Trip Overview

Everest Base Camp Budget trip is for those who want to do a more economical trek but the route is same as Everest Base Camp.

All the hotels and restaurants for accommodation and meals are the same as the Everest Base Camp trek. However, the Everest Base Camp budget trek does not include meals.

The trip begins after the scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2840m) and the distance of Everest Base Camp from Lukla is 65km. Lukla is a town of small markets and lodges. After a short tea break, the journey turns to Phakding (2610m), a bit lower altitude at the bank of Dudh Koshi River.

Our journey from Phakding to Namche is quite long and also tough because we’ll be gaining altitude as we walk. En route to Everest Base Camp, we can see several Mani walls with engraved Tibetan prayers with Tibetan scripts, and prayer flags.

Journey of Everest Base Camp

Trip of Everest Base Camp lasts for 12 days and is spent exploring the Sherpa settlement, bazaar, museum, monastery. We reach the Everest Base Camp (5365m) as the main highlight of the trek. Namche Bazaar is the main gateway of Everest and also the trading town of the region. On the day, hiking from Namche we visit Syanboche which is the highest airport in the world. Tengboche is very popular for Buddhist monasteries and views of the Himalayan giants. It is the only man-made structure that can be seen from the summit of Mt. Everest.

We then visit Pangboche and Dingboche valleys, which give the grand feeling of Sherpa and Sherpa culture. Our hike to Nangkartshang Peak (5,090m) or Chhukung not only to acclimatize with the altitude but also for magnificent views we get from here. We will also be climbing up Kalapathar from Gorakhshep in the morning to catch the sunrise views over Mt. Everest and explore the Everest Base Camp. Don’t forget to take some memorable photos of the high Himalayas from this magical place.

Itinerary Info

Standard Itinerary and Private Trip

It is the notice about Standard Itinerary and Private Trip. The provided itinerary is standard, and if you want to customize it, you can do it. OR you can go through our Plan Your Holidays page.

Travel Insurance and Covers

We strongly recommend you have travel insurance that covers the adventure activities such as trekking/hiking above 15,000 feet. And must include flights delayed/canceled by bad weather, accidents, evacuations, etc.

Keep in Mind

Sometimes, unusual weather changes, natural disasters, flight delays, and cancellations, government rules, local political situations, health conditions of trekkers may change your itinerary. At that point, our leading guide will decide and try to minimize the impacts and run the trip smoothly, but we are not liable for any additional costs if needed.

Always options for Upgrade

Please you can upgrade your accommodation and transportation service to regular. We can provide you with 5Star hotel accommodation and the best available private car/ jeep services. And also domestic flights including the Helicopter Charter.

Lukla Flights:

All we know is that the Lukla flight is sensitive in the case of weather. Instantly it may be delayed and canceled as well. A tiny Himalayan airport has difficulty facing heavy traffic which is why sometimes the flight may be delayed. So, we suggest, if you are trekking in Everest, please make sure at least you have two days additional in the program.

In the case of a weather cancellation, the best alternative to get Lukla is to charter a helicopter because the copter can fly in lower visibility of 1,500 meters. However, Twin Otter and Dornier aircraft need minimum visibility of 5,000 meters.

What about the Helicopter cost? Is it getting instant or need to be in the queue?

A helicopter charges US $ 2500 per flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. And the US $ 500 per person on a sharing basis. Except for the emergency, during the high season and extreme weather of Lukla, you may not get a helicopter instantly or need to be in the queue. Also, if you have requested the Helicopter for less than 24hrs, you may need to wait because of the limited number of helicopters, and they’re using various activities in the mountains.

Lukla flight from Manthli Airport, Ramechhap

Due to the air traffic in Kathmandu during the peak months (March, April, May, September, October, and November), CAAN has promulgated the notice that the flight has been shifted to Manthali from Kathmandu to Lukla. If there are changes will update you ASAP.

