13 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

Duration: 13 Days   |   Based on 5 Reviews

13 days Everest base camp trek is one of the most popular and famous trekking holidays in the Everest region (Khumbu). The challenging and strenuous trek goes through the Everest National Park offers magnificent views of high mountains, unique Sherpa culture, colorful markets, and monumental landscapes. While doing 13 days Everest base camp trek, trekkers can visit some of the most popular monasteries situated at the highest place in the world. During the trek, all the time views are stunning and the loyalty and friendliness Sherpa people are the highlights of the trip.

We start the trek with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla which is a 35-minute mountain flight over the astounding green hills and white snow-capped mountains. This is a tiny airstrip that offers a view of beautiful landscapes and stunning Himalayan giants from where your adventure trek really begins. Upon arrival at the Lukla airport, our Sherpa crew will already be present to welcome you with a hearty and hospitable gesture. The guide that will accompany you all the way from Kathmandu will be well-trained, friendly, reliable and experienced to inform and help you in case of high altitude sickness.

The trek begins with the normal flat, downhill and uphill hike to the hustling and bustling city, Namche Bazaar. The trekkers will be given two nights to acclimatize to the elevation and atmosphere of the mountains. Namche is an amphitheater-style of town which is the heartland of Sherpa kingdom. We can find most of the modern facilities such as Internet cafes, ATM, bakeries, night bar and gear shops for buying or renting the gears which are used for 13 days Everest base camp trek.

After adapting to an elevation in Namche, we start our trek towards the beautiful Everest base camp. The journey begins with the first glimpse of the exotic view of Himalayan giants which includes Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Thamserku, and Mt. Pumori. After witnessing the stunning mountain ranges, we move forward to our next destinations, Tengboche. Tengboche gives trekkers an opportunity to explore the world-famous Tengboche monastery which holds an outstanding history. The following day, we trek to Pheriche, where we accommodate for two nights to have a good rest and gather strength for our upcoming journey. In Pheriche, we will hike up to 5000 m and spend the night at an elevation of 4200m. Experts say that hiking at higher elevation and sleeping at a lower elevation altitude helps moderate altitude sickness. Therefore, we follow the same method and complete the Everest base camp trekking with ease.

The trek continues to Luboche and Gorakshep. These places are over 5000 m which apparently is an elevation prone to trigger altitude sickness. The trekkers might feel a slight headache, shortness of breath and loss of appetite, which are normal symptoms to face in high altitude areas.

Furthermore, we discover more stunning views of the awe-inspiring mountains such as Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Nuptse on our journey back to Lukla from the Everest base camp and Kalapatthar.

13 Days Everest Base Camp Trek Note

If the above 13 Everest Base Camp trek itinerary could not meet your needs, we can design a tailor-made itinerary to suit your needs. It is also possible to combine with some other activities such as white water rafting, Jungle safari in Nepal and Sightseeing tour of Kathmandu valley.

Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla

Lukla Airport (also known as Tenzing-Hillary Airport), located on an enormous valley is bounded with high mountains. Due to this reason, the arrival and the taking off from Lukla are technical and difficult most of the time. The weather here is unpredictable and changes every next hour which causes flight delay or cancellation.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the only primary methods of transportation to Lukla from Kathmandu of the airway at Lukla. The service provided here is fairly dependable. However, if the flights get canceled or delayed due to mountain weather conditions, we will help you to charter a helicopter and make sure that you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connections. The additional charges roughly required are USD2,400 to USD2,800 per helicopter (USD 4,50 to USD 2,800 for each individual) would be pertinent to you for the helicopter charter. The helicopter will be taking 4 to 5 trekkers at a time and the expense can be shared among the riders. The cost must be paid by rider, which can later be submitted for reimbursement through the travel insurance company. We can assist you with important documents for a claim. Payment for the helicopter must be done by the rider before or during the ride.

US dollars cash or Visas (Visa Cards, Master Cards, and American Express) are accepted for helicopter transport. Any card payment requires a 4 percent bank charge, which goes straightforwardly to the bank.

The helicopter will be able to fly if the visibility is 1500 meters or greater, whereas the Twin Otter and Dornier planes can fly if the visibility is 5000 meters or greater, according to Nepalese Civil Aviation rules. If a situation, in which the weather is extreme and the visibility is lesser than 1,500 meters arises, then the helicopters will also not be able to fly either. In such cases, we will reschedule your trip for the following day depending on the availability and condition of the weather. If this situation continues for a long time, then you will be provided with alternative trek options.
