Our carefully crafted Everest Base Camp Trek ensures proper acclimatization, allowing you to fully enjoy one of the world’s most stunning adventures and discover why this has become one of our most rewarding journeys and a Mountain Madness Classic, first developed over twenty five years ago by our founder Scott Fischer. While on the Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal you’ll stand face to face with Mount Everest, the “Goddess Mother of the Earth,” from the easily reached high-point of 18,513-foot Kala Pattar. On this journey of a lifetime, you’ll experience the base camp life of Mount Everest climbers, trek to the infamous Khumbu Icefall, marvel at the stunning views from Kala Pattar, and engage yourself with the friendly Sherpa people of Nepal.
You’ll be overtaken 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.
**May we suggest...** Join us in the fall and experience the alternative itinerary that takes you to the Everest Base Camp and the Gokyo Lakes or extend your trek to a more technical climb of Island Peak!
