There is absolutely nothing like trekking to the world famous Mount Everest Base Camp. To be able to stand at the base of the highest mountain on Earth is an experience you will never forget. That is why we are so happy to offer this 15-day expedition that will provide you with that experience along with so much more.

Our trip will begin in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. You will be given time to explore the wonderful city before we make our way toward the great mountain. Once we reach the base camp, you will get to gaze up at the behemoth peak to your heart’s content. Moreover, you will also get to enjoy several great hikes in the area. Some of those hikes will take you within view of several more gigantic Himalayan peaks. Those peaks include Ama Dablam, Pumori, Nuptse and more. You will also be given the option to enjoy a side hike to Kala Patthar, which rests at an altitude of over 18,000 feet!

Other great highlights you will get to enjoy around Everest base camp include the chance to visit a number of local Buddhist monasteries. You can also visit different markets, or relax in the various tea houses, where you can meet and interact with Nepalese locals. After your memorable experience around the base camp, we will return to the city of Kathmandu.

Participants on this trip should have prior hiking experience. You should also be good physical condition.

What people are saying about SWS



Overall, the fair evaluation for the SWS Mountain Guides and the guide assigned to me is 3 stars. Reasons: 1. The guide did not seem to remember or respect the fact that I was new to mountaineering and that the name of program is called “introduction to mountaineering...”. For example, the guide set his own time for walking and resting without any concern to my physical ability for that timing. The guide walked ahead many times and didn’t even notice when I fell a few times. I understand the guide is not the insurer of safety or a hand holder, but a complete abrasive approach to the service is not right, especially when it’s a paid service. Perhaps, the guide is not a right choice for introduction tours. 2. There was a miscommunication with timing of the summit day. I thought we would start summiting around 5am the next day; however, I was told less than 15 hours before that we would start hiking at 1am the next day from base camp. We arrived at base camp early afternoon, and I’m wired up, hot, and not prepared to fall asleep between 5pm-12am, thus, I didn’t sleep at all. I attempted the summit hike but around 12k feet the sleep deprivation was killing me and I was catching myself falling asleep and my body trying to lay down while waking. The guide didn’t seem to concerned about this. Lack of empathy. Eventually, I had to insist we turn around because I didn’t want to go beyond 30 hours of no sleep and still have to descend from the summit. 3. The guide did help set up the tent and food. The guide did explain layers of clothes on and off and why. The guide did help instruct how to pack and why. 4. Overall, I feel this guide is best suited for advanced climbers not introduction courses as he seems to be more of a “ill walk ahead of you” not “ill walk with you” type of guide.



This was an amazing trip and overall super positive experience with SWS Mountain Guides. I had a great guide with lots of mountain experience and many cool stories to share!


Had an amazing experience climbing Mt. Whitney with Richard & Tim. They were excellent guides and safely got us to the summit and back.


Neil from SWS was amazing. We climbed the Mountaineering Route up to Mt. Whitney. It was an amazing experience. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I leaned a lot. I would absolutely use these guys again.


Too bad this review does not allow six stars. SWS is professional, client focused, flexible, and has the clients best interests in mind. I can say the personnel and leadership skills of the SWS guides are among the best. You can't go wrong with SWS.
