Everest Inn is a chain of lodges along the Everest trail dedicated to providing a high level of Nepalese hospitality in a hygienic and neat environment to the trekkers at a very competitive price. Everest Inn runs four lodges in Lukla, Phakding, Namche and Pheriche and three other lodges in Devoche, Lobuche and Gorakshep provide the similar services under the Everest Inn Partner status.
Everest Base Camp has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in 1953. To reach this part of the Himalaya within a limited time, we have devised this two-week trek to Everest Base Camp which runs directly to and from Lukla.
The Everest Base Camp trek, a very well known mountain trek, starts at the upper Phakding and follows the Dudh Koshi valley which climbs up to the Sherpa capital of Namche, a bustling bazaar that's a junction for trekkers, the local Sherpa and expeditions en route to the mighty Mt. Everest. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia, and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it the kind of walk you will remember for a long, long time. On the cliffs above the river, it is possible to spot musk deer and the Himalayan Thar. From Namche, we trek along a high traversing path where we have our first good views of Everest and then head towards Thyangboche Monastery, which is about 4 hours climb. The monastery sits at 3867m in a clearing surrounded by dwarf firs and rhododendrons. The monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. The view from this spot, seen to best advantage in the morning, is absolutely mesmerizing and stunning and is rightly deemed to be one of the most magnificent in the world.
We then descend to the Imja Khola and continue to the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche before finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. We then follow the glacier, first to Lobuche, a vantage point for some spectacular views of the Ama Dablam, Taweche, and other peaks and then hike to Gorakshep for a breather. We also have the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar from where we can get some awesome views of the Himalayan giants which literally numb your senses with breathless admiration that beholds the eye, and makes up for the lung-bursting climb that took you up there. You soon realize it was absolutely worth it. This also includes fantastic views of the south-west face of the colossal Mt. Everest.
We then trek down to Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu Ice Fall before finally making our way back down to Lukla.
