About Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of Freedom Adventure Treks’ most popular trekking destinations and every year we organize treks for hundreds of our guests. Trekking through the Everest region offers astounding mountain views, and opportunities to get a glimpse into the life of world-famous climbers (the Sherpas). The trek further offers the opportunities to go sightseeing around Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site that is home to a variety of Himalayan floras and faunas. It also gives an opportunity to get a closer look at the highest Buddhist monasteries in the world, and, of course, the most gratifying of them all, the trip to Everest Base Camp itself. Add in the magnificent and majestic views of the mountains from Kalapatthar (the highest point in the trek) this will be a trip of a lifetime.

There are many different routes, acclimatization duration and schedules for this trek. We at Freedom Adventure based on past experiences and keeping in mind the limited vacation duration of our guests; have created an itinerary that we believe is the optimum balance of acclimatization and length of the trek. Freedom Adventure organizes the Everest Base Camp trek to be completed in 16 days, the first day is your arrival in Nepal and on the last day you depart from Nepal. We have scheduled two days for acclimatization while on the trek and combined with days that you are already in the Himalayas during the trek, we believe you will be at low risk of experiencing Mountain Sickness. Of course, If a group of guests requests extra time to acclimatize or spend a few more days in the Himalayas we will be happy to organize as so. But there can be no day reduction on this trek due to the obvious health implications while travelling to high altitudes.
