About This Program

Beginning from Lukla, we will walk through all the Sherpa villages on our way to the Everest and back. Stand on the foot of Mount Everest and gaze at the majestic giant all you can.

The Everest Base Camp is where all mountaineers begin their summit of the highest peak in the world. But wait, the journey begins quite before that. You have to walk through gorges, valleys, rivers, forests and villages to reach the base camp itself. And that is what we will do. Although we will not attempt to scale the Everest, we will set foot on it nevertheless. It is not the same but it comes quite close.

Highlights

  • Trek to the foot of Everest, the world’s highest mountain.
  • Explore Sherpa villages and the ancient Thami and Tengboche monasteries.
  • Set out on challenging hikes to Kala Pattar (18,192′), and Everest Base Camp (17,590′)
  • Visit a school established by Sir Edmund Hillary in the mountain village of Khumjung.

Once in a lifetime experience

We had an amazing trek from Lukla to EBC. It is challenging but worth every breath, every step. Love it! Altitude sickness can be a real problem, so you need to ascend slowly, guided by a professional company like Mountain kick and a super guide like Dev. Go slow. slower. Usually it is the people who go too fast get sick.

For me this was truly a ‘bucket list’ trip. Best memories of us were on the way, soaking in the breathtaking out-of-this-world view. It really is a very spiritual place. we are extremely delighted with the arrangements made by Mountain kick. Our guide Dev was cheerful as always and the porters were very friendly too. One of our favourite part of the hike was stopping at Namche for the night, followed by a leisurely stroll adjacent to Shyangboche airstrip then a short hike back down to Namche.
We had an awesome time in the country while the company and the guides made sure we’d come back and trek with them again and again.

Wonderful Trek with MountainKick !!

I would like to thank the team of Mountain Kick, especially my guide Kumar. Recently did the EBC trip with Kumar leading our 9 pax group. The EBC trip was amazing. Breathtaking scenery from day 1 till the end. You feel like a spec in the universe surrounded by majestic mountains that dwarf everything. Truly humbling experience living with Nepalese locals seeing how positive they are and just living fully. I was really moved by the endearing friendliness of all the local people we met, the quality and delicious flavours of the local produce and cooking. The village had only been connected to the electricity grid for 2 years, like the water at the standing tap, the supply kept coming and going, people just cheerfully got on with life, working around these 'small' inconveniencies. We all have so much to be grateful for and this trip just emphasize that!!! If you want to go to Nepal, go with Mountain Kick!!!
