Family trek to Everest Base Camp
During the 16-day Family trek to the Everest Base Camp, we can witness spectacular mountain views, catch a glimpse of the daily life of the renowned mountain climbers known as Sherpas, explore Sagarmatha National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and visit high-altitude Buddhist monasteries. One of these monasteries, Tengboche, holds significant religious importance for Buddhists. Spending a night or two in Namche Bazaar allows for proper acclimatization, ensuring a comfortable hiking experience. This trek is specially designed for families or beginner trekkers who are in good health with average physical fitness. The ample distance covered between daily itineraries, a steady gain of altitude and separate rest days ensures that we are properly acclimatized to fully enjoy our trek to the Everest base camp. Walking at high altitude trails with proper acclimatization and a steady pace will help avoid getting altitude sickness. Trekking to Everest Base Camp also presents the opportunity to embark on the same epic journey taken by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953. With the guidance of a Sherpa, we can reach the base camp of the world's tallest mountain and even climb Kala Patthar for breathtaking panoramic views of Everest and other Himalayan peaks. The thrill and sense of accomplishment that comes from experiencing the power and grace of this magnificent mountain up close is unmatched.
