The Everest region is renowned for spectacular mountain peaks, mountain biodiversity, Himalayan lifestyle and the warm hospitality of its inhabitants. The 17 days Everest base camp trek itinerary is specially designed to make it easier for those trekkers who aspire to reach the Everest base camp but are doubtful of their ability to cope with the perils associated with high altitude trekking. As this is a trip of a lifetime, we tread slow and steady, without any rush, to safely scale the Himalayan altitude. The slow ascent allows for a number of rest days to give the body enough time to fine-tune itself to the change. The trek is also a wonderful opportunity to better experience the best of the high altitude Sherpa villages, allowing us ample time to soak in the scenery and admire the simplicity and profoundness of life in the Himalayas. We trek both Everest Base Camp and the nearby peak of Kalapatthar for a close rendezvous with Mount Everest and other peaks.
