After enjoying a good night's sleep and indulging in a hearty breakfast, we proceed with our tour of Swayambhunath, popularly known as the Monkey Temple. The name "Swayambhu" derives from the belief that the hill on which the temple stands was self-created, having emerged suddenly from a vast lake that once covered the Kathmandu Valley.

Following our exploration of Swayambhunath, we embark on a drive to visit the renowned Boudhanath Stupa, considered to be the largest stupa in the world. This stupa holds great significance as a center of Tibetan culture within Kathmandu. Its design embodies the concept of a giant mandala, symbolizing the Buddhist cosmos.

After our visit to Boudhanath, we enjoy a delicious lunch before returning to our hotel to freshen up and prepare for our upcoming trek. We take our time to ensure all necessary preparations are made, ensuring a comfortable and organized start to our trekking adventure.

Experience the thrill of a lifetime as your guide picks you up early in the morning and accompanies you to Kathmandu Airport. Your destination? Lukla, a small town situated at an altitude of approximately 2,800 meters (9,186 feet), just a short 30-minute flight away. As you land in Lukla, the experienced porters eagerly await your arrival, ready to provide their warm greetings and assist you throughout the trek.

Your exhilarating journey begins as you head north from the airstrip towards Chablung (2,700m/8,858ft). Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to cross the Tharo Kosi river via a local-style suspension bridge, adding a touch of adventure to your trek. As you continue ascending, the majestic peak of Kusum Kanguru (6,367m/20,889ft), renowned as one of the most challenging "trekking peaks," will gradually come into view, captivating you with its awe-inspiring grandeur.

Beyond the Tharo Kosi, the trail gently ascends towards Ghat (2,590m/8,497ft). Along this path, you'll traverse a ridge adorned with beautifully painted mani stones, showcasing the rich Buddhist culture of the region. Each step forward brings you closer to Phakding, where you'll spend the night and rest in preparation for the upcoming days of your adventure.

Throughout this leg of the trek, you can expect comfortable accommodation in mountain lodges, known as teahouses. These teahouses provide cozy settings and essential amenities, ensuring a pleasant stay along your journey. You won't have to worry about meals either, as all your nourishing sustenance will be included, keeping you energized throughout the day.

This scenic route promises to be a truly unforgettable experience, offering a glimpse into the wonders of the Himalayas and the spirit of the Sherpa people who call this place home.

Starting from Phakding, the trek follows the scenic Dudh Kosi River valley while staying on the west bank. As we proceed, we embark on a steep ascent over a rocky ridge leading to Benkar (2,710m/8,891ft). From Benkar, the trail continues alongside the river, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes. This section of the trek is adorned with charming villages and awe-inspiring forests boasting rhododendron, magnolia, and giant fir trees. The vibrant flowers that bloom during early autumn and late spring add to the enchanting beauty of the journey.

Crossing the Kyashar Khola River, we gradually ascend out of the valley, eventually reaching the village of Monjo (2,840m/9,315ft). Beyond Monjo, we enter the renowned Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park, which was established in 1976 to preserve an area spanning 1,148 square kilometers (445 square miles) surrounding Mount Everest. After passing through the national park entrance station, the trail descends steeply and takes us across a 120-meter-long suspension bridge over the Dhud Kosi river, leading to Jorsale (2,830m/9,285ft).

Continuing on, we cross the river several more times while ascending the valley until we eventually reach the vibrant trading hub of Namche Bazaar (3,420m/11,220ft).

Namche Bazaar is situated between two ridges amidst the enormous peaks of the Khumbu region, at an altitude of approximately 3,440 meters (11,286 feet). It is a bustling town that offers a variety of lodges, teashops, and souvenir shops. Despite its remote mountain location, Namche Bazaar has developed enough to meet western standards, making it a popular destination for trekkers and mountaineers.

Known as the "Las Vegas of the Khumbu," Namche Bazaar is an ideal place to spend a rest day and acclimatize to the new altitude before continuing towards Tengboche.

Today, we have a significant day hike ahead as part of our acclimatization process, taking us through the captivating and picturesque villages of Khunde and Khumjung. This carefully planned itinerary allows us to gradually adapt to the increasing altitude, ensuring both the safety and enjoyment of our journey.

