The Trek To Everest Base Camp
"The journey to Mt Everest Base Camp was nothing short of spectacular. It was exhausting, emotional, and unlike anything I had ever done. After a few days trekking through the Himalayas, it became very clear that Base Camp was no joke.
It was such an amazing experience with our Active Adventures crew. If you have the chance, I highly recommend it." - Gareth Leonard
EBC Everest Base Camp Trek
- 19 Days
We invite you to join us for one of our most incredible journeys, and certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, to reach Everest Base Camp. Retrace the footsteps of the world’s greatest mountaineers to the starting point of climbs to the highest peak on Earth. We’ll begin our journey in Kathmandu, Nepal’s bustling and colourful capital city, before taking a short flight to Lukla, high in the Himalayas, the gateway to the Solu Khumbu region and the starting point for our trek to Everest Base Camp.
Needless to say, the scenery is mind blowing – no matter which way you look, you’ll be staring straight at another towering snow-capped peak or jagged ridgeline. On this trip, we’ll hike through deep river gorges and forests, ascend high ridges and wide open valleys and visit remote Buddhist monasteries in the most improbable locations. The rewards of this trek go beyond simply reaching Everest Base Camp or seeing Mt Everest from the summit of Kala Patthar; what makes this trip really special is the sense of achievement you’ll get from trekking to such an incredibly high and remote area and the new perspectives from the people – both locals and other travellers – you’ll meet along the way.
If you'd prefer to trek at lower altitudes and still see Mt Everest, we recommend checking out our ‘Khumbu’ trip. Please get in touch with us if you’d like to chat about the various options.
