Everest base camp trekking

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Nepal? It’s Mt. Everest. Everyone wants to see sometime in their life the world’s tallest mountain and no wonder. Mt. Everest rises to a massive height of 8,848 meters (29,029 ft.) But its majesty is more than just height. It is also massive! It is a commanding presence. It is no wonder that the Sherpa people called it Sagarmatha, meaning Mother Goddess of the World!

The trek will take you in just 11 days to the finest lookout point to truly see Mt. Everest and the surrounding peaks. It is more than just a walk to the mountain. It is a total immersion into the culture and beauty of the eastern Himalayas.Mt. Everest is not the only mountain there that tops 8000 meters. It is surrounded by other massive peaks, but none of them for all of their size can truly compare to the magnificence of Mt. Everest.

Cozy Guide Nepal is pleased to be able to offer you this amazing trek. For over 20 years, we have been making this trek into the Everest region. The Everest Circuit Trek is the fastest route in and out without a helicopter.

Since you’ve always wanted to see Mt. Everest, why not make it your plan to come and visit Mt. Everest. It is a journey of a lifetime, and Cozy Guide Nepal can fulfill this dream for you!

 

  • Day 01:  FLY TO LUKLA (2750 m/9,022 ft.), TREK TO PHAKDING (2630 m/8,639 ft.)The journey to the world’s tallest mountain begins when your representative of Cozy Guide Nepal picks you up from your hotel and takes you directly to the Domestic Airport here in Kathmandu. You will be boarding a flight to Lukla airport, the gateway to Mt. Everest.It’s a short flight of around 45 minutes, but what a route! The plane literally flies along the backbone of the eastern Himalayas as you gaze from your window seat at the impressive snowcapped peaks. The plane lands at Lukla airport, and your trek begins.It’s surprising that today you go downhill to reach the village of Phakding which is where we will spend the night. The journey takes you through dense mountain jungles of pine and rhododendron. There are occasional views of the high mountains, especially as you come to some rock outcroppings. Phakding is a Sherpa village where you can wander around and explore on your own.
  • Day 02: TREK TO NAMCHE BAZAR (3440 m/11,286 ft.) Today is a full day of trekking as we make our way to the premier village of the Sherpa community. This is the ancient capital of the Khumbu region. The village has grown significantly over the years, and now features an ATM machine, bakery and other shops where you can find some interesting souvenirs of the region. We enter Sagarmatha National Park where our permits are checked. We are now clear to enter this national park which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We cross some suspension bridges over fast flowing mountain streams, including the Dudh Koshi River. We will trek through more jungle today with plenty of views of the mountains in Khumbu region. Trekking time is around 6 – 7 hours. We will stay two nights in Namche Bazar.
  • Day 03: ACCLIMATIZATION DAY As we rise in elevation, it is necessary that we take an acclimatization day to allow our bodies to adjust to the higher elevation. The air is much thinner up here and the lack of oxygen can cause Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS). AMS can be fatal if ignored, but if we allow our bodies to adjust, it’s not a problem. Today we do some hiking. We can explore the village of Namche Bazar along with the interesting Sherpa Culture Museum and the Climber’s Museum. In addition, we will take a walk up the hill to visit the world class Everest View Hotel where you will enjoy a magnificent view of the world’s highest mountain. Return to your guest house for the evening as you prepare for tomorrow’s trek.
  • Day 04:TREK TO TENGBOCHE (3867 m/12,687 ft) We begin our journey once more toward Mt. Everest. Yesterday, you saw the mountain from the hill above Namche Bazar. Today we will be moving closer to it. Our destination is the village of Tengboche, which has the largest monastery in the region.We continue to gain in elevation. Here we have left the jungles behind as the landscape is becoming more and more bare the higher we go. We see mostly low lying juniper bushes. But as we leave the forests, we get to see more and more of the amazing snowcapped peaks.Tengboche is truly a beautiful setting. Behind the monastery is the most wonderful panoramic view of the world’s highest peaks, including Mt. Everest. The monastery was destroyed in 1989 by an electrical fire, but it was rebuilt with donations from around the world.Tonight we will spend the night at a local tea house where we can appreciate the view, watching both sunset and sunrise in the morning. Trekking time is around 5 – 6 hours.
  • Day 05:  TREK TO PHERICHE (4371 m/14,341 ft) It’s a day of climbing as we make our way to the village of Pheriche. The village is located above the Tsola River. Pheriche was a farming village where the residents raise yak as well as grow potatoes and buckwheat. It is a popular place for trekkers to stop as they can overlook the beautiful Tsola River valley below as well as the mighty Himalayas. There is also a small hospital that is staffed by foreign volunteers in the village, which was funded by the Japanese in 1975.We spend the night here at a guest house, enjoying the local hospitality as well as a good, hot meal. Trekking time is 6 – 7 hours.
  • Day 06:  TREK TO LOBUCHE (4940 m/16,210 ft.) There’s no doubt about it. To reach the roof of the world, you have to do a lot of climbing! And we certainly do as we make our way higher and higher in the Khumbu region. The region is rather primitive as we are in a very isolated area. The views are great. Of special interest is that we can see several peaks that bear the name of Mt. Lobuche (Lobuche Far East, Lobuche East, Lobuche West and Lobuche Kang).The village is at the edge of the Khumbu Glacier.Trekking time today is six hours.
  • Day 07: CLIMB MT. KALAPATHAR (5545 m/18,192 ft.) TREK TO PHERICHE Today we will climb a trekking peak. A trekking peak is a mountain that is less than 6000 meters and needs no special equipment or training to ascend. Mt. Kalapathar is a very popular trekking peak because it offers the most stunning panoramic view of Mt. Everest and the Khumbu region. It is not a difficult peak to trek, with the path making its way on a series of switchbacks. From on top of Mt. Kalapathar, you enjoy the most superb views of all the surrounding mountains including Mt. Everest.Once we finish descending the mountain, we make our way back to the village of Pheriche where we will spend the night. Trekking (including climbing time) is around 6 hours.
  • Day 08: TREK TO THYANBOCHE ((3867 m/12,687 ft) Thyanboche is another name for Tengboche with is fabulous views and fascinating monastery. We are making good time today as we are descending from our high point. The landscape is still high alpine with plenty of great views of the mountains along the way. We start to see more vegetation, but it still is low juniper bushes and other low trees. Trekking time is between 6 – 7 hours as we make our way to our lodge for the night.
  • Day 09: TREK TO JORSALA We’re taking a different route today, bypassing Namche Bazar as we make our way toward Lukla. The jungles are starting to return today as we descend lower and lower. We can still see mountains peaks, but now there are more farms along the way. Trekking time today is 6 – 7 hours as we lodge at the farming village of Jorsala.
  • Day 10:TREK TO LULKA (2750 m/9,022 ft.) It’s our final day of trekking as we make our way to the village of Lukla. Tomorrow we fly out, but today we get to enjoy one last day in the lower elevations of the Khumbu region. We leave Sagarmatha National Park partway through today’s trek. We continue to find more villages to walk through. It’s a shorter day, only 5 – 6 hours before we reach our lodge in Lukla
  • Day 11:  FLY TO KATHMANDU Congratulations! You’ve done it! You have climbed a trekking mountain and have beheld Mt. Everest in its full glory. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that you have achieved this great accomplishment. Many dream of this opportunity, but you have done it!
