Everest Base Camp
26 September - 13 October 2019
Mount Everest, Nepal
Eight of the world’s 14 giants meet in the Nepalese Himalayas, including the greatest of them all: Mount Everest standing at a formidable 8,848m.
Beginning in Lukla, we will follow in the footsteps of the Sherpa on this epic quest trekking at high altitude. You will take in the overwhelming panoramic views of deep gorges and glaciers whilst sampling traditional Sherpa hospitality along the way.
Cross numerous rivers along the way until we reach the highest point at Kalapathar (5,545m). Take in the astonishing array of peaks and glaciers below before celebrating in the Nepal’s mystical capital city of Kathmandu.
