    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 soaring to unbelievable height.

    best time to do the Everest Base Camp Trek

    Yes, the Everest Base Camp trek is a popular trek, but by no means is a trek that anyone can do. You will experience altitude sickness, loss of appetite, etc..so you will need to acclimatize to the high altitude.

    Most people also travel before the monsoon season (March and April), which is peak season for the Everest Base Camp Trek. However, before monsoon it’s usually cloudy by late morning so you won't get as good clear views like you would during the dry season, or after the monsoon season (October until Christmas).

    hike to the top of Kala Patthar

    I’ve been to Nepal to trek Everest and the views from Kala Patthar are second to none. The base of Everest Camp only allows you to see Everest’s tip. It's great to tell everyone you've been to Everest Base Camp but trekking to the summit of Kala Patthar is really the highlight of the Everest Base Camp trek. Not point coming all the way to Nepal otherwise if you don't get to see Everest, Lohtse and Nuptse which you will get to see from the top of Kala Patthar.

    more to trekking in Nepal than Everest

    Trekking isnt just limited to Everest base camp. The Government of Nepal have lifted the restrictions they had to the trekking areas close to the birder with Tibet. These new trekking routes such as Mahabharat Rhododendron Trek, Panchase Trek and Pikey Hill Trek give the Everest and the Annapurna treks a run for their money.
