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.
