Highlights

Sleeping at Everest base camp is the dream of every adventure lover. How could not it be when you trek to Everest base camp for 2 weeks and return home without spending time at the lap of Mount Everest? So, we at Sublime Trails thought of bringing you to Everest base camp with overnight sleep there at the tented camp.

  • Sightseeing around the world's tallest Everest from a possible close range. 
  • If you cannot climb Mount Everest at least sleep at base camp for 1 night by avoiding the lodge trek every day.
  • Sleeping overnight at the Everest Base Camp, surrounded by the mighty mountains.
  • Walk over the lush alpine forest and the alluring shore of Dudh Koshi River.
  • Trekking on a trail traversed by the legendary climbers of Everest. 
  • Scenic flight to/from Lukla.
  • Sightseeing around Kathmandu.

Spend one night at Legendary Everest Base Camp, Sleep inside the tent under the stars, and feel the Everest base camp like climbers.

Everest Base Camp is the starting point to scale Everest. It is where mountaineers set up their camps before daring to ascend this highest peak in the world. But the Everest Base Camp is not simply for mountaineers and expeditionists alike. It is a joy of a place that thousands of trekkers traverse every year. But most of the trekkers visit the place, probably in the afternoon, and trudge back to Gorak Shep, a village that offers you the coziness of guesthouses. However,Sublime Trails has come up with an ingenious experience where youcan sleep at the Everest Base Camp.

Before you gasp at the thought of Sleeping at the Everest Base Camp and dismiss the whole idea, we would like you to take a look at the complete picture. And we’d like to put a gentle reminder too: it is not going to be the smoothest of rides. You need to prepare your body well, acclimatize as much as you can and probably spend a few or even more than a few days adjusting to the depleting oxygen levels in the trekking terrains of the Everest Region. And with a lot of hard luck and a bit of fortune (that you need because you never know beforehand if anyone’s body will properly adjust to the climate), you will be able to complete the Sleeping at Everest Base Camp Overnight Trek.

Everest Trek with Sleeping at base camp

History of Sleeping at the Everest Base Camp

The Everest Base Camp located in Nepal is one of the two Everest Base Camps- the other one being located in Tibet. Reaching a towering 5545 meters, the Everest Base Camp located in Nepal which is also known as the Southern Base Camp was first summited by a group named “Icefall Party” in 12th April 1953. When people of this famed group that included Sir Edmund Hillary first reached this place, it was merely a glacial moraine- but a moraine that was bedded by dry ice at the bottom of Khumbu icefall.

Since the 70-odd years or so after it was first mounted, Everest Base Camp has changed drastically, and so have the places around it. There is habitation in nearby villages, medical emergencies can be easily attended to, and food supplies that were, during the times of Hillary, unavailable, can be easily accessed. Therefore, many people these days have a view that is opposite to what Hillary had about EBC. He thought that the Everest Base Camp was not a special place and that it wasn’t a decent place to relax too. But with the effort of companies like Sublime Trails, which transports many mountaineers and trekkers to the dreamland that is Everest, people now put reaching and sleeping overnight at the Everest Base Camp on their bucket list.

Not simply that Everest Base Camp is a wonder of a place to reach, it is also a place where the “highest party of the earth” was organized. British DJ Paul Oakenfold held a party for 100 climbers at the Everest Base Camp. His whole idea behind organizing this event was because he wanted to shed light on the environment at the Everest Base Camp. If an all-out party can be organized at the Everest Base Camp, we can at least merit the idea of sleeping overnight there during your trek.

What Makes Sleeping at the Everest Base Camp Possible?

There are a few things to keep in mind. Even people who have been to the Everest Base Camp once without any health concerns might suffer from altitude sickness if they choose to go the other time. Even local Sherpas who’ve spent a year or two outside this region suffer from pangs of altitude sickness if they return here after a long time. So we advise every traveler wishing to complete this trek to take their journey as slowly as possible.

Benefits of Acclimatization

One of the ways of doing this is by spending a day acclimatizing at the Namche Bazaar. After your flight lands in Lukla, it takes you a couple of days to get to Namche. And this is a major spot for acclimatizing. Acclimatizing doesn’t simply mean that you spend the day resting in your lodge. It mans trekking for a few hours to reach Hotel Everest View, which is located at an altitude that is 500 meters higher than Namche. It also involves getting to Hillary School, Hillary View Point, and other notable places that make you get used to higher altitudes. After this tour, we trudge back to Namche Bazaar.

