Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal is one of the most coveted treks. An adventurous journey takes you to the base of the world’s highest mountain, Mt Everest where you can marvel at the breathtaking landscapes and majestic grandeur of towering mountains. Offering an array of landscapes, the Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek in Nepal features on the bucket list of every trekking enthusiast. It is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for many. Cosy tea houses, well-maintained trails, splendour of the big mountains, and a classic trekking experience brand Everest Base Camp trek as a must-do trek. 

Grandeur of the world’s highest mountains

During this trek, you’ll encounter Mount Everest, the world’s highest, along with three of the world’s 14 highest mountains. Although the EBC Trek is every adventure lover’s dream, only a select few embark on this challenging yet picturesque trail of Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Ri, leading you above the clouds at 18,000 ft.

Everest Base Camp Trek is the ultimate adventure destination for passionate outdoor enthusiasts. The legendary tales of climbs in Sagarmatha National Park come to life as you witness the majestic Greater Himalayan range in all its glory. 

EBC via Gokyo Ri for a thrilling adventure

The conventional route to Everest Base Camp is often crowded. Though this is a shorter route, preferred by many, you miss the thrill of experiencing this classic trek via Gokyo Ri. With 100-200 trekkers an average day, the trail deprives you of solitude. To escape the hustle and experience the adrenaline rush of climbing to the high-altitude passes, OWLS organizes the Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Ri. This alternative route is for adventure seekers as it combines the conventional Everest highway with off-trail sections. You navigate on a less-travelled path to witness the beauty of Gokyo Ri. 

The 16-day-long trek offers the most breathtaking views of the world’s highest mountain. Unknown to many, the Everest base camp Trek via Gokyo Ri thrills you with four of the 14 highest peaks in the world. The spectacular sight of Everest, Makalu, Lhotse and Cho Oyu compensates for the arduous journey.

Suitable for seasoned trekkers 

As exciting as it may sound, the Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Ri is taxing as you ascend to 17,000 ft thrice in 16 days. First, at the summit of Gokyo Ri while crossing Cho La and the Everest base camp. Add one more adventurous ascend to the trail as you will surpass the altitude of EBC when you climb to Kala Patthar at 18,900 ft. to witness the grandeur of Everest from a vantage point.  

Being at the base camp of the world’s highest mountain is a thrilling and adventurous experience. It is a once-in-a-lifetime escapade. The Everest basecamp trek via Gokyo Ri adds to this excitement with equally riveting experiences. 

Be prepared for an adrenaline high as EBC  Trek guides you through a high altitude pass of Cho La, enchanting turquoise shades of Gokyo lakes and takes you on top of the world at Kala Patthar(18000 ft.)

Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary

Day 1 : Kathmandu (4593 ft.) to Lukla (9,300 ft.)

On Day 1, Fly to Lukla from Kathmandu and meet the OWLS team at Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla. Lukla, a small town in Khumbu is the gateway to the world’s highest mountain. This lively town of Lukla is bustling with climbers from across the world. This busy town is also the starting point of your EBC Trek Via Three Passes Route. Kathmandu to Lukla is around 138 km, and the duration of the flight is around 30 minutes. 


Things to remember while booking a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla 

  • There are daily flights in the morning from Kathmandu to Lukla. Flights into Lukla are highly weather-dependent. A cloud covering a mountain ridge can shut down the entire airport! This is why you must book the first flight out of Kathmandu and factor in buffer days in the itinerary.
  • In case a flight from Kathmandu to Luka isn’t working out, your other option to Lukla will be to take a flight from Manthali Airport, which is close to Ramechhap. Taking a regular shared cab or bus from Kathmandu to Ramechhap, cost NPR 500 which is more comfortable than a bus, and leaves every hour. The duration of the drive is between 5-7 hours. These modes of transport are almost always available in trekking season.

Day 2 : Lukla (9,300 ft.) to Phakding (8,600 ft.)

Your first step towards the base camp of the world’s highest mountain starts today. As you start climbing through a gradual descent, the trail passes through beautiful Nepalese villages. The day is comfortable and you will reach Phakding in the afternoon, and stay in a tea house.

Day 3 : Phakding (8,600 ft.) to Namche Bazaar (11,290 ft.)

Day 5 : Namche Bazaar (11,290 ft.) to Dole (13,074 ft.)

You will gain almost 2000 ft. on Day 5 of the trek. It’s quite an ascent before the actual trail starts. When you step on this trail, you will witness the first sight of Ama Dablam.. The walk is gradual on an undulated ground, and then there is a steep ascent.

We halt in a village called Phortse for lunch and start for our destination Dole. From Phortse you will enter the forest, and reach an open grassland. Dole is a small place with very few people and tea houses.

Day 6 : Dole (13,000 ft.) to Machhermo (14,600 ft.)

As you leave Dole, you will pass through a river bed, and after walking for an hour, you will see the first sight of Cho-Oyu right in front of you. Cho-Oyu remains with you throughout the trail.

Day 12 : Lobuche (16,200 ft.) to Gorakshep (16,900 ft.) and Excursion to EBC (17,400 ft.)

Gorakshep is the last village on the EBC trail. It is a small settlement with few tea houses. The Khumbu glacier is on the right side of the trail. It appears as a big river of ice. We have lunch at Gorakshep

Namche is a big village with small markets. The trekkers collect souvenirs from here. The market is bustling with climbers heading toward Everest and also the ones descending from the trek.

Day 15 : Namche Bazaar (11,290 ft.) to Lukla (9,300 ft.)

Buffer day is kept to account for any bad weather, rains, etc. which might hinder the trek. If buffer day is used, our Outdoor Leader will collect INR 4000 from each trekker.
