Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek Overview

Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek combines spirituality with a lifetime adventure trekking in Nepal the world-famous Everest region. This trek perfectly fits for those who desire to learn and practice yoga in the Himalayas. On the other hand, it gives thrilling adventure on the lap of the highest mountain on earth.

The ultimate aim of this trek is to reach Everest Base Camp located at an astounding altitude of 5364 m. Everest base camp offers magnificent views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Cho Oyo (8,188 m) and many more.

The Everest yoga trekking trail lies within Sagarmatha National Park, a World Heritage Site. It is home to such endangered species as snow leopard, Himalayan black bear, and mountain goats.

The vegetation on the lower elevation ranges from pine and birch, which gives way to alpine vegetation of moss and lichens above 4000 m. Time and again, you have glimpses of birds and animals while traversing to and for.

In addition, the Everest Region trek is the Home of the Sherpas, synonymous with mountaineering in the world. You get to know about their lifestyle, culture, and tradition very closely during the Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek.

You explore the largest and the oldest monasteries including many chortens and mane walls. Tengboche Monastery is the largest while Pangboche Monastery is the oldest of the Khumbu region trek.

Similarly, you get to visit the highest-altitude hotel in the world, Everest View Hotel. Having breakfast or lunch while witnessing Mt Everest and other peaks is the most invaluable experience one rarely gets in a lifetime!

Everest Yoga Trekking Itinerary

The Everest Base Camp Yoga trek itinerary does not much differ from the regular Everest Base Camp trek. It ranges from 7 days to many more days depending upon your vacation and zeal to face the challenge in the Himalayas.

If you love doing Yoga on the bank of the high-altitude glacial lakes, the Gokyo Lakes trek is more suitable. Likewise, you can also combine the Everest Three High Passes trek with this package as well. Jiri Everest Base Camp Trek is another variant that lets you walk along with the footprints of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.

The monasteries of Khumbu region are the best place to practice Yoga for life experiences. There are ancient monasteries including Tengboche Monastery, Pangboche Monastery, and Khumjung Monastery. Doing Yoga in this tranquil shrine of Buddha, the Messenger of Peace in the World gives you a unique experience!

If you love doing Yoga sitting in front of the Great Himalayas including the world’s highest, Mt. Everest, you can extend the Everest Yoga trek itinerary.

Hence, we suggest you be sure about your vacation, budget, and adventure-loving nature first. Then, Nepal Trekking Routes is always there for you to provide detailed information.

Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek Cost

The Everest Yoga Trek cost is a little different from the EBC trek. First, the duration you choose determines the cost. It means, if you want to extend this trek, you have to invest more budgets while a short Nepal trekking package cost is quite low.

Next, the services of food and accommodation you want to play a vital role in calculating the overall cost. Everest Base Camp Yoga trek permit cost also influences the whole cost of this trek.

What differs from the regular Everest Base Camp trek cost is that you should pay for the Yoga Guru on this trip. Besides, the size of your group also has some impacts on the cost i.e. larger the group, the lower the individual cost!

Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek Route or Map

Everest Base Camp Yoga trek routes begin from Lukla, the gateway to Everest region trekking. You fly from Kathmandu to Lukla and then, formally begin the trek up to Phakding. Your first Yoga session in the Everest region begins right here.

Then, you move towards Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep, Everest Base Camp (5,364 m) and Kalapatthar (5,550 m) respectively. Our Everest Base Camp Yoga trek itinerary has kept rest days at Namche Bazar and Dingboche.

You enjoy the 360-degree panorama of Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188 m), Mt. Pumori, Mt. Ama Dablam and many more from Kalapatthar. Then, you trek down to Periche, Namche, and Lukla during the retreat journey. Finally, you fly back from Lukla to Kathmandu having an aerial view of the Great Himalayas and lush valleys.

What are the Everest Yoga Trek Difficulty?

The regular sessions of Yoga helps to minimize the Everest Base Camp Yoga trek difficulty level. Yes, the trails are rugged, steep and high altitude, but Yoga helps you keep a balance between your physical and mental aspects. Consequently, you can easily cover them and defeat altitude sickness.

Different postures heal your muscle aches and cramps so that you won’t have any problems in ascent and descent. Meditation helps have control over your psychological aspects on the other hand.

The Yoga Guru and the professional Nepal trekking guide provided by our trekking agency also help you keep the difficulty far away from you. In this way, you can easily beat the Everest Base Camp Yoga trek difficulty with us.

Why Everest Yoga Trek?

Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek is much more than a regular Everest Base Camp Trek. Apart from the actual trek, you will enjoy yoga, spa, and massage in Dingboche and Namche. Small group meditation will be organized by a yoga mentor as part of the acclimatization exercise.

The trek is an endurance test as well as a perfect way to build up one’s physical and mental well-being. You know mental strength and concentration are equally important to complete trekking in the Himalayas successfully.

Each day of the Everest Yoga trek begins and ends with some of the most effective Yoga Postures (Asanas). In the morning before beginning high-altitude trekking in Nepal, you practice different Aasanaas, Meditation, and Pranayama. In the evening, you practice some postures that help you recover from travel fatigue.

Practicing such postures not only develops your concentration power and patience but also heals any physical pain. Walking uphill and downhill through the rugged trail makes your muscles ache or sometimes cramp as well.

Through the different postures practiced before and after Everest Yoga trek heals all of them. As a result, you are better prepared for the next day’s trip. Combining Yoga with the Everest Base Camp trek makes you feel as if you are not traveling through the high-altitude trekking in Nepal.

The tips you get during the Everest Yoga trek will benefit you throughout life. The Yoga Guru gives you life-changing Yoga techniques that you can practice post-Nepal trekking as well.

Food and Accommodation during the Everest Yoga Trek

Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek is entirely a tea house trekking in Nepal.  It means you don’t have to worry about the provision of food and accommodation during the trip. Everest Base Camp Trek is renowned for standard hotels and lodges providing quality food and accommodation services.

They provide your food items from the typical Sherpa cuisines to the typical Nepali Dal Bhat to continental and Chinese dishes as well. You have freedom of choice from the menu displaying a large variety of food as per your appetite. I don’t think the cost matters more than your luxury tour!
