Everest Base Camp Trek
1350

Overview

A trek to Everest Base Camp is the ultimate trekking experience, full of everything Nepal has to offer with a little bit more and one that will remain with you forever. It is possible on a clear day to view a small speck in the far off distance from The Kathmandu Valley hills.You can also view it from the comfort of a plane seat on one of the many daily mountain flights sightseeing tours from Kathmandu. However, there is only one way for the ultimate Everest experience if you truly have the need inside you. Go early in the morning before sunrise on a cold and possibly windy day when your muscels may ache and stand face to face with the last earthly stairway on the journey to the heavens.

Getting there is often as important,enlightening.Apart from the fabulous region, the people are amazing an opportunity to enter into the unique and colorful Sherpa people both weathered and shaped by this harsh mountain envireonment.A chance to be amongst them and soak up their rich cultural heritage and lifestyle as you are truly walking alonside them. We visit the 500 year old Thyangboche Monastery on route set almost surreal surrounded by mountains in the pristine wilderness of Sagarmatha National Park.

The trail up is pretty demanding at times but not so demanding If you are reasonably fit, very possible.We follow the route once walked by the iconic mountaineers Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay.The trek is designed for a steady gain of altitude with separate rest days included to ensure that we are properly acclimatized to fully enjoy the experience.

The experience starts on day one with a spectacular flight through the heart of the Himalayas to the mountain airstrip of Lukla.From this tiny airfield carved in to the mountains, the trail leads up through Sherpa villages, past Buddhist Monasteries, amidst alpine forests of fir and rhododendron and across high suspension bridges.We need to be aware of the caravans of Yak along the way to Namche Bazaar. Namche itself is worth a mention,it is a colorful, bustling market post set in a natural amphitheater where traders from as far away as Tibet come to exchange and barter their goods.

Moving up the trail the views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam from Tengboche are out of this world,breathtaking.Climbing above the tree line we cross alpine pastures and glacial moraine before eventually reaching Kala Patthar surrounded by rock, snow and ice for compelling views as these ice clad monsters reach out to touch you.

Many people dream of the chance to view the highest place on earth, only a few will actually acheive the dream.Will you?

Should I Do Any Training Before Trekking The Everest Base Camp?

If you’re fully fit, you don’t need any specific training. If you are completely deskbound, then some cardiac training is recommended before trekking. You can try stair climbing or hill walking. You'll be trekking uphill and downhill on rough paths for 13 days and 5 to 7 hours per day. Altitude may also make things harder for you. We build in days to acclimatise on the way which helps a lot. In short the fitter you are the more you will enjoy the experience.

What’s The Difficulty Level For Everest Base Camp Trek?

Everest Base Camp is a comparatively hard trek. In terms of topography, no ropes and no ice picks are needed, there is no vertical climbing. However, the ground is not paved so at times it is going to be a rough, rocky, and gravel-strewn. The trek involves long trails that go up and then down repeatedly. You should take caution if you have weak ankles. There can also be snow and ice on the trails depending upon the seasons. All our guides are experienced at high altitude.

Well, it depends on your current travel insurance provider. Some insurance may not include mountain trekking or mountain climbing. You should check with them to confirm that trekking if your policy covers the Everest Base Camp trek Some insurance may not cover you above certain altitudes as well.

  1. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I; myself and two friends completed Everest Base Camp Trek with Achut. I could not recommend this company enough!!!! Firstly, Basu was so helpful and answered so many of our questions before we got to Nepal including organizing a customized itinerary for us. He then personally picked us up from the airport and settled us into a very very nice hotel! The next day we met our guide Achut who took us to the best shops in Thamel to buy gear for our trek. We struggled to fly into Lukla due to weather and it took us an additional 3 days. This was no problem at all as Nepal Social Treks organized further nights accommodation at the hotel and took us sightseeing in Kathmandu instead! Achut was extremely knowledgeable throughout the entire trek. He knew so much about the history, geology, geography and everything in between. He was also very switched on in assessing myself and my friends when we started to get slight altitude sickness and changed the itinerary slightly to allow for some extra acclimatization. Achut has done the hike over 100 times so knew the trek back to front and the owners of the tea houses. He always ensured our food was cooked to a perfect standard and our tea boiled sufficiently. When my friends and I suffered different bouts of altitude sickness he also carried our bag to aliveate the weight. We felt completely comfortable with Achut and knew we were in safe hands. He was regularly in contact with Basu to update him on our status and it was very evident that the company truly cares and is passionate about their work. After the trek, the service did not stop. Basu managed a driver to Pokhara for us and paragliding there. Both Achut and Basu have kept in regular contact throughout our time in Nepal ensuring that they are still of assistance if we need more recommendations or assistance. You will have a fantastic time in Nepal with Nepal Social Treks and truly feel well looked after! Do yourself a favor and book with Nepal Social Treks!! I will be recommending to all my friends and family.

