How is it like to go on EBC trek? 

Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek starts with the flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. The thrill begins to take over your soul immediately after landing at the world’s most extreme airport, the Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla.

Khumbu region of Nepal, where Mt. Everest is situated, is much diversified in terms of nature and culture. The trip heads to Namche Bazaar after the first-night rest in Phakding. The first sight of glorious Mt. Everest can be seen prior 30 minutes before reaching Namche.

Adventurous Larpchen Bridge, too, can be fascinating. Acclimatization hiking is done the following day to adjust your mind and body to high altitude walking journey of Everest Base Camp. During acclimatization, trekkers reach the highest located organized hotel in the world, the Everest View Hotel.

If weather permits you can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the mountains up and close. The view of Mt. Thamserku, Amadablam, Tabuchi, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Everest can be cherished while sipping a cup of coffee in the Hotel’s terrace restaurant. Strolling around various eateries, shops, and bars of Namche Bazar during the evening could also endow some insights about the lifestyle of Sherpa people. The journey from Namche Bazaar onwards is purely Himalayan wilderness.

Monastery, Memorials & More 

On the backdrop of the Tengboche Monastery and Mt. Amadablam is one of the most coveted destinations: Everest Base Camp. After getting the blessings from the monastery, the trail leads trekkers to the windy valley of Dingboche via Pangboche.

Another acclimatization hiking takes place in the form of Nagarshan Hill (5100 m) during the rest day at Dingboche. From this place, the marvelous view of Mt. Pumori looms large throughout until trekkers reach Gorakshep.

The memorial of famous climbers like Scott Fischer, Rob Hall, Babu Chhiri, Pasang Lhamu, and others in Thukla Pass is an essential aspect of learning the fate of brave mountaineers. A tranquil hamlet of Lobuche and moraines trail leads trekkers to Gorakshep. About 2 hours of walking from this place are iconic Everest Base Camp (5364 m).

Leave your footprints on a legendary spot where famous Everest climbers started their summit journey. After such vivacious moment in EBC, early morning hiking of Kalapathar (5545 m) endow majestic joy of witnessing sunrise phenomena. This place is probably the highest place to witness the sunrise - a sunrise to remember.

Just got back from an 8-day trek around the Everest region! It was incredible! I highly recommend this company! They took care of everything and catered to our individual group needs. Raj knows his stuff and really cared about our wellbeing the entire time. It was an amazing adventure!

Janelle Parslow (from United States)

There really are no words to accurately capture what it was like to trek with Green Society Adventure and see the wonders of Everest Himalayas. Truly a breathtaking experience and one that I will never forget! Raj was such an awesome guide! Super knowledgeable about the mountains, vistas, history, and everything in-between, and always willing to answer my million and one questions. It was a pleasure to get to know him and his porters, and I will ABSOLUTELY come back and hire him in a heartbeat. Thank you Green Society and team for everything!

Aleks Slijepcevie (from United States)

I trekked with Green Society Adventure twice to Gokyo and EBC. Both treks were great and very affordable. Raj is a really very nice guide, always kind, helpful and sincere. He arranged both of our treks. The overall experience was just amazing :) Many thanks to Green Society Adventure and Raj! I'm planning to arrange my next trip to Upper Mustang with them too.

Tatiana Shukhina (from Russian Federation)

I organize an EBC trek with Green Society Adventure and my guide is one of the best, kindest, fabulous. He is considerate, kind and allows people to walk at their own pace. Best experience ever to be had if your trek is led by Raj. So, come on people, get back to Nepal and experience all it has to offer. Isn't it enough that all the people in Nepal suffered after the earthquake? Now they are suffering from a lack of tourism and thus a lack of income. Get to Kathmandu and experience one of the most mystical places on the planet - NEPAL!! I'd highly recommend Raj and Green Society Adventure to any future trekkers.
