Everest Base Camp Trekking is a famous trek. It has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expedition to the Everest in the 1953. Utmost Adventure designed a two week trek to get you close to the highest mountain on Earth.
The Everest region is located in the northeast of Nepal. The most visited part of this region is Solukhumbu district, home of the legendary Sherpas and the highest peak of the world, the Mt. Everest with its 8848 m height. To the north of Solukhumbu lies the Sagarmatha National Park, to the east the Makalu Barun National Park is located. The major ethnic groups living in the region are Sherpas, Rais, Tamangs, Brahmins and Chhettris. Diverse range of wildlife and vegetation can be seen here. You can meet mountain goats, musk deers and barking deers in the forests. Birds like pheasants (in Nepali “Danfe”, the national bird of Nepal), ravens, crows, coughs and snow pigeons. The best time for a visit is during spring and autumn.

We will be staying at 2/3 star hotel in Kathmandu, and in tea-houses during the trek. All rooms are on twin-shared basis. Single bedroom will be arranged on request and will cost additional. Utmost Adventure will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, tea-houses at some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and in trekking regions at lower elevation but it might be difficult to find them at higher altitude.
All meals will be provided during trekking (On demand, we can arrange only breakfast during the trek and trekkers can order lunch and dinner individually from the tea-house menu). In Kathmandu, breakfast will be available . There will also be welcome and farewell dinners taking place for guests. While on trek, we have breakfast and dinner in the tea-houses/lodges where we spend the night and lunch on our way to next destination. Authentic Nepalese, Tibetan, continental meals and Indian cuisine are common choices in the menu.
Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trek. Travelers who can easily walk uphill and downhill trail up to 6-7 hours a day will enjoy this trip to the fullest. It is a good idea to prepare for the Everest trek by jogging and exercising regularly at least for a month prior undertaking the trip. Trekking to the Everest Base Camp will be considerably easy for those who have experience in trekking in high altitudes. Determination, good physical health and positive attitude are good preconditions for a successful accomplishment of the trek. Past hiking experience would definitely be an asset but no particular technical skills are required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Utmost Adventure before booking the trek for their own safety reasons.
