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.

That was the best adventure ever! Even I got sick at the beggining of the hike both guides were very helpful so we all could continue our trip. Without their help that could've end up way different! It's difficult to put it in words but Kumar, Tanka and all of the porters are great people to travel with. Tanka have a wide knowledge about everything you see on your way and Kumar is the best cook you can probably find in Nepal. I hope I'll have another chance to travel with them! Thank you all for an amazing experience! :)

I loved every moments of the trip. Our guide Tanks was an amazing, fun, very knowledge person. He knows a lot about the mountains and safety. We were all in good hands and safe. I highly recommend this company to everyone who wish to experience the Himalayas. The Tea Houses were very nice and we always felt so welcomed such as family.

Really glad that we chose to go with experience the Himalayas. Everything was a very well organised from the start to the finish. They have an extra acclimatization day worked into their itinerary which many other companies don't, something which I benefitted from greatly as I got sick and was able to recover during one of the rest days. Our guide Tanka was absolutely amazing. From what we observed he seem to do a lot more for us than others guides that we saw. His knowledge was second to none and he appeared to know all the best places to stay making sure we got the best rooms where possible. Overall the trip of a lifetime. We're already looking at which trip to do next and would book through experience the Himalayas again in a heartbeat.
