Trip Overview:

The world famous Everest Base Camp trek takes 20 days and reaches a maximum height of 5,545m at Kala Pattar, offering fine views of Mount Everest. This option takes the more difficult and remote route via the Cho La Pass, visiting the beautiful Gokyo lakes on the way. This really is the best approach to EBC and well worth the effort. The trek has a number of stunning attractions which include spectacular scenery, monasteries and the Sherpa people of the Solu Khumbu. The trek starts and finishes at Lukla where there is a small airport at 2,800m.
Our trip is a few days longer than most to allow for full acclimatisation by party members.

Introduction

The trek to Everest Base Camp is for good reason one of the most famous in the world, and is a ‘must-do’ trip for all outdoor enthusiasts. With awe-inspiring views of the world’s highest and most beautiful mountains, our treks are carefully organised to ensure you have plenty of time to acclimatise comfortably, making sure you can enjoy the trekking experience to the full.

The first day we have a briefing and sightseeing day in Kathmandu, where we can make sure that your kit is what you need and help you to get anything in the shops of bustling Thamel where our office is based. Then we’ll fly to the world famous mountain airstrip at Lukla and begin the trek up the Khumbu Valley. We pass through many Sherpa villages, including the famous Sherpa ‘capital’, Namche Bazaar, as well as visiting the monastery at Thyangboche (or Tengboche).

The trekking is on good trails, with some moraine stretches nearer to our destination but nowhere is this climbing or even scrambling – there are good paths all of the way. You can expect to trek for 4 to 6 hours each day, with some days spent resting and acclimatising to ensure that we are all fit and healthy at altitude. This makes the trek suitable for any averagely fit walker. On the route accommodation is in Nepal’s famous tea houses – the accommodation is basic but comfortable and the friendly, hospitable Nepali people make your stay a memorable one.

Activities: Trekking and Hiking

Meals: Breakfast in Kathmandu and all meals during the trek
