Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest, mountaineering's ultimate prize, has seen many a moment of triumphs and tragedies in mountaineering history. The chance to stand before the highest mountain in the world is the dream for many people, non-mountaineers especially. This trek to the Khumbu region in the eastern part of Nepal brings us face to face with many amazing mountains, including the isolated and magnificently chiseled Ama Dablam and double-summited Kangtega, whose great ice wall rears above famous Tengboche Monastery, spiritual center of the Khumbu.

After Annapurna, this is the most popular destination for adventure mountain trekkers. The trails through the Sagarmartha National Park are dotted with intricately-carved mani on the stones and on the rock wall and the multi-hued prayer flags singing prayers to heaven with every breeze. The warmth and hospitality extended by the famous mountain inhabitants of this region, the Sherpas, adds a further dimension to our experience of Nepal. In between there will be plenty of time to enjoy and experience the culture of the Sherpas, visit ancient monasteries and learn the Lamaistic Buddhism influence on the lives of Sherpa people and understand the spiritual esteem in which the Sherpa people hold this great mountain.
