Overview


Overland trek to Everest base camp

The Overland Trek to Everest Base Camp is a daily departure trekking package to Everest base camp. It is a very cheap and unbeatable new trekking package to explore Everest base camp with a Jeep drive to Thamdanda. Thamdanda is very close to Lukla. Before, there was no road access near Lukla. Either we have to fly from Kathmandu to Lukla or start our trek from Jiri or Phaplu. To start the trek from JIri, tourists need longer holidays because it takes a minimum of 28 days. Otherwise, they have to fly from Kathmandu to Lukla. In peak season, every day there are more than 400 tourists who want to fly to Lukla, and it is difficult to get a flight ticket. In the winter and monsoon seasons, most of the time the weather is very bad and tourists cannot fly in on time. They have to wait many days to get good weather. The flight tickets are more expensive too. Now we do not have to worry about the weather. We can drive near Lukla, which is called Kamdanda, and start our trek. In higher elevations, there is a very rare monsoon, and we can trek easily throughout the year.
