Everest Base Camp Trek – 17 Days

General Overview

Everest base camp trek is famous for its spectacular mountain peaks and the loyalty and friendliness of its inhabitants (the Sherpas). The Everest region (Khumbu) is one of the most popular destinations for tourists in Nepal. While many of the routes through the mountains are arduous, there are ample places to rest and enjoy a meal along the way.

Everest base camp trek is the adventure of a lifetime, a journey for those whose dreams soar higher than the clouds. Miles away from cars, modern amenities, you'll saturate your spirit in natural beauty and stretch your personal endurance beyond what you thought possible. The path begins in ancient Kathmandu, where you'll acclimate and explore the city at your leisure while anticipating your ascent. Your trek to Everest Base Camp at 5,364m (over 3.5 miles!) to the base of the world's tallest mountain will bring you over suspension bridges spanning chasms of thin air, through hidden Buddhist monasteries, and into the heart of the warm, rugged Sherpa culture. As you travel thrill seekers and photographers from all over the globe, you'll enjoy Cho Oyu, Lhotse, and Makalu - three of World's 10 tallest peaks! The accommodation and food supplies will be in cozy, traditional  teahouses. Sharing with our experienced, knowledgeable guides. They will try their best to ensure the safest, most enjoyable, most fascinating experience possible. We'll support local economies, discover hidden strengths in yourself, and make both friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

Eagle Treks and Expedition is one of the most professional agencies, as it takes good care of its valued customers. Trekking is possible in this area the whole year round, however the best times to visit are from the beginning of March to mid May and from the beginning of September to mid November. The winters are very cold and snow may make it difficult to travel higher than Tengboche. Summers, on the other hand, are wet, and the spectacular peaks often get lost in the clouds. April and early May is a good time to see the hedgerows and trees bursting into bloom, with rhododendrons, in particular, adding a spectacular splash of colour to the landscape. The views are much better after the summer monsoons have cleared the atmosphere of dust, but the days are shorter and cooler.
