Overview of Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek

Nepal is world-famous as a home to the world’s tallest Mountain peak, Mount Everest (8848m), commonly known as Sagarmatha in Nepalese and Chomolungma in the Tibetan language. Peregrine Tour and Travel offer you a Sixteen-day package of Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek starting from your day of arrival to the departure. Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek became popular after two legends, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay Sherpa, successfully summited the peak for the first time in 1953 AD. Since then, over 30,000 people trek to Everest Base camp every year. This year, it is your opportunity to be one of a trekker to reach Everest Base Camp. On this trek, we aim to have a mesmerizing close-up view of the beast of all Himalayas, Mt. Everest, and other associated mountains peak.

We start our trek by taking a short flight to Lukla and walking for four hours crossing DudhKoshiGhat to reach Phakding. Here we will encounter Mount Khumbila, an entire mountain by any climbers. We pass several Sherpa Villages rich in Buddhist culture and tradition. You won’t probably stop your excitement to see all those Sherpa people, their way of living, their homes with large prayer flags known as Lungdar, and several Buddhist Stupas and monasteries.

On each day of our trek, we will be fortunate enough to encounter impressive sights of at least one mountain peak. Starting from the first day of the tour, we will be facing the following mountain peaks viz: Mt. Everest (8848 m), Mt. Lhotse (8501m), Mt. Makalu ( 8463m), Mt.LhotseShar (8393m ), Mt.

Along this region, we might be able to sight various rare wild faunas found in National Park like Red Panda, Himalayan Pheasant, Himalayan Black Bear, Himalayan Tahr; a prey species to Snow Leopards and other animals and birds.

We will also be walking past the village area, where we can easily find Himalayan goats, Yaks, and Naks grazing on the scrubland, and finally, we will reach Everest Base Camp on the ninth day of the trek.

    I had a fabulous time. Great guide and porters, lovely group, fabulous scenery, and people. I’m over 50 though and had never been trekking before. Although I did a lot of walking in preparation what really would have helped most would have been daily going up and down your stairs as much as you can possibly bear. Hill and mountain hiking is a great idea. Also, doing daily is good preparation as you’re doing it daily on the trek. Well worth it though.
