About Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days

14 Days Everest Base Camp trek is way one can trek up to the foothill of Everest in the shortest way possible. This trek leads you through the beautiful Khumbu region all the way to the foothill of the highest mountain in the world. Having many of the high snowcapped mountains (elevation more than 7000 m), beautiful glaciers, icefalls, lakes, moraine valleys, oak, pine and rhododendron forest and rivers, Khumbu region is the paradise for adventurous trekking. Everest region trekking provides you with the most amazing up-close view of the highest mountain in the world and many other peaks such as Mt Amadablam, Mt Cho Oyu, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, etc. The view of sunrise from Kalapatthar is one of the most beautiful experiences of Everest Base Camp trekking journey. 

Starting from Kathmandu, a scenic flight takes you to Lukla. The trek leads you through a beautiful valley of Dudh Koshi river covered in Pine and Oak forests. This trek is a wonderful opportunity to explore Sagarmatha National Park, which is one of the UNESCO world heritage sites. This park is home of many rare floras and faunas such as Lesser Panda, Himalayan Thar, Himalayan Monal, Musk deer, etc. 

Apart from that, Everest Base Camp 14 days trek package lets you explore the Sherpa People, their culture and tradition who reside in the Khumbu region. Staying in tea houses is an amazing experience one can have by living a minimalistic life and learning about Sherpa traditions and lifestyle. Many of the famous Buddhist monasteries, Kanis, and Gompas lie along the way. Tengboche monastery is one of the biggest monasteries in the Everest Region and is also a viewpoint to get picturesque views of the Himalayas in this region. 

Lhotse and Nuptse can be seen standing in front reaching Everest Base Camp but Everest seems like peeking behind these two giants. So, this trek has included a hike to Kalapatthar. Kalapatthar is the best viewpoint to get a closeup view of Everest. Mountains look majestic during sunrises and sunsets, so an early morning hike to Kalapatthar chasing the sunrise is also one of the major attraction of this trek. Completing this trek by tackling the difficulty of trekking in freezing temperature and low levels of Oxygen several hours a day for 14 days is worth everything as it can be one of the best experiences one can have in life.

Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 2 reviews

We’ve just completed our Everest base camp trek with sublime trails. Ram and the crew can go extra miles to ensure that we are safe and make us feel that we are at good hand. There was no point of worry since the time we met ram at the airport in Kathmandu.Ram gave us very experience trekking guide ‘shiva’ and porter Pemba. they both are very friendly and making sure we enjoyed all the time . After the trek ram took us to farewell dinner and it was our pleasure to try Nepalese DHIDO and local wine. Overall a very experienced and friendly team. Can’t wait to go back again for another sublime experience . Highly recommended !!!

Everything was well organized and taken care of with Sublime Trails so we could just relax & enjoy our trek. From the moment we arrived at the Kathmandu airport our guide Rishi was waiting with a sign with our names on it. He shook our hands and greeted us with "Welcome to Nepal" Rishi and a driver took us to our lovely hotel in Kathmandu where we met with Ram, the owner of Sublime Trails, and paid for our Trek. Ram made arrangements for a city tour of Kathmandu for the following day which was great to learn about Nepal's culture. That night Ram met with us again to take care of any last minute preparations for our trek - hiring down jackets and sleeping bags, etc. Our trek to Everest Base Camp was incredible because of our awesome guide Rishi - he has an amazing sense of humour and loved playing cards and showing us his magic tricks. Our porter Kumar was full of energy and always smiling. Talking with other Trekkers on the trail we could easily tell we made the best decision to book with Sublime Trails. We loved that we had our own private tour, we weren't packed into a big group like other Trekkers and we planned our trek date completely around our travel plans, no set schedule. Ram and his team take care of everything beginning to end. When we returned to Kathmandu, Ram took us out for a farewell dinner to celebrate our accomplishment and provide feedback on our trekking experience. It's obvious Ram goes above and beyond to genuinely care for his customers.  We highly recommend Sublime Trails for trekking in Nepal!!! Thank you so much to Ram for all the arrangements and to Rishi & Kumar for a fantastic trek!
