Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest Base Camp trek not only offers breath-taking scenery but unique Sherpa culture. Trekkers can visiti ancient monasteries and villages along the way.  Walk through the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar, visit the famous Tengboche Monastery before heading to Everest Base Camp. The natural beauty, fascinating culture and a personal sense of achievement, as well as warm Nepali hospitality, makes the Everest Base Camp trek one of the world’s most unforgettable treks.

Begin your journey in Kathmandu where there is time for sightseeing before flying to Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. Follow the Dudh Koshi River to the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar where we rest before continuing to Tengboche Monastery and Dingboche.

Here we stop to acclimatize before continuing to Lobuche (4,930m) and onwards to Everest Base Camp (5,364m). Climb Kala Pattar (5,546m) for staggering views of the world's highest mountain. We descend through picturesque Sherpa villages to Lukla via Namche Bazaar before leaving the mountains behind for our return flight to Kathmandu
