DIFFICULTY

Challenging

You'll need to be fit and able to hike all day for the full duration. This coupled with altitude, make this trek particularly challenging.

Hike undulating trails, cross suspension bridges, navigate glaciers and dodge yaks as you trek through mountaineering history

Drown in the dramatic mountain views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Mount Everest - the tallest mountain in the world

Ascend from Everest Base Camp to Kala Patthar at 5550m for views of Everest that only a select few will ever see

    This was a great experience! The guides and porters, led by Prem, did an excellent job planning and executing the trek and ensuring that everybody was successful. All upfront communication with MBA and the local team was quick and effective, which really made this trip easier to plan for. Would definitely recommend!

    Paula, May 2022

    The whole experience was amazing! The Nepali team (Prem, Nima, Bishnou, Ramesh and our porters) really made the whole experience so great for us! We also had such a fabulous group of people on the trip! Cannot recommend this trip highly enough if you want a really rewarding challenge and EBC is on the bucket list!

    Will, May 2022

    A great trip with very friendly guides and porters. Would recommend to one and all

    Dominika, May 2022

    A truly wonderful experience. Our guide, Prem & Team could not have done enough for us to make this trip safe, enjoyable and possible. Definitely one I will cherish and remember forever!

    Thomas, May 2022

    I would recommend this trip with MBA as it went like clockwork and was very well organized with excellent guides

    Lauren, April 2022

    An incredible adventure. It's cold, you will be uncomfortable but it's so worth it. The guides were great, always looking out for us and helping when we felt ill. Nepal has to be the most beautiful place I've ever been, the entire trip was like living in a desktop screensaver.

    Connor, April 2022

    This was an amazing trip!! I have been waiting over two years for this trip and it was well worth the wait. Our local guides were amazing and helped throughout the whole trip. I will have very fond memories of this trip!!

    Jessica, April 2022

    I’ve rated the trip five stars due to the lifetime memories, personal lessons learnt, people I met and unforgettable scenery. However I also want to be transparent with my experience for those researching the trip for themselves. The positives: The guides - Sunil and Ngima were incredible and looked after us from start to finish. The views are everything you could imagine and more. It’s extremely well organised, everything has been thought through - from taxi pickup at the airport to drop off, the local team were always on hand to sort things out at the drop of a hat. I you make fantastic friendships within the group. The negatives: These are subjective but want to mention them as I’d have liked to know when I was looking at reviews. The sanitary conditions in the tea houses are at times, appalling - not something that can be helped due to people being ill but just be prepared for that. The difficult is much higher than described, in fact due to walking so slowly to adjust to the altitude the physical hiking isn’t an issue - the difficulty is the altitude and just packing away your sleeping bag leaves you breathless towards the top, again that’s subjective I suppose but mentally and physically it’s an extremely difficult trip when you get close to the top. Bits of advice: Take a set of normal non hiking clothes for your free time in Kathmandu. Poles are essential, I can’t stress this enough but you can buy them over there for a few quid. I recommend a Lifestraw water bottle. Do not use Monzo, the ATMs over there sometimes don’t have enough money to withdraw what you need and so a cancelled transaction at the ATM still counts towards your daily withdrawal limit, I was left with no money because of this and needed to resort to my credit card to withdraw money.

    Viktorija Juod, March 2022

    Lifetime experience, adorable views, nice people. Unforgettable vacation.

    Ashley Davis, March 2022

    A very memorable and spiritual experience. We had prime hosts and I recommend giving this trip a go. You won't forget it. Tough yet surprising uplifting, put it on your wish list now. Eat the world's best grilled cheese sandwiches and you will thank me later.

    What is the food like?

    Breakfast is usually either hot porridge, muesli or Tibetan bread served with an omelette or boiled eggs. The menus in the teahouses are very similar at every stop and there will usually be a choice of traditional Nepalese dhal bhat (a mixed plate of lentils, rice, vegetables and pickles - delicious and healthy), Nepalese dumplings (momo’s), mixed noodles, pasta and even pizza. Although meat is available at some teahouses, we suggest you ask your guide for advice about consumption as it tends to depend on how far it has travelled as to whether it is a safe option.

    It is possible to eat vegan food while trekking however you should let you guide know so they can assist when ordering - the options will be limited but dhal bhat is likely going to be your go-to staple. And of course, bringing along some extra snacks is advisable.

    What is the accommodation like?

    In Kathmandu

    You’ll stay in a centrally located tourist hotel in the heart of Thamel, close to the main shopping area and heritage sites.

    In Manthali

    You will stay at the Manthali Resort in safari-tents. There is a swimming pool on site.

    On the trek

    Generally, most adventures to Nepal are based in remote areas where the accommodation will be basic. On the trek you will stay in teahouses - mountain lodges that tend to have a communal dining area and basic toilets.

