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.

GOOD TO KNOW
CANCELLATION

Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.

Other Practical InformationDuring the peak travel seasons from March to May and September to November, flights between Kathmandu and Lukla are rerouted from Kathmandu to Ramechhap Airport due to heavy traffic congestion. This means travelers must drive approximately 135 kilometers, which takes about 4 hours under normal traffic conditions, to reach Ramechhap Airport to catch their flight to Lukla. The same process applies for the return journey from Lukla to Kathmandu. Unfortunately, this rerouting is unavoidable due to the congestion in Kathmandu. For those who prefer a direct flight to Lukla or back to Kathmandu, helicopter flights are available as an alternative, albeit at a higher cost. Please feel free to contact us for more information on this matter.
