"Base Camp"

Everest- 15 days

The top of the world.

Ascent to the mythical Everest Base Camp, where all the legends begin.

We will fly to Lukla to start the ascent to the mythical Everest Base Camp, and we will go up to the viewpoint KalaPattar 5,550m, from where we have wonderful views of the highest mountain in the world next to Lhotse, Nuptse, Changtse … all peaks of more than 8,000m altitude, with the incredible Khumbu glacier right at your feet.

A great sight to behold.

The route will take us through beautiful villages with Buddhist tradition to Namche Bazar, the friendly Sherpa village and the beautiful monastery of Tengboche. We will also cross with donkey caravans and yaks that carry supplies to the high altitude camps, and we will share the route with expeditions that are going to climb the great summits.

Of course, we will visit Kathmandu and its monuments declared as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

A trek full of sensations that you will take with you forever.

The trekking days will not be very long, about 5 hours walking from 10 to 15 km / day, although there are harder days than others. Still, for some people there is a risk of discomfort due to the altitude, as we fly directly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2,860m) so that the body does not have much time to acclimatize. To prevent this situation we will have an acclimatization day in Namche Bazar and we recommend that you review the section on altitude sickness.

We have all heard of the highest peak in the world and for those of us who like the mountains it is a dream to be able to see it in person. But today that dream is much closer than you think. If you like hiking and have time, don’t think twice about this trip. Let me tell you …

To climb the highest peaks in the world you generally need to be very strong, have a lot of experience and also have a lot of money to prepare for this type of expedition. But to tour the Solu-Khumbu area (as locals call the Everest area), you just need the desire and a good pair of legs.

In this area you will see four of the fourteen highest mountains in the world (Everest, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar and Cho Oyu) and many other peaks that exceed 7,000m. In addition we will cross impressive glaciers, suspension bridges, Buddhist temples and 3 mountain passes of more than 5,000m.

We will fly from Kathmandu directly to Lukla (2,860m) and start walking from here. This means that we have not had much time to acclimatize and we may experience some discomfort due to the altitude. That is why we will make an acclimatization day in Namche Bazar, where we will take a walk at a higher altitude to return to sleep in Namche.

I am not going to say that this trek is for everyone. There are sections of this route that can be quite challenging and together with the height it can become a fairly demanding activity. But it all depends on how you plan your trekking. You can do shorter stretches and take more breaks. I have seen people of 70 years walking calmly, at their own pace, and finally achieve their goals thanks to their patience, their mental strength and the experience of their guide.
I have also seen younger people in Namche Bazar with Altitude Sickness who explained to me that it was the second time they came and that they had to return without being able to reach Base Camp. If you do not have enough vacation time to do the acclimatization, it may be better to change your goals for a trip that doesn’t go so high (sometimes the rush makes you reckless).

The good thing about these areas is that they are totally adapted for tourism, and every hour and a half you will cross a small town where you can stop to eat, have tea or sleep. You do not need to carry food beyond your nuts, chocolate, muesli bars or other goodies … You do not need to carry a tent or mats. Walking without so much weight through these places is a luxury, since you can focus on enjoying yourself.

On the other hand, because of these amenities in high season it can get a little crowded. Along with the caravans of burritos and yaks, and the porters of the great expeditions, this is a bustle of people. Starting at Lukla it is already difficult to feel like an explorer. If you are a sociable being there is no problem and you will surely make many friends along the way, you will share many experiences with other tourists from all over the world. You will commonly form groups with which you end up walking much of the trip.

The trekking from start to finish is truly spectacular and meets all expectations.
