Mount Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days is a moderate to difficult trekking in the Khumbu region of the eastern Himalayas. Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days attracts around 40,000 trekkers every year with a success rate of 95% and more. The Everest region isn't connected to the capital city by road, so a mountain flight is the only way to get to Lukla, the trailhead of the 14 Days EBC trekking. The classic 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek is including the day of arrival and departure and two acclimatization days.

Carrying the dreams of thousands of mountaineers, Mt. Everest stands tall at 8,848 meters in the Nepalese Himalayas. Although the summit of Everest isn't accessible to most, its base camp is. And we're here to take you on a glorious trekking journey to the Everest Base Camp, the most popular trekking destination in the world that makes you feel like you're at the top of the world.

Taking you through a winding path of forgotten valleys, past serene hills, and historic villages, the 14 Days EBC trekking normal route contains gems that genuinely make you believe in the quote, "Heaven is a myth; Nepal is real." The sunrise view of Mt. Everest and the surrounding mountains from Kala Patthar (5545 m) seems unreal.

Everest Base Camp Trekking 14 Days is a venture that allows you to explore the exotic flora and fauna of the Sagarmatha National Park in the Khumbu region, along with picturesque valleys, tempting mountains, beautiful glacial lakes, massive glaciers, diverse climatic zones, and vegetation. During the trek, you will find yourself in locations that feel like paradise, surrounded by snow-capped mountains such as Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, and Ama Dablam alongside Everest.

Age-old monasteries and chortens still decorate the trails of the Everest base camp trekking 14 days giving a spiritual bend to your journey. The cold breeze fluttering the prayer flags against the giant mountains makes a great view to watch while taking a break from the hike. The warm smiles of the locals saying, "Tashi Delek," make you feel welcomed in this land of great beauty. Sherpas, the Tibetan descendent Buddhists, inhabit the region.

What to Anticipate at the 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal?

Right from the start of the trip, you'll be fascinated by the aerial perspective of the great Himalayas as you fly from Kathmandu or Ramechhap to Lukla at 2845 meters. From the very first day, you'll be surrounded by snow-capped mountains that appear nearer and clearer each passing day. The hike officially begins at Lukla, taking you to Phakding, then Namche Bazaar, the unbelievable Himalayan town with modern amenities at an elevation of 3440 meters. You'll spend a day acclimatizing at Namche and continue the trek to Tyangboche, Dingboche (2nd acclimatization), Lobuche, and Gorekshep, the highest overnight stay of the EBC trekking at 5163 meters. The landscape turns from lush green to barren lands and finally to rocky mountains covered by snow. The incredible sight of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Amadablam, Thamserku, and Pumori during the trek can't be described in words, neither can we explain the feeling you get while standing at the foothill of the one and only Mt. Everest. You have to see it for yourself!

Likewise, the cultural aspect of the 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking is equally fulfilling. You'll pass by many small villages and spend the nights at some. You can expect a warm welcome by the locals with wide smiles and joined hands saying "Namaste" or "Tashi Delek." The main inhabitants of the Everest region are the well-known Sherpas, who's excelled in the mountains for years. These Tibetan descendants follow Buddhism, and their centuries-old culture is greatly influenced by it. You'll come across ancient monasteries, numerous chortens, mani walls, and prayer flags swaying at the backdrop of the giant Himalayas.

Besides the extreme natural beauty and warmth of the locals, you can also expect excellent trekking services from Outfitter Nepal, such as an English-speaking licensed guide, fit potters, airport transfers, flight tickets to and from Lukla, permits for the EBC trek, teahouse accommodation with 3 meals during the trek and 3-star hotel stay with breakfast in Kathmandu.

What does a typical day at the 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek look like?

Although each day brings a unique experience to your 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking Journey, you'll follow the same daily routine while trekking except for the acclimatization days. Your EBC trekking 14 Days day begins with a delicious breakfast at the mountain lodge you stayed the night. After breakfast, pack your backpacks, hit the trail of ascends, and descend for a few hours. We take a lunch break at a teahouse at approximately the midpoint of the day's hike. Your body will also get some rest during an hour or two of lunch break. Post lunch, you'll again hike for another few hours until you reach your destination for the day. Check in to your room, unwind your body, socialize at the dining hall, have dinner, and enjoy a good night's sleep.

Acclimatization days, on the other hand, are more leisurely. You can wake up late, stroll around the locality or go for short hikes between meals. Take enough rest but remember to move your body, as it is the best way to acclimatize.

Everest Base Camp Trekking - Is it right for you?

Despite the staggering elevation of the Everest Base Camp (5364 m), the trekking itself isn't that frightening. As the walk begins at an altitude of 2845 m at Lukla, the total elevation you gain as you reach the base camp is around 2500 m over a period of 8 days, which isn't extremely difficult. This is why the 14 Days EBC trekking is considered a moderate to difficult trek. The trek difficulty also depends on the trekker's overall health and weather conditions. If you're in sound health and are determined to accept the challenges as you go with open arms, you're a right fit for Everest base camp.

We have records of children as young as 3 years and 7 months and senior citizens as old as 75 reaching the Everest Base Camp on foot. Everest base camp is right for you regardless of age if you're physically fit, mentally strong, and willing to train properly.

Prepare yourself for 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking in Nepal

There's no hard-and-fast rule on how to prepare for the Everest Base Camp. You know the drill if you've experienced trekking in high altitudes. If you haven't, start by watching videos of people from your country who've successfully trekking to Everest base camp. Study the Everest region's climate, weather, and temperature. To get your body fit for the trek, indulge in cardiovascular workouts, weight training, and hiking up and down the hill with a backpack of 5-6 kgs for a few hours each week. Start 6 months prior to your departure.

