You begin your trek from Lukla following a gentle climb up the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Koshi River. Nupla (5885m) which can be seen in the distance on the opposite bank is a peak atop the Kongde Ridge. You descend a mountainside path that merges into your route to Everest, with views to a valley to your right; and at its far end, Kusum Kang (6367m.)

 

Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m.) takes approximately five hours. Namche Bazaar (3440m) is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges and opens out only where it faces the Bhote Koshi.

A day for rest at Namche Bazaar (3440m.) for acclimatization. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day for acclimatization to the high altitude before heading off towards Tyangboche. For acclimatization you walk up to Khumjung where you can visit a monastery and enjoy the splendid views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Tawche, and Kwangde and so on.

Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Tyangboche to Dingboche (4260m.) takes approximately five hours. Dingboche is a beautiful patchwork of fields enclosed by stone walls protecting the crops of barley, buckwheat and potatoes from the cold winds and grazing animals.

 

Stay overnight at lodge.

The onward journey leads north for up to 50-minutes until you come to a mani-prayer Stupa and then takes a downward path to Pheriche village. Today's walk offers views of Mt.Tawache, Ama Dablam and to the north-Pokalde (5741m), Kongma-tse (5820m) and the great wall of Nuptse. After a two hours walk, the trail from Pheriche joins near Dugla (4595m) before a small wooden bridge over the river of the Khumbu glacier.

 

Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Lobuche to Everest Base Camp (5486m.) via Gorakshep (5180m.) takes about seven hours.

Gorakshep is the location of the original Everest Base Camp with the new camp being further up the valley. Now the trail winds through a rocky path and the Khumbu glacier. The views of Nuptse, Lho-La and Khumbutse appear in front of you.

    EBC 11 Days Trek – September, 2013

    We drive back this morning, from 11-day EBC Trek. The Trek was easy but it was made convenient because we were provided with a good guide, Ratna, and reliable porters. In every stop we made the accommodation were excellent.
     
    I hope your company will continue to provide challenging but pleasant experiences of trekking.

    Our Second Trip To Nepal From Same Company

    Liz and I have just finished our second trip with Everest Base Camp. Both trips have been fantastic. The team of both porters and guides are both professional and wonderful people. 
     
    Our guide was like a member of our family and he has caused two vegetables to seek out Buffalo whenever we go! 
     
    We were very lucky to select this company. We will be back! 
     
    Thanks
