The Everest region trekking tour was created to show you the highlights of the region. Have a life-changing adventure on this 10 day trek in Nepal.
Mountains hold great potential for overcoming personal challenges. The great thing about Nepal is that it is home to one of the highest peaks in the world, Mount Everest, with 8848 m (29,029 feet) being the highest. Everest Base Camp Trek is known as the greatest and most rewarding challenge that you can imagine.
We need to reach for more and push ourselves to the limit. Obstacles are known to block our path, but at times we need to find the motivation and effort to overcome them. Trekking on this journey will lead to a brand new experience and perspective on life. Climbing to the top and working through the difficulty will be rewarding after seeing the multicoloured flags waving in the wind.
On this 10 day trek in Nepal you will be able to see breathtaking views and experience something new. You will be able to see life from a different perspective while enjoying the clear skies and testing your limits. Everest region trekking is for individuals who are experienced and anyone that wants to see something beautiful.
This tour includes strenuous activity and constant waking. Some of the paths can be uneven and rocky. There is a great opportunity to camp and sleep in a tent, something that can be checked off your to-do list. Come join us and see what this trek has to offer.
Our previous trekkers have stated that this experience has been eye-opening and a lovely trek. It is one of our most popular. Come see what all of the beauty and serenity are about.

When you arrive at Kathmandu airport, our representative will happily pick you up and drive you to your hotel in the city center. On your first day, you can explore the vibrant streets and the winding allies while discovering numerous restaurants, cafés, and stores. The evening is yours to settle down after your long journey.
Day 02: Trekking Preparation.
Today is a free day. You will get ready for tomorrow's trekking. Buy the trekking gears you need. You can spend today according to your needs.
Day 03: Fly to Lukla (2,860m) and Trek to Phakding (2640m). Duration 4-5hrs
We grab an early morning plane to Lukla, at 2804 meters, and touch down at Tenzing and Hillary Airport (named after Everest’s first summiteers) 30 minutes later, around 7 a.m. After landing, you can enjoy drinking tea in the village, buy last-minute trekking utensils and take photos, while our crew prepares our trekking equipment. At last, our trek begins! Descending toward the Dudh Kosi River, we follow the main trail and head toward our overnight stay at Phakding. (Overnight at guesthouse.)
Highlight: a breathtaking view of the Himalayas
Day 4: Trek from Phakding (2640m) to Namche Bazzar (3,440m). Duration 5-6hrs
We start our hike early to leave several meters of altitude behind us while crossing numerous wire suspension bridges. After entering the Sagarmatha National Park (the locals’ name for Everest), the trail climbs steeply, offering spectacular views of the surrounding peaks. After lunch, we hike two more hours before arriving at the Sherpa capital and gateway to Everest Namche Bazaar. Namche has many good restaurants, lodges, shops, pharmacies, banks, and bakeries.
(Overnight at guesthouse.)
Highlight: spectacular views within Sagarmatha National Park
Day 5: Acclimatization Day at Namche Bazzar (3,440m)
Today we are acclimatizing to the high altitude by ascending and descending in steps to adjust to the now-thinning air. The saying “climb high, sleep low” is the surest way for the body to adapt. The best suited for low-oxygen environments are the Sherpa people. We will visit a museum about these fascinating people and learn about their traditions and customs. We will also see Mount Everest for the first time here, behind the statue of Tenzing Norgay, the Sherpa who accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary on the world’s first Everest ascension. Tenzing is regarded as one of the bravest and most heroic Himalayan climbers of all time.
(Overnight at guesthouse in Namche.)

While passing the rushing glacial waters of the Dudh Kosi, we’ll have stunning views of the nearby snow-pecked mountains, including Everest. Arriving at Tengboche we’ll visit the local monastery where you can watch a prayer ceremony either in the evening or the next morning, depending on how tired you are from trekking. Inside you’ll find ornate wall hangings, a six-meter tall sculpture of Buddha, and the musical instruments and robes of the Lamas.
