Tour overview

Everest Base Camp Trek-13 days we experience astounding mountain views, get glimpses of the life of the world famous mountain climbers ( Sherpa’s), cross the threshold Sagar Matha National Park, a world heritage site and tour high altitude Buddhist monasteries. Trekking to the Everest Base Camp of Nepal also provides us an opportunity to embark on an epic journey that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set off to in 1953. Our Sherpa will guide us to the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain, Everest on an adventurous trek that also includes climbing Kalapathar to admire the panoramic views of Everest and other Himalayas. Nothing beats the thrill and sense of achievement that grips hikers on seeing the power and grace of the mighty mountain up close.

The 13-day Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary is designed for beginner trekkers who are in good health with average physical fitness. The plenty distance covered between daily itineraries, steady gain of altitude and separate rest days ensures that we are properly acclimatized to fully enjoy our trek to the Everest base camp. But, if you wish to take up a bigger challenge offered by our agency, NIMA ECO TREK and “stay off the beaten path”, then Everest Base Camp Trek via Ghokyo Lakes – 19 Days would be ideal. Another option for experienced trekkers with limited time would be Everest Base Camp Short Trek – 13Days
