“Everest is the ultimate goal of many people (bucket lists) and those who had already been there; they rate it as one of the best experiences of their lives.”

Everest Base camp Trek is an iconic trekking destination in the Himalayas and probably the most popular worldwide. Everest is located in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas and is the world's highest mountain at 8,848 meters above sea level located on the international border between China (Tibet Autonomous Region) and Nepal. Mount Everest is also well known as Sagarmatha in Nepali and as Chomolungma in Tibetan.

During this classic trek you will follow the footsteps of legendary mountaineers like Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and explore the Solu Khumbu region, a homeland of Sherpa people who are the most well known mountain guides in Nepal. You will discover Buddhist monuments, Sherpa stone stupas and carved mani walls (Tibetan) and decades old monasteries add to this beautiful Khumbu landscape. Lodges here range from standard to luxury and you will love the sherpa hospitality while exploring the top of the world.  

You will reach the highest altitude of 5,545 meters at Kala Patthar, 2 hours away from Gorakshep, which is one of the highlights of the trek and offers the best view of Everest.

Doing treks in the Himalayas of Nepal is a distinct cultural experience in a unique  majestic environment. Trekkers need to consider the following do’s and dont's.

Do’s
  • Do smile and greet the local people saying “Namaste” and “Tashidelek” to show respect.
  • Do walk in a group or keep a distance that you could see the person in front and the person behind you.
  • Do consult with your trekking guide before trying anything new during the trek.
  • Do ask questions of the guide about the next day trekking so that you can pack it in your small backpack because the bulk of your baggage will be carried by porters and will only be accessible in the evening.
  • Do give donations deposited in the donation box at the monastery in the trekking area  -if you feel inclined. This is entirely at your discretion. 
  • Do inform your trekking guide if you are not comfortable with your health while approaching higher altitudes.
Don’t
  • Don’t disrespect the local culture and beliefs - even if you are uncomfortable with it.
  • Don’t take photos of local people you encounter on your trek without their permission. Doing so may be offensive to them.
  • Don’t be offended if local people stare at you. It is because they are surprised to see you. It is not their intention to offend you.
  • Don’t expect too many facilities in the trekking areas. Most places provide you only the basic facilities - but in a warm environment.
  • Don’t harm wild animals, birds and plants during the trek and take a global perspective and responsibility in saving and preserving this unique environment.
  • Don’t give money to children and beggars as it encourages them and they become a nuisance to fellow trekkers.