After breakfast, our Sherpa guide will lead you on an acclimatization hike up the slopes above the Everest Views Hotel, which is constructed by the Japanese. This stunningly located hotel offers delightful views of Everest and Ama Dablam, making it a perfect spot for a tea break.

During the hike, we will also visit the neighboring towns of Kunde and Khumjung, which are situated below Khumbila, a sacred rocky peak for all Sherpas. In Kunde, we will visit the Edmund Hillary Hospital, established by Sir Edmund Hillary, the legendary mountaineer. If time permits, we will also visit the monastery in Khumjung, where you can witness the only Yeti skull in the world by paying a small fee.

Afterward, we will return to the lodge for a tea break in the afternoon. You will have leisure time to explore the town and its surroundings. In the evening, your guide will provide a briefing about any necessary gear and the anticipated itinerary for the following days.

This unique path promises diverse landscapes and the charm of lesser-explored Sherpa settlements, providing a more intimate and enriching experience.

Starting our adventure from Namche, we trace the Gokyo lakes route, immersing ourselves in the breathtaking vistas.

From the ridge situated on the north side of the village, we begin our ascent towards Nagarjuna peak. As we climb higher, the panoramic vistas unfold before us, offering a breathtaking display of some of the world's highest mountains. The mighty peaks of Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Cho Yu dominate the horizon, showcasing their majestic beauty.

Today is the most crucial part of our trip as we embark on an early morning ascent to Kala Patthar 5,643 meters (18,513 feet), a renowned viewpoint offering dramatic views of Mt. Everest. To witness the first light of day shining on the mighty Everest, we need to start early at dawn. However, we must prepare ourselves for the dark and cold temperatures ranging from -10 to -14 degrees Celsius (-14 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit). Additionally, chilly winds are quite common in this region.

As we make our way towards Kala Patthar, we will be greeted by familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse towering to the east. Gradually, Everest begins to reveal itself, emerging between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse.

During the ascent, we will have the opportunity to pause at several outstanding viewpoints to catch our breath and capture photographs of the breathtaking scenery.

We initially booked and paid deposits for the EBC Trek in 2021. When we rescheduled our trip for 2023, Mountain Sherpa Trekking was kind enough to let us reuse the 2021 deposit. The overall experience of the EBC Trek far exceeded our expectations!

Communication via email was consistently responsive. Mr. Pasang Sherpa from Mountain Sherpa Trekking was always quick to respond to our questions and concerns, demonstrating professionalism and knowledge. They provided a well-designed itinerary that deviated from the traditional route, taking us through the beautiful Sherpa village called Phorste to Dingboche after Namche. This unique path offered a fantastic view of Ama Dablam.
As a group of 10 people, they arranged airport pickups and drop-offs, offering the best accommodations in the city and during the trek. We were impressed by their Sherpa hospitality.
Our guides, Mr. Pema Sherpa and Mr. Mingmar Sherpa, were amazing. We cannot express enough praise for their professionalism, fun personalities, and dedication to providing the best service. We booked the private luxury package, making it the BEST-guided EBC Trek. Everyone formed friendships with each other, and we couldn't stop talking about the experience—the unlimited meals and hot drinks, the one-hour Ayurvedic massage at the end of the trek, the hot showers, and so much more!
Mountain Sherpa Trekking is, without a doubt, the number one Sherpa trekking company in Nepal. If you're deciding between providers, you can't go wrong with Mountain Sherpa Trekking.

Why did you choose Mountain Sherpa Trekking?

I chose Mountain Sherpa Trekking because it's owned by Sherpas, known for their excellence in trekking and climbing. The trek itinerary was perfectly designed, providing great value.They also offered flexibility to tailor it to my preferences.

One of the most amazing experiences I have ever had! We did the epic Everest Base camp trek with our Sherpa guides Migma and Dawa. Migma and Dawa made this trek exceptional. Everything was superb well organized. Despite it being a hard trek, the Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions ensures it will be an amazing experience. From the hotel in Kathmandu city to food and lodging on the mountain, to the hike itself-nothing could have been any better.
What an incredible way to spend time in Nepal. We had so many laughs and our whole group was so helpful to one another that I could not recommend Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions enough.
The trek preparation and design of the trip were super fast and impressive- the itinerary was impeccably designed- with all-inclusive packages. Mr. Pasang Sherpa was very personalized and he always made time to discuss these issues and questions (pressing or not) by Whatsapp or email.

