Everest Base Camp Trek
- group size
The most well-known trekking route in the world is the Everest Base Camp Trek, and everyone has heard of Mount Everest. Both the ascent and the descent of the mountain, mountaineers use the base camps, which are basic tents at the foot of Mount Everest.
The popularity of the Everest Base Camp trek is due to this.
Everest is only one of the breathtaking sights throughout the EBC climb. Reaching the base of the world’s tallest mountain is an incredible feat that is worth the effort. The Everest base camp trek is not far from Kathmandu. 5,364 meters above sea level, in the Khumbu Region, Everest Base Camp approximately 200–300 kilometers from Kathmandu.
It is being able to boast that you have been to the world’s tallest mountain. In addition, the Solu (down to Lukla) and Khumbu (up to Lukla) regions, where Mt. Everest and its accompanying other many peaks exist, provide stunning landscapes and outgoing Sherpa inhabitants. With snow-capped peaks rising above the Khumbu glacier and a pleasant climb to Everest Base Camp, the sunrise vista from Kalapathar’s 5,550-meter summit of Mount Everest is like looking into a mirror. The Khumbu Glacier is present along the last leg of the route to one of the Everest Base Camps.
The EBC Trek is easily accessible by foot and is one of the significant locations to see at least once in your lifetime. Everest hiking is noted for its friendly Sherpa inhabitants, vibrant festivals, and Buddhists.
And monasteries with vibrant prayer flags along the hiking route to Everest base camp. Everest Base Camp is located within Sagarmatha National Park. The Khumbu area includes the Everest region. Also, it was located in Sagarmatha National Park, a place of international significance.
Sagarmatha is a beautiful region with majestic mountains, glaciers, and deep valleys, where Mount Everest lies. The snow leopard and the smaller panda are just two of the endangered creatures that call the area home. Because of the Sherpas’ presence there and their unique culture, this place is more alluring.
Because Mount Everest, at 8848.86 meters is famous as Sagarmatha in Nepal. The Nepalese camp in the Khumbu region, often known as Everest Base Camp, is where this famous hike ends. The inhabitants of the Khumbu area are well-known climbers. The expedition crew will keep an eye on things throughout this testing phase in March, April, and May to reach the summit of the planet. And many hikers travel to Nepal for vacations, hiking in the Everest region.
It is best to visit Everest Base Camp on either side of the monsoon season. It lasts from late May to mid-September. The main trekking seasons are from the end of September to the beginning of November. And from February to May, when Base Camp temperatures can drop as low as -6°C and conditions are often stable. Normally, it takes 12–14 days of strenuous hiking to cover the 130-kilometer (80-mile) distance from Lukla. Therefore, even on your “rest days,” you must walk!

12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek
12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek, Chandra was my personal guide during the 12-day Everest Base Camp Trek in December 2008. I have done many customized tours around the world (Andes, Himalaya). But this is definitely one of the best I have ever experienced. The views and sunsets are awesome. Chandra did an awesome job of listening to my needs and organizing the ideal trip for me.
A very helpful intelligent and kind guide and good company as well! Goes out of his way to assist you in which way he can. I managed to sort out a new camera for myself during (!) the Mount Everest Base Camp trek as mine had broken down. Adventure of a lifetime!

Awesome Everest Base Camp Trek
Awesome Everest Base Camp Trek, I cannot tell how happy I was with Himalaya Guide Nepal services. I received this during my October 2016 ‘expedition’ to Everest Base Camp. The company went far and beyond what I needed. Full comprehensive and honest service – very happy and satisfied. And as it is sometimes difficult to decide to whom to entrust ourselves. So, they even organized my very pleasant one-day tour of Kathmandu, with a driver and tour guide. I do thank Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. for making my experience of going to Mt. Everest Base Camp so pleasant and memorable. Frank – Melbourne, Australia.

