Everest Base Camp is a classic trek offering magnificent close up views of Everest and panoramic views from Kala Pathar. From the moment you step out onto the unimposing airstrip at Lukla, the sense of excitement and anticipation in the air is palpable. The classic trail to Everest Base Camp includes; cutting through bustling Sherpa villages and past colourful tea houses; across glistening rivers and up steep-sided valleys. It is like no other – not least since the trail will lead us to the highest mountain in the world.
This is a classic trek in the Everest region, starting with a spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Lukla from where we take the main trail into the heart of Sherpa country. On the way we pass through a number of villages, so there is a chance to see a little of the Sherpa way of life. Its market stalls, local ridge walks and breath-taking views make it an ideal spot to rest and acclimatise. The highlights of this Everst trek include Kala Pathar (5545m) for stunning views of the Khumbu Icefall, the South Face of Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and many more. You should bear in mind that achieving both of these goals requires good weather, excellent acclimatisation and a lot of stamina. Kala Pattar (5554m), is famous for its magnificent close up views of the Khumbu icefall and the SW face of Everest. It is an awe-inspiring place to stand, and is encompassed on all sides by a breath-taking 360° vista of peaks and glaciers.
