Everest Base Camp trek is an unforgettable expedition in the lap of the tallest peak of the world. First conquered by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, Everest Base Camp has traditionally been the ultimate goal for the high altitude trekkers. Our carefully devised itinerary with a number of rests at Namche Bazaar and Dingboche gives you an opportunity to explore Thamo and Chhukung Ri. This offers you an opportunity for acclimatization. A gradual ascent through typical Sherpa villages gives you ample time to enjoy the scenery, wildlife and visit a number of monasteries.
Our goal is Everest Base Camp on the Khumbu Glacier and the opportunity to climb Kala Patthar (5545m), a viewpoint recognized as the best vantage point to see breathtaking view of the highest peak in the planet.

Arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport, Kathmandu. Traditional welcome by our airport representative. Your guide briefs about your further programme. Typical Nepali dinner served in the evening with culture program.
You will be taken for sightseeing of Kathmandu Valley to explore the vibrant city after breakfast at your hotel. Drive to famous Buddhist Stupa Swayambunath, also known as Monkey temple, on the hill of Kathmandu Valley where you can see stunning view of mountains and Kathmandu valley. This temple attracts Buddhists and tourists from around the world. Swayambhunath Stupa is the most ancient and enigmatic of all the holy shrines in Kathmandu valley. Its lofty white dome and glittering golden spire are visible from far and wide. Next is Pashupatinath, the temple of Lord Shiva. This is probably the most famous temple for Hindu in Indian Sub-continent. There is crematorium beside the temple where dead bodies are burnt to ashes. After exploring Pashupatinath you will visit fascinating sights of Patan Durbar Square, one of the most glorious examples of traditional Nepalese architecture, full of centuries old temples and palaces.
You will take stunning flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. You will meet with the trekking crew upon arrival. Following a short tea break you will trek northwards up to the valley of Dudhkoshi. Descend from the small plateau into the forested valley. The trek is very easy and short today. However, the difference in altitude, in comparison with Kathmandu, can make you feel a bit difficult. After lunch you trek north towards Phakding. The trail crosses several streams and you finally reach to Phakding (2650m). You will spend your first night in this settlement from where you will have tantalizing views.
Hike to Namche Bazaar through farmland and settlements. You will follow the Dudh Kosi northwards. This day walk takes you through magnificent forests of rhododendron, giant fir and magnolia trees. You will cross the west fork of the river, the Bhote Kosi, and start the steep climb to Namche Bazaar. Namche is the largest Sherpa village which is called as gateway to Mount Everest. Namche is a prosperous Sherpa village and an important trading center as well. Locals from various villages gather during the weekly bazaar and sell fresh foodstuffs.
You will take rest in Namcha and explore the village Thamo or Synboche. Make yourself fit, physically and mentally, for the further journey. This day is for acclimatisation. We suggest you to stay active even in the rest day so that it will help you for the further trekking.
The route from Namche to Tengboche is unbelievably beautiful – the Dudh Kosi is far below and Thamserku, Kantega, Ama Dablam, Lhotse and Everest rise in the front. This lovely walk is full of woods, rhododendron forests, mani walls, chorten (stupas), and suspension bridges across the river.
After breakfast visit the beautiful Tenboche Monastery. Hear the story of Yeti from Lama and if possible see the praying. After this descend to a lodge in Debuche. After lunch trek to Dingboche. The trek is very beautiful. It is one of the most beautiful valley walks in the earth. Overnight in Dingbuche.
This is an acclimatization day. An acclimatization day here can be used to hike up the Imja Khola to Chhukung or Nagarzhang Peak, a small summer settlement from where stunning views of Island Peak, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and the fluted ice walls flanking the Amphu Lapcha pass can be seen. Make fit yourself for the further journey. Physiologically prepare yourself for adaptation to changes in climate or environment. We recommend you to stay active even in a rest day as it is better than being idle while on a trekking journey.
The ascent towards Everest Base Camp continues through alpine meadows and summer yak pastures towards the end of the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. It is a steep, tough climb towards the village of Gorak Shep. Trek continues towards Lobuche where the view is straight towards Nuptse and the sunset is truly magnificent.
The higher altitude makes this day's trekking quite challenging. Trekking from Lobuche to Gorak Shep is very challenging. You will climb Khumbu Glacier and cross the Changri Glacier to Gorak Shep. The views are really stunning. Overnight in Gorak Sheep.
Your condition will be checked today before you move on. If the condition is found good then hike to Kala Patthar. Enjoy an early morning hike to an excellent viewpoint of the Everest region, with panoramic vistas of the front of Mt. Everest and Pomo-Ri. Kala Patthar is a notable landmark located on the south ridge of Pumori. The ascent of Kala Patthar begins at Gorakshep, the original base camp for Mt.Everest. Back to hotel for breakfast and trek down to Pheriche.
Today’s trail is not too much up and down, following a gradual ascent through a forest to the Phortse. This is the beautiful remote village in Khumbu region with spectacular mountain scenery. Meet with the local people and chat with them if you like. The trek is about 5-6 hours today.
After breakfast trek around one and half hour up to the Khumjung, at the foot of the sacred Khumbi Yul Lha. The village of Khumjung is situated near the peak of Khumbila, from which this region is named. The local monastery is well known for housing what is purported to be the scalp of the infamous Yeti. You will leave Khumjung passing through the school where Sir Edmund Hillary raised funds. His legacy and the great work he started here still continue. You will head towards Namche where you’ll spend a few hours before we leave for Monjo. As you reach the peak of the mountain you are destined with spectacular views of Namche from above. There is a very distinct tree line that you notice as you trek through the mountains. As you descend landscape continues to become greener. Beautiful waterfalls and streams are common as you walk down.
Hike down a steep trail to the Dudh Kosi river. You’ll have a long and leisurely trek back to Lukla. Celebrate your trek at a local tea house and gaze back at the jagged peaks of the mountain you’ve enjoyed. Bid adieu tonight to your trekking crew.
Fly from Lukla to Kathmandu. Enjoy panoramic mountain views and spend the rest of the day sightseeing, exploring, shopping or just relaxing in Kathmandu’s numerous cafés and roof-top restaurants by your own.
It’s a leisure time in Kathmandu, where the rest of the day is free for shopping, sightseeing or relaxing. This is an extra day in case of bad weather. Free time to explore Kathmandu before setting for the airport.
Your final day in Kathmandu is a free day. You do as you like. Many people take the time for shopping others enjoy exploring the cultural sites of the city. Our local guide can advise you on the best shops in the area. Farewells! Our airport representative will travel with you to the airport.

