The Everest Base Camp trek
has been the most popular attraction in the Khumbu region, north east of Kathmandu since the peak was conquered in 1953. Its scenery is amongst the most dramatic in the Nepal Himalaya and takes you closer to the ice covered giants than many other trails.
It is not an easy trek and requires a fair level of fitness and stamina as the trail begins at 2780m with your 35 minute Mountain flight (http://www.mountainmarttreks.com/destinations/nepal/air-t...)
to Lukla and after the first day is mainly above 3000m. Mountain Mart’s adventure team has designed this trek to minimise the risk of AMS (mountain sickness) by including two rest days and keeping the hours walked and the daily rise in altitude to a minimum.
Our Everest Base Camp trekking
trail follows the paths that link friendly Sherpa villages and rises and falls as it crosses the countless streams that carry melt waters to the lowlands. Two nights are spent in the large town of Namche Bazaar with a rest-day acclimatisation walk to the large Sherpa Village of Khumjung to explore their lifestyle, beliefs, skills and warmth. Prayer flags, chortens, mani walls and monasteries testify to the importance of Tibetan Buddhism in their lives.Photo:
