The Everest Region

We become aware of Mount Everest from a very young age. As children, we learn about ‘the world’s highest mountain’ – and although we struggle to grasp its true magnitude, the mere thought of Everest is enough to ignite our inquisitive nature and our sense of adventure. While actually climbing to the highest point on Earth remains a dream (for most!), trekking to Everest Base Camp ‘EBC’ is an achievable reality for many keen hikers.

The trail to Everest Base Camp is the ultimate bucket list hike. Along the way you’re exposed to staggering alpine vistas, a rich mountaineering lifestyle (both historic and present) and you’ll become immersed in the fascinating Sherpa culture. Arriving at Base Camp is an amazingly emotional experience - celebrating the success of your epic journey in the presence of the world’s highest peak, and paying homage to all who have successfully (and unsuccessfully) scaled it.

When you join our Everest Base Camp trek you’ll share the experience with a group of like-minded adventurers, a kiwi trip leader and a team of local Nepalese guides and porters. So go ahead, check out our 'EBC' itinerary, or for those who want the Everest experience at a slightly lower elevation, check out our ‘Khumbu’ trip.

    EBC 2017 Trip

    What an amazing experience! There was so much more to the trek than was advertised. The immersion into the Nepali culture was unexpected and a delight. DK and his crew are professionals! They kept us safe and got us across across the finish line. We had a blast while we were doing it. I can not say enough about our porter team too! What a terrific group of men. Whom ever does your hiring should get a raise. Keep up the awesome adventures.

    5 Stars x 3

    I rated this as 5 stars, "Excellent, the trip of a lifetime", but actually that is not totally true. It is actually 1 of 3 trips of a life time. The other two were the AA Jaguar Tour and the AA Condor tour. All three were outstanding and each qualified as a "trip of a lifetime".

    BEST trip I've ever been on!

    My 17-year old daughter and I went on the Khombu Trip March 12 - 26, 2017 and had the most memorable, amazing trip ever. I've had the privilege of seeing a lot of the world, and this trip to Nepal blew me away. Mel and Gokul were incredible guides who could answer every question we asked, knew all about the history of every place we visited, and you could tell they loved sharing the beauty of Nepal with us. Even our pre-planning was a breeze with the help of

    Have to Experience it to Believe it

    Don't know where to start and don't want to write a book but want anyone who is considering this trek to do it with Active Adventures. Why? I'm 62, still in good health and shape. Have experienced two other treks over the past ten years with other outfitters. Machu Picchu in Peru and Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. There was a huge difference in personal care and attention to expedition details. What impressed me the most was the attention to every detail required to make this trek to Base Camp not only successful but an enjoyable one too. There was not one negative experience that Active Adventure was in control over (lodging, food, permits etc). My mind was put to ease every day when our daily heart rate and oxygen levels were tested and medication was made available to you should you experience the effects of altitude sickness. Our guide’s knowledge of the history and culture of the Nepalese people added to the enjoyment of our journey.

    Great Adventure

    Elder took such great care of everyone on the trip and made us all feel like family. The boys were amazing with the care they took in making sure our every need was met. Shree has a wealth of knowledge about Nepal and the mountains that is invaluable.
