Everest Base camp and Kala Patthar trek is fairly challenging trek. This classic trek is a variation of the normal Everest trail to avoid the busier standard route and to see Sherpa villages that are less used to visitors. Starting with a spectacular flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, you then trek through the heart of Sherpa country. This challenging trek culminates in either an early morning ascent of Kala Pattar (5545 meters) or the long trek to Everest Base Camp. Kala Pattar looks down on the Khumbu glacier, where the Base Camp is situated in expedition season, and offers superb views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Makalu.

Good acclimatization is the key factor in ensuring that you are successful in reaching your trek objective. Our side of the trek to the lovely village of Thame takes you off the beaten track, and more builds-in additional acclimatization days. Consequently our success rate for clients reaching their objective, be it Everest Base Camp, or looking down on Everest Base Camp from Kala Pattar, is excellent.
