Everest base camp trekking is the most popular trekking in Nepal done by thousands of visitors every year. The elegance and the beauty of Everest cannot be described in words only. Mount Everest or Sagarmatha (in local) or Chomolungma (in Tibetan), standing tall and proud is the most amazing thing in the earth. Journey to its base camp is not an ordinary trek but extraordinary, nicknamed by many as steps to heaven.

An average country walk in the high hills and passes which is mostly uphill, taking one to the typical Sherpa villages enriched with Buddhist religion and culture, is sure to enchant you from the day you step into the Everest (Khumbu) region. The alpine chilly climate in the Everest region requires you to be strong willed and not afraid of little bit of snow most of the time. However, the best time to travel to the Everest base camp is Feb – June and Sep - Nov.

There are many ways and routes as well to do Everest trekking depending upon the traveler’s requirement. Take the flight from/to Lukla if you have the short visit time, get a helicopter back from Everest base camp to Lukla to make it more shorter whereas if you have a long holiday duration enjoy the trekking via Jiri. Either way, Everest base camp is not far anymore and can be done anytime of the year by anyone.

Highlights

  • Trek to the bottom of the “Roof of the world” i.e. Everest
  • Travel through the highest passes and glaciers
