The trek to Mt. Everest
Base Camp continues to be one of our
most rewarding journeys. You will have a
day to explore the exotic city of
Kathmandu before flying into the remote
mountain town of Lukla (9,350 feet) to
begin our trek into the Khumbu region of
the Himalayas. The views of the
Himalayan mountains from Lukla on a
clear day are breathtaking.
We follow an ancient route that will
take us through tiny villages, across
high mountain passes, and through remote
valleys, villages, and monasteries. The
views grow even more spectacular as we
venture up the Dudh Kosi River to Namche
Bazaar, the gateway to the Khumbu region
at 11,300 feet. We will spend a night
next to the Thyangboche monastery
(12,887 feet), where you will be
rewarded with spectacular views of Ama
Dablam, Mt. Everest, and Lhotse.
A non-technical climb of Kala Pattar
(18,450 feet) highlights the truly
spectacular panorama of Sagamartha (Mt.
Everest), the Mother Goddess of the
World (29,028 feet), and Lhotse (27,560
Spending the better part of two days at
Everest Base Camp will give us plenty of
time for exploring the base of the
tallest mountain in the world!
The return trek continues to delight
adventurous souls with more spectacular
mountain views, lush forested valleys,
and opportunities to learn about the
Nepalese religion and culture.
