Aerial view of the vast landscape with lush valleys and hills, view of the glittering mountains, serpentine shaped rivers weaving the settlements and valleys and dramatic sight of the terraced hills makes this flight entertaining. After landing in the Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla and meeting with other trek members, we embark on an introductory trek to Phakidng.

Trekking to the higher altitudes, we shall start our walk with a short but steep climb out of the Namche Bazaar before trekking on a fairly leveled trail to reach the settlements of Kenjoma and Sanasa through the dense forest and other vegetation, view of the mighty Everest and occasional exchange of greetings with fellow trekkers from other expeditions. After the trail junction leading to the Gokyo valley and the Everest base camp, we head down to the riverbed of the mighty Dudh Koshi River and climb on to Phunke Tenga through several bridges and some hamlets. Marked by water driven prayer wheels, Phunke Tenga generally serves as the resting place before taking on the steep trail leading to Tengboche. In a climb of around one hour and a half to two hours, ascent to Tengboche takes you in a twisting tail built on the hill through rhododendron forest. Take it easy when you go for such an uphill climb as you are now heading to the higher altitude where you definitely won’t want to be affected with altitude mountain sickness. In Tengboche visit the ancient monastery famous for celebration of Mani Rimdu festival, huge statue of Lord Buddha, intricate wall paintings and peaceful chants by the monks, the breathtaking scenery of the majestic mountains (including Kwangde, Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Kantega and Thamserku Peaks) where blooming rhododendron flower contrasts with its color.

We head on in the trail through the sighting of Musk Deer, Monal and Blue Sheep and cross the exciting suspension bridge over Imja River before reaching the settlement of Panchboche. Ancient stupa in the upper Pangboche, surrounded by trees, is a stoppage worth a short visit. Ahead in the trail, we have alpine vegetation as we move through a landscape with scrub juniper and tundra until we reach Dingboche. The trekking section through Somare is rather flat; after this village, we cross a suspension bridge and follow the Imja River upstream as we part our way from the trail to Pheriche. Further ahead in the trail we reach Dingboche where the trail from Lobuche to the Island Peak climb meets. Dingboche is a small village with stone walled houses, cultivation fields and the exquisite view of Lhotse, Island Peak, and Ama Dablam. Stay overnight in Dingboche.

Hike to Nangkartshang Gompa provides the trekkers with breathtaking views, opportunity to get insight into the heritages such as intricate paintings, Thangka and Yeti scalp, and hand. Explore the valley formed by mighty Imja River and the beautiful trail leading to the Island peak. Short hike to the hill behind Dingboche is another option which provides us with the view of a couple of six-thousand peaks. After exploring the breathtaking surrounding, capturing memories of the valley, we return for the overnight stay. Stay overnight in Dingboche and prepare for the next day trek.

Ahead of this is the most poignant section of today’s trek. An hour of trek leads us to the height of the high ground overlooking the Khumbu valley, called Chukpo Lari, where monuments are built in remembrance of the mountaineers who lost their lives during their expedition to conquer Everest. The trail then descends to the western side of the valley after walking over the glacial moraines of the majestic Khumbu Glacier. Stay overnight in Lobuche.

Included standard accommodation and  meals (Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner), Tea/Coffee

This is the day you are waiting for! Today we shall be heading for the Everest Base Camp as the destination. Be careful of the acute mountain sickness in this altitude and trek accordingly. The trek from Lobuche begins early in the morning after breakfast. We reach Gorakshep after trekking over the lateral moraines of the Khumbu Glacier past the Italian research center, the rocky paths, cautiously avoiding the ice pinnacles and occasional crevasses in the Khumbu region. The trail ascends over the Lobuche Pass and then reaches to the section sandwiched by large glaciers of Changri Nup and Khumbu. Shortly ahead is the awaited Gorakshep, our stoppage for lunch and the place of overnight stay for today. After refreshment, we head for our ultimate destination, the Everest Base Camp. Through the rocky path and on the New Moraine Route, we trek to the base camp. Flooded with the tents and camps of the climbers in the peak season, Everest Base Camp is the destination of the lifetime. The euphoric feeling of being there is beyond words and to be in the lap of the world’s tallest peak is something extraordinary. After capturing the memories of these extraordinary moments, we return back to the Gorakshep. You shall get completely lost in the beauty of the sunset visible from the base camp. Stay overnight in Gorakshep.

