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

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

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.

Travelled to the north of Spain for a week with Mohan from Namaste Nomad - travelled with 2 friends - 12 in total in the group - 12 had such a laugh. Great bunch of people of all age groups. The holiday was fool proof with all activities and meals organised. We age local cuisine with the locals. Truly an amazing holiday and I would highly recommend it. I thought the holiday was so well organised I have decided to travel to Nepal with this company in 2018. Get booking - you wont regret it.

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.

Traveling with your eyes open, Bhutan!

My husband and I found out about Namaste Nomad while on a hike in Ireland the year before. We stayed in connect with Mohan and planned going on the Island Peak trek. Being in the USA, all our communication was by email and Mohan answered all of our questions so we felt ready when we flew to Nepal. The trek was incredible. No stress. Mohan dealt with accommodations in Kathmandu and in the Everest Circuit, food the entire trek, flights to and from Lukla, and taxis from the airport. He gave great advice on the hike up, like avoiding dairy and meat and keeping a constant steady pace, so we didn't get sick or hurt before summit day. He was concerned about our well being and wanted us to make it to the summit and be happy as much as we wanted to. His sherpas were incredible men. Humble, sweet, and considerate. You can trust your guides and you will make a great friend at the same time.

Just come back from Bhutan and India, had the most amazing time. Mohan looked after us well and always made our travels easy, taking care of everyones needs. I experienced some amazing sights which I do not think I would have on any average tour, we really did see the real India. I am now planning my next trip. Can not recommend them enough.

I love traveling with Nameste Nomad! This is my fourth trip with Mohan and Nameste Nomad, the reasons I keep coming back are; 1. Affordable- they are half price of most guide companies! 2. Ecologically friendly- when trekking in Nepal we take boiled water over plastic bottles, He asks that people think of their impact as travelers, leaving only footsteps not trash. 3. Quality- from transport to hotels we stayed in high quality hotels and comfortable transportation. 4. Personal touch- the guides where fantastic in looking after all sorts of details and needs. Each trip I have learned new words to use in the countries I’ve been in. 5. Humane travel- Nameste Nomad asks you to participate in the local culture by trying and eating the locally. As in Nepal you will be asked eat Vegetarian since that is the local norm. 6. As a small organization I have had the privilege to travel with the owner, Mohan on multiple trips. 7. Local impact- since I have traveled multiple times with Nameste Nomad, I have had the privilege to see Mohan do charity work while trekking. We have fed small children as we hiked and have stayed at off the beaten path locations to provide a more equitable impact in the mountains of Nepal. One group raised money to aid a village women’s group. Two years later I visited to see the final work that the money did. 8.safety- All guides with Nameste Nomad have had training in first-aid. In Nepal most of his guides have mountain rescue skills from working on Mt. Everest. 9.Multi-National groups. As an American, it is refreshing to travel with persons from all over Europe and Australia. Each time I’ve been on a trip I have met new friends. 10. Experience-each trip has been filled with wonder and delights; from my co-travelers to the knowledge of the guides. I have nothing but great memories and new friends!

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!

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!

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)
