THE OPPORTUNITY

OF

A LIFETIME

Everest One is the only Australian company who actually stay in Everest Base Camp.  

Once you reach the flags, the point where trekkers stop; 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 from our commercial kitchen.

 

If you're brave, you can even have a shower.

 

Everest One provide trekkers with an opportunity to meet aspiring climbers, explore the lower reaches of the Khumbu Icefall and visit the Everest Rescue tent. We also offer the opportunity to trek to EBC during Autumn, where there are usually no climbing expeditions on the mountain.  Travelling at this time of year offers you another rare insight, spending time at the base of the highest mountain in the world, without all the climbers.
 

You will see the most amazing night sky, listen to the continuous, deep resonating sound of the icefall and experience a snapshot of expeditionary life in an environment unlike anything you have ever seen before.

 

The trek to Everest base camp is a comprehensive and colourful journey through Nepal’s most famous valley, the Khumbu, the home of Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8501m).

 

The trail offers classic views of Everest and Lhotse as well as other 8000m giants, Cho Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8463m) and Shisapangma (8013m). The rolling landscape varies from lush low alpine vegetation to dry high altitude scrubland.

 

Inhabiting this harsh land are the Sherpa people, an ethnic group famous for their hardiness, spirit and mountaineering prowess. This trek journeys into the heartland of the Sherpa people providing an insight into their rich Buddhist culture and traditional way of life. Sir Edmund Hillary grew a passion for Sherpas from his early mountaineering years and following Everest, spent his remaining years dedicated to fundraising and bringing development to the region.
 

Our Route begins from the gateway airport town of Lukla at 2840m. Following the Dudh Kosi river on the valley floor, the trail first passes through farming villages of mixed Tamang, Rai and Sherpa communities. We then make a sharp ascent up to Namche, the capital of the Khumbu and the traditional trading centre of Sherpa people. We take a less travelled road to Phortse, a typical Sherpa farming village and the site of the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation’s Khumbu Climbing School. Many Sherpa climbers come from Phortse and have been trained at the Khumbu Climbing School. From here it’s a short trek to Pangboche, the highest permanent Sherpa settlement.

We acclimatise in Dingboche first before trekking the last few kilometres of a high altitude trail to Everest base camp. The view of Everest and Lhotse from Kala Patar, our highest point, is a magnificent reward!

The return route passes through Tengboche and the Tengboche monastery. This is the largest monastery in the region and is open to visitors to share prayer time with monks.

 

Why trek all the way into Everest Base Camp, only to turn around at the flags and not experience all it has to offer?
