Everest Base Camp Kalapathar Trek from the last village of Gorak Shep will combine to give you the most dramatic introduction to Everest possible. Base Camp offers the Khumbu Glacier, the infamous ice fall to the Western Cwm and, in spring, the preparatory conditions of mountaineers. Kala Patthar, behind the village, offers close-up views of Everest, Nuptse, the South Col and a ring of lesser peaks with beautiful Pumori next to you.

This Everest base camp trekking  begins with a scenic 35 minute flight to the northwest of Kathmandu and lifts you to Lukla (2780m) where you will meet your porters and set off, through farmland and forest along trails that have been trodden for centuries. Take time to observe local architecture, customs and habits; put aside “foreign ways” and enjoy the pace of life devoid of wheels, rush and time constraints. Let the setting consume you as you mingle with the people and experience their lifestyle, beliefs, skills and warmth. Prayer flags, chortens, mani walls and gompas will testify to the importance of Buddhism in their lives.

Our Everest Base Camp trek Nepal is carefully structured to minimize the risks of altitude sickness (AMS) by limiting the length of each day’s walk and the gain in altitude. A rest day at the vibrant town of Namche Bazaar allows for an acclimatization walk to explore Khumjung, the largest Sherpa Village in the region before dropping back “low” for the night. As the EBC trekking trail rises, the villages become smaller, the vegetation and crops change to cope with shorter growing seasons, your pace becomes slower and the scenery more dramatic. A second acclimatization day is required at Dingboche, after which you gradually climb to the last village of Gorak Shep.

The Mount Everest Trek  return journey, whilst quicker as you lose altitude, is no less spectacular and also affords the opportunity to re-observe, re-assess and enrich your experience. 

This strenuous trek requires fitness, good boots, warm/waterproof clothing, a good sleeping bag, a day pack camera sunscreen and hat. Our Everest trek package includes transport, porters, meals, accommodation and drinking water. 

Spring (March - May) and autumn (September - November) are the most popular trekking months, but Mountain Mart Treks’ adventure team offers this trek in all four seasons.
