Everest Base Camp Trekking There are many trekking routes to explore the Himalayan nature and people in this Everest Region. Some popular and commom trekking routes are mentioned in our Everest Region Trekking programs . One of the most common and popular trekking routes of this region is the Everest Base Camp Trekking. Everest Base Camp trekking is a fabulous trek that offers exciting and breathtaking views of mountain and an insight into the lives of the Sherpa people and their old ages culturs and traditions.

The journey begins from Kathmandu, the Capital of Nepal. We take an exciting mountain flight to Lukla from Kathmandu or drive to Jiri and start the journey up to the destination. We walk through the Dudh Kosi Valley which is surrounded by the soaring peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. When we leave the valley the way is a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar - hub of the Khumbu Sherpas where we are again greeted by spectacular views of mountains. While a rest day here aids acclimatization there are great optional walks to enjoy the area. We then follow the trail to famous Tengboche which is situated on a high ridge. It is a place from where a magnificent sight of Everest, the Lhotse-Nuptse Wall, Ama Dablam and Kantega can be seen and this peaceful and spiritual location is surely one of the most tranquil and inspiring places in the world.

While passing the way views of Everest get closer day by day. This eye-catching trek leads both Everest Base Camp(5310m) lap of Everest and Kala Pathar (5555m) where is the best recognised view-point to see Mount Everest. To be face to face with Mt Everest is a main goal of many adventurous walkers in this Everest Region. After having finished trek to base camp and Kala Pathar we return back to Kathmandu via similar way.
