Everest Base Camp Trekking
The Everest trek is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed. The trek to the base camp of Everest passes through arguably the best trail in the world; you are after all trekking to the base of highest mountain in the world and to stand directly below the towering giant will be a momentous day in anyone’s life. This route has been gradually perfected over the years so that you trek through wilderness in true sense of the word. The ascent is a gradual one so that acclimatization is made easier and you are fully acclimatized even before you reach base camp.
The trek to Everest base camp is first kick-started with a walking tour of the city of Kathmandu and all its architectural and cultural wonders. Then it is short a flight to Lukla airstrip which itself is a marvel – this experience is also something to recount when you go back home. On arrival, we will be welcomed by our Sherpa guide ( aka Sirdar ) and rest of the trekking crew including cooks and porters. We commence our trek gradually up from the Dudh Koshi river up to Sherpa inhabited settlements and then to even higher awe-inspiring mountain country. Our trails are tailored such that they do not follow the commonly used ones and along the way we will be greeted by warm and friendly villagers.
Namche Bazaar will be just one of those major villages. By this time we will be well and fully acclimatized and will tread on the footsteps of renowned mountaineers as we make our way to the Everest base camp. If it is the climbing season of Spring we will witness climbers snaking their way up to the summit. The next day will see ourselves making our way to Kala Pathar ( 5545 metres or 18,188 feet ) and this is where we get an opportunity to view the full glory of peaks like Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Makalu. We trek back to Lukla and celebrate our successful adventure. Our services include everything from flights into Lukla, food, porterage, accommodation, sleeping bags and highly trained and experienced Sherpa guides some of who are Everest summiteers.
