Trip Overview:

Pack your bag and prepare for the most-awaited journey to Everest Base Camp with the only cost of USD 1475. The EBC trek kicks off from Kathmandu/Ramechhap to Lukla with a most beautiful scenic flight above the peaks and mountains swimming in clouds. As soon as you enter the valley of mountains, you will be welcomed by the mighty peak the “Mt. Everest”. You may not see it from Lukla but while heading to Namche Bazar on your 4th day, you will see a glimpse of Mt. Everest “The World’s Highest Mountain” which existed on the globe.

In my view, Everest Base Camp Trek is not only about adventure or challenges, rather it is about blending yourself with nature and people taking steps forward from a box-size-life. The ethnic group “Sherpa”, the footsteps left by Tenzing Sherpa & Sir Edmund Hillary, the ups & downs, the sight of endangered animals, melting glacier lakes, Tibetan culture are enough reasons to take the Everest Base Camp Trek.

I accept that you can’t have an Mt. Everest view from Base Camp but a short hike to Kalapathar will sure change your mind. Giving a perfect 10/10 scenery of astounding mountains including Mt. Everest is the gift that Kalapathar gives to you. Watch our Pristine Nepal Trek founder story to reach Everest Base Camp.
