Welcome to the lap of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest! Everest base camp (EBC) trek is one that has been attempted by adventurous trekkers from all around the world. The thrill of getting so close to Mount Everest as well as facing the challenges of the trail makes this trek an adventure of a lifetime! The 12-day long trek to the highest elevation of 5545 meters at Kalapatthar is definitely a challenge with its high altitude, tricky trails with slippery, snowy paths, steep ascends, and chances of snowfall and avalanches.

Khumbu region is a popular trekking destination as the home of Mount Everest. After the dangerously exciting flight to Lukla, our trek enters Sagarmatha National park after which you continue your journey among beautiful forests, mountain vistas, and scenic landscape. The magnificent views of Kwangde, Nuptse, Lhotse, Kantega, Ama Dablam and Everest among many others greet you along the trail making you never want to leave the heavenly region.

The traditional settlements in Namche and other villages along the trail give a glimpse into the unique culture and traditions of Nepalese in the high mountains. Another similarly unforgettable moment is at the Tengboche monastery with its ancient beauty and the majestic peaks shining in the background. With the friendly smiles and warm hospitality of the people in the high altitudes with harsh environment, you get to experience the simple, undisturbed yet fulfilling life in the mountains.

Day 04: Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar

As we cross the 3000 meters mark, it is very important to let our body acclimatize to the elevations Altitude sickness is one of the most serious problems for trekkers and climbers all over the world.

During this rest day, we can either rest and save up energy for the remaining days or go for short hikes around the Bazaar. People usually go to Khunde and Khumjung villages. The head of a yeti in a monastery, a bakery in the highest elevation and the panoramic views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse and many others in the area are the highlights of the hike.
