What to expect about the region's unique culture and traditions during the 12 days Everest Base Camp Trekking Journey?

Spending the night in various villages in the Everest Region, where you can learn about the Sherpa culture and traditions from the locals, is a great opportunity to scratch the surface of the region's rich culture. People here are kind and helpful, so don't hesitate to approach them. They'd love to participate in the discussion and might share centuries-old legends. The whole expedition allows you to enjoy trekking in the Everest region while also learning about Buddhist temples and the Sherpa people of Nepal.

The Mani Rimbu celebration, the Sherpa people's biggest festival, takes place in monasteries during October and November when the Everest region is at its most pleasant and picturesque. Tourists visiting the Everest region this season will have the opportunity to take part in the Sherpa's wonderful festival. Namche Bazaar provides you with a once-in-a-lifetime experience around that time.

The ancient monastery in Tengboche would be a spectacular sight to see on the 12 days route to the legendary base camp. This old monastery, which is also a very important religious holy place in Khumbu, offers breathtaking views of Mt. Amadablam and the surrounding Himalayas. Guru Rinpoche will bless all pilgrims and visitors who enter this sacred site. The ancient monastery of Tengboche is living proof of the age-old cultural and religious history of Khumbu.

Lama Gulu erected the Tengboche monastery in 1916, but it was damaged in the 1934 earthquake. The monastery was later restored in the same year. However, the monastery was destroyed again by fire in 1989 and had to be rebuilt. Regardless of these tragedies, the Tengboche monastery is the Khumbu region's oldest and largest and a monument of pride for the local Buddhist Sherpas of the Everest region.

Why is Kala Patthar a must-see landmark on 12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek?

At the base of the Khumbu Glacier, the Everest Base Camp is surrounded by some of the world's most iconic Himalayas. Breathtaking views of the Himalayan mountains and glaciers can be seen from the camp. Reaching Everest's base camp is definitely a significant accomplishment in itself! Each year, thousands of trekkers visit the base camp for this view, but a little more stretch to Kala Patthar completely changes your trip!

Witnessing the other side of Mount Everest from Kala Patthar is the most crucial event in the entire 12 days journey. The Kala Patthar viewpoint is a popular landmark in the Khumbu region. Kala Patthar, located above the base camp, boasts 360-degree views of Everest and the surrounding mountains. As the summit of Everest is not visible from Base Camp due to its structure, most trekkers would choose to hike Kala Patthar to gaze at the magnificent beast!

From Kala Patthar's vantage point, the towering peaks of Nuptse, Changtse, and Lhotse can also be seen. Many tourists ascend Kala Patthar first thing in the morning to catch the sunrise, but the sun rises behind Everest and Lhotse, making for a poor picture, but still beautiful. Hiking to Kala Patthar is best done as the sun sets in the late afternoon. If the weather cooperates, you'll be able to see Everest and Lhotse bathed in golden light. A trip to Kala Patthar, at 5545 m, is a must during this 12 days EBC trek package just for the views!

Our standard base camp package lasts 12 days, but it can be customized to suit your needs! Please note that by adding more travel days, the length of the days in the itinerary package must be extended!

Note: Since the standard package to the base camp is of 12 days Everest Base Camp Trek from Kathmandu to Kathmandu, it is generally considered to be quite a limited time.

Useful InformationGood to know before you travel

Answers to some of your frequently asked questions:

How difficult is it to trek to the EBC?

The 12 Days Base Camp Package is a moderate trek. If you are new to trekking, especially on the Himalayan terrain, this trek can be challenging. Every day, you must walk for a minimum of 5 to 6 hours. The route features multiple ups and downs as well as a steep and difficult trail. This journey necessitates good health and physical fitness.

Are you concerned that the hardship of the EBC journey would affect the overall experience? Don't worry; once you've gained a complete awareness of the challenges you'll face, you can make appropriate plans and conquer the trek challenges. Isn't going on a trek pointless if there aren't any challenges to overcome? Overcoming the trip's difficulty will make your trek even more memorable, and you'll be better prepared for your next ascent.

