Mount Everest Base Camp has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in the 1950's. To reach this part of the Himalaya within a limited time, we have devised this two week trek to Everest Base Camp which runs directly to and from Lukla. The Everest Base Camp trek, a very well known mountain trek, follows the Dudh Kosi valley and climbs up to the Sherpa capital of Namche, a bustling bazaar that’s a junction for trekkers, the local Sherpa and expedition’s enroute to the mighty Mt. Everest. From Namche, we trek along a high traversing path where we have our first good views of Everest and then head towards Thyangboche Monastery, structurally located on a ridge-top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. We then descend to the Imja Khola and continue to the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche before finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. We then follow the glacier, first to Lobuche, a vantage point for some spectacular views of the ‘Ama Dablam, Taweche and other peaks and then hike to Gorak Shep for a breather. We also have the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar from where we can get some awesome views of the Himalayan giants that literally numb your senses with stunned admiration that beholds the eye; which makes up for the lung-bursting climb that took you up there. You soon realize it was absolutely worth it. This also includes fantastic views of the south west face of the colossal Mt. Everest. We then trek down to Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu ice fall before finally making our way back down to Lukla.
