Highlights

 
  • Enjoy stunning views throughout the trip of the gorgeous Himalayan scenery.

  • Hike all the way up to the Everest base camp.

  • Explore the sacred city of Kathmandu and visit three UNESCO sites.

 

While climbing Mount Everest may be what first comes to mind when you think of adventures in Nepal, trekking to the Everest base camp is another excellent – and cheaper – option!

Over the course of three weeks, we will go sightseeing in Kathmandu, hike through the numerous valleys and foothills to the Everest base camp and make our return.

Along the way, we will enjoy fantastic views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam, among many others. We will also hike across a glacier, through forests and along rivers in the heart of the Nepalese backcountry.

As we go, we will visit numerous villages and meet some of the local people, who call this rugged place home. We will even meet the family of our lead guide, a very rare opportunity that not many trekkers or mountaineers get to do.

We will also have the chance to visit numerous monasteries and learn about the rich culture of Nepal as well as visit the famed high-altitude clinic, where we will learn how people adapt to the harsh reality of living at such high altitudes.

One of the many highlights of our trip will be hiking across the glacier as we approach Everest base camp. Get a taste of one of the many necessary mountaineering skills and see how you hold up.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for the adventure of a lifetime and embark on a challenging but intensely scenic and rewarding 23-day trek to the Everest base camp through the Nepalese backcountry!

If you like the look of this trip then we think you will also enjoy our 27-day Island Peak climb in the Lobuche East and Kala Pattar regions in Nepal!
