Everest Base Camp Trekking

Everest Base Camp Trekking

Everest Base camp is basic campsites on south Mount Everest that are used by mountain climbers during their ascent and descent. South Base Camp is used when climbing via the southeast ridge as well as a base camp visitor, while North Base Camp is used when climbing via the northeast ridge (Tibet side). The altitude of Everest Base Camp is 5,370 m. Everest Base Camp trekking is one of the most popular trekking routes in the Himalayas, Nepal and is visited by thousands of trekkers each year.

One of the primary goals of an Everest Trekking is to visit Everest base camp at an elevation of above 5370 meters. However, you cannot see Everest from the base camp, so most of our trekkers or climbers climb Kala Pattar, a 5545-meter bump on the southern flank of Pumori (7145 meters) which is highly rewarding for the views over the entire Khumbu Mountains.

To get near Everest Base Camp, either you can walk from Jiri 10 -12 days trek or drive to Sallery and 8 - 9 day trek or fly to Lukla and walk 6-7 days. Many trekkers or climbers fly to Lukla and take two days to reach Namche Bazaar.

Namche Bazaar is the Sherpa’s headquarters. Explore the Sagarmatha National park office, Sherpa typical monastery, Sherpa museum; Everest view point hotel, homeland of Sherpa village Kunde and Khumjung need one full day. Continue walking for 4, 5 hours to reach Tengboche, the famous monastery. Many tourists join the daily worship celebration in Tengboche monastery at 3PM or 6am. Passing through the Pangboche village, recommend an acclimatization day in Dingboche at an altitude of 4410 meters. Trek from Dingboche two days to reach Gorap-Shep. Group-Shep is the last spot for Tea house/Lodge for trekkers.
