Trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp
(Min. $1,000 deposit)
Your K2 Adventure Begins in Kathmandu.
Kathmandu, a popular destination ever since the country opened its doors to tourists, is a perfect mixture of modern amenities and old-world charm.
You will find yourself drawn to ancient Buddhist stupas and age-old architecture, before enjoying a fine dining experience to close a day of community service and hiking. Visitors are enchanted by the artistic and culinary influences of China, Tibet, and India, with a little touch of the western world weaved in.
The Mighty Himalayas
The mighty Himalayas of Nepal need no real introduction. Home to 9 of the world’s 14 highest peaks, including the famed Mt. Everest, Nepal is every trekkers dream.
Here you’ll find some of the world’s most dangerous roads and challenging treks through the largest mountain range in the world. This commanding range is so significant and vast that you can’t help but feel small standing in its shadows.
The people, culture, and awe-inspiring sights come together to provide you with a powerful reminder of your place in the world, and have inspired countless adventurers to take a step back and ponder life’s most meaningful questions.
Heaven on Earth
Your Nepalese journey continues in the Dudh Koshi Valley. The Dudh Koshi Valley is named after the Sapta Koshi river system that winds its way through the valley.
Fed by seven different rivers, the Koshi drains eastern Nepal and the Mt. Everest massif. The result? One of the most lush and scenic hiking destinations in the world! Massive glacier peaks, deep blue skies, and rich green landscapes will surround you. It is truly a piece of heaven on Earth.
The wildlife here is almost as mesmerizing as the imposing peaks. Grazing yaks and Himalayan Tahir’s are common sites, but what you really want to catch a glimpse of is the adorable red panda or one of the famed cats. Quick spotted cats, powerful Bengal tigers, and elusive clouded leopards all call Nepal home.
Khumbu Glacier Region
In the shadows of Mt. Everest lies a region known as Khumbu, the main Sherpa settlement of the Himalayas and the location of Mt. Everest Base Camp.
Trekking in this region will bring you within sight of Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Everest, among others. These timeless peaks will tower above you as you wind your way through the rhododendron forests, over wooden suspension bridges, and past ancient villages and monasteries.
You’ll weave your way through the icy crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier, follow the forceful river, and feel the spray of the Khumbu Icefall on your face. No matter how far and wide you’ve traveled across the globe, the beauty of Nepal will never leave you.
As with every K2 adventure, your trip to Nepal will focus not only on exploration, but also on community service.
A country on the rebound from the earthquake of 2015, the locals are still rebuilding in a project that experts say will take decades. Every little bit we do is appreciated. Come, do some good, explore, stand in awe, and live the adventure of a lifetime! As the locals would say, Namaste.’
