Everest Trips

For many, Everest Base Camp is the ultimate trekking goal, other than taking on Sagarmāthā herself. The classic Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal is a demanding climb but not technical and should not be beyond most competent walkers. The view from Base Camp across the Khumbu Icefall and its sharp ice seracs is breathtaking, and from Kala Pattar a magnificent view of the summit of Everest is one to be savoured. At 5400m, Everest Base Camp is the starting point for many of the expeditions to take on the summit – look out for our special Expedition Departures in April that stay at Base Camp as the teams prepare for their summit attempt. 

For experienced trekkers with their sights set higher still, we also offer Everest tours to the quieter Gokyo Valley, adorned with a string of turquiose glacial lakes, and the seldom-visited Thame Valley. These treks have the added challenge of crossing high passes, including the Cho La and the Renzo La, but also visit Everest Base Camp. More technical, yet still classified as a trekking peak, is Island Peak (6189m). We visit Everest Base Camp before crossing into the Dingboche valley for the summit attempt – previous experience and the necessary skills are required.

Annapurnas or Everest?

For years trekkers and walkers have argued about the differences between the Annapurnas and the Everest region. The simple answer is they are both spectacular yet different; the former lays claim to the Annapurna Sanctuary and the view from Poon Hill, whereas the latter has Everest Base Camp, the Sherpa heartland and the hilltop monastery at Thyangboche.

Both offer big mountain panoramas; the Everest region is perhaps more stark and rugged in appearance as most of the trekking here is above the tree line, and all of our Everest treks involve taking the mountain flight to Lukla. What you cannot escape is the fabulous warm hospitality of the Nepali people and the superb support of our experienced staff on the trek. All of our treks in the Everest region are point-to-point treks staying in the local teahouses.

My wife and I had long wanted to do this trek and when the 45th anniversary deal came up we...
