Trip Hightlights

  • Everest Base Camp (5,364m), the base camp of the world’s highest mountain
  • World’s highest glacier, the Khumbu Glacier
  • Unrivalled view of sunrise over Mt. Everest  from the viewing summit of Kala Pattar (5,545m)
  • Spectacular vista of  Pumori,, Makalu, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Thamserku and other peaks in the Khumbu region
  • Amazingly scenic and adventurous side trips/hikes

A successful hike to the base camp of Mt. Everest is an achievement no less than climbing the mountain itself. Embarking on a journey that takes you miles away from your hometown; leaving the ease and the bed of roses behind; delving completely into nature, discovering delightful sights of the Himalayan vista, varied sacred landscape, and the lifestyle and settlements of ebullient Sherpas, is an achievement for most, if not for all. Moreover, it’s an opportunity to discover the amount of hidden strength, which, some of you never thought even existed in you.

Desire Adventures’ 14-day Everest Base Camp Trek is a marvelous journey to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain, ‘Mt. Everest’. Starting and ending Lukla (after a 30-35 minute scenic flight from and to Kathmandu), you will share your trail with adventure enthusiasts, photographers, local Sherpas, and of course the Yak trains and hike all the way north up to the base camp, making lifelong friends and memories. Along the way, your English-speaking guide will help you understand the mountains, forests, rivers, pious monasteries, and chortens and gain insight into the settlement, lifestyle, and culture of the Sherpa people.  Your rest at night and meal in the local lodge/teahouse (all included in the standard package), will directly support the local economy, which we believe, is another good reason that will make this trip precious to most of you. Nevertheless, to enhance your Everest Base Camp trek experience, the company offers the option to fully customize the trip to meet your choices, requirements, and budget. 

Although non-technical, treading along the countless series of uphill and downhill, all the way up to the Mt. Everest Base Camp, is comparatively easy for physically fit slow, and steady climbers. The success rate is also highly determined by the right choice of season and autumn (mid-September to November) and spring (March to May) seasons are considered the best. Age is just a number, if you have the courage and determination to defy age-imposed inhibitions; everything comes within your reach. Have a group? Do not forget to claim our special discount for your group!  

(“Climb High, Sleep Low” is the rule one must follow to avoid altitude sickness. Therefore, apart from 2 days of acclimatization, at Namche and Dingboche, to aid the acclimatization process, we hike a little higher than our overnight stop and get down for overnight rest.)

Welcome to Nepal and Desire Adventures. Upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you will be met by a company representative.  After a quick meet and greet at the airport, you will be driven to your hotel by private transfer. Spend some time at leisure. You will be introduced to your tour guide and fellow travelers in the meeting that will be conducted at our office, in the afternoon. The introduction session will be followed by a briefing that sketches out the wonderful trip that awaits you. Trekking gears and clothing that you will need during the trek will also be finalized in the same meeting.  

Accommodation: Tourist-standard hotel, Kathmandu.

 

Early in the morning today, your private transfer will meet you at your hotel to transfer you to the airport. Once at the airport, you will quickly board the plane and depart for Lukla. It takes 30-35 minutes to reach Lukla (gateway to Mt. Everest) from Kathmandu. It’s a scenic flight and on clear days the view beneath looks very delightful. The plane will land at one of the most dangerous airports in the world, the Tenzing Hillary Airport, in Lukla. In Lukla, you will be introduced to your private porters and other team members. While the luggage is prepared for the porters, have your first breakfast in the Khumbu region, enjoying the spectacular snow-capped Himalayan Mountain that backdrops the town of Lukla. After breakfast, accessing the narrow streets, you will head through the north end of Lukla past the police check point (register your TIMS card and valuables) to the Pasang Lhamo Memorial Gate. Enjoy colorful prayer flags, shops, people and yaks walking through the streets and leave Lukla for Phakding. The trail will drop to the village of Cheplung and continue through the community forest to the metal suspension bridge above the Thado Koshi Khola. Enjoy the first views of the Dudh Koshi River and Kusum Kangru. You will now climb around the ridge to Ghat, pass through a school and enter a complex of Mani walls, chortens, and boulders engraved with black and white Tibetan mantra and prayer wheels. The trail will then climb over an old landslide to the settlement of Chhuthawa and wind through the forest beside the Dudh Koshi. You will further continue to the village of Phakding, where you will check into your lodge, before enjoying a well-earned dinner and a night of rest. Your afternoon is spent at leisure.

