Everest is more than a mountain and the journey to its base camp is more than just a trek. Along a route dubbed by some as "the steps to heaven," every bend in the trail provides another photo opportunity — beautiful forests, Sherpa villages, glacial moraines, and foothills. For active adventurers not afraid to break a sweat, our full trekking support staff will bring you close to local cultures before opening a window to the top of the world.
Arrive at any time.
Catch the mountain flight to Lukla,enjoying stunning views of the Himalayas. Meet the Sherpas and begin the trek to Phakding.
The mountain flight into Lukla is spectacular and the landing an exciting beginning to the trek – one end of the runway is 60m (197ft) higher than the other. The flight is on a small Dornier / Twin Otter flight and flight duration is generally around 25 – 30 minutes.
Once in Lukla, head through pine and cedar woods along the Dudh Kosi to Phakding. Spend the next three nights trekking in the area and acclimatizing in preparation for heading to base camp. This is a challenging trip and involves difficult trekking at high altitudes but the whole experience is simply awe-inspiring!

If only the magic of the Himalayas could be bottled up. The hike was a pleasure from start to finish with picturesque sceneries. Made it to the base camp thanks to our great Sherpas. Not for the faint hearted but oh so worth it.Overall Rating
This was my first group tour,and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. While I found some parts really diffcult, I would go back and do it all again in a heart beat!Overall Rating
A smoothly-run trip, seemingly effortlessly organised, though clearly with a great deal of work done by the guides and porters behind the scenes. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, despite stomach upsets!Overall Rating

Overall the trip felt well planned, and very memorable.Overall Rating
Loved it and considered all fellow trekkers my friends. Accomplished my goal of reaching the base camp. Enjoyed the people and culture, but did not find shangri-La. Come to the realization that happiness index is a waste of time study. People in Nepal is the same as everywhere else. Happiness is within and can be found regardless location and environment.Overall Rating
Going on this trip was exactly the physical challenge, spiritual refreshment, and overall adventure that I was seeking.

Fantastice experience! The Country, people and adventure was exactly what I was hoping for.Overall Rating
Overall I very much enjoyed my Everest experience, and yes it was an adventure and not a trip. The guaranteed week was great in terms of weather (just post monsoon but not too cold), and traffic on the trail - much busier on our way down. There were a couple of very long and arduous climbs, but I think my partner and I arrived prepared for the challenge. We very much enjoyed the people and the country - I am already missing the prayer flags and yak bells, and would like to return for another trek!Overall Rating
The Mount Everest Base Camp trek and tour was one of the greatest physical challenges of my life. Thank you G Adventures for providing me with a great crew and for being so well organized.Overall Rating
Awesome! Amazing! Incredible! These words don't even begin to describe the overall experience of trekking through the Himalaya's. From the minute we landed in Lukla I knew that this was going to be the trip of a lifetime. Although I have been fortunate enough to have travelled through more than 21 countries and participated in 2 other G Adventures tours, this was by far the best experience!!Overall Rating
Well I must say that it is no small walk in the park when you book a trip to Everest Base Camp. It will probably be one of the biggest highlights of my life and I couldn't imagine that anyone would say any different had they walked in my shoes. Thanks for providing me with the tools to acheive this.Overall Rating

This was a trip of a lifetime. It is a pure test of fitness and endurance, but it is worth every bit of pain to reach such a lofty goal that few get to experience. The scenery is the most spectacular I have witnessed in the world and the exhilaration you get when you reach Base Camp is without compare.Overall Rating
