Comprehensive 20-Day Everest Base Camp Trek for Seniors Overview

The Everest Base Camp Trek For Seniors Citizens is a perfect itinerary that gains an elevation of 300 to 400 meters a day and a maximum of 3-4 hours of walking for each day at your own pace.

Are you ready to celebrate the breathtaking scenery and undiminished natural splendor of the unspoiled Himalayas? Would you like to immerse yourself in the colorful, world-famous culture of the Sherpa people? Then pack your bags, strap on your boots, and prepare for the trekking experience of a lifetime.

The Everest Base Camp Trekking for old people or senior citizens is one of Nepal's most stunning hiking adventures. This exciting trail passes through multiple climate zones, crosses picturesque suspension bridges, and brings you into remote mountainside villages full of friendly locals.

At Alpine Ramble Treks, we’ve carefully designed our 20-day EBC tour itinerary to get you from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu to the lonely grandeur of the mighty Mount Everest—and back again.

This Everest Base Camp Trek For Seniors Citizen group allows you to explore the dramatic landscapes of the Khumbu region, including the jaw-dropping Sagarmatha National Park.

You’ll pass through valleys of fir and deodar, follow the paths of glistening glaciers and ancient moraines, and encounter striking Buddhist monasteries and stupas.

You can also expect to come face-to-face with many of the greatest giants of the Himalayas: Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, and Ama Dablam, just a few of the snowcapped summits that tower over the hills of the Khumbu. Of course, your ultimate reward is the sight of Everest itself. Known variously as Sagarmatha and Chomolungma, this mountain doesn’t disappoint!

This trek also offers the rare opportunity to glimpse the timeless lifestyle, culture, and traditions of the villagers who call the Khumbu home. The region is populated by people of Sherpa, Tamang, and Rai ethnicities, and they’ll welcome you with open arms to learn more about their daily routines and deeply held religious convictions.

In fact, you’ll even have the chance to visit the region's oldest and largest Buddhist gompa: the Tengboche Monastery. Our 14-day Everest Base Camp offers a fascinating blend of adventure, scenery, and culture.

This itinerary is perfect for travelers with a little more time to spare on the trail; visitors on a tighter schedule might also consider our twelve-day EBC Hike or 8-day itineraries. If you have any questions about which option is best for you or if you’d like to customize any of our itineraries, you can always contact us

 

20-Day Everest Base Camp Trekking Difficulty & Comfort

While prior trekking experience is not a prerequisite for our trekking to Everest Base Camp package, this is a moderately complex 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 healthy and physically fit before embarking on 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 from Luka to Everest Base Camp—and back again.

If the 20-day trip to EBC isn’t what you’re looking for, Alpine Ramble Treks has plenty of alternatives here in Khumbu. If you are game to challenge longer hikes, consider our Everest Three pass trek or our 12-Day EBC trek Itinerary.

And if you’re here on a brief visit, you can still enjoy the splendor of the world’s tallest mountain by booking our Everest Base camp trekking with a helicopter tour or Scenic Everest Flight. With convenient departures from Kathmandu, these day trips are a fantastic way to get up close and personal with Mt. Everest when you’re short on time.

Update regarding the Lukla Flight for Everest treks scheduled for 2024 and 2025.

During the peak trek seasons (March to May and October to November), the flight between Kathmandu and Lukla will be slightly amended. Instead of operating from Kathmandu, the flight will now take place from Ramechhap/Manthali airport to Lukla due to traffic congestion. However, for the remaining months, the flight will continue to operate directly from Kathmandu. In case we need to catch a flight from Manthali, we will start early in the morning on the first day of the program. This means we must leave the hotel in Kathmandu at around 1 or 2 am and drive for approximately 3-4 hours to reach Ramechhap/Manthali.

 

Please note: The trekking times indicated Below are approximate and are best used as general guidelines. During the Everest Base Camp Trek, you can travel freely at your own pace. We also recommend arriving in Kathmandu at least one day before your scheduled itinerary begins; this will allow you to meet with our trekking team in advance to learn more about your planned activities. Staying in Kathmandu for an extra day or two at the end of the itinerary will also provide you with a more flexible schedule if mountain flights between Kathmandu and Lukla are delayed due to weather.
