Nepal, the team was tremendously hospitable and welcoming. They also were very flexible and positive with our weather delayed flights, ensuring looking into all options.
The trek itself was a truly beautiful, challenging, and once in a lifetime experience. Bibek was the most wonderful guide we could have hoped for and always ensured we were having a joyful trek. He did a perfect job organizing our meals and accommodations, sharing stories and histories about the sights and towns, and always making sure we were safe and healthy! He has become a friend to our family and we plan to go on many more Nepalorama adventures in the future!
This was my first time trekking in Nepal as EBC is in my bucket list, I search in google about what company should I trek with? I found Nepalorama, and I like their passion of doing the business.
I start writing email to Anna, and she respond very quick especially when I have questions about the journey, that make me feel so good.
When I arrive Nepal, my guide “Bibek” is waiting for me at the airport and take the best care of me along the way. He is very friendly and manage everything very well. It’s couldn’t be better!!
From the first email to Nepalorama they exceeded our expectations – the customer service was fantastic. Anna who organised our trip could not have been more helpful – best service ever – super quick at getting back to us and had so much knowledge and first hand experience of trekking in Nepal.
Next up when we arrived we met with Krishna who was wonderful, he helped show us around Thamel and recommended great friendly places to hire the equipment we needed. During our trek, Krishna was in regular contact with our guide Bibek (more about him in a moment) to make sure everything was going okay – with Nepalorama you are really cared for on such a personal level.
Our guide Bibek was so amazing!!!! I’m sure all the guides at Nepalorama are great but you have to ask if he is available. Always smiling, making us laugh so much, so caring and always going the extra mile to ensure every day was special. We spent almost a month with Bibek and it was sad to leave when our amazing treks came to an end.
I don’t often take the time to write reviews but with Nepalorama I feel like I owe it to them – our trip could not have been better in any way.
With so many companies out there it can feel like a bit of a minefield but with Nepalorama you are in safe hands from start to finish – couldn’t speak more highly of them.
Thank you sooooo much Krishna, Anna and Bibek!!!!!
This is the second time we use Nepalorama. The service is as good as the same. Krishna, the MD, arranged everything in order and helped us solve problems during our trek in due course. Highly recommended to use the service of Nepalorama.
We hiked the EBC trail in 2017 and they organized a personal tour for my girlfriend and I in a very short 9 day timeframe. I would recommend taking 12 days!
As the trail was a challenge in this timeframe we were lucky to have the flexibility and support to take an extra acclimation day in Dingboche on the way up. As this changed the plan, our guide Ramesh was able to help us move our flight from Lukla back a day. On top of this they were able to endure a 13 hour hiking day from Gorak Shep to Namche to get us back in time!
Many thanks to Ramesh and Padum for making this journey possible, we couldn’t have done it without them!
I went to EBC with my friends with some special task!! I’ve plan to ask my girlfriend to marry me!! Everyone in this trip help me so muchhh, especially Ramesh (our guide) and Khrisna (our ground coordination at KTM).
Along the way, we had some classic trouble like many people. Some of us are sick by AMS. Our guide and porter are the truly heroes!! They all very friendly and helpfully that make you feel very safe when go trekking with this team. They take care us perfectly, such as if he know that you Look too tired, he’ll carry the stuff for you and help you as much as he can, or when you sick too. My friends needed to go down rapidly due to AMS. Our guide take care our friends so good and coordinate with his brother, who is waiting to coordinate everything on ground, call the helicopter to help my friends go to safety zone. Very thanks to them.
So, if you would like to go trekking anywhere in Nepal, I’ll recommend Nepalorama for sure. Enjoy trekking!!!
By the way, she said yes!!! ❤️
Very nice company. They take a good care to me and my friends I recommend this company for who want to trekking.
Wonderful and happy 17 days EBC (Everest base camp )trekking trip. We are come from Taiwan, and we have 6 people, I like to do trekking with my friends. We can talk each other and help each other that’s feel so good. Everyday have comfortable bed and delicious foods, the best of thing that good weather everyday. Thanks GOD!! We go to EBC first and then Gokyo lake, amazing and beautiful ice mountains. Then we take the helicopter left Gokyo lake to Kathmandu and had a city sightseeing and shopping 1.5 days. It’s very cold in April, so don’t forget warm clothes, like gloves, sacks, hats, jacket, sunglasses… And don’t forget trekking point and crampons that maybe have snow and ice in Chola pass. Thanks for the professional guide Ramesh Adhikari and porters, see you next time! My friends!
I completed Mount Everest Camp trekking in September 2017 with three other friends. It was a great and memorable trip. Krishna was the guide accompanied and guided us through the trek for 13 days. He took good care of us during the trek and made the trip a memorable one. He is very reliable guide to hire his service. Great Krishna thanks for the memorable Everest Base Camp trek. Look forward to another trek sometime in near future.
My friends and I trekked to Everest Base Camp with Nepalorama Trekking. It was one of the best experiences of my life! The flight to Lukla was like a scenic flight and you really do fly right into the mountain region. The trek was a real adventure. Scenery was amazing and it got more impressive the closer we got. My highlight was the view from Kala Patthar. You feel like you’re in another world, surrounded by huge mountains – I could have stayed there forever.
Our guide was brilliant. We chatted with him all along the way, learning about Nepal and his culture. He spoke really good English. He was always smiling, and when it got tough was great at the encouragement to keep us going. He kept us well informed so we knew what to expect each day. We didn’t need to think about anything because he organised everything and he seemed to know most people along the way. I felt really lucky to have had him as our guide. We’d definitely use this company again. I was in awe of our porters too, always there before us with our bags waiting.
If you’re thinking about trekking to EBC, definitely book it with Nepalorama Trekking! The trek and company are amazing!
