Everest Base Camp Classic Trek

Everest Base Camp, Nepal
14 Days13 Nights

Event Overview

Considered to be one of the most iconic mountain trail treks in the world, the Everest Base Camp trek is in all its senses truly awe inspiring. As you ascend to the Himalayan range, following the scenic trail, you will get an insight into the life of the Sherpas as you walk through their quiet villages, Buddhist monasteries and small locally owned and run tea houses. As you walk on the stony trails of Nepal’s Himalayas, absorb the colorful landscapes, alpine forest, raging waterfalls with the breath-taking view of great mountains. A great pick for an adventure tour in Nepal, this trek is a good challenge so a good level of fitness is necessary for those planning on treading the EBC trek. The average age of the trekker must be above 14 years and it is desirable to have prior trekking experience.
