Trip Introduction

Everest Advance base camp trek and expedition takes you as close to the summit of Everest as any non-climber can go. This is an incredible adventure to Camp 3 (6,400m) and the base of the North Col via the east Rongbuk Glacier. Nowhere else on this planet can you hike on trails to such altitude without the need of crampons, ice axes or mountaineering skill. This is the world’s highest trek; we go to extreme altitude and camp in difficult conditions. You must be fit and tough.

We begin the trek after driving 960km Friendship Highway through some of the most amazing landscapes on Earth. We pass small Tibetan settlements, nomadic herdsmen wandering across the wide arid plains and awe-inspiring mountain peaks. Equally as fascinating is the wealth of cultural interest and we will have plenty of opportunity to explore this side of Tibet, both in Lhasa and the other towns we pass through on our journey to Kathmandu.
