Optional: Embark on a bus ride to Ramechap, a small town that operates flights to Lukla, the gateway trekking in the Everest region.We highly recommend you to travel Manthali Airport one day prior to the Lukla flight instead of leave Kathmandu very early in the morning around 3:00 AM same day. It will make your day very hectic and not leave you in a good sprit to start your trek up to Phakding.

Overnight: Local lodge in Ramechhap

Dear guest, Please be inform that due to traffic congestion as well as renovation in Kathmandu airport, most of Lukla flight has been operating from Manthali airport since July 2019. For your information, it takes roughly 4 hours drive to get Manthali airport from Kathmandu by Arniko Highway. This means you need to wake up early in the morning around 2:30 AM - 3:00 AM to go for a drive and catch your early morning Lukla flight from Manthali.

Another best options is you can go Ramechhap one day earlier by private Vehicle or you can fly to Lukla directly by Helicopter. For Helicopter flight it cost approximately USD 300-500 Per Person. If you are looking more comfortable & hassle free journey then flying by helicopter to Lukla would be best options.

If you want to drive Ramechhap as per original itinerary then, we will drive to Manthali Airport by our comfortable Private vehicle early in the morning. it takes about 4 hours to reach Manthali by road from Kathmandu. We take an early morning adventurous flight from Manthali Airport to Lukla. This air route is one of the most beautiful routes in the entire world filled with the highest peaks and incredible green forests. It takes around 20 minutes to reach Lukla by flight from Manthali Airport.

Arguably, this is one of the most beautiful sky routes in the world, which concludes in a remarkable landing on a hillside surrounded by high mountains peaks. Upon arrival at Lukla, you meet the other trekking members, and after some sorting and packing and arrangements, you will start your trek through the pretty wealthy village of Lukla until you reach Phakding.

To assist in acclimatization, we only have a short hike today. However, if you are interested in additional activities, we can take a side trip to a nearby monastery. This is our first Overnight in Phakding. Best Lodge accommodation

Namche Bazaar is situated between two ridges amidst the enormous peaks of the Khumbu and has a variety of lodges, teashops, and souvenir shops as well. Its sophisticated position seems to be developed enough to meet western standards, even at remote mountain outpost like this.

The enterprising Sherpa folks hereabouts have learned a lot from the big expeditions that have passed this way. Said to be the ‘Las Vegas’ of the Khumbu, Namche is just the place to spend a rest day, acclimatizing to the new altitude before setting off towards Tengboche.

After breakfast, our Sherpa guide will take you an acclimatization hike up the slopes above the Everest views hotel. Constructed by the Japanese this stunningly located hotel with delightful views of Everest and Ama Dablam is a perfect place for a tea break.

In Kunde, we will visit the Edmund Hillary hospital, and if the time permits, we will also visit the monastery in Khumjumg, where we can witness the only Yeti skull in the world paying a small amount of fee.

Our trek follows on the gradual trail with some ups and downs overlooking magnificent views of the high Himalaya. Along the way, we can spot wild fauna like pheasant, musk deer, or a herd of Himalayan Thar. The trail goes gradually down up to Kayangjuma. The path eventually reaches Sanasa, which is the major trail junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp.

The track then follows through the pine forests, and after we cross the prayer flags festooned bridge over Dudh Koshi River, we reach Phunki Thenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post amidst the alpine woods.

After having a relaxed lunch at Phunki Thenga, we then have a little tough climb steep up through the pine forests while before we reach Tengboche at 3,867m.

A real early start is required to reach the Everest Base Camp. It takes several hours as the trail weaves its way through ice pinnacles and past the crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier.

After a brief lunch and rest, we take the path to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorakshep Lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come through the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. Only upon reaching the Everest Base Camp do we appreciate the Everest climbers who brave the dangerous route through the Khumbu icefall.

Mountaineer's tents stand out in bright colors against the monotony of gray surroundings (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste, and Pumori are the mountains we can view from the base camp. On the return leg, we can take a higher route to get a grand view of the Khumbu icefall and the way to the South Col. We return to Gorakshep for a restful night. Best Lodge accommodation

All meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner (B, L, D)

Today is the most crucial part of our trip. We start early at dawn to catch the dramatic views from Kalapatthar witnessing the first light of day shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to get prepared for an early morning, dark and cold temperature (-10 to -14 C) departure beforehand.

