Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek & Kala Pattar Overview

The Alpine Ascents Everest Basecamp Trek includes the following:

  • All trips led by Western Himalayan Mountain guides such as Vernon Tejas or Ben Jones.
  • Helicopter to Lukla to KTM or on return to KTM. Air flights may be used on occasion.
  • Full gear check and tour in Kathmandu
  • Quality lodges during the trek.
  • Emphasis on health and safety, as well as mountain, Sherpa, and Monastic culture
  • Side trip to the Sherpa community of Thame

Traveling to these regions with Alpine Ascents offers an uncompromising experience. We dare say that no other organization can provide the combination of expertise, intimate relationships with local Nepalese/Sherpas, and knowledge of the mountains and environment.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is a lifetime experience, steeped in history and natural beauty. Every day brings wondrous experiences. One is peppered with mountains of the extreme and insights into a deeply rooted Buddhist culture while hiking through a literal museum of climbing history. Our Everest Base Camp Trek combines awe-inspiring nature and immersion into the timeless village life, a rare opportunity in an ever-changing world.

Join Alpine Ascents for your EBC Trek

All trips are led by Alpine Ascents guides, adding over 20 years of rich climbing history (in addition to Sherpa and monastic culture) to your experience. Our guides are medically trained, which contributes to the likelihood of a healthier trek. (Most outfitters simply hire local guides to lead their trips). We work closely with every trekker, prior to the trip and on the trail, to make each day as outstanding as possible. Having an experienced Himalayan expert lead each trip adds a huge cultural dimension as our guides are not only extremely knowledgeable but are trained teachers and actively engage trekkers during the expedition.

Everest Base Camp Trek Logistics

When it comes to trekking EBC, Alpine Ascents mountaineers provide the most comprehensive program available. From Guides to distinguished Sherpa, to quality meals and lodging, we believe that the trekker should be lost in the world of the mountains unfettered by the rigors of preparation and logistics.

Alpine Ascents trekkers lodge in Sherpa village tea houses (similar to a homestay). Many are located in the remote foothills of the Himalayas, giving trekkers a rare look into traditional and monastic communities. We access these villages through our longtime Sherpa friends with the belief that a sharing of cultures is paramount in our understanding of the world. While the environs are often primitive by western standards, they are balanced by the warmth and tremendous support of the Sherpa people.

Seth and Devon were exceptional, and I would climb with them again.

  • Dear Alpine Ascents: Double-Wall vs. Single Wall Tents?

    Dear Alpine Ascents, I’m gearing up for an 8-Day Alaska Course and I see that you require double-wall four season tents. I found a single wall four-season tent that is supposed to be bomber (saw photos of it being used in the Himalaya) and it would save me 5 pounds. What gives?  Sincerely, Trying to […]

    by Paul Koubek  As one of the western guides fortunate to work with the Alpine Ascents Kilimanjaro Program, when I was asked to write a blog post about any topic I wanted, the first thing that came to mind for me about my experience on Kilimanjaro was: the people!
