This trek has been one of the early passage ways for trekkers beginning of their expeditions to the top. Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar is a two-week journey, full of great challenges and adventure, as one enjoys the pleasure to being so close to the highest mountain on the earth. also the views are magnificent with shining cristal-covered peaks, fabulous glaciers, Buddhist culture-vallelys Sherpa settlements. Similarly, centuries-old monasteries and a friendly environment full of smiling Sherpa people.
So, it is time for our trek orientation before the thrilling and exciting flight to Lukla, the world famous airport, to start the trek to Everest Base Camp. We begin walking along the Dudh Koshi River and passing on the Hillary Bridge, one of the highest bridges on the planet. Then we climb up to the gateway of Sherpa settlement in Namche Bazar, where you spend two nights to ensure proper acclimatization. From Namche Bazar lakewise, you hike up to Everest View Hotel, the hidden valley of Khumjung to see the world’s where only yeti scalp and the nearby village of Khunde. Leaving Namche, we make our way to Kayngjuma, then on to Phortse via Dingboche, following less frequented route to Everest Base Camp. Scenic Dingboche is situated in the sunny valley in front of the imposing Ama Dabalam Mountain – a great place to stay two nights to acclimatize to the lower oxygen levels you will encounter above 5000m.

The landscape on this trek becomes more and rockier as we ascend above the tree line on the moraines of Khumbu Glacier to Lubuche and Gorakshep, the last Guest houses before Everest Base Camp. Getting to our target of EBC requires trekking over the rocky moraines, which can be difficult but also motivating as the Base Camp is always in sight. Kalapatthar (5,550m), which we will ascend the following morning, will be the highest elevation we reach on our trek. From Kalapatthar, we enjoy an obvious view of the tallest Himalayas peaks, including Mt. Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,414m) Ama Dabalam and Pumori (7,165m) etc. We will conclude our trek by heading down to Pheriche and Teyngboche, the latter of which houses a famous monastery, and proceeding back down to Lukla where we fly back to Kathmandu.
