Everest Base Camp Trek is not only the classic trek Nepal of Nepal but also the most sought-after-spot in the world. A top lister in the wish list of many trekkers, Everest Base Camp is one of the high altitude treks in the Himalayas of Nepal. Interestingly, the two-week-long trek starts and terminates at Lukla, which is an experience in itself. Indeed, it’s a journey towards the base of the roof of the world, Mt. Everest.
What’s like to be on the foothills of the top of the world, Everest?
Yeah, It’s surreal. The best feeling and vibe ever. Imagine, you are on the foothills of the top of the world, the highest point on Earth, far from everything you left back home. Every soul out there forgets everything and gets soaked in the cold air and the heavenly aura around. In another tone, it’s a million-dollar experience.
Hiking the Everest Base Camp
Normally, trekkers have to take a daunting yet a lifetime experience flight to Lukla Airport, one of the unique airports of the world nestled between mountains. It’s not an average trek rather it is an exhilarating trip that proceeds in the shade of Himalayas. On the flip side, trekkers will be playing hide and seek with nature and towering peaks. The concoction of Sherpa cultures with splendors created by mountain vistas, natural resources, and wildlife highlights the grandeur of the Everest region. Explore the heartland of Sherpa and feed your soul with mountain spirits. Everest Base Camp trek is an out-of-this-world experience, for real.
First, hiking from Lukla, a zephyr-like two-days trek up the Dudh Koshi valley leads to the historical Namche Bazaar, the trade-hub of Khumbu region and the birthplace of world-famous mountaineers like Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. Not only that, the route hosts an abundance of tea houses and lodges. Phakding and Monjo are the major stopovers on the first day. Second, just beyond Monjo, there lies the entry point to the Sagarmatha National Park, Jorsale.
In like manner, one can feel the serenity of Phakding hamlet on the bank of Dudhkoshi River. Specifically, the rhythm of Dudkoshi creates amazing vibes before embarking on the voyage to Sherpas’ hub Namche Bazaar (3,440 m). This is where the permits of the authorities overlook travelers’ permit. Third, the natural sequence that escorted the Dudh Koshi River starts going uphill right from the suspension bridge which comes after the few minutes of walk from Jorsale. And Namche Bazaar can be accessed after 3 hours of hike.
Therefore, it is wise and absolutely necessary to stop here for a few days to acclimatize during which one can stroll around the historical Namche Bazaar.
Namche to Everest Base Camp Trek
Leaving back Namche Bazaar, the path follows the valley of Imja Khola accompanied by arresting views of Thamserku, Kangtega and Ama Dablam peaks. At the same time, giants like Lhotse and Everest dominate the skyline. Uniquely, the snowy hills welcome their guests from all over the world. Then, one can relish upon the first view of Mt. Everest after reaching the vice summit of a green hill above Larpchen bridge.
The most general night pause after Namche is at the top of a sheer climb from the Imja Khola at Tengboche. Then, the trail proceeds along the green lush vegetation of alpine trees like Juniper, Pines, and Rhododendron which embellish the trail to sacred Tengboche Monastery. It is one of the most renowned monasteries, probably because of its unique location that offers an unparalleled backdrop with Mt. Ama Dablam. Likewise, Ama Dablam is the most beautiful peak as acclaimed by visitors. Accompanying the Imja Khola from Tengboche, the trail climbs up through Pangboche until Pheriche or Dingboche is reached, where the trek ends for that day. Another day of adaptation follows with a captivating side trip to Chhukung which is just about a 3 hours stride from Dingboche.
Lobuche to Gorakshep
To reach Lobuche, trekkers have to walk for around 6-7 hours from Dingboche or Pheriche. Lobuche beautifully sits on the lateral moraine of the Khumbu glacier. Undergoing roughly 3 hours of the hike from Lobuche one reaches the last settlement of the trail known as Gorakshep. The few tea houses at this place act as a temporary haven for the night before travelers undertake the final leg of the trek over the glacier to Everest Base Camp Trek.
Above Gorakshep resides the popular viewpoint known as Kala Patthar that offers exceptional vistas of the region.
Quick Fact: This is a popular vantage point preferred by many photographers for capturing photographs of the world’s highest mountain. Likewise, the final stretch of this trail along the glacier to Everest Base Camp can take up to five hours. Correspondingly, this is one of the challenging parts of the trail, as a result, we recommend trekkers to march through this area in a cautious fashion.
Generally, there’s always the risk of falling on the slippery ice. Above all, there is no occasion to be worried. Our trekking experts at Mantra Adventure are highly skilled as well as experienced to tackle this kind of treacherous stretches.
How hard is Everest Base Camp Trek?
Expressly, the best view always comes after the hardest climb, this quote applies for Everest Base Camp trek. However, the popularity of this trail is growing each year among passionate moderate to hardcore trekkers. Around 30,000 people make it to Everest Base Camp, trekking through the Khumbu Valley to Everest Base Camp.
Moreover, trekkers of all ages, shapes, and sizes have completed the trek over the years. On a specific note, a little bit of preparation and determination with fitness is all that you will need. On top of that, both mental and physical readiness is highly recommended. As a bottom line, Everest is not that easy as it seems on multimedia. With this in mind, we should march forward to chase our goal and conquering Everest.
