Everest Base Camp Trek

This is perhaps the best and most iconic trek in the world! Hiking to Everest base camp should be on everyone’s bucket list. What makes the beauty and excitement of trekking in this majestic land even better is being part of the lovely and hospitable Sherpa culture. Sherpa are known the world over for their graciousness and generosity.

Enjoy spending time visiting famous cultural and religious sights on our way through this scenic valley in the shadow of the world’s highest mountains. Our slow acclimatization schedule means there is plenty of time to explore landmarks like the famous Tengboche Monastery where you can stop by to visit a High Lama and receive a blessing, take time to explore the famous Namche Bazaar – the Sherpa capital or have a beer in the world’s highest pub. Passing by countless Tibetan Buddhist stupas and chortens, you will feel the rich culture of Tibetan Buddhism come alive.

We choose to implement a slow acclimatization schedule, not just so you can take in the sights and sounds of the valley but to ensure you enjoy your trek and feel great. Altitude isn’t something to be feared, it’s achievable for most people but it isn’t a process that can be rushed. Treks that move too quickly often have disgruntled, unwell people because their bodies are struggling to adjust.

Yes, trekking to Mt. Everest base camp requires good fitness but it is an achievable goal. You need have the mindset to be away from home for several weeks, along with the desire for adventure travel. The Khumbu is still a remote place with few of the creature comforts we have come to expect at home so it’s best to suspend your expectations of 5 star luxury, super smooth trails and blazing fast internet. In fact, when you embrace it, you’ll enjoy the slower pace of life and being a little disconnected from the rush of the Western world. That said we do our best and select teahouses that are clean, have great food and offer hot showers and 3rd party wifi internet for purchase.

The CTSS Mt. Everest base camp trek begins in Kathmandu where we obtain our  permits and encourage you to enjoy a day checking out the city before beginning the trek in to base camp via the Khumbu Valley by flying in to Lukla to begin your expedition which will see you trek to over 17,600ft/5,400m!
