Trek to Everest Base Camp

The trek to Everest Base Camp is without doubt one of the most famous in the world. It takes you into the heart of the Nepalese Himalaya, with awe-inspiring views of many of the world's highest and most beautiful mountains.  
You start your trip with a full day tour of the exotic Kathmandu valley. You will then fly in to the remote mountain town of Lukla (2865m) and begin your trek, following an ancient Sherpa trade route to the area's famous Namche Bazaar (3440m). Beyond it, you will find traditional villages, rhododendron forests, terraced fields, and summer pastures for yak grazing--before moving into the stark landscape of glaciers and ice. Our route will enable you to visit monasteries in the heart of Sherpa country, where you can observe the monks in their daily prayers. You’ll also hike out onto the Khumbu glacier to visit the iconic Everest Base Camp, where climbers following the steps of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay prepare for their summit attempts. You can stand at the foot of the Khumbu Icefall, where climbers begin their own odyssey. During climbing season (April/May), Himalayan Frontiers Nepal offers you the special opportunity to spend one night at Everest Base Camp before beginning your descent. Outside of climbing season, we will use the extra time to divert from the main trail for a stunning hike to an off-the-beaten-path village on an ancient trade route. You then return to Kathmandu for a day of shopping or rest.
