Everest base camp trek is one of the most scenic and popular trek in Nepal. The Himalayan Buddhist practices, Sherpa culture and majestic peaks make the trek the most appealing. Everest National park is enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site for its dramatic landscapes, glaciers, alpine lakes and its fragile eco system that sustains rare species like Snow leopard and Lesser Panda. Everest Base camp trek is moderate – difficult trek with accommodation options available from basic teahouse to deluxe and luxury lodges in most of the places.
The trek starts with one of the most scenic Himalayan flight that hovers along the snow peaks east of Kathmandu and land in airstrip at Lukla at 2,800 m. The route then follows Bhote Koshi River valley wedged between snow peaks of Kusum Kanguru and Kongde, upstream to its confluence with Dudh Koshi and then climbs to Namche bazar. The walk is thrilling with alpine landscape with view of snow peaks from the very first day. At the altitude of Namche bazaar, the trail comes out of the tree line offering up close view snow peaks in almost 360 degree. Namche, Khumjung, Tengboche and Pangboche are the villages at the highest point in the world and are dwellings of Sherpas. Finally we trek out of the Sherpa dwellings and head off to their yak pastures at Pheriche and Dingboche spending enough time for acclimatization. Everest base camp is camp settlements of mountaineers in the glacial moraine surrounded by spectacular peaks all around. However Everest base camp is too close for view of Mt Everest itself. A short climb to Kalapatter (5,550 m) offers the best sunset view over Mt Everest.
It is my second experience with iTourNepal and, as last year, it was EXCELLENT! iTourNepal is truly an eco and socially responsible tour company focusing on sustainability. The team is highly experienced, professional and resourceful. Rabi is extremely knowledgeable, resilient and always available. You will always feel heard and taken care of. I am already planning my next vacation with iTourNepal for next year!
We found Anna Nepal Trek on the internet and worked with them to plan several different tours in Nepal. Rabi helped us to plan a trip to see Chitwan and then a trek to Tengboche Monastery (part of the Everest Basecamp Trek). Rabi was so responsive in helping us plan our trip. He gave us lots of information and different ideas to consider. Our guide for the trek, Saroj, was amazing. He was so knowledgable about Nepal and the history of the country and people. I can't say enough positive things about, Rabi and Saroj. They are so knowledgable about the areas and country. If you go to Nepal, please work with Anna Nepal Trek.
