The 12-days Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most popular treks in the Everest region because of its great mountain vistas and fantastic trekking trails.

For many people, the Everest Base Camp trek is a lifelong dream coming true, allowing them to finally get close to Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain, via Everest Base Camp. The EBC trail involves small climbs and descents, traversing lush low land, alpine forests, glaciers, rivers, Buddhist monasteries, temples, and authentic Sherpa Villages.

The Everest Base Camp trek has two famous highlights - the Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar, a great viewpoint located at +5600 meters giving you close up views of Mt Everest, Mt Nuptse, and many other mountain ranges.

The delightful journey to Everest Base Camp starts with a Trans-Himalayan flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla also known as the entry point to the Everest region. The trek starts from Lukla trekking through Phakding to reach Namche bazaar based at an elevation 3,436M, also known as the capital of the Everest region. The trek then further ascends through Sagarmatha National Park, a great habitat for rich floras and faunas before slowly getting closer to Everest Base Camp and KalaPatthar.

“I booked my trip to Everest base camp with Breakfree Adventures as they response my email very quick, all the positive reviews online and best price they offer me.

So, if you are thinking of going to Nepal, you are highly recommended this company. Don’t forget to ask guide Ramesh for your trip. He is superb guide and changed the itinerary as we wanted. It was great experience.”

“It's impossible for me to imagine a better tour. Not only did we get an exceptional trek, but everything was extremely hands-on once our plans unexpectedly changed. When our trek was cut short due to my father's health, Bharat visited the hospital personally many times to check up on my father, and organized additional activities for us within Nepal to make up for time lost. He treated us more like family than clients. Our guide Ramesh Duwadi was nothing short of amazing as well. He was extremely patient and understanding throughout the entire trip - just an exemplary guide who made our comfort and enjoyment his top priority. They should be the model for other tour operators to follow.”
