Everest Base Camp Trekking

Everest Base Camp Trekking

Everest Trek:

 
Everest Base Camp Trek  is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. It is a memorable journey towards the foot of Mt. Everest (8848m), the highest mountain in the world. This is a classic trail that follows in the footsteps of Edmund Hillary & Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. The major highlight of the Everest Base Camp Trek is the hike to Everest Base Camp, located at an altitude of 5364m, to see the glorious south face of Mt. Everest. 
 
Everest Base Camp Trek begins with a short, scenic and adventurous fight to Lukla. It is only a matter of a day or two before you reach Namche, the capital of Sherpa community, where you will be able to enjoy Sherpa culture and hospitality. The visit to Tengboche Monastery, one of the biggest monasteries in the Himalayan region, will allow you to capture beautiful and spectacular view of Mt. Ama Dablam. The climax of this trek is the hike up to Kalapathar that provides breathtaking views of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pumori among others. 
 
The trekking trail is adorned with mani walls, chortens and monasteries. Much of the the trail further passes through the Sagarmatha National Park which is home to a rich and well protected biodiversity. The forest of firs, junipers, birch, rhododendron, blue pines harbours such wild and rare birds and animals as Monal, Blood Pheasant, Chough, Red Panda, Langur Monkeys, Martens and Wolves. 
 
Everest Base Camp trek can be done in different durations depending on your time, interest and budget. Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition have successfully led many trekking trips to Everest Base Camp (EBC). We have a team of highly experienced, well equipped, well insured and friendly local trekking guides and porters who will accompany you throughout your journey..
