Everest Base Camp Trek


From your high point, the 18,450 foot Kala Pattar, you will stand face to face with Chomolungma - the Goddess Mother of the Earth.

You’ll be smitten by Nepal, a country of hospitable people, beautiful scenery, and a large variety of cultural traditions. This blend of outdoor adventure and cultural exploration is a great way to experience the Himalayan Mountains - the world’s most impressive mountains. 

Our carefully crafted itinerary ensures proper acclimatization, allowing you to fully enjoy one of the world’s great treks and the easy walk up Kala Pattar. You'll experience:


  • Base camp living, spend 2 nights at camp (on spring treks) and meet Everest climbers
  • The infamous Khumbu Icefall up close and personal
  • Stunning views from 18,000-foot Kala Pattar
  • Friendly Sherpa people
