Nepal - Mount Everest Basecamp Trek

Nepal - Mount Everest Basecamp Trek

Trekking trip to the base camp of Mount Everest and Kala Pattar
  • 12-day trekking (4 - 9 hours daily)
  • Ascent of Kala Pattar (5,643 m), summit day ↑ 450 m ↓ 1,450 m, 6 - 7 hours
  • From the base camp of Mount Everest look out over the famous Khumbu Icefall
  • Trekken on a scenic mountain trail from Pangpoche to the terraced village Phortse
  • Cross the rushing Dudh Kosi at dizzy heights on Hillary Bridge
  • From the panoramic summit of Kala Pattar marvel at the mighty Mount Everest pyramid
  • Visit the reforestation project "One Day - One Tree" in Pangpoche

Like a wide white ribbon, the Dudh Kosi meanders through the "valley of the milk flow". Left and right rise the rock walls, the path is slowly but steadily uphill. Trekkers, porters and pack animals bustle along the way, and there's plenty of activity on the suspension bridges as well - especially on the Hillary Bridge, which swings high above the canyon in the wind. The waving prayer flags are as colorful as the houses in the villages along the way. 

We devote ourselves to the history and development of the Everest region, familiarize ourselves with the culture of the Sherpa in Namche Bazar, visit the Sir Edmund Hillary Hospital in Khunde and the reforestation project "One day - one tree" in Pangpoche. Our trek takes us through the Sagarmatha National Park, home to the highest mountains in the world. 

We follow the classic route through the Sherpa villages, admire the view of the shapely Ama Dablam from Khumjung and the view of the other ice giants of the Khumbu region from Tengpoche. The trail above the Pheriche Valley leads us to the Khumbu Glacier and on through the hollow of the Lobuche Mountains over the high alp Gorak Shep to the base camp of Mount Everest. From here it goes even higher: We climb the summit of Kala Pattar and enjoy the "black mountain" the "white view". In front of us, the Everest pyramid seems to be within reach, beneath us is the ice world of the Changri glacier, and next to us, the angular Nuptse peak radiates in the sun. 

Not only the altitude but also the sight takes our breath away - surrounded by the highest mountains of the world. admire the view of the shapely Ama Dablam from Khumjung and the view of the other ice giants of the Khumbu region from Tengpoche.

Conditions
Profile: This journey through the Khumbu region leads up to the famous base camp of Mount Everest and the panoramic summit of Kala Pattar, from which the highest mountain in the world seems within reach. On the way through the Dudh-Kosi valley to Namche Bazar and on through the villages of Khumjung and Pangpoche you can experience the Sherpa culture of the region. Requirement: Prerequisite for this trip are fitness and stamina for hiking with up to 9 hours walking time on unpaved roads. For the trekkingtechnically there are no special requirements. The ascent of the Kala Pattar does not pose any technical challenges in good conditions and requires only 6 - 7 hours of walking, including descent back to Pheriche. The ascent can also be left out. Due to adverse weather conditions and depending on the condition of the group, the walking time can be extended, but the trekking stages are regularly interrupted by restful breaks.

Altitude: Due to the altitude of more than 2,500 m, there is the possibility of altitude sickness. In order to reduce the risk, the itinerary is designed in such a way that at the beginning of the journey the possibility of adaptation is given and the body can get used to the changed circumstances. This includes slow and steady walking and intake of sufficient fluid. Nevertheless, there remains a burden on the body and we ask you to contact your family doctor before departure. Further information can be found at www.hauser-exkursionen.de/reiseinfos/hoehe-auf-reisen

Lodging: We stay in Kathmandu in a middle class hotel. All rooms have a bathroom. During the trek we are lodged in lodges. These are simple and functional. The rooms have two beds (with mattress and pillows) and in most cases no bathroom. Only the lodge in Lukla has bathroom in the room. The sanitary facilities are usually located in the corridor or away from the accommodation in the yard. Toilets are mostly available in dry toilets and no toilet paper is provided. The lodges offer running cold water. As a shower opportunity there are often shared showers (hot water for a fee). But especially at high altitudes bowls of heated water are made available for freshening. The rooms are not heated, additional blankets are usually available. In the main building of the lodges is the dining room / lounge, which can be heated by means of an oven. This is usually only cheered in the evening from about 18 clock, as fuel is limited.

Meals: Breakfast is included in this trip and lunch and dinner during the trek. In Kathmandu we eat at the property or stop in traditional restaurants. During the trek we eat in the lodges. For breakfast there is toast / Tibetan bread, jam, porridge (oatmeal), cereals, eggs (fried or fried eggs) or pancakes. For lunch and dinner, dhal bhat (lentil soup with rice and mixed vegetables), soup or pasta dishes. For all meals, tea is served in varying variations. During the hikes, boiled water must be purchased in the lodges for bottling in your own drinking vessel. The cost of services to be purchased in the lodges increases with increasing altitude. So drinking water in Lukla costs about 100 NPR, in Gorak Shep about 300 NPR. This is the same for the use of electricity and Wi-Fi as well as for general meals and consumables such as toilet paper. For food intolerances, we ask you to take care of appropriate food. Vegetarian food is possible, vegan food unfortunately not feasible. We ask for your understanding!

Power supply: In the vast majority of lodges are sockets for charging electrical appliances available (partly for a fee). Periodic power outages affect availability. Depending on the power requirement, it is recommended to take an external battery (power bank) with you.

Favors: It has become a nice touch during our trekkings, the escort team after the trekking no longer needed, but still well-preserved clothing to give. The joy is also great about party favors for women and children of the team members. Your tour guide can arrange a raffle for the farewell evening with the accompanying team, so that a fair distribution is guaranteed. Small gifts, such as colored pencils or chalk, can also be given locally in schools or kindergartens.

Respect: Respect is particularly important in unknown cultures and should be self-evident for all participants and we ask for tactful behavior towards the local population.
