About Everest Base Camp Trek
“Everest Base Camp Trek – Father of all trekking”
Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal is considered as the father of all trekking. After all, it is the journey to the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain. Mt. Everest has always been the benchmark of all the superlatives in the world. This walking holiday in Nepal is probably the most legendary and worthwhile to create iconic events in anyone’s life.
Everest Base Camp Trek can be done by following different itineraries. Nowadays some trekkers prefer to walk up to base camp and return via helicopter as well. However, we have knitted the more traditional way of walking on this trail. It is the regular Lukla – Namche – Gorakshep – Everest Base Camp – Namche – Lukla route by walking.
Once you have landed in the world’s most extreme airport the Tenzing Hillary Airstrip Lukla, the walking journey starts. Walk through the hamlets, green lush coniferous forests and into the Sagarmatha National Park before achieving Namche Bazaar. The Khumbu marketplace can be reached once you have landed in Lukla after two days spending a night at Phakding or Manjo.
Acclimatization rest of one day is also done in Namche Bazaar. Trekkers will trek around the hill up to Everest View Hotel or Khumjung/Khunde Village. The sight of mountains like Kwangde, Kusum Kangaru, Thamserku, Amadablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, Tabuche and Everest make your day. Adjustment in high altitude is for the successful trekking. Therefore, it is mandatory to take a break for a day in Namche Bazaar.
Trekkers then take the route of spiritual monastery hill station hamlet of Tengboche and Pangboche to reach Dingboche. The village is the largest and least densely populated town/village in Everest Base Camp Trek route. Acclimatization is again done in the village before heading to Lobuche via Thukla Pass.
Once you have crossed the Lobuche pass the terrain starts to become rugged. The trail is through moraine and glacier towards Gorakshep which is the last teahouse on the route. Everest Base Camp Trek finally gets the final destination the Everest Base Camp. Leave your footprints and gather as many memories as possible while you stroll around the base camp.
Early morning hiking to Kalapathar (5545 m) offers breathtaking Himalayan sunrise experience. Gear up for the enthralling return trip as well.
