Mount Everest Base Camp Hike 2019: 12 Days, 130km, 5,380m (Complete Guide)

Everest base camp in 12 days? challenge accepted!

Since we went to Nepal for the first time, Jeff, our friend Jess and I always dreamed of going back and doing the famous Everest base camp trek. We decided to do it at the end of Jeff and I’s 6 months around the world travels, to finish on the best note possible!

The three of us did this trek on our own, with decent physical condition and it was our decision to go without porters or guides, after a lot of research and preparation of our itinerary. It’s very important to be prepared and informed, and we do recommend a guide if you are going in the busy season (February through May). We went in late November-beginning of December, so we didn’t need to book any lodges ahead, and the trails were almost empty - however, it was cold! 

Here is everything you need to know about the trek to Everest base camp, including the logistics, permits, weather, gear, costs, full itinerary and our tips and tricks after having done it in December.
