What to Expect
Getting to an elevation of 5,545m, Everest Base Camp Trek is an achievement. After a day exploration of the treasure troves in Kathmandu this trek begins with the electrifying flight to the airport in Lukla, which hangs on the edge of the cliff at 2,860m. While penetrating through the floral and faunal biodiversity of Sagaramatha National Park, the trial winds through the magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and firs. The gateways to scattered highland hamlets are adorned with Buddhist prayers engraved mani walls and fluttering prayer flags.

The stunning landscapes and the breathtaking views of Himalayan giants including Mt. Everest [8,848m], Mt. Lhotse [8,586m], Mt. Cho Oyu [8,188m] and Mt. Ama Dablam [6,812m] among others are frequent rewards throughout the Everest Base Camp trek. Visit to sacred Himalayan Monasteries including the one at Tengboche and encounter with the culture of native Sherpa families are astounding cultural highlights of this trek. Getting closer to colossal Everest, Kalapattar [5545m] is a breather offering the best view Everest and the fantastic glacial walk to the Everest Base Camp which lies at the foot of the Khumbu Icefall make the trek absolutely worthwhile.

  • Lukla airport or Tenzing–Hillary Airport is a shortest point to start trek to Everest base camp by flight. It lies at the altitude of around 2845 meter in the Himalaya. Hence, to avoid bad weather condition, entire airlines operate their flight in the morning time.
  • Due to unfavorable weather conditions, flight to/from Lukla gets delayed or even canceled for one, couple or more days. It might be happened at the time of your trek start or at the end of your trek. Also, you might need to aspect this kind of obstacle even in best season of Nepal.
