Everest Base Camp trek is the second popular trekking route in Tibet. And most of the time you will walk on a plateau over 4300m, you will even cross over one pass Nam-la 5300m, so this trekking route is a really difficult high-elevation. However, because of the high-altitude, it offers splendour views of north face of Everest and other snow mountain peaks around. The Everest Base Camp Trek tour can be done from April to late October. Our tour involves a few days sightseeing at Lhasa at first and some detour off the Friendship High way to Old Tingri to acclimatize.
Everest trekking offers you great opportunity to have unique experience. The Everest area is situated in eastern Nepal. It is protected by the Sagarmatha National Park, established in 1976 with an area of 1148 square kilometers. The park is largely composed of the rugged terrain and gorges of the high Himalayas. Altitude ranges from 2845 meters above sea level (9,330ft) to the top of the world, Mt. Everest at 8848 meters (29,028ft). Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world, which is known in Nepal as “Sagarmatha” the goddess mother of the world, has long been the greatest attraction for nature lovers and trekkers alike. Solukhumbu, the heart land of the Everest Region and an integral part of the Himalayan mystique, thus provides a welcome destination for these adventurers.
Throughout this trek trekkers are over whelmed with views of unbelievable peaks, Buddhist monasteries, and friendly Sherpa villages. Perhaps some may even have a glance of the Yeti. The local people believe that the Pangboche Monastery actually has in its possession the real scalp of this Himalayan legend. As we proceed slowly to allow for maximum acclimation, we will have plenty of opportunity to visit monasteries and Sherpa homes of this region. Most of our Sherpa crew comes from the Sherpa households of this area. Incredible views of Everest and the surrounding peaks are the inescapable fare while we ascend Kala Patthar.
