Highlights

  • One of the important and major highlights of the Everest base camp trek is the base of the world’s highest Mount Everest. Mt. Everest base camp lies at the altitude of 5,364 meters above the sea level. Basecamp is the camping site for the Everest expedition. It is also the destination point for every trekker who treks to Everest base camp. Since there is a trait of altitude sickness and no any teahouse on base camp trekkers stay at the small village near base camp called Gorakshep. From Everest base camp, we are rewarded with the breathtaking view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, as well majestic Khumbu glacier & icefalls, glacial rivers and snow avalanches beyond our eyes
  • Kalapatthar is one of the beautiful view-points of Everest base camp trekking. It is also known as the highest point of the Everest region trek which located at the altitude of 5,545 meters. Kalapatthar is famous for the spectacular panoramic views of the world’s highest mountains. Trekkers usually hike to Kalapatthar early morning or in the evening for the sunrise and sunset views over the Himalayas. From this vantage point, you can admire the 360-degree panorama views of world highest peaks above 8,000 meters such as Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, and other mighty of peaks.
  • Tengboche is the magnificent village of Everest region. It is a charming spot for close views of the world’s beautiful mountain Ama Dablam. Not the only view of Ama Dablam, it offers many other surrounding peaks whose views are simply breathtaking. Tengboche is also famous for the renowned oldest and biggest Buddhist Tengboche monastery nourishing spirit with the daily praying Buddhist monks. Also, Tengboche is famous for the Mani Rimdu Festival trekking; which is the important festival of local Sherpa people. Mani Rimdu Festival at Tengboche monastery is a 19 days series of events in annual full moon festival which usually held in Mid-October or early November as per the Tibetan Buddhist lunar calendar. However, the Tengboche monastery is the major highlight of the Everest base camp trek.
  • The Khumbu glacier and Ngozumpa glacier are the biggest and longest glaciers of Nepal respectively. The Khumbu glacier is about twelve kilometers long which lies between Mt. Everest and the Nuptse-Lhotse ridge. It is also known as the world’s highest glacier consisting large icefalls & starts from the Everest base camp. You can see the best Khumbu glacier from world’s highest base camp as well Kalapatthar. Whereas, Ngozumpa glaciers are about 36 kilometers long which lies below the world’s sixth highest Mt. Cho-Oyu up to the Gokyo valley. For the breathtaking views of Ngozumpa glaciers, you have to trek to the viewpoint of Gokyo RI. Hence, these glaciers are also termed as the major highlights of Everest base camp trekking.
  • Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo RI trek is the optional trekking route to Everest base camp trek rather than a classical route. Gokyo Lake is a popular & wonderful adventure trekking route in the heartland of the Everest region. Gokyo Lake trek is also known as Gokyo Valley trek or Everest Panorama trek which is the alternative of Everest base camp. Gokyo lakes comprise five different lakes which are also known as world’s highest freshwater lakes. It is situated at the altitude of 4,750 meters above the sea level. Gokyo RI (5,357 m) is another superb view-point where we are rewarded with the sweeping panoramic view of world’s four highest peaks i.e. Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho-Oyu with surrounding Everest panorama. Gokyo RI also offers the Everest’s five Gokyo lakes, and world’s longest glacier- Ngozumpa glacier.
