After a one-day acclimatization in Namche Bazar, you start your trek for another two days to Dingboche (4,260m). Another two days of trek will lead to Everest base camp, passing through Gorakshep, the flat land below Kalapathar (5,545m) and Mt. Pumori.
Trekking to the Everest base camp gives you a chance to witness the lifestyle of the Sherpa people, observe the amazing and unique flora and fauna that the national park has to offer, and visit huge monasteries and museums whose existence goes very far behind the time period. The best time to trek Everest is at the beginning of September to October/ November and March to April/May.
