Trip Itinerary:

  • Day 01:Welcome to Nepal, Kathmandu. Altitude: (1,350m) 4,428ft The capital of Nepal is Kathmandu, which is also a city with a World Heritage Site. At the airport, a member of our staff will be ready to take you to your hotel. At the hotel, a Day Tours Nepal tour representative will welcome you and discuss future preparations and trip preparation with you. Your tour itinerary includes airport pickup. At the airport in Kathmandu, visitors may purchase a visa for USD 30 for 15 days and USD 50 for 30 days.
  • Day 02:Kathmandu Heritage Sightseeing. Altitude: (1,350m) 4,428ft Day Tours Nepal's cultural tour guide will greet you at your hotel at 9:00 am so you may experience Kathmandu's historical kingdoms. The 5-hour sightseeing tour will end with a trip back to the hotel.
    Your trek guide will give you a briefing on the itinerary and an overview of the locations you'll be seeing. Today will also be used to prepare for the walk, so our guide will examine your equipment. If something is missing, he or she will help you purchase it. welcoming supper in the evening with the Day Tours Nepal team.
  • Day 03:Kathmandu - Manthali and fly to Lukla (2,800m) 9184ft and Trek to Phakding Altitude: (2,652m) 8,698ft Distance: 8 km (3-4 hours) The flight to Lukla departs from Manthali Airport during the busiest season, although many agencies haven't updated their information. Off-season flights are available directly from Kathmandu; the airport may vary according on your vacation plans, as we have indicated.
    At the hotel, we will give a packed breakfast before driving to Manthali Airport. an almost 3- to 4-hour journey from Kathmandu Manthali Airport flight times are around 20 minutes.
    As soon as we arrive in Lukla, we will meet the second member of our crew who will assist you with carrying your luggage during the entire journey to Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla. We don't need to rush or exert a lot of effort today because it's only our first day of hiking to Phakding.
    The route will include a mixture of rocky areas, dirt, and stone walkways. Technically speaking, though, it is a rather simple section of track to navigate, and you should have no issue moving ahead.
    Since Lukla to Phakding is located on the lower section of the path, there is a lot more vegetation there. There will be a lot of vegetation, including trees, and some mountains will be seen.
  • Day 04:Phakding Trek to Namche Bazaar Altitude: (3,440m) 11,283ft Walking Distance: 10-12 km (6 hours). Pack your belongings before breakfast to make it simpler for our Sherpas to carry your luggage. Breakfast will be served, and our guide will give a quick overview of the day. Before you go to sleep, we'll order breakfast so we can eat it early and go on to our next stop.
    After leaving Phakding, there are a few kilometres worth of ups and downs as you gradually start to gain height. However, the final 25% of the path is when you'll truly be climbing and gaining the most of the day's height.
    Before making the last push to Namche, you will spend a significant portion of the day traveling along and over the river. There will be many steps, river and valley vistas, and stunning snow-capped peaks in the distance along the walk. Expect a lot of animals on the route as you pass by numerous little communities, similar to the previous day.
    There will be several suspension bridges throughout the trip, some little and some fairly lengthy. The renowned double suspension bridge, which lies just before the last section of the route leading to Namche, is one of them.
    A few distance after the bridge, you will come upon a resting platform where residents are selling food and beverages. Additionally, this is your first chance to see Mount Everest!
    On a clear day, if you face the trees and stand at the appropriate angle, you can see Mount Everest's summit far out in the distance.
    We will stay in Namche for two nights because day three is an acclimatization day. This offers you the opportunity to explore the region more thoroughly.
    On the slope, Namche is essentially constructed in the shape of a semicircle. There is a 60 meter/200 foot gap between Namche's bottom and peak. You may anticipate climbing and descending a lot of steps during your stay here due to the village's layout.
  • Day 05:Namche Bazaar Acclimatization Day Altitude: (3,440m) 11,283ft (4 hours) There are many things to do in and around Namche Bazaar. Each morning, we awaken to a stunning sunrise over the majestic mountains as we watch from our room. Let me clarify a major misconception you may have concerning the acclimatization day. Don't assume that after the arduous climb to arrive to Namche Bazaar you'll spend today lounging around the lodges or doing some local shopping since acclimatization day is nothing like a rest day; it's something quite different. We'll take you to experience Namche Bazaar's true charm. So, following breakfast, we'll begin the leisurely ascent to the Everest View Hotel (3780M), which is 12,401.57 feet above sea level, from where we can witness views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku.
