Overview of Everest Base Camp Trek

The typical 15 days Everest Base Camp Trek in the Khumbu Region lets you explore the untethering beauty of Mt. Everest. Not only will you experience the beautiful base camp, but also explore natural flora and fauna alongside manmade landmarks, Sherpa culture and tradition that’s influenced by Tibet, and much more.

The EBC trek begins with a scenic flight to Lukla for an adventurous flight. During your 30 mins flight, you’ll get some of the best views of Everest and other peaks of the mountain range. Enjoy a day in Phakding located on the banks of Dudh Koshi before making it to Namche Bazaar, where we’ll stay for two days.

Before we get to Namche, our trail stops for a bit at Monjo, the entry point of the Sagarmatha National Park, to check our trekking permits. On our second day at Namche, we’ll visit a nearby village to explore its cultural values or if you want a break, we can also visit the marketplace there.

Onto the trek, we’ll encounter prayer flags, chortens, and even one of the country’s oldest monasteries, the Tengboche Monastery. Acclimatize to the high altitude in Dingboche where we can either hike to Nagarjuna Hill to get amazing views of the peaks such as Makalu, Cho Oyu, and Ama Dablam, or explore the village of Chukhung.

Getting to Gorakshep is not much of a big deal but the next day is, as we summit the 5545 meters Kala Patthar, from where we’ll get the best views of Everest and hike all the way to EBC. Cherish the moment, and trek back to villages like Periche, Namche, and Lukla to fly back to Kathmandu and end our journey.

This trail is moderate if you want an easier trek to refer back to our trips in the Everest Region such as the Everest View Trek or the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour.

The Everest Base Camp trek is a popular trek in Nepal that takes you to the base of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest. The trek takes about 10 to 21 days and requires physical fitness and good acclimatization.

Here are some of the things you can expect during the trek:

  • Scenic Views: The trek offers stunning views of the Himalayan peaks, including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and others.
  • Physical challenge: The trek involves walking for several hours every day at a high altitude, which can be physically demanding.
  • Altitude Sickness: As you gain altitude, you may experience symptoms of altitude sickness such as headache, fatigue, and shortness of breath.
  • Basic Accommodation: During the trek, you will stay in teahouses or lodges with basic facilities.
  • Cultural Experience: The trek passes through the traditional Sherpa villages, giving you an opportunity to learn about the local culture and way of life.

Hydration: Staying hydrated is important for preventing altitude sickness and for overall health during the trek. Make sure to drink plenty of water and electrolyte-rich drinks.

Mental preparation: The trek can be mentally challenging, especially at high altitudes. It’s important to have a positive attitude, be open to new experiences, and be prepared for the challenges that you may face during the trek.

Research and Planning: Before starting the trek, research the trail, the weather conditions, and the teahouses or lodges along the way. Consider hiring a local guide or porter to help with navigation and carrying your gear.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees.

And but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath
