Everest Base Camp Trek- 16 days

Trip Introduction
Everest Base Camp TrekOur Everest base camp trek is a great introductory trek for those travelers who wish to visit Everest base Camp. This trek offers sensational mountain views and an insight into the lives of the Sherpa people. Travelers who have good acclimatization health and have enough experiences over trekking in Himalayas can sign up for this two week trip. After exploring the temples, shrines, bazaars and restaurants of Kathmandu we take an exciting mountain flight to Lukla and trek up the Dudh Kosi Valley, surrounded by the soaring peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. It's a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, capital of the Kumbu Sherpas, where we are again greeted by spectacular mountain vistas. A rest day here aids acclimatization and there are great optional walks to enjoy the area. We then follow the trail to famous Tengboche, located high on a ridge where a magnificent 360-degree panoramic view awaits you. The views of Everest, the Lhotse-Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Kantega dominate this peaceful and spiritual location - surely one of the most tranquil and inspiring places in this world.

Everyday passing the Buddhist monasteries views of Everest and get closer to the mountain culture. This stunning trek visits both, Everest base camp and Kala Patthar (5550m), a viewpoint recognized as the best vantage point to see Mount Everest which is a premier goal for many adventurous trekkers in the Himalaya.  After trekking to base camp and Kalapattar we return at our leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for our return Trans Himalayan flight to Kathmandu.
