Everest Base Camp Trekking 20 days



Everest Base Camp Trekking is one of the popular destination for trekkers since Sir Edmund Hillary first scaled the Mt Everest in 1953. This vast diverse trek takes you through such famous places as Namche Bazar, Hotel Everest View in Syangboche, Khumjung Valley, Tengboche Monastery, Gorakhshep and Kalapattar, with the highest altitude reached being 5545m. The exciting highlands will challenge your senses with nonstop breathtaking views and wonders around every corner.  Buddhist monasteries line the route, taking advantage of the sublime scenery to foster meditation and contemplation. With every step higher, the view of Mt. Everest gets closer and closer.  To ease acclimatization to the altitude, we will have rest days in the villages of Namche and Dingboche, giving us ample opportunities to explore those villages and surrounding areas even more deeply.  After trekking to the magnificent promontory of Kalapattar, from which the entire Everest massif can be viewed in a spectacular 360-degree panorama of the highest mountains on Earth, we return at our leisurely pace back to Namche Bazar and Lukla for our return flight to Kathmandu.

If you are designing your Nepal trekking program to Everest Region during March – November, you will also have an opportunity to observe the world famous Dumje festival and Mani Rimdu festival.
