18 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp is the foothill of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. The 18 days Everest Base Camp trekking route is one of the most popular trekking itineraries in the Everest Region. It offers an up-close view of Everest, the world’s tallest mountain, and allows adventurers to explore the majestic Mt. Everest and its breathtaking surroundings.

One of the thrilling aspects of this trek is flying to Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla. Situated at an altitude of 2,860 meters (9,383 feet), it is one of the world’s highest-altitude airports and one of the world’s most adventurous airports. Tenzing Hillary supervised the construction of the airport. The Everest Base Camp trek started from Jiri before the airport was constructed.

The Everest Base Camp Trek provides a unique experience, stunning scenery, and one of the best mountainous views. The route will take us through the picturesque town of the Everest region, Namche Bazar. Similarly, we will pass by Tengboche monastery, Sagarmatha National Park, glaciers, and many remote valleys.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is a challenging but rewarding experience. Trekkers explore the natural beauty of the Khumbu region and immerse themselves in the Sherpa community’s culture, traditions, and local customs.

Day to Day Itinerary

After breakfast, we get transferred to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport for an early morning flight to Lukla (2,860m), a gateway destination from where our trek starts. After an adventurous 30-minute flight above breathtaking green and white mountains, we reach the Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla.

This is one of the most beautiful air routes in the world, culminating in a dramatic landing on a hillside surrounded by high mountain peaks. Here, we meet our other crew members, and after some packing and arrangements, we start our trek through the prosperous village of Lukla until we reach Phakding. To assist in acclimatization, we only have a short hike today. However, if interested in additional activities, we can take a side trip to a nearby monastery.

Day 03:

Trek to Namche Bazaar

Trek Distance

7.4 km (4.6 mile)

Trek Duration

6 Hours

Highest Altitude

3,440m (11,285 ft)

Walking through a beautiful pine forest, the track leads us along the Dudh Koshi River through many suspension bridges, one of which is the famous Hillary Suspension Bridge. First, we catch wonderful prospect of the glistening Mt. Thamserku (6618 m). Through the settlement of Benkar, Chumoa, Monjo, we come to the check post and entrance to Sagarmatha National Park. We pass through the last village of Jorsale before reaching Namche Bazaar. The trail climbs through the forests and bridges until we reach the confluence of the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers. After a final steep ascent of about two hours we get first sight of Mt. Everest peering over the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. We stop at Chautara to admire the view. We still need to hike about 1.5 hours to reach Namche Bazaar, a gateway to Mt. Everest and main trading centre of this region.

Day 04:

Rest day in Namche Bazaar

This is the scheduled ‘acclimatization’ day for this trek. Health experts always recommend we stay active and moving during the rest of the day, too, instead of being idle. We can take a day hike, relax, and explore a hundred vertical feet during the day; it will help us acclimate properly. Our guides will take us to the Tourist Visitor Center near the headquarters of the Sagarmatha National Park, where we can observe an assortment of things related to the first Everest ascenders’ Sherpa culture and learn about the various plant and animal life of the Everest region.

We also take an interesting side trip up to Khumjung. We climb up to the famous airstrip at Syangboche. Just above the airstrip is the Everest View Hotel, a Japanese scheme to build a deluxe hotel with great views of the highest mountains on Earth. The snowy peaks of Kongde and Thamserku surround the Khumjung valley near Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar is the main center of the Everest (Khumbu) region. It has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery, and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. If we trek a few, the sacred peak, Khumbila, hosts a well-known monastery that houses a yeti scalp. We also visited Hillary School, which is on the same site. After having lunch and spending time in Khumjung, we walk back down to Namche Bazzar.

Day 05:

Trek to Tengboche

Trek Distance

5.9 km (3.6 mile)

Trek Duration

5.9 km (3.6 mile)

Highest Altitude

3,860m (12664 ft)

After breakfast in Namche, we start our trek towards Tengboche, enjoying a superb view of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and a close-up view of Thamserku. Our trek follows a gradual trail with few ups and downs, overlooking magnificent views of the great Himalayas. Along the way, we can spot wildlives like pheasants, musk deer, or a herd from Himalayan Thar. The trail goes gradually down up to Kayangjuma. The path eventually reaches Sansa, the major trail junction between Gokyo Valley and Everest Base Camp.

