Day 01 Welcome to Kathmandu

Welcome to Kathmandu, a spicy masala of mixed reputations. The gems of its heritage now contrast with its all too typical Asian big city melee and manic traffic. Our representative will meet you at the airport and whisk you off to the hotel. After checking-in meet your tour leader for a pre-trip briefing at 6 pm. Then head out on cycle rickshaw, a.k.a. ‘street helicopters’-through the colorful tourist hub of Thamel and then onto the bustling vegetable and spice markets of Asan – the oldest market square of Kathmandu. Continue to take the backstreets into the Kathmandu Durbar Square. Devoid of tour groups and tastefully illuminated at night, you will certainly feel the soulful side of the archaic Kathmandu.

Day 02 Phakding (2610m)

Today we take an early morning stunning flight to Lukla-the gateway to the region of the legendary Sherpas. Start trekking north towards Phakding, with meandering trails lined by stoned walls. Lunch en route is in the picturesque Thado-Koshi, on the high rise above the river of the same name and with imposing sister peaks of Kusum-Kangarru in the backdrop. Our overnight stop is in Phakding (2610m) Total walking duration: 2.5 to 3 hrs approx.

Day 03 Namchhe (3440m)

Following the torrent of the Dudh Koshi, the trail climbs north through forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs as you ascend to Namche Bazaar, the largest village in the Everest region often called the ‘Sherpa Capital' of Khumbu. Later in the afternoon, explore the village of Namchhe (3440m) Total walking duration: 6 hrs approx.

Day 04 Namchhe (3440m)

Today starts with an early morning walk to the Everest viewing platform, the museum and radial acclaimatisation walk around surrounding villages.

...

Day 05 Phortse Gaon (3950 m)

Leaving Namche, the trail is onward and steadily upwards, forking northeast along a tributary valley with the views of the spectacularly rising Ama Dablam-opening up to become very dramatic. At the lunch stop approaching Mong-La (pass), views of the Phortse village-looking down across the valley. Then a steep downhill trek to the Dudh Koshi river and then up again to reach Phortse Gaon (3950 m) Total walking duration: 6 hrs approx.

Day 06 Dingboche (4930 m)

Uphill out of Phortse, great views looking back at the village. Enjoy the wonderful views across the Imja Khohe valley to Tengboche, and of Thamserku rising from the valley behind. Trekking past the Gompa, which holds the famous Yeti scalp, at Pangboche, are the summer yak pastures and here lies no doubt as to the spartan lives of Sherpas. Beyond this, it is as well to understand that overnight sleeping facilities can reflect the harshness of our surroundings. Much of the walking in this area is of comparatively gentle gradient, although a leisurely pace is anyway recommended due to the high altitude. Dingboche is nestled into a small protected valley, the Chukhung Valley, surrounded by imposing snow-capped mountains. Dingboche (4930 m) Total walking duration: 5 hrs approx.

Day 07 Dingboche

Spend the day in dingboche so your body can acclimatize to the high altitude, talk to your tour leader about taking a hike to Nagarjun Hill (approx. 5,050m) or Chukung village (5 hrs approximately-there and return), with fine views of Ama Dablam, Makalu and other peaks, interspersed with lakes and glaciers.

Day 08 Lobuche (4930m)

Ascending at a sensible pace, traversing ice-covered torrents, to Lobuche where stone houses sit amongst a frozen wilderness of stunning beauty and where exists a thrilling sense of closeness to our ultimate goal. Lobuche (4930m) Total walking duration: 5 hrs approx.

Day 09 Gorakshep (5367m)

The goal that is Base Camp sets up for a demanding day. Here the Sirdar’s duty is to have us safely navigate the Khumbu Glacier so as to have Khumbu’s infamous icefall impose itself, leaving only the awesome, humbling South Face beyond. Gorakshep (5367m) Total walking duration: 9 hrs approx.

Day 10 Pheriche (5545m)

The best vantage-point for viewing Everest and the surrounding peaks at sunrise; as if not just Everest but the entire world, is breath-taking. Then descend to the flat and sandy expanse of Gorakshep, and on down to Pheriche (5545m) Total walking duration: 6 hrs approx.

