For almost 10 years I was my trip to Nepal postponing time and again. I am an admirer of mountains and natural beauty. Moreover, I love to hike.
There is no place as ideal as Nepal for any kinds of trekking or hiking activities. However, I was stalling my trek to Nepal. Finally, on spring season of 2023 I went on the lifetime journey of Everest Base Camp Trek.
Luckily, I found the great companion for this much awaited adventure, the Nepal High Trek. After lots of searching in the internet, I decided to go with the team of Nepal High Trek.
I had wonderful trekking experience in Nepal. Let me share “My Experience of Everest Base Camp Trek with Nepal High Trek.
Best Service from Arrival to Departure for Trekking in Nepal
Upon arrival in Nepal, I was greeted by Mr. Anjan, the owner of the Nepal High Trek the trekking agency based in Nepal. The trip briefing was top notch followed by the best arrangement of cozy hotel in downtown Thamel.
The evening dinner in the Nepalese cultural restaurant is the biggest highlight of the day. My flight to Lukla was early in the morning. The biggest concern that I had was the arrangement of all the tickets and permits. However, Mr. Anjan carried out very professionally and by the time of dinner, all the gears, permits, and ticket were on my table.
I had heard that the best memory of any trip depends upon the type of travel agency that you choose. On my first night in Kathmandu, I patted my own back in finding the best trekking agency for my trek to Everest Base Camp.
First Time Flying to the Lukla Airport – The World’s Most Extreme Airport
Early in the morning my guide Pawan (assigned by Nepal High Trek) picked me up from my hotel and we headed to airport. The airport was already bustling as most of the mountain flights take place early in the morning to avoid the weather difficulties.
The flight to Lukla airport is considered as the most extreme among high altitude flights. Therefore, I was anxious at the same time excited to board the plane.
It was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my lifetime. The twin otter plane that I boarded glided through the narrow canyon as if the wing may touch the hill on either side. The pilot announced that we are landing shortly but I couldn’t get the sight of the runway.
As the plane landed in the small airstrip with the uphill runway, I gasped and at the same time relieved. It was truly exciting experience.
8 Nights 9 Days Trek to Everest Base Camp from Lukla
The itinerary of my Everest Base Camp Trek followed the classic style of trekking. My physical condition and the lack of experience are the reason why Mr. Anjan came up with the conservative classical trekking style to Everest Base Camp.
There were 2 acclimatization rest days along the way. The mountains are breathtaking and the landscape is awe-inspiring. However, I met numerous solo trekkers and group trekkers who had bad experience of Everest Trekking due to poor management.
Interestingly I was given the royal treatment my staff even if I paid the reasonable amount of money for the trek. The price of the trek I paid is found everywhere in the internet.
Therefore, let me point out “My Experience of Everest Base Camp Trek with Nepal High Trek” in the following things:
1. Accommodation and Food in Everest Region
My Trek to Everest Base Camp was in spring season. Naturally, there were lots of trekkers. This time of the year is the peak season of trekking in Nepal. Therefore, I was worried about the type of accommodation and food that I would be getting during the trek. However, my guide followed the exact itinerary and plans prepared by Mr. Anjan from Nepal High Trek.
We were getting attached bed room all the way up to Dingboche. The place is where I spent two nights for the second time during my trek. The first two nights I spent was in Namche Bazaar. Beyond Dingboche, I spent two nights. One night was in Lobuche and other is in Gorakshep (the last village on the Everest Base Camp Trek trail).
The food was so tasty. You can get to order from the Choice Menu that had interestingly continental, Indian and local Nepalese cuisine. Therefore, I changed my food choices in every meal. The tastier and the recommended one is the Dal Bhat (Nepali Staple Diet).
2. Mountains Seen during EBC Trek
Over 2 dozens of mountains are on the trekking trail of the Everest Base Camp Trek. If you are looking for the mountain wilderness, it is an ideal choice to do the EBC Trek. The most noticeable mountains seen on the trail are Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Amadablam, Cholatse, Tabuche, Pumori, Lobuche, Choyou, and Thamserku. Relish the chance to knit the beautiful Himalayan memories.
3. Everest Base Camp & Kalapathar
One of the major highlight of the trip is that reaching the Everest Base Camp (5364 m). It was my top priority list on the bucket list of the things to do in my life. Therefore, it was exciting. The sight of the foothill of the world’s tallest mountain Mt. Everest is truly blissful. Moreover, interacting with the climbers stationed in the base camp to climb the mountain was another fruitful experience.
The early morning hike to Kalapathar for the sunrise view was the most momentous. I could clearly see the Mt. Everest top brightened by the ray of morning sun. It was one of the most remarkable sights of my life.
Finally, the chance to encounter the local people and experience the diverse vegetation to wildlife in the midst of Himalayan sanctuary, the Everest Base Camp Trek is must to do trek in Nepal. I had so much fun in the Everest region of Nepal.
