Our Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most popular and classic trek of Nepal. The highlights of our trip include the spectacular Khumbu Glacier, the fast flowing Imja river and the culturally rich town of Namche Bazaar. Our trek helps us to experience forested mountain wilderness & the ancient cultural norms of Tibetan Buddhism. You can also marvel at the blessed monasteries, view the Himalayan mountains and cross many suspension bridges. Besides that, you can even observe the daily lifestyle of the ethnic communities who call this mystical region their homeland.

After landing in Kathmandu, you will visit some of the great historical sites of Kathmandu valley. We will take you to the Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath temple, the ancient Buddhist shrines of Boudhanath & Swayambhunath Stupa. We will then leave Kathmandu with a flight to Lukla, the gateway to Everest region. From here we begin our trek and head towards Namche Bazaar (3,440m). Moreover, Namche Bazaar is not just a popular place for trekkers to rest and relax. It’s also perfect place to spend a day or two for acclimatization.

Moving on, we carry our bags once again and move to other Sherpa settlements of Tengboche (3,860m) and Dingboche (4,410m). Then continue walking further to Lobuche and Gorakshep, the highest accommodation point of our trek. And, from here we begin our final ascent to EBC which sits at 5,364 m. But prior to this, you will have the opportunity to hike up to the top of Kalapatthar (5,545m). Trekkers can witness the tantalizing views of the imposing peak of Mount Everest along with other stunning Himalayan massifs. After exploring the EBC, we now descend our way down to Pheriche and Namche Bazaar. Before ultimately reaching Lukla town for a flight back to Kathmandu.

Our 13 days EBC Trek requires trekkers to have good physical fitness level. As they need to walk on a rough Himalayan terrain for about 5-6 hours a day. Moreover, doing some prior preparations such as cardiovascular activities will make the trip all the more pleasing for you. Or, if you want your Everest Trek to be simple, easy and luxury, then we offer the Everest View Luxury Trip as well. So, don’t wait any longer!

This day is set aside for rest and acclimatization before heading further up the valley.

We reach Gorakshep which is the final accommodation and food stop at the foothill of KalaPatthar.
