Mount Everest Base Camp Trek -12Days

Everyone has heard of the world’s highest mountain and that’s the reason why the Mount Everest Base Camp trek -12 Days is so popular. This 12-Day Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek has a number of stunning attractions, not least of these is being able to say you’ve visited the highest mountain in the world. The trek gets you right into the high altitude near of the high Himalaya, more than any other tea house trek. The friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, and monasteries of the Khumbu region make trekking through the area a joyful.

The return trek to Mount Everest Base Camp (EBC) from the airport at Lukla is at least 12 days in the total distance of 62 Kilometers or 38.58 miles. But it is wise to give ourselves  extra time of a day or two in case of flight cancellation due to bad weather. Mount Everest Base Camp Trekking reaches a high point of 5,545m at Kala Patthar, a small peak offering great views of Mount Everest and the Khumbu Ice fall. The trek starts right after we land at Lukla airport after half an hour flight from Kathmandu. The best times to trek EBC are March, April, May & September, October, November and December.

The walking on this trek is not all that strenuous, mainly because new arrivals can only walk few hours (4-5 hours) each day with several stops en route. The trekkers also have a complete day rest at Namche Bazaar to acclimatize. If trekkers fail to devote enough time for acclimatization, they usually fail to reach their goal. Therefore, it is highly recommended have proper rest according to the itinerary.

Mount Everest Base Camp Trek -12Days route itinerary is as follow: Kathmandu-Lukla (By flight)- Trek to Phakding (2610m)-Namche Bazaar (3420m)-Tengboche(3840m)-Pheriche/Dingboche(42340m)-Pheriche/Dingboche-Lobuche(4930m)-Gorakhseph(5160m)-Kalapatthar (5545m)-EBC(5360m) and back to the same route.
