Open Charity Challenge to Everest Base Camp

Everest Base Camp is one of the classic treks of the world with stunning mountain scenery including Everest and Ama Dablam. This is a great opportunity to raise sponsorship funds for the charity of your choice.

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