    Nepal Social Treks and Expedition went above and beyond for our time in Nepal. First off all Basu answered all our queries via email prior to our arrival in Kathmandu. He then picked us up at the airport and took us to our hotel (which was very nice nice hospitality!). On the following day, we met our guide and finalized the details for our Everest base camp trek. Our Guide Achut was amazing and we would not have been able to complete the trek without him and our two porters Baagai and Pemba. Achut on this day even took us around Thamel and helped us get our last pieces of equipment for the trek which were inexpensive and great quality! Achut was a fantastic guide highly knowledgeable constantly educating us about Nepal, its culture, the mountains, flora, and fauna of the trek. He helped our members of the group when they fell ill and even carried our day bags when we needed it during the trek. He went above and beyond to make our journey to base camp and back a great experience and as comfortable as possible! Following our trek, Basu further helped us organize a car to Pokhara and then even paragliding at a very reasonable price with the best paragliding company in Pokhara. We cannot thank Basu and Nepal social trek and expeditions for all their help and for making our time in Nepal so amazing.

    Del 6 al 17 de abril 2018 hicimos el ebc Trek con Nepal social treks. Toda la organización del viaje ocurrió sin incidentes y según lo planeado. En Katmandu, el guía Raju nos ayudó y asesoró para preparar el equipamiento, lo cual fue muy útil porque luego hizo mucho frío. Nos sentimos cuidados durante todo el Trek, principalmente con los cambios que van ocurriendo en el cuerpo con la altura, Raju es muy competente para detectar y tratar los síntomas normales de los que pueden ser complicados. Terminamos el Trek un día antes, y NST arreglo rápidamente el nuevo alojamiento en Katmandu. En fin, todo el viaje ocurrió como lo planeamos, nos sentimos muy cuidados por el guía y NST estuvo a disposición todo el tiempo.

    My first trip ever to Nepal and definitely not the last one. It was a well-organized trek by Nepal Social Treks. I will trek with this company again and again for sure :) Great guide, Kamal, made us feel comfortable and safe throughout the trek. He and our porter, Amar, were so competent and friendly - such a good company! Beautiful and challenging trek, just go!
  5. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Just finished an Everest Base Camp trek with my wife, 2 kids (13 & 10), my father (71) and 2 friends. Right from the start over 12 months ago when the idea to do it was dreamt up, Samjhana from Nepal Social Treks has been fantastic. She is very quick to respond to any queries and assist with all aspects of our trip. The trip itself was amazing! Standing as 3 generations at EBC was something special that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Achut, our guide was amazing. His years of experience in the mountains really showed with not only his knowledge of the area but the respect he is shown from other guides, porters and everyone who works in the mountains. He is a true gentleman who goes well above and beyond to ensure that everyone enjoys the experience. Our 3 porters were also fantastic and also assisted in all aspects to of the trek. When my son and friend became sick on the way down, this is where the whole Nepal Social Trek team really shone..... from organizing helicopters, hospitals, dealing with insurance companies, visiting them in hospital, organizing accommodation arranging transport from the hospital, they were fantastic! We saw lots of others who weren’t given the same treatment from their trekking company when things went wrong and were so glad that we weren’t part of their trek. We will return to Nepal for more amazing trips in the future as a family and can rest assured that we will be using Nepal Social Treks for any of those adventures. Hopefully, Achut can join us as our guide! Thanks to the whole Nepal SocialTrek team for an amazing adventure.
  6. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Recently I myself and my husband did Everest Base Camp Trek in last week of September 2017. Ours was a big group of 40 participants from Pune, India. On landing, in Kathmandu, we were pleasantly surprised to know that our Nepal part of the trek was handled in coordination with Nepal Social Treks, Kathmandu. This was our third big trek with Nepal Social Treks. Before this, we had done Annapurna Circuit Trek with them and we were extremely happy with the management and the ground support team of Nepal Social. This time also Basu and Samjhana kept the same standard and took care of such a large group with minute attention. The whole logistics of travel within Nepal, on the trek and stay arrangements in Kathmandu, was very well managed with absolutely no complaints. Our main guides on the Trek Raju and Damodar were very well attentive of the group’s needs and provided all needed support when few of our members faced AMS issues. Considering the big size of our group we had equally big size of support team and porters. But besides the big size, our luggage was always well taken care of and delivered at each location on time. Overall it was a very happy experience just like last time. We would be more than happy to recommend the Nepal Social to anyone and we ourselves look forward to doing more treks with them in the future. Vinaya Kulkarni Pune, India

    I booked a budget-14 days-trek to Everest Base Camp. Basu and his wife Samjhana from Nepal Social Treks organized things well and chose a very very nice Guide (Lakpa Sherpa) who is from Khumbu-area and knows the area well. His English was good and he was caring very much for me. Also, the porter Gomba who is a friend of Lakpa was nice. The lodges were basic but rooms were clean and absolutely ok. The food on the trek and in the chosen lodges was good. I would book again with them!
  8. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Basu and his team are a bunch of great people, they look after us from day one and still kept connected after the trip. They really know about customer services and we had great guides and porters during the Trek! Because I and my friend did not have the time to research and organized the whole trip in Nepal (3 weeks) Basu did it all for us! We did rafting in the river and a jungle safari. They were very flexible to change our plan if we need it. Recommend this trekking company, especially if you like to leave a little something back to Nepal ... as part of the profit goes to an Orphanage in Kathmandu (which you also visit during your trip!) the best success to you guys!
