Trip Introduction: 12 days Everest Base Camp Trek 2023/2024 Guaranteed Departure, Low Cost, Traditional, and Historical Trekking in Nepal

12 days Everest Base Camp Trek begins and concludes in Kathmandu. The journey begins in Kathmandu with an instructive and guided pre-trip lecture, followed by a trans-Himalayan flight to Lukla, the trek's starting location. Daily hikes in and around the Gumbas/Monastery, prayer flags, a verdant forest, and stunning high snowy peaks are all part of this 12-day Everest Base Camp Tour. At dusk, local tea rooms fill up with warm warmth and wonderful local cuisine. Because acute mountain sickness is nearly always unavoidable, our 12 Day Everest Base Camp Trekking plan is designed to mitigate this risk. Acclimatization is critical to success in this field.

Trekking to the base camp of one of the world's tallest mountains is a fantastic accomplishment that is well worth the effort. Even so, expectations do not always match reality. Weather is one of the most difficult aspects of Everest Base Camp. The climatic situation of the base camp is completely unpredictable, changing every five minutes. Upper-class residents have devoted Buddhists. People in the region are not permitted to butcher animals due to differing religious beliefs. The intriguing thing is that they can consume flesh but cannot kill them. People should also be cautious of rock slides in the area.

Namche Bazaar is where we usually acclimate. This lively highland town is great for sightseeing before taking a short climb to Syangboche and Everest View Hotel opened in 1971. Hotel Everest View has been listed on the Guinness Book of World Records (2004) as the Highest Placed Hotel in the world at 13000ft. The Everest View hotel offers a 360-degree view of the awe-inspiring peaks including Mt Everest.

Then we go to Tengboche, a higher town with a monastery situated in the mountains overlooking Ama Dablam and many more mountains including Mt Everest. We then travel to Pengboche and Dingboche. We have another acclimatization day in Dingnoche. The temperature drops swiftly here, and an alpine zone crosses the tree line, followed by a combination of rock and snowy terrains. Later, we must spend the night in Lobuche before ascending the next morning to the highest settlement, Gorakshep. This is where you can refuel and prepare for the long trek to the glacier that leads to Base Camp. The vista of the glacier Khumbu Ice Fall and craggy peaks from Base Camp is magnificent. This region is particularly well-known for Kalapatthar, a fantastic location for catching the first rays of early light. From the summit of Kalapathar, you will also get an unbroken view of Mount Everest and other neighboring high peaks. Finally, on our journey back to Lukla, we'll take different routes and stay in different communities.

For decades, the mere presence of Mount Everest has captured the human race's imagination. Every year, individuals from all over the world go to Everest Base Camp to enjoy the trek. Its charm and rich history are inexplicable. The objective of every trekker is to finish the world's most beautiful trek. The 12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek is created for travelers who desire to learn about Everest's mysteries in a short length of time. The short Everest base camp journey is not tough, but it does need a great deal of patience and tenacity to finish. Every bend and turn on the route provides something fresh and beautiful to view. The adrenaline rushes, difficulties, and adventure, and if you want to leave a lasting impression by walking in the footsteps of legends? Then join Nepal Trekking Planner's flexible custom-designed trips and make history.

Is the Everest base camp trek appropriate for you?

For beginners, the trip to Everest Base Camp may be challenging, but reading a description does not portray the complete adventure. Expectations do not always reflect reality. Everyone must try and summon the confidence to do so. There is no age restriction for trekking to Everest Base Camp if you are fit and athletic. This trek is easily performed by people ranging in age from seven to seventy. Children under the age of 14 should hike with family members or hire porters to carry the heavier loads through difficult terrain, because the children will not be able to manage the heavy loads through difficult terrain, and you don't want to have to carry all of their belongings as well as your own. People in their elderly years may take longer to trek since they must be more health conscious in order to finish the trip happily. People with Uric acid or respiratory issues should exercise caution before going on a journey. Everyone must be physically and psychologically prepared before going on the voyage. Working up to being able to walk or hike for 5-6 hours without stopping is recommended.

What is the difficulty level of the 12 Days Short Everest Base Camp Trek? Can you pull it off?

12 Days Short Everest Base Camp Trek is suitable for everyone, with a little planning and perseverance, it is doable. The wonderful aspect of this adventure is that no significant technical knowledge is necessary. The sole prerequisite is the ability to walk for extended periods of time with several up-and-down treks.

Its height is what makes it so tough. This can occasionally cause severe mountain sickness during trekking. As a result, acclimating your body correctly before your next altitude effort is crucial. Maintain hydration and move slowly. The distance, however, may be safely accomplished with appropriate rest and a modest pace. The Nepal Trekking Planner guide will accompany you at all times.

How should you prepare for 12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek?

For at least two months before climbing Everest, you must prepare and perfect your physical conditioning. You will not be able to complete this challenging journey if you are not physically fit enough. Tt is demanding and requires a lot of work and commitment.

Trekking on Everest requires physical fitness because the path is long and descends steadily to high heights. We must be academically and spiritually equipped to complete the voyage.

Weather and Climate: Everest Base Camp

The Himalayan climate may be unpredictable even during the finest seasons. The greatest months in the spring will be April and May through the first week of June since the days will be longer and there will be more sunlight hours.

Temperatures can fall below freezing in the morning and at night in regions over 3,000 meters.

The fall season, from September to November, is also ideal for trekking around Everest Base Camp and other Himalayan places. The days are often clear with magnificent views, and it is a good time to climb the mountain, albeit it is considerably colder in the fall season, with intense cold in the mornings and at night when daylight is much shorter.

Local Culture and Religion in the Everest Base Camp Area

Sherpas are the indigenous inhabitants of Mount Everest and other upper Himalayan regions, the name "Sherpa" is taken from Tibetan. Sher means east and Pa means people, thus the Sherpa moved from eastern portions of Tibet to Nepal's high Himalayas in the Mid-East and Far Eastern Himalayas mountains.

The Sherpa have been farmers and herders of animals like cows and yaks for over 400 years. Their strong Buddhist faith and diverse cultures are intertwined, as you can witness while trekking through the villages. Every Sherpa community has a monastery, some of which date back more than 500 years, such as the "monastery of Thame and Pangboche settlements." Thyangboche monastery was considerably older, but it was devastated by fire in 1991 and restored to its original style.

You will pass various prayer walls and religious landmarks such as Stupas (domes) with rows of spinning prayer wheels as you move from village to hamlet. All of this contributes to the true cultural experience of your journey.

Sherpa men were the first mountain trekking guides, and they still draw many people each year.

Trekking Planner Nepal strongly advises and encourages all customers to obtain Travel and Medical Insurance in the event of unforeseen occurrences during their Himalayan journey. World Nomads Travel Insurance can provide Travel and Medical Insurance for your next trip to the Himalayan locations of Nepal.

All our treks, trekking, and tour programs feature itineraries with hotels, lodges, homestays, guest houses, and resorts, as well as camping in certain remote places. However, depending on the customers' fitness, car availability, airport delays, cancellations, inclement weather, and road or trail conditions, some days may be longer or shorter. Nepal Trekking Planner asks clients to acquire Travel and Medical Insurance while making a reservation. This is required for all trips and hikes. Insurance should cover personal injury, death, medical expenditures, and repatriation fees in any mode of transportation on emergency evacuation, such as helicopter rescue or air ambulance, as well as luggage coverage for the length of the tour/trek.

Your chosen trip destination may change from the program itinerary in severe situations. We may be compelled to reroute or cancel the trip in exceptional situations owing to political difficulties, rioting, inclement weather, destroyed roads, terrible trail conditions, or the state and condition of the porters. The firm retains the right to cancel the trip owing to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, such as a lower-than-expected number of travelers for the tours selected. Please be patient with us in this matter, and we will try our best to change the itinerary for the trip as best we can for your convenience.

Accommodations at Everest Base Camp 12 Days Trek.

All our treks, trekking paths and tour programs offer accommodation in hotels, lodges, homestays, guest homes, and resorts on their itineraries. Camping is done according to the itinerary in certain distant regions. Depending on the health and pace of the customers, vehicle availability, aircraft delays or cancellations, unfavorable or terrible weather conditions, roads, or trails, certain trails may take longer or shorter.

As a developing country, as we travel to the Himalayan area, the greenery and population density drop, which is one of the key reasons why we sometimes must sacrifice for the finest services. However, because this is a tourist route, most facilities remain accessible, albeit some may require a sacrifice. For example, 24-hour power, laundry services (because of a lack of warmth and sunlight), internet, fruits, hot showers, toilet commode, room quality, and availability are all available (standard quality rooms are found which are designed for meeting the basic requirements). The trekking planning team, on the other hand, takes every effort to deliver the greatest possible services and amenities.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp: Acclimatization and Communication.