    The rooms are sorted by gender however if there is an odd number in the group, they may occassionally be mixed. There’s no heating so you'll need your warm sleeping bag. Wifi and hot showers are often available at a small cost, and you can usually charge your phone up, again, you guessed it, for a cost. So remember to take an adapter.

    Upgrades

    For solo travellers looking for their own space, an optional private room can be booked for $26USD per person per night (subject to availability). This is only for the 2 x nights in Kathmandu and is subject to availability. Please request this at the time of booking.

    Day 1

    Arrive in Kathmandu

    After checking in you'll have a pre-departure meeting with your guides to run through the final plans and arrangements for the trek. You'll finish the day with a group dinner to get to know your team for the next few weeks.

    Day 2

    Journey to Manthali

    You'll have the morning free to explore a little more of Kathmandu before jumping on the bus and heading to Manthali. This remote region is where most Lukla flights now depart from and you'll spend the night in safari tents near to the small airport so you're ready to jump on the first flight in the morning.

    Day 3

    Trek to Phakding

    Hiking

    4hrs · 7.5km · 610m up · 830m down

    Today starts with a short flight to Lukla Airport in the Everest region. After meeting the other crew members you'll start your trek, passing through the prosperous village of Lukla before reaching Phakding on the Dudh Kosi River. You'll spend the night in the village and should have time to visit some of the nearby monasteries.

    Day 4

    Namche

    Hiking

    6hrs · 10.5km · 1670m up · 880m down

    Start the day with a walk through beautiful pine forests and along the track to the Dudh Koshi River. One of the (many) bridges is the famous Hillary Suspension Bridge with a particularly epic viewpoint of the gleaming Mount Thamserku (6618 m). From here you'll continue through the village of Jorsale before a challenging uphill climb to Namche Bazaar, where you'll get your first glimpse of Everest.

    Day 5

    Acclimatise and explore Namche (3440m)

    Today will be a rest day in order to acclimatise to the altitude, but rest assured, there’ll be no time to get bored! Instead, there’s the opportunity to hike to a nearby viewpoint and enjoy mammoth vistas of Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Lhotse...we could go on. On the way back, you’ll walk around the Khumjung valley and have the chance to visit the Hillary School and Khunde Hospital, before heading back for the night.

    Day 6

    Namche to Tengboche

    Hiking

    6hrs · 9.3km · 1270m up · 840m down

    Things get challenging as the trail forks northeast along a tributary valley and you approach the holy ground of Tengboche (3860m). There you’ll be met by a monastery, yak pasture and the world’s highest sacred institution combined! Team this with more epic views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Everest and you'll find it's worth every puff.

    Day 7

    Tengboche to Dingboche

    Hiking

    6hrs · 10.4km · 930m up · 440m down

    Trek past the Gompa holding the famous Yeti scalp and pass summer yak pastures on the way to Dingboche, where you'll stay for the night. Most of the trekking in this area is comparatively gentle, although taking it easy is recommended due to the high altitude.

    Day 8

    Explore and acclimatise at Dingboche

    Today you 'll have your second acclimatisation day at Dingboche (4410m), which is vital considering the high altitudes you’re now reaching. Fear not, you can get still involved in some optional hikes to the nearby Nagajun Hill or Chukung Village which both boast panoramic views of Ama Dablam and Makalu.

    Day 9

    Dingboche to Lobuche

    Hiking

    5hrs · 7.8km · 690m up · 120m down

    Climb at a leisurely pace and cross ice covered torrents until you reach Lobuche (4910m). Here, you’ll be met with stone houses that sit amongst the frozen wilderness. Only one more night until your goal.

    Day 10

    Everest Base Camp

    Hiking

    6hrs · 11.6km · 630m up · 380m down

    Ascend to Everest Base Camp (5380m). Congratulations, you're in the company of legends. Take some time to reflect and enjoy it. Many a new profile picture has been taken here! Once you’ve taken in the views and given yourself a massive high-five, you'll continue back to Gorak Shep (5364m) for the night before beginning the descent tomorrow.

    Day 11

    Pangboche via Kala Patthar

    Hiking

    8hrs · 21.4km · 820m up · 2050m down

    The best way to see Everest (and its surrounding peaks) is as the sun comes up so be prepared for an early start. You'll ascend to Kala Patthar (5550m), the highest point of the trip, with awesome views of Everest before heading down to Pangboche for the night.

    Day 12

    Pangboche to Namche

    Hiking

    6hrs · 13.5km · 1140m up · 1660m down

    Descend down to Phungi Thanga and then continue on to Namche, where you'll stay for a night of celebrations.

    Day 13

    Lukla

    Hiking

    6hrs · 18km · 1720m up · 2290m down

    Set off for the final descent into Lukla (2860m). On the way, you'll trek through a forest of rhododendrons and pine until you reach a Sherpa village. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to say your final goodbyes to the local team before moving on to Lukla.