In a similar manner, we also spend another day acclimatizing in Dingboche. In a manner that is not too dissimilar to what we did in Namche Bazaar, we spend the day following our reach to Dingboche acclimatizing. And the acclimatization involves reaching Nangkartshang.

Eating Healthy

In addition to the benefits of acclimatization days, you will also have to ensure that you eat and drink as healthily as possible. And that means that you avoid processed food as much as you can. Nepalese have an adage: “Dal Bhat Power 24 hours” i.e. the traditional Nepali Dal Bhaat you will eat keeps you charged for 24 hours. Yes you might want to increase protein supplies to your body by eating dry fruits or chocolates for power-snacking, we advise you to stay away from other forms of processed food as much as possible.

Also, make sure that you keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. This means cutting down or avoiding liquor during the trek and increasing the intake of water. Since there will be a strong wind blowing along the way, you will have to wrap yourself around with robust clothing. Robust clothing coupled with upward ascent tends to dehydrate your body and sap your energy. Make sure that you constantly recharge your body with the pristine mountain water that you get along the way. If you think you need to go for bottled water, you can do that too. Just make sure that you’re properly hydrated.

Safety

The strongest reason why overnight Sleeping at the Everest Base Camp trek seems impossible at the outset is that many people are concerned with their safety. And justifiably so.

As there are no tangible houses in the Everest Base Camp region, and the exact location of where the camping is done depends upon the local weather, it is impossible to precisely mark the location where our tents will be set up beforehand.

In order to ensure safety, we provide you with oxygen supplements and masks that go along with it. We also ensure that you get much more than a decent meal. We also provide you with warm sleeping bags and blankets that keep the surrounding cold away.

Reasons to Pick Sublime Trails For Everest base camp overnight trek

Our team

Our team at Sublime Trails comprises the most experienced Guides and Porters. We make sure that they are locals of the places you visit. They have completed the overnight EBC trek plenty of times. This is why they can come up with unique stories about the history, culture as well as heritage of the place you are trekking to. We also give porters proper training so that they mature into guides and climb up the social ladder. The guides, as well as porters, are properly insured too. This ensures that the community of the various villages where you trek during your Everest Base Camp trek grows. Most of the time, we provide 1 porter for 1 person and 1 guide is shared between 5 people.

Proper training advice

Most of the people who come for the Sleep at Everest Base Camp trek come with a mentality that they will rely on helicopters when things get a tad challenging during the trek. This mindset is often what deters them from completing the proper physical training that is needed to complete the EBC trek. EBC takes you to an altitude of more than 5500 meters. This is why you need to get into shape with exercises that build your endurance. This includes strength training or taking a hike for a few days before you attempt the overnight Everest Base Camp trek. If your health deteriorates to a point where evacuation becomes mandatory, helicopters are always there.

First Local company to offer the trip

Sublime Trails has been doing the Everest trek with overnight stays at Base Camp for a long time to our direct clients. After we received rave reviews from them, we became confident that we could go beyond and offer our services to new and enthusiastic trekkers who would want to experience not only the trek to the Everest Base Camp but sleep at the Base Camp overnight. The fact that we have got the tinge of being the first local company to offer the trip, we feel deeply for the community there. This is why we focus on traveling sustainably to the pristine region that is the Everest Base Camp. And also support the community there. 

Our amenities

We make sure that you bask in the warmth of regular tea houses until you reach the highest settlement during the trek i.e. Gorak Shep. And that comes with all inclusive food. Your concern might be your sleep during the Everest Base Camp trek. But you don’t need to worry. But we provide the best quality tents for one night at the Everest Base camp. They come with the best insulation against the chill of the Everest region. We also provide you a sleeping bag with inner fleece liner for extra warmth. In addition, we provide good food for one night stay at Base Camp. And sufficient hot drinks. 

Altitude preventions

Our guides are properly trained in basic first-aid and carry the corresponding tool with them at all times during the Everest Base Camp trek while sleeping overnight. The medication includes Diamox in proportion to the number of people that are trekking and the number of days it takes you to get to the Base Camp and back. The guides will also carry other medication in need. Further, we also have the provision of oxygen facilities for people in need. And if trekkers are sick during the night time, we help the trekkers descend via horse. We are always doing the extra mile in order to save people that have traces of altitude sickness during the EBC trek with an overnight at the Base Camp.  

