Everest base camp trek, the trek to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain is one of the most popular and perhaps the greatest of all the trekking itineraries in the world. The trek is a magic blend of fascinating culture, jaw-dropping scenery and strenuous endeavour that never fails to impress.

The trek to Base Camp follows a gentle acclimatisation regime with plenty of rest days allowing us to enjoy the trek’s many unique places. We start in the vibrant city of Kathmandu, where our senses will be captivated by the vast blend of religions, culture and scenic experiences before flying to the spectacularly located mountain town of Lukla (2,800m), from where we begin our trek into the Khumbu Valley.

We follow an ancient route that will take us through tiny villages and remote valleys, past impressive monasteries and over high mountain passes. The views grow more spectacular every day as we traverse below the hanging glaciers of Kangtega, Ama Dablam and Cholatse with Mount Everest and Lhotse visible in the distance. After a few days of captivating trekking, we arrive at Base Camp and cast our eyes over and above the notorious icefall to follow the Western Cwm where the route to the top of the world disappears from view. Heading back to climb Kala Patthar (5,550m) which stands at the feet of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Pumori the panorama is truly spectacular.
