The Everest Base Camp Trek
Nepal is wedged between the Himalayas and the steamy jungles of the Indian plains. It is a land of snowy peaks, Sherpas, yaks, yetis, monasteries and mantras. Nepal first opened its borders to outsiders in the 1950s. This tiny mountain nation has been an allure for travellers ever since. The world’s best climbs lie here with trails to Everest and beyond.
Only in Nepal can you trek for days or weeks in mountain scenery, secure in the knowledge that a hot meal, cosy lodge and warm slice of apple pie await you. The sheer diversity that Nepal includes steamy jungle to the icy peaks of the world’s highest mountains. Trekking, mountaineering and rafting in spectacular scenery are just three things Nepal is famous for.
Our Everest Base Camp tours offer some of the most exquisite mountain views in the world, taking in all the sites from Nepalese mountain villages, to waterfalls, to Buddhist temples, to suspension bridges and, of course, Mount Everest itself.
The Island Peak Trek
For the Nepalese, Island Peak is known as Imja Tse and the first Everest expedition party used it as a trial peak. The end of Chukung valley is where the peak is located and a high camp is set for climbers to go to the summit and return to base camp in one day. Because of its easy access, Island Peak has become a popular trek for enthusiastic climbers. Island peak climbing is used as an add on of trek to Khumbu. The walk combines the route to base camp of Mt. Everest and Kalapattar.