Trekking Team Group are a fantastic local trekking company if you're planning a holiday or trek in Nepal and, simply put, Birman Tamang is the best trekking guide this side of Everest.
We booked a 20 day trek to Everest Base Camp during April 2019 through Inspiring Vacations. The overall package was initially compiled and coordinated by Inspiring Vacations (including flights, itinerary, etc), though once we hit the ground in Kathmandu it was Shreehari and his team at Trekking Team Group that managed the logistics of our trek, accommodation, meals, transport, etc. Shreehari and his team were always friendly and professional, and always willing to go above and beyond to ensure we felt comfortable, informed and happy. It was comforting to know we were in the hands of a local trekking company who not only had many years of experience, but who also provided support to local communities and schools through various initiatives. We only had a small group (3 people), which was great.
Birman Tamang was our guide for the trek, and I can't imagine having a better guide. Birman picked us up from Kathmandu airport (welcoming us with genuine enthusiasm) and stayed with us through to our return to the airport 20 days later. He has a great wealth of knowledge about not only trekking in the Himalayas but also Nepal, it's history, religion, culture, food and people. Birman's positivity and enthusiasm were seemingly endless and highly infectious. He's very patient and quite observant, so we always felt at ease along the trek and never rushed. He's also really flexibile and seems to have contacts in most of the lodges and tea houses along the trek, so it often felt like we got preferential treatment over other trekkers. More than once, I spied Birman picking up rubbish along the trails and putting it in the nearest bin.
Our two porters Doulashin and Sunkumar were fantastic, always waiting for us with a smile at the end of the day's trek. There's no way we could have made it up and back without them.
Our package included some local sightseeing in Kathmandu before our trek to Everest. In addition, we had a few days once we'd returned from the mountain to relax and explore the local Balthali village and Bhaktapur areas. While we were somewhat exhausted from our journey up and down the mountain, this was a nice way to unwind after our long trek, and a welcome change to the dust and frantic activity of central Kathmandu.
I highly recommend TTG and Birman as your local trekking team and guide if you're planning a visit to Nepal. They're awesome.

