      Been to the base camp on the Tibetan side about 20 years ago, drank beer, watched a Kong Fu film with the local monks, and did a l little hiking up past the camp.

      base camp sounds cool.

        The Tibetan side sounds cool because fewer people go and the highway goes right up to the mountain like you're in a developed country and the view of the north face is stunning you can see the whole mountain without other terrain obstructing it.

      I read somewhere that they don't recommend you to drink alcohol even at base camp because it can mask the symptoms of altitude sickness

        Probably a good idea, but I was in my mid twenties and had already been in Tibet for a month....

      did base camp couple of years ago
      fun and adventurous and worth it for the money compared to Kili which is more expensive
      took the helicopter down was so scenic

      What is the process and cost to go to base camp? I'm going to nepal soon and thought I may as well, but a cursory google brings up prices of hundreds of pounds to visit. Is there a bus I can just hop on, then camp or get a cheap hotel for a night or two, then frick off again on a bus?

        hike is 10-13 days depending on your fitness level
        you can do with a guide+agency for $1000-1500+ or on your own
        plenty of lodges(tea houses) along the way, extremely basic though very cheap accommodation but expensive food

        Most convenient way is to fly into Lukla airport, generally from Kathmandu. From there on, it's 5-7 days of walking one way or so, then a few days back down. By car you'd have to get a jeep to Thamdanda or somesuch, then walk to Lukla, adding several days of walking each way. Didn't do it that way, but I can promise you it'll be a rough ride. Nepal has poor rood infrastructure due to its mountainous geography and low level of development.

        While it isn't technically challenging to walk up to EBC and routefinding is very easy, the altitude is a factor that shouldn't be ignored, so you may or may not want to hire a guide or porter. Packing light is also possible, as all the food and drinks you need can be purchased along the route. More expensive than elsewhere in Nepal though, due to the fact that everything has to be flown in and carried up on foot. The higher up you go, the more expensive everything becomes. You can sleep in tea houses along the way, which will cost you less than a meal.

        Tl;dr it takes time and walking

        I went to the base camp all alone a few years ago. Spent less than 1000$ in one month in Nepal with all included.

        There are three ways to get to the Everest base camp trail:

        1. Take the flight to Lukla. The most expensive but fast option. There is a big risk of bad weather canceling flights so you can be stranded there for several days and miss your flight out.

        2. You can take a "Jeep" from Kathmandu and will leave you around 3-5 days away from Lukla so you'll have to walk extra. It's pretty uncomfortable, the trip is long and they pack people like sardines but it's relatively cheap.

        3. There is a public bus that leaves at 5am from Kathmandu to Saleri. It's pretty hard to find info about it since they don't want foreigners to know about this option since it's very cheap. I took this bus, it took a full day to reach there, was decently comfortable but there are a lot of locals carting all kinds of merchandise to the point you can't really move around. Stops one hour in some spot with restaurants where you can eat.

        The hike itself to the base camp is super easy. You absolutely don't need a guide or porters, it's a very easy trail, wide, simple to follow. There are a lot of teahouses where you can eat and sleep on the cheap. Also the trail is chock full of tourists, just follow other people if you're worried you might get lost. It's as busy as a city street in the spring season.

        You also don't need any special gear. I went in summer running shoes with a 40l backpack. I rented a sleeping bag and down jacket from Kathmandu and that was it. Some shirts, a fleece and some warm pants a hat and you're all set.

    If you do the base camp; do you get to hike to the base of Everest so that you can say you set your foot on the mountain?

      You can't even see Everest from base camp strangely enough

      Isn't it just filled with investment bankers and bros who add it as an achievement on linkedin?

      Yes. It costs more to climb Everest than most people make in a year. Idk if this is still the case, but for a while they weren't letting people who weren't involved with climbing the mountain in to base camp either.

    I wish, it's something of a dream of mine to climb mountains, but I'm too old to get any good and it's too expensive anyway. That's Ama Dablam btw, not Everest. It has that characteristic piece of rock jutting out on the left.

      There's a 65 year old dude doing the base camp in my group. Going slow but making it.

        I guess I'm not THAT old, it just feels like every good mountaineer was climbing big mountains in their early teens while I'm almost 33 and have never climbed anything and have to fix my shoulder injury before I can even get started. It's demotivating. Not to mention the tens of thousands of dollars just one 8000 meter peak is going to set me back, money I'll (most likely) never have to just blow on a single adventure. But good for that dude, hope he makes it.

          There's plenty of amazing peaks between 3000 and 7000m that can be climbed for cheap anon, and many don't require too much technical skill. Basic mountaineering isn't cheap, but once you have the basic gear it's pretty affordable, and far less expensive than you seem to think.

              I once had an amazing day mountaineering climbing Großvenediger and all its surrounding peaks, climbing the Schwarzwand/Hoher Zaun from the Neue Prager Hütte and ticking off the other peaks to the summit. All below 4000m. Plenty of easy 4000m summits in the Alps too.

              Mount Kazbek I would also recommend. The Elbrus North face is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, both 5000m peaks. In the Khumbu region in Nepal there's several easy 6000m peaks such as Island Peak and Lobuche East. Mera Peak is another popular hiking peak, if you go in December the permits are far cheater, the crowds are gone, and the weather is still stable.

              Easy 7000m peaks that come to mind are Lenin peak and Muztagh Ata. Haven't done these, but will try Lenin at some point, not that expensive either.

              Don't know about North America, but there endless amounts of beautiful peaks in the Rockies and up in Alaska.

          We're just trekking, so the max you can simply walk was Kala Patthar, at 5644m. Not going on the Everest itself or doing any form of alpinism.

    Did the EBC trek to basecamp and then did some side treks (kala pattar, chola pass, gokyo ri) as well, many years ago. Basecamp itself was a garbage dump, the real magic for trekkers is the side adventures
