  • an inn that was used for scientific experiment 

Our comprehensive Everest Base Camp trekking package is designed to provide you with various unique experiences, including visiting the rarely-visited Ama Dablam Base Camp and following in the footsteps of renowned climbing parties.

The journey begins by trekking through Sherpa country, passing by potato and vegetable fields, and immersing yourself in the vibrant local villages. As you ascend, you’ll leave the lush greenery behind and enter the stark, yet breathtaking, alpine environment above the tree line.

One of the highlights along the way is the incredible Thyangboche Monastery, situated amidst the backdrop of Ama Dablam, Everest, and other majestic snow-capped peaks. This sacred site offers a serene ambience and stunning panoramic views that are truly captivating.

Our itinerary takes you to Everest Base Camp as the primary destination, where you can witness the remarkable base camp set against the towering Everest. However, for those who seek an extra challenge and wish to see the ultimate view of Mount Everest, there is also an opportunity to climb Kala Patthar (5,545m). From this vantage point, you’ll be rewarded with a breathtaking panorama of the majestic Everest and its surrounding peaks.

Our trekking route to Ama Dablam Base Camp offers a particular, less-frequented path. This unique detour allows you to experience the transition from the tree line to the high-altitude alpine forest and summer grazing pastures. Along the way, you’ll be treated to exceptional views of the Maha Langgur range, which are not visible from the main trail to Everest Base Camp.
By providing these additional experiences and opportunities for exploration, we aim to make your Everest Base Camp trek truly unforgettable, taking you off the beaten path and offering a comprehensive adventure in the heart of the Himalayas.
