Best Time For 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary
Although you can hike to Everest Base Camp at any time of year. But specific seasons are perfect for seeing the best of the Everest region. The perfect time to embark on this journey is from October to November and March to May. During this season you can see the crystal clear view of towering mountains with a clear sky. The trees and plants become green in the autumn. And floras like rhododendron and oak are likely to bloom making the pathways more colorful in the spring.
The flights to Lukla play a vital role in reaching the base camp of mount Everest. Flights may be often canceled due to inclement weather and poor visibility in the monsoon. If you want to know more about the best time for EBC Trek click here.
How long is the Everest base camp trek?
The Everest base camp is the world’s most renowned and adventurous trip. Mount Everest base camp is at 17,598 feet (5,364m) above sea level.
Nevertheless, Everest base camp is a high-altitude and requires an extended period of acclimatization. The 80-mile (130-km) circuit that departs from Lukla normally takes 12–14 days of intense trekking. If you do not have enough time to discover the EBC then you can hire a helicopter, but this trip will cost you more money.
You may find it challenging to trek at a high altitude for the first time, so you should prepare for exhaustion and shortness of breath. However, you’ll be pleasantly delighted by the stunning mountain vistas, which will make your struggles worthwhile.
Normally, you have to walk about 12-15 kilometers (7 miles) in a day. Our 15-days EBC trek package is also available if you want to spend more time in outdoors and savor the grandeur of the Everest region.

Your guide will come to meet you at your hotel and give a brief about your EBC trip. In the evening, we offer typical Nepalese cuisine welcome dinner along with a cultural dance show.
Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding.
Early in the morning, our guide will pick you up from the hotel and drive you to the airport in Kathmandu, where you will catch a flight to Lukla (2840m/9320 ft), the gateway to the Everest Region. Your guide will give you a briefing when you land on a steep mountain runway and meet the rest of the team ( if you have booked porters) before we start our trek to Phakding (2,610 m/8560 ft).
Before reaching Phakding, we start our trek by descending Dudh Koshi, passing through some prominent villages including Chaurikharka, Chhaplung (2660m), and Ghat (2590m). During the hike, be mesmerized by the magnificent Himalayan views as well as the prayer wheels, religious artwork, chorten, and Mani walls (inscribed with Buddhist mantras).
Trek to Namche Bazar
Today you’ll start a steady and steep incline towards Namche along the banks of the Dudh Koshi gorge, crossing a number of majestic rivers on the spectacular high suspension bridges festooned with prayer flags. On your way to Namche, pass the villages of Bengkar, Chumoa, Monjo (entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park), and Jorsale.
When you arrive at Namche, set up your accommodation and explore the area. Namche Bazar is a village built on a steep mountain bowl with stunning views of the high Himalayas on either side. You can get your first look at Mt. Everest, peering over the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. Namche will be your final opportunity to inspect your gear and hire any additional equipment for the high altitudes.
Rest day for acclimatization
This is your day to rest and acclimatize your body to allow for the new altitude. Acclimatization here is particularly important for the onward trek when you begin gaining height quickly.
Of course, acclimatization does not mean remaining in your hotel room only. There is much to explore around Namche and the great mountain views to cherish. There are many lodges, tea shops, and gift shops that you can go to. You can visit the visitor center next to the Sagarmatha National Park headquarters to see a variety of artifacts related to the earliest Everest climbers, learn about Sherpa culture, and see the varied flora and fauna of the park.
You can trek to the Everest View Hotel, which is above Namche, from where you can get fantastic views of Mount Everest and other Himalayan mountains.
Trek to Tengboche
After having breakfast, we leave for Tengboche. The trail goes up and down offering us a mind-blowing first view of the Khumbu region’s giant peaks: Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Ama Dablam. Pass via a number of villages and various tea shops before descending steeply to a bridge over the river at Phunki Tenga. Before beginning the difficult climb to Tengboche, the town makes a great stopover for lunch and a place to rest.
Tengboche Monastery ( the most important and sacred monastery in the region) is a charming location developed around the main Tibetan monastery in the area where you can enter and hear the monks chanting in the morning and evening.
Trek to Dingboche
After breakfast, we will leave for Dingboche. In addition, before you go on today’s excursion, give yourself some extra time to soak in the surroundings of Tengboche Monastery. In the early morning light, the monastery appears even more stunning against the backdrop of mountains.
Begin your day’s adventure by strolling down to Imja Khola. You will travel to the village of Pangboche by crossing the turbulent Imja Khola over a steel box bridge. There are many fields, summer settlements, and majestic mountain views along this beautiful journey. You will finally reach the sprawling settlement of Dingboche after a few hours of walking, where you will spend your two nights since we must do a second acclimatization day.
Dingboche is a small hamlet that contains arguably the largest collection of homes near the Everest base camp, with a lot of upscale eateries and friendly locals. When you arrive, you’ll encounter a beautiful collection of fields that are surrounded by stone walls to keep out grazing animals and chilly winds so that the potatoes, buckwheat, and barley may grow. Yak herders frequently use the meadows in the summer valley of Dingboche to graze their herds of yaks.