Environmental concern

Preserving the environment of the Base Camp falls among our topmost priorities when we are doing the Everest Base Camp trek. We often see pictures of mounds of oxygen cylinders that mountaineers leave during the ascent to the top of Mt. Everest. In order to not make the same mistake, we bring all the garbage that we produced during the one-night stay at the Everest Base Camp. The other thing on our checklist is to bring back all the waste including toilet papers so that we dispose of them at the proper place. And the motto of sustainable travel and Carbon neutral travel that we have at Sublime Trails doesn’t budge during the trek to the Everest Base Camp.

Better Lodge and better food

We understand the importance of good lodges and even better food while you are trekking to the Everest Base Camp trek with overnight sleeping. This is why we make sure that the lodges you go to are well insulated and provide the necessary warmth that is needed to enjoy a relaxed sleep. The rooms are well made and come with blankets and pillows that are warmly comforting. The same is true of food. We serve the standard 3 meals a day to you. We make sure that the food comes with nutrition that matches the energy that you spend during the trek. During your overnight Everest Base Camp trek, we serve you vegetables that are locally grown. This ensures that the Carbon footprint of transporting vegetables from other areas is cut down.

What makes sleeping at Everest Base Camp Overnight trek special?

After the sightseeing, travelers head back to Gorak Shep overnight. But, it's not as thrilling as sleeping in a tent at Everest Base Camp. Watching twinkling and shooting stars while curling inside a warm blanket is an unmatched experience. Also, the vibe of being around the mighty Everest and other peaks makes you calm. This fashion of the Everest trek is popular among travelers.

How safe is sleeping at Everest Base Camp Overnight trek?

Safety comes first when you are traveling over 5,000 meters. Further, while sleeping at Everest Base Camp, it has to be with utmost comfort and safety. To keep health safety in the first place, we will provide oxygen supplements with masks to individuals. Our chefs will serve you quality food for an overnight sleep at EBC. Warm sleeping bags and blankets are also crucial to keep you warm all night. Not to worry, we will manage each item that keeps you warm and safe. Our seasoned guides with more than a decade of guiding experience will be there for your service. 

Best time for sleeping at Everest Base Camp Overnight trek.

All trekkers with a veritable enthusiasm to trek to Everest Base Camp might already know that Spring and Autumn mark the best time to Sleep at Everest Base Camp Overnight trek. During these months, the rains are not as heavy as some other months of monsoon nor is the temperature unbearably cold like in the winter.

March, April, and May- which mark the spring season- are the three months when expeditionists visit the Everest Base Camp and set up their tents before marching off to the highest peak in the world. Seeing a lot of other climbers not only gives you a chance to share your experience with them but also get lessons from them for climbing in the future (if you’d like to do that). In addition, a strong social presence also gives you much-needed mental support as you will feel that this trek is doable.

Another season where you can enjoy the Everest Base Camp Overnight Trek is the months of autumn- September, October, and November. The early days of September might still have remnants of the monsoon while the latter days of November might mark the presence of the looming winters and make it a tad colder than you expect.

Regardless, the temperature during the daytime in the aforementioned best seasons would be around 10-15 degrees. During the night time, it might get to as low as -15 degrees, but with proper safety measures that we will provide you with and assisted guidance, you need not worry about it too much.

In Autumn months like September, October, November, and December, the daytime temperature at Everest Base Camp average 17°C. This warmer temperature makes daytime hikes a lot easier. Also, the nighttime temperature is not that cold in these months in the base camp. The average nighttime temperature at EBC falls to -6°C in October and -12°C in November.

As in Spring, the proper gear, down jackets, and warm sleeping bags let you curl comfortably.

Detail Itinerary

Day 1:Arrival in Kathmandu

  • Max Altitude1345m
  • Accommodation3-star hotel
  • MealsNone

You will land at Kathmandu airport on your arrival in Nepal. After luggage checks, you have to go through some on-arrival visas and documentation work.

In the meantime, a representative from Sublime Trails will be there to greet you at the airport. As he will be carrying a display board with your name on it, you shouldn’t find it difficult to recognize him.

