The Himalayas – the youngest mountain range on Earth is home to many of the world’s uppermost peaks, including the highest one, Mount Everest. These majestic mountains are awe-inspiring; the sheer beauty of their snow-capped peaks, fringed by huge glaciers, simply breathtaking. From the 1950s onwards, intrepid men and women have been fascinated by Mt. Everest, thanks to the fearlessness of people like Sir Edmund Hillary and his Nepalese Sherpa mountaineer Tenzing Nargay, the first ones to reach the summit. Since then, many have followed with similar attempts, often losing their lives in the process. But did you know that today it has become possible to glimpse the world’s highest peak? During the past few years, around 37000 people have trekked in the region of Mt. Everest every year, often successfully reaching Everest Base Camp Trek, from where mountaineers would start their grueling climb.
Here at Nepal Intrepid Treks, we value and respect these mountains with a passion since the day we were born. We were able to turn our love for nature’s wonders into our life’s work: Taking you on a journey through these magnificent mountains, all the way up to Everest Base Camp Trek! The trek itself starts at Lukla (at 2850 m), so we will get the adrenaline going by taking you on one of the most exhilarating short plane rides (from Kathmandu to Lukla) you will ever have in your life. This 30 min. flight introduces a top-down, magnificent view of the vast Himalayas in the Khumbu region you will be trekking in.
During your trek you will be passing many other stunning peaks, crossing rivers over hanging bridges, passing through villages where indigenous people live and work, watching amazing sunrises and sunsets, visiting monasteries, learning about the Nepalese culture, flora and fauna, and relaxing in one of the teahouses after a day’s walk.
This spectacular 16-day itinerary starts and ends at the airport, and it is our pleasure to make this journey an unforgettable one for you. We work with the best and most knowledgeable, licensed trekking guides and they will look out for your safety and comfort. The guides are trained for all sorts of situations and have vast experience with the acclimatization process you will experience. They will build in days of acclimatization, make a decision accordingly and take care of your physical and mental needs.
During the day’s walk, you will have regular breaks for a mint tea, hot chocolate or anything else you choose. Since the trek is on a moderate level, people of all ages, from children to pensioners, are able to do Everest Base Camp Trek. At Nepal Intrepid Treks our guides will take care of you, our porters will take care of your belongings and our team on the ground will be on stand-by when necessary. All you need to do is put one foot in front of the other, enjoy the views and come away with an experience you will never forget!
