Overview

Everest Base Camp Trekking with Expedition Himalaya!

This is one of the very few treks that turns the ultimate dream of every high altitude trekker, to view Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, from proximity, into a reality. 

This unmatched Himalayan adventure in Nepal moves through the trail once walked by iconic mountaineers Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay!

The trek starts from Lukla and passes through beautiful valleys, dense forests and glacial rivers before reaching the South Basecamp of Mt. Everest.

The highlight of the trek is the ascent to Kalapatther which rewards us with a jaw-dropping view of the tallest mountain in the world.  

The walk can get tiring and Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) can give your that extra headache but the sense of triumph at the end of the trek will make every step of yours worthwhile.
