A typical trek that takes you through the soul of Sherpa country right to the foothills of the mighty Everest with trails that guide you across the splendid wonders of nature divine, into tranquil monasteries & majestic landscapes a trip that warms the heart!

Prepared for those wanting the 'classic' Everest Base Camp Trek where you find Sherpa culture, and chances to video-shoot some of the best landscapes in the world. The adventure also takes you through challenging terrain that includes glacial moraines and a steep climb up Kala Patthar where the adrenalin really goes into overdrive. As you hike up to EBC, expect some 3-4 hours hiking every day of the trip, but be prepared for some longer days on the return journey. A reasonable level of fitness is required. After exploring historical Kathmandu, we take a short flight to the hillside village of Lukla (2800m). As we move through the splendid mix and eye-catching vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, we trek to the Sherpa 'capital' of Namche Bazaar. This is an interesting, bustling and friendly town where amazingly, even at such a remote outpost & altitude, almost everything under the skies, related to the outside world for you to communicate from where you are can be found here. Namche was formerly a trading post between Nepal and Tibet.
We allow a day's acclimatization hereabouts and then move on to the beautiful Thyangboche Monastery. At this peaceful landmark, we find ourselves amongst the Mani walls, & prayer flags that whisper odes of prayers to the gods for the souls departed and chortens & then we soon realize we are in the shadows of the magnificent Everest massif and Ama Dablam, where the views are breathtakingly dumbfounding.
The trek from Thyangboche ascends slowly but steadily to Dingboche, Lobuche and finally Gorek Shep, advancing above the tree-line into more rugged and moonscape-like surroundings. Gorek Shep, at 5100m is in fact the highest point that we will lodge at, and we take our time to reach this altitude after getting well acclimatized. Naturally, we leave our packs at Gorek Shep to make an afternoon incursion to Everest Base Camp, passing amazing glacial forms and enjoying the triumph of having made it all the way! A trip that will surely go down into our dairies
