Everest Base Camp is the starting point for most people who wants to climb to Mount Everest, which is why it’s also known as Everest expedition. On Everest Base Camp Trek the trail begins in Lukla, which is a small village in the Himalayas of Nepal. The altitude at Lukla ranges from 2,860 meters to 3,300 meters above sea level, so you’ll definitely feel its effects if you’re not acclimatized.
The trek takes between 11 to 14 days total, depending on your pace and how much time you spend along the way. If you’re planning on visiting other parts of Nepal during your trip (like Kathmandu), then consider adding an extra day or two onto your itinerary. Ideally, you should be able to complete this trip within 14 days if possible—this will give you enough time to rest in between each day’s walk while still allowing enough time at each destination before moving onto another one!
During any trek and climb skillful cooks at SummitClimb will prepare delicious food three times a day. SummitClimb runs Everest, K2, Lobuche, Island Peak, Ama Dablam, Manaslu, Cho Oyu, Aconcagua, Elbrus expeditions every year.
The Everest base camp trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal, and for good reason. The scenery is absolutely stunning, and you’ll get a chance to hike alongside rivers and glaciers. This trek is also great for people who are new to trekking but want to give it a try—you can take it at your own pace, and you’ll still get to enjoy some incredible views.
If you’re looking for a challenging trek that will push you physically, mentally, and emotionally, this might not be the trek for you. The path is relatively flat compared to other treks in Nepal, so if you’re looking for something more challenging, check out our Everest Base Camp Trek with High Passes!
