Everest Base Camp Trek by Jeep Drive will not only make your travel more pleasant but also enable you to make some financial savings. You will encounter varied topographies, civilizations, and ways of life as you continue your journey from Kathmandu to Thamdanda. Compared to a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the journey by road benefits your body by strengthening its resistance against altitude sickness. Along with the stunning views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu, and other neighboring peaks of the Solukhumbu Region, there are even more beauties that are added to the modern Everest Base Camp Trek without Lukla Flight Itinerary.

Your 16 days Everest Base Camp Trek by Road will start from Kathmandu via a varied and stunning landscape. Your main trek will begin from Thamdanda and ascend to Surke through Paiya. You will proceed past Lukla and via Chheplung and Nurning on your way to Phakding. You will pass via Monjo, Jorsale, and Larja Dobhan on your route to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest. You may see the oldest Tengboche Monastery by hiking from Namche to Tengboche. You will reach Dingboche by passing via picturesque towns like Pangboche and Shomare following Imja Khola. You will go via the towns of Dusa, Thokla, and Lobuche as you travel from Dingboche to Gorakshep. Before descending to Pheriche, you will ascend from Gorakshep to the Everest Base Camp and Kala Pathar. To reach Namche, Chaurikharka, and eventually Thamdanda, the route descends from Pheriche.

What You Can Expect From Everest Base Camp Trek by Road Package?

  • You will see stunning scenery, Sunkoshi River, Seti Devi Temple, Rhododendron forests, and lovely towns like Salleri, Phaplu, Taksindu, Kharikhola, and Bupsa as you travel from Kathmandu to Thamdanda.
  • Mountain views including Mount Everest, Mount Amadablam, and Mount Cho Oyu will be visible to you during your trek to Everest Base Camp by road. The excursions will also take you through rhododendron and juniper forests, and follow the lovely Dudhkoshi River.
  • In the Khumbu region, which is home to the well-known Sherpa people, you will appreciate the sight of the Sherpa lifestyle. During this journey, one may get an insight into Sherpa culture and experience their hospitality. When spending an acclimatization day in Namche, it is worthwhile to visit the Sherpa Museum.
  • During the Everest Base Camp Trek by road, you will walk on slope paths, level routes, and trails with curves. A trail lined with stones that travels beside the Khumbu glacier will take you in the direction of the base camp of Mount Everest. Because the path is not very challenging, anyone with average physical fitness may complete the trek.
  • During the trek, you will stay in modest accommodations at local tea houses. A simple bed and blankets will be given to you. After Namche Bazar, especially, you shouldn't anticipate having flowing water and a hot shower every night. You are required to use public restrooms for a few nights. We also advise you to pack toiletries for the excursion.
  • You won't have any trouble finding mineral water on the journey because it is available almost everywhere. The tea houses along the Everest base camp trekking by road will provide you with a good meal. The tea houses along the route provide a variety of foods, including bread, rice, soup, noodles, veggies, and pasta.
  • A first aid kit with simple medications will be carried by the trekking guide. However, you should bring your own medication if it is a distinct type. In an emergency, you will be transported to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. As a result, a helicopter evacuation must be covered by your travel insurance plan.
  • Since the road trip to Everest Base Camp takes place at a high altitude, one should be cautious of AMS. If you experience any AMS symptoms, pay attention to your body's signals and adhere to your guide's instructions. Some of the symptoms of AMS include nausea, vomiting, disorientation, and shortness of breath.

Is Everest Base Camp Trek by Road Suitable for You?

  • The Everest Base Camp Trek by Road is the perfect option for you if you want to see the stunning scenery, mountains, waterfalls, and dense vegetation of the Khumbu region without having to take a flight to Lukla.
  • Everest Base Camp trekking is not a simple endeavor, but practically everyone who is comfortable carrying some weight while hiking can accept the challenge if they begin planning for the adventure well in advance of the event.
  • The trek to Everest Base Camp will be gratifying and may end up being the finest experience of your life if you are not experiencing any severe respiratory or heart-related conditions and you are prepared for it.
  • Younger people obviously require less preparation than older ones since they are less likely to experience heart disease or high blood pressure, but this does not disqualify older individuals who have trained their entire life and have great stamina from participating in Everest Base Camp Trekking.

How to Get Prepared For the Everest Base Camp Trekking without Lukla Flight?

You must be both physically and mentally strong if you are planning to trek to Everest base camp by road. If you assume a person's mental state won't matter when trekking through very steep ascents in the Khumbu region, you are seriously mistaken. Without a strong mental attitude, trekkers may give up on the difficult pathways going to the base camp before they have even reached the halfway point of the journey. Hiking up through perilous mountainous terrains undoubtedly places a great deal of physical strain on one's body.

