Best time to do Everest Base Camp trek

September - November, March-May

Autumn and Spring seasons are considered to be the best time for Everest Base Camp trek. In these seasons weather becomes calm and favorable for the trekkings. During the day, you can complete the trek easily with just shorts and t-shirts on. You may need a down jacket while trekking at high altitudes and/or fleece during the evenings and early mornings. The temperature is average so you don’t have to endure the extreme cold during the trek. The humidity is also low in these seasons with less probability of rainfall. 

Even though winter days are cold and windy in the Everest region, you can pursue the trek if you feel like you can bear the low temperature. Because the view of the landscapes is best in this season. Summer trekking is also possible if you prepare for the rainy days keeping yourself and your belongings waterproof.
 

The difficulty of Everest Base Camp trek

Everest Base Camp trek falls in strenuous grade. Strenuous treks demand a high level of strength and physical fitness. You will have to stay at an altitude more than 5000 m for a few days. The trek can be completed in almost 15 days. It becomes more difficult as the altitude increases.

However, you can pull off the trek if you prepare yourself well before the trip. You are expected to do some cardio exercises, hiking, kayaking, etc. one month prior to the trip. You can also get involved in weight training to develop muscle strength.  

 

Weather and temperature along the trail

Weather conditions in the Everest region depend upon the seasons. In summer the weather is unpredictable. The rainfall might occur almost at any time of the day. The temperature drops low during rainfall and might be hot the other time.

Spring and Autumn are when the weather conditions are stable and calm. Nights might get a bit chilly but the temperature is bearable. The days are warm most of the time.

During winter, the days are cold and windy and nights are even colder. The temperature level drops to below freezing point. There might even occur episodes of snowfall and snow blizzard in the high altitude region. 
 

Accommodation during the trek

During the Everest Base Camp trek, you will have two types of accommodation. During your days in Kathmandu, you will stay at a 3-star hotel and during the trek, you will stay at tea houses. These tea houses are run by local people and provide you with minimalistic but proper services and clean beds. The room will be private rooms with a twin triple sharing basis.

 

Food and water during the trek

Your hotel in Kathmandu provides you breakfast while for other meals, you are recommended to try other restaurants in the city providing amazing multi-cuisine food.

Tea houses along the trail provide food rich in carbohydrates and protein. As the trekking takes you to higher places, there will be fewer food options to choose from. For three meals, there is food like noodles, pasta, rice, vegetables, Dal Bhat, eggs, etc. At Lukla and Namche, you can find additional food like bakery items, pizzas, and beverages. 

Three meals, breakfast, dinner, and lunch are included in the package while you have to carry extra snacks you need like chocolates and energy bars. You can also buy some snacks on tea houses which may cost you more. Tea house where you have your meal lets you fill your water bottles while you can refill your bottles with tap water and use the water purification pill.

 

Trek durations 

Among the 15 days of trekking, you will spend two days in Kathmandu, and two days acclimatizing in Namche and Dingboche. During the trekking days, you will walk for an average of 5-6 hours a day. Some days require you to walk as little as 3 hours while some days you need to walk for about 8 hours. The terrain of Everest Base Camp trekking trail varies from beginning till the end. Some routes are flat and even and you can cover up to 4 kilometers in an hour. But, some uphill climbing in rocky trail slows you a lot and you can only cover less distance in the same time. The trail gets tough as you approach the Base Camp.

 

Trek starting time and ending time 

Usually, trekking starts at 8 am after your breakfast at 7 am and you will continue walking till lunchtime at about 1 pm. After resting for some time, you will again continue your trek until you reach your destination of the day. While trekking, make sure that you are walking slowly but steadily. Walking fast drains your energy and makes is hard to complete expected distance while also keeping you at risk of injuries.

 

Commonly Asked Questions by Trekkers
 

Can I take shower during the Everest Base Camp trek?

Yes, you can take a shower during the Everest Base Camp Trek. The tea houses you will be staying in will provide you with the facility. You can take a hot shower and you have to pay an extra price for that. The price gets expensive as the altitude increases.

 

How much weight can one porter carry?

On average, a porter can carry up to 30 kg. But once you have to share the porter with another trekker, he will carry up to 15 kg luggage per person. If you have to carry more than 15 kg, you can either carry the extra weight by yourself or pay an extra charge. 
 

Can I use the internet during the Everest Base Camp trek?

Yes, you can use the internet most of the time during Everest Base Camp trek. The easiest way to access the internet is by using mobile data provided by Nepal Telecom and Ncell. It will be fast enough to make video calls, etc. However, the network might not be available in some remote places.

Everest Base Camp Trek Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 8 reviews

Unlike any other trekking expedition, our recent trip to EBC in May 2018 was one amazing experience. Not only our 15-days trip is filled with thrill and adventures but the entire trip arranged by Mr. Ram of Sublime Trail’s and our mountain guide BK (Bikram Khadka) was commendable. Every each meal we can choose our preference of food included in the package and the guesthouse stay is quite comfortable except the one in Lobuche, that was the worst with no water supply, but other than that the rest was quite good. each and every one of us were carefully observed by our mountain guide BK along our trek for fear of unsuspecting altitude sickness. Likewise, the 3 Sherpa was very helpful and even help me to carry my backpack when I'm totally exhausted. The day before last was a day trip tour in Kathmandu, indeed it was also an eye-opening experience too, I must say it’s truly an amazing lifetime experience. Overall it was a wonderful trip full of adventures. Once again, thank you Sublime for arranging this amazing trip for us!

