Everest is the highest mountain in the world in which official height is 8,848m from the sea-level. There might be few travelers who are quite unknown about the Everest and the trekking routes in the Everest Region. To know about your trekking routes, please read our details itinerary where we have also mentioned the day-wise photographs of the trekking routes.

You might have some queries about how it goes in real it’s full of adventure. In real experiences, you should do a trek once in your lifetime. After all, this will be in real-time. As being local trekking leaders, for us, in each trekking, we found it in a different way that emerges with the full utmost freedom and exploration. In the trekking time, we every time learn lots of things from nature and our global trekkers. We share our experiences in the Himalayas and also learned lots of things by doing and learning. It might be an inspiration or doing kindness.

This is the fact you have to make in your mind say “YES,” after all, you are heading to Everest Base Camp. You might feel hard doing trekking but the thing is never and ever forget the joy that we are going to find it from the top of the world’s base camp. The towering mountains, Sherpa (local people) lifestyles, and cultures spending some time in nature and beyond it. 

Unleash your dream through TMG Adventure; as we are called storyteller from the Himalayas. Trekking to Everest Base Camp Trek will always be the greatest trek of all time.

When you have decided to do the trek in the Everest Region, you should make the least effort to know what it is called in the Sherpa language. It’s called the Khumbu. The Sherpas, who are the locals of the Khumbu Region, are famous in Nepal for their kindness, physical strength, and hospitality. You will always find the Everest Region beautiful because it is loaded with beautiful snow-capped mountains which will attract your eyes and make you say “Wow”.

The region is also the best place to study the Sherpa Culture and the mountain people’s lifestyles. The other treks that you can do in this region are the Sherpa Culture Trek, Everest Panorama Trek, Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek, Everest Three Pass Trek, Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lake, Gokyo Lake Trek, Gokyo Renjo La Trek, Everest Luxury Lodge Trek, and Everest Rolwaling Trek which are listed in our website. If you are looking to do a private trek or customize a trip that can be combined or which are not listed on our website. You can send us the inquiry. Our travel planner team is happy to assist your customize trip.

What natural beauties you see during these treks, you will not be able to describe them in words. You will feel this as you stand in front of the mountains, from a stone throw distance. Because of such views, the journey to Everest sticks in the memory of your brain. Every step that you take in this unknown land would be known by your mind as well as by your eyes as you follow your trekking guide as you see the mountains located both near and far from you.

The trekking trail not only takes you to villages, but also to the deep region where you find the mixture of natural beauties besides being in the alpine forest, dotted with rhododendron flowers. The trail becomes uphill and downhill as well as winds and takes you to the famous villages of the Everest Region like Lukla, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, and, including the religious spots like Stupas, Chortens, Gompas. Most of the time, you will pass by colorful prayer flags.

To start the world’s famous Everest Base Camp Trek, all you have to do is fly to Lukla which you can reach within 30 to 35 minutes. That is the starting point of the trek, and there you will feel the difference within a short flight. The main difference that you will notice is the world’s highest airport, Tenzing-Hillary Airport as commonly we called it Lukla Airport. The hills surrounding the airport welcome you, feel this as you follow the trekking trail that passes through Sherpa Villages.

Highlights of the Everest Base Camp Trek

You can get a notice or count some of the main highlights of the Everest Base Camp Trek and the numerous mountains you can see on the trekking trail. Some of them are Mt. Thamserku 6623m, Mt. Kongde RI 6,187m, Mt. Ama Dablam 6,812m, Mt. Lhotse 8,516m, Mt. Nuptse 7,861m, Mt. Kusum Kanguru 6,367m, and the world highest mountain The Mount Everest 8848m.

Most of the time, you will follow the Dudh Kosi River, and if you translate its name into English, it becomes the Milk River. You will also be trekking by the Imja River.

When you reach the historical Tibetan Buddhist monastery which is Tengboche Monastery (or Thyangboche Monastery) also known as Dawa Choling Gompa at 3,867m elevation. Tengboche Monastery is the largest monastery in the Khumbu region, It was built in 1916 by Lama Gulu with strong links to its mother monastery known as the Rongbuk Monastery in Tibet. In 1934 it was destroyed by the earthquake and subsequently rebuilt.

Again in 1989, the monastery was destroyed by the fire, Later on, volunteers and international aid supports to rebuilt. TMG Adventure does have Everest Panorama Trek which leads you up to Tengboche Monastery and descend back. To make Panorama view realities from where you have a view of Himalayan mountains which are Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku.

From there, you will also have the best sunrise view over Mt. Everest. And you are also in the protected area called the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Is the Everest Base Camp Trek Difficult?

This question might be raised when you are planning to do Everest Base Camp Trek. The most important thing you need to do is find the best trekking agency and the guide where our trekking guides are leading thousands of trekkers in the Everest region and other trekking destinations. As they are certified and well trained about the high altitude sickness. If you are in a hurry and don’t take acclimatization during your trekking, you need to face high altitude sickness, so in our trekking itinerary, we usually do acclimatization in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche. Eating hygiene foods which will be provided by us and drinking plenty of fluids like water and soup will also help you to be fit and fine. Another thing you need to be aware of mountain yaks, in the trekking routes you will encounter with yaks carrying heavy loads. Getting notice about Yaks, please give them space so that yaks can easily pass. Your trekking guide will pass you such kind of information at the time of your trekking. We would like to make a request, if you like to walk a bit fast or like to view some mountains a bit closer, please inform your guide. The guide will lead you to your destination considering the weather and possibilities. It’s good to be well prepared to do pre-exercise like morning walk, jogging and maintain fitness. 

Accommodation
