Description

The high mountains of the Khumbu Valley shadow the famous route to the base camp of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, known as Sagarmatha to the local Nepali people. The summit of Everest sits at 29,029 feet, so even trekking to the base camp (17,590 ft.) is no small task. While we will be trekking uphill on the way to Everest Base Camp, the trek is considered “Nepali Flat”, meaning there are many ups and downs consistently throughout the 65 mile trek. However, we will be hiking with light day packs, while supporting the local community by hiring porters to carry the majority of our group and personal gear. This trek is a massive accomplishment and an unforgettable adventure!

On this 17-day Wildland Trekking hiking tour, we will travel through remote villages inhabited by the Sherpa people, visit Buddhist monasteries and sleep in rustic Sherpa tea houses. We will have breakfasts, lunches and dinners in tea houses along the way ensuring cultural interaction. Additionally, we will visit the Kathmandu temples of Boudhanath, Swayambhunath and Durbar square. The natural mountain scenery coupled with the rich culture of the Khumbu Valley, makes the Wildland Trekking Everest Base Camp trek one of the best treks in the world.

An orientation meeting, dinner and accommodations are included on Day 1. Your return flight should be scheduled for the final day of the tour. Flights to and from Kathmandu are the guest’s responsibility. Multiple airlines operate flights into Kathmandu, but there are no direct flights from U.S. or European cities.

Your departure flight can be any time on the final day of the itinerary.

Itinerary

Itinerary

DAY 1

On this Nepal hiking tour, we will pick you up from Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, Nepal and transport you to our hotel in Thamel (tourist section of Kathmandu). We will have some down time to rest, have showers and eat. This evening we will meet for team introductions. Subsequently, we will go out to dinner at our favorite local Nepali restaurant. Be sure to drink copious amounts of water in route, as flying and traveling will certainly dehydrate you. Self care begins immediately.

DAY 2

This morning we will enjoy our first Nepali breakfast at the hotel in Thamel. Then we will visit the famous “Monkey Temple” of Kathmandu, Swayambhunath. Once we are ready to leave Swayambhunath, we will travel to the largest Buddhist stupa in the world, Boudhanath. After our temple tours, we will travel back to Thamel. We will have free time to wander the streets of Thamel, purchase last minute trekking supplies or rest in your room. Lunch and dinner are on your own today so feel free to explore. We will set a time to meet for preparation for the following day and for a thorough introduction of our itinerary to the Khumbu valley and Everest Base Camp.

DAY 3

  • Hiking Mileage: 3.9 miles
  • Lowest Elevation: 8,700 feet
  • Highest Elevation: 9,186 feet
  • Trekking Duration: 4 hours

This morning we will have breakfast at the guest house and then travel back to Tribhuvan International Airport for an in-country flight (35 minutes) to the village of Lukla. Most companies take planes to Lukla due to lower cost, however we opt for the much more reliable helicopter option. The weather in Lukla often causes in-bound flights to be delayed for days or even weeks. It is extremely common to see upset visitors leaving the airport returning to Kathmandu. By using helicopters, we have a much higher possibility of getting to Lukla without problems.

Upon arrival in Lukla, we will be immersed in the Sherpa and Tamong cultures of the Khumbu Valley. At the airport, we will meet our porters for the expedition and arrange our personal and group gear accordingly. This begins our journey to Everest Base Camp as we begin walking slowly from Lukla to the village of Phakding. Today’s walk is mostly downhill and will take roughly 3 hours. Upon arrival in Phakding, we will check into our tea house and have some down time to take in the area before being served our nutritious Nepali dinner.

Note: If time permits, we will visit the Buddhist lamasery (Buddhist orphanage) across the river and get a glimpse into the life of Buddhist orphans.

