About Everest Base Camp Trek - 15 Days

The Everest, region is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Nepal , which is famous for its fantastic mountain peaks and the beauty on the hills. Most of the places to this spot go through ridges and trails, but you would have ample space to rest and have meal on your way. And one of the best things about this place is that you don’t have to worry about being lost, as you can ask anybody for the next village. The people here are very friendly and offer help and support even to strangers. The people who live here are mostly shepherds and understand English; some even speak it fluently.

You can come to this destination all around the year as people trek in all seasons; however the best time to come to this area is between March to mid may and between Septembers to mid November. Many people do not prefer coming here in winters as the weather is very cold and the snow all around may make your trekking experience difficult. In such conditions, it would not be possible to go to higher altitudes. At higher altitudes, the lodges may even be closed due to the weather and you might have a difficult time in finding a place to rest and spend the night. Therefore it becomes a mandate to carry your tents along. Not to mention, the nights may get very cold and you would have to carry some extra clothes to keep you warm.

During the summers, the season is wet and the peaks are lost in the clouds. Therefore April and May might just prove a good time to go around this place. You can enjoy the tree and shrubs blossoming in this season, with Rhododendrons in particular. This adds a spectacular color and beauty to the surrounding. However the views are much better if you plan a post monsoon trek than a pre monsoon trek because the rain and wind clear the dust which blows from the terrain. However while trekking to this area; it is mandatory to visit the Trekker's Information Management System (TIMS), particularly if you are going to Khumbu region.

Most of the lodges and restaurants in the Khumbu region only accept the Nepalese currency. As the place is relatively cheaper than India in terms of currency value, you can expect a budget of Rs. 1000-1500 per person per day for accommodation and meals. The price would increase for these amenities as you go to higher altitudes. Different items have different charges according to the availability and product.

The preparation before trekking to this area should be adequate. Beside some of the few obligatory items like hiking boots, warm clothes, UV sun-block etc, there are a lot of things that you need to carry on your way ahead. A lot of stuff that you might not have considered taking along are mentioned here; these things may seem unnecessary at first but would enhance your trekking experience once you start your trip. Firstly, you must carry water-disinfecting drugs which can be found n Kathmandu.

This would help in treating your own water bottles which you can fill from nearby lakes and rivers. It would also save your money on buying new water bottles every time. You should carry soft and light shoes, also known as Kung-Fu shoes. After you have trekked for a long time, you would have a great pleasure in slipping in your light weight shoes and going around the place. You can wear them, in and around the villages. Carrying a light weight knapsack is also a great idea as you would be able to fit in your camera and other stuff in it, like a few clothes or even e sleeping bag; if you plan to spend the night in the open.

Light weight sleeping bags are a must even though most lodges offer you blankets. It is very common fact that these blankets have a terrible stink and might just not be comfortable enough. It is also advised that you carry a high- quality sleeping bag which can give a comfortable temperature even at -10 C°. You should take along with you, band aids and other sticking plasters as even the most small and unattended blister or wound may turn a wonderful walk into as painful as hell. Do not leave any blister or wound untreated as there are high chances of an infection. Duct tapes are also a good alternative to band- aids. And to enjoy the great view of the mountain and the terrains, binoculars are a must. It would help you to spot the most vibrant and exquisite views of nature in the form of flora and fauna.

You can hire a porter as well for the journey who would help you in carrying your backpack and other stuff. If you are strong, then you do not generally need one, but if you do hire a porter, it directs cash into the needy and poor families of the villages. Most of the porters are honest in this area but you should still take care and use your power of judgment to choose the best and loyal among many. An unconcerned and careless choice may just ruin your entire vacation.

If you are thinking of hiring a guide, it is advised not to do so if you are trekking up to Tengboche or Pangboche. Above that point, you might have to consider hiring one. The guides would help you in explaining the local sights and guiding you through the path in nights. They might prove to be of great help if you fall ill or suffer any infection or discomfort. The guides generally speak English and other regional languages and also have an official license to operate. however, you should remember that carrying your bags is not a part of their job. But like porters, they manage their own accommodation and meals unless you invite them to join your group. It would definitely be a pleasure thought to get accustomed to their way of living and culture.

Itinerary:
While there are various things to ponder over when you consider other treks, Everest Base Camp doesn’t really need one. It’s possibly the easiest access that there is to get a glimpse of the highest point on earth, Mt Everest (8850m).

