Trip overview

All about this trip

High in the Khumbu region of Nepal, close to Mt Everest and closer still to the steep south face of Mt Lhotse, the aptly named Island Peak (6189m) rises above the of glaciated valleys below. With its outrageous location and challenging summit ridge, this peak has been a favourite with our guides, leaders, and clients for a number of years. Trekking via Namche Bazaar we follow the route to Everest Base Camp via the Gokyo valley and Cho La Pass route and into Lobuche beside the Khumbu glacier. As part of our acclimatisation programme we visit Everest Base Camp and make an ascent of the classic viewpoint of Kala Pattar, where we enjoy some of the finest views of the world’s highest peak. Then crossing the Khumbu Glacier, we climb up to the Kongma La pass which gives us access to the valley of the Imja Khola and the summer grazing settlement of Chukkung. From here we move up to Island Peak base camp for our main objective, Island Peak. The ascent of this 6000 metre peak in the shadow of the huge Lhotse face is a real ‘alpine experience’ in every sense, involving fine climbing in exposed situations amongst breathtaking scenery. This is one epic challenge.

Our trip includes three days to climb Island Peak which includes an extra time in case of bad weather or if you require extra time for acclimatisation.

Experience Required

The Ultimate Island Peak and Everest Base Camp Expedition with 2 high passes is a tough and arduous trek and climb. It is meant to be challenging. You must be a fit, regular hillwalker to take part, used to long, consecutive days walking in the British Mountains, preferably in Winter. You should have experience of walking steep, boulder-strewn paths where the use of hands has been essential to scramble upwards over rocky steps. Previous experience of Himalayan trekking is preferable, but not essential as long as you are a very regular and committed hill-walker. As this route takes you over remote high passes and a Himalayan peak, experience of having been to 5000-metres before is ideal.

We can forward a detailed equipment list upon booking. However, you can also view our Recommended Equipment for this trip »

Over the years, we have gained an incredible amount of experience and expertise in outdoor equipment and clothing. We have applied this to each trip that we offer and recommend what we believe to be the most suitable items for your trip.

  • Day 1

    Arrival day (1,300m/4,264 ft)

    Welcome to Kathmandu – the capital city of Nepal. Today is your first day with EverTrek. Once you’ve passed through passport control and collected your bags, you’ll head out to the front of Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) to be greeted by one of our friendly team members  - look for the EverTrek sign, you won’t miss them! They will be there to pick you up and transport you to your hotel in Thamel.

    Today, the itinerary is clear, as EverTrekkers will be arriving throughout the day at differing flight times. This means that you will have a chance to rest and relax after your journey to Nepal, and may also have the opportunity to meet some of the team and fellow trekkers, to discuss details of your upcoming trek.

  • Day 2

    Kathmandu valley sightseeing and expedition preparation (1,300m/4,264 ft)cf

    Kathmandu Valley is a fantastic place with numerous natural, cultural and historical sites. Today, you will be taken on a tour around Kathmandu to visit some of these major attractions. Kathmandu lies at 1300m above sea level so it’s important to get out and about today and let your body acclimatise. After spending a few hours observing these wonderful sites, you will meet with the team and guides to finalise your equipment and trekking gear required during the trek, if you haven’t already checked these on Day 1.

    In the evening you will enjoy a delicious welcome meal with your fellow EverTrekkers. In previous years this had been on the first day of the trip, however it has recently been moved to Day 2 to ensure that those trekkers on later flights don’t miss out on this enjoyable experience. If in Kathmandu, (see below), you'll be taken to one of the most popular local restaurants where you can enjoy Nepali food along with cultural music and ethnic dance.

    Today also gives you the opportunity to grab any last-minute items in the trekking hub of Thamel and get an early night ready for the trek tomorrow.

    *Something to note*

    Due to ongoing development and important maintenance at Kathmandu Tribhuvan Airport, your flight to Lukla may be rerouted to Ramechhap Airport. This is because the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) ruled that flights to and from Lukla during the 2019 post-monsoon season would operate through Ramechhap rather than Kathmandu. This action has been prolonged longer than expected and the CAAN is looking at permanently moving all flights that go to Lukla from Ramechhap. While some flights will certainly still go from Kathmandu, they are not always guaranteed, even when booked in advance and can be subject to unplanned and prolonged delays.

