One of the must do adventures on the planet, Everest Base Camp! I’ve been lucky enough to have trekked in several regions of Nepal and EBC is still one of my favorites.
This was my second time around and loved it just as much as the first! The views are spectacular and the adventure begins from Kathmandu as you cross your fingers there’s good conditions for your flight to Lukla, and Tenzing/Hillary Airport, one of the most dangerous airports in the world.
Due to the late monsoon season this year many trekkers ahead of us were delayed up to 7 days, insane! We were sent back to Kathmandu/Thamel after the first day we tried-flight cancelled. Second day we were on the 3rd flight but due to a minor mechanical problem with our plane we were taken back to Kathmandu half-way through the flight. Finally an hour later we were back up in the air and on our way to Lukla.
The nice part of the Everest Base Camp is the fact that on day 2 you already have views of Everest, weather permitting, and all of the other spectacular peaks of this portion of the range.
I am also a partner in Sacred Trekking, an adventure outfitter based in Kathmandu. We provide fantastic guides and life-long memories of your trek or visit to Nepal.
