Adventure Tours, Guided Tours, Tour Operators
Everest Base Camp Trek reveals some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Himalayas. After exploring Kathmandu, you fly to Lukla where your trek to Everest begins. 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 delightful 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 Loboche the temperature will have dropped and you will be walking among frozen rivers in an icy wilderness. From here, you make the trek to Base Camp itself – at the foot of the world’s highest peak. The next day brings you to the final highlight – Kalar Patar (5545m) with stunning views of Everest and the Khumbu Glacier cascading below.
Highlights of the trek
Panoramic view from Syangbuche, experiencing Sherpa culture in Khumjung village and Tengboche Monastery. Views of Mt. Everest from Kala Pattar peak.
