  • Trip introduction

    The trek to Everest Base Camp is on the wishlist of every high-altitude trekker, and for good reason! You'll be joining the small community of Everest Base Campers, and earn boasting rights for a lifetime. But with this package, you'll also get to take a day trip to the Everest Expedition Camp, where you'll eat lunch with the team that is attempting to summit Everest this year! You'll be able to interact with them, and spend a day at the Expedition Camp, which no other Everest Base Camp trek offers you.

    You'll also attempt a climb to Kalapathar (this is an optional activity) in the dark hours of the morning, to catch truly spectacular views of the sun rising over Mount Everest, setting the mountains ablaze.

    MPORTANT: While the trek to Everest Base Camp is a non-technical trek and does not require any rock-climbing or rappelling, it is not an easy one. You'll be trekking for over 10 days, in harsh terrain and in extreme weather. To add to that, you'll be climbing to 18,000 feet, which can be difficult to adapt to.

    DO NOTE: The cost for this trip includes the domestic flight from Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu, but not the flights from your home city to Nepal and back.

    Destination

    The actual trek to Everest Base Camp begins from Lukla, a charming village set at about 9000 feet above sea level. Over the next 14 days, you'll see the landscape change from pine forests and sparkling streams to a more rocky and bare terrain, with trails filled with snow and glacial moraine.

    There are rickety bridges to cross, pine forests to hike through, and plenty to see. You'll pass yak caravans, interact with the resilient Sherpa community, and will be greeted by pink-cheeked children from the villages you pass. En route, you'll stop at tea-houses, stop at famous landmarks, and spend nights in tea houses. The Everest Base Camp trek becomes a personal journey for many, and will have a significant positive impact on you.
