Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest region of Nepal is one of the best known trekking routes in the world. This is also the home of the highest mountains in the world attracting trekkers, climbers, researchers over the years. Also, the region gives insight into the lifestyle of the Sherpa people who are considered the best mountaineers in the world. Many trekkers used to walk in from the roadhead at Jiri, through the lovely rolling hills of the Solu region. But, nowadays most of the trekkers prefer to fly into Lukla to start their trek. A few days of walking beyond Lukla we reach to the Sagarmatha National Park and the town of Namche Bazaar, where we take a day to acclimatize to the high altitude. From here the route branches out towards the village of Thame, the birth place of Late Tenzing Norgey who first climbed Mt. Everest with Late Edmund Hillary in 1953 and set the world’s record in the history of mountaineering. The other route takes onto the two main Khumbu routes, one goes to Gokyo Lake or another towards the Everest base camp. Beyond Namche Bazaar lies the Sherpa village called Khumjung and further on the famous monastery of Thyangboche.

Jiri Everest Base camp trek – 26 Days

Starting with 8 hour (188 km/118 miles) drive to Jiri (2,100m/6,888ft) the Jiri to Everest base camp trek follows the traditional route taken by the early Everest expeditions and still serves as main artery to the roadless Sagarmatha (Everest) region. Known as the Solu-Khumbu it is the home of the Sherpas. This relatively tiny society of 8,000 people is the best known and most admired of all Nepal’s ethnic groups. According to their oral history Sherpas migrated to high valleys south of Mt. Everest from eastern Tibet about 450 years ago, hence the name Sharpa, “peoples of the Himalaya.” Many families along this route have converted their homes into trekkers’ lodges catering to foreign trekkers. Although a popular trekking route the Everest area is visited by only some 8,000 visitors each year – a fraction of the number that visits the Annapurna region. Trekking through the Sherpa villages we share many of their hearths and enjoy their generous hospitality. Trekking in from Jiri has the advantage of helping you to acclimatize en route. This trek is about 190km/120 miles long and the total altitude gained on the innumerable uphill portions totals 9000m – much higher even than Mt. Everest! After Namche we follow the main trail to the base camp. It is a legendary trek to a legendary destination.

