The Trek to EBC (Everest Base Camp):

We have an early morning flight to catch and head for Lukla. As the world’s 38th highest airport the flight is quite adventurous. Seeing the high hills transform into the Himalayas is just incredible. The landing can get thrilling but it just adds up to the adventure! Landing in Lukla we start at an altitude of 2,860m/9,380ft above sea level. After meeting up with our Beyond the Limits porter team and holding a final gear check we set out on the Everest Base Camp trek!

Our first destination is the village of Phakding at an altitude of 2,610m/8,563ft. Mostly descending we trek through lush forests along the Dudh Koshi River until reaching the suspension bridge leading to the village. This day is perfect to get accustomed to the Himalayan trails. After our first overnight, we have a long day ahead as it’s a straight climb upwards to Namche Bazaar. We need to elevate about +900m/2,953ft in a single day. The trail consists mostly of jungle trails following the Dudh Khosi Khola. At Monjo we have our first permits check post as well as a short break. This marks the entry into the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park. The feeling just gets surreal and we head further ascending to Namche Bazaar, also known as the biggest Sherpa village in the Everest region!

Namche Bazaar is just amazing. Filled with everything trekkers might dream of it also serves as a last supply post before heading on. We’ll need to stay here a day to properly acclimatize to avoid any chances of getting acute mountain sickness. Beyond the Limits takes you on an acclimatization hike to the Everest View Hotel from where the first views of Mt Everest can be seen! The hike goes up to Syangboche and then down into the Khumjung Valley. We’ll return in the afternoon to Namche Bazaar where we can see the Everest Photo Gallery and the Sherpa Culture Museum. The next day we continue on our trek to Everest Base Camp and head for the region’s oldest and largest Buddhist Monastery in Tengboche (3,867m/12,687ft). The views get better and better with each step and from Tengboche, you’ll get to see those white Himalayas contrasting against the blue sky. Standing at Tengboche Monastery gives a spiritual feeling and we’ll be sure to explore here and see the monks performing their duties, before turning in for the night.

Plan Your Trips

Our next destination during the Everest Base Camp trek is Dingboche at 4,410m/14,470ft. Serving as our second acclimatization destination, we’ll need to head down from Tengboche and cross the Imja Khola River to access the Imja Valley. Dingboche is also the main point for Island Peak Climbers. Views of Mt Everest, Mt Ama Dablam, and Island Peak are the day's main highlights. Having spent our first night in Dingboche we’ll hold our second acclimatization hike up to the Nagarsang Peak with a height of 5,170m/16,962ft. It’s quite the hike but the rewards are just amazing. Incredible views of Mt Lobuche (6,119m/20,076ft), Mt Thamserku (6,623m/21,729ft), Mt Kangtega (6,782m/22,251ft), Mt Ama Dablam (6,812m/22,349ft), Taboche Peak (6,542m/21,463ft), as well as others can be seen from atop Nagarsang Peak! We head back down to Dingboche overnight.

Another day of trekking takes us to Lobuche (4,940m/16,210ft). Serving as a crossroads for trekkers heading to the Gokyo Lakes it makes for the perfect place to overnight, as the next day we’ll be reaching Everest Base Camp! It’s a short trek to Gorakshep (5,164m/16,942ft). Following a part of the Khumbu moraine, we ascend gradually up until reaching the village. After checking in to the local tea house and dropping off heavier gear, we head out for EBC! The trail is quite wide and follows the Khumbu Glacier. The world’s highest and longest glacier. It’ll take about 2 hours to reach Everest Base Camp and the feeling is just incredible. A wave of accomplishment hits once you see the colored tents of the base camp come into view. We spend some time exploring around and making some memorable memories before heading back to Gorakshep. It’s important to get a quick sleep as the next day we hike up to Kala Patthar hill in the early morning.

With our head torches and flashlights, we head out in the morning. It’ll still be dark so we make our way slowly up to the blackish hill just in time to see the sunrise rising Mt Everest and its neighbors. The view is really incredible and breathtaking. Enjoy the moment! After reaching back at Gorakshep and having enjoyed breakfast we’ll be heading back down making our way slowly back to Lukla. We stop at Pheriche, and back at Namche Bazaar for overnights before reaching back at Lukla airport. It is customary to hold a celebration party in Lukla with the team but completely optional. As the next day we fly back to Kathmandu to conclude Beyond the Limits 14 days Everest Base Camp trek.
