+ Travel Description

"The Everest Base Camp Trek is all about Mt. Everest " !!  Huh ...  No..  Not at all.. !! Okay, so lets talk about it..

The Everest Base Camp Trek definitely offers stunning views of Mount Everest.  On this trek, you do not just view the classic mountain from a distance, but you trek upto its base camp from where lots of mountaineers from different parts of the World, take their first steps on the mountain to reach its summit. Walking the trails through Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorakshep and then to Everest Base Camp, this is for sure a trek you must do to gift yourself an experience for a lifetime !! Tough the Everest Base Camp Trek is focused around Mt. Everest, but its not just about it. Its about so many other unique experiences you go through on the trek as well !! 

Walking on the legendary footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to the base camp of the highest mountain in the World - Mount Everest 8850 meters is an experience in itself. To live the true spirits on that specific line, you can rather start this trek from Jiri, and not Lukla, as when they had trekked to the Everest Base Camp, there were no airports by the name of Tenzng Hillary Airport in Lukla. Few hardcore trekkers still do this trek from Jiri and return via Jiri. However, currently the Government in Nepal is on plan to connect Lukla easily by road from Jiri and onwards. The road-head now gets closer and can be driven till Salleri. Once thats complete, we can definitely get off with the Lukla Flight Inconsistencies Problem

Simple Life Lessons From a Sherpa -  While this trek is about the mighty Mt. Everest, its also about experiencing the always joyful, jolly and smiling Sherpas - one of the hardest human beings known on the planet. Isn't it an awesome realization to conclude that one of the Hardest people in the World are also one of the Happiest people on Earth. Yes, they are, just because they are very simple and the value of simplicity has no alternative !! The Everest Base Camp trek is also about experiencing the Sherpas, their way of life, their deep trust and faith in the peaceful preaching of Lord Buddha, their hospitality, elegance in the mountains, and so many other things. Here, its a chance to be inspired by them. You will definitely take back fond memories of them.

Summit of Kalapatthar 5550 meters - On this trek we also summit the famous and strategic Kalapatthar. The truth is, Mt. Everest is not clearly viewed from the Everest Base Camp and is blocked. So a climb to Kalapatthar is much desired which offers grands views all round. The views from the top can't just be spoken in few words. From Kalapatthar you get to witness the grand vista of the tallest mountains in the world. At 5554 meters, this is also the highest point of the trek. Views of Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse during sunrise or sunset will be to your soul's contentment.

Experiencing The Most Turbulent Flights Ever ! The flight to Lukla is one of the thrilling experiences of the trek to the Kumbhu region. Experience one of World's most dangerous and exciting flight to board in the World.

A grand Panorama of many mesmerizing peaks of the Kumbhu region - While this trek is about Mt. Everest, the other elegant peaks are great to see as well !! On this trek, also witness the grand panoramas of the snow cladded and mesmerizing peaks in the Nepal Himalayas. Apart from the views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kusum Kangri, Kang Tega, Tobuche, Lobuche, Cholatse, Pumori, Nirekha, Machermo, Khungde, Kongde, and lots of other peaks add to a beautiful experience.

Each one of them bring lots of on-field experience in the Himalayas to Himalayan High. Being sincere students of the same sport itself, we understand and believe-in, the importance of safety on such adventures in the remote corners of the Himalayas.

Standard Safety Gears that we always carry or provide on our treks are:


On Summit treks above 6000 meters or treacherous treks in raw terrain:

  • helmet,
  • walking ice axe,
  • ascendors and descenders,
  • harness and locking carabiners,

Safety Gaiters and Ice Traction crampons are always provided which has many times proved to boost confidence of an amature trekker or has saved experienced trekker from a casual slip and fall. Most importantly, we trek in Small Groups increasing safety and success on summits as well. Infact, our summit success ratio over 6000 meter peaks is envied by many. Everything is a result of a well planed, safe trek. From food to sleep-comfort to safety.

Finally, In all of our treks , we pay attention to and breed the culture of Positive Attitude. We teach, to motivate and boost, the intrinsic sense of adventure inherent in a human being - be it for survival, adaptation with the unknown environment with excellence, possessing the heart that cares for the Ecology, and a Mind that likes winning over the challenges - Be it Life, or the Mountains..

INTERNATIONAL GUESTS: Trek cost for foreigners is slightly higher than the cost for our Indian guests, mainly due to higher permit fee applicable for admission to National Parks or protected forest areas. Sometimes, it may be higher due to local crew wages and other specific arrangements we make to ensure a safe, comfortable and enriching travel experience in India. However, we absolutely DO NOT 'hyper-charge' our International guests ever and at the same time, ensure that we meet all the standards for highly qualified trek leaders and guides, safety, medical preparation, evacuation strategy, rescue arrangements, eco-sensitive travel, high value knowledge sharing about the area and customs of the locals.
PRIVATE GROUPS: We love to trek in smaller private groups as we believe that it gives the best ambience to experience the Himalayan spirituality, serenity, solitude and rawness. Small private groups are also eco friendly, safe, easy to manage and more caring towards each other. Most importantly, private groups are more focused towards their objective, specially for difficult treks above 6000 meters. They can be customized to suit your needs. On the other hand, they cost little more due to more dedicated resources. We specialize in arranging customized private groups catering to your specific needs. Contact us to request a private group for your team.

After enjoying the view, we then climb up steeply along the Changri Glacier. There we get the first sight of Kala Patthar beneath Pumori. Gorak Shep is a place where you are surrounded by snow cladded mountains all round, including the top of the world - Mt. Everest.

The dusk view from Kala Patthar is more honorable than the dawn view, so it is proposed to visit Kala Patthar today amid nightfall. As the setting sun's beams strike the snow topped mountains the subsequent view is incredible.

We begin well in time post lunch to get the sensational perspectives of the surrounding view from Kala Patthar seeing the last light of the day reflecting on Mount Everest. Recognizable peaks, to the likes of Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse tower toward the east even as Everest uncovers itself between the west shoulder peak and Nuptse. Amid the climb to Kala Patthar, we rest multiple times to catch for some breath as it is a demanding climb, and also to capture few extraordinary perspectives of the mountains.

After a strenuous climb for some hours, we reach Kala Patthar. We scramble few rough patches and reach the summit set apart by cairns and prayer flags. As we are on the top, we enjoy some of the most unimaginable Himalayan Panorama, meandering relentlessly between one massif and then onto the next. We take the greatest number of pictures as we can and bring seep in the perspective - a moment to last lifetime.

We return to rest at Gorakshep tonight. We will be visiting the Everest Base Camp tomorrow..  so we sleep excited !!
