Overview

Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days  journey Follow the footsteps of legends to the foot of world’s highest peak: a true symbol of challenge and adventure. Everest’s daunting peak is so high that trekking to its base camp is itself an adrenaline pump. Many trekkers refer this journey as “the step to heaven”; every twist and turn on a trail provides new photographic opportunities.

 

The classic  Everest Base Camp Trek ( EBC Trek)  14 days starts and ends in Kathmandu. A pre-trip discussion in Kathmandu is followed by a short trans-Himalayan flight to Lukla – the actual starting point of trek. Spend several days walking around Gumbas, billowing prayer flags, magical forest and imposing snowy peaks; and evenings in local tea houses offering warm hospitality and delicious local cuisine.

 

14 days Everest Base Camp Trekking itinerary is designed to minimize AMS risk by limiting daily gain in altitude and scheduling acclimatization period. We will acclimatize at Namche Bazaar: explore town and hike to Khumjung for traditional view of Sherpa culture.

 

Further hike to the hilltop village of Tengboche and explore the monastery nestled against the backdrop of Ama Dablam. Continue through Pangboche to Dingboche; from here, the temperature drops significantly and tree line gives way to alpine scrub; then rock and snow. After a night at Lobuche, hike to Gorkashep (the highest settlement) for lunch and walk along the glacier to the Base Camp. Gaze the fabled Khumbu Ice Fall; ancient Khumbu glacier and jagged peaks from Base Camp.

 

A per-sunrise climb to Kalapatthar ensures an unobstructed view of Everest’s windblown summit, the South Col, Nuptse and
the lower glacier.The easier four days downhill hike uses an alternative lower route and overnight in different villages.

 

Highlights of 14 Days  Everest Base Camp Trek

  • An early morning adrenaline flight from  Kathmandu to the well-famed Lukla Airport.
  • Panoramic view of the Mahalangur Himalayan range
  • Experience the ancient Sherpa culture and their lifestyle
  • Walkthrough dense forest and lush vegetation
  • Beautiful view of the incredible valleys surrounded by the astounding Himalayas
  • Most beautiful sunrise view from Kalapatthar
  • A clear sky full of stars at night
  • Experience calming Buddhist chanting at the infamous Tengboche Monastery

 

Best Season

(Mid-September – Mid-December) in autumn and (March – May) in spring are the best time of the year for Everest Base Camp Trek. The weather tends to remain stable with great views but nights are cold and can drop down to freezing in higher elevation. Pack sleeping bag for extra warmth.

 

Winter (December – February) is also favorable for EBC trek, the only issue is cold and snow. Get prepared to tackle the challenges: pack all the essential winter stuffs.

 

Trekking Everest in Summer (June – July) is highly affected by rain but it could be paradise for keen botanist. There is high risk of landslide, flood and avalanche in Everest region: better don’t trek EBC in
summer.

 

14 Days EBC Trek Difficulty

With good preparation and self-determination, the average weekend hikers can complete this trek comfortably. The first thing you need to know is that the trek does not requires technical skills: it is basically a long walk with numbers of ups and downs.

 

However, there are some factors that make it really difficult. Altitude is the prime thing you need to consider while trekking on EBC trial. Mountain sickness is common on route; so, acclimatize your body  properly before making another gain in altitude. Also stay hydrated and walk on gradual pace.

 

The second factor is its length. The 65km (one way) long trail with countless steep sections create
challenges for novice. But with proper rest and slow pace, the distance might not bother you.
