Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal's high Himalayas - an ultimate adventure :
It is every trekker and hiker's dream to stand face to face with Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth! On our Everest Base Camp Trek, your dreams will come true. Three of the highest peaks, Everest, Lhotse and Cho-Oyu, guard this holy sanctuary of the Himalayan Gods. Beautiful, secluded monasteries are bestowed with strings of fluttering prayer flags, Mani stones engraved with Buddhist mantra's line the trails, and an unbending faith in traditional values embrace this Sherpa world. Climb Kalapathar (18,190') for a stunning view of Everest and surrounding peaks.
Mt. Everest was named after Sir George Everest, the british Surveyor General of India, at that time the mountain was identified as 'Point XV' on the border of Nepal and Tibet. To the Sherpas and Tibetans, however, she is 'Chomolungma' the Mother Goddess of Earth and for the Nepalese it is 'Sagarmartha,' Top of the World!View of Everest range from Kalapatther, everest base camp trek

At the foot of Mt. Everest's southern side lies the Everest Base Camp (E.B.C.), used by the successful 1953 expedition of the late Hilary and Tenzing and countless Everest expeditions ever since.
Although seated in the heart of the Himalayas, at a height of 5600 meters (18,370 ft), a trek to Everest base camp does not require the technical abilities of more experienced high altitude mountaineers. There are no rocky ridges to traverse, no scrambling or technical climbing, just a good, well-graded path accessible to all keen hikers and trekkers which leads all the way to the foot of the world's highest mountain.

However, one element that should not be underestimated is that everything you will experience, the Everest trail and its fabulous culture, history and scenery, will take place at altitude. The key to trekking to Eeverest Base Camp is therefore in careful pacing and taking the time to acclimate ( Acclimatization). With over a decade of organizing Himalayan treks you can be sure that all Earthbound Expedition treks to E.B.C. allow sufficient time for acclimation, with some days spent either just walking for a couple of hours or at rest. When choosing a trek to Everest Base Camp you need to decide whether you actually want to reach base camp or just visit the nearby viewpoint peak of Kalapathar.

Rather than the E.B.C. itself, Kalapathar offers the best close-up views of Everest. We can appreciate that reaching base camp is the pinnacle for many dedicated trekkers and hikers and so all of our Everest itineraries include both base camp and Kalapathar. Dozens of companies offer Everest Base Camp treks but we believe our experience, safety precautions, and solid record of trekking and climbing in the Himalayas puts us at the top of the list for trekking in Nepal and Tibet.

People who did Everest base camp trekking with us said....
.. "Rajan we want to extend our thanks and appreciation to you and all of Earthbound Expeditions that made our stay in Nepal such a pleasant and safe experience that will be remembered by us for a long time. Since I celebrated my 75th birthday with you on Everest Base camp trek, I am leaving my options open and I will try to stay in shape in case my son Mike needs company, he still has quite a few birthdays to celebrate and I know that he is anxious to spend some back in Nepal".., Joe and Mike, USA, Nov. 2007 Read more >>> even at

Please join us on this 18-day, the most famous trek in the world Everest base camp trek - a must do trek in your life time if you are an outdoor lover, a Hiking to Everest base camp.

18 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking hiking nepal
Day 01 :
Arrival in Kathmandu Nepal:
you will be met and assisted by Earthbound Expeditions representative and transferred to hotel which is located close to the tourist district of Thamel and offers comfortable accommodation.

Day 02 :
Kathmandu - sightseeing
A pre-trek briefing will be conducted today , also introduce with guide. This will also offer you the ideal opportunity to ask any last minute questions that you may have. A half day sightseeing tour of World Heritage sights will also be arranged. Overnight in hotel.
Day 03 :
Kathmandu - Lukla (2880m) - Phakding (2740m).
Our early morning flight by Twin Otter aircraft rushes us to Lukla, the most renowned mountain airstrip in the world. On the flight we watch the rugged foothills give way to the snowline of the Himalaya; many of the world’s highest mountains, including Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu (the world’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th highest respectively) may sometimes be seen from the window of the plane. Once we are in Lukla Surprisingly, this high-altitude trek begins by descending to the river at Phakding. WE stay there.
Day 04 :
Phakding - Namche Bazzar (3445m).
The first day may have been surprisingly long for some, but stay at Phakding allows us to begin the ascent to Namche Bazaar first thing in the morning. At about half-way up the hill, a gap in the trees allow us to spy Everest for the first time. If the weather is clear the top of the South-West Face will be just visible behind the long Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. A plume can often be seen stretching away from the very summit.
Namche is the most prosperous and the largest town in the Khumbu. A bazaar is held here every Saturday. The wares on display include meat, grains and vegetables, tennis shoes and trinkets as well as hand woven aprons and Tibetan boots. The Sherpas play host to trader from the foothills, as well as Tibetans from over the border. Thamserku (6648m), Kwangde Ri (6187m) & Khumbila (5707m) surround the natural bowl that Namche sits in.
Day 05 :
Namche - Rest / acclimatization day.
We take the day off to allow our bodies to adjust to the rarefied atmosphere before ascending to higher altitudes. The secret of safe acclimatisation is to ‘climb high, sleep low’ so it is safe for the more energetic amongst us to hike up the hill behind Namche to the airstrip at Syangboche, or stroll across to the museum behind the police post. Others may prefer to ‘chill out’ and visit one of the lodges for a freshly-baked cinnamon roll. Namche is a busy and bustling trading place and there is always plenty going on.
Day 06 :

Namche - Thame (3801m) - Khumjung (3,791m)
After our day off we traverse west, enjoying marvellous view of Kwangde Ri and the waterfalls that cascade off its flanks. The trail stay high up on the bank of the Bhote Khose, and we wander through a yellow and white rhododendron forest that comes into full bloom in May. As we cross the river, we look back down the valley for beautiful views of Thamserku and Kusum Kangru (6369m), before ascending through more rhododendron forest to pasture lands in front of Thame. This is the birth place of Tenzing Norgay, the Sherpa who made the first ascent of Everest with Edmund Hillary in 1953.
We return back down the valley via Thamo, a hillside nunnery, and then take a high trail that by passes Namche and finally drops into Khumjung. This village is one of the most beautiful in Khumbu. The Himalayan Trust has a school here, as well as a medical post (for locals and trekkers) in nearby Khunde.

