This trip is once in a lifetime and will involve Trekking to Everest Base Camp in the Nepalese Himalayas at just under 18,000 feet in height (5380m). This is no mean undertaking and serious consideration needs to be given before taking on this trip. The high altitude can affect your ability to trek and as we would be walking from between 4 and 7 hours on many of the days, is a serious undertaking. We will fly into Lukla at 9,300 ft (2845m) and trek from there.
The trip will depart from Edinburgh or Glasgow or you can fly from your nearest airport if preferred. Please note UK airports only. The cost for this Trek is £1105 excluding food and tips to guides/porters which is an expectation by them on this trek and excluding International Flights. The price does however include the internal flights from Kathmandu to Lukla where the trek commences at around 9000ft and we trek to Everest Base Camp at 18000ft. We will use qualified Guides and a well established trekking company known for their expertise and also for high reviews from previous EBC'ers. Main luggage will be carried by Sherpa Porters and/or Yaks.
This is a once in a lifetime trip and although tough at times, will leave everlasting memories at this immense achievement! The plan is to depart In April and travel into May. This makes for a more interesting EBC group of people as this is around the time the summiting teams are planning their ascent to the top. Please think carefully before RSVP'ing and be prepared to plan and prepare your fitness levels accordingly prior to the departure.
