Everest Base Camp Trek - 15 Days
The Everest Base Camp Trek is undoubtedly the
definitive trek in the Himalayas. It is one of
the most famous trails not only in Nepal, but in
the world. Place yourself in history by hiking
along the same path that Edmund Hillary and
Tenzing Norgay walked as they made their famous
ascent to the summit of Mount Everest (8848
meters / 29,029 feet). The trek is sure to wear
you out, but the tiresome feeling is temporary.
The sense of achievement that you feel when you
reach base camp lasts forever. On the Everest
Base Camp Trek, each day brings a new level of
adventure and a completely new mountain
perspective. From the very first day, the
excitement begins. The flight from Kathmandu to
Lukla (via the most dangerous airport in the
world - Tenzing-Hillary Airport) is quite the
thrill. Breathe in the clean air as you make your
way towards Namche Bazaar. Just before reaching
this trekker hub, your heart rate rises as you
catch your first glimpse of Mount Everest. Before
you know it, the time comes to ascend to Everest
Base Camp (5380 meters). Admire the famous Khumbu
Icefall and panoramic Mountain View. Though, the
best view is yet to come. The following day, we
hike even further up to Kala Patthar (5545
meters). From this tip top point, you have what
is considered the best viewpoint of Mount Everest
in the entire Himalaya. Throughout the trek, you
will also get amazing views of Ama Dablam,
Lhotse, Makalu, and many more soaring peaks. Of
course, the mountain views of the Everest region
are out of this world and they are the main
reason why people visit the area. However, the
Everest region would not be what it is today
without Sherpas. The Solu-Khumbu region is home
to this ethnic group - Buddhists that migrated
from the Tibetan plateau in the 15th century.
They are known not only for their unprecedented
climbing abilities, but also for their
2
genuine hospitality. Take the Everest Base Camp
Trek for the mountain views and become captivated
by the delightful Sherpa people. Ask us about any
special happenings during the year in the Khumbu
region to add some more excitement to the
journey. For example, the festival Mani Rimdu is
takes place at Tengboche Monastery during the 9th
month of the Tibetan calendar, which usually in
October or November during the full moon. We can
arrange for you to be there during this time. You
do not need anything mountaineering experience,
nor do you need any background in tent camping to
give this once in a lifetime trek a chance. All
you need is strong self-confidence and willpower
to make it to the top. You do not need a certain
level of fitness to finish. All you need is a
slow and steady pace, which our itinerary allows
for.
You can take the Everest Base Camp Trek all
throughout the year. The best times to make the
trip, though, are during the spring (March to
May) and autumn (September to November) seasons.
These seasons provide the best weather and
clearest skies, not to mention that during the
springtime, rhododendron and other alpine flowers
are in bloom.
