The Everest Base Camp Trek is in the kingdom of the Himalayas which is home to the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest (8848m). The EBC trek is famous for its incredible views and is a favorite among trekkers from around the world. A trek to Everest Base Camp is an opportunity of a lifetime. EBC offers breathtaking scenery, pristine mountain views, and exceptional high and low trails. Nepal's beauty is sure to capture your heart as your trek through some of the most remarkable landscapes in the world.

Everest Base Camp has many diverse geographical landscapes, nature, flora, fauna and climates. The snow capped peaks above the Khumbu Glacier are unforgettable and the view of Mount Everest from the summit of Kala Patthar (5545m) is sure to take your breath away. Although it is possible to trek in this region at any time of the year, we recommend that you depart from the beginning of March to mid-May or from the beginning of September to mid-November to ensure optimal conditions. The winters in the Khumbu region can be quite cold and snowy making it challenging to trek higher than the Tengboche area and the clouds and rain during monsoon season often cover the peaks. During April and early May, you will be able to see the hedgerows and blooming rhododendrons creating a colorful landscape.                     

The Everest Base Camp Trek begins in Lukla (2800m) after a short flight from Kathmandu to the Tenzing-Hilary Airport. You will begin trekking through the village of Chhaurikhara passing by colorful mani walls, stupas and prayer wheels along the way, and arriving in Phakding. You will soon arrive in the bustling and beautiful Namche Bazaar, which is the perfect place to acclimatize and rest. During your acclimatization day, you can visit the neighboring village of Shyangboche and Everest View Hotel, the highest situated hotel in the world. The next day, you will arrive at Tengboche (3870m) and pass through the villages of Kenjuma and Sansa. You will then trek to Lobuche (4930m) and Gorak Shep (5160m) to make your final ascent to Everest Base Camp where the world's highest, the Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon starts and have the opportunity to summit Kala Patthar for an incredible sunrise view of Mount Everest. After reaching Gorak Shep, you will begin your descent back to the Lukla.

ECO-FRIENDLY: - Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can take a long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimises the fuel used and to make a campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveller so, just leaving a footprint on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had.
