Everest Base Camp Trek

We fly to Lukla and begin trekking through the land of the legendary Sherpas into the Sagarmatha (Everest) national park.

The Everest Base Camp Trek takes one to the foothills of the mightiest of the mountains in the world. Enroute, traverse through rhododendron and pine forests, rivers, Sherpa villages and Buddhist Monasteries from temperate to snow line regions. The Himalayas are best seen on this trek as one traces the main route through the Khumbu region from the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar. Trekkers get a close view of the world’s greatest mountains, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Thamserku, Tawache and others

Since the successful ascent of Everest the Khumbu region has enjoyed the international attention. We will follow the footsteps of Tenzing Norgay, Hillary, Bonnington and Messner. We follow the classic trail to Namche bazaar, Khumjung, Pangboche and Lobuche to the Everest Base Camp and go on to Kalapathar. From Tengboche to Pangboche (3,985m) th e trail rises through meadows where graze yak. After touring the monastery we set out and cross the Lobuche Khola to arrive at Pheriche. After crossing the moraines of the Changri Shar Glacier, we reach the sandy plain of Gorakshep. Then we climb up amongst large boulders to the broad summit of Kalapathar (5,545m), which offers the best view of Everest and Khumbu Glacier.

Whether it may be called Everest, Sagarmatha or Chomolungma, the highest peak of this planet is stunning to behold. The trek will end at Syangaboche or Lukla and fly out to Katmandu.

The trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar is a wonderful experience. The scenery, people and the organisation of the trek are all superb. The camps and the food are great and the trek is challenging but achievable with reasonable fitness. The World Expedition crew were very professional and great company, and always concerned about our enjoyment and welfare.Berents Manly, New Zealand
