Everest like this in our Everest base camp trekking in Nepal.

Mt. Everest Named after Sir George Everest, the British Surveyor General of India at the time when the mountain was first identified as “Point XV” on the border with Nepal and Tibet. To the Sherpas and Tibetans however she is “Chomolungma” – Mother Goddess of the Earth. And the Nepalese have their own name, “Sagarmartha” – Top of the world!

At the foot of Mount Everest, on its southern side, lies the Everest Base camp used by the successful 1953 expedition of late Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Sherpa and countless Everest expeditions ever since. Although situated in the heart of the Himalayas, at a height of 5600 metres (18,370ft), a trek or hike to Everest Base camp is not the sole preserve of high altitude mountaineers. There are no rocky ridges to traverse, no scrambling or technical climbing, just a good well-graded path, accessible to all keen hikers and trekkers, which leads all the way to the foot of the world’s highest mountain. However one element that should not be underestimated is that your efforts to experience the Everest trail and its fabulous culture, history and scenery, will all take place at altitude. The key to trekking to Everest Base camp is therefore careful pacing and plenty of time to acclimatize. With more than a decade experience of organizing Himalayan treks you can be sure that all Earthbound Expeditions treks to Everest Base camp allow optimum acclimatization – with some days spent either just walking for a couple of hours or at rest. When choosing a trek to Everest Base camp another factor to look for is whether you will actually reach Base camp or instead, visit the nearby viewpoint peak of Kala Pathar only.

Kalapatthar, rather than Everest Base camp itself, offers the best close-up views of Mt. Everest. As we appreciate that reaching Base camp is the main goal for many trekkers and walkers, all of our Everest itineraries include both Everest Base camp and Kalapatthar.

Before to Go Nepal

To avoid risk of missing international flights, it is always recommended to have 2 or 3 days extra at the end of the trip to fly international, because Lukla airport is sensitive to fly and the chance of delay or cancel of the flight is always there. If incase you gain those days, then you can spent extra days to go to Chitwan national park, white water rafting or Pokhara valley tour or do Yoga, message etc at the end of the trip. If the flight is cancelled more then 3 days to Lukla we may change the itinerary for the betterment of the trip.
