Everest Base Camp treks & tours

The big daddy of them all, the world’s highest peak and the tallest order on many a bucket list: Mt Everest.

Of course, you don’t need to reach the summit of this iconic mountain to experience the essence of a real Himalayan adventure. Go trekking through the high passes above flame-red rhododendron forests and stunning alpine lakes and enjoy the chance to appreciate the jaw-dropping mountain scenery, as well as challenging yourself physically. Each of our treks is supported by an experienced crew, so you can let your feet do the talking and just focus on your end goal – Everest Base Camp.

Why choose us

Trekking experts

As owners of the largest inbound tour operator in Nepal, we have years of experience on the ground. Our English-speaking local leaders are more than just someone to make sure you don’t get lost on the trail; they are there to share their stories and insights about the culture and history of the region, too.

Safety first

Your safety is our number one priority. All of our leaders are trained in Advanced Wilderness First Aid and are qualified AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) specialists. Thanks to our specialised safety equipment and crew, our annual helicopter evacuation rescue rate is less than two per cent, well below the industry average.

Local matters

All of our guides, assistant guides and porters are local to the Everest region and experienced in their field. But they’re not only trekking experts, they are your key to connecting with the local people, food, landscape and culture. With plenty of stories and tips to share, you’ll feel like an adopted local in no time.

Porter care

We are committed to ensuring respectful and fair working conditions for all trekking porters. Any leaders that join Intrepid must start out as a porter, even if they have led for another company before. This ensures that all our leaders understand the important role a porter plays on a trek and the challenges of the job. Learn more about our Porter Policy here.

Inclusions

Our trips don’t only include our incredible crew but also all the safety gear required to help get you to Everest Base Camp safely. All accommodation and transport is included, plus a return flight to Lukla to get you to the start of the trek.

Sustainable Travel

We have a ‘bring in, bring out’ philosophy on our Base Camp treks, meaning any rubbish should be taken back to Kathmandu and disposed of there. Rubbish disposed of in villages along the trek has to be walked back to major hubs using porters or yaks, so the less we leave behind, the better.

Had an awesome experience doing base camp! We could not have done it without the help of Prem, Chun, Surya and Nims and all the porters. They went above and beyond to make this trip so memorable!

Everything was perfect. Thank you so much to our lead guide Raj and the assistants Ramesh, Mingmar, Rosan who made this trip unforgettable. They made a really great team, always there for us, helping with absolutely anything we needed. This trip would have not been as incredible without them.
