Following the footsteps of Hillary and Tenzing to the Greatest Mountain in the world! The ultimate challenge of Everest Base Camp trek offers breathtaking mountain panoramas, if you like to walk, this is one of the most inspiring treks in the world to do it.
This Everest Base Camp trek is a great introductory lodge trek that offers sensational mountain views and an insight into the lives of the Sherpa people. After exploring the temples, shrines, bazaars and restaurants of Kathmandu we take an exciting mountain flight to Lukla and trek up the Dudh Kosi Valley, surrounded by the soaring peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru. It’s a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, capital of the Kumbu Sherpas, where we are again greeted by spectacular mountain vistas.
A rest day here aids acclimatisation and there are great optional walks to enjoy the area. We then follow the trail to famous Tengboche, located high on a ridge where a magnificent 360-degree panorama awaits. The views of Everest, the Lhotse-Nuptse Wall, Ama Dablam and Kantega dominate this peaceful and spiritual location – surely one of the most tranquil and inspiring treks in the world.
While passing Buddhist monasteries, views of Everest get closer every day. This stunning trek visits both,Everest Base Camp and KalaPatthar (5555m), a viewpoint recognised as the best vantage point to see Mount Everest which is a premier goal for many adventurous walkers in the Himalayas.
After trekking to Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar we return at our leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for our return flight to Kathmandu.
