Everest Base Camp Trek

At Namaste Nomad, we take great pride in our work and are firm of the belief that we offer the best quality trek to Everest Base Camp. All our tours are based on a
holistic approach, with a particular focus on health, wellbeing, safety, a good diet, comfortable lodges, and the best sherpas and guides.

Because our co-founder is from the Himalayas and is a very experienced sherpa, we can offer this trek for an extremely competitive price. We can do this
because we have all the necessary connections, without using commission agents or middlemen.

We also offer a unique high-quality service. We give breathing lessons every day, offer simple yoga, and by paying close attention to diet, according to people’s health and requirements, we aim to keep people safe from food poisoning or any altitude-related issues. We do not allow alcohol at high altitudes, and we don’t serve any dairy
or meat on the way up to Base Camp. This is because all meat comes from Kathmandu and has to be carried in by porters, open to the air. We have seen too many people from other companies falling sick and getting helicopter rescue. Some companies actually benefit from this as they are given a commission by the helicopter company.

For us, a successful trip is what matters. Our co-founder Mohan lives in Ireland – as an advocate of health and wellbeing and an experienced therapist, he makes client safety an absolute priority. Most of our sherpas have been to the top of Everest and our guides are all trained in first aid and hygiene. We aim to provide a decent living for our staff and their families and to give as many clients as possible the opportunity to experience the joy of trekking in such an amazing place.

What you get from this trek: Culture, adventure, nature, beautiful scenery, and the experience of a lifetime. Is this what you are looking for? Then come join us on our epic trip to Everest Base Camp. With its vibrant culture, a bustling capital, and the best trekking in the world, it’s easy to see why Nepal was voted by Lonely Planet as one of the top five countries to visit in 2020.

In this 18 day trip, you will trek for 12 to 13 days, through one of the lushest landscapes on earth, to a strikingly different world above the treeline where glistening peaks surround you. Trek with us to the base camp of Mount Everest at 5,380m (17,600 ft), with the chance of meeting climbers on either side of summiting. See for yourself the beauty of the majestic white peaks. Make your way into the stunning valleys over colorful prayer flags-laden suspension bridges. See and experience the vibrant Sherpa way of living. Trek through the beautiful scenery of Sagarmatha National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). And, finally, reach the base camp of the world’s highest mountain – Everest! Also included in this trip are four nights staying in the bustling city of Kathmandu where you’ll visit world-famous Hindu and Buddhist temples, taste the wonderful Nepali cuisine, get the opportunity to meet with our charity partners, and experience traditional Nepali cultural performances. This is your opportunity to not only trek through the majestic mountains of Nepal with like-minded people but to discover a new and fascinating culture and way of life. This journey is more than just about trekking, it changes people’s perception, their outlook on life and brings vibrancy and peacefulness to people’s lives on their return that no other trip can. The Nepalese people are very humble, grateful, and compassionate people, and being in their company is inspirational in itself.

Experience the peacefulness of the valleys, the calmness of the majestic mountains, and the opportunity to escape the busy lives we live in western society. This trip can be both physically and mentally challenging but with the assistance and expertise of our friendly staff, we can help you make your dream of trekking to Everest, the highest mountain in the world, come true. Come join us and we promise to make this the most fulfilling experience you have ever had.

NOTE: You don’t need to be an experienced trekker or climber to do this trek, but a good level of fitness is required.

You can this trek for charity as well. We are building one care centre in Himalayas for kind living in poverty you can raise and donate through his adventure. click here- http://gf.me/u/zmhjja

*If you bring a group of ten people or more, one person is free of cost.

Day 1: Arrival in Nepal

Arrive in Nepal (or meet with us if you’re there already). Relax at the hotel, have a welcome meal & talk, and enjoy our first night in Kathmandu.

Day 2: Kathmandu

Let’s start by getting to know the city: we go on a sightseeing tour of bustling Kathmandu visiting Durbar Square, Hindu temples and shrines, Buddhist stupas, and of course do a bit of shopping, picking up any last-minute essentials for our trek. We end the day with an evening of traditional Nepali cuisine & culture.

Day 3: The Lukla Flight

We’re off to Everest! We fly on a twin-engine Otter to Lukla, with an incredible view of the Himalayas. At Lukla, we meet the rest of our staff, sherpas, and porters and have a short briefing. Now we start our Everest trek! And two and a half hours later, after a delightfully easy initial downhill trek, we arrive at Phakding, spending the night in our first teahouse/lodge close to the gushing Kosi river. Hiking distance: 4.5 miles

Day 4: Wake up in the Himalayas

We wake up in the Himalayas! We continue trekking along the banks of the Dudh Kosi, crossing this majestic river many times on exciting suspension bridges laden with prayer flags. After entering Sagarmatha National Park, the trail climbs steeply with breathtaking views to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Khumbu region. Elevation: 3,440 meters. Hiking distance: 6 miles

Day 5: Acclimatization

Today is a rest and acclimatization day in beautiful Namche Bazaar. Namche is a unique horseshoe-shaped village (pictured above) with many wonderful and interesting shops and vendors, great food, and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. An early hike above town rewards us with a spectacular Himalayan sunrise and views of Mt. Everest. Elevation: 3,440 meters.

