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.

Our family of 5 have enjoyed a wonderful holiday with experience the himalayas. The Poon Hill trek was a great experience. Tanka, Raj, Santos and Yadab took care of us. Their knowledge, experience and good company really added to the experience and made the journey possible for a young family. We also did the Chitwan tour, which also exceeded expectations. Very professionally organised and certainly good value. We look forward to our next adventure with experience the himalayas. Thank you very much and keep sharing your amazing country (Nepal) and culture with visitors like us. Nigel, Jane and family from Australia.

This was my first trek, so I didn't really know how to prepare, or what to expect. The support from ETH was efficient before I went and was beyond excellent on the trek itself. Our guide Tanka was considerate, careful and very knowledgeable, so I felt safe and our two porters Kamal and Santos were cheerful and a/pleasure to have along. I can't recommend ETH enough and would definitely use them again.

Adventure. Beauty. Friendship. Challenge. Soul-filling journey. This is the second time I have been with Experience The Himalayas. I met my roomy, Andy, on the Everest Base Camp trek 2 years ago. We both came back together to do the Annapurna Circuit. That says all you need to know. Our guide, Tanka, was also our guide on EBC, and I have to say on all the treks around the globe that I have done over the years, he is the real deal, a cut above. He did make us all drink a lot of rum though. If you've never done a trek like this before, then everything on this one will open your eyes. Through the challenges of circumstances, cold, altitude: you find out stuff about yourself....the rewards are poetry and achievement The people you do all this with plays a very significant role - there isn't a better set of people to do it with, and I wouldn't want to do it with anyone else. I will definitely be back with these guys. As a foot note: thank you Kamal and Santos - you were simply the best porters ever :-)
