There is no other place in the world as spectacular as the Everest region. This is where four of the world's six tallest peaks Mt. Everest(8,848.86m / 29,031), Mt. Lhotse(8,516m / 27,940 ft), Mt. Makalu(8,463m / 27,766 ft), and Cho Oyu(8,188m / 26,864 ft) rise above everything else. The Everest Base Camp trek is the grandest walk in the land of the Himalayas. Trekking through the Everest region offers astounding mountain views, and opportunities to get a glimpse into the life of world-famous climbers (the Sherpas). The trek further offers the opportunities to go sightseeing around Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site that is home to a variety of Himalayan flora and fauna, to get a closer look at the highest Buddhist monasteries in the world, and, of course, the most gratifying of them all, the trip to Everest Base Camp itself. It is an opportunity to embark on an epic journey that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set off in 1953. But nothing beats the thrill and sense of accomplishment that grips travelers on seeing the power and grace of the mighty Everest up close. The journey begins with the flight from Kathmandu to the hair-raising Lukla airstrip perched at a lofty 2,860m / 9,383 ft. The small airstrip frequently makes lists of the world’s most dangerous airports and there have been numerous crashes over the years. But you likely are safer making the journey by air than by Nepal’s system of mountain roads with sheep drops into steep canyons, no guardrails, and buses that could be described as “aging” at best. Altitude is an important consideration on the Everest Base Camp trek and nearby Namche Bazar (3,441 m / 11,290 ft), the Sherpa village and gateway to the Khumbu region, is often used as an early layover for rest and acclimatization. From Namche, the trek heads upward through colorful Sherpa villages along the Dudh Kosi River. Terraced rice fields and rhododendron forests eventually turn into hardened landscapes of rock and ice. On the approach to Everest Base Camp is the final outpost of Gorak Shep; there are no teahouses at Everest Base Camp so trekkers can either day hike from Gorak Shep or bring camping gear. The scramble to nearby Kala Patthar (5,545m / 18,192 ft) offers a panorama of Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse that bests the views from the base camp itself. The main Everest Base Camp trail is an up-and-back route, meaning that you hike down the same trail you hiked up. This whole trip will always stay at the bottom of your heart and you will always cheer this memory and want to make more! Best Time for Everest Base Camp Trek For the Everest Base Camp Trek, Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, and November) are the best months for altitude treks in Nepal. The air, freshly washed by the monsoon rain, is crystal clear, stunning mountain scenery, and the weather is still comfortably warm. Although many trekking trips into the lower altitude can be taken during winter and monsoon too, the cold can be bitter and dangerous at the high altitude, trekking trails above 4000 meters are usually blocked by heavy snowfall. And the trails can be slippery due to the monsoon rain, Nepal’s famous Juka (leeches) is an unpleasant feature of the wet season, but with care, trekking can still be possible and there are certainly fewer trekkers on the trail.
