Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp - 15 Days

Classic Everest Base Camp Trekking – 15 Days

Everest base camp trek in Nepal is a Classic and Affordable Trek to the World’ s Most Famous Mountain 

Everest base camp trek in Nepal is a must do trek in your life time if you are an outdoor lover. Dozens of companies offer Everest base camp trek, but we believe our experience, safety precautions, and solid record of trekking, hiking and climbing in the Himalayas make your best choice for this great adventure.

CNN International recommended Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal as one of the best top ten adventure trip in the world for 2011. So come and join us for a trip of the life time, where Orange monasteries are bestowed with colorful prayer flags; carved prayer mani stones line the trails; and an unbending faith in traditional values embrace this Sherpa world of Everest Khumbu region. We also climb Kalapathar (18,190ft) for a stunning close up panoramic view of Everest and other major peaks.

Mt. Everest Named after Sir George Everest, the British Surveyor General of India at the time when the mountain was first identified as “Point XV” on the border with Nepal and Tibet. To the Sherpas and Tibetans however she is “Chomolungma” – Mother Goddess of the Earth. And the Nepalese have their own name, “Sagarmartha” – Top of the world!

At the foot of Mount Everest, on its southern side, lies the Everest Base camp used by the successful 1953 expedition of late Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Sherpa and countless Everest expeditions ever since. Although situated in the heart of the Himalayas, at a height of 5600 metres (18,370ft), a trek or hike to Everest Base camp is not the sole preserve of high altitude mountaineers. There are no rocky ridges to traverse, no scrambling or technical climbing, just a good well-graded path, accessible to all keen hikers and trekkers, which leads all the way to the foot of the world’s highest mountain.

However one element that should not be underestimated is that your efforts to experience the Everest trail and its fabulous culture, history and scenery, will all take place at altitude. The key to trekking to Everest Base camp is therefore careful pacing and plenty of time to acclimatise. With more than a decade experience of organising Himalayan treks you can be sure that all Earthbound Expeditions treks to Everest Base camp allow optimum acclimatisation – with some days spent either just walking for a couple of hours or at rest. When choosing a trek to Everest Base camp another factor to look for is whether you will actually reach Base camp or instead, visit the nearby viewpoint peak of Kala Pathar only.

Kala Patar, rather than Everest Base camp itself, offers the best close-up views of Mt. Everest. As we appreciate that reaching Base camp is the main goal for many trekkers and walkers, all of our Everest itineraries include both Everest Base camp and Kala Pathar.

  • 02 : Kathmandu - Lukla (2880m) - Phakding (2740m).

    Our early morning flight by Twin Otter aircraft rushes us to Lukla, the most renowned mountain airstrip in the world. On the flight we watch the rugged foothills give way to the snowline of the Himalaya; many of the world’s highest mountains, including Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu (the world’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th highest respectively) may sometimes be seen from the window of the plane.

  • 03 : Phakding - Namche (3445m).

    The first day may have been surprisingly long for some, but stay at Phakding allows us to begin the ascent to Namche Bazaar first thing in the morning. At about half-way up the hill, a gap in the trees allow us to spy Everest for the first time. If the weather is clear the top of the South-West Face will be just visible behind the long Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. A plume can often be seen stretching away from the very summit.
    Namche is the most prosperous and the largest town in the Khumbu. A bazaar is held here every Saturday. The wares on display include grains and vegetables, tennis shoes and trinkets as well as hand woven aprons and Tibetan boots. The Sherpas play host to trader from the foothills, as well as Tibetans from over the border. Thamserku (6648m), Kwangde Ri (6187m) and Khumbila (5707m) surround the natural bowl that Namche sits in.