Plus there is always the potential for chilling cold winds, which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to expose itself emerging between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse.

During the ascent to Kalapatthar, we can pause to catch our breath at several outstanding view points to click pictures. After several hours of rising, we reach Kalapatthar.

From here, we scuttle to climb the rocky outcrop near to the summit marked by Cairns and prayer flags. As we reach the top, we sit on the Kalapatthar rocks, and our eyes take in the unbelievable Himalayan views, wandering from one mighty massif to another.

We take as many pictures as we possibly can with our camera so they can last a lifetime. After this we make our way back to Pheriche with a slow descent; for a good night’s rest, which we truly deserve. Overnight at a local lodge after a great day – Best Lodge accommodation

All  meals included:Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner (B, L, D)

We lose approximately 2,000 feet in elevation today and walk on a trail with a lot of ups and downs. We descend through a hillside filled with rhododendron and juniper trees and cross a bridge over the Dudh Koshi River.

We descend rapidly through a pine forest where we can easily spot mountains goats, pheasants, and other wild animals and birds common to the area. The path eventually reaches Sansa from where we can enjoy views of Ama Dablam, Thamserku and Nuptse mountains.

We walk on winding trails followed by another walk through a forest before reaching Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar. Best Lodge Accommodation

All meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner (B, L, D)

Today, we begin to get warmed up by the light cool breeze. Although we are traveling the same route down, we enjoy entirely different views. We snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendron and pine forests, and in the distance snow covered peaks.

We take time and walk at our own pace today as this is the last day of our trek. We experience the Sherpa villages' profound faith in Buddhism and culture of prayer stones and prayer flags while we walk through the villages.

Upon arrival in Lukla, we have plenty of time to relax, stretch those aching legs, and recall the experiences of the last couple of days. We experience the culmination of a fantastic trek on a happy note with everyone back safe and sound with smiling faces! Upon arrival in Lukla, we stroll around while our leader will re-confirm our flight ticket. In the evening, we enjoy the last dinner with our crew and make it a party night, which calls for a celebration. Best Lodge accommodation

Today, after a hale and hearty breakfast, we fly back to Kathmandu after our long mountain journey. The early morning flight drops us at Kathmandu. We can rest and relax throughout the day at our hotel.

Wonderful Experience with this Amazing Sherpa Company

We trekked to Everest Base Camp with 3 of my friends in a group of 12 people. The trekking journey is definitely the best experience I ever had in my life. The friendly and cooperative staffs of the trekking company were quite experienced and helped and guided us during our entire trekking journey.

Having always lived a comfortable life, the accommodation at tea houses in the mountain felt somewhat difficult but it was the part of the adventure. We are very thankful to the Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions and their staffs who helped us enjoy the breath-taking mountain views and teaching us the local Nepali culture which made our journey much more memorable.

Best Trekking Experience

I and my girlfriend booked our Everest Base Camp Trek with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expedition. We successfully completed our trek without any difficulties or injury. We are happy that we chose the MSTE Company for our trekking journey. We are extremely happy and satisfied with the services provided to us. The trekking guide and porters were very friendly and took care of us all the time on the trail. Though it was our first trip to Nepal the friendliness and helpful nature of our guide didn’t let us feel being at an unknown place.

We enjoyed every moment of our trekking journey. Furthermore, we were provided with some trekking gears like a sleeping bag, down jacket, and a duffel bag without any extra charge for trekking. Our guide helped us with everything during our trek keeping our safety at priority. We are very happy with the services and guidance provided to us. They really were beyond our expectations. We recommend everyone to book their trekking journey in Nepal with this wonderful company. Believe me, they are the best companion to the Everet Base Camp Trek.

They were welcoming, experienced, and patient. Despite us often being near the back of A day before the start of the trek there is a briefing at the hotel, which is a good way to get to know about overall trekking. Also we got the company duffle bags for the stuff, which was carried, by the porters.