    Day 14

    Back to Kathmandu

    Fly back to Ramechhap after your incredible mountain journey. You'll drive back to Kathmandu in time for some well-earned beers and a celebration dinner.

    Day 15

    Last day in Kathmandu

    Enjoy a well-earned lie in and breakfast at your hotel, then spend your last day exploring the city before heading back to the airport, and reality.

    We've crunched the numbers to work out the total carbon footprint of this trip, and plant enough trees to suck 2x as much back out the atmosphere.

    What's the number?
    It works out on average at 499kg of CO2 emissions per person, including all local transport, accommodation, food, activities, guides, staff and office operations.

    The only thing it doesn’t include right now is flights and travel to the destination. We do make an overall estimate across all our customers separately, but as we don’t book flights, have customers from all corners of the world, and no way of reliably knowing their travel plans, we simply can’t include an individual number in the figure on display here. We’ve got a goal for 2022 to fix that, so that when you book, there is a way to measure and mitigate the carbon emitted by your flight too.

    But what does the number mean?
    Yep, hard to picture eh? To give you an idea:

    • Driving 1000miles/1609km would be approx. 281kg of CO2 in an average car (or 140.5kg per person if there was 2 of you in it).
    • A return economy class flight London - New York would be approx. 1,619kg (1.66 tonnes) per person.
    • 10 trees in a temperate forest are estimated to remove approx. 250kg of CO2 from the air in a period of 5-10 years.

    What are we doing about it?
    Our trips are relatively low-carbon by design, and we're working with all our hosts to develop long term carbon reduction plans. For every person booked with us since 2016 we’re planting enough trees to suck at least 2x more carbon out the atmosphere than is emitted by their trips. All native trees, as part of amazing projects that are re-foresting degraded land, tackling the biodiversity crisis and supporting local communities at the same time. We go further than that too, also funding re-wilding projects worldwide to help protect important keystone species from extinction. See the reforestation and re-wilding schemes we support. See our carbon action plan.

    Want to know more?
    Amazingly, no international travel company has ever publicly published their carbon measurements before, as far as we know. We believe that must change, quickly. So we’re openly sharing the method we used in the hope that other companies will be able to more easily follow suit and build on what we've done so far. You'll find it all here.

    Much of the trek is within the capabilities of people with an average fitness who are keen trekkers. Still, it is important to note that trekking at altitudes above 3000m/10,000ft is more demanding on the body than walking at low elevations. Some training beforehand will help and we advise doing at least one weekend of back to back days walking. The guide will set the pace and as with all altitude treks, the theme is ‘slowly slowly’ to ensure you adjust to the altitude. So although this trek is rated ‘Challenging’ there are plenty of hours factored into each day to ensure it is completed by all.

    Sure can! Over 50% of our travellers travel solo, it’s a great way to meet like-minded people.

    Breakfast is usually either hot porridge, muesli or Tibetan bread served with an omelette or boiled eggs. The menus in the teahouses are very similar at every stop and there will usually be a choice of traditional Nepalese dhal bhat (a mixed plate of lentils, rice, vegetables and pickles - delicious and healthy), Nepalese dumplings (momo’s), mixed noodles, pasta and even pizza.

    Although meat is available at some teahouses, we suggest you ask your guide for their advice about consumption as it tends to depend on how far it has travelled as to whether it is a safe option.

    Extra dietary needs can be accommodated, just let the host know on booking.

    We do not include meals on the trek as from experience we know that altitude and physical exercise can mean appetites vary hugely. The cost of food rises as you ascend as it is all carried in by porters and yaks and as you get higher up, very little food can be grown. How much you spend per day will vary according to your choice of meal but generally, people spend between $25-$35 per person per day on meals and hot drinks. Below is an approx. breakdown of some items:

    • Dal Baht: $4 to $7C
    • Chow Mein: $2 to $4
    • Eggs: $2 to $4
    • Toast: $1.50 to $3
    • Tea/Hot Chocolate: $1.00 to $3.00
    • Chocolate Bars: $2 to $4

    Teahouses will provide cold water free of charge however it needs to be treated to enable you to drink it. Please read the FAQ re our advice here.

    Other extra costs to be considered:

    • Shower: $2-$4
    • Wifi: $2-5
    • Electricity: $2-5

    It is customary in Nepal to tip guides and porters. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. You can give any tips to your lead guide at the end of your trip. This will then be shared amongst the whole team. For full transparency, the lead guide will distribute the tips to the guides and porters in your presence. A good rule of thumb is around $140pp as a tip, although the amount you give is entirely your choice. 

    The preferred currency is the Nepalese Rupee (NPR). Whilst ATMs are available in the main cities, please do not rely on them as they are often out of order and most have a maximum withdrawal limit equivalent to about GBP300.

