A singular voyage for those who have the time to really savor Nepal, this is a trek that immerses you in the authentic Nepalese experience. The longer, less-conventional route to the Everest Base Camp via Jiri involves less-crowded lodges, breathtaking landscapes rarely seen by tourists, and close interaction with the wonderful, welcoming locals. Most trekkers fly to Lukla, but we’ll set off on foot from Jiri, following in the footsteps of the first successful expedition to Everest! Savor the sight of deep, lovely forests, Buddhist temples, and Sherpa villages. This lengthier itinerary involves more walking, but also affords more time for slow, steady acclimatization. We start out around 1,860m above sea level and trek all the way to the Everest Base Camp, then follow the classic route down the mountain, finishing in Lukla.

Day 1- Kathmandu: Arrival Day

Welcome to Nepal! A representative will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel. Once you’ve settled in, we’ll introduce you to your trekking guide. This is an exciting moment - you’ll be seeing a lot of each other over the next three weeks, and our guides consistently get excellent reviews. On this, your first evening, we’ll go over some last-minute details over dinner.

Day 2 - Kathmandu to Jiri

A local bus will drive us to Jiri today, after breakfast. It’s an eight or nine hour drive, so it’ll be late in the day by the time we arrive at our teahouse. We aren’t trekking in earnest yet, but there are some great views as the landscape outside rolls by. Expect a final briefing with dinner, and then it’s off to sleep: our adventure kicks off in the morning!

Day 3 - Jiri to Bhandar

There's nothing like kicking things off with a bang, and that's how we'll be starting this trek! The ascent to the schoolhouse at Sangbadanda is a steep one, but there are cold drinks and a bit of rest waiting at the top. After, we’ll follow the muddy trail to Deurali before stopping to dine with the Sherpas again for lunch. The afternoon will see us cross local Buddhist villages, finally stopping for the night in Bhandar.

Day 4 - Bhandar to Sete

It's downhill to Dokharpa after breakfast, through a valley to Likhu Khola, and finally to Kinja for lunch. We’ll stretch our legs with a steep climb to Lamjura, and then an almost-vertical slope to Chimbu! Sete is nearby, and will be a welcome sight after an arduous day of climbing!

Day 5 - Sete to Lamjura Pass, Junbesi

Hopefully you got some rest last night, as we have another bracing day ahead! The climb to Lamjura Pass is steep and difficult, but the extraordinary loveliness of the scenery makes it worthwhile: there are gorgeous jungles of maple and rhododendron, all dotted with fragrant magnolias. We’ll get a bit of a respite as we descend to Dagchu, which is between two ponds, and then we are back up again, going through Goyom on the way to Junbesi. Hear that roar overhead? Could be the planes headed to Lukla, a major starting point for many Himalayan treks.

Day 6 - Junbesi: Acclimatization

It has been a rough several days; time to take an extended break. We’ll stay over in Junbesi today to adjust to the higher altitude and rest up for the next leg of the journey! If you are feeling up to it, the nearby Tashi Thongmom Gompa makes a fascinating day trip with plenty of historic interest. As a bonus, the trail to the monastery winds by Junbesi Secondary School, which is among the largest in this area.

Day 7- Junbesi to Nunthala

We're back on the road again! We cross the Junbesi Khola this morning as we exit the village, heading towards Khumbu via an uphill trail. You'll temporarily wonder if we accidentally teleported to Europe, as the deep pine forests and rustic cow pastures are a real novelty! From Phurteng, where we stop for lunch, we’ll glimpse Everest for the first time, along with the peaks of Mera and Kantega as well. The afternoon will see is wend through shepherd’s huts and forest scenery en route to Nunthala.

Day 8 - Nunthala to Bupsa

We'll follow the English Milk River to Dudh Kosi as a new day begins, descending through farmland and forest trails to Phuleli and our morning break. We’ll then cross the river and trek alongside several crop fields (maize, barley, and wheat) before arriving in Jubing. We’ll follow the crop terraces uphill towards Bupsa, hiking through an oak forest before making our arrival.

Day 9 - Bupsa to Lukla

We start out in the direction of Surkhe, climbing through the forest landscape before hitting the Sherpa village of Kharte. After that, we'll scale the Khari La Pass, passing the caves that porters occasionally use to rest on the way to Lukla. Another extended trek brings us to Surkhe, and finally the trekking hub of Lukla.

Day 10 - Lukla to Phakding

We'll kick things off today with an easy walk through Chaurikharka village and descent towards Dudhkoshi Ghat. The trail follows the bank of the Dudhkoshi River until Phakding, a popular stopping point. We're a bit lower than Lukla at this point, all the better to acclimatize. Enjoy a bit of free time in Phakding, and then rest up!

