The Everest Base Camp Trek is famous around the world as its offers a world-class trekking trail, heading straight up to the mother of earth - Mount Everest, the worlds highest mountain at 8,850 m. When doing the everest base camp trek you will be flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, the airport in the everest region, landing amidst mountains. The closer you get to Everest Base camp, the higher the more altitude you take on, and the more mountainous the landscape gets.
The scenery on this trek is extremely rewarding and despite it may be tough and challenging at times, this is a one-in-a-lifetime-experience which you are likely to remember for the rest of your life.
Leaving the airport Lukla, the trek starts and we will spend the first night in Phakding. On the second day we will trek to Namche Bazar, the capital of the Everest region. Here, at an altitude of 3,400 meters, we will take one rest day to acclimatize properly. This also gives us a chance to explore Namche and make an excursion to a great view point, getting the first view of Mount Everest.
From Namche Bazaar, we trek through high altitudes and chilly weather. After four hours trekking, we reach Tyangboche Monastery which is located at an altitude of 3,867 m. This monastery resides on the top of a ridge. It provides the first divine view of Sagarmatha, which Mount Everest is called by the local inhabitants of the Everest region.
From here, we move towards our destination following the villages of Imja Khola, Pangboche and Pheriche, finally reaching the vast Khumbu glacier. Beyond this glacier we reach the village of Lobuche where we can rest for some time and admire the exquisite natural surroundings. Soon you will be atop the great viewpoint of KalaPatthar at an altitude of 5,600 meters. You will also stand face to face with mountaineers preparing to ascend Mt. Everest, at Everest Base Camp.
If you are able to trek 6 hours a day, you can do this trek. If in doubt, we highly recommend that you employ the services of a porter who can carry your backpack (1 porter can carry up to 30 kgs so can be shared between 2 people). You can add a porter upon check-out.
We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic trekking experience.
