Being so close to the highest mountain in the World will become an unforgettable and life altering experience
You will be able to reboot yourself, clear your mind and have a break from an everyday hustle and bustle of the city life
Every new adventure is unique and challenging in its own way, and you will have lots of unforgettable memories you can share with your friends and family
Every year over 35 000 people travel to Nepal looking for an amazing and unforgettable experience. Trekking to Everest Base Camp is not only a great possibility to experience a romance of being so close to the highest mountain in the world, but is also a good first step on the way to fulfilling your dream of climbing Chomolungma. You will hike through Sherpa villages, forests of fir, rhododendron and cross high suspension bridges. At some point you will visit Namche Bazaar - a colorful, bustling market. Climbing above the treeline, crossing alpine pastures, glacial moraine and sensational views of Everest will not leave you indifferent.
The high season on Everest Base Camp tour is almost all year round except for the summer which is Nepalese monsoon season and it’s highly unlikely that you will get any views. If you are not a big fan of the crowds you may consider booking your trip during winter - it will be much colder than during the high season, but still doable. The temperatures on this trek vary greatly and change rapidly, but if you bring appropriate clothing with you, you have nothing to worry about. You do not need to have any previous technical climbing experience or even any altitude experience. However, you do need to be physically fit to be able to complete the trek and to fully enjoy the journey.
I went to Everest base camp in April. The weather was great and I enjoyed my whole trek in a sunny weather. Naturally beautiful places and awesome people. If you have one last month to live just pack your bags and go trek to Everest Base Camp. It's awesome and I seriously want to go again and again this place.
The 17 Days trek to EBC was amazing. Our guide took great care of me and was very helpful throughout my whole trek. The service was beyond my expectations and accommodation was very comfortable even at such altitude. The views were outstanding, people were very friendly and this is one of the most do trek in your lifetime and I highly suggest this company.
It was an amazing experience. I always wanted to try out new adventures and Everest Base Camp trek was among them. Everything was perfectly managed by the highly energetic and wonderful team. I really had an amazing experience and can highly recommend this company to everyone.
This was a once in a lifetime adventure. The guides we had for our Trek were just simply amazing. Their experience and knowledge and looking after us all was just awesome! If you are concidering going to Everest BC, don't think twice - every day is like walking in a postcard.
Our tour and trekking guides are all well trained and educated. Each of them has gained their profession license from Government of Nepal to do tour and trekking guiding in Nepal. In addition to their professional license, we train them to provide magical, unique and unforgettable experiences to clients while trekking
As a part of sustainable tourism and benefitting the local people, we generally base our quotes on basic lodges. The rooms of the basic lodges are very simple and with limited amenities such as bed, mattresses and pillows and these basic lodges are operated by the owner themselves.
During the trekking, we prefer not to include meals in the package. We would like to give our trekkers the choice to order what they like and pay directly to the lodges or guest houses – instead of us making their meal plans.

There are no specific health requirements. However, you should consult your doctor for up-to-date information regarding vaccinations, high altitude medication and medications for any reasonably foreseeable illnesses whilst traveling in Nepal.

It is customary in Asia to tip service providers such as waiters, at approximately 10%, depending on the service. Tipping is expected - though not compulsory - and shows an expression of satisfaction with the people who have assisted you on your tour. Ask your guide for specific recommendations based on the circumstances and culture.
