Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek

This Trek takes about 12 Days and reaches maximum height of 5,545 meters at Kala Pattar( which mean English Black Rock ), a small peaks offering fine views of mt Everest . Although the final part of the trek is through essentially uninhabited areas, small lodge operate during the trekking season so it's quite satiable for the trekkers. The flight in or out of lukla at the start.
Everybody know of Mt Everest and that's the simple reason why the Everest base camp Trek is so popular . The Trek has a number of stunning attractions, but it also has some distinct drawback that might well deter potential trekkers were it not for the undeniable plus of being able to say you'be been to the base of the highest mountain in the world .
The attractions include spectacular scenery and the outgoing Sherpa people of the solu Khumbu, the region where Mt Everest and its attendant lesser peaks are located . The drawbacks include the long, hard slog to get there as well as the acclimatization problems that are caused by the region's considerable altitude.

The drawbacks include the long, hard slog to get there as well as the acclimatization problem that is caused by the region’s considerable altitude.
It’s not until you get right into the Solu Khumbu region that the Everest trek really gets interesting, the first part of the trek is not only a hard slog, but it also pretty sparse in the breathtaking view department. The hard slog comes about because the trek doesn't follow valleys-like the Annapurna treks-instead the Everest Trek cuts across the valleys. So for day after day its tiring process of dropping down one side of a steep valley and climbing up again on the other. By the time you reach the base camp your ascents with total almost 8845 meters, the full height of Everest from sea level.
The Everest Base Camp trek starts in Nepali –speaking Hindu lowland and ends in the Tibetan Buddhist Highland where the Sherpa are renowned of their enterprise, hard work, civic responsibility and devotion to the practice of Buddhism. In their often inhospitable land, the potato, a relatively recent introduction, is the main crop, but these days trekking and mountaineering is the backbone of the Sherpa economy .more than half the population in the region is now involved with tourism and Namche Bazzar looks more like an alpine resort than a Sherpa village.
