Description

Mount Everest (8,848m) is a legendary mountain. And while reaching its summit is the goal of many people, I believe hiking to its famed base camp is an adventure all on its own.

Over the course of 16 days, you will have the chance to hike through beautiful Himalayan terrain. There is so much to see during this trek that every day will be worthwhile.

The trek will start in the city of Kathmandu, where you will arrive, and also have a day to tour the city. Afterwards, we will take an exciting flight to Lukla. And from there, the trekking will begin.

With Everest looming above and beyond, constantly staring down, awaiting your arrival, you will see some truly amazing things. Some of the best sights include Namche Bazaar, several Sherpa villages, and the Pangboche and Thyangboche monastaries.

We will be at high altitude throughout the trek, but there will be several stays designated for acclimatization. However, the advantage of the altitude will be the incomparable views you will have. You will have the chance to marvel at a panoramic view of Everest from Kala Pattar. And you will also have the chance, throughout the hike, to admire some of the highest mountains in the world, from Lhotse (8,516m) to Nuptse (7,861m). Finally, at the culmination of our trek, we will reach the famous Everest Base Camp (5,362m).

Everything about Everest is magical. That includes its base camp. And considering the altitude of that camp is higher than such famous mountains as the Matterhorn (4,478m) and Mont Blanc (4,810m) it’s easy to why. So please message me if trekking to this amazing area interests you.

If you have more time in Nepal, and want to trek to another great mountain, I also offer a 29 day trip to the base camp of Kanchenjunga (8,586m).
