Every year hundreds of trekkers are evacuated from the Everest region due to their hectic itinerary, shading all their dreams of reaching one of the most deserved places to be because of fast altitude gain.
This is due to their busy schedule or being fast enough in ascending high altitudes. Trekkers should know how to acclimatize their body to the altitude, as you ascend higher the layer of oxygen decreases causing different problems in the body and finally they end up with their dream of reaching the base camp of Mt. Everest. Here, we have kept this in mind and our camp for overnight is well-balanced and shorter which gives the high possibility for your body to acclimatize to the altitude.
Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the popular global-ranking trekking destinations for trekkers, this is one of the most visited regions in the Himalayas. For experienced trekkers, Everest Trek is just a 9-Day itinerary starting from Kathmandu and ending up in Kathmandu. However, for first-time trekkers, we recommend having at least a couple of days extra to acclimatize and make it a 12-Day Trek.
Trekkers heading to Mount Everest Base Camp will be stunned by the beauty of nature and the age-old culture of the Sherpa People. The first-day trek starts with a stunning flight to Lukla, which is one of the most thrilling airports on earth.
Surrounded by the beautiful Himalayas, the Lukla Airport, also known as the Tenzing Hillary Airport is exciting to land.
Further from Lukla, the trail will take you close to nature with the diverse vegetation of the Himalayas, encountering wild animals, Himalayan birds, and different alpine vegetation.
Upon reaching Namche Bazaar (5-Day) which is the administrative headquarters of the Everest region or the Khumbu region. Trekkers can enjoy nature and modern facilities available there, including different bars, bakeries, ATMs, banks, hospitals,s, etc.Namche Bazaar is the only well-equipped town with more accessible facilities for local people and trekkers in need.
As you ascend from Namche Bazaar you will be passing by lush green vegetation and entering into the bare Himalayan region with a clear view of the enchanting Himalayas which includes Mt Thamserku(6623m), Mt. Ama Dablam(6812), Mt. Lhotse(7600m), Mt. Nuptse(7879m) and of course Mt. Everest(8848.86m) and many more.
From Gorekhshep the last and the highest overnight camp of the entire trek, you will hike to the Everest Base Camp to step your feet to one of the highest base camps on the earth.
The trail to Mt. Everest Base Camp is an easy-going uphill into the Himalayas as the local, government, and concerned authority of the Khumbu region keep their eyes open to maintain the trail so that trekkers and the expedition group heading towards the Himalayas are safe in their entire journey into the Everest region.
These 17 days of Everest Base Camp Trek will help all levels of trekkers to complete their once-in-a-lifetime dream of reaching the summit point at the base of Everest in a more relaxing way. However, if you still have time limitations, you can descend through Helicopter back to Kathmandu or Lukla from the Base Camp. This will take around 3 days, which means trekking into the base camp and fly back to Kathmandu.
The best way to accomplish the Everest Trek is only through maintaining the trekking distance where the oxygen is thinner and acclimatizing is necessary for the places where the risk factor is high for encountering any sort of breathing problem because, above the altitude of 4100 meters, oxygen gets thinner.
No matter how short the distance is compared to other trekkers, you will be utilizing your leisure time exploring the surrounding hill, as we believe ‘hike higher and sleep lower’ is the best way to trek into the Himalayas.
Furthermore, the panoramic view from Everest View Hotel, Nagarjun Hill, and Kalapatthar will be the best which many trekkers miss due to the hectic schedule of their trekking itinerary.
Discover Altitude has experienced numerous such incidents over the last 18 years, keeping all this in mind we feel immense pleasure to introduce Everest Base Camp for Senior Citizens or Everest Base Camp for beginners which is a 17-day itinerary into the Himalayas that maintains all the risk factors apart so that the dream of every trekker to be into the base of the top of the world fulfilled.
