For anyone who has dreamt of standing in the shadows of Himalayas, queen of all is Mt. Everest (Sagarmatha), & Hiking to the foothills of the world's highest mountain is a dream worth seeing for. Very few of us will ever get to stand on the top of Everest since it's not everyone's cup of tea. However, trekking to Everest base camp is much more achievable goal & almost as rewarding. Deep in the Himalayas lies Everest base camp, a house of snow which runs like a backbone along north Nepal. For some, its a goal, but for others, it resembles Indiana Jones adventure- the ultimate wilderness.
Everest base camp trek is rounded out by breathless hikes across the ice fields. From beautiful forests, Sherpa villages, glacier moraines, snow-dolloped Himalayan peaks to mesmerizing valleys & potato fields Everest has it all.
Departing from an exhilarating flight from Kathmandu to Lukla & climaxing at the foot of Everest, it's an awe-inspiring adrenaline adventure. Dotted with tea houses the trail is swarmed but you will enjoy the company of like-minded travelers to share your sense of adventure with.
BEST TIME TO GO
Spring : March - May Fall : September - November
At these times, the weather is at its best, being hot but not uncomfortably so, and there’s usually minimal or no rain.
If you are experienced trekker & can manage to walk on snow, Everest base camp trek should be a “piece of cake” for you. But, if you happen to be a novice trekker then you need to prepare. Expect to cover around (15 km) 5-6 hours of trekking each day, which is achievable but it's a tough call for immature.
