Tour Overview

All the highlights you would expect from the Everest region are included in this well paced trek to Everest Base Camp. We take extra time to acclimatise whilst exploring the often overlooked corners such as Khumjung, Khunde and Pangboche, before ascending above the tree line to Thyangboche, with time to explore the famous Thyangboche Monastery before continuing to Deboche. Descending through rhododendron forest we emerge into the upper reaches of the Khumbu, and surrounded by the worlds most famous peaks we make our way to Everest Base Camp. During the months of March to May we can see many climbing expeditions preparing to climb the most famous mountain on our planet. We have also factored extra time up high in order to provide the best chances of climbing Kala Pattar, which will provide unrivalled views and photo opportunities of Mount Everest and surrounding peaks. This trek provides the very best chances of achieving your goal of reaching Everest Base Camp and of climbing Kala Pattar, with all accommodation in comfortable eco lodges and our exclusive private eco campsites with off the ground camp beds and heated dining rooms.

Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1 : Join Kathmandu

You will be met by a representative of World Expeditions and transferred to the Radisson hotel. Remainder of the afternoon at leisure. A pre-trek briefing will be given around 4.30-5pm where arrangements will be made for the distribution of your kit bag, sleeping bag and down/fibrefill jacket. This evening we will head out for dinner, this is a great opportunity to get acquainted with your fellow group members.
Overnight: Radisson Hotel

Day 2 : Free Day Or Drive To Ramechap (Approx 5 Hours)
Meals Included: B

After breakfast there will be an opportunity to pick up any last minute trekking items before departing to Ramechap. We will journey through foothills and valleys before stopping at Dhulikhel for lunch. After lunch we continue to Ramechap, a small town that operates flights to Lukla, the starting point of all treks in the Khumbu region. Our campsite will be in close proximity to the runway for our early morning flight to Lukla.
Overnight: Private eco-camp
*NB: Domestic flights to/from Lukla during Spring and Autumn trekking seasons (March-May and October-December) may operate from Manthali Airport, Ramechap. This is determined by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal and dates are subject to change. Your leader will brief you on flight arrangements locally.

Day 3 : Fly Lukla (2800M). Trek To Ghat (2530M). Walk Approx 2 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

We transfer to the airport for the 45 minute flight to the STOL airstrip at Lukla. This was the airstrip built by Sir Edmund Hillary and his friends to service the Everest Region when he began his work of building schools and hospitals for the Sherpa people. It is a memorable flight, with marvellous views of the Eastern Himalaya. At Lukla we are immediately impressed by the scale of the huge peaks that surround the village but this is only a foretaste of what is to come. Our crew assemble and we head downhill towards the Dudh Kosi, a raging river that flows from the highest peaks. The broad and well-marked trail meanders around fields of potatoes and buck-wheat and passes through small villages, as we pass rows of tree dahlia to make our way to our first overnight stop at our private eco campsite at Ghat.

Day 4 : To Monjo (2850M). Walk Approx 4-5 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

Today we cross and re-cross the thundering glacial river, named "Dudh" (milk) Kosi (river) because of its colour. Sections of today's walk are through pine forest and cleared areas reveal terraced fields and a variety of crops. We pass small groups of donkeys and yaks carrying trading goods and trek-gear along the trail. We pass small groups of donkeys, yaks and dzopko carrying trading goods and trek - gear along the trail. A dzopko is a yak-cow crossbreed while a yak is a full-blood long haired male, more commonly found at higher altitudes. Spectacular mountain peaks unfold above us and seem to hover above the tree-line as they rise above the deep river valley. Shortly after leaving camp we cross the Kusum Khola, a tributary stream to the Dudh Kosi, and the peak of Kusum Kangru (6369 m) can be seen to the East, at the head of the valley. Further along the trail, across the valley to the North-West, Nupla (5885 m) and Kongde Ri (6093 m) rise above the forested ridges. At a turn of the trail, Thamserku (6808 m) rises majestically, seemingly from the river floor.
We will see our first Mani walls today. These stone structures are a compilation of many stone tablets, each with the inscription "Om Mani Padme Hum" which translates to "Hail to the jewel in the lotus", and is mantra (chant) venerated by Buddhists and Brahmans alike.
Buddhists will walk to the left of these Mani Walls and chortens, but you may notice that people of the lowlands who have no knowledge of Buddhism do not follow this practice.
The allure of the mountains is hard to resist, but we must be patient, as it is very important to acclimatise slowly and thereby fully appreciate our time at higher altitude. Today's walk is not a long one, and you will be eager to press on. Slow down, and enjoy the journey. Overnight at our private eco camp site above Monjo.

