The nirvana of the Himalayas attracts lots of people every year around the globe.  One of the most amazing and famous trekking expeditions in Nepal is to Everest base camp. The trek appeals in addition to the Himalayas’ mind-blowing beauty and the wonderful experience of being so high up in them. The trekkers will cherish this trek fondly throughout their whole life.

With this traditional walk, you can ascend and descend the main trekking path right in the heart of the Solu Khumbu region. If your main objective is to reach Everest Base Camp, this trek is suited for you, even though the Khumbu region has many other beautiful places.

People who don’t feel like ascending the highest peak in the world or who aren’t physically fit enough typically choose one of the treks, such as the Everest Base Camp trek, which is neither simple nor difficult. However, this trek is not for everyone.

This expedition is appropriate for people looking for a tranquil, uninhabited location, an exhilarating experience, and someone who enjoys the history and culture of a nation that embraces religion. The optimum season for fresh days and clear mountain views is particularly in the spring and fall.

Hike through the legendary footsteps

You’ll recognize how unique our 12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary truly is when your feet step onto the trail. Following in the footsteps of legendary mountaineers will lead you past hilltop monasteries, Himalayan market villages, and rugged peaks until you reach the renowned starting location for all Everest expeditions.

Don’t miss the opportunity to travel in the footsteps of some of the world’s most famous adventurers and many other legendary mountaineers who lost their lives while ascending the summit. So, allow us to assist you in exploring Khumbu’s many amazing features. And appreciate the breathtaking mountain valleys and amazing attractions of the area. Explore the well-known Khumbu region, dramatic views of the Himalayas, and Sherpa culture.

Is this a difficult trek?

Is the Everest Base Camp Trek difficult? This is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive. In fact, the Everest base camp is moderately difficult. It is not as difficult as you thought. You can do it if you walk steadily, prepare well, and are physically fit and energetic. As is often said, rough paths frequently lead to wonderful destinations; the same is true of this voyage.

It is challenging and will test your limitations to hike to Everest Base Camp. Nonetheless, anyone can make their dream come true. You don’t have to be an Olympian or a high-altitude mountaineer, but you need to be fully prepared for this trek. Even though the paths are challenging, the breathtaking view of the lush fields, hills, and mountains will inspire you to keep going.

Altitude sickness

High altitude is regarded as one of the principal challenges of EBC, among other challenges. The Mount Everest base camp is located at the height of 5,364 meters above sea level. It is truly a very high height, as the trip begins at a height of 2,800 meters. Therefore, if someone has any breathing issues, we strongly advise that they should totally avoid going on this trek. We also suggest that before hiking at high altitudes, trekkers should seek good medical counsel and learn about altitude sickness.

Safety Precautions

Trekkers must be physically healthy and enthusiastic to succeed on their trip to Everest base camp. The following are some safety precautions to be aware of before going to Everest base camp:

  • To avoid suffering from altitude sickness, you should always stay hydrated.
  • Because of the severe weather, trekkers must use caution and bring basic medical supplies or a first aid box.
  • Alcohol causes extreme dehydration, so stay away from it.
  • The trekkers must take their time and allow enough time for acclimatization for their bodies to prevent Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS).
  • At high altitudes, you should always wear sunglasses since glaring sunlight can harm your eyes and lead to snow blindness or other eye-related issues.
  • You must invest money in quality trekking accessories like bags, shoes, and other items.
  • Before traveling, do extensive research about the area.
  • Show courtesy to regional traditions and customs and the local people of that area.
  • Never stand at the streamside; whenever yaks and mules pass, stand on the slope.
  • Anytime you pass a mani wall or chorten, be on the left side.

In conclusion, this is essential for those who are weaker and can struggle to handle the area’s mountainous terrain and stroll on those unpaved, rocky roads.

Before reaching Phakding, we start our trek by descending Dudh Koshi, passing through some prominent villages including Chaurikharka, Chhaplung (2660m), and Ghat (2590m).

Your adventure on our EBC trek comes to an end today. The Dudhi Koshi River is followed all the way down to Lukla, where you’ll spend your final night in the Himalayas. We need to walk carefully as our worn-out legs continually battle the rocky ground as the trail descends steeply.

You can explore Lukla Bazaar and shop for local items as a gift for your family and friends there, celebrate your successful and safe trek with your crew, and learn some Sherpa dance steps during the farewell party.

Early in the morning, we leave Tenzing-Hillary airport, boarding a scenic 35-minute flight back to Kathmandu. As we soar above the sky and take in the captivating vista of the Khumbu region, we’ll be carrying an unforgettable and fruitful voyage to the EBC.

Your guide will take you to the hotel after you arrive because a restful night will be important after a strenuous trek. In the evening, we have a farewell dinner together. Upon request, we’ll arrange a departing transfer.
