Everest Basecamp Trek

The trek starts from Lukla, one acclimatisation day in Namche Bazaar and another at Dingbhoche. The trek takes you right into the heart of the Himalayas to an altitude higher than any other tea-house trek. The highest point of the trek is Kalapatthar (5545m) with a spectacular view of the Everest Panorama and the Khumbu icefall.
During the trek we come across Sherpa villages, yak caravans, grazing lands, Tengboche Monastery, all with beautiful background of the world's tallest mountains.
Ironically, the view from the base camp is not very impressive and the Everest Peak is completely invisible. However, it gives you the feeling of "I was there". So, Kalapatthar is the highlight of the Trek and many quit the Base Camp part in order to reduce a day of trek.
