Trek to the world's highest mountain base camp and sleep at Everest Base Camp (5,364m).  Get a glimpse into the lives of climbers while facing the tallest peak in the world and the numerous peaks surrounding your very presence by staying Overnight at Everest Base Camp with the Green Valley Nepal Treks crew.

One of the most extraordinary trekking itineraries Green Valley Nepal Treks has created for its clients is Sleep at Everest Base Camp. You have the choice to spend the night in a tent at Base Camp when the majority of trekkers are returning to Gorak Shep after reaching Base Camp to sleep for the night. You can spend the night in a tent that our team will bring to Everest Base Camp. As part of the Sleep at Base Camp on Everest Trek, we will also prepare a traditional Sherpa Dal Bhat for you to eat at Everest Base Camp.

When you reserve a Sleep at Base Camp on Everest Trek package in the spring, the peak climbing season, you may wake up in the middle of the night to the sight of climbers using just a headlamp to ascend the Ice Fall. The Everest Base Camp will be exclusively yours if you purchase the Overnight at Base Camp of Everest package during the post-monsoon season when there will only be the roar of the churning glacier below.

One of the top treks in the world, the Everest Base Camp trek is an adventure you won't soon forget. It becomes even more remarkable and one-of-a-kind when you get the chance to spend a night sleeping at Base Camp of Mount Everest. We have been able to organize tours to Sleep at Everest Base Camp every year since we were awarded the permits. Our Everest Base Camp trips currently have a 98% success record, and we are able to do this by staying three nights in the 3,440m Namche Bazaar.

Some of the most beautiful panoramas on earth may be found in the Sagarmatha National Park and the Everest Region. Beautiful vistas of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku, to name a few, will be one of your experiences. Before sleeping at Base Camp on Everest Trek, you will also visit Sherpa communities like Namche Bazaar, Pangbouche, and Dingbouche to experience the excellent hospitality on offer by these sincere people.

You cannot accomplish the sleeping at EBC trek without encountering difficulties, just as any journey has its highs and lows. It is far too difficult to hike in the Everest region since you will be traveling on some of the most difficult, slick, and dangerous paths while dealing with unfavorable weather. The least you can do is try to solve every issue or work to prevent problems from arising in the first place. It is challenging for trekkers who are unfamiliar with hiking and trekking to walk for about 6-7 hours each day at high altitudes. But when things are difficult, the strong must move forward.

It's difficult enough to walk across the tough trekking paths for such a long time in unsteady weather. And the right acclimation is essential. Getting some rest and preparing for the voyage ahead is usually best accomplished through sleep. Excellent sleep is a fantastic source of energy and activity. If your sleep is disrupted, you simply cannot continue the voyage. Similar to eating properly, getting enough sleep is essential if you wish to hike at higher altitudes in even the most unpredictable weather. Green Valley Nepal Treks has developed the Everest Base Camp Sleeping Trek as a novel trekking concept, keeping the value of sleep as the top priority for an amazing trekking experience.

Preparation for Sleep at Base Camp on Everest Trek

Preparing for a Sleep at Everest Base Camp Trek is essential to ensure a safe and enjoyable adventure in the Himalayas. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to get ready for this extraordinary journey:

Physical Fitness

  • Start a regular fitness routine at least 2-3 months before your trek. Focus on cardiovascular endurance, strength training, and flexibility exercises.
  • Incorporate uphill and downhill walking to simulate trekking conditions.

Mental Preparation

  • Mental resilience is just as important as physical fitness. Be prepared for challenging terrain, weather changes, and potential altitude-related discomfort.
  • Develop a positive mindset and determination to overcome obstacles.

Trekking Gear

  • Invest in high-quality trekking gear, including a good pair of waterproof hiking boots, a warm sleeping bag, a down jacket, trekking poles, and comfortable clothing suitable for layering.

Permits and Documentation

  • Obtain the necessary trekking permits and documentation, including a TIMS (Trekkers' Information Management System) card and a Sagarmatha National Park permit.
  • Keep multiple photocopies of your identification, passport, and permits in a waterproof pouch.

Training Hikes

  • Before your Everest Base Camp Trek, do shorter training hikes at higher altitudes to assess your body's response to reduced oxygen levels.
  • This will help you gauge your fitness and acclimatization progress.

Hydration and Nutrition

  • Stay well-hydrated throughout the trek. Carry a reusable water bottle and use water purification methods or iodine tablets.
  • Consume a balanced diet with a mix of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats to fuel your body for the trek.

Travel Insurance

Once you've returned to Gorakshep, you can begin the ascent up the Khumbu Glacier to Everest Base Camp. Finally, you will reach the base of the highest peak on earth.

