Everest base camp trek traditionally is a route normally following the Hillary footstep which starts with a few hours’ drive to Jiri, but time and development of infrastructures has benefited this trekking region and thus has provided opportunities for people with limited time to trek this EBC trekking trail with a flight into Lukla.
The trekking route of Everest base camp trekking is an endless view of mountain surroundings over dramatic landscape. The trail, whether you take a shorter version with a flight into Lukla or the classical trek from Jiri, it all follows the same course of Dudh Kosi River as you gain altitude trekking through forests of rhododendron and magnolia into almost arctic conditions when you walk the Khumbu Glaciers into Everest base camp. This trek is even more challenging doing almost a circuit with a trek into Gokyo, crossing the Chola Pass into Gorek Shep to Kala Patthar and EBC or vice versa.
Makalu Adventure as one of the leading tour operator in Nepal and trek organizer to Everest Base Camp still haven’t found out the main interest of People who want to do the EBC Trek. Probably yes, to see the highest point on earth “Everest” at close range. The mystery of this trek is that one cannot get to see the Everest at close range as you get to see it from Kalapatthar. However, the trek to base camp itself is sensational, an over whelming feeling that captures your heart mind and soul.
