Mount Everest trek begins from Lukla, after 35 minutes scenic Mountain flight from ancient city Kathmandu. Our Everest base camp trek commences through the Sherpa villages and farmlands gradually rises to Namche Bazaar (3440m.) where couples of nights spend for acclimatization to be familiar with altitude. One of our rest day, we visit the large Sherpa village at Khumjung and experience their lifestyle, beliefs, skills and warmth. The Prayer flags, Chortens, Mani walls and Monasteries justify to the importance of Tibetan Buddhism in their lives throughout the wilderness.
Everest Base Camp trekking route continues with several ups and downs to higher altitude, exploring the alpine vegetation where the night-time temperature drops down to zero. Eventually, the one way trekking destination ends at the base camp of Everest or climbing the view point Kalapathar. Staying in the lodges and capturing the world's highest towering peaks, we retrace to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.
