Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most desired by many trekkers and a visit to Mount Everest is the lifetime dream of many people. Being the ideal chance to take in the majestic mountain panoramic view and the splendid beauty of the region's scenery this trekking takes its position in the top rank among 1st trekking on a world stage. This Everest Base Camp trek winds climbs and descends its way through lush lowland and alpine forest, Buddhist monasteries and authentic Sherpa Villages. Highlights of this trek include the lifestyle of the high Himalayan people, their religion, customs and traditions, rare birds like the golden eagle, snow pigeon, Red-billed and yellow-billed coughs and flowers like rhododendron, magnolias, blue pine, chair pine, juniper, and hemlock make the Everest trekking a delight for nature lovers.
Everest Base Camp trek involves a remarkable amount of up and down hike-walking. Teahouse Everest trekking is possible on the main trail to Everest Base Camp. While the visit to Everest Base Camp is the goal for many trekkers, the view of Everest itself from the base camp can be disappointing. For the best views of Everest, we recommend taking the Kalapatthar Trek. This trek can be completed in conjunction with the Everest Base Camp Trekking.

How hard is this trek to Everest base camp?

This is one of the exciting treks on world highest mountain base camp; walk is moderate but adventurous due to high altitude of above 3,000 meters. We have set enough rest days to get acclimatize well before heading to Everest base camp at 5,334 m / 15,500 ft high.

How cold and what to expect on this trek?

Depending upon the season of trekking, autumn and winter months can get cold above 2,000 meters especially morning and night time but the day is pleasant with sunny days most of the season. Other season beside monsoon / wet months is pleasant with occasional thunder showers during late afternoon.

How are the lodge and foods on route trekking?

As you will be trekking on mainstream trekking trails, the lodges are nice and cozy with attached bathrooms available till Namche, from then on lodge are simple and basic but clean with common bathrooms. Foods are as per the menu from Nepali set meals of Dal Bhat, Noodles (soup or fired) continental / Chinese to Mexican and Italian with Indian verities. It is better to stick with vegetarian food while on trek as it is not healthy due to hygiene. Higher above 4,000 m food menu are limited due to remoteness and high terrain climate conditions.

    Everest Base Camp Trek 13 days with View Nepal Treks and Expedition The Communication with View Nepal Treks was so quickly and fully answered my questions before the trek started. They picked us up from the airport for a smooth transition into Nepal. They owner briefed us very well before start our trek and took us reliable trekking gear shop in Thamel to make sure we were equipped well. Our guides Pasang and Laxman we great, they were so helpful and always happy to solve the problem.They made sure to put our safety first and always checking our AMS symptom. They were also great to have fun and communicating with locals and quickly create a homely atmosphere because they both were locals and they brought us up to Everest Base Camp with no rush and push up beyond our limit and made all trip quiet sure for room and food. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone considering the trek to EBC. If you have any questions regarding the Owner Mr. Bhupendra and his company View Nepal Treks and expedition and any topics about trekking and touring please drop me a message. Thank you all team for the wonderful time in Nepal.
