Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek because who wouldn’t want to live the spiritual experience of yoga sessions in the Everest region? The Everest Base Camp trek in itself is a glorious experience, adding daily yoga session makes the experience almost enlightening. Adventure Club Trek offers Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek-16 Days Retreat in the company of an accomplished and experienced Yoga Guru. The first day of the trek is scheduled for your arrival in Kathmandu. The next day, we take a sightseeing tour of Kathmandu and organize a pre-trip meeting. The sightseeing gives you a better understanding of Nepalese culture.
Our Everest Base Camp Yoga trek officially starts on the 3rd day with an early morning flight to Tenzing Hillary airport in Lukla. The more or less 35 minute-long flight on a twin otter plane is scenic beyond words; you are flying above some of the world’s highest mountains after all.
We start every day of the trek with a relaxing and healing yoga session with our Guru.
Our first yoga session with Mt. Everest in view will be at Namche Bazaar, the hub of Khumbu region. So we’ll make that two sessions as we will be acclimatizing at Namche Bazaar. The trek to Everest Base Camp is magnificent. The views of numerous mountains over 8,000m, Sherpa culture, customs and traditions, sightings of endangered animals like the snow leopard, hospitable locals, stunning landscape and the list goes on, make this trek one of the absolute best in the world.
But, what makes Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek so unique is that it is a healing experience apart from being an adventure. Each day is more scenic than the other and thus makes for a beautiful yoga session setting. A yoga session in Tengboche with the Tengboche Monastery and Mt. AmaDablam in view is soul uplifting kind of experience. Our next stop after Tengboche is Dingboche. Since we would now be a well-above 4,000m mark, we will acclimatize in Dingboche. That means morning yoga session with incredible mountains views, including of Mt. Everest!
We set foot on Everest Base Camp at 5,364m on the 10th Day of the trek (8th day of actual walking). Due to the altitude, we might not be able to do a complete yoga set at Everest Base Camp, but you can still strike a few poses.
Enjoy the views of Mt. Nuptse (7,861m), Mt. Pumori (7,161m) and Khumbutse (6,636m) among a plethora of other mountains. You can also closely observe the massive Khumbu icefall. However, you cannot see Mt. Everest from its base camp as it is too huge with a flat top to be seen from its foot. For crystal clear and close views of Mt. Everest and other mountains like Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Yu among others in the Khumbu region, we trek to Kala Patthar. Also, for some exclusive yoga session setting, of course!
Kala Patthar is a black rock ridge and one of the two best vantage points in the Khumbu region, the other one being Gokyo Ri. Once we summit Kala Patthar, we descend to Pheriche. From Pheriche, we climb down to Namche Bazar the next day and from Namche to Lukla the day after. We take a flight from Lukla to Kathmandu marking the end of this amazing
