Everest Base Camp Trek
March, May, October 2017
A once-in-a-lifetime experience…
The BBC has listed “Everest Base Camp Trek” as one of ‘50 Places to See Before you die’. So whether you are an adventurer, nature lover, couple, student, individual, family, business or volunteer group – add this to your bucket list.
The trek is graded as strenuous, however if you are generally fit and well then you should have the confidence in completing this trek.
Unexpected thrills & majestic scenery …
Start the trek in Lukla and walk by the side of the DudhKosi River, which is terrifyingly beautiful. Walk up the hill to reach Namche, a Sherpa village, which has a cluster of houses and is the biggest of all Sherpa villages.
As you walk, you will come across monasteries, pleasant Sherpa villages, colourful religious flags, and peaceful nature. Alongside the trail there are flowering plants, while in the distance are the snow covered mountains.
Other points of attraction are the Khumbu Glacier; Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site; and Amadablam, the world’s most beautiful mountain. The Everest region is an area where life is simple, where the air is thin, and where the trails are steep.
Experienced teams …
All the guides are experienced and highly qualified, and they are also familiar with the mountain conditions and suitable alternatives. Together you will follow in the footsteps of famous persons such as Edmund Hillary and TenzingNorgay, the first to summit Everest at 29,028 ft on 29 May 1953.
You will be allocated a porter for the trek to carry your larger items along the trail leaving you to just carry a small backpack.
