Everest Base Camp Trek 16 Days

Overview

Trip Profile: • 16 Day trip Ex-Ktm. • 11 Day Adventurous Trek to Kalapathar or Everest Base Camp • 5 Days in Kathmandu • Magnificent views of Everest & its neighbours

Your objective is to visit Everest Base Camp (5400m, 17575ft), scene of so many triumphs and tragedies, or, even more challenging, Kalapathar (5545m, 18193ft) with its superb views of Everest, the Khumbu Glacier - and the surrounding peaks. This is for those who have dreamed of seeing Everest close up.

Kathmandu & Phakding

After exploring the unique old city of Kathmandu, we fly to Lukla, an experience in itself, and enter the world of the Sherpas..

Dudh Kosi (River of Milk), Namche Bazaar

We walk alongside the Dudh Kosi up to memorable villages like Namche, the Sherpa capital. Visit holy Thyangboche Monastery, which sits on a high meadow in the lee of AmaDablam.

Journey to Kalapathar or Base Camp

The trail is ever upward, skirting formidable glaciers and neat Sherpa villages. The temperature drops and we are in a frozen world of stone houses, iced rivers and stunning beauty. On returning to Lukla after your mountain high, bid farewell to your gracious Sherpa hosts and set off on the spectacular flight back to Kathmandu. There is time to reflect on your adventure and explore this exotic city for yourself.
