The Everest region/Everest Base Camp circuit includes a variety of activities, including mountaineering and route hiking. It has a lot to offer visitors in addition to new experiences and enlightenment. Everest often extends a very warm welcome to guests and provides a number of tranquil areas to discover and appreciate its natural beauty. Many visitors claim that climbing Mount Everest had a profound impact on their lives. The Everest Base Camp cannot be deemed finished without climbing Kalapathar (5545m). The hikers can explore a great deal more spots after that. Huge glaciers, icefalls, the tallest mountains, deep valleys, barren settlements, and courageous people who face nature's most difficult challenges in the thin air at high altitudes call this place home.
The best and simplest way to go to Everest Base Camp is to take a flight from Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu to Lukla. A mid-hill trek is another option for getting to Everest, although most visitors do not like it because it takes a lot of time. Visitors will tour Sagarmatha National Park on their way to base camp, which is the most priceless Everest reason gem. The most crucial components of the Everest Base Camp walk include Lukla, Namche Bazar, Gokyo Lake, Nuptse, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Khumbu glacier. The aerial picture of the area that you see as you return to Kathmandu also sticks in your recollection.
Both Kalapatthar and Everest Base Camp are remarkably similar. At a height of 5600 meters, the Everest Base Camp is located nearby but on a different piece of land. The famed Khumbu glacier is where the modern Everest Base Camp is located. The Nepali government is preparing to move the base camp very soon since the Khumbu glacier is quickly receding as a result of global warming and other human activities. Additionally, during the trekking season, it is possible to fly from Everest Base Camp back to Lukla (Tenzing Hilary) airport. Private helicopters may be used to provide the helicopter return service. On your journey home, though, you can also spread the word to others. The sightseeing and encounters you have while on the trip and in the helicopter are very different.
You can take a direct flight to TIA in Kathmandu from Lukla after your trip from Everest Base Camp. It is occasionally also possible to take a direct flight from Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu. Visitors can get services from domestic carriers like Tara Airlines, Sita Airlines, and Summit Airlines. The cost of returning from Kathmandu to the Everest Base Camp per person can reach more than $1500 USD.
Welcome from Mountain Guide Trek staff upon your arrival in Nepal. After check-in, if time allows, you will visit the MGT office to meet your trekking leader as well as other participants for final preparation of the trip. (Overnight at deluxe hotel on BB basis)
We traveled to the airport early in the morning for the trip to Lukla. It is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to fly into Lukla. Further, you will trek to Phakding for views of Kusum Kangaru and a green landscape. (Stay the night at a tea house with a full board)
Ascending through woods of Himalayan pine and Deodar cedar, we will follow the Dudh Kosi to the renowned village of Namche Bazaar. Namche is a historic commercial settlement of Tibetan and Nepalese merchants. Namche Bazar is often called a gateway to Everest and a great spot to shop for traditional goods. (Overnight stay with full board at the tea house).
We do require acclimation at the altitude of 3440m at Namche Bazar so that we could adopt a high altitude before heading up to the high elevation of Everest Base Camp Trek. You will have a full day of leisure for a wonderful panoramic view or take a short hike to Syangboche village or stroll around the market as per your wish. Moreover, you can visit the Sherpa Museum to learn about Sherpa culture and the history of mountaineering. (Overnight at tea house on full board basis)
The level and straightforward trail lead to a vista of Mount Everest before descending into the Dudh Kosi Valley at Pungki Thanka. From there, it climbs the right slope of the Dudh Kosi valley to Tengboche Monastery (3860m). On a clear day, you can have a clear view of Mt. Everest and its neighboring peaks of the Khumbu region's spiritual center. (Stay the night at a tea house with a full board)
The trek on day five is the most interesting because you won't lose altitude like on other days and you'll get to see views of Mount Amadablam, Mount Lhotse, and other peaks as you start traveling from Tengboche. The route continues through pastures to Dingboche, known as the "Summer Valley,". (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)
Like in Namche Bazar on this day too, you require acclimation in order to adopt a high altitude. This is a significant spot for trekkers as they prepare to approach Everest Base Camp. A day stoppage at Dingboche provides you with a lot of refreshments. Moreover, a full day of leisure provides you with a wonderful panoramic view of the nearby Mountains. (Overnight at tea house on full board basis)
To reach Dughla, hikers must pass the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche (4240 m), which is staffed by western volunteers and supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association and provides medical care and advice to hikers. After leaving the mountain valley, you will make your way down to Lobuche's yak pastures (4910m). (Overnight stay with a full board at the tea house).
