Everest Base Camp trek is the best way for non-elite climbers to get close to the world's highest mountain, plus it's a great insight into Sherpa culture and the high Himalaya. It is incredible to believe that in just two weeks out of the office, we can reach the base camp of the greatest mountain on earth, Everest. On this eleven day trek we witness some of the most breathtaking scenery, visiting some of the highest villages in the world, and admiring sunrise over the Himalayan snow-capped peaks and Khumbu Glacier. From the peak of Kala Patthar, we gaze up at the mighty Everest summit. On our return to Kathmandu, we spend our last night together to celebrate our journey.
The trek to Everest Base Camp is not a wilderness expedition. The trail is dotted with teahouses, tiny villages and prayer-flag-flung monasteries, adding a fascinating human element to this great outdoors. There will also be plenty of other trekkers – the Everest Base Camp trek is one of Nepal’s most popular.
