The Everest Base Camp trek is the most famous trekking route in the world and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable. Nepal is a fascinating country and the trek gives an insight into the lives and culture of the Sherpa people. Our ascent is steady and well paced to best suit the acclimatization needed. Sunrise on the snow capped peaks above the Khumbu Glacier is an unforgettable sight from the summit of Kala Patthar. This trek is one for the lover of high places and those wanting to push themselves to the limit. It is a tough challenge and not to be taken lightly with generally well graded paths but some tougher sections along the Khumbu glacier.

"Thanks so much for all the great work your company provided for us. The great memories that will remain with us forever were: the views, the journey, the incredible Nepalese people, all the local trekking staff, and last but certainly not least the exceptional qualities of your guides. We will definitely return!" - Carolyn and Ian J.
"The guides did an amazing job, and had a wealth of knowledge to offer to anyone interested in learning (for both outdoors experience and bad jokes). I especially owe one of the guides for lending me his "Nepali Phrasebook," I studied it every night, practiced a little every day, and now hold 2-year-old-level Nepali conversations with people everywhere I go. As both a photographer and a person wanting to reach out to another culture, this is invaluable. I'm officially in love with the region and its people, and just wanted to personally express my thanks to you and Mountain Madness for putting it together. I'll talk to you again stateside." - Jason B.
"In summary - I can't wait for my next MM adventure! Til next time..." - Tim C.
"Walking over 100 miles, ascending and descending river valleys, being supported by 15 people and 4 yaks, moving through 10,000 ft. altitude and standing in the presence of Mt. Sagarmatha and the highest mountains in the world was awesome! To walk this holy walk left me at peace with myself. We found no anger amongst ourselves or with our team! We found love and respect of those who supported us! And we ended our trip dancing into the night in Lukla – can’t get any better than that." - Dr. John B.
