Hey, I'm Lucy. I'm 23 from Wellington, New Zealand and have a love of the outdoors, having been tramping (NZ's version of 'trekking') all throughout New Zealand from a young age with my family. I've been fascinated by Nepal and the Himalayas for a long time and have always wanted to visit. My parents attempted the EBC trek long before I came into existance but unfortunately, due to sickness, they were unable to finish the trek and get to base camp. So its my goal to make it there! I would love to meet other female trekkers, so if there are any solo women out there, I'd love for you to join my trek :)

This is the most popular and iconic trek. 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.

Side trip via Cho La: The most popular of the three passes in the Khumbu region, the trail via Cho La (5420 m) provides stunning vistas along the high route between Everest Basecamp and the Gokyo Valley. With its series of lakes, the Gokyo Valley is probably one of the most beautiful valleys in the Khumbu Region, while the view from Gokyo Re rivals any of the trekking viewpoints in the Khumbu, including a more complete – if a bit further away – view of Mt Everest.
