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 trekking 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.

Whilst it was dissapointing that so many of the party were sick (this has to be accepted when in this art of the world) it still does not take away from what was an incredible experience, the whole trip was made all the more special by the incredible guides Tunka & Rinji, these guys were outstanding......knowledgable, helpful, considerate, and above all great fun to be around, and despite the sickness that so many of the group suffered these guys held the team together and were a credit to the company, absolute gentleman. The pace was good and although it was tough at times this is what people expect from an expedition like this......to summarise, tough but loved it !! :-)

Excellent trip overall - very knowledgable guides and spectacular scenary. The accommodation was basic, as expected, however the poor food quality and numerous bouts of vomitting was not as welcome. I was also not expecting to be told that I had to eat at each tea-house, and not elsewhere. I understand that this was to save Experience the Himalayas money on the accommodation however this was not made clear in the original information. There was also poor communication on the facebook group with regard to what the weather conditions were likely to be like further up the trail, which would have aided clothing preparations. A great trip, all in all, though.

Overall, a fascinating and wonderful trip which will last long in the memory. i was also fortunate enough to be in a very good group of people with excellent, patient and knowledgeable guides which made the trip. People thinking about doing this trip should do it, but need to be aware that it is a very difficult trip not ust because of the hiking which is hard but they also need to be able to cope with a combination of basic accommodation, poor food and non existent hygiene combined with altitude problems. if you can overcome the abov challenges then you will enjoy a great trip with a good company who were very organised tthroughout