Day 11 - Phakding to Namche Bazaar

We'll have breakfast in Phakding before gearing up for the trek to Namche, the biggest sherpa village in Nepal. Our trail takes us first over the Dudhkoshi River via a long suspension bridge, and then through a beautiful pine forest to Monjo, about two hours away. Soon thereafter, we will approach the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park for a brief permit check and then descend to Dudh Kosi River (spotting Mani stones along the way!) en route to Jorsale. Lunch will be served here, and then it's uphill to Namche. Our path along the riverbank is flanked by two crossings, one of which is the Hillary Suspension Bridge. It’s a tough climb up the hill to our resting place, but you'll be rewarded in Namche Bazaar with another glimpse of Everest in its majesty.

Day 12 - Namche Bazaar: Acclimatization

At this point, we take a well-deserved break! Today will be spent resting and allowing our bodies to become acclimatized to the lofty altitude. Spend the day exploring Namche Bazaar. Check out the Sherpa museum for an overview of the Sherpa culture and history of mountaineering. On Saturdays, the Hatt Bazaar is open for trading and an intimate look at the locals’ marketplace. It is part of the larger Namche Bazaar, a shopping hub filled with all manner of trekking and mountaineering clothing and equipment.

Day 13 - Namche Bazaar to Tengboche

Breakfast in Namche Bazaar fuels us for another day of trekking towards Everest Base Camp today! Breaktaking views of the Himalayas - Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Kwangde - are some of the highlights not be missed. A short drop takes us to the riverside, then it’s across the river upwards through the forest pass. Brace your legs for a continual uphill trek at this point, alternating between a gradual grade and some seriously steep ground! Our destination, Tengboche, is known as one of the most beautiful places in the Everest region. Its views, which include Ama Dablam, are legendary. We’ll stop in on the Tengboche monastery, which is one of the largest in Khumbu. Nourish your spirit with a guided tour of the monastery grounds, followed by chanting and prayer with the resident Buddhist monks.

Day 14 - Tengboche to Dingboche

Our trek today kicks off with a walk through the rhododendron forest to Deboche followed by a bridge over the raging Imja Khol River. We’ll pass the valley wall and then traverse the plains to Pangboche village, the biggest settlement of Sherpas in the region. Enjoy a great opportunity to observe a typical Sherpa village and have lunch with the locals! The intrepid can brave a brief hike to the Pangboche monastery, one of the oldest in the area. Our afternoon trek will be a difficult one, as the landscape gives way to dry, deserted mountains and we hike towards Dingboche. At this point, we’ve been trekking for two weeks - be proud of yourself!

Day 15 - Dingboche: Acclimatization

This is your chance to rest up before the last leg of our adventure! Savor a full day of exploring Dingboche and the surrounding valleys of Chhukung and Imja, the latter of which links with Island Peak, the high passes of Amphu Laptsa, and Makalu Barun National Park. Taking an optional trek to the valleys will pay off in rewarding views, but taking it easy is the most important thing today. You'll need your rest for the penultimate day of ascent tomorrow.

Day 16 - Dingboche to Lobuche

From here on forth, the trek will move more gradually be more challenging, due to the higher altitude. We’ll pass Dungla, but not before a tough, steep walk to the top of a high hill. Here are the memorial stupas dedicated to the climbers and trekkers who lost their lives to Everest over the years. The next part of our adventure brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche, a small settlement with amazing views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumari and the Nuptse. Prepare to snuggle up for a cold night, as we are now almost three miles above sea level and the evenings can be downright chilly!

Day 17 - Lobuche to Gorakshep, EBC & EBC to Gorakshep

This is it! Our big day kicks off with an initial, relatively easy trek from Lobuche to Gorekshep. The subsequent, straight trail to Everest Base Camp is harder, involving rocky dunes and moraine, formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris. On the way to our destination, we'll approach the famed Khumbu Glacier and icefall, located on the slopes of Everest. At the Base Camp, our goal, you'll have the chance (during the spring climbing season) to meet climbers attempting to scale the mountain’s summit. Break out your cameras for unbelievable views of breathtaking beauty. As the afternoon sun starts to wane, we'll head back to Gorekshep for some much-needed rest and relaxation after a grueling and busy day.