Moreover, it is a locally owned Sherpa Company and supports the community. The porters who seem to have the best gear compared to other companies also carry this pride. No need to look any further for an amazing journey to the Everest base camp trek.

Would you recommend Mountain Sherpa Trekking to your friends?

I highly recommend Mountain Sherpa Trekking for their personalized service, top-notch Sherpa guides, and exceptional service throughout the entire Everest Base Camp trek.

What would you advice other travellers?

Before booking the Everest Base Camp trek please ensure that you will have the best service, especially reliable Sherpa guides, good accommodation, and enough food during the trek.

We trekked to Everest Base Camp with 3 of my friends in a group of 12 people. The trekking journey is definitely the best experience I ever had in my life. The friendly and cooperative staffs of the trekking company were quite experienced and helped and guided us during our entire trekking journey.


Having always lived a comfortable life, the accommodation at tea houses in the mountain felt somewhat difficult but it was the part of the adventure. We are very thankful to the Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions and their staffs who helped us enjoy the breath-taking mountain views and teaching us the local Nepali culture which made our journey much more memorable.

I and my girlfriend booked our Everest Base Camp Trek with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expedition. We successfully completed our trek without any difficulties or injury. We are happy that we chose the MSTE Company for our trekking journey. We are extremely happy and satisfied with the services provided to us. The trekking guide and porters were very friendly and took care of us all the time on the trail. Though it was our first trip to Nepal the friendliness and helpful nature of our guide didn’t let us feel being at an unknown place.


We enjoyed every moment of our trekking journey. Furthermore, we were provided with some trekking gears like a sleeping bag, down jacket, and a duffel bag without any extra charge for trekking. Our guide helped us with everything during our trek keeping our safety at priority. We are very happy with the services and guidance provided to us. They really were beyond our expectations. We recommend everyone to book their trekking journey in Nepal with this wonderful company. Believe me, they are the best companion to the Everet Base Camp Trek.

My wife and I completed the Everest base amp trek with group join trek, and we were all so thankful we chosen to go with mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions! They exceeded our expectations in every way. It is a very prearranged, expert company. They were helpful, replied all our inquiries thoroughly and fast. During the Everest base camp trek, our expert local Sherpa guides were fantastic.


They were welcoming, experienced, and patient. Despite us often being near the back of A day before the start of the trek there is a briefing at the hotel, which is a good way to get to know about overall trekking. Also we got the company duffle bags for the stuff, which was carried, by the porters.

The first day began early morning with the pick up at our hotel and drive to Airport for Lukla Flight. After short but thrilling flight to Lukla, We met our Sherpa guides and Porters to start of the Everest base camp trek. Before the start there was a nice coffee and breakfast. On the trek itself we experienced that the guides took care of everyone of the group. They did a lot of stops, so you get a chance to take some rest and drink or eat something. Our guides never pushed us to speed up. They were outstanding in providing fascinating info about the places. The porters were amazing! The lodge accommodations and food was overall very good.

Overall, Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions is outstanding value, and we recommend them to everyone!

We found Best Everest base camp Trek reviews online about Mountain Sherpa Trekking and booked our trek to Everest base camp. I can't express sufficient how great of an experience my friends and me had at Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions. All before the trek was set up so perfectly and efficiently, and they created such a warm and fun environment during the trek, it felt like we were a small family by the end of the trek.


We met as a group for an information session the night before we fly to Lukla. This was helpful and informative, and it allowed us to meet our group over tea too. The first day of the trek, we started off at the Everest base camp trek from Lukla after short flight from Kathmandu. The trek we took was absolutely beautiful. The views are unlike I have ever seen and I will never forget the beauty of the mountains and the terrain. No one in the group was rushed to finish the trek and our guides gave us spots to take breaks and wait for everyone before continuing. Overall, the trek was also gorgeous, and was mostly downhill.

We also had time throughout the trek to learn more about the Sherpa culture and lives of the local Sherpa people - this, after the insane views - is another reason you should definitely do the Everest base camp trek.