BK (Bikram), Ram and the team were amazing and the best people we've ever met in our trekking to Everest Base Camp. This is our 1st trekking trip in Nepal so we didn't really expected much other than walking for long hours. The whole journey was amazing in its own way, BK (our mountain guide) and the porters were really amusing and taking good care of us. The trek is so beautiful and the team is very experienced. This is the best Nepal holiday we've had so far and can't wait to come back for another trekking trip with Ram and BK. Sublime provides 5 stars service!

Every time I think about trekking there always comes a name and that is of Sublime Trails. Before going to EBC 15 days trek I had already gone to Langtang trek and Annapurna Base Camp trek with them. When I was planning for the trek Ram helped me to organize my plans for having a great trek. I already had memorable treks with them but compared to this trek they were just a drop of water in an ocean. They were already providing great service when I first went with them but they were not settling at that level. They were improving themselves every time to provide fantastic trekking experience at low cost. Ram and I went for the trekking 3rd time and he was the boss for me since he was always 10 steps faster than I thought. He had seemingly unrivaled contacts in every trekking routes to get things done during the trek. He was excellent at giving every bit of information and was always sensitive to how I coped with the trekking. So he was a super guide for me and so was his company. This agency has been giving its best service to every client they have worked with and I would absolutely recommend Sublime Trails to anyone visiting Nepal: to have Sublime trek at the reasonable price.

I and my Wife went to Everest Base Camp 15 day trek through Sublime Trails and we had a great time when we were in Nepal. For the beginners like us, this trek was hard enough to give up on the half but our guide Ram took care of us and encouraged us to go further to complete the trek. We finally completed the trek and found that it was completely worth of all the hard work done to reach there. Without our guide Ram and our porter, we wouldn’t have been able to complete the trek and enjoy the natural beauty of the mountain vistas. During the whole trip, I was the slowest in our group but they never left me behind and they always supported me every time. The mountains were splendid and our guide Ram was so much knowledge that he told and made us remember every detail of all those mountains which astonished us. The trek was physically challenging for me but Ram did a great job of taking care of me and he even made sure that we acclimatize properly so that we would not suffer from altitude sickness. He was the renowned person since due to his presence we were welcomed with much greater hospitality than others. He arranged great accommodations and lovely food for us. Remembering these memories makes me want to go to Nepal again and have an enjoyable trek with Ram. So definitely I would recommend Ram and Sublime Trails if you want to trek in Nepal.

We had a 15 days trek to Everest Base Camp with Sublime Trails. The trek was well organized and literally, it was perfect for us. They served us really well from the time of pick up at Kathmandu till our departure. Our guide Hari and our porters were really caring and looked after us in every step. They helped us to properly incline higher altitude without getting Altitude sickness so we all were able to reach to the base camp and get the majestic view of the Everest. I would definitely recommend Hari and Sublime crew to anyone who wants to trek in Nepal.

Our group of 12 people including me went for 15 days Everest Base Camp trek with Sublime Trails. It was a great trekking experience which made us think about returning back to trek again in Nepal. I was trekking for the first time while my other friends had already trekked in Nepal with Sublime crews. For me, it was a new and unique experience and it was full of excitements in every step of our journey. It was well organized and we made it to the base camp only with help of our trek organizers. So, I would like to express my gratitude towards Sublime Trails and their crews for providing me with amazing memories of my first trek. Furthermore, I would like to highly recommend Sublime Trails for everyone to have a great trekking experience in Nepal.

We were a group of 3 guys doing a treck in the Himalayas. The experience with Sublime Trails and specifically Ram was amazing. He was answering all our questions already the long time before coming and we knew everything is in good hands which is quite important when you travel to Nepal for the first time (permits, equipment, etc.). Ram was able to give us a very experienced guide and it paid off already on the first day when the flights were not flying but we were able to take a helicopter to Lukla instead (for a small fee). Also, he arranged us a sherpa going with us to Island Peak. The Sherpa was very experienced, 7 times on Everest and it was a very good experience as well. In the end, Ram invited us for a dinner and asked us what he can do better which was a nice touch at the end. Overall superb experience! 

Everything was well organized and taken care of with Sublime Trails so we could just relax & enjoy our trek. From the moment we arrived at the Kathmandu airport our guide Rishi was waiting with a sign with our names on it. He shook our hands and greeted us with "Welcome to Nepal" Rishi and a driver took us to our lovely hotel in Kathmandu where we met with Ram, the owner of Sublime Trails, and paid for our Trek. Ram made arrangements for a city tour of Kathmandu for the following day which was great to learn about Nepal's culture. That night Ram met with us again to take care of any last minute preparations for our trek - hiring down jackets and sleeping bags, etc. Our trek to Everest Base Camp was incredible because of our awesome guide Rishi - he has an amazing sense of humour and loved playing cards and showing us his magic tricks. Our porter Kumar was full of energy and always smiling. Talking with other Trekkers on the trail we could easily tell we made the best decision to book with Sublime Trails. We loved that we had our own private tour, we weren't packed into a big group like other Trekkers and we planned our trek date completely around our travel plans, no set schedule. Ram and his team take care of everything beginning to end. When we returned to Kathmandu, Ram took us out for a farewell dinner to celebrate our accomplishment and provide feedback on our trekking experience. It's obvious Ram goes above and beyond to genuinely care for his customers.  We highly recommend Sublime Trails for trekking in Nepal!!! Thank you so much to Ram for all the arrangements and to Rishi & Kumar for a fantastic trek!
