Everest Base Camp: What’s it Like?

It's like - amazing.

Everest Base Camp is rated as one of the world's greatest hikes and for good reason. Not only are you hiking on the iconic Mount Everest - the tallest peak on Earth, but the scenery is equally as grand. Nepal is truly one of the most unique and beautiful places you will ever visit.

On the trail, you sleep in the comfort of simple teahouses along the way (no camping). Eat hot, delicious, prepared meals everyday (no dehydrated, camp food). Our porters carry your belongings so all you need to carry is a small daypack and take in the views. The humble and friendly Sherpa people will make you feel at home with their warmth and hospitality. This is the ultimate hiking experience.

Your adventure begins in the bustling and vibrant city of Kathmandu.

To begin the trek, an expert pilot will fly you into Lukla, known as one of the most dangerous airports in the world.

Yield to the herds of yaks that share our path as they carry supplies between the villages.

Suspension bridges shorten our dayhikes by making for an easier, albeit more hair-raising route.

The trek leads us between many colorful villages that are void of any roads or vehicles.

Every night, you retire to your quarters for a good night's rest.

Choose from a variety of hot meals served at the teahouses.

Give the prayer wheels a turn as you pass to spread blessings during our journey into the Himalayas.

Enjoy the company of others on the paths and in the teahouses. They are like minded travelers with a love of the outdoors - just like you!

Be dazzled by the endless views. They are nothing short of breathtaking and it gets better and better everyday.

Our expert guides will lead you every step of the way.

Until finally we reach our destination - Everest Base Camp.

The trip takes 14 days. We begin at Lukla (8,713 feet) on day 2 and top out at Everest Base Camp (17,575 feet) on day 9, returning to Kathmandu on day 13.
