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 acclimitisation days, 1 day more than 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 acclimitise 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 acclimitisation 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.

My experience of the Poon Hill Trek & Jungle Safari organised by Experience the Himalayas was simply outstanding in every possible way. I found the organisation to be faultless and the effort to please never ending, which in turn made my trip something I will remember forever. Our guide Raj spoke in perfect English, had a wonderful sense of humour and an incredible depth of understanding about the Himalayas in general. In the rare pauses between our laughter, he was able to provide us with answers to all of our questions and to questions we had not even considered. I would thoroughly recommend this organisation to anyone wanting a smooth, enjoyable and most of all, memorable trek in the Himalayas. I for one will certainly be using them again.

Experience the Himalayas absolutely lives up to its name. The Treck to EBC proved a jaw dropping experience. The guide quite excellent - informative, experienced and helpful. The Treck was challenging, but EtH ensures through steady acclimatisation that everyone will reach their goal. In sum, this has been a fantastic journey through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, in an unique country amongst wonderful people. From begining to end EtH has been a proactive, pragmatic and helpful company - I can't recommend this adventure or Experience the Himalayas strongly enough.

Overall this was a fantastic experience and a truly amazing trip. I had great and fast communication from Experience the Himalayas from the start, mainly by email. They were also very accomodating when a closure of Kathmandu airport meant that we arrived in Kathmandu five days behind schedule. The trip was rescheduled accordingly and both the contact in Kathmandu and our guide for the trek made sure that we still got to experience the full trek despite our delays. Our guide was extremely knowledgable of the whole trail and the many surrounding mountains and villages. His care and concern for us was also very good ensuring that any early signs of altitude sickness were caught and addressed. His understanding of the optimum time to leave each tea house each morning and also reading of the changing weather was also invaluable. I`ve been extremely happy overall with Experience the Himalayas.

This was our first time to Nepal and our first time on a trek. Experience the Himalayas were excellent from start to finish. Given issues at Katmandu airport our flights had to change at the last minute and David and Bijay were very helpful and accommodating to our last minute changes. On arrival we were met at the airport and taken to the hotel where we were made to feel very welcome. The whole itinerary was explained to us and it made us very relaxed about the trip and week ahead. We did the Poon Hill trek and it was just the two of us with our guide and porter. Our guide, Raj, was brilliant. He made our trip the fantastic experience that it was. Every evening he would explain exactly what the plan was for the next day. He was attentive and helpful from start to finish. Given this was our first time in the Himalayas, we had lots of questions throughout the trek and he was able to answer all of them thoroughly. Raj and our porter, Chhabi, made us laugh none stop throughout the whole trip. They were always asking us if were were enjoying it and if there was anything else we want.We were incredibly lucky to have both of them as it was a perfect match for us. The trek itself was great and we would highly reccommend it. The views from Poon Hill were stunning and the walking itself was great fun. All of the accommodation that we stayed in was very pleasant. After such a great experience we would both love to go on another trip like this and would have no reservations at all about doing this via Experience the Himalayas again. If you are looking to go to the Himalayas then use this company, they were great.