The trek is not only scenic, but also challenging, as it gives you the perfect sense of adventure, right from the moment you land in Lukla. For years, this has been a path trodden by mountaineering greats and at the end of it, you can say you were one of the fortunate ones to follow in their footsteps.

Day 1: Arrive Kathmandu

You arrive in Kathmandu , and report to hotel. We will introduced to the guide and will also be briefed about the trek. Sufficient time would be given for window shopping and trek preparation The guide will make sure that your equipment is in place and might recommend any gear that needs to be purchased or rented. 

DAY 2: Kathmandu TO Lukla
Take the exciting flight out to Lukla after breakfast and then trek down to Phakding (8700 ft). The flight is only 35 minutes, but Lukla is a spectacular airport. The trek is fairly simple and you will pass through many villages and get a chance to look at the lifestyle and farming in the region.

Day 3: Lukla to Phakding
If the flight wasn’t breath-taking enough, landing at the Tenzing Hillary Airport at Lukla surely will be considering its short runway nestled amid the mountains. A good place to buy some last minute essentials, especially prayer flags that you can put up at Everest Base Camp, we start out the same day as a three to four our walk will bring us to Phakding.

Day 4: Phakding to Namche Bazaar
We wake up to the sound of the Dudh Kosi and get ready to tackle the first real challenge. The walk up to Namche Bazaar is steep where we cross a number of suspension bridges. There’s a lot of curios on the way that are sold by locals, but remember that you have to carry it all! Once you enter the Beyul Khumbu Park, it’s a short work to Namche Bazaar.

Day 5: Namche Bazaar
Spending a day at Namche bazaar. Explore the place and get acquainted to the environment. You have plenty of time to move and discover the surrounding of new place. Sleeping inside blanket wouldn’t help you so move out and have a lovely time.

Day 6: Namche Bazaar to Tengboche
Starting off past the terraced fields once we leave Namche Bazaar, we get closer to the snow-covered mountains on this day. The track is well-maintained and soon, we will walk through a rhododendron forest. The finally two hours is again a steep climb that leads to the Tengboche monastery, right adjacent to the village.

Day 7: Tengboche to Dingboche
The walk today is one of the easiest of the trek as we first make our way down to a forest, until we start climbing towards Dingboche. The vegetation makes way for shrub in patches, and soon, the spectacular Ama Dablam peak pops up. The sight is enough to keep you occupied and before you know, we would have reached Dingboche.

Day 8: Dingboche to Lobuche
The day starts off with a steep climb for a short distance, before you are on flat ground again. The landscape around you will be white, making it seem like a walk through fairyland. But en route are also small stone memorials dedicated to those who had died in this region – a stark reminder of how important it is to be safe in the mountains. Here on, it’s a simply walk to Lobuche.

Day 9: Lobuche to Gorakshep
There’s enough reason to ignore any pain today, for just a day’s walk will bring you to Everest Base Camp. The only challenge en route is jumping across the many rocks and stones that dot the wide valley. You will be surprised to see tiny flowers growing here, despite the harsh conditions. A slow and steady march will bring you to Gorakshep, and a little ahead, the Everest Base Camp, which is marked by the many prayer flags put up there.

Day 10: Gorakshep to Kalapathar
Rising early has its perks and though the climb to Kalapathar will test your abilities due to the high altitude, you will certainly be rewarded as the sun comes up right behind Everest. And we can assure you there are few sights as beautiful as the highest point on earth!

Day 11: Goraksep to Pheriche
After descending from Kala Patthar it becomes very simple, though you have to be careful about the decline. We will need another 3 hours to reach Lobuche (4940m). Total trek time will be 7 hours max with only one steep incline and rest simple and easy trek.
It will be about 6 to 7 hours of easy declining trekking.
You will be passing through the amazing Himalayan ranges.

If you are planning to go to the Himalayas then I would recommend to go to the everest camp trek. It is a total value of money. I and my friends planned for a 12 day long trip to this place. the currency of Nepal is comparitively cheaper than India so everything was very cheap here. the hotel rooms and the food was affordable. As we go higher the altitude though the price increased but it was quite a good trip. The best time to go is in the months of March to May and September and October. Winter is not prefered to go as the trails become very slippery.
