The Everest Base Camp Trek begins from Lukla after 35 min short Mountain flight from Kathmandu, Our trekking trail leads through Sherpa villages over countless ridges, closer to the ice-giants than any other trail.
Mountain Mart Trek adventure team has designed this trek to minimize the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), including two rest days. On the rest day, we will visit the Everest National Park headquarters with interesting displays of local flora and fauna and of the culture of the Khumbu Sherpas: plus the first views of mighty Everest. An afternoon walk to the large village of Khumjung offers a unique and authentic experience of Sherpa traditional life in this unforgiving territory and magnificent views of Thamserku, Kangtega, Ama Dablam (The Jewel), Island Peak plus Everest together with Nuptse and Lhotse.
Continue to the hilltop village of Tengboche and visit their Buddhist Monastery. Then Pangboche and Dingboche, another acclimatization stop: walk to Nangkartshang Hill for fitness and oxygen intake at the higher altitudes and unparallel views of the Ama Dablm, Lhotse – Nuptse glacier .
As the altitude rises, the temperature drops; forests give way to alpine scrub, rock and ice. The last village is Gorak Shep: walk to view the ring of peaks surrounding Everest Base Camp on the Khumbu Glacier – and the ice fall towards the summit.
