Our Everest Base Camp and Kalapatther Trek of 18 days is simply a journey that takes you right to the heart of high Himalayas of Khumbu region. Trekking to the base camp of the world’s highest summit along with interacting with the friendly and helpful Sherpa’s known for their loyalty and warm hospitality, exploring the rural Nepal and the life of people living there, visiting the old age monasteries and most of all having an enthralling life time adventurous journey is exactly what the Everest Base Camp and Kalapatther trek is.
This trek can be started by taking a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla or by driving to Jiri or Shivalaya. Most of the trekkers start the journey by flying to Lukla as it saves most of the time than driving to Jiri and start trekking from there. But if you have time and want to travel via less crowded route then you can drive to Jiri and start trekking from there and fly out by Lukla. Make sure you have scheduled two days for acclimatization at Namche and Pheriche to avoid altitude sickness.
On our trek you will reach at a high point of 5545m to the best view point on earth which is Kalapatthar. It offers the superb view of Mount Everest along with other several mountains.

I’d always been dreaming how the tallest summit actually look liked and has been planning to go to the base camp over several years and did it on November 2017. I did the trek with Everest Base Camp Trekking Tours and they made my trip extra amazing. The services were of first class and started with a very warm welcome at airport. The guide Lakpa is a very humble person and showed a great hospitality during the trek. Without him I may not have completed my trek and he was the best guide I could have asked for. Kedar was always concerned and used to call or text once a day and make sure if we had any problems. The accommodation and food were great and views were awesome had an amazing trek of lifetime. And yes the Everest looked absolutely amazing and I salute everyone who have summit this mountain.

Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar trek 18 days was one of the loveliest experiences I ever had. The people, views, the guides and everything were amazing. The services were great as well. The place was far apart from noisy and polluted cities, very clean and fresh. People were very helpful, warm and welcoming. Our guide Pasang was much known to the area and almost everyone used to greet him on the way with smiley faces. I enjoyed the delicious foods on the way and was surprised to see western food as well (though I didn’t taste it as I wanted to give a different taste to my buds). It was a lovely experience and I recommend this trekking to everyone once before you die.

My Sherpa guide Lakpa was a great companion to travel with very knowledgeable and had great sense of humor, brave and honest as well. He was always very careful about us. I could ask him anything and he used to do it in just few minutes. The company also provided great services during my stay in Nepal and everything was very well organized. I got the true value of our money.