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Phakding

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After enjoying your breakfast, you will continue on a trail that first cuts across to the west bank of the Dudh Koshi River and meandering through the forest of pine about 100m above the river, follows the Dudh Koshi Valley north to the tiny village of Toktok. However, you will cross the Ghatte Khola by the small hydroelectric project and climb up over the ridge, before reaching this village. From Toktok, you will descend through the forest of pine to Benkar, past a few small waterfalls. Here you will get to enjoy a very good view of the potato fields. Heading north, you will now cross the bridge to get to the east bank of the Dudh Koshi River and walk to Chumoa, enjoying a few small settlements scattered among the wonderful forest of rhododendron, magnolia and fir. A short climb from Chumoa will take you to Monjo. Just above Monjo lies the entrance check point for the Sagarmatha National Park, where your guide will take care of the required formalities. Meanwhile you can enjoy 3D map of the Khumbu Himalaya and displays on responsible trekking at the information center in Monjo. The trail drops down to the suspension bridge past a stupa-shaped gateway (Kani) and an enormous granite bluff carved with Tibetan mantras. You will cross the bridge and hike north to Jorsale. Above Jorsale, you will cross the suspension bridge across the Dudh Koshi River, get to the east bank, follow the lower river bank trail over gravel and boulders and climb into the forest. Soon you will see the confluence of Bhote Koshi and Dudh Koshi rivers. Crossing the bridge across the Dudh Koshi River, you will now hike through the forest of pine on a zigzag trail up till Mislung, where the path levels out and the forest ends. Following the stone steps, you will continue till Namche, where you will check into your lodge before dinner. Your evening is spent at leisure. We suggest exploring the town of Namche and enjoying cafes.       

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Namche Bazaar.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

One day acclimatization in Namche is highly recommended to avoid the symptoms of AMS, further up the trail. For this, you can choose from a number of short hikes through the hills around Namche. Among all, Namche Bazaar to Thame (6-7 hours) and a full day circuit through Syangboche, Khunde and Khumjung and back to Namche (4-5 hours) are the best recommended acclimatization treks in Namche.

 

The Namche-Thame hike will take you west along the valley of the Bhote Koshi to the isolated village under the mountain wall of Kongde Ri. Choosing this trail allows you to enjoy enormous mani boulders carved with Buddhist mantras, forest of pine and rhododendron, ancient mud plastered stupa at Phurte, boulder with a painted image of Guru Rinpoche at Samshing, large chorten, Kani, stone-walled fields; murals of Green Tara, Guru Rinpoche and Thangtong Gyalpo; Thame Gompa and a hydro electric  power house.

However, a full day circuit through Syangboche, Khunde and Khumjung to Namche allows you to enjoy grass airstrip at Syangboche, juniper and rhododendron, carved boulders, Boudhanath-style chortens; delightful view of Khumbila, Ama Dablam and Thamserku peak; the first hospital in the Khumbu; Khunde Tsamkhang- a Buddhist temple founded by a lama who fled from Tingri in Tibet; 360 degree views of Khunde, Namche Bazaar, Ama Dablam and Pachermo peak from the Hillary Memorial Viewpoint; memorial chortens to Edmund Hillary, his wife and daughter; beautiful view and the settlement of Khumjung – the largest village in Khumbu; potato fields of Khumjung; Hillary School established by Sir Edmund Hillary; the longest mani wall in the Khumbu region and a gompa that treasures the skull of a Yeti.

Enjoy your breakfast and follow your guide to one of these side trips. This acclimatization trek will help you adjust to the altitude without any unsafe increase in elevation. In the evening you will get back to Namche for dinner and accommodation.

 

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Namche Bazaar.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast in Namche, you will leave for Tengboche. Following the path by the huge Mani stone in Chhorkung, you will now continue north around a long ridge. Very soon, walking past a memorial chorten to Tenzing Norgay, backdropped with a beautiful panorama of Thamserku to Amadablam, Lhotse and Everest, you will reach a trail junction at Sanasa past Kyangjuma. Leaving the trails that climb to Khumjung and Gokyo and following the descending trail, you will now descend to Leushyasa, enjoying the majestic view of Ama Dablam. Below Leushyasa, a steep descent on stone steps will take you down to a bridge at Phunki Thenga. You will cross the bridge, walk past some water driven prayer wheels and continuously climb up through the forest of rhododendron, past a number of rest points (chautaras) and springs to finally reach Tengboche. Kani and a pair of chorten mark the arrival of Tengboche after about two hours of demanding uphill climb. Some lucky trekkers also get to spot a few musk deer and Himalayan Thar in the forest on the way to Tengboche. In Tengboche you will check into the lodge and after a short rest enjoy a strolling tour of Tengboche Monastery (the largest and the most active monastery in the Khumbu region) complex taking in the highlights with your private guide and enjoying the panorama of peaks including, Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku. We also suggest exploring the Eco Center just across the meadow from the monastery, where the displays on the history of the monastery, Sherpa culture and the environment issues faced by the Khumbu region is a sight in itself.  The rest of the time, before dinner, is spent at leisure.  

