Overview

Trekking to Everest Base camp can be a thrilling and adventurous journey for those who seek pleasure in hiking and exploring nature through mountainous trails. Reaching the base of the world’s tallest peak, the Mount Everest that stands 8,848 m/29,025ft., is once in a lifetime experience. The exotic beauty of snow-capped peaks and icy trails once marched through by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, will surely leave you with a sense of fulfilment and achievement after days of walking.

The journey starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From Lukla, the expedition on foot begins. One must be in sound health with good physical fitness to start out on an arduous journey. As the trek is off 14 days, carrying your bags considering the weight is a must. Our travel guide and porter will accompany you along the way to ensure your safety, comfort, and fun.

The trail to Everest Base Camp passes through Sherpa villages where you will receive warm hospitality from the Sherpas, often known as mighty climbers. Local hot beverages are served at tea houses along the way with traditional Nepali cuisine. They are sure to fill your taste buds with some unique flavours. Although the community life is not so prosperous, the service they provide is homely and welcoming. Ancient monasteries are seen decorated with prayer wheels and prayer flags which exhibit the religious inclination of Sherpa people towards Buddhist culture.

The vast expanse of the mountainous beauty of Mount Lhotse, Mount Makalu, Mount Cho yo among others, welcome you along the way. Red rhododendron bushes and pine trees add more colour to the walk. Rare species of flora and fauna can be spotted along Sagarmatha National Park, the UNESCO world heritage site. The park is home to rare and endangered species like red panda, wolf, snow leopard and musk deer. Being at the altitude of 5,364 m at the Everest Base Camp (EBC) gives you utmost pleasure and satisfaction accompanied by the thrill of being nearest to the world’s tallest peak. The view of Mount Everest from Kala Patthar is closest and amazing. The breathtaking views with a blend of nature at this highest altitude leave you with serene joy.
