Everest Base Camp Trek

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

Our whole team is from the Himalayas with experienced climbers and sherpas, we can offer this trek for a highly competitive price from Ireland/Europe. 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 benefit from this as the helicopter company gives them a commission.

For us, a successful trip is what matters. Our co-founder Mohan lives in Ireland – as an advocate of health and well-being 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, bustling capital, and the best trekking in the world.

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 colourful 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 of 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 perceptions, and 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.

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 Base Camp,  Everest the highest mountain in the world, dream 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. All itineraries are different based on what date and group you join. Please read through your tour PDF before signing up.


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 one we count including departing from your country)

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 the 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 centre of the Khumbu region, and take the opportunity of visiting the monks and watch 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

Day 17: Shopping

Free day for activities of your choice: rest & relax / shopping/city tour. It is also possible to visit, for example, Nagarkot or Bhaktapur (the cost for this is not included
in our itinerary).

I had the most amazing experience walking up to EBC and Kala Pattar with Namaste Nomad. Words cannot describe the views and euphoria. The trip couldn't have been any better from beginning to end. We were thoroughly spoilt and taken care of to the highest standards by Dawa our guide and Sudip his assistant. They were both very accommodating, flexible, helpful, polite, knowledgeable and fun to be around. Our porters were efficient and helped ease our pain! The team offered us excellent advice at all times. In preparation for our trip Ashim and his team briefed us at our hotel and answered all of our questions. I would not hesitate in recommending your highly professional team to any friend or family member (RJ from Southampton UK)


Everest base camp


The trip with namaste nomad to Everest Base Camp was truly amazing. The group I was with were also a great bunch of people and it made the trip a lot more enjoyable. The professionalism that mohan and his team of Sherpas provide is exceptional. We did see some other groups on the trip and unfortunately we could clearly see that a lot of things were not provided for them. Travelling with mohan, everything is taken care of from food to the bed you sleep in. It’s almost like you have a group of babysitters because the only thing you have to worry about is the walking !. Mohan and his team provide a safe friendly and thoroughly enjoyable journey even when you hit some hard points. I would highly recommend Namaste nomad for any trip you might want to do. From start to finish the trip was amazing !

Life changing !


Had an amazing trip. Was worth every penny. The sherpas and guides were very experienced and professional (two of them had summited Everest). The food was great too. Mohan knew what was best for the group, was great at leading us to Everest!

Adventure of a lifetime


It truly was the greatest experience I've ever had. Going into the Trip I Didn't known anyone, Leaving we were the best of friends. The Shepherds knew exactly what they were doing and Also Great fun. Accommodation was brilliant And the views breath taking. The Main man Mohan, Always with a smile on his face, Made sure that every one of us went up and came down safely. I'll be doing more treks with Namaste Nomad in the future for sure!!

Once in a Life Time Experience


Best company and personal guided trekking in Himalayas. I been to NEPAL few times and I have done trek in Annapurna circuit with travel company from Dublin ( not fair to say name?) That company collaborate with Nepali local company. This time I choose Namaste Nomad after friend of mine recommend Mohan from donegal ( he is nepali origin Irish citizen and previously worked in Himalayas as #sherpa and guide) I checked the website and see the cost of EBC, compare to other company from Ireland he was very cheap but his itinerary and service looks similar. It was bit hard design to take after seeing price as don't know why he is very cheap and rest are expansive. But now I can say it was the best design. After my #ebc trek with Mohan and Dawa I understand that they deal direct and no middle man. They have oxygen, emergency satellite phone, madicle kit, and we were guided by 5 time Everest summiter one of the humble guy Dawa Sherpa. I am so thankful that I made it to Everest Base Camp. Going up all food was dairy free and no meat, it was hard but great vegetrain food for healthy body and its safe and no sickness. In high altitude Mohan says meat and dairy dosent digest properly that's why many people are tummy sick and get altitude sickness in high places. Many big company doesn't care this much in details , probably no experience in field. Mohan and Dawa have great knowledge and so much caring. Mohan have great links with domestic Air and hotels and markets in Kathmandu also along the trek in tea houses it makes trip very flexible, he was able to change few places in itinerary in our demands. Instead of staying in Namche 2 night we travel to #khumjung like that didn't happen in last trip. Arrival dinner in Kathmandu was free and very well organise evening. Well breafing pre trek. Early flights in and out from lukla. No hassel at all. Luggage store in Kathmandu, Hotel moonlight is best place to stay just back of thamel and 1 minute from Everest Irish Pub 😁. Great rooms and nice beer garden in back. Sightseen was include in trip as well. Overall it was the best adventure holiday so far. I am already decided to do Meera peak with Mohan and Namaste Nomad next year. I fully recommend this small but amizing company for you epic trip to Himalayas.

