  • Get your first glimpse of the mighty Himalayan range on the included flight from Kathmandu to Lukla – the famous airport in the sky.

Base. Camp. Two little syllables that conjure up dreams as massive as the Himalayas themselves. This 15-day trekking tour is your chance to make these dreams come true, to challenge yourself and discover both the world’s most famous mountains and your own potential. Walk among giants of nature and leave the Wi-Fi and Netflix behind for card games in tiny teahouses, Sherpa stories and watching the sunrise over Everest. Because group dynamic is crucial on a trek like this, we’ve made a trip just for people who want to hike with other 18 to 29s. Plus, our commitment to the rights and fair treatment of porters and trekking guides means you can hike with a clear conscience knowing you’re doing the trek of a lifetime the ethical way.

In case of weather conditions leading to cancellations or delays in included flights, this trip will operate on an alternate itinerary. Please see day 1 of the itinerary for more details.

Douglas' review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“Was busy before joining the tour so really looking forward to wind down and get a well-deserved break. Starting in the hotspot of San Francisco and finishing in mind-blowing LA, with a lot of great flora and fauna in between. Our guide was knowledgeable and managed to make everything smooth. Was fortunate to join a great group of people as well.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • The weather can be unpredictable in the Himalayas and every year a significant number of trips have flights to or from Lukla delayed or cancelled due to weather conditions. See day 1 of the itinerary for the alternative plans should this happen on your trip.
  • Hiking the Himalayas is no walk in the park. But seriously, this trip includes 12 days of trekking for up to eight hours per day, reaching altitudes of over 5500 metres. Depending on the time of year, the weather can be harsh. Ask anyone who has done it and they will say the rewards are worth it, but we can’t stress enough that you must be in excellent health to participate. Think you’re up for it? Find our step-by-step training guide here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/trekking-training-guide-tips/.
  • The trekking lodges, known as teahouses, that we stay in on the trek are very simple with only basic facilities. Access to electricity points for charging devices will cost extra. Wi-Fi is available at some locations, but connections may be poor.
  • The scenery and conditions vary between seasons. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to trek in and consult this packing guide https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/packing-guide-for-trekking-in-nepal/.
  • The Everest Base Camp trek is a very popular route and you will encounter many other trekkers and groups on the trail and at the teahouses. If you are after a trek that sees less travellers and spends more time trekking through communities rather than on a more established route, see our Tamang Heritage & Langtang Valley Trek (HNXV).
  • This trip includes one or more overnight stays over 3500 metres (11500 ft) where there is a genuine risk of being affected by Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If left untreated AMS can be life-threatening. While the vast majority will only feel discomfort, it is not uncommon for a small number of people to need extra care which will be provided by our leaders and local staff. All our trips that spend time at high altitude follow our standard altitude safety measures. A number of medical conditions and medications can also reduce your body's ability to acclimatise, and thus will affect your performance at altitude and make you more susceptible to AMS. If you are worried about any pre-existing condition (e.g. heart problems), or unsure of your physical ability, you must seek medical advice prior to booking. You may also wish to discuss medication such as Diamox that may help aid acclimatisation. Read more about AMS here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/altitude-sickness
