Everest base camp trek is an experience of a lifetime, a journey for those whose aspirations soar higher than even the clouds. Miles from conveniences and daily luxuries, you’ll immerse your spirit in nature and grow your personal strength beyond what you thought possible. The Everest base camp trek begins in Kathmandu, where you will acclimate and explore the city at your convenience while awaiting your ascent. Your Everest base camp trek (5,364m) to the base of the world’s tallest mountain will bring you over suspension bridges crossing chasms of thin air, through remarkable Buddhist monasteries, and into the heart of the friendly, mountainous Sherpa culture. As you travel beside thrill seekers and photographers from all over the world, you’ll view Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Makalu – three of Earth’s ten most towering peaks! You will spend the night in cozy, traditional teahouses. Our skilled, knowledgeable guides and porters are there to ensure the safest, most delightful, most enthralling experience possible. In the Everest base camp trek, you will support local economies, uncover hidden strengths within yourself, make companions, and memories that will last a lifetime.
For people who want to make their dreams come true, the base camp trek to Everest is an experience of a lifetime. In the midst of nature, far from modern comforts, you’ll discover your inner strength and confidence in ways you never imagined possible. While waiting for your ascent, you can acclimatize and explore Kathmandu before beginning your trek to Everest Base Camp.
You’ll cross suspension bridges over chasms of thin air, visit Buddhist monasteries, and enter the heart of the friendly, mountainous Sherpa culture on your journey to Everest base camp. You’ll see Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Makalu, three of Earth’s ten tallest peaks, as you travel with thrill seekers and photographers from around the world. Teahouses are where you’ll spend your nights, and they’ll be cozy and traditional.
In order to provide you with the safest, most enjoyable, and most fascinating experience possible, we provide you with professional, knowledgeable guides and porters. As you trek to the base camp of Mount Everest, you’ll help the local economy, discover strengths within yourself, meet new people, and create lifelong memories. The Everest Base Camp Trek will retrace the steps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, who reached the summit in 1953 on their epic ascent.
Trekking to Everest’s base camp is an incredible experience that will push you to your physical and mental limits while revealing your inner strength. This 14-day journey to the foot of the world’s tallest mountain is a chance for you to fulfill your ambitions, test your limits, and learn more about the majestic mountains and your own personal potential. You’ll be walking among giants of nature, soaking up the freedom that comes with abandoning Wi-Fi and Netflix, playing card games in cozy teahouses, learning about Sherpa life, and watching the sunrise over Mount Everest.
Depending on the season, you’ll see everything from still alpine lakes and glacial plains to frothing rivers and valleys draped in pink blossoms, in addition to the enormous, rugged mountains that surround you. When you embark on an adventure like this, you’ll form lifelong bonds with your fellow trekkers and enjoy the genuine camaraderie you’ll experience in your small group.
On the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the most famous airport in Nepal, you’ll get your first glimpses of the mighty Himalayan range. The airport is well-known as a starting point for treks in the Everest region. Hike with an English-speaking local guide and a team of guides and porters who will introduce you to the rich Sherpa culture along the way. We work with local mountaineering and porter welfare programs, so you can rest easy knowing that while our porters are taking care of you, there’s someone looking out for them too.
Hiking in the Himalayas is no easy task. There are 11 days of hiking that last up to six hours a day, and you’ll reach an altitude of more than 5500 meters. When it comes to the weather, it varies according to the season. Anyone who has done it will tell you that the rewards are well worth the effort, but we cannot emphasize enough that you must be in excellent health to take part.
Our Everest base camp trek includes overnight stays in the best mountain lodges along the way. These teahouses offer great food choices and are neatly maintained. After a long and exhausting trek, you’ll be glad to relax in your cozy teahouse. Each season brings with it a unique set of scenery and conditions. Due to the popularity of the Everest Base Camp trek, it is likely that you will come across many other trekkers and groups both on the trail and at teahouses throughout your journey.
The journey begins with the classic trek to Everest base camp. Following the thrilling flight to Lukla, it is a short and easy hike up to Phakding, the first rest stop. The hike will then continue to Namche, a Sherpa village. You will have a wonderful experience en route at Namche, where we will stay for two nights for acclimatization. The vibe here is incredible, with expedition teams and hikers from all over the world. We continue on to Tengboche, home of the famous Tengboche Monastery.
Tengboche Monastery is a well-known Buddhist monastery located above Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital. Tengboche provides breathtaking views of Ama Dablam, which is widely regarded as the world’s most beautiful mountain. The next stop will be Dingboche, where we will stay for two nights before continuing on to Lobuche and Gorakshep. After a long trek, arriving at Everest base camp is a dream come true, but it is well worth it.
To add to the incredible feeling, we will climb Kalapatthar for spectacular views of the sunrise over the entire mountain range. Kalapatthar is one of the major highlights of the Everest base camp trek. From here, one can get the best possible view of Mount Everest without having to engage in strenuous mountaineering activities. Before retracing our steps back to Lukla, we climb to the top of Kalapatthar for spectacular views of the world’s highest mountain.

