Everest base camp trek is one of the deserving treks in Nepal. You cannot attempt to base camp until you do proper preparation. Even the experienced hikers need to prepare Everest base camp trek. This article includes the best method of preparation for EBC trek.

  1. Regular fitness exercise

Preparation should begin before three months of trekking. You should do regular fitness exercises like swimming, pushups, Lunges, squats regularly for preventing body pain during the trek.

  1. Walking

We should practice walking for 2,3 hours a day before 2 months of trekking. Our body should be prepared in such a way that we can easily walk 5,6 hours a day during the trek. If possible, we can do short hiking in hills and mountains to know about the mountain trial, its uphills and downhills.

  1. Cycling or swimming

Cycling and swimming makes your muscles stronger and prevent twisting of your muscles during the trek. If you don’t have enough time for long walk then you can practice around an hour cycling or swimming to make your body strong.

  1. Medicle checkup

Before planning for Everest base camp trek, you should do your medical checkup to know the body condition. You should be physically and mentally fit for Everest base camp trek.

  1. Hiking in mountains

If you want to do EBC trek successfully, experience is essential. Doing hiking or short mountain      trekking gives you experience of trekking. Experience is recommended for any trek in Everest region. More the experience easier will be the trek.

  1. Clothing

You should always choose warm and comfortable clothing for trekking in mountains. Depending on your trekking duration, you should pack enough and some extra clothing for a trek. Sometime rain cover may wet your dresses, sweating also makes you changing dress, So always carry 1,3 pair extra clothing.

  1. Booking tea houses

Trekking without booking tea houses may be difficult in peak season.  You cannot get room if you don’t plan or book tea houses earlier. It is always best to choose recommended travel company and book the trek so that they will manage all the requirements like permits, flight ticket and accommodation for your trekking.

Plan For Everest Base Camp Trek

 

Day 1: Arrival at Kathmandu and transfer to Hotel (1,350m).

 

Welcome to Kathmandu, a city full of vibrant markets, bustling streets, colorful temples, and grand pagodas. Our guide will meet you at the airport and take you to our hotel. The remainder of the day you will have an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the shopping areas closest to your hotel and catch up on shopping for equipment. In the evening, our tour guide will give you a brief introduction and provide valuable information about the trek. In the evening you will meet the rest of the group at a welcome dinner at a local Nepali restaurant.

 

 

Day 2: Fly to Lukla (2,804m) & trek to Phakding (2,640m) Duration: 4-5 hours.

 

After an early morning start, you will be picked up at the hotel by our guide who will take you to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla takes around 35 minutes, time enough to take in the spectacular views of the Himalayas. After landing at Tenzing-Hilary airport you will meet your porter who will carry your luggage. You then begin your journey with a relatively easy trek passing a Kani (ceremonial gatehouse) before the trail descends then leads above Kyangma village with its large gompa (monastery) and school. We then continue to Cheplung village where the trail passes through community forest within sight of the Dudh Koshi River. After crossing the suspension bridge you climb across the ridge to Ghat and then passes a school and complex of Mani walls, Chortens and prayer wheels. After a short walk from Ghat, we reach Phakding.

 

Day 3: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m/11283) Walking Distance – 10 to 12 km, Duration: 6 hours

Leaving Phakding behind, you’ll trek north on a path leading to Monjo. This small town serves as the gateway to Sagarmatha National Park, a formally protected area which takes its name from Mt. Everest (called Sagarmatha in Nepali). The park is home to a staggering variety of Himalayan flora and fauna, and you’re sure to enjoy trekking through sweetly scented evergreen forests comprised of blue pine, deodar, and rhododendron. As it doubles back and forth across the Dudh Koshi River, your trail winds its way past tiny settlements called Tok Tok and Jorsale. After crossing a final suspension bridge at the junction of the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers, you’ll hike uphill for about two hours before reaching what’s regarded as the unofficial capital of the Khumbu region: Namche Bazaar. You’ll overnight in one of the town’s many popular guesthouses. 

