Everest Base Camp Trek
1250

Overview

Everest base camp trekking takes you to the height of 5364m which is high enough to be a challenging. Everest base camp is normally done in 12 days of time frame with flight from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. Our 15 days EBC itinerary is included of the day tours of Kathmandu valley as well. But this rapid Everest Base Camp trekking is more of achieving goal of getting to the mighty Everest Base Camp. We have designed this short base camp trekking package to fit your short holiday package. In this package there is no rest day and nothing to acclimatize in the middle, so it is not fit for the first timer in the height above 4000m. As Everest has quite different landscape and weather is dramatic in the region you will be having great risk doing this trekking.

One of the most popular trek in the world, Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is definitely the experience of a lifetime.If you don’t have time for classic Everest Base Camp trek or simply don’t want to spend 15 days on the trail, then this trek is for you !!!!This trek is a short version of the trail which can be done in 10 days.10 days Everest Base Camp trek is an excellent alternative to the full Everest Base Camp trek. I recommend this route for those who lack the time to complete the longer trek or who prefer not to camp.With a beautiful scenery, wide variety of flora and fauna on display and visit to the base camp of world’s highest peak Mt. Everest, you’ll get to enjoy all the best bits of the Everest Base Camp trial within 10 days.This trek itinerary allows you to see most of the same things that you can see on a regular EBC trek but in just 10 days.

On the trail, each day after a few hour steep walk upwards and downwards you’ll get the wonderful moments.But keep in mind that, this short 10 days itinerary doesn’t include Kathmandu arrival, departure, and acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar. So if you’re physically fit it might be no problem to do this trek rapidly.But if you prefer to do with one extra day acclimatization en trek route and one free day in Kathmandu after or before the trek, then you can also choose Everest Base Camp Trekking (Rapid).

Enjoy the natural beauties and the scenic views of this easy and fast trek !!You’ll start and end your trekking journey from Lukla on the way exploring different landscapes and enjoying the stunning picture of Everest Base Camp to Kala Patthar from where you’ll get the best view of Mt. Everest! 10 days Everest Base Camp trek is a great option to explore and experience the most popular trek in a world and visit Everest region!