Our representative will then drop you off at the hotel. Resting this day will be a good option as chances are that you will be jet-lagged. Before heading off on the trek to Everest Base Camp where you will sleep overnight, you should make sure that you don’t carry the hang of a long flight to Nepal.

Day 2:Kathmandu sightseeing and pre-trek presentation

  • Max Altitude1345
  • Accommodation3 star hotel
  • MealsBreakfast

When you freshen up in the morning, having got rid of the effects of jet lag, you’ll take a tour of Kathmandu.

Kathmandu’s culturally rich history and artefacts are the reasons why there are many UNESCO World Heritage Sites in this ancient valley. Swoyambhu, Boudhanath, and Pashupatinath are the most visited places as they offer glimpses into the religions and religious practices of the people here. Likewise, Durbar Squares in Lalitpur, Bhaktapur, and Kathmandu have ancient museums, which are treasure troves of information about the history of this city.

If you have already been to these places before and want to travel to off-beat locations, don’t hesitate to let us know. We can also arrange that.

We will also brief you on the trek this day. The tour guide and manager of Sublime Trails will deliver a presentation related to the Sleeping at Everest Base Camp trek. This session will cover almost all the information you need beforehand. Since this will be a cozy, conversational style of presentation, you should feel free to ask anything you need to know about this trek.

Also, If there is clothing or gear that you have not purchased for our trek, this is the day to do so.

Day 3:Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding:

  • Max Altitude2,600m/8,531ft
  • AccommodationTea House
  • MealsBLD

A 30-minute scenic flight from Kathmandu takes you to Lukla airport. Located at an altitude of mighty 2800 meters, a flight to this airport is a dream for many travel enthusiasts as you will be able to get glimpses of the beautiful mountains in the country.

You will feel a discernible change in the climate once you reach Lukla. Its cold breeze, and the mountains, and hills that surround this airport are not like anything you might have experienced before.

The first day's walk from Lukla to Phakding will take you close to 4 hours. Phakding is a beautiful village at 2610 meters. With only 30-40 houses, it might not be the biggest of villages but certainly is amongst the most picturesque ones.

Along the trekking trail which is rocky, you can see lush forests. You will also encounter the Dudh Koshi river along with many fellow trekkers along the way to your overnight stay in a lodge at Phakding.

Day 4:Trek to Namche Bazzar:

  • Max Altitude3,450m/11,319ft
  • AccommodationTea Hosue
  • MealsBLD

On this day, you leave for Namche Bazaar after having a hearty breakfast at Phakding. With a duration that is close to 6-7 hours, this day’s trek will be your first glimpse into the challenges of the Sleeping at Everest Base Camp Overnight Trek.

As a foreign national, you must submit trek permits at Monjo. You will be entering Sagarmatha National Park from here. The tea house at Monjo is a stopping place for lunch. It is also a perfect resting spot before continuing the walk to Namche.

From Monjo, the trek is more or less an ascent to Namche Bazaar. There are suspension bridges along the way where many people tie prayer flags. The waters of the Dudh Koshi river that you encounter along the way can be resounding at times- and so can the clarity of its waters.

Namche Bazar at 3,440 meters is the busiest and perhaps the last commercial travel hub in the Everest Region. If you have some energy to walk around Namche, you can do that in the evening. If not, we will explore this town the next day where we will be acclimatizing.

Day 5:Rest and acclimatization day:

  • Max Altitude3,450m/11,319ft
  • AccommodationTea Hosue
  • MealsBLD

As a change in altitude from 1400 meters in Kathmandu to 3400 meters in Namche in a space of fewer than 2 days- coupled with the tiring walks along the way- can be exhausting and cause altitude sickness, Namche serves as the first acclimatization place for this trek.

Hiking to the surrounding villages like Khunde and Khumjung will help you adjust to the climate of the Everest region. You can also trek to the Everest View Hotel for some splendid views of the whole of the Everest region.

Khumjung is home to some brilliant monasteries- one of which houses the supposed skull of Yeti. You can also see a rendition of how the Yeti looks at an art gallery there. If you’re someone who has a lot of strength and stamina and feels that the trek has been mild, you can go to vantage points like Hillary View Point.

