Follow the iconic trails to Everest Base Camp
Taking you to the most iconic base camp of all, at the foot of the highest mountain on Earth, Mount Everest (8848m), this is one of the world's classic treks. Walking through Sherpa country past cultivated fields and small villages, we have time to acclimatise before reaching spectacular high altitude scenery: the incredible monastery at Thyangboche, views of Ama Dablam, Everest and other mighty Himalayan peaks. As well as reaching Base Camp, we have the opportunity to climb Kala Pattar (5545m) for a breathtaking view of Mount Everest.

Accommodation details
Hotels & Lodges
3 nights standard hotels, 12 nights teahouses.
Most lodges now have twin bedded rooms but you should still be prepared to sleep in multi-bedded rooms on the occasional night. In the last decade the quality of the lodges and the food has improved significantly, but you should expect fairly basic accommodation at the highest points of the trek.
Some lodges now have showers (charged at £2-£4 per shower) and all have basic toilets.

There is no single supplement available whilst on the trek. Accommodation in Kathmandu is on a twin share basis, but single rooms are usually available at a supplement. Please let us know as early as possible if you would like a single room while at the hotel in Kathmandu.
These are ‘land only’ prices which require you to book your own flights and join the rest of the group on Day 1 of the trip. For more information please see Trip Notes

Interesting facts
Culinary tour in India, finger-licking!

If you are a foodie (cmon, which one of us is not? hehe), making a cuisine tour in India is a must for you! When you think about India, I bet exotic is the first word that pops up in your head. Exotica is the very essence of this country with India being truly unique in every possible aspect: culture, traditions, lifestyle and, of course, cuisine! When it comes to traditional Indian food, it can be worth exciting and intimidating. Spices are a must in almost every dish but mind the quantity of them used in every of them. Sometimes a dish is seasoned with spices so generously, that you feel like capable of drinking the entire Indian Ocean. In this blog, we will cover some of the most popular cuisine tours in India that will not make your stomach turn :)
