Everest Base Camp The Everest Base Camp trek begins with a spectacular 45 minute mountain flight to Lukla, the starting point for the trek proper. On the first day of trekking the trail follows the banks of the Dudh Kosi River and the next day traverses through forests of rhododendron and magnolia, passing through traditional villages and monasteries on the way. At the end of the second day you reach Namche Bazaar at 3,440m, a bustling trading village, that also serves as a junction for trekkers. Namche Bazaar is a fascinating place to rest and also shop for last minute items before going higher. The village has two museums, several internet cafes, pizza houses and bakeries. It is recommended to spend an extra day here to acclimatize.

Please see the itinerary in the next tab for further details.

Please note that your guide has the authority to amend or change any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Every effort will be made to keep to the itinerary, however this is adventure travel in a remote mountain region, therefore we cannot guarantee it! Weather conditions, health condition of a group member, an unexpected natural disaster etc can all cause changes to the itinerary. Your guide, however, will aim to ensure that the trek runs according to plan.
