Ever since Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay scaled the peak of Mount Everest in 1953, other adventurers have wanted to emulate their feat. Many people nowadays seek the thrill of standing at the top of the world, and we can help you get there. Mosaic Adventure can take you all the way to Everest Base Camp and on a journey through the beautiful Khumbu region and Sagamartha National Park on this 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek.
The Everest Base Camp trek is not for the faint hearted. After twelve days of walking, high altitudes, rocky tracks and some steep inclines that would scare a mountain goat, a feeling of accomplishment awaits you when you arrive at the camp. What makes the experience even better is the knowledge that Everest Base Camp is higher than a lot of the peaks of other mountains!
Your adventure begins after a flight,that is itself breath taking, to the mountain town of Lukla. You will need to bring plenty of SD cards for your camera to snap the million photo opportunities as you trek through the magical Himalayas. With spectacular views of Kwangde, Nuptse, Lhotse, Kangtega, AmaDablam and Everest, your camera will seem to be permanently attached to your face.The bustling Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar is the gateway to the high Himalaya and is an impressive sight not to be missed. Neither are the colourful homes and teahouses that are dotted along the hillside. The approach to Tyangboche is something that will be firmly imprinted on your mind for years to come as you gaze out to the ornate monastery that sits among the most amazing panoramic mountain backdrop you will have ever seen.
As the altitude increases, so does the remoteness of the landscape. You cannot help but wonder how the locals survive in such an environment. As you watch them follow their ancient traditions and live a simple life that is still largely undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of western society, you will wonder if their way of life might be better than the one you have left behind.
After reaching Everest Base Camp, an inevitable sense of achievement will clear all other thoughts from your mind as you truly sit among giants and stare silently at their snow covered peaks. After rejoicing in your conquest of this famous route, we will take you to the summit of Kala Patthar at a height of 5545 meters so you can witness Mount Everest in all her glory. As she towers majestically above the other glistening peaks of the Himalayas, you will gain memories that will last a lifetime. Any concerns you may have had about undertaking this trek will seem further away than sea level.