The track then follows through the pine forests, and after we cross the prayer flags festooned bridge over Dudh Koshi River, we reach Phunki Thenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post amidst the alpine woods. After a relaxed lunch at Phunki Thenga, we had a tough climb steeply up through the pine forests before we reached Tengboche. Tengboche is a great place for close-up views of Ama-Dablam, Nuptse, and Everest, and it has the biggest Buddhist Monastery in the Khumbu region. We visited the monastery the same day at around 3 p.m. to witness the ceremony in the principal and popular monastery of the Everest region.

Day 06:

Trek to Dingboche

Trek Distance

9.1 km (5.6 mile)

Trek Duration

6-7 Hours

Highest Altitude

4,360m (14,300 ft)

We start our trek from Tengboche to our next destination. With mountains as a backdrop, the monastery in Tengboche looks more spectacular in the morning. As usual, we snap pictures of the monastery and the surrounding scenery and start the day’s journey. We choose the upper trail for better views of Pangboche village and its ancient monastery. We pass through several Chortens, Mani walls, and small villages.

We enjoy lunch with fantastic close-up views of Ama-Dablam. In the afternoon, go north to Pheriche or take the eastward trail beneath the towering north face of Ama Dablam. From here onwards, the walk is fairly moderate as we enter the Imja Valley. The valley ahead will begin to open up as we approach the confluence of the Lobuche River. We descend into the river and begin the last and steepest climb of the day up to Dingboche. On arrival in Dingboche, we enjoy the beautiful fields enclosed by stone walls to protect the barley, buckwheat, and potatoes from the cold winds and grazing animals.

Day 07:

Rest and hiking to Chukung ri and back to Dingboche

Trek Distance

4 km (2.5 mile) (one way)

Trek Duration

2-3 Hours approx (one way)

Highest Altitude

5,546 m (18,195 ft)

From Dingboche, the trail gradually ascends about 3.1 miles or 5.3 kilometers to Chukhung. Chukkung Ri (5546 meters) is a rocky peak near the village of Chhukung in the Everest Region of Nepal. It offers breathtaking Imja Tse, Ama Dablam, Makalu, and Nuptse views. One thing is that you can’t see Mount Everest from Chhukung Ri. This is why it’s not as crowded as Kala Pattar and Gokyo Lake.

Day 08:

Trek to Lobuche

Trek Distance

8.4 km (5.2 mile)

Trek Duration

6 Hours

Highest Altitude

4,940m (16,200 ft)

Beyond Duglha, we trek up the steep terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. We find our way through the boulder-strewn slope as we ascend Chupki Lhara, an eerie ridge top with dramatic mountain views. At the top of the ridge, we will find an array of stones with prayer flags used as memorials to Scott Fischer (American mountaineer) and 10 times Everest submitter Babu Chiri Sherpa (mountain guide from Nepal), who perished on a mission to climb Everest. As the trail drops to the Khumbu Glacier moraine, we find ourselves right “in front of” several great peaks – Khumbutse, Lingtren, Pumori, and Mahalangur Himal.

We are now near Everest, but the great mountain remains hidden. Nuptse towers to the right as the trail crosses the Khumbu Glacier. As we trek along a murmuring stream, we do not see the Khumbu glacier because of its lateral moraine wall, and we now begin to feel a little out of breath due to the high altitude.

Day 09:

Trek to Gorak Shep to Everest Base Camp and back to Gorak Shep

Trek Distance

11 km (6.8 mile)

Trek Duration

8/9 Hours

Highest Altitude

5380m (17,650 ft)

The trail to Gorak Shep goes through the Khumbu Glacier’s lateral moraine. We pass through the pyramid signpost. Ahead of the trail, we see the crest of the north ridge of Everest along with Mt. Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern, Khumbutse, Nuptse, etc. A small ascent would take us to Thangma Riju. As we reach Gorak Shep, snow-capped mountains will surround us, looming all around, including the top of the world – Mount Everest. After a brief lunch and rest, we take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once-vast Gorak Shep. Lake and return to Gorak Shep.

Day 10:

Morning to Kalapather and trek to Deboche

Trek Distance

17 km (10.5 mile)

Trek Duration

9 Hours

Highest Altitude

5644m (18520ft)

This day is the climax of our trip. We start early in the morning to catch the dramatic views from Kala Patthar, witnessing the first light of day shining on Mount Everest. However, we need to get prepared for early morning; there is always the potential for chilly winds, which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse tower to the east even as the Everest trek begins to reveal itself, emerging between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse.

