Everest is without a doubt the most famous mountain in the world and getting the opportunity to even see it is a magical experience.

From Lukla airport the trek heads northward up the Khumbu Valley and passes through countless amazing Sherpa villages as you make your way from forested valleys up onto alpine tundra. 

Everest Base Camp sits at over 5,300m, and although it's a popular trek it shouldn't be underestimated. That said, we have designed our itinerary to maximise your chances of success with adequate acclimatisation opportunities and a superb team to support you. 

As well as enjoying the trek of a lifetime, we've also built some time into the itinerary for you to be able to enjoy the bustling capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. 



Days 0 & 1 are spent leaving your home country and arriving in Kathmandu. Upon our arrival we are transported to our high spec hotel accommodation.

Day 2 is spent finalising bits and bobs, before driving 4 hours to the village of Ramechaap. 

Day 3 will see us take an internal flight to the famous mountain airport of Lukla. We will then trek for a few hours to the village of Phakding (2,650m). 

On Day 4 we gain much more height and head to the Sherpa capital of the Khumbu region, Namche Bazaar (3,440m). 

Day 5 is also spent at Namche acclimatising. Acclimatisation days usually include a trek of 3-4 hours too.

Day 6 and 7  are 5-6 hour trek days as we head for Dingboche (4,360m). We spend Day 8 acclimatising once more and will take a trek up to 5000m. 

Day 9 sees us trek to the village of Lobuche (4910m)

On Day 10 on we head to the infamous Everest Base Camp from Lobuche. Energy levels pending, you can then head up to Kala Pattar and watch the sun set against Everest. 

Day 11  It's time to return down the trail and we walk 19km to Pangboche Day 12 we have a day back down to Namche Bazaar

 and on Day 13  we make it back to Lukla for a celebratory meal with our trekking team.

All being well we will fly out of Lukla on Day 14 and then drive back to Kathmandu from Ramechaap. The afternoon can be spent in Kathmandu. We will enjoy a celebratory meal on this evening. Day 15 offers another chance to explore Kathmandu and we will go on a half day sight seeing tour also.  time.

Everest Base Camp Expedition


What about Altitude Sickness?

Having concerns about AMS is very natural and it is unfortunately unpredictable. Even the experienced could struggle to get over 5,000m if they get ill. We have however designed our itinerary to help us best acclimatise. The fitter you are, the less exhausted you'll get, which in turn has an impact on bringing on symptoms of AMS. These points combined with walking slowly, drinking lots and eating well all give you the best possible chance.

How fit do I really need to be and what skills do I require?

The fitter you are the more you will enjoy it, and the more chance you'll have of getting to base camp. Being able to complete 2-3 days of big hill walks in the UK is a good gauge that you're ready. You can join us for a 2 days of Trekking Training in the Lake District (Guiding Only) to help build this fitness.


You'll find some advice, as well as a free downloadable 12 week training plan on our Fitness Training page.

Matt is also a qualified Personal Trainer so if you want some formal training just get in touch with us via LMG Personal Training

What Technical Kit do I require?

There is no technical kit required for this trip. All you need is a good sleeping bag but this can also be hired in Nepal. 

What about the Food and Accommodation?

The food in Nepal is fab. Expect a lot of rice, noodles and vegetables, but you can often get pasta, chips and spring rolls too. If you have specific allergies or dietary requirements it may be worth researching what's on offer before committing. Eating well throughout is key to success on such an expedition. Our accommodation whilst on the trek will be teahouses. 

Should you need to leave the expedition early, any additional accommodation costs will need to be covered by you (or depending on the circumstance, your insurance)

Do I need any vaccinations?

Possibly! Vaccinations can be costly too and should be taken into consideration when budgeting for your trip. The best thing to do is to approach your Travel Nurse for information. 

Do I require Travel Insurance?

Most certainly. Travelling, let alone adventure travel, can throw up all sorts of incidents or circumstances that need to be covered by insurance otherwise you could face a very hefty bill. As a minimum your insurance must cover the dates of the trip, the altitude you are trekking to and helicopter evacuation. Our recommendation for travel insurance is Campbell Irvine

What is a non-Emergency Helicopter Flight mentioned in the Exclusions?

This expedition relies on an internal plane flight to start the trek, and to return back to Kathmandu. Delays can occur, and in order to make progress onto the trek, or in order to get you back to your international flight, we can consider the use of a helicopter (if the weather permits). This cost is not covered by LMG Treks & Expeditions, and you could expect to pay anywhere between £300-£600 per flight depending on the group size. 

Do your trips have a minimum required number of participants to run?

Our scheduled trips do. Our Everest Base Camp trip requires 7 people to ensure it is guaranteed to run. We will let you know when it is guaranteed to run and from this point you can book flights. 

Do you organise bespoke trips?

Of course, just get in touch with your group size and we'll offer you a quote.

Why should I trek with LMG Treks & Expeditions?

For over a decade we've provided fun, educational and safe adventures in the UK through Lakeland Mountain Guides. We've taken our experience and academic education and created a company that has the sole aim of providing amazing, personal adventures abroad. Yes, we're just a small company, but this has two big benefits for you. Firstly, we really appreciate each and every booking we get, and you are not one in a few thousand. Secondly. we're able to, and want to, put the time into helping you get mentally and physically prepared for your adventure. 

We pride ourselves on being compliant to UK Package travel regulation laws, diligent with safety, and environmentally sensitive. What's more is we create our trips with the customer experience, safety and chances of success at the very fore of our minds. We will often add in extra days for acclimatisation or contingency to achieve these three major factors, even if it makes our trips a bit more expensive. 

How do we justify the price of our trips?

There's no doubt about it, if you went online you'd likely find a cheaper alternative, but you can't be certain you're buying a like for like product. We get it, these trips aren't cheap, but there are numerous reasons why the price amounts to what it does. Please click here to read deeper into the reasons why

Are you environmentally responsible?

As a company, although small, we will operate responsibly, giving back where we can. One of our best partnerships is that with Trees4Travel. We will plant 2 trees on the behalf of every booking we get, and we will plant enough trees to offset the travel of our trek manager too. Click here to see our Responsible Tourism Policy

We discourage the use of single use plastics on expedition where possible, and are continually thinking of ways to become even kinder to the planet we operate in.
