Everest Base Camp Trek with Travers Nepal-Best Packages

If you've ever dreamt of immersing yourself in the grandeur of some of the world's tallest peaks, the Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal offers an unparalleled experience. This journey is suited for both novice and seasoned trekkers, with a moderate to challenging level of difficulty. It provides an opportunity to embrace the mountain lifestyle, as well as the rich traditions and beliefs of communities like the Sherpa, Rai, Limbu, and Lama.

Over the course of 14 days, you'll embark on a trek that culminates at the base of the world's highest peak, Mount Everest. You'll also ascend to the renowned vantage point, Kala Patthar. The trail guides you through lush rhododendron and magnolia forests in the initial days, gradually ascending above the treeline to traverse glacier fields and moraines.

Setting out from Lukla, situated at 2,846 meters (9,337 ft), the trek takes off on the second day with a flight from Kathmandu (1,400 m/4,600 ft) to Lukla, gaining an elevation of 1,446 meters (4,737 ft). To mitigate altitude-related risks, a descent to Phakding village (2,610 m/8,563 ft) is made on the same day, aiding in acclimatization.

Incorporating ample acclimatization days into the Everest Base Camp trek itinerary is a crucial aspect of the journey. These days offer the chance to immerse yourself in the local culture and interact with residents. Two acclimatization points, Hotel Everest View (3,962 m/13,000 ft) and Nagarjuna Hill (5,100 m/16,732 ft), provide breathtaking panoramic views.

The route treats you to stunning mountain vistas throughout the trek, showcasing peaks like Lhotse (8,516 m/27,940 ft), Cho Oyu (8,188 m/26,864 ft), Makalu (8,481 m/27,825 ft), Kanchenjunga (8,586 m/28,169 ft), Everest (8,849 m/29,032 ft), Ama Dablam (6,812 m/22,349 ft), and Thamserku (6,608 m/21,680 ft). Alongside these sights, captivating sunrises and sunsets punctuate your journey. The adventure leads through the scenic Sagarmatha National Park, offering glimpses of diverse flora and fauna, enchanting river valleys, exhilarating suspension bridges, undulating hills, and picturesque villages. The locals, particularly the Sherpas, extend warm hospitality, enhancing the cultural experience. En route, you'll also visit ancient monasteries such as Tengboche (3,860 m/12,660 ft) and Pangboche (3,985 m/13,074 ft).

The Everest Base Camp trek is a lifetime exploration through the Himalayas of Nepal. It bestows fresh mountain air, nourishing sustenance, friendly locals, profound cultural heritage, and nature at its zenith, leaving you spellbound. By the journey's end, you'll feel revitalized and rejuvenated. Our Everest Base Camp trek cost and itinerary are designed to offer you the finest experience, devoid of hidden charges or policies.

For those seeking an alternative return, a helicopter flight from Gorak Shep can be arranged. Group helicopter flights can substantially lower individual costs, enhancing convenience during peak seasons.

Contingencies have been factored in, considering the potential cancellation of flights to Lukla, particularly in the offseason. We recommend reserving a buffer day in your itinerary. Should your flight be canceled, the option of a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is available at an additional cost.
