After couple of hours we will get at Gorakshep and continue our journey to Everest Base camp. There is not much elevation gain, but there are a lot of ups and downs, combined with altitude, this can be a tiring portion- but the journey is worth it.

Best trip ever in the lap of Himalayas

Taking us to the most iconic base camp of all at the foot of the greatest mountain in the world, Mount Everest (8848m), this is one of the world's classic treks. Walking through Sherpa country past cultivated fields and small villages, we have time to acclimatise before reaching spectacular high altitude scenery: the incredible monastery at tangboche.

Views of Ama Dablam, Everest and other mighty Himalayan peaks are incredible. As well as reaching Base Camp, we have the opportunity to climb Kala Pattar (5,545 m) for a magnificent view of the highest mountain on Earth.
