Who else can deny feeling one’s presence to view Mount Everest, Chomolungma (in Tibetian language) along with historic Tengboche monastery and world-heritage site, Sagarmatha National Park? Everest Base Camp is the viewpoint of Kalapatthar embellished with the scenic views of Mount Everest massif. Buckle up thrill-lovers to gain lifetime experiences!
Enriched with the aura of breath-taking natural sceneries, lofty Himalayas, and unique Sherpa culture, the EBC trek is the immaculate amalgam of the aesthetic Khumbu region and the adorable experiences of the mighty mountain ranges of 4 to 6.
Most of the trekking trail passes through the Sagarmatha National Park along with many settlements like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Dingboche, Tengboche, and many more. The Everest Base camp trek by Himalaya Land Treks begins with a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the outset of the world’s most amazing life experiences.

An epitome of humanity, bravery, and stick-to-itiveness, Sherpa culture teaches you to live a full-fledged life. The plus point of the Everest Base Camp trek is you get to indulge yourself in the distinctive festivities of this particular region such as Mani Rimdu (to mark the foundation of Buddhism in the Tibetan region), Dumji (as the birth of Guru Rinpoche), Loshar, and many many more where you can feel the spiritual recreation.
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 but traditionally and naturally rich village.
With the spiritual essence and ancient religious history, Tengboche Monastery is the largest monastery of the Khumbu region and the leading Buddhist centre. The famous colourful 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 marvellous beauty of nature from here.
The best time to do the Everest trek is during spring (March-May) and autumn (September to November). The remaining seasons, namely, winter (Dec-Feb) and monsoon (Jun- Aug) are less than ideal. While winter experiences heavy snowfall and fog, the monsoon season sees heavy rainfall. The flight to/from Lukla are also often delayed and cancelled during these seasons.
