Trip Overview

Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek is an adventure of a lifetime; it’s more than just a trek, it is the journey above the clouds. The EBC lies in the core of Khumbu Valley. Khumbu Valley itself is a great tourist destination for tourists around the globe. EBC is the stunning terminus for those who wish to see the spectacular view of the entire Mount Everest just so near to them. Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world with an elevation of 8,848m. Mount Everest was named after Sir George Everest, and it is also called Sagarmatha popularly in Nepal. It was Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay who first reached the summit in 1953. They had chosen the western part through the Khumbu Icefall. You will be trekking with all of these historical moments in your mind and magnificent views all over you. Just remember one thing, it’s a dream come true for a trekker, EBC trek is a perfect voyage for a lifetime.

Gokyo Lakes are a group of high-altitude freshwater lakes located in the Sagarmatha National Park of Nepal, at the foot of Mt. Cho Oyu. The largest of the lakes, Gokyo Cho, is considered sacred by the local people and is used for religious ceremonies. One of the highlights of the trek is reaching Gokyo Ri, a peak near the Gokyo Lakes, which offers an incredible panoramic view of Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu, and other peaks.

The EBC and Gokyo Lakes trek is a popular trekking route in Nepal that takes visitors through the beautiful landscapes and traditional Sherpa villages of the region, with stunning views of Mount Everest and other Himalayan peaks. The trail begins from Lukla (2,828m), Lukla is a busy town located in the Khumbu region. Khumbu region is the homeland of the mighty Sherpa and the mysterious Yeti. Peaks like Everest (8848.86m), Ama Dablam (6,812m), Lhotse (8516m), Pumori (7,161m), Nuptse (7,855m), and other high peaks are standing tall to welcome you to this region. This is by far the best place in the world for those who adore nature and breathtaking gifts from nature. The EBC trek follows the trail along with the Dudh Koshi River elevating along with the forest of Rhododendron. On the way, you can likely see several endangered species like Blue Sheep and Musk Deer. This region is home to snow leopards, but most of the time they are not nearby. Different species of birds like Himalayan Pheasant, Danphe, and Munal will be seen during this journey. Continuing the journey, we will reach Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar (3500m) is the stop point for trips to Everest and other peaks in this zone. This small town is above the altitude sickness threshold therefore most trekkers prefer to spend at least two nights acclimatizing. Along the way, trekkers also cross the Cho La Pass, which offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. After reaching the EBC, we then climb Kalapatthar, to explore the panoramic views of Mt. Everest and Other Himalayas. It’s the best feeling to feel Mount Everest right in front of your eyes, the sensation is simply magnificent.

    Our first co-operation was in 2013 in Pakistan with Arnold Coster expeditions and Sevensummittreks towards the Gasherbrum. After that, we continued to work together on expeditions towards Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Manaslu (winter), and AmaDablam. For me, SST is a very professional company with a lot of experience and knowledge. We have full confidence in their capabilities and appreciate their flexibility. I would like to thank them for all those years of cooperation and I look forwards to new adventures in Nepal and Pakistan.

    I have been on many expeditions in Nepal over the years, most of them I organized with friends and used Seven Summit Treks only for their base camp services with great service! This year none of my friends were available to climb in Nepal in the Autumn season so I contacted SST and decided to sign up for the Mera Peak and Baruntse expedition. SST organized everything and provide me with a personal climbing Sherpa for the entire trip. Throughout the entire trip, everything was taken care of by SST, including lodging, tea houses, and meals. At Baruntse base camp I had a nice private tent and the cook and kitchen staff always had smiles and cooked great meals. My Sherpa (Jangbu) was great and we became close friends and climbing partners. Jangbu was always there with a smile, a very strong climber, always wanting to help in any way he could. There was plenty of time to decide how and when we were going to make a summit push based on the weather. We had fantastic summit days on both peaks and finished the trip crossing the Amphu Labste pass into the Khumbu Valley staying each night in nice lodges with all meals included. I would highly recommend using SST for any expedition that you want to go on. Thank you Seven Summit Treks for a great trip and your attention to detail!!

    My wife and I had an amazing experience with Seven Summits for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The company was extremely hospitable with a welcome dinner on day 1, including an introduction to our guide. Speaking of our guide, Phurkitar, he was simply brilliant. During the trek, he was very patient as both of us went through physical and emotional tiredness, and he ensured we reached EBC without any major issues. In addition, he helped cater to my vegan and my wife's vegetarian diets throughout the trek. Cannot compliment Phurkitar enough for all his efforts.

    Would readily book with Seven Summits again.

    These guys are the real deal. Incredibly professional and helpful; I genuinely couldn’t imagine hiking to base camp any other way.

    Seven summits planned everything, lodging, flights, and meals. All I had to do was show up and hike. My bag got lost on the way into Lukla (the airlines' fault not Seven Summits) but these guys (Sherpa Chhepal) organized a personal porter to bring my pack up to us since we’d already started our trek.

    Not only did Chhepal square away a porter but he did even more digging and got my bag on a helicopter instead. I had it first thing in the morning; it was incredible. When I was heading back to Kathmandu once we were finished, I realized I had time to catch an earlier flight if I could get out of Lukla on time. Well our flight was delayed but Seven Summits squoze me on a helicopter, got me to KTM, and I started making my journey home an entire day early because of that.

    Besides being super knowledgeable, helpful, A+ customer service, and everything else, these guys were just cool to hang out with. Made a lot of friends and would recommend Seven Summits to anyone in my circle.
