This traditional Everest Base Camp trek is perhaps the most famous in the world. Ideal for those who are new to the delights of trekking or those with limited time. Upon arrival in Kathmandu, you will be greeted by the wonderful hustle and bustle, sights and smells of this vibrant capital. We then make an early departure to the famous Lukla airstrip where our journey into the heart of Nepal begins. 

You will find yourself immersed in the wonders of this beautiful country, with its idyllic blue roofed houses, colourful prayer flags, fragrant rhododendrons, friendly Sherpa life and breath-taking scenery. We trek through the prosperous Sherpa capital, Namche Bazaar and many other delightful Sherpa villages, including Thyangboche with its impressive temple and the quieter farming village of Dingboche. At many points along this route you will stand in awe amidst breath-taking mountain views of one of the most beautiful peaks in the world; Ama Dablam, leading to the towering faces of Everest itself. 

We arrive at Everest Base camp and finally complete our impressive journey with an ascent of the magnificent peak of Kala Patthar at 5,644m. Your dreams will be fulfilled as you are rewarded with an awesome 360 degree panorama of spectacular 8,000m peaks; each one framing the world’s highest mountain. 

If you are used to regular multi day hill walking you will have the right level of fitness to fully enjoy your time on this trek. Previous walking experience is not essential but will help you get the most out of this trip. Most days involve 5 - 7 hours walking plus plenty of rest stops 

In Kathmandu accommodation is in a 3*- 4* hotel, in rooms with private facilities. On trek we use Nepalese trekking lodges (Tea Houses) which are locally owned and run fairly basic establishments providing accommodation with 2 - 3 beds arranged in dormitories. There is a central dining/sitting room where food and drinks are served. Toilet facilities are usually communal, although some Tea Houses have private facilities. Despite the basic facilities, it is a great experience to share the company of local families who will often entertain with local songs and dance!