 

 

 

Day 4: Acclimatization Day – Hike to Everest View Hotel (3,962m/12995ft) Walking Distance – 3 to 4 km, Duration: 3 to 4 hours

 

Today is reserved for acclimatization: as you ascend to higher elevations, it’s important to let your body adapt to the smaller amount of available oxygen in the atmosphere. Fortunately, there’s a lot to see and do in the colorful commercial hub of Namche Bazaar. For one, you’ll get to enjoy your first unobstructed view of Everest itself. Many neighboring peaks are also visible from town, including the mighty Thamserku, the sprawling massif of Kongde RI, and the distinctive summit of Ama Dablam. Consider paying a visit to the Sherpa Culture Museum to learn more about their vibrant traditions; this will help you to understand some of the cultural sights you’ll encounter along the trail in the days to come. Visiting the nearby Everest Photo Gallery may also provide some inspiration for your own photographs. After perusing these displays, take a short hike to the Syangboche Airport just above town. From here, you can capture stunning photographs of Namche Bazaar from above—not to mention the wall of Himalayan peaks surrounding the town. Finally, make sure to visit the Hotel Everest View. It’s regarded as the highest hotel in the world and offers great vistas of its namesake mountain from each window. Overnight at a guesthouse in Namche Bazaar.

.

 

Day 5: Namche to Tengboche (3860m/12660ft) Walking Distance – 10 to 11 km, Duration: 5 hours

 

Today’s hike begins at a leisurely pace. Leaving Namche Bazaar, your path winds uphill through fragrant rhododendron woodlands and passes alongside quiet Himalayan villages. Many trekkers regard this route as the most scenic section of the entire Everest Base Camp Trek. You’re really in the mountains now: Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Nuptse are just a few of the stunning peaks that tower over the trail. You’ll continue hiking past the Imja Khola; this river drains the slopes of Everest and is actually a tributary of the Dudh Koshi. Your destination for today lies where the two rivers converge at the spiritual center of the Khumbu: Tengboche. This village is best known as the site of the important Tengboche Monastery. This is the largest gompa you’ll visit during your hike, and it’s a sublime sight to behold: flanked by pines and azaleas and set against the backdrop of Ama Dablam, it’s hard to imagine a more striking setting. Make sure to step inside to check out the monastery’s exquisite murals and statuary. You’ll spend thenight at a guesthouse in Tengboche. Overnight at Common bathroom

 

 

 

Day 6: Tengboche to Dingboche (4410m/14464ft) Walking Distance – 11 to 12 km, Duration: 5 hours

After savoring a tasty breakfast in Tengboche, you’ll begin your morning hike by descending through forest-clad hillsides towards the tiny hamlet of Deboche. You’ll cross a handful of suspension bridges over the Imja Khola before approaching the next notable settlement on today’s route: Pangboche. This is a good place to rest and enjoy a snack while taking in tremendous views of Ama Dablam. When you’re ready to continue, you’ll start climbing along a trail lined with prayer flags and bordered by mani walls. Mani walls are comprised of many stone tablets, each of which is inscribed with a Buddhist mantra, and should always be passed on the left. Continuing past the village of Orsho, you’ll finally arrive at the small Sherpa village called Dingboche. Known as the “summer valley” of the region, Dingboche experiences summer rains from the monsoon, contributing to its farming livelihood. Check in at an internet café or enjoy a bite to eat from one of the local bakeries before turning in at your guesthouse, where you’ll spend the night. Today’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.

 

Day 7: Acclimatization Day- Hike to Nagarjun hill and return: Walking Distance – 5 to 6 km, Duration: 4 to 5 hours

Now that you’ve reached altitudes greater than 4,000 meters, you’ll need more time to adjust to the rarified air. Today is therefore reserved for acclimatization—but that doesn’t mean you have to sit still. Just south of Dingboche is a steep hike to the top of Nagarjun Hill, from which you can obtain gobsmacking views of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Lobuche, and Taboche. Trekking to this rewarding vantage point also offers a panoramic vista of the entire Imja Khola valley. When you’ve had your fill of sightseeing, return to Dingboche to explore its many guesthouses, restaurants, bakeries, and shops. Dingboche is also noted for hosting one of the world’s highest billiards parlors. For our money, there’s nothing more relaxing than kicking back with a mug of butter tea while enjoying the solitary splendor of Imja Tse, the 6,189-meter mountain better known as Island Peak, which rises above town.

