Climb the world's tallest mountain on this bucket-list escape to Mount Everest on a guided tour, with all travel, meals, guides and more included
When you think of Nepal, a lifetime's worth of natural and cultural wonders must spring to mind, but none more so than Mount Everest. The world's tallest mountain, adventure-seeking travellers flock here to embark on the largest challenge of their life and scale to unimaginable heights. Known locally as Sagarmatha, this Himalayan mountain stands in all its glory at a majestic 8,848 metres above sea level, and draws climbers from all over the world to get an unrivalled experience of standing on the top of the world.
If you want to let your inner-explorer loose, then what better way that to take on one of the most epic challenges known to man, and climb to Everest Base Camp? Whilst it may not be to the very tip of Everest, it's still an impressive 5,364 metres above sea level - that's just 500 metres shy of Mount Kilimanjaro. The Base Camp is the gateway to the tallest point on Earth, where mountaineers prepare themselves before conquering Everest. In terms of difficulty, it's a moderate trek through the Khumbu landscape that combines the thrill and adrenaline of coming face-to-face with mighty mountains and the Himalayan way of life. So, prepare yourself for an adventurous and spiritual journey to the hidden paradise of the Himalayas, an unforgettable experience that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