    If flying to Lukla from Ramechhap Airport, the journey to Ramechhap will start on day two of your itinerary. After a part-day tour of Kathmandu, you will drive for approx. four to five hours to the town of Mulkot where EverTrek will provide accommodation and your evening meal. As with all Nepalese roads, the journey will be a bumpy one, but it’s necessary to ensure your dream of Base Camp becomes a reality! It will be an early start on day three, as you wake up at 3:30/4:30 am and take a short 30-minute drive to the airport. The flight to Lukla is shorter from Ramechhap than from Kathmandu which means we can monitor the weather windows with greater accuracy. EverTrek will get you on one of the first flights to Lukla where you can have a hearty breakfast and celebrate the start of your trek!

    On the return journey, you will fly from Lukla to Ramechhap and then take the long bumpy adventurous drive back to Kathmandu. The traffic going into Kathmandu can be severe, so this may take approximately six to seven hours (with breaks for food and a stretch).

    Although this has been an enforced change for everyone from CAAN, our ultimate aim is to get you on the trek safely and to make it to Everest base camp so we have made plans to make sure there will be as minimal disruption as possible. We will provide all the additional staff and accommodation for the diversion, absolutely no cost will be passed onto you, our awesome EverTrekkers, but we do ask for your patience with the potential change with the itinerary.


    (Highlights of the day: World Heritage sites like Kathmandu Durbar Square ,Pashupatinath temple, Swyambhunath and Boudhanath Stupa.

    Today will be spent exploring the valley for more acclimatisation and climbing the Gokyo RI Pass (5,630m) above the village on the northern edge of the lake. We spend some time relishing the views of the magnificent mountains around at this significant height which again helps with our ’Hike high, sleep low’ plan. We then descend and hike back down to the village where we relax and enjoy some lunch on the glacier. Depending on how the group are doing, we can choose to hike further up the valley to see Cho Oyu and the additional Gokyo lake at the top of the valley.

    The night will be spent at a lodge in Gokyo Valley.

  • Day 10

    Trek to Dragnag (4,700m/15,419ft)

    Today our destination is Dragnag. Leaving the Third Lake behind, we start the hike super early as we need to walk across the Ngozumba glacier.

    We cross the glacier before the sun gets stronger, as during the sunny days the ice melts making the trail a little bit challenging and difficult to walk. After crossing the glacier, following the east bank of the glacier, we slightly descend to Dragnag. The rest of the day can also be spent hiking nearby hills, which helps to acclimatise. The night will be spent at a lodge in Dragnag.

Initially, we walk a vertical uphill trail along a small stream crossing Chola Phedi. Then, the trail drops down to the bottom of the Chola pass. The trail here is icy, slippery and difficult to cross. From the base, a steep rocky ascent will take us to the top of the Chola Pass. The top greets you with flapping prayer flag and a wonderful view of Gokyo Valley. After spending some time here, a steep descend following icy (use of crampons recommended) and rocky trail will first take us to the valley, from where Dzongla is fairly an easy walk. The night will be spent at a lodge in Dzongla.

    Trek to Gorekshep and Visit Everest Base camp (5,364m/17,598ft)

    Today we reach the majestic Everest Base Camp. Following the trail along the Khumbu Glacier, the hike continues towards Gorakshep past Lobuche glacier, pyramid, Lobuche pass and the confluence of Changri Nup, Changri Shar and Khumbu glacier. As we depart Gorakshep, the walk continues on some difficult glacial moraine. This route does change year on year so we will find the safest route through this area. We will eventually reach the historic Everest base camp and also hike up to the Khumbu Icefall which is the start of the Everest summit route. We will spend some time here taking it all in and taking photos and then walk back to Gorakshep for an overnight stay. The night will be spent at a lodge in Gorakshep.

    Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

    (Highlights of the day: Wonderful view of Kala Patthar, Mt. Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern, Khumbutse, and Nuptse, the view of Changri Nup, Changri Shar, Khumbu Glacier, north ridge of Mt. Everest, ice fall and the base camp of Mt. Everest.)

    What a view!

    We then descend to Gorak Shep. From Gorak Shep, we follow the icy trail over Khumbu Glacier, and follow the valley all the way to Lobuche reaching Lobuche in the late morning or early afternoon. The rest of the day can be spent enjoying coffee and cake at the cafe or even taking a gentle walk to the top  of the glacier to get some amazing photos. In the evening as the sun sets head outside  and have a camera read as Nuptse Peak will light up with the setting sun and give you a stunning display.

    Meals included: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

  • Day 14

    Trek to Chhukung Via Kongma La Pass ( 4,730m/15,518ft)

    From Lobuche, on crossing the icy trail over the Khumbu Glacier, we head towards Kongma La at 5,535m its the highest of the three high passes. It’s a tough climb to the top of the Kongma La pass as the trail is icy and slippery. Also, the area lacks water resources and tea houses. Therefore, we make sure we carry enough water to last us and after a rest and time spent enjoying the view, a steep downward trail will lead us to Lhangbo. Leaving the main trail, we follow the Island Peak trek trail  and a short ascent will finally take us to Chhukhung. The night will be spent at a lodge in Chhukhung.

