The Everest Base Camp trek is the most famous trekking destination in the world it provides you with opportunities to take in some truly amazing views from the roof of the world. The trek also gives an insight into the lives and culture of the Sherpa people who are local to the area and closely linked to the Tibetans. The view of the sunrise on the snow capped peaks above the Khumbu Glacier is an unforgettable sight from the summit of Kala Patthar. Everest base camp trek requires physical fitness as it demands some challenging climbs on the trail.Our itinerary is considered fully acclimatize before reaching Everest Base. A lot of the trail has well graded paths, however there are pretty tough sections along the Khumbu glacier where utmost care is required.
The most highlight of the trek is awe-inspiring view from the summit of Kala Patthar, Superb closet view of Mt.Everest, Nupte and down to Khumbu glacier.
There are lots of options to access Everest base camp, however most of the trekkers fly to Lukla from Kathmandu or follow the clasical trail Jiri to Everest Base Camp and fly out from Lukla. It will be good for acclimitisation to start from Jiri.