One of the most crucial components in completing and enjoying the voyage is adapting to the environment, temperature, climate, traditions, cultures, and cuisine. We always bear in mind while planning our routes that we should not rise more than 800 meters in a single day. This may result in altitude sickness and respiratory issues. Slowing down and making stops along the road, on the other hand, helps our body adjust to variations in temperature, weather, and climate. We're not going on a trek to walk all the time, and hiring a guide doesn't mean he or she is leading and you're just following, but asking questions about the local people, their way of life, traditions, and culture is a good way to learn more about the traditions and cultures of the place we're visiting.

Foods and drinks that create bodily and emotional stress, such as diarrhea, constipation, headaches, anger difficulties, a sense of abuse, and a lack of services, must sometimes be avoided. Visitors should always mention which foods and beverages they are allergic to or do not eat before beginning on a journey and enquiring about available lodgings, as this will aid in formulating a plan B for food and beverages.

Everest Base Camp Trekking - Electricity, Internet, and Battery Recharge.

As a developing country, energy facilities are not accessible in certain areas, and even when they are, load-shedding and electricity shortages may occur due to natural or anthropogenic reasons. Carrying a power bank is advised for charging mobile phones, cameras, flashlights, and other gadget batteries.

Some establishments demand additional costs to replenish the battery because they purchase or utilize power from other sources. Generators, solar panels, and even private hydropower are being installed. Because of the power as well as the private poles and the amount of money that the locals must invest severely on poles, cables, and internet service providers, the internet demands a particular amount of payment, which varies from location to location and is not applicable everywhere.

Mountain Sickness at High Altitude (AMS).

Mountain altitude sickness may affect anyone. Because of a shortage of oxygen, the reduction in air pressure at high altitudes makes breathing difficult. It is more common above 3300m (10,000ft).

The signs and symptoms are as follows:

  •  Dizziness/headache
  •  Nausea and vomiting
  •  Tiredness and Fatigue
  •  Exhausted yet unable to sleep
  •  Loss of appetite
  •  Anger and Stress

To avoid AMS, dress correctly for the temperature, drink enough of water, eat healthily, and move gently. If the body is not feeling well, it is advisable to request relaxation or sleep. Maintain hydration and heed the tour leader's instructions and recommendations on altitude mountain sickness.

Toilet and washing facilities on the Everest base camp trip.

Every guest house has a hot shower, which might be in the shape of a shower stall or a bucket of hot water. Please bear in mind that at high heights, there may not be enough hot water for all hikers. Limit the use of hot water unless it is solar-heated for environmental reasons. Every lodge offers a washer and dryer, but you must provide your own soap. If the water is frozen, ask your guide to fetch you a bowl of warm water.

In Asian designs, toilets are generally squat. The restrooms are just outside your door. Because you're in the mountains, cleanliness may vary. Toilet paper should not be flushed. Use the trash bin inside the restroom instead.

After the trail junction leading to the Gokyo valley and the Everest base camp, we head down to the riverbed of the mighty Dudh Koshi River and climb on to Phunke Tenga through several bridges and some hamlets. Marked by water driven prayer wheels, Phunke Tenga generally serves as the resting place before taking on the steep trail leading to Tengboche.

We head on in the trail through the sighting of Musk Deer, Monal and Blue Sheep and cross the exciting suspension bridge over Imja River before reaching the settlement of Panchboche. Ancient stupa in the upper Pangboche, surrounded by trees, is a stoppage worth a short visit. Ahead in the trail we have alpine vegetation as we move through landscape with scrub juniper and tundra until we reach Dingboche. The trekking section through Somare is rather flat; after this village we cross a suspension bridge and follow the Imja River upstream as we part our way from the trail to Pheriche. Further ahead in the trail we reach Dingboche where the trail from Lobuche to the Island Peak climb meets. Dingboche is a small village with stone walled houses, cultivation fields and the exquisite view of Lhotse, Island Peak and Ama Dablam. Stay overnight in Dingboche.

Ahead of this is the most poignant section of today’s trek. An hour of trek leads us to the height of the high ground overlooking the Khumbu valley, called Chukpo Lari, where monuments are built in remembrance of the mountaineers who lost their life during their expedition to conquer Everest. The trail then descends to the western side of the valley after walking over the glacial moraines of the majestic Khumbu Glacier. Stay overnight in Lobuche.

