The EBC Trek trail follows the traditional route from Lukla to Gorakshep via Phakding, Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche. Once in Gorakshep, you will have the opportunity to hike to Everest Base Camp (5364m) and Kalapather (5500m). After completing this memorable journey, we will return to Lukla and eventually to Kathmandu. If you wish to return to Kathmandu quickly after conquering Everest Base Camp, there is an option for a heli-ride back tour available for an additional fee.

The Everest Base Camp trek is situated on the southern side of Mt. Everest, towering at an impressive height of 8848.6 meters (29031.70 feet), proudly holding the title of the highest peak on Earth. Located on the border of Nepal and Tibet, this majestic mountain features two base camps, each on opposite sides. The north base camp is in Tibet, while the south base camp, known as the Famoy, is in Nepal. Both base camps offer an awe-inspiring experience for climbers aiming to conquer this challenging summit. However, it is the south Everest Base Camp, nestled in the stunning Sagarmatha National Park in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal, that truly enchants backpackers, hikers, trekkers, and climbers alike. The National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1976, covering a vast area of 1,148 square kilometers and housing various rivers, sherpa communities, Yak and Yeti, breathtaking peaks, and a diverse range of indigenous flora and fauna. The Everest Base Camp Trekking is renowned as one of the most thrilling and sought-after trails globally after the historic first ascent on May 29, 1953, by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. It offers a perfect blend of challenge and reward, making it a highly popular choice among hikers and climbers worldwide.

The South Base Camp (5364m) of Mount Everest on the Nepal side offers a variety of trails and options to cater to different budgets and preferences. It is widely believed that a trip to Nepal is incomplete without embarking on the Everest Base Camp trek.

Apart from the enchanting landscapes, we have the opportunity to engage with the indigenous Sherpa communities and immerse ourselves in their way of life, including their customs, traditions, and warm hospitality throughout the entire journey. The presence of Buddhism-inspired prayer flags, Chortens, Mani walls, and Gompas adds a profound sense of spirituality as you delve deeper into this captivating land of Sherpa, Yeti (snowman), diverse flora, and fauna.
