Everest Base camp Trek

Trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp will bring you a front row view of the crown of the world. It is an epic journey which is suitable for those of adventurous spirit following the footsteps of world famous and legendary climbers. Mt Everest, Lhotse, Nupse, Amadabalam, Lola, and Labuche are famous mountain that can be viewed as we walk. Trekking to Mount Everest not only means lofty peaks and high altitude as it is also accompanied by natural beauty, flora, fauna and rich Sherpa culture. Tibetan Buddhism has a huge influence on the life of Sherpa people and we will visit several monasteries along the way.
 
Our trek begins in Lukla after a breathtaking airplane ride from Kathmandu. We will rest that night at Phakding following an overall downhill decent. Further trekking to Jorsalle will bring us to the National Park entrance. Further ahead we will reach Namche, Tengbuche and Pangbucheas we walk through forests of rhododendron, pine and juniper along the way. Further on from Pangbuche is tree barren land where we will have stunning views of all surrounding majesty. Upon reaching Dingbuche we will spend a full day of rest to provide adequate acclimatization to the lofty elevation. From there we continue our climb to Thukla. We will make our last push on the trail through the rocky moraines and glaciers until we reach the base camp.

Accommodation During Trekking
During the trek, we will be staying at local teahouses. These offer accommodation and food served in a dining room which also functions as a social meeting place with other trekkers. All accommodation is on a twin shared basis. A single room is usually available at a little extra cost. The tour guide will arrange the best available accommodation in each village. As we advance to higher and more remote villages it may occasionally be necessary to share a room with more than 2 people. During the treks, most of the bathroom and toilet facilities are shared and toilet can be either a squat or a western toilet.
 
Meals During Trekking
In Kathmandu we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food such as Thali and Momo at a traditional Nepalese restaurant. For instance the Newari restaurant is a special place serving Newari food (the Newari are the indigenous people of the Kathmandu valley). Newari food is famous and unique. During the trek we will eat traditional Nepalese food as well as more international cuisine (Tibetan, Indian, Italian and continental). Dinner and breakfast will be taken at the teahouse where we spend the night and lunch at one of the trail teahouses.

We will visit Kathmandu Darbar Square, Buddhist Stupa (Buddha Nath), and Hindus secret temple, PashupatiNath. We will end our tour by visiting the Monkey temple – Swayambhunath.

The left-hand side of the plane will offer you an amazing view of the Himalayas. Once we arrive at Lukla a quick traditional breakfast will be prepared for us before an easy three-hour hike, crossing the mountain ranges via high suspension bridges (not for the faint of heart). The trail will take us to our first guesthouse along our journey in a little village called Phakding.  We will warm ourselves by the fireplace in the evening which will help your muscles be best prepared for tomorrow’s strenuous trek.

The hike takes us over the DudhKosi River and then we follow the eastern side of the mountain ranges. Although this hike will test your fitness, the trail will continually reward you with magnificent views of mountain ranges we ascend further and further.  During this climb to Namche, you will notice the altitude and once reaching the village, tomorrow’s rest day will feel very well deserved.
Total Trekking Time: 5 hours
 
Day 5: Acclimatization Day in Namche Bazar

There is a famous German Bakery here where you can indulge in freshly brewed coffee and cake. Today is also a good opportunity to walk up to the Everest View Hotel, which will not only provide your first views of Mt. Everest, but will also assist your body in further adjusting to the high altitude.

The track will then descend to cross a suspension bridge over the DudhKoshi River allowing you to catch your breath. It is here where we will have lunch before ascending for a hard 2 hour trek to a teahouse in Tengboche.  Tengboche holds the largest monastery within this region and if you’re lucky enough to be here in the months of October and November, you will get the opportunity to witness the Mani Rimdu festival where there will be masked dancers and Tibetan Opera, celebrating the recreation of Buddhist events.