You can also visit Khumjung Secondary School, which was built by Sir Edmund Hillary. After the acclimatization hike, we stroll back to our lodge at Namche for dinner.

Day 6:Trek to Deboche:

  • Max Altitude[3,720 m/12,205ft]
  • AccommodationTea Hosue
  • MealsBLD

All of your days begin with breakfast that prepares you for the rest of the day’s trek. Today is no different. After all, you’ll be hiking close to 12 kilometers- averaging 2 kilometers per hour in the terrains of this region.

The trail to Deboche first takes you to Kenjoma. The trail is more or less flat at the beginning and you’ll be able to see the confluence of several hills from the vantage point of the trek.

From Kenjomaa, you’ll be steeply ascending to Tengboche, a village that houses the famous Tengboche Monastery. Tengboche is a hill where the Imja Khola Rivers and Dudh Koshi converge. You can have fairly decent views of mountains such as Ama Dablam and  Everest from Tengboche. It might come as a surprise that Tenzing Norgay, the man who was the first to summit Everest along with Sir Edmund Hillary, was once sent to Tengboche Monastery to become a monk.

The trek from Tengboche to Deboche, the place where you stay overnight today,  is gentler as it is a gradual hike downwards.  Deboche greets you with the views of other peaks like Nuptse, Kantega, and Thamserku.

Day 7:Trek to Dingboche:

  • Max Altitude4,412m/14,475ft
  • AccommodationTea Hosue
  • MealsBLD

Today is the hike to the second place in the trek where you will be spending a day acclimatizing i.e. Dingboche. The hike is 13 kilometers in length and should take about 6 hours. You’ll first descend to  Imja Khola valley before heading upwards to Pangboche, a small village that is also home to a primary-level school.

You will reach Dingboche around the evening. There are a few ridges in Dingboche which will obstruct your view of the Everest. But there are other peaks like Nuptse, Lhotse around. Island Peak and Ama Dablam that make for splendid viewing.

As you head to Dingboche, you’ll feel a certain thinning of vegetation and your trail is getting more and more devoid of tree lines. As the treks get to high altitude, you’ll also feel that walking a kilometer is taking more of your strength. So we will make sure that we stay at Dingboche tomorrow as well giving ourselves enough time to acclimatize and not become prey to altitude sickness.

Day 8:Acclimatization hike to Nagartsang Peak:

  • Max Altitude5,083m/16,625ft
  • AccommodationTea Hosue
  • MealsBLD

As with our stay at Namche, we will walk around the beautiful places at Dingboche to get ourselves acclimatized and prepare for our ascent to the Everest Base Camp. This will also be the first day in your journey where you will touch an altitude of 5000 meters.

The acclimatization hike will take you to Nangkartshang peak, which lies at an altitude of 5083 metres. A popular sightseeing spot, Nangkartshang Peak takes about 5 hours to reach and offers delightful views of prominent mountains of the Khumbu region like Tawache, Pumori, Everest, Lhotse, and Island Peak.

If you want to, you can also decide to go to Chhukung, which is great place to view Mount Makalu. After your acclimatization hike, you will come back to Dingboche and splend a night here.

Day 9:Trek to Lobuche:

  • Max Altitude4,910m/16,109ft
  • AccommodationTea House
  • MealsBLD

Day 9 of your Everest Base Camp trek is a five-hour hike from Dingboche to Lobuche.

After having breakfast at Dingboche, you’ll start your hike and reach Pheriche. There’s a trekker’s post office here and the village also offers medical assistance for someone who has caught an injury.

The next resting spot in this day’s trek is Thugla, which is 4600 meters high. The upward ascent to Lobuche will be quite strenuous as the depleted oxygen levels are bound to make the hike a bit of a drag. Along the way, you will also witness the memorial of dreamers, who failed but tried their whole life to get to the top of Everest. Lobuche offers you glimpses of Khumbu glacier, Nuptse, and Tawache.

Day 10:Trek to Gorak Shep:

  • Max Altitude5,140m/16,864ft
  • AccommodationTea Hosue
  • MealsBLD

After all the hardship that you undertook to reach Lobuche, you’ll rip off the rewards for your perseverance as today is the day you will reach the Everest Base Camp. But before getting there, you have to trek along the rugged trails that take you to Gorak Shep in 4 hours.

