Everest Base Camp Trek is more than a mountain and the journey to its base camp is more than just a trek.
We invite you to join us on the legendary Everest Base Camp Trek. Face the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest (8848 meters), along with several other of the world’s highest peaks. Feel the thrill of high Himalayan trekking as you climb to altitudes that are not suitable for permanent life to exist. The lunar-like landscape will blow you away, particularly from Kala Patthar (5545 meters) – the absolute best view of Everest that exists.
Everest was first summited in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary, sparking international interest in the region and its people. Trekkers and mountaineers from across the globe have their sights set on Everest and it is a privilege simply to reach its base camp. There is a surreal feeling once you arrive to base camp, a feeling that you are experiencing a historical and natural phenomenon.
The trail is often listed as one of the top treks in the world not only for the awe-inspiring landscape, but also for the rich culture that lies within and along the trail. The Sherpa people are known for their incredible ability to withstand high altitudes, and for their unprecedented hospitality. There are monasteries, prayer flags, mani walls, and chhortens scattered along the trail, adding a lot of cultural value to the adventure. If you would like to visit during Mani Rimdu or any of the other exciting holidays that take place in the Khumbu region, let us know and we will arrange that!
The trail starts by flying to Lukla, what is said to be one of the most dangerous flights in the world (do not worry, you will be safe!). It is a gradual and continual hike from here on. First, though, we stop in Namche Bazaar. What a city Namche is! It is the locus point of Sherpa culture and trekking culture. Shops, bakeries, and guesthouses line the stone streets. It is the perfect place to acclimatize and explore.
Higher and higher we go, up to Tengboche Monastery – a large Tibetan Buddhist complex. Get some blessings here and traverse further into the soon-to-be desolate landscape. Reaching Everest Base Camp Trek is a most memorable moment. As stated before, Kala Patthar is an even more majestic moment. Throughout the trek, you will see several more of the world’s tallest mountains, including Lhotse, Makalu, and more! From the top, we retrace our steps back to Lukla, getting another chance to admire the astonishing peaks.