Day 6: Clean air

The trek continues along the rushing glacial waters of the Dudh Kosi with magnificent views of the mountains. We spend the night next to the Thyangboche monastery, the spiritual center of the Khumbu region, and take the opportunity of visiting the monks and watching their singing meditations. Elevation: 3,860m

Day 7: Breaking a sweat

From Thyangboche, the trail drops to Debuche crosses another exciting suspension bridge on the Imja Khola, and climbs to Pangboche past thousands of mani stones. Our uphill trek continues, taking us to the quaint traditional Sherpa village of Dingboche with its exquisite views of the high mountains, including Lhotse, Island Peak, and Ama Dablam. This is where all that training pays off! Elevation: 4,410 meters

Day 8: Dingboche

Today we take another rest and acclimatization day at Dingboche – a tiny village with a population of around 200. It’s here that Everest climbers sometimes come for medical attention. There is the option of taking a light hike up the valley for a wider variety of photos of the valley and mountains of the Khumbu region. Elevation: 4,410 meters

Day 9: Footsteps of the great

Today’s trail continues along the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier and passes by stone memorials for climbers who have perished on nearby summits. After a long and adrenaline-inducing trek, we arrive at the Eco-Lodge for hot showers and well-deserved warm meals. Elevation: 4,910 meters. Hiking distance: 5 miles

Day 10: Rise and shine

After an early morning start, we ascend Kala Pattar mountain (18,450 feet), from which we can enjoy unbelievable views of the Himalayas, without having to climb Everest! That evening we sleep beneath Kala Pattar at Gorak Shep. Elevation: 17,000 feet / 5,182 meters

Day 11: Everest

Today, after a relatively short but incredibly exciting trek, we reach our destination – Everest Base Camp! It’s located at the foot of the Khumbu Icefall, and we’ll spend some time there, giving you a chance maybe to meet some climbers and to thoroughly explore the area if the weather allows. We’ll return to Gorak Shep for the night. Elevation: 5,357 meters. Hiking distance: 2 miles

Day 12: Gorak Shep

In the morning we will enjoy tea and breakfast before our parting view of Everest and our descent. We head down the glacier and re-enter the lush and beautiful valleys,
surrounded by spectacular snow-capped peaks. Upon reaching the village of Pheriche, you may have the opportunity to visit the Himalayan Rescue Association’s Aid Post. Elevation: 4,252 meters. Hiking distance: 7.5 miles

Day 13: Descend

We continue back down the valley, below the tree line and through the rhododendron forest to Debuce, a quiet village with a Tibetan nunnery. Today will be a short hiking day with an afternoon to relax, shower, do laundry and prepare for the final day’s hiking. Elevation: 3,820 meters

Day 14: Namche

Today we trek back along the Dudh Kosi River through a magnificent rhododendron forest and past beautiful waterfalls. Shortly before reaching Namche, the trek takes us through a pine forest, where musk deer often graze in the early morning. Arriving in town, we may see lowland porters, highland Sherpas, and Tibetan people trading food and supplies at market-time. We stay at the Hotel with hot showers and a comfortable bed. Elevation: 3,440 meters. Hiking distance: 10 miles.

Day 15: Celebrate!

Trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla where we spend the night at the Khumbu Lodge. Hot showers are available and we have a celebratory night with the staff. Elevation: 2,840 meters.

Day 16: Back to the capital

If the weather is clear, the morning flight back to Kathmandu will be a scenic and smooth farewell to the mountains. We arrive in Kathmandu and we say goodbye to some of the staff. Elevation: 1,336 meters

Epic trip to Everest Base Camp.

