Everest base camp trek 3 days best season information in details 

The best season for the Mount Everest trek 3 days are March to June and September to December. It is because the estimated weather and climatic condition of the place are comparatively pleasing and sound. Surrounding views are clearer and the mountains remain sparklingly charming. Lesser (tends to no) rainfall and non-slippery path are also important factors.

Everest base camp is constantly known as the best tourist destination in the world. Expediting the base camp of Mount Everest (8848m) would be the most delightful and courageous memory. Surveying the pinnacle of Mount Everest and several different mountains in such a brief timeframe would give you a lifetime essential affair.

Mount Everest is known to utter aloud about the little yet excellent nation, Nepal to the world. Everest is privately known as Sagarmatha as indicated by the Nepalese language and Chomolungma as per the Tibetan language. Regular Everest base camp trek provides an opportunity to hike all the way from Lukla airport to EBC and hike downhill to Lukla in 11 days. On day 12 you will fly to Kathmandu from Lukla on a regular flight. We have also an alternative luxury helicopter ride to Kathmandu from Lukla airport at a reasonable cost.

Except for the beautiful panoramic view of mountains, the trek allows you to stand on the Kalapatthar, the big black stone. It is generally said that the view of Mount Everest is not the best from Everest base camp as the surrounding mountains disturb the sight. And, the best view of Mount Everest is got from the Kalapatthar. From here, you get to oversee natural Himalayan beauty with clearer and settling sights, which you will not be able to get from any other place in the world.

Mount Everest is clearer from Kala Patthar as Mount Everest itself is seen more precisely and clearly, keeping other side-mountains aside. Everest View Hotel is the main hotel dwelling in such an extraordinary stature of 3962 meters. It is likewise prominent for giving a superb perspective on Mount Everest and other excellent mountains.

The best truth about this EBC short trek is that it gives the experience of trekking through the Everest region just as the helicopter round around there giving the winged bird-eye perspective on Mount Everest. The trek guarantees a 360-degree all-encompassing view of several mountains incorporating the most noteworthy mountain, Mount Everest, on the planet.

          Best 3 Days Trek Organization by Nepal Trek

          The trip to Everest base camp was eventful and memorable. The trip was a short trip for 3 days but the experience was astonishing. Our group wanted to explore many places in Nepal but due to our lack of time we were not able to explore for a long time but this 3 day trip to Everest base camp made our wishes come true. During the short period of time, we were able to experience the most alluring Mountain View and Himalayan surroundings that involved high hills, green lush forests, and typical flora and fauna. The local settlement, tea houses, restaurants and cultural experiences with Mountain people were also wonderful ones. All thanks to Nepal Trek adventure. Because of their 3 days' tour package, our tour went miraculous. The price was suitable and the services were splendid i.e. way beyond expectation. We didn't even have to worry about our needs and any kind of facilities at all. Everything was arranged before our arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal. All went well, even best! The overall scenery of the whole three days was breathtaking. The local foods were too good and lip-smacking. Thanks to Nepal Trek adventure for providing friendly and cooperative staff to guide us. Thank you guys for taking care of us throughout the journey! Highly recommended trek and company for trekking in Nepal! Thumbs up!
