The trek to Everest Base Camp is perhaps the most iconic hike in the world and should be on any serious adventurer's bucket list. The scenic pilgrimage into the high Himalayas is not only a grand adventure to the foot of the highest mountain on earth but also a deep personal challenge.
As you wind your way up the Khumbu valley, you can expect to pass through enchanted rhododendron forests, stay in quaint villages, camp and trek on the glacier that forms on Mt. Everest and be surrounded by breath taking views of Himalayas. Not for the faint hearted, the trek is physical but achievable for anyone willing to put in a training.
Enjoy spending time visiting famous cultural and religious sights alogn the way. Our slow acclimatization schedule means there is plenty of time to explore landmarks like the famous Tengboche Monastery where you can stop by to visit a High Lama and receive a blessing, take time to explore the famous Namche Bazaar – the Sherpa capital, or have a beer in the world’s highest pub. Passing by countless Tibetan Buddhist stupas and chortens, you will feel the rich culture of Tibetan Buddhism come alive.
This trek takes you from Kathmandu by plane to Lukla at the head of the Khumbu valley. From there you trek roughly 40 miles/70 km to Everest Base camp, at 17,600ft/ 5,500m.
