About this tour

This 15-day trip is unlike any other as you journey through the Himalayas to Everest Base Camp. Walk among giants and tick off a once in a lifetime experience making new friends and unforgettable memories along the way. Surrounded by (literally) breathtaking scenery, you’ll step foot in hilltop monasteries, eat your weight in dahl baht and momos, sip tea in Namche Bazaar and feel the huge sense of accomplishment when you reach the colourful flags of camp. Take on the challenge that many have taken before you and walk in the footsteps of champions. Plus, you’ll be choosing a company with a strong commitment to the rights and fair treatment of porters and trekking guides, meaning you can hike with a clear conscience, knowing you’re doing the trek of a lifetime the ethical way. ALTERNATE ITINERARY: In case of weather conditions leading to cancellations or delays in included flights, this trip will operate on an alternate itinerary. Please see day 1 of the itinerary for more details.Not sure if this is for you? Read our comprehensive guide on trekking in the Everest region here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/theme/walking/everest-base-camp-trekHiking the Himalayas is no walk in the park – this trip includes 12 days of trekking for up to eight hours per day, reaching altitudes of over 5500 m. Depending on the time of year, the weather can be unpredictable, meaning flight delays and cancellations are also common. Ask anyone who has done it and they will say the rewards are worth it, but you must be in excellent health to participate. Think you’re up for it? Find our step-by-step training guide here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/trekking-training-guide-tips/The teahouse accommodation on the trek is very simple, with only basic facilities. Access to electricity points for charging devices will cost extra. Wi-Fi is available at some locations, but connections may be poor.The scenery and conditions vary between seasons. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to trek in and consult this packing guide: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/packing-guide-for-trekking-in-nepal/.This trip includes one or more overnight stays over 3500 m (11,500 ft) where there’s a genuine risk of being affected by Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If left untreated, AMS can be life-threatening. While the vast majority will only feel discomfort, it is not uncommon for a small number of people to need extra care, which your leaders and local staff will provide. All our trips that spend time at high altitudes follow our standard altitude safety measures. A number of medical conditions and medications can also reduce your body's ability to acclimatise and thus will affect your performance at altitude and make you more susceptible to AMS. If you’re worried about any pre-existing condition, you must seek medical advice before booking. You may also wish to discuss medication such as Diamox that may help aid acclimatisation. Read more about AMS here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/altitude-sickness
