This historic trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364m 17,598ft) is one of the most famous expeditions in the world. Mt Everest (8,848m), the world’s highest mountain is known as Sagarmatha “sky head” in Nepalese and Chomolungma, and “the mother goddess of the earth” in Tibetan.
The scenery is truly breathtaking with mixed forest, flower-filled meadows, glaciers, rivers and spectacular mountainous panoramas throughout. Located in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal, we go through Sherpa villages, bazaars and Buddhist monasteries. Trekkers will leave with a great appreciation of the Sherpa way of life, their mountain culture, and unique traditions.
Our itinerary includes 12 days of trekking and has been designed with acclimatisation in mind. This makes the trip more enjoyable and gives everyone the best possible chance of reaching Everest Base Camp.
We also spend two nights in Kathmandu and enjoy time to explore the city. This unforgettable adventure is perfect for those looking for a challenging trek to the foot of the world’s highest mountain.
We did a talk in the Great Outdoors in Dublin about our Everest Base Camp Trek. We also have a slight variation of this trek that includes Island Peak after we reach Everest Base Camp which is included in this video too.
