About 13 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking | Top of the World Adventure

The Everest Base Camp Trek (also known as EBC trek) is one of Nepal's most well-known trekking adventures. It is one of the best Everest base camp trek packages, lasting for 13 days, and takes location in the Khumbu region of the country, home of the outstanding Everest Himalayas. The trip is a stunning adventure filled with Khumbu’s pleasant natural, cultural and Himalayan facets. It is one of the great opportunities to revel in the mighty Everest peaks up close from every angle. The sight of the majestic Himalayas of the Everest massif is indescribable in words.

With all those close experiences in the highest mountainous region in the world along with really low temperatures, the Everest base camp trek might look intimidating and difficult but with our guide and your sheer determination, it will be possible to trek at the base of Mount Everest, which will be worth it as you will be creating one of the best experiences anyone can ever imagine at an altitude of 5545m.

The Everest Base Camp Trek route starts with a quick flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Upon touchdown at the Lukla airport, which is one of the highest-located airports in the world, you can without delay sense the trade in the environment. The Himalayan breeze coruscates down the peaks and brushes the hills with a refreshingly chilly patina. The trekking trail then branches off closer to several ethnic Sherpa settlements and villages earlier than ultimately concluding at the base camp of the world’s tallest Himalayan peak.

(P.S: Lukla flights from Kathmandu depend upon the season and traffic at Kathmandu airport. In such situations, all the Lukla flights will be connected to Ramechhap airport.)

    Great trip, improvement on exceptions needed

      |   Chris_van_Baal, Netherlands

    We booked a Mount Everest Base Camp trekking at Top of the World. The Itinerary was very clear and the price was good. The trip itself was amazing. Our guide Pasang helped us with everything and showed us around the Khumbu region. So the experience of the trekking itself was almost flawless. The only downside experienced with Top of the World was at the end. When we wanted to return our airline company did not had flights left for that day. Since we had an open ticket it wouldn’t be an problem to book a new ticket and ask for a refund for the original, according to the employee that picked us from the airport on behalf of Top of the World. Back in Kathmandu we had the biggest trouble to get a full refund from Top of the World. According to the owner the price printed on the ticket was not the amount we could get back. The refund amount varied from 50% to 90%. After lots of quarreling we accepted a $30 loss on our refund. This issues could have been solved with more elegance by Top of the World.
