Everest Base Camp Trek is the most majestic and picturesque walk in Himalaya culminating base of the world’s highest mountain, Mt Everest. Everest base camp trek falls in the bucket list of most fervent trekkers because it is an awesome walk with grand views of the great Himalayan giants.

In typical Himalayan flavour we will sense the natural and cultural charm of colorful rhododendron forests, cultural Sherpa villages and ancient monasteries. Also roaring rivers, prayer flags swathed suspension bridges, gigantic glaciers, enormous ice falls. Its a carnival in the Sherpa heartland adorned beautifully by floras and faunas of Sagarmatha National Park.

Our hiking to Everest Base Camp begins with your arrival, reception and transfer to your hotel the first day. In our second day, we explore around Kathmandu’s exotic heritage sites overflowed with Stupas, temples, monuments and medieval royal palaces. Actual Everest Base Camp walk starts on the third day after a brief adventurous flight to Lukla. We trek through several Sherpa villages like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and finally reach Everest Base Camp. We also visit Kala Patthar for beautiful sunset/sunrise view over the Himalayan range. After striking the goal, i.e. the Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar we return back same route. .

Please note this trek is classed as STRENUOUS.
 
For any trek at this level, fitness is most important and you may have to improve yours before departure. Most Strenuous treks are equivalent to extended walking in mountainous terrain at home, but usually at significantly higher altitudes; climate and remoteness can also play a part. Walking days are usually between 6 to 8 hours although there may be some longer days for pass-crossing or similar. Previous trekking experience is desirable but not essential if you are confident of your physical condition.

A full kit list will be provided upon booking onto the trek.
