Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Trek:

Everest Base Camp Trek  is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. It is a memorable journey towards the foot of Mt. Everest (8848m), the highest mountain in the world. This is a classic trail that follows in the footsteps of Edmund Hillary & Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. The major highlight of the Everest Base Camp Trek is the hike to Everest Base Camp, located at an altitude of 5364m, to see the glorious south face of Mt. Everest. 
Everest Base Camp Trek begins with a short, scenic and adventurous fight to Lukla. It is only a matter of a day or two before you reach Namche, the capital of Sherpa community, where you will be able to enjoy Sherpa culture and hospitality. The visit to Tengboche Monastery, one of the biggest monasteries in the Himalayan region, will allow you to capture beautiful and spectacular view of Mt. Ama Dablam. The climax of this trek is the hike up to Kalapathar that provides breathtaking views of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pumori among others. 
The trekking trail is adorned with mani walls, chortens and monasteries. Much of the the trail further passes through the Sagarmatha National Park which is home to a rich and well protected biodiversity. The forest of firs, junipers, birch, rhododendron, blue pines harbours such wild and rare birds and animals as Monal, Blood Pheasant, Chough, Red Panda, Langur Monkeys, Martens and Wolves. 
Everest Base Camp trek can be done in different durations depending on your time, interest and budget. Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition have successfully led many trekking trips to Everest Base Camp (EBC). We have a team of highly experienced, well equipped, well insured and friendly local trekking guides and porters who will accompany you throughout your journey.

    Everest Base Camp Trek

    Trekking with Ramesh Paneru is an absolute delight. His knowledge of Khumbu's trail and peaks is both impressive and reassuring (other guides and porters regularly ask him the way). His nature is kind and generous (he sings and smiles and offers jokes and all jokes at just the right time). And he is as intent on sharing what he can of the Napali culture and politics with trekkers as he is with safety acclimatizing them on their way toward their destination.


    As for the trek itself, the views from Kala Patthar on a clear morning speak for themselves they are nothing short of brutally magnificient. As for Ramesh I recommend him with great enthusiasm and without reservation, and look forward to returning to Nepal to trek with him again.

    Steven Harmsen

    Everest Base Camp

    The toughest part of the trip is getting your body used to "squatting". The up and down hiking, for me, was an opportunity to push my body and mental toughness. Sadly due to Monsoon season, I was unable to see Mt. Everest. On the other hand, the goal of the trip was not to see Everest rather to make it to Base Camp. In this regard our trip was very successful.


    Our guide introduced us to many people that shared plethora & stories of Everest ascents, adventures and travels. K.B.(our guide) was strong, competent and very knowledgeable. He knew the exact heights of every mountain peaks pass and village along our trip. Furthermore he could estimate with tremendous accuracy, the distance and times to the next destination.


    An overall success and a great experience.

    My thoughts on the company (American, Single Female Traveler)

    * Very organized - they had a variety of treks available and I'm able to put together for me in a day.
    * Knowledgeable - When I asked about trekking and the difficulties of each trial they were able to answer my question to my satisfaction. Other companies were answer with vague replies or " no problem "
    * Friendly - I spoke with the owner, Nava who was very reassuring about the safety of trekking alone with his company's guide. He understood English well and listened to my concerns.
    My thoughts about my guide.
    * Dinesh - wonderful !
    * Easy to get alone with
    * Very Helpful
    * Keen about Trekking
    * Gentle natured
    * Sociable
    * Popular with the people who live along the trial
    * Accommodating
    * Able to problem - solve
    * Good boundaries - which is very important as a female traveling alone !
    * Likes to laugh
    I had a great time ! thank you
