Everest Base Camp Trek - 13 Days

Trip Overview

Everest Base Camp is the most popular adventure destination that attracts thousands of travelers from all around the World. Mount Everest's soaring summit has been always wondered for adventure lovers. The Everest Base Camp Trek also makes it possible for the novice trekkers to explore this natural wonder with experts and well-trained trekking guides. Simply breathtaking scenery with parades of glistening peaks, stunning glaciers around, ancient Buddhist Monasteries with the fascinating Sherpa hospitality, their habitat, culture, and tradition are the main attractions.

Trekking to the lap of Mount Everest is not easy but with strong willpower and a couple of acclimatization days in between, makes your adventure journey possible. You start this trek from 30 min flight to Lukla, the gateway of the Khumbu region. The trail then ascends through deep rhododendron forest, small Sherpa settlements, and farmlands. Then you enter Sagarmatha National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and reach Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,287ft).

As you gradually climb higher the temperature drops gradually down. The greenery changes to alpine shrub and the scenery becomes more dramatic towards the last Sherpa settlement called Gorakshep.

Next early morning you will climb up to Kala Patthar (5545m/18192ft), which offers the breathtaking views of Everest (8,848m/29,028ft) and other snowcapped peaks.

Everest Base Camp Trek - 13 Days
Rebecca Clifford, UK

I felt very lucky to start out the 2017 new year with a bang doing the Everest BC trek with Amazing Nepal Trek. I have no exact word to explain that incredible journey. 

From the moment we landed at Kathmandu airport, we were so well taken care of. We didn’t have to worry about anything as everything was sorted for us I.e shuttles, accommodation, food. 

If you are planning to go to Nepal, I would recommend strongly doing your tour with this company. I felt more lucky to have Prem as my trekking guide. He took such amazing care of us throughout the trek. He was not only a guide, he became a good friend. Guides definitely make or break the trip, and I definitely would not have made it to EBC and Kala Pathar without him. I can’t recommend Prem enough if you want a safe and unforgettable journey!

It has been my dream to do EBC Trekking since my childhood. This dream was made possible this year 2018 by the great team from Amazing Nepal trek & Expedition. Our trip started from a short flight that took us from Kathmandu into the Khumbu Valley.  The team from Amazing Nepal Trek & Expedition, the guide and porter were there to help us on every step. We got the best service from the day we booked the package right until the day we flew back from Nepal. The inquiries were answered to promptly with helpful tips and recommendation through emails. My friend and I had such a memorable time during the trek. The hospitality and care received from the team, was amazing as the name is.  We are grateful for all what they had done. Once again, Thanks a lot, Amazing Nepal Team

Just completed Everest Base Camp Trek with Amazing Nepal. It as our best decision ever to go with this local company. Their knowledge of the area and local resources made the trip go incredibly smooth from start to finish. The guides were very attentive to all of our needs. They were supportive and encouraged us to go at our own pace which ensured that we had a 100% success rate with all of our team members. I can't thank Amazing Nepal team enough for making this a great memory and we look forward to future trips with them.

We just completed the Everest Base Camp trek and were very happy with the Amazing Nepal Trek team. From our first emails with Mr. Santosh to our first meeting on arrival in Nepal...Mr. Santosh was professional and ensured our trip was perfect. Our guide Mr. Prem was even better than we could have ever expected. He knew many people along the way and always tried to accommodate whatever request we had. He was informative and kind. He has done over 100 trips to EBC from the time he was a porter and now including his trips as a guide. His smile and his laugh brightened our days and we are so happy to have done this trek with him. Our porter Yubraj was also phenomenal. He was always close ahead or behind with our big bag. He is also very experienced with over 60 EBC treks. It turned out after our 11 day trek that we were stuck in Lukla due to weather disrupting flights. Mr. Santosh and the team were able to arrange a helicopter to fly us and some other clients back to Kathmandu. We were very fortunate to leave as only two heli flights left that day and there were 300+ people waiting in Lukla. This team went above and beyond and we would recommend them over and over. In fact we're hoping to send our parents with them next year! Thank you Mr. Santosh, Prem, and Yubraj!

Decided to do something 'epic' with my daughter for my 50th - perfect choice!
Santosh responded fully and quickly to all questions prior to the trip - very professional. 
On arrival in Nepal, we were completely looked after - met at airport, lovely quiet hotel near the busy Thamel central area, down jacket and sleeping bag arranged, flights to Lukla. 
Prem (our guide) and Dhurba (our porter) were amazing. Each evening we had a prep meeting for the next day. They made sure food and accommodation en route were on point and we enjoyed playing cards and sharing time with them. Fabulous guys - we couldn't have done it without them. 
The team had even arranged a birthday cake for me to cut at EBC (we arrived there on my birthday) which we shared with an expedition team and Sherpas in Camp. 
Any problems which arose were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Totally professional and highly recommended 10/10

My husband, daughter and I trekked Everest Base Camp last month. It was the most amazing holiday I have ever been on. Everything about it was fabulous. I would like to thank Amazing Nepal for everything they did for us. Our holiday would never have been the same without them. Our guide Prem was “out of this world” amazing! The coolest guy ever who kept us safe the whole trip. Our porters were the sweetest, who always made sure we had everything we needed. I 100% recommend Amazing Nepal and if I go back I will contact no one else. Thanks again.
