Mt. Everest Base Camp Trekking



Everest Base Camp TourThere are very few places in this world where you can merely walk upto an altitude of 18,000 ft and one of them is the Everest base camp. Everest Base Camp is a barren wasteland, capable of sustaining little save the few single-cell creatures and lichens that live on the million-year- old granite. This popular Mt. Everest trekking path is called the Everest Highway. Situated in the Nepal region of Himalayas, it best to visit Everest Base Camp in the month of May - June & September - October, when the climate also supports the trekkers ascent to the summit.




Once you are just below Namche Bazaar, you can have a first glance of Mt. Everest. Sunrise from Namche top on Khongde peak is a memorable sight. A clear weather at Kalapatthar top is a dream place of the entire route. Mallory's lake at Gorakshep is also an interesting view point. Try to circumvent Mt. Amadablam to get its northern view by reaching Chukung via Dingboche at the cost of a day's delay.
