For mere mortals, standing on the summit of Mt Everest, the world's highest mountain soaring some at 8,849m above sea level will always remain a dream. So why not attempt to visit its Base Camp, at an altitude of 5,364m instead.
The journey through the Sherpa homelands and the shining spires of the Khumbu ice fall thoroughly deserves its moniker of one the world’s greatest treks. Not to be undertaken lightly. this trek rewards with incredible scenery, remote village and rich and diverse cultural landscapes.
This is an exhilarating trek where most of the trekking days are 5-6 hours long, sometimes up to 8 hours. You steadily gain altitude, and the trek is carefully paced to allow your body to adjust to the altitude. The paths and tracks are a mix of wide, relatively even and well marked main trails, to more alpine style footpaths on the higher hills. The trekking is sustained with rest days built in to allow acclimatisation. If you're an active adventurer, like multi-day walks and would like to see Sagarmatha, the Godess of the Sky up close, then join us on this unforgettable adventure!
Mount Everest is the mountain everyone knows. To see and more than a mountain and the journey around its foothills is more than just a trek. Every bend in the trail provides another photo opportunity – beautiful forests, Sherpa villages, glacial moraines, and foothills. For active adventurers not afraid to break a sweat, our full trekking support staff will bring you close to local cultures before opening a window to the top of the world.