During the ascent to Kala Patthar, we can pause to catch our breath at several outstanding viewpoints to snap pictures. After several hours of ascent, we reach Kala Patthar. From here, we scramble to climb the rocky outcrop near the summit, marked by cairns and prayer flags. As we reach the top, we sit on the Kala Patthar rocks, our eyes taking in the unbelievable Himalayan panorama, and we wander from one mighty massif to another. We take as many pictures as possible with our camera and take the view with our mind’s eye to last a lifetime. Returning to Gorak Shep, we had breakfast and continued the trek to Deboche.

Day 11:

Trek to Tengboche

Trek Distance

8.5 km (5.2 mile)

Trek Duration

5 Hours

Highest Altitude

3800m (12,460 ft)

This day is easy to trek, downhill through the hillside blanketed by rhododendron and juniper trees if it’s spring, pink and red rhododendron flowers ablaze our surroundings.

Day 12:

Trek to Namche Bazzar

Trek Distance

9.1 km (5.7 mile)

Trek Duration

6 Hours

Highest Altitude

3440m (11,285 ft)

After breakfast, we start our trek; we walk about one hour down to the river, then uphill, crossing the prayer flag festooned bridge over the Dudh Koshi River trail, then follow the Dudh Koshi gorge, descending rapidly through the pine forests. The path eventually reaches Sansa, the region’s major trail junction. We stop at Kyangjuma (3570 m) for a relaxed lunch. We unknowingly appreciate the gorgeous Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Nuptse with every bite. Following lunch, the trail to Namche Bazaar clings to the steep wooded slope beyond Kyangjuma, winding through several bends.

We look for wildlife, such as mountain goats, snow leopards, colorful pheasants, etc., while we pass through the forest by the trail. After passing a Chorten, we reach the army camp at Namche Bazaar. We want to take a long last look (and picture!) back to Lhotse, the tip of Everest and Tengboche from here. On reaching our lodge, we take a nice hot shower and have a very relaxed sleep in our room in Namche Bazaar.

Day 13:

Trek to Phagding

Trek Distance

5 Hours

Trek Duration

2,652m/ 8,372 ft

The trail descends steeply, so we need to walk slowly and under control as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the fast-flowing DudhKoshi and its tributaries, the trail becomes more level and natural. By today, the light breeze has warmed us up. Any remaining sore throats and colds will be gone today as we pass through this charming mountain air to Phagding.

Day 14:

Trek to Lukla

Trek Distance

2860m/ 9383 ft

Trek Duration

4 Hours

Highest Altitude

2860m/ 9383 ft

After breakfast, we start trekking the same route down; we feel completely different views; we snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendrons, pine forests, and snow-covered peaks in the distance. We walk through the Sherpa villages, noticing impressive faith in Buddhism and the culture of prayer stones and prayer flags. On arrival in Lukla, we stretch those sore legs and recall the experiences of the last couple of weeks. We experience the culmination of a fantastic trek on a happy note, with everyone back safe and sound with smiles.

FAQs For 18 Days Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary

FAQ

When To Visit Mt. Everest Base Camp?

Are you traveling to Everest Base Camp and wondering which season is perfect? The best time to trek EBC is Spring and autumn, specifically from March to May and September to November. During these periods, the weather is generally stable and clear.

Spring | March to May

Spring is one of the best times to explore the beauty of the Everest region. It brings life with blooming rhododendrons and vibrant landscapes. The weather during this time is generally mild and pleasant. With warmer temperatures and clear skies, you can enjoy stunning views of the Himalayan peak and immerse yourself in the beauty of the surrounding nature.

Summer/Monsoon | June to August

The summer months in Everest coincide with the monsoon season, which means heavy rainfall and cloudy skies. Trekking in these months can be challenging due to slippery trails, frequent rainfall, and the risk of landslides. However, Everest offers lush green landscapes and fewer crowds for those seeking a quieter and more serene experience.

Autumn | September to November

Autumn is the best time to visit Everest Base Camp, with clear skies, mild temperatures, and stunning views of the Himalayas. The weather is stable, making it ideal for trekking and outdoor activities. The colorful autumn foliage adds to the beauty of the landscapes, creating a picturesque backdrop for trekkers. This season also coincides with major cultural festivals in Nepal, providing opportunities to experience.

