Overview: Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek is the most beautiful and interesting trek that will take trekkers to the base of the World’s Highest Mountain “Mount Everest”. Though most searched and most loved trekking destination, a limited number of visitors get a chance to visit the place.  The trek provides an opportunity to discover the unique culture and lifestyle of the Sherpa people who are known as the guardian angels of the Himalayas. One of the major highlights of the treks is it offers an alluring view of Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8414m), Pumori, (7165m), Ama Dablam (6856m), Mt. Khumbila (5761m), and the other Himalayas while standing on the foot of the mighty Everest. Along with the breath-taking vista of the Himalayas, the trekkers also get to relish the beauty of Khumbu Glacier. Kala Patthar (5550m), which is the best viewpoint to relish the beauty of Everest (8848m), is another gist of Everest Base Camp Trek. The trek also features a visit to the hotel operated at the highest altitude in the world, Hotel Everest View (3962m).

The trekking trail passes through the Sagarmatha National Park which has been inscribed as the country’s first national park to be listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. If one is lucky enough, a rare glimpse of Himalayan Fauna and Flora can also be spotted.

The trip to the Everest Base Camp starts as soon as your flight lands in Kathmandu where you will be welcomed and escorted to the respective hotel as agreed. Prior to the trek, you can involve yourself in sightseeing tours which allow you to have an insight into the glorious Nepalese history. The trekking journey starts on day 3 when you will be taking an early morning flight to Lukla which is also known as the gateway to Everest. The trekking starts with as soon as one reaches Lukla and trek towards Phakding. The well-developed trekking trail will lead you forward towards the dream. Besides the natural beauties, the EBC Trek also allows trekkers to adore the pleasant alpine vegetation, beautiful Tibetan villages, chortens, monasteries, prayer flags, etc.

Expedition Himalaya allows you to enjoy the holiday to the fullest by organizing the complete package making your trip hassle-free. Accommodation at the tea houses operated by the local entrepreneurs will be provided with inclusive of the meals. This Trek can be done during any time of the year. However, the best time for trek would be the Spring Season (March to May) and autumn season (October to December).

    Was a great trek to Everest Basecamp. Flew from Dallas Texas to Kathmandu. Took 36 hours to make the flight. Next time I will do layovers along the flights. Flew from Kathmandu to Lukla where we started hike. Around 35 miles of hiking from Lukla to Everest Basecamp. Overnight accommodations were from excellent to poor. Tea rooms for dining were always good. We had good weather the entire trek so didn’t need our gear in day packs. Sherpas carried all our heavy gear bags to each overnight stops. It made the hike more enjoyable and especially at those high altitudes to not have to carry the extra weight. Highly recommended to get diamox for the altitude. There is a lot of up and down hiking along the valleys. So it can be difficult if you’re not in shape. On average around 7 miles a day. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. Towering ice covered mountains. Several cable bridges to cross the river along the way. We opted to make arrangements to take a returning helicopter back to Lukla from a lower stop from Everest Basecamp. The Sherpas at Everest Basecamp took real good care of us. Good food and tea. When we got back to Kathmandu, we did tours and restaurants before returning home. I would do this trip again. I went in March 2017 and not the date selection listed.

    I had a wonderful experience with this company. They allowed me to customize my trip to base camp in a shorter timer frame. My porter, guide and the trip co-ordinator were all very attentive and helpful.

    Traveled with Expedition Himalaya recently. They were amazing. We had very specific requirements and they were super easy to deal with. They helped us organize everything from airport transfers to a helicopter trip all the way from Lukla to Kathmandu at our treks end. Their advice on the best trekking route to Base Camp was invaluable. We had amazing guides. Our head guide was Dhan - he has amazing experience and was able to share so many secrets along the way. He was always there with extra motivation when we hit hard times along the way. We also had an additional guide who was preparing for an Everest Expedition. The porters were fantastic as well - not one complaint about the weight!! Dhan organized the lot - food, accommodation, sight seeing. Nothing was too hard and he really made the trip a once in a lifetime experience.

    I just got back from a great adventure in Kathmandu, Tibet, and EBC. Usually I plan my trips in great detail, but this time I left it to Expedition Himalaya as they were recommended by a friend whose brother has used them frequently for trips including full Everest trips. My trip was also unusual (especially for Tibet and EBC) because I was traveling alone versus with a group. The trip went off well with only minor variations which given where I was in the world, I expected. The guides were great at all locations with one supporting many VIPs from the United States including Congresspeople, etc. You know you are secure and well educated by those types of guides. The hotels selected were above average for local standards and were inexpensive. I probably would have like to choose my hotels when there was a US brand available (to get frequent stay points!), but I felt safe and secure at each. Additionally, the food at each hotel was good and again above average for this part of the world. If I had to identify an area for improvement I'd say that I could packed more stuff onto my agenda. When I travel, I like doing everything I can possibly do from dawn to dusk. On some days the tours only lasted until 2pm or so. This is not a big problem as I knew the itinerary, but I could have done more. Finally, all the tour guides spoke good or excellent English so I felt at home at all times. All in all, these guys did a great job organizing my trip.
