Want to experience life at one of the world's highest base camps?
Kathmandu has joined forces with the Australian Himalayan Foundation to offer this once-in-a-lifetime Everest Base Camp trek.
During your 19-day adventure, you'll be guided by a representative of the Australian Himalayan Foundation on a fully supported Everest Base Camp trek. Challenge yourself through some of Nepal's most pristine and awe-inspiring mountain routes while enjoying the hospitality of some of the most interesting and friendly people in the world.
The Everest Base Camp trek is so much more than a physical challenge.
