Everest Base Camp Trek is an unbelievable experience that will introduce you to stunning views of the highest mountains in the Himalayas, including Everest and Ama Dablam. Everest Base Camp Trekking is defined as The Giant of Giants. This is also among the classic treks of the world. Since Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay summitted Everest in 1953, many trekkers have visited The Land of the Sherpa, resulting in this trail evolving into one of the most popular trekking destinations in the world today. It offers so much more than trekking through an extraordinary landscape with Himalayan views. It’s a cultural and spiritual adventure as well. It has the potential to be life-changing. One of the considerable highlights of Everest Base Camp Trekking is Sagarmatha National Park, a UNISCO World Heritage site, Which is famous for Himalayan flora and fauna including musk deer, Derow, Ghoral and Himalayan Thar as well as red-billed chough, impheyan pheasant, blood pheasant and yellow-billed chough. The Himalayan flora here shelters these birds and wildlife.

The trek commences with a sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, UNESCO World Heritage site, a cultural, religious and historical sites visit and then an exciting flight to the mountain airstrip takes us to Lukla from Kathmandu. The airport at Lukla was built by Edmund Hillary and he named it the Tenzing Hillary Airport after himself and his famous Sherpa guide. From there, we will follow in the footprints of famous mountaineers for the walk into Everest Base Camp. You will see colorful prayer flags and a number of monasteries along the way, as you will find yourself in the middle of the Buddhist Sherpa country.

The entire Everest Base Camp Trekking has been planned in a way that it includes sufficient time for the essential altitude acclimatization. This means spending a day climbing high then coming back down to sleep. We want you to succeed on this trek so all precautions are taken by our experienced crew to minimize the risk of suffering from altitude sickness. This sickness can severely impact on your trekking experience.

Our route to Everest Base Camp Trekking will guide you through beautiful Sherpa villages in the Khumbu region (also known as Everest region). Namche Bazaar is the colorful and vibrant heart of Sherpa country. The trek will also give you an opportunity to visit the main monasteries at Tengboche and Pangboche. Further, the trail through Sagarmatha National Park will be an astonishing experience.  The highlight of this trekking itinerary will be the walk up to the top of Kala Patthar – from there you can get spectacular panoramic views of the famous mountains – Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse.

The Everest Base Camp Trekking trails through some of the most fabulous scenery and through small villages, giving you a strong sense of how the local peoples have adapted to life in this unique part of the world. This entire trek will give you limitless photographic* opportunities as well as be inspiring Himalayan views, you will experience Khumbu Glacier, junipers and alpine scrub of the Sherpa region, and rhododendron forests of the beautiful valleys.

 * Battery life in sub-zero temperatures is compromised. Keep your camera batteries warm, above zero degrees centigrade. A good idea is to sleep with them at night, in or under your sleeping bag.

Day 01:Arrive in Kathmandu(1,300m/4,264 ft)

Namaste! Info Nepal Treks and Expedition heartily welcomes you to the city of temples – Kathmandu. We will meet you at the Tribhuvan International Airport. Our office representative will be there holding placard on which either client’s or company's name will be printed just opposite of the arrival and after your reception, we will drive to the hotel. After your arrival at the hotel, we fix the schedule for a short orientation meeting which gives you some general information about the trip and you will settle rest of the due payment at the same time. For this, you have to be with 3 P.P. size photographs, a copy of passport and copy of travel insurance.

Day 02: Sight-seeing around Kathmandu 

we will show you around the UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites of Bashantapur Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, and Swoyambhunath, Boudhanath, and Swoyambhunath. Kathmandu is a living museum and Bashantapur Durbar Square is the jewel of its crown. This site covers five acres in the heart of Kathmandu and truly portrays the ancient face of Nepal with its rich cultures and traditions. The palace called Hanuman Dhoka is the center of attractions here. Temples include Kumari Ghar, a house where living goddesses reside.Despite the damage caused by the earthquake of 25th April 2015, this historical site maintains its charm while reconstruction work continues. 

After roaming Durbar Square we drive to Pashupatinath Temple. Pashupatinath is a popular site for Hindu worshipers.  Lord Shiva is enshrined here, in the form of Linga known as ‘Shiva Linga’. The temple is built in pagoda style and is located on the banks of the Bagmati River. It is reported that more than one million Hindus visit here at the time of Shiva Ratri – Lord Shiva’s birthday. Cremations are carried out on the banks of the river. There is time to look around. Visit some of the beautiful welcoming monasteries. Most of the inhabitants follow Buddhism. Bouddhanath Stupa is located nearby. It is an octagonal mandala structured stupa where Lord Buddha is believed to have worshipped. This is a holy site for Buddhists. The stupa is the largest in southern Asia and local people and tourists alike flock here to socialize and pray. The atmosphere is colorful and relaxed and you could find yourself visiting here more than once. Bouddhanath is also known as ‘Little Tibet’ because the surrounds resemble Tibet, with Tibetan culture and traditions on display.

Swoyambhunath is another popular Hindu and Buddhist site where more than 100,000 tourists visit every year. Like Bouddhanath, many monks pray here counting beads and rotating prayer wheels. It is located on a hill and offers spectacular views of the Kathmandu valley. Swoyambhunath is also known as the Monkey Temple and is home to many monkeys. The dome here has a pyramid-shaped metal structure on top. At the base of that metal structure are the eyes of Buddha in all four directions.Swoyambhunath means ‘Self-Existing’, describing that when the valley was empty, Swoyambhu was already here. Legend says that the civilization of Kathmandu Valley began with Swoyambhunath.Back to the hotel,

On the hike, we capture our first glimpses of Everest and neighboring peaks.Overnight at Namche Bazaar

Day 05: Acclimatization Day

Today is a kind of leisure day with a purpose. It is essential that you prepare your body for the low-oxygen environment that exists at higher altitudes. Altitude sickness can not only impact on your trekking comfort, it can stop you from trekking any further. We want you to succeed on this trek so we include these ‘acclimatization days’ into the itinerary to prepare you for high altitude.
