For global adventurers who prefer trekking, the Everest Base Camp Trek is the mother of all treks. It is because the trail will bring you at the point—EBC—where there you stand at one end and the majestic tower of the world—Mt. Everest—at the other.
This Mecca of all treks has almost everything to attract trek enthusiasts globally. From winding rivers to greenery and the splendid view of mesmerising peaks to glaciers, everything witnessed will hypnotise you. Why? It is because the natural beauty of the region is still unspoiled and is in the purest form. Additionally, the friendly Sherpa people and their unique culture and traditions are other important characteristics of the trek due to which adventurers put EBC trek in their travel bucket list as a must-do event of a lifetime.
Trekking to EBC begins from Lukla—the gateway to EBC—where we reach by air from Kathmandu. It is a scenic flight of less than half an hour. Experiencing flight to Lukla is not less than an adventure as you will be flying in between hills. The Airport—Tenzing-Hillary Airport—itself is one the most beautiful and scariest airstrips of the world.
In Lukla, we manage porter who will be carrying your luggage throughout the trek—EBC and back. Walking on an uneven rocky path, we cross Phakding, Monjo, Namche Bazar, Khumjung, Phortse, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorak Shep to arrive at Everest Base Camp.
Considering guests’ safety at first, you will be having a couple of days leisure in this trek as this will minimise the chances of being arrested by altitude sickness. This will help you to acclimatise with the gaining elevation.
The first acclimatisation will be in Namche Bazar and the second in Dingboche.
While on the way to EBC, we will lead you through Khunde Valley. It will not only present you with an awe-inspiring natural beauty of Khumbu but also make your hike relatively easy. How? You will be walking on a relatively flat path that will lead you to Dingboche via Mong La and Phortse.
As we move ahead, the greenery disappears gradually as we reach Khumbu Glacier moraines. After crossing Lobuche, we reach Gorak Shep followed by EBC. It (Lobuche) is the last village with human settlements.
Despite reaching EBC, it not the last destination of our trek. We will penetrate deep inside the Khumbu region and visit Kalapatthar. The site (Kalapatthar) located at 5,545m will bring you face to face with Mt. Everest and here you will also get 360-degree of view of mountains. It seems as if you are in the centre of the mountains. The joy that you experience here cannot be expressed verbally. It is something inexpressive!
Once done with EBC, we get back to Lukla passing through Pheriche, Tengboche, and Namche Bazar. This is a different trail than the one which we took earlier.
As per this itinerary, we aim to deliver the best trek experience to our guest/s hence; we lead you to the EBC through the trail that is less trodden and unlocks the unspoiled beauty of the region.
