Everest Base Camp Trek can be done in different ways means time frame of trekkers. It is possible short timer and long timer. This trek starts from Lukla airport of Khumbu Region. This trek can complete minimum 9 days or 12 days or 16 days. If you are strong and professional trekker it can complete in 9 or 10 days. For middle class walker it is 12 days trek and If you are a bit weak to walk or older one, it is 16 days trek. It is best to walk slowly and take rest and feel relax on walking. Morning time start walking earlier and evening lately stop at Hotel or lodge. It is good for slow walker and take time to walk, taking picture and look around with relax, in this condition, they will have enough time to learn about many things in detail. Those who just look a sight and walk faster, then, it means just mission to get to Everest Base Camp and sighting Mount Everest.
But In my view, it is best to take time and learn in detail about Himalaya, culture, tradition, lifestyle and community of Everest Region, then it gives exact meaning of trek and can know the trail situation and practice up and down. This trekking route is mainly experience of Sherpa culture and tradition, except Sherpa, Rai, Tamang also over there.
This is best trekking trail in the world. It has many trekking routes to experience the Himalaya and lake with peaks to climb. So trekker and climber can have a lot opportunity to trekking and climbing both in same route and also Expedition like as Mount Everest, Aba Dablam, Gokyo Ri and for the Peaks are Mera Peak, Lobuche Peak and Island Peak etc.
It has trekking route like as Everest View Trek, Gokyo Lake Trek, Everest Base Camp Trek, 3 high passes trek and Khumjung Village Trek. Also there are other trekking regions in Nepal as Annapurna Region trek which has Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, Khoprang Trek, Mardi Himal Trek, Upper Mustang Trek and Jomsom Trek.