Day 5 : To Namche (3440M). Walk Approx 4-5 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

This morning we cross the green/aqua waters of the Dudh Kosi and pass through the gates of the Sagamartha National Park. The establishment of this national park is a significant attempt to stem the use of fire-wood in the area. Self-contained trek groups must use only kerosene fuels for cooking, a philosophy we follow everywhere in Nepal, whether we are in a national park or not. Tea-houses and lodges are encouraged to use kerosene, yak dung or electricity but unfortunately continue to use mostly fire-wood for cooking, heating and for hot water for trekker's showers. This practice continues to deplete the forests. We follow the river course to the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and the Bhote Kosi and cross a spectacular high bridge before commencing our ascent to the village of Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa "capital" of Nepal. It is a tough climb as the trail passes through forest of pine to a vantage point that provides our first view of Mt Everest. The trail continues to climb and meander to Namche and the sight of this prosperous village spread within a horse-shoe shaped valley opposite the beautiful peak of Kongde Ri is worth every step. After lunch you may wish to peruse the Tibetan trader's stalls or the Sherpa shops in search of a bargain.
Overnight: eco-lodge

Day 6 : Rest Day Namche Bazaar
Meals Included: B, L, D

Sagarmartha National Park Headquarters just above our private eco campsite offers a very interesting display of photographs, memorabilia and information on the park, and the hill above is a wonderful vantage point for the spectacular view up the Imja Khola Valley towards Everest. The change from the narrow lowland valleys to the broad glacial ones is immediately obvious. The steep-sided glacial valley before us gradually winds towards the base of Everest, broken only by the moraines left by retreating glaciers. Its more gradual rate of climb is a blessing for those trekking higher. Towering to over 4000 metres above the valley floor, spectacular peaks seem to engulf us. Around us are Taweche (6542 m), Thamserku (6808 m), Kantega (6685 m), Ama Dablam (6856 m), Nuptse (7896 m) and Lhotse (8511 m). The greatest of all, Mt Everest (8848 m), rises at the head of the valley. Those who are fit and acclimatising well may wish to take the optional walk to the Everest View Hotel (4-5hrs) where spectacular views of Everest and Ama Dablam may be seen. For those feeling well acclimatised there is also the option of a day walk to the pretty village of Khumjung. Khumjung is where Sir Edmund Hillary built his “Schoolhouse In the Clouds” and the famed Khunde hospital is close by. World Expeditions supports both of these famous community facilities, as well as the many other projects operated by the Himalayan Trust. There will generally be the opportunity for you to visit the hospital and school. We will also be able to visit the monastery at Khumjung where we may have the opportunity to see the “scalp of a yeti”.
Overnight: eco-lodge

Day 7 : To Kyangjuma (3550M) Via Khumjung, Walk Approx 3-4 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

Our trek will start with an incline to Syangboche airstrip and along the ridgeline towards Everest View Hotel. We are welcomed with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains including Everest, Lhotse, Thamserku, Khangtega, Ama Dablam and many more. After a quick break, we continue towards the Sherpa villages of Khunde and Khumjung. In accordance with our Child Welfare Policy, we will not interrupt class time or have direct contact with the students, but instead will walk past Sir Edmund Hillary's first school and learn about significant of this location. Adjacent to the school and above the village stands the sacred mountain of Khumbu Yui Lha, where locals offer blessings and pray for bountiful harvests. We then descend and follow the trail for approx 25 minutes to our new exclusive campsite at Kyangjuma. For those who are feeling the early effects of altitude can opt for a shorter acclimatization walk of around 2 hours directly from Namche to Kyangjuma. Overnight: Private eco-campsite

