Classic Everest Trek

Trip Overview

Everest Base Camp is probably the best known, and one of the most popular treks. It follows the trail used by the first mountaineers who summited Everest. On this trail you will see nature in all its wild and powerful glory. From the high Himalayan peaks - thrust up by tectonic forces as the Indian sub-continent collides with Eurasia - to the deep canyons carved out by rivers and glaciers.

Our tour begins in Kathmandu where we will visit cultural and historical monuments and places of interest. Next day we drive from Kathmandu to Bhandar where our trek begins. We trek from Bhandar to Sete and Junbesi, which are traditional Sherpa villages. We pass through beautiful alpine forests along river valleys.

We follow the trail that leads to Nunthala and trek further to reach Buspa. The trail further continues until we reach Surke and then to Phakding. From Phakding we travel to Namche Bazaar and enter the Bravura region offering great views of the spectacular Himalayan range. Leaving Namche behind we trek along a high path where we have our first sight of Mt. Everest. Walking further we reach Thyangboche Monastery – home to Buddhist Monks. Steady walking following the glacier takes us to Lobuche from where we get to see the panorama of Mt. Ama Dablam, Taweche. Hiking further we reach to Gorak Shep. We carry on our

journey to reach the famous vantage point, Kala Patthar, which offers the unique and wonderful panoramic view of the world's tallest mountains.

Accommodations
In Kathmandu, we will have a 3-star hotel room which will be shared in a twin-share basis and will have a supplement of breakfast alongside. The rooms will have attached bathrooms and will have all the facilities that will at least help you have a semi-urban experience judging from where you come. But, during the trek, we will have to forfeit the luxury of a 3-star hotel in the pursuit of what nature has in store for us and travel through the wildlands in local teahouses, which will be very comforting as well but just not luxurious enough in terms of the facilities provided.
Meals
We can have a myriad a local and international cuisines to choose from during the trek though the list of meals will not be as elaborate as you might think, but still we do have options and they surely do taste awesome. We are very careful for providing you with food that is both hygienic and heavy for sustaining your energy throughout the trek. All kinds of meal fall under the package costs during the trek except for when you stay in Kathmandu where we will only be able to offer the breakfast. And, we will also end our lovely soulful trekking experience with a lovely farewell dinner at the end of our trek in Kathmandu.
Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
Though it might seem very daunting in the face of it, but we are pretty sure an average human being with average walking capability will be able to complete the trek with no trouble. Our guides are very supportive in terms of your walking abilities during the trek and if needed, s/he will change the entire trek stuructre for you as well. (But, that will come alongside its own repercussions, like longer trekking days). Walking in higher altitude will surely be more tiresome than in lower altitude but the transition between the two will be as smooth as possible. We do recommend to consult with your personal doctor before making the trip though just to make sure.   consult your doctor(s) before the trip.
Trip Start Dates and Cost
We have a perfectly customisable trip flexibilty depending upon your preferred dates and times. We are extremely you-specific in providing our services because we think that is what ultimately matters at the end of the day, how much you enjoy the trip.
Additional Information
We will be more than happy to discuss whatever aspects you find confusing in mail or directly in phone if you prefer.

Pashupatinath means "the load of the animals". This temple is the biggest temple in Nepal and is one of the four most important religious sites of Asia. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu God Lord Shiva and is one of the most ancient temples of Nepal built in the 5th Century. This religious site is believed to have existed from the beginning of the millennium when the Shiva Lingam was discovered here. Pashupatinath is situated on the banks of the holy Bagmati river. It is believed that taking a bath in the Bagmati river will help people cleanse soul so thousand and devotees can be seen taking a bath on the bank of this holy river.

What do you get to do here? Circle the gigantic stupa while rotating the prayer wheels. Climb the white dome to view the entire square. Visit Bouddhanath at night to see 100 of burning candles and lamps being lit. Shop in the vendors around the stupa and find a perfect souvenir for yourself.
Boudhanath was built in the 14th century and after the arrival of Tibetans following in the year 1959, this stupa has been the center place of the Tibetan Buddhism. Today it is a place for medication, pilgrimage, and a popular tourist site. From the top, Bouddhanath stupa looks like a giant mandala. In all the Tibetan mandalas, four of the Dhyani Buddhas mark the cardinal points, with the fifth, Vairocana, enshrined in the center (in the white hemisphere of the stupa). The five Buddha represents the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and ether) which are represented in the stupa's architecture.
Bhaktapur Tours 
Bhaktapur, a city where the past breathes into the present. This glorious city used to be the ruling throne of the Kathmandu valley until the ruling king, Yakshya Malla, divided the valley among his three sons. This division in the kingdom broke the unity among the bothers which lead to fall of the kingdom in the hands of the Shah dynasty ruler from Gorkha. Before the kingdom was lost to the Shah dynasty kings, the kingdom was especially renowned for its Malla Yuddha which was a fierce combat between the two wrestlers. Hence one can observe the idols of the muscular wrestles as the trademark of the city. These carved wrestles are found in the various temples as the guardian of the and the Gods.
