The trek to Mount Everest Base Camp continues to be one of our most rewarding journeys. You will have a day to explore the exotic city of Kathmandu before flying into the remote mountain town of Lukla (9,350 feet) to begin our trek into the Khumbu Region of the Himalayas. The views of the Himalayan mountains from Lukla on a clear day are breathtaking.
We follow an ancient route that will take us through tiny villages, across high mountain passes, and through remote valleys, villages, and monasteries. The views grow even more spectacular as we venture up the Dudh Kosi River to Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Khumbu region at 11,300 feet. We will spend a night next to the Thyangboche Monastery (12,887 feet), where you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Ama Dablam, Mount Everest, and Lhotse.
