Everest stands at a towering 8,848 meters, also called by the names of Sagarmatha, and Chomolungma; itlies on the border of Tibet and Nepal with about half the mountain reaching into each country. Everest Base Camp denotes two base camps on the northern and southern faces of Mount Everest. The southern base camp, which is on the Nepali side, lies at 5,364m. Supplies are carried in on the backs of Sherpas with the help of yaks, in order to stock the southern base camp, for there is no road access here unlike its northern counterpart, making it wonderfully remote and isolated from the rest of the world.
Everest base camp trek is one of the most popular attractions in Nepal, bringing a huge sense of achievement to the thousands of people who choose to follow its trail whilst providing economical sustainment to all who live and work in this under developed region.
Trekking to Everest base camp provides the most spectacular mountain scenery ever beheld by mankind, its jagged peaks thrust into the stark blue sky has enthralled millions all over the world and we are happy to accompany you into the heart of our Nepali heritage. Any mention of Everest usually conjures up images of greatness, of the human capacity to overcome adversity at all costs and of the mighty power of nature, which deserves our utmost respect and admiration. We start our trek in Lukla, Khumbu region, mindfully ascending into immense glaciers and razor sharp peaks, spending most days at or above 3000m, with plenty of time for safe and gradual acclimatisation. Along the way we will meet and spend time with many indigenous peoples from the Sherpa tribe, enjoying their traditions and hospitality. At base camp we can lay eyes on the magical and terrifying Khumbu ice fall and glimpse the sweeping and windblown horizon with an endless trail of ice, snow, and jagged mountain as far as one can see.
Everest is one of many natural giants in this region and there are many options to extend the trek or take detours to other mountain peaks, such as Island Peak and Gokyo. Please share with us your ideas and aspirations and we will be more than happy to offer our suggestions and tailor a trip to suit your requirements.

It is important to consider that internal flights to/from Lukla can be subject to disruption. Due to bad weather, flights can sometimes be delayed or even cancelled. Although such disruption is rare, we should be prepared for every eventuality, any time of the year, even in the peak trekking season. In case of flight cancellation it is therefore advised to bring extra money to cover costs of additional nights in Kathmandu, as this expense will not be included in your package. If you have to stay in Kathmandu longer than planned, you can of course enjoy other activities like cultural tours, rafting or shopping as you wish, and we can help to arrange this for you. For those travellers on a schedule that cannot be compromised, in case of flight disruption which is very rare, we can arrange an alternative trek to suit personal needs and time constraints.
