Everest - Namche Bazaar

Tengboche Trek

An Everest trek involves a tremendous amount of up-and-down walking. All the rivers in this part of Nepal flow south form Himalayan glaciers, but the trek route proceeds east. Therefore the trail must climb to the ridge that separates two rivers, descended to the river itself, and ascend the next ridge. Even though the trek begins at an elevation of 1860m, it crosses the Dudh Kosi at only 1500m – after considerable uphill climbing; it will come to almost 5500m of elevation to the Everest base camp. The Nepal Himalayas are best seen on this trek as one traces the main route through the Khumbu region from the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar. The trekkers get a close view of the world’s greater mountains, Everest and others.
