Conquer the ultimate mountain adventure to Everest Base Camp
Got your trekking pants on? Good. You'll need them for this adventure of a lifetime trekking in Nepal to Everest Base Camp. While this is a trekking trip, you'll also check out Namche Bazaar, rest in Nepalese teahouses, learn about the traditions and cultures of the famous Sherpa and spend time in Kathmandu. Start in Lukla, fix your gaze on old Everest and make the ultimate trek all the way to the foot of the world's highest mountain.
In case of weather conditions leading to cancellations or delays in flights, this trip will operate on an alternate itinerary. Please see Day 1 of the itinerary for more details.
You can't help but fall in love with Nepal, it's prayer flags, spicy chai, sacred cows, momos and tongba. Find this all in legendary Kathmandu.
No big deal, just the highest mountain in the world. Just the number one destination for the adventurer on Earth. Take a 15-day trek to the foot of mighty Everest and make the ultimate mountain memory.
Who says a plane ride can't be an attraction? Take the flight of your life, face pressed up against the glass, while you look down on the giants of the Himalayas, then touch down at the world’s most unique airport.
There are 12 days of strenuous trekking on this trip. You’ll be trekking up to 8 hours a day and at altitudes over 5500m at times. We can’t underestimate how important it is to be in excellent fitness and health, which means training in the lead up to your trip in order to be best prepared. Here's a guide for how to prepare: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/trekking-training-guide-tips/
The weather can be unpredictable in the Himalayas and every year a significant number of trips have flights to or from Lukla delayed or cancelled due to weather conditions. See Day 1 of the itinerary for the alternative plans should this happen on your trip.
The trekking lodges, known as teahouses, that we stay in on the trek are very simple with only basic facilities. Hot water may not always be available and may cost extra, as will access to electricity points for charging devices. Wifi is available at some locations, but connections may be poor.
What you need to take will vary depending on the season you are trekking in and it’s important to be prepared.

The Everest Base Camp trek is a very popular route and you will encounter many other trekkers and groups on your trip as you trek and at the teahouses. If you are after a trek that sees less travellers and spends more time trekking through communities rather than on a more established route, see our Tamang Heritage & Langtang Valley Trek (HNXV).
