Everest Classic Trek

Everest Classic Trek

Probably the most famous mountain of the world, Mount Everest’s grandiose stature continues to amaze many travelers. This ascent to the 5,300m base camp of the world's highest peak will take you to the heart of the Sherpa nation and through awe-inspiring, barren ice-capped landscapes.

Trek in the footsteps of legends as we ascend from 9,200 feet to 18,190 feet in elevation, where verdant forested valleys fall away before the icebound drama of the world’s highest mountains. Trekking at a moderate pace allows time to acclimatize and to learn about the rich Sherpa culture of the Solu Khumbu region. Explore brilliantly decorated temples and monasteries. Traverse the lower slopes of Tawoche, a 21,463’ collection of bare rock, glaciers and towering ice spires. On Kalapatthar, skirt car-sized boulders to reach its 18,190’ summit at sunset and enjoy one of the best light shows on earth! Your friendly guides provide surprisingly tasty meals while lending support and companionship. Begin and end this epic journey in exotic Kathmandu.
