Reaching Everest Base Camp has become the goal of thousands of avid trekkers the world over. There is a sense of grandeur that comes with trekking through an area considered a Mecca for climbing and mountain enthusiasts.
The trek to Everest Base Camp is among the most dramatic and picturesque in the Himalaya. The scenery is varied and spectacular, the lodgings and tracks are of a very high standard, and the interaction with the local Sherpa people is truly memorable.
Our pre-monsoon treks are unique in that we have the privilege of staying overnight at Base Camp. Our days spent exploring Base Camp give us an appreciation of the inner workings of expedition life, while our post-monsoon departure enjoys the clear skies and pristine views of the autumnal trails. Those joining our April 1 departure, have the added experience of trekking alongside our expedition members en route to Base Camp.

We have specially developed the itinerary to combine a mix of fascinating cultural highlights into the journey. Initially you can enjoy the diversity of Kathmandu by visiting ancient temples that remain the spiritual focus for the Nepalese people. An experience not to be missed is the colour and bustle of the Thamel District, famous for its shopping and restaurants.
The trekking route ascends the Khumbu valley on well-formed trails that provide foot access between villages for the Sherpa people. With many of the world’s highest mountains to admire and all the varied and interesting people to see and meet, there is always plenty to see and assimilate along the way. Every day has the ability to astound you with new and interesting experiences!
