Everest base camp hike

Let our team make this a memorable and value-added experience for you with the best Everest Base Camp trek. Your expert trek leader will fulfil your quest for knowledge about culture and history. At the same time, our trekking chef will serve you food that uses superfood ingredients to help you get the best nourishment to help you achieve this goal. These “Outside the box” experiences will help you achieve this bucket list adventure. 

We provide you with the best chance to make it to Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar with our added wellness factor, making this the best trekking experience. The itinerary has been designed to offer the best experiences by adding the wellness factor. We are the first and the only trekking company that provides this service throughout the Himalayas.

We strive to do things uniquely different from other trekking companies. We have chosen lodges with character yet are less busy, owned by exciting people, and located away from the villages’ bustling areas. You will stay at lodges whose owners 

  • were involved in mountaineering expeditions, 
  • has created a cultural museum, 
  • is in the Guinness book of world records; join this trek to find out who
  • an inn that was used for scientific experiment 

We include a trip up to the rarely visited Ama Dablam Base Camp. We will follow in the footsteps of great climbing parties. We will trek through Sherpa country, potato, vegetable fields, and villages before the hard work of the climb up to Namche Bazaar begins.

High above the tree line, the scenery gets stark but spectacular. The incredible Monastery at Thyangboche, set up against Ama Dablam, Everest, and other snow-capped peaks, is lovely.

The hike up to Amadablam base camp allows the walk from the treeline to high altitude alpine forest and the summer grazing pastures with beautiful views of the Maha Langgur range not seen from the main trail to Everest Base Camp.

We trek to Everest base camp first. However, we could also grab this opportunity to climb Kala Pathar (5,545m) for Mt. Everest’s ultimate view (8,850m) – if you are up for it.
