Overview

There is one place in the Himalayas where trekkers, mountaineers, photographers, and travelers are drawn over and over again. Join Alpine Ramble Treks on an extraordinary adventure to the base of the world’s highest peak: the unforgettable Mount Everest.”

 

The Ultimate Everest Base Camp Hike -14 Days Overview 

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 get ready for the trekking experience of a lifetime.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most stunning hiking adventures in all of Nepal. 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 14-day EBC trek itinerary to bring you all the way from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu to the lonely grandeur of the mighty Mount Everest—and back again.

 

The traditional EBC trek 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 which 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 is one mountain that doesn’t disappoint!

 

This trek also offers the rare opportunity to gain a glimpse into 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 ethnicity, 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 oldest and largest Buddhist gompa in the region: the Tengboche Monastery. All told, our 14-day Everest Base Camp offers a bewitching 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 

 

Best Time for trekking to EBC -14 days

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 Hike 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 hike without a crowd.

We typically recommend against hiking the Everest Base Camp 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. This can happen 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.

Mount Everest Base Camp Trip Difficulty & Comfort

While prior trekking experience is not a prerequisite for our trekking to Everest Base Camp 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 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 all the way from Luka to Everest Base Camp—and back again.

 

If the 14-day trip to EBC isn’t quite what you’re looking for, Alpine Ramble Treks has plenty of alternatives here in Khumbu. If you are game to challenge more longer hike would do to 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.

You’ll visit the enormous Buddhist stupas of Swayambhunath and Boudhanath, where Buddhists and Hindus alike come to show their devotion. You’ll also visit the splendid temple of Pashupatinath on the banks of the Bagmati River, which is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. And you won’t want to miss the many pagoda-style temples which comprise the world-famous Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Get ready for the most memorable flight you’ve ever taken! The short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla offers panoramic views of mountain landscapes that are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Soon you’ll touch down in Lukla, best known as the start of the Everest Base Camp Trek. We’ll stop here for a couple of hours to enjoy some hot tea and a bite to eat while we adjust to the higher elevation. Then we’ll set out for adventure, following the bubbling Dudh Koshi river downhill as it passes mani walls strewn with prayer flags. These walls are made from many small rocks carved with Buddhist mantras, and they’re a frequent site along today’s trail. You can also expect to see alluring views of forested ridges draped in mist, with mountains rising above the cloud. We’ll even cross a suspension bridge to reach the charming Sherpa village of Ghat before arriving at Phakding, where we’ll spend our first night on the trail in a local teahouse or trekking lodge.

Greet the dawn with a hearty breakfast and a mug of steaming tea as we watch the sunrise over the lush pine forest along the banks of the Dudh Koshi. As we trek beneath the shade of the forest canopy, keep your eyes peeled for hidden waterfalls sparkling in the morning light. And as the forest starts to thin out, we’ll catch our first glimpse of Mount Everest—along with the neighboring ice-laden summits of Thamserku and Kangtega. After lunch, we’ll head into the scenic forests of Sagarmatha National Park. Lucky trekkers will spot musk deer and Himalayan tahr roaming between stands of pine and juniper—not to mention more than 200 different species of bird. But soon mountains will fill your vision as we begin a gradual ascent to Namche Bazaar itself. This thriving trading hub is known as the capital of the Khumbu, and its iconic semicircular sprawl has graced many a traveler’s postcard. We’ll spend the next two nights here in the best available trekking lodge.

Visit the Sherpa Culture Museum to learn more about the history and traditions of these fascinating people, or simply browse the many stalls and shops peppered throughout town. Namche Bazaar is also famous for its bakeries, and you won’t want to miss the chance to dig into some fresh pastries while taking in the mountain views. If you’re feeling restless, you can also enjoy a short acclimatization excursion to Syangboche Airport. This is one of the highest airports in the world, and it isn’t used by any commercial airlines. You can also hike to the world-renowned Hotel Everest View, which boasts the best panoramic view in all of Namche Bazaar. After spending the day resting and exploring, you’ll return to your hotel for a second night.

Our journey along the Everest Base Camp Trek continues today as we depart Namche Bazaar first thing in the morning. As we set out, don’t miss the memorial stupa dedicated to Tenzing Norgay, who along with Edmund Hillary made the first known ascent of Everest. The trail then brings us down to the rushing waters of the Dudh Koshi before rising again through verdant rhododendron forest on the way to Tengboche. The town’s biggest claim to fame is undoubtedly the Tengboche Monastery. Framed against the stark summits of Ama Dablam, this alluring gompa is an important pilgrimage site for Buddhist Sherpas—particularly during the seasonal Mani Rimdu festival. We’ll overnight in one of Tengboche’s many fine teahouses, where you can look forward to a hot meal and a restful night’s sleep.

