Everest Base Camp Trek
USD 1,200.00
Overview
What could be more thrilling than following in the footsteps of some of the world’s famous climbers? Let us take you on a classic journey into the beautiful Khumbu region and Sagamartha National Park.
What to Expect
The Everest Base Camp Trek is certainly a challenge, 12 days of walking, high altitudes, rocky tracks and some pretty steep inclines, but what an achievement to say you reached the base camp of the highest mountain in the world, especially as base camp is actually higher than a lot of mountains!

After a breath taking flight to the mountain town of Lukla, your adventure begins. There are a million photo opportunities as you trek amidst the magical Himalayas, with spectacular views of Kwangde, Nuptse, Lhotse, Kangtega, Ama Dablam and Everest to name a few. The bustling Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar and the gateway to the high Himalaya is an impressive sight not to be missed, where the colorful homes and teahouses are strategically perched around the hillside. The approach to Tyangboche is something that will imprint on your mind for years to come as you gaze out to the ornate monastery amidst the most amazing panoramic mountain backdrop you will have ever set your eyes on.

As the altitude increases, the landscape becomes more remote and you cannot help but wonder how the locals survive in such an environment, but that they do, following age-old traditions and living an uncomplicated life, undisturbed by the hustle and bustle that comes with a modern society.

Upon reaching base camp, an inevitable sense of achievement will prevail as you sit amongst some snow-capped giants and rejoice in conquering this famous route. And if that was not enough, we take you to the height of 5545 meters, to the summit of Kala Patthar to witness Everest in all her glory, towering above the other glistening peaks of the Himalayas, giving you memories to last a lifetime.

Yes, it includes a five star hotel the day before you leave on the trek and the day you get back to Kathmandu from the trek. 👍🏻😄
