EVEREST BC TREKKING
The trek to Everest Base Camp is one of the most famous routes in the world offering thousands of people each year the chance to see the tallest mountain in the world with their own eyes.
26 March – 14 April 2021
An unforgettable journey
After one night in Phortse, we head out again and make our way to Pheriche where we will be spending two nights, giving us one full day here and a chance to walk up the nearby hill to continue our acclimatisation by spending some time at a higher altitude and then back to the lodge for lunch.
From Pheriche we have a long day ahead of us as we trek up to Lobuche, passing the memorial ground of many of the climbers lost to the mountain over the years. We will spend another two nights at Lobuche to allow our bodies to adapt and rest, offering another chance to do some walking in the hills around us.
After our stop here it’s Base Camp Day! Another fairly long day we will be walking through the valley for a quick stop in the last village on the route, Gorak Shep, before we take on the last 2 or 3 hours into Everest Base Camp and a well-deserved lunch. Once we are here, we have 4 days to see some of the rest of the camp, take a trip up the nearby Kalapattar for a fantastic view of Everest, and generally enjoy a bit of expedition life.
The journey back will see us walk from Base Camp to Pheriche, on to Pangboche and then on to Namche where we helicopter back to Kathmandu. It is possible to helicopter straight from Base Camp, but this is at extra cost and will be discussed at the time.
Throughout this trek we will be staying in the best quality lodges, handpicked for their facilities and hygiene, and we also ensure that our own cooks oversee the meals we eat in the lodges to keep everyone in the best health possible.
Himex has been running this trek for longer than almost anyone else out there, so you will be benefiting from our many years of experience perfecting the itinerary to give the best journey possible and maximise your chance to make it all the way; don’t forget, this is a fairly demanding hike at altitude which requires a level of fitness and dedication, but of course this makes it even more satisfying when you succeed.
