The Everest National Park is one of the most famous trekking adventures in Nepal. It takes place in the Khumbu region of the country, home of the magnificent Everest Himalayas. The journey is a beautiful adventure filled with Khumbu’s best natural, cultural and Himalayan facets. It is one of the best opportunities to enjoy the mighty Everest peaks up close. The sight of the majestic Himalayas of the Everest massif is something that is indescribable in words. They are truly breath-taking and awe-inspiring. Paired with the cultural presence of the region, the journey is an unforgettable trip that will definitely stick to one’s minds for many years.
The Everest Base Camp Trek begins with a short flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Upon landing at the Lukla airport, which is one of the highest-located airports in the world, you can immediately feel the change 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 towards various ethnic Sherpa settlements and villages before finally concluding at the base camp of the world’s tallest Himalayan peak.
At each step of the journey, the magnificent views of the mountain peaks decorate the skyline. The natural tapestry of the region is also equally ornamental, woven together into a canvas of beauty. The path goes through alpine woodlands and rhododendron groves, winding along steep ridgelines and river gorges. Moreover, the well-trodden path goes through famous overnight stops along the way, like Namche Bazaar, Dingboche and Tengboche to name a few. Each of the villages in the region offer amazing views of the mountain peaks, and also present cultural contours in many forms, like Stupas, chortens, Gumbas and colorful prayer flags that define the region’s ethnic semblance.
As such, the trek is incorporated with many highlights. You will visit the renowned Himalayan town of Namche Bazaar- also known as the Gateway to Everest. It was an ancient trading point between the Himalayan traders and low-land merchants. Views of Peaks like the Thamserku, the Kongdi RI, the Ama Dablam, Lhotse Himal, the Nuptse Peak, and the Kusum Kanguru and of course- Mount Everest among many others from the town are utterly mesmerizing.
Likewise, as you trek through the Dudh Koshi and Imja River valleys, you also come to the village of Tengboche, which harbors the famous Tengboche Monastery- one of the largest and oldest Buddhist monasteries in the region. As you near the base camp, you also pay a visit to Kalapatthar, one of the most well-known vantage points in Khumbu. Kalapatthar presents panoramic views of the entire Mount Everest massif in a spectacular fashion. Treks to the vantage point occur in the early hours of dawn as the point is known for its sunrise view amidst the ivory Himalayan peaks. To boot, the path also coruscates through the Sagarmatha National Park- a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site and a protected area, home to many of the region’s endangered species of animals.
