There is a reason why the Everest base camp trekking (EBC Trek) is categorized as ‘difficult’ for the normal trekkers. Unlike other Himalayan treks of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, the route takes you on various kinds of terrains. Challenging you both physically & mentally. But with tough work and perseverance, you will get to witness some rarest views of a U-shaped valley along with the most vibrant colors of the sky and moraine-laden mountains.
Everest Base Camp Trek is a 'Feeling'
EBC has been visited by some of the greatest adventurers in the history of hiking. And following the same trail, has a different fanbase. Get the rarest chance to walk on the same path and feel proud in every step that you've made here.
However, to achieve that feeling you need to ensure you have a perfectly fit body. More than that, it is seriously recommended that you must have done a few Himalayan treks before choosing this one. As trekking up to 18,000 feet is something you cannot joke over. This trek is all about endurance. More than the steepness and boulder-laden route, your endurance will be challenged throughout.

Fortunately, the Everest camp journey with Moustache allows you to stay at "teahouses" along the way, saving you the trouble of transporting tents and food. A teahouse is often a modest basic room with two cots and thin timber walls, with an adjoining Western toilet and hot shower if you're lucky. Another advantage of staying in these small lodges is the friendship that develops in the shared dining area with other trekkers—nothing sounds more fun like trading stories over a few glasses of beer!
The majority of people have only heard of EBC. If you're the type who likes to cross things off a list, your trek will stop there, but it'll be a barren jumble of ice and rock with no view of Chomolungma's summit (the Tibetan name for Mt Everest). If you're here for the adventure, however, Kala Pattar, a brown slope that rises behind Gorak Shep's final camp, is the place to go. Kala Pattar lies nearly 600 feet higher than Mt Everest base camp, at 18,200 feet, and the view of Everest, flanked by its sentinels Lhotse and Nuptse, is just breathtaking.
There are plenty more options to surprise you
Think again if you are picturing Mount Everest Base Camp in complete peace. It attracts 40,000 visitors each year as the world's ultimate trekking destination! So, on the negative side, you're never truly alone. On the plus side, the ever-changing alpine panorama that unfolds every day is simply breathtaking. Aside from Everest, the vista includes three of the world's highest peaks: Mt Lhotse (27,940 feet), Mt Makalu (27,838 feet), and Mt Cho Oyu (26,864 feet), as well as the stunning Ama Dablam.
