Mount Everest's soaring summit has always attracted adventure lovers and adrenaline junkies from all over the world, and this Everest Base Camp tour also makes it possible for the regular traveler to explore this natural wonder with a highly experienced and licensed trekking guide.

The Everest Base Camp trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal and for good reason. A breath-taking flight to Lukla airport, stunning Himalayan scenery, the world's biggest glacier, thrilling trekking passes and warm hospitable Sherpa culture, together with hundreds of year old monasteries are some of the main attractions of the Everest Base Camp trek.

Trekking to the foot of the world's highest peak is not easy but with some willpower and an ability to walk 6-7 hours a day plus a couple of rest days in between, it's entirely possible. The reward for all the hardship will be majestic mountain views and pristine nature. The trek will take you through stunning landscapes, ethnic settlements, old Buddhist monasteries at Monjo, Namche, Tengpoche and Panboche, and ultimately to the midst of towering peaks including but not limited to Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Kang Tega, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Kusum Kangaro, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Lhotse, Lobuche Peak, Island Peak, Mt. Makalu and of course the breathtaking Mt. Everest itself towering to an altitude of 8,850 meters.
