Conquer the climb to Everest Base Camp trekking in Nepal
Take on the adventure of a lifetime trekking in Nepal to reach Everest Base Camp. First conquered by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, Everest has traditionally been the ultimate goal for mountaineers. Today hard-core trekkers seek the challenge of reaching the mountaineer's Base Camp. Flying in to Lukla, explore the mountains and valleys around the towering peak, rest in Nepalese teahouses, learn about the traditions and cultures of the famous Sherpa and spend time in exotic Kathmandu.

This was a trip of a life time, we will never forget our experience with Intrepid. The scenery was just incredible and although the walking was challenging we really enjoyed the trek. Our guides were very friendly and we learnt a lot about Nepal and the surrounding mountains as we walked the Everest Base Camp. We were very lucky with the weather as the sun shone every day.

The Everest Base Camp trek is not for the faint hearted or those who are not physically fit! It is, however, an absolutely mesmerising experience. Taking you through landscapes filled with trees and wildlife to a 5000m+ moon landscape, you'll feel ill and exhausted half the time. But, it's such a unique experience, I would recommend anyone with an interest in high altitude trekking to just go for it!
