Everest Base Camp Trek  is legendary for the trail route of the world’s highest peak- Mount Everest and the diverse landscapes extending across the Himalayas. There are snow-capped peaks, icefalls, glacial lakes, rivers, forests, and mountain villages. But the journey itself is full of adventures, the steep and rocky trail that includes suspension bridges and teahouses for food and accommodation en route.

The trek to Everest Base Camp starts from Kathmandu with Eva scenic flight to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region. Being a remote mountainous terrain, airways and helicopter flights are the only means of transportation to get to the Khumbu region.

The trail commences from Lukla, winding its way up and down, passing through quaint Sherpa villages along the journey. The Sherpa people are renowned for their proficient mountaineering skills and ability to be much better acclimatized at higher altitudes.

The trail passes through Sagarmatha National Park, where you can see the diverse flora and fauna of the mountainous region. The itinerary includes two rest days for acclimatizing at Namche Bazaar and Dingboche, from where you can take amazing side trips to Hotel Everest View and Nangkartshang peak.

This incomparable trek takes in spiritual experience traversing the most renowned Buddhist monasteries, mani stones and trails covered with prayer flags, and ultimately Everest Base Camp.

Standing on the base of the world’s highest peak is itself an extraordinary achievement, and the trail doesn’t end here. The highlight includes Kala Patthar, where you can see the close-up panoramic views of Everest, Nuptse, Changtse, and other neighboring peaks.

Every year, thousands of travelers hike the Everest region to catch a glimpse of the world’s highest peaks and enjoy breathtaking views. It’s worth taking that travelers need to get a trekking permit and book through a registered trek agency/tour operator. Come and trek with us; we will take care of everything for you.
