Everest Base Camp Trek is the ultimate footed journey in the highest mountain in of the world. Trekking in Everest provides you the opportunity like no other place in the world, as you travel to the base camp of large mountains in the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang and other high mountain regions. Journey to Everest Base Camp the first expedition team was trekked same route on 1953 Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey team.

An exhilarating flight to Lukla airport, trekking along one of the highest trails in the world, exposure to Sherpa culture and several other experiences make the base camp journey to Mount Everest memorable. Starting at the altitude of 1400 meters in Kathmandu, you rise above 5,545 meters at the top of Kala Patthar. From the top, the view of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse along with other peaks is simply beyond definition. You have to be there to experience it.

This ultimate Everest Base Camp journey passes along the historic and beautiful Sherpa villages, Sagarmatha National Park, ancient Monasteries, forests, rocky terrains, glacier and finally the base camp of Mount Everest.

Trekking in Everest Region is graded difficult while being praised widely for the majestic experience it provides – to walk and reach the altitude of over 5000 meters surrounded by the greatest mountains.

Starting the Everest Base Camp trek journey – the most popular and challenging trekking in Nepal

Mount Everest (8,848m) lies in the Solukhumbu District of Nepal. The high altitude mountain flight to Lukla airport provides abundant scenery of mountains and the hills throughout the journey. But before all that, spend a day in Kathmandu and tour the World Heritage Sites. Trekking in Nepal requires obtaining Everest Region Permit and TIMS Card. We will also need to do a final check on trekking equipments and do a briefing before we depart.

Mountains flights are organized early morning to take advantage of a good weather and an eye-catching flight experience. From Lukla, we trek for several days to reach the base camp and back, before flying back to Kathmandu.

Your group will consist of a trekking leader and co-leader (depending on group size), and porters. Most of our trekking guides and staff in the region are the local Sherpas. They are the native inhabitants of the Himalayan Region, and work as tea-house hosts, porters, trekking guides and trekking staff to cater the tourism industry. Due to their proximity with the trekking trails, trekkers and the mountains, they are regarded as super humans of the mountains and very useful in the trekking industry, specially in the Everest Region.

Trekking route, difficulty and itinerary in the Everest Base Camp Trek.

EBC trek, or Everest base camp trek, is the most wanted trekking route in the world. Trek to EBC offers not only the thrill and experience of the most adventurous trekking, but also the chance to meet the local Sherpa people and become immersed in their rich cultural heritage. The route follows the local trails used by the Sherpas living in various regions such as Lukla, Pheriche, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, and so on.

Trekking will get challenging as you stand at 2880 meters in Lukla. The terrain keeps ascending towards the base camp at a soaring height of 5830 meters. Hence, its a strenuous trip, and requires a lot of physical fitness and willingness to push yourself higher.

High Altitude Sickness (Acute Mountain Sickness) is a risk to be considered while trekking in the Everest as well as other high regions.

To prevent this, your should regularly exercise and involve in physical activities before the trek starts. While trekking, walking pace along with  acclimatization are necessary in order to further reduce the chance of getting it. However, a proper insurance (emergency evacuation and health cover) is recommended as well as mandatory.

The highest point that we travel is the top of Kala Patthar (5,545m). In fact, the view of Mount Everest is most significant from Kala Patthar than the base Camp. So, in order to achieve that, we do need to focus on the preparations and risks as mentioned above.

Read an extensive article on what Acute Mountain Sickness is and How you can counter it by following the link in the description.

Preparations, safety and Insurance during Everest Base Camp Trek

We spend a considerable amount of time to best prepare ourselves and our clients each time we leave for the mountain treks. For this particular trek, we provide experienced guides, porters to share loads, first aid kit, duffel bags and coordination in case of emergency. Trekkers are asked to cover themselves with reliable insurance (that includes medical evacuation during emergency). We stay at two different towns for avoiding the risks of altitude sickness. Further, the trekking leader is skilled and trained to act swifty to help you overcome such obstacles.

With the first visible symptom of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), trekkers should immediately descend to lower region and take rest. In extreme cases, a helicopter evacuation is also organized.

While trekking, it is wise to follow the footsteps of the trekking leader and follow instructions on safety and trekking protocols. Proper preparation helps us provide enjoyable experience to our clients in a safe environment.
