EBC Trek 12 Days

EBC Trek 12 Days starts after flying from Kathmandu to Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla (2828m/9278 feet) and follows the Dudh Koshi valley which climbs up to the Sherpa capital of Namche, a bustling bazaar that is a junction for trekkers, the local Sherpa and expedition route to the mighty Mt. Everest. All along this part of the trail, its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages great variety of cultures and traditions, colorful festivals, and monasteries. The flora and fauna are other ornaments of the Sagarmatha National Park.

From Namche, we trek along a high traversing path where we have our first good views of Everest and then head towards Tengboche Monastery (3867m/ 12687 feet) in a clearing surrounded by rhododendrons. The monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. The view from this spot, seen to best advantage in the morning, is a thrilling and stunning view of Everest (8848m/29029 feet) and other mountains.

We then descend to the Imja Khola and continue to ascend to the villages of Pangboche (3930m) and Pheriche (4200m) or Dingboche (4358m) finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. We then follow the glacier, first to Lobuche. The views are spectacular as we continue ascending to Gorak Shep (5100m) for a breather. After that, we hike to Everest Base Camp (5364m/17598 feet) which will give us a chance to have a closer spectacular Khumbu Icefall.

We also have the opportunity to ascend Kalapatthar (5550m/19209 feet) from where we can get awesome views of Everest (8848m/29029 feet), Lhotse (8516m/27940 feet), Ama Dablam (6814m/22356 feet), Nuptse (7864m/25801 feet), Pumori (7165m/23507 feet) and others Himalayan giants which 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 worth it. We then trek down by making our way back down to Lukla.

Great time on my walk to Everest Base Camp Trek

I had a great time on my walk to Everest Base Camp Trek from Himalaya Trip Team.

I have many positive comments and the main ones are:

– You were very efficient and helpful before I arrived, answering all my questions promptly and effectively so I knew what to expect when I arrived.

– I was met at the airport as planned, had a good briefing from you at the hotel and the hotel was comfortable.

– Everything happened as planned and it was a good timetable enabling me to to walk at my own pace and to properly acclimatise to altitude on the way up.

– My guide, Om Gurung, was excellent and very attentive. He obtained single accommodation for me every night and always checked that I had everything I needed before he looked after himself. When I was unwell on the way down he carefully monitored me, gave me throat tablets and did everything he could to ensure I was comfortable.

– My porter, Bikas, also did a very good job and was always helpful and pleasant.

– The standard of the lodges was good. The only comment is that often the washing facilities were sometimes very limited and at some lodges only consisted of a tap low down beside the toilet! This is not a comment about your company as I think it applies whichever company one uses. It is just difficult to understand why the washing facilities are often so limited and in short supply when all other features of the lodges are very comfortable!

– The price of the trek was competitive compared to some companies but the standard of care was equally good.
