A trek to the Everest base camp is only suitable for experienced trekkers in good physical and mental capacity. It is suitable for trekkers who cannot afford to spend a long amount of time in the Himalayans but want to witness and me around the beautiful soaring white peaks of the Khumbu region since it only takes around 15 days approximately.

We will trek to beautiful Sherpa villages of Dingboche, Lobuche and mystic Chukung Valley. Trekkers will be able to witness the impressive civilization of Sherpa people in the harshest of terrains in the world. Trekkers will be also able to experience the rich culture and tradition of primarily Buddhist people in the region. We will also visit the historic monastery, the Tengboche Monastery (3,860m) the oldest monastery in the region and also the most well preserved.

At 5,380m from Everest Base Camp, trekkers can have the most amazing view of the eastern mountain. The main highlight of the trek will be magnificent view of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Pumori, Mt. Nuptse, and Mt. Makalu (8,463m) and other 150 mountains from the base camp and the famed viewpoint of Kalapaththar (5,555m).

Trekkers will also be able to trek through the mystic Sagarmatha National Park, the oldest national park in the country and witness exotic flora and faunas. While trekking through the region, trekkers can have sightings of exotic Himalayan animals like snow leopard, musk deer and red panda and birds like Danfe, Munal, and Kalij.