Our journey on the Everest Base Camp Trek continues after breakfast this morning, as we venture ever deeper into the heart of the Khumbu. Today we’ll traverse a series of suspension bridges spanning the Imja Khola and Khumbu Khola rivers. While many trekkers will make for the village of Pheriche, we prefer the gentler route and better views to enjoy at Dingboche. From Dingboche, you’ll be rewarded with a tantalizing view of Everest, Lhotse, and Imja Tse, popularly known as Island Peak. We’ll spend the next two nights in the best available teahouse or lodge; tomorrow, you can look forward to relaxing and exploring the sights of this scenic mountain hamlet.

Dingboche sits at an altitude of 4,360 meters above sea level, and we’ll use today as another acclimatization opportunity. But that doesn’t mean you have to rest on your laurels—after savoring the resplendent sunrise over the mountains, we can enjoy a challenging day hike to Nagarjun Hill. Don’t let its name fool you—even the hills look like mountains in the Khumbu, and you’ll feel like you’re standing on top of the world when you feast your eyes upon gobsmacking views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and Thamserku. If you’d prefer a shorter hike, there’s also an excellent viewpoint on the ridgeline above Dingboche that rises to just over 5,000 meters and should take about two hours to reach. However you decide to spend the day, you can count on a mouthwatering supper and a comfortable evening spent chatting with both locals and your fellow trekkers.

  • Hiking time: 2 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)

With Dingboche at our backs and the trail to Everest Base Camp beckoning us ever forward, we’ll begin today’s hike by ascending gradually through a series of small mountainside villages. Look out for the charming stone-built settlements used seasonally by herders before we reach the more substantial town of Tukla, or Dughla. After passing through this village, we’ll climb a ridge to reach a small group of memorials dedicated to deceased climbers. Take in the incredible view of the Himalayan giants known as Pumori and Khumbutse before continuing on to Lobuche. There are plenty of lodges catering to trekkers here, and we’ll select one of the most comfortable to enjoy a warm night’s sleep as the cold night air settles over the mountains.

This is the day you’ve been waiting for! All of your steps have led you here, and we’ll get an early start on the final push to Everest Base Camp. Make sure to take your time and drink plenty of fluids to avoid symptoms of altitude sickness as we approach the first landmark on today’s hike: the community of Gorak Shep. This is the last permanent settlement on the Everest Base Camp Trek, and we’ll return here later in the day. For now, we’ll continue on to base camp itself by following the path along a glacial moraine. When we reach base camp at least, you’ll be surrounded by colorful prayer flags, celebrating hikers, and—most importantly—a 360-degree view of the biggest mountains in the entire Himalaya. After enjoying the experience to your heart’s content, we’ll shoulder our bags and descend back to Gorak Shep to spend the night in one of that town’s best teahouses.

You may have already been to Everest Base Camp and back, but that doesn’t mean that your adventures are over. No trip to the Khumbu would be complete without hiking to the spectacular viewpoint of Kala Patthar. From here, you’ll gain an even better view of the world’s tallest mountain than you can see from the base camp. We’ll head out from Gorak Shep in the very early dawn in order to arrive at Kala Patthar in the full glory of the morning sun. This is without a doubt the very best 360-degree view in the entire Himalayas, where the mountains Pumori and Lhotse seem almost close enough to touch. When you’ve finally had your fill of this astonishing scene, we’ll turn our footsteps back down the ridgeline, leaving Gorak Shep behind us on the way to Pheriche. We’ll stop here for the night, enjoying a hot meal and a warm bed at the best available trekking lodge.

After breakfast this morning, we’ll trek back down to the Imja Khola river and follow it through the verdant greenery of the forest. Passing several small villages along the way, we’ll eventually reach Tengboche after about two or three hours on the trail. Take one last look at the town’s unforgettable monastery while we break for lunch. After sating our appetites, we’ll pick up the trail back to Namche Bazaar. We should arrive in Khumbu’s most vibrant trading town after approximately four or five more hours of hiking along ridgelines scattered with low-lying shrubs. We’ll stop here in Namche for the night, so don’t miss this chance to return to your favorite bakery and watch the sunset over the mountains.

