This Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary has been designed to offer the best experiences by adding the wellness factor. We are the first and so far the only trekking company that provides this service in the whole of the Himalayas.

We strive to do things uniquely different from what other trekking companies offer, by including a trip up to the rarely visited Ama Dablam Base Camp. We will follow in the footsteps of the great climbing parties; we trek through Sherpa country, past potato, vegetable fields, and villages before the hard work of the climb up to Namche Bazaar begins.

High above the treeline, the scenery gets stark but spectacular. The incredible monastery at Thyangboche’s setting against the backdrop of Ama Dablam, Everest and other snow-capped peaks is lovely.

The hike up to Amadablam base camp provides the opportunity to 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. We also grab this opportunity to climb Kala Pathar (5,545m) for the ultimate view of Mt. Everest (8,850m) before finally reaching the Everest Base Camp situated on the Khumbu Glacier.

Note – Flight to Lukla and back can be delayed or canceled due to poor visibility. We ask you to have a buffer days of few days and to have a few hundred dollars in case your flight to Lukla is affected, and a helicopter ride is needed to either fly in or out of Lukla.
