Trek to Everest Base Camp
In what has felt like an eternity, the world is slowly opening up again and we at Everest One couldn't be more excited.
Restrictions have eased in Nepal, there is no quarantine requirements and only a single day of self-isolation in most Australian states on your return.
Adventure travellers, who are fully vaccinated are looking to get back out there.
Everest One have been leading groups into Everest Base Camp for over a decade, with industry high success rates, which comes down to our focus on safety, extensive altitude experience and proven itinerary.
Having run climbing expeditions on Mt Everest and Lhotse, we are able to provide unique opportunities which most companies cannot offer.
During the Spring climbing season, Everest One are the only Australian company who actually stay in Everest Base Camp (EBC).
Once you reach the flags, the point where most trekkers stop and take a photo; you will walk past the crowds and continue into EBC, a unique place that you will call home for the next 2 nights.
You will sleep in tents on the glacier, eat in our heated dining tent, and be served fantastic meals prepared by expert cooks in our commercial kitchen.
If you're brave, you can even have a shower.
You will see the most amazing night sky, listen to the continuous, deep resonating sound of the Khumbu Icefall and nearby peaks and experience a snapshot of expeditionary life in an environment unlike anywhere you've been before.
During the Autumn season, we set up our private camp at the base of Kala Patthar, a peak that has great views of Everest. In the afternoon, if your up for it, we will undertake a short climb, giving you those iconic, vibrant sunset views over the face of Mt Everest.
The following day, we trek into EBC and still go beyond the flags where we will explore the lower reaches of the icefall. We spend a bit of time relaxing and soaking up the views with a hot lunch prepared and delivered to us by our expert cooks.
On the trek in, we stay in the same tea-houses we've been using since our first trip back in 2011, chosen for their hygiene, nutritious food and warm hospitality.
We also venture off the main trail, and stay with a local Sherpa family in their home, which serves as a traditional, simple tea-house.
For many, this is a real highlight and true privilege, sitting around the heater at night and enjoying some great food and company.
The trek to Everest base camp is a comprehensive and colourful journey through Nepal’s most famous valley, the Khumbu, the home of Mt Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8501m) and Ama Dablam (6812m).
Everest One guarantee you that this journey is so much more than a trek, and the memories of the Sherpa people and culture will stay with you forever.

What people are saying
I flew into Nepal wanting to stand at the Base Camp flags. Three weeks later I flew out shedding tears after having fallen in love with the country, the culture and the people in it. This was all thanks to Allan and his team.
From the moment we arrived at our hotel and met Al, we knew we were in the best hands. His big beaming smile, his genuine interest and care for those on his team as we sat around and chatted for hours made us feel instantly like we’d know him for years.
Al got to know each of us personally and helped us to achieve our goals. He quickly became a friend that we laughed until we cried with each night over a game of cards or a hilarious story. Al took us so much further than Base Camp.
He introduced us to the most beautiful Nepalese people, and took us into their homes and villages. I sat at a tea house holding his friend’s beautiful little bubba as we sat and talked with the locals.
We cried happy tears as we achieved our goals together and celebrated with a night of beers and dancing at the ‘Let’s Go, Lukla Disco’ on our return. It’s moments like this that run so much deeper in my heart than ticking the box on a bucket list. We experienced something so much deeper than a ‘trek’.
Al humbly got alongside each of us. He encouraged and motivated us so positively along the way. His focus was always on the well-being and safety of his team. He was never rushing us, but instead purposefully stopped us to look up to enjoy the scenery - even pointing out rare musk deer in the forest.
Allan and his amazing team was what made our experience everything that it was. He’s such a top guy he even had a tribute song written for him by his groupies!
My journal the day I was leaving reads “without a doubt the most beautiful thing about Nepal isn’t her magnificent mountains, but instead, her beautiful people.”
Thank you Allan for connecting us to them both in such an amazing way. We can’t wait for next time.
Everyone in our team plan to go back again under his guide and I simply wouldn’t go back to Nepal without him.