It will be best to be informed that you will stroll up and down on rough terrain for 12 days while carrying your bag pack, weighing at least 6 kg, on average for 5 to 6 hours every day. You will need to begin improving your strength and endurance a few months early. Plan your workouts for five to six days a week, and at least once a week, climb a hill carrying a bag packed with 6 to 12 kg. Your legs and muscles get better the more hill training you accomplish. Hill Training is crucial because your lungs can't provide your muscles with enough oxygen at higher altitudes due to a lack of oxygen. Therefore, begin cardiovascular training, such as jogging and swimming, along with other workouts, if you want to successfully reach the Everest Base Camp by jeep and avoid upsetting fellow trekkers.

A common excuse given by people for not doing the Everest Base Camp trek by road is that they are too old. There is no set age restriction for those who are qualified to trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC) via road. There shouldn't be any difficulties for them on the journey if they are physically well enough to walk for hours. For your kind information, it has been reported that a 76-year-old and a 13-year-old have already succeeded in reaching the peak of Mt. Everest.

With several government offices, Internet cafés, ATMs, restaurants, stores, and other amenities, it serves as the main hub for the Khumbu Region. Health professionals advise that during rest days, you should move about and be active rather than sitting still. Therefore, for the day, you can ascend to Thamo or Khunde. You can ascend to Khumjung village from Syangbuche's Everest View Hotel.

This trail crosses two trail intersections, one coming from Gokyo Lake and the other from Khumjung. The Himalaya Thar and Himalaya Monals are best viewed from here as the route ascends through the forest.

As a massive route ascends to the ancient Buddhist Chorten and enters the lovely gate to enter Pangboche town, the view of the Ama Dablam can be observed from a much closer distance. To reach the picturesque community of Somare, it will take a continuous 3 hours of walking along the tree line to small shrubs planted. From Somare, it takes two to three hours to reach Dingboche. The journey to Dingboche is completed while taking in the beautiful scenery.

Going up to Chhukung Ri is another alternative, from which you can see peaks like Island Peak, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Tawoche Peak, and others. For a beautiful view of the Chhukung valley, which has Kangtega, Ama Dablam, Taboche, Lobuche east, and several more magnificent peaks, you may also hike to Nagarjuna.

Reaching the lovely community of Thokla, which is located right at the edge of the Khumbu Glacier, requires a three-hour delightful trek with breathtaking mountain views. Then, for the next 45 minutes, the path climbs steeply to the Thokla Pass, where you can view several monuments honoring climbers who perished during the trip.

The most significant day of your Everest Base Camp Trek by Road is today since you will arrive at Everest Base Camp. The journey starts in the morning from Lobuche and takes three hours across the Khumbu Glacier to reach Gorakshep. After checking in at Gorakshep's guest house and leaving all of your belongings there, you will walk to Everest Base Camp. It will take around 2 to 3 hours to reach Base Camp from Gorakshep. While visiting EBC, it is suggested that you pack enough water, use a flashlight, wear warm clothing, and carry additional equipment. There are a lot of expedition groups in the Everest Base Camp during the spring hiking season. While exploring the Khumbu Glacier and taking in the breathtaking mountain scenery around you, it is recommended to observe the Khumbu Icefall.

Pumari (7,145m), Lingtren (6,695m), Khumbutse (6,623m), Changtse (7,550m), and Nuptse (7,879m). The Kala Patthar is quite challenging to ascend. To be rewarded with a once-in-a-lifetime experience and incredible natural beauty, it will take two hours of arduous ascent. The best vantage point to observe Mount Everest at its closest range is from Kala Patthar.

Along the way, you will come across a number of streams, dense forests, exotic animals, stunning scenery, and so on.

It will take around 6 to 7 hours to get from Namche Bazaar to Chaurikharka, your final destination for the day. It will be a long trek, as the majority of the route descends beside the Dudhkoshi River through a tropical forest and Sherpa hamlet. On your return trip to Chaurikharka, you will see the same countryside and mountain views once more. From the opposing directions, your perspective will be different. To ultimately get to Chaurikharka, you must once again pass through picturesque towns like Larja Dobjan, Monjo, Bengkar, Ghat, and Chheplung. After entering the teahouse in Chaurikharka, you may travel to Lukla, which is 20 minutes away, if you are interested in visiting the world's most perilous airport.

    Everest Base Camp Trek by Road Altitude Sickness and Remedies

    Altitude sickness can occur when the body is unable to adjust to the low oxygen levels and high air pressure in high-altitude Mountains. Many hikers and mountain climbers get acute mountain sickness when the oxygen level starts to plummet at an altitude of 3000 meters. Numerous symptoms, including headaches, exhaustion, nausea, shortness of breath, wooziness, lack of sleep or trouble falling asleep, loss of appetite, and others, are associated with acute mountain sickness. Consider the following advice to prevent altitude sickness before heading to Everest Base Camp Trek by Road:

    • Keep yourself hydrated when hiking and stay away from alcohol because it dehydrates you.
    • Maintain a healthy diet throughout the trip.
    • Diamox, the most effective medicine for altitude sickness, should be brought along on the hike.
    • Don't hurry when hiking to a high altitude. You ought to walk carefully and slowly.
    • Before hiking at an elevation of more than 3,000 meters, acclimate appropriately.
    • If your body reveals any symptoms of altitude sickness, you must either stop immediately or lower some elevation.
    • Keeping yourself clean may also help you avoid altitude sickness.

