Highlights of the Trip

detailed description

When the trails of Nepal were opened after 1950's, Everest Base Camp became the premier goal for many adventurous walkers. This stunning trek visits both the base camp and KalaPatthar (5545m), a viewpoint recognized as the best point to see Mount Everest.

The Everest Base Camp trek is the most famous trekking route in the Everest Region and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable. Nepal is a fascinating country and the trek gives an insight into the lives and culture of the Sherpa people. Our ascent is steady and well paced to best suit the acclimatization needed. Sunrise on the snow capped peaks above the Khumbu Glacier is an unforgettable sight from the summit of Kala Patthar. This trek is one for the lover of high places and those wanting to push themselves to the limit. It is a tough challenge and not to be taken lightly with generally well graded paths but some tougher sections along the Khumbu glacier.
