Even though the Everest base camp 14-day trial has been very commercialized over the years, the venture is still undeniably unique to every trekker. The challenges are still pretty much the same. You deal with the remoteness of the Khumbu region, high altitude, trodden trails, overwhelming flights, limited services, and bare minimum modern comforts.

Our team and many years of experience will give you all the support to reach the Everest base camp. We guarantee you safe and hassle-free trekking to Mount Everest base camp.
Following our well-designed Everest base camp 14 days trekking itinerary, you trek through dense forests and beautiful mountain villages. The numerous suspension bridges crossing and walking alongside the lush green foothills gradually lead you beyond the treeline. At the same time, the welcoming locals and their practices with many stupas, monasteries & prayer flags on the way enhances the trekking experience.
Relishing the teaming greenery and verdant valley landscapes in the lower altitude, you hike above 4,000 meters, where the scenery changes to barren hills and rocky, terraced fields with snowy mountains dominating the skyline. After seven days of long and never-ending walks, you finally make it to the lap of the world's highest mountain, Everest Base Camp (5,364 m).
The Everest base camp trek doesn't end here. The next early morning, you hike to Kala Patthar (5,644 m), a viewpoint with a sensational mountain panorama and a gorgeous sunrise. It's time to trek back to Lukla, where the trek has started. One final takes off from Lukla (2,860 m) and our Everest base camp trek of 14 days ends with lifelong memories.
