Trekking to the foot of the highest peak of the world, Mount Everest indeed is a reverie for any trekkers all around the world.

Essentially, during Everest Base Camp Trek you will pass through the world’s most outstanding and serene upland scenery. You will explore around numerous villages experiencing way of life and culture of people especially ‘Sherpas’ residing in the heart of Himalayas. Any trekker will be entirely swayed as s/he pass through the paths lined with Mani walls carved with Tibetan Buddhist prayers, walk on the Khumbu glacier, visit ancient monasteries and climb Kala Patthar set at the elevation of 5,555m.

Just fantasizing to reach at the top of the world might give you terrific feeling. Standing opposite to the soaring peaks of the Everest region especially, the world's three highest mountains including Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu, will surge the rhythms of your heart beat. We will start our hike to Everest base camp as we land to Lukla Airport after a picturesque 30-minute flight from Kathmandu. From Lukla, we will make way to attention-grabbing village and move down to the Dudh Koshi River. Walking ahead subsequently, we will arrive at the Everest region and get a perfect chance to pass by Sagarmatha National Park.

Then, we will also traverse a colorful bridge decorated with prayer flags hung above the Dudh Koshi River before reaching Tengboche. Exploring around a popular transcendent hub of Khumbu - Tengboche monastery and the close up scenes of Mt Nuptse, Mt Amadablam and Mt Everest in the backdrop totally captivates you.

To continue our voyage to get to Everest Base Camp, we will also pass through the settlement- Dingboche passing numerous Chortens and Mani walls. After that, we will walk to Gorakshep passing from side to side with the horizontal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. Gorakshep too rewards us with breathtaking vista of the amazing landscape particularly sights of Kala Patthar and a rock face below Mt. Pumori are unquestionably memorable.

Then, walking alongside the Gorakshep Lake, we will trek to reach at the most awaited destination of the entire trek i.e. Everest Base Camp. We also climb Kala Patthar to see the sunrise views over the gigantic peaks including Mt. Everest is another fascinating part of the trek. After experiencing the feeling to be at the top of the world and capturing the amazing views of wonderful surroundings in our mind, we will return to Lukla following the same route.

High Altitude sickness:
While trekking, any visitor can endure mild to severe symptoms of high altitude sickness. This is also identified as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). The main early symptoms of the sickness are nausea, vomiting, insomnia, loss of appetite, persistent headache, light headedness, dizziness, confusion, weakness, fatigue, disorientation, drunken gait, lassitude, heavy legs, slightly swollen hands and face, difficulty in breathing and reduced urine discharge.

By and large, the symptoms become visible when you walk to the altitudes above 300 meters. As we climb the peak, air pressure turns out to be thin and as a result the available oxygen falls. Therefore, it is recommended to take sufficient time for acclimatization in order to get accustomed with the mountain atmosphere. You will need to consume plenty of water as well as other liquids essential to reduce AMS effects.

More importantly, you will have to rest properly at the guesthouse and our representative will always carry a well-equipped medical box for the case of emergencies. If the symptoms continue and turn out to be serious, you should return back to a lower altitude set. In the exceptional case of an emergency, you will be without delay airlifted to Kathmandu for advance treatment.

"An absolutely fantastic trekking outfit that has one purpose to guarantee a good time on a personal level to every Trekker in the group. Five of us just did the 16 day Everest Base Camp Trek adventure. Our guide Raj and porters / Sherpas Govinda, Bishnu and Narayan went out of their way every day to see that every detail was considered to give us a most unforgettable experience. Our guide Raj was extremely "heads up" when he was able to arrange a private helicopter to get us into Phakding when weather forced all fixed wing aircraft to remote airstrips costing their passengers to miss a day or 2 of getting on the trail. I will definitely make Nepal Hiking Team my go to company for all of my future trips into Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Best price, best know how and best people"

I would like to thank Ganga & Balaram as they had been amazing on replying all my email promptly and with much patience. I had asked tons and tons of questions but no matter what, they always got back to me with such patience and happiness. My trip was organized very well and I was very happy as everything was done efficiently. A very special thanks to the best guide in the world, Deepak. I don't think I can find a better one. I travelled solo and he was always taking care of me and all my queries during my trek. Nepal hiking team is amazing and everyone showed more care than interest in money which I found very amazing and different from other trekking companies. They always prioritized my safety, food and made sure I was always contented with everything. They definitely give an excellent service and their prices are also of the best. I had met a few people on the trek as well and Nepal hiking team had the best price and package to offer. Ganga and Balaram personally sent and fetch me from the airport and they always had lovely greetings and farewells. My trip went very well because I made the decision to go with Nepal Hiking team. It’s really important to find the right trekking company and i especially recommend them as they were more interested in my well being and to enjoy my stay in Nepal more than anything else. I would definitely come back to Nepal for more treks and will choose Nepal hiking team. I did ABC and EBC back to back with much ease because of my fantastic guide Deepak as well as the other arrangements done by Ganga and Balaram and I was very happy with everything. They even called me after my ABC trek to check if i am all good and up for the EBC trek as I did it back to back with no rest days in between. There was full transparency from the start to the end. No hidden agendas or anything. Nepal Hiking is a trustable, honourable company and they CARE, thus I would highly recommend to all Cheers!

Best Wishes,

Reena

 

My trip to Everest Base Camp

"Having just completed the Everest Base Camp trek on 10 September 2015, I can assure other potential visitors that the trail is very much open for business. Everywhere there is a flurry of activity and construction to get ready for the official trekking season. One of the main benefits to returning so soon is that it is quiet; there were few other tourists, and this provides a far greater chance to interact with local people. I'd encourage anyone considering this trip to come now; particularly with guide and porter you'd be providing much needed employment along the entire route."
