The trek can be a thrilling and adventurous journey for those who seek pleasure in hiking and exploring nature through mountainous trails. Reaching the base of the world’s tallest peak, which stands 8,848 m/29,025ft., is once in a lifetime experience. The exotic beauty of snow-capped peaks and icy trails once marched through by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay will surely leave you with a sense of fulfillment and achievement after days of walking.

What are the major highlights of the Everest Base Camp Trek?

The Everest Base Camp Trek starts with a tour around UNESCO World Heritage Sites around Kathmandu. Then, on the next day, we will fly from Kathmandu to Lukla. From Lukla, the expedition on foot begins. One must be in sound health with good physical fitness to start out on an arduous journey. As the trip is of 15 days, carrying your bags considering the weight is a must. Our trek guide and porter will accompany you along the way to ensure your safety, comfort, and fun.

The trail to Everest Base Camp Trek passes through Sherpa villages where you will receive warm hospitality from the Sherpa people, often known as mighty climbers. Local hot beverages are served at tea houses along the way with traditional Nepali cuisine. They are sure to fill your taste buds with some unique flavours. Although the community life is not so prosperous, the service they provide is homely and welcoming. Ancient monasteries are seen decorated with prayer wheels and prayer flags which exhibit the religious inclination of Sherpa people towards Buddhist culture. You will also be visiting Tengboche Monastery, the largest and most famous monastery in Khumbu region. If you plan your trip around October and November you will get chance to enjoy the famous Mani Rimdu festival at the monastery.

The vast expanse of the mountainous beauty of Mount Lhotse, Mount Makalu, and Mount Cho yo among others, welcome you along the way. Red rhododendron bushes and pine trees add more colour to the walk. Rare species of flora and fauna can be spotted along Sagarmatha National Park, the UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site. The park is home to rare and endangered species like red panda, wolf, snow leopard and musk deer. Being at the altitude of 5,364 m at the base camp gives you utmost pleasure and satisfaction accompanied by the thrill of being nearest to the world’s tallest peak. The trek also includes a hike to Kala Patthar. The views of the stunning Himalayan vista from Kala Patthar are closest and amazing. The breathtaking views with a blend of nature at this highest altitude leave you with serene joy. The panoramic beauty captured through your eyes once you reach the base camp is utterly amazing and defies words. If you are seeking fun, thrill, and exhilaration, Everest Base Camp Trek for sure, will provide you more than you ask for.

How is the difficulty level of Everest Base Camp Trek?

The Everest Base Camp trek can be considered a little difficult in comparison to other treks. You need to be in sound health to take up this trek but no prior trekking experience is required. Our trekking guides will provide you all the necessary instructions regarding basics of trekking and safety measures before the trip begins.

    Great Experience and Adventure

    I have the best time of my life. My Guide Jivan was a true professional and a great man. He was very knowledgeable and patient and a perfect fit for me. I would never hike in this region without him. He knew everyone and I could tell that the other guides and tea house owners all thought very highly of him. I can't say enough good things about him. In my opinion, he is the BEST!!!. The porter also did a wonderful job, always smiling and right to the end he even carried my duffle to the airport twice in Lukla because our flight was delayed. HE was wonderful. Sittal, the owner, is also a great guy and I was very happy with him and his company. He kept me well-informed and was always very prompt with any replies to my emails prior to coming to Nepal. He runs a very good company, is very personable and cares about his company and clients. I would use this company again. I consider my 15 days with Sittal and Jivan to be top notch and just as advertised. If you want a great adventure from a fun, professional company, go with Nepal Ascent Treks. Thanks again for the trip of a lifetime. Peter

    Knowledgeable Accomdating Awesome Sittal and his team

    As reviewed by fellow trekker, our last minute EBC plan worked only thanks to Sittal and his team. Even before we'd agreed to trek with him, he was very helpful giving us tips and best practices. Even during the trek, everyday we had changes in itinerary and he was very accommodative of all our crazy ideas. The dream team of Sittal and his guide Bale Bahadur was the best we could've asked for. After our flight to Lukla got delayed, he managed to get us seats on a Helicopter for free. He was helpful even after I left Nepal, helping me send some postcards and packages. Overall definitely recommend Sittal and Nepal ascents for all your Nepal visits and itineraries.

    This was a last minute plan to trekking to the Everest Base Camp. We researched a few companies and zeroed in on Nepal Ascent Treks due to Sittal's timely followups and knowledge comparatively. Once we landed in Kathmandu he made us feel like home and ensured we were comfortable. Our guide during the trek was Balbahadur (Bale) Tamang who was very experienced, entertaining, patient, helpful and knowledgeable. He ensured our energy levels were high. Overall this has been an amazing experience for us and would definitely recommend Nepal Ascent Treks and Bale Tamang. They really go above and beyond to ensure you are comfortable and enjoying your time. Can't wait to go back to Nepal again. Thank you! :)