Mental preparation is an essential part of it. Prepare yourself mentally to hike for several days in the uneven terrain of the isolated Himalayas without any healthcare facilities and spend nights in simple mountain lodges. Get to terms with the basic living facilities, constant weather changes, and high risks of altitude sickness.

                              14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty

                              The 14 Days base camp trek in the Everest Region is moderate. If you are someone trekking for the first time, especially on the Himalayan trail, then this trek can become difficult for you. You have to walk for around 5 to 6 hours at a minimum each day. The trail includes several ups & downs through the steep and rugged path as well. Good health and physical fitness are needed to go on this trek.

                              Are you worried that the EBC trek difficulty would ruin the overall experience? Don't worry; once you've gained a thorough understanding of the challenges you'll face, you can plan accordingly and tackle the trek challenges. Isn't it a waste of time to go on a trek if there aren't any obstacles to overcome? Overcoming the difficulty of the trip will make your walk even more memorable, and you will be more prepared for your next climb.

                              Best time to go on a trek to the Everest Region

                              "Nepal for all seasons," the motto goes. Trekking in Nepal is always favorable for trekkers, as it is possible to trek to the base camp at any time of year. However, the most preferable time to go on EBC Trek is in spring and autumn. The weather is more stable and moderate, which makes the journey joyful. March to May falls under spring, whereas October to November falls under autumn. You can also go on trekking in winter, however, the extreme cold will not be a good choice for most trekkers. You can get the best experience at the Base Camp Trek in October and the EBC trek in November for great shots of the Himalayas.

                              Permits needed for the Everest Region

                              Our 14 days trek package to the base camp region of the Everest trek requires two permits from the concerned authority. Everest Region has established a new permission system as a result of decentralization. A Trekker's Information Management System (TIMS) Card will no longer be required. The local government collects the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Permit directly. This permit is not accessible in Kathmandu and is only available in Lukla. All additional licenses can be obtained at the Nepal Tourism Board's Kathmandu headquarters. The costs and processes for obtaining these permits vary.

                              Trekking in the stunning landscapes of Sagarmatha National Park requires a Sagarmatha National Park permit. The Nepal Tourism Board's office on Pradarshani Marg, Kathmandu, sells the Sagarmatha National Park Permit. Thamel may be reached in 30 minutes on foot. The Sagarmatha National Park Permit can also be obtained at Monjo. Monjo, a small town, serves as the park's entry. Trekkers who wish to trek the pristine foothills in the Everest Region must obtain a Sagarmatha National Park permit.

                              Weather in the Everest Region including the Everest Base Camp

                              Seasons affect the weather and climate of the Base Camp. Thus, we categorize the weather and surroundings into four seasons: spring, monsoon, autumn, and winter. The weather is pleasant and dry in the spring (March to May). The visibility is excellent, making this the best trekking season for Everest. Similarly, rain keeps the path wet during the monsoon season (June to August). Because of patches of cloud, vision is also hazy. Hence, we do not advise trekking during the monsoon season. However, it is still doable.

                              The trek is also best done in the autumn (September to November). The weather is dry and bright, and visibility is excellent at this time. The winter months (December to February) are extremely chilly. The walkway is covered in snow, making walking difficult. Expect the mountains to be cold. On the top, it's always frigid. The weather becomes windy in the afternoon, with heavy breezes. Trekking is still possible in Nepal during the early or late winter.

                              Length of the 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

                              The 14 Days EBC Trek is 130 kilometers long, or roughly 80 miles, from Lukla to Kathmandu. Similarly, starting from Namche Bazaar and returning is 51.2 kilometers. In addition, the journey from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp is approximately 153 kilometers in a straight line. It's also a long, classic, and well-known trekking excursion. The trek will take you to Mt. Everest's foothills, passing via many Sherpa settlements and natural heritage locations.

                              You will finish in 14 days with Outfitter Nepal, with two days set aside as acclimatization days in the itinerary. The average daily walking distance is 12–15 kilometers, with a time commitment of 5-7 hours.

                              Lukla is the beginning point for the trek. We fly from Kathmandu to Lukla early in the morning because flying in the afternoon is difficult owing to strong winds. It takes about 30 minutes to go from Kathmandu to Lukla.

                              You will be met by a porter who will carry your luggage and a trekking guide for your journey once we arrive at Tenzing Hillary Airport, one of the world's most challenging high-altitude airports. Following your preparations, the guide will lead you on a journey to Phakding, which will take you along the Dudh Koshi River and through the alpine forest. It takes us three hours to trek from Lukla to Phakding, a distance of about eight kilometers.

                              That night, you'll spend the night in the finest guesthouse in the region. Take a break and enjoy the meal before your next day-long journey. After Phakding, we'll start our lengthy hiking days.

Wi-Fi is available in the larger cities of Namche and Lukla, but it may cost $1-$2 per device. An Everest Link prepaid internet card is required outside of Namche and Lukla. For 200 MB of internet, it can cost around 600 rupees ($6). This is available for purchase and usage in each of the guesthouses.

                              If you buy a SIM card in Kathmandu, you'll get a 4G service in Namche and an occasional 3G service in Tengboche. You can buy Ncell or Ntc prepaid SIM cards which won’t cost must but will provide you service until certain points! Phone networks are unavailable at higher elevations. As a result, the locals rely on the Internet services of Everest Link. Surprisingly, there is an NTC tower at Gorakshep, therefore calls can be made via NTC.

                              However, Namche's ATMs are unpredictable, and they're frequently out of operation owing to power outages or just running out of cash. The ATMs also charge a withdrawal fee of 500 rupees ($5) and have a maximum withdrawal limit of 10,000 rupees ($100). The bottom line, and something to keep in mind before ascending the base camp, is that you should bring all of your money from Kathmandu!!