    It's best to bring the bulk of your money with you in cash and exchange it at a bank or at one of the many money changers in Nepal - your guide will help you with this. Most major currencies are accepted, including GBP (Sterling), Euros and US Dollars, however Scottish or Irish currency cannot be changed. Keep your exchange receipts in case you want to change any unused Rupees back into hard currency when you leave Nepal (it is illegal to export Nepalese Rupees as it is a closed currency).

    You will need to carry a fairly large amount of cash while trekking for the meals. We advise that you keep this in a waterproof bag and in your day bag along with your passport.

    Although most teahouses have the option to buy bottled water, we advise against it to reduce the use of plastic in the mountains (this ends up being burnt or in landfill out of sight). You will instead be provided with cold water that needs treating. There is a wide range of products available these days which are more effective than traditional purification tablets - some trekkers like to use UV handheld devices such as a Steripen but other options are available (just check the performance in freezing conditions).

    There are 3 different seasons for trekking in Nepal:

    Winter (Dec-Feb): Despite being seen as ‘off-season’ this is often the best time to trek in Nepal. The nights can be very cold (down to minus 20°c) but the trails are quieter and the mountain views are often at their best due to the clear sunny skies.

    Pre-Monsoon / Spring (March-May): Temperatures rise significantly in Spring and flowers are in full bloom in the lower lands. Although it can still drop below freezing at night, the daytime temperatures tend to sit between 10-15°c.

    Post-Monsoon / Autumn (Sept-Nov): This is the most popular time to trek in Nepal with sunny and mild days generally. It can get cold and windy at higher altitudes however skies are usually clear.

    Of course, mountain weather is notoriously hard to predict and snow can be expected on any trip so come prepared.

    We recommend checking out the country specific information here and also talking to a travel nurse.

    When you trek in the mountains, there's always the risk of getting altitude sickness, regardless of how old, young, fit or unfit you are. We would expect most trekkers to feel some mild symptoms of altitude sickness (headache, sleeplessness, heavy breathing) when over 3500m. Our guides are trained to identify the symptoms of altitude sickness so if any more serious symptoms are noted, there is a strict procedure regarding extra care or a rapid descent if needed. All of our trips have been designed with altitude best practice in mind so acclimatisation days have been built in and our experienced guides follow advice to ‘walk high and sleep low’.

    We work with some of the best leaders in the industry. Every single one of them is government licensed and very experienced. In order to ensure the guides high standard of performance, the host provides them with top-notch in-house training that covers, Leave No Trace (LNT) principles, advanced wilderness first aid, hyperbaric chambers, oxygen system, mountain rescue and incident management.

    The flight from Lukla to Kathmandu at the end of the trip is usually reliable however if the weather is poor cancellations can happen and there is the chance that you will have to fly the next day. So to play it safe we advise you consider booking an extra night’s accommodation in Kathmandu at the end of the trip.

    We’ve sourced some great optional activities for you to do in and around Kathmandu should you wish to explore that little bit further. Please discuss these directly with your host who will be able to book them for you.

    Cook Like a Local: This short cooking workshop (approx. 3 hours) teaches you how to cook popular Nepali dishes like MoMo and Dal Bhat. You’ll meet your teacher and accompany them shopping, then head to the kitchen and learn to cook alongside them. Price: Pay what you think the workshop is worth!

    Shop Local: A 2/3 hour guided exploration of the markets of Kathmandu. Prepare to learn about the vendors that line the crowded narrow alleyways and to witness everything you could ever imagine being sold, haggled and bargained for. A great experience to learn about the melting pot of cultures that exist in Kathmandu. Price: $9-$50pp depending on the group size.

    Master the of Arts: Patan Durbar Square is popular for its Fine Arts and this trip will explore the local factories where handicrafts are made. You’ll visit 2-3 factories and learn about traditional processes and see art being produced. Price: $14-$59pp depending on the group size.

    Introduction to Shamanism: Shamanism, which is believed to heal many diseases, is not practised widely these days however this trip enables you to meet a practising Guru and learn all about this age-old tradition. You’ll visit a small house to have an introduction, followed by lunch and a drumming session where you’ll learn the importance of rhythm pattern to healing. Price: $90-$150 depending on group size.

    There is a weight restriction on the flight to and from Lukla of 10kg checked baggage plus 5kg hand luggage. It is not a problem for you to check in 1-2kg more than this as long as you are happy to pay an excess luggage charge (approx. £1 per kg). Some items may be left in the hotel in Kathmandu if necessary.

    This trip includes one porter for every two trekkers. They will carry up to 20-25kg of kit so your overnight bags and spare clothes will be transported for you (maximum 12kg per person). You will only need to carry a ‘day pack’ with essentials in (extra layer, snacks, water, suncream, camera etc.
