Private Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek
Everest Base Camp Trekking is one of the world’s best treks, set amongst breathtaking high mountain sceneries.
Magnificent landscapes, imposing and prestigious peaks, tapering ridges and colourful Sherpa villages contribute to turning this trek into an unforgettable experience.
After flying from Kathmandu to Lukla (Tenzing-Hillary) airport, the route takes you through the high Khumbu Mountains before finally arriving at the foot of Everest. The starting point for all summit attempts, Everest Base Camp is situated on the Khumbu Glacier.
We ascend the Kala Pathar (5,554m) for one of the highlights of this trek and from here one gains a lifelong memory of an incredible panorama of Ama Dablam, Makalu, Nuptse, Lhotse and the majestic Everest, or Chomolungma (Mother Goddess of the World) in Sherpa language.
In Nepali, it is called Sagarmatha which has many meanings including Brow of the Ocean or Mother of the Universe. She is undeniably the greatest of all mountains, standing at 8,848m.
You will enjoy the impressive Tengboche Monastery (3,860m), an important Buddhist monastery, which has the largest Gompa in the Khumbu region. Built in 1923, it has been damaged by both earthquake and fire. It has subsequently been rebuilt with help from the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation and many other international supporters.