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Tengboche.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

You can join the monks for morning prayers at the Tengboche Monastery. After enjoying your breakfast in Tengboche, you will now leave Tengboche for Dingboche. From Tengboche, you will gradually descend to the bridge at Chaturje on stone steps, enjoying the lush forest. A big chorten greets you at the other end of the bridge. You will now continue further on a slowly ascending Pheriche trail as far as Orsho, which drops to a small bridge across the Khumbu River at Chuto. Crossing the bridge, you will climb for about 30 minutes along the west bank of the Imja River to finally reach the village of Dingboche. Enjoy snowcapped summits of Island Peak, Peak 38 and Lhotse to the east of Dingboche. After reaching the village you will check into the lodge. The rest of the time is spent at leisure. You can utilize this time by exploring the settlement of Dingboche under your own steam, before dinner. 

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Dingboche.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

To aid the acclimatization process, one more day acclimatization in Dingboche is highly recommended. You can choose from two acclimatization trek options: i) hike to Nangkar Tshang Gompa and the viewpoint above it, ii) a full-day hike to Chhukung.

If you are looking for a short hike, then the first option is suggested. It’s about an hour climb past chortens and prayer flags to the ridge north of Dingboche, where you can enjoy Nangkar Tshang Hermitage. Take in the highlights with your guide and continue up the hill side to the viewpoint to enjoy the beautiful view of Cholatse and Taboche to the north, lakes at the foot of Ama Dablam and Chhukung and Makalu to the east.       

However, if you are looking for a longer acclimatization trek, a full-day hike to Chhukung in the upper Imja Valley is suggested.  Starting Dingboche, the major part of the climb is over desolate moraine to a series of stepping stones over Niyag Khola until Bibre. Chhukung (4,730m), surrounded by mountains and glaciers, is nestled among ridges of moraine about 30 minutes west of Bibre. If you have time and energy to walk, you can climb Chhukung RI for mind-blowing panorama of Ama Dablam, Baruntse and Makalu.

After enjoying your breakfast your team leader will guide you to one of these destinations in Dingboche. After the acclimatization trek, you will get back to Dingboche for dinner and accommodation.

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Dingboche.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After enjoying your breakfast, you will leave Dingboche for Lobuche. You will either follow the trail that crosses to Pheriche through the stupas atop the ridge or take another trail and slowly climb along the ridge to the Pheriche and Dingboche trail junction, past Dusa. As you tread the trail, the grandest view of the craggy twin peaks of Taboche and Cholatse, Ama Dablam and Kantega provide a very good company. From the junction you will descend to a glacial stream, before rising up the other side to Dughla (Thukla). You will now head directly up the rough terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. After walking for about an hour, the trail slightly curves left at the top of the ridge, where you come across a number of memorials to the lost climber and Sherpas, including memorials to Babu Chhiri Sherpa and Scott Fisher. After crossing the ridge, the stupendous Pumori comes into view. A little ahead from this point, you will come across a trail junction from where an arduous ascent to the north over loose moraine will take you to Lobuche. You will check in to the lodge at Lobuche. The rest of the day is spent at leisure. You can best utilize the time hiking up the ridge east of the village to enjoy the first view of the Khumbu Glacier along with Lhotse and Nuptse or take a leisurely walk north, along the moraine to the Italian Pyramid and get back to the lodge in Lobuche for dinner and accommodation.  

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Lobuche.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Wake up to the thought of standing on the base camp of Mt. Everest and enjoy your breakfast in Lobuche. After breakfast, you will head north, following the narrow trail between the glacial moraine and the mountain wall; traverse the junction to the Italian Pyramid. After a few short vertical climbs you will walk across the terminal moraine of the Changri Shar Glacier, for about 45-50 minutes to finally reach Gorakshep, situated at the base of Kala Pattar. Enjoy the view of Changtse, Khumbutse, Lingtren and Pumori, from Gorak Shep. From Gorakshep, you will head back towards the Khumbu Glacier through loose sand and gently ascend to the top of the ridge and follow the mountain’s spine directly north towards the end of the Khumbu glacier. Soon, colorful tents (during climbing season) and brightly colored prayer flags wedged between rocks at the bottom of the Khumbu Icefall come into view, marking the base camp of Mt. Everest. You will spend some time taking picture and enjoying the surrounding view and retrace your steps to Gorak Shep for dinner and accommodation.

 Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Gorak Shep.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner   

If your target is to enjoy the view of the sunrise over Mt. Everest and other Himalayan giants, you will have to start 2 hours before sunrise, as it takes 2 hours to hike all the way up to the summit of Kala Pattar. Starting early also provides the best chance to capture the view of the Everest, before the clouds roll in, obscuring the view. Therefore, before breakfast you will hike to Kala Pattar. You will reach the summit in about 1.5-2 hours, depending upon your speed. As you approach the peak, the peak of Pumori becomes more prominent.  Fluttering colorful prayer flags greet you at the summit of Kala Patthar. Enjoy the astonishing 360 degree panorama from Pumori and Lobuche West to Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest; the view of the frozen river of Khumbu glacier, the Everest Base Camp, tiny Gorak Shep and Lho La (the pass between Nepal and Tibet). After enjoying the view you will get back to Gorak Shep after a detour south to the lower ridge to enjoy the view of the glacial lakes, which is also the base camp for Pumori. Lunch at Gorak Shep and you will retrace your steps along the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier to Lobuche. From Lobuche, you will continue down the moraine to Dughla, drop down to the bridge, cross the glacial stream and following the lower path that drops along the wide valley continue to Pheriche.  After reaching Pheriche, you will check into the lodge and spend the remaining time at leisure, before dinner.

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Pheriche.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Breakfast in Pheriche and you will leave for Namche. A gentle hike from Pheriche will take you to Pheriche Pass from where you will hike down to a trail junction at Chuto. Now, following the west bank of the Imja River, you will drop down to Pangboche, past Orsho and Somare. You will further retrace your steps to Tengboche through the forest past Deboche. From Tengboche, you will first climb down to Phunki Tenga, climb the ridge and continue towards Namche Bazaar. You will check into the lodge and spend the remaining time at leisure, before dinner.  

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Namche Bazaar.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner       

After breakfast in Namche, you will continue on a trail that steeply drops down to the confluence of Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi River, at Larja Dobhan. Crossing the Larja Bridge, you will now continue on a level path till Jorsale and climb up to Monjo. After the national park check out formalities, retracing the steps you will hike down to Phakding and hike up to Lukla. Check into the lodge in Lukla and spend the remaining time celebrating the achievement made over past few days. Enjoy dinner and accommodation in Lukla.  

Accommodation: Lodge/Guesthouse/Teahouse, Lukla.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Enjoy your last breakfast in the Khumbu region, while enjoying the beautiful surrounding view. Soon, you will board a plane and fly back to Kathmandu. From the airport in Kathmandu, you will be transferred to your hotel. You can either spend the remaining time strolling around the popular markets in Kathmandu, or enjoying free spa and a very relaxing one hour body massage. In the evening, we will meet for the welcome dinner, where while having dinner, we will also discuss the trip and the feedback. After dinner, you will be guided to your hotel.

Accommodation: Tourist-standard hotel, Kathmandu.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Our Guides:

With growing tourism in Nepal, the growth of travel and expedition companies have mounted to its peak. The companies seek the best leaders and guides to compete in the market while giving the best service to the clients. Although there are a numbers of companies promising you the best trip of your life, many neglect giving the knowledge on safety measurements and sustainable tourism to their team. From luxury travels to pocket friendly trips, our team guides deliver you the best of Nepal keeping your schedule, preference and welfare in mind.

Extensive insights on history and culture of the country:

Nepal has abundance of cultural and natural beauty. The charming architecture and rich history of the temples and Stupas are listed under UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Our guides are well learned and experienced to give you insights on the country's hidden history and natural beauty. From world renowned sites to less traveled local areas, we make sure to provide you information on the benevolent locals, culture and lands that stretch out from the mighty Himalayas to the Terai Plains.

Round the clock service:

Our guides provide you exceptional service 24*7 throughout the trek. Weather it requires giving information, helping with communication or any other skills, our team makes sure you get the facilities regardless of timing.

With extensive field study, our office staff constantly communicates with our trekking guides, tour guides and climbing Sherpa’s to update the information in the trekking region.

Trekking has been commercialized in the last few years since Nepal was recognized as the most efficient country to trek. With growing commercialization comes competitive market. Nevertheless, our climbing Sherpas and team representatives along with the guides are required to have minimum of 5 years of experience with a certified license.

Importance to Sustainable Tourism:

We value the importance of sustainable economy and development. Thus, we hire local porters, guides and climbers to train them and give them a platform to work for themselves and their family. All our team members belong to local native groups and have been trained for trekking in the Himalayas and other regions of Nepal.

No exceptions with quality and equipments:

Our teams of guides are well trained with proper English speaking and communication skills via education and experience. We are also equipped with first-aid kits and trekking apparatus like oximeters, maps, first-aid kits and mobile phone for emergency.  Perhaps what separates us from others is the relationship our company has with the climbing Sherpa’s and trekking guides.
