Trip Overview of Everest Base Camp Trek
Everest base camp trek is one of the most desirable adventure journeys in the world. Watching the world's tallest mountain with your naked eye is an outstanding experience. Walking in the Sherpaland, Exploring the hidden valleys, Visiting sacred monastery, walking in the footstep of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Sherpaa, exploring this region's flora-fauna, and observing the livelihood of local Sherpa people are the highlights of this journey.
Everest base camp is located in the Everest region of Nepal inside Sagarmatha national park. This region is a UNESCO world heritage site so it is well protected and preserved. Tourist link trek offers you the best to make your journey reliable, convenient, and memorable.
This two-week adventure starts in Kathmandu with your arrival. The next day we fly to Lukla 2840m which takes nearly 30 minutes and is very scenic and spectacular. You will meet your porter and other supporting crew there and the guide will explain to you about the journey, Dos-Don'ts, People, customs, culture, local rules, and caution to be careful. The journey starts descending to Phakding 2610m through lush green forest and passing several villages. We stay our first overnight there and the next day walk to Namche bazaar 3440m where we spent two nights because it is very crucial to spend an extra night to get acclimatized. We go visiting the museum, Everest view hotel, and the neighboring village on this consecutive day. We continue ascending through the rugged terrain passing through several villages and monasteries. We spend two nights at Dingbochey 4410m which is also to get acclimatized. Above 4000m altitude, the landscape is completely desolate thus here we can see pastureland. Here we can see a lot of Yaks carrying stuff and commodities whereas donkeys and Zokpeys are widely used for this purpose. After Dingbochey we pass through Thokla 4650m and climb uphill and reach Memorial hill where we can see many monuments build. The trail goes through the more rugged path to Lobuche 4900m where we spent one night. We have pristine panoramic Mountain View here while we walk over the moraine route here. We walk to Gorakshep 5150m where we take the highest sleep of the journey. We visit Everest base camp and next day climb Kalapathar 5545m for the panoramic bird's eye view of the Himalayas. We come back down passing through the beautiful village exploring the village in depth.
Everest Base camp trek complexity
The journey to the Everest Base Camp trek is for sure a challenging task that requires physical fitness and little hiking experience.
