Everest Base Camp Trek


Everest Base Camp Trek

Adventurers from around the world have long dreamed of setting their eyes on Mt. Everest, the unquestioned Himalayan jewel. Mt Everest was named after Sir George Everest and is popularly known as 'Sagarmatha' in Nepali. Everest Base Camp Trek is the incredible terminus for those who want to see the magnificent view of the world's tallest mountain at a height of 8,848.86 m. The EBC lies in the Khumbu Valley which itself is a perfect tourism destination around the globe for visitors. It is the birthplace to strong Sherpas and enigmatic Peaks such as Ama Dablam (6,812m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,463,m), Pomari (7,161 ,m), Nuptse (7,855m), and other high peaks. Our EBC trek starts at the busy town of Lukla (2,828m) located in the Khumbu region. With a vivid array of sacred artwork and the majestic Himalayan background, the Buddhist monastery in this region is without a doubt one of the trek's highlights. The trek parallels the elevating Dudh Koshi River along with the Rhododendron Mountains. Along the road, some endangered species including Blue Sheep, Musk Deer and various species of birds such as the Himalayan Pheasant, Danphe and Munal are likely to be spotted. We then continued the trip reaching Namche Bazaar which is popular among trekkers, especially for altitude acclimatization. The path continues from Namche Bazaar to the valley below Everest via Imja Khola River. Then, taking the conventional path through Lobuche and Gorak Shep, the trail leads you to the destination, Everest Base Camp. We then ascended Kalapatthar, after reaching the EBC, to discover the panoramic views of Mt. Everest and the other Himalayas. Join with us in this Everest Base Camp Trek-a rare combination of cultural splendour, untouched forest and unrivalled natural beauty.

Day 9: Trek from Dingboche to Lobuche (4,940m/16,203ft)

From here onward, the trek will move more gradually be more challenging, due to the higher altitude. We’ll pass Dungla (Thukla), but not before a tough, steep walk to the top of a high hill. At the top hill small chorten can be seen. It is a memorial stupas dedicated to the climbers and trekkers who lost their lives to Everest over the years. The next part of our adventure brings over craggy mountain terrain to Lobuche, a small settlement with amazing views of Mt. Lobuche, Mt. Pumari and the Nuptse.

In the Gorkshep, you will take delicious lunch and hike for Kalapathar (5644m) if the weather is clear. Kala Pathar hill provides perhaps the best view of Mt. Everest in the Nepal Himalaya. Mornings are usually sparkling clear, and this is the best time to make a ascent. For many people this is the highlight of their trek, but cloud can roll in quickly, obscuring the peaks.

Day 13: Trek from Tengboche to Monjo (2,835m/9,298ft)

So many experiences and emotions for this trip. I cant explain the sense of achievement at making it to EBC and the emotion of having to leave by helicopter with Parker. I so appreciate the attentiveness to details of all the sherpa team. You really care that people have an amazing experience. It is a trip I will never forget. The places we have seen , the people on the team, the care of all of you have changed me. Keep doing what you do. God has given you an opportunity to touch people with your kindness.
