If from Kathmandu you are flying to Lukla, you will require minimum of 12 days to reach Everest Base Camp and be back to Kathmandu. People usually do it comfortably in a span of 13 days 14 days – 18 days. A 14 day itinerary usually has 2 Acclimatization day which makes the trek safer. A must in Namche Bazaar and one more either in Dingboche, Dughla or Periche. It’s a high altitude trek and if you take ill you need to be rescued and airlifted, which will cost more. ( you can also get your trip insured )
You can also start this trek from Jiri or salleri and end in Jiri or salleri of you have more time. The legends like Sir Edmund Hillary started their approach march from Jiri or Salleri and till this date, few hard core trekkers follow the traditional route. This route can be completed in about 18 to 20 days.
While planning your days, you need to plan wise and keep extra days for the Lukla Flight Inconsistencies. It is better if you keep 2 buffer days.

Its takes 60 days to 65 Days
Hiking: As a solo hiker can you camp overnight at Mount Everest Base Camp?

The short answer is “not really” Can,t Possible stay overnight EBC. To be specific though, I’m referring to Base Camp from the Nepali south approach and not the Tibetan/China north approach. These are two distinct camps. I’ll be talking about my experience from the Nepal side (which I think is the more common approach).

Anyone can hike into the general vicinity of Base Camp. However, for climbers who plan on making a summit attempt they try to keep you separated from the general population of other climbers, who aren’t attempting the summit, so that you don’t accidentally catch an illness, which is then spread to the rest of the climbers making a summit bid. So it’s almost like they quarantine those attempting to summit Everest by keeping Base Camp setup in it’s own little area that’s a few hundred meters away from where most climbers stop to take a picture at the official Base Camp sign.

These pictures should help demonstrate.

This is a shot of Khumbu Glacier (the stretch of rock covered ice in the middle of the picture). It’s a huge glacier field that marks the path towards Everest Base Camp. We were at about 16,500 feet here. Notice my climbing crew in the lower left hand corner of the picture. Off in the distance is Base Camp. The perspective is skewed though. It looks close but we still had about 4 more hours of trekking to go before we got to Base Camp. It was slow going at that altitude

Today’s post is just about the difficulties and hardships of trekking to Everest Base Camp. They are worth it a million times over but I need to get them down before they evaporate from my mind forever, as they will. I will remember these 3 weeks as a fantastic experience, a privilege and a challenge enjoyed by few. It was stunning up there.

We trekked to Everest Base Camp without a guide or porter, we don’t think they’re necessary after trekking in Nepal a few times, but you may prefer to take one.