Included standard accommodation and  meals (Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner), Tea/Coffee

Get ready for another beautiful trekking day in the roof of the world as we trek to the Kala Patthar before making a return to the lower altitudes. Before the day breaks, we shall today get ready with our equipment and go for one of the most beautiful sunrises you will ever see. In a straight trek from Gorakshep to this small brown hill dwarfed by the Himalayas, we shall have the close-up view of the mighty Everest. Ideal for photographers, the sight of the Himalayas including Mt, Pumori, Lhotse, Nuptse and Changtse Peaks, the majestic Khumbu Glacier and the south-east face of Everest. Reach for the higher point of this black hill and capture as many memories as you can. After this extraordinary scenery, trek down to Gorakshep for lunch before heading down to Pheriche. We shall descent gradually from Gorakshep, in ups and downs and through the rocky terrain before taking an exit from the vicinity of Everest at Dughla and walking straight to Pheriche. Through the damp valley floor covered with moss, from the alpine vegetation to the sub-alpine vegetation this trek is mostly a downhill walk. Stay overnight in Pheriche.

Included standard accommodation and  meals (Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner), Tea/Coffee

The return from the vicinity of Everest continues as we depart from the beautiful Periche to the busy hub of Namche Bazaar. In this mostly downhill trek, we now are with the company of the torrential Dudh Koshi River. Our trek will be rather gradual as we won’t want to put much strain on our shaky legs and ankles. In this busy trekking trail, we shall encounter the caravan of fellow trekkers, porters, locals and their pet animals like Yak used for transporting goods; make sure you give way to them. Through the beautiful and dense forests, waterfalls, exciting and sometimes vertiginous suspension bridges festooned with prayer flags, flat and bumpy trails, gompas and monasteries, rural settlements and the culture and traditions practiced there are some of the major highlights of this section of the trek. Water driven prayer wheels, viewpoints of the Himalayas, sights of rare wild animals and strenuous stone steps shall take us to the destination of Namche Bazaar. Explore the busy streets of this ancient trade point and the current tourist hub as you take rest for today in this beautiful village. Stay overnight in Namche Bazaar.

Included standard accommodation and  meals (Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner), Tea/Coffee

This section of a trek is the last of such trekking in this adventurous journey that climaxed in the base camp of Everest. Descent on a steep trail out of the Namche Bazaar to descent at the riverbed of a confluence of Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi River and after crossing over the high suspension bridge, we reach to Monjo where we exit the Sagarmatha National Park. Through the beautiful Benkar and past waterfalls, several suspension bridges, unique, busy and interesting villages including the popular ones such as Phakdng, Ghat, Nurning and Chheplung, Mani walls and prayer wheels, we trek up to the hill town of Namche Bazaar. The beautiful and humongous Himalayas overlooking the entire trail acts as the motivation for trekkers; they find the purpose of trekking in the sight of mountains. After reaching Luka, get yourself relaxed and explore the surrounding areas of the hotel, if you are interested. Stay overnight in Lukla.

Included standard accommodation and  meals (Breakfast + Lunch + Dinner), Tea/Coffee

Today we shall return to the medieval capital city of Kathmandu after an adventurous stay in the Khumbu (Everest) region. Due to the weather-related disturbances during the day, we shall take on the flight that starts early morning from Lukla. Over the vast landscape, lush hills and valleys, perennial rivers and with the sight of glittering Himalayas, the flight of around 35 minutes bring us back to the civilization of Kathmandu valley. You shall be transferred to the hotel of your stay for the much-deserved rest after enduring a rather strenuous trek in the Khumbu region.

Two tailor-made treks in the Nepal regions "Everest Base Camp Trek & Jungle Safari in Chitwan" We researched many companies to book our EBC trek and after exchanged e-mails with Dipak he helped plan our EBC trek, tour in Kathmandu and Jungle Safari in Chitwan in a professional, helpful and organized manner. On arrival in Kathmandu, we were greeted at the airport with a friendly, warm welcome from Dipak and he helped settle us in at our hotel and took us out for a traditional Nepalese meal as well as organizing a day tour with guide of Kathmandu. Dipak's organization of our EBC trek was wonderful and the guide he supplied on the trek was informative, friendly and very organized in looking after us, making sure we had enough food, tea, and a decent bed for the night after a long day walking. The trek was beautiful and we had an amazing experience. We went back to Kathmandu after the trek was finished and Dipak greeted us and hear about our adventure and keep us informed about our next part of the trip - Jungle Safari in Chitwan. We stayed in Chitwan National Park for 4 nights 3 days and stayed at a lovely lodge by the river just outside the town. We went on Elephant safari, Jungle walks, bird watching, canoeing, traditional evening performance and much needed relaxing after our EBC trek. We had lovely accommodation and by the river and very helpful staff who looked after our every need. It was our first visit to Nepal and Dipak made our trip hassle free, organized and all with a warm welcome which meant we could enjoy our trek to the fullest. I would recommend Dipak and Trekking Planner services and I myself would love to return to complete some Annapurna trekking in the future and will be using Trekking Planner Nepal to do so. Many thanks for such a brilliant holiday of a lifetime! Lauren Connors Visited November 2014

