Embark with us on this 17-day classic trek to the base of Mt. Everest through the villages of the Sherpa people, who are well-known for their excellent mountaineering skills and warm hospitality. The spectacular, breathtaking mountain scenery makes this trek to Everest Base Camp a favorite of all trekkers.

Every day you'll have the opportunity to see the many peaks from different angles while passing through the beautiful villages, forests, mani walls, chortens, monasteries, suspension bridges, etc. During this trek, you will pass through the captivating forest of rhododendron, oak, pine and juniper, while often crossing paths with yaks. Himalayan jharals and monal, Tibetan snowcock, blood pheasant, etc. can be seen often throughout the trail.
