Itinerary of 12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

Short Itinerary Detailed Itinerary

Our guide will pick you up early in the morning and escort you to the airport for an early morning scenic flight to Lukla. There, we will meet up with rest of the team and begin our trek. We descend towards the Cheplung village. At Cheplung we get to see beautiful views of Mt. Khumbila. Mount Khumbila (5761m) also known as “God of Khumbu” sacred mountain which has never been climbed. Our journey then continues towards Phakding. Overnight in Phakding. Overnight at Guest House.

Today, we’ll be covering a height of over 800 meters! Also, we will be crossing many suspension bridges over the Dudhkoshi river as well. First, we cross the Dudkoshi and walk along the path west of the river. We then pass through pine forests and small villages along the way. We continue up north the Benkar valley, we cross the Dudh Koshi again and continue forwards passing through the Chumoa and Monjo villages. After verifying our passes at the Everest National Park entrance, we head towards the Hillary bridge. The Hillary bridge is the last one on today’s journey, it is also the longest and the highest. We then continue hiking up a steep path leading up to Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

This day is primarily meant for an acclimatization trek to a higher altitude and then back to Namche to sleep one more night at the current altitude. We will be hiking up to Khumjung village. It is a small but vibrant Sherpa village. There we will be visiting the Hillary School and the Khumjung Gompa that has a scalp on display, which the monastery claims that it belongs to the mythical Yeti. This is a good opportunity to learn more about the Sherpa culture, taste local cuisines, and observe the never-tiring views of the Himalayas. After our day of exploration, we make our way back to Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Firstly, we have our breakfasts. And next, we head for our hike up to Tengboche. We will pass through small villages and Buddhist stupas along the way. Lastly, we ascent a steep trail to reach Tengboche. Tengboche is famous for the Tengboche Monastery. It is the largest monastery in the region and one of the most significant ones as well. From there, you can get good views of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku. Overnight at Guest house

The first phase of today’s trek is pretty easy and beautiful with river crossings along wooden bridges, climbing up large steps through colorful gateways, and the ever-existing views of the Himalayas. We will also pass through lush forests of birch, confer and rhododendron trees. The climb to Dingboche begins once we reach the Imja Valley and the Lobuche River. Overnight at Dingboche.

Dingboche is above the tree-line, people! You know what that means, it means it’s time to acclimatize! We will do some hiking around Dinboche. We shall ascent a ridge behind the village, from where we can get views of six of the tallest mountains in the world that includes the Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. Not only those, but we also get good views of the Cholatse and Taboche peak and other snow-clad mountains rising above the Khumbu Khola Valley, particularly Lobuche West, Lobuche East, and Lhotse. The spot also offers spectacular views of the Imja Khola Valley and the attractive Dingboche village. Overnight at Dingboche.

We continue on the trail along the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier and pass by stone memorials for climbers who perished in the mountains. We ascent further as we move towards the Lobuche village which is nestled under the massive Lobuche peak. Overnight at a guesthouse.

The trail to Gorak Shep is rocky and makes it difficult to walk quickly. We move along the Khumbu glacier to reach Gorak Shep and finally EBC. The trail to EBC is also very rocky as well. But still, the views from there are incredible. After enjoying great views of the mighty Khumbu Ice fall, the upper part of the Khumbu glacier, stunning views of Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori, and many other Himalayan giants from EBC, we head back to Gorak Shep. Overnight in Gorak Shep.

Kala Patthar is a famous landmark in the region, it literally means black rock. It is only on top of Kala Patthar where we can see the best views of Mount Everest. After Kala Patthar, we head back down to Gorak Shep and from there down to Pheriche. Overnight in Pheriche.

Today, we will be twisting and turning through rhododendron, juniper, pine forests, and a wooden bridge to finally make it to Namche Bazaar. The views of Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Nuptse mountains en route are definitely the highlights. Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Today we descend to Lukla crossing several suspensions bridges and monasteries. This will be the last day in the mountains! Overnight in Lukla.

We will catch an early morning flight to Kathmandu, where we can do some last-minute souvenir shopping and some celebration! You can also check out some other places in Kathmandu, we will be assisting you with that as well.