For lunch and some rest, you’ll stop at Gorak Shep for an hour. After a proper meal, the hike to Everest Base Camp gets exciting as you’ll get closer to the Khumbu glacier. Walking over a frozen lakebed is a once-in-alifetime experience after all.

After some steep climb and descent, you’ll head to the base camp of Everest. It might come as a surprise that the Everest Base Camp is not the place where you get the most wonderful views of the Everest. The early hike tomorrow orning is where  you get the best views of the Everest. But in order to make that possible, you’ll descend down to Gorak Shep and get a proper night’s seep there.

Day 11:Hike up to Kalapathar (5,545m) and trek to Everest Base Camp for an overnight:

  • Max Altitude5,364m/17,559ft
  • AccommodationTented Camp
  • MealsBLD

After having breakfast at Gorak Shep, you’ll hike to Kala Patthar for 3 hours to witness the golden hue of Everest as it basks in the morning sunrise. The most iconic pictures that you might have seen of the Everest Base Camp come From Kala Patthar. From the vantage point of this place, you can also see the Base Camp, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makalu.

Hiking to Khumbu icefall is another attraction of the excursion of this day. The icefall gives you a unique view of Lhotse. With the help of fixed lines, you'll experience some walks on the icefall. A pleasant round of sightseeing around concludes the day.

After sightseeing, we head to the main attraction of this trek: your overnight sleep in the Everest Base Camp. With the proper tent setup, utmost health safety, supplemental oxygen, foods, and warm sleeping bags that we manage for you, you’ll have a sound sleep at the Everest Base Camp..

Day 12:Trek to Pheriche:

  • Max Altitude4,371m/14,340ft
  • AccommodationTea House
  • MealsBLD

After the successful overnight stay at Everest Base Camp, you'll head back to Pheriche via Gorak Shep and Lobuche. The distance to Pheriche is 14 km, and it takes approximately seven hours of trekking.

Your descent to Pheriche starts with heading back to the picturesque village of Gorak Shep. From here, we'll descend to Lobuche with a slow-paced hike. Pheriche will be the place for overnight on this day.

The trek now becomes more pleasant as you’ll not have any more strenuous hikes like you did while heading to the Everest Base Camp. The fact that you’ve ascended to the Base Camp will also give you a lot of confidence to mount the various small ascents along the way.

Day 13:Trek to Namche Bazar:

  • Max Altitude3,450m/11,319ft
  • AccommodationTea Hosue
  • MealsBLD

Trek to Namche from Pheriche is a seven-hour walk covering almost 3 kilometers per hour. The descent down of almost 1000 meters will has some rugged trails with some ups and downs. The suspension bridges over the Dudh Koshi River and the quiet tranquility of the hills and mountains that you’ll experience adds to the whole experience of the trek. If you're lucky, you'll get some glimpses of wild goats and pheasants of Sagarmatha National Park.

You'll stop at Sansa for some rest. From here,, you can enjoy the majestic view of Ama Dablam and Thamserku. Traversing the trail and some lush forests takes you to Namche Bazar. This is where you spend the night.

Day 14:Trek to Lukla:

  • Max Altitude2,800m/9187ft
  • AccommodationTea Hosue
  • MealsBLD

Although the walk of 19 kilometers to Lukla can feel daunting because of the sheer number, you will know that it is not as difficult as it seems. This is because of the fact that the trek until Monjo is a fair decent.  Sure there are a few ascents that you have to make, but none of them is remotely as difficult as the ones you have made during your trek to the Base Camp.

Further, the fact that you have walked so rigorously during this time will have prepared your body for the mild ascents along the way. After hiking for 6-7 hours, you will reach Lukla- the last resting place in the Everest Region before you head out to Kathmandu.

Day 15:Fly back to Kathmandu

  • Max Altitude1,350m/4,430ft
  • Accommodation3 star hotel
  • MealsBD

As the weather in Lukla is really dynamic, most of the flights take place in the early morning. The early mornings are also the time when the Sun has its golden hue that is rubbed quite splendidly along the mountains of the Everest region. You get to experience the mountains of the Everest region in all its glittering gold for the very last time on this flight.

After you land in Kathmandu, you can take a shower and freshen up for strolls around Kathmandu valley. Given that you’ll be heading home the next day, this day will be your last chance to get some souvenirs for your loved ones back home.

