Overview

The ultimate trek to the top of the world, the Everest Base Camp Trek is a bucket list trek for adventurers. The 14-day journey through the Himalayas takes you to the highest mountains in the world, and if you’re physically fit and up for the challenge, it’s one of the most incredible experiences of your life. You’ll trek through an astonishing landscape, from forests to glaciers and high passes, and see parts of the Himalayas that most tourists never get the chance to see. 

This trek is the most extreme trek that the average person can take on. It takes about eight days and covers an average of more than 17,000 feet in elevation. As the highest mountain on Earth, the trek has several complex challenges for many hikers. In addition to the altitude, there are a number of other factors that must be taken into account to ensure that the trek is achieved safely.

The journey to EBC begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The aerial view is pleasant throughout the flight. A crew of guides and porters leads the way to Namche Bazaar, a small Sherpa hamlet. The day at Namche requires a pause in order to adjust to the rising altitude before continuing to Tengboche the next day. With its spiritual and tranquil surroundings, visiting the well-known Tengboche monastery provides peace to the mind. The experience continues with a stop at Dingboche, the next stop for acclimatization.

With each passing day, the trail advances towards Lobuche, Gorakshep, and EBC. The spectacular vistas of the Mountains, glaciers, alpine woods, rocky and steep slopes, pasture fields, and so on will enchant you during the voyage. The trail takes on new significance after seeing Mt. Everest up close to Kala Patthar. After a few days of trekking, you’ll return to Lukla along the same route. The voyage comes to an end when you arrive in Kathmandu.

Nepal Mountain Adventure has the perfect travel packages for you based on your schedules and interests. We supply you with the most up-to-date information and advice about the trek and professional guides and lodging while on the trek. We’d be delighted to take you on an adventurous tour.
