A wide range of Himalayas lying in the Everest region of northern Nepal outcomes most of the trekking spots all over the world. This range of Himalayas reckons four of the world’s six highest peaks; Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Cho Oyu, rewarding Nepal as ‘Roof of the World’. If you like to walk and crave for a trek with outstanding mountain views, the Everest Base Camp Trek can get you to the top of the list. This ultimate breathtaking challenge will beat the rest of the unedifying adventures.
Our Everest Base Camp Trek allows a wide range of sightseeing of the mountains and a highlighting chance of getting into the lives of the Sherpa people where we get to know about their cultures too. The Trek also offers exploring the Sagarmatha National Park, a World Heritage Site, getting a closer look at world’s famous Boudha Monasteries and meeting neighborly smiling people.
This trek starts from the upper region of Phakding. Following Dudh Koshi valley we climb up to the Namche Bazaar. This place is ideal for trekkers, tourists, the local Sherpas there and people who want to view a fine landscape of the Everest Region. Here, we will be travelling through the roof of the world. Besides, the Rhododendron forests and snow-capped floors in this area are so enduring to watch.
From Namche Bazaar, we go through high altitudes and chilly weather. After two hours of climbing, we reach Tyangboche Monastery which is located at an altitude of 3,867 m. This monastery resides on the top of a ridge. It provides a divine view of Sagarmatha. From here, we move towards our destination following Imja Khola, Pangboche and Pheriche villages and get to Khumbu glacier after a few hours of trekking. Beyond this glacier we reach Lobuche where we can rest for some time and admire the exquisite design of nature. We then move towards Gorakshep. From this point we forward to Kalapathar [5,554m] and to the Everest Base Camp. This last phase of trek is the toughest one. It’s very difficult to reach Kalapathar and to the Camp site. The altitude here is very high which lacks the amount of oxygen for your lungs. And also, walking and climbing through elevation is not an easy job to do. However, all these troubles are worth getting through when you feel that the dream to conquer Everest is lying under your feet.