Last but not least, I want to commend our expert local Sherpa guides, Rinji Sherpa and Sonam Sherpa, and the rest of the Mountain Sherpa trekking & Expeditions crew that was on our trek. They are the main reasons that this was such a great experience. Rinji and Sonam knew so much information about the region, Sherpa culture, and history, and they spent a good portion of the trek teaching us new things. Beyond this, they took our care and safety as a priority. When I was feeling sick the first day,

Sonam stayed behind to confirm I was feeling better and to continue at my own pace. I made it to camp that night because of the patience and care of both of the guides! Last but not least, the food was incredible on the trek. The porters and the lodge and food was good - it was really amazing to see them carry all of our bags and the necessary equipment ahead of us. Thank you Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions for making my trip so memorable

“After spending 15 days in Everest Base Camp Trek, I have to congratulate Pasang and the team of Mountain Sherpa Trekking for their services.

I was a solo traveler but Pasang took care of me in Kathmandu picking me up on my arrival, helping me with all the arrangements (change money, rent equipment) and taking care of me after my trip once I had to come back to the airport. Great Service!
Best of best was my climbing sherpa/guide in Nepal (Lhakpa Sonam Sherpa). I totally recommend Lhakpa as a guide. Not only he is always focused on the wellness of his client, he knows everybody and everything in the region so he is always happy to share his experiences and advice the best for the trip.

I recommend this trip to anyone, it is a fantastic adventure and if organized by right people (like Mountain Sherpa Trekking) it is not as difficult as it looks even for those traveling alone”.

We did some looking around before deciding on going to base camp with Mountain Sherpa, and we are glad we did. We decided on them because of the price, communication and the fact that they are local - so our money wasn't going to the bottom line of a big company and we got the personal touch we were looking for. Our trip was customised to suit the flight dates that we had already booked in advance, and Sumba managed everything for us, including changing Lukla flight dates a couple of times to give us some more like in Kathmandu before our trek and having the amend bookings as one of our party got sick before we left Australia and had to drop out.

Communication with Sumba was always prompt and effective but still relaxed and friendly. The guides and porters that Sumba organised for us (Lhakpa, Pemba and Nyima) were fantastic: knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and good humoured. 1 of us was struggling with altitude sickness and they were all concerned and looked after him really well. We got up to base camp and back in 2 less days than expected (we came down pretty quickly) and it wasn't an issue to bring our flights back to Kathmandu forward and organise an extra couple of days accom in Kathmandu as well.
Overall an excellent trip - and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Mountain Sherpa to anyone looking to explore the Himalaya.

The Mountain Sherpa Trekking team did an amazing and professional job from day one until it was time to go home. My fiancée and I took the trip in late March and enjoyed bright sunshine and warm temperatures on most days. At no fault of the trekking company, poor weather did delay our flight from Kathmandu to Lukla for 2 days, which forced us take a helicopter or risk missing our return flights home. This added to the cost, but our guide in Kathmandu, Tandi and our guide on the trail, Nurujngbu were very accommodating to ensure we got the most out of the trip. Every day we were treated to new and beautiful views of the Himalayan Mountains and the chance to learn and interact with the local population. Every night were were treated to wonderful food and our own very nice (however cold) room for 2. On the days when the road got steep and the air got thin, Nurujngbu and our porter, Pimba always made every effort to help us along with helpful tips and a positive attitude. Overall, the trip was a huge success and one I would highly recommend to all family and friends.

Thanks for all your hard work organizing our trekking adventure. We had a wonderful time. The trek to Everest Base Camp was not easy, but was rewarding and worth it with awesome views, interesting cultures, and kind peple. We never felt unsafe throughout our trip for any political reasons. Our guide Pasang and Nima were great. Nima always had a warm smile. During one night my wife became very sick with a stomach bug probably due to the food. Pasang, Nima, and another Sherpa carried her on their backs to the next town that had a doctor. This showed how kind and caring the Sherpa culture was. Overall, I would definitely recommend this trip and your company for excellent trekking service in Nepal.

We work directly with the local communities to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. We seek to help and to be helped to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods.

We continue to help the local community and have helped our Sherpa guides, porters, and staff. As things get worse for tourism workers amid covid-19 pandemic, Mountain Sherpa Trekking director Mr. Pasang Sherpa distributed relief packages to more than 450 Sherpa trekking guides, porters, and climbing guides on 25 May 2020, Similarly, He supported to Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) that has established a food bank for the tourism workers in Nepal during the COVID 19 pandemic.

As part of its social responsibility, the company donates up to 15% of its annual revenue to the Mountain Sherpa Foundation (MSF). This foundation is actively involved in various social activities aimed at uplifting underprivileged individuals and communities in Nepal.

One of the key initiatives undertaken by MSF is providing scholarships to underprivileged students. So far, the foundation has granted scholarships to 140 deserving students from all seven wards of Mapya Dudhkoshi Rural Municipality. These scholarships offer educational opportunities that may have otherwise been inaccessible to these students, empowering them to pursue their dreams and aspirations.

In addition to the scholarship program, the Mountain Sherpa Foundation organizes regular medical health camps in remote villages of Nepal. These camps provide essential healthcare services to communities that lack easy access to medical facilities. By reaching out to these underserved areas, the foundation strives to improve the overall health and well-being of the local population.

Drinking Water during Everest base camp Trek:

When planning a high-altitude trek, it's important to consider the impact of our choices on the local environment. While it may seem like a convenient and safe option, mineral water can actually have a devastating impact on mountain societies.

While it's true that purchasing mineral water provides income for local traders, it also creates a significant amount of waste and pollution. Most mountain communities simply do not have the resources to properly dispose of plastic bottles, which can take more than 450 years to decompose. Burning these bottles releases toxic gases into the air, while leaving them in piles can lead to unsightly and hazardous waste buildup.

For example, on a 13-day trek to Everest Base Camp, the recommended water intake for each person is 3-4 liters per day. This amounts to more than 40 liters of water and 40 plastic bottles per person, which will not decompose until the year 2466. For a group of 12 people, this results in over 480 plastic bottles that will be left behind in the mountains forever.

So what can we do to minimize our impact? Consider bringing a refillable water bottle and purifying water from natural sources using a filtration system or water purification tablets. This not only reduces waste but also supports the local community by reducing the demand for mineral water. Additionally, many lodges along popular trekking routes now offer purified water refills for a small fee.

By making small changes in our choices, we can help protect the delicate mountain environment and support sustainable tourism. Let's make a conscious effort to leave the mountains as we found them, or even better.

The Alternatives: The great news is that there are really various options that will help you out of the bottled water trap. Here are just four of the best. All you have to do is pick which one is right for you.

Striped- Steripen is the most trusted model on the market. This technique uses exactly the same process as most mineral water undergoes before it is bottled. It’s UV filtering, exactly the same treatment as the majority of bottled water undergoes to be purified, but on the go. The technology has been around for much longer than you think, but it’s only recently been competitively priced enough to be on the market. SteriPen is an American company; other UV filters are also available.

Boiled water– This isn’t always an option if you’re out and about, but boiled water is an excellent option for safe drinking water on the trek. Boiling the water kills any nastiness lurking there. It is the safest and most convenient option. Most lodges serve it, and it is great to ward off the cold. Prices range anywhere between NPR 50 and 120 per liter. This means the cost of drinking water will be around $40-$60 for an 11-day EBC trek.

Purification tablets– Water-refining tablets or chemicals like chlorine dioxide are frequently used. They are easy to carry and cheap to buy. However, they are not as effective as UV filters or boiled water and need a few hours to act. Besides these, LifeStraw and iodine-based treatments are also available but have their drawbacks.

At Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions, we understand that your time is valuable and that unexpected weather conditions can disrupt travel plans. That is why we have put in place a reliable contingency plan to ensure that you arrive at your international flight connections on time.

Our usual mode of transport to and from Lukla is the Twin Otter aircraft, which is a dependable service. However, in the event that flights are cancelled due to mountain weather conditions, we offer a charter helicopter service to ensure that you remain on schedule. Our helicopters can fly in visibility conditions of 1500m, while the Twin Otter requires visibility of 5000m as per the Civil Aviation Rules.

We believe that safety and reliability are paramount when it comes to air travel. That is why we only work with experienced pilots who are familiar with the challenging terrain and weather conditions in the region. Rest assured that your safety and comfort are our top priorities.

We understand that cost is an important factor in travel planning. The cost of the helicopter service is payable directly to our Kathmandu office in the event that this service is utilized. We accept US cash, traveler's cheque, or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard & American Express only) for your convenience. The cost of the helicopter service will depend on the number of group members, with a minimum cost of US$350 and a maximum of US$650.

Please note that the maximum allowance for checked luggage on these flights is 15kg per person and 5kg for hand luggage. These limits are strictly adhered to, so we ask that you pack carefully. Approximately 5.5kgs of this weight will be taken up by the sleeping bag (2.5kg), down jacket (1.5kg), kit bag (1kg), and sleeping bag liner (0.5kg) that we provide.

