12 Days

Jan, Mar, Apr, Jun - Dec




Any trip that allows you to see the glory of the world renowned Mount Everest (8,848m) is a trip worth taking.

For 12 exciting days, I would like to guide you from Lukla airport all the way to Everest base camp (5,450m) and back again.

You will get to see an array of unforgettable highlights during this nearly two week trek. And in the end, I have no doubt you will have an experience that will supply enough memories to last a lifetime.

During this trip, we will be walking an average of 5 to 6 hours every day. As a result, it is important that participants are in good physical condition. And while this trek does not involve technical aspects, any previous mountain trekking experience is definitely a plus.

This trip begins with one of the most exciting and scenic flights in the world: Kathmandu to Lukla. While only 35 minutes, you will see all that makes the Himalayas so incredible!

Once we arrive at Lukla, we will immediately start our long trek. We will make our way through several great places on the way to Everest base camp. Those places include Namche Bazaar, Dingboche, Tengboche and Lobuche. And after you’ve experienced the wonderment of Everest base camp, you will also get to attain a fantastic view of the great peak at Kalapattar. Afterwards, we will make our way back to Lukla, where you can enjoy the same scenic flight back to Kathmandu.

Would you like to trek to and admire the foot of the highest mountain in the world? If so, this amazing 12 day trek is the perfect adventure for you. To enjoy it for yourself, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
