Climbing Mount Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek

Stand face to face with Chomolungma — the Goddess Mother of Earth

On this Ever­est Base Camp Trek you’ll be enchant­ed by Nepal, a coun­try of hos­pitable peo­ple, beau­ti­ful scenery, and a large vari­ety of cul­tur­al tra­di­tions. This blend of out­door adven­ture and cul­tur­al explo­ration is a great way to expe­ri­ence the Himalayan Moun­tains — per­haps the world’s most impres­sive mountains.

Our care­ful­ly craft­ed itin­er­ary ensures prop­er acclima­ti­za­tion, allow­ing you to ful­ly enjoy one of the world’s great treks and the non-tech­ni­cal ascent of 18,450 foot / 5624 meter Kala Pat­tar. Dis­cov­er why this has become one of our most reward­ing jour­neys and a Moun­tain Mad­ness Clas­sic, devel­oped by our founder Scott Fis­ch­er. You’ll enjoy our decades of expe­ri­ence in Nepal with the best pos­si­ble ser­vice and a time-hon­ored con­nec­tion to Nepal.

The total num­ber of days for your trip includes all trav­el to and from your des­ti­na­tion, with some excep­tions. Dates list­ed on the web­site start with your depar­ture date from the U.S. and include the day you arrive home. 

For this trip you will need to arrive in Kath­man­du, Nepal on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary. You will cross the date line in mid-flight to Asia, thus los­ing a day. If you are trav­el­ing from out­side the US. your itin­er­ary may require less time to reach Kath­man­du, so all that is required is that you arrive on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary, where Moun­tain Mad­ness ser­vices begin. If you arrive ear­ly, we can assist with extra hotel arrange­ments and activ­i­ties. Oth­er­wise, you can arrive at any time on Day 3. You will be met at the air­port by a Moun­tain Mad­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tive and trans­ferred to your hotel. 

Your return flight home should be sched­uled for the sec­ond to last day of the itinerary.
