On the previous day, the TIMS card and national park entry permit were mandatory. Nowadays, you needn't have to carry the TIMS card.

Most Amiable Time to Do Everest Base Camp Trek
EBC trekking can be done all year round with more hurdles to disrupt your trekking specifically on winter and summer days. For a wonderful trekking experience go for the Everest Base Camp Trekking in Autumn or Spring Season. In the later seasons, you will find the climate clear resulting in the incredible view of mountains and surrounding nature.

Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty
The Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty level varies from person to person. For the experienced enthusiasts' trekkers, the trek might appear to be the moderate one. However, for first-time trekkers, it might appear challenging. But, as long as you have great physics and determination, the trek is not so challenging. Normally it is a trek that falls on grade difficult. With a positive attitude and a good fitness level, anyone can complete this trek. Before proceeding with the trek having knowledge of the difficulty factor of the trek is most advantageous. So, have a glance at the list of factors affecting the Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty.

1. Unpredictable Weather and Temperature
During the EBC trek, you will be trekking over the altitude of 2500m for several days. And the temperatures at the higher elevation never remain consistent. It can change at any time. You never know when the snow bizarre will sweep you down.

2. Everest Base Camp Trek Budget
If you have budget enough to spend on luxury wherever it is available, you will be facing less difficulty with accommodation compared to those with less budget. Note: As you gain elevation the price of every product and service goes on increasing. This is because of the transportation difficulty they have to face to transport goods.

3. High altitude gain increases the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness
The Everest Base Camp Trekking takes you to the elevation of 5364m. On the way each day you have a high risk of getting caught by altitude sickness. Thus, make sure to maintain a slow pace, acclimatize properly and drink sufficient water and take enough fluid eateries.

4. Number of trekking Days
If you have enough vacation to spend in the Himalayas then it automatically decreases the difficulty level as you can take enough rest on the way to acclimatize your body with the increasing elevation. though spending days on the higher elevation is not an easy task whatever comfort you own, it still caters to some.

 If you have a limited vacation, you have to do the Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek. This results in higher elevation gain every single day due to which the trek becomes more difficult for such a person.

Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary In Detail


When you step off the plane at the Tribhuvan airport after landing, you can immediately see that you are in a completely different world. a universe that has no resemblance to anything familiar or Western. There is a chance of confusion even here. As a result, a guide or our Nepalese aide will be waiting for you with a Couloir flag just outside the airport exit. You all make your way to a hotel in Kathmandu's well-known Thamel district. After a little period of leisure, set off to explore Nepal, one of the most magnificent countries in the world.

The guide will offer a briefing in the late afternoon when everyone is gathered. He will discuss the impending trek to Everest and the country's features, inspect the gear, and answer all of your questions. We try to avoid staying up late because we have an early trip to Lukla the following day.

Day 2: FLY TO LUKLA FROM Kathmandu and TRANSFER PHAKDING (2600 M), 8-KM 

Lukla is the heavenly entry to Sagarmatha Park. We arrive at Tenzing-Hillary Airport, one of the most enigmatic and tiny airports in the world, which has the name of the 1953 first ascent of Everest. We are met here by porters and a local guide. They may divide the job while we enjoy breakfast at one of the lodges.

On the first day of the trek to Everest base camp, only 8 kilometers are covered. The path gently slopes while passing rhododendron plants. The first significant snow-capped peak, Kusum Kangaru, will soon be visible (6367 m). Here are the real Himalayas, a magnificent yet unforgiving mountain range.

Along the trip, we pass by a variety of villages where you may learn about the straightforward way of life of the residents. We arrive in Phakding after a few hours, another community along the route that is almost entirely made up of tourist lodges. We'll stay here overnight.


In the evening, we will take everyone who wants to a Buddhist monastery several hundred meters higher for puja.

Friends, today is the day we finally get to view Mount Everest! We frequently cross the well-known hanging bridges, which are a separate attraction, as we move up the Dudh Kosi River. The Hillary Bridge will be our next stop. If you have seen the "Everest" movie, you will certainly be able to identify this place. Just after the bridge, the challenging climb to Namche Bazaar, where there will be an Everest observation deck, begins. Yes, at this distance, the stone behemoth does not look to be huge or the biggest. Before we get to the Sherpa capital, we must climb for another hour and a half. We decompress and settle in before making our way to the observation deck. Acclimatization is facilitated by this.

The altitude is the major obstacle to climbing Everest. Avoid hurrying, skipping steps, and speeding up the acclimatization process at this point. Every evening, the Mission Himalaya treks leader will embark on a brief expedition with the group, and twice, we'll take day outings to assist the body get used to the lack of oxygen. Today is the first. On day trips, though, we walk about more and ascend higher in order to take in the views.

Just above Namche, you'll be able to see Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Taboche, Arakamtse, Kongde Ri, and Thamserku. The view will leave you breathless! We proceed on foot to the Gumjung hamlet and Everest view hotel, where we will see Hillary's School and a yeti's head.

We will climb to a height of 4000 m to reach the Hillary memorial if we have the strength and the will to do so.


The biggest challenge of the Everest trip is the altitude. Here, it's crucial to take your time, avoid skipping steps and approach acclimatization as sensibly as you can. Every evening, the Mission Himalaya guide will lead the group on short excursions, and twice we'll go on day trips to help the body adjust to low oxygen levels. The first occurs today. On day visits, however, we do not remain seated but instead, stand up and enjoy the area.

We will view the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Taboche, Arakamtse, Kongde Ri, and Thamserku directly above Namche. A breathtaking view that will leave you speechless! The Everest view hotel and the village of Khumjung, where we will see the yeti scalp and Hillary's school, are the next stops on our journey. We will climb to a height of 4000 m to reach the Hillary memorial if we have the strength and the will to do so.

The peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablan, Taboche, Arakamtse, and Kongde will be visible just above Namche.


We travel to Tjangboche via the most picturesque and surprisingly level road while taking in the greatest views of Ama Dablam. Let's proceed past Tenzing Norgay's stupa while once more thinking back to the Everest video. There is a chance to spot Himalayan deer and wild goats if you look attentively about. We descend to the Dudh Kosi River, cross the bridge, and wait here for a two-hour ascent. Although difficult, we can accomplish this.

We will stay at a lodge close to Thyangboche Monastery, which is highly venerated by the Sherpas in the Sagarmatha (Everest) region. We visit the puja in the evening to ensure the success of our journey to the top of the globe.

Sixth-day: THYANGBOCHE - DINGBOCHE (4360 M), 10 KM

We resume our climb to the Everest base camp while still taking in the rhododendron clumps. Because we will leave the forest region today after visiting the settlement of Pangboche, it is best to keep in mind how lush the trees were. The vegetation will be sparser, the mountains closer and higher, and the landscapes will grow more austere. Our journey to the rather big settlement of Dingboche (4360 m), where we will rest for the following two nights, will take around six hours.

Day 7 Acclimation in Chukung RI, Island Peak Base Camp, Nagsarkang  or Dingboche:

We take a break on the way to Everest so that we can better acclimate to the altitude. There will be two choices available to us: jog to the Island Summit Base Camp (6189 m), Nepal's most well-liked peak for conditional trekking. This time, instead of ascending, we'll take in the most stunning sights from below. What is the three vertical kilometers-high Lhotse wall (8516 m), which is directly in front of us?

The second choice is to ascend Chukung Ri, which provides amazing views of Ama Dablam and the surrounding valley. Our ability to ascend to a height of 5070 meters will greatly aid in acclimatization. This choice is what we advise.


The vistas get more impressive with each dialed meter. We spend the night in the Pyramid, which is a highly noteworthy location. This is an Italian research facility that is currently open to normal trackers. There is limitless WI-FI, a hot shower, wonderful food, a phone charger, and infinite tea! A magnificent location at a height of 5050 meters. We'll take a stroll to the closest ridge, from which we get fantastic views of the Khumbu glacier's moraine and the peaks of Nuptse and Pumori.

Day 9: EVEREST BASE CAMP (5335 m), GORAK SHEP (5160 m), and 12.5 KM 

The long-awaited day has finally arrived—the summit of the Everest journey! Today we'll go to either a base camp with lots of climbers (if it's spring) or a deserted base camp (in autumn). The Khumbu Icefall and Everest Base Camp (5335 m) leave the most impression on all participants, regardless of the season. For daring climbers, this is just the start of the most challenging journey to the top of the globe; for us, this is the furthest point along the route. We head back to Gorak Shep village at night to be ready for tomorrow's climb.

Day 10:  KALA PATTHAR (5648 m) Morning Hiking, CROSSING TO PANGBOCHE (3900 m), 19 KM

We get up early because today we will climb Kala Pattar, a genuine Himalayan peak that is 5648 meters high. Yes, this mountain appears to be quite modest in comparison to the nearby Pumori (7161 m) and Everest (8848 m), but it is actually a few meters higher than Elbrus! We set off at around four in the morning and meet the sunrise further above. The solar disk gently emerges from behind Mount Everest's slopes, lighting and bringing the surroundings to life. You'll have this memory with you forever!

Following the descent, we eat breakfast, load the trunks, and begin the ascent. We'll aim to descend to Pangboche (3900), a settlement with power, mobile connections, coffee, and pastries, today. We can stop in Pheriche if it's difficult (4200).


We descend to Namche Bazaar exhausted from heights and bored with the benefits of civilization. A great hot shower and a true culinary wonderland are both right here! We take a nap, consume cheesecakes, and have genuine coffee. Having accomplished the main objectives of our climb to the Everest base camp, we can now take a little time to unwind.

Day 12: Trek from NAMCHE BAZAAR to LUKLA, 18 KM

We descend to Lukla along the well-worn path that meanders through pine forests and along the river's banks. We encounter suspension bridges along the way up to six times, but they no longer leave the same impressions or elicit the same feelings of excitement as they did at the beginning of the journey. Nevertheless, we have plenty of tracking experience!


We board an early-morning flight to Kathmandu and pray to the gods for favorable weather. We first check into a hotel before attending a free event. Anyone who wants to unwind can do so, and anyone who isn't exhausted can shop for unusual mementos. The most often imported items from Nepal include singing bowls, Buddha statues, mandalas, scarves made of yak and arable wool, various spices, and masala chai. Of course, everyone also purchases caps from Nepal.


Excursion day may also function as a backup in the event that Lukla is not left on time.
On top of the hill, there is a monkey temple called Swayambhunath that we will go see. In addition to monkeys, it's interesting to see so many Buddhist and Hindu temples all in one location. The hill also provides the greatest vistas of the entire Kathmandu valley, and in good visibility, distant snow-capped peaks may be viewed.

We proceed to Pashupatinath, the greatest Hindu temple complex, after Swayambhu, where sadhus who have renounced material possessions live and where funerals are held. Because so many individuals want to be burned here, we will surely witness this event. After seeing enough, we travel to Boudhanath, the largest Buddhist stupa in the world. The 2015 earthquake entirely destroyed it, although it has since been fully reconstructed. We'll pause as we round the stupa to ponder its holiness and power.

Filled with the spirit of Nepal and the sights of the Himalayas, and with a wealth of impressions, it's time to return home.
