Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek

Package Details

An Everest base camp trek is the adventure of a lifetime, a journey for those whose dreams soar higher than even the clouds as a spectacular high altitude trek in the mountains of Nepal.

Everest is more than a mountain and the journey to its base camp is more than just a trek. Along a route dubbed by some as "the steps to heaven," every bend in the trail provides another photo opportunity — beautiful forests, Sherpa villages, glacial moraines, and foothills.

Stand at the base of Mt Everest in awe of its majesty and Witness the sun setting over Everest from Kalapatthar, known as the Everest viewpoint and follow the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and many other famous mountaineers.

Here, you can Pass through Sagarmatha National Park with its unique flora and fauna, visit Tengboche Monastery, with its strong spiritual connection and be stunned by the chilling beauty of the Khumbu Glacier and Khumbu Icefalls.