    It’s time to get closer to the big one, Island Peak. Therefore, Island Peak base camp is the destination for us for today. We first walk towards the south and then towards the main valley in the east. Initially the trail is quite easy along the stream that heads towards the mountain. It then turns rocky trail and becomes glacial as we cross Lhotse glacier and Imja glacial moraine. We then reach the base camp Island peak.

    We also include some training for the summit attempt if you havn’t used Ice Axe or crampons previously. The night will be spent in a tented camp at the base camp Island Peak.

    Today we reach the main destination of the trek that is the summit of Island Peak. We start as early as possible to get a head start. Using the techniques taught by the climbing leader over the last couple of days, we make our way through short rock steps, crevasses, seracs, 40-45 degree slopes, out of the summit glacier and finally up to the summit.

Where you'll be staying during this trip

Whilst in Kathmandu, before and after your trek, we do like a little bit of comfort!

That's why we have handpicked one of the best hotels around - Aloft!

This is the hotel we use for all of our trekkers.

Along the trek you will stay in comfortable lodges and Tea houses (not pictured). These do change depending on the time of year you visit but all are on a twin sharing basis unless otherwise stated.

We Love Our

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say
I booked my trip to Everest Basecamp in 2019 with a view to going in March 2020 obviously with Covid no one could go, Evertrek moved my dates with one phone call no quibble, no questions asked, no problem.
If you have any questions about anything to do with the trip just phone, e-mail or message them off FB they always get back, the whole team are fantastic. The trip itself in March this year was utterly stunning my airline didn’t put my bag on my connecting flight from Doha(not their fault by the way) the Evertrek representative that met me at the airport was tremendous he took care of the whole thing, i think my bag was in Hotel Aloft within 12 hours. Our guides were astonishing Lama Sherpa, Ngodu Sherpa and Nema Sherpa deserve a special mention they were faultless their knowledge of the Himalayas and local culture was amazing. They couldn’t do enough for us always smiling, always in a good mood.
If you want to do a trekking trip, personally I wouldn’t try anyone else. I’ve had a look at others some don’t provide internal flights some won’t include breakfast, lunch and dinner some won’t include guides. With Evertrek you don’t have to worry about this stuff. You get your kit, flights, insurance etc etc, off you go. Awesome trip thank you Evertrek.

Where do I begin..ease of booking a trek, fantastic communication, calm advice and the best on line community.

l can't emphasis enough the brilliance of been able to move a trip for free if circumstances dictate.

My trek from stepping from the plane was well planned and supported. The trek itself ( Annapurna Base Camp) was one of the best experiences ever. Our guides and porters were superb, knowledgeable and very accommodating - going over and above if anyone needed extra support.

The trip was life changing and I'm going back for more with team EverTrek

I could not recommend Evertrek enough! They went above and beyond from the very moment I called to enquire right the way through until the very moment I arrived back home.

We happened to be stuck in Nepal for an additional 10 days due to the country going into lockdown and Evertrek worked tirelessly every single day to ensure not only were we in the loop with what was going on but also just to make sure we were comfortable, happy and OK!

They don't feel like your typical corporate company, the entire team is super friendly and make you feel like pals! Something quite important to me and they showed in every single way is that they truly care for all their staff, as soon as the Sherpas and guides lost pretty much all work for this season they set up a justgiving page to help support their families! They doing everything with love and care both for their customers and their team!!

Ok, I could go on! Bottom line is, if you are looking for some trekking adventures, look no further. Just go and book it, you will not regret it!

Thank you for reminding me why I love travelling and trekking so much, now you have awoken it I have lots of planning to do for 2021 hehe!! ❤️

Professional travel company
They were fantastic and went out their way to support me when I was stuck in Nepal due to the Coronavirus lockdown
I would highly recommend this company to any trekkers looking for a travel company.
I will definitely be using this company again in the future.

After months of research I chose Evertrek as the company to lead me on a once in a lifetime trip to Everest base camp. It is by far the best decision I have ever made. The organisation was second to non and nothing was left to chance, the accommodation, the guides, Sherpas and porters were amazing. However our group went at the start of the Coronovirus outbreak and on return to Lukla we were in a country in Lockdown, this is were Evertrek became invaluable, as other trekkers were stuck EverTrek’s people in Nepal came into there own, they organised flight to Kathmandu and when stuck in Kathmandu they found the very best hotel and kept us informed constantly as did the Evertrek guys back home. They never left us alone until we were at the airport.
Nothing was to much for the guys in the UK or Kathmandu, if you are thinking about this trip there is only one company to consider EVERTREK 110%

The contact has been brilliant with the EverTrek team!
Thanks Guys.
Now to get into training!

