Everest Base Camp Trek is a famous challenging trek in Khumbu, Nepal. Famous for its spectacular mountain peaks and the loyalty and friendliness of its inhabitants (the Sherpas), the Everest region (Khumbu) is one of the most popular destinations for tourists in Nepal.
It is a lifetime opportunity to see the breath-taking scenery and be in the lap of the world’s highest peak Mt. Everest 8848m.
This classic trek gives you a once in a lifetime chance to get right up close to Everest. It is a tough trek that needs some preparation, but immensely rewarding. The journey starts in Kathmandu, where we spend a day touring this incredible city with the evening free to explore at leisure.
The next morning we catch an early flight to Lukla to begin our two week journey trekking through the mountains. We pace the itinerary sensibly with acclimatization days en-route in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche. As we climb up through the mountains our days will be rewarded with incredible views of Everest and nights are spent in comfortable trekking lodges dotted along the way.
We make the final push up the Khumbu glacier to our target of Everest Base Camp, We’ll also take a short trek up to Kala Patthar for the best view of Mount Everest and Lhotse, weather permitting. We then begin our decent winding our way back down the mountains before flying back to Kathmandu
Once back in Kathmandu, we have a free day where you’ll be able to take one of the many optional tours we offer including visits to the nearby towns or Patan and Bhaktapur as well as a rafting trip on the Bhote Khosi river. The evening is free for a final meal in Kathmandu.
