The calming melody of the Dudh Koshi River will be there to accompany your journey as you travel with mules and other hikers. Phakding is the final stop before bed.

You'll be traveling to Namche Bazar, also known as the "capital of the Sherpas," today. After breakfast, take the trek through the towns of Zamphute and Tok Tok to see the morning sunlight beams sparkling Thamserku Peak. The trek crosses many suspension bridges, including the well-known Hillary Suspension Bridge, before passing the Dudh Koshi, a milky glacial river that flows up to Monjo. The route becomes quite difficult to climb uphill toward Jorsalle village as you enter the national park. But after a time, the tough trail rewards you with a magnificent view of Kusum Kanguru, Thamserku, Everest, and Nuptse.


After a short break, continuing on a tough route upward towards Namche Bazaar until you reach an incredible high bridge that crosses the Dudhkoshi River valley. Just before this bridge, the Dudhkoshi River meets its branch, the Bhote Koshi.

Unforgettable Once In A Lifetime Experience To EBC Led By Arjun & 3 Amazing Porters

Our journey started in 3 different cities in Malaysia, 6 travellers in all - Myself and my good friend Ray started out from Johor Bahru, Suk(the only female in our group) & Ricgen's journey started from Mallaca, the 4 of us met with See and Su in their home town of Kuala Lumpur, (KL) Malaysia. 6 of us met in KL and departed from KL international airport for Kathmandu Nepal. where Arjun Dhakal met us at the airport and we transferred to our hotel and finalised all details for the EBC trek. The next day we flew out to Lukla and this is where the real adventure began. The actual trip is a story for another time all I will say is that this adventure was absolutely amazing in fact so amazing that I'm contemplating doing ABC with Arjun next year sometime. Arjun and his team were very professional, his personable character allows for a very relaxed but very organised approach to everything during our trip. The EBC adventure was one of the most amazing adventures I have ever experienced I would add that this trip rates equal to The Kokoda trek I completed in Papua Nuigini. I want to express my gratitude to Arjun Dhakal and his team at Bharal adventures you were amazing and I would recommend this team to anyone interested in doing EBC Kind Regards & friends for life Gavin Page

Everest Base Camp Hike 26/11 – 6/12

Going to the Everest Base Camp was once an impossible dream to achieve. With Bharal Edventure, the impossible dream comes to a reality. Mr Suraj, our guides, Ganesh and friends who made it possible for me to reach the EBC. I would not be able to go through the tough journey with extreme environments without their help and encouragement. Thank you very much for the hospitality given by Bharal Adventure especially Mr Suraj and Mr Arjun. Thank you so much for making this once impossible dream become possible. This is truly the most valuable experience I ever have.

Everest Base Camp Trek Dec- 24 – Jan 05 2019

Da jeg rejste alene, var det vigtigt for mig, at få afklaret alle spørgsmål. Arjun var meget behlælpelig og tålmodig med at besvare alle mine spørgsmål inden trekket. Selve turen var en super oplevelse. Deepak var vores guide. Han er en meget sympatisk, sjov og hjælpsom ung mand, der hele turen havde god føling med, hvordan det gik undervejs. Vi havde mange gode snakke om hvordan livet er i Nepal, for tidligere generationer op til i dag. Det var en fantastisk oplevelse. Tak for det :-)

Atemberaubend Und Immer Wieder Schn

Everest view Trek mit schnen Aussichten und einem Guide, der auf alles achtet. Ich crate immer wieder in Nepal , nur habe ich mich in solche Hhen noch nie getraut. Es braucht schon etwas Vorbereitung , denn man muss fit sein fr thus ein Vorhaben. Schon allein der Flug nach Lukla ist ein Abenteuer fr sich . Man sieht Berge und Menschen , die mit wenigen Worten nicht zu beschreiben sind . Mit Suman act ich auf einen wunderschnen Weg unterwegs .Jedes mal, wenn er merkte, dass ich an meine Grenzen gekommen box, wurde erst mal eine kleine Rast eingelegt, in view of that dass ich mich immer wohl und gut aufgehoben gefhlt habe. So konnte ich den ganzen Weg geniessen. Vor allem suit ich sehr fasziniert, wie die Menschen da oben leben und wie herzlich sie doch sind. Der Weg alleine, ist mit all seinen Aussichten und seiner Geschichte , diese Reise wert. Noch einmal vielen Dank fr die liebe Beratung und einen Freund, der mir immer zur Seite gestanden hat.

In good hands!

I write this review on behalf of my 73 year old mom who recently completed an EBC trek with Bharal. Arjun saw to every detail and took exceptional care of my mom and her friends. Arjun was patient, kind and thoughtful and made the trek a truly memorable one for my mom. She highly recommends Arjun and Bharal to anyone who's up for adventure in Nepal!
