Everybody wants a glimpse of the world’s highest mountain, and that’s the reason why the Everest Base Camp trek is so popular. The trek gets you right into the high-altitude heart of the high Himalayas, more so than any other teahouse treks.

Being the oldest established trek in Nepal, its surrounding villages have matured so well to receive the thousands of visitors making their way there every year. Over the years, many additional routes have been established over the years along this trek, giving options to add-on for additional experience. And of-course the number of days and difficulty level may vary based on the add-on routes. I usually go on a 15days trip every time I trek up to EBC, which includes the buffer days at Kathmandu and the acclimatization days along the route.

My first time on this trek was in 2005, when I first attempted to hike up the Imja Tse, a mountain in the region. Much has changed since then, and all I could say is that the trek has never failed to impress me.

Important: nTravel insurance: always good to have when on travels out of the country. It is the responsibility of the agency to remind participants on the travel insurance, but it is the responsibility of the participants to purchase the insurance. nThe camping style at G7 mountains can be different from the common camping experiences that you may have had in the past. As the camping site is only meant to be a temporary resting site before proceeding with the summit climb, we will have a mass tent facility known as the A-frame tent, with ground sheet. You can bring your sleeping bag (it can be cold past midnight) to lay on the ground sheet to make yourself comfortable. n
