Everest Base Camp Trek: The Everest Base Camp trek is a classic trek, which follows in the footsteps of Hillary & Tenzing and ends with an ascent of Kala Pattar for superb views of Everest. Kala Patthar is also known as black rock. Before reaching the Everest Base camp, the trail follows the Khumbu Glacier with huge ice pinnacles.

This trek starts with an exhilarating 35 minutes mountain flight into the airstrip at Lukla. From here you trek slowly upwards to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, following the valley of the Dudh Kosi River. It is not long before you glimpse your first view of Everest as it peeks above the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. At this point it is still many days walk away, but with careful acclimatization it is not long before you find yourself high up in the heart of the Khumbu region. You visit Tengboche monastery en route before continuing on to your goal, an ascent of Kala Pattar, a rocky outcrop to the west of Everest. This vantage point gives fantastic views of the Ice Fall and South Col as well as the immense southwest face of Everest that was first climbed in 1975 by Chris Bonington's team. This is truly a classic trek, which undoubtedly gives one of the best mountain views in the world.