DAY 4

  • Hiking Mileage: 4.6 miles
  • Lowest Elevation: 8,700 feet
  • Highest Elevation: 11,286 feet
  • Trekking Duration: 5-6 hours

After breakfast, we will embark on a journey to the famous Namche Bazaar! From Phakding, we will cross and re-cross the river on high suspension bridges. Beyond the village of Monjo is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park which was set-up in order to protect and preserve this fragile mountain environment. If the weather is clear, we will have our first glimpse of Mt Everest. Namche is the main trading village in the Khumbu valley and has a traditional market. Historically, Hindu traders from the lowlands would meet Tibetan yak caravans that have crossed the glaciated Nangpa La at this market. Once we arrive in Namche, we will check into our rooms, change clothes and have some free time. At a designated time, we will meet at the guest house for dinner and after dinner we will deliver the plan for the next day.

DAY 5

  • Hiking Mileage: 1 mile
  • Lowest Elevation: 11,286 feet
  • Highest Elevation: 11,586 feet

Today we will sleep in and have a late breakfast. We will be staying in Namche in order to acclimatize to the altitude and rest before ascending higher. Namche is tucked away between two ridges amidst the magnificent peaks of the Khumbu and has an abundance of guest houses, tea shops and souvenir shops. After breakfast, we will choose to either visit the Khunde hospital, which was set-up by Sir Edmund Hillary, or take a walk up to the ridge above Namche for the amazing view of the mountains Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest. We will come back for lunch at the guest house and then have the afternoon free. It is a great day to drink Chia(tea), read books, send post cards or hang out around the fire with the locals. We will determine a time to meet for dinner where we deliver the plan for the next day.

DAY 6

  • Hiking Mileage: 3.7 miles
  • Lowest Elevation: 11,286 feet
  • Highest Elevation: 12,687 feet

Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Nuptse in route to our destination. Tonight we will be staying in the village of Tengboche, home to the famous Tengboche Monastery. Inside the monastery we will see large wall hangings, a 20-foot Buddha, and the musical instruments and robes of the local Lamas. Depending on our timing, we will observe a local prayer ceremony. We will be eating dinner and sleeping in a local Tea house in Tengboche.

We will then ascend to the traditional Sherpa village of Dingboche. From Dingboche we will have great views of Mt. Lhotse, Imja Tse and Ama Dablam.

This morning we will sleep in and have a leisurely morning for acclimatization purposes. After copious amounts of hot drinks and a hearty breakfast, we’ll take an acclimatization hike up a hill behind Dingboche. The old heuristic is “climb high, sleep low”, and gaining 1,000 ft. elevation that day is the goal. We will be back in Dingboche for lunch and the afternoon is free before being served dinner.

Once in Lobuche, we will eat food, drink water and chia and have some time to acclimatize and rest.

DAY 10

  • Hiking Mileage: 6.5 miles
  • Lowest Elevation: 16,167 feet
  • Highest Elevation: 17,585 feet

Upon arrival at base camp, we will celebrate with group photos and celebratory treats! Additionally, there will most likely be Mountaineering teams attempting to climb Mt. Everest staying at EBC. We will have incredible views of the highest mountains in the world as well as the Khumbu Icefall. Once our team is ready, we will begin to descend back to Gorak Shep where we will rest, drink and have a hearty dinner. After dinner our guides will provide the plan for the following day.

Today will be one of the most difficult, yet rewarding days of the trek (optional). This morning we will wake up early at around 5am, grab a hot drink and head out into the mountains to attempt to climb Mt. Kala Pattar, a small peak (by Himalayan standards) at 18,514 ft. which offers the best view you will get of Mt. Everest in Nepal without climbing it! You can also get magnificent views of other giants, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Chagatse and Mt. Lhotse. This portion of the trek is optional but we highly encourage participation. After the ascension, we will head back to Gorak Shep, where we will eat breakfast and pack before a gradual descent to the village of Lobuche, where we will eat lunch.

After lunch, we will continue down to the village of Pherice, where we will check into our rooms, freshen up and have free time until dinner is served. We will be ready for a well deserved, good night sleep!

This will be our last night with our local guides and porters and will be a good opportunity to say a farewell thank you and provide gratuities. Additionally, this will be a good opportunity for you to try some local “Rocksi, Chang, or Thumba”! We will dance and sing traditional songs until the night is over.

