The Everest Base Camp trek is one of Nepal's most popular treks and rightly so. Just imagine standing right at the foot of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Trekking to Everest  - known as Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma (Mother Goddess of the World) in Tibetan and Sherpa - has a long tradition. The trail is very well developed with comfortable and quirky tea houses along the way. Our trip leads you through the Solukhumbu region slowly up the valley, tracing the path of the successful British 1953 expedition all the way to the Everest base camp. Along the way, you will see some of the most impressive mountains like Cholatse and – the favorite of many visitors – Ama Dablam. If you feel up to it, you can hike up Kala Pathar (5,554m) which offers a magnificent panorama of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Nuptse and many more famous mountains as well as the Khumbu glacier.

With Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure, you'll not only be able to enjoy this unique landscape but you'll also have the chance to observe the traditions and rituals of the local Sherpa people. We put great emphasis on authetic experiences and our professional local guides will introduce you to their culture.

All our treks can be booked as private trips - no large, impersonal groups but small, individual experiences. Let Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure take you on your very own adventure trek to Mount Everest.

Highlights:

  • Admire Mount Everest and contemplate the history of its exploration
  • Stand on top of Kala Pathar and observe some of the highest mountains of the world
  • Discover the rich culture of Solukhumbu, the Sherpa heartland

Useful Information

Your Meals During the Trek

During long treks, good nutrition is very important. Beyond the practical aspects, delicious food enhances every holiday. At Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventures, we make sure you experience high quality, locally sourced dishes. While most guest houses offer a wide variety of food, we highly recommend the local options which are freshly prepared from locally farmed produce. Popular dishes include Tsampak (the roasted flour of ground barley) with butter and the salted Tibetan tea, Sengong (paste of buckwheat flour with hot water) with Himalaya Nettle or garlic soup which can be very invigorating after a long day. And for your carbs, some boiled chilly potatoes – if you can stand the heat. Please inform us of special dietary needs but keep in mind that the trek leads through remote areas and it will not always be possible to meet specific requirements. In this case you might have to bring suitable meals instead.

Individual vs Group Trips

Our trips are calculated as private treks. You will have your own guide and can determine your own itinerary. This gives you the most flexibility. If you, however, prefer to join a group, depending on dates and routes, this can be organized as well.  

Flexible Timing

The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla significantly reduces the journey time compared to the trek via Jiri (which we also offer). The flight is the shortest and most popular way of gaining access to the region but the mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable and sometimes even during the best part of the season, flights are delayed or postponed for one or more days. We can also arrange for a Heli charter from Kathmandu to Lukla instead but this adds significant extra cost. We highly recommend that you take potential delays into account and allow for an extra day in Kathmandu.