We get ready for our trip to the intended location after breakfast at Gorekshep, and we keep walking until we reach the Khumbu Icefall and Everest Base Camp. Due to the high altitude and thin air, the walk is extremely tough; it crosses stony dunes, moraines, and streams before arriving at base camp. During the busiest time of the year for expeditions, Everest Base Camp is busier with increased noise. Spend some time here and then travel back to Gorekshep. (Stay the night at a tea house with full board)
The day begins with a climb up to Kalapattar, which is 5545 meters above sea level and offers the greatest views of Mount Everest and the breathtaking Himalayan range. After the Kalapatthar trek, you will enjoy a helicopter trek back to Lukla. From Lukla, you will have a flight back to Kathmandu on the same day or the next day.
Useful Information: Please take note that the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla to Kathmandu frequently has weather-related delays of a few hours or even cancellations lasting one, two, or more days. Nevertheless, we advise you to be ready for cancellations and delays. If it is possible and requested by our clients, we can also arrange a helicopter rescue in such circumstances.
The term "Roof of the World", which is a metaphor for the highlands in central Asia, stands symbolically for Mount Everest (8848.86m), the highest peak in the world. Its most common name, “Sagarmatha” in Nepali, means “the mother goddess of the earth”. Climbing Everest Base Camp is famous for the distinctive scenery of the Solukhumbu region, including Mount Lhotse and Mount. Makalu, Mt. Cho-Oyu and other nearby popular mountains such as Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Nuptse, which is the home of the Sherpas, the world's fearless mountain climbers. The Mountain Everest Base Camp Trek will lead the trekkers to the route by which Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.
The Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas contains At least 25 peaks above 6,000 meters, and seven of them—Baruntse, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumo Ri, Guachung Kang, Cho-Oyu, and Nangpai Gosum—are over 7,000 meters high. Mount Everest is the mountain on Earth with the highest elevation above sea level. Due to fluctuations in the snow level, gravity departure, and light refraction, among other things, there is debate regarding the exact elevation of Mount Everest. But in 2020, Nepal and China jointly reported Mount Everest was 29,031.69 feet (8,848.86 meters) above sea level. This measurement was subsequently widely regarded.
Climate Change has reached the top of Mount Everest, thinning its highest glacier. The highest glacier on the tallest mountain on Earth is rapidly retreating as temperatures rise. The research based on measurements of warming and ice loss found that most of this loss has occurred since the 1990s, and it is human-caused climate change.
Most of the glacier is covered by rocky debris, but there are also areas of exposed ice, called ice cliffs, and it is the melting of the ice cliffs that most destabilizes the glacier. Scientists conducting research over the last thirty years have found that the glacier's thick snowpack has been eroded, exposing the underlying black ice to the sun and accelerating the melting process. Millions of people depend on the Himalayan mountain range for drinking water, and if other glaciers in the region - and worldwide - follow Everest's example, their capacity to provide water for drinking and irrigation could fall significantly.
The Mount Everest region/ Sagarmatha National Park are distinct biological and geographical areas in the world. The diversified ecosystem in the area is basically in its original state, with abundant species.
The Everest region has rich hydropower, light and wind energy resources. With its unique biological and geographical features, natural landscape, ethnic culture, and historical sites, the reserve (National Park) is also a top-rated destination for tourists all over the world. The scientific value of the park is incalculable. It is also the study base for the research of plateau ecological geography, plate movement, uplift of the plateau, environmental science and some other sciences.