We want you to enjoy your trip to the fullest, without any worries about travel disruptions. Our helicopter service is a reliable and efficient way to ensure that you remain on schedule, even in adverse weather conditions. Rest assured that your safety and comfort are our top priorities, and we look forward to providing you with an unforgettable adventure.

The importance of Everest Base Camp Insurance

Travel insurance is necessary for any trip but is mainly important when undertaking activities such as high-altitude trekking in remote regions where medical facilities or assistance may not be close at hand. You’ll enjoy your adventure better with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have the right insurance cover in place should a mishap occur.

This can be anything from medical emergencies, trip cancellation, trip interruption, delays, lost or stolen luggage to a full helicopter rescue of a mountain. For the Everest base camp trek, you need to confirm that your travel insurance covers Helicopter Rescue with a height limit of no less than 5,5000m. Most standard policies provide cover for walking up to a maximum of 2,500 meters.

The Nepal Trekking Activity Pack add-on extends cover to include trekking between 4,600m and up to 7,000m within Nepal and also includes all activities in the Extreme Activity and Activity packs.


Everest Base Camp Trek Altitude Sickness

When we hike above 3500 meters our bodies have to acclimatize to the decreasing amount of oxygen available.

  1. Tiredness

  3. Troubled sleep
  4. Loss of appetite/nausea
  5. Shortness of breath
  6. Cough
  7. Palpitation
  8. Swelling of the hands and face

Each Person acclimatizes at different rates. Our best suggestion is to take your time and drink plenty of water. These symptoms may not indicate the onset of A.M.S. and if you experience them it does not necessarily mean that you should not continue. All our Sherpa guides have extensive first aid training and we urge you to talk with the Sherpa guide at all times should you believe you have any symptoms in order that we can efficiently monitor your symptoms. The only cure for Acute Mountain Sickness is to descend. Please note that your guide has ultimate responsibility and may ask you to descend if symptoms persist.

The advance booking deposit is necessary to secure your spot on the trek and to make arrangements with the local guides, porters, flights, accommodations, and permits. It also helps ensure that the necessary logistics are in place for a smooth and well-organized trekking experience.

Once you have confirmed your booking, a 25% advance deposit of the total trip package is required for 100% confirmation. You can make this deposit online or through bank wire transfer.

After you have made the advance booking payment, we will send you an invoice for the payment and a confirmation email for your booking. The remaining balance amount can be paid in Kathmandu on the day of your arrival. It's important to note that the trek deposit is non-refundable, but you have the option to postpone your travel date if needed. Your advance deposit payments will remain valid for up to 3 years, allowing you to choose any date within that period for your travel.

Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

With a remarkable 99% success rate, our Everest Base Camp trek owes its achievement to our highly experienced local Sherpa guides. As a 100% local Sherpa company, our team hails from the Everest region and possesses unparalleled expertise in navigating the challenging Himalayan terrain.

Sherpas are renowned elite mountaineers and recognized as experts in their area. Their invaluable contributions to early Himalayan explorers have solidified their reputation as unparalleled companions for Everest expeditions.

Our success rate stems from our specially designed itinerary, which prioritizes acclimatization in high altitudes. We understand its critical nature and have incorporated measures to ensure your safety and well-being. You'll spend two nights in Namche Bazaar, gradually adjusting to the thinning air at an altitude of 3,440 meters (11,286 feet). This reduces the risk of altitude-related illnesses.

After Namche Bazaar, you'll have the opportunity to spend two nights in Dingboche village, situated around 4,410 meters (14,470 feet) above sea level. Our Sherpa guides will lead you on an exciting excursion to a nearby peak reaching nearly 5,100 meters (16,733 feet). This strategic activity enhances your acclimatization process, allowing your body to adapt more effectively.

By incorporating these acclimatization periods and relying on the expertise of our local Sherpa guides, we maximize your chances of successfully reaching Everest Base Camp. Your safety and enjoyment are our utmost priorities, backed by our proven track record.

Embark on this remarkable journey and experience the expertise, care, and attention to detail only a 100% local Sherpa company can provide. Join our satisfied trekkers who have realized their dreams of standing at the base of the world's highest mountain.
