Everest Base Camp Trekking often touted as one of the most beautiful of trekking trips in the whole world and rightly it is. Located at the lap of world's highest peak, Everest Base Camp (EBC) is rewarded as the best trip Nepal has to offer. Since 1920, Mt Everest has captivated intrepid men and women. There were some exploits of legends like Sir Edmund Hillary, George Mallory and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to put the mighty mountains on the map. Thousands of adventurers followed them making huge sacrifices. EBC Trek is designed to fulfill the dream of many people to experience the historic route to the base of world's highest peak. Since the beginning, Everest Base Camp Route has gained massive popularity and a lot of appreciation. The highlights of Everest Base Camp Trekking are the stunning views of Mount Everest, legendary Sherpa culture, wonderful Namche Bazaar, Tengboche Monastery, the best viewpoint of Kalapatthar, and beautiful Chhukung valley among many others. We gradually ascend through the wonderful Sherpa villages enjoying the magnificent Himalayan scenery, wildlife and visit a number of Buddhist Monasteries. EBC Trek culminates with a fine opportunity to trek to both EBC and nearby peak of Kalapatthar (5545m) for spectacular views of the Everest. Savoring the high mountain views with the unique and life defining journey, EBC trip can be combined with Gokyo Chola Pass Trek, or Everest Three Passes packages as well, making the journey bit more challenging and rewarding too. Encounters Nepal has carefully devised an itinerary with a number of rest days that offers an exceptional way to acclimatize safely. Having had hit the Himalayan Trails since so long, we have learned never to rush a trek to altitude in the Himalaya. Taking an extra few days makes all the difference to really being able to enjoy the trek and trekking in Nepal.

Trekking in Nepal is still the most favorite adventure holiday activity in the country. The two classic trekking routes either to Everest base camp or the Annapurna circuit are not easy and the challenge you'll face on either route will have a lasting effect. The Manaslu route trek around the world's eighth largest mountain is more remote but no less beautiful passing through stunning bamboo forests, villages filled with prayer flags and culminating with spectacular views from Larkya La. Mustang is an easier cultural trek, suitable for those with good general fitness but not necessarily any previous trekking experience. The language, culture and tradition of the Mustang region are still mostly Tibetan making this one of the most culturally interesting treks. There are shorter treks up the Langtang Valley and Helambu which are still hard work but also deeply rewarding. They generally begin in Kathmandu, leading through large grazing areas covered in flowers, dotted with stone huts used for butter making, Sherpa, Tamang villages and the homes of yak herders, right up to the Tibetan border.

Himalayan Spirit Adventure Treks & Expedition said...

Everest Base Camp Trekking is one of the most famous trekking destinations for adventure-seekers in Nepal. The Everest Base Camp Trekking is also referred to as Everest Base Camp –Kala Patthar Trek as the EBC Trek goes through the Kala Patthar region of the Everest. While the Everest Base Camp Trek offers a great opportunity to witness the world’s tallest mountain peak Mount Everest from a very close distance, the trek is also equally adventurous. The major highlights of the Everest Base Camp Trek are Namche Bazaar, popular region of Kala Patthar and the Everest Base Camp itself. Everest Base Camp Trekking traverses through the majestic looking mountains clad with snow, colorful monasteries, the famous Namche Bazaar and the conserved region of the Sagarmatha National Park. This also provides one with the opportunity of viewing at the Mountain Everest, world’s tallest mountain peak, from incredibly close distance.
The trek begins from Kathmandu with a flight to Lukla or the Tenzing-Hillary Airport. Flight to Lukla itself can be no less than an adventure as the airport is enlisted as the most dangerous airport in the world, by virtue of the location, altitude and topography. The real Everest Base Camp Trek commences from Lukla, when you start your trek to Namche and the Base Camp crossing many Sherpa villages and settlement areas on the way. Another feature of the Everest Base Camp Trek is the opportunity to visit Gokyo Valley, the Gokyo-Ri or the peak and the beautiful Gokyo Lake. Gokyo is one of the most beautiful villages in the Khumbhu region of Everest. Also, the popular Cho-La Pass lies along the Everest Base Camp Trek which offers great views of the mountains including the all famous Everest.
The total cost for the trip or the tour depends on several factors as per your convenience. The preferred type of accommodation in Kathmandu or Pokhara makes a difference in the totality of the cost (budget to 5 star accommodations). The chosen mode of transport also affects the cost of your package, for example the prices may vary widely from flight compared to private car / van, tourist or local buses. The number of guides and porters too affect the total cost of your trip. For these reasons the same route / tour price may vary considerably. If you want any further information regarding price
then you can also visit our official site.

“Trek to Everest Base Camp With Nepal Planet Treks ”
All of my thanks to Sanjib Adhikari and the professional team members of Nepal Planet Treks! My journey began with a flight from Germany to KTM. When I touched down at KTM I was picked up by Nepal Planet Treks and taken to the Hotel in Thamel . Then after a day’s rest we went back to KTM to fly to Lulka to begin our journey to Everest base Camp with lead guide Hari Adhikari and his team. Awesome rugged experience. Well planned, safe trekking practices and very educational guide. I plan on returning to do this trek in two years with my daughters. Many thanks again!

EBC Trek: Could never do it without the dedication of Nepal Planet Treks Guide and Porter”

Nepal Planet Treks has proved to the most reliable tour company in Nepal. From the start of the inquiry, I was asking alof of questions to Sanjib, the MD. He religiously answered each and every one of them with much patience. It was a first hand experience of dedication that I experienced. My guide for the trek was Raj Panth and porter, Sukman and Raj is an excellent guide, and a better friend, who made us feel safe in his care all the time. We were 2 ladies, so trust and comfort were important to us when assessing a guide, whom we have to be with for the next 12 days.

Raj is very mature for his age, and very interestingly, he is able to switch from a professional, serious guide, to a friend who could make us laugh with his silly jokes. The strenuous, long, trek over 12 days were spent playing catching and throwing snowballs, discussing life values, drawing portraits, dancing in the snow, and so much laughing. We enjoyed every moment. During the times when the whether wasn't too good, Raj switched to a seemingly serious, professional guide whom we can depend on for safety and navigation. He was also taking care of his porter, Sukman very well, ensuring his safety. Just like how a leader should be.

Sukman is a young 20 year old porter, who has such strength. He speaks minimal English, so we don't converse much. However, for many times, he went beyond his duties as a porter, and took care of us ladies by catching us when we fall, and staying back to walk slowly with us, rather than just walking at his usual fast speed and porting the bags from point A to point B.

The entire experience was life-changing, amazing, and I give 10 stars..heck even 100 stars, for such excellent service. Thank you Nepal Planet Trekking team you are best Team !!