Day 11 Tengboche (3860m)

And so down to Tengboche. The trail descends gently, crossing the Dudh Koshi torrent that higher up had been the glacier of Khumbu, then, leaving behind alpine meadows, the trail descends to Tengboche for the night. Tengboche (3860m) Total walking duration: 4 hrs approx.

Day 12 Monjo (2700m)

Retracing the now familiar route via Namche Bazaar to the less harsh climbs of Monjo (2700m) Total walking duration: 4-5 hrs approx.

Day 13 Lukla (2820m)

The trail followed is almost easy, up and down through scrub forests and a final steep ascent leading to a Tamang village and so to Lukla, where the time to relax in Sherpa ambience is abundant. Lukla (2820m) Total walking duration: 4-5 hrs approx.

Day 14 Explore Thamel

After breakfast, take a morning flight to the capital city of Kathmandu. Private transfer from the airport to the traveller’s hub of Thamel. Later in Thamel, free time to self-explore this touristic district, where you're spoiled with choices to eat out. Later in the evening head out for a farewell dinner with your tour leader and new friends.

Day 15 Farewell to Kathmandu

It’s time now to bid farewell to your tour leader and new friends but not without a backpack full of memories. Departure transfers are included on the day. Please consult with your tour leader or the hotel desk to confirm the check out time.

Reviews

Christopher Wilson

This adventure is a life-changing experience that you shouldn't hesitate to book. The stunning beauty of the Himalayas and the EBC trail will leave you in awe. I want to give a special thanks to our fantastic leader Muskan, assistant leader Bikash, and porter Milan for making the trip so memorable and running so smoothly. Nepal will always hold a special place in my heart.

Samantha Lewis

This trip was an absolute blast. The Everest Base Camp experience was surreal and humbling, with stunning scenery all around us. Our leader, Santosh, was truly inspirational, and our crew made the trip seamless from start to finish. Without their constant support and encouragement, we would not have been able to make it to Everest Base Camp. A big thank you to everyone involved in making this trip an unforgettable adventure.

Matej Novak

Our tour with OWA to ABC was such an amazing life experience! We were so lucky to have a great bunch on our tour from all different backgrounds - it really made the trip super fun! The guides Deepan we had were exceptional; they were so professional and knew exactly how to make everyone safe wherever we went. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for some fun trekking in Nepal.

Liam Wilson

What an incredible and breathtaking two weeks of hiking! It was great to be able to spend it with such a wonderful group of kindred spirits, as well as their knowledgeable guides. I would highly suggest this adventure to anyone looking for a way to challenge themselves and have a good time

Emily Brown

If you're brave enough to take it on, EBC Trek is sure to keep ya on your toes! We had the fabulous guide Sandeep and their party posse with us and they made sure we stayed safe, weren't lost, and knew all there was to know about the area. Believe me - it truly was something that left an impression! But be warned - this isn't gonna be easy peasy like a walk in the park. What a view – locals around, foodies delight, and then some serious mountain climbing with plenty of rest stops coupled with T-break along the way! Hahah, that tea felt like super energy drinks stuff. And our group just got along so well; I wish we could all go traveling together again sometime soon.

Luca Rossi

Whoa-yay! We did it! Making it to base camp felt like winning a million bucks - totally worth all the effort. Props to our peeps who kept us safe and comfy, we'd have been toast without you guys. Our experience with One World Adventures's Expert leader Fulay and his team deserves ten stars not just five - seriously, don't even think about going on this kind of adventure with anyone else. You rock

James Garcia

We were so fortunate to have two full weeks of bright blue skies! Fulay Dai was our perfect leader, and his warm personality and concern for our safety made him the perfect guide. Our wonderful supporting staff was always on hand to make sure we had everything we needed -including taking care of all those heavy bags! We really appreciate it all!

Liam Li Li

Our trip was incredibly organized, and the team provided us with knowledgeable and supportive guidance throughout. The treks were quite strenuous, but our Sovan the fearless leader saw us safely through potential altitude sickness issues to reach base camp. This was our first experience traveling with One World Adventures and we would certainly be eager to utilize their services once more in the future.
