What to expect during the Everest base camp budget trek 14 days?
The Everest base camp budget trek is made with certain limitations that allow us to adjust the price. We use the simplest accommodation in Kathmandu and during trekking. Three meals a day will be given at the time of the trek. In Kathmandu, the Everest base camp budget trek package involves all breakfast and welcome/farewell dinner (as per the provided itinerary).
The trekking experience is the same. You will walk past picturesque Sherpa villages. Get to meet them and see their lifestyle closely. You'll be following the same mainstream trail to Everest base camp (5,364 m). Therefore, all the views, interactions, and experiences are intact. Visit ancient monasteries like Tengboche (3,870 m) and Pangboche (3,985 m) while trekking.
Our acclimatization hike to Hotel Everest View (3,962 m) in Namche Bazaar (3,400 m) and NangkarTshang Peak (5,100 m) in Dingboche (4,410 m) lets you witness breathtaking mountain panorama. The trail unfolds diverse landscapes. You will witness gorgeous sunrises and sunsets throughout the trek.
While snow-capped mountains like Everest (8,849 m), Ama Dablam (6,12 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Cho Oyu (8,188 m), Nuptse (7,861 m), Thamserku (6,608 m), Pumori (7,161 m), Cholatse (6,440 m), Chamlang (7,319 m), and numerous others dominate the skyline along the Everest base camp trail. Whereas the flora, vegetation, wildlife, rivers, gorges, valleys, and glaciers decorate the ground.
Everest base camp budget trek itinerary brief
The Everest base camp budget trek in Nepal kicks off with an amazing flight to Lukla airport at 2,840 meters. We’ll walk down to Phakding village (2,610 m) on the same day to spend the night. It is a couple of hundred meters walk through lush forested paths and small villages, crossing a few bridges on the way.
From Phakding, the next destination is the very famous Namche Bazaar (3,440 m). The biggest Sherpa town in the Everest region. The trail from Phakding to Namche Bazaar goes through dense forests of rhododendron and magnolia. You will be crossing suspension bridges several times on the Dudh Koshi river back and forth while passing by small settlements on the way.
We have an acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar. Given the bustle of the village, you will have a great time in Namche Bazaar. We go on hiking to Hotel Everest View and explore the museums. The trail then descends to Phunki Tenga and follows an uphill climb to Tengboche village (3,870 m). In this village, the biggest monastery in the Everest region is situated.
Further, the trail descends through Deboche (3820 m) and Pangboche (3,985 m) villages. From Pangboche, we walk to Dingboche village (4,410 m) and take our second acclimatization day here. Our next point is Lobuche village (4,940 m), which we reach by navigating the Dughla pass.
Further, trekking along the Khumbu glacier moraine, we trek to Gorak Shep (5,164 m) and finally make it to Everest base camp. We spend the night in Gorak Shep instead of EBC and hike to Kala Patthar (5,644 m) early in the morning before descending back to Lukla.
The Everest base camp budget trek is a moderate to difficult trek. In terms of terrain, it begins with a gentle pace and progresses to steep, rocky slopes as the days pass by. You mostly trek through lush forests in the first few days of your walk and then follow uneven foothills. The trail above Dingboche village goes through glaciers and moraines.
Because it is a budget trek, you get very limited facilities in the mountains. You have to adjust and endure the limitations. Any additional service out of bed and breakfast, such as charging your phone, wifi, hot shower, etc, may cost you extra money that you have to bear by yourself. So, do carry some Nepali cash with you.
You might be wondering, can a new trekker do Everest base camp budget trekking?
And the answer is yes. You can participate in our Everest base camp budget trek program, but you have to be well-prepared and packed. You have to walk 5 to 6 hours a day, so fitness matters a lot. Similarly, you have to be in good health. These are the non-negotiables.
Altitude sickness & trek preparation
Even though it is a budget trek, we have not removed acclimatization days from our Everest base camp budget trek itinerary. We have two rest days and side hikes that let the trekkers adjust to the elevation. We do not rush during the trek and take our time to enjoy the journey & adapt to the environment.
Our professional guide will take care of you in case you see symptoms of altitude sickness. You do not have to worry about anything while trekking with our team. Just be prepared for all the adventures and emotions you will feel. And trust us, it'll be a lot.
