Everest Basecamp Hike:
Mt. Everest Base Camp is one of the most popular destination for trekkers in Nepal. Its popularity has grown since the first expedition to the Nepalese side of Everest in the 1950s. It runs directly to and from Lukla. The trek follows the DudhKosi valley route with an ascent up to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar. From Namche, we traverse along a high path from where we have our first good view of Everest. We head towards Thyangboche Monastery located on top of a mountain ridge.  We descend to the ImjaKhola and continue to the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche. We approach the Khumbu Glacier. The trek through the glacier takes us first to Lobuche and then to GorakShep. From GorakShep we climb up to Kala Pattar for even more spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, including Everest's south west face. We then visit Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu ice fall before making our way back down to Lukla. This trek to Everest Base Camp, conquer high passes and glaciers, experience Sherpa villages and panoramic views, meet locals during the tea house stays

The trail leads to Duglha via PhalungKarpo which sits the historical base camp of first ever successful ascent to the Everest in 1953. Some prefer moving straight to Lobuche to stopping at Duglha; however staying here for acclimatization is highly recommended. The trail from Duglha to Lobuche is memorable for the stone memorials erected in the memory of 10 alpinists, including Scott Fischer, who died in the fateful Everest disaster of 1996. Also, the wonderful views of Pumori, Mahalangur, and Khumbutse peaks add to the grandiosity of the trek. (Overnight stay at Lobuchewith full board)

Just a small ascent from here leads you to 360 degree vista of snowy mountains. A steep climb up to the top through the torrent of Changri Glacier gives you a glimpse of Kala Pattar. Walking through rocky and glacial trails finally leads to the Everest Base Camp (5,360m/17,575ft). After reaching the Base Camp you will return to Gorekshep (5,160m/16,929ft) for overnight stay. Your guide will give the information for next day program of the kalapattar after the dinner if you are ok to climb it. (Overnight stay at Gorakshepwith full board)

as per your physical condition if you can then you will start your day early by climbing up the trail that meanders across a dry, rocky mountain. The terrain doesn’t pose challenge on this day, but the heavily blowing wind does. Within 2 hours of climbing on the way up you will reach Kala Patthar (literally translated as black rock). The view of Everest observed from here is more eye-catching than that seen from the base camp. From this day you will start to walk down after completing your destination poin. You will return to Gorakshep for breakfast before continuing downwards to Pheriche/Pangboche. In this day you will stop at Pheriche or Pangboche as per your walking stamina on the way down.