DAY 15

This morning we have breakfast and head to the airstrip for our flight back to Kathmandu. There are 2 potential scenarios for this day. Because of the uncertain nature of the weather in Lukla, sometimes flights are postponed, delayed or even canceled. If our flight is delayed or canceled, we have a contingent day and will relax in Lukla. If we do fly to Kathmandu, we will transport to our hotel and you will have the afternoon and evening free to explore the city or rest. Lunch and dinner today in Kathmandu will be on your own. If we stay in Lukla we’ll dine together for both lunch and dinner.

DAY 16

Today is our contingent day. If we wake up in Lukla, we will fly back to Kathmandu, check into our hotel, take showers and have some free time before exploring Durbar square for the afternoon. If we wake up in Kathmandu, we will have time to rest, visit Durbar square and free time for shopping until we meet for dinner. Lunch today will be on your own, but tonight will be our last night together in Nepal. We will make it a good one with a final farewell dinner in a Nepalese restaurant with cultural dancing!

GUIDES

This trip is led by expert, local Wildland guides. Our approach to international travel is to combine the best of two worlds: the dialed-in details, professionalism and consistency Wildland trips are known for; and the cultural immersion and intimate regional knowledge that only locals can provide. To excel with this approach, we vet and hire the best local guides, welcome them into the Wildland family and train them to meet our standard of excellence with every aspect of a trip. But along with managing logistics and safety, your guides will teach you about the area’s history and culture, and provide a level of familiarity and intimate detail only locals can.

Check out our Meet Our Team page for staff bios.

GUIDE WORKING PARAMETERS

Guides are required to take 8 hours off each 24-hour period to sleep, recuperate, take personal/down time…etc. In addition, as part of the 8 hours off they must sleep/rest or be in their tents/rooms uninterrupted for a minimum of 5 hours each night.

TRIP INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS

Field evacuation and repatriation insurance is required on all Nepal trips as a condition of partnership terms with our Nepali vendors. We also recommend medical insurance.

If you need to purchase field evacuation or repatriation insurance, we recommend IMG/iTravelinsured. They are one of the world’s leading providers of travel insurance and policies meet all Nepali requirements.

For information on the recommended IMG/iTravelinsured policies please click here.

For even greater information, or if you simply prefer communicating with a real, live person, feel free to contact our exclusive agent Michael Bennett. Michael will help you identify the best product for your needs, and there is no cost associated with his assistance. You may contact him at:

Email: WildLandTrekking@EasyToInsureME.com
US by Phone: 877-305-9083
Direct/International by Phone: 702-448-3664

If you already have the required insurance or wish to purchase from anyone other than IMG/iTravelinsured, we recommend careful consultation with the provider to ensure appropriate coverage. This is because many providers have a number of policy exclusions (of particular note for Nepal is to check field evacuation elevation limits).

Please bring a copy of your insurance policy to provide to your guides at the orientation meeting.

WEATHER IN NEPAL

Nepal is home to the highest mountain range in the world, the Himalayas. Kathmandu is at an elevation of 4600 feet (1400 meters), but the high points on our Nepal Treks are very high (13,000 to 18,000 feet). Because of these wild elevation changes, the temperatures and weather will vary greatly.

The average temperatures and precipitation in the Himalayan region are:

NEPALI TEA HOUSES

Tea houses are inns/guest houses with sleeping rooms and home cooked meals. They vary depending on their remoteness. Lower ones have more amenities, such as flush toilets, showers and nicer dining rooms. As we ascend, they get more rustic with simpler toilets and more basic amenities. Rooms are communal with 2 or 3 beds.

Most Incredible Experience I've Ever Had

2 years ago

This trek was the most incredible experience I have ever had. The guides and porters were amazing. I’m not sure if I left a piece of me in Nepal or I brought a piece of Nepal home with me. I do know for sure that I am forever changed for the better because of this experience.
