Everest Base Camp Trek (14 days)

The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of our most popular walks and this superb itinerary has been developed to get the most of our time in the mountains. Our principal objective is to trek to Everest Base Camp, and then to make an adventurous day hike up the Khumbu Glacier to the Base Camp itself. We fly into the mountain airstrip at Lukla and trek north along the banks of the Dudh Kosi River. All along the route, colorful prayer flags, chortens and mani stones dot the landscape, and as a backdrop we have some of the most famous peaks in the Himalaya. Thamserku, Kang Tega and Kusum Kangru are all visible on our first full day of walking, at the end of which, we arrive at the Sherpa capital, the Namche Bazaar. From here on, our itinerary is structured to allow as much time as possible for acclimatization, and we will spend the next few days gaining height very gradually. Rest days are built into the programme at Namche and Pheriche to give everyone the opportunity to properly adjust to the higher altitudes. Peaks including Ama Dablam, Nuptse and Lhotse line our route, and as we continue to ascend through the small settlements at Lobuche and Gorak Shep, the scenery becomes even more impressive, with Pumori, Lingtren and Changtse all becoming visible.
This region is famous not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain but also for its Sherpa villages and monasteries with their virtually unchanged unique culture. Solu has received countless trekkers and mountaineers from all over the world. Solukhumbu has developed to a stage where many options are possible from a full-scale expedition with tents and porters to an independent trek using the local lodges. Sagarmatha National Park, established in 1976, covers much of this region. This fascinating land surrounded by high mountains is a real paradise for mountaineers & trekkers.
