Mount Everest for its size is a shy and retiring mountain. It hides itself away behind other mountains. On the north side, in Tibet, it does indeed stand up proudly and alone, a true monarch among mountains. But it stands in a very sparsely inhabited part of Tibet, and very few people ever go to Tibet. From the Indian side only its tip appears among a mighty array of peaks which being nearer look higher. Consequently for a long time no one suspected Mount Everest of being the supreme mountain not only of the Himalaya but of the world.
The idea of climbing Mount Everest has been vaguely in men’s mind since the late 19th century. Lord Curzon the former Governor General and Viceroy of India from 1899 to 1905 also had it in his mind when he had written suggesting that the Royal Geographical Society and the Alpine Club should make a joint exploration of the mountain.
On our Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal you’ll stand face to face with Mount Everest. On this journey of a lifetime, you’ll experience base camp life of Mount Everest climbers, trek to the infamous Khumbu Icefall, marvel at the stunning views from Kala Patthar, and absorb the culture of the friendly Sherpa people of Nepal.
This carefully constructed itinerary ensures proper acclimatization, allowing you to fully enjoy one of the world’s most stunning treks and discover why this Everest Base Camp Trek has become one of our most rewarding journeys.
Arrive at Kathmandu and explore Durbar Square, Hindu temples and shrines, Buddhist stupas – or you can just relax in your hotel. A favourite destination is the Monkey Temple, a Buddhist temple situated on a small hill that offers panoramic views of the city. Or you can join the thousands of Hindus who venture to the Pashupatinath temple, one of the most famous Hindu temples in Nepal and the most famous Shiva temple in Asia.
We fly on a twin-engine aircraft to the Himalayan foothills where we begin our trek into the Khumbu region. The sights from the plane are amazing, providing dramatic views of terraced hills and distant Himalayan giants. After landing in the village of Lukla (9,350 feet), we meet the rest of our staff and porters and trek for about two and a half hours to Phakding.
The Everest Base Camp Trek continues along the banks of the Dudh Kosi.We cross this river many times on suspension bridges laden with Buddhist prayer flags. After entering the Sagarmatha National Park, there is a steep trail with magnificent views to Namche Bazaar, which is the gateway to the Khumbu region.
Today on our Everest Base Camp Trek we take it easy and spend the rest of the day in Namche Bazaar to rest and acclimatize to the high altitude. Explore and take a walk around this colourful village and immerse yourself in its people and their culture. You can take an early hike above town to catch a glimpse of a Himalayan sunrise and get a view of Mt Everest,Lhotse(fourth highest peak in the world) and the beautiful Ama Dablam.
We continue trekking along the onrushing glacial waters of the the Dudh Kosi. We spend the night next to the Thyangboche monastery, the spiritual centre of the Khumbu region. Inside the Thyangboche monastery are ornate wall hangings and a 20-foot sculpture of the Buddha.
From Thyangboche we descend to Debuche and cross another suspension bridge on the Imja Khola. We then climb up to Pangboche among thousands of mani stones. Our uphill climb continues, taking us to Dingboche, a quaint traditional Sherpa village. From this village we get a great view of Lhotse, Island Peak, and Ama Dablam.
We take this day to rest and acclimatize to our Himalayan surroundings. If you want you can take a small hike up the valley to take photographs of the surrounding region.
Today’s trek continues along the lateral moraine (a moraine is a glacially formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris) of the famous Khumbu Glacier and passes by stone memorials for climbers who have perished on nearby summits.
On the 9th day we will weather permiting trek upto Kala Patthar (18,450). Kala Patthar is located on the south ridge Pumori (7,161 m or 23,494 ft). The ascent of Kala Patthar provides the most accessible point to view Mt. Everest as the peak cannot be viewed from the base camp. We then go down to Gorak Shep for the night. The next day we trek to Everest Base Camp.
After an early morning start, we trek to Everest Base Camp trek. We have lunch at the base camp and then head for the village of Pheriche.
In the morning we will enjoy tea and breakfast before our parting view of Everest and our descent. We head down the glacier and re-enter the lush and beautiful valleys, surrounded by spectacular snow-capped peaks. Upon reaching the village of Pheriche, you will have the opportunity to visit the Himalayan Rescue Association’s Aid Post.
This is the last day of your trekking in Nepal. Today you would have a long walk to Lukla. There will be a few up hill climbs but you will manage it very easily. The lush green beauty and forests will take your pain away. After this long trek we will reach Lukla. Celebrate the success of the Everest Base Camp Trek with the team with a sumptuous dinner and few drinks. Overnight stay at Lukla.
We depart for Kathmandu by air.Once you reach Kathmandu we drop you off to your hotel.
Everest Base camp trek ends.
