- Trip Overview
- Trip Outline
We begin our trip by trekking through the Khumbu valley to help us acclimate to our new home at Everest Base Camp (17,552ft). Along this trek we get to experience the Amazing Sherpa culture, Sleeping in “Tea Houses” and taking in the grandness of the inspiring Himalayan peaks… A new view every step of the way.
Once we arrive at EBC (Everest Base Camp) we will be greeted by Camp staff and given a tour of our home for the next 6-7 weeks. Our facilities at EBC are first class, with individual sleeping tents, a comfortable heated dining tent, as well as toilet and shower facilities. Our Cook is trained to provide clean, healthy food with good variety. Fresh veggies and meat delivered every few days.
On the mountain, we will be assisted by our strong and experienced Sherpa climbing team, As well as Experienced Western Guides. We begin Oxygen use at Camp II and use high flow on summit day.
We are committed to a safe, well planned and skillfully executed expedition. You are expected to show up prepared, fit and healthy.