Outline Itinerary

Day 08: Nhuntala to Kharikhola (2050m). The amazing views of Karyolong (to the north), Kusum Kanguru, Kyachung Kang, Khumbila and many more peaks with rapidly descending to Dudh Koshi River and crossing suspension bridge and experienced densely populated by Rai and Sherpa villages. Distance: 12km/7.5miles approximately 6 hours walk.
Day 09: Kharikhola to Surkhe (2300m). The trail descends to cross suspension bridge over a stream and then climbs very steeply for an hour to Bupsa. The trail rises through forested stretch alive with monkeys and birds. Distance: 10km/6.6miles approximately 7 ½ hours walk
Day 10: Surkhe to Phakding (2650m). We go through Phakding in the hope of dining a quiet place for the night (we are now in the most popular section of the trail) where we camp by the river. Distance: 11km/7miles approximately 7 hours walk.
Day 11: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3450m). We continue north following the Dudh Kosi river and on to Jorsale where we enter the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park. From here it is a short walk to the confluence of two rivers, the lmja Drangpa (Imja Khola) and the Nangpo Tsangpo (Bhote Kosi) followed by a steep climb (for about 2hrs.) to Namche Bazaar, the main town in the Khumbu region. Namche is a prosperous Sherpa town and an important trading centre with a weekly Saturday market. Distance: 10.5km/6.5miles approximately 5 hours walks.
Days 12: In Namche Bazaar to acclimatize. Namche Bazaar is tucked away between two ridges amongst the giant peaks of the Khumbu. Once named the ‘Trekkers Mecca of Nepal, Namche now boasts an abundance of lodges and souvenir shops. It is an ideal place to spend a rest day, acclimatising to the new altitude of 3450m before heading off towards Gokyo. Options for acclimatisation walks include a visit to Khunde Hospital and also the one hour walk up to the Everest Hotel above Namche for the sunset view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest.
Days 13: Namche Bazaar to Phortse Tenga (3640m). A very spectacular day in terms of scenery. The main trail out of Namche heads north to Everest. Following this trail, a short climb to a crest reveals a wonderful view towards Everest and Lhotse, whilst nearer at hand our route is a Yak trail, contouring around the hillside. The way to Gokyo is via Phortse Tenga and follows this main trail for a while longer, passing many traders selling Tibetan handicraft, to a crossroads high above the Dudh Kosi (Milk River). The main trail to Everest drops down the hill to Phunki Thanga, whereas our trail climbs to cross the Mon La to reach Phortse Tenga. The Nepal Kingdom Foundation is involved with various projects in this area. An extra night is spent here to see how the community lives and also to further acclimatize.
Day 14: Phortse to Machermo (4410m).  From Phortse Tenga we climb steadily along the side of the valley, Rhododendron forests giving way to scrub juniper as altitude increases. The trail passes many summer settlements (yersa), used when yaks are taken to these pastures to graze in the summer months. Ahead of us are excellent views of Cho Oyu while back down the valley are the peaks of Khantega and Thamserku, both over 21,500ft. / 7481m.
Day 15: Rest day in Machermo. We plan is to stay at Machermo for an extra day to acclimatise. There are plenty of possibilities for exploration above the camp. Just above the village there is an excellent view encompassing Cho-Oyu (8210m) and all the mountains that flank the Ngozumpa Glacier.
Day 16: Machermo to Gokyo (4750m). Rested, we head for the holy lakes at Gokyo. We follow a very scenic path to Pangka (4548m) and then descend slightly, following one of the melt-water Rivers which flow down the west side of the Ngozumpa Glacier. We climb a steep rocky incline into the ablation valley by the side of the glacier, passing the first of the holy lakes. We soon arrive at the second of the lakes, crossing the path that heads across the glacier to the Cho La – our route to Lobuche and Everest, later in the trek. The third lake is known as Dudh Pokhari and on its east shore is the summer settlement of Gokyo (4791m). Walking by the side of the lake, the scenery is magnificent with the summits of Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang reflected in its emerald green waters. There are several dwellings, including two lodges that boast solar shower and heating.
Day 17: Excursion to Gokyo Ri (5483m). We leave camp just after first light, crossing the ablation valley and following a zig zag path up the hillside. As we climb, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu slowly come into view. From the summit of Gokyo Ri we have one of the finest views of Everest to be had in the Khumbu. Some say it is a finer view than that from Kala Pattar, but you will be able to judge for yourself. For those who still have some energy, there are more good views to be had by dropping back down to the main path and following it north to the fourth and fifth of the Gokyo lakes, the latter being about three hours from Gokyo.
Day 18: Gokyo to Thangnak (4680m). Fit and acclimatised, we leave Gokyo to cross the Ngozumpa Glacier. We descend to the second lake and drop down onto the glacier. The route across the glacier is well marked by cairns and in places; the path is actually quite well defined. We climb off the glacier by a small dwelling known as Thagna and follow a shallow valley to our camp by a small Kharka.
Day 19: Thangnak Cho-la Pass (5368m) to Lobuche (4928m). Early start is necessary as not only do we have to cross the Cho-La Pass of 5368m, but we also have to make the long descent to reach Lobuche. Continuing up the valley, we follow a ridge to our right, at approximately 5000 metres and an old lateral moraine, before beginning the rocky scramble to the pass. From the pass there are excellent views westwards across to Rowaling and of Ama Dablam to the south-east. The descent from the pass involves the crossing of a small glacier (often snow covered) which is fairly straightforward. There are more excellent views of Everest and Nuptse as we descend to the grazing pastures below. The way to Lobuche contours the grassy slopes of Chola Tso to join up with the main Everest trail from Dugla. On route we pass a memorial to those Sherpas who have died on Mount Everest. The trail flattens out and follows the lateral moraine on the west side of the Khumbu Glacier to Lobuche.
Day 20: Lobuche to Gorak Shep (5184m). To reach our next objective, Kalapattar (5545m), the trail at first follows the valley beside the Khumbu Glacier, and offers superb views of the surrounding mountains, especially where the path is forced to rise to cross a tributary glacier. We stop for lunch at our camping place for the night, Gorak Shep. Later in the afternoon, when the sunset colours begin to appear on Everest, we make our way to the top of one of the finest viewpoints for Everest, the hill known as Kala Pattar (5549m). As the light begins to fade we stroll back to Gorak Shep and have an early night in preparation for our trek to Everest Base Camp the following day.
Day 21: Excursion to Everest B.C (5357m). For the trek to Everest Base Camp a very early start is required, as it takes several hours on a trail alongside the Khumbu Glacier to reach the traditional base camp site. On the return leg we can take a higher route to get a spectacular view of the Khumbu icefall and of the route to the south Col. Returning to Lobuche for our night’s camp.
Day 22: Lobuche to Pangboche (3985m). Down hill most of the way, past Duglha and descending to Pheriche. The Himalayan Rescue, Association has a trekker’s aid post here and it is quite interesting to visit. After lunch we cross the Khumbu Khola on a wooden suspension bridge and follow the Imja Khola to the village of Pangboche.
Day 23: Pangboche to Namche Bazar (3450m). We continue to follow the river and after crossing, climb up through birch and rhododendron forest to the ridge where Tengboche (“Great High Place”) sits magnificently. This site is the spiritual and social centre for the people of the surrounding area. From here are marvellous views of most of the giant peaks in the area. From Tengboche we descend to the bridge over the Dudh Kosi at Phunki where there are water driven prayer wheels, then climb and contour around the hillside to Namche.
Day 24: Namche Bazaar to Lukla (2,850m). From Namche Bazaar the trail descends steeply to the village of Jorsale. Passing the villages of Phakding (2640m) and Choplung, we reach Chaunrikharka and the trail that cuts up to the airstrip at Lukla. We will camp on the lawn of a lodge at Lukla.
