Overview

Venture into the frozen heart of the Himalayas to discover the alpine region known as the Khumbu. Here we’ll savor a heady mix of vibrant culture and spectacular scenery, where hardy mountaineers and gregarious locals move freely amongst the highest mountains on the planet. Join Alpine Ramble Treks on an unforgettable adventure to Everest Base Camp.”

Nepal’s Everest Base Camp Trek is widely recognized as something of a holy grail for any serious hiker, and for good reason. Nowhere else on the planet can you walk amongst bustling Buddhist monasteries and charming mountainside villages, traversing narrow yak paths and untamed trails to ultimately reach the world’s tallest mountain. It’s possible to spend longer than two full weeks exploring the length and breadth of the Khumbu on foot, and each moment spent in the rarefied air of the Himalayas is its own reward. But it’s also possible to reach Everest Base Camp in just a few days—and you don’t need to be a world-class athlete, either. At Alpine Ramble Treks, we’ve developed our five-day itinerary to represent an accessible version of this famous hike that’s appropriate for trekkers of all ages. As with each of our travel packages, we’ve striven to offer the perfect combination of value, luxury, and compelling adventure.

Our five-day Everest Base Camp Trek has also been called the Everest Luxury Trek, and it’s easy to see why. One of the best highlights of hiking in the Khumbu can be glimpsed in the form of your nightly accommodations. You’ll be booked into cozy teahouses and well-appointed lodges where you can enjoy a home-cooked meal and a warm bed after each strenuous day on the trail. These are simple, lovely accommodations, and Alpine Ramble Treks has carefully chosen each teahouse along your route to ensure you receive only the best in cleanliness and comfort. This authentic Nepali hospitality can be seen in each village along the path to Everest Base Camp. You’ll get a firsthand look at rural life in the Himalayas, and the friendly mountain villagers you meet will be eager to share their experiences and culture with you. Every visitor to the Khumbu walks away with a fuller understanding of Sherpa culture and the rich religious heritage which informs its traditions.

Of course, what would the Everest Base Camp Trek be without mountains? You’ll see them here in spades, from the iconic two peaks of Ama Dablam to the rapturously beautiful monoliths of Lhotse and Nuptse. Many hikers happily concede that these mountains are even more impressive than Everest itself—but you’ll have to decide that for yourself. And as you approach the world’s tallest mountain, you’ll also get to feast your eyes on a staggering variety of additional scenery: steeply terraced fields, verdant forests hanging with moss and rhododendron flowers, and rocky paths decorated only by strings of prayer flags whipping in the wind. The Everest Base Camp Trek is an adventurer’s dream come true. It brings people from every walk of life to the tiny airport at Lukla and leads them to the foot of Everest itself—and back again. We’d love for you to join us on the finest hike in all of Nepal. If you’re ready to get started, contact us today by email or WhatsApp at +977 9851175531.

Best Time of Year for the Everest Base Camp Trek 

Weather in the Himalayas is variable, and the best trekking seasons are usually determined by the arrival of the summer monsoon. In order to avoid the wettest conditions, many hikers travel during the spring, which occurs from February to March. This is the time of year when wildflowers are in bloom and temperatures are at their most comfortable. Other trekkers might prefer to undertake the Everest Base Camp Trek during the autumn season, between September and November. This is perhaps the best time of year for crisp days and clear mountain views. Of course, winter treks are also possible; while temperatures can be cold and trails can be packed with snow, there is an undeniable appeal to enjoying the Everest Base Camp Trek without a crowd. We typically recommend against hiking the Everest Base Camp Trek during summer. If your schedule only allows you to visit Nepal during the summer, Alpine Ramble Treks will be happy to arrange a proper Himalayan adventure on one of our many alternate routes.

Please note: On rare occasions, domestic flights between Kathmandu and Lukla may be delayed or canceled due to weather conditions. Your helicopter flights between Syangboche, Everest Base Camp, and Lukla are also dependent upon weather conditions. Changes can arise during any time of the year, and you can rest assured that Alpine Ramble Treks will work with you to make any possible alternative arrangements to minimize the interruption to your holiday.

Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty 

While prior trekking experience is not a prerequisite for our Everest Base Camp Trek package, this is a moderately difficult hiking trail with a maximum elevation of more than 5,500 meters. You’ll be walking for six or seven hours each day, and the trail ascends and descends as it winds through countless side valleys and high-altitude mountain passes. For these reasons, you should be in good health and physical fitness before embarking upon this trek. Walking, running, and other forms of cardiovascular exercise are great ways to prepare for the opportunity to cross Mt. Everest from your bucket list. An expert guide from Alpine Ramble Treks will also be assigned to watch over you, monitor your progress and condition, and shepherd you safely all the way from Luka to Everest Base Camp—and back again.

