There are temporary campsites and tents in the base camp for climbers during the climbing periods. The journey to classic Everest base camp can usually be completed in 11 to 13 days. Everest base camp trek possible to do all the seasons of the year, but we recommended hikes to do on spring and autumn seasons for wonderful views and perfect temperature to hike.

From Kathmandu tourist can take about 30 minutes flight to Lukla airport with a panoramic view of the snow-capped skyscrapers mountains and biodiversity and natural beauty. But there is no any confirm seat number in the tiny plane so we recommend you to get left hand side seats. The airport is known around the world Tenzing Hillary airport, (THE MAIN GATEWAY TO EVEREST) at an altitude of 2770 meter above sea level from where the journey starts to the Everest base camp trek. The journey leads you across the Dudhakoshi valley to the Phakding village and overlooks some local Sherpa villages and magnificent scenery of the hills.

Located at an altitude of 3444 meter, Namche bazar is the major trading center of the Khumbu region. Where the local market is on every Friday and Saturday of the week, and the locals villagers come here to buy for the households so be sure to visit if time allows. During the trip hiker will observe a variety of fora and fauna, immortal and unshakable Himalayan ranges, Glaciers white rivers as well as experience the culture, customs, manners and festivals of the Sherpa people. The major festivals of the Sherpa community are Lhosar, Manirimdu, Dumji and Fangi. Monasteries, white Chhorten (Stupas), Mane stones and praying wheels are the creations of the immortal Buddhist history of the Khumbu region. Meanwhile Tengboche monastery is the largest monastery in the khumbu region. Which is an altitude of 3860 meters above sea level. Leaving the viewing valleys, the journey gradually draws closer to the base camp with thin air and beautiful mountains from under the open blue sky and the base camp looks forward to welcoming hiker. When the trekker steps on the base camp, from where there no words to express the happiness with hiker and feeling victory, happiness forgets the whole world, sorrow and pains.

    My partner and I met KV Rai (owner and operator of Active Himalaya Treks) in April of 2017 when he guided us on a 7 day trek in the Langtang Valley of the Himalayas. KV did everything to ensure that our trek was memorable. He was professional, knowledgeable, fun, and full of energy. My partner and I are highly athletic and he ensured that our pace and activities were consistent with our abilities and interests. KV also went out of his way to make our experience authentic, allowing us to interact with the villagers and owners of the teahouses in ways that we did not see others doing. We had an opportunity to cook with a family and share a meal and spent time with the villagers when other trekkers stayed with their groups. These were precious moments that left lasting impressions. Further, KV’s knowledge of geography, culture, politics, etc. made our trip a tremendous learning experience. We absolutely adored KV and trek. By the end of the trip, we had developed such a strong bond with KV and were so enamoured with the Nepal he had shown us that we were determined to return the following year to do the Everest Base Camp trek.

    We stayed in touch with KV via Facebook messenger and email throughout the next break we had from our work as international teachers and began to plan our next trip to Nepal. As we got closer to the trip we said that we would not go with another guide other than KV. We made this a reality, returning to do the Everest Base Camp trek in December of 2017.

    Our trip completing the Everest Base Camp trek was spectacular. On this trip, KV was managing two additional clients. The first trek we were his only clients. Despite this, and the fact that the clients were not eqip in many ways for such an undertaking, KV did a miraculous job of balancing all of our needs and varying physical capabilities. Again, he was professional, thoughtful, and knowledge. We watched him navigate some difficult choices to accomodate the limitations of his other clients, and balance giving us the time and attention as if we were family. Everest Base Camp was the single most amazing trekking experience I have ever had and may have in my life. An essential part of that was KV and the relationship that we had developed. KV ensures that you are informed, safe, comfortable (or as comfortable as you can be at 17,000 ft in December), and happy. His energy is infectious; his smile is joyous; his attention to detail fantastic.

    The Everest Base Camp trek was a year and a half ago. I communicate with KV at least once a month. I am as close to him as many family members. He even offered to host our wedding at his family home. I cannot speak more highly of him and his business. If you want an authentic, memorable, once in a lifetime experience, trek with KV and Active Himalaya Treks.

    I highly recommend Active Himalaya Treks. Kevin is a wonderful human.
    It was so much fun to spend the week exploring Nepal with him. He did a great job customizing our vacation to fit our needs. We got to experience trekking in the mountains near Pokhara and the Annapurna range; explore the jungle in Chitwan National Park; explore the sights of Kathmandu; and see Mt Everest from a Himalayan mountain flight. Kevin arranged all of this and made great recommendations on all of it.
