Our Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary is designed to offer something uniquely different from what other trekking companies offer, by including a trip up to the rarely visited Ama Dablam Base Camp. Following in the footsteps of the great climbing parties, we trek through Sherpa country, past potato fields, and villages before the hard work begins as we climb up to Namche Bazaar. Above the treeline, the scenery is stark but spectacular. The incredible monastery at Thyangboche's setting against the backdrop of AmaDablam, Everest and other snow-capped peak is lovely. The hike up to Amadablam base camp provides the opportunity to walk from the treeline to high altitude alpine forest and the summer pastures with stunning views of the MahaLanggur range not seen from the main trail to Everest Base Camp. We also grab this opportunity to climb Kala Pathar (5,545m) for the ultimate view of Mt. Everest (8850 m) before finally reaching the Everest Base Camp situated on the Khumbu Glacier.
Let our team make this a memorable experience for you.
