  • Enjoy an ultimate trekking experience in the Everest region
  • See magnificent views of the Himalayas, including Mount Everest, from Kala Patthar
  • Travel past sherpa hamlets, learn more about their culture
Ever since Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa conquered Mount Everest in 1953, the Everest region has been the ultimate travel destination for mountaineers and adventurers alike. Join us on this 15-day, guided trip as we travel to the base camp of the world's highest mountain, one that has seen countless stories created and hopes destroyed.

Starting with a 30-minute flight from Kathmandu to the small airstrip in Lukla, the trail to the Everest Base Camp runs through the Khumbu region, travelling through Namche Bazaar, commonly referred to as the 'gateway to Everest', Dingboche, Lobuche and Tengboche (home to the highest monastery in the world). Reach Everest Base Camp(5310m) on Day 9 of this trip and hike to the top of Kala Pattar (5545m) on Day 10.

Enjoy stunning views of the Himalayas from Kala Pattar before making your way back to Lukla, from where you will catch a flight back to Kathmandu. You have 2 free days during this trip for acclimatization. For more details, please refer to the itinerary below.

“I’d been wanting to do the Everest Base Camp Trek for years. The scenery was spectacular from day one. The change in elevation isn’t easy but the journey includes a couple of acclimatization days. I trekked in March, and be prepared for a big change of temperature from day to night. Days can be warm, hitting t-shirt weather by mid-day, but the nights dip below freezing. The guesthouses aren’t heated, so you’ll be needing those down jackets and warm sleeping bags. The weather was mostly clear and sunny, but a snowstorm set in as we neared base camp, so be prepared for all weathers. Shades, sunscreen, gloves, hats and scarfs are a must.
There are many little villages along the route, so there’s always somewhere to call in for lunch, and numerous shops if you need any more hiking supplies, most noticeably in the town of Namche in which you’ll spend a couple of days. Wifi and charging services can be found in most guesthouses, though these will not be free beyond Lukla.
Our guide Nuri was excellent, always cheerful, knowledgeable and making sure we were OK. And a big thanks to our porters Durgha and Abhinash. I has initially thought about trying to carry all my own stuff on the trek, but opted for a porter the day before the trek. And I’m very glad I did, it was a tough walk at times even with just my day bag.
Please note that flights between Kathmandu and Lukla can be cancelled in the case of bad weather. So always book your flights onwards from Kathmandu a couple of days after the trek ends in case you have problems getting back.”

“I was looking for a tailored programme, designed for a specific photographic project that was looking to support the nepalese people, and with Chris, I found a great human being, that made all the efforts to make possible our trip.
We had amazing days, as authentic as it can get, so I couldn't it recommend more. When I return to Nepal, Chris will always be my first contact.”

GOOD TO KNOW
NOTE: 1. Lukla flight based from Ramechhap Airport Dear Guests! This is to inform all of you that Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) has issued a NOTAM for Taxiway Maintenance due to which Kathmandu Airport will be closed from 22:30 hours to 6:30 hour everyday effective from September 01, 2019 to December 31, 2019. During the above mentioned period there will be more traffic congestion at Kathmandu Airport which leads to Air Traffic Hold, flight delay and high possibility for flight cancellation due to flight startup queue, therefore for smooth operation of Lukla flights, all the airlines will be operating Lukla flight from Ramechhap Airport effective October 01, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Ramechhap is located in the Tamakoshi River Valley, the capital of Ramechhap District at an altitude of 474 meter. It is located 132 kms east of Kathmandu and takes about 4 hours by drive from Kathmandu. Thank you for your support and apology for the inconvenience caused by this which is beyond our control. Alternatively, if you prefer to ride helicopter to/from Lukla based from Kathmandu avoiding long drive to/from Ramechhap can be arranged upon request paying additional fees. 2. In a worst-case scenario, if the flight from Kathmandu / Ramechhap to Lukla, or Lukla to Kathmandu / Ramechhap is delayed or cancelled due to bad weather, we can always transfer you to a next day ticket. However, in case you’re on a tight schedule time-wise, we can charter in a helicopter at additional fees.
CANCELLATION Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.
