BUCKET LIST ADVENTURES
After leading trips in Nepal for decades we always come back to this trek as one that is an absolute 'must do' adventure. Following in the footsteps of all the legendary climbers heading to the base of the highest peak in the world is a memorable, rewarding and impressive experience for any outdoor enthusiast. Add it to your bucket list!
Everest Base Camp has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in 1953. To reach this part of the Himalaya within a limited time, we have devised this 14 day trek to Everest Base Camp all the while surrounded by some of the highest peaks in the world.
As well as stunning scenery everywhere you look, your time spent in the country is packed full of cultural experiences as you immerse yourself in the Sherpa way of life. This is a trip you will truly never forget.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
The Everest Basecamp trek suits those who are keen walkers. Each day is normally 4-5hrs of walking, and each member only carries a light (5-6kg) backpack. The walking is not overly strenuous and the path is normally very good although it can be rocky in places. All members have their personal equipment carried by our team of superstar porters.
We would expect people to have 10-12kg of equipment each, this excludes the small rucksack that we each carry with us each day. If you like majestic mountain views then this might just be the trip for you. Not sure whether you're ready? No sweat! Drop us a message and we'll be happy to talk it through with you or take our 'ARE YOUR READY' test to see if you are?
BUILT BY KENTON COOL, 14 TIME EVEREST SUMMITER.
FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF LEGENDS
This trip has been built by Kenton Cool, who was first introduced to mountaineering when he read about Hillary and Norgay’s first ascent on Mount Everest in 1953. Within his 14 Everest summits in 2009 he successfully guided Sir Ranulph Fiennes to a successful Everest summit in 2009.
Kenton knows that for a lot of people summiting Everest isn't going to be possible but experiencing the magnitude of the mountain can be. He also knows how special Nepal and the Nepalese people are which is why he's put together this amazing trip. While Kenton doesn't guide these trips if you go in spring there is every chance you might cross over while he goes for number 15!
