“The panoramic view and the enchanting Himalayas that is all divine to set the environment into something unique……………..come and explore this nature at its best….”
Trekking to the Everest Base Camp, which is the world’s most memorable and picturesque walk in the Himalaya popular among the passionate trekkers of the planet. Everest Base Camp trek also famously known as the EBC Trek, falls in the list of most trekkers around the world, because it takes us to the base of world’s highest mountain Mt Everest and the trek leads us into the thin air through colorful rhododendron forests, roaring rivers, gigantic glaciers, enormous ice falls, prayer flags all around and suspension bridges. Everest Base Camp trekking is carnival in the Sherpa heartland in the stage of Himalaya adorned beautifully by the floras and faunas of Sagarmatha National Park. Come and join our Everest Base Camp Trekking to explore mountains and valleys, to enjoy the panoramic Himalayan scenery, to rest in teahouses run by local Sherpa families, to learn about tradition and cultures of world famous people of the mountain the Sherpas, to get an insight to Buddhism through ancient vibrant monasteries, and to reach the legendary viewpoint of Kalapatthar and the historical Everest Base Camp (EBC).
Our Everest Base Camp Trek begins with your arrival, reception and transfer to your hotel on the first day and brief information about the trip by our Organizer Himalayan Scenery Treks & Expedition. Everest Base Camp Trek starts on day second after an adventurous flight to Lukla, which is one of the loveliest airport in terms of scenic view. We walk through several villages inhabited by the sherpas like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and finally reach Everest Base Camp. We also visit KalaPatthar for sunrise/sunset view over the Himalayan range. After striking our goal The Everest Base Camp and KalaPatthar, we return back through the same route pleased by the buzz of having seen Everest at extremely close quarters.
Fitness level required for Everest Base Camp Trek: Everest Base Camp trek is not only for professional walkers or athletes. It is rather challenging trek for novice trekkers too but reasonable fitness and ability to walk through steep gradients both up and down for about an average of 5-6 hours per day (however, some days might need more walk, such as the day you reach Everest base camp) plus mental commitment qualifies you adequately to participate and complete Everest Base Camp trek successfully. Slow and steady is the motto, which is the key to achieving and enjoying your Everest Base Camp Trek. Prepare with cardiovascular training several times a week: cycling, swimming, hill climbing and lots of walking. Without training, you will find the Everest Base Camp Trekking less enjoyable – and we want you to enjoy the Everest Base Camp trekking and have the time of your life!