    On the way back to the hotel, we'll stop at the Sagarmatha National Park Museum as well. From there, you can see Lhotse, Nupste, and of course Everest itself, as well as the entire Everest mountain range.
  • Day 06:Namche Bazaar Trek to Tengboche Monastery. Altitude: (3,870m) /12,684ft Distance: 10km (6 hours) After breakfast in Namche Lodges, we set off for our next destination Tengboche. Although Tengboche is just 420 meters (1,378 feet) higher in height than Namche Bazaar, you will gain more than double that amount throughout the day.
    We will enjoy the beautiful views of Mount Everest, Mount Nuptse, Mount Lhotse, Mount Ama Dablam, and Thamserku peak as we ascend gently to the Namche summit. Up till Kyangjuma, the path is level with minimal ascents and descents. The breathtaking vistas of the Himalayas make our journey exciting, so we don't worry too much about the path. Following Kyangjuma, the route descends a little before we bridge the Dudh Kosi River and begin a gradual ascent to Tengboche. Tengboche is a great location to enjoy breathtaking views of Mount Everest, Mount Nuptse, and Mount Ama Dablam. It has the biggest Buddhist monastery called Tengboche Monastery.
    Several teahouses and other buildings may be found all around the area where Tengboche is situated. The Tengboche Monastery (Dawa Choling Gompa), which views out over the town and the surrounding mountain range, is one of the town's primary attractions.
    One of the most significant cultural components of the Everest Base Camp climb is the monastery, which you should visit as soon as you get there.
    If you want to participate in a meaningful cultural experience, there are two daily prayers that take place at the monastery, one in the morning around 7:00AM and once in the afternoon around 3:00PM.
  • Day 07:Tengboche Trek to Dingboche Altitude: (4,400m) 14,435ft Distance: 11km (6 hours) After breakfast, we will go from the town of Tengboche to the village of Dingboche. It will be a stunning day as you go down the valley, past the glacier river below, and toward the far peaks covered in snow. The settlement of Pangboche and the renowned mountain Ama Dablam are both visible from the trail, making this a very memorable day of your trekking trip in Nepal. You may enjoy a wonderful and tranquil morning by listening to the monks chanting from the monastery.
    The climb to Dingboche will primarily be on a gentle inclination on day 5, which is also great because there won't be any significant uphills or downhills (unlike some of the previous days on trail). The majority of the day will be spent on a pleasant flat or gradual ascent.
    As you move on, you will gradually cross Ama Dablam and experience some new angles of the peak. When we get to the hamlet, proceed to the teahouse where we will be spending the following two nights.
  • Day 08:Acclimatization day in Dingboche Altitude: (4,400m) 14,435ft (2-3 hours) Our bodies will need time to adapt to breathing less oxygen at these higher altitudes because we will be expending a lot of energy during your hikes. Rapid elevation gain can cause altitude sickness (headaches, nausea, and dizziness), as well as potentially more serious side effects as cerebral and pulmonary edema.
    Acclimatization often starts at the 11,500-foot mark to help prevent altitude sickness on the Everest Base Camp journey. Due of Namche Bazaar's proximity to that altitude, all trekkers stay in the settlement for two nights to allow their bodies to adjust before continuing on their journey.
    A day hike to Nangkartshang / Chukkung Ri, our guide will take you for 4 hrs day hike from Dingboche after the breakfast.
  • Day 09:Dingboche Trek to Lobuche Altitude: (4,900m) 16,076ft Distance: 11-12 km (6-7 hours) The route to Lobuche for the day begins by turning left after passing Dingboche settlement. We will just go up into the valley along the trail that runs beside the wall of the mountain. The settlement of Pheriche is just beneath us as we make this bend into the valley. We will spend the night here before heading back to Lukla.
    Due to the altitude, you could experience some breathing problems today when you cross the Thugla Pass, but there's no need to freak out. The path from Dingboche to Thugla is easy, but the 1 hour climb over the Thugla pass is hard. Once over the mountain, the track is easy. Our journey continues until we get at Lobuche, where we will spend today. There is no reason to panic, even if we may experience some breathing difficulties as a result of the high altitude.
    The second-highest settlement along the route is Lobuche. You will spend a significant amount of the day walking towards and beside the famed Khumbu Glacier for the first time.
    You will be gaining very little elevation throughout the first 50% to 60% of the track as you proceed beside the valley wall. As the route enters the valley and ascends the Khumbu Glacier's moraine wall, the ascent does get a little more challenging.
