We see breathtaking mountain views, get a look into the lives of world-famous mountain climbers (the Sherpas), visit Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and visit high-altitude Buddhist temples on our Everest Base Camp 16 Days Trek. Tengboche monastery, among others, holds sacred significance for Buddhists. A night or two in Namche Bazaar is recommended for proper acclimatization and a pleasant climbing experience.
Trekking to Nepal's Everest Base Camp also gives us the opportunity to join Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on a historic trip that began in 1953. On an adventurous trek package that also involves ascending Kala Patthar to admire the views, our Sherpa will lead us to the base camp of the world's tallest mountain, Everest.
The Everest Base Camp 16 Days trek itinerary is intended for novice trekkers in excellent health and with average physical fitness. We are sufficiently acclimatized to fully enjoy our walk to Everest base camp due to the ample distance covered between daily itineraries, consistent gain of altitude, and distinct rest days. Altitude sickness can be avoided by walking at high altitude routes with good acclimatization and a steady pace.

Overnight in Kathmandu.
Take an early morning flight from Kathmandu airport to Lukla. The flight is a scenic Himalayan panoramic flight to the gorgeous mountain town of Lukla, the gateway to Everest trekking. After landing at the Lukla airport, take some time to prepare for the walk of the day. Start the trek for the day today to Phakding, a beautiful town on the bank on the Dudhkoshi River. Approximately four hours of gentle walking on the Everest trail takes you to Phakding to spend overnight at a tea house.
After taking breakfast at the tea house, you start the trek to the astounding Sherpa town of Namche today. The walk today is mostly uphill making you cover a good distance of elevation. You will come across lots of yaks, Buddhist prayer flags, and many trekking adventurers like you, and several other beautiful things. Once you arrive at Namche, you praise the charm of the town and the Himalayan view from there more. Check into a hotel and relax.
Already at an elevation of 3,440 meters above sea level, you need to acclimatize with the high altitude atmosphere. Thus it is an extra day at Namche to acclimatize doing some uphill side hikes around Syangboche Airstrip, Everest view Hotel, and Khumjung Village.Enjoy the view of Mt.Everest and other mountains from the Everest View point. Once you return back to Namche from the hike, you will have some time to explore the charming town of Namche as well.
Leave Namche early morning after breakfast. It is a beautiful walk up to Tengboche, the monastic village in the Everest base camp trekking trail. On the way to Tengboche, experience some of the spectacular views around. Once you reach Tengboche and check into an est house, go and explore the monastery, learn about Tibetan Buddhism.
The trail descends to Deboche a small village with Chortens and Mani stone walls and nun monastery. Cross suspension bridge over Imja Khola (Imja Strasm) and gradually ascend to Pangboche with the towering view of Ama Dablam (most beautiful mountain in Everest region) Trail follows upstream closer to Imja River fairly moderate up toward Imja valley. The trail fairly seen open to the confluence of Lobuche river and begin last part of the day to Dingboche the last Sherpa settlement with the beautiful terraced field enclosed by a stone wall to avoid barley, buckwheat, and potatoes from the cold wind and grazing animals.
This second scheduled rest day will assist your fitness and oxygen intake at the higher altitudes to follow. An enjoyable 3-4hr, 400m climb to Nangkartshang Gompa, north of Dingboche affords views of Makalu (8,463m) the fifth highest mountain, and awesome views of Ama Dablam and the valley floor.
The trail climbs to a ridge and view of Taboche and Cholatse. Continue through yak pastures to a wooden bridge and Duglha (4,620m.). The trail then ascend steeply for an hour up the gravely terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. On the summit is a large group of stone-pile memorials to lost Sherpa and climbers. It also affords great border views including Khumbutse, Lingtren and Pumori. Everest is hidden behind the towering Nuptse, Lhotse wall. Follow the valley upstream for an hour to Lobuche.
Start the walk for the day to Gorakshep after breakfast. The walk goes along the Khumbu glacier, the highest glacier in the world, and Changri glacier. Once you reach Gorakshep, check into a guest house and have your lunch before you hike to Everest Base Camp. Walk to the base camp of the highest mountain in the world and enjoy your moments there for a while and return back to Gorakshep.
A very early climb of 2-3 hours up Kala Patthar, behind the village, offers a sunrise awakening of the Himalayan chain. First Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), then its surrounding vassals: Pumori (7,145m/23,443ft), Lingtren (6,697m/21, 973ft), Khumbutse (6,623m/21,730ft), Changtse (7,550m/24,772ft), Lhotse (8,516m/27,941ft) and Nuptse (7,861m/25,792ft). Plus Cho Oyo (8,201m/26,907ft) in the west and Ama Dablam to the south: amidst countless other peaks that crowd the horizon in all directions. Drop back to Gorak Shep for breakfast; then retrace your steps to Lobuche. Return to the snout of the Khumbu glacier, dropping down the moraine and continuing on to the village of Pheriche for a lower and warmer night.
Today is a comparatively short day after the rigors of the previous few days, and we can now look forward to a fall in height and easier walking as we retrace our ascent route. Now that the difficult portion is over, you may relax and focus on the features of mountain living that you may have neglected on the trip up.
We cross the Khumbu Khola River from Pheriche and climb a short steep trek to the top of a tiny ridge for spectacular views of Imja Valley, Ama Dablam, and Kantega. We then descend to the little communities of Orsho and Shomare before crossing through Lower Pangboche on our way to the Imja Khola River suspension bridge and ascending to our destination.
Begin your trek early after breakfast. Take a descent to the Imjatse River, then a steep climb for about an hour will take you to Sanasa. From there on, the winding path takes you to Namche Bazaar. Have your lunch in one of the finer restaurants in Namche.
Looking back at the village and Mt. Everest in the backdrop, you will move on through the rugged trail towards a lush green forest. You might have the chance of coming across musk deer, Himalayan Thar or even the rare red panda. Tourists have often shared the experience of witnessing Blood Pheasant and Impeyan Pheasant. The route then takes a steep descent to the Dudh Koshi River. Cross the river via a suspension bridge towards Jorsale. It is the buffer zone of Sagarmatha National Park. You will further walk south towards Monjo Village.
Monjo is a small village known best for being the checkpoint or the entrance gate of the national park. There are many guesthouses and tea houses in this area. The stone houses roofed by tin tops and wooden windows take you back in time.
Today is your final walking day.After breakfast, you will bid goodbye to the lovely locals and then head on the Dudh Koshi River trail. There is a descent in the first leg of the trek to Benkar.
