EBC Trek Overview:
Upon your arrival at Kathmandu, you’ll be received by one of our representative & transfer to one of the deluxe hotel in Thamel. The next day your journey starts with a 4-hour drive to Ramechhap from Kathmandu.
Why should we go to Ramechhap airport?
Normally, all Lukla flights would operate from Kathmandu airport. But due to very high air traffic in Kathmandu airport and unpredictable weather of Lukla, domestic airlines cannot get flight schedules properly from Kathmandu. That is why we should go to Ramechhap airport to catch a flight to Lukla. Nepal domestic airline company operates Lukla flight from Ramechhap too.
Ramechhap airport is the only domestic airport there and this is just an alternative airport of Kathmandu domestic airport. This airport will be busy only on tourist season (Mid- March to May and October to November).
The weather in Lukla is clear in the morning time. So, all the domestic airline company flies to Lukla early in the morning. You have to be there at least an hour before your flight. It is very rush and sometimes misses the flight due to road traffic from Kathmandu to Ramechhap if you drive the same day. That is why we bring you to Ramechhap one day before your flight to Lukla.
On your third day, you’ll fly to Lukla from Ramechhap with a scenic view on the way. It will take 25mins to reach Lukla by plane.
As soon as you land at the world’s highest, Lukla airport, you will be welcomed by the cool breeze of Himalayas. From here the journey kicks off by trekking to Phakding from Lukla which is just a 3-hour walk.

The next day, you’ll trek to the beautiful Sherpa village, Namche Bazar, also known as the capital of the Khumbu region. It is situated on crescent-shaped mountain slopes providing a stunning view of mountains across the valley. On your 5th day, you’ll stay in Namche for rest & acclimatization.
Your trek continuous to Dingboche passing through rocky trails, terraced field, rhododendron forest, rivers & bridges along with the irresistible mountain views. You will have a rest day here at Dingboche too. On your 8th day as a rest day, you’ll hike to the popular Nangkartshang Peak (5,083m/16,667ft) for acclimatization. Hiking to this peak will help your body to adjust the higher altitude.
You will then trek to Lobuche, & the very next day you’ll head to your main destination Everest Base Camp which will take 5-6 hours. After successfully reaching the base camp you’ll then trek back to Gorekshep for overnight stay.
Gorekshep is the last outpost before reaching Everest Base Camp. There are very few numbers of teahouses in this region. And from Gorakshep on your 11th day, you will hike to the highest point on this trek which is Kalapatthar. This is an optional hike that provides you the best view of Mt. Everest & other peaks.
From here, you will follow the same route to head back to Namche Bazar and then Lukla. On the 14th day, you will departure from Lukla and return back to Kathmandu after a wonderful journey.

What is the best time to do Everest Base Camp trek?
The best time for EBC trek would be during Autumn & Spring which is also a peak season. However, it depends upon the kind of experience you are seeking. With professional guidance, it is possible to do this trek throughout the year.
Autumn & Spring season provides you the best mountain scenery with a mild temperature, perfect weather & clear blue skies. If you are going in Spring you can enjoy the bewitching nature with flowers blooming everywhere especially rhododendron forest. A sight that will take away your breath.
However, the downside during this period of time is a very busy trail. Can you imagine the trail with thousands of trekkers on a daily basis along with yaks & mules blocking the way?
On top of that finding, good accommodation will be a headache too, until & unless you book with a travel agency like us. Because we always reserve the hotel/lodges in time for customers.
