Where else can you trek remote, rugged mountain trails and witness some of nature’s most spectacular feats, safe in the knowledge that a hot meal awaits you at the end of each day?
Only on Mount Everest.
That’s where you’ll experience the finest this world can offer in terms of nature and community, thanks to the inimitable hospitality of the people of Nepal. Local, ancient traditions and kindness like you’ve never known await you in the remote mountain villages that you’ll pass on your journey to Everest Base Camp.
Ever since the tiny mountain nation opened its borders back in the ‘50s, Nepal has held an irresistible allure over millions of travellers. And now you want in on the action too.
Why wouldn’t you? With iconic mountain scenery and accessible hiking along some of the world’s best-loved climbing trails, your trek to Everest Base Camp will be everything you’re expecting.
And nothing like you’re expecting at all.
Seriously, nothing can prepare you for the things you’ll see. Or for the friendships you’ll make. Or the stories you’ll hear.
But one thing’s for sure. Your life will change the moment you set foot upon Everest and breathe in the possibility ahead of you.
All that’s required to get you there is some careful planning, a great sense of adventure and a little bit of willpower too.
You don’t need years of climbing experience behind you to attempt the trek to Base Camp, but it’s worth remembering that you will be walking 4 – 8 hours every day. Throw in the fact that most of that is uphill and at a high altitude, and getting in some uphill practice walks will come naturally.
Have you got the grit and the guts to accept the challenge and make it to Everest Base Camp? If you’ve read this far, we think you just might.
