Everest. And more than 35,000 tourists turn into the trekkers after trekking in this heavenly place. Moreover, Everest Base Camp is also known as EBC in short form.

Likewise, the Everest Base Camp elevation 5,364m is the reason that makes it the world’s highest base camp on Earth for trekking. And when trekking to Everest Base Camp, you will feel the different aura, excitement and breathtaking experience in your life also.

Combined with an exploration of the culture & traditions of the Sherpa family, Everest Base Camp trek can be an educational type also. You can learn the lifestyles of Sherpa who are the ethnic groups that remained till today. That is why the EBC trek is also useful for kids who can learn new things. However, there is an age limitation for EBC trek also that needs to be looked at.

In my viewpoint, Mount Everest Base Camp trek is not only about walking or struggling for days. It’s a path that shows you how beautiful nature can be, how adventure can change your life and how it feels to be in the top of the world at the altitude of 5,364m.

To be exact, Everest Base Camp trek is the package of surprises, challenges, and lots of education. And from the viewpoint of 35,000 tourists that visit Everest Base Camp in a year; I want to recommend you to do this EBC trek once in a lifetime.

How does your Everest Base Camp trek Starts?

After your arrival in Nepal or the capital city Kathmandu, you will have a one-day rest here. If you don’t know how you can get the visa of Nepal then look below.

After the first day in Kathmandu, the EBC trek will start with a short and scenic flight to Lukla-2,800m from Kathmandu-1,335m on the second day. And upon landing in Lukla airport, you will trek to Phakding which is just a 3hour walk.

Lukla is also known for its dangerous airport in the world.

See the related article: Luka Airport

On the 3rd day, you will pass Chaurikharka, Thado Koshi, Ghat, Tok Tok, Monjo, Jorsalle, Sherpa villages to reach Namche Bazar. It’s only 6 hours of turtle walk from Phakding to Namche Bazar with an altitude of 3,440m. Before arriving at Namche Bazar, you will encounter some Yak caravans too. At that time, please lean on the sidewall and let the Yaks pass to be safe.

Namche Bazar elevation is 3,440m above from the sea level. Similarly, Namche Bazar is the most popular and beautiful place as an entrance of Mount Everest for all trekkers or travelers. It has many tourist standard guest houses, lodges, hotels, restaurants, pubs, shopping centers, trekking, and climbing gears shops. Banks, police station, military base, public school, health post are also here. From here, you can see the highest peaks including Mount Everest 8,848m, Lhotse 8,516m, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Khumbila, Kusum Himal, Kongde, and others many more from here.

Note: You will have an acclimatization day at Namche Bazar.

Tyangboche or Tengboche is another destination after Namche Bazar where you can see one of the oldest monasteries and unique architecture. This place is mostly influenced by Tibetan culture and architecture. You can visit this monastery and listen to morning prayers of Buddhists also. It is also believed to heal the soul of people with peace who listen to the enchants. Similarly, killing an animal is illegal here for both tourists and locals. Therefore, we recommend you not to eat any meats while Everest Base Camp trek. Because the meats are not fresh and it will only hamper your health.

From Tengboche, you will trek to Dingboche on the 6th day and Lobuche on the 8th day. This trail is a little bit hard because you will be already in 4,910m. The tea houses available in this part is little basic. Similarly, oxygen level is also low in this area. That is why walk slowly to reduce any heavy breathing while trekking in the Everest Base Camp trail.

Finally, on the 9th day, you will trek to Everest Base Camp and return Gorakshep in the same day. Due to limited tea houses in Gorakshep, it’s recommended to head back early after finishing your work in EBC. Similarly, hire a guide to help you with accommodations, foods and health safety while trekking in Everest Base Camp. Because taking a guide & porter with you can be very helpful.

At last, it will only take 4 days to return from Gorakshep to Kathmandu. It means that Everest Base Camp trek will be completed within 14 days. However, trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp can be difficult if you don’t follow some rules.
