Trek to Everest Base Camp
Trek to Everest Base Camp
The trek toEverest base camp trek is a tea house trek. There is no other place on the planet where you can go trekking like Nepal. Villages dot the landscape, each with its own set of hotels, restaurants, and tea houses (mini-hotels) where you can stop for lunch, buy supplies, and eat apple pie. You do not stay in tents on the EBC Trek. You stay in teahouses with comfortable beds, wood-burning fireplaces, and restaurants. They are a welcome sight after a long day of trekking, contributing to the trek to Everest being one of our most memorable experiences.
About Everest Base Camp
How is the trek to Everest base camp trek in Nepal? It's life-changing, exhilarating, and challenging. In this step-by-step EBC trek guide, we cover everything you need to know, from planning to packing for your trip to breaking down each day. So relax and join us on a journey through Nepal's legendary Sagarmatha National Park.
Itinerary for Everest Base Camp
On the map, the distances between villages on the Everest Base Camp trek appear to be relatively short. Eight days appears to be more than enough time to cover a mere 63 km (39 miles) (one way), but with several days above 4000 metres in a row, the walk is slow and steady. To avoid altitude sickness, it is critical not to push too hard. Expect to hike between 7 and 17 kilometres per day.
Since 1976, Sagarmatha National Park has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited, covering 1148 square kilometres (443 square miles). Plan your trek to Everest Base Camp now.
Begin in Kathmandu - Flight Kathmandu to Lukla
Everest Base Camp Trek Flight
Our journey began in Kathmandu, Nepal, where we spent a few days gathering all of the necessary equipment and booking a tour with a local company. We chose Simreak Real Nepal, which is owned by Kathmandu resident Dipendra Simkhada. He organised the entire trip for us, and all we had to do was wait for him to pick us up at our Kathmandu guesthouse and take us to the airport to board our Tara Air flight to Lukla.

At only 525 metres, the Lukla airstrip is a short landing strip (1,729 feet long.) It is also a very steep grade because it is built on the side of a mountain.
Accommodation – Tea Houses on Everest Base Camp
For the rest of the day, we followed the Dudh Koshi River Valley at a steady but leisurely pace to the village Pakding. Temperatures were warm and the first day of trekking was comfortable. After about 5 hours, we came to our first night on the trek where we spent the night in a comfortable teahouse.
It was a quaint little hotel/teahouse that looked like a cottage. The wood-burning stove smelled delicious as it warmed the restaurant while they prepared our meals. The rooms were clean and we slept like rocks snuggled up in our thick down sleeping bags.
