Everest Base Camp Trekking In Nepal is one of the best camp trekking that I have ever taken. Everest has been in my wish list of places to trek for so long. When it did finally happen, I was getting sceptical. However, thanks to the organizers for making this whole process a smooth one for me. I am so glad and happy to have actually taken this trek. Also, visiting Nepal was a splendid experience. Viewing Everest from Nepal is the best part of this trip. I just wish I can do this again soon.

Overview

Trip Starting From: Kathmandu

Trip Location: Kathmandu

About the Destination:

The mighty Everest needs no introduction. This Everest base camp trekking in Nepal would take you to the foot of the surreal wonder opening up some awe-inspiring avenues along the way. You will be whisked off to the charming destination of Nepal. The trip begins at Kathmandu, from where you will fly to Lukla, an alpine delight with crisp air and vibrant Buddhist prayer flags.

The thrills are plenty, enjoy the scenery of river and pine groves, cross a huge suspension bridge and stay in one of the best tea houses in Nepal. You will also get to unfold Namche Bazaar. Nestled amidst ridges in lofty peaks of Khumbu, it is an ancient market area where goods from as far as Tibet are sold. A golden highlight of the trip is the climb to Kala Pathar. Perched at 5500 meters (18,000 feet), it provides great views of Everest and the Khumbu Valley. Also, spend the night at Phortse hamlet, which is less visited and is placed at the mouth of the Gokyo Valley. This locale is popular for Sherpas who have climbed 8000der peaks. All in all a rip-roaring experience!

Altitude: 5360

Temperature Range: March to May and October to November ideal for a trek in Nepal. These times, the weather is neither too hot in the foothills nor too cold in the higher elevations. The post-monsoon months usually provide clear skies and the settled weather. During this time expect a wide range of daytime temperatures. On the lower reaches of the trek, the maximum daytime temperature will be around 25°C / 77°F, with night-time low around 10°C / 50°F. At our highest camps, the night-time temperature may fall as low as minus 5°C / 23°F.

    One of the best things about a trek like this is that it is tedious but that would definitely not stop us from enjoying it. This was one of the best treks ever. That being said, this needs a plenty of experience and fitness training. You don’t have to do a lot, a simple everyday workout sessions are good enough. Also, this is quite worth for the money paid, so you might love it.
