Everest Base Camp Treks

Everest Base Camp Treks

Our trek to the base of the highest mountain in the world allows you to enjoy the incredible beauty of the Tibetan Plateau, and walk to a very high altitude on good snow-free trails providing the best views of Everest from either the Tibet or Nepal side. This trek brings you through the basecamp of Everest and allows you a rare opportunity to walk the "Golden Highway" to advanced basecamp (ABC), which at 6400 metres/21,000 feet might be the highest "walkable" point in the world you can reach with only your trekking boots, hiking on good paths. These treks are in the spring, the main climbing season for Everest. You will have a chance to sample expedition life and check out the basecamps of teams from around the world. The trip starts with drive from Kathmandu through the friendship bridge. After completion of the immigration formalities at Zhangmu we drive to Nyalam, the first night. Next day we continue drive to Old Tingri and start trekking to North Everest Base Camp. The trek will follow the historic expedition route from Old Tingri to Rongbuk crossing over the Langma La pass-16,900 feet. Following the route to North Everest Base Camp you will have enough time to explore the Rongbuk glacier below the massive north-face of Mt. Everest. After having the magnificent views of worlds highest mountain scenery you will be back to Kathmandu.

The trek portion will be supported by a expert Nepalese Sherpa team. Our professional chef will prepare all meals and other field staff will take care of camping and transport to the supplies (camping /kitchen materials and luggage) for which we use yaks and/or truck.

DAY 01: KATHMANDU – NYALAM-3600m (BREAKFAST)
Departure at 5:30 hr. from Sahara Holidays Nepal Treks Pvt. Ltd, Thamel. After an approx. 6 hours drive we reach Kodari (China /Nepal Boarder). Further half hr. drive by truck will bring us to Zhangmu. Zhangmu (2300 metres) is remarkable town that hugs the rim of a seemingly no ending succession of hairpin bends down the customs area at the border of China. After the completion of Immigration formalities all check drive to Nyalam. Nyalam (3750 metres) is a funky little town around 30 km before the Nepal border. It has been steadily growing in size and facilities have been improving over the last few years. This no doubt due to burgeoning trade opportunities with near by Nepal. O/N in Nyalam.

From Shegar The Everest access road turns off the Friendship Highway around five km west of Shegar check point shortly after km market 494, from which point it winds and climbs its way 63 km to Rongbuk Monastery and on to base camp.  Although there were probably monastic settlements in the area for several hundred years, Rongbuk Monastery is fairly recent. It was established in 1902 by a Nyingmapa Lama. Perhaps not of great antiquity, it can at least lay claim to being the highest monastery in Tibet and thus the world, at 4980 meters. There were once 500 monks and nums living here but local reports that the number is now only 16. Accommodation and very basic food are available at the monastery. The rooms are comfortable, heated with stoves. O/N in Rongbuk at Tented Camp.