Day 16:Departure

  • AccommodationNone
  • MealsBreakfast

Today is the day when this tour ends with your departure to your home. Make sure that you have checked your travel documents before you head out to the airport.

We hope that your trek with Sublime Trails was as sublime as we are always looking out to make. If you want to extend your stay in Nepal or travel to other places, we hope that you reach out to us.

Additional Information

Meals in Everest Base Camp Overnight Trek

Everest Base Camp trek and sleeping overnight at the base camp is an exciting trip for you. While staying at the base camp, our kitchen staff prepares nutritious and warm meals for you. The food you'll eat at base camp includes cereals, pancakes, bread, noodles, rice, fruits, vegetables, warm soups, etc.

We make sure that you get adequate nutritious foods at the base camp.

On the trek from Lukla to Gorak Shep, you'll stay overnight at tea houses. The tea houses offer varieties of decent meals. The trek package includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Tea, coffee, toast, omelet, porridge with honey, soups, and other foods are breakfast items for you. For lunch, you'll get Thukpa, Spaghetti, Pizza, Sandwiches, and Nepali Dal Bhat, which contains rice, vegetables, lentil soups, and pickles. The meal menu for dinner will be similar to that of lunch.

While you stay in Kathmandu, you can enjoy the meals of your choice. We only offer breakfast at the hotel you accommodate in Kathmandu but not lunch and dinner.

Safety and Security while Sleeping at Everest Base Camp Trek for Overnight

Sleeping at Everest Base Camp overnight can be risky without proper plans and logistics. Hence, to minimize the potential risk, Sublime Trails commits the 100% arrangements of safety materials like bottled oxygen, nutritious meals, warm overnight sleeping bags, tents at secured places, far from avalanche-prone areas and much more.

Our primary concern is the safety and security of clients joining the Overnight Sleeping at Everest Base Camp trek. Hence, our expert guides and porters will assist you throughout the trip. If necessary, proper medical attention during emergencies with helicopter evacuation will always be within reach.

The porters will carry up to 15kg backpacks and ensure that your gears are safe. You can carry important stuff like documents, money, passports, cellular devices, and gadgets on your own for better safety and a worry-less hike.

The baggage weight limit for airlines and porters

We recommend you carry a medium-lightweight backpack that can accommodate approximately 10kg of gear and essentials. You don't need a porter if you include your bags within this weight limit and can take the backpack the entire trekking period. But if you can't, then you have to get a porter.

In the Sleeping at Everest Base Camp trek, we provide one porter for two trekkers. In this way, a porter carries not more than 30kg of two on shared. But, if the weight limit crosses 30 kilograms, you must hire a new porter, and the expense will increase.

Similarly, the airlines allow a 15kg baggage weight limit for trekkers at the airport, 10kg on a backpack and 5kg on hand carry. For weight exceeding the limit, airlines charge fees as per their policies.

Make a decent plan on what to carry and what not to carry based on your preferences.

Trek Difficulty

Trekking to Everest Base Camp and sleeping overnight at the base camp is easy to moderate grade difficulty.

The trek from Lukla to Phakding and Namche Bazaar is easy and comfortable. The well-maintained trekking trails with a single route are easy to hike and navigate. The acclimatization at Namche Bazaar prepares you well for future hikes to Tengboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche. The rugged landscape of Lobuche, Gorak Shep, and base camp is moderately challenging. The fatigue from the previous day's hike and low oxygen levels will make you feel tired.

You won't have difficulty accommodating at the base camp in tented camps. Our trek crew with the best kitchen staff will prepare meals and make you feel at home.

Flight Delays and Transportation

We operate sleeping Everest Base Camp overnight trek in Autumn and Spring. During these two seasons, the weather clears, the temperature becomes mild, and significantly, no rainy days. In such ideal conditions, the Kathmandu Lukla flight takes place every day.

Flight delay happens during high air traffic, but there's a rare chance of flight cancellation in Spring and Autumn. Plan one or two extra days as buffer days for possible bad weather conditions. But for rest, you'll be fine.

Porters and mules carry all the backpacks and items for camping at Everest Base Camp. If you cannot hike due to tiredness, you can get the horse ride service from any point in Khumbu to Everest Base Camp.

