    Everest Base Camp Kala Pathar Trekfrom the last village of Gorak Shep will combine to give you th

    most dramatic introduction to Everest possible. Base Campoffers the Khumbu Glacier, the infamous iceto the Western Cwm and, in spring, the preparatory conditions of mountaineers. Kala Patthar, behind the

    village, offers close-up views of Everest, Nuptse, the South Col and a ring of lesser peaks with beautiful

    Pumori next to you.

    This Everest base camp trekking begins with a scenic 35 minute flight to the northwest of Kathmandu

    lifts you to Lukla (2780m) where you will meet your porters and set off, through farmland and forest alotrails that have been trodden for centuries. Take time to observe local architecture, customs and habits; p

    aside foreign ways and enjoy the pace of life devoid of wheels, rush and time constraints. Let the settin

    consume you as you mingle with the people and experience their lifestyle, beliefs, skills and warmth. Praflags, chortens, mani walls and gompas will testify to the importance of Buddhism in their lives.

    OurEverest Base Camp trek Nepal is carefully structured to minimize the risks of altitude sickness (Aby limiting the length of each days walk and the gain in altitude. A rest day at the vibrant town of Namc

    Bazaar allows for an acclimatization walk to explore Khumjung, the largest Sherpa Village in the region

    before dropping back low for the night. As the EBC trekking trail rises, the villages become smaller,

    vegetation and crops change to cope with shorter growing seasons, your pace becomes slower and the scmore dramatic. A second acclimatization day is required at Dingboche, after which you gradually climb

    affords the opportunity to re-observe, re-assess and enrich your experience.
