Why is Everest Base Camp Trail Famous?

The 12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek Trail is not an ordinary walking route and it is a legend in itself. Nowhere in the world will you find the Himalayan sanctuary like in this region. Trekkers surely get the chance to knit together splendid mountain stories.

Throughout the trekking, trekkers keep on getting outstanding scenery and iconic moments. Be it the trailhead or be it the final destination. Everest Base Camp Trekking never fails to hook trekkers with its grandeur and beauty. Walking begins from Lukla. A joyous flight to Lukla is an adventure of a different blend. A short runway, narrow valley to navigate and incredible landscape make the entire flight a marvelous experience.

Three distinct forest types make it diverse too. The start of the journey is at the temperate forest belt, the middle phase is at alpine, and finally the tundra vegetation. Diverse vegetation is home to diverse wildlife too. Therefore, Everest Base Camp Hike is more than just a mountain thrill. The trail passes by numerous Sherpa hamlets, towns, rivers, and moraines.

In every hour of a journey the surrounding landscape and scenery change. It is rare for any trekking route other than those in Nepal. Khumbu region of Nepal is particularly outstanding for its diverse walking experience in terms of attractions. The Buddist Chorten, Monasteries, Manes, and prayer flags endow the spiritual boost to the journey. Moreover, an entire region of Everest seems like a mythical as well as a mystical place.

Stunning Kalapathar Vantage Point  (5545 M)

Do not miss to visit the Kalapathar viewpoint (5545m) and it’s one of the supreme spots throughout the trek. Where you can observe mount Everest too near and discover the popular mountains like Pumori, Nuptse, Amadablam, Khumbu Glacier, Khumbu Icefall, Khumbtse, Thamserku, Labuche Peak, Mera peak with an amusing view of the Himalayas.

Moreover, The Classical Everest Trekking trailhead is Jiri. However, the opening of Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla revolutionized the entire trekking scenery of the Everest region. The journey begins from Lukla and it’s the major gateway of the Everest trekking region. After two days of trekking, trekkers reach the magnificent Namche Bazaar. It is one of the highest altitude towns in the world. The second day of the journey provides the first sight of Mt. Everest. It is from a few meters before reaching the Namche Bazaar. The place is where trekkers do the first acclimatization activities and the second acclimatization at Dingboche village.

Trekkers follow the trail passing by Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep to reach the Everest Base Camp. Route up to Dingboche is relatively easier and has lots of greenery. However, the trail beyond Thukla Pass is through moraines and dried glaciers. The Everest Base Camp Trekking trail combined the most popular treks like Everest Three Pass Trek, Gokyo Lake Trek, Island Peak Climbing, Labuche Peak Climbing, and more unknown treks too.

Acclimatization and Altitude

Acclimatization during Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC) is a high priority. It is better to ascend gradually rather than speed the trek. The biggest secret of successful high-altitude trekking is drinking plenty of water and proper acclimatization. So, what is proper acclimatization? It is very simple. Hike to higher altitudes and rest at lower altitudes.

The first acclimatization is at Namche Bazaar surrounding. Trekkers trek to Everest View Hotel or Khumjung Village and return back to Namche for overnight sleep. During this acclimatization hiking, trekkers get outstanding visual treats in the form of mountains. Major delicacies are Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Lobuche, Cholatse, Amadablam, Thamserku, etc. The second acclimatization is at Dingboche Village. Trekkers either trek to the top of Nagarshan hill or trek to Chhukung Valley. Both of these places offer breathtaking scenery. On top of that, these hikes help trekkers to adjust themselves in thin air.

The lowest altitude on this journey is Kathmandu (1300 m) and the highest altitude is Kalapathar (5545 m). Everest Base Camp is at an altitude of 5364 m. Overall the journey is definitely high-altitude walking. Therefore, proper travel insurance is needed which covers helicopter rescue, medical charges, and emergency situations.

In 2010, my son, husband and I did the Langtang Valley Trek with Anjan as our amazing guide. His knowledge of the area was extensive, including walking expectations, weather and terrain conditions, and the best places to stop, rest, eat and sleep. So much so, that other Trekkers called on his advice despite having their own guides. He was a very acknowledges an expert mountain guide. On the trek, Anjan was nurturing, fun and extremely amicable with everyone. He had a very endearing personality, and over the two-week trek, he became a member of our family. I highly recommend Anjan to anybody considering undertaking any trek in Nepal.

I have done 3 treks with Anjan and Nepal High Trek & Expedition Langtang gosainkund Trek, Everest Base Camp Trek and Island peak climbing and Annapurna circuit Trekking 5 years before in Nepal. That’s was wonderful and lifetime trip in my life. Due to weather conditions, we had to change our plans and return to Besi chair and then do the Annapurna Base Camp with a few extra places along the way. My guide was Anjan and he was so helpful. When our itinerary had to change he was helpful, suggested other options and did what he could to make the best of a situation beyond all human control. Anjan is very proud of his country and willing to share all his knowledge and experience with his clients. Nepal High Trek & Expedition is trustworthy, takes all responsibility and all problems The staff at Nepal High Trek are very helpful and willing to help you with any information or anything else you may need. I would highly recommend this agency as they are professional, competent and helpful! I will definitely be back and trekking with them in the future.
