  • EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK (15 Days)

    AN OVERVIEW
    The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the wonder of the world for Mountain & Adventure lovers who wish to reach one day on the feet of the world tallest peak on the Earth. The Everest base camp trek is a great introductory lodge trek that offers sensational mountain views and an insight into the lives of the Sherpa people.

    After exploring the temples, shrines, bazaars and restaurants of Kathmandu we take an exciting mountain flight to Lukla and trek up the Dudh Kosi Valley, surrounded by the soaring peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. It is a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, capital of the Sherpa, where we are again greeted by spectacular mountain vistas. A rest day here aids acclimatization.

    We trek along a high traversing path where we have our first good views of Everest and then head towards Tengboche Monastery, which is a 2-hour climb. The monastery sits at 3867m in a clearing surrounded by dwarf firs and rhododendrons. The monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. The view from this spot, seen to best advantage in the morning, is absolutely mesmerizing and stunning and is rightly deemed to be one of the most magnificent in the world. Villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it the kind of walk you will remember for a long, long time.

    We then descend to the Imja Khola and continue to the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche before finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. We then follow the glacier, first to Lobuche, advantage point for some spectacular views of the ‘Ama Dablam, Taweche and other peaks and then hike to Gorak Shep. The next day excursion to the Mt. Everest Base Camp has been a popular destination for trekkers & climbers since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in the 1953.
