The Everest Base Camp Trek is the best known and most beautiful trail in the Khumbu region also known as the Everest region. Indeed, it is probably the most famous Himalayan trek. EBC is famous for its spectacular mountain views and friendly Sherpa people. Everest is also known as Sagarmatha, which translates to the Mother Goddess of the World.
The Everest base camp trek offers a unique experience with panoramic views of the world's highest and most beautiful mountains. It is one of the most inspiring places in the world and trekking is possible all year a round but the best times to visit are March to mid-May and September to mid-December.
The trip begins with 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, from which point we start our trek at an altitude of 2,800+ meters. Along the way, there are many teahouses where we stay and eat local as well as Western food.
The EBC trail takes you through the green Dudhkosi Valley, which is rich in flora and fauna, Sherpa villages, and Buddhist monasteries. It leads you up to the legendary Sherpa village of Namche Bazar where we spend two nights exploring and acclimatising, an important factor to your safe enjoyment of the EBC trek.
We then follow the trail to the villages of Tengboche, Pangbocche, Dingboche and Lobuche where Yaks graze in high meadows. Finally, we reach the last human settlement, the village of Gorakshep, which is just two hours from Everest Base Camp. From here, we can see the Khumbu Ice Fall and interact with mountaineers about climbing Everest. From Gorakshep our trail takes us to Kalapatthar from where we have the best possible views of the Himalayan Range.
We've now come to the turn-around point of the trek and therefore start descending following the same trail with still more splendid, fascinating, and breathtaking views that leaves you with a lifetime of mountain memories.
