Every single trekking enthusiast and backpacker aspires to get as far as the Everest Base Camp (5,364 m) and contemplate the snow-capped peaks in amazement. In the heartland of formidable Himalayas lies the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest aka Sagarmatha in Nepali i.e. accompanied by other renowned summits of Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Pumori (7,161m), Mt. Nuptse (7,855m) and many more.

Everest Base Camp Trekking is Known as EBC Treks, the most popular and visited Trekking Trail in Nepal. The Everest base camp Kalapathar trek commences with stupendous and splendid 35 minutes flight to Lukla. From here, we advance on the declining trip along the bank of Dudh Koshi river and trek through the small village of Phakding to Namche Bazaar i.e. also celebrated as “Gateway to Mt. Everest”. Actually, from this point onwards, there are many routes to reach the Everest Base Camp (5,364 m). These renowned routes are Kalapathar, Gokyo, Jiri, and Renjo pass trails.

Afterward, we trek to Dingboche where we’ll have a day for resting and acclimatization purposes. In addition, we can enjoy the beautiful mountain outlooks. We resume our trek to Lobuche; then advance to Gorak Shep (5,170m) the next day. From here, we trek towards the Everest Base Camp.

Afterward, the trail traverses to the eastern bank of Dudh Koshi River and makes its way through the woodland of rhododendron and Blue pine to Chumoa and Mondzo, situated on the edge of Sagarmatha National Park.

On top of that, this very Sherpa village presents the delightful panorama of gigantic peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and Taweche on a clear day. You can also get familiar with ethnic Sherpa customs and traditions succeeding a tour of Village.
This very day, we’ll trek on the trail, which initially advances through the Khumjung region then progress to prime route to Everest Base Camp at Shanasa. Afterwards, the trail makes headway to Trashinga then Phunkitenga (3,250m) where it traverses the Dudh Koshi River. Phunkitenga harbours an army checkpoint that examines trekker’s permit.

Tengboche also functions as a lookout point displaying sublime sunset vista over Mt. Everest and Mt. Ama Dablam.
This morning, we will make our way down across the woodland at Debouche, chiefly occupied by rhododendron, birch, fir and juniper. Continuing the journey, we steadily head uphill on the trail that passes over the rushing Imja Khola and progresses to Pangboche (3,985m).

Subsequently, the trail traverses Imja Khola again after ascending past the alpine hillside then come to Dingboche (4,360m).
The day seven of our adventure is allocated for second acclimatization.

The Base camp is a wonderful place where you can reach via trekking only (without use of mountaineering equipment). Here, you can get a sight of colorful camps set up by the mountaineers during their Everest expedition. Don’t expect a warm welcome from the climbers there, respect their privacy and concentrate to fulfill your Everest dream i.e. sightseeing and snapping pictures. You may be disappointed as you don’t observe the full picture of colossal Mt. Everest from bottom to top as expected because you are too near to the mountain itself. But, you can contemplate striking Khumbu Icefall. On top of that, you can also get the awe-inspiring glimpses of snowy mountaintops including Pumori, Mahalangur, Lingtern, Khumbutse, Nuptse, and many more.

Complemented by lush greenery with snowy mountaintops as the backdrop; the trail now traverses suspension bridges, numerous Sherpa settlements. Without any obstacles to break off, the trail finally reaches the village of Phakding (2,610m). From this point onwards, the trail ultimately ends up at Lukla (2,840m).
