This outstanding trek to the base camp of the world's highest mountain will take you through the lush valleys of Sagarmatha National Park, allowing you time to explore its villages and monasteries. Eight of the world's fourteen peaks that exceed 8,000m in height are situated in the Nepalese Himalayas. The highest of them all, standing at 8,848m, is Mt. Everest.

Your trekking adventure begins at Lukla, where you will trek to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar. You will have plenty of time to acclimatise to the altitude, following the trail across numerous rivers. Your trek leads gradually uphill from Thyangboche, where you will reach a highpoint at Kalapathar (5,545m) with breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and glaciers including Mt. Everest. Having completed the challenge, you will have the chance to explore the city of Kathmandu and its many temples and bazaars.
