Everest Base Camp trekking is one of the classical and popular trekking trail that started in 1953 from Nepal side. Generally, trekkers love two weeks trek starting and concluding at Lukla, the airport at the south of Sagarmatha National Park. However, alternativey you may start from Jiri spending extra ten days before Phakding. The trail continues via upper Phakding and it follows the Dudh Kosi valley that climbs up to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazzar which is the junction for every trekker to the Everest region. Villages and magnificent rhododendron, magnolia and giant fire forests are intermingled in the region. Enroute, you will pass through Thyangboche monastery, Pangboche and Pheriche villages, rich in Sherpa culture and traditions. The trail follows Khumbu Glacier upto Lobuche, a best point to view the scene of Ama Dablam, Tawache and other peaks then trail leads Gorak Shep. Mount Kala pattar(5554m) is the final destination of this trek which offers the breathtaking views of Himalayan giant, literally, freezing your senses with breathless admiration that beholds the eye; and makes up for the lung stuffed climb that took you up to there.
