Overview

With the help of our team experts, we can bring you to the top of the world. Regardless of who you are and how old you are, we will be there to help check this off your bucket list.The Everest region is one of the world’s most popular and spectacular trekking destinations and is famous for its spectacular mountain peaks, including Mt. Everest (8,848m) and several other giants and it has lured many people to experience it. Prepare for the most significant adventure yet – the Everest Base Camp trek. This famed trek may sound daunting, but it's sure to take your breath away.

 

The trip begins at Kathmandu, where you can visit some of the stunning Unesco Heritage sites or head on to the valley for its scenic views. From Kathmandu, we will fly on to Lukla and will go through the bustling market village of Namche Bazar, the Sherpa capital of the Khumbu. The rich Sherpa culture and their friendly nature are an added extra bonus on this awe-inspiring trip. We will them go through Tengboche, the home of Nepal’s most famous monastery, situated beneath the impressive backdrop of Everest and Ama Dablam (6,856m), to name but a few. The most challenging part of this trip will be the hike across Khumbu Glacier to reach our final goal to Everest Base Camp, and the hike up to Kala Patthar – the highest point – for its breath-taking view.

 

This popular trek isn’t just culturally awe-inspiring; it also boasts of its beautiful trails. Experience being on top of the world and indulge in one of the most stunning views you’ll ever come across.

 

There are no limits to the beauty that you will witness on this trek. Our team’s goal is to make sure that you experience the best sights and sounds Nepal has to offer. It’s our priority to guide you on the best trek you’ll ever be a part of. We look forward to being part of your next adventure.

 

We at Himalayan Treks allow full customisation for our customers, which is why we also have add-ons and trip extensions which can be perused by interested trekkers. Some popular trip extensions availed by our clients include a day or more exploring the historic sites of KathmanduBhaktapur or why not pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Chitwan National Park. Likewise, it's also possible to extend your trek to link it with other treks in the same Everest area, for instance the Gokyo Valley trek. However, if you are looking for a different experience altogether, we can recommend the Annapurna Circuit trek or the Manaslu Circuit trek.
