The trek to Everest Base Camp is the most famous multi-day adventure hike in the world for a reason. Taking you into the heart of the Himalayas, the route winds its way up to 5,643m above sea level, offering you unparalleled views of the world’s highest mountain. Along the way, you’ll be immersed in Sherpa culture, soaking up the sounds and sights of the Khumbu region, and creating memories that will last a lifetime
What the adventure involves
It’s easy to understand why trekking to Everest Base Camp is a bucket list item for many. One of the most adventurous, tough, but rewarding hikes in the world, this trail offers phenomenal mountain views, and incredible insights into the lives of Sherpas and others in Khumbu Region. And who better to show you all this than Sherpas themselves?
Elite Exped is an entirely Nepalese-run, with our record-breaking directors Nimsdai, Mingma David Sherpa, and Mingma Tenzi priding themselves on their ability to bridge the gap between western and Himalayan climbing cultures, offering the best of both worlds. Our leader's mountaineering record is unparalleled. In 2021, they were famously part of the first team ever to summit K2 in winter, and in 2019 Nimsdai shattered the speed record for climbing all 14 of the world’s 8,000ers as part of his Project Possible push while Mingma David became the youngest person to climb them. Their safety record is also second to none, and the handpicked guiding team they have assembled to lead Elite Exped’s trips and treks are all trained in the latest high altitude rescue and recovery techniques.
