Trek to the base camp of worlds highest peak - Mt. Everest

Nepal’s most iconic and world-renowned trekking route, Everest Base Camp is a highly venerated trekking region in the entire Himalayan range. The entire trek is filled with amazing sceneries and breathtaking views of mountains and Himalayas of Nepal. While on this amazing trail, turbulent white rivers, green grasslands, windy hilltops, and lush green jungles are all too common.

The Everest Base Camp trail passes through the Sagarmatha National Park, an UNESCO world heritage site, and is inhabited by the Sherpa people. Your trek will be full of unique Sherpa villages, monasteries, food and cultural experiences.

Red Carpet’s Everest Base Camp Trek involves arriving at Kathmandu and exploring the warrens of Thamel and roaming around the beautiful Basantapur Durbar square complex, followed by a scary (but safe!) flight to Lukla airport (in the Everest region), and trekking for the next 11 days through Himalayan settlements / stops at Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorak Shep all the way to Mt. Everest Base Camp at 5,365 meters above sea level.