We reach Gorakshep after trekking over the lateral moraines of the Khumbu Glacier past the Italian research centre, the rocky paths, cautiously avoiding the ice pinnacles and occasional crevasses in the Khumbu region. The trail ascends over the Lobuche Pass and then reaches to the section sandwiched by large glaciers of Changri Nup and Khumbu. Shortly ahead is the awaited gorakshep, our stoppage for lunch and the place of overnight stay for today. After refreshment we head for our ultimate destination, the Everest Base Camp. Through the rocky path and on the New Moraine Route, we trek to the base camp. Flooded with the tents and camps of the climbers in the peak season, Everest Base Camp is the destination of lifetime. The euphoric feeling of being there is beyond words and to be in the lap of the world’s tallest peak is something extraordinary. After capturing the memories of these extraordinary moments, we return back to the Gorakshep. You shall get completely lost in the beauty of the sunset visible from the base camp. Stay overnight in Gorakshep.

                    Get ready for another beautiful trekking day in the roof of the world as we trek to the Kala Patthar before making a return to the lower altitudes. Before the day breaks, we shall today get ready with our equipments and go for one of the most beautiful sunrises you will ever see. In a straight trek from Gorakshep to this small brown hill dwarfed by the Himalayas, we shall have the close up view of the mighty Everest. Ideal for photographers, the sight of Himalayas including Mt, Pumori, Lhotse, Nuptse and Changtse Peaks, the majestic Khumbu Glacier and the south-east face of Everest. Reach for the higher point of this black hill and capture as many memories as you can. After this extraordinary scenery, trek down to Gorakshep for lunch before heading down to Pheriche.  We shall descent gradually from Gorakshep , in ups and downs  and through the rocky terrain before taking exit from the vicinity of Everest at Dughla and walking straight  to Pheriche. Through the damp valley floor covered with moss, from the alpine vegetation to the sub-alpine vegetation this trek is mostly a downhill walk. Stay overnight in Pheriche.

                      The return from the vicinity of Everest continues as we depart from the beautiful Periche to the busy hub of Namche Bazaar. In this mostly downhill trek, we now are with the company of the torrential Dudh Koshi River. Our trek will be rather gradual as we won’t want to put much strain on our shaky legs and ankles. In this busy trekking trail, we shall encounter caravan of fellow trekkers, porters, locals and their pet animals like Yak used for transporting goods; make sure you give way to them.  Through the beautiful and dense forests, waterfalls, exciting and sometimes vertiginous suspension bridges festooned with prayer flags, flat and bumpy trails, gompas and monasteries, rural settlements and the culture and traditions practiced there are some of the major highlights of this section of the trek. Water driven prayer wheels, viewpoints of the Himalayas, sights of rare wild animals and strenuous stone steps shall take us to the destination of Namche Bazaar.

                        This section of a trek is the last of such trekking in this adventurous journey that climaxed in the base camp of Everest. Descent on a steep trail out of the Namche Bazaar to descent at the riverbed of a confluence of Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi River and after crossing over the high suspension bridge, we reach to Monjo where we exit the Sagarmatha National Park. Through the beautiful Benkar and past waterfalls, several suspension bridges, unique, busy and interesting villages including the popular ones such as Phakdng, Ghat, Nurning and Chheplung, Mani walls and prayer wheels, we trek up to the hill town of Namche Bazaar.

                            Everest base camp—Nice trip with Nirmal and Suman

                            This is an amazing and good trip by Nepal trekking planner. Their guide and schedule is so well and the tea house they are choosing is excellent. I had a really great and fun time in here. Coming here solo but meeting a lot of friends in here and it is a once at a lifetime experience that I ever had. Glad that I have made it to the Everest base camp thanks for the experienced and professional guide Nirmal for taking care of me all the time as well as bringing a lots of laughter during the trekking and to make the journey more memorable and remarkable.Thanks for the porter Suman as well since two of them have made my days and trips more enjoying and exploring more of the Nepal traditional culture.Thank you for trekking planner for organising such great tours for our solo trekkers and definitely there will be next time for joining this company tours again!!!!!

                            Everest base camp trek

                            I had a great time with these guys. From the moment I got off the plane they were waiting for me and took good care of me. Nirmal was my guide who looked after me on the Trek ensuring I got everything I wanted out of my experience. They evan managed to organise me a helicopter back from Lukla as the weather was deteriorating and looked unlikely any flights would be operating. When back in Kathmandu they were only a phone call away when I wanted to organise day trips. Thank you so much to all the team for making my trip in Nepal so enjoyable
