Description of Trek to Everest base camp

We offer all routes to Everest Base Camp but the most popular is the classic route followed by most Everest summiteers. This trek also offers the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar (5545m) with its spectacular views across the South Col and Mt Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8501m), Nuptse (7879m), Ama Dablam (6856m), Thamserku (6608m) and Kantega (6685m). You will continue your Himalayan journey to eventually reach Everest Base Camp, the starting point for Everest summit attempts.

The region is rich in culture taking you through traditional Sherpa villages and onto the ancient and unspoilt Thyangboche and Pangboche monasteries which nestle high up in the mountains. We have arranged for you to sleep in traditional teahouses along the way, refuelling on delicious home-cooked meals.

This trek runs from January to May and from September to December.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


This trek to Everest base camp follows the classic route in accordance with the guidelines of the Leave No Trace Organisation.

This means:
• We are committed to the enjoyment, health and protection of the Himalaya
• We believe that education is the best means to protect Himalaya and we ensure all our guides and clients understand how important this is and what they need to do to protect the mountain
• We believe that practicing the Leave No Trace principles is the most relevant and effective long-term solution to maintaining the beauty, health of, and access to natural lands.

We only run small groups on this trek with a maximum of 12 people as these have a minimal impact on the Himalayas' fragile environment. All our guides are trained and educated in environmental protection and are responsible for ensuring that the guests understand the nature of the environment that they are in and minimise the impact that they may have. This means everything from ensuring they stick to proper paths and carry out their own trash.

Wherever we stay on the trek we use lodges and tea houses where all trash is packed out for recycling or disposal; all cooking is done on kerosene stoves and no wood is ever cut or used; all drinking water is filtered and given to clients in refillable bottle.


The most important thing any Nepal operator can do to benefit the local community is to look after all of the staff we employ well. We support the guidelines of the International Porter Projection Project and work to maintain high standards of welfare for all our guides and porters covering wages, clothing, accommodation, food and tips.

• All our guides and porters are insured and receive medical care when ill or injured
• We provide dry, basic accommodation for our guides and porters and they are provided with plenty of food and warm drinks.
• All our staff are insured for emergency rescue.
• We provide them with clothing appropriate for the trek and season.
• We have maximum weights for all porters so that they are not overworked

We do not employ any non local guides or administrative staff so that more of the money you pay goes back into the local economy. All our guides are English speaking but they are all local people with strong family and cultural ties to the area in which you will be trekking.

We use and support local hotels, such as Mulberry Hotel, and local transport providers again ensuring the maximum benefit to the local people.

For this trek we pay the Everest conservation fee and National Park fee. These have been critical in funding all the environmental protection undertaken over recent years particularly helping tea houses adopt good practise with waste and water and fuel usage.
