Trip Overview of Everest Base Camp Trek 7 Days

Everest Base Camp trek 7 Days Days which sounds quite strange because it normally takes around two weeks. Tourist Link Treks and Adventure came up with the idea of organizing it within seven days. This one-week journey takes you to EBC and comes back from there with a scenic helicopter flight back to Kathmandu.

Nowadays because of the busy work schedule, people have no enough time for a multi-week trekking journey thus Tourist Link Treks & Adventure started to organize this trip to fulfill your dream of exploring Everest Base Camp Trek in one week. The only difference between regular Everest Base Camp Trek and Everest Base Camp Trek 7 days are of time duration otherwise you can explore everything that regular EBC trekker experience. And another special feature of this journey is you can enjoy a bird-eye aerial view while coming back to Kathmandu which is so beautiful.
First, we fly to Lukla from Kathmandu taking small propeller aircraft. Then we trek to Everest Base Camp exploring the village and mountain along the way. We visit Everest Base Camp and climb Kalapathar 5550m from where we can see a very clear view of Mt Everest, Khumbu glacier, Mt Lhotse, Mt Nuptse, and dozens of other mountains. We take a Helicopter from Gorakshep 5160m and fly back to Kathmandu.

Everest Base camp trek-7 days complexity

The journey to the Everest Base Camp trek is for sure a challenging task that requires physical fitness and little hiking experience. If you consider doing some physical workout and cardio exercise before coming to the Everest trek it will be way easier than you think. We do it steadily taking a significant amount of acclimatization which makes it easier than you think. In short, we can say it’s challenging but not very difficult. The season of this trek is September to December, and March to May.


Itinerary

Your guide will meet you at your hotel early in the morning and drive you to the airport which takes 10 minutes. After the check-in and all airport proceeding, you will take a scenic Himalayan flight to Lukla 2840m which takes about 30 minutes. Your porter will come to greet you at the airport and help to take the baggage to the nearby hotel where the guide will explain the journey, dos-don't, and introduce you to the porter. Then the journey begins downhill towards Phakding through a stone spread trail. you pass through some nice Sherpa villages like Cheplung, Chaurikharka, and Ghat. you will meet the turquoise green Dudhkoshi river at Ghat village. you will have a launch at Thadokoshi village with the stunning views of Mt Kusumkangaro.

Your trek starts after having breakfast around 8 a.m. The trail goes along the river Dudh Koshi passing through several villages. You can see a bunch of mountains including Thamserku 6608m, Kusum kangaroo 6367m, Kwangde 6168m, Nuptse 7861m, Taboche 6367m, Cholatse 6335m, Khumbi-yulha 5761m and of course Mt Everest 8848m. The trail traverse through both sides crossing the suspension bridge. Stop at Monjo where you enter the national park where your guide will submit all your permit. Launch at Jorsalle 2740m with an amazing view of river, jungle, and waterfall. It is worth watching the donkey, trekker, and porter while stopping for launch. After crossing the high suspension bridge at Larja Dovan 2830m the trail ascends uphill through a stone spread staircase. Halfway to Namche, we reach Everest viewpoint from there we can see Mt Everest 8848m and Nuptse 7861m. After the trail goes ascending to Namche through a shady trail. It takes around 7 hours and overnight at Namche 3440m in mountain lodge aka tea house.

we start after having breakfast. The trail goes straight up for the first 20 minutes and takes a flat path that goes high above the bottom. We get the company of beautiful views most of the time. We have exhilarating views of Mt Amadablam 6856m, Everest 8848m, Lhotse 8414m, Taboche 6367m, Cholatse 6335m, Thamserku 6608m, and Khangtega 6685m. After Sanasa we head downhill to Phunki Tenga 3250m where we meet river Dudhkoshi. We stop there for launch. After launch, we walk uphill passing through many switchbacks while at the same time we can see a close-up view of Mt Khangtega 6685m also a beautiful bird-eye view towards Namche and Khumjung. The chances of seeing Himalayan Thar are high, this is a kind of wild goat. The view from Tengboche is superb you can see Mt Everest and Mt Amadablam as its backdrop. Tengboche is one of the centuries-old historic monasteries from the Everest region so it's sacred and mystic. You can visit the monastery where they have to worship rituals every evening and morning. The total duration of the walk is 6 hours and overnight at the mountain lodge.

We start trekking after having breakfast as usual in the early morning. The trail goes uphill to Somare 4010m where we can see Yak pastureland and yak herder shelter. the trail goes gradually uphill. You can see a close-up view of Mt Amadablam 6856m just in front of you. The next village you pass through is Pheriche 4240m where we stop for Launch, from there vegetation gets sparse. You walk surrounded by 360 views of eye-catching mountains including Mt Amadablam, Lhotse. We can see a lot of Yaks and Yak herder shelters on the way. Pheriche was a farming village formerly but now it's a tea house town though people do farming during summer which is the offseason in terms of tourism. Overnight at mountain lodge. It takes around 6 hours to reach Thokla 4410m.

On this consecutive day, we walk to Lobuche 4900m filling up ourselves with energizing breakfast. The journey starts walking uphill to cross Thokla-La pass 4830m hill in the very beginning then it traverses through the bank of Khumbu glacier via moraine route. A lot of memorials are commemorated in honor of great climbers and trekkers who lost their lives here in this region. We can see some plaques for some of the legendary climbers. we can see some more beautiful mountain like Khumbutse 6665m, Lingtren 6749m, Chumbu 6859m, Lobuche peak 6119m. The duration of the walk will be 3.5 hours. Overnight at mountain lodge.

We begin our journey early in the morning after having breakfast. The trail goes through the gully formed by a glacier. We climb a small pass called Lobuche pass and the trail goes above died glacier full of loose rock and gravel. You should listen to your body and take your own pace at this altitude because as we go higher and higher oxygen levels go lower and lower. We have the company of spectacular Himalayan panorama during the hike so even if you stop you have always rejuvenating views. After reaching Gorakshep we take some rest and have some launch and go visiting Everest base camp 5365m. We walk through the bottom edge of the mountain by the side of the glacier. Everest base camp is located in the Khumbu glacier so it's full of rock ice, gravel, and big chunk of ice. We have Mt Pumo Ri 7165m standing high and tall just above the forehead. We walk back to Gorakshep after spending some time at base camp.

Early morning before sunrise we climb to Kalapathar 5550m to see a clear close-up view of Mt Everest. Kalapathar 5550m is a hill which means black rock lies in the middle of Khumbu Everest Himalaya. From the top of Kalapathar, we can see birds' eyes 360 views of Everest Khumbu valley, Khumbu icefall, and a bunch of towering mountains. Mt Everest seen from base camp is truly ugly so for a detailed and close-up view of Mt Everest we have to climb Kalapathar. It takes 3-4 hours back and forth in total. After coming from Kalapathar we take breakfast and get ready for the chopper ride back to Kathmandu. It takes 1.5 hours to reach Kathmandu from there by helicopter. The aerial view of the countryside is mind-blowing so don't hesitate to look down while taking a helicopter.
