The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the nerve-wracking yet rewarding trekking trails across the globe. The feeling of standing head-to-head with the World’s tallest peak Mount Everest itself is mind-boggling to acknowledge what your occupancy in this world is. The feeling of pride while on top of Kalapatthar is just as if you have ceased the world war all by yourself.
The Everest Base Camp trek starts with a short 40-minute early morning departure from Kathmandu to Lukla Airport. The excursion initiates with a short plunge to Phakding. The trekking trail runs through snow-capped backwoods, sherpa towns, and along the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers heading all the way up to Namche Bazaar.
Yet another point of interest of the Everest Base Camp Terk is a visit to the Tengboche Monastery. Tragically, the cloister was widely harmed by the seismic tremors in 2015. The alluring panorama from the sacred monastery incorporates perspectives of Mount Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku.
The trail to Everest Base Camp from Gorakshep and back is very challenging strolling over rough ground, shaped by centuries of snow and ice. The trail keeps running close to the Khumbu Glacier with perspectives on the Khumbu icefall. Besides the Base Camp itself, the sky-lining landscape of Everest itself from Kalapatthar is a sight, not many people live to see. Not in vain is Kalapatthar called the Everest View Point. Additionally observed from here are Mount Pumori and Ama Dablam.
