The Arun Valley – Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC Trek) is a remote and rewarding trek to the Everest Base Camp starting in the subtropical low land or 'Tarai Region' of Nepal. The trek crosses the Mahabharat range and enjoys excellent views of Mount Kanchenjunga and the mighty Mount Everest as it enters the very heart of Eastern Nepal.
During The Arun Valley – Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC Trek), as we descend to the Arun River, our interest focuses on the people. Limbus, Rais were the earliest settlers, although now there are also many Chettris, Brahmins and Tibetans, living traditionally in medieval villages. Leaving the valley we have some challenging days as we will be using rarely trodden trails through some of Nepal's most beautiful forests.
The passes offer tremendous views of the Mera Peak and Chamlang standing as tall as 7,319 meters from the sea level. From this spectacular wilderness we enter the Dodh Kosi valley and head north to our final destination. We spend several day acclimatizing amongst the fabulous Khumbu Panoramas before trekking to the glaciers and peaks above base camp with their magnificent morning views of the summit of Mount Everest.
The Arun Valley – Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC Trek) offers a panorama that will live with you for the rest of your life; Mount Amadablam, Mount Taweche, Mount Pumori, Mount Nuptse, Mount Lothse and the mighty Mount Everest will all be within your sight and the view leaves most of the trekkers speechless for hours.
