Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp trek, a very well known mountain trek, starts at the upper Phakding and follows the Dudh Kosi valley which climbs up to the Sherpa capital of Namche, a bustling bazaar that’s a junction for trekkers, the local Sherpa and expeditions en route to the mighty Mt. Everest. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it the kind of walk you will remember for a long, long time.

Everest Base Camp trek also gives an insight into the lives and culture of Sherpa people who are local to the area and closely linked to the Tibetans on the other side of the summit. The views of the sunrise on the snow capped peak above the Khumbu Glacier is an unforgettable sight from the summit of Kala Pathar.
