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).

About the guide

Hi! I'm Jyamchang, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.

I come from the East part of Nepal, between Makalu (8,470m) and Kangchenjunga (8,586m). I am IFMGA/UIAGM fully certified since 2009.

I have 20+ experience of climbing in the Himalaya. I’ve climbed Mt Everest (7 times), Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet (2 times), Mt Ama Dablam (8 times), Baruntse (2 times), Island peak (15 times), Lobuche (10 times), Pokhalde (10 times), Mera peak (10 times), Mehera peak (5 times), Chulu far east (3 times), Mt Shishapangma until camp 3, Manaslu until 7200m, and Chulu West, Lhakpa ri and other another few more times.

I also have extensive experience of climbing in Europe: France, Italy, UK and Norway (where I work for three months during the summer as a glacier guide).
I'm also a technical mountain rescue coordinator for the 8000's.

It will be my pleasure to guide you through your journey whether for trekking, peak climbing or any mountaineering expedition. Get in touch and let's discuss about the purpose of your trip.

These guides are professional and really friendly. They do their best to make you trip special and memorable. I would trust them to take care of me if something happened. At our hike in the Everest region they managed to solve every small and larger problems that showed up. If I ever go back these are the people I would have with me again.
