About this tour
Take one of the world’s classic treks: to the most iconic base camp of all, at the foot of Mount Everest (29,029ft/8,848m). This special departure has the added excitement of camping at Base Camp for two nights, a magnificent setting near the Khumbu Ice Fall, at a time when it bustles with expedition parties preparing for their summit attempts. The journey to Base Camp passes through Sherpa country and allows time to acclimatise before reaching the spectacular high-altitude scenery: the incredible Thyangboche monastery, views of Ama Dablam, Everest and other mighty Himalayan peaks.Valerie Parkinson, winner of the Wanderlust World Guide Awards 2021, is leading the 4 April 2024 departure and Sukman Tamang, joint winner of our Leader of the Year Award 2022, is leading the 11 April 2024 departure.
