The trek to Everest is the eye-candy for most of the trekkers around the world. An opportunity to view some of the greatest mountains on Earth is offered by the Everest Base Camp trek. Mount Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Makalu are few of the great mountains you will see on this trek.

Jiri is a small town located 188 km east of Kathmandu. It is one of the oldest trekking trails in the world. Jiri was first trailed by the 9th British Expedition to the Everest on 1953. It is popular for being the first team who managed to reach the Everest summit, and includes some of the renowned climbers; namely; Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, Sir Edmund Hillary and George Lowe.

The trek begins at Jiri and advances through many villages until Phakding. Namche Bazaar is the highlight of the trek. A most populated Sherpa town is known for its open market, luxurious or budget lodges and ethnic lifestyle. Hiking around the place is most recommended. It ascends further to Tengboche, another highlight of the trek. Tengboche boasts the highest monastery on Earth. The monastery is over 100 years old and the popular Mani Rimdu festival is held every year to commemorate its legacy. Few other Sherpa villages you’ll come across are Dingboche and Lobuche. From here, the trail ascends towards Everest Base Camp through Gorakshep.

A day tour is enough to see around the base camp and return to Gorakshep to prepare for next hike to the Kala Patthar. Kala Patthar is the only location above 5,000 meters which offers a close glimpse of the Mount Everest. Sagarmatha National Park is the highlight of the trek which offers a rare glimpse of Himalayan flora and fauna.

Testimonials

Everest trek proved to be a challenge for me. I never had trekked to such great height before, however, the proper acclimatization and sound health helped me reach the base camp at no time.

Thanks to the team of Caravan Outdoors, specially to Hom Rana, for making the trip successful. The tea-houses were clean and standard, likewise the hotel in Kathmandu. Fabulous trip and well organized overall. ~Rob Ellington (NSW, Australia)
