Trekking in the Everest Base Camp takes you to an elevation of 5,364m and allows you to witness the up-close view of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and number other peaks and offers close-peek to Sherpa culture & tradition. There are some strenuous long route to this Base Camp but here are the some of the quickest, shortest and easiest way to reach Everest Base Camp:
Everest Base Camp Trek (12 days)
12 days Everest Base Camp Trek takes you to base camp through the most used route of Khumbu region. After a trans-Himalayan flight to Lukla, we walk alongside of Dudh Koshi River and climb through rhododendron forest to reach Namche. After a day acclimatization and exploration at Namche, we continue our trek to Tengboche. Here we visit Tengboche Monastery, the largest monastery in Khumbu region. Then we continue our trek through Dingboche and Lobuche to Gorakhsep. From here we make a short hike to Everest Base Camp and return to Gorakhsep for comfortable night. We also make a pre-dawn hike to Kalapatthar (5,545m) which offers tantalizing view of sunrise and up-close view of Everest. We make a downhill hike to Lukla via same route we used previously.
Everest Base Camp Heli Trek
It is the best combination of wonderful trekking experience as well as luxurious heli ride from Gorakshep back to Kathmandu. EBC heli trek is ideal for those who wants to step foot on Base Camp of Everest but can’t afford more than two week to complete the regular Base Camp trip.
After completing Everest Base Camp Trek and exploring Kalapatthar, we make an exciting heli ride along the glacier, mountains and high valley which is sure to fascinate you. It is truly an awesome experience.
Everest Heli Tour
It is the best available option to experience this in just a day. It takes you close to glistering mountains almost in touching distance to enjoy the collection of soaring peaks and its dramatic glaciers.
Taking a helicopter ride to Everest is mesmerizing experience as you will be blessed with four 8,000m+ peaks and array of 6,000m+ & 7,000m+ peaks.
We will land for 5 – 10 minutes due to altitude risk. We land at view hotel (the highest hotel in Khumbu region) to enjoy the breakfast at the back-drop of Everest. Here we can interact with local people to get the insight of local culture and tradition.
