Everest Base Camp Location and Fact
Mount Everest (8848m) lies on the border of Nepal and Tibet, the autonomous region of China. The summit of the Mt Everest lies in Nepal while the base of the mountain is in Nepal and Tibet. Nepal side base camp is famous for Everest Base Camp or South Base Camp while Tibet side is called North Base Camp. It is either of two base camp on opposite side of Mount Everest. South Base Camp is in Nepal at an altitude of 5,364 metres (17,598 ft) (28°0′26″N 86°51′34″E), and North Base Camp is in Tibet at 5,150 metres (16,900 ft)(28°8′29″N 86°51′5″E).
South side of the Everest Basecamp is mostly visited by trekkers to EBC and climbers camps for the Everest climbing preparation. The view of Mt Everest is not so good from the base camp, so we climb the Kalapathar hill for the close-up views of Himalayas.
Why Different in Everest Base Camp Trekking Itinerary?
For the Everest BC trekking 65 km on one way is necessary to walk from Lukla. The total length of Everest Base Camp trek is 130km approx. in round. So it takes different time to cross the trekking route for different people. Those who are bounded by time can walk fast and previous experienced trekkers can walk longer time during the day.
On the basis of trekkers time and walking capacity, the trekking length to Everest Base Camp different. Some itineraries with acclimatization days is longer and without are short. So there is no standard trekking itinerary for the Everest Basecamp. Longer days trekking itinerary gives enough time for the acclimatization which is less chance of attitude sickness.