Day 8 : Trek To Pangboche (3930M) Walk Approx 5-6 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

The walk to Pangboche is one of the most spectacular trekking days in Nepal. The trail meanders easily around the ridges and Everest can be clearly seen on the horizon ahead before we descend through splendid rhododendron forests for lunch. After lunch we cross the Dudh Kosi and begin the ascent to the top of a long ridge which flows from the summit of Kantega. Our trail takes us through pine and rhododendron forest, and, as this is a devout Buddhist region, the wildlife is unharmed and not too shy. As a result there is a possibility that we may see Himalayan Thar, Musked Deer or pheasants in the forest and around our campsite. As we approach the ridgeline we pass through a traditional gateway and around a chorten before cresting the ridge onto a wide grassy meadow at the monastery village of Thyangboche. The monastery was re-built with the assistance of Sir Edmund Hillary after it was destroyed by fire in 1989. The views of the Everest massif, as well as all the other major peaks of the area are astounding. After a rest and visit to the monastery we head downhill to our private eco campsite at Pangboche.

Day 9 : Trek To Dingboche (4360M). Walk Approx 3-4 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

This morning we begin a steady ascent. The stunning views of Everest, Lhotse, Kantega, Thamserku, Ama Dablam and Nuptse are spectacular throughout our walk today. We head down to cross the Imja Khola before an easy climb along a wide, open trail to the small village of Pangboche (4000m). We may take a slight detour to visit the Pangboche Gompa - the oldest monastary (around 300 years old) in the Khumbu Region. We cross the river again and then gradually trek up to Dingboche, situated just beneath the impressive Ama Dablam. Overnight private eco camp.

Day 10 : Rest Day In Dingboche
Meals Included: B, L, D

An important acclimatisation/rest day today with the option of hiking high up to the ridge overlooking the village, or perhaps up to Chukung Village. Excellent views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Chukung Peak and Imja Tse (6189m) are had from both in the valley or from the ridge above the camp. Massive glaciers drape beneath cliffs that soar up to 3,500 metres in this dramatic valley. Overnight private eco camp.

Day 11 : To Lobuche (4930M). Walk Approx 6 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

We are gaining altitude and it is important that we move at a slow, steady pace. The slopes are quite barren now as we move above the tree line. Views of different peaks, such as Cholatse and Lobuche, unfold before us in this contrasting and spectacular landscape. We move up the Dhugla Ridge and onto moraine towards the Khumbu Glacier. Rock cairns can be seen, many of which are dedicated to the memory of climbers attempting the high mountains of the area, including Everest. The temperatures drop here as we are more exposed amongst this glacial moraine. We enjoy spectacular views all day today of Pumori and Nuptse. The hill above the town affords fine sunset views of Nuptse.
Overnight eco lodge (please note that single supplements cannot be guaranteed at Lobuche during peak periods).

Day 12 : To Gorak Shep (5288M) & Base Camp (5360M). Walk Approx 7-8 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

We trek alongside the Khumbu Glacier as the path winds over the rocky moraine towards the settlement of Gorak Shep. We are high, among the glaciers of the world's highest peaks. Following our arrival at Gorak Shep we have an early lunch before we commence our trek to Everest Base Camp. In the pre monsoon season many expeditions can be seen at base camp and this excursion is one of the highlights of the trek. After a short exploration of Everest Base Camp, we hike back down to Gorak Shep for overnight in eco lodge. (please note that single supplements cannot be guaranteed at Gorak Shep during peak periods).

Day 13 : Ascend Kala Pattar (5545M). To Summit And Return Approx. 5 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

This morning we will make the ascent of Kala Pattar, the imposing lookout that is easily accessible from Gorak Shep. It is a strenuous climb but well worth the effort. Below us the Khumbu Glacier snakes towards the icefall and Western Cwm. We can see the area where expeditions set their base camp but the original site was at Lake Camp, now known as Gorak Shep. Take a look in every direction and soak it in. The view south and our route out, is particularly beautiful.
Overnight in eco lodge at Gorak Shep.

