An unforgettable journey awaits on the Everest Base Camp trek 17 Days! Royal Himalayan Holidays is sure to take you to one of the highest base camps in the world. Everest base camp trekking is one of the most sought-after treks in the world. Seeing the mighty Mt. Everest (8,849m/29,032ft) up close and scratching the next thing on your bucket list is one of the best feelings ever!

During the Everest Base Camp trek for 17 days, we get to see not only some of the highest mountains in the world but also encounter the legendary Sherpas. These people are known across the world as the best mountaineers. Living and thriving at unimaginable high altitudes the Sherpa is also known for their warm hospitality. Royal Himalayan Holidays will make sure to visit their villages on the way to Everest Base Camp and you’ll get to know about their unique culture and traditions! During the Everest Base Camp trek, mountains such as Mt Ama Dablam (6,812m/22,349ft), Mt Lhotse (8,516m/27,940ft), and Mt Nuptse (7,861m/25,791ft) will come into view amongst other legendary mountains. The way to Everest Base Camp always starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. During the flight, some of the most amazing aerial sceneries can be seen in the Nepalese Himalayas. Perfect to get ready for this adventurous trek in Nepal. After arriving in Lukla our Royal Himalayan Holidays professional team of porters and our licensed trekking guide will be there to meet and greet you. After getting to know each other and having a pre-trek briefing we head out to our first destination Phakding. From here we can reach Namche Bazaar, the biggest Sherpa settlement in the region and the official gateway to Mt. Everest! After spending a day in Namche exploring and visiting the Sherpa museum we trek further to Khumjung, here at the monastery, a mythical yeti skull rests and can be viewed. The journey continues to Phortse, Dingboche, Lobuche, and ultimately Gorakshep. From Gorakshep, a few hours of hiking takes you to Everest Base Camp! There will be two acclimatization days planned to prevent AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) once at Khumjung and once more at Dingboche. Although the views of Mt Everest are not the best from Base Camp, you can see the world’s highest glacier, called the Khumbu Glacier at an elevation of 4,900m (16,076ft) to 7,600m (24,934ft)! The next morning we head out very early up to Kala Pathar hill from where some of the best close-up views of Mt Everest can be seen in combination with a Himalayan sunrise view. After this, we start to make our way back to Lukla, and finally back to Kathmandu to conclude this amazing Everest Base Camp trek. 

Royal Himalayan Holidays can’t wait to book the Everest Base Camp trek for you! Embark on one of the most popular treks in Nepal with the Everest Base Camp trek, and perhaps you can see the mythical yeti?! 

Note: we do advise all our travelers to calculate an extra day in anticipation of flight delays due to the weather conditions from Kathmandu to Lukla.