Winter | December to February

Winter brings cold temperatures and snowfall to the Everest region. Thus, trekking to Everest Base Camp is challenging and snow-covered, requiring proper gear and experience for navigation. However, for adventure trekkers looking for a quieter and more enjoyable experience, winter can offer breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains and serene landscapes.

Everest Base Camp Trek Acclimatization Day

The Everest Base Camp Trek’s highest point is at Kalapather. It is at an elevation of 5,644 meters (18,520 feet). The high elevation results in trekkers getting altitude sickness or acute mountain sickness. Lower oxygen levels in the bloodstream cause it. As you move to a higher elevation, the oxygen level drops, resulting in altitude sickness.

The best way to avoid altitude sickness is to take rest days for acclimatization during the trek. Acclimatization helps your body to adjust to the higher elevation, temperature, and surroundings. In other words, it helps with physiological adaptation, which reduces the chance of altitude sickness.

During our 18 Days Everest Base Camp Trek, we take two days as rest days for acclimatization. These two days are:

  • Day 04: Rest day in Namche Bazaar
  • Day 07: Rest and hiking to Chukung Ri(5546 m /18195 ft) and back to Dingboche

Can a beginner trek Everest Base Camp?

The first preparation is physical fitness and training. While on trek, you must walk several hours on varied terrain daily. Thus, it is important to undertake exercise, running, and hiking activities. It is also essential to consult with healthcare professionals before trekking if you have any pre-existing health conditions.

It is highly advised for beginners to gradually ascend to higher elevations. This helps to acclimatize the body, lowering the risk of altitude sickness. It is vital to take precautions. So, researching and being ready for challenges is key. You might face them during the Everest Base Camp Trek.

Physical and mental preparation plays a significant role in the Everest Base Camp Trek. The physically demanding route can also be mentally strenuous, so mental preparation is also important. Proper equipment and gear are also crucial for beginners, so it is highly recommended that they invest in quality gear.

Beginners should research and consult with trekking agencies before embarking on the journey. They can get valuable information and guidance to help beginners take the Everest Base Camp Trek challenge.

Permits for Everest Base Camp Trekking

For the Everest Base Camp Trekking, you will require three permits. These include:

TIMS

TIMS refers to the Trekkers’ Information Management System. All trekkers in Nepal, including those trekking to Everest Base Camp, must follow this requirement. The permit maintains the record of the individuals who are trekking in different regions of Nepal. It also ensures the safety and security of the trekkers.  Trekkers can get TIMS from Kathmandu or Pokhara.

Sagarmatha National Park Entry

The Everest Base Camp Trek route passes through the Sagarmatha National Park. Therefore, trekkers must obtain a national park entry permit, which they can acquire in Kathmandu or at the Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate.

Local Permit

Everest Base Camp is in the Khumbu region. Therefore, trekkers must obtain the Khumbu Rural Municipality Permit. You can obtain this permit in Lukla or from the Sagarmatha National Park Counter if you arrive from Jiri or Salleri.

When you book the 18-Days Everest Base Camp Trek with Himalayan Leaders, the package includes permits.

How to prevent altitude sickness during the EBC trek?

It is common for trekkers to suffer from altitude sickness during the Everest Base Camp Trek. Since the base camp lies at a high elevation, the low oxygen level leads to altitude sickness. So how can you prevent this?

Here are a few ways you can prevent altitude sickness during the Everest Base Camp Trek:

  • Ascend gradually to allow your body to adjust to the higher altitude, temperature, and surroundings.
  • Take rest days to acclimatize as you move to higher elevations, but stay active.
  • It is important to stay hydrated, but avoid excessive caffeine and alcohol intake and smoking while on a trek.
  • Carry medications like acetazolamide to help prevent altitude sickness. However, consult with health professionals before using them.
  • Be attentive to your body and symptoms. If you notice symptoms, take immediate action, such as taking medication.
  • If the symptoms continue to persist, climb down to the lower elevation.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp

The Everest Base Camp trek is popular worldwide as one of the most famous and challenging treks.

Everest and the surrounding Himalayan peaks.

Trekkers can visit monasteries, witness traditional ceremonies, and better understand the Sherpa heritage. This cultural exchange adds a profound dimension to the trekking experience, creating lasting memories and fostering a greater appreciation for the Himalayan region.

In conclusion, the Everest Base Camp Trek is an extraordinary adventure that combines breathtaking natural beauty, awe-inspiring mountains, and unique wildlife encounters.
