The high area of Everest is locally known as the Khumbu region where the main settlements and villages are Lukla, Phakding, Monjo, Namche Bazaar, Khumjung, Khunde, Thame, Thyangboche, Pangboche, and Phortse.

The economy of the Khumbu Sherpa community has traditionally been heavily based on trade and livestock herding, but in the last past decades with the influx and flow of trekkers and mountaineering expeditions, the Sherpa economy at present is increasingly dependent on tourism.

To reach Everest base camp, the main and popular way is flying into Lukla taking a short flight from Kathmandu with awesome views of mountains during 35 minutes flight and then walking into lovely Sherpa farm villages following the glacial Dudh Kosi River, and then entering the world highest Sagarmatha National Park at Monjo village, the park added to the list of World Heritage Sites in 1979, covering an area of 1,148 sq. Kms with rich alpine vegetation include rhododendron-juniper-pines-firs and birch tree lines.

Wild-Life is often sighted during the walk within Sagarmatha National Park like the Himalayan Thar, Musk Deer, and Nepal national bird Danphe / Impheyan pheasant, and snow leopard exists but is rarely seen like the Yeti.

From the park entrance heading higher to reach Namche a great place to enjoy a rest day especially when the Saturday market is on, Namche bazaar with many facilities of nice lodges-hotels-restaurants, bakeries, pubs, cyber cafés, banks, and post-office with superstores and shops.

After the Namche walk is pleasant for a few hours with glorious views of Everest, Amadablam, and other lesser peaks, and then with uphill to reach scenic Thyangboche Monastery with super views surrounded by green woodland, after a nice interesting tour walk continues heading into the wide exposed landscape on leaving the tree lines behind for barren and arid terrain, as the walk leads higher reaching our goal and highlight of the adventure at Everest base camp.

At Everest base camp with ample to marvel at the dramatic scenery of Khumbu Ice Falls and glaciers with towering peaks of Lo-La and Nuptse located on each side of Mt. Everest South Face. After an overwhelming and exciting time, our Everest Base Camp trek concludes with a climb to the rocky Kalapathar hilltop, with views of Everest at a close distance and standing on the highest point of the adventure at 5,545 m high.

I like trekking with Unique Path, the guides of this company many times made my way comfortable and safe. I traveled with them to Lobuche, Mera, Island and other places solo and in the groups with my friends. Unique Path is a reliable partner and I plan to trek with them again in Langtang region this autumn.

I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

Myself and 2 buddies hired Unique Path Trekking to coordinate an EBC trek back in 2014. We couldn't have been more happy with the results...Everything went flawlessly and we had the adventure of a lifetime. Babu and his staff / guides / porters were top-notch and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be reading this.

As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

We were very fortunate to have Unique Path Trekking for our EBC with 3 Himalaya passes expedition, we were so happy/satisfied with Unique Path trekking. Babu ( owner of Unique Path Trekking) is so kind, knowledgeable and mellow personality so does their staff ( all guides and porters ). We had great time during this expedition in terms of lodging/food. We had large group ( ~ 18 ppl ) and believe or not no one had any single complain of food. Their guides and porters are so knowledgeable, smart, humorous made our entire expedition lots of fun. They take care of us with positive attitudes with smiley face in entire trip. I definitely recommend Unique Path Trekking for any expedition in Himalaya ( we're looking forward to go with them in Annapurna expedition in near future ). You will very glad/happy if you choose Unique Path and Trekking.

I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
