Everest Base Camp Trek
give us enormous pleasure to introduce you to an
astounding view of the world's highest peak. Perhaps in
viewing Everest in this way, you will be fulfilling a
long held desire. Certainly you will never be quite the
same again. Ever since the days of early climbing
expeditions, this 8,848m mountain has had a lure of its
own, drawing climbers to scale it and trekkers to gaze
on its icy faces. It is easy to see why the trek to the
base camp of Mount Everest has become one of the most
popular routes in Nepal. We start our trek from Lukla
after a 30 minute flight from Kathmandu. When we land at
that tiny airstrip, the adventure really begins. During
trekking, we spend several days moving through the
homelands of the Sherpa people, and will see Buddhist
and close up
views of Mt. Everest and neighboring Ama Dablam, considered by
many to be among the most beautiful mountains in Nepal. We
spend 2 nights at Namche Bazaar, the bustling market town in
the heart of Sherpa country, and at Pheriche see a cluster of
houses set among the high summer grazing pastures of the
region. We spend the time in Namche Bazaar exploring and
acclimatizing, which is an important factor in your enjoyment
of the trek. People who have fully acclimatized may trek to
the Everest Base Camp but without doubt, for many people the
main highlight will be the magnificent views which unfold from
the summit of Kalapathar - the extraordinary ice sculptures of
the Khumbu Glacier, Nuptse and the south-west face of Everest
