Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek is one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal. EBC trek offers you the most stunning views of world’s tallest mountains.


Description

Trekking to EBC provides you to explore Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Cho Oyu and Mt. Lhotse which are the four of world’s six tallest peaks. Trekking through Everest Base Camp is an opportunity to live the real life of Sherpas for couple of weeks.

15 days Everest base camp trekking begins with an early morning flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, a popular mountain airstrip at an altitude of (2,800m) in the heart of the Khumbu Region. Then, we start around three hours walk to our first stop at Phakding. Next day morning we continue our trek north up the Dudh Kosi Valley to Namche Bazaar, quite a hard day, where we spend a day for acclimatizing, hygienic food and accommodation. From Namche Bazaar we gradually push up at our own pace to Kala Pattar and spend overnight in Dingboche for some side trips and further acclimatization. After some spectacular close up views of Everest along with Nuptse Lohtse and Mount Pumori from Kalapattar and Everest Base Camp we descend to Namche Bazaar for overnight stay. Next day morning we continue our trek to Lukla to catch the next day early morning flight to Kathmandu.

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity” - John Muir, Our National Parks
