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.

Fantastic, Unbelievable, incredible and everything else you can come up with. I`m from Arizona, and the girls are from Chicago, we expected a lot of service and help, well we got it. So, the entire experience eas great from the first call to Experience The Himalayas. David Cassidy, called me right back and fielded all my questions. The trek operator Bijay Neupane, who was very attentive with the girls and I. We landed in Kathmandu at all hours in the night and Bijay was there to collected us and take us back to the hotel. We had dinner the next night to complete our trek orientation. Bijay and our guide Kumar Gautam who in my opinion is the very best of guides, both worked very well together to bring us the very best private trekking experience possible, I know we were not easy but, I wanted this trek to be focused on the girls being able to have the very best trip. Kumar picked up on that and was an absolutely enjoyable man. I wanted to make his laugh my ring tone. Our guide Kumar was most excellent in every aspect, from spotting wild life to all the history of the region from Everest to Buddhism. I felt like Kumar was famous he was known all up and down the trail. He got us on the plain to Lukla and to base camp and Kala Plattar and back. He served us every night and made sure we were comfortable. We played a lot of cards. I found that we shared the exact same upper end Tea Houses that the other bigger outfits were using. I never lost a thing Kumar was very good that we collected all our items, I would have lost something without him. Why anyone would pay the price of the big outfits is beyond me, you don’t have to pace your hike to a crowd of other trekkers that you will meet anyway in the tea house every night. I seriously think we found the very best trekking company Nepal has to offer in Experience The Himalayas. Bijay , Kumar and the rest of the crew were very professional, nothing was left to questions we will be back to trek the Annapurna. This is the time to go everything is wide open and the US $ has a good exchange rate at $104, Nepal desperately needs every bit of money that they can get and this is a good way to give it. My hats off to Experience The Himalayas for a trip of a life time. Oh one more thing don’t go to Nepal without spending several days in Kathmandu.

Bijay and our guide Kumar Gautam who was the best, worked very well together to give us the very best private trek we could ask for. We grew very fond of Kumar and his superb knowledge of the region I know more about Buddhism and Hinduism faiths now then I ever did. I felt like Kumar was a famous guy he knew the teahouse house owners and we were in the same tea houses that the big western out fits were using. Why any one would go with a western company I don't know, so much more expensive for what you get. The Girls and I wanted a local guide and we got the best. Nepal needs our funding right now and using a local guide is the best way to go. I recommend this adventure to anyone. Hats off to Experience The Himalayas thank you for a trip of a life time. Oh one more thing stay a couple of days in Kathmandu after the trek you will not regret it.

Hello, I'm not very experienced with writing reviews but I thought I will give it a try as I feel really happy and grateful having had the most amazing time while on holiday in Nepal and India. This great experience would of not been possible without great assistance from Experience The Himalayas and their wonderful employees Bijay Neupane and Tanka Gautam who was my guide up The Everest Base Camp. They went far and beyond any expectations I've had about this trip, nothing was a problem and things were organized precisely to the last smallest detail, I was impressed. Special thank you definitely goes to Tanka as he was my great companion and a very professional guide for over 2 weeks and I felt like I could not of been looked after any better! He was attentive, helpful, caring and most of all absolutely fantastic company on what were sometimes long trekking days. You could not of asked for more, it was all there. Thank you. Bijay organized absolutely everything, there was no problems whatsoever, from a pick up from the airport through feeding me this first cup of coffee after 25 hours journey to checking up on me while I was away to make sure all goes according to the plan and just being there whenever I needed any assistance. Great customer skills! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone, I had a great time and if I could, I would of done it all over again! Thank you.
