Join us on this incredible 15 day Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal. A trekking experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list!
The Everest Base Camp Trek by the Himalaya Land Treks starts with a short flight from
Kathmandu to Lukla. The trekking trail goes through many settlements and villages along the
way, like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Dingboche and Tengboche among many more. These
Sherpa villages allow the trekkers to enjoy the Sherpa culture and traditions. Most of the
trekking trail also passes through the Sagarmatha National Park.
Some of the best highlights of the trek include the vantage point of Kalapatthar from where
trekkers are presented with panoramic views of the entire Mount Everest massif. Additionally,
the vantage point also offers surreal views peaks like Ama Dablam (6856m), Lhotse (8516m),
Nuptse (7861m), Cho Oyu (8201m), and the Mount Everest (8848m). Likewise, the Everest
Base Camp itself is decorated with the views of Khumbu Icefall and Glacier along with peaks
like Pumo Ri (7165m) and Nuptse (7861m).
The Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trekking journey and does not require previous
trekking experience to do. It is best done during the moths of March to May during spring and
from September to December during autumn. The remaining seasons i.e. winter (December-
February) and monsoon (June-August) experience unstable weather conditions which affect the
flights to/from Lukla.