Everest Base camp


Did the errigal sunrise hike. We didnt see the sun because of the mist and the Rain, but is was still a very beautiful trip to the top. Had a great guide (Malachy thanks again) and the trip was well organized by Mohan.

Errigal sunrise hike


I travelled to Nepal with Namaste Nomad in March 2018 to trek in Langtang Valley. There were eleven in the group, along with Mohan, our guide. We spent a few days in Kathmandu to acclimatise. We visited three Unesco Heritage sites in the city. Then the trek began- an eight hour bus journey to the start of our adventure.. We trekked for eight days in the are which had been devastated by the earthquake in 2015. The trek was exhilarating, sometimes challenging- Mohan reminded us that we were in the Himalayas- always an adventure! He knew what we needed/wanted before we did! The team of sherpas and trainees were really excellent- they sorted our luggage every day... even checking under the beds in case we left anything behind; they cooked our delicious meals & served us- some of us are still dreaming of Dhal Bhat😋! They were at our side before we knew we needed a hand up or down loose rock🙄! After seven days trekking we returned to Kathmandu to wind down. It was a great experience, made special by the attention to detail of Mohan- a birthday party 🎉, a St Patrick's Day celebration to name a few. What a trip! I recommend Namaste Nomad unreservedly & will travel with Mohan again!

Langtang Valley Trek


I had the pleasure of recently being part of another wonderful trip to the Himalayas - Annapurna Base Camp - with Namaste Nomad - a wonderful small business. There are so many reasons I would always choose Namaste Nomad over any other company. Most importantly it is a true Eco friendly organisation, everything is accounted for along the treks - food, water and waste. They are also Animal friendly and only use porters for transport. This is better as it is providing more jobs for locals, and removes any animal cruelty that can occur only the trek due to pushing yaks or donkeys too hard, too far and without adequate food or water. The food during my trips was phenomenal! If you listen to Mohan and the rest of the guides you are guaranteed success at altitude. Vegetarian, local and fresh food are on the menu. Everyone can live without meat for a couple of weeks...you most definitely don't want to be eating meat in a country that doesn't do health and safety and the food has to be transported on some ones back and could be 4 or 5 days before reaching its end destination - your plate. I have never felt safer on a trip in a foreign country than with Namaste Nomad. The sherpas, porters and guides are all local and have been with the company for a long time. They are all courteous, respectful, friendly and extremely knowledgeable - many of them having submitted Everest and other Himalayan peaks many times over. Everything is taken care of from your first interaction with Mohan. Flights, hotels, transport food, etc. The cost is the best value I have seen - even better value than most as the experience you are getting is unbelievable. As if that wasnt enough, Namaste Nomad also helps out small, local people and communities around Nepal with fundraising and charity works. If you want to raise money to give back to some of the communities you know that it is going directly to where it is needed and not into the pockets of charity CEOs. Don't listen to me any more, just book a trip with Mohan and see for yourself!

Another incredible trip with an amazing company


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


A truly enjoyable hiking trip through the Pico mountains in North Spain with Mohan,our experienced guide. The trip was well organised and food and accommodation of unexpected high standard.Great company as well. Next trip will be Langtang,Nepal with Namaste Nomad,can't wait.
