Photographic Journey to Everest Base Camp

The Everest Base Camp trek was one of the most “other-worldly” experiences we’ve had anywhere in the world! And no matter how hard we try to put everything into words, it doesn’t quite do this place justice. So we hope these photos do the trick and make you feel as if you’re on the journey with us!

To find out more about our journey to EBC or if you want to know how to get there yourself, check out our Ultimate Guide to Trekking Everest Base Camp.

Tip: If you’re curious how we got these photos, we used a lot (if not all) of our 32 Easy & Creative Travel Photography Tips to make these shots happen. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, these tips will help you take incredible pictures!

    Hey guys, You captured some epic pics from your EBC Trek. I really like the (Yak attack). I did the Three Passes Trek last year and it really was one of the best hiking experiences of my life. Really enjoying your content!

    Hey Guys, thanks for the amazing information, this will make my preparation for the EBC way easier.
    If I can ask, where is the best place along the way with a view of the Everest?? I will like to take some photos at sunset or sunrise and will like to plan accordingly..

    Thank you =)

      Hey Rod, there are many place to view Everest along the way. Just outside of Namche Bazaar there is the Sherpa Culture Museum and there is a great view of Everest from there. I believe you can see it also from Tengboche. Of course, one of the most famous spots is on Kala Patthar, up near Gorek Shep. Hope this helps.
