Everest Base Camp

For the glimpse of the Magnificient..!

Overview

          To know the Magnificience of a mountain you should maintain distance - is a saying related to mountains.It is a dream of every  adventure enthusiast and a mountain lover to have a Glimspe of worlds highest peak Eve- Rest - 8898 M .Everest base camp trek traditionally is a route normally following the Hillary footstep which starts with a few hours’ drive to Jiri, but time and development of infrastructures has benefited this trekking region and thus has provided opportunities for people with limited time to trek this EBC trekking trail with a flying to Lukla.

The trekking route in the sherpa region of Everest base camp trekking is a feast to eyes and a  endless view of mountain surroundings with curiosity over dramatic landscape. The trail, whether you take a shorter version with a flight into Lukla or the classical trek from Jiri, it all follows the same course of Dudh Kosi river as you gain altitude trekking through forests of rhododendron ( Buransh ) and magnolia into almost arctic conditions when you walk the Khumbu Glaciers into Everest base camp. This trek is even more challenging doing almost a circuit with a trek into Gokyo, crossing the Chola Pass or doing 3 passes or Gorakshep to Kalapathar and EBC or vice versa.

To be frank , to see the highest point on earth “Everest” from close quarters. The mystery of this trek is that one cannot get to see the Everest at close range as you get to see it from Kalapathar. However, the trek to base camp itself is sensational, an over whelming feeling that captures your heart mind and soul.A mountain journey with  each step ; each breath worthwhile and experience to cherish for a lifetime..!
