    Overview:Sagamartha (Everest) Base Camp trek takes us into one of the most spectacular regions

    of Nepal where the Sherpa culture thrives amongst the highest peaks in the world. The

    Sagamartha massif as seen from Thyangboche and Kala Pattar is a sight you will never

    forget, and the hospitality of these tough mountain people will remain with you for a

    long time. This is the traditional trek to view Sagamartha, following the historic trail and

    travelling in true expedition style; it will appeal to those who wish to retrace the steps of

    history to the base of the highest mountain in the world.

    When it comes to spectacular breathtaking mountain panoramas, the Everest base

    camp and Kala Pattar Trek is without equal, if you like to walk, this is one of the most

    inspiring places in the world to do it. After exploring the temples, shrines, bazaars and

    restaurants of Kathmandu we take an exciting mountain flight to Lukla, the gateway toEverest region. The walk to Everest Base Camp from Lukla takes you through lush valleys

    with abundant flora and fauna, past friendly Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries,

    and far above the tree line towards the earth's highest mountains. AmaDablam, Lhotse,

    Nuptse and Mt. Everest tower above you on this demanding but very rewarding trek.

    While passing Buddhist monasteries views of Everest get closer every day. Acclimatizing

    is very important therefore we will have rest days in the villages of Namche and

    Dingboche that will allow us to explore the region and acclimatize. This stunning trek

    visits both, base camp and Kala Patar (5555m), a viewpoint recognised as the best

    vantage point to see Mount Everest which is a premier goal for many adventurous

    walkers in the Himalaya. After trekking to Kalapattar we return at our leisurely pace

    back to Namche and Lukla for our return flight to Kathmandu.
