About Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek

Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek is an awe-inspiring nature walk that leads you to your inner being. Trekkers feel stress-free while on this trek as the natural beauty of the site awakens your oppressed joy one after another. The trek binds you with scenic beauty so strongly that playfulness within you surfaces gradually.

Regulus-designed Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek is based on Zen techniques of meditation. Zen is one of the Buddhist sects that believe that meditation is happening every time but you lack awareness due to which realization becomes almost impossible. Similarly, this trek also tries to aware you of all possible ways so that your every action may come out consciously.  The trek will unfold the positivity in you. When the beauty of nature superimposes with your consciousness then you realize that meditation is happening because at this point you are carefree leaving everything to supreme consciousness. For the first time in life, you feel that meditation is not something that is done but is such a thing that just happens!

The trail to base camp itself is meditative. The first glance of Lukla will make room in your heart because the surrounding is so beautiful that you like to spend the rest of your life in this place. The breeze in this part of the world gives the real fragrance of Mount Everest. Everything is fresh and while breathing you start becoming fresh cleansing your negativity gradually. On the way to Phakding from Lukla, you witness several monasteries. The prayer flags, praying wheels and the chortens will touch your spirit. Similarly, the monastery in Tengboche is truly beautiful. It is the biggest monastery in the Khumbu Region built more than 100 years ago.

Here you get an opportunity to spend some time with the Lama. You can learn meditation techniques from him. People of this region are benefited from him and his ancestors in the past days. Here you learn that the easiness of life lies at the center of hardness.  

By the end of Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek, you become natural and this will unfold the petals of your energy which will further drive you towards your spirit. This is the crux of Everest Base Camp Yoga Trekking.

                                  3. How long does it take to reach the EBC?

                                  The total Everest Base Camp Trek Distance is 62 Kilometers or 38.58 miles. It will take 7 to 8 days to reach Everest Base Camp (EBC) and 3-4 days to return to Lukla. Each day you will be walking less than 8-10 Kilometers, the high your trek, your speed of walking will get slower. Normally, the trek to EBC is slower because of the high altitude and possibility of AMS; you will need to adjust to the new altitudes. It is suggested to have some spare days in Kathmandu and start the trek right after the day of your arrival because of flight cancellations due to unfavorable weather conditions.

                                  It is wise to follow a 12-Day standard EBC Trekking itinerary (To and From Lukla) to avoid AMS and have a smooth trekking experience.

                                  If summiting is the main concern, then the months of March to May and Mid of September to November would be nice, but we can expect pleasant weather until the end of December due to global warming. It is then that the weather is sunny and clear with dry hiking paths.

                                  On the other hand, if greenery and lush flora are what excites you, monsoon, or the months of June, July and August is your time. Be warned though that the trails are slippery with sludge and most dangerously, infested with leeches.

                                  The pure white beauty of a snowy mountain mesmerizes one and all. But this magnificence comes at a heavy cost. Trekking to the Everest Base Camp in a harsh winter with sub-zero temperatures and a high possibility of blizzards is an extremely difficult task. But if you do decide to undertake the journey for snow, then plan it during November, December, and January.

                                  Regulus Nepal suggests that since this is a high-altitude trek spring (March to May) Autumn (September to November) and as well as December is definitely the ideal time to complete this trek successfully and smoothly.

                                  Trekkers going to Everest Base Camp need two documents for the trip. The first is the TIMS (Trekkers Information Management System) card and the other is the permit for the Everest region. Both are issued by the Government with regards to Trekking Agencies.

                                  Summer/Spring will need a range of clothes like light woolens, heavy woolens, woolen caps/ beanies, hiking tops/t-shirts, hiking shorts/leggings, and a sunhat to shield yourself from the sun.