Day 18 - Gorekshep to Kalapathar, Pheriche

We'll wake before dawn today to trek towards Kalapathar (which means "black rock") for a fiery, glorious sunrise over Mt. Everest. The day's first light will illuminate your spectacular view of Nuptse Nup, Changtse and Lhotse.This may be, of the whole journey, your most opportune moment to snap amazing pictures of Everest and its neighboring peaks. Afterwards, it's back to Gorekshep for breakfast and down in the direction of Pheriche, our nighttime stop. Our pace will be a lot brisker as we descend, and the walking is easier going this way.

Day 19 - Pheriche to Namche Bazaar

The walk from Pheriche back to Tengboche is mainly downhill, although it does, counterintuitively, require an hour scaling a hill. We'll be in Namche by late afternoon and off to bed before our last day on the mountain.

Day 20 - Namche to Phakding, Lukla

After breakfast, we trek toward the Hillary Suspension Bridge and then pass through several local villages. Our arrival in Lukla brings an evening in a proper hotel and, traditionally, a party with your trekking crew: you made it! Thanks to great teamwork and perseverance, you’ve accomplished a physical feat of which others only dream. This is your last night on the mountain, which can be bittersweet.

Day 21 - Lukla to Kathmandu

In the morning, you'll hop a brief flight from Lukla to Kathmandu, where your journey both began and ends. You'll transfer to your hotel upon landing for some much-needed solo rest and reflection after your trek conquering the Himalayas. We'll reunite in the evening for a farewell dinner at one of the best Nepalese restaurants in town, where we’ll be eager to hear your feedback on the trip.

Day 22 - Kathmandu: Departure Day

It's your last day in Nepal! Grab some breakfast, and then take in some last-minute shopping in Kathmandu. We'll make sure you arrive at Kathmandu International Airport with plenty time before your flight home. At this time, we'll say our goodbyes and bid you farewell, armed with warm memories and gorgeous photos to show your loved ones.

Travel Insurance

Proof of travel insurance is mandatory before starting the trek. Standard policies often only cover medical evacuation to 4000m so make sure the policy you get covers up to 6000m. We usually suggest World Nomads which costs around $125. You only need to be covered on the policy for the days you will actually be trekking.

Flight Delays in Lukla/Kathmandu

The flight between Kathmandu and Lukla where the trek starts is generally reliable but if the weather is bad all flights will be canceled for the day. In the event the flight is cancelled we will attempt to get you on a chartered helicopter but you are responsible for the extra costs in this event which can range from $150 to $500 or more depending on the number of people on the flight.

We schedule one extra day into the trek already as a buffer day in case of delays but as flights can at times be delayed for several days we suggest you add a couple of extra days at the end of your trip in case of any delays. Extra days should always be scheduled at the end of the trip and not the start.

    Extra Costs and Exclusions

  • Nepal entry visa ($40 USD).
  • Sleeping Bag Rental $12 and Down Jacket $12 if needed.
  • All the meals are included on the trek but we only include breakfast while you are in Kathmandu.
  • We suggest a tip for the guide and porter after the trek - Plan on a at least $80 (more will be appreciated).
  • We don't include drinking water on the trek which you can buy a number of places for between $1 and $3 a bottle (it gets more expensive towards base camp). A better solution is to buy water tablets in Kathmandu for around $2 and treat the water (your guide can help you find the good places to fill your water bottle).
  • The other things not included on the trek are like Wifi, charging batteries and hot showers. Wifi is available in some tea houses for $3 to $5 an hour. Hot Showers are also available in a few for around $4 and charging costs about $1.50 an hour.
  • Unforeseen cost due to flight cancellation, weather conditions etc. You are responsible for extra hotel nights ($30/night) and meals in Kathmandu for any extra days in Nepal due to flight delays.

If you are a solo travelers and planning and not joining one of our group treks you will be charged an extra $10 a day for a porter.

Cancellation Policies

FAQ

The basics

What is trekking?

Trekking is an adventure! For the uninitiated, this active pursuit involves lengthy, multi-day walks and climbs on village and park trails. The terrain is usually fairly steep, and we will likely encounter snow at higher altitudes (those above 5,500m/18,000ft).

Is trekking for me?

We like to think trekking is for everyone who is physically fit, patient, and loves the outdoors.

Why is a guide necessarily? I've trekked/hiked/camped before - can't I guide myself?

You'll be traveling through wilderness, remote countryside, and high elevations. Trekking with a guide is not only safer but it will make for a more enjoyable trek. Our guides are experts in Himalayan treks and have on average over 10 years trekking experience. While the trails in the Everest and Annapurna Regions are generally well defined in other parts of the Himalayas they can be confusing and very few locals speak English. No matter how confident you feel in your skills or knowledge, it is almost certain that we can help enhance your experience.

