Summary of Everest Base Camp Trek
The gateway of Everest Base Camp Trek is Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. From Kathmandu, the trek begins after 40 minutes sensational mountain flight to Tenzing-Hilary airstrip at Lukla. From Lukla, the trekking starts following the upward path to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar passing through the Dudh Koshi River valley with views of Thamserku and Kusum Kangaru peaks. It takes about two days to reach this Sherpa village, which is a central hub of the Khumbu area. Usually, at this place trekkers allow a day of rest for acclimatization to minimize effects of Altitude Health problems (AMS). They then trek another two days to Dingboche (Alt. 4,260 m/13,980ft) before resting for another day for further acclimatization.
Another two days takes to Everest Base Camp via Gorakshep, the flat field below Kala Patthar and Mt. Pumori. After the visit of the south base camp of Mount Everest the hiking to the top of Kalapathar (Alt. 5555m/18225ft), the black rock nearby Gorakshep, provides a 360-degree awesome panorama of world’s tallest mountains of Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, Mount Pumori, Mount Lobuche, Mount Nuptse, and other surrounding peaks. From this elevation the true height of Everest becomes clear. The entire south face of Everest is visible.
Afterward, the trekking will retrace down Lukla following the places of Pheriche, Pangboche, Tengboche, Namche, and Phakding. In Lukla, it ends the trekking.
