The Everest Base Camp Trek is an adventure of a lifetime journey that will bring you up to the base of the highest mountain in the world. Begin in the city of Kathmandu where you will be acclimatizing. Discover the rich cultural heritage and the Nepalis reverence for religion at sites like Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, and Patan Durbar Square - historical monuments that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As you begin your hike up to the base camp, astounding views of the Himalayan mountains can be seen at every turn of trek, and your adrenaline will be set pounding as you cross bridges suspended over chasms so deep it seems bottomless. Trek into the land of the Sherpas, and be inspired by stories of famous Sherpas and their fearless spirit.
Very few experiences can be as magical as observing the break of dawn from Kala Patthar at 5,550 metres, where the rising sun bathes the snow-covered Mount Everest and emerald valleys with its golden glow. This is truly a destination in Nepal not to be missed!
