Everest base camp trekking Overview
Ever since Sir. Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay first ascended the Mount Everest in the 1950s’ from the Nepalese part of the mountain; thousands of daring hearts have flocked to the region to explore the serene beauty of the region. Also, known a ‘trek to EBC’, Everest base camp trek is the most popular trekking routes of the Everest region.
Our package to the Everest Base Camp trek is 16 days long, which ideally commences from a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Once we land at Lukla, we trek up to the Dudh Koshi Valley, enclosed by the sky-high peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. It’s a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, capital of the Khumbu Sherpa’s, where we get bestowed with the breathtakingly beautiful mountain sceneries. A rest day here aids acclimatization and there are great optional walks to explore and enjoy the rich culture of the local people. The trail then follows the famous Tengboche, located high on a ridge where a splendid 360 degree panorama awaits. The views of Mighty Everest, ‘the Lhotse Nuptse wall, AmaDablam and Kantega dominates this tranquil and spiritual site. The early morning view from Tengboche is absolutely superlative and mesmerizing that captivates you with its memories that lasts a lifetime.