Incredible trip! My wife and I came from the states to join Mohan and a bunch of wonderful Irish people on an island peak expedition. This was our first exposure to trekking in Nepal and technical mountaineering in general. We are rock climbers and hikers, but we trained extra hard the few months before the trip to develop good fitness and strong legs for long walks uphill. We met Mohan briefly while visiting Ireland a year earlier and felt instantly that we could trust him. Mohan is extremely experienced with trekking in the Himalayas (18yrs I think). He has connections every step of the way from hotels in Kathmandu, to flights to lukla, and in even in tea houses all along the route. This allows him to offer his clients fantastic service at a great price. Nice accommodations and food the whole time - everything is included in the cost up front so the only thing we had to think about was water which we just treated with chlorine tabs. Mohan gives great guidance to help avoid getting sick either from altitude or food. He demands good hygiene from kitchen staff and always sends his Sherpas into the kitchen to help and make sure our food is clean. The whole experience felt like a private trip with friends and not commercially organized. And really that's what it is - no middle man. Mohan genuinely cares about his clients and you will quickly become his friend. He will do everything he can to keep you healthy and acclimatized so you can have the best shot possible at meeting your goal. You won't have to worry about being confused the whole time - he keeps you well informed and is always checking to make sure you are doing well. He even coordinates with a guy in Kathmandu so they can make changes for summit attempts based on weather. Because he did this, we ended up summiting a day earlier than planned which made all the difference - I think nearly everyone failed the day before and the day after us due to snowfall, but we had 5 out of 8 summit in our group thanks to Mohan's leadership. Also if you do island peak - he won't make you walk from base camp to Chukkung after a 12-15 hr summit push, we met several people who after making it back to base camp still had a few hours of walking to get to a lodge and we really felt for them. His Sherpa staff is awesome and Mohan ensures they are well taken care of in addition to the porters/yaks. These Sherpas have more than adequate experience and are some of the kindest people you will ever meet. They even threw me a birthday party with a homemade cake along the way. They are fun, happy, and incredibly humble - always working hard to support their families. They deserve a good tip when the trip is over. Whatever you're looking for in a trek/climb - Mohan is your man. He'll work with you to make it happen. He is a friend for life now and I seriously recommend his guide services. Namaste!

What can I say about Namaste Nomads, just Excellent. From start to finish, everyone that we dealt with were helpful, professional, caring and accommodating in what we wanted for our adventure. Itinerary changes were no problems. The advice we were given before we flew out to Kathmandu and all through the trek were invaluble in making the trek a success. We were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel and met by Ashim who checked us in and explained about the rest of the trip. We met our guide Dawa (5 times Everest summitier). So much experience from all the Namaste Nomad staff. The trek was fantastic and Dawa (guide) and Sudip (sherpa) looked after us throughout. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Their advise from what to eat and how to cope with the altitude was invaluble. The porters who carried our bags were efficient and our bags were always at the lodge well before we arrived. When we got to EBC a change to the itinerary was discussed with us. Dawa suggested we climb Kala Patthar that afternoon and see the sunset over Everest rather than seeing the sunrise early in the morning. What a brilliant suggestion as we saw Everest on fire. If you want to do trek in Nepal then check these people out. I would not hesitate to go with them again. Already planning a trip in 2020 with them.

Everest Base Camp Trek

I took part in a trek to Annapurna Basecamp with Namaste Nomad in April 2019. I had trekked with Mohan and his team twice before- to Langtang Valley in Nepal in March 2018 and The Picos, in Northern Spain in June 2018. This was my third trip- so I wasn’t as anxious about what awaited me in Nepal! The route to Annapurna is very accessible, the walking was tough enough, I thought- a lot of steps, which are sore on the knees! We were well looked after my our guide, Mohan, and his Sherpa team, Dowa and Mingma, as well as the rest of the team. The food, as on all the trips I’ve been on, was really superb. I loved the rice, lentils, local vegetables and of course the ginger tea! The accommodation was basic but always clean and adequate. Reaching Annapurna Basecamp was the high point of the trip for me- I will never forget it! We were part of a small group, just four hikers. I was traveling with a friend. We had both been part of larger groups on our previous two trips.I think I would prefer to travel in a bigger group if/when I go on a trip like this again. It was a great experience and I recommend Namaste Nomad.

Thank you, Namaste Nomad and Mohan, for an epic trekking experience of a lifetime to the Everest Base Camp (EBC). The planning process was straightforward with timely and accurate communication from Mohan. He was quick to answer our questions which inspired great confidence in the company. We knew that we were in good hands. Mohan and his team made every effort to ensure that we were all safe and that everyone achieved their goals of reaching EBC. He documented the trip along the way and posted photos and stories on social media, which was comforting, enjoyable, and informative for family and friends at home. The food is clean, healthy and delicious, and was carefully prepared to provide perfect fuel for our bodies throughout the trek. The company is also very eco-friendly as they bring all plastics and rubbish down the mountain for recycling. While we were enjoying the amazing Himalayas of Nepal, Mohan and his team expertly handled the daily logistics of travel and lodging. Mohan’s familiarity with the region and its ever-changing weather patterns paid off as he was able to adjust our daily treks to maximize the experience and breath-taking views of the Himalayas. He always had a Plan B! And, a big shout-out to the Sherpas who are all skillful climbers and very friendly. The company provides duffle bags for the trekkers which helps ensure that the Sherpas only carry up to 48.5 lbs. each! Namaste Nomad truly cares about their clients and ensures that they get the most out of world-class trek. Highly recommended!

