Embark on a mesmerizing journey through the Everest region with Adventure Metro Everest's 14-day trek to the Everest Base Camp! This renowned trek in Nepal, undertaken by many annually, is hailed as one of the country's premier adventures. A fusion of adventure, culture, and spirituality, the Everest Base Camp trek promises an immersive experience. Take a flight to Lukla, home to the world's 38th highest airport, explore iconic Sherpa villages, ascend to Everest Base Camp nestled beneath the world's highest peak, and witness a breathtaking sunrise from Kala Patthar Hill, all encapsulated in Adventure Metro Everest's 14-day trek!

Upon your arrival at Kathmandu's international airport, the Adventure Metro Everest team extends a warm welcome with a traditional ceremony involving a flower necklace and a blessing. Embracing the Nepalese saying, "Guest is God," our team ensures your comfort and transfers you to your booked hotel in Kathmandu. After a brief rest and refreshment, we convene to discuss the Everest Base Camp trek itinerary and route. The remainder of the day is yours to explore Thamel, known as a trekker's paradise, filled with restaurants, trekking gear stores, boutiques, souvenir shops, and numerous hotels and guesthouses. Our adventure begins with an early morning flight to Lukla, offering a thrilling experience as we land at the world's 38th highest airport. Witnessing the transformation of high hills into the grandeur of the Himalayas is truly incredible. After meeting our Adventure Metro Everest porter team and conducting a final gear check, we commence the Everest Base Camp trek at an altitude of 2,850m/9,350ft. Our initial destination is the village of Phakding at 2,610m/8,563ft, where we trek through lush forests along the Dudh Koshi River, providing an ideal introduction to the Himalayan trails. Following a night in Phakding, we face a challenging ascent to Namche Bazaar, the largest Sherpa village in the Everest region, situated at an altitude of 3,440m/11,286ft. A day of acclimatization in Namche Bazaar includes an exhilarating hike to the Everest View Hotel, offering the first glimpse of Mt. Everest. The following day, we continue our trek to Everest Base Camp, passing through the ancient Tengboche Monastery and experiencing the ever-improving views of the white Himalayan peaks.

Namche Bazaar is a vibrant hub for trekkers, featuring all the essentials and serving as the last supply post before the onward journey. A day spent here aids acclimatization, ensuring a gradual adjustment to the high altitudes and minimizing the risk of acute mountain sickness. Adventure Metro Everest leads an acclimatization hike to the Everest View Hotel, followed by exploration of the Everest Photo Gallery and the Sherpa Culture Museum. Continuing our trek, we head to Dingboche, our second acclimatization destination, where stunning views of Mt Everest, Mt Ama Dablam, and Island Peak await! The following day involves a challenging hike to the Nagarsang Peak, offering breathtaking panoramic views of various Himalayan peaks. After a night in Dingboche, we proceed to Lobuche, serving as a crossroads for trekkers heading to the Gokyo Lakes. The subsequent trek leads us to Gorakshep, which lays just a short distance from Everest Base Camp. A memorable hike to Everest Base Camp, situated alongside the Khumbu Glacier, culminates in an extraordinary sense of accomplishment!

The next day, we ascend to Kala Patthar hill in the early morning, using head torches and flashlights to witness the sunrise over Mt Everest and its neighbors. The amazing view serves as one of the main highlights of your Everest adventure. After breakfast in Gorakshep, we begin our descent, stopping at Pheriche and Namche Bazaar for overnights before reaching back Lukla. A celebration party in Lukla, though optional, serves as a fitting conclusion before your flight back to Kathmandu, marking the end of Adventure Metro Everest's 14-day Everest Base Camp trek.
