|When the trails of Nepal were opened, Everest Base Camp became the premier goal for many adventure trekkers. This stunning trek visits both the base camp and Kala Patar (5545m), a magnificent vantage point to see Mount Everest.
After exploring the temples, shrines & bazaars of Kathmandu, we take an exciting mountain flight to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region. We trek north through pine forest to the bustling Sherpa 'capital', Namche Bazaar, form where we head to the mafnificent Thyangboche Monastery. Here, in the shadow of the Everest massif and Ama Dablam, and surrounded by mani walls, chortens and prayer flags, our stay is one of the highlights of the trek.
The alpine scenery becomes more rugged as we climb above the tree line to reach Pheriche for further acclimatisation and exploration. It is then a steady ascent, following glacial moraines, to Lobuje and Gorak Shep. From here we ascend to the summit of Kala Patar for brilliant views of Everest and a breathtaking 360-degree panorama of the world's highest mountains. We then trek to the historic site of Everest Base Camp before returning to Lobuje and start our journey back.
