In the Everest Base Camp Trekking arranged by Go For Nepal Treks and Expedition, we will explore the naturally beautiful places of Nepal. The Everest Camp Trek combines places like Namche Bazaar, Gorakshep, Kalapatthar, Everest Base Camp and Lukla.

The trek begins at Phadking and ends at Lukla. In Namche Bazaar, we will get a chance for acclimatization. Namche is a market where trekkers can refill their goods and necessities. On Friday evening and Saturday, special markets are put up in the Bazaar. The Namche Bazaar has been a trading post since the traditional times. Apart from the market, Namche monastery, Namche library and Museum related to Sherpa life are also some attractions of Namche.

The Thyangboche monastery is the largest monastery in the Khumbu region. We will pass by the Thyangboche monastery while heading towards Gorakshep from Namche Bazaar. Gorakshep is a village in the Sagarmatha National Park. Sherpa people are the local inhabitants of this place. They make their living by guiding and mountaineering. Gorakshep is also the original base camp for Everest. We will begin our hike to Kalapathar at Gorakshep. Kalapathar is the most convenient spot to view Mt. Everest. Apart from Everest, other peaks like Nuptse Nup II, Changtse and north of Lhotse is also seen from Kalapathar.