Another rest day for acclimatization
Today is another rest and acclimatization day at Dingboche after Namche. It’s important to acclimatize your body to adapt to the changing altitudes and the rising elevation because there is an increased risk of altitude sickness at higher elevations.
A blue sky with scattered clouds greets us as we awake. Soak in the panorama of Ama Dablam mountain, which rises to 6856 meters (22,493 feet), as you eat breakfast. After having a delicious breakfast in the teahouse You will go out from Dingboche to hike up Nagarjuna Hill, which has a height of 5100 meters.
A fantastic way to spend time at a Dingboche is to hike to Nagarjuna Hill. Ngarjuna was located on a hilltop at the edge of the Chukkung Valley, above Dingboche. There, you can enjoy the panoramic vistas of Ama Dablam (6610m), Thamserku (6608m), Kantega (6685m), Lobuche East (6119m), and Lobuche West (6145m). You can witness the marvelous view of the Pheriche Valley from Nagarjuna Hill.
Alternately, you can go out on a hike in the direction of Chukhung Ri (4750m) or the beautiful Nangkartshang peak (5,083 m). This trail climbs to an island summit with impressive vistas of the massive Himalayas.
We will descend Nagarjuna Hill gradually and return to the hotel where we will have lunch, relax, and have some fun before preparing for our journey to Lobuche the next day.
Trek to Lobuche
Leaving Dingboche behind, the trail descends to the broad terrace above the Khumbu Valley. We’ll begin a moderate climb to Dughla, where we’ll have a little break for lunch. The trek goes along the beautiful mountain views of Ama Dablam, and to the north, Pokalde (5,741m), Kongma-Tse (5,820m), and the great wall of Nuptse.
A western volunteer doctor stationed here and sponsored by the Himalayan Rescue Association provides care and advice to trekkers that use this route. As you move forward, the landscape transforms from dense forests to sparsely dotted shrubs. After a further walk, we will reach Lobuche village, situated at the foot of Mt. Lobuche (6,119m), where you will be spending your night.
Trek to Gorakshep and visit Everest Base Camp
Today we begin our journey with the hum of pre-expedition vigor. You’ll get up early and leave Lobuche, walking over the rocky path to see the breathtaking panorama of glacial ponds and icebergs. As the early sun lights the valley’s base, the entire valley will gradually begin to glow with golden light.
We ascend through meadows and moraine stone stairs via the Khumbu Glacier until we reach Gorakshep. You will have your lunch at Gorakshep before proceeding to EBC. After a long day at a high altitude, we finally reached Everest Base Camp. Stop to snap pictures and unwind at the world-renowned peak for all summit expeditions. You’ll return to Gorak Shep, where you’ll spend the night, after taking some time to enjoy your surroundings and stroll through the camps.
Hike to Kalapather view point and trek back to Pheriche
As scheduled, we start our journey early in the morning, after about two hours of ascent, we reach Kala Patthar. If you brave the ascent to the Kalapatthar summit, often known as the “black rock,” You will be rewarded with unrivaled vistas of the entire Khumbu Glacier below you and a 360-degree panorama of Mt. Everest and other peaks.
Kala Patthar is decorated with prayer flags and cairns and has a small stupa and weather station at its summit, where you are surrounded by glaciers and incredible panoramic views of the mountains that include Pumori, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam, Taweche, Everest and Kantega. We have breakfast back at Gorekshep and are ready to rest after a long but unforgettable day. We descend to Pheriche for a well-earned rest.
Trek to Namche
After an overnight at Pheriche, continue your journey downhill, blanketed by rhododendrons and juniper trees, and keep a lookout for wildlife such as colorful pheasants, mountain goats, and snow leopards, etc.
You will pass the Dudh Koshi bridge to Phunki Tenga, where you can see the Buddhist prayer wheels that are driven by water. You’ll head down to the base of the valley before reaching Namche Bazaar. Stay overnight at Namche.
Trek back to Lukla
Your adventure on our EBC trek comes to an end today. The Dudhi Koshi River is followed all the way down to Lukla, where you’ll spend your final night in the Himalayas. We need to walk carefully as our worn-out legs continually battle the rocky ground as the trail descends steeply.
You can explore Lukla Bazaar and shop for local items as a gift for your family and friends there, celebrate your successful and safe trek with your crew, and learn some Sherpa dance steps during the farewell party.
Fly back to Kathmandu
Early in the morning, we leave Tenzing-Hillary airport, boarding a scenic 35-minute flight back to Kathmandu. As we soar above the sky and take in the captivating vista of the Khumbu region, we’ll be carrying an unforgettable and fruitful voyage to the EBC.

In October 2019, I trekked to Mount Everest Base Camp with my colleagues. The trek was enjoyable as well as challenging. Around Gora Shep and when climbing Kala Pathar, the altitude above 5000 meters made it difficult for me. The entire hike was amazing, and I relished every second of it.
I have to mention the organization that put everything together; it was the Glorious Himalaya Team, a tiny but highly competent local tour operator you can trust. The guide was very competent, and both guide and the company management showed leadership qualities when one of our team members needed an emergency airlift from Gorakshep. I truly appreciate the support of Glorious Himalaya company for this wonderful trip. I’ll be visiting Nepal soon!