Day 07 :
Khumjung - Tengboche (3863m).
The trail this morning descends to the Dudh Khosi. There are spectacular views of Ama Dablam (6696m) and Kantega (6779m) as well as Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8501m). Keep a look-out too for pheasant in the undergrowth. We cross the river at Phunki Thanga and climb through the afternoon amongst rhododendron forest to the saddle at the top of the hill. Suddenly in front of us is Tengboche, the principal monastery of the Khumbu area; the views from here are unforgettable.
Day 08 :
Tengboche - Dingboche (4412m).
We follow the path down from Tengboche through the rhododendron forest to Deboche and cross an exciting bridge with the boiling, roaring Imja Khol beneath our feet. A gradual climb takes us to the village of Lower Pangboche. We are now in the heart of the Khumbu, with spectacular views across to Ama Dablam. The afternoon stroll takes us along a path that hugs the valley wall and then across wide plains to a split in the valley. The Khumbu breaks left, up to Periche, but we take a detour right to the hamlet at Dingboche at the start of the Imja Tse valley.
Day 09 :
Dingboche - Rest / acclimatization day.
Rather than just sitting around in the tents or tea house, we encourage you to attempt one of two hikes. The shorter option ascends the hill immediately behind Dingboche, to drop steeply down to Periche. The Himalayan Rescue Association operates a medical post here and the western doctors conduct excellent seminars on Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS) here on most afternoons. The longer option is to trek up the Imja Tse valley towards Island Peak. The views of Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Cho Polu from here are outstanding. After a few hours the trekker terminus of Chukung is reached, and after a rest we return down the valley.
Day 10 :
Dingboche - Lobuje (4931m).
We climb up to the ridge behind Periche and stay high, mesmerized by the views of Tawoche and Cholatse, until we reach the tea houses at Dughla. A steep, stiff ascent to the terminal moraine of the Khumbu glacier is now tackled. The top of the climb is marked by a series of stone monuments to commemorate some of the climbers that have not returned from expeditions to this region. A rough but obvious trail cuts across left, away from the glacier, to our camp site at Loboje, a windswept collection of huts tucked in a narrow meadow between the glacier and the Loboje Peak (6156m). The Lhotse ridge is simply awesome from this angle.
Day 11 :
Lobuje - Kala Pattar (5545m) - Gorak Shep
A long day and an early start. We trek along the rough path along the side of the Khumbu glacier to the tea shacks at Gorak Shep. Behind rises the attractive 7000m peak of Pumori which dwarfs our trek’s summit of Kala Pattar. The route up is straightforward and takes most people between 90 minutes and 2 hours. All the peaks - Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam and scores of other lesser peaks can be seen from this wonderful vantage point.

Day 12 :
Gorak Shep - Everest Base camp 5,364 mtrs - Lobucje
This is the day! You will re-pack your pack this morning before breakfast and then put a smile on your face….and get ready for the fairly easy trek from Gorak Shep to Everest Base Camp. You may have a special token you would like to place there…prayer flags are popular, or a stone, a crystal, a photo of a loved one….anything that has meaning to you, as long as it’s eco-friendly. The base camp has been cleaned up nicely by some expeditions who came specifically for that purpose so the icefall and glacier are in pristine condition. The elevation here is 5,364 meters, 17,598 feet.
Enjoy you lunch at Base Camp and take lots of photos to commemorate the moment before hiking back out to Gorak Shep. You will stop to pick up any of your personal belongings you have left at the guesthouse and begin the trek back out to Lobuje. Overnight at Lobuje guesthouse.
Day 13 :
Lobuje - Phortse (3847m).
We descend all morning via Periche to Pangboche, whereupon we stay high on the west bank of the river all the way to the Sherpa village of Phortse, which lies on the lower southern flank of Tawoche, directly across the valley from Tengboche.
Day 14 :
Phortse - Namche (3445m).
We now descend through a forest to the Dudh Kosi. From the very pretty crossing point, we climb to a chorten where there are wonderful views back across the valley to Phortse, Tengboche and the surrounding mountains. Eventually we turn south off the main trail to Khunde and Khumjung, contouring past the Everest View Hotel. The route then leads down the hill to Namche and more cinnamon roll!
Day 15 :
Namche - Lukla (2880m).
Most people head towards Lukla with a heavy heart. There is something very special about the setting, the villages and the people of the high Khumbu hills and valleys and our memories help us up the deceptively long, final climb into Lukla. Our campsite and house are well located and offer a good final resting spot.
Day 16 :
Lukla - Kathmandu.
Another chance to enjoy this great flight. Please note that flights into Lukla are sometimes delayed due to un-flyable conditions either in fog-bound Kathmandu or windy Lukla; be reassured that our staff in Lukla and in Kathmandu will be doing everything possible to minimize the inconvenience caused if this happens. Your patience in the sometimes trying circumstances which can occur will be greatly appreciated.
Upon arrival back in Kathmandu you will be met by our Earthbound Expeditions representative and transferred to the Hotel.
