Tour Overview

The Everest Base Camp Trek is famous around the world as its offers a world-class trekking trail, heading straight up to the mother of earth - Mount Everest, the worlds highest mountain at 8,850 m. When doing the everest base camp trek you will be flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, the airport in the everest region, landing amidst mountains. The closer you get to Everest Base camp, the higher the more altitude you take on, and the more mountainous the landscape gets. The scenery on this trek is extremely rewarding and despite it may be tough and challenging at times, this is a one-in-a-lifetime-experience which you are likely to remember for the rest of your life. Leaving the airport Lukla, the trek starts and we will spend the first night in Phakding. On the second day we will trek to Namche Bazar, the capital of the Everest region. Here, at an altitude of 3,400 meters, we will take one rest day to acclimatize properly. This also gives us a chance to explore Namche and make an excursion to a great view point, getting the first view of Mount Everest. From Namche Bazaar, we trek through high altitudes and chilly weather. After four hours trekking, we reach Tyangboche Monastery which is located at an altitude of 3,867 m. This monastery resides on the top of a ridge. It provides the first divine view of Sagarmatha, which Mount Everest is called by the local inhabitants of the Everest region. From here, we move towards our destination following the villages of Imja Khola, Pangboche and Pheriche, finally reaching the vast Khumbu glacier. Beyond this glacier we reach the village of Lobuche where we can rest for some time and admire the exquisite natural surroundings. Soon you will be atop the great viewpoint of KalaPatthar at an altitude of 5,600 meters. You will also stand face to face with mountaineers preparing to ascend Mt. Everest, at Everest Base Camp. If you are able to trek 6 hours a day, you can do this trek. If in doubt, we highly recommend that you employ the services of a porter who can carry your backpack (1 porter can carry up to 30 kgs so can be shared between 2 people). You can add a porter upon check-out. We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic trekking experience.

12 days trek to Everest Base Camp

31-Mar-2019

Had such an amazing time trekking with these guys. Naba, my guide, is amazing. I had joined another couple that were also doing the trek. Naba our guide has been amazing and attentive throughout the trek. As I was slightly ahead of the group, he made sure the porters were ahead to take care of me, guiding me to our tea house while he stayed with the other 2 trekkers. And he always made sure we were fed before he has his meals. Sometimes if it wasn’t for the Lakpa and Sonma waiting ahead, I would have given up during lots of uphill struggle. Going downhill I was slower so Naba usually stayed w me, making sure I was safe since I have knee issues going down. Always made sure we were properly hydrated and well fed. Thanks to his patient, we all made it to Base Camp! I would def recommend Outshine Adventure and trek with them again!

Trek to Everest Base Camp

31-Oct-2018

My daughter and I recently completed a fabulous trip to Everest Base Camp. Everything was very well organised down to the finest detail. The pre trip information was accurate and response to all queries was fast. Our guide, Gange was excellent in all respects and provided great customer care. Mr Gokul, who runs the company, was extremely helpful and was always available to help or answer any questions. When one of our party who experienced a medical issue after reaching base camp, he stepped in to arrange helicopter evac and coordinated with the insurance Company. He even went to see that person once they arrived at the hospital in Kathmandu! I will certainly be recommending Outshine to anyone I know who would like to visit Nepal. They far exceeded my expectations - a great company with great people
