This is the most popular and iconic trek in the Khumbu. Follow the footsteps of Tenzing Norgay, Edmund Hillary, and those that followed to the base of the highest mountain in the world. En route, you’ll pass the centuries old Buddhist monastery of Tengboche and hike alongside the Khumbu glacier to Gorak Shep, the last permanent encampment before Everest Basecamp. In addition to Everest Basecamp, you will climb to the dizzying height of 5643 m (18,513 ft) and view one of the most magnificent panoramas in the Himalayas atop Kala Patthar. Those with a little more time and a sense of adventure can add side trips via the spectacular Kongma La pass, the Cho La pass, and the Renjo La Pass.
