Everest Base Camp Trek
The seduction of a trek to Everest base camp has long been known to travelers, climbers and adventurers. Immersed in the peaceful world of Tibetan Buddhism, and framed by the majestic Himalayas, this Nepalese trek offers more than just a walking holiday; it is for many a pilgrimage to the bottom of the highest mountain in the world, in a remarkable country which will leave you with vivid memories of the people who live there.
The total distance covered throughout an Everest Base Camp trek is approximately 92km. Every day the trek starts after breakfast at about 8.30 am and there are many opportunities to stop and take photos, or have a cup of tea. The pace is slow and the itinerary allows for acclimatization and also rest days. At the start of the trek the distances are short but there are hills aplenty, and higher the distances increase but the gradient is more consistent and even.
The Everest base camp trek is a feasible goal for most fit hill walkers. The paths are well trodden, they are the highways and byways of the Sherpa people, so you find yourself passing through many villages and getting up close with the culture. The average group size is ten and you will have Sherpa guides and a team of porters to assist you all the way there. Accommodation is in comfortable lodges which provide a wide range of western and Nepalese food. Our programme allows you to choose freely from an a la carte menu.
