Trek to Everest Base Camp

The name Everest conjures something exciting in us all. It stands for many things; human endeavour, adventure and achievement and although taking on the summit is reserved for an elite few, the Everest Base Camp trek is achievable for most who are relatively fit and determined to make it (you don’t have to be a marathon runner). If you fit in that category then a trekking holiday to Everest Base Camp is something you should not miss.
Our pace on trekking holidays is slow and steady, allowing you to enjoy the many cultural sights which are around every corner during your Everest trekking holiday. This also ensures you have the best chance of getting to the 5,365m Everest Base Camp. Altitude sickness is an unknown factor and most people’s biggest concern, but be assured our trekking days are designed around acclimatisation.
On arrival at Everest Base Camp it’ll be difficult to take that smile off your face, but don’t forget the journey there is just as exciting.
On our two adventure holidays to Everest Base Camp you arrive in the Khumbu Valley via plane, landing at the incredible Lukla airport in the foothills of the Himalaya. From here, on our Everest holidays, you’ll trek through lush forests and traverse v-shaped valleys with white water rivers flowing below. You’ll pass Buddhist prayer wheels and shrines, including the stunning Thyangboche Monastery on your descent and walk through many Nepalese villages, including Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital. As you ascend your surroundings become snow capped peaks; Ama Dablam is ever present and Sagarmatha, the locals name for Everest, comes in and out of view.
This Everest holiday will undoubtedly be one of your memorable achievements in life. We take hundreds of trekkers to Everest Base Camp every year. Let us organise everything; the teahouses, permits, flights, guides and porters, so you can just enjoy this stunning trek.
The best time to a trekking holiday to Everest base camp is pre and post monsoon season; from September to November & March to April. During the winter months of December to February, there is plenty of snow on the ground so it offers an extra challenge to the more adventurous.
