Everest Base Camp Trek (16 Days)

Everest Base Camp Trek
Everest Base Camp Trekking is a famous for Himalaya adventure trek in Everest region. It has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Everest in the 1953. Utmost Adventure designed a two week trek to get you real close-up to the base of highest mountain on earth.

The Everest Region is located in the northeast of Nepal. The most visited part of this region is Solukhumbu district, home of the legendary Sherpas and the highest peak of the world, the Mt. Everest at 8848 meters. To the north of Solokhumbu is Sagarmatha National Park; while to the east is the Makalu Barun National Park. The major ethnic groups that live in the Everest region are Sherpas, Rais, Tamangs, Brahmins and Chhettris. Diverse range of wildlife and vegetation are seen in the region. Animals to be sighted are mountain goat, musk deer and barking deer in the forests. Birds included Implying Pheasant (Danfe), ravens, crows, coughs and snow pigeons. The best time to visit is spring and autumn.

Namche Bazaar a bustling bazaar that a junction for trekkers and local peoples. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. Tengboche Monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. We also have the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar [5554m] from where we can get some awesome views of the Himalayan giants which literally numb your senses with breathless admiration that beholds the eye; and makes up for the lung-bursting climb that took you up there. You soon realize it was absolutely worth it. This also includes fantastic views of the south west face of the colossal Mt. Everest. We then trek down to Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu ice fall before finally making our way back down to Lukla. While trekking is possible in this area the whole year round, the best times to visit are from the beginning of March to end of May and from the beginning of September to mid December. You can find Everest Map below showing detail root.
