Description of Everest Base Camp trekking holiday in Nepal

This Everest Base Camp trekking holiday in Nepal is a sixteen day holiday, with eight full days of trekking at the foot of the world’s highest mountain. This breathtaking landscape is no mean feat, however, even if you do only go to the foot of the great summit. Because you still trek to an elevation of 5,364m, which is half the height of Everest itself, making this a lifelong dream for many keen trekkers, taking on the Himalaya’s most famous trail.

After taking a short and stunning flight to Lukla, at the start of the trail, your first half day trek to Phakding will be to an elevation of 2610m. From here on in, you will be trekking through Sherpa heartland, famous the world over for their dedication, strength and fine welcome. You will be guided by experts on treks of around five hours a day to the likes of Tengboche Monastery at 3860m, a sacred spot that also has heavenly views of both Everest and Lhotse. Or Namche Bazaar, a busy trading centre and hub cradle of Sherpa culture. And of course Khumbu Glacier, a17km river of ice that is the highest glacier in the world.

Before getting to Base Camp, some guides go directly from Lobuche, and then drop back down to Gorek Shep. Others spend a night at Gorek Shep and ascend to Base Camp first thing on the morning, conditions depending. And from Base Camp, you have superb views of Everest’s summit of course. Which makes up for some strenuous moments along the way, although with plenty of stops and full days to acclimatise along the way, our guides do their utmost to make the trek as smooth as possible for you. And endeavour to help you have one of the most exhilarating and revitalising trekking holidays of your life.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Everest Base Camp trekking holiday in Nepal

Environment

Conservation of wildlife of this region has been our top priority. We strictly stick to the concept that every single creature of the planet has some role to play in the ecosystem and that they are the integral parts of the food chain. We try and encourage our clients to use bio-degradable stuffs wherever and whenever possible. We even try to bring back as much garbage as we can. Our clients travel by foot as much as they can. Most of our holidays are done by foot. We use mules, donkeys and horses to carry loads instead of the vehicles that emit carbon monoxide. Nepal is known for its abundance in water resources. So, conservation of water tops the must-do list at all times. Culturally, in Nepal sources of water are attributed to deities and divinities. So, without a doubt, we take utmost care that we do not step over the line with their cultural sentiments and we encourage our clients to do the same. Waste of water is a big “NO” during our expeditions.

Community

We recommend our clients local products. We believe this helps the local community in multiple ways. This increases the income of the local people. It promotes the local skills, culture and lifestyle. Similarly, it helps run the local business without a hitch. We allocate certain part of our income for the welfare of the local communities. We hire the local people when their skills and knowledge can be of some assistance to us. Most of the porters, guides and even drivers, if needed, are hired from the local places. We make sure we choose those places as our stopovers during the trip which serve local food, tea, beverages and so forth.
Once we are back from our trip we strongly urge our clients they recommend the local specialties to their friends and families. Be it local agro-products or handicrafts we hand over them to our guests as token of love. It serves more than one benefit. It keeps our guests coming back to us and it promotes the local skills worldwide. Moreover, we assist local schools and charitable trusts in raising awareness in the issues like global warming, need of education, sanitation, gender equality and so on.
