The Everest Base Camp trek is a classic trek to the base of the highest peak in the world, Mount Everest. Apart from Mount Everest, you will also get to see Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Makalu (8,462 m), Mt. Nuptse (7,861 m), Mt Cho Oyu (8,201 m) and many other Himalayan giants. Moreover, you will get to visit several Sherpa villages along the trail. Hence, besides taking you to the foot of the world's highest mountain, this trek also gives you a great insight into the local Buddhist culture and lets you experience the famous Nepalese hospitality firsthand.

Walking in the footsteps of Hillary and Tenzing will eventually bring you to Kala Patthar, possibly the best vantage point to appreciate the true magnitude of Mt Everest. Feb-May and Sep-Oct are the best seasons to go for the classic Everest Base Camp trek.

The Everest Base Camp trek starts at Lukla, and the route weaves through the beautiful verdant hills of Solu to reach the Lamajura pass. We walk to the north along the Dudh Koshi River, all the way through terraced hills and small settlements of the renowned Sherpa people at the foothills of the greatest peak in the world, the Mt. Everest (8,848 m). The closer we get to Everest Base Camp the more mountain landscape we get.

If you can walk 6 hours a day, you can do this trek (including a couple of relaxation days with no walking for acclimatization). You can always add a porter which can be split between 2 people as a porter can carry up to 30 kgs.

This is an adventure of a lifetime and we are looking very much forward to showing you the Everest region. This trek is for everybody reasonably fit.

“I recently completed the 15 Day Everest Base Camp trek and had a fantastic time. All the arrangements for the trek (both before and after) were very well handled by the company with a very personalised and flexible approach. The trek itself was great. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather, a very enjoyable small group, the scenery was outstanding, and our guide, Venn, was excellent. Venn was very informative, patient, and extremely keen to make all the necessary arrangements regarding food, accommodation, and route to our liking. Overall a great experience.”
