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

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 !

I have just returned from the most remarkable trip of a lifetime to Everest Basecamp. I don’t usually write reviews however on this occasion I feel the need to share my experiences which I hope will inspire others to travel and to book a trip with Namaste Nomad. I booked this trip in Jan 18 after meeting with Mohan. After my initial meeting I had no doubts in travelling with Mohan and his team. Mohan is an exceptional person who is so passionate about his business and works so hard to ensure everyone meets their goal and has an amazing trip. Everest Basecamp was everything I imagined and much more. The views are breathtaking and the sense of achievement on arriving at Basecamp is so hard to put into words. The trip is a life changing experience as you learn so much about yourself and indeed about others. It really was a journey from the time of booking until we returned home from the Himalayas. I found it very challenging physically, mentally and emotionally but that’s what made it so very special. Throughout the trek Mohan was so attentive to our every need, every decision he made was the right one and his motivation and encouragement ensured we all made it successfully to Basecamp. Mohan’s knowledge of Nepal and the Himalayas is exceptional. Everything from planning the food to gauging the weather to recognising signs when some of us weren’t too well was spot on If you are considering a trek then I can honestly say that you will not get anyone better to travel with than Namaste Nomad. The team of Sherpas and Porters are incredible and the bond made with the Sherpas is one I will never forget, it really was incredible. As for value for money you will not get a more competitive price as I priced several others which were significantly more costly than Namaste Nomad Overall if you want a challenging and life changing experience then I encourage you to make that adventure with Namaste Nomad and I guarantee you will not regret it Thanks to Mohan and his team for everything, I will never forget it. Xx

I travelled with a group from Ireland to Nepal where we started our joureny to Everest Basecamp. This trek was very special to me as I was doing it for charity in memory of my late brother who was a keen hillwalker. Our group was made up of 9 people from Ireland, Scotland and USA. Such a fantastic group it turned out to be. We all supported each other and made new friends, having alot of fun along the way. Oh From start to finish Mohan our leader, did everything in his power to ensure that our trek was 100% successful. The trip was very challenging but very rewarding. He supported us all even when we were struggling and was there at our beck and call at all times. I would like to give a special mention to the 3 sherpas who accompanied us during our trek, Tshering, Pimba and Paldene. Such fantastic support to all of us and true gentlemen. I would highly recommend this group for anybody contemplating a similar experience.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or just first time adventurer you'll notice when you search on line for somewhere to visit that there are plenty of web sites and travel companies that seem to offer very similar packages, similar routes, similar landscapes all promising the same experience.This is my second time to Himalayas, first time to Everest base camp (with a different Irish Company). I recently travelled to Island Peak with Mohan and Namaste Nomad team. No matter how much research you do regarding a trek the experience will be a unique and personal journey for you, there are a lot of variables to consider. I enjoyed my first experience, however when I compare both treks covering similar routes albeit different destinations I cannot stress how impressed I am with the leadership, professionalism, sincerity, and uniqueness that is offered by Namaste Nomad.From the outset there is trust, honesty, and a deep motivation by Mohan and his team to understand and satisfy your reason for joining an adventure with them. Whether you travel alone (like me), as a couple, or a group of friends you will soon feel part of a wonderful group with the necessary time to oneself and others yet the room to feel like you’re on holiday although you have a mission. They offer great advice from well seasoned experienced staff, your safety and well being are always monitored and cared for, food and accommodation is lovely and varied. The people you meet, the guides and helpers, and the places you visit and stay along the way are easily passed by other tour companies.With our 2018 trek to Island Peak plans had to change due to weather conditions and our itinerary was altered and managed seamlessly by Mohan and his team with coordination with Kathmandu. This unplanned adjustment offered a window to a successful summit for the majority of our party, although we met groups who failed either side of our new summit day including a group of 19 who were left so disappointed. I am a seasoned hiker but this was my first time using ropes and having to complete some technical mountaineering, the training and equipment was provided by Mohan and his team including Dawa J Sherpa (5 time Everest summiteer) all helping to micro manage each group member on the day.The uniqueness offered by Namaste Nomad is that they genuinely care that you get the most from the adventure you choose. Other companies testify to the same but sometimes really it is left up to you to make the most of what they offer, they're running a business however to Mohan and Namaste Nomad it is more than just a business, one experience and you'll understand what I mean. They have set a real benchmark for me.

Whatever your reason for adventure Namaste Nomad holds it

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.

Epic trip to Everest Base Camp.

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.

I recently traveled to Nepal with Namaste Nomad to climb Mera Peak. This trip was an absolute amazing life experience for me. Mohan arranged everything from flights to accommodation to food and everything in between. His local knowledge was invaluable especially in Kathmandu where he even got our money changed to ensure we received the best rate. The trek itself could not have been better for acclimatisation. It’s a slightly longer route than some but gives you the best chance of summiting. Our 2 Sherpas could not have done more. They treated us like family and not just clients. They did everything they could to give us the best chance at summiting .. which the whole group did. I would definitely use NN for an future treks in the Himalayas. 10 out of 10!!

After meeting Mohan briefly in Donegal I soon signed up to join him his team and 10 other travellers to trek Nepal's Langtang valley. Best decision ever!From the get go when we all met at Dublin airport the level of organisation and planning Mohan had put into this trip became clear. After hassle free flights Mohan had arranged for a local taxi company to meet us at the airport keeping the group together making for stress travel to the hotel, the hotel selected also was to a high standard with everyone's needs catered to.As part of our trip Mohan had arranged for Cultural shows, dinner booking and buses to Kathmandu's heritage sites including a local guide. Allowing us to make the most of our time in this culturally intriguing city.Then it was on to the trekking bit! after the 8 hour bus journey to the mountains we where treated to dinner cooked that the hotel by our guides and porters this was to be the case daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was excellent and more importantly the level of food hygiene Mohan requires these guys work to more than meets any western standards, out of 11 people no one got any food related sickness unlike some people we met on the way who where travelling with other companies if only for this reason alone I couldn't recommend Namaste Nomad highly enough.While on the trek the scenery was simply stunning where the true beauty of the Himalayas is apparent. Making the trek all the more enjoyable was the level knowledge our guides had on the area, plants and animals, and they where only to happy to impart this on us. While being the real professionals they where also great company through out.For most of the group including myself it was our first team at high altitude, and the focus on everyone's safety from Mohan and team was very evident. Something we all found extremely reassuring allowing you to enjoy the trek knowing that you are in good hands. In turn giving us the confidants to make the optional climb to 4800m an experience that will simply leave you gob smacked with a real sense of achievement.After this we made the trek back down through the valley which was an absolute delight with everyone on a high after what had been an unforgettable experience and achievement. With another couple of days to spend in Kathmandu it was a great way to round off the trip.I have already signed up to trek to Everest base camp in September 2019 and that in it self is properly best recommendation I could possibly give.

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!
