The Everest Base Camp is the trekking world’s great prize, and its grandest and most beautiful destination. This adventure leads you through the region highlighted by four of the world's six tallest peaks – Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu – that crown the towering ridges of the forbidding Himalayas. The experience of walking among these giants, and their purity and spirituality, is something we will never forget in our lifetimes.
Just as important, trekking to the Everest Base Camp is also to experience the daily life and culture of Buddhist Sherpa people, the region’s legendary mountaineers, and explore the Himalayan flora and fauna. We will see the fluttering Buddhist prayer flags and beautifully-carved mani stones along the trails and Sherpa villages. We will visit several Buddhist monasteries, including the most prominent at Tengboche.
Our Everest Base Camp trek is paced deliberately and is at times leisurely, allowing proper acclimatization and the highest chances for success.
