Everest Base Camp trek, Nepal

Written By Admin

This trek to Everest Base Camp has been designed to offer something uniquely different from what other trekking companies offer by including a trip up to the Base Camp of the most beautiful mountain in this region – Amadablam. The base camp of Amadablam is rarely visited by trekkers. The hike up to Amadablam base camp provides the opportunity to walk from the treeline to high altitude alpine forest and the summer pastures with stunning views of the Maha Langgur range not seen from the main trail to Everest Base Camp. This trek has also been planned to bypass the very popular and often crowded Thyanboche monastery area, staying at the superb Pangboche with the intention of bringing some business to the lodge owners there to have some income for a change.

The highest mountain peak of all of them is Mount Everest. Standing at 8,850metres its imposing majesty has inspired awe and wonder in those who live beneath it, those that have read about it and those who have simply seen pictures of it. This Everest Base Camp trek is no exception, following in the footsteps of the great climbing parties. We trek through Sherpa country past fields and villages before the hard work begins as we climb up to Namche Bazaar. Above the treeline the scenery is stark but spectacular. The incredible monastery at Thyangboche is wonderfully set against the backdrop of Ama Dablam, Everest and other snow-capped peaks.

Over the years whilst leading treks in the Himalayas, we have built up a strong relationship with the lodge-owners, such that the owners of these lodges allow our Trekking Chefs to prepare our special dishes on some special days to pamper you and relish the taste. Finally, your comfort and safety are at the forefront in our treks, particularly at high altitude. Our leaders have comprehensive first aid training and equipment.
