Everest Region in Nepal
Trek to Mount Everest Base Camp is one of those trips that make your holiday dreams come true. Hiking on the legendary foothills just below the mighty Everest with breathtaking views of the master peaks can only be found in the Everest Region. This famous trek is known worldwide for its trailblazing routes & the landscapes speak to your senses.
We take a flight to Lukla and trek up the Dudh Kosi Valley, surrounded by the soaring peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. It’s a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, capital of the Khumbu Sherpas, where we are again greeted by spectacular mountain vistas. The culture in this particular area is of great notebook stuff & interacting with the local folks puts more zest into your adventurous journey as you plod through the Khumbu region of Nepal. Further, we make it to Everest Base Camp (5380 meters), an aspiration for trekkers and mountaineers around the globe. From here you can see the infamous Khumbu Icefall, though further up, at Kala Patthar (5545 meters), an even greater view is witnessed.
The views from the base camp, the climbing route and ultimately the summit are superb. The summit ridge offers a 360-degree panorama of the region including Mount Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Ama Dablam (6812m), Nuptse (7861m), Pumori (7161m). Nothing beats the thrill and sense of achieving that grips hikers on seeing the power and elegance of the mighty mountain up close. After an overwhelming and exciting time our Everest Base Camp trek concludes with a climb to rocky Kalapathar hill top, with views of Everest at close distance and standing on the highest point of the adventure at 5,545 m high. Our Everest base camp Group trek departs every week from Kathmandu, private trek can be arranged any time,you may choose Private departures by selecting your own convenient tour date. Customized itineraries are available as per your travel need.
If you can walk 5 miles a day and are in good aerobic shape (with a doctor’s approval), you can do fine and make it. The actual trekking is on mostly level ground with a few sections of steep hillsides – up and down. You should not carry more than a light day pack with a jacket, water and snacks. However, it is the altitude that creates the main issues. That said, the better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the overall experience.
There’s no specific training needed if you are reasonably fit. If you are completely sedentary, then yes some cardiovascular training would be recommended. Stair climbing or hill walking will get most people ready. Remember you’ll be walking up and down rough paths for 8-12 days. You’ll be at altitude too which will make things much harder. Having a good level of fitness will help you enjoy your trek more and always remember, it’s not a race!

It depends on your route, but EBC trek usually takes about 15 days. We suggest you not to go on a rush trek primarily due to the altitude. You will be landed in Lukla at (9,250 feet) and go to EBC at (17,500 f.). If you go too fast or rush your itinerary, you might get altitude sickness which is harmful.
