Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC Trek) is an epic adventure and a great opportunity for you to explore this little world of mountains. But it offers so much more than just views! You can see beautiful mountain ranges such as Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. You can also find diverse flora and fauna in the Sagarmatha National Park. And you can interact with the culture of the Sherpa people, which includes rituals and beliefs.

Moreover, a well-developed trekking trail, offering plenty of facilities for accommodation and meals, the height of Kala Patthar, and the unforgettable Sherpa hospitality make Trek To Everest Base Camp a perfect getaway and a dream vacation for most avid trekkers around the globe.

While Trekking Mount Everest itself requires immense skill and dedication, reaching the Everest Base Camp at an altitude of 17,598 feet (5,364 meters) is much more achievable for individuals from various backgrounds and fitness levels. The trek typically takes 12 days to complete, covering a distance of approximately 80 miles (130 km) round trip from the starting point at Lukla.

15 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking is a standard package that ensures the benefit of the full board (meal and accommodation) during the trek and bed and breakfast in Kathmandu at a 3-star standard hotel, English speaking guide, and a free map.

You can customize The Hike to Everest Base Camp package according to your requirements, budget, and preferred departure date (with a 100% guaranteed departure on your chosen date). You can also enjoy special group discounts by coming in a group.

The trip starts with a 30-35 minute flight to Lukla from Kathmandu or Ramechap. From Lukla, up till the base camp is on foot.

Our Attempt to Avoid Altitude Sickness

(“Climb High, Sleep Low” is the rule one needs to follow, to avoid altitude sickness. Therefore, apart from 2 days of acclimatization, at Namche and Dingboche, to aid the acclimatization process, we hike a little higher than our overnight stop and get down for overnight rest.)   

Statistics from the Sagarmatha National Park office in Manjo show that about 35,000 trekkers travel to the Everest region every year. prior to Covid


At Amigo Treks & Expedition, we take your safety seriously and strive to ensure a seamless trekking experience. While we aim to adhere to the provided itinerary, factors beyond our control, such as flight cancellations or delays, may cause alterations. Therefore, we recommend allowing for a few extra days in your schedule as a contingency plan.

To ensure your safety, our team leaders and guides are highly trained and experienced in navigating the terrain. We urge you to follow their instructions and guidance throughout the trek.

The Himalayan weather is notorious for its unpredictability, which can disrupt travel plans. In such instances, Amigo Treks & Expedition can assist in arranging helicopter services at an additional cost to ensure a smooth transition. Helicopters can operate in more challenging conditions than airplanes, making them a reliable option in the event of delays or cancellations.

Where is Everest Base Camp (EBC)?

There are actually two base camps for Everest trekking: the North Base Camp in Tibet and the South Base Camp in Nepal. The Nepalese camp in the Khumbu region is the Everest Base Camp that most people discuss and the endpoint of this legendary trek. It’s tucked away at the end of a long valley that carves through the Himalayas after splitting at the Sherpa village of Dingboche. The formidable Khumbu Icefallthe first obstacle for those attempting a summit push on Everest—begins right on the camp's doorstep.

What is the History of Everest Base Camp?

Located at an elevation of 5,364 meters (17,598 feet) in the Himalayas of Nepal, Everest Base Camp has a rich history that spans several decades. The first recorded attempt to reach Everest Base Camp was made in 1921 by a British exploration team led by Lt. Col. Charles Howard-Bury, but they were unsuccessful due to challenging weather conditions and logistical issues. In 1922, another British expedition led by George Finch and Brigadier General Charles Bruce established the first official Everest Base Camp on the northern side of Everest in Tibet (now part of China), but they also did not reach the summit due to weather and terrain challenges.

The history of Everest Base Camp took a significant turn in 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa from Nepal, successfully made the first ascent of Mount Everest via the Southeast Ridge route. They established a new route to the summit, starting from a location known as "South Col," which later became the site of the current Everest Base Camp on the Nepalese side. This historic achievement opened the door for numerous mountaineering expeditions attempting to summit the world's highest peak, and Everest Base Camp became a crucial starting point for such endeavors.

In the years that followed, Everest Base Camp saw increased development with the establishment of more permanent camps and improved facilities. Stone and metal huts were built to provide shelter, and facilities such as communication systems, medical clinics, and kitchens were set up to support the climbers and their support staff. Everest Base Camp became a bustling hub of activity during the climbing season, with climbers, sherpas, and support staff from various countries converging at the camp in pursuit of their Everest summit dreams.

The pre-monsoon (spring) and post-monsoon (autumn) seasons are ideal for planning the Everest Base Camp trek. The pre-monsoon season lasts from March to May, followed by the post-monsoon season, which lasts from late September to November.

The weather is generally stable during these seasons, and the skies are clear, providing stunning views of the Himalayan mountains. The temperatures are also mild, making trekking more comfortable.

The monsoon season, which lasts from June to August, brings heavy rain and high humidity, making trekking difficult and increasing the risk of landslides and other natural disasters. The winter season, which lasts from December to February, can be bitterly cold, with heavy snowfall in high altitude areas. Even during the best seasons, weather conditions can be unpredictable, so it's critical to check weather forecasts and be ready for any changes in conditions.

How much money should I carry along with me to the trek?

Throughout the trek, the package includes lodging, meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), and tea/coffee. The extra cash will only be used to buy water, charge your electronic devices, and buy snacks or medicines; thus, an extra $200 should be enough. We recommend carrying cash rather than an ATM card.

Can a beginner climb Everest Base Camp?

With the right training and preparation, even a novice can successfully complete the Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek. This entails being physically fit, adjusting to high altitudes, learning about the challenges, and possibly hiring a guide or porter. Due to the physical demands of the trek and the need to hike at a high altitude, caution and appreciation for the difficulties are required.

Is it hard to breathe at Everest Base Camp?

Because of the high altitude and thin air, it can be difficult to breathe at Everest Base Camp (EBC). The elevation at EBC is approximately 5,364 meters (17,598 feet) above sea level, implying that air pressure and oxygen levels are lower than at lower elevations. This can make breathing difficult, especially for those who haven't been acclimatized to the altitude.

Altitude sickness symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and shortness of breath can occur at high altitudes and affect even the fittest people. Allow for proper acclimatization, stay hydrated, be aware of altitude sickness symptoms, and descend if necessary. It is also advised to consult a doctor before embarking on the journey, especially if you have a history of heart or lung problems.

Which is harder Kilimanjaro or Everest Base Camp?

The treks to Kilimanjaro and Everest (EBC) are difficult, and the level of difficulty is determined by factors such as fitness, altitude acclimatization, and tolerance to high-altitude conditions. Because of its higher elevation, difficult terrain, extreme weather, and longer acclimatization period, EBC is generally regarded as more difficult.

Which is better Annapurna or Everest Base Camp?

Annapurna offers a variety of landscapes, cultural experiences, and trekking options. Everest provides the opportunity to trek to the base of the world's highest mountain, as well as panoramic views of tall peaks and a physically demanding trek. The choice depends on personal preferences and the type of trekking experience desired.

Do I need travel insurance? What should the policy's coverage include?

Yes, travel insurance is a must, if you are planning the Everest Base Camp Trek. Your travel insurance should cover:
