From Namche, the trail continues to Tengboche Monastery, one of the most significant Buddhist monasteries in the area. As you ascend further, you'll reach Gorak Shep, the last stop before the base camp. From Gorak Shep, you'll make the final ascent to the base camp and the iconic viewpoint of Kala Patthar.

While the distance of the trek may seem manageable, it's important to keep in mind the altitude and terrain. The trek involves steep ascents and descents, as well as challenging weather conditions. Altitude sickness is a real concern, and it's crucial to acclimatize properly to avoid serious health problems. It's also important to pack appropriately and have a good level of physical fitness.

Good to Know

Kathmandu to Lukla Flight

Lukla airport, at 2860 metres, is the world's scariest airport. Also known as Tenzing Hillary Airport, Lukla airport has unpredictable weather conditions. Even during the ideal weather of Spring and Autumn, the weather worsens sometimes. During such situations, you must have a day as a buffer day to cope with the situation. If you book the Best Everest Base Camp trek 2023/2024 with Dream Heaven, we'll arrange the itinerary accordingly.

Also, in early and late Autumn, Lukla receives drizzles and snowfall. Thus, flight cancellation might be a headache for late Autumn Everest trekkers.

If you're on a budget trek, you won't have any other choice than to wait for the weather to turn good. But, if you can afford it, Kathmandu to Lukla helicopter flight is doable on minor weather issues. Unlike aircraft, a helicopter flies at a lower altitude and takes you to Lukla comfortably. Dream Himalayan offers you helicopter flight services to Lukla and one day Everest base camp helicopter tour in Autumn/Spring 2023 at the best prices.

Accommodations in Everest Base Camp Trek

16 Days Classic Everest Base Camp trek provides tea house-based accommodations. Tea houses, often called lodges, offer decent to minimal lodging and meals. Locally run tea houses remain open throughout the year except for some, who close them during harsh winter.

Everest trekking route is the most crowded trek route in Nepal. Thus, twin sharing rooms in tea houses for overnight sleep are most preferred. You'll get hot showers and the internet at Lukla and Namche. Don't expect the accommodation to be luxurious at places like Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorak Shep. We'll assure you that you'll get comfortable overnight sleep.

Travel Insurance for EBC Trek

High altitude trekking is unpredictable as things may turn worse with no notice. Thus, to avoid health issues and get immediate attention, you must have international travel insurance.

In emergencies in the Everest Base Camp trek, you'll get a helicopter evacuation. Also, your insurance compensated for the aftermath of medical bills and other health treatments. Thus, reasons, purchase travel insurance before leaving for Everest trekking.

Altitude Sickness in Travel to Everest Base Camp

Everest Base Camp sits over 5,364 metres. Kala Patthar, the ultimate sightseeing location of Everest viewpoint, sits at 5,644 metres. Thus, the lack of oxygen and other factors makes up situations for you that you'll likely get altitude sickness.

Altitude sickness in the Everest region is unavoidable. From 3,500 metres, the oxygen level decreases and fosters AMS. Not every trekker gets altitude sickness at this level, but for most, the minor symptoms start to appear. You'll feel headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, shortness of breathing, etc.


    • Q1. Could I trek as solo women, is it safe?

      There is never issue trekking with solo women or join in the gathering. All aides and doormen are fair, trust commendable, solid and deliberately decided for your treks, you won’t confront any issue trekking with your aide, and you will meet numerous likeminded explorers amid the trail.

    • Everest trekking is an easy to moderate grade trek. The hike from Lukla to Phakding and Namche Bazar is easy. The serene hiking trails to Namche are best for every age group.

      But, the EBC trek route past Namche till Lobuche is moderate grade. The risk of altitude sickness makes the hike arduous. Also, hiking on the rugged terrain of Everest tires us.

      With proper preparations and fitness, novice trekkers can also trek to Kala Patthar.


    • Everest base camp trek, 14 days standard package costs USD 1450. This price gets lower if you reserve the trip in groups.

      The EBC trekking is highly customizable. It lets you extend the trip to the Gokyo Lakes trek, Everest Three High Passes Trek, stay a few days at Namche and Lukla, and more. Also, you can first trek to Everest Base Camp and return by helicopter to Kathmandu.

      Hence, your preference for this trek makes the price difference.

    • March, April, and May are the best months for the Everest base camp trek. Also, this trek is best during September, October, and November.
      The clear weather, stable temperature, and best viewing of mountains make these months the best time in the year.

    • Yes. Everest trekking is doable even if you don't hire a local travel agency. The ideal route filled with people will accompany you even if you trek EBC solo.

      The only thing you have to take into concern is altitude sickness. Prepare yourself for this trek physically and mentally to avoid the risk of injuries and AMS.

    • If you feel uncomfortable while hiking, report immediately to your guide and seek medical attention. Our Everest base camp trek guides come with first aid and basic medication knowledge. Further, if the situation worsens, you'll get a helicopter evacuation immediately.

      To avoid altitude sickness, drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and caffeinated drinks. Also, consume electrolytes and oral rehydration water solutions to maintain the essential body ions. Eat as much and frequently as to keep up with the dietary requirements.

      With our proper acclimatisation on the itinerary, you'll get plenty of rest and care from the trip guide.

    • Everest trekking for Autumn 2023 is now open. Dream Heaven Adventure, a registered local tour agency, is recently receiving reservations and inquiries from trekkers for this trek. Since we operate this tour with limited trekkers for fixed departures, book your Everest Base Camp Trek today.

    • During the peak trekking season (September to November) and (March to May), the trail can be quite crowded, with many trekkers making their way up to Base Camp. Accommodation can be scarce, and the lodges along the trail can get quite busy, so it's essential to book in advance. Additionally, you might have to share your room with other trekkers or sleep in communal areas, such as dining rooms.

      However, during the offseason (December to February), the trail is less crowded, and you might be able to enjoy a quieter trekking experience. Nevertheless, it's important to note that the winter months can be quite harsh, with cold temperatures and snowfall, which can make the trek more challenging.

    • Here are some of the essential items you should bring along with you during the trek to Everest Base Camp:

      Clothing: You will need a variety of clothing items for the climb, including a warm jacket, insulated pants, a hat, gloves, and thermal underwear. You will also need hiking boots, socks, and a rain jacket.

      Sleeping gear: You will need a warm sleeping bag, a sleeping pad, and a pillow to ensure a good night's rest.

      Trekking gear: You will need a backpack to carry your gear, a trekking pole, and a headlamp for navigating the trail at night.

      Personal care items: These include sunscreen, lip balm, toilet paper, and wet wipes.

      First-aid kit: This should include basic medical supplies, such as bandages, antiseptic, and pain relievers.

      High-altitude medicine: You may need medication to prevent altitude sickness, such as acetazolamide.

      Snacks and hydration: Bring plenty of high-energy snacks and water bottles or a hydration bladder to keep you fueled and hydrated during the climb.

      Camera: You'll want to capture the stunning views and memories of your climb, so bring a camera or smartphone with a good camera.

      It's also important to keep in mind that packing too much can be a burden, so try to pack only the essentials and keep your gear as lightweight as possible. Additionally, make sure to check with your trekking company for any specific gear requirements they may have.

      Everest Base Camp Trek

      We just returned from an amazing Everest base camp trek that dream heaven planned for our group. Everything was excellent from beginning of the trek to its ending. Transportation, flight, hotels and food were managed appropriately. Everest region is truly majestic, rich both from cultural and natural perspective. We were rewarded culturally, as well as naturally throughout the trek. Warm hospitality of locals, breath-taking views of snow covered white peaks are more than fantastic. I’m recommending Everest base camp trek, and this trekking agency in particular, to all enthusiastic travellers.

      Trip Beyond Expectation

      Had a fantastic trek to Everest base camp. To be honest, this was only possible because of friendly and cooperative nature of Dream Heaven. Deepak is the man who made it possible.

      He was exceptionally experienced and informative. His friendly nature made us feel like we were trekking with a lifelong friend who happened to know the Everest region. Anyway, Dream Heaven is highly recommended for those who are eager to trek the Everest region.
