Everest Base Camp Trek
Everest base camp trek provides you great opportunity to have unique experience. If you have ever longed to set eyes on our highest summit then this exciting trek in the Everest region gives you the opportunity to fulfill a dream, while taking in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Himalaya. As home to the Sherpas and the site of Mount Everest, Lhotse and Cho Oyu - three of the world's seven highest mountains - the Khumbu region of Nepal is unquestionably the most popular place for trekking in the Himalayas. Whilst most of us can only dream of summiting this mighty mountain, this stunning 16 day Everest trek allows us to become seduced by the myths and excitement of Mount Everest and the dynamic region of the Sherpa people.
We will have the opportunity to explore its lower majesty. Along the way, we will witness ancient Tibetan Buddhism as we visit and learn and become inspired from our guides. This will be a journey to sacred regions, offering a lifetime of impressions and reflections. Days are nothing short of breath-taking while we walk amidst the Himalayan giants to the jingle of yak bells. Join us on this spectacular trekking challenge, offering the most incredible mountain views in the world!
