With eight of the world's ten highest peaks, Nepal is renowned for its spectacular mountain vistas. The Everest Base Camp trek is the grandest walk in the land of the Himalayas. Trekking through the Everest region offers astounding mountain views, and opportunities to get a glimpse into the life of world famous climbers (the Sherpas). The trek further offers the opportunities to go sightseeing around Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site that is home to a variety of Himalayan floras and faunas, to get a closer look at the highest Buddhist monasteries in the world, and, of course, the most gratifying of them all, the trip to Everest Base Camp itself. Mount Everest, standing at 8,848m has had a lure of its own, drawing avid climbers and trekkers to gaze on its magnificence. Your journey through this majestic region will immerse you in the vibrant local culture and traditions, colorful festivals and monasteries, picturesque villages and the gentle spirit of the Sherpa people.

To avoid the risk of missing international flights, it is always recommended to have 2 or 3 days extra at the end of the trip to fly international, because Lukla airport is sensitive to fly and the chance of delay or cancellation of the flight is always there due to unforeseen circumstances and sudden weather transitions. 

Also be prepared to pay some extra money for Helicopter charter flights (approx. USD300-400) if the regular flights are cancelled or delayed for few days. Make sure that you have full-fledged Insurance at home to cover it.

If in case you gain those days, then you can spend extra days to go to Chitwan National Park, white water rafting or Pokhara valley tour or do Yoga, massage etc. at the end of the trip.

If in case the flight is cancelled or delayed more than 2 days, we will divert your trek to Annapurna Base Camp alternatively. In this case, we would give the complementary of Everest scenic flight for the betterment of your trip without any additional charge