Day 14 : Descend To Dingboche. Walk Approx. 6 Hours.
Meals Included: B, L, D

There can be a tendency now to rush, particularly as we are walking downhill, but there is still much to see. Continue on to our private eco camp at Dingboche for the night.To the east at the head of the Imja Khola valley sits the pyramid peak of Imja Tse (6189 m). This afternoon we can walk up the ridge behind Dingboche for sunset views of Nuptse, Lhotse and Chhukung Peak.

Day 15 : To Pangboche, Walk Approx. 3 Hours.
Meals Included: B, L, D

There can be a tendency now to rush, particularly as we are walking downhill, but there is still much to see. We descend to our overnight at Pangboche and visit its historic old monastery, thought to be the oldest in the Khumbu.

Day 16 : To Phortse Tenga (3680M), Walk Approx 4 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

Today we slowly follow the trails down the valley alongside the Dudh Kosi towards our overnight camp at Phortse Tenga. Remember to turn around to take in views of Ama Dablam and the valley from a different perspective!
Overnight: private eco-campsite or eco-lodge

Day 17 : Return To Namche (3440M), Walk Approx. 4 Hours
Meals Included: B, L, D

If the weather is clear, the mountain views are outstanding - Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse are at the head of the valley, their line of sight flanked by Taweche on one side and Ama Dablam on the other. Almost directly above us are Kantega and Thamserku. Completing a 360 degree panorama of mountains are Khumblia and Kongde Ri which encircle us from across the valley. It's a pleasant walk down to Namche, and as we near the village we pass through terraced fields that are home to a brightly colored pheasant, the Danphe Pheasant, the national bird of Nepal.
Overnight: eco-lodge

Day 18 : To Ghat (2530M). Walk Approx 3-4 Hours

Grading

On a moderate trek physical activity will generally not exceed eight hours in a day, and altitudes generally not exceeding 5,500 metres. On a moderate adventure the physical activity is sustained and travelers should be comfortable with occasional rough terrain. At any stage of a moderate trek you can expect long steep climbs and descents and a wide range of weather conditions. An example of an average day on moderate trek could include several ascents and descents of 500 metres or more, level ground is rare in the mountains. To prepare for a moderate trek you should begin training at least four to five months before your departure. As a guideline, an hour of aerobic exercise three to four times per week would be considered a minimum requirement. The best preparation is bushwalking involving relatively steep ascents and descents. If you can manage a couple of valley floor to ridgeline ascents per bushwalk, albeit with stops along the way, you will cope with a moderately graded trek. Speed is not important, stamina, confidence and continuity are.

Check out our Q&As

  • Who will be my travelling companions on the tour?

    We have offices on three continents which means your travelling companions will be just that – international and wonderfully eclectic. Part of small group travel means that although travellers come from various locations and backgrounds, you will be travelling with like-minded companions who, like you, are keen to share the experience and forge lifelong friendships.

  • What about environmental impact?

    We believe that adventure travel revolves around establishing a strong relationship with the people and environments in which we operate. Our responsible travel policies have been carefully developed to ensure that we minimise the impact of our presence and help to protect the regions we visit while contributing positively to the local community.

  • What should I pack?

    Your pre-departure documents include a detailed packing list with items that you need to bring. While most of the equipment for daily activities is included in your tour cost, some items like helmets and hiking boots are best brought from home. The pre-departure documents also include information on layering and recommended brands for various items to ensure you are fully prepared for your trip.

  • Do you operate a “single share” option and how does it work?

    Yes. World Expeditions does not require single travellers to pay a surcharge for travelling alone on the vast majority of our trips. Our holidays are primarily on a twin share basis, so if you are joining the group as a solo traveller, we will match you with someone of your own gender. The choice is yours however; if you prefer not to share, we do offer single supplements for private occupancy.

  • Are tips included in my trip price?

