When you think of traveling in the Himalayas of Nepal, do you think of the Everest Base Camp Trek? The mighty Mount Everest has been a household name since 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made history by reaching the mountain's 8,848-meter summit. But you don't have to be a mountaineer to enjoy all Everest offers.
Our seven-day trekking package is the perfect combination of challenge and reward, with steep staircases leading to splendid views of fertile valleys and high-altitude passes ascending to tremendous panoramas of the Himalayas.
Hiking for a week at a high elevation does demand a certain degree of physical strength and mental endurance. Still, with the help of your trusted guide—and your passion and determination—you'll soon reach Everest Base Camp for yourself.
It's easy to see why the Everest Base Camp Trek is one of Nepal's most celebrated hiking routes. As you trek through the rocky ravines, rhododendron forests, and the Khumbu region's steep mountain paths, you'll look at the highest mountains in the world.

You'll be fully surrounded by the stunning Himalayan giants known as Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, and Ama Dablam—to name just a few. And if you're a nature lover, you'll savor the opportunity to explore the mysterious Sagarmatha National Park on the way there, keeping your eyes peeled for rare birds and mammals.
Of course, the Everest Base Camp Trek is also famous as the home to the colorful communities of Khumbu's Sherpa inhabitants. These friendly villagers are renowned worldwide for their hospitality and incredible mountaineering skills.