Evertrek are a fantastic, they support you, are very knowledgeable. The service that I have received is second to none and I can not fault it at all, it’s first class all the way. The booking process is easy, they are very knowledgeable and I can’t wait to to go Everest, I know it will be the best experience of my life. I will do other trips with them, as I know I am in the best hands, you could not ask more more from the team. Amazing service and very supportive always!

I traveled to EBC this October and would really recommend Evertrek. Being my first adventure holiday, it was reassuring to have such a supportive team with lots of information, advice and kit recommendations prior to departure.

Having little things like filtered water and meals included in the cost (I saw another group having to queue to pay for breakfast) might seem trivial but it meant we didn't have to worry about running out of money on the trek - and they treat their guides and sherpas (who were top class and couldn't do enough for you) with consideration and respect.

I always felt well looked after throughout my time in Nepal, and they put a great deal of effort into ensuring that the holiday went smoothly such as rearranging flights, and adapted to any issues that arose.

Evertrek made it a great holiday. I met some fun people, have some great memories and lots of photos! You even get a free bag, medal and certificate!

Just travelling back from an amazing EBC trip with Evertrek. I've travelled with a lot of other adventure travel companies in the past but have to say Evertrek has been the best. From the easy booking process and pre departure info and support, to the amazing local Kathmandu
team, guides, sherpas, porters and yak men in Nepal I cant fault Evertrek. If you are thinking about a trip just do it. You wont regret it. And you wont regret choosing Evertrek either. I'm already looking at other trips and not even home yet!

Absolutely first class, from when I first booked knowing nothing about hiking at altitude, right the way through the trip itself. Everything has been handled with the utmost professionalism and the entire team has been incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and hardworking. Our guide, Padam, and his team are worth their weight in gold. Could not recommend Evertrek enough.

Not been to EBC yet but have booked to go with them next March.
I’ve just returned from a fantastic training weekend with them in the Brecon Beacons. It was wet and windy but Evertrek didn’t disappoint, . From start to finish, the experience was great. Both Andy( the owner) and his trusty sidekick Dave (the painted Yeti) were there to make us feel welcome. They were both hands on, and their knowledge was second to none.
I can’t wait to actually go to Everest, and after this weekend I feel assured that I’ll be in great hands.
Nothing was too much trouble, and it was great see the way that Andy and Dave talk about Everest with such a passion.
Well done guys

This trip was exceptional from start to finish. Has to be one of the best run and professional companies I have come across. Before we even started we were sent weekly emails and lots of correspondence to get us excited for the trip. Any questions and worries were answered straight away some even by video replies!! The actual Everest base camp trip itself was one of the best experiences of my life however very tough! Everything from start to finish was run perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for more from Andy, Dave and the Sherpas they provided! A 5 star service all round!

I had the most fantastic trip in Nepal, all thanks to evertrek. Andy was so so helpful from the moment I first rang about going. Nothing was ever to much, always had a speedy reply- which was reassuring when I was stressing about equipment. The training weekend that they offer is also incredibly helpful and really gets you ready for your holiday.
Our guide in Nepal, Bhim and his team, were absolutely fantastic, they worked unbelievably hard, you never wanted for anything. (Watch them, they cheat at cards!!haha)
As for the trek, the negotiations of getting to Lukla were a bit up in the air...but that's just Nepal! Go with the flow. But once we got there, it was absolutely brilliant, everyday the scenery was beautiful and I never felt like they expected to much from you. Plenty of rest time and tea stops! I personally really enjoyed the food (I lived on veggi curry and rice-you get seconds :D) and thought all the accommodation was fine!!
Basically an all round incredible trip, there wasn't a second I didn't enjoy!!! Highly recommend Andy and the team. Would defo do another trek with them :D

Recently returned from our EBC trek and I can’t fault Evertrek, right from the minute you sign up Andy is giving advice and replying to any queries you might have. Special thanks to Phurba and Harry our guides over there, they keep a eye on you and don’t let you go to quickly up the mountain and look after you. If you are thinking about doing it just go for it you won’t regret it . Awesome

I had the most amazing trip to Everest Base Camp with Evertrek, thank you Andy for being the font of all knowledge about this trip and for Rishi our guide for looking after us. It is probably the most challenging holiday I have ever done but it was worth every moment and the scenery was just stunning. Nepal is an amazing place and I will definitely go back one day. Thanks to Evertrek and my trekking buddies for a very special holiday.