Trek of a Lifetime

October 2016 Everest Base Camp... I went with Namaste Nomad having looked at other companies based in Ireland doing the same trek. Mohan was always available to answer questions. He himself has trekked to EBC lots of times which is reflected in his knowledge and experience. He employs Sherpa's (and pays them a fair wage !) whom are also very experienced trekkers and some have summited Everest !! they are very in-tuned into the needs (inc health needs, signs & symptoms of altitude sickness), informing us of the different peaks and opening to talking about their experiences summiting mount Everest. The weather was not in our favour for part of the trek. One morning...at 4am the cloud finally lifted; Mohan came and woke us all to share our first glance of mount Everest it was amazing. It is a well worn track to EBC and the key is to take it slowly and enjoy...live in the moment! Mohan always ensured we ate well, drank plenty of clean water & paid attention to everyone on the trek to ensure we remained healthy & safe in order to reach EBC. Mohan had arrange some touristy stuff in Kathmandu before our departure to Lukla...which was great and an opportunity to meet and get to know the group. I would recommend Mohan and his company Namaste Nomad !! I have subsequently booked a trip to Bhutan with Namaste Nomad :)

What a great trip! This trip lets you see a different side to Northern Spain and the Camino. We had a super time trekking in the Picos de Europe with an amazing bunch of people. The groups are small group so it was flexible and there was no issue with tailoring days to what people needed or required. All ages groups, singles, couples but most of all at the end great friends! Accommodation and meals for each night had been thoughtfully located and selected! Food was amazing! This trip has to be experienced and enjoyed by everyone!

I first heard of Mohan and Namaste Nomad 2 years ago and since then I have been on 3 amazing trips with them. The first one was in March 2018 when I went to Langtang in Nepal. My first time there I was excited but more than a little apprehensive. I needn’t have worried. Mohan and his team of sherpas were absolutely wonderful. Everything was taken care of, tickets, transfers, all accommodation, most meals, money exchange and advice on where and what to eat and drink. We had been told that it would be completely vegetarian and dairy free on the trek. I had no problem at all with the vegetarian part of it but thought the dairy free might be tough. It wasn’t at all. We ate the most delicious food all prepared by our sherpas using fresh mostly locally sourced ingredients. The dal boat was to die for. We were constantly reminded to drink water, use sunscreen, wear a hat etc. The scenery in langtang was spectacular, towering snow capped mountains and deep valleys with raging rivers. It was an area which had been badly hit by the recent earthquake and there were sad reminders of the damage which had been done. Overall a very good and memorable experience. June 2018 I headed off to the Picos in Spain with Mohan again. For anyone who might be reluctant to travel too far , but wants amazing scenery I would totally recommend the Picos. Somewhat similar to the Himalayas I thought, one area known as the gorge stood out for me anyway. It was breathtaking. We stayed in the most beautiful little villages, ate delicious food and drank lovely local wine. Just a little as we had to remember we were walking in the morning! In April of this year I went back again to Nepal this time to do Annapurna base camp ( usually just known as ABC). A totally different area but no less lovely. It had a lot of forest and was very fertile. As well as being our guide Mohan was a great source of information about the local people and their way of life. I never stopped asking questions!. Again great walking , lots of steps this time but we kept going and finally on Easter Sunday morning at around 8 local time we arrived into ABC. We were told that the morning was the time to see it at its best . The rising sun in such a blue sky , the snow capped Annapurna range all combined to made it such a highlight. It was so well worth it. I think the fact that I did 3 trips with mohan and his team in such a short space of time says it all and I’m certainly not finished yet. For anyone who wants a trek with a difference but at a good price I don’t think you could do much better.

My treks with Namaste Nomad

This was the second trip I booked with Namaste Nomad. The first was hiking to Everest Base Camp which was a phenomenal trip! I placed a deposit on Bhutan before I left Nepal due to the shear genuineness of Mohan. He is very thorough in ensuring a safe and successful trip. In Bhutan he was open to group needs and used this information to organize alternative to the original plans. The group I was with had great communication between so that we could make choices that benefitted all of us. If you are thinking of traveling abroad and you love realism in your travels this is the company to book with. You will get the chance to see everyday life in your travels vs sitting on a tour bus skipping the realities of life outside.

I am a professor at George Mason University. Namaste Nomad arranged our study abroad trip to Nepal (Conservation Storytelling). We had used another company the year before and have spent many years in Nepal. This company out performs anyone else in Nepal and anywhere globally. Mohan (the CEO) is extraordinarily knowledgable and works very hard to make sure everything is exactly as you need. The people that work for him are the absolute best available in country. Our guide had led multiple tours up Everest and I 100% trusted him with our lives. Our drivers were the same. In addition, Mohan cares very much about the world, the environment and the ability to share cultures and beliefs. And this is how his company is run. With responsibility and heart.
