Description

To see Mount Everest (8,848m) is an experience you will never forget. However, the trek to get to the mighty mountain’s base camp will provide you with so much more than just the views of the world’s highest peak.

For 14 days, we would like to guide you to the base camp of Mount Everest. And, along the way, we would like to show you an abundance of unforgettable views, villages and so much more.

Our trip will begin in the Nepalese capital city of Kathmandu. Once there, you will be given time to explore the great city and its collection of temples and shops. After that, the journey will begin. And, it will start with a flight you will never forget. For about 40 minutes you will get to fly through the Himalayas on one of the most thrilling and scenic flights in the world: the Kathmandu – Lukla route.

After arriving in Lukla, we will trek to a number of popular villages. Those villages include Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Dingboche and Lobuche. We will also stop at the Tengboche Monastery. After that, we will arrive at Everest Base Camp, where you can admire the majestic Mount Everest. And, because we will be trekking for several days prior to arriving at the camp, you will have plenty of time to acclimatize. Finally, as an added bonus, following base camp, we will trek to the summit of Kala Patar (5,645m). From the summit, you will get to enjoy even more spectacular views.

Following the base camp and summit of Kala Patar, we will make our way back to Kathmandu, via Namache Bazaar and yet another exciting flight from Lukla.

We will be trekking from 5-7 hours per day during this trip. As a result, you should be in good physical condition. However, at the end of each day, you will get to rest in a comfortable guesthouse.

Have you ever dreamed of seeing Mount Everest, but don’t have intentions on climbing the great mountain? Then this 14 day expedition is for you. To join us, please send a request.

We also offer a 10 day trekking adventure to the base camp of Annapurna.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
