14 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking is the most spectacular trekking itinerary to Everest Base Camp. Instead of 11, 1o, 12 or 15 and 16 days itinerary, a majority of the trekkers and adventure enthusiasts love to do Everest Base camp Trekking in 14 days. 14 days Everest Base Camp Trekking is the best way of saving time and budget. You can save both time and money, it doesn’t mean that we are in rush and we cannot have good experience of the trip. Undoubtedly, we will have better and memorable trekking experience than other itineraries. Even there is no doubt that we can have enough acclimatization and enough time for capturing the insights of local culture and mesmerizing Mountain View. As a whole, we can celebrate the trip in its fullest form.
14 days Everest Base Camp Trekking also connects Kathmandu Valley Sightseeing. We do the sightseeing tour of UNESCO World Heritage site within the valley. And the next day, we take a short flight to Lukla from Kathmandu airport. Actually, it 35 minutes scenic flight to the most dangerous airport of the world. However, the pilots are professionals to land the smaller aircraft safely.
The Lukla flights sometimes bother trekkers. Due to bad weather, the flights are disturbed or postponed. Even sometimes the trekkers have to wait for 3-4 days for the favorable weather to get the flight. So, it is recommended to have some spare days if we are traveling to Everest Region. In this way, our international flight won’t get disturbed.
We meet entire team at Lukla and trek to Phakding. Via Manjo and Jorsalle, we get into Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the national park located at the highest elevation in the world. Gradually, we get Namche Bazaar. At the end of the trip before getting Namche, the trail is really challenging.
Namche Bazaar is the capital of Everest region and popular trade and tourist hub. It is basically popular for Tibetan market, Sherpa Cultural museum and Hotel Everest View. We, normally, have acclimatization at Namche.
Heading from Namche, we get Tengboche, a holy monastery in the Sagarmatha National Park. Passing through Periche and Lobuche, we get to Gorakh Shep. We use the next early morning to climb Kalapatthar. We enjoy the astounding view of mountain giants including Pumori, Lhotse, Nuptse and Mt. Everest. Heading further, we get Everest Base Camp and again celebrate magnificent mountain views and gradually get back to Lukla along the same trail via Tengboche and Namche. Ultimately, we again take a short flight to get back Kathmandu.
