The Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek 14N 15D is one of the greatest opportunities to conquer the highest base camp (5364m) in the world and even higher- the breathtaking vantage point at Kalapatthar (5,545m), which overlooks the area with terrific views of the highest mountains in the world including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, etc. Trekkers also get to interact with the indigenous people while hiking along the trails. This is one of those highly ‘commented about’ trekking routes to the Everest region. It was in 1953 when two legendary figures Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Sherpa had taken the same route while trekking to the Mt. Everest or "Sagarmatha" in Nepalese language.

After a half an hour scenic flight to Lukla, we follow an impressive route through the heart of fine Sherpa villages, with each village having something new to offer. It offers an ample chance to explore the beautiful forests, cultivated countrysides and several monasteries situated at high elevations on the way. We climb on to Namche, the main trading village of the Khumbu area continuing via Thyangboche/Tengboche monastery to Pheriche and Lobuche. A trekking hub between EBC and Kalapatthar and Lobuche is Gorak Shep at 5710m, from where we follow the trail towards EBC (5364m) at first and get back for a night halt and continue towards Kalapatthar (5545m) the next day. This is the highest point we will reach in the entire trek and is the point of our return. Our return trail will be via Gorak Shep to Lobuche and Pheriche, descending all the way down to Lukla via Namchebazar. And head back to Kathmandu via a flight from Lukla.
