Everest Base Camp Trekking

Everest Base Camp TrekkingEverest Base Camp trekking is arguably the most famous trekking route in the world and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable. Nepal is a fascinating country and the trek gives an insight into the lives and culture of the Sherpa people. Our ascent is steady and well paced to best suit the acclimatization needed. Sunrise on the snow capped peaks above the Khumbu Glacier is an unforgettable sight from the summit of Kalapattar. This trek is one for the lover of high places and those wanting to push themselves to the limit. It is a tough challenge and not to be taken lightly with generally well graded paths but some tougher sections along the Khumbu glacier.

Everest base camp trekking start From Kathmandu fly to Lukla and the adventure begins as we land at its tiny airstrip. We spend several days trekking through the homelands of the Sherpa people, amongst their villages and Buddhist monasteries, with distant views of Everest and the neighbouring Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the world. Nuptse, the beautiful Pumori and Ama Dablam, are considered by many, to be among the most beautiful mountains in Nepal. A day is spent at Namche Bazaar, the bustling market town in the heart of Sherpa country and also at Pheriche, a cluster of houses set amongst the high summer grazing pastures of the region. These rest days allow time to explore further and to acclimatize, an important factor in your enjoyment of the trek. Those who have fully acclimatized will be able to trek to Everest Base Camp without many problems. The highlight for most will be the awe-inspiring views which unfold from the summit of Kalapattar - the chaotic ice sculptures of the Khumbu Glacier, Nuptse and the south-west face of Everest itself. Not forgetting of course, the personal sense of achievement that many experience at the end of their trek.