    The hour-long, zigzagging road up to the Thukla Pass is the most difficult section of the walk from Dingboche to Lobuche. Before we reach the Everest Memorial, there will be a tougher continuous ascent for almost a kilometer.
  • Day 10:Lobuche Trek GorakShep and Day Hike to Everest Base Camp Altitude: (5164m)16,942ft & (5364m) 17598 Distance: 15km (7-8 hours) Through the rocky and harsh terrain, the route heads toward Gorakshep. You will get breathtaking views of Mount Everest, Mount Nuptse, Mount Pumori, and other peaks as you trek along the path. We will put our luggage off when we get to Gorak Shep, have a little break for tea, and then hike up to Everest Base Camp. Due to the thin air, the hike to Base Camp is difficult; pay close attention to your Guide. Before arriving at the Everest Base Camp, we go over stony dunes, moraines, and streams. When we get at the Everest Base Camp, we find mountaineers' tents, which we will see a lot more in the spring. We'll make the most of the chance to go to such a famous place. We return to Gorak Shep after seeing Everest Base Camp.
    Keep an eye out for the difficult terrain up ahead. All the way through, there will be a combination of sand and rocks, with some slippery areas as well. You should be well set as long as you take it slow and monitor your stride.
    The fact that Mount Everest can be seen for the majority of the path to base camp is another fact that many people are unaware of. You will be able to see the pinnacle of Everest, however it is only a very little portion of the mountain's summit, if the clouds are not in your way.
  • Day 11:GorakShep Morning Hike to Kalapathar and Trek to Pherice Altitude: (5,600m) 18,373ft & (4,320m) 14,173ft. Distance: 12-13 km (6-7 hours) We'll get up early this morning to climb to our final, highest destination, Kala Pathar, where we'll catch the sunrise and have a 360-degree, commanding vista of Mount Everest. In Nepali, Kalapathar means "Black Rock." When people were on top of this peak and saw the tallest mountains in the world, we often saw tears in their eyes.
    The settlement of Lobuche, where we spent the previous night, will be our first stop of the day. We will be traveling just next to and above the Khumbu Glacier along this section of the trek, providing you with panoramic views of the glacier and the surrounding mountains.
    Even while the majority of the path is quite simple and doable, there are a few tricky spots to be aware of. Of course, we've already finished this portion going the other way, so we ought to know what to anticipate.
  • Day 12:Pheriche Trek to Namche Bazaar Altitude: (3,440m) 11,283ft Walking Distance: 14.5 km (6-7 hours) You will travel from Pheriche to Namche Bazaar on the second to final day of your Everest Base Camp expedition, which is gradually drawing to a conclusion. You will begin the trek by leaving the settlement, crossing the river, and then returning up the valley wall while gaining some height. You may continue the valley's drop after passing through Pangboche by walking across a suspension bridge to the opposite side of the river.
    The river is below you as you travel the trail chiseled into the valley wall, Everest and Ama Dablam are behind you, and there is a stunning panorama in front of you.
    Your halfway point is Tengboche, so feel free to stop, have lunch, and enjoy some views of the Everest mountain range. You may also take some time to enjoy the Tengboche Monastery if you haven't already done so.
    In order to catch sights of Everest, Nupste, and Lhotse as you slowly make your way to Namche Bazaar, make sure to turn around occasionally. 12.1 miles / 19.5 kilometers
  • Day 13:Namche Bazaar Trek to Lukla Altitude: (2,850m) 9,184ft Distance: 14 km (6 -7 hours) Today is the final day to wrap up our Classic Everest Base Camp Trek, easy hike up to Lukla. Here we are saying bye to Sherpa’s and crew who helped us in our Classic Everest Base Camp Trekking Expedition. Day Tours Nepal strongly request to all our trek members to give tips to Sherpa’s because this is what they expect at the end after the successful trip. Evening enjoys the last moment with Sherpa’s and packs for tomorrow early morning flight back to Kathmandu.
    Namche to Lukla Trekking Trail;
    From there, the trail descends further, leading you down a series of dirt and stone stairs as well as across a few suspension bridges. As soon as you reach the bottom of the first steep descent, you will be able to stroll straight beside the river; from this point on, the decline is much more gradual.
    While the majority of this portion is downhill, there are a few upward hills as well, so be ready for those as you move forward.
    You will enjoy stunning mountain and river views while hiking through this section of the path, passing by tiny settlements and Sherpa stones, before returning to the village of Phakding.
    You will go farther down the valley after leaving Phakding with more river vistas, suspension bridges, and mountain ranges in front of you.

