Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world having an altitude of 8,848 meters (29,028ft) and lies on the border of Nepal and Tibet (China) with about half of the mountain lying on each side of the border. Mount Everest was attempted for several times in the history to achieve a summit on its top. But the first successful expedition had been possible only on 29 May 1953 by a team of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. Since then the Everest Base Camp has become one of the most popular trekking routes in the Himalayas and is visited by thousands of trekkers every year.
Everest Base Camp trail is used by many expedition teams for many other peaks in the Everest region. This popular trekking starts at Lukla reached by a 35-minute flight along the Dudh Koshi valley leading into the popular Sherpa hometown Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazaar serves as a central hub of the area for food, sundries, communications and mountain climbing gears. Many trekkers spend a full day in Namche Bazaar for acclimatization and pay some excursion trips to the surrounding Sherpa villages. People trekking towards Everest Base Camp also ascend to Kalapatthar (5,545m/18,192ft) from where one can have the magnificent views of the Himalayan giants. The entire Everest region is protected within the boundaries of the Sagarmatha National Park. Sagarmatha is the Nepalese name of Mt. Everest and it is called Chomolungma in Tibetan. The Park is largely composed of rugged terrain and gorges of the high Himalayas ranging from 2,845 meters to the top of the world’s highest mountain – Mt. Everest including several other peaks above 6,000 meters such as Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Thamserku, Nuptse, Amadablam and Pumori. Everest Base Camp trek is one of our popular trekking holidays in Nepal.
