Everest Base Camp Trek

Duration: 20 days

Months: March- April

Tour Grade: Challenging

A trek which takes you into the heart of the mountains and the culture of the Everest region-to be the boot of the great peak itself. 

Commencing in Lukla you trek up to the Sherpa 'capital' of Namche Bazaar. A day is spent here for acclimatization and just soaking up the atmosphere of this bustling village before heading on up through Tengboche (visiting the great monastery), Pheriche, Lobuche village and finally to your highest camp at Gorakshep.

This is the jumping off point for the climb up to Kala Pattar for spectacular views of Mt. Everest, and the walk into Everest Base Camp. This really is breathtaking mountain scenery and is well worth the effort of getting there. It is a relatively short trek which will have you standing literally at the foot of the world's greatest peak.

A friend put me in touch with Karma ahead of my trip to Nepal. I cannot say enough positive things about Karma to describe his knowledge, honesty, respect, kindness and professionalism. He put me at ease for my adventure to Everest Base Camp because of his knowledge and passion for this beautiful country. Without Karma\'s support, and good care my trip would never have been so successful and enjoyable. I am sorry for the delay in letting you know my appreciation, but I cannot thank you enough for your good and kind service. I will certainly contact you in the future for trips I am interested in to your areas of expertise and I will recommend you wholeheartedly to my riends and associates.