As a complimentary ride, upon arrival and departure, a Sublime Trails representative will pick you up and drop you at/from your hotel.

Guides and Porters Safety

Sublime Trails employs fit and experienced guides for Everest trekking. Our porters and guides have health insurance covering medical emergencies and issues. Like we commit to the safety of clients joining Overnight sleep at Everest Base Camp trek, we prioritize our guides and porters equally.

Altitude sickness and prevention

You may experience some symptoms of altitude sickness like headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, shortness of breath etc.

With common medicines like paracetamol, trekkers become able to dodge these symptoms. But, for some, the body reacts differently to the altitude, and signs grow severe.

If you feel discomfort with these symptoms, we encourage you to talk to your trek guide. Your trek guide will act according to your health issues. If you recover with essential medications, guides will take care of you. But, if things get serious, the manual calls a helicopter for emergency evacuation.

Avoid drinking caffeinated and alcoholic beverages throughout the trek to prevent altitude sickness. Also, drinking plenty of lukewarm water and eating adequate meals help you to avoid high altitude sickness. If you want to take some medicines, we recommend carrying one or two tablets of Diamox, which allows trekkers to prevent altitude sickness.

At Everest Base Camp, while accommodating and sleeping for a day, you'll get bottled oxygen if you feel difficulty breathing.

Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance is the most important document you must carry while trekking at high altitudes. Trekkers joining the group for Everest Base Camp Trek in Autumn with overnight sleeping at base camp must have a copy of the insurance document.

In unforeseeable situations during altitude sickness and health injuries, helicopter evacuations can only be the last hope. So, to call a helicopter on time, you just need travel insurance. Decent travel insurance covers the expense of helicopter and medication bills. So, travel insurance lets you enjoy a worry-less hike on the Everest trekking route.

Respect for ethnic cultures and values

Sherpa people are inhabitants of the Khumbu region. These people's lifestyle, culture, tradition, festivals, and values lure thousands of trekkers to trek to Everest and witness these elements. Some festivals like Mani Rimdu and Buddha Purnima at Tengboche, for which many trekkers plan their visit in August.

There's no denying that excessive tourism and trekking in this region have caused some imbalances environmentally, culturally, and economically. Increased human activity in these areas has brought cultural differences. Hence, to lower the conflict between cultures and lessen the environmental impact, we encourage our clients to join Everest Base Camp Trek to practice sustainable trekking and respect the locals.

In most situations, these people become helpful and assist you on multiple occasions. Passing a smile to locals won't cost you a penny. But, it creates a harmony of peace and love among travelers and locals.

Tip for trek Guides and Porters

At the end of successful overnight sleeping at the Everest Base Camp trek, you must tip the trek guides and porters. You can list them as much as you like, but the common practice among trekkers is tipping 10% of the trek cost to the guide and porters. They expect some tips from you at the end of the trip.

Your tip can be a hope of encouragement for them to continue working and assisting trekkers to reach the wonderful place of Everest.

    16 days trip to Everest Base Camp

    Mr Ram from Sublime Trails was very communicative and friendly from the start to the end of this adventure; we went to Everest Base Camp. We arrived in early September this year in Nepal. Mr Ram was at the airport to welcome us and also dropped us at the hotel.

    The flight to Lukla and hike to Namche Bazaar and Hotel Everest View was a fantastic hiking experience. My trek guide, Mr Shiva, was a very cheerful person. He was constantly asking us about how we were doing throughout the hike. He also did a fantastic job setting the base camp tent. Other trek crews and our chef for the base camp were also very wonderful and supportive.

    The feeling of sleeping close to Everest is indescribable. It was cold, but sleeping bags were good enough to warm us. Everything was excellent, and Sublime Trails well managed the logistics.

    I recommend anyone joining this trip to at least communicate with Sublime Trails and Mr Ram to check the availability of this trip. These guys are the absolute best for tour in Nepal

    Cosy night at Everest Base Camp, but a fantastic experience sleeping on it.

    It was some cold and cosy night at Everest Base Camp. Sleeping here was best experience I had in long time. I had been planning for this trip some years ago but this May, i finally managed to plan the trip, went on a fixed departure, and enjoyed the best of it.

    Sublime Trails became my travel companion for this trip. Also, my guide was fantastic person. Also, he took best photographs.
