As there are many routes to the Everest base camp, - Everest classical Trek is no other exception. Embark on the trek of a lifetime with Himalayan Trekkers on this Everest classical Trek up to the footsteps of Mt. Everest. Once the most coveted achievement of seasoned mountain climbers, you can now experience this amazing climb to the base camp with this tea house based trek with relative ease.

Follow the legendary ‘Everest Trail’ from the airstrip at Lukla to the Everest Base camp in a little over 3 weeks.

On this Everest classical trek, you will also visit the exceptional vista point at Kala Patthar and experience the wonderful mountain scenery of the Khumbu region. After an unforgettable flight from Kathmandu to the airstrip at Lukla, prepare to be greeted by crystal clear air and an alpine world dotted with colorful prayer flags fluttering in the cool Himalayan breeze. Following the famous ‘Everest Trail’, we will trek to the prosperous village of Namche Bazaar and onwards, besides the torrential Imja Khola, to the high valley below Everest.

During the course of this exceptional and comfortably-paced trek, we will visit many delightful Sherpa villages, including the stunningly located Thyangboche with its impressive backdrop of Everest and Ama Dablam.

With the promise of breathtaking mountain views and a wonderful insight into the way of life of the hardy Sherpas, this is the perfect trek for first-timers to Nepal and the Himalayas. The paths we will journey through on this holiday to Nepal are generally easy and well maintained as we will stick to the commonly used routes and yak trails. Furthermore, due to the Khumbu region’s long-standing presence as one of Nepal’s most popular trekking destinations, the area delivers numerous options for lodging and relaxation.

The nondescript teashops lining our well-traversed route will provide much respite as we journey onward through the Sherpa villages. However, the altitude (over 3000 m) take their toll on the body differently as compared to traversing the same distance on plains. Elevation hikes are challenging even for fit and seasoned hikers. Hence, we have carefully designed this itinerary with generous resources for acclimatization, including extra days at Namche Bazaar and Dingboche.

It is advisable to ensure fitness levels competent enough to allow continuous walking for anywhere between 4 to 6 hours a day, for several consecutive days. Ideally, fit and active hikers would be able to conquer this trek without any hitches.

Amazing holidays in the Himalayas!!!

Me & my spouse were planning to enjoy our 30th anniversary in the Himalayas. After certain check on the internet, we got Himalayan trekkers who were prompt in answering our queries. We landed on Kathmandu where Raj was there to welcome us for our trek to Everest via classic track.

From 1st  to last day we were under good care and enjoyed every moment in Everest. I can't express my feelings when i was with my soulmate at Everest Base Camp. 

Thanks Raj, Bikey, and team for such a wonderful trip. You guys made our special time more interesting and memorable. Love to be back soon for another adventurous journey. Highly recommended!
