Everest Base Camp
A 16 day trip flying into Kathmandu, Nepal and taking a short flight to Lukla where the trek starts. Following the footsteps of incredible historical mountaineers, we enjoy the beauty and spirit of the Himalaya whilst staying in tea houses and letting the excitement and anticipation of seeing Mt. Everest build amongst the group. Not only do we trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364m) which is where summit expeditions try their bid to summit the highest mountain on earth, but we also trek higher to the peak of Kala Patthar (5,545m.) At Kala Patthar we get a very special view of the South face of Mt. Everest and its top along with the surround mountain range littered with giant peaks and huge glaciers. A very special iconic trip which is full of fun, beauty and a feeling of happiness being in the mountains.