The first day began early morning with the pick up at our hotel and drive to Airport for Lukla Flight. After short but thrilling flight to Lukla, We met our Sherpa guides and Porters to start of the Everest base camp trek. Before the start there was a nice coffee and breakfast. On the trek itself we experienced that the guides took care of everyone of the group. They did a lot of stops, so you get a chance to take some rest and drink or eat something. Our guides never pushed us to speed up. They were outstanding in providing fascinating info about the places. The porters were amazing! The lodge accommodations and food was overall very good.

Best Everest base camp trek Reviews for Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions

We found Best Everest base camp Trek reviews online about Mountain Sherpa Trekking and booked our trek to Everest base camp. I can't express sufficient how great of an experience my friends and me had at Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions. All before the trek was set up so perfectly and efficiently, and they created such a warm and fun environment during the trek, it felt like we were a small family by the end of the trek.

We met as a group for an information session the night before we fly to Lukla. This was helpful and informative, and it allowed us to meet our group over tea too. The first day of the trek, we started off at the Everest base camp trek from Lukla after short flight from Kathmandu. The trek we took was absolutely beautiful. The views are unlike I have ever seen and I will never forget the beauty of the mountains and the terrain. No one in the group was rushed to finish the trek and our guides gave us spots to take breaks and wait for everyone before continuing. Overall, the trek was also gorgeous, and was mostly downhill.

We also had time throughout the trek to learn more about the Sherpa culture and lives of the local Sherpa people - this, after the insane views - is another reason you should definitely do the Everest base camp trek.

Last but not least, I want to commend our expert local Sherpa guides, Rinji Sherpa and Sonam Sherpa, and the rest of the Mountain Sherpa trekking & Expeditions crew that was on our trek. They are the main reasons that this was such a great experience. Rinji and Sonam knew so much information about the region, Sherpa culture, and history, and they spent a good portion of the trek teaching us new things. Beyond this, they took our care and safety as a priority. When I was feeling sick the first day,

Sonam stayed behind to confirm I was feeling better and to continue at my own pace. I made it to camp that night because of the patience and care of both of the guides! Last but not least, the food was incredible on the trek. The porters and the lodge and food was good - it was really amazing to see them carry all of our bags and the necessary equipment ahead of us. Thank you Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions for making my trip so memorable

Diego Fernandez [Spain]

“EVEREST BASE CAMP - Good Organization and Lhakpa Sonam Sherpa an outstanding guide”

“After spending 15 days in Everest Base Camp Trek, I have to congratulate Pasang and the team of Mountain Sherpa Trekking for their services.
I was a solo traveler but Pasang took care of me in Kathmandu picking me up on my arrival, helping me with all the arrangements (change money, rent equipment) and taking care of me after my trip once I had to come back to the airport. Great Service!
Best of best was my climbing sherpa/guide in Nepal (Lhakpa Sonam Sherpa). I totally recommend Lhakpa as a guide. Not only he is always focused on the wellness of his client, he knows everybody and everything in the region so he is always happy to share his experiences and advice the best for the trip.

I recommend this trip to anyone, it is a fantastic adventure and if organized by right people (like Mountain Sherpa Trekking) it is not as difficult as it looks even for those traveling alone”.

We did some looking around before deciding on going to base camp with Mountain Sherpa, and we are glad we did. We decided on them because of the price, communication and the fact that they are local - so our money wasn't going to the bottom line of a big company and we got the personal touch we were looking for. Our trip was customised to suit the flight dates that we had already booked in advance, and Sumba managed everything for us, including changing Lukla flight dates a couple of times to give us some more like in Kathmandu before our trek and having the amend bookings as one of our party got sick before we left Australia and had to drop out.
Communication with Sumba was always prompt and effective but still relaxed and friendly. The guides and porters that Sumba organised for us (Lhakpa, Pemba and Nyima) were fantastic: knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and good humoured. 1 of us was struggling with altitude sickness and they were all concerned and looked after him really well. We got up to base camp and back in 2 less days than expected (we came down pretty quickly) and it wasn't an issue to bring our flights back to Kathmandu forward and organise an extra couple of days accom in Kathmandu as well.
Overall an excellent trip - and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Mountain Sherpa to anyone looking to explore the Himalaya.

