Lifetime Record Everest Base Camp  Trek Complete Guided 

Everest Base Camp Trekking is a journey of a lifetime, to be honest! It will take you to the footstep of the highest peak of the world. The gorgeous Mt. Everest is the 8848 meter-high wonder that has attracted innumerable trekkers and mountaineers from all over the world for decades. there are (Sagarmatha National Park) entrances from Manjo all the way up Everest Base Camp.

A Package holiday to Mt. Everest Base camp is indeed one of the most fascinating adventures. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime odyssey that changes the very perception of life forever.So if you are ready to take up the challenge, pick up your hiking boots, get the gadgets you would need to fight the odds of the Himalayan trail, pick up a root map and set off!

Your epic trail will start as you land at Lukla, the adventure airport in the world. From the airport, you begin your walking trail through the Himalayan hamlets, through rolling meadows, and cultivated farmlands of barley and potatoes, till you reach the capital of Khumbu at the Namche. After you complete your 5,364 meters of Everest Base Camp Trek, you need to overnight at Namche Bazaar again.From Namche Bazaar, your journey continues through the Chola Pass till you reach the Gokyo Lake Valley, which is a paradise on earth, to say the least. You can pay a visit to the Tengboche Buddhist monastery en route to the valley. The monastery is the oldest of its kind in the entire region. You can enjoy some interesting interactions with the monks of the monastery while enjoying their customary drink of butter tea! From this point, the Himalayan Alpine region starts, with vegetation getting lesser and lesser. The beauty of your trail changes with every step, which will leave you virtually spellbound. As you trudge along, you find yourself practically encircled by the majestic peaks towering up against a crystal clear heaven up above! They include Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Lhotse, and then – the colossal EVEREST standing up tall – like an indomitable emperor.

As you continue the trek, which sometimes takes you through the melting glaciers, you get at an altitude of 5545 meters atop the Kalapathar, from where you can catch a 360 degrees breathtaking panoramic view of Everest from close quarters.The hiking distance that you have to cover in the trek is more or less 8 to 9 km, which comes to around 5 to 7 hours of trekking per day. You have to be mentally and physically prepared to take up the challenge. If you are planning such a trek, you need to do some homework by doing some physical exercises that will make you fit for one of the most memorable journeys of your lifetime.

MANUAL NOTE

-Please Note: Information provided above regarding the time needed to complete the trek and the distance covered is entirely based on a general idea.

For those who are willing to spend more days in the Nepal Himalayas, we at Nepal Base Camp treks have an optional trekking package with similar amenities. It is a 16-day package that suits best for those with a more relaxed trekking itinerary.

Words of Caution: The flight to Lukla, the trek route and the journey back to Kathmandu might at times be marred by inclement weather and cloudy, overcast conditions as an abrupt change in the climate is a regular phenomenon of the entire region. Hence, the flight timings and the tour itinerary are subject to last minute changes or delays or even cancellation for a day or more.

However, one good sign is that these phenomena do not occur too frequently during the top pre-monsoon (February to April) and post-monsoon (Late September to December) seasons.

However, it is advisable that due to this probability you have some extra days in your kitty. In case the weather gets too bad, you have the option of changing your ticket, or availing chartered helicopter services, though that will bear an extra cost.

In October 2014, 2015 I completed another wonderful family trek in Nepal to Langtang and Gosainkund lakes thanks to Sappa and his company “Nepal Base Camp Treks”. I first met Sappa in 2008 on a family Gokyo Lakes Trek and EBC Trek. At that time, I was greatly impressed by the highly professional approach he took to mountain guiding. I’m very happy to report that in 2014 nothing has changed. Sappa continues to maintain an exceptionally high standard of service and this together with his warm, generous and engaging personality ensured everyone in our party had an amazing time during their visit to Nepal.

We were treated to fantastic traditional Nepalese food and cultural performances at welcoming and farewell dinners in Kathmandu; expertly and safely guided over 14 days of trekking through an incredibly beautiful landscape; and provided with detailed and knowledgeable commentary during our tours of all the main sites around Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan. I’m very happy to report that the organisation of our transport, sightseeing, accommodation and trekking arrangements was first rate and that over three weeks everything ran very smoothly indeed. Overall, Sappa‘s vast guiding experience and mountain knowledge ensured that our itinerary was structured in such a way that it provided us with a good deal of flexibility and ample time to absorb the magnificent mountain views while trekking, as well as not being rushed on our tours of Kathmandu and surrounds.

