The trek to Everest Base Camp is the most famous multi-day adventure hike in the world for a reason. Taking you into the heart of the Himalayas, the route winds its way up to 5,643m above sea level, offering you unparalleled views of the world’s highest mountain. Along the way, you’ll be immersed in Sherpa culture, soaking up the sounds and sights of the Khumbu region, and creating memories that will last a lifetime.


What the adventure involves :

It’s easy to understand why trekking to Everest Base Camp is a bucket list item for many. One of the most adventurous, tough, but rewarding hikes in the world, this trail offers phenomenal mountain views and incredible insights into the lives of Sherpas and others in Khumbu Region. And who better to show you all this than Sherpas themselves? 

Royal Nepal Group is entirely Nepalese-run, with our leaders and team priding themselves on their ability to bridge the gap between western and Himalayan climbing cultures, offering the best of both worlds. Our leader's mountaineering record is unparalleled.

Because we’re used to operating at above 8,000m, nothing on the Royal Nepal Group trip is left to chance - and that includes our treks. We oversee every aspect of every expedition, keeping as much in-house as possible, so we’re never left reliant on others.

We know this region intimately, and speak the language ourselves. Our local knowledge further bolsters our ability to operate safely, but it also allows us to offer you insights that other operations can’t. Royal Nepal Group’s Everest Base Camp Trek follows an expedition plan that our leaders have set out, and we know these mountains like the back of our hands - our guides have trodden this path countless times.

After exploring the shrines, temples, bazaars and restaurants of Kathmandu, we take a flight to Lukla, a gateway to Everest. Then, we walk up to the Dudh Kosi Valley, surrounded by the magnificent peaks of Kusum Kanguru and Thamserku. We make the steep ascent to Namche Bazaar, capital of the Khumbu Sherpas, where we spend a day acclimatizing and sightseeing.

From there, we follow the trails to Tengboche, located high on a ridge, which provides one of the most spectacular 360-degree mountain panoramas anywhere on the planet. You can see Everest, the Lhotse-Nuptse Wall, Ama Dablam and Kantega. We pass through Buddhist monasteries and past ancient shrines, with the massive bulk of Mount Everest itself looming ever closer. From Kala Patthar at 5,643m, you’ll get an incredible vista of the world’s most famous mountain, before we head to base camp.

Our return journey takes us through Dingboche, Phortse and Khumjing, before we part ways in Kathmandu, 19 days and whole lifetime’s worth of experiences later.