  1. Everest Base Camp Trek
    This is a rather late submission as I was in Nepal last March/April of 2017, however I wanted to be sure to tell all about my experience. There were five of us in our group and right from the beginning our communication with Nepal Eco Adventure was fabulous. Chhatra was always quick to reply and helped us with any questions or concerns that the five of us had. Our pick up from the airport was well organized and our tour in Kathmandu was great. Our flight to Lukla was thrilling and our climbing group (guides and porters) was very friendly. Our Guide was Ram, and our assistant guides were Dahna and Pushda . They were always smiling and full of encouragement. The Tea Huts were well organized with plenty of choices of food and drink. I unfortunately was not feeling well before we left Kathmandu but tried to complete the whole hike. I was not able to and contacted my insurance company Chhatra immediately. He helped orchestrate a quick helicopter ride to Kathmandu hospital, in which I stayed for three days. He was kind enough to drive across the busy city to visit me in the hospital as well. We were very fortunate to have such great support. I will be going back to Nepal in 2020 to complete the trek, and I wouldn't consider going through any other company other that Nepal Eco Adventure. I would highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventure and their crew of fantastic guides!
  2. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Eco Adventure did an excellent job from start to finish ensuring we had a great experience in the mountains. Our guide Keshab and his crew was attentive and professional ensuring we had 100% success rate completing the entire trek. We find their service trustworthy and efficient. Will definitely be using them again in my next adventure holiday in Nepal.
  3. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Without a doubt, I will recommend this company to those who want to come, from Chile and the rest of the world, to Nepal and enjoy the wonders of an unforgettable trekking through the Himalayas, coupled with dreamy landscapes and pure Nepalese hospitality. Nepal Eco Adventure is an example of professionalism, concern and seriousness in their work. My most sincere thanks to Chhatra, the guide Nir, his assistant Lakpa, the porters and all those who work in this company, who made every effort to make this trip a dream come true. I take this space to give all my recognition and gratitude to Nir, who always guided and supported me, both physically and mentally, to fulfill my desire to know Everest and reach his base camp. I will return and surely I will trust you with closed eyes. Best regards. Translated from Spanish
  4. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I recently achieved a lifelong goal of hiking the Everest Base Camp trek, 9 months of planning and preparation, including sourcing a reputable ethical company to get us there and back, we settled on Nepal Eco Adventures and don't regret this decision.Having checked reviews on trip adviser before selecting Eco Adventures I am happy to say they lived up to expectations. I travelled with a friend and went in a small group of 6 lead by Jiba Sherpa and Ang Kaji, our fun happy porter guides. They were relaxed, attentive and nothing was ever too much trouble. I had heard stories of the conditions along the trek generally being dirty, with accommodations basic and freezing; and the food starting off average and becoming nothing but bland towards the top but I was absolutely amazed at both the accommodations and food. Given everything is carted up the mountain on the back of a donkey yak or porter is a wonder how they achieve what they do, a good selection of food including fresh vegetables and the ever reliable and tasty Dahl bhat, eggs for protein, and even apple and Mars bar pies! I was also happily surprised to see the region not as rubbish riddled as I was lead to believe, it appears eco tourism and environmental impacts are gaining ground. I hope trek companies continue to lead this change, to see a beautiful region of the world remain so for the future. Thanks Eco Adventures for a fantastic adventure and realisation of a dream. A huge thanks particularly to Jiba and Kaji for making the adventure so much fun!
  5. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Nepal Eco Adventure is a very good travel company, from the beginning to end, everything is smooth and clear. They also have the best mountain guides and porters provided. Thanks to their very experienced and exceed excellent mountain guide Kumar Jirel and porter Pasang, I was able to climb Gokyo Ri, Kala Pather, survive difficult Chola Pass and finish the 22days from Jiri to Everest Base Camp trekking with no injuries or sickness, they really take good care of me and my husband, and made the most memorable trekking vacation for us. To me, the most rewarding thing for the whole trip is our mountain guide Kumar Jirel and porter Pasang have became our families and very good friends❤. Highly recommend this company and mountain guide Kumar to everyone trekking in Nepal.
  6. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Our 12-day trek to EBC st the end of April was just the experience we wanted. Our guides, Keshab and Lakpa (and Bemol until he split off with two in our group to Cho La) were always thoughtful of our comfort and safety. At every guesthouse, Keshab made sure I had an extra blanket. Lakpa was always ready with a hot cup of milk coffee in the morning. Lakpa led us with a good pace to get us acclimated and to the top, and Keshab set a pace for those who wanted to walk slower. They knew all the names of incredible peaks around us as we trekked, and through conversations with them we gained insight into local culture. They were very professional, but by the end we felt as though they were more than our professional guides — they were our friends. The porters, too, took great care with our duffel bags provided by Nepal Eco. Our duffels were always waiting for us at the door of our next guesthouse. We highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventure.
  7. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I took this trip with my brother and a friend, we decided 2 months in advance and started enquiring about our options. We sent emails to couple of tour operators, Chhatra was the first one to respond with a very clear itinerary and what to expect of their service. It is well documented in their web-site also. I had another friend who took this trip with his friends and he had very positive reviews about Chhatra and his group. It wasn't a hard decision for us and shouldn't be for anyone who is looking to do any trekking in Himalayas. We were very well taken care of during the trip, Ram was the best guide we could have asked for and Askumar and Ratna as porters were very accommodating and friendly. They even entertained us with their local songs at times. Chhatra and his troupe has very good understanding of local customs, weather and culture. Ram even worked with tea house management at different places to customize our food needs. Weather is very finicky in Himalayas, we had a situation in Lukla when all flights were cancelled due to bad weather. Chhatra arranged for a helicopter to transport us to Kathmandu for a nominal fee so that we didn't have to re-schedule our international flights. All in all a great experience, if I plan on doing another trek in Himalayas I am not looking for any place else to choose my tour operator.
  8. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Myself and two others did a 17 day trek to Everest Base Camp along with two of the three passes of the "3 Passes trek" (Cho-la and Renjo-la). The trek itself was absolutely amazing (one that anyone who enjoys getting out in the wilderness should definitely consider doing this in their lifetime). I am very satisfied that I booked this through Nepal Eco Adventure. The owner - Chhatra - is a wonderful human being. Throughout my entire time in Nepal (one month) I visited Chhatra multiple times, choosing to use him for other adventures (Chitwan, Pokhara) after completing the trek. I'll try and summarize the reasons I would recommend Nepal Eco Adventure to others: Safety: Chhatra was always prompt in replying to any emails I sent him and incredibly helpful with all my questions and concerns. Chhatra connected us with a guide who has extensive knowledge of Sagarmatha National Park (has summited 6000m+ peaks, 16 years experience guiding, etc.) and provided an Blood-Oxygen Saturation Meter for us to help alleviate any concerns we had with AMS or our safety in general. I always felt that we were safe throughout the trek. Hospitality: Chhatra picked me up/dropped me off from the airport (saving me from the throngs of eager taxi drivers when I arrived around midnight) and ensured I got checked into my hotel after hours. Whenever I visited his office, he always had time to talk with me about my questions, experiences about the places I visited/planned to visit in Nepal, offering suggestions and recommendations. His english is very good and it was quite easy to have a good conversation with him. He was always in a great mood. He also offered some nice extras - a marigold "lei" upon arrival, warm tea whenever visiting his office, a EBC trekking certificate and kata. Value: I felt that the trek was of good value. The itinerary was easily modified to have a couple of additional days added to it, to allow for extra acclimatization (should we need it), we had a guide who had an blood-oxygen saturation meter and a first aid kit and a wealth of guiding and mountain experience, who also spoke decent english (we had no major issues communicating with him). Service: When I wanted to go to see Chitwan National Park, Chhatra booked me into a resort, covered all the details for travel (booked the bus, arranged the pickup on the other end), making everything easy for someone who hadn't yet figured travel within the country yet. Local: This is a small, family owned and run, local company. Based out of Kathmandu, you are directly contributing to the local economy. I definitely want to come back to Nepal and do more trekking. I cannot think of any reason why I would choose any other company than Nepal Eco Adventure. Chhatra, if you're reading this: Thank you for always answering my emails and questions. It was great to meet you.

