    Overview

    Everest Base Camp Trek by road? Yes! It is absolutely possible without a doubt, and can make it in the same number of days as the 14-15 day traditional Everest Base Camp trek

    Embark on this fascinating journey that permits you to explore the majestic mountains, walking through some of the world's most spectacular villages.

    Everest Base Camp trek by road is an iconic trip that has been designed by Alpine Ramble Treks for trekkers to enjoy the beauty of diverse cultures and nature, not missing anything. However, this itinerary does not include any flight to and from Lukla to be part of the experience of everything. You will miss nothing doing this trek by road, and it is also a bit cheaper than the flight journey. 

    The trek itself is amazing, enjoying the glorious valley of the lower region of the Himalayas, where you have plenty of time to engage with the local people to learn about their foods, traditions, and lifestyle. 

    Taking a jeep is yet another highlighted part of the journey as it takes us to the most beautiful land on the planet. Enjoy the scenery with the fabulous extended music and laugh together; that's the journey probably everyone likes to take at least once in a lifetime. 

    Taking a flight to Lukla is also not a disadvantage but you will miss some of the beautiful scenery and authentic local villages along with the majestic local culture and lifestyle. Also, it is so scary to fly out to Lukla by a tiny airline and land on one of the world's most dangerous airports with a very short runway. Thank god that nothing bad had happened yet. 

    Our Trek to Everest base camp y by road without flying to Lukla commences in Kathmandu with 6-7 hours of ride by local jeep to Phaplu, a small town with a beautiful atmosphere and friendly people. We start a short drive to Tham Dada and start our trek from here onwards. It is all on foot now. 

    An official trekking day starts from Tham Dada, which is a magical place to kick up our trek toward the Everest base camp. The valley is so deep, with a peaceful environment.

    Trekking continuously moves further down the valley, following the small local villages of Nunthalas and several others to get our camp to Paiya, a small Rai and Sherpa-original people. The next day, we had another exciting hike up to Phakding by passing several local villages and catching up with a stunning mountain and breathtaking valley to reach our goal of reaching Everest. From Phakding, we follow the normal EBC route, meeting more adventure fellows and enjoying the sound of thundering Waterfalls, cascading monasteries, and dazzling views of the Himalayas with a different atmosphere. 

    As we gain the elevation, there are better views of the Himalayas. However, the trail is crowded to follow up the rest of our hike toward Base camp from Phakding. This is the point where we meet the other hikers who take the flight options for their trip to Everest treks. 

    If you are a beginner voyage but intend to experience the Everest base trek and are quite scared of getting possibility high altitude sickness, then this itinerary taking by a road option is fairly helpful to you as it starts the trek from the low subtropical to the high elevation of the area. This itinerary allows you to have a good time acclimatizing to the thin air before approaching such a high altitude. You will get familiar with the mountain air, adopting and approaching the gradual hiking to proceed with the lower elevation. Your buddy gets paid attention to gaining elevation. 

    Our multiple-day trek takes us to the Everest base camp, which stands at an altitude of 5364 meters, and ultimately to Kalapathar, located at the elevation of 5555 m above sea level. This is also ultimately the highest point to reach by foot on this trip.

    Immersing in the view of 360-degree panoramic Himalayas, eyes-catching glaciers, breathtaking sunrise over the untouchable mountains, testing delicious mountain foods, encountering local people, and waving to your new hiking fellows are some of the most beautiful highlights of this journey.

    If you are thinking of doing this trek in Nepal, then March-May and December are considered the best times of the year without a doubt. The weather is stable, the temperatures are moderate, the views are clear, and there is no risk in terms of landslides, rain, and even cloudy factors. 

    This trek with the road is doable for all of us who are physically fit and determined to do 5-6 hours of walking each day with a small daypack. This is a fully guided trek, you will be accompanied by one of the highly experienced local guides who are familiar with this region and know everything in dept.
