About the event

EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK - 16 Days

The Everest Base Camp Trek is a popular adventure that takes you to the base of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest. Located in the Sagarmatha National Park in Nepal, the trek takes you through breathtaking landscapes, including alpine forests, glaciers, and high-altitude plateaus.

The trek will begin in the town of Lukla, where you'll catch a flight from Kathmandu. From there, you'll follow a well-trodden path through the Solu-Khumbu region, home to the Sherpa people. You'll have the opportunity to visit local villages, meet the friendly Sherpa people, and learn about their culture and way of life. As you make your way towards the base camp, you'll pass through Namche Bazaar, the largest town in the region, and Tengboche, home to the Tengboche Monastery, one of the largest in the region. You'll also have the chance to visit the memorials of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, who were the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest in 1953.

The final stretch of the trek takes you through the Khumbu Icefall, a treacherous section of the mountain where huge blocks of ice shift and crumble. From there, it's a short hike to the base camp, located at an altitude of 5,364 meters (17,598 feet).

The trek to Everest Base Camp is a physically demanding journey, but the reward is worth it. The views of the surrounding mountains, including the iconic peak of Mount Everest, are truly breathtaking and will stay with you for a lifetime.
