For an epic adventure, take on the world's tallest mountain and trek to Everest Base Camp. You will experience mind-blowing Himalayan views of snow-capped mountains and huge glaciers, the rich and vibrant Sherpa culture, and stay in tea houses in remote mountain villages. This is the most famous and well-known trek in the world.
A small airplane will fly us from Kathmandu to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest Region. On board we will have an excellent view of Mount Everest and the Himalayas. Out of the 18 days of the trip we will spend 14 days in the mountains trekking, which includes 3 acclimatisation days where we will sleep at the same teahouse and altitude as the previous night. During the acclimatisation days, you have the option of exploring remote villages, putting your feet up and relaxing, or doing a side trek for the day in the surrounding mountain trails.
This trek is physically demanding due to the altitude. Trekkers who know they struggle with high altitudes should consider the Everest Base Camp Longer Acclimatisation Trek. This trek is 7 days longer and the altitude increases more gradually.
We will stay in hotels in Kathmandu and tea houses in the mountains. Due to the altitude, the nights can be cold; however, there is nothing more refreshing after a hard day's trekking than sitting around the roaring fires in the teahouses enjoying a warm drink in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Mount Everest Region is the most well known region and second most popular trekking destination in Nepal. When trekking to Mountain Everest, the tallest and most famous mountain in the world, you will be following in the footsteps of famous mountaineers on their quest to conquer the highest peak on earth. The locals refer to Mount Everest as "The Goddess Mother of the World", a reflection of the sheer size, beauty, and power of this mammoth mountain.
The Mount Everest region is largely composed of rugged terrain and awe-inspiring views of the dramatic mountain range, Nepal's largest glaciers, ice falls, high altitude lakes, and ancient monasteries. There is an abundance of teahouses with good facilities (you will not usually walk more than an hour without passing one) as well as hospitable Sherpa communities. Here you can experience the rich culture and way of life of elite mountaineers and Mount Everest experts.
Contrary to popular expectations, there is no view of Mount Everest from Everest Base Camp. The spectacular views are actually seen from Kala Pattar. First we will trek to Everest Base Camp to see the tents of mountaineers preparing for their ascent, and then we will trek to Kala Pattar for the highlight of your trek.
