Everest Base Camp Trek with Pem Dorjee Sherpa September 2017
Join two-time Mt. Everest summiteer, Pem Dorjee Sherpa, on a three week trip to Nepal, including trekking to Mt. Everest Base Camp. This adventure combines cultural insights and sightseeing in the Kathmandu Valley along with the famous trek to Everest Base Camp. This exciting journey in the high Himalayas gives you the opportunity to witness Mt. Everest from the ground while taking in some of the most breathtaking scenery on the planet. Since the days of early climbing expeditions, this 29,035 foot mountain has a lure of its own, drawing climbers to scale it and trekkers to gaze at its icy faces. Naturally, the trail to the base camp of the mountain has become one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal. Few people return from the Everest region unmoved by the experience of being surrounded by the highest mountains in the world.
The trek begins with a flight into the tiny airstrip of Lukla. You will spend several days hiking through the homelands of the Sherpa people. You will visit their villages and Buddhist monasteries, and be surrounded by views of Mt. Everest and neighboring Ama Dablam, considered by many to be among the most beautiful mountains in Nepal. Stroll around Namche Bazaar, the busy market town in the heart of Sherpa country, and soak up the magnificent mountain scenery. Without doubt, the highlights of the trek are the awe-inspiring views of some of the most amazing mountains in the world, which unfold as you venture into the Khumbu Valley; not forgetting, of course, the personal sense of achievement in reaching Everest Base Camp at 17,500 feet.