Exceptional personal service, highly recommended

From the first email we sent enquiring about a trek with Dipak the service was phenomenal. He could not do enough to help, and went above and beyond on every aspect. He personally met us at the airport and ensured we were checked into our hotel and we're happy with everything (great accommodation and great staff) we booked a mountain flight through him to see Everest and the Himalayas and again he personally met us at the hotel and accompanied us to the airport (at 0500). We trekked to base camp with trekking planner and it was superb, small group (just 3 of us) great personal service from everyone, guides and porters. Stayed in better tea houses than most we met on our trip. Look no further than Trekking Planner, these are your guys for any trek / trip to Nepal. Visited December 2016

Frequently Asked Questions

Based on location, the tea houses vary on their quality and style on this trek. Each of them have communal room downstairs with one or two bed bedrooms above them. You have to share toilet facilities. Some have hot shower facilities but some will have a stand pipe. Tea houses use a burning stove in main communal area. The other rooms are unheated. Tea houses do not have money exchange facilities. We recommend you exchange cash in Kathmandu.

At the lower altitudes there is electricity to charge your electronics. As we go higher tea houses become more basic. Cooler temperatures drain battery life, ensure your batteries last a little longer by putting it inside pocket of your coat during the day or under your pillow at night.

No, as there is enough time to acclimatize while trekking it felt there is no need for them. If someone feels the affects of altitude then there are facilities along the trek at various points and it’s easy to get.

A group will have a group leader or a guide who will lead you on the trek. Porters will be there to carry your baggage packs as well as all camping gear. One porter will carry two trekkers’ bags. The number of supporting staff will depend upon your group size.

At most, 3-4 liters is sufficient. You will be able to refill bottles at lunch time. When you are at high altitude you have to drink more water to alleviate symptoms of altitude.

Yes, trekking poles make you easy to walk over rough or steep terrain. Trekking poles makes your body and leg to move more safely. Furthermore, it will help relieve the stress on your legs. So, we suggest you use them.

Tea houses and other small shops on the way have stores which sell bottled water and other supplies you may desire. There are no any plastic recycling facilities in Nepal, we encourage you to bring chlorine tablets or a filter and use previously boiled water in the tea houses. Please consider not adding to the plastic waste problem in Nepal.

You have to bring iodine tablets with you. Chlorine tablets are widely available. The most effective and commonly used version of chlorine is chlorine dioxide, which is tasteless and odorless. Tablets can be bought cheaply and usually 1 tablet is sufficient to purify 1 liter of water. Neutralizing tablets can also be bought to get rid of the smell and taste of chlorine or iodine. This will need to be done for water obtained using hand pumps or in streams during the trek.

Altitude produces physical changes in the body. The higher you go, more pronounced those changes. If you gain a lot of elevation quickly then you experience dizziness, nausea, headaches, and dehydration, you are probably suffering from altitude sickness. In rare cases this may worsen, so the group leader keeps a close watch on all trekkers. The group leader is trained to recognize Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If a trekker shows any signs of AMS they will be evacuated to a lower, safe altitude immediately. To minimize effects of altitude you ascend slowly which allows for safe acclimatization.

It depends on the nature of your illness. If you suddenly feel dizzy or weak, you have to sit or lie down. If you still feel sick, keep a warm and rest until you can get medical help. You will be carried down or evacuated if you do not start to feel better. Although we provide a first aid kit, we advise travelers to take a personal first aid kit too.

In serious cases, you may need helicopter rescue. Our guide will suggest you use it if your condition is very serious. Therefore, helicopter rescue insurance is necessary for every trekker before you come to trek with Trekking Planner.

Yes. The weather is changeable in the Himalaya so you should expect to experience all four seasons in one day. Make sure you have plenty of warm layers which you can shed or add as required. Even in winter, it can be as warm as 19C during the day. The higher the altitude the higher the temperature difference is at night. It can get very cold at night, around -10C in October/November, and around -20C from December to February.

Alcohol is consumed in Nepal. You can buy it in tea houses in the trek. Local alcohol is also available. However, we suggest not to drink alcohol at a high altitude.

Nepal is our home and we believe in minimizing the impact of tourism in our mountains. We do not encourage the use of plastic bottles, littering, or trashing towns or trails. We expect that you uphold those same values. Please dispose of your waste properly in bins provided and try your best not to rely on disposable plastic bottles. Instead, opt to bring your own filtration system with a re-usable water bottle.