Everest base camp trek is not very difficult trek. But, a reasonable level of fitness is required to enjoy this trek fully. If you are relatively fit and don’t mid to walk 5-6 hours a day then you can walk to Everest base camp. As there are steep ascent and descents, rocky paths, rock steps and some moraine walking. So, this trek isn’t suitable for anyone with knee problems or weak ankles. Anyone with heart trouble or lung problems should check with their doctor.

We suggest you to do some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking before embark on your journey.

We provide accommodation you deluxe rooms at best three Star or five Star category hotels in Kathmandu with healthy breakfast included. Along the Everest base camp trek routes, we provide you Best Mountain lodges with attached bathroom & hot Shower wherever available. We can also offer you good quality sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping gear. The lodges in trekking routes generally provide single and double rooms, or seldom a dormitory. At times when possible, dining will be around a bon fire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in tea houses provides essential and basic facilities and will be outside the room in many places.

Check the terms and conditions of your travel insurance very carefully before embarking on the Everest Base Camp trek – the elevations involved are above 5000m, and many companies simply will not cover you at that level. (World Nomads offers trekking up to 6000m under its level 2 cover.)

You need to be covered for helicopter evacuation from the mountains in emergencies, and, if you have a connecting flight to your home country, are flying out of Lukla, and planes stop running, your insurance should cover the cost of a helicopter out of Lukla. We fully facilitate for our valued clients for any emergencies issue.

That very much depends on how much use you intend to get out of it. Reasonable quality gear is available in Kathmandu for a fraction of the price of the real deal. We will help out you to find good standards gears in Kathmandu.You also rent out down gear and sleeping bags, which are the most sensible option if you don’t think you’ll be using them again for a while.

The hotel we use in Kathmandu has a secure locked room where they store our Clients extra belongings in a safe way. You can also safely leave your belongings at our office.

Our expert Local Sherpa guides and porters are trained in mountain first aid and altitude related illness. The solution to severe altitude problems is always to descend.Thousands of our clients hike the Everest base camp trek each year and most do not have serious issues. If someone is unwell or has an accident, we evacuate them out to the nearest road or village where we organize helicopter evacuation back to Kathmandu. We always have sufficient staff with our crew so that one of our people can leave to care for the sick/injured client and the rest of the group can continue on with their trek or climb if they wish to.

We ensure the travel safety of all our trekking guests, both male and female. Nepal, on the whole, is both very safe and welcoming of foreign visitors. We have longstanding, strong relationships with the lodges we frequent, and know them to be safe and reliable. In addition our guides are consistently mindful of all guests' whereabouts while trekking. We travel in small groups, all the better to easily maintain continual contact.

No problem at all because the lodges mostly serve the vegetarian meals. We always recommend our clients to eat vegetarian meals to avoid the food poisoning, eating heavy meals and non- vegetarian meals at the high altitude is not really safe for the stomach.

This arrangement ensures that should anybody in the group get sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned. We can run the trek for groups of any size but we after years of experience we have found a maximum of twelve people to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you'd like to book this trip for a larger group then that can be arranged too.

However is something extra present to your staff after a special trek, however you must know that tips are not mandatory and instead you must take from different view of point as saying thanks after making successfully your trip to Everest Base camp. Normally, we recommend you to spend minimum 10% of your total trip cost for tipping entire local staffs, the ratio of tipping guide and porter will be given to you at the pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu before starting the trek.

It depends on your spending habits. Generally, in Kathmandu, you can allocate USD 10 to USD 15 for a lunch and a dinner. USD 10 to USD 15 per person a day will be enough to buy bottles of water, chocolates, pay for the hot shower and a few drinks during the trekking.

This is very practical matters for Everest base camp trek, however many company doesn't take it seriously,The flights between Kathmandu and Lukla are generally reliable but if the weather is not good they can be canceled for the entire day.
