Why should every trekker go for the Everest Base Camp Trek?

Posted by Ron William on December 21st, 2017

Once you trek to the Himalayan range, no force in the universe can hold you back for your next adventure. It’s an adrenaline rush that none can avoid. The list of destinations for trekking in Nepal is quite long, and it will be unfair not to visit the prime ones that undoubtedly include Everest Base Camp.

It is a matter of the Everest. Therefore, getting the view of the mighty peak from the base will surely be mesmerising. However, the view of the Everest is not all. You are going to encounter an entirely charismatic cultural and natural aspect of Nepal in this trek that you can hardly get in any other treks.

Each step you take towards reaching your destination will be filled with surprises. Think about the enthralling views of sunrise and sunset you are going to watch from the trenching bends of the trekking route! Isn’t it enough for you to prepare you for the trek?

Read on to find out some of the primary reasons for you to tick your list for this particular trek this time.

You should do the trek because ‘You Can.'

It's the self-belief and mental strength that will work in favour of you more than anything as you decide to go for the trek. There is no doubt about the fact that at times, your physical strength can get compromised. However, the willpower to see and feel the beauty up close will get you moving.

A Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla – fly through the mountain

Your trip gets started as you get down to Lukla by taking a flight from Kathmandu. It takes around 40 minutes to cover the distance. However, the scenic beauty you will experience throughout the route is beyond description. The flight will guide you through the mountains where the peaks will be visible from the top.

 A visit to age-old tea houses

Do you wish to a glimpse of the tradition and culture of Nepal? The traditional teahouse en route the trek will let you put down the heavy rucksack for a while and relax for sometimes with tea. If you are lucky enough, you may also come across some people who are even going to the summit.

Get to know the brave Sherpas

If meeting new people encourages you to carry on the trek, the sherpas will be there for you. The simplistic nature and honesty of those people whose daily life is a struggle altogether are sure to leave you spellbound. Their encouraging stories of going through the treacherous paths for their livelihood are sure to inspire you from the core.

Monasteries in such high altitude – A divine feeling

A fascinating part you will come across during the trek is the monasteries in such a high-altitude. You will instantly get a heavenly feeling entering the premises of Tengboche monastery. Built in the year 1916, a visit to the monastery will thrill you from the core.

A view of the Everest and more

Your view is not only limited to the fascinating views of Everest. Throughout the Everest Base Camp Trek, you will be able to see the peaks of Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and a lot more. As you reach Kala Pattar from where the view of the Everest is most enchanting, you will probably get what you have come for through the long ways.