    Everest Base Camp Trek by Road Difficulty Level

    If you have never trekked before, especially in the Himalayas, the EBC Trek through the road may be difficult for you because you'll be taking risky, hazardous routes. You must hike for at least 5 to 6 hours each day on this excursion. The steep, tough terrain has many ups and downs. You need to be in excellent physical and mental shape for this expedition. Altitude sickness is a significant concern on every Nepal hiking trip. Trekkers are more prone to encounter altitude sickness since the routes go through locations that are more than 4000 meters above sea level.

    You will go over difficult, inaccessible, steep, and harsh terrain on the road-based EBC trekking paths. You must overcome these obstacles if you want to build your abdominal muscles. Along the route, the hikers will face a range of difficulties, including rocky terrain, meadows, deep valleys, and roadways covered in rocks. Additionally, they will come across small cliffs and other dangerous terrains. These long walks will be difficult for most hikers. Someone who has never hiked in these conditions would find it difficult to cover such a large distance.

      Amazing Everest Base Camp Jeep Trek with Best Trek Company

      I've only recently started hiking, but the Everest Base Camp Jeep Trek has made me fall in love with it. It provided me with a wealth of knowledge about the natural world, the lives and cultures of the locals, and myself. My guide was highly attentive, helpful, and adjustable when it came to his customers' needs, so communication with him was easy and pleasurable. I immediately felt safe and at ease after meeting Arjun, the founder of Green Valley Nepal. Every time I had a question, he was there to answer it. Excellent customer service and communication, and I wholeheartedly endorse them!

      Everest Base Camp Trek by Road - Green Valley Treks Team

      It was wonderful working with Green Valley Nepal Treks on the Everest Base Camp Trek by Road. From the moment we made our travel arrangements, Arjun was easy to contact. He set himself up for success by meeting with us and reviewing the plan and tools before we departed. Gopal, our tour guide, made the experience enjoyable and instructive. He had extensive mountaineering and guiding knowledge. He provided us with a sense of comfort, safety, and well-being. Also enjoyable to hike with was our porter. Because there were only two of us in our group, we were thrilled to be able to move at our own speed.

    FAQs
    • We promise to keep all hikers happy, safe, and secure. Our teams are well-trained in first aid, and they are equipped with all the gear, supplies, and first aid kits required. Oximeters are also used to track altitude sickness symptoms. In an emergency, we will fly you back from this great height using a helicopter.

    • Yes. Sagarmatha National Park permit and Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality permit are necessary. You may rely on Green Valley Nepal Treks to assist you with all the documentation required to obtain these permits.

    • Travel insurance is required for this trip. Prior to the start of the trip, each hiker is required to give Green Valley Nepal Treks a copy of their certificate of complete travel insurance coverage. The insurance must cover all costs associated with medical and emergency evacuation, as well as helicopter rescue operations up to a height of 6000 meters.

    • Although there is no restriction on age, we do not advise bringing young children up high. The health of a youngster might be severely affected. But you also need to be in good physical shape and be optimistic. A delicate medical condition, such as heart or lung problems, is another condition for which we do not advise this trek.

    • We advise you to limit the weight of your trek luggage to no more than 15 kilograms. A maximum of 30 kilograms can be carried by each porter. We assign 1 porter to transport 2 duffel bags for clients. Please be aware that for the flight to Lukla, you are only permitted 15 kg of luggage, including your handbag. You will be charged extra for overage luggage.

    • Yes, majority of tea houses will charge a nominal fee for internet access. Although the WI-FI service may not be extremely quick, you can check for urgent messages or updates that are relevant to your job.

    • On the trails, bottled water is widely and cheaply accessible, however, certain trek areas do not allow plastic bottles. Therefore, we advise you to take a water bottle that you may fill with boiling or filtered water. Additionally, we urge you to use water purification pills or drops, which you may either bring from your home country or purchase in Kathmandu.

    • Yes, you can eat vegetarian cuisine with no issues as most lodges provide vegetarian dishes. To prevent food poisoning, we constantly advise our clients to consume vegetarian meals. Eating large, meat-based meals at a high altitude is not very healthy.

    • In general, credit cards are not widely accepted in Nepal, hence their utility is minimal. In Kathmandu, there are ATMs where you may withdraw rupees at a favorable exchange rate. In addition to whatever fees your bank may impose, Kathmandu's ATMs typically impose a $5 USD service charge. These ATMs also commonly have a restriction of 25,000 rupees per day (approximately $215 USD).

    • Any number can participate in the Everest Base Camp Trek. We at Green Valley Nepal Treks are prepared to lead this journey whether there are one hiker or a hundred. Four persons who can share the expense of the Jeep from Kathmandu to the beginning location of the trip and return make up a very ideal trekking team.
