The trek to Everest Base Camp offers a comprehensive and colourful journey through Nepal’s most famous valley: the Khumbu, the home of the world's highest peak Mt Everest (8,848m) and the world's fourth heighest peak Lhotse (8501m).
This trek journeys through the best areas within the Annapurna mountain range with stunning views of the impressive Annapurnas and another lesser known Himalayan giant, Dhaulagiri, which at 8,167m is the 7th highest mountain in the world. The Annapurna Conservation Area is one of Nepal’s most well known trekking areas.
This trip is a rather special one for someone looking for an adventure to climb a lesser climbed peak with a good technical challenge over 6,000m and in a reasonable timeframe. Note: this trip combines 2 peaks!
Makalu is situated approximately 19km to the south east of Mt Everest in the Makalu-Barun National Park bordering Tibet, China. This mountain is the 5th highest mountain in the world and was first climbed in 1955.
Lhotse sits quietly alongside Mt Everest. They are connected by the South Col. Lhotse was previously thought by local people to be a minor peak of Everest, hence its name, Lhotse, meaning ‘South Peak’.
The ultimate dream of many mountaineers is to one day take on one of the biggest mountaineering challenges possible – to climb Mt Everest – so why not climb it with one of the premier teams in the industry, Expedition Base.
