Welcome to Budget Trekking

Everest Base Camp (14 Days)



The most desired destination for trekking in Nepal is undisputedly the Everest Base Camp.It offers almost everything that an adventurer would wish to indulge in and no doubt on the first place being able to get a glance of the highest peak in the world. It is a moment of pride to share with friends and families over the glass of beer you are having in your local club or over the dinner table. Not everyone get to travel thousands of miles away and walk 5000 meters high above the sea level to just see the mountain which has been the talk of adventurers for centuries.

Everest base camp trek initiates on foot from Tenzing Hillary Airport which is commonly known as Lukla airport. This trek straight up takes you to the base camp and back to Lukla but introduces to the vast terrain within a week. Furthermore, the trek introduces you with the Sherpa culture, their way of life and cuisine. Sherpa people are the descendants of Tibeto Burman race and have a unique way of lifestyle. Everest is heavily inhabited by the Sherpa people.

Two third of the Everest base camp trek fall in the Sagarmatha National park, which is a protected area and now a world UNESCO world heritage site. Majority of the trekkers spot Himalayan tahr which is a rare species of animal found on the mountains. On the other hand, spotting some rare species of birds is as well a common aspect. Overall this trek is splendid and you would get opportunity to indulge in a whole lot thing than just the tallest himalayas in the country.

We take rest on this day to acclimatize with high altitude and an excellent day to explore Namche, its culture and the periphery. Namche is interesting town which has terrace like settlement and looks like an amphitheatre. This is the most happening and biggest town along the trail. The idea is to remain active during the day and not fall asleep, which is why we hike to Syngboche airport; one of the high altitude, non commercial air strip. We also take the opportunity to visit Khunde and Khumjung where we see the school built by Sir. Edmund Hillary. This village is famous for the monastery which claims to hold the Yeti skull.

We trek around 400m to Nangkartshang Gompa, a viewpoint which offers slightly different angled views for mountains in Everest region and even East Makalu (8463m). After climbing up to see the mountains we head back to have our lunch and further do photography, play card games or invent our games to spend the day.

Activities: Hiking, Briefing

It is very important to be careful on this day as we may feel the signs of AMS (acute mountain Sickness) but cautiously we head towards Gorak Shep. initially we follow the narrow gap between glacier moraine and the mountain. We make a very small but difficult climb to more technically difficult moraine with the first sighting to Gorakshep. Gorakshep 5180 m which is at the base of Kalapatthar 5545m, is a flat land and a sand basin, where we have our lunch. It is recommended to visit Kala Patthar on this day to view Himalayas of Everest region. Many people prefer Kala Patthar in the morning but it is not recommended due to the ruined view from sunrise behind the Everest. We either trek to Everest base camp or Kala Patthar and trek back to Gorakshep and spend the night.

Day 11
Gorakshep – Pheriche 200m ascent, descent 700+m

Places Visited: Pheriche Gorak shep

We make a very nominal ascent of 200m this day but is very technical and takes almost 3 hours. We start our trek early at around 6 am to our destination which is a semi-permanent village made out of bright dome tents and boulder covered by prayer flags. Everest base camp is the hub of mountaineers who are waiting for green signal to climb further up, the view of the mountains are spectacular but Everest is not visible due to the towering mountains upfront.

Day 13
Namche – Lukla Ascent 950m, descend 250m

Places Visited: Namche Tenzing-Hillary Airport (Lukla)

Activities: Hiking, Briefing

Although we start early and it is all descend from Namche to lukla, it is claimed to be the hardest downhill in the entire Everest base camp route. The remorseless incline makes it difficult on the knees but there is always an option to slow down the pace and stroll easy. It’s a flat trail from Benkar to Phakding and Lukla and very easy for the knees. It’s the final day in Everest region where we reconfirm our flights and enjoy the party like atmosphere amongst the trekker who has finished their trek.

Reviews from our gratified travellers


Leah Malsom Leah Malsom

Literally fall in love with Nepal in this Everest Region Trek

My friend and I spent 12 days in January 2016 trekking with Uzol through the Everest region. The trip completely surpassed our expectations--Uzol went above and beyond to help us learn about, understand, and fall in love with Nepal. His knowledge of and love for Nepal is enough of a reason to trek with him, but his friendliness and hospitality seals the deal! He helped us bargain for equipment before leaving for our trek and he booked us bus tickets to Pokhara after the trek had ended--he acted not just as our guide, but as a close friend. Wevte was equally as hospitable and kind, highly recommend spending some nights in Kathmandu at their hostel (Dormitory Nepal) and hanging out with their staff. Already looking forward to returning to Nepal and completing another trek with Uzol and Wonderful Everest View Treks!

I had the luck of staying in Dormitory Nepal because I got to know Uzol and Samer and an amazing group how did the Everest Base Camp together with me. 14 very good days of trekking and the best view of Everest from Kala Patthar.

Had an amazing experience trekking both the Annapurna Scanutary and the Everest Base Camp routes!! The treks itself is an amazing experience and the views of the mountains are absolutely surreal! Booking with Wonderful Everest View Treks & Expedition couldn't have been any easier, they made the process extremely easy and the prices were the lowest that we found in Katmandu! We had everything included (guide, porter, meals, tea houses, rented jackets + sleeping bags). Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the mountains, villages, and culture so my friend and I learned a lot, which we wouldn't have known otherwise! Also he was very knowledgeable about safety protocols, which I'm extremely thankful for. My friend experienced severe acute mountain sickness and our guide knew exactly what to do, remained calm, and kept both of us in the loop about the next steps/protocols. He made this process very stress-free in the mountains. I would definitely book with Wonderful Everest View Treks and Expedition again! Visited October 2014
