Everest Base Camp Trek

  • Overview
  • Itinerary

Along the trek to Everest Base Camp you will find some of the world's most breathtaking scenery - in proximity to the 8,848 meter peak of Mt. Everest, known in Nepalese as Sagarmatha, you will discover why this region is called "the rooftop of the world". Trekking through the formidable homeland of the Sherpa to see the sunrise over Khumbu Glacier, Everest's peak viewed from the summit of Kala Patthar, and the sense of achievement one feels after completing this once in a lifetime journey make this trek an unforgettable experience. The Everest Base Camp trek is not to be taken lightheartedly - the amazing rewards this experience has to offer must be earned.
