Everest Base Camp Trek

(17 DAYS, HOTEL, LODGES AND CITIES)

Everest Base Camp Trek is without doubt one of the most famous in the world. It takes you into the heart of the Nepalese Himalaya, with awe-inspiring views of many of the world's highest and most beautiful mountains. This trek climb the famous Everest viewing point of Kala Patar (5,545m), as well as going to the actual site of base camp, below the tumbling Khumbu Icefall. Our itineraries are carefully designed to ensure you have adequate time to acclimatise comfortably, thereby enjoying the trekking experience to the full.

After having good rest in Kathmandu, we fly in a Twin Otter aircraft to the mountain airstrip at Lukla and begin the trek up the Khumbu Valley. We pass through many Sherpa villages, including the famous trading town of Namche Bazar, as well as visiting the monastery at Thyangboche. The trekking is mainly on good trails, apart from the last day up to base camp, which is on moraine (rocky ground). You can expect to trek for 4 to 5 hours each day, but some days will feel harder than others, depending on the altitude gain. This trek is therefore suitable for reasonably fit walkers. We stay in lodges for the whole route and in the spring.
