Group Size:

Challenge yourself to trek to the world’s most famous base camp! You’ll stay in traditional Sherpa villages and walk among the mountain gods. There are variations to the classic route that you can take, including flying home in a helicopter. Whichever route you choose, the terrain and high altitude make this a challenging trek that will test your resolve. But the rewards are immense, and we can't encourage you enough to head to Nepal to take on this incredibly beautiful adventure!

Our itineraries

Our three Everest Base Camp itineraries cater for trekkers with different time constraints and fitnesses. Our short itinerary lets you return from base camp via helicopter. This is our most popular itinerary, as it's not as demanding on the body and also gifts you incredible views of the Himalayas from the air. Our Gokyo Lakes itinerary offers a longer and incredibly beautiful circular route, while our Three Passes route is for the seasoned trekker who eats mountain passes for breakfast.

Country info and facts

Here's all you need to know to plan a trip to Nepal and also prepare properly for the high-altitude trek to Everest Base Camp.




Nepali rupee (NPR)


Nepal has one international airport: Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM).

Usually you fly from Kathmandu to Tenzing-Hillary Airport (LUA) in Lukla to start the Everest Base Camp trek, but the former's airport is undergoing renovations and so many domestic flights aren't operating right now.

This means you need to drive south to Ramechhap Airport (RHP) and fly to Lukla from there.

Visa and Immigration
Visa and Immigration

You can obtain a tourist visa quite easily at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu when your flight lands. The Government offers 15- and 30-day tourist visas for $30 (€27) and $50 (€45) respectively. You can learn more in Your Nepal travel questions answered.

Health and Safety
Health and Safety

There are no mandatory vaccinations for travel to Nepal. But be sure to check on the latest requirements in terms of Covid-19. Also note that you need insurance that covers you for trekking up to 6,000 m above sea level. We also advise speaking with your GP beforehand about your travel plans.
