Trip Overview

Climbing Mount Everest is the dream of every climber. They come a great deal closer to this dream in the truest sense of the word. On the first day of your adventure, experience the special charm of Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, before going uphill on the second day. You start your ascent from Lukla airport. The destination of your trekking trip is the base camp of Mount Everest. On the way to an altitude of 5,350 meters, simple cabins and traditional tea houses represent your accommodations. 12 days pass until you are back in the valley. From there, take a domestic flight back to Kathmandu, where you will spend two days exploring the many attractions and for my experience, Everest base camp trek is one of the best Trekking around the globe for amazing view with amazing People.

During spring, there will likely be expedition teams about to attempt the summit. The view of the Khumbu Icefall from Base Camp is spectacular. We return back to Gorak Shep for the night.

Day 10 – Morning hike up to Kala Patthar (5,555 m) & descend to Pheriche (4,200 m) – 7 hours

The ascent is demanding but the climber gets the most magnificent mountain panorama – Everest, the highest point on the planet at 8,848 m, towers directly ahead and on all sides loom the giants such as Nuptse, Pumori, Chagatse, Lhotse and countless others. We make a quick descent to Gorak Shep and have hot breakfast, and then trek down to Pheriche.
