Everest Base Camp Trek

Overview

An iconic trip in the Everest region, the Everest Base Camp trek is challenging enough to placate those desiring a strenuous trail experience. The steep inclines and equally challenging descents at the heart of the Everest Himalayas make you forget gasping for breath and the bone chilling cold.  The trek to Everest Base Camp commences from Lukla, a wonderful village tucked inside some fairly spectacular mountains. The flight into and out of the small airport here is not for the faint of heart.  The views become more and more splendid as trekkers move from Lukla further into the surrounding terrain. After entering Sagarmatha National Park above the river, trekkers cross the steel bridges and see higher and higher hillsides dotted with juniper forest.  Namche Bazaar and Khumjung are villages in which trekkers rest and acclimatize before they go on to higher altitudes.  The views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Thamserku and the surrounding peaks that can be explored during the trek are fabulous. Though the trail is rugged and the upper section is dotted with grey moraine, the trip offers a meaningful spiritual richness while walking through Tengbuche, Dingbuche, Lobuche and Gorakshep. These villages are described as “soul-cleansing,” with remarkable Sherpa culture, monasteries, and Chortens, and mantra inscribed prayer flags flutter from many of the high points in each village.  The Everest Base Camp, itself, is a short hike from Gorakshep.  This trek itinerary depends on your walking ability and endurance and acclimatization. Shiva Excursion recommends some extra days be built into the schedule to allow for exploration and acclimatization and to avoid acute mountain sickness.
