Trek to the base camp of world’s highest mountain (Mt. Everest) and stay overnight at Everest base camp confronting the highest peak in the world and numerous peaks surrounding your very presence, the warm breath of your nose turns misty telling you are amidst the Himalayas. Views of jagged peaks blanketed by snow as in a fairytale and a chance to spend the night in this dreamland. Of sublime excitement are the experiences offered by the Sherpa villages and culture while on the trek. These are what makes our Sleep at Everest Base Camp trip one of the most exclusive adventure trekking.
This enchanting trip starts with your arrival in Kathmandu and a sightseeing tour of UNESCO World Heritage sites in this beautiful city. The warmth of this city will fade as you catch a scenic mountain flight to Lukla with guaranteed cool weather and a gorgeous landing at an exciting airport. The beautiful Himalayas expose themselves as you begin on a trail to Phakding. In no time the journey begins to entice you with striking views of vast valleys and glimpses of snowcapped peaks including Kusum Khangkaru (6367m) and Thamserku (6603m). Namche Bazaar is a major tourist hub and a stop for acclimatization. Enjoy glorious views of the Mount Everest (8848m) from Namche as you saunter through thickets of rhododendron and pine trees onto the spiritual hub of Khumbu region- Dingboche, Pangboche, and Tengboche. A trek during the spring season, the blooming season for floras including rhododendron, will colour the hills red and the bliss of toiling through the trail is second to none. And then the colourful aura turns stark and barren with nothing in contrast but crystal snow which engulfs a strenuous rocky terrain. The stops at Gorakshep and Kalapatthar are for the exquisite views of Himalayas. Nothing stands between you and the Mount Everest (8848m), Nuptse (7861m), Lhotse (8414m), Pumori (7165m), and Khumbutse (6636m) among others. Top it off with a night among these gigantic wanders of the world with nothing but the sparkling sky as the roof. Hopefully, this moment will be your nirvana.
