Your adventure journey to Everest Base Camp begins with the flight to Lukla, the Everest region’s main gateway. Lukla is a small airport situated at 2,860 metres (9,383 ft), also known as TENZING HILLARY AIRPORT.
Lukla flight itself is adventurous and thrilling; from the flight, you can see the bird’s view of the city, diverse landscape, dense forest, mountains, etc. Reaching near the Lukla airport, the view of the mountains becomes clearer and clearer. After getting out of the airport, you will meet your guide and the porter.
Now, with the help of the guide and the porter, you will begin to trek to the Phakding. Today’s trek is pretty easy, and it takes only 3-4 hours to reach Phakding.
Before reaching Phakding, you will pass through several Sherpa villages and Cross Dudh Koshi River. You’ll find Buddhist monuments, colourful flags, and cool mountain views on the trail.

This national park is a conservation area, and you can find lots of species of plants and animals. Also, during the month of spring, the blossom of the rhododendron forest makes the trail path beautiful. After reaching Namche, you can see the majestic view of mountain peaks like Mt.Lhotse, Mt. Everest, Mt.Nuptse, Mt.Ama Dablam, Mt.Thamserku, etc.
Namche is the main tourist hub in this region, located at an altitude of 3,441 meters. You can find several shops, restaurants, hotels, banks and restaurants. You will spend the night in the tea house and rest well for tomorrow’s trek.
Today is the acclimatization day, which means we will take a short hike and rest well. If we go up really fast in the mountains, especially at a high place, there’s a good chance we might feel sick from the altitude. Acclimatization at the name Bazar is an important step to prevent altitude sickness.
To make this day fruitful, you have enough places to visit, like the Hillary Memorial Museum, hike to the Syangboche Airport, Everest Hotel, etc. You can get an excellent view of the surrounding mountains like Mt. Everest, Mt.Lhotse, Mt.Nuptse, Mt.Ama Dablam, Mt.Thamserku, Mt. Kongde etc.
After a short hike, you can also explore inside the bazaar for cultural and traditional exploration. You can try local handmade cuisine and enjoy the night at the tea house.
Walking away from Namche Bazaar is like saying goodbye to the busy town and stepping into the remote and rugged world of the high Himalayas. The trail starts going uphill slowly, through pretty rhododendrons and pine forests.
You can see really nice views of the mountains around you. Passing through the several charming villages you will stop at the Kyangjuma village for tea break. The sights of Mt. Everest and Mt. Ama Dablam have some of the most amazing views during the whole trek.
Continuing our journey, we will stop at the Village of Phunki for Lunch. Then, after fuelling our body, we will pass through several stairs and Chautara. Finally, you can see the beautiful small Tengboche village located at an altitude of 3,870 meters.
This village has the largest monasteries, named as Tengboche monasteries. After visiting this, we will return to the tea house for delicious and spend the night there.

Following the trail of the Imja Khola, we will stop at the small village of Shomare for Lunch. You can try the traditional dish as well. You can find the best momo of this region here.
Then, continuing the journey with the breathtaking view of the surroundings, you will finally reach Dingboche. This small, charming village is located at an altitude of 4,360 meters (14,305 ft).
Today is our second acclimatization day at Dingboche. We will adjust our body to the altitude and rest well for tomorrow’s trek. We will take a short hike and return to the tea house to spend the night.
You can climb to the top of Nangkartshang Peak, which is really high at 5,083 meters. It takes about 2-3 hours to walk up there. Once you’re at the top, you can see amazing views of Mt. Tawache, Ama Dablam, Island Peak, Lhotse, Everest, and Pumori. If you like, you can also visit Chhukung Ri, which is a popular peak in the area.
There are two summits, the main one in the middle of the picture. If you look to the left, you’ll see the path that leads to the saddle. From a ridge just a short walk south of Chhukung, you can even see Nuptse, a huge mountain in the background.
Dingboche is a common rest stop for Everest trekkers before heading to Lobuche. The trek starts with a leisurely walk past peaks like Ama Dablam. After two hours, the trail gets steeper, and most trekkers stop in Thukla for lunch and rest.
After a 30-minute break, the trail gets harder as you climb to Dugla Pass, where there’s a memorial park. Trekking alongside the Khumbu Glacier, you can see Kala Patthar and enjoy stunning views.
The trail to Lobuche involves sharp rocks, but after 30 minutes, it gets easier. Lobuche offers a spectacular view of the surrounding peaks. Despite the remote location, lodges in Lobuche are comfortable.
Due to the high altitude, some trekkers may experience mountain sickness. Even after acclimatizing in Dingboche, it’s important to be careful on the trail.
Today is your Everest Base Camp day. Wake up early, have a warm breakfast, and start around 5 am. The first hour is an easy walk despite the high altitude. The initial path is gradual and horizontal. After an hour, there’s a steep 20-minute uphill climb to Lobuche Pass at 5,110m.
The path, made by melting glaciers, is unstable in every season. Reaching Gorakshep takes about two hours, but the views are incredible. Take a break and have some food in Gorak Shep at 5,180m.
After the break, continue to Everest Base Camp. It’s only one and a half hours from Gorakshep. If you’re tired, go slowly. The trail is moderate but formed by melting glaciers.
Everest Base Camp is unstable due to rapid glacier melting caused by global warming. It’s just before the Khumbu icefall area where expedition teams pitch their tents.
Congrats when you reach Everest Base Camp! It’s not just any mountain base camp; it’s the highest one at over 5,364m. It’s a dream destination for adventure, nature, and mountain lovers.
Take pictures, celebrate, and enjoy the moment. After this unforgettable time, head back to Gorak Shep for an overnight sleep.
Get ready for a busy day of trekking! Early in the morning, around 4:30 am, we’ll hike to the top of Kalapathar (5545 m). It’s the best spot to see the sunrise and the stunning view of Mt. Everest. After this amazing experience, we’ll head back to Gorak Shep for breakfast.
Following breakfast, we’ll go back along the trek trail to Pheriche via Lobuche and Dugla.
The distance is about 9.8 km, and it takes 5-6 hours. Kalapathar is at 5,545m, and Pheriche is at 4,320m. Once back in Pheriche, refresh, have dinner, and get some well-deserved rest.
The Everest Base Camp Trek is almost over, and today is the second-to-last day of trekking. You’ll cover about 20 km, so it’s an early start to reach Namche on time. After packing and having breakfast in Pheriche, you’ll leave the village and head down to the river.
Crossing the river, you’ll enter the valley, gaining some elevation. Walking along the valley, you’ll reach the trail you previously walked on, but now you’re retracing it in a descending direction. You’ll still enjoy great Ama Dablam and Everest views, but they’ll be behind you.
As you continue, the trail gradually descends with more downhills than uphills. After a few hours, you’ll reach Pangboche village for a short rest. Then, you’ll descend further, crossing suspension bridges along the way.
Passing through Deboche and Tengboche villages, you’ll have lunch at Tengboche Monastery. After lunch, you’ll navigate a technical downhill section, crossing a bridge to start an uphill trek to the valley.
This uphill part might be challenging after a day of easy downhills leading you through a forested area. At the end of the uphill, you’ll find an easy route to Namche Bazaar. This path offers excellent views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Everest, with the Dudh Koshi River below.
As you walk on the easy trail, Namche Bazaar will come into view. This marks the end of the Pheriche to Namche Bazaar Trek. Have a nice dinner and get a good sleep before your last day of trekking to Everest Base Camp.
Today’s trek is short as we make our way to Phakding, following the Dudh Koshi River and crossing suspension bridges. Passing through forests and small villages, we’ll reach Phakding and take a break.
Again, we will follow the mostly gentle route uphill until Kusum Stream. Then, it becomes steeper. We’ll savour the scenery before continuing to Lukla. This marks our last day of trekking, and we’ll rest in Lukla for the night.
After breakfast, you’ll take a 40-minute flight back to Kathmandu, a relaxing journey to reflect on your achievement. Upon reaching Kathmandu, we’ll head to our hotels. The rest of the day is yours to spend as you please.