    However, for the final 4 km (2.5 miles) of the walk, you will encounter a significant slope rather than that gradual decrease. The route won't be very difficult, but it will have a few stair portions and an upward slope the entire way. Before you reach the outskirts of Lukla, you will pass through a few more little settlements.
  • Day 14:Fly from Lukla to Manthali Airport and Drive to Kathmandu Altitude: (1350m) 4,428ft After breakfast, we are seen here bidding goodbye to the Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary airport. a picturesque flight to the airport at Manthali. Drive to Kathmandu for 3–4 hours, check into hotel, and use afternoon free time for any last-minute Thamel shopping or massages.
    We won't need to travel an extra four hours if the flight to Kathmandu is direct. Evening Farewell supper is given by Day Tours Nepal and is with the crew. We would love to hear about your interactions with us, whether positive or negative, as it will help us do better moving forward.
  • Day 15:Final Departure After breakfast, you'll be taken to the airport in accordance with your flight schedule.

In this arrangement, the room normally offers two single beds for two trekkers of the same gender in a group, although a single room can be supplied if necessary. 
Warm and clean blankets, pillows, comfy mattresses, connected restrooms (not everywhere), and pleasant views are provided. However, at a hotel, the room can be upgraded to Luxury upon request. We'll make sure to put you up in the finest tea houses with the nicest views while you're on the walk.

On the Mount Everest Trek, what type of restrooms are available? 

These will differ substantially depending on your hotel budget. In Namche, you'll undoubtedly appreciate a fantastic, modern bathroom. As you ascend, you can come upon anything, even a hole in a shanty or a chilly western toilet. To be ready for everything, bring your own hand sanitizer and toilet paper.

What about the showers during Everest Trek? 

Yes, although the majority of hikers don't go for it. Showers in Namche, Lukla, and Pangboche are typically free, depending on the lodging and amount you pay. But the cost will rise as you go higher. Be at ease; nobody on the walk smells different. Staying warm will still be the key challenge. The wait is certainly worth it after going without a hot shower for days. It ultimately feels even better as a result of it.

What is the best time to trek to Everest Base Camp on 2023, and 2024?

Between February to May and October to December is the best time for trekking to Everest Basecamp. If you’d like to experience amazing views, the plan your trip from Mid – October to November, because that’s when the weather becomes abnormally clear and dry.

Altitude Sickness during the Mount Everest Trek

The most frequent challenge encountered while trekking to Everest Base Camp is unquestionably altitude sickness. It is more difficult than a regular trip since you journey over 3500 m altitude, where the likelihood of getting AMS is significant. As you hike higher in height, the oxygen level keeps dropping. Therefore, due to the low air pressure on highlands, human health may suffer. At the altitude you will be trekking, altitude sickness is a possibility.  The 15-day Everest Base Camp Trek starts at 2800 meters above sea level and ascends to 5500 meters. Altitude sickness risk rises in the absence of appropriate care and a schedule. In light of this, if you experience any symptoms, such as headache, nausea, dizziness, difficulty breathing, vomiting, or trouble sleeping, inform your guide.

Should I go to Everest Base Camp while taking Diamox? 

You should explore the benefits with your doctor in your own country before you go. Many people opt to use it as a protection against altitude sickness. If you decide to take, it is advisable to do it the day before you go off on your excursion, which includes taking half of the tablet. As a side effect, it does make you urinate more frequently than usual. This suggests that some cold midnight wake-up calls for the bathroom will be required.

Travel Insurance for the Everest Base Camp Trek

For your protection, it is strongly advised that you get travel insurance before embarking on the Everest hike. Your medical bills should be covered by the insurance, and in an emergency, helicopter rescue should be available. Because most businesses do not provide high altitude protection, it would assist if you made sure the insurance covers incidents over 5000 meters of elevation. Additionally, a helicopter evacuation is required to transport you to the closest hospital.

Should I buy my trekking gear at home or in Nepal's capital city of Kathmandu? 

Hiking gear is typically cheap and bogus in Kathmandu. Even while there are genuine brands like NorthFace, Sherpa Outdoor, and Mamut, most of what you find at Thamel is phony. Even while there is some equipment you'll want to buy yourself, you may still find counterfeit items. Nepal is a great alternative, and you can also get all kinds of trekking gear there. 

There are several apparel and equipment businesses along the streets of Thamel, the hub of tourism. All the equipment you require may be easily found, and buying it in Lukla or Namche is more expensive than doing so.