    Tips are not included in the tour cost. Tipping is a personal thing, do not worry about how much, or when, to tip. Tipping guidelines are provided for certain destinations in our pre departure information upon booking, however the best advice will be provided by your tour leader.

  • Am I suited to small-group travel?

    We recognise that many of our travellers have not been on a ‘group trip’ before. Yet what our departures provide is both structure and flexibility, allowing you plenty of freedom within the framework of the itinerary. You’ll find that with our maximum group size at 16, you’ll travel in a minimal impact style with a great group of like-minded travellers.

  • Can you advise which vaccinations are recommended?

    While our pre-departure kit provides information on vaccinations, we suggest that you consult your doctor, local government inoculation centre or a travel medical specialist in order to get the most current advice regarding vaccination requirements.

Reviews from Travellers on this Tour

Richard Ingham(Seal, United Kingdom)  

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

22 Dec 2022

After speaking to WE, decided over 50's EBC trek was best option. The WE team on the trek led by Randeep supported by Covinder, were exceptional. Special mention to Moan who provided really good food throughout. Allowing 17 days for the trek provided lots of acclimatisation which enabled most people to reach EBC. Thought the trek back was on the same route but was along a trail to Pheriche where there were very few people and absolutely beautiful.

C. Cluning(Ringwood North, VIC)  

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

18 Dec 2018

The trip was great, very well organised. We were all looked after extremely well. Our leader Padam did a great job as did Dinesh, Amar and our amazing cook. The food was very good and plentiful. The trek itself was made easier by having the extra days that the over 55’s trip offers. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. I would definitely travel with World Expeditions again.

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

18 Apr 2023

What an amazing trip. Stunning scenery, lovely people, great organisation.Taking longer to reach base camp was the best decision and all our group made it. I'd like to give a huge shout out to our group leader Randeep, Sherpas Govider and Ram, and all the team. Everything was so well organised, we were looked after expertly, and their attention to the requirements for trekking at altitude were second to none. They made this trip the best group trek I have done.

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

21 Apr 2022

Guides Sanjay, Berbal and Lok were exceptional with the help and jobs they were tasked with. Scenery just got more awesome on the way up. We both had a great time and would advise anyone who would do this trip in the future, learn to walk over rocks and boulders, all part of the challenge of doing this very rewarding trip.

Sheila Walker(Jordans, UK)  

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

22 Nov 2016

Prasant was always very helpful and attentive and aware of the needs particularly at certain times of the over 55's. His concern, shared by his assistants, was always for our safety. We felt that the pace from the leader at the front was perfect. It was clear that all members of the group felt that the priority was Everest Base Camp and this was prioritised very successfully. In the event the group then decided that with time constraints we wouldn't try to tackle Kala Pattar. The trek exceeded expectations in every way.

C. Metcalf(White Gum Valley, Western Australia)  

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

Padam the trek leader and his crew are total focused on providing good food in some cases under difficult circumstances, attention to detail and safety was paramount to the well running of the trek.

As always a wonderful and well supported World Ex trip. The Nepalese staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. We can't thank them all enough. The trip to Everest base camp was hard but the views were amazing. To be recommended.

K. Roberts(Yandina, QLD)  

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

The guilds with our group were wonderful, not only professional, but friendly, easy to talk with, language allowing, and most helpful with each walkers needs. The porters were amazing, always happy, and very helpful.

Anthony Rood(Blackheath, NSW Australia)  

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

26 Apr 2023

Great trip, well organised

Douglas Anderson(Glasgow)  

Everest Base Camp over 55's in Comfort

30 Apr 2022

Prior to our trip we were well looked after by Gordon and Nicola, WE's very knowledgeable staff in London and they were very flexible in accommodating our changing requirements. The trek itself was an amazing experience, it was challenging and hugely enjoyable, and I will have great memories of it for the rest of my life. It was very well organised by Sanjay, WE's trek leader and his two assistants, Lok and Birbal. Between them and their team of porters we were treated to the experience of a lifetime and I would have no hesitation in recommending WE to anyone thinking of trekking in the Himalayas in the future.
