Description

Would you like to discover one of the most emblematic trekking routes in Nepal? Then this Mt. Everest Base Camp trek is a must for you!

The Mt. Everest Base Camp trek is a classic in the Himalayas. This stunning spot at the base of the highest mountain in the world is located at an altitude of 5364 m (17,598 ft) and is a common stop for mountaineers climbing the southeast ridge of the mountain. Of course, climbing to the summit of Everest is not for everyone, however, that does not mean you cannot enjoy this Himalaya wonder if you are not an advanced mountaineer.

On this trek, we will start of from Kathmandu and fly to Lukla, from where we will begin hiking to Phakding. Over the course of the following days, we will stop at emblematic spots in the Everest region such as Namche Bazaar,  and the Khumbu Glacier. We will also discover the stunning Sherpa culture, and catch sight of amazing peaks including Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Makalu (8,463 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201 m), and many others. After reaching the EBC, we will climb to  Kala Patthar (5,550m), to enjoy stunning views of the emblematic mountain.

Please keep in mind that this program is open to trekkers of all levels. However, it is a demanding trek that will require adequate physical preparation. Of course, we will be there to help and guide you every step of the way.

We had an amazing Mardi Himal trek. We booked last minute and we were dealt with promptly and professionally. The trek was fully customisable including a stay in a lovely hotel and bus rides to and from Kathmandu. Our guide Amir was awesome and made our trek everything we wanted. Thank you so much!

We hebben echt genoten van onze trekking naar ABC. Jammer genoeg waren er echter overal problemen met de kamer. We hebben dan expres via een agency geboekt en meer betaald, zodat we zeker een kamer overal zouden krijgen. Dit bleek dan een probleem te zijn, omdat er niets op voorhand was geboekt. Ook hebben we last minute (letterlijk 5 min voor de 1e ontmoeting) een bericht van Hari gekregen dat we een andere guide zouden krijgen. Hierbij kregen we geen uitleg. De nieuwe guide had geen EHBO kit mee en wist ook helemaal niet wat allemaal inbegrepen was in onze boeking. Dit was opzich geen probleem, maar het leek plots allemaal niet meer zo goed georganiseerd als het beloofde te zijn. Ondanks dit hebben we echt wel genoten van onze tocht en zijn we blij dat we het gedaan hebben.
