The Everest Base Camp Trek is the most famous and well-traveled tourist destination in Nepal. Out of 14 peaks in the world which are higher than eight thousand meters, eight of them are in Nepal. On this trek, four of the eight peaks can be seen which includes Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. Towering Himalayan peaks from Everest to Ama Dablam, picturesque Sherpa villages, and sacred Buddhist monasteries are the aspects that define the magical and inspiring landscape of the Khumbu region in eastern Nepal.
Khumbu is the home of Mount Everest (8,850m/29,050ft) – better known as Sagarmatha among Nepalis and Chomolungma among Tibetan-speaking communities. Located in the Sagarmatha National Park (a World Heritage site), many visitors come to this region to glimpse the world’s highest peak but come away with so much more: an appreciation of the local people who make their home in this high and difficult landscape, a spirit of adventure that brings them back to the Himalayas, and often other individual and personal experiences that encourage their return to Nepal.
The Everest Base Camp Trek includes a tour of Kathmandu the capital of Nepal, in addition to a classic lodge trek in the Khumbu region. It has been on bucket list from people around the world, but not everyone is lucky enough to view the Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. Beyul wants to make your dream come true for this adventure while getting you connected to the people and Mountains.

*Trek price and duration could be changed according to your request. Please drop your message below if you would be needing further amendments.
Please be informed that Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight could get delayed depending upon the weather condition. There are cases where flights are delayed for few hours, or even more one or more days. Hence, beyul likes to advise to get prepared for such long waits at either place. Beyul will definitely do best to avoid such unlikely situations to manage appropriate flights. Beyul could also organize Helicopter rescue in such adverse conditions, upon request. Helicopter charges around $3500 and could lift 4-5 person per flight. We would like to suggest for some extra “Weather” days (1-2 days) to accommodate such delays. Such days could be utilized otherwise under no bad weather days.
