Nepal: Kalapatar and Everest Base Camp


Everest should always be seen with right vision, with elegance, not arrogance. Flanked by such peaks as Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Lhotse and other sky-touching mountains, Chomolungma, or Mother Goddess of the World, as she is called by the Sherpas, is an awesome sight. Join us, during these busy times, on one of the world’s greatest treks up to Kalapatar and Everest Base Camp. Here, after struggling to climb up to 19,000 feet, you can gaze across at a mountain that is 10,000 feet higher than you are and be humbled!

Yet this is not just about mountains, but about people. Along the way, you will visit the villages and the monasteries, learn about the environmental issues affecting the area, and meet the Sherpas and mountaineers who have left such deep imprints on history. In the fall, you can enjoy the Mani Rimdu celebration at Tengboche Monastery!