If you want to spend more time in the jaw-dropping mountains of the Khumbu, Alpine Ramble Treks offers a whole host of alternative itineraries you may want to consider. Our 14-day Everest Base Camp Trek is perhaps the best way to experience this hike to its fullest, but our eight-day itinerary is also an excellent compromise. No matter which package you choose, rest assured that Alpine Ramble Treks will go above and beyond to deliver impeccable service at a fair rate.

Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu is a veritable whirlwind for the senses, from its bustling traffic and crowded marketplaces to its ancient monasteries and temples fragrant with incense. This morning, we’ll leave it all behind and strike out into the wilderness. Our adventure on the Everest Base Camp Trek begins with a scenic mountain flight, departing from Tribhuvan International Airport to arrive in Lukla just 30 minutes later. You’ll be glued to your window as a field of Himalayan peaks passes beneath the wings of your jet. When the plane touches down on the short runway at Lukla, we’ll meet up with the rest of our hiking team and get ready to hit the trail.

Today’s hike serves as a gentle introduction to the steeper trails that we’ll encounter during the rest of the Everest Base Camp Trek. We’ll only be hiking for about three or four hours, depending on our pace and our acclimatization to the thin mountain air. We’ll cross picturesque suspension bridges over the Dudh Koshi river and hike past a number of beautiful Buddhist chortens and mani walls before reaching the village of Phakding. In keeping with our trek’s luxurious standards, we’ll check into one of the more upscale lodges here in Phakding for the evening. Daily lunch and dinner are included with your itinerary, but you may find plenty of tasty snacks for sale in this lively town.

After an energizing breakfast in Phakding, we’ll begin hiking through small Sherpa villages as we trace the left bank of the Dudh Koshi to enter Sagarmatha National Park. This sprawling wilderness takes its name from Mount Everest, which is called Sagarmatha in Nepali. The park is home to plenty of wildlife, including the musk deer and Himalayan tahr, but several mountain communities are also contained within its borders. We’ll pass through a number of these settlements as we traverse the park, crossing a spectacular suspension bridge named after Edmund Hillary and stopping for scenic photo opportunities at a series of waterfalls cascading down the steep faces of rocky cliffs.

Our second day of hiking on the Everest Base Camp Trek gradually increases in grade and difficulty, and our pace is likely to slow as we stop to observe the distant peaks of Everest and Lhotse. We’ll stop for lunch and enjoy the view before making the final push to Namche Bazaar by climbing a stone staircase for approximately two hours, ascending through pine and oak forests to arrive at the most famous town in the Khumbu. The high-altitude community of Namche Bazaar sits at approximately 3,500 meters above sea level and has long served as an important center of the Himalayan trade. This is a great place to shop for unique souvenirs, including Tibetan curios. We can also enjoy an unusually high standard of food and accommodation here, and we’ll make the most of it by settling in at a well-appointed guesthouse for tonight’s lodgings.

Are you ready for the undisputed highlight of the Everest Base Camp Trek? Today is where our five-day package really offers something different from the usual itinerary. After a light breakfast, we’ll depart from the airstrip at Namche to enjoy what must be the most thrilling helicopter ride on the planet. We’ll cruise amongst the true giants of the Himalayas, fully surrounded by towering monuments of rock and ice. This is a wholly unique way to experience the mountains, and you’ll get an unrivaled look at peaks like Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Nuptse, and Lhotse on the way during this over-flight to and from EBC by helicopter. 

Your reward will be an even more up-close-and-personal audience with the tallest mountains of the Khumbu. Watching the miles roll out beneath our aircraft is a surreal experience; the path that took us days to traverse on foot will take just a few minutes by helicopter. When we’ve arrived back in Lukla, we’ll book ourselves into a first-rate lodge to enjoy the luxury of a hot shower and all the food we can eat. While it is possible to return to Kathmandu today, this option comes at an additional cost—and most hikers prefer the chance to celebrate their achievements on the Everest Base Camp Trek here in Lukla.

If you’re staying in Nepal, Alpine Ramble Treks would be happy to arrange sightseeing tours of the city, adventure activities, or even another trek.
