One of the best trekking region that surpasses your expectations is Everest Base Camp trek, where four of the world's six loftiest peaks Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Cho Oyu rise above everything else, crowning the towering ridges that straddle the forbidding Himalayans. Everest's daunting summit soars so high that trekking to its base camp (17,590') is still an adventure of the highest sort. Moreover, the unique Sherpa culture, the visit to 500 years old Tengboche Monastery, the pristine wilderness of Sagarmatha National Park and the trek to Kala Patthar at an altitude of 5643 meters are purely sublime.

Everest Base Camp Trek regarded as the grandest walk in the land of the Himalayas begins in Lukla- the gateway to the Everest Region and ends with a stimulating walk to Everest Base Camp (5364 m). The trail passes through Sherpa villages interspersed with splendid rhododendron forest, magnolia and giant first offering the opportunities to go sightseeing around Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site that is home to a variety of Himalayan floras and faunas. We can also experience the exuberance of Namche Bazar- the capital of Sherpa and get a closer look at the highest Buddhist monasteries in the world, and, of course, the most gratifying of them all, the trip to Everest Base Camp itself.

The stunning trek to Everest Base Camp can be arranged in different durations for the trekkers. This 14 days itinerary is the most suitable trip specially designed keeping the subject of acclimatization and attraction in mind. There are many trekking spots worldwide, but nothing beats the thrill seeing the elegance of the mighty Everest up close. The BBC has listed "Everest Base Camp Trek" under the heading of "50 Places to See Before you die."

Trip Itinerary

Arrival at Kathmandu airport and transfer to the hotel. Stay overnight at hotel accommodation in Kathmandu

The first day of the trip starts after early-morning breakfast, where our guide will pick us up from the hotel and drive to the domestic airport terminal. Receive our boarding pass and fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2886m.) that takes about 35 minutes. The flight offers us up close views of the Himalayas and romantic landscapes of hills, farms and rivers.

On arrival to Lukla, we will begin 3 hours trek to Phakding (2640 m.). We start our trek from Lukla with a gentle climb up the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Koshi River. Mt. Nupla (5885m) which can be seen in the distance is a peak atop the Kongde Ridge. We descend a mountainside path that merges into our route to Everest, with views to a wonderful valley to our right; and Mt. Kusum Kang (6367m.) to the far end. At the end of the day, we stay overnight at lodge.

On second day, we trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m.)for approximately five hours.Namche Bazaar (3440m) is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges and faces the Bhote Koshi to the South. At the end of the day, we stay overnight at lodge.

On the third day, we take a day of rest at Namche Bazaar (3440 m) for acclimatization.It is an ideal place to spend time acclimatizing to the high altitude. For acclimatization, we walk up to Khumjung, where we can visit a monastery. We can also enjoy the splendid views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Nuptse, Lhotse, Tawoche, Kwangde, and so on. Or we can take an hour's walk up to Syangboche (3800 m), where the Everest View Hotel is situated above Namche for outstanding views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kusum Kangaru. At the end of the day, we stay overnight at the lodge.

On day four, we trek from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche (3867 m) for about five hours. As we climb through the forested woods, the incline eases, and a splendid view appears. We continue climbing the mountainside diagonally until we come to the stone gate built by the Lamas, which marks our entry into Tengboche (3860m). At the end of the day, we stay overnight at the lodge.

On day five, we trek from Tengboche to Dingboche (4260 m) for approximately five hours. Dingboche is a beautiful patchwork of fields enclosed by stone walls, protecting the crops of barley, buckwheat, and potatoes from the cold winds and grazing animals. At the end of the day, we stay overnight at the lodge.

On day six, we take a day rest at Dingboche (4260 m.) for acclimatization There are some breathtaking views of the north face of Ama Dablam and the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge as we explore this beautiful valley that leads up to Island Peak. The walk is short, giving you a good chance to relax in the afternoon. Another option is to hike up to Chhukum, where we can enjoy the panoramic view of Island Peak, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Tawoche Peak, and others. At the end of the day, we stay overnight at the lodge.

On seventh day, we trek from Dingboche to Lobuche (4930m.) that takes about five and a half hours.The onward journey leads north for up to 50 minutes until we come to a Mani-prayer Stupa. The trail follows a downward path to Pheriche village. Today's walk offers views of the Mt.Tawache, Ama Dablam and to the north-Pokalde (5741m), Kongma-tse (5820m) and the great wall of Nuptse. After two hours walk, the trail from Pheriche joins near Dugla (4595m) before a small wooden bridge over the river of Khumbu glacier. At the end of the day, we stay overnight at lodge.

On day eight, we trek from Lobuche to Everest Base Camp (5486 m) via Gorakshep (5180 m) and again back to Gorakshep for about seven hours.Trek up the valley following the rocky moraine path and view icy glacial ponds and icebergs down below the Khumbu glacier. Gorakshep is the location of the original Everest Base Camp, with the new camp being further up the valley. Now the trail winds through a rocky path and the Khumbu glacier. The view of Nuptse, Lho-La, and Khumbu Tse appears in front of us. At the end of the day, we stay overnight at the lodge.

On day nine, we trek from Gorakshep to Kala Patthar (5545 m) and then to Pheriche (4243 m) for about six hours.We accomplish an early morning climb to Kala Patthar (5545 m) and enjoy the views of the sunrise.

Thamserku, and many more. Yaks are normally used as four-legged porters in this area. At the end of the day, we stay overnight at the lodge.
