Everest base camp trekking is a famous and challenging trek in Khumbu Nepal. The trek is famous for its spectacular mountain peaks and friendliness of its inhabitants (Sherpa). The Everest region (Khumbu) is one of the most popular destinations for tourists in Nepal. While many of the routes through the mountains are difficult, there are ample places to rest and enjoy a meal along the way. The trekking is possible in this area, the whole year around, but the best times to visit are from the beginning of March to mid May and from the beginning of September to mid November.
The trekking to base camp begins early morning, by flight from Kathmandu to the mountain airstrip to Lukla, the heart of Everest Region, then around three hours walk we reach at Phakding and then we continue north up to Dudh Kosi valley and to Namche bazaar, there we spend a day for acclimatization. Next day, we continue our trekking to Kala Pattar and subsequently to Everest base camp; we have one day rest in Dingboche or Pheriche in between and for some side trips and further acclimatization. We have some magnificent views of Everest along with Nuptse, Lohtse and Mount Pumori and we return back to Lukla and catch our flight to Kathmandu.
