The lodges were great, the scenery mind blowing and the people very welcoming. The guide for the trek was the loveliest most informative guide.

Luxury Everest Base Camp

This is one of the classic treks of the world with stunning mountain scenery while staying in high quality lodges of the Khumbu region. With our itinerary you get the opportunity to trek to both Ama Dablam Base Camp and Everest Base Camp.

The Everest Summit Lodges are at a standard far better than anything else available in the area. The lodges provide the highest level of service with landscaped gardens, comfortable lounges and bedrooms as well as hot showers and western toilets.

The trek starts with an exciting flight in a Twin Otter plane to the mountain airstrip at Lukla, from here we follow in the footsteps of famous mountaineers for the walk into Everest Base Camp. We are now in Buddhist Sherpa country where you will see colourful prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries along the way.

We have designed our Everest Base Camp trek with plenty of time for the necessary acclimatisation. Our route takes you to the prettiest Sherpa villages in the Khumbu and to Namche Bazaar the colourful and vibrant heart of Sherpa country. You have the opportunity to visit the main monasteries of the Khumbu region at Tengboche and Thame. The high points of our itinerary are the walk up to Kala Patar for the panoramic viewpoint of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse and also the hike from Gorak Shep along the Khumbu glacier to Everest Base Camp.

We recommend you read this article writen on TMC blog by Roland with Tips and Advice for a successful trek to Everest Base Camp
