The soaring summit of Mount Everest attracts adventure seekers and adrenaline junkies from all over the world. Join us as we travel to the base camp of the highest mountain on earth during this 12-day, guided trip. Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla airport and follow the trail that travels along the banks of the thundering Dudh Koshi River.

Reach Namche Bazaar on the second day of the trip. Travel past the Sherpa villages of Debuche, Dingboche and Lobuche to reach Gorakshep, a small settlement (5,164m) that sits on the edge of a frozen, sand-covered lakebed. Reach Everest Base Camp, located in the middle of the Khumbu Glacier, on the eighth day of the trip.

Head for Kala Patthar next. Enjoy stunning views of the mountains, including Mt Ama Dablam, Mt Kangtega, Mt Nuptse, Mt Thamserku, Mt Kusum Kanguru, Mt Pumori, Mt Lhotse, Lobuche Peak, Island Peak, Mt Makalu and, of course, the breathtaking Mt Everest itself, towering above the rest.

Start your journey downhill to Lukla after that. Get the chance to enjoy the hospitality and friendliness of the Sherpa people along the way. Learn more about their culture and religion during a visit to Tengboche Monastery. We look forward to taking you on a trek of a lifetime. Please go through the itinerary for more details.

“My partner and I went on this unforgettable trek for 12 days to EBC and had an amazing time. There were issues with the flights on the day we were due to fly to Lukla but the company booked us a helicopter at no extra charge, which meant amazing views and an amazing experience flying over the mountains coming in to Lukla.

The trek starts off going through many small villages along the path, and it’s very interesting seeing people go about their daily lives there, alongside sweeping beautiful views of greenery over the mountains, passing cows and donkeys carrying loads (the only version of Himalayan traffic jams you’ll see!) and lots of bridges to cross over the river. As the altitude goes higher the whole landscape changes to an alpine one with more shrubs and gravel and views of the snowy mountains above, and the climbing becomes colder, windier and more difficult because of the altitude, with some sections of steep climbing. Our guide Bibek was amazing – he not only was cheery and easy to get along with, always motivating us with a “Let’s do!”, but he gave us invaluable advice about what we needed for each day’s trek, what the route would be like, and recommendations on buying things like hiking poles and scarves where we would have struggled without them. Not only that but he has great knowledge of the surrounding mountains and views. He was also very understanding when things were harder for us, and always made sure we were well taken care of! Our safety and comfort were the most important things to him – he always checked in on how we were feeling, took the lead when the trail was tough to show us the safest and easiest route, and kept us safe from the traffic mentioned above.

The lodges do get a little rougher going towards higher altitude – be prepared for it to be cold (up to -20oC), despite the warm sleeping bags and down jackets we rented and the good weather we had on the trip. We would also highly recommend a porter as trekking at altitude was already difficult, we couldn’t have done it without them. At the end of it, we were so proud and happy to have done it, and the whole incredible experience was finished with an awesome night back in Lukla with some beers and traditional rice wine, and busting out some moves with Bibek and the porters, as well as a great Nepalese dinner the last night in Kathmandu to cap it all off.

Thanks so much for an awesome experience!”
Best trip ever!!

“Very well organized and without doubt the most wonderful and amazing adventure! I would strongly recommend Himalayan Leisure and its people. Please ask for Raju as your guide! He's such a great, positive and inspiring person, he will make your trip the best you can imagine. Raju knows a lot about the mountains, culture and history of Nepal, he's very gentle, organizes everything precisely and brings good and positive energy into the day. Raju is by far the best guide I have ever met! Together with Surbraj (porter) they make a great team. Both helpful, reliable and very attentive. Raju knows what hospitality means and made this trip a great experience. Thank you Raju, you are the best (and a rockstar!). Accommodation, food, planning and support, all amazing! Would highly recommend the company (Upendra) and Raju to anyone who wants to experience the Himalaya the best way possible! And thank you Subraj, for carrying my luggage and supporting me to reach Kala Patthar! You guys are amazing, just as Nepal is! Big hug, Annelieke”
Excellent trip!
