Island Peak

Great First Time Himalayan Climb With A Visit To Everest Base Camp

This expe­di­tion is a great first Himalayan expe­ri­ence that includes glac­i­er trav­el, mod­er­ate snow and ice climb­ing while ascend­ing a 20,000+ foot / 6000+ meter moun­tain. Nepal is a coun­try of friend­ly peo­ple, mag­nif­i­cent scenery, and a vari­ety of cul­tur­al tra­di­tions. This blend of out­door adven­ture and cul­tur­al explo­ration is a great way to expe­ri­ence the Himalayan Moun­tains — the world’s most impres­sive moun­tain range — and is sure to cre­ate last­ing mem­o­ries and pro­vide you with a sat­is­fy­ing sense of accomplishment.

Flight Information

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 US 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.
