Everest Base Camp trek - 15 days
Nepal Trekking, Trekking in Nepal, Base Camp Trek in Nepal
This special version of the trek to Everest Base Camp is designed for anyone who is very fit and has some trekking experience. The route to base camp is the same as the longer trek but with a faster pace that requires one less day on the ascent to base camp and two less days on the descent.
Highlights of the trek
The trek reveals some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Himalayas. The trail follows the course of the Dudh Kosi, the ‘River of Milk’, gradually climbing through forests of rhododendron and magnolia. There are rest days at Namche Bazaar (the Sherpa capital) and at Dingboche village (set below the spectacular peak of Ama Dablam) – to help adjust to the altitude. By the time, you reach Lobuche the temperature will have dropped and you will be walking among frozen rivers in an icy wilderness next to the Khumbu Glacier, and finally to base camp itself. The next day brings you to the final highlight – Kala Patar peak (5545m) with stunning views of Mt. Everest and surrounding Himalayan peaks.
