Everest Base Camp Trekking offers you a lifetime experience of exploring the delightful Everest Himalayan vistas from the eye level. It is also a daring venture to quench the adventure thirst by leaving your footprint at the base camp of the world's tallest peak- Mt. Everest (8848 meters).
The trek kicks off from Lukla after a thrilling Himalayan flight from Kathmandu. The eternal motivation to be in the Himalayan heart pushes you towards the remarkable landscape of the Khumbu region. Don't be scared to cross the suspension bridge on the way to Namche Bazaar.
The Himalayan lifestyle is different than you might have predicted. The horseshoe-shaped Namche Bazaar is a bustling Sherpa town and a commercial hub in the Khumbu region. From here on, we hardly find houses that have not sent their members to the top of Mt. Everest. Thus, Sherpa is a world-renowned Himalayan leader.
The cultural impacts of Tibetan Buddhism are so high throughout the EBC trekking trail or let's say, in the whole Khumbu region. You will notice it while passing the beautiful Sherpa communities with the fluttering prayer flags and the inscribed Tibetan Mantras on the stones. This is further supported by the ancient monasteries in Pangbuche and Tengbuche.
Hiking towards the Everest Base Camp and the stunning viewpoint of Kalapatthar are exclusively magnificent from the last human settlement of this region- Gorakshep. The incredible Himalayan scenery of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, and many more surrounding snowy peaks reveal the reality of why thousands of tourists dream to experience the best adventure at Everest Base Camp Trekking in Nepal.

Before buying the return flight to your home, please note that you need to have at least an extra day so that you will not miss any important tasks in case of flight delay and cancellation. Flight cancellations can happen as the weather changes rapidly. So, the flights mostly take off in the morning.
