The Everest base camp Trek is a classic hike to the foot of breathtaking Everest, the world’s highest mountain. Besides taking you close to the world’s highest mountain, it also gives you a great insight into the local Sherpa culture and the high Himalayas from Everest base camp trek.

Starting from Lukla, The Everest base camp trek follows the classic route to the Everest Base Camp of Mt. Everest and Kala Patthar. Only a few people will ever get to ascend Mount Everest – climbing Everest takes more than 2 months, costs in excess of $50,000 and requires superhuman strength and courage. As for Everest Base Camp Trek, two weeks, $853 and half the strength brings you face to face to Sagarmatha, Mother of the Universe.

Your trek begins in Lukla, where you fly into from Kathmandu. From Lukla, you’ll follow the ‘Himalayan Highway’ along the Dudh Koshi Valley, through several dozen villages, for about 40 miles to the base of Mount Everest. After nine days of trekking, you’ll reach Gorak Shep, the Base Camp of the historical 1953’ Everest Expedition and the site where Peace Nepal Treks had successfully organized the 2009’ Everest Cricket Match.

After you make it to the Everest base camp trek you can also ascend Kala Patthar (5,600m), a big brown peak with its summit providing spectacular views of Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse. It is Kala Patthar and not the base camp that offers a panoramic view of Everest – due to the structure of this snow giant, it cannot be seen clearly from the base camp. You’ll spend two days around Gorak Shep, base camp and Kala Patthar, where you’ll get plenty of opportunities to take some photographs you can really be proud of. From Gorak Shep, you’ll retrace your steps to Lukla via Pheriche, Tengboche and Namche Bazaar, walking downhill throughout most of the trail. The hair-raising flight back to Kathmandu will mark the end of your two-week adventure.
