EVEREST BASE CAMP TREKKING


Everest Base Camp trekking is a lifetime dream for many western travelers. To stand at the foot of the world’s tallest mountain, Mt. Everest and see high up is many people’s dream. Trekking to Everest Base Camp is the perfect opportunity to explore the lifestyle of the Himalayan people, their religion, customs and traditional way of life. Comparatively, Everest Base Camp trekking is more challenging than the Annapurna Circuit due to difficulty with altitude. On day 2 on the Everest Base Camp trek, you reach at 3420 meters in Namche Bazaar. On the Annapurna Circuit, you do not gain this much altitude until Day 6. Each day the trail involves a substantial amount of scrambling up and down on Everest Base Camp trek whereas the Annapurna Circuit trekking has far more gentle, flat stretches that don’t leave you heaving for breath. On the Everest Base Camp trek, you have to come down following the exact route that you climbed up before. On the Annapurna Circuit, you never have to repeat any step that you have taken at the beginning. If you are really looking for challenging trek and close-up mountain views, then Everest Base Camp might be your choice.
 The trek to Everest Base Camp begins after an exploration of the local temples, shrines and bazaars and restaurants in Kathmandu followed by a flight to Lukla within the mountains and continue to walk uphill through the Dudh Kosi Valley. While on the trek, you will enjoy the views of awe- inspiring peaks of Thamserku, Kusum Kanguru and Ama Dablam in the far distance. Along the trail, you encounter unique flora and fauna, friendly Sherpa people, yaks, colorful festivals and Buddhist monasteries. Blooming of different flowers like rhododendron, magnolias, blue pine, Chir pine, juniper, and hemlock make the Everest Base Camp trek more delightful for nature lovers. At Namche Bazaar we take a rest to assist in better acclimatization and for further exploration of the surrounding and continue the trek further. The close-up view of Everest and other mountain peaks from Kala Patthar is the most exciting and memorable one. The dry seasons of autumn- October/November and spring – March/April are the best time to do Everest Base Camp trek as you get a glimpse of Everest distinctly from all directions.
