EVEREST BASE CAMP & KALA PATTHAR- 13 DAYS

The areas around Khumbu are commonly called as the Everest Region. It is also known as the home of Sherpa people and the mysterious Yeti. This trek comprises not only the Everest Base Camp but also Kalapatthar from where you can witness the stunning view of Mt. Everest, highest peak in the world.

The trek starts from Lukla where we reach by plane from Kathmandu. During the flight, you will have magnificent geographical views of snow capped high Himalayas, colorful flowered green hills, tiny settlements; river gorges etc....

The Everest Base Camp Trek is probably the most famous trek in the world. Our 17 days Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary goes right into the heart of the Himalaya; taking in the famous trading town of Namche Bazaar, the world's highest Buddhist monastery and Everest Base Camp itself, where Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set off on their epic journey in 1953.

The monastery is also significant because a decree from the Lama prohibits killing within the premises which is largely the reason why the Sagarmatha National Park is a refuge for a variety of endangered fauna.
