Overview

Everest Base Camp trek is arguably the most attractive trekking route in the world. Everest Base Camp is situated at 5364m above sea level. The route follows footsteps of Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary, the first summitter. The trail offers breathtaking panoramic views of mountains and is also an achievement of a lifetime. A short flight to Lukla marks the start of the Everest Base Camp Trek. The distance of Everest Base Camp from Lukla is 65km. The trail of Namche Bazaar goes along the banks of Dudhkoshi River in a valley surrounded by soaring mountains of Thamserku, Kusum Kangaroo etc. Namche Bazaar is the center trading town of Khumbu region.

During the acclimatization day in Namche, we explore around the town to be habituated to the thin air. We hike up to Syangboche airport, Everest View Hotel which is at a similar height of Tengboche. Tenzing Hillary park and mountain museum is the best attraction of Namche Bazar. The stones from the lowest and highest place around the world are keeping in the museum.

We follow the trail onwards to Tengboche, a religious place of Buddhism. The monastery of Tengboche comes abuzz for famous festivals like Mani Rimdu which falls on the 9th month of Tibetan calendar. The inspiring place gives the views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Kangtega. En route to Everest Base Camp Trek, we will see yak farms, mountain goats, and also Himalayan Thar if we’re lucky. We cross over to the Dingboche valley, then past Memorial Pass called Thukla, and treading on rocky trails by Khumbu Glacier, we reach Gorakshep. Walking in the thin air of high Himalayas is adventurous and also a lifetime achievement.

We provide departure from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp every week. Best private departure for family, couple and solo trekkers is provided. In private departure, you can customize the trip according to your needs. Gokyo valley to Everest Base Camp is the best alternative to only Everest Base Camp.

Important Trip Info

In Nepal, there are two kinds of transport, public and private. We mostly recommend you to use the private than the public because the roads two ways that make traffic, and the private vehicle can avoid the traffic by choosing the proper time for less traffic.

Most of the activities in Nepal is in the high Himalaya. Where you can to think about the very quality of accommodation. The mountain lodge/ tea houses are least facilitate with neat and clean. However, in the cities, there are multiple options to chose the hotel from general guesthouse to a five-star hotel.

In Nepal, you will get the extensive food menu. From the international food menu to local foods. Dal Bhat is the main course of Nepal. Your guide will help you to choose the suitable food, on the trek and tour.

Trekking is the popular trekking ventures in Nepal, which is always in the High Himalaya and where we have the chance to get altitude sickness. So, it is highly recommended to learn more about the High Altitude Sickness before you start the trek. Hurry can be deadly in Nepal Himalaya. Walk slow, and give enough time to your body to fit in the high altitude. Drinking more water and stepping slowly with rest is the best protection against altitude sickness.

It is necessary to have travel insurance before you embark on any trip. The insurance policy should include the cost of medical expenses, any damage or loss of your luggage, and cancellation.

Nepal is one of the safe and more peaceful countries around the world. Even though you must have your Travel Insurance and the should cover the area which is on your itinerary.

Traveling is the way of getting in touch with the local peoples. It is important to recognize what is acceptable in the society, such as dresses, behaviors, and language. There might be different than your own country. Most of the people can communicate in English in the cities and also some touristy towns but if you have learned a few words Nepali, like greetings “Namaste” that make a huge difference.
