Overview

The Everest Base Camp Trekking (EBC Trek) is the most beautiful trail in the Everest Region and is indeed the most famous Himalayan Trek. Everest Base Camp Trek is famous for its spectacular mountain views and hospitality of its inhabitants, the Sherpa people. Mount Everest is also known as Sagarmatha in Nepalese language, which in English literally means “Mother Goddess of the World”.

Everest Base Camp trekking offers a unique experience with panoramic views of the world’s highest and most beautiful mountains. It is one of the most inspiring place in the world and trekking is possible all year round, but the best times to visit are March to May and September to December.

The trip begins with a 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla which is an entry point of the Everest Region. You start your trek from Lukla. On the way there are many tea houses in which you can stay and eat locally as well as Western food. The trail takes one through the green Dudhkosi Valley, which is rich in Flora and Fauna, Sherpa Villages, and Buddhist Monasteries. It leads one up to the legendary Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar where you spend two nights exploring and acclimating, an important factor for your safety and enjoy experience the Everest Base Camp trekking. Then you follow the trail to the villages of Tengboche, Pangboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche where Yaks can be seen grazing in the high meadows. Finally you reach the last human settlement, the village of Gorakshep, which is just two hours from Everest Base Camp.
