An epitome of humanity, bravery, and stick-to-itiveness, Sherpa culture teaches you to live a full-fledged life.

Also known as Tenzing-Hillary Airport, Lukla Airport is the main route way to Everest Base Camp. Situated at the highest altitude, sometimes unpredictable weather changes may create flight interventions but it is widely accepted that flights to Lukla Airport are one of the adventurous trips of all.
Sherpa capital, where any globetrotters can feel the homely contexture, Namche Bazaar popular as “Gateway to Everest” is the first stop point during the trek to Everest. In fact, the EBC trekking is incomplete without the visit to this small b0ut traditionally and naturally rich village.

The famous colorful Sherpa festival, Mani Rimdu is hosted by Tengboche Monastery. Brimmed with the hymns of OM MANE PADME HUN, this monastery is a perfect place to decipher the peace.
With an altitude of 5600m, the Kalapatthar viewpoint is worth visiting where one can visualize the peachy keen views of the summit and other peaks like Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Cho Oyu. One has to exhibit their physical presence to feel the marvelous beauty of nature from here.
“Winter is coming” or “Winter is here” It’s the perfect time to overlook the entire majestic views of the scenario around Everest Base Camp with twinkling snows. But make sure you can adjust to the freezing cold. The best time to trek to Everest Base Camp is from March to May and September to November. But if you are planning to carry on a Helicopter tour then you can have a visit to base camp when there is fine weather.
You do not require professional or previous trekking experience to begin your EBC trekking as it is a moderate trekking journey. Any person who is committed to walking 5-6 hours a day can easily access the trek. But altitude sickness may intervene in your journey.
Safety comes first. Go through the planned itinerary and take suggestions from well-trained professionals. Traveling through the majestic mountains is more than you expect.

Important Note: With a challenging geographical structure and unpredictable climate, internal flight delays are quite frequent, especially so in the Himalayan regions of the country. The flights are even canceled if the weather conditions worsen. As such, we advise you to travel to Nepal during autumn and spring seasons. These seasons offer the most stable of climatic conditions and see far fewer flight delays and cancellations. We also recommend the travelers to include a few extra days in their travel itineraries as contingencies. You should also be careful to get travel insurance to cover the additional expenses due to these conditions.
