The best and widest range of routes for reaching Everest Base Camp
All of our treks in the Mount Everest National Park use lodge accommodation throughout. There are lodges all the way up to Gorak Shep, beneath Kala Patar and just a short walk from Everest Basecamp. Owned and run by local Sherpa families, these lodges have heated dining areas that are often attractively decorated with paintings and locally made textiles. Sleeping accommodation is basic but clean in unheated rooms with wooden beds and foam mattress. Whilst some lodges may have twin sharing rooms, in others there may be multi-bed rooms only. You will need a sleeping bag. The lodges have shared washing and toilet facilities and these are sometimes located in a separate building to the main lodge. Note also that some lodges use continental style toilets and may require self-flushing with water buckets. Some lodges offer hot showers (for an additional charge) and battery charging facilities (also extra). Staying at the lodges is a great way to meet fellow hikers and the locals but it should be remembered that this is still a very remote area and facilities can be basic.