Who can go?

Are there any age limits for Himalayan trekking?

We have had families with kids as young as 7 years do the Everest Base Camp Trek and our eldest trekkers have been in their late 70s. There’s no limit on our adventures, as long as participants are healthy and willing! We generally suggest that families schedule a few extra days for the trek.

How difficult is trekking?

It depends on the specific trek, and, to some extent, on the preferences of those trekking. We offer all sorts of treks, ranging from easy to difficult.

Is previous trekking experience really necessary?

In theory, no. Anyone with robust cardiovascular capability and good stamina should be able to cope with higher elevations and lower oxygen density. Trekking or hiking experience anywhere in the world is strongly recommended for maximum enjoyment of your Himalayan adventure, however.

Preparation

What should I pack for my trip?

We have a complete downladable packing list or if you want more details visit our blog post on packing for Everest Base Camp.

What type of insurance should I have? Where can I obtain a policy?

Travel insurance is mandatory and obtaining for the days you are trekking is your responsibility. We suggest World Nomads as it covers Helicopter and medical evacuation up to 6000m. Some standard policies only cover up to 4000 meters for evacuation so please confirm with your insurance company if you purchase it from another company. If you get to Nepal and don't have insurance already we can help you purchase it for a reasonable price before you start the trek.

What's the best time of year to book a trek in Nepal?

The best times for trekking the Himalayas are February to May, and then September to December. Unless you are trekking in rain shadow areas such as the Upper Mustang, trekking during monsoon season is going to be a very wet event. Winter isn’t the optimal trekking season either, as very cold temperatures and heavy snowfall may impede crossings of high passes (treks that maintain lower elevations are accessible year-round).

Are any permits required for trekking?

Again, it depends on your specific trek. Some trekking areas require a special permit for trekking, while as others require only permits to enter conservation or national parks. Most require a Trekking Information Management System (TIMS) card. We handle all permits for you, so you have one less thing to worry about!

About the trek

How long do treks last?

Most of our Himalayan treks range from two to four weeks.

How long do we spend walking each day?

Trekkers generally walk four to six hours a day. That's between five and fifteen kilometers depending on trail conditions and the state of the weather.

Room and board

What kinds of accommodations will we utilize?

Unless you signed up for a camping trip specifically, most treks include lodge or guest house accommodation. A small minority of trekking areas may not have lodges available, and accommodation in these places will involve sleeping in tents.

What is teahouse trekking?

Teahouse trekking is a type of accommodation unique to mountain treks, in which lodging and meals are set up at local teahouses or lodges on a full-board basis.

What is camping trekking?

Camping trekking involves sleeping in tents. We provide you with full board on these treks, with meals being prepared by professional trekking cooks in a mobile camp equipped with a kitchen and adequate support staff.

Where will our drinking water come from?

Bottled water is available everywhere on established trekking routes, and most villages on the way will have locally-purified water as well. The teahouses or camping crew will supply boiled water for drinking.

Where do we eat our meals?

The most frequently-traveled Himalayan circuits feature lodges and guesthouses. Continental menus are generally available, along with soups and dishes of noodles or rice. Other routes will include more limited choices. On the most remote routes, only traditional dal bhat, curry, or instant noodle soups will be available.

Health and safety

What physical criteria will ensure I'm fit enough to trek?

Good overall fitness, flexibility, and healthy will ensure you trek safely and comfortably. Those with acute or chronic health conditions impacting their stamina, range of motion, coordination, or balance may have difficulty completing the trek. If you are in doubt about your own physical readiness, consult a physician well in advance of booking your trip! General hiking experience and comfort with the idea of multi-day hiking will also ensure you are 100% ready to trek!

How will we deal with altitude acclimation?

At higher altitudes - the kind we experience frequently on our treks- your cardiac and pulmonary systems are affected by lower oxygen density. Our bodies must adjust to the mountain elevation gradually, or we can become ill. Physical symptoms can range from general breathing difficulties all the way to acute mountain sickness (altitude sickness, soroche, or "the bends"). To avoid altitude-related maladies, we pace our treks appropriately and incorporate acclimatization days throughout the itinerary. There are points throughout many treks during which trekkers may choose to either tackle additional hikes/day trips or rest and relax as their bodies demand.

What do I need to know about sun protection?

It may seem counter-intuitive, but your skin is in more danger of sun damage on the mountains than while at the beach! The sun’s intensity increases dramatically as we rise in altitude, and fresh snow reflects exponentially more UV rays than does the sand. You will need to protect your skin with clothing and sunblock. A sunblock specifically for mountain conditions is recommended. If you wear prescription eyeglasses its recommend that you get your prescription fitted to sunglasses.

