Everest Base Camp Trek is the world's most beautiful trek. The Everest base camp trek leads to the base camp of Mount Everest. The new height of Mount Everest is 8848.48 meters (or 29032 feet). The height of the Everest base camp is 5364 meters, or 17598 feet. The best itinerary for the Everest base camp trek is 15 days. The reasonable cost of an Everest base camp trek is US$ 1400.00 per person for trekkers who are looking for unlimited adventure, peace, and breathtaking Himalayan views. Due to the angle difference, you cannot perfectly view Mount Everest from Everest base camp. Hike uphill to Kalapatthar from Gorekshep for a spectacular view of Mount Everest.In short, Everest Base Camp trekking is known as the EBC trek. This trek carries a good deal of beautiful mountains, stupas, monasteries, and rivers. The Tyanboche is well-known for its beautiful monastery, which is surrounded by praying Lamas. While trekking through the wide trail, you can clearly see the snowcapped mountains leading to Everest, including Mt. Everest (8,848 m), the highest peak in the world. During the EBC trek, the trekkers are challenging their fears in every moment. After completing all the levels of fear, they have no fear left and explore the incredible view of Mt. Everest. Ama Dablam (6,812 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Nuptse (7,879 m), and many more have snowcapped mountains.
The Everest base camp trek route is wide and flat, with no risk of avalanches or landslides. Trekkers should be cautious of high altitude sickness due to the higher elevation.
During the Everest base camp trek, we provide you with an Everest base camp map, and it is very important to find out the name of the mountains and the trekking route. There are hundreds of mountains and peaks, all of which appear to be very similar and cause confusion. There are many side footpaths off the main trekking trail. It can be difficult to find the right path at times, and you may become lost. If you are going with your guides, you do not have a problem; otherwise, you can buy a map in Thamel, close to your hotel where you are staying in Nepal, that will help you.

The Naming of Mount Everest

In the Nepali language, Mount Everest is called "Sagarmatha." Sagar means the sky, and Matha means above. Nepali people believe that the peak of Mt. Everest is above the sky. "Chomolungma" is the name of Mt. Everest given by the local Sherpa people from the Everest region. Chomolungma means the mother goddess of the earth.

First climbers on Mount Everest

In 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey made successful climbs on top of Mt. Everest. Since then, it has become very popular worldwide and is the most wanted mountain for trekkers and climbers. Hillari and Tenzing used the route to Everest Base Camp.

There are two main trekking routes, Jiri (drive from Kathmandu) and Lukla (fly from Kathmandu), to Everest Base Camp. From Lukla, the main trekking point, the trekkers hike upwards to Namche Bazaar, known as the Sherpa capital. Those who prefer a long trek can take the Jiri route, which passes through the Sherpa village, the High Suspension Bridge, the Zobkyo Caravan (a family of Yak), Sagarmatha National Park, and Namche Bazzar.




The Everest area is inhabited mainly by Sherpa indigenous peoples who are renounced higher mountain climbers. Both Jiri and Lulka routes present you the culture, tradition, and life style of Sherpa indigenous peoples in Nepal.

 How hard is to go to Everest base camp trek?

Definitely, the Everest base camp trek is a hard trek due to the higher elevation, though there are hundreds of breathtaking views. You can make it easy if you follow some rules and regulations before starting your trek towards Everest base camp. Most of the time, tourists suffer from high-altitude sickness and fatigue. High-altitude sickness begins at 3000 meters (9700 feet) and continues until you reach the Mount Everest base camp at 5364 meters (17433 feet). If tourists walk slowly and steadily with many breaks on the way to the trek, they can acclimatize easily, and the trek will be easy. On the way to the trek, every 1 to 2 hours, there are tea houses where tourists can have enough liquids and rest to protect themselves from high altitude sickness and fatigue. because there are not many up-and-down hills. The trekking trail ascends gradually, with only a few steep sections. If possible, try to practice walking through steep terrain. Jogging and swimming are equally helpful. Any exercise that is convenient for you and helps you be fit is recommended.love birds enjoying with peace in quite place like himalaya.



How long does it take to reach the base camp of Mount Everest?

From Kathmandu, it takes a minimum of 5 days to arrive at Everest base camp if you are very fit; otherwise, it takes 7 days. The 5-day trip is one way to Everest base camp, and coming back takes 4 more days. For a comfortable walk, it takes 7 days to arrive at base camp and 5 more days to come down. If you walk slowly and are more comfortable, then you can make it longer too. We design the itinerary on the basis of your requirements; otherwise, you can follow our detailed itinerary.

We do not recommend eating any kind of meat that has been carried by local porters from low land for 2-3 days. In the trekking region, they are not allowed to kill any animals.
