Everest Base Camp Trek - 14 Days

Everest Base Camp Trek gives you an opportunity to visit some of the high-altitude destinations that only a handful of world’s population ever gets to visit. Following the footsteps of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, trek along the foothills of Himalayan mountains including the world’s highest, Mount Everest (8,848 m). Stand beneath their massive shadows and feel humbled. En route experience Sherpa hospitality and culture, Buddhist spiritualism (the trails are littered with mani stones, chortens and colorful prayer flags) and amazing mountain scenery.

NOTE: The Lukla flights to and from Kathmandu have been shifted to Manthali Airport, Ramechhap district due to heavy air traffic during peak trekking season (Mar, Apr, May, Oct, Nov). But, if we receive any updates, we will let you know as soon as possible. An extra cost would be applicable if airlines do not provide any shuttle services or if you want to take a private vehicle instead of the shared ride provided by the airlines.
