13 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

Duration: 13 Days   |   Based on 1 Review

13 days Everest base camp trek is one of the most popular and famous trekking holidays in the Everest region (Khumbu). The challenging and strenuous trek goes through the Everest national Park offers magnificent views of high mountains, unique Sherpa culture, colorful markets and monumental landscapes. While doing 13 days Everest base camp trek, trekkers can visit some of the most popular monasteries situated at the highest place in the world. During the trek, all the time views are stunning and the loyalty and friendliness Sherpa people are the highlights of the trip.

We start the trek with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla which is a 35-minute mountain flight over the astounding green hills and white snow-capped mountains. This is a tiny airstrip that offers a view of beautiful landscapes and stunning Himalayan giants from where your adventure trek really begins. Upon the arrival at the Lukla airport, our Sherpa crew will already be present to welcome you with a hearty and hospitable gesture. The guide that will accompany you all the way from Kathmandu will be well-trained, friendly, reliable and experienced to inform and help you in case of high altitude sickness.

The trek begins with the normal flat, downhill and uphill hike to the hustling and bustling city, Namche Bazzar. The trekkers will be given two nights to acclimatize to the elevation and atmosphere of the mountains. Namche is an amphitheatre style of town which is the heartland of Sherpa kingdom. We can find most of the modern facilities such as Internet cafes, ATM, bakeries, night bar and gear shops for buying or renting the gears which are used for 13 days Everest base camp trek.

After adapting to an elevation in Namche, we start our trek towards the beautiful Everest base camp. The journey begins with the first glimpse of the exotic view of Himalayan giants which includes Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dhablam, Mt. Thamserku and Mt. Pumari. After witnessing the stunning mountain ranges, we move forward to our next destinations, Tengboche. Tengboche gives trekkers an opportunity to explore the world-famous Tengboche monastery which holds an outstanding history. The following day, we trek to Pheriche, where we accommodate for two nights to have a good rest and gather strength for our upcoming journey. In Pheriche, we will hike up to 5000 m and spend the night at an elevation of 4200m. Experts say that hiking at higher elevation and sleeping at a lower elevation altitude helps moderate altitude sickness. Therefore, we follow the same method and complete the Everest base camp trekking with ease.

The trek continues to Luboche and Gorakshep. These places are over 5000 m which apparently is an elevation prone to trigger altitude sickness. The trekkers might feel a light headache, shortness of breath and loss of appetite, which are normal symptoms to face in high altitude area.

Furthermore, we discover more stunning views of the awe-inspiring mountains such as Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Nuptse on our journey back to Lukla from the Everest base camp and Kalapatthar!
