Everest base camp trekking

Everest base camp Trek provides you great opportunity to have unique experience. If you have ever longed to set eyes on our highest summit then this exciting trek in the Everest region gives you the opportunity to fulfil a dream, while taking in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Himalaya. Ever since the days of early climbing expeditions, the 8848m mountain has had a lure of its own, drawing climbers to scale it and trekkers to gaze on its icy faces. Naturally, the trail to the base camp of the mountain has become one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal, yet few people return from the trek unmoved by the experience of being right in among the highest peaks in the world.
From Kathmandu we fly to Lukla, and the adventure begins as we land at its tiny airstrip. We spend several days trekking through the homelands of the Sherpa people, among their villages and Buddhist monasteries, with distant views of Everest and neighbouring Ama Dablam, considered by many to be among the most beautiful mountains in Nepal. A day is spent at Namche Bazaar, the bustling market town in the heart of Sherpa country, and at Pheriche a cluster of houses set among the high summer grazing pastures of the region. These rest days allow time to explore further and to acclimatize, an important factor in your enjoyment of the trek. Those who have fully acclimatized may trek to the Everest Base Camp but without doubt, the highlight for most will be the awe-inspiring views which unfold from the summit of Kala Pattar - the chaotic ice sculptures of the Khumbu Glacier, Nuptse and the south-west face of Everest itself. Not forgetting, of course, the personal sense of achievement that many experience at the end of their trek, when it is all over and we fly back to Kathmandu.
During the trek we follow the main Everest Base Camp Trail, the route pioneered and still used by many climbing expeditions. The trail is well maintained and apart from the walk up Kala Pattar and the final stretch to base camp, not particularly demanding. What makes it hard going is the altitude, which may affect your performance, though rest days are built into the trek to help you acclimatize. Most trekking days allow ample time to cover the distance at a leisurely pace. To enjoy the trek fully you need to be fit and a regular hill walker. Previous trekking experience is obviously an asset, but is not essential.

Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the classic treks in Nepal. It is the most common two weeks trek starting and finishing at Lukla, the airport just to the south of Everest National park. The Everest Base Camp trek (5400m) is without doubt one of the most famous treks in the world.
