Trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp will bring you a front-row view of the crown of the world. It is an epic journey that is suitable for those of adventurous spirit following the footsteps of world-famous and legendary climbers. Mt Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Lola, and Labuche are the famous mountains that can be viewed as we walk. Trekking to Mount Everest not only means lofty peaks and high altitude but it is also accompanied by natural beauty, flora, fauna, and rich Sherpa culture. Tibetan Buddhism has a huge influence on the life of the Sherpa people and we will visit several monasteries along the way.

Our trek begins in Lukla after a breathtaking aeroplane ride from Kathmandu. We will rest that night at Phakding following an overall downhill descent. Further trekking to Jorsalle will bring us to the National Park entrance. Further, ahead we will reach Namche, Tengboche, and Pangbuche as we walk through forests of rhododendron, pine, and juniper along the way. Further on from Pangbuche is tree barren land where we will have stunning views of all surrounding majesty. Upon reaching Dingboche we will spend a full day of rest to provide adequate acclimatization to the lofty elevation. From there we continue our climb to Thukla. We will make our last push on the trail through the rocky moraines and glaciers until we reach the base camp.
