Experience hiking across incredible valleys, vast glaciers and amazing pristine lakes in the heart of the Himalaya, reaching the impressive height of 5,644 m, from where you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the towering Mt. Everest and all of the stunning surrounding peaks. Along the way you will also be encountering lush pastures, numerous Sherpa bazaars and various ancient Buddhist temples which will allow you to get a glimpse of authentic rural Nepalese lifestyle and culture.

The Everest Base Camp Trek will begin in Kathmandu where you’ll board a short flight (40 min) to the town of Lukla (2,860 m). From here you will meet your local Guide and we will begin our trek to Phakding (2,610 m), a Sherpa village located along the beautiful Bhote Koshi River gorge. The next stop will be Namche Bazaar (3,440 m) , a trading post for Sherpas which we’ll reach after walking past countless Mani stones and the typical nepalese strips of prayer flags.

Other villages we will be crossing include Tengboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche among others, as well as the Khumbu region’s most sacred and ancient Buddhist temple, Tengboche Monastery (3,867 m). At this point the trek will become more demanding as we will start our actual climb towards the Everest Base Camp, crossing various stunning glaciers. Once we reach the Base Camp (5,364m) we will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of the entire Khumbu Valley and its Himalayas. But we won’t head back yet, as we will continue our climb to Kala Patthar (5,644 m), from where Mt. Everest will be visible in all its glory as well as the incredible surrounding peaks.
