Event Overview

This ia an opportunity for all fit people to have a glimpse of this spectacular mountain range from very close quarters. You would love to have magnificent views of the Everest, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Khumbu Icefall, and Western Cwm. This trek to the base camp of the highest peak in the world is very famous and is the most frequented trekking route in the world.

It is not important whether or not George Mallory coined the immortal phrase: ‘Because it’s there’ when asked in 1923 why anyone would want to climb Mt. Everest. Since those days this name has caught on people’s imagination. In everybody’s mind there is a hidden urge to have a glimpse of this killer but still legendary mountain.

After the great survey for Indian subcontinent was started by British in 1808 lot of astonishing facts came to light. The whole survey was conducted for almost 60 years. In 1856 it was found that a mountain designated as ‘Peak XV’ standing on the border of Nepal and Tibet was actually the highest mountain in the world. Till 1865 this highest mountain was still called as the Peak XV (8,848 m. / 29,028 ft.). In 1865 it was named after Sir George Everest, who oversaw the initial great survey of India. The Chinese call it by the name Qumolangma or Chomolungma, meaning “Mother Goddess of the World”. Nepalese know this peak by the name of Sagarmatha. This year we at Add-venture India have created an opportunity for all fit people to have a glimpse of this spectacular mountain range from very close quarters. You would love to have magnificent views of the Everest, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Khumbu Icefall, and Western Cwm. This trek to the base camp of the highest peak in the world is very famous and is the most frequented trekking route in the world.

After checking into Hotel Vaishali or Hotel Shankar or a similar hotel in Kathmandu; we would take blessings from Pashupatinath. We would also visit the world heritage site of Patan Darbar Square. Then we would proceed by flight to Lukla, a very interesting experience! Lukla is the place from where we would actually hit the trail. We would walk along the rivers of Dudh Kosi and Bhote Kosi into the Khumbu region of Everest. The whole trek route would take us through very busy Sherpa towns, on very long, twisting paths, and rickety but still strong suspension bridges. On the way we would have glimpses of many high and mighty peaks of the great Himalayan range. After reaching Gorak Shep, we would see many memorial stones of the great mountaineers and Sherpas who led down their lives in their quest to climb the highest mountain in the world. After visiting the historic place of the Base camp we would climb the small hillock of Kala Pattar from where one would have magnificent views of the whole Everest region, Khumbu Icefall and Khumbu glacier area.