Lace-up your hiking boots one last time—today is our final full day on the Everest Base Camp Trek. We’ve got about six hours on the trail to tackle today, and our path down to the Dudh Koshi river follows a markedly steep grade. After crossing a suspension bridge and passing the villages of Phakding and Monjo, we’ll return like heroes to Lukla, where our adventure began. We’ll spend the night here; make sure to sample the cafes and restaurants of this offbeat travelers’ town. Congratulations on completing the Everest Base Camp Trek!

Take one last look at the mountains spreading out beneath the wings of your plane; before you know it, we’ll be touching down in Kathmandu. When our flight is over, you’ll be transferred to your hotel in the city.

    Firstly, I would like to say thanks to Alpine Ramble Treks for organizing an amazing trek for me and my husband. From the very first moment of our arrival, we're well taken by Mr. Dil and our Guide Laxman. They are absolutely the best. We choose the Alpine Ramble based on their rating from their previous clients, almost everyone shared the best experiences joining this company. And exactly, we found the same as well, they are very accommodated, and flexible, we trusted them since we met at the airport. We did An Everest base camp trek for 14-days, and this was a life-changing experience.  We could not ask better than this. Our guide LAXMAN is always there to help us, he is very informative and experienced with a kind heart. He knows everyone in the mountains. we felt so blessed to have Laxman as our guide who made our trip so easy and comfortable. We did not worry about anything being in the mountains, everything was taken care of by them including our food, accommodations, transport, and everything. The food we ate in the mountain was so delicious, our guide always gave us the ideas about what to eat and not to eat which is very important, if you were not known then you might be sick in the mountain, not every meal are safe and fresh to eat in the mountains. We felt so safe and had truly an amazing trip with them, after the trek, Dil came to greet us and gave us a farewell dinner. He is so friendly and very connective, he made sure we both were having a nice trip. We are so connected with this company and guides now. We are already thinking of coming back to this incredible country and doing another trek with them (a 12-day Annapurna circuit trek) in 2023 spring. 

    If you intend to visit Nepal, connect with this company and ask the Laxman as your guide, you will not disappoint. Highly recommended ART to anyone of you.

    I just completed a 14-day Everest Base Camp trek with Hari as my guide. This has to be one of the most amazing journeys I've ever been on. Dil ensured that the trip was well planned and Hari was an incredible guide. Always attentive and supportive, Hari ensured I reached base camp successfully. Alpine Ramble is an exceptionally run organization. I would recommend this company and its tours to anyone wishing to experience Nepal.

    I highly enjoyed the trek and guides Dika & Krissna for helping me get to the Everest base camp. They made my experience enjoyable and fun and I will absolutely sign up for the trek again and hope to have them as my guides once more.

    Just finished up my tour of Nepal on the EBC trek with Alpine Ramble, and I am so glad I chose this company.

    From the beginning, the owner Dil and his team were extremely responsive to all the questions I had about the trip. And when I arrived in Kathmandu, my guide was there waiting for me with a taxi ready to transport me back to my hotel.

    From then, it got even better with the service and support I received from my guide Samir, and porter Karma. They kept me safe at all times during the harsh Winter season. And apart from keeping me safe, no one mentioned that I would also have two expert photographers travelling with me. (Pictures below)

    Travelling solo meant that I was so happy to have my brothers Samir and Karma with me, teaching me about the beautiful country of Nepal. Both Samir and Karma would always go the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed, whenever I needed something. Samir was also very entertaining with his singing and dancing along the way too!

    The food on the trek was amazing! Hopefully when I arrive home I can find some Dhal Bhat, with more rice for the same price! Accomodation on the trek was also excellent, as my room had the best views and attached en-suite wherever possible!

    I would recommend Alpine Ramble to anyone for their trekking and adventure needs!

    Until next time Alpine Ramble!
    Looking forward to our next adventure already!

    Amazing company!
    Dil was incredibly helpful with organising our trek to Everest Base Camp and made sure everything was well taken care of, we couldn’t have wished for a more thoughtful individual to look after us while we stayed in Nepal, he went above and beyond to make us comfortable.
    Our guide Laxman was awesome, he was very knowledgable with 18 years experience and had a relaxed and patient attitude which was perfect for our group. Top guy!
    Also our porters who completed our team were a very friendly bunch who took very good care of all our belongings when hauling them up the mountain.
    Fantastic company who I would always work with again in future.
    Thank you Dil and co for an epic trip!
    Namaste.
