Trek Everest Base Camp
06 October 2018 to 21 October 2018
It’s incredible to believe that in just two weeks, you can reach the base camp of the greatest mountain on earth, Everest.
On this eleven-day trek, you will witness some of the most breathtaking scenery, visiting some of the highest villages in the world, and admiring sunrise over the Himalayan snow-capped peaks and Khumbu Glacier.
From the peak of Kala Patthar, you will gaze up at the mighty Everest summit. On your return to Kathmandu, you will spend your last night with fellow challengers celebrating your journey. How do I join Team A?
