Overview

Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is among the most revered and highly acclaimed trekking trails, for it is the gateway to the highest point of the world, vis-a-vis, the summit of Mount Everest. Everest is the tallest mountain in the world, its summit standing at 8848 meters (29028ft) above sea level. The Everest Base Camp is situated at an altitude of 5364 meters (17598ft).

The journey begins from Kathmandu, Nepal as you board a half an hour-long flight to Lukla (2680m). You get to experience stellar views of the Rooftop of the World as you fly in the vicinity of mesmerizing snow-clad peaks. Henceforth, the terrain keeps changing pattern, from rocky landslides, flowing rivers, bridges to lush green forests, all along the spectacular Himalayas in the background.

Some areas covered during the trekking trail include Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep, Everest Base Camp, Pheriche,  Kalapathar, Tengboche, and Monjo. A couple of days are added to the itinerary meant solely for acclimatization purposes wherein minimal exertion would be there so as to provide avenues for adaptability & assimilation with the purview of health being the primary concern.

The Everest region is not only famous for trekking routes, but is also home to many Sherpa communities. It is full of Sherpa villages and monasteries that represent the Sherpa culture. They are often referred to as Mountain Climbers as they journey the route so frequently that they know it like the back of their hand. Since the Everest summit is not visible from the Base Camp, most trekkers climb the Kalapathar, which is on the southern border of the 7505 meters high Pumori to get a view of the peak of Everest.   

The difficulty level of the Everest Base Camp trek is tough and training is recommended. The trail will challenge your stamina, physical agility, and capabilities. Due to this, reaching the Base Camp is considered a significant feat. All in all, the Everest Base Camp trek is not a journey to be missed.
