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.

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.
