Type of Trip
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).

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
