Everest Base Camp Trekking
is, without doubt, one of the foremost and celebrated travel destinations in the world. For beginning trekkers to the most experienced, this is a chance to be at the foot of the world's highest mountain, Everest Base Camp at 5380 meters, has been a fashionable trekking destination since the path began over sixty years ago. The Everest Base Camp trek has many of the breathtaking mountains in the Himalayan range.

The trek begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (Tensing–Hillary Airport) generally a day or two after your arrival. The trail begins by following the Dudh Kosi river from Lukla north. The next day, the river weaves in and out of forests with low-lying vegetation of rhododendrons and dotted with villages and monasteries, ultimately reaching Namche Bazaar, an active bazaar, that is the last major outpost for trekkers. Namche Bazaar has spectacular views; two museums, many Internet cafes, pizza restaurants, 3 cafes (locally called bakeries).

Namche Bazaar is the gateway to many of the mountain peak climbing packages as well as base camp trekking. From here you will trek for four hours to Tengboche where there is a famous Buddhist monastery at 3,867 meters in Khumjung Village. The monastery is also known as Dawa Choling Gompa.

After Tengboche, the trail winds on to Pheriche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep. From Gorakshep, depending upon your fitness you could go to Everest Base Camp just after lunch, return to Gorakshep, then on to Kala Patthar that same afternoon. From Kala Patthar, afternoon and early evening photos are the best times to get the classic Everest photos with the golden sun going down on the summit. Alternatively, an afternoon trip to Base Camp and return to Gorakshep for the day.  The next morning, take an early morning hike to Kala Patthar for spectacular views of Everest West Shoulder, Everest, and Nuptse.

From Gorakshep, you will return to Lukla via the route you came with overnight stops at Pheriche and Namche Bazaar, and on to Lukla for a final overnight, then an early morning flight to Kathmandu.

The following gives you a general idea of the personal items that you can bring for the trek. The personal items are of individual interest and choice. The most important fact that one should keep in mind is that one should have enough clothes to tackle the cold weather in the Himalayas.

In a supported trek, heavy items are carried by porters or yaks and personal belongings that you may need for the day like money, water bottle, rain gear, camera, sun cream and toilet paper etc. should be carried by yourself. So you are briefed to pack items in two different bags.

We will supply complimentary water and windproof duffel bag which you can use on the trek and is carried by porter/s. The duffel bag is yours to keep after the trek. You can leave your bag with your non-trek items at the hotel in Kathmandu and collect them after the trek.

General
  • For seasons Sleeping bag (Optional/we can provide one if you need it but is to be returned after the trek)
  • Duffel or Rucksack bag or suitcase (We will provide one complimentary ACE duffel bag for you to keep.)

Daypack
  • Down Jacket (Optional/we can provide if you need one but is to be returned after the trek)

Upper Body - Head / Ears / Eyes
  • Shade hat or baseball cap - some people drape a bandana down the back of their head and then put a baseball cap on to hold it is placed. This can be a flexible alternative while keeping the sun off your ears and neck.
  • Warm wool or synthetic hat that covers your ears.
  • Balaclava - lightweight, thinner variety.
  • Glacier glasses-100% UV protection with side shields and a hard-sided storage case (i.e. Julbo or Cebe). This is to protect your eyes from the stronger rays of the sun due to the thinner atmosphere which can cause a painful condition known as snow blindness. Regular sunglasses are not sufficient. If you wear prescription glasses, speak to your doctor about prescription glacier glasses, perhaps with transitional lenses.
  • Headlamp - Black Diamond and Petzl both make several good ones. Make sure to bring extra batteries and that they are lithium batteries so that they will last in the colder temperatures. These are indispensable for getting around at night, reading, etc. so, don't go cheap here.
  • Some people like ear-muffs; These are optional; a good hat, balaclava, and hooded jacket should really be sufficient, but this is a personal choice for some people (optional).
  • A neck warmer is another piece of gear for extra warmth if you feel you will need it (optional).

Hand
  •     1 pair liner gloves, thin wool or synthetic, useful alone on mild days or as a layer inside other gloves/mitts for additional warmth.
  •     1 pair warm gloves (heavier fleece or wool).
  •     1 pair shell gloves or mitts; Gore-Tex is preferred for keeping hands dry.

Instant hand warmers are always nice in a pinch, but really shouldn't be necessary on the trek. Bringing appropriate hand protection as recommended above, should be sufficient (optional).

Core Body
  • T-shirts (2).
  • Light and expedition weight thermal tops.
  • Fleece jacket or pullover.
  • Fleece Wind-Stopper jacket (optional).
  • Waterproof (preferably breathable fabric) shell jacket.

Lower Body – Legs
  • 2 pairs nylon hiking shorts - Quick drying type, not cotton!
  • Underwear, stay away from cotton (4).
  • 2 pairs lightweight long underwear - Capilene or other synthetic.
  • 1 pair soft shell pants - synthetic, full zip from top and bottom preferable.
  • 2 pairs trekking pants, preferably that zip on/off at the knees so they double as shorts.
  • 1 pair hard shell pants. Waterproof/breathable, Gore-Tex or equivalent is best. Should zip from the top and bottom - this makes it easier to put on over boots without getting undressed should the weather change once you are underway for the day.
  • 1 pair cotton pants (loose jeans/khakis).
 All clothing should be kept dry using waterproof stuff sacks or large puncture resistant plastic bags.

Feet
  • 4 pairs of liner socks, synthetic or Capilene.
  • 3 pairs heavyweight socks to be worn over liner socks.
  • 1 pair lightweight socks, a good option for the lower / warmer parts of the trail.
  • 1 pair light to medium weight waterproof hiking/trekking boots. Ensure a good fit with layered socks and you have worn than before to get used to it (otherwise you will get lots of blisters).
  • 1 pair light trekking shoes or sneakers. Good for around the camp/lodges and in Kathmandu.

  • Immodium or Pepto Bismol capsules for upset stomach or diarrhea.
  • Diamox (commonly prescribed as Acetazolamide) 125 or 250mg tablets for altitude sickness. Please discuss with us before starting to take this medicine.
  • 1 small personal sized first-aid kit with blister treatments such as moleskin, band-aids, some waterproof tape, anti-infection ointments, etc. Your guides will have more extensive medical gear, but you should have the basics for general use.

Miscellaneous, but Important!
  • Passport and extra passport photos (4 copies).
  • Airline ticket (Please make a copy and leave on at our office in KTM just in case if you need to change the date of your).
  • Durable wallet/pouch for travel documents, money & passport.
  • Lip balm. At least SPF 20, 2 sticks. A string taped to the stick is helpful, to hang around your neck and some are now being sold with a cord already attached. Handy as it avoids you from having to stop and look for it.
  • Sunscreen. SPF 40 is recommended and should be relatively new since it loses its' effectiveness over time.
  • Pocket knife or small Swiss Army type.

  • Toiletry kit. Be sure to include toilet paper stored in a plastic bag, hand wipes, and liquid hand sanitizer, towel, soap, etc.

Use your experience and the listed features to find the best gear for you. Some of the above types of equipment can be easily found in stores in Kathmandu for cheaper prices.

Please Note: Tight fitting, figure-hugging clothing, such as those made with Lycra can often be offensive to locals, especially to women. If you find these items comfortable as a base layer, please pack something to wear on top of them.
