Kala Pattar & Everest Base Camp

One of the classic routes through the Sherpa heartland to the foot of the world's highest mountain Mt. Everest 8848m.

Ama Dablam Views from PangbocheKala Pattar and Everest Base Camp is probably the most famous trekking in the world. This Tea-house lodge-based trek follows in the footsteps of the great climbing parties. Trekking through Sherpa country past cultivated fields and small villages, we follow toward the Dudh Kosi River before the hard walking begins as we climb up to Namche Bazaar. Above the tree-line the scenery is stark but spectacular.