Guest Review

A big tick off my Bucket List

Linda Nguyen Australia

I have never thought of myself as a hiker or a trekker, but somehow, the idea of trekking through the Himalayas and venturing through Nepal and the worlds highest mountain seems exhilarating and almost out of reach. I did the trek to Mount Everest Base Camp in October 2014, and it was and still is one of the best experience in my life. We had Gyanu as our guide for the entire trip and not only has he been patient with a beginner trekker like me, he explained and shared with us his cultural heritage, his faith and his respect for the mountains.

Gyanu and his team always look out for our safety and comfort first. He was always humbled and considerate and would never push us beyond our limitations. I am thankful to the team, the porters and the guide that has made the trip so enjoyable and allowed myself to experience a magnificent place that they are proud to call home. I am looking forward to visiting Nepal again and I would gladly choose to organize my trip with Gyanu, this time, onto the Annapurna circuit.

Awesome Trek with Gyanu!

Ben Combe Australia

In November 2014 I undertook the Everest Base Camp trek from Lukla with Gyanu as my guide. Guiding seven other Australians and me, Gyanu made the trek an absolute pleasure, ensuring every step of the journey was a safe and happy experience. By far and away this was the most rewarding multi-day trek I have ever done, though I would recommend any of the shorter activities as well. Walking in the shadows of the spectacular mountain of Ama Dablam for a number of days, as well as a dawn summit of Kalapathar would be the highlights. (See Photos)

Gyanu has many years experience trekking in the Sagarmatha/Everest region and is extremely knowledgeable about the surrounding mountains, their history, and Nepalese/Sherpa culture. The esteem in which Gyanu is held by his fellow Nepalese was evident on every day of the trek, where he was warmly greeted and embraced by both younger porters and more experienced guides coming from the opposite direction. I would attribute much of this warmth and respect to Gyanu s commitment to educating his porters and junior guides over many years, something that obviously seems to be appreciated.

Gyanu was very patient with our group of eight trekkers and made our health, safety and comfort his primary concern. In addition, Gyanu is very good at maintaining good morale in the group, his pre-dinner Nepalese singing skills never ceased to amaze our fellow trekkers in the various tea houses as we progressed into the mountains! I will never forget my Everest Base Camp experience and would thoroughly recommend Gyanu as a guide on any trek or activity offered. If I am ever lucky enough to return to Nepal I would make sure Gyanu was my guide!

Beautiful Memories!

Brain Rea South Africa

Raj was my guide on the Annapurna Circuit. He was not only professional but a great companion and, when the going got rough, proved very efficient in implementing the necessary safety procedures. I would not hesitate to recommend Raj as an able and proficient Himalayan guide.

Great Moment of Life!

Donna Coburn Lannone United States

I trekked to Everest Base Camp and Rajendra Neupane was my guide. I did a lot of research prior to my trip to make sure I found the right guide and I was so lucky to get Raj. My trip started off with my friend deciding she could not get on the flight to Lukla. I was immediately on my own with this young man I just met. I was a bit nervous about doing this trek alone and Raj made sure was I always taken care of. It was a bit daunting to be halfway around the world by myself with a strange person you are now trusting to get you through the trek. Raj did an amazing job. I was a 50-year-old woman and had never done anything quite like this. It had been a dream to see Everest. Every step of the way Raj was encouraging and made sure I was okay. He took his time with me and help me reach my dream of seeing Everest. I was thinking this poor young man stuck with this old lady yet it was always by my side. He checked on me at night made sure I was eating and drinking properly. We got to Gorak Shep and I developed health issues and we had to immediately go back down he was very compassionate and never seem upset with me. I would highly recommend Raj to anyone wanting to trek to Everest Base Camp.

Local business that is “100% heart”

Santa Barbara United States

Gyanu was our guide and was recommended by a traveler we had met. He and two friends have recently gone into business on their own and are putting their heart and souls into making a great company. Caring for their guests is their top priority! They do all of the well-known hikes in Nepal and also do day trips. I believe they would create a wonderful itinerary whatever your request.