Are any permits needed for trekking in the EBC Region?

Two permits from the concerned authority are required for our 12-day trek program to the Everest base camp premises. As a result of decentralization, the Everest Region has built a new authorization system. There will be no need for a Trekker's Information Management System (TIMS) Card. The Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Permit is collected directly by the local administration. This permission is only available in Lukla and is not available in Kathmandu. The Nepal Tourism Board's Kathmandu headquarters can provide all further licenses. The costs and procedures for getting these licenses can differ.

A Sagarmatha National Park permit is required for trekking in the park's spectacular landscapes. The Sagarmatha National Park Permit is purchased at the Nepal Tourism Board's office on Pradarshani Marg in Kathmandu. Thamel can be reached on foot in 30 minutes. Monjo is also where you can get a Sagarmatha National Park to permit. The park's entrance is located in Monjo, a tiny village. Trekkers who want to explore the Everest Region's pristine foothills must first get a Sagarmatha National Park to permit.

When is the best time to go on an EBC Trek?

The motto reads, "Nepal for all seasons." Trekking in Nepal is always a good idea because trekkers can reach the base camp at any time of year. Spring and October are, however, the best times to embark on EBC Trek. The weather has become more consistent and moderate, making the travel more enjoyable.

Spring is from March to May, whereas autumn is from October to November. You can also go trekking in the winter, however, most trekkers would avoid it due to the terrible cold. The Base Camp Trek in October provides the best opportunity for excellent Himalayan views!

What are the food options in the EBC Trek?

Your body will require enough carbohydrates and proteins because we'll be trekking at high altitudes around the world's highest peak. The food we are offered on this trek is modest and sanitary! We recommend opting for local cuisine and delicacies because they are far more sanitary. It's preferable than having frozen foods that take days to get to the trails.

We handpick the best hotels, resorts, and restaurants, ensuring that the food is fresh, healthy, and delicious. We recommend Dal Bhat, a Nepalese dish that provides enough carbohydrates and protein for your body. You'll get plenty of protein from the lentils, beans, and pulses soup. Syakpa, commonly known as Sherpa stew, is another favourite dish! Seasonal vegetables will also be served in the host's home, providing additional nutrients to your body.

You can also sample other menu items including Momo (dumplings), locally grown Barley, Buckwheat, Millet, and Corn Roti (Bread), noodles, sandwiches, bakery products, and tea, coffee, and more! Buckwheat, millet, and barley are high-fibre cereals that are also nutritionally dense. Noodles, spaghetti, macaroni, pizza, lasagna, various curry dishes, and fried rice are just a few examples of cuisines that can be prepared with minimal effort.

Green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea, and garlic soup (a must) are all recommended at high elevations, as well as fresh vegetable items. Though there will be plenty of non-vegetarian options, we will not recommend them because the meat may not be as sanitary.

Dairy and cheese products, as well as alcoholic beverages, caffeinated beverages, and hot chocolates, should all be avoided on high-altitude excursions, according to the experts.

What kind of accommodation services do you get in EBC Trek?

We can also assist you in finding a high-end hotel and teahouse that fits your budget. Our 12 days Everest base camp trekking package includes luxury and premium hotels and lodges as well as budget-friendly hotel and lodge accommodations.

The teahouse accommodation offers comfortable mattresses with cushions, electric blankets, hot and cold showers, free Wi-Fi, and other amenities. The rooms are usually small and shared by two people. The room has a mattress, blanket, and pillow, as well as a few pieces of furniture. If you're going on your own, we can arrange for separate rooms for you.

What should I pack for trekking in the Everest Region?

    I have done a trekking to the Everest Base Camp with Outfitter Nepal on May 2017. I really recommend this company. Everything was OK, the guide, the hotels and the support during all the trek. They exceeded the normal attention to the clients. When I needed a spare battery for my camera, the managers promptly found one on the Kathmandu market.

    They gave me a personal attention that was really amazing!!

    If you are going to Nepal, these guys are a very good choice.
