Discount Offer 15 Nights 16 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

by Lovie McKerihan (2020-05-13)


The Everest Base Camp trek has been the most popular attraction in the Khumbu region, north east of Kathmandu since the peak was conquered in 1953. Its scenery is amongst the most dramatic in the Nepal Himalaya and takes you closer to the ice covered giants than any other trekking trails.

This 16 days Everest base Camp trek is not an easy hiking and requires a fair level of fitness and stamina as the trail begins at 2780m with your 35 minute Mountain flight to Lukla and after the first day, is mainly above 3000m. Mountain Mart Trek experienced adventure team has designed this trek to minimize the risk of AMS (mountain sickness) by including two rest days in Namche Bazar (4,360 m/14,300 ft) and Dingboche (4,360 m/14,300 ft)

OurEverest Base Camp trekking trail follows the friendly Sherpa villages and rises and falls as it crosses the countless hanging bridge. Two nights are spent in the large town of Namche Bazaar with a rest-day acclimatisation walk to the large Sherpa Village of Khumjung to explore their lifestyle, beliefs, skills and warmth. Prayer flags, chortens, mani walls and monasteries testify to the importance of Tibetan Buddhism in their lives.

The Everest Base Camp Trek Nepal continues to follow the ridges and as the altitude rises, so the temperature drops, forests and farmlands give way to alpine scrub rock and ice. The last village on the trail is Gorak Shep from where a long day leads to the ring of peaks that surround Eveerest Base Camp on the Khumbu Glacier with views of the difficult ice fall that leads towards the summit above.

Morning climb up Kala Patthar (5545m), behind Gorak Shep offers superb views of Everest, the South Col, Nuptse and the glacier below. In the afternoon, commence 4 days return trek and becomes easier as the altitude drops and temperatures rise.

For this trek you will need good boots, warm and waterproof clothing, a good sleeping bag, a day pack, camera, sunscreen and hat. Our Everest Base Camp trekking package includes meals, accommodation and safe drinking water
