Everest Base Camp Trek Distance
by Jayaram Thapaliya · Updated September 6, 2023
The total distance of the most popular Everest Base Camp Trek is 130 km which will start from Lukla and ends also in Lukla.
For those who have previous trekking or hiking experience, the EBC trek distance from Kathmandu is not so far. The 138km distance you’ll cross by plane to get to the gateway of Everest(Lukla) whereas Lukla Everest Base Camp 65km and Base Camp to Lukla 65km is not so far.
Excluding rest day on our 14 days standard Everest Base Camp Trek, we will trek mainly for 9 days. So the average walk Each day during the Everest Trek is 9km(135km/9 days) per day.
If you go through a trekking agency, mostly they provide porters in the trekking package to carry the guest backpack. So in my opinion without a heavy pack, a 9km walk is not a difficult journey even though it’s high altitude trekking.