Our training goal is to get you physically and mentally prepared to face the climb with more confidence. The climbing goal will be to perform consistently throughout the adventure. Fitness for mountaineering requires a high overall level of physical conditioning. Both cardiovascular and motor fitness are needed to climb at varying levels of intensity and to navigate challenging terrain, often while carrying a loaded pack and at high altitudes.
Training goals are critically important and allow you to perform better at higher altitudes and enjoy the entire adventure. We suggest that you examine the physical requirements of the climb you are approaching and work on your fitness in different levels. Click here to Learn more about Trip Grades and choose what’s best for you!
Establish a timeline for your training program and focus on specific conditioning for better results. Along with your workouts try and add hikes and climbs in the outdoors whenever possible to get more comfortable with different terrains. Sound fitness gained through a well-guided program is the only best way to ensure a safe and successful adventure.
Mountaineering Fitness and Training
It may also be helpful to break down your training timeline into a number of key phases. These are:
Phase 1 : Base physical fitness
The first phase of getting prepared for your climb is to focus on your base fitness. You should incorporate a fitness routine that focuses on both cardiovascular fitness and motor fitness training. For those who are not used to intense workouts this phase will help you to kickstart your training. Remember that consistency is the first most important factor in achieving any goal. Combine your basic fitness regimes along with running and stair climbing. You are now ready for outdoor adventures.
Phase 2 : Training specific for the climb
Once you have established your base physical fitness, you will need to train specifically for the climb. Depending on the difficulty and intensity of the climb, add advanced workout sessions combined with uphill training. Try and do the same fitness routines with some added loads. Strength training combined with cardiovascular and motor fitness will help with the overall conditioning. This will take your workouts to the next level and help gear up for the mountaineering challenge ahead.
Phase 3 : Outdoor Training
Nothing can replace training in the real outdoors. In the final phase of your training, you should be attempting climbs which are similar to the ones you are approaching. It is great to test your endurance outdoors. This gives you a great edge in preparing for conditions similar to the ones you will encounter during your expedition. It isn’t always possible to find similar terrains close to where you live, but it is best to find a hike as close to the climb as possible. This is the best way to test your climbing gears as well.
Training goals and timeline
Working out for at least 5 days in a week is the best way to get your body physically prepared for the climb ahead. Regular and consistent training always gives the best result and keeps you highly motivated. Make sure that you workout regularly and also give enough time for rest and recovery. Keep it balanced and have a properly planned fitness routine and never overdo exercises to the point of injury. While 2 to 3 months is a good amount of time to train, starting your training earlier allows more time to adjust and prepare.

I had a great experience in the everest base camp trekking with Protrek. The trails are gorgeous, and Protrek’s staff (management, guides and porter) was professional and cheerful, offering valuable advice from planning to returning home.
Having participated in trekkings with other companies in Argentina (Aconcágua) and Equador (Cotopaxi), I totally recommend Protrek!
Protrek Adventure was the company for my trekking trip in Nepal: Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo. From the beginning responses to emails were fast and very satisfatory, done by Mr. Dawa Sherpa. Since arrival to Nepal till the time of leaving, the company (Sandeep and Viji) is taking a great care of the customer!
The entire trip was very well planned. The lodges on the trek were very nice with all needed services. Our stuff: guide Sandeep Rai and Karma Sherpa were extremely professional. It was really a pleasure to spent that time together with them. They were just there for us, ready to help when needed, sharing the knowledge about mountains/Himalayas/summits and what is the most important they always made sure that we follow the rules of safe trek and that our health/well being is super precious. Huge respect for that!
Thank you so much for this oportunity to #makedreamscometrue and to be a part of this wonderful journey in Himalayas!
It goes to everyone: Mr. Dawa Sherpa, Viji, Sandeep, Karma Sherpa and porters (wonderful local people,worked very hard and were super nice-huge thanks and respect!) for all wonderful and memorable moments which will stay with me forever!
I highly recommend reaching out to this company if you are planning a trip to Nepal. I am sure I will when I plan my next visit in Nepal.
I had the great opportunity to trek to Everest Base Camp, which I can highly recommend. Undoubtedly, the company, led by Miss Vigy, is willing to answer questions from the beginning. Once you confirm and the day to start the adventure has arrived, they have permanent accompaniment from the moment you arrive at the airport, throughout the trek and until the end of my stay in Nepal.
Mr. Sandeep was the trekking guide who is a highly qualified person, his great experience undoubtedly gave me all the confidence to feel safe living the adventure to the fullest.

The remote accompaniment in preparation for the trek was really very efficient, friendly and unconditional. In times of Covid19, demanding protocols must be complied with, which at Protrek knew how to guide us to arrive without problems.
At Protrek all the members are experts in what they do and they offered us a memorable experience, making the entire route very easy, enthusing and encouraging at all times, giving the security that one can reach EBC.