Having recently booked myself on a trip to Everest Base Camp with Evertrek, I thought it would be one of those trips where you get to hear about everything you should have done two weeks before you go. Not with Andy and Evertrek. Immediately Andy was in touch with information, assistance and support. You could feel his energy coming at you. Along with the practical advice, Evertrek arrange training activities. These are great for finding out first hand what you need to know and how you might cope with the activities ahead. It really does crank up the excitement when you share your thoughts and views with fellow Evertrekers. This weekend we had one of these training activities in the Brecons. Andy made us all very welcome, and was there all the way, rain and shine, to helps us all along.
We made some great connections, enjoyed the socialising (you earn it!) and came away even more excited to be getting on the plane to Nepal. Hopefully there will be more such events to enjoy, and build on the training already done. I’m already walking the dogs for 10mins more🙂.
Thanks to Andy and the team for a great weekend. Good luck to those on their way in the next few months, and those who have a longer wait we can share your excitement.

Overjoyed with my recent trip to EBC. I can't praise Evertrek enough. From the 1st day I contacted Andy he has been amazing. Offering fantastic advice & tips before my trip.
Hotel, guides & transfers in Kathmandu were spot on.
Biggest credit has to go to the guide & sherpa who take care of you every step of the way.

Thank you Evertrek

A truly wonderful once in a lifetime experience. My sister and I trekked to Everest Basecamp with Evertrek to mark the tenth anniversary of our dearest Mum passing away. It was an emotional experience we will never forget. It gave us time to reflect on wonderful times past and brought us closer as only shared endeavour can. The Himalayan backdrop was the perfect location.

But it's the people that made the trek. Our guide Kishor is a wonderful guy. A real fixer, high altitude expert, family man and now, friend. When the weather delayed our flight, he did everything he could to make sure we were first onto another. His experience, knowledge and local contacts got us into places we just wouldn't have seen without him. He knew when to go to the best places to avoid the crowds and he was the picture of happiness with his infectious smile. He was kind to the point of putting us first all the time, without hesitation. A true gentlemen and the source of lots of fun and laughter - perfect for morale. Our porters also deserve a mention for their hard work and dedication through some difficult long days at high altitude. Manesh was particularly hard working and charming, keen to learn and become a guide himself in time. Our trek wouldn't have been the same without them and when I go again I will definitely seek out the same team.

My recommendation? Grab a loved one and go trekking in Nepal in the capable hands of the Evertrek team. And request Kishor to be your guide. You won't regret it.

Thanks guys for the experience of a lifetime. What can I say about Evertrek! Simply brilliant. From the moment we spoke with Andy and signed up it was all taken care of. The guides were truly amazing, professional and were always on-hand to look after us. Listen, this is a tough challenge but it's well within the reach of most of you out there considering the possibility. I've kept myself pretty fit all my life (63 years young) but trying to keep up with my sons was, at times, pushing my limits. The scenery is so beautiful it becomes an emotional challenge at times. We did Kilimanjaro a few years ago - Base Camp blows that away completely. However, you need to be in the best hands and we were. Our guides, Rahul and Krishna were meticulous in making sure we were looked after every step of the way and needless to say we have become friends for life. I cannot recommend EverTrex highly enough. Don't think about this for too long - just do it. They'll get there and you'll never forget the experience. So,as soon as I have some pics ready I'll upload and share but please do not hesitate to contact me while I'm still flying through thin air!!! Thanks again Andy and EverTrex

Loved every minute of the Everest Base Camp trek! The guys were all very accommodating and helpful in the build up to and on the trek. Everything about the package ensured my time was comfortable, fun and without any worries. Our guide Rawal was informative, friendly and a great laugh when he got his drums out on the last night! A big thank you to Evertrek for making this happen and I look forward to booking with you guys again!

Hey guys!
Just wanted to say a huge thanks to all at Bucket List, both here and in Nepal, for making my trip to EBC, Cho La and Gokyo so enjoyable and memorable. Himal, my guide, was a star and I enjoyed his company throughout the two plus weeks we were together; he looked after me really well and I have no doubt that his local knowledge helped to smooth the way on a few occasions when accommodation was tight! If my wife can be persuaded to let me go again, you will be my first port of call.

What a first class service, Andy was supportive, knowledgeable and really quick at replying. If you want to make base camp then this is the way to do it, from the airport to the top and back again. Fully supported, with a friendly team. Would not hesitate to book more treks in Nepal with Andy. Thank you team.