    Sleep at Base Camp on Everest Trek Best Time

    The greatest times to complete the Sleep at Base Campon Everest Trek are in autumn and spring, as any hiker who is truly passionate about reaching the base camp of Mount Everest may already know. Both the amount of rain and the temperature are not as extreme as they are in the winter or some other monsoon months. Adventure lovers visit the Everest Base Camp during the spring months of March, April, and May to pitch their tents before ascending to the highest point on Earth.

    Watching a lot of other climbers provides you the chance to share your experience with them and, if you'd like to, learn from them about climbing in the future. Additionally, having a strong social presence gives you the much-needed emotional support you need to believe that you can complete this voyage.

    The autumn months of September, October, and November are another time of year when you can take part in the Everest Base Camp Overnight Trek. Early September may still have signs of the monsoon, while late November may signal the approach of winter and make it a little colder than you anticipate.

    Regardless, the optimum seasons described above would have daytime highs of 10 to 15 degrees. Even though it could drop as low as -15 degrees at night, you won't need to worry too much if you follow the right safety precautions we'll teach you and obtain some help.

    The average daily temperature at Everest Base Camp in the autumnal months of September, October, November, and December is 17°C. Hikes throughout the day are simpler due to the warmer weather. Additionally, the base camp does not experience particularly chilly nights during these months. In October and November, the average overnight temperature at EBC drops to -6°C and -12°C, respectively.

    You can sleep soundly just like in the spring with the right clothing, down jackets, and heated sleeping bags.

    Accommodations at the base camp's tented camps won't be a problem. Our trip crew will cook meals and make you feel at home with the greatest culinary personnel.

    Requirements of Travel Insurance for Sleep at Base Camp on Everest Trek

    The most crucial item you need to have with you when trekking at a high altitude is travel insurance. Trekkers who join the group for the sleep at Base Camp of Everest in the fall are required to bring a copy of the insurance certificate.

    Helicopter evacuations are the sole option when altitude sickness or other health problems are unavoidable. Therefore, all you need to schedule a helicopter is travel insurance. The cost of the helicopter and medical expenses are covered by decent travel insurance. So you may enjoy a worry-free climb on the Everest trekking path thanks to travel insurance.

    Altitude Sickness and Remedies on Sleep at Base Camp on Everest Trek

    The Sleep at Base Camp of Mount Everest may cause you to experience some altitude sickness symptoms, such as headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, shortness of breath, etc. Trekkers can avoid these symptoms by taking over-the-counter medications like paracetamol. However, for other people, the body responds to the altitude differently, and the symptoms worsen.

    We advise you to speak with your trek guide if you experience any discomfort as a result of these symptoms. Your hike leader will behave in accordance with your medical conditions. Guides will look after you if you recuperate with the necessary meds. However, the handbook calls for an emergency helicopter evacuation if the situation worsens.

    To avoid altitude sickness, stay away from alcoholic and caffeine-containing drinks while on the hike. You can prevent high altitude sickness by eating enough meals and drinking lots of lukewarm water. If you want to take medication, we advise bringing one or two Diamox tablets, which help hikers avoid altitude sickness. You can acquire bottled oxygen at Everest Base Camp while staying there and sleeping there for a day if you have trouble breathing.

    Sleep at Base Camp on Everest Trek Safety Equipment

    Without the right preparation and logistics, sleeping at Everest Base Camp overnight can be dangerous. Therefore, Green Valley Nepal Treks promises to make 100% of the necessary arrangements for safety equipment, such as bottled oxygen, wholesome meals, warm overnight sleeping bags, tents at secure locations, far from avalanche-prone areas, and much more, in order to reduce any potential risk.

      Joined Green Valley Nepal Treks for the sleep at base camp on Everest Trek

      I joined Green Valley Nepal Treks for the sleep at base camp on Everest Trek experience, and it exceeded all my expectations. I emailed Arjun Pandey to manage everything for this adventure and get things done very quickly. Our guide Biru was not only experienced but also friendly and accommodating. The lodges and teahouses we stayed in were comfortable, and the sleeping bag provided kept me warm and cozy at night. The trek itself was challenging, but the sense of accomplishment upon reaching Base Camp was indescribable. I highly recommend Green Valley Nepal Treks for a safe and memorable journey to the Everest Base Camp.

      Remarkable Journey to Everest Base Camp with Overnight in Tent

      Green Valley Nepal Treks, under the leadership of Arjun Pandey, provided me with a remarkable journey to Everest Base Camp. The guide Bishow was knowledgeable about the region and ensured our safety throughout. Sleeping accommodations were basic but clean, and the sleeping bag they provided was crucial for staying warm at those high altitudes. The trek itself was physically demanding but worth every step for the breathtaking Himalayan views. I'll treasure the memories of this trip for a lifetime.
