EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK

(16 days)

A direct approach to the foot of the world's highest mountain - Mount Everest.
A trek designed to get you real close-up to the 'mother of all peaks' Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world.

Mount Everest Base Camp has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in the 1953. To reach this part of the Himalaya within a limited time, we have devised this two week trek to Everest Base Camp which runs directly to and from Lukla.

The Everest Base Camp trek, a very well known mountain trek, starts at the upper Phakding and follows the Dudh Kosi valley which climbs up to the Sherpa capital of Namche, a bustling bazaar that’s a junction for trekkers, the local Sherpa and expeditions en route to the mighty Mt. Everest. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it the kind of walk you will remember for a long, long time.

From Namche, we trek along a high traversing path where we have our first good views of Everest and then head towards Thyangboche Monastery, which is a 2 hour climb. The monastery sits at 3867m in a clearing surrounded by dwarf firs and rhododendrons. The monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. The view from this spot, seen to best advantage in the morning, is absolutely mesmerizing and stunning and is rightly deemed to be one of the most magnificent in the world.

We then descend to the Imja Khola and continue to the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche before finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. We then follow the glacier, first to Lobuche, a vantage point for some spectacular views of the Ama Dablam, Taweche and other peaks and then hike to Gorak Shep for a breather.

We also have the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar [5554m] from where we can get some awesome views of the Himalayan giants which literally numb your senses with breathless admiration that beholds the eye; and makes up for the lung-bursting climb that took you up there. You soon realize it was absolutely worth it. This also includes fantastic views of the south west face of the colossal Mt. Everest. We then trek down to Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu ice fall before finally making our way back down to Lukla.

EBC TREK / EVEREST REGION
“This is a note to thank you. Firstly though, allow me to apologise for the delay in getting thoughts and sentiments to paper. We have been back a number of weeks and life slowly drags you back into the quagmire of routine.

I was recently part of a group that spent time in Nepal – Kathmandu and the Himalaya primarily. (We were there in late April for three weeks) This was the first time that I have travelled to your beautiful country and our entire Nepal and Himalaya trip was truly spectacular!

I think for all first timers, Nepal and the majestic, challenging Himalaya – always are. What made the difference to our experience though was the quality of the people who guided and educated, welcomed and helped us – the family that looked after us whilst we were there. The more you spend time there, and allow the significance of your own experience to sink in the more powerful this realisation becomes. As you become able to accurately compare your support team to other groups on the trail – this degree to which the quality of your experience there is determined by your team becomes apparent.

We were truly blessed in this regard, and the quality of our experience, certainly mine (I do think I speak for us all though) – was off the charts, a special and unique, privileged time. The ground crew / Kathmandu crew at Explore Himalaya were competent, courteous, on time and wonderful. They bent over backwards when we changed schedules, and clucked and fussed around us to ensure we had a smooth time. They just made the cacophony and madness of Kathmandu, and logistics in Nepal in general a non-headache, which as I'm sure you know is a major thing.

They key factor however, that made our adventure truly special, unique and wonder-filled, was our guide, Da Yula Sherpa, and his team. He is a man amongst men, and with his brother and nephew – were the best team we could ever have hoped or imagined to have guide and look after us in the Himalaya. Da Yula's preparation, experience and attention to detail made our experience wonderful. I don't say this lightly – his attention to all details: - food, illness scenario's, logistics on the mountain, accommodation, routes, comfort, security, every conceivable variable that could have been prepared for and thought about - was incredible and so thorough. Being with them made the adventure rich in detail – we learned SO MUCH from him about Nepal, the people, the culture, the mountains, he and his team were so much more than walking guides. They were anything but that – and the unit we formed up there was incredibly special. They made our trip, and I will recommend them and you; Explore Himalaya unreservedly to anyone venturing to Nepal.

Without your input and guidance, we would not have had this unique experience – it is much and seriously appreciated. ”

EVEREST TREK

"Kudos to Explore Himalaya! You have made this trek a memory for a lifetime for us. We will never forget any moment of this trek. We promise to come back to us whenever we go on any trek in future as we do not want to look for any other travel companies in Nepal simply because they will not be anyway close to you with regards to efficiency. To handle a group of young lads from India that too 9 in number was some task...but that is what we thought. For you it was a job well done. Guys, The Final Dinner with Mr. Navin, Mr. Prabhakar and Mr. Samundra spoke a lot about the relation that we will be sharing after this trek. It was a pleasure to trek under your itinerary and the support staff that you have simply rocksss!  All in all, its a start of a wonderful relation all 9 of us will share with Explore Himalaya.”

"Yalamber was fantastic. Our trek & Tour guides and support staff were all very good. We very much appreciate your efforts in getting us out of Lukla on an early flight. Meals during the trek were excellent, considering the remoteness. Dingboche was fantastic. We suggest you to encourage trekkers to take an extra day to visit. We also suggest you use Family Hotel there - very nice."

"Thank you very much for the great support during our trek and more importantly your help after our return to Kathmandu. We had a great guide, Tiger (Bagbir), and porter. They both were very supportive during the entire trek. Tiger was very aware of our condition and health and made sure we stayed within our comfort zone. Your support staff in Kathmandu was great, what else can I say? Although we had some communication issues (mostly on my part), Kisan was always there to offer support. Thanks again!!!!!!"

"Our trek guide (Maule Tamang) was very informative and knowledgeable of the area and rather amusing company. The services in lodges during the trek were better than expected - very clean (except some toilets), friendly & hospitable staff with very good English. The meals during the trek were amazing. Good 'dal-bhat' even right at the top! Lukla airport landing was very memorable. Our itinerary was very good and well planned, but allow extra time in Kala Patthar and perhaps a rest day in higher altitude. Very happy with the selection of hotel in Kathmandu- good location, clean and peaceful."

"The meeting and handling was good. Mr. Kishan has been very helpful, good-natured and soft spoken. The itinerary was well planned. We would have liked the guide to give us enough information about the alternative lodges available during the trek. In Pheriche and Namche, we upgraded to different lodges and it was a much better experience."

"We heard about your company online. We are very happy with Explore Himalaya and its staff members. We had lost a bag and they helped us find it. All were very kind, especially Nirgaman and Bharat - they made our trip more enjoyable. The only suggestion I would like to give is give trekkers different options about where to eat and sleep during the trek. If it is more expensive we can decide to pay the difference."