Amazing Trekking to (Mount Everest Base and the Kalapatthar) everything went perfectly thanks to the people of the Trekking Team Group and especially to Birman and Hira, who were the ones who made our trip a dream come true for all. Surely we return to do it on the side of Gokio and its lakes and we have no doubt that we will do it with this company, so formal in everything from the first day that we contacted them by email from Spain when we started planning our trip ..

I've been trekking twice before to Nepal when I was much younger and didn't use a guide or porter back then. This time I did, and was lucky to have Birman as guide and Foure as porter. From beginning to end this was an excellent experience. Bir took good care of my friend and I, always finding a room at the lodges for us despite this being peak fall season. Bir made sure we ate well, had enough blankets, and were safe on the trail. Despite lots of competition for flights, we had no trouble arriving and leaving Lukla on the days intended. I had some trouble with the lack of oxygen on one day going over Cho La pass, and Bir made sure we stopped to rest--and breathe--as needed.
I liked the company's policy about responsible tourism and was happy not ordering bottled water. Bir used his steripen to purify every bottle of tap water and my friend and I never had any tummy trouble.
Shree was very helpful before and after the trek, and proved an excellent manager.
I would highly recommend Trekking Team Group to anyone going to Nepal.

Trekking Team Group provides outstanding service for very reasonable prices. I have used them for treks into the Khumbu region and have never had a complaint. Shreehari and his group really know how to take care of clients. They can plan a trip for you or, as I did, make all the arrangements for the itinerary you lay out. The guides are special - knowledgeable, caring, and a pleasure to be around - and they arrange for very nice, capable porters. The most important aspect of using TTG is their response when things don't go as planned. Everything gets rescheduled as necessary and, if needed, assistance provided and care arranged. Every one in TTG is a nice person who really cares about the client. You can trust them to do everything possible to make your journey a memorable one and to take care of you if things don't go as planned. I highly recommend them.

We have been travelling with Trekking Team, and was a really great experience. We were 2 people to trek to Everest Base Camp, and communication before the trekking through email was very easy with quick answers to desing in flexible way what we wanted to do during our trip.
Once in Nepal Shreehari and Khrisna take care of all the things. They know very well where to eat, sleep during the trekking to have the best experience.
Ver y close and friendly people.
Totally recomended if you want to do this tren of others in Nepal.
This is ADVENTURE travel, and many of the trip destinations in this site are remote areas, within under developed countries, where events are less predictable than is usually the case in. The unexpected is the norm in these areas and, despite painstaking planning and organization, our adventure trips can never be taken for granted like regular trips. Many of the places that we visit do not have the same quality of emergency health and safety services that you are used to in the developed world. Internal flights can be canceled, road transport is generally uncomfortable and unreliable, and hotels often do not approach the standards of the West.
IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS, YOU SHOULD NOT TRAVEL WITH US. This unpredictability also means that the itineraries that we put forward for each of our trips should be seen as statements of intent, rather than as contractual obligations. A variety of factors, including weather, transport difficulties and political instability, might dictate that we change any itinerary. The trip leader will make any changes that are necessary, after consultation with the group. Only rarely will such changes be significant, and we will always do everything within our powers to minimize the effects of the enforced changes. We cannot be held responsible for the results of changes or delays, irrespective of how they are caused.
