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.

We had a wonderful time in Nepal with Experience the Himalayas. We couldn't have asked to be looked after any better by our Guides - they were absolutely fantastic and looked after us so well during our Poon Hill trek. The walking and views were amazing and going through all the villages meant we met and chatted with the locals (particularly the children) and for me, the people made the trip. They were so colourful, happy, friendly and trusting. The Nepalese are amazing people with so much to be proud of. Overall a wonderful experience and a great trip. Gaynor Jayne, UK

Review EBC Trip March 2014 I want to thank the whole team from ‘Experience the Himalayas’ for making my trek experience enjoyable, safe and memorable. The trip notes were very useful and informative, followed by the initial welcome meeting at the Nirvana Hotel, Kathmandu. Bijay was great at making us feel comfortable and solving any last minute issues or needs. The trekking guides Tanka and Rinji were a great team, complimenting each other. They made the tough times more bearable and even fun. They were like personal ‘bodyguards’. Tanka is especially very customer orientated and took care of all the special requests to maintain a good harmony within the group. I personally want to thank all the team, including fellow trekkers for making it possible for me to complete the trek and have this wonderful lifetime experience. Vinod Sabherwal

Our trekking guide, Youssef was brilliant. There is nothing about his work that can be faulted, he was very polite, patient, friendly and we felt completely safe with him. Also the Muleteer, Abdulah was very nice as well. I particularly would like to say how happy we were with the condition of his mule. She was very well looked after. If this hadn't been the case I would have cancelled the trip, as some of the other mules with other groups looked in poor condition, thin and with sores and generally in a depressed state. Lovely clean rooms, although basic they were great. The views were amazing. Would highly recommend this trip to others, had a great time. I wasn't good with the heat so Youssef suggested getting up earlier so that we were walking in the cooler parts of the day
