Mount Everest typically has two sides to climb – the south & the North. The North side Base camp falls in Tibet (China’s Jurisdiction) & the south side Base camp in Nepal. Our classic 16 day Everest base camp trek is up to the Base camp of the South Side of Mt. Everest and back. Our entry & exit for the South side Base Camp trek is from Kathmandu (Nepal). The 16 day itinerary up to 5400 mts (approx. 18000 feet) is very creatively designed to capture Nepal’s beauty , people & Culture in the shortest period of time.

This trek into the Everest region is strenuous but does not require that you have any previous trekking or mountaineering experience. It does not require any technical experience; only that you be in good physical conditioning and be able to hike for 4-6 hours over hilly terrain with a light day pack. Good cardio-vascular conditioning and muscles that are used to hiking will make your trip much more enjoyable. Our goal is to climb Kala Patar at 18,700 feet, and walk on broken glacial moraine all the way into Base Camp, at 17,500 feet. You will spend 12 days in a land where life is simple, trails are steep and the air is thin. Begin training today if you want to get the most from this trip
