Everest Base Camp Trek

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, huge glaciers, the rich and vibrant Sherpa culture and you'll stay in tea houses in remote mountain villages. This is the most famous and well-known trek in the world!

 

When trekking to Mount Everest 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.

 

A small airplane will fly you from Kathmandu to Lukla, the magical gateway to the Everest Region. On board you'll have dramatic views of Mount Everest and the Himalayas. Then the real adventure begins as you will spend the next 14 days trekking in the Everest National Park. Our expert Sherpa porters will carry your rucksack the entire journey allowing you to take in the breathtaking scenery. The basic yet charming tea houses, where you will spend your nights, are warmed by toasty fires and you will enjoy hot meals and drink, western toilets and hot water showers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3 Acclimitisation Days When trekking to Everest Base Camp

Our itinerary includes 3 acclimatisation days, 1 day more than what is included in standard itineraries, which means that almost everyone makes it Everest Base Camp. You will stay in the same mountain teahouse and at the same altitude for 2 consecutive nights allowing you to acclimatise well. During your acclimatisation days, there are side trails to trek and places to visit, such as monasteries and villages. Many trekkers may just want to relax, rest and build up their energy for the days to come.

 

Taking into account the 3 acclimatisation days, only 11 of the 14 days are spent trekking (seven on the way up and four on the way down). The uphill trekking will be difficult, but the return journey becomes progressively easier as you descend and the air becomes more oxygen-rich.

 

Due to the high altitude, the nights can be cold; however there is nothing more refreshing after a hard day's trek than sitting around the roaring fires in the teahouses enjoying a warm drink in a relaxed atmosphere.

 

 

 

 

 

Mount Everest Region

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.

"Thorough paperwork helped us prepare. An excellent guide in Kumar, who really couldn't do anymore to keep us safe and well looked after in every aspect. The 3 acclimitisation days will have no doubt made a difference for our success. It would be worth updating the current paperwork to up the recommended daily money allowance. You might also look at whether the trip down could be done over 4 days. Well done team, highly recommended. "

"Experience the Himalayas was an exceptional trip, from start to finish. They are truly caring and supportive. The company went over and above expectations to tailor a trek the perfectly suited my request and needs. They then were meticulous with the advice and help given regarding kit and physical safety. The result was a three week trek, that despite being the hardest physical endurance of my life (with the cumulation of altitude, cold and physical fitness) it was also hands down also the best of my life!! \r\n\r\nI am soo grateful for you knowledge, kindness and friendship. I would recommend this company to everyone and anyone. You are dealing with some serious risks at these altitudes (I spent about ten days trekking over 5000m) and temperatures (I trekked over Christmas and New Year - the coldest but arguably also the clearest, quietest and best time to trek the Everest Region). It is worth setting-up in advance and choosing a company you can trust and rely on. Huge thanks to the whole team including the Manager Bijay, my guide Kumar and Co-owner David!\r\n\r\nI would also recommend doing Everest Base Camp and the 3 high passes in December - to anyone thinking about choosing a 16-20 day trek of a lifetime!"
