Adventurers from all over the world have long dreamed of settings their sights upon Mt. Everest, the undisputed crown jewel of the Himalayas. The famous Everest Base Camp Trek is your chance to get up close and personal with the awe-inspiring massif of the world’s highest mountain. Your journey will take you through the storied Khumbu region of Nepal, home to unrivaled natural beauty and the timeless traditions of local Sherpa culture. From beginning to end, your trek will be characterized with breathtaking views of forested hills, stark cliffs, mountainside villages, and towering glaciers. As you approach the very top of the world, a unique fusion of cultural splendor and pristine wilderness will leave an indelible mark upon your memory. There is a tremendous variety of incredible treks in Nepal, but there’s a reason that the Everest Base Camp Trek is consistently regarded as the finest in the world. Your adventure begins with a scenic half-hour flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, which offers some of the best aerial views of the Himalayas. As soon as you step from the plane, you’ll be caught up in the atmosphere of anticipation which permeates this little mountaintop town. Trekkers are coming and going, guides are meeting up with porters, and everyone is chatting excitedly about the challenges of the trail ahead. From Lukla, you’ll take your first real steps along the Everest Base Camp Trek, ascending through lush green forests. Along the way, you’ll encounter picturesque suspension bridges spanning torrents of clear water, mysterious woodlands dotted with vivid rhododendron blooms, and steep ridges affording incredible views of just how far you’ve come. And with each step you take, the spectacular peaks of the Himalayas will embellish the skyline with jagged summits and frozen glaciers, seeming to present a new and impressive aspect with every turn of the trail.
During the trek, you’ll visit some of Nepal’s most beautiful mountain villages. Among trekkers, the very names of these towns are legendary: Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, and Gorakshep, to name just a few. These overnight stops allow you to get acquainted with local Sherpa culture, which has remained largely untouched by modernization. Sherpa traditions here are informed by an ancient school of Tibetan Buddhism, and each village on your route has retained its own unique cultural heritage. Be on the lookout for traditional icons of Buddhist faith, including colorful strings of prayer flags and freestanding whitewashed stupas, or chortens. While hiking the exciting trails of the Everest Base Camp Trek, you’ll also have the chance to visit some of the most renowned monasteries and gompas in the country, such as Tengboche Monastery.