 

Day 8: Dingboche to Lobuche (4910m/16105ft) Walking Distance – 11 to 12 km, Duration: 5 hours

 

After leaving Dingboche, today’s hike takes you through windswept pastures and past the lonely huts of yak herders. As you trek towards the tiny settlement of Lobuche, you’ll notice changes in the local terrain. The woodlands of the past few days have now thinned out, replaced with scattered shrubs and rocky, snow-dusted grasslands. Your route will afford you with a good look at the now-familiar peaks of Lhotse and Ama Dablam, but there are even more mountains to be identified from here. Ask your guide to point out Lingtren, Pumori, and Khumbutse. Today’s trek ends at Lobuche, a small village nestled in the shadow of the mountain which shares its name. Lobuche is comprised almost entirely of guesthouses, so it’s the ideal spot to spend the night. Make sure to get plenty of rest so you’re ready for the hike to Everest Base Camp in the morning.

 

Day 9: Trek to Gorak shep (5,180m) trek to EBC & overnight stay at Gorekshep Duration: 7-8 hours.

We commence our trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp through the vast Gorak-Shep. Along the trail, we pass the Indian army mountaineers’ memorials. At this point the path can be confusing, so following your guide is important. The thin air at this high altitude can be exhausting. We traverse rocky dunes, moraine, and streams before reaching the Mt. Everest Base Camp. From Everest Base Camp you will see some of the world’s highest peaks, in stark contrast to the gray surroundings – especially in the spring. Before we are Khumbuste, Nuptse, and Pumori. We will then head back to Gorak Shep.

 

 

Day 10: Hike to Kalapatthar (5,550m) at sunrise & trek to Pheriche (4200 m) Duration: 7-8 hours.

 

At around 4 a.m. in the pre-dawn darkness and cold temperatures (-10 to -14 C) we begin our trek. It is common for there to be cold winds at this altitude. Towering peaks, such as Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Changtse loom before us to the east as Everest comes into view. Not until we reach Kala Patthar (5550m) do we get a 360 degree up-close and bird’s eye view of Mount Everest. After taking in the panoramic views and madly clicking cameras we will return back to Lobuche and then to Pheriche for a good night’s rest. 

 

Day 11: Trek Back to Namche Bazaar (3,440 m) Duration: 8-9 hours

 

From Pheriche we retrace our steps descending to the Imja Khola and then up through the rhododendron forest to Tengboche monasteries. For some, this will be an opportunity to see the nuns perform their religious ceremonies at the Tengboche Monastery. After lunch at Tengboche, we continue our trek across the hillside blanketed by colorful rhododendron and juniper trees. After crossing the bridge over the (milky river) Dudh Koshi River our trail continues through the Dudh Koshi gorge descending rapidly through the pine forests before reaching Sansa. Along the way we keep our eyes peeled for wildlife, such as (Himalaya Thar) mountain goats, snow leopards, and colorful pheasants while passing through the forest. After passing a Chorten we reach the army camp at Namche Bazaar where we stay overnight.

 

Day 12: Trek to Lukla (2,804 m) Duration: 6-7 hours

 

This is our final day of trekking before returning to our starting point at Lukla. This is a time to reflect on the unforgettable memories of our trek as a group and our achieving our individual goals. A free afternoon allows you time to relax and enjoy a hot shower! In the evening we will celebrate with a few drinks and dance.

 

Day 13: Fly back to Kathmandu; flight Duration: 30 minutes.

          

After our 13 day trek, we take an early morning flight from Lukla to Kathmandu. After arriving at Kathmandu, you can take a rest or do some shopping. This is also a time to catch up on visiting places you missed on arrival in Kathmandu.
