Everest Base Camp Trek

Active Adventure
The Trek to Everest Base Camp (5340m/17521ft) will be a memory that you will cherish for the lifetime. There can be no trek as rewarding as one to the Everest viewpoint, Kala Patthar (5545m/18193 ft.) since the world’s highest peak is barely 10km/6 miles from there. The trek in itself is not particularly strenuous as this leisurely trek is designed keeping in mind the slow pace of the first time trekkers. The Everest Base Camp is usually two weeks trek that starts and ends at Lukla Airport (30 minutes flight from Kathmandu International Airport). There is more to the Everest trek than just Everest. While on this exciting trip, we will pass through several of tiny Sherpa villages and through remote valleys, monasteries, roaring rivers, frozen pools of melt water, glaciers and astonishing views of dazzling peaks all on the way before we finally date with the Everest.
