Have you ever dreamed of seeing Mt Everest? This classic trek to Everest Base Camp is accessible to anyone who exercises or is a regular walker. Trekking via the Khumbu Valley offers you the chance to see all the famous mountains of the Khumbu – Lhotse, Nuptse, the shapely Ama Dablam and, of course, Mount Everest itself, the highest of them all. Setting off from the mountain airstrip at Lukla, you have time to explore the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar and the monasteries of Pangboche and Tengboche.
We offer 3 treks that go to Everest Base Camp:
Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar – the relaxed itinerary
This trek also includes an extra contingency day to help cope with any problems encountered with acclimatisation, weather or flight delays. We consider this extra day to be very important. For any problems encountered with flights, baggage delays etc we have also scheduled a complete day in Kathmandu at the start and the end of the trek. Usually these days in Kathmandu can be spent exploring this fascinating city. However, on the occasions when bags are delayed or flight problems occur, we are sure you will be particularly glad that these days have been built into the itinerary.
Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar – the 2-week itinerary
This is for those of you who want to get to Everest Base Camp, but your boss doesn’t share your passion. If you are short of annual leave, this is for you!
Everest Base Camp and the Sacred Lakes of Gokyo
A longer, harder route which spends longer at high altitude, and which takes in Sacred Lakes of Gokyo, spectacular views of Everest and surrounding peaks from Gokyo Ri, and which crosses the Cho La.
Why book with your Everest Base Camp trek with trekMountains?
All our treks to Everest Base Camp allow you 2 nights at Gorak Shep – the highest overnight spot for trekkers on this route. This means that you have 2 days, plenty of time, to devote to spending time both at Kala Pattar (which offers the best close-up views of Mt Everest itself), and also at Everest Base Camp. In our opinion, itineraries that only offer 1 night at Gorak Shep are just too rushed for the majority of trekkers to accomplish what is for most, their dream of seeing Everest and of also standing the at Everest Base Camp, looking up from the Khumbu Icefall to this majestic mountain of legends.
Acclimatisation is very important, both for your safety and for your enjoyment of the trek. We therefore have included acclimatisation days at Namche and at Pheriche.
