Description

Follow me to the base camp of the world´s tallest mountain on this 16-day journey through unforgettable sights and traditional culture! I will take you on a tour of the surrounding landscapes that are home to the people and traditions that make Nepal so special.

Nepal is well-known for Mt. Everest (8,848m) and is the central attraction for adventurers from across the globe. The surrounding communities are all connected to the Himalayas, and have created their own world around these impressive mountains.

The program begins in Kathmandu, where we will spend time sightseeing and exploring before flying out to our expedition.

On our trek towards the Everest Base Camp, we pass through the Sherpa capital of the world, Namche Bazaar. It is a popular cultural hub and is designed around the commerce of trekking and climbing. The other villages along our route have an incredible view of Ama Dablam (6,812m), an immense peak that serves as an excellent precursor to Mt. Everest.

Once we reach the Everest Base Camp, we trek to the peak of Kala Patthar (5,554m). This is arguably the best vantage point of Mt. Everest, and it is certainly one of the most significant panoramas you will find in your entire life – It will leave you speechless.

Throughout the trek, you will see Nepal through the eyes of the locals and can truly expose yourself to life in the Himalayas. We will be staying in lodges as we head through the region.  You will have the opportunity to see Thyangboche and its temple, as well as the quiet farming village of Dingboche.

This is an excellent program for those just getting started in trekking, and for those who might have a limited amount of time available to travel.

This adventure will require a moderate to advanced level of fitness.

Let me take you on this immersive Everest tour and book now for an unforgettable experience!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
