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.

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.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is a fantastic once in a lifetime experience. You need to both physically and mentally prepare yourself for the journey but it's definitely worth it! The views are spectacular, guides and porters are great, and you also get to learn a bit about Nepalese culture on the way. The accommodation is basic and the food gets a bit repetitive in the tea houses, but if you hire a decent sleeping bag (and buy a liner) and take some extra snacks with you you'll be fine! Also make sure you have a good buffer at the end of the trip - flight cancellations to/from Lukla are common due to weather (clouds) and you may need to extend your stay by several days.
