Everest trek is famous around the world for Everest Base Camp EBC trek. Everest trek goes through the adventure villages in the Everest region which is popularly known as the Khumbu region.
Taking part in a trekking holiday allows you access to remote areas and villages, to the mountains and to a culture so different to our own, one that has changed little over the years and whose customs have been passed down through generations. Much has been documented about the traditional hospitality of the Nepalese people in general and the mountain people in particular. Trekkers can experience their friendliness at first hand and have the opportunity to see and try to understand a little of this culture so different to our own.
The trek is conducted at a reasonably relaxed pace along rough but well used trails taking into account the altitude, allowing ample time to photograph the magnificent scenery and observe the wildlife and to meet the people. Rest days are included to assist our acclimatisation as we climb higher into the mountains. A friendly and efficient service is offered by our Sherpa guides on the trail, most of whom speak English and all our treks will be personally led by ourselves or leaders, both Sherpa and British, specially chosen for their experience of trekking, people whom we personally know and trust.
We provide all the camping equipment on trek, this is all organised by our head Sherpa, or Sirdar, and the food is hygienically prepared by trained cooks. All our main equipment is carried by porters or pack animals, because of the altitude you will only be expected to carry a day sack with your immediate needs, plus of course your camera; your other equipment will be carried by porters and will be with you at the end of the day.
Guides and porters also accompany all of our Lodge Treks. With food and accommodation being provided by the lodges along the trail this allows us to offer very flexible services. For small numbers and groups, and for those who just prefer, this offers an alternative to camping.
By employing Sherpa people in this way we are helping their economy and also upholding traditions that have developed over many years to give you the freedom to enjoy your surroundings, the culture and the people.
Getting to the Everest Region
Since, we are only going to trek in the region; you will not have to go through any tedious special permits to enter the region unless you are also planning for climbing the peaks. However, a nominal entry fee is still payable to get access to the ‘Everest National Park, which is the most, visited part of the region. The National park also home to ‘legendary Sherpas’ was established mainly to protect the fragile environment of the Alpine region!
Whichever path you choose to get to the Everest, you can be rest assured to experience the amazingly beautiful scenic beauty. The region has interesting places to explore in every corner; to the east of the Everest National Park is the Makalu – Barun National park, a remote and wild stretch of snow-white mountain peaks and densely forested valleys. To the west if the Rolwaling valley, a well-protected sphere of culture and nature and towards the south of the region lies ‘Solu’, visited by very less tourists; still a rewarding destination in its own right.
If you want to trek to the east of the main ‘Everest trail’, you’ll have to get an extra permit to enter the other equally spectacular national park, ‘Makalu-Barun National Park’. We at Skyline trek and expedition have years of experience operating successful treks in the Everest region, so if need help planning or making it to the Everest region, you can simply send us an email with your queries and we will help you organize an unforgettable trek for you in the Everest region.
