The Everest Base Camp Trek gives you the chance to discover Sherpa culture and capture some of the world's best scenery. The adventure also features challenging terrain such as glacial moraines and the adrenaline-pumping steep climbs of Kala Patthar. If hiking to the EBC, allow approximately 3-4 hours of hiking each day of your trip. Moderate physical fitness is required. After exploring historic Kathmandu, take a short flight to the mountain village of Lukla (altitude 2800m). Trek through the stunning mix and showy vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park to the Sherpa 'capital' of Namche Bazaar. This is an interesting, bustling and friendly city, and surprisingly, even remote outposts and altitudes that communicate with the outside world so that almost anything under the sky can communicate from your location. Namche was once a trading post between Nepal and Tibet. Here you will acclimate for a day and head to the beautiful Changboche Monastery. At this peaceful landmark, we find ourselves among the Mani walls and prayer flags, whispering devotional songs to the gods for deceased souls and chortens. And soon you find yourself in the shadow of the majestic Everest Massif and Ama Dablam. Breathtaking. The trek from Chanboche climbs slowly but steadily to Dingboche, Lobuche and finally Gorek Shep, crossing the treeline and entering a harsher, lunar-like environment. Gorek Shep is actually the highest point we will stay at 5100m and we will take our time to reach this altitude after acclimatization. I am going on an afternoon trip. Drive past stunning glacier formations and enjoy the triumph of getting this far.
