Mount Everest – perhaps the only mountain known by everyone, sporty or nerdy, adventurous or prudent. Being the highest mountain above sea level on Earth, many mountaineers mark conquering the 8,848m on their bucket list. The risk involved, however, is a setback for most people who wish to enjoy the picturesque Everest scenery. But now, there is a moderate alternative for common folks – The Everest Base Camp Trek.

Everest Base Camp Trekking is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. With an elevation of 5,634m and approximately 65km long from Lukla to EBC (130km around), you can fully experience the sublimation of nature with the promise of breathtaking icefalls, panoramic mountain views and massive glaciers. Besides the scenery, during the stay in villages and exploration of different monasteries, you will have the chance to have an in-depth understanding of the Sherpa’s unique way of living and the deep linkage of their lives to the mountains.

This trip lets you have the most sincere dialogue with Nepal’s nature and culture. Besides featuring different worldwide famous mountains, including Mt. Khumbila, Nuptse, Khumbuste, Pumori and most importantly, Everest, you can also have the chance to see the Khumbu Glacier and Icefall along the way. Even the most ordinary scenes – golden wheat fields swaying in the wind, blooming rhododendrons, lush forests with wild, gentle animals – are worth being framed and captured on camera. Throughout the trek, there are chances to stay in local Himalayan villages, visit monasteries or even observe religious rituals performed there.

Our trekking package also features the famous city – Kathmandu. Known as the “City of Temples”, Kathmandu is the cradle of Nepal’s civilisation. Used to be the capital of different kingdoms, this place contains many important cultural and historical sites. You will have the chance to unfold years of the history of Nepal as we venture around the city.

Generally, the ideal trekking season would be Spring (March – June) and Autumn (September – December). For Spring, with winter has just come to an end, the sky clear, and the mountain tips covered by snow, it is a good choice for Annapurna Circuit Trek. For hills above 3,500m, they would also be covered by snow. There may be short showers, yet most days are warm and sunny. For Autumn, after the monsoon and before the cold sets in, this period is perfect to trek if you are looking for a paranormal view of the mountains. The sky is cloudless, with lush plants shimmering under the gentle sunshine. Although the snow is less than during the Spring season, it is the best time for the crystal clear view. The temperature is also perfect – not scorching hot during the day and durably cool at night.

Everest Base Camp trek is suitable for time-abundant trekking beginners who wish to unveil the beauty of Everest in a chill way. We also offer other treks of the Everest Region: the 8-day Everest Panorama Trek for trekking newbies, the 22-day Everest Base Camp Jiri Trek for advanced trekkers and the 15-day Gokyo Valley Trek.
