Mt. Everest is the world's highest mountain, rising majestically 8,848 meters above sea level. It is so massive that the local people call it Sagarmatha, meaning Mother of the Universe. Almost everyone on the planet has heard of Mt. Everest, why not come and see it for yourself?

Our company has organized the perfect trip to the Everest region. Covering a period of 13 days, you will see not only Mt. Everest, but also the other high snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas in eastern Nepal. There are several peaks over 8000 meters in this part of the world, making them the tallest mountains on earth.

But there is more than just mountains. Walk next to fast flowing mountain streams, hike across massive glaciers, watch waterfalls cascading down the mountains and see the delicate wildflowers that bloom in a myriad of colours.

Then there is the amazing culture of the Sherpa people, the rugged mountain people who have called this land home for over 1000 years. Their colourful homes and terraced farms are truly an amazing work of art.

This year, why not come to visit the enchanting land of Nepal and see the world’s highest mountain for yourself? You can trek to Everest Base Camp and back, enjoying a most rewarding experience of a lifetime. You can do it, with Buddha Treks & Expedition!

“Nosotros grupo de 5 viajeros tuvimos oportunidad realizar trekking al campo base del Everest. Fue una experiencia inolvidable. Todo funciono por orden y correcto. Tuvimos muy buena suerte con clima y el vuelo a Lukla y vuelta todo salió como provisto. El guía y sherpa todo suportaron muy bien y son muy educados. Felicitamos los trabajo de Buddha Treks.”

Other Practical InformationOur trip package includes complete requirement during trek: It is fully organized that includes accommodation, all meals in trekking, all necessary logistic support, guide and porters, trekking permits and entrance fee, etc. There is not any hidden charge. The trip itinerary is crafted by expertise team. It includes plenty of time to insure your leisure and taking you to your desired destination. We are very much flexible where it is necessary. Please kindly inform us if you need any amendment. DOMESTIC FLIGHTS: Kathmandu to Lukla and return flight can be affected by weather conditions and congestion which can lead to delays, sometimes of several days. We request you to ensure that you have left spare days to account for moderate delays, but can't guarantee against longer delays which may affect your international flight. A TYPICAL TREKKING DAY A typical day revolves around the Nepal sunrise and sunset, rather than any Western time schedule. The day starts with an early wake-up call. You then pack up your gear and enjoy a rousing breakfast before starting your morning’s walk. The sirdar will already be organized and have assigned loads to porters and your group will then set off on the trail at a leisurely pace, enjoying the view and stopping to take photographs. After 2-3 hours walk you stop for lunch. This lasts for about 90 minutes which gives you time to relax, or explore the local village. The afternoon’s walk is usually shorter and we arrive at the campsite or tea-house in plenty of time to relax and savor the surroundings. Later in the evening dinner is served, giving you an opportunity to sample the delicious food, talk over the day’s events, and look forward to another special day on the trails of Nepal. HEALTH ISSUES We recommend that all clients consult their doctor to discuss the health issues associated with their trek. We also recommend that clients bring their own personal first aid kit to supplement the comprehensive first aid kit carried by the Trek Leader. VACCINATIONS REQUIRED Please ensure that you allow at least 1 month to complete a course of vaccinations. Whilst your personal doctor will be the final authority, we recommend the following : • Poliomyelitis • Typhoid • Tetanus • Rabies • Pneumococcal • Immunoglobulin (for Hepatitis A) MALARIA Nepal is listed as a country for which malaria prophylaxis is advised. We will not be visiting any malarial areas on the treks, however you may wish to consult your doctor about the need to take malaria pills. Trekkers who plan to do rafting and jungle excursions are advised to take the necessary medication to protect against malaria. ALTITUDE SICKNESS Many treks in Nepal can take you quite rapidly to high altitudes, so you need to give your body time to acclimatize. If you ascend faster than your body can acclimatize you will start to develop symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). A headache being the most common symptom, others are nausea, vomiting, fatigue, loss of appetite, dizziness and sleep disturbances. The best way to acclimatize is to ascend slowly and gradually. The common wisdom is that you should take 2-3 days to reach 3000m – If flying in to above this height remember to take extra acclimatization days (for example flying into Lukla). Once above 3000m, you should sleep no more than around 300m above your last nights altitude, and take a rest day every 3 days (or 1000m). At times it can be difficult to stick exactly to this schedule, as villages aren't always conveniently placed for acclimatizing, so you should think of the 300m as an average. During the day it is okay to trek higher as long as you descend to sleep. Remember the mountaineer’s saying "Climb High, Sleep Low". If at any time you get symptoms of AMS you should not climb higher until they are gone. If they persist then you should descend to below the height where they first started. Only start to climb again when they have gone. All of our itineraries allow for a proper acclimatisation schedule, and of course on our private departures you have the freedom to go slower if you are finding it tough - everyone acclimatises at a different rate. Please also consider your guide and porters and watch for signs of AMS in them. They are not immune to AMS. You will find a graph below detailing the acclimatisation schedule. It shows the ideal acclimatisation schedule against suggested itinerary. We always aim to get as close to the ideal as possible taking account of such things as available accommodation and camping spots with water etc. INSURANCE We INSIST that an appropriate insurance policy is taken out which covers travel in isolated and mountainous areas, and which also includes helicopter rescue. We recommend that you consult a reputable insurance agent or insurance specialist. RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT Footwear: Trekking Boots, thick socks, light socks, camp shoes. Clothing: Down or fibre Jacket, filled waterproof jacket and trousers, sweater or fleece jacket, warm cotton trousers, shirts and T-shirts, shorts, long underwear, wool hat, sun hat, gloves, bathing suit, track suit.
