To be proximity close to great mountain the Mt. Everest is a dream of all mountain and nature lovers of the world. To see once the great Mountain "top of the world" The Mount Everest standing in front of one is the great feeling that is not possible to describe in words. 

Everest Base Camp trek begins with an "eye opening" flight to Lukla at 2800 meters and passes through the picturesque Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar to Gorakshep culminating in the "ascent" of Kala Pattar (5500 m) from where classic views of Everest and its surrounding peaks are available. Most of the trek is spent above altitudes of 3000 meters in the Khumbu and Imja valleys.

Everest Base Camp 1

Is it better to go in spring or fall and what is the weather like each season?

The spring season starts cold and gets warmer whereas fall is the opposite. Both can see significant snow at any time but more so in the fall. In general the skies are more clear into the early fall thus providing better views of Everest and other mountains. It is common to experience rain, sometimes very heavy, lower down valley between Lukla and Namache in both seasons.

Is a trek dangerous?

Yes and no. Yes; because altitude can kill people so care must be take to acclimatize properly. No; from the lack of so-called "objective" danger such as rock fall or crevasses normally associated with climbing. However, people have been seriously injured by yaks who inadvertently bump them off the trail and down a steep hillside. So always be on the uphill side when a yak passes by.

Do we have access of Bank and ATM services during our Everest Base Camp Trek?

Yes, you will have facilities like bank and ATM service in Namche Bazar and Lukla. In both the mentioned places there are banks and ATM service.