I totally enjoy many beautiful view, good foods, good... read more stay at the hotels, meeting good people along the way and last but not least, having an Experience, Great and Awesome Guide like Mr Sumir and his team were totally a lucky strikes! Thank you so very much for your kind supports and hard works during this trip. I coudn't hane done it without you.️️️
We’ve done many hikes around the world from Kilimanjaro , Patagonia. Choqouquiro route to Machu Picchu. This one by far was the most scenic and rewarding. It was not easy.... read more You had to be physically fit and mentally tough, but totally worth it. I would highly recommend the Himalayan adventure and trek company to manage your itinerary. They were fantastic!!
Disappointed - I am posting this very late but I have just come across my previous communication with the company which reminded me that I had forgotten to review.
I did so... read more much research before our trip, we travel a lot and understand the importance of choosing the right company to make the experience perfect but also to ensure that the company support the local community. Kisan and the company had such good reviews and we're also personally recommended by a friend that we chose them.
Right up until the day before the trip Kisan said that he would be our guide, we looked forward to learning so much from him as such an experienced guide. At the last minute he was unable to take us and we were sent with another guide. The guide we were sent instead was very nice, he was pleasant and helpful but it quickly became clear that he lacked the confidence and experience to bring the trip alive for us. We saw other guides chatting with their clients and pointing out interesting things. Our guide spent most of the time just chatting in Nepali with the porter and playing music on their phones, he often ignored us for hours at a time. We tried to engage him in conversation, he would answer our questions but then go back to chatting with the porter.
We felt that we missed out on learning about Nepali culture and nature. We wanted to hear about the locals who greeted us and find out the history behind the villages we were passing through,we know how a good guide makes a trip. We suspected that he was more used to being a second guide or a porter rather than the main guide. When we got back to Kathmandu this was confirmed by a quick check on TripAdvisor in which our guide was mentioned several times as a secondary guide or porter but never as the main guide. I challenged this with the company, I didn't expect anything and knew it wouldn't change anything but hoped they would perhaps just apologise and learn from my feedback. Messages went back and forth in which I was told he was a qualified guide, I asked several times how much experience he'd had but the question was avoided. This reaction was really disappointing, after a long exchange of messages I got some kind of apology but it was really too late and left a sour taste to be honest.
I'm sure that with one of the more experienced guides we would have had a different experience, as most other customers have, but we can only go on our experience. These types of holidays are once in a lifetime and I'm afraid that we felt that ours was a bit of a missed opportunity to be blown away by the beauty and culture.
Annapurna Circuit trekking and birding experience - I joined the Annapurna Circuit trek guided by guide Sumir and his team of porters. They were amazing , friendly and very helpful. The trek is challenging and the mountain... read more view awesome. I am grateful to my guide and his team of porters helping me spotting birds along the way for my photography. Great experience with the team and most important of all, I feel safe with them guiding me through the journey.
