All About Everest Base Camp

How proud would it be if you achieve a feat which is not possible by all the humans on earth? I bet each one of us is dreaming about it and some are even planning to go ahead with it. For a runner, weight lifter, musician, it would be beating their records. For a hiker or a trekker, it would be conquering the highest mountain ever discovered by humans. That’s right, the highest peak in the world, Mount Everest. Thousands of mountaineers and trekkers come from all around the world to achieve their biggest dream. Below is a guide, if you are one of the trekkers who wish to witness the earth’s Heaven.

 Everest Base Camp Trek

 This trek is one of the most popular and adventurous trek spots in Nepal as well as in the whole world. Thanks to Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, we now have a fixed route for you to achieve your dream. It takes us through several Sherpa villages, glaciers, and monasteries with stunning views throughout. This trek is considered the grandest walk in the Himalayas.

 Everest base camps consist of two base camps, namely the South Base Camp which is in Nepal at an elevation of 5,364 meters, and the North Base Camp in Tibet at a height of 5,150 meters. Both are on opposite sides of Mount Everest. These camps are considered as rudimentary sites on Mount Everest and are used by trekkers during their climb.

 Perks of the trek!

 No worries if you get lost, the Shepherds (with no language barrier!) in the villages would take care of you and help you reach the camp. 

 Ideal time of visit

  The best time to make the trek possible is between September to mid-November and between March to mid-May. If I were you, I wouldn’t choose winter because the freezing ice and snow would increase the level of difficulty while trekking. The peaks are literally lost amid the clouds during summers and that would be something I would see for myself! Thus, April and May it is!

 Why Everest Base Camp?

 1. Mountain Flight to Tenzing–Hillary Airport

 The trek starts from Lukla. You would pay millions to take the 40 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla because of the awe-inspiring views of the Eastern Himalayas.

Don’t miss the prayer ceremony that happens every day so you trap the vibe of harmony and peace.
