The Everest Base Camp trek on the south side is one of the most popular trekking routes in the Himalayas and about 40,000 people per year make the trek there from Lukla airport.Trekkers usually fly from Kathmandu to Lukla to save time and energy before beginning the trek to this base camp.
From Lukla, climbers trek upward to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, 3,440 metres (11,290 ft), following the valley of the Dudh Kosi river. It takes about two days to reach the village, which is a central hub of the area. Typically at this point, climbers allow a day of rest for acclimatization. They then trek another two days to Dingboche, 4,260 metres (13,980 ft) before resting for another day for further acclimatization.
