When you think of traveling in the Himalayas of Nepal, do you think of the Everest Base Camp Trek? The mighty Mount Everest has been a household name since 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made history by reaching the mountain’s 8,848-meter summit.

Our seven-day trekking package is the perfect combination of challenge and reward, with steep staircases leading to splendid views of fertile valleys and high-altitude passes ascending to tremendous panoramas of the Himalayas.