13 Days Everest Base Camp Trek
13 days Everest Base Camp Trek. We made a spur-of-the-moment decision to do this trek. So, contacted Chandra to see if it was possible at such short notice. He responded immediately, in no time at all had everything organized for us, and a week later. We arrived in Kathmandu for our preparation day. This was our second visit to Nepal – last year we trekked the Annapurna Circuit with the same company. Dinesh (Chandra’s younger brother) was our guide. And he arranged for a helper (Suraz) from Lukla who carried our packs.
The trek was very challenging, with the altitude and cold conditions for us. But we had amazing weather and the scenery was spectacular beyond belief. Dinesh is an exceptionally competent guide. Whom we found very caring with a quiet sense of humor. His English is very good which enabled some good discussions regarding Nepalese culture and points of interest. I have no hesitation in recommending this company for trekking in Nepal. And we certainly intend to visit again.
Trekking to the base camp of Mt. Everest was beautiful
Trekking to the base camp of Mt. Everest was beautiful. I spent d days but all of the sights are an awesome and kind guide. It is an unforgettable memory for me. Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. Trekking company is the best one in Nepal for your trekking and other activities and the guide was the best as well.Thank you for everything.

Everest Base Camp Trek
After having trekked the Annapurna circuit last year, EBC remained on our list to do. We only decided to do this at very short notice. And sent a tentative inquiry to Chandra to see if it was possible. Within 24 hours everything was organized and off we went. While we had some idea of the demands of trekking in Nepal after Annapurna. EBC is in a completely different league as far as physically challenged. It was definitely a lot harder, given both a prolonged period at higher altitudes. And colder temperatures morning and evening to contend with. On the other side, we had magnificent weather with blue skies every day. So November is definitely a good time to do this trek.
The views were simply stunning. Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, etc. Our guide Dinesh was fantastic, taking care of all the details and looking after us really well. He picked great accommodation for getting us the best rooms in the lodges. Every night he cut up some fresh Jomson apples for us for dessert! The flight into Lukla was amazing and a real highlight. The walk and acclimatization days were all well-planned and most enjoyable. During the day with the sun out, it was very warm. In addition to our guide, we had a helper (Surat)to carry our gear, which I recommend. You don’t have to be super fit to do this walk provide you don’t overstress yourself. I took Diamox (125mg) morning and evening and that helped prevent any symptoms of altitude sickness, which I suffered the year before on Annapurna, where I didn’t take this drug.
Interestingly enough we met a Canadian Neurologist who was also taking Diamox. So, that in my mind click to the fact I was doing the right thing. Chandra and his team at Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt Limited are great to deal with and would heartily recommend them to anyone. Family-friendly and professional they cover all the basics. Our next trip is to Pokhara and their village.

Everest Base Camp Trek – April 2018
Everest Base Camp Trek April 2018. My friend and I recently returned from EBC on a trek organized by Chandra at Himalaya Guide Nepal and I would have to say that it was one of the best trips of my life.
Right from the start when I contacted him via email Chandra was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any concerns or questions we had.
When we arrived (very late) in Kathmandu, representatives were waiting for us at the airport and ferried us to our hotel with no hassle, before our sightseeing trip around Kathmandu the next day. It was a very nice, but long, day but our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable.
Everest Base Camp Trek April 2018, Then the trek itself. It goes without saying that the scenery is unbelievable, but what else can I say except it was amazing? Our guide Nurbu and porter Lakpa took care of absolutely everything. And made us feel very welcome throughout the whole 12 days. Nurbu was extremely informative, very patient (especially with my friend, who was rather slow). With most of all great fun to be with. We looked forward to his nightly briefing with eager anticipation!
Everything ran like clockwork, with breaks, meal times, and teahouses seamlessly organized. So, that we never had to worry about a thing the whole trek.
The only problem we had was with flights in and out of Lukla (we ended up paying extra for helicopter trips due to time constraints). But even then Chandra organized a full refund for our canceled plane flights with no questions asked.
Then when we got back to Katmandu, Chandra took care of us once more, checking to see if we were ok and taking us for a celebration dinner.
What made it more special were the little touches, the fresh fruit after dinner each night. The plaque was presented to us upon completion and the silk scarf was given to us. We left for the airport after an exhausting, but highly enjoyable 15-day trip.
It was a superb experience. So, I would highly recommend Himalaya Guide Nepal to anyone wishing to trek the EBC route.