What happens if I get sick or injured while trekking?

We take all possible precautions to proactively ensure the safety and wellness of our trekkers, but rest assured that our guides are trained and experienced in dealing with emergencies. Each guide is trained in first aid. In the case of altitude sickness, you will immediately be taken to a lower altitude. If necessary, your guide will utilize your travel insurance information to call a rescue helicopter, and you will be flown to Kathmandu or Pokhara for medical attention.

Are solo female travelers safe on Himalayan treks?

We ensure the travel safety of all our trekking guests, both male and female. Nepal, on the whole, is both very safe and welcoming of foreign visitors. We have longstanding, strong relationships with the lodges we frequent, and know them to be safe and reliable. In addition our guides are consistently mindful of all guests' whereabouts while trekking. We travel in small groups, all the better to easily maintain continual contact.

Practical matters

What happens if the flight from Lukla or Kathmandu is delayed?

The flights between Kathmandu and Lukla are generally reliable but if the weather is not good they can be canceled for the entire day. Our 14 day package includes one buffer day in case of delays but we suggest that you schedule a couple of extra additional days in case of delays at the end of your trek. If your flight is delayed in Kathmandu we will rebook your flight for the next day. We may also be able to provide an option for a privately chartered helicopter. If you choose to take the helicopter this can cost an additional $150 to $500 or more depending on availability and group size. Extra hotel nights ($30) and meals in Kathmandu are not included when flights are delayed although we will make arrangements for you. If your flight is delayed in Lukla we will provide the accommodation and meals in the cost.

What should I pack?

Your specific trek and the time of year during which you depart will greatly impact your packing list. A recommended outline of clothing and equipment is listed with each trek. In general, a down jacket, a warm fleece jacket, thermal underwear, trekking pants and shorts, and sturdy boots are recommended to wear, and a thermal sleeping bag, backpack, and camera are recommended for your kit. If you take any medication, this should obviously be a packing priority. Utilize common sense - you don't want to end up short-handed on the mountain, but overpacking is undesirable. It's worth noting that just about anything you need in the way of trekking clothing and/or equipment can be purchased or rented in Kathmandu when you first arrive.

What sort of footwear is recommended?

Comfortable, sturdy trekking shoes or boots are a must. Ideally your footwear will have Gore-Tex or similar lining, along with thick soles. This will ensure that your feet stay warm and dry, and that you are comfortable walking on rocky paths. Wool socks are recommended instead of cotton, and these too should be thick and warm.

How much can a porter carry?

Porters' ability to carry baggage depends to some extent on the trekking route and altitude in question, but the average trekking porter carries between 15 and 25kg. A camping porter carries up to 40kg. One porter is typically assigned per every two travelers.

Should I tip my guide? How about my porter?

While not mandatory, tipping is customary and always appreciated in Nepal and on our treks. Your guides and porters will tremendously appreciate a small gratuity at the end of your trek, as these little extras go a long way towards helping their families. Tipping is a great way to show your appreciation for the team's hard work and devoted attention to your happiness.

How much money should I bring along?

Our treks are all-inclusive. We cover accommodation, food, park fees, permits, and many other costs, as a means of making your adventure as stress-free and convenient as possible.. Travelers generally bring a small amount of pocket money to cover bottled water, snacks, or tea beyond your included meals, souvenirs, tips, or donations to monasteries along the route (if you are inclined to give one). Trekkers find that around $20 a day is reasonable for these extras.

What communication options exist while trekking?

It varies. Mobile coverage is listexpanding around the world rapidly, and the Himalayas are no different… did you know that 3G coverage is available all over Mount Everest? There is no guarantee of uninterrupted coverage, however. Most trekking routes feature local VHF phones, but on the more remote trails, a satellite phone is the only option.

Do you have any extra charges for solo travelers?

We generally don't charge solo travelers any extra fees. Solo travelers can expect their own hotel room in Kathmandu but will need to share a room with other group members during the trek. If availability allows we will arrange private rooms on the trek as well upon request. If you are going solo and not joining one of our group treks you will be charged an extra $10 a day for a porter.

Can I get a refund if I don't finish the trek?

Its sometimes the case that trekkers finish ahead of schedule or they end up stopping the trek early for health or personal reasons. If this is the case please understand that we can not offer any refunds for unused days on the trek. Please understand that our costs are the same as we have an obligation to pay our guides and porters for the time they have committed.

What is your cancellation policy? How about other terms and conditions?