On this trip, a few in our party were first time trekkers. What a fantastic introduction to trekking in the Nepal Himalaya they received thanks to the great care and attention to every little detail provided by Sappa and his fabulous support crew Manoj, Shankar and Suraj. Thank you Sappa,for also keeping up the tradition of supplying us with bananas and chocolate bars. I must also mention that the pomegranate seeds the crew provided to us on our way to Langtang was an unexpected but greatly appreciated treat. Importantly, from a safety aspect, we were more than pleased to find that Nepal Base Camp Treks used modern four wheel drive vehicles to take us to the start of our trek in Syabrubesi and also for the return journey from Dhunche. We were also very impressed to observe that Sappa and his company take very good care of their support crews.

If you are planning to visit Nepal, I have no hesitation in recommending Sappa and his company “Nepal Base Camp Treks” for trouble free trekking and touring. You will not be disappointed. I can’t wait for my next trek with Sappa, which will be around Manaslu trek.

German Language: Wir haben mit Sappa und einem Träger im Mai 2011 eine elftägige Trekking Tour durch die Langtang und Helambu Region gemacht. Wir sind das Langtang Tal von Syrabrubesi bis Kanjin Gompa hoch gewandert und dann über die Gosainkunde Seen, den Laurebina Pass und die Helambu Region nach Kathmandu zurückgekehrt. Der Trek war einfach wundervoll! Er führt durch verschiedene Vegetationszonen mit reicher Flora und Fauna und überwältigenden Aussichten auf die Gipfel des Himalaya. Darüber hinaus bot der Trek einen tiefen Einblick die die Tamang Kultur und das Leben und die Tradition der nepalesischen und tibetanischen Bevölkerung.

Sappa ist ein sehr erfahrener Führer, der die Gegend sehr gut kennt. Er verstand es perfekt, die Länge der täglichen Etappen und die Trekkinggeschwindigkeit auf unsere Wünsche und Bedürfnisse anzupassen und war insbesondere ein guter Ratgeber bei Fragen zur Höhenkrankheit. Sappa hat sich um alle Angelegenheiten mit den Lodges, den örtlichen Behörden, den Taxi- und Busfahrern etc. gekümmert. Er hat alle unsere Fragen zu den verschiedenen Bergketten und -gipfeln zur Länge der Auf- und Abstiege und zu den anderen Details der Gegend bereitwillig und mit großer Begeisterung beantwortet. Es war eine große Freude, ihm bei den Anekdoten aus dem Leben der Nepalesen, der Religion, Politik und Natur zuzuhören. Mit seiner Begeisterung und seinem Humor hat Sappa den Trek zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis gemacht. Wir können Sappa als erfahrenen, verständnisvollen und sympathischen Führer uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Nach den elf Tagen in der Einsamkeit des Himalaya ist aus unserem Führer ein Freund geworden.”

Sappa é o cara. Visitei o Nepal em duas ocasiões. Na primeira ele foi meu guia no circuito Annapurna, onde caminhamos por 21 dias. Na segunda ele nos guiou nos treks Langtang, Gosainkunda e Helambu por 17 dias. Alem disso, ele foi nosso guia no trek Cheppang Hills. Como se não bastasse, fizemos também o clássico Base Camp Everest partindo de Jiri e passando por Renjo La e Cho La, em 24 dias com o seu irmão Lako. O Nepal é um pais maravilhoso e a companhia de um guia como Sappa fez toda a diferença, pois ele nos explicou muito sobre a cultura local, religião, situação política/conflitos no pais e como funciona a sociedade no Nepal em geral. Ele fala muito bem inglês, é muito bem humorado e as risadas estão garantidas. Pra resumir, você começa a trilha com um guia e termina com um amigo. Recomendo-o sem hesitar. Se tiver perguntas pode me escrever.
