EVEREST BASE CAMP
This historic trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364m 17,598ft) is one of the most famous expeditions in the world. Mt. Everest (8,848m), the world’s highest mountain, is known as Sagarmatha “sky head” in Nepalese and Chomolungma “the mother goddess of the earth” in Tibetan.

The scenery is truly breathtaking with mixed forest, flower filled meadows, glaciers, rivers and spectacular mountainous panoramas throughout. Located in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal our route takes us through Sherpa villages, bazaars and Buddhist monasteries. Trekkers come away with great appreciation of the Sherpa way of life, their mountain culture and traditions.

Our itinerary includes 12 days of trekking and has been designed with acclimatisation in mind. This makes the trip more enjoyable and gives everyone the best possible chance of reaching Everest Base Camp.

We also spend two nights in Kathmandu and enjoy time to explore the city. This unforgettable adventure is perfect for those looking for a challenging trek, to the foot of the world’s highest mountain.

ISLAND PEAK

Island Peak is suitable for experienced trekkers who want to climb a 6,000m Himalayan Peak. Our Island Peak expeditions includes the classic Everest Base Camp trek one of the most iconic routes in the world.

After trekking to Everest Base Camp we are well acclimatised and ‘trek fit’ to take on the challenge of Island Peak. Although it is often classified as a trekking peak, standing at 6,189m Island Peak is a tough challenge. Like most peaks the crux of the climb is the summit day where we ascend over 1,000m on mixed terrain. The last two hundred meters to the summit require us to use fixed ropes but it is technically very easy and we provide all the training in days leading up to summit day. The views of the surrounding 7,000m and 8,000m peaks make all the hard work worth while!
