Mount Everest

The highest mountain in the world

The Everest Base Camp trek – thanks to the amazing views of the mountains and the possibility to meet other cultures – is one of the most popular trek in the world. It takes us to the very heart of the world's highest mountains. The Mount Everest region offers an incredible and majestic panorama of snow-capped summits. Everest Region has four out of eight highest mountains lie in Nepal: Mount Everest (8848 m), Lhotse (8516 m), Makalu (8445 m), and Cho Oyu (8201 m). During this trek you can experience Buddhist culture and the daily lives of Sherpas living in the highland areas of Nepal. The scenic setting of monasteries makes this trek even more attractive. The trip to Everest Base Camp is definitely going to be a life time trip for those who are keen on outdoor adventures. Probably only the Everest Base Camp trek has so many possibility to let you explore into the hidden attractions of Nepal Himalayas. Once you are in trek to Everest Base Camp trip, there are so many places you can take the side trip which offers you great view of Mt. Everest and its surroundings.  Minimum of two days acclimatization are recommended while doing the trek to Everest Base Camp. If you have one or two spare days it would be even more feasible to reach your goal to Everest Base Camp because for some people need a bit more acclimatization time which we never know how our body will react on the gaining altitude. Usually two weeks of time is enough for Everest Base Camp trek but to be more safe with the delays in flight, need of some spare day for acclimatization and doing some sightseeing in Kathmandu better is to have about 19-21 days of your holiday for the Everest Base Camp trek

The most popular way to get to Everest Base Camp trek is a 25-minute flight to Lukla where the hike starts and ends.
