Overview

Trekking in Nepal is one of the best adventures and Everest Base Camp Trek is the best of them. The adventure into the foothill of the highest peak of, Everest Base Camp Trekking is a lifetime adventure. The 16 days trekking in Nepal offers tourists from around the world to explore the cultural and natural wonders of the Khumbu Region. 
The superb views of the mountains, the amazing local life, and the living style of the Sherpa people, and the occasional encounters of the wildlife are the major attractions. Everest Base Camp Trek kicks off with a scenic flight to Lukla Airport (considered as one of the adventurous airports in the world). It then gradually goes up to Namche Bazar, Tengboche then to Everest Base Camp. The trip then signs off with an amazing sunrise view from Kalapathar.

Historical  background of Everest:

There was a yeti on the bottom of the great Mt. Everest a long time back. a Local flying Lama and the same yeti had a beautiful bonding as friendship. One day a big avalanche hit them in the center of Everest, the Flying Lama survived because of his power to fly but the Yeti didn't.  Since then the dead body of the same Yeti has been kept inside a Monastery in Pangboche.

Back in the year 1943, a group of 16 people from Britain try to climb Everest but didn't get success. Later on, Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary tried to complete the Everest summit twice before they get success on 29 May 1953. And this date is now popularly known for Everest Marathon day or typically Everest Day. By the year 2019 more than 50,000 successful Everest summit had already been done. 

Namche Bazar is located in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal is the gateway to Everest Base Camp. where you can find luxury hotels, lots of continental food, banking facilities, a medical center, a supermarket, a monastery, and everything that can be found in Kathmandu. it's the headquarters of Sagarmatha National Park and buffers zone. One of the main viewpoints of the Everest region, Everest view hotel lies at the top of Namche Bazar. Khumbu glacier and Khumbu icefall are some of the highest icefalls and glaciers in the world. On the bottom of Khumbu Glacier and on the top of the Thukla Hill, there is a memorial of Everest climbers who made it to the summit of Everest but couldn't save their lives by the extreme climate condition in the Everest region. On the memorial in this place, we can find the statue of some of the legendary climbers who breaks the record Rob Holl, Scott Fisher, Babu Chhiring Sherpa, etc.

The best time to trekking  Everest base camp:

Trekking in Nepal is a seasonal activity and the best time to trek in Nepal is spring (March-May) and Autumn (September-November). Trekking Everest Base Camp in Winter (December-February) is considered to be okay. But trekking in Monsoon (June-August) is not recommended due to the heavy rainfall and the uncertainty on Lukla Flight
Difficulty wise Everest Base Camp Trek is rated as moderately difficult trekking. The maximum elevation, you will get during the trekking is 5,545m. at Kalapathar.  During the trek to Everest Base Camp 5364 m elevation, you will be walking five to seven hours a day and that is mostly above 3500 meters above the sea level. The trek is local teahouse trekking where you will be spending the nights on the local lodges.
