The Everest Region
We become aware of Mount Everest from a very young age. As children, we learn about ‘the world’s highest mountain’ – and although we struggle to grasp its true magnitude, the mere thought of Everest is enough to ignite our inquisitive nature and our sense of adventure. While actually climbing to the highest point on Earth remains a dream (for most!), trekking to Everest Base Camp ‘EBC’ is an achievable reality for many keen hikers.
The trail to Everest Base Camp is the ultimate bucket list hike. Along the way you’re exposed to staggering alpine vistas, a rich mountaineering lifestyle (both historic and present) and you’ll become immersed in the fascinating Sherpa culture. Arriving at Base Camp is an amazingly emotional experience - celebrating the success of your epic journey in the presence of the world’s highest peak, and paying homage to all who have successfully (and unsuccessfully) scaled it.
When you join our Everest Base Camp trek you’ll share the experience with a group of like-minded adventurers, a kiwi trip leader and a team of local Nepalese guides and porters. So go ahead, check out our 'EBC' itinerary, or for those who want the Everest experience at a slightly lower elevation, check out our ‘Khumbu’ trip.
