    About - Everest Base Camp Trek

    Everest Base Camp is one of the most well-known trekking destinations among adventurers and trekkers. In the shadow of the world's highest peak, this is the most rewarding and exciting walking track. Every year, a huge number of trekkers and tourists visit Nepal to participate in the EBC Trek. Many adventurers dream of visiting Everest Base Camp, and everyone should do so at least once in a lifetime. This trekking trail has already been recommended by renowned travel guides and journals such as Lonely Planet, National Geographic, Discovery, and numerous other travel and tour guide channels. The Everest Base Camp journey is a first-class trekking trail in Nepal, nestled in the shade of the world's highest mountain peaks and offering magnificent villages, holy places, sherpa cultures, Tibetan Buddhism reflections, and rare flora and wildlife in Sagarmatha National Park.

    This incredible trail begins with a scenic and dramatic 30-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (considered the world's most extreme airport), followed by a walk through pine forests, scary metal suspension bridges, stone filled with Buddhist mantras, prayers flags, chortens, stone walls, mani walls, beautiful Sherpa villages, and spectacular giant snow-capped mountains. As you begin your journey to Everest Base Camp, you will come across thousands of trekkers from all around the world, incredible destinations, local people, and sights that will give you a whole new perspective on life. The challenging time, difficult climb, rapid breathing, exhaustion, and harsh weather conditions will test you and try to motivate you to improve.

    As you hike across a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a stunning Sagarmatha National Park, you’ll reach the Sherpa capital Namche Bazaar and stay there an additional night to acclimatize and explore the town.  After spending the night in a comfortable tea house in the Everest region, you will push towards the spiritual destination in Tengboche, the fallen climber's memorial in Dingboche, and a small Sherpa settlement in Lobuche. You will cherish the mesmerizing views of snow-capped mountains, an alpine forest filled with rhododendron flowers, yak, donkeys, and numerous monasteries on the way. The most difficult part of this trek starts from Lobuche to Gorakshep, where you’ll walk on the stony glacier and the high altitude with extreme climate makes you tired for some time.
    Reaching Everest Base Camp, standing at the base of the world’s highest mountain, and cherishing the moment will refresh your mind and heart. You will forget all the tiredness and your mind will fill with relief, joy, and an overwhelming sense of achievement. Here you will spot the expedition team setting their camp for different mountain expeditions along with a majestic view of the Himalayas, Khumbu glacier, and Khumbu icefall. The next day, you will hike to the Kalapatthar viewpoint for the panoramic mountain view. Then, you’ll follow the same trail until you reach Lukla for the flight to Kathmandu.

    Major Highlights of Everest Base Camp Trek

    Adventure Walk & Scenic Flight

The correlate of living Tibetan Buddhism is prayer flags, stone walls, monasteries, chortens, mani walls, and little stupas. Tengboche is home to the world's oldest and most popular Buddhist monastery, and receiving a blessing from Lama Rinpoche gives spiritual vitality to your journey.

    Best time for Everest Trekking

    The best timeframe for Everest is the time between April and June. During this timeframe, the weather conditions are more clear and more apparent, and the biodiversity of the Everest district becomes animated, it's when nature shines up. The thick timberland around the locale is vivid, waking down those trails during such a timeframe is a snapshot of the experience. The Spring and Autumn are extensively hotter than winter and the greater part of the journeying is probably going to happen during this timeframe.

    You will be using normal teahouse accommodation during the trekking days in the mountain. During peak season ( Autumn- Sep-Nov) and (Spring- March-May) the teahouses and the trail are crowded. Since Autumn and Spring is the best season or best time of the year to trek to the Everest Region. However, Luxury Holidays Nepal's experienced and professional team is always there to ensure your safety and services all around the year. We offer a farewell cultural dinner at the end of the trip. If you want some other options in Everest Region, you can also go with this package for the Everest Experience as a Short EBC trek by helicopter, Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp Trek, and a Luxury EBC trek.
    Along the journey, you will relish the wonderful trek, support the local economy, explore your hidden strengths, and make both friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

      Great experience with the best team

      I trekked to Everest Base Camp with my 3 friends in January. All the experiences with Luxury Holidays Nepal from our arrival, trek, and departure were so convenient and professional! They took care of us during the trek. The quality of the equipment LHN provided us was first class. My Guide Krishna was friendly and knew sherpas culture. Krishna made the trek fun and my Porter Rajan was also very helpful and always ready to help in every step of the trek. Accommodation and food were excellent considering the locations on the trek. Had a great trip. I will come back to Nepal one day to do more trekking with LHN.

      Best moments in Everest Ever

      A wonderful trek organized by Luxury Holidays Nepal and had a fantastic time. They had provided the perfect hotels and room after receiving them at the airport. They provided outstanding service and most adventurous experience in the Base camp trek. The trek itself was challenging than I thought yet really worthwhile. The sense of achievement we felt was beyond words. We went to the upper Everest and have different experiences with sunrise and sunset above the mountains. Every day brings rewarding scenery, amazing landscape, huge rocks, and mountains and passes through an isolated village. The tea house accommodation along the way EBC, our food and transport of our gear. Everest Base camp is one of my favorite destinations in the world and the best destinations for any adventure lovers too. I would highly recommend LHN and their member for more and more trips to Nepal.
