The iconic Everest Base Camp Trek leads you through the Khumbu Valley, allowing you to experience the beauty of the surrounding Sagarmatha National Park while simultaneously providing breathtaking vistas of 4 of the 6 highest peaks in the world – Mt. Lhotse (8,516 meters), Mt. Makalu (8,470 meters) and Cho Oyu (8,201 meters).

The classic trek retraces the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay and the countless other early pioneers of Mount Everest as you trek from Lukla to the Base Camp.

As a teahouse trek you will stay in some of the highest villages in the world as you explore the local culture and traditions of the native Sherpas by learning about their spiritual connection with the mountains.

On the trek you will have the chance to ascend Kala Patthar, reaching an altitude of 5,500m and witness awe-inspiring views of Mount Everest.

You will also have the chance to explore the various Buddhist monasteries dotted along the trail and learn about a culture steeped in history and tradition, inextricably linked to the very mountains on which you have unforgettable views.

DIFFICULTY
Everest Base Camp is not an easy trek. Most of the trekking days involves long rocky path that go uphill and downhill. Average fitness is required not to be in the pain make sure you have enough walking experience to enjoy the trek. Most of the days include 4-7 hours walking. Altitude can be the problem too so drinking lots of fluids and going slowly is important to avoid altitude sickness.
Your safety is of our major concern. Your Trekking guide has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Since this adventure entails travelling in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. The Guide will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if required.

Leaving items in Kathmandu:
You will be able to leave some of your non-valuable items at your hotel in Kathmandu when on the trek. You do not need to take everything trekking especially since there is a 20 kg limit that the porter will carry for you.
