"Your Holiday Planner for Nepal Adventure"
Everest Base Camp Trek reveals some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Himalayas. This trek is designed to fulfill the dream of many people to experience the historic route to the base of the world’s highest mountain. Our carefully devised itinerary with a number of rest days offers an exceptional way to acclimatize safely. On a trip of a lifetime we have learned never to rush a trek to altitude in the Himalaya and taking an extra few days makes all the difference to really being able to enjoy your trek. A slow ascent through wonderful Sherpa villages allows us time to enjoy the scenery, wildlife and visit a number of monasteries. Our trek culminates with a fine opportunity to trek to both Everest Base Camp and the nearby peak of Kala Pattar (5545m) for spectacular views of Mount Everest. So join and take delight in this high altitude remarkable adventure.
Everest Base Camp trek called most popular high altitude trek. From the tiny airfield of Lukla the trail leads through Sherpa villages, forests of fir and rhododendron and across high suspension bridges meeting caravans of Zobkyo (a yak-cow crossbreed) along the way and from Tengboche the views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam are sensational. Climbing above the trek line to cross alpine pastures and glacial moraine you eventually reach Base Camp, high on the Khumbu Glacier where colorful expedition tents give a bizarre appearance to this desolate place surrounded by rock, snow and ice.
If you suffer symptoms of altitude sickness and cannot go to the Base Camp, you can still make a worthwhile trek to less ambitious destinations such as Namche Bazaar, the administrative headquarter of the Khumbu region; Khumjung or Thame, more typical Sherpa villages; or Tengboche Monastery.
