Among the entire greatest walk in the world The Classic walk to the Everest Base Camp following the footsteps of legendary climbers is the most iconic one. If walking is the part of your lifestyle then walking through the most exotic landscape of Khumbu region must be in your wish-list.
This lodge base trek goes through the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay and gives plentiful time to get adapted with the prevailing environmental circumstances and enjoy the out of this world view. The trek starts with a short airstrip from Kathmandu to Lukla through the Himalayas. Landing the aircraft in Lukla airport is regarded as one of the challenging tasks, but thanks to our experienced pilot as they are extraordinarily skillful landing the plane in short steep runway.
It is from Lukla where the real walk begins. We will start with a gradual uphill walk through a alpine forests and Sherpa villages which ultimately takes us to Namche Bazaar. Namche is largest Sherpa settlement is whole Khumbu region where you will find Illy coffee and brownie are available and ideal place for getting acclimatized. Leaving Namche behind us we will cross Dudh Koshi River and climb to Tengboche which is known for its monastery set in the lap of Ama Dablam, Everest and Lhotse. From here we will make our Periche and then to Gorakshep which ultimately takes to Kala patthar. The view of Everest along with many other Himalayan giants seen from here is just splendid. After this we will retrace our path back to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu where this larger than life journey comes to an end.
You will be transferred to Tribhuwan International airport for your onward journey.

Having booked online, and only spoken to an cheerful and confident Kedar Neupane of Actual Adventures, we did arrive in Kathmandu with some trepidation of what was in store.
Our unfounded fears turned to extreme satisfaction over the next 14 days when three families and a friend trekked to the Everest Base Camp, cheerfully and ably guided by Binod Nepal.
Responsive, responsible, happy and fully in command, Binod successfully managed this amateur motely group. Requests were always fulfilled to satisfaction. Unusual and untimely ones too! Always with a smile.
Our abrupt changes in plan were heeded to, at no extra cost!
Our assistant guides Anurag and Dilip were equally helpful. The porters were happy youngsters who also exchanged pleasantries throughout the trek.
No hesitation in recommending Actual Adventures for a wonderful time on the Himalayas!
