Everest Base Camp

A journey that epitomizes Himalayan adventures- Everest Base Camp Trek is possibly the most famous trek across the globe. The trek stretches through mountain passes and remote settlements to conclude at the foot of the Mt. Everest (8848m). With surreal views and exquisite trekking trails in the Khumbu Valley, one cannot help but admire the beauty of nature. Moreover, trekkers can relish warm Sherpa hospitality as they connect one ethnic village with another. All in all, Everest Base Camp Trek highlights both the natural and cultural beauty of the Everest region.

Mt. Everest- the tallest mountain in the world, is a great source of pride to Nepal and Nepalese. The mountain towers at an altitude of 8,848 meters in the northern part of Sagarmatha National Park. Also known as Sagarmatha in Nepali dialect, the mountain is revered as a sacred symbol in the country. As one of the most popular natural wonders in the world, Mt. Everest also housed many famous trekking trails. Everest Base Camp Trek is one of these journeys across its foothill that highlights the riches of the region.

Initially, the trip to Everest Base Camp starts from Kathmandu with a scenic flight to Lukla. Then, you gradually ascend across the Khumbu Valley to reach the base camp. From Lukla, you follow the Dudh Koshi River and reach Namche Bazaar. After spending a day at this wonderful town, you make way to Tengboche. The majestic Himalayas like Ama Dablam (6856m), Nuptse (7861m), and Island Peak (6189m) offer you a great company as you trek through numerous Sherpa villages. Further, you trek past Dughla and Lobuche to reach Gorakshep. Finally, you get to visit the Everest Base Camp and follow with another trek to Kalapatthar viewpoint. After relishing panorama of mountains like Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8485m), and Mt. Everest, you descend to Lukla.