FAQs

What do I need to expect about the Temperature, meal, and drinking water, insurance, walking hours during the trek, shower ?

“Temperature”

Spring – February to mid June

Temperature during this season is 15°C as lowest and with a maximum of 25°C during sunny days, Minimum of -15°C in the morning and at night normally for areas above 4000 meters.

Monsoon – End of June to Mid-September

Temperature during this season is max 25°C in the sunny days and a minimum -15°C in the morning and night.

Autumn – mid September to Mid December

Temperature during the fall is 15°C with a maximum temp of 20°C during sunny days and a minimum of 05°C in the morning and at night.

Winter – December to February

Temperature during the winter is freezing cold during the morning and the nights to -08°C but the temperature during the sunny day might be 10°C.

Apart from the above given temperature, Temperature during the trekking varies from region to region, season to season and itinerary to itinerary. To be precise you can calculate the range of the temperature corresponding with the altitude increase. Temperatures illustrated above are for the normal condition but it might be changeable with the special weather condition. Regarding the trekking regions Everest trekking region is supposed to have lower temperature as it starts from Lukla normally. But for the trekking to Annapurna temperature at the base camp and the Thorong-La pass might be to the minimum as illustrated above, but the lower regions of the same trail has hot weather and crazy hot if it is sunny day.

“Meal”

Nepal Eco Adventure provides meals three times per day; you choose the food from the menu. Menu at the tea house are with varieties of food and you can choose among them. Since you have to be hygienic with eating habit to make sure your trekking is safe and sound, you can ask for the suggestion from our guides. They will help you to accept and avoid the item of the food you see in the menu of the restaurant in the trekking trail.

“Drinking water”

Drinking and walking must be sound and balance during the activity like trekking, we suggest you to drink as more as you can while you are in the trekking. Most of the tea houses and restaurant in every trekking trail has facility of bottled water or purified water. But you need to buy and it might cost from $1 to $4; as the price of everything goes on increasing with increase in the height. Even if you don’t want to buy the water; there are abundant sources of water on the trail and tea houses where you can fill up your bottles and use water purification tablets, SteriPen, Life-straw, iodine, water filters. Make sure you have enough of these purification tablets for 5L of water per day.

We do not recommend you to buy bottled water during the trek as water is expensive and even if it is cheap; this trend will increase the trash of empty bottles. And being Nepal Eco Adventure we try our best to minimize harm to the nature and using water purification technique instead of bottled water helps a lot keeping Eco-friendly trekking.

“Insurance”

As you already spend money for your beautiful holiday package with us, why not to increase the amount a bit to safeguard while traveling? Nepal Eco Adventure tries best effort to make sure you are safe in our hands but as said planning is to be done for the worst situation, we suggest you to be insured before traveling. Even we ask a copy of your travel insurance during booking of your trip. Don’t take RISK while traveling and make sure you are safe from all the prospective and hence we suggest you to be in good hands. Looking at the company used by our guest we suggest you following insurance companies from all over the world. Make sure you choose one fits you. Below are the suggestions :

“Walking hours during trek”

Normally the itineraries we provide you are designs to walk in the reasonable pace for 5-7 hours a day. But the geography of the trail and the fitness level of the trekker always change this expected walking hour. Walking downhill is much easier in the high altitude and always takes half of the time for same distance of uphill walking in the Himalaya. Walking above the height of 4000m is always tough and your pace will be slower than expected.

“Shower”

Trekking gives you sweating and if you don’t shower with sweaty body, might be uneasy. But showering is not a big problem even in the Himalaya as every tea house has hot/cold shower. You need to pay for the hot shower and cold showers are normally free. But we suggest you to have less number of showers as possible since you might get cold. Avoid shower in the cold place and avoid being sick during your trekking.
